Termination and Survivability of Terms
These Terms of Service set forth herein continue to remain in full force and effect until such time as terminated by either party. In the event that you terminate or breach these Terms of Service, you will forfeit your right to any and all payments you may have made for pre-purchased access to the Application or Service. You agree and acknowledge that you are not entitled to any refund for any amounts that were pre-paid by the user prior to any termination. LiveStar reserves the right, in its sole discretion and without notice, to immediately terminate your user account and access to any or all of the Application, related Services or any portion thereof, at any time without further notice or compensation. Likewise, you retain full discretion to end or terminate your user account and discontinue use of the Application or Service at any time, pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. The provisions of Sections 5 through 9 and 13 through 24 shall survive any termination of this Agreement.
LiveStar may assign these Terms of Service, in whole or in part, at any time. Notwithstanding, you may not assign, transfer or sublicense any or all of your rights or obligations under these Terms of Service without LiveStar’s express prior written consent.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless LiveStar from and against all claims, losses, costs and expenses (including without limitation court costs and attorney’s fees) arising out of (a) your use of, or activities in connection with the Application or Service; (b) any violation of these Terms of Service by you or through your Account; or (c) any allegation that any Content that you make available via the Application infringes or otherwise violates the copyright, trademark, trade secret, privacy or other intellectual property or other rights of any third party.
A printed version of the Terms of Service and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to the Terms of Service to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. You and LiveStar agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to the Terms of Service or the Application must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action arose; otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred. You agree that the provisions in this paragraph will survive any termination of your account(s) or the Agreement and/or Licensed Application.
By your access to and use of the Application and Services you hereby specifically acknowledge, agree and consent that you waive your right to a trial, by jury or otherwise, and that you agree that any suit, action, proceeding, dispute, controversy or claim (“Dispute”) arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service, the Application or any of the transactions contemplated herein or related to these Terms of Service or the Application or services thereon (including without limitation, statutory, equitable or tort claims) will be dealt with in accordance with the following procedures. All parties shall first attempt to negotiate all Disputes informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating any arbitration. Such informal negotiations shall commence following the receipt of a notice in writing by one of the parties sent to the other. LiveStar will send its notice to your billing address and a copy to the email address you have provided to us (if any). You may send any notice to LiveStar to the address listed above.
If the Dispute is not resolved through informal negotiations the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) shall be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. If you are a resident of the United States, any arbitration will take place at any reasonable location within the United States convenient for you. For residents outside the United States, any arbitration shall be initiated in Hong Kong and shall be administered, using the English language, by the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (the “HKIAC”) under the HKIAC Administered Arbitration Rules in force at the time of delivery of the arbitration notice, by one arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving intellectual property and commercial contract disputes, who shall be selected from the appropriate list of HKIAC arbitrators. The determination of whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by an arbitrator rather than a court. The prevailing party in any arbitration or other proceeding arising under this Agreement shall be entitled to receive reimbursement of its reasonable expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees, expert witness fees and all other expenses) incurred in connection therewith. Judgment upon the award so rendered may be entered in a court having jurisdiction or application may be made to such court for judicial acceptance of any award and an order of enforcement, as the case may be. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party shall have the right to institute an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable relief pending a final decision by the arbitrator. Use of the Licensed Application is not authorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of the End User License Agreement, including without limitation, this section.
The parties agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between you and LiveStar individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (1) no arbitration shall be joined with any other; (2) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (3) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.
Jurisdiction and Choice of Law
To the extent not covered by the Dispute Resolution provisions above, any disputes between you and LiveStar shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the courts located in the Hong Kong, and shall be governed by, and will be construed under, the law of Hong Kong, without regard to choice of law principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree that if you choose to access any Services from outside of the United States, other laws may apply and those laws shall affect this Agreement only to the extent required by such jurisdiction. In such a case, this Agreement shall be interpreted to give maximum effect to the terms and conditions hereof.
If any part of these Terms of Service are determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Terms of Service shall continue in effect.
These Terms of Service, including the documents expressly incorporated by reference, constitute the entire Agreement between you and LiveStar with respect to its subject matter. This Agreement supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications, whether electronic, oral or written, between you and LiveStar with respect to its subject matter and you represent that you have not relied on any such communications in accepting this Agreement.

LiveStar will respond appropriately to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), as set forth in our DMCA policy, currently at: www.LiveStar.com/DMCA.
Our performance of these Terms of Service is subject to existing laws and legal process, and nothing contained in these Terms of Service is in derogation of our right to comply with governmental, court, and law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your use of any Services or information provided to or gathered by LiveStar with respect to such use.
Any heading, caption or section title contained herein is inserted only as a matter of convenience, and in no way defines or explains any section or provision hereof.
No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder will be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.
Notwithstanding anything else in this Agreement, no default, delay or failure to perform on the part of LiveStar shall be considered a breach of this Agreement if such default, delay or failure to perform is shown to be due to causes beyond the reasonable control of LiveStar.
The parties hereby acknowledge and agree that LiveStar would be irreparably damaged if these Terms of Service were not specifically enforced. Therefore LiveStar shall be entitled, without bond, other security, or proof of damages, to appropriate equitable remedies with respect to breaches of these Terms of Service, in addition to such other remedies as LiveStar may otherwise have available to it under applicable laws.
The parties agree that all correspondence relating to this Agreement shall be written in the English language.
