If you discover any Content on the Platform featuring any minor person for whom you are the parent or legal guardian, and such Content was uploaded to the Platform without your consent, you can send us a takedown request at [[email protected]], or you can click on the relevant Content’s “Report” link available directly on the Platform, which will trigger a notice to us to institute a review and takedown of such Content.

To the extent that the arbitrator deems reasonable, the arbitrator may conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances. Any in-person appearances requested by the arbitrator shall be held in Las Vegas in the State Nevada. The arbitrator’s decision shall be based upon the substantive laws of the State of Nevada without regard to its principles of conflicts of law. Arbitration proceedings shall be conducted in English and shall be conducted in a manner that preserves confidentiality. The arbitrator’s decision shall follow the plain meaning of the relevant documents and shall be final and binding. The award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
