This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia, and except as provided in Section 18, we each irrevocably consent to bring any action to enforce this Agreement in the federal or state courts located in Atlanta, Georgia. You consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal or state courts located in Atlanta, Georgia for such purposes.
(a) Arbitration. All claims arising out of or relating to these Terms (including their formation, performance and breach) and the ROMA Surveys Service shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the provisions of its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the supplementary procedures for consumer related disputes of the AAA, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of these Terms are void or voidable. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, we will pay the additional cost. The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court. (b) Class Action Waiver. The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this section is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes. (c) Exception - Litigation of Small Claims Court Claims. Notwithstanding our decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction. (d) Thirty Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth in this section by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to the following address: 195 Inland Ridge Way Atlanta, GA 30342. The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of registering to use the Service; otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms set forth above. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, we also will not be bound by them. In addition, if you elect to opt-out of these arbitration provisions, we may terminate your use of the Service

24. Quality Accountability
Our platform has numerous functions that improve the UX and functionality with users, promoters and researchers. We always ensure every aspect of our business is transparent, simple and valuable however we cannot assume responsibility for potential dishonesty from some users. As the platforms primary incentive for users is its survey payout amount, we cannot always ensure every user answers every survey question 100% honestly. Even though we profile users to ensure access to surveys is limited to their particular interests and survey category choices, a user can technically access surveys that aren't always 100% relevant to them. This is a limited weakness of open-community platforms where users can choose which surveys they complete. By creating a researcher account and survey campaign with ROMA Digital Ltd, you acknowledge that we cannot reimburse you if your survey campaign has already been completed by users. We can only refund you the amount to which hasn't been paid to users from your survey campaign. If you are unhappy with the quality of your survey responses, please pause (or end) your campaign and contact us at email@example.com.
No delay or failure to take action under these Terms shall constitute any waiver by us of any provision of these Terms.
If any provision of these Terms is found invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.
These Terms are personal to you and may not be transferred, assigned or delegated by you to any other person or entity. Any attempt by you to assign, transfer or delegate these Terms shall be null and void. These Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of each party's permitted successors and assigns.
28. Entire Agreement
These Terms (including all terms and conditions incorporated herein by reference) constitute the complete and exclusive agreement between us and you with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior oral or written understandings, communications or agreements not specifically incorporated herein.
