Suspensions and Termination of Access and Subscription
Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
All disputes, controversies, causes of action (in tort, contract, by statute or otherwise) (“Disputes”), including, without limitation, Disputes arising from or relating to this Arbitration Provision (including the interpretation, breach, termination and invalidity thereof) or the relationship that results from this Agreement shall be resolved by binding arbitration by a single independent and impartial arbitrator under the applicable dispute resolution procedures of Hong Kong.
Arbitration replaces the right to go to court, and therefore the parties waive any right that you or OptionAutomator might otherwise have had to a jury trial or the opportunity to litigate any claims in court before either a judge or jury. Notwithstanding the foregoing, OptionAutomator Limited reserves the right to pursue the protection of intellectual property rights and confidential information and to stop other illegal activities through injunctive relief or other equitable relief through the courts.
Venue:The exclusive venue for the arbitration shall be in Hong Kong. The parties will agree on a reasonable location, in the event that Hong Kong is an inconvenient forum. The parties will endeavor to minimize the need for long distance travel through use of telephonic communications and submission of documents as permitted under the applicable rules for Expedited Procedures. The official language of the arbitration shall be English.
Both parties retain the right to file any claim that is not aggregated with the claim of any other persons and whose amount in controversy is properly within the jurisdiction of a court, which is limited to adjudicated small claims.
Class and Consolidated Claims Waiver
It is agreed that neither party shall have the right to participate as a class representative or class member with respect to any Disputes subject to arbitration under this Agreement or any Dispute between the parties. The parties also waive any right to assert consolidated claims with respect to any Disputes subject to arbitration under this Agreement or any Dispute between the parties.
Limit of Liability
Liability for both parties is limited $1,000 in damages, except as otherwise limited by this Agreement. Parties waive and the Arbitrator shall not be empowered to grant indirect, consequential, special, punitive or exemplary damages and/or damages or relief in excess of those permitted by this Agreement unless the statute under which they are suing provides otherwise. An arbitration award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction for the purposes of enforcement.
Notice of Claims, Timing of Disputes and Nature of Award
All Disputes shall be filed within one (1) year of the date the Disputes arose or occurred. The parties expressly waive any contrary statute of limitations or time bars, both legal and equitable, to the Disputes. Arbitration shall be commenced by filing a Claim pursuant to the applicable Hong Kong arbitration.
Discovery and Hearing Procedures
All parties have the right, at their own expense, to be represented by an attorney or spokesperson of their own choosing. Discovery shall be expeditiously completed within three (3) months of the time the parties are at issue. Each party shall produce relevant non-privileged documents requested by the other party. Discovery procedures available in court actions do not apply. The arbitrator shall grant oral and/or written discovery to preserve evidence or upon a showing of need. All discovery disputes shall be promptly submitted to and promptly resolved by the arbitrator.
Emergency and Provisional Remedies
Any party may seek a preliminary injunction or other provisional, injunctive, emergency or equitable relief (but not monetary relief) in a court of competent jurisdiction if, in its sole judgment, such relief is necessary to preserve the status quo or to prevent irreparable harm. The parties shall, despite seeking relief under this section, participate in good faith in the arbitration.
The arbitrator will take reasonable steps to protect customer account information and other confidential or proprietary information. The arbitration will not be confidential unless you request that it remain confidential.
Payment of Arbitration Fees and Costs
Irrespective of who prevails in arbitration, you will only be responsible for paying your share, if any, of the arbitration fees required by the applicable Code, which amount shall not exceed the filing fees you would have incurred if the Claim had been brought in the appropriate state or federal court closest to your residence. OptionAutomator Limited will pay the remainder of any arbitration fees. At your written request, we will consider in good faith making a temporary advance of all or part of your share of the arbitration fees. The handling of fee arrangements and the payment of fees should be conducted by and Independent Institution. If the arbitration is decided in your favor, you will not be required to reimburse OptionAutomator Limited for any of the fees and costs it advanced. If the arbitration is decided in OptionAutomator Limited’s favor, you shall reimburse OptionAutomator Limited’s arbitration fees and costs, but only to the extent awardable in a judicial proceeding.

This type of information may include things like the Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) of the page you visited before and/or after coming to our Site, the links you clicked on, the type of browser you are using and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. We, and/or our authorized third-party providers (“Third-Party Service Providers”), may automatically collect this information when you visit our Site, the Software, or the Platform and as you navigate through our Site, the Software, or the Platform through the use of electronic tools (see Information Collected Via Technology below).

Information Collected Via Technology
OptionAutomator receives data from you as part of the standard communication connection. As you use OptionAutomator.com, certain information may also be passively collected and stored on our or our service providers’ server logs. This information often consists of network routing (where you came from), equipment information (browser type and operating system), date and time. OptionAutomator will check requests you make to OptionAutomator services to see if there are any “cookies” accompanying those requests. Cookies are small pieces of information that a web site sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing that Website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience with OptionAutomator.
You can set your browser to alert you when a cookie is being used, the duration of the cookie, and to inform you of where your information is being returned. You then have the opportunity to accept or reject the cookie. Additionally, you may set your browser to refuse all cookies or accept only cookies returned to the originating servers. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser help file directions. Users may generally disable the cookie feature on their browser without affecting their ability to use OptionAutomator.com, except in some cases where cookies are used as an essential feature to allow the successful completion of a transaction. However, disabling cookies may limit your use of many convenience features offered by OptionAutomator.com.
We may use other industry standard technologies like pixel tags and web beacons to track your use of our Site pages and promotions, or we may allow our Third-Party Service Providers and/or Marketing Partners (entities associated with OptionAutomator that receive compensation for referrals on a per customer basis) to use these devices on our behalf. Pixel tags and web beacons are tiny graphic images placed on certain pages on our Website, or in our emails that allow us to measure and improve our understanding of visitor traffic and behavior on our Site, as well as give us a way to measure our promotions and performance. Pixel tags and web beacons are not used to access users’ Personally Identifiable Information; they are a technique we may use to compile aggregated statistics about Site usage. You may not decline pixel tags and web beacons, however, they can be rendered ineffective by declining all cookies or modifying your browser setting to notify you each time a cookie is tendered and permit you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis.

You can unsubscribe from these emails at any time by emailing [email protected] with a request to unsubscribe or by the link at the bottom of all email transmissions by our email subscription lists.

Data Protection and Privacy
Anytime you call OptionAutomator customer service, we may request that you provide identification information such as your home address, phone number, and zip code. We will use this data to facilitate and process refunds, to detect fraud and to comply with applicable laws and regulations.
Authorized Third-Party Service Providers
We provide services and products through third parties. These “Third-Party Service Providers” perform functions on our behalf, like sending out and distributing our administrative and promotional emails, administering contests, removing repetitive information on customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, search results and links, operating the Website, troubleshooting, and providing customer service. We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with Service Providers to accomplish our administrative tasks. We require our Third-Party Service Providers to agree not to use your Personally Identifiable Information, except to the extent necessary to perform the services we have engaged them to perform. We may also collect personal information about you from individuals and companies (“Affiliates”) with whom we have business relationships.
Third-Party Payment Processors
OptionAutomator does not collect or store payment data. We utilize third-party payment processors. As users shop on our site, they click a button to pay using their bank account, credit card, debit card or PayPal account. In all cases, they are taken to a secure, third-party-hosted page. Payment information is protected during transmission from the user directly to the third-party payment processor by a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection. Once stored, this information is protected through various security measures in place at the credit card processor’s data center. Third-party payment processors must annually attest to maintaining Payment Card Industry (“PCI”) Data Security Standard (“DSS”) compliance. This includes building and sustaining a secure network to protect payment card and cardholder information, encrypting data in transit, implementing strong access control measures and regularly monitoring and testing networks and technological elements such as firewalls to meet security requirements.
Security and Sharing of Information
We take security seriously and take numerous precautions to protect the security of Personally Identifiable Information. At any time, a user can edit his or her own personal information and view his or her own Website activity on the user’s OptionAutomator profile/account page. You can access your Personally Identifiable Information on our Website through a password and your email address. This password is encrypted. We recommend that you do not share your password with anyone. In addition, your Personally Identifiable Information resides on a secure server that only selected personnel and contractors have access to. We encrypt certain sensitive information using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology while communicating with your computer to ensure that your Personally Identifiable Information is safe as it is transmitted to us. We also encrypt personally identifiable information stored in backups of our database so that the data is not easily accessible while being stored offline.
We may also use Third-Party Service Providers to track and analyze Non-Personally Identifiable usage and volume statistical information from our Users to administer our Website and constantly improve its quality. We may also publish this information for promotional purposes. We may disclose this information to any of our business partners, advertisers and other third parties as we may choose. Please note that this is not Personally Identifiable Information, only general summaries of the activities of our Users. Such data is collected on our behalf, and is owned and used by us.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Likewise, OptionAutomator may be required to store some sensitive data in relation to our transactions with you as a result of our internal records requirements, as dictated by applicable regulations and laws. Such data will also be encrypted in storage, but no encryption system is 100% secure. As a result, while we employ commercially reasonable security measures to protect data and seek to partner with companies which do the same, we cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted to or from the Website, and are not responsible for the actions of any third parties that may receive any such information.
OptionAutomator does permit third-party advertising on our Site. We may remarket your information. Remarketing is a way for us to connect with users using a variety of advertising networks, based upon your past interactions with the Site. We may hire third-party marketing vendors to perform remarketing services. As a result, third-party vendors may show OptionAutomator ads on sites you visit on the Internet.
