You may participate in one of our text messaging programs (a “Program”), including but not limited to Paradigm Insiders, Paradigm Profits, Paradigm Trade Alerts or Paradigm Action Alerts by providing your telephone number through any of our websites or applications which link to, or otherwise refer to, this Agreement, such as paradigmpressgroup.com, (collectively our “Apps”), or by contacting us at a short code, toll-free number, local number, or using a key phrase from our marketing/advertisements (an “Opt-in Text”). By doing so you agree to receive alerts, communications, marketing and sales messages including those sent via text messages, SMS, MMS, and picture messages from us at the phone number you provide, or from which your message originates, including on landlines and wireless numbers, even if the phone number is on a corporate, state or national Do Not Call list.  You also agree to the mandatory arbitration provision and class action waiver below. Your consent is not required to purchase goods or services. Messages vary per user and Program. Message & data rates may apply.

You may opt-out of any SMS or MMS texts from a Program at any time by texting the word STOP to the telephone number from which you receive the text messages. Send a text message with the word HELP to learn more. Your consent is valid for a single Program; however, you may choose to be subscribed to more than one Program at a time and may need to opt out of each Program individually.

You agree to notify us of any changes to your telephone number and update your account with us to reflect this change; and that we may also collect and automatically process such updates from your carrier or other sources authorized by you to provide such updates.

Your carrier may charge you for text messages you receive, or may prohibit or restrict certain mobile features, and certain mobile features may be incompatible with your carrier or mobile device. Contact your carrier with questions regarding these issues. Carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

Any dispute relating in any way to your participation in the Program (collectively “Disputes”) shall be submitted to and resolved by binding, individual confidential arbitration and governed exclusively by the laws of the State of Maryland, excluding its conflict of law provisions. For the avoidance of doubt, all claims and causes of action arising under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and state telemarketing laws shall be considered “Disputes” that are subject to resolution by binding individual, confidential arbitration.

If a Dispute arises under this Agreement, you agree to first contact us at sms@14west.us to informally resolve the Dispute. If a Dispute cannot be resolved informally, you agree that any and all Disputes, including the validity of this arbitration clause and class action waiver, shall be submitted to final and binding arbitration before a single arbitrator of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in a location convenient to you or telephonically or video-conference. Either you or we may commence the arbitration process by submitting a written demand for arbitration with the AAA, and providing a copy to the other party. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the provisions of the AAA’s Commercial Dispute Resolutions Procedures, Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, in effect at the time of submission of the demand for arbitration. Except as may be required by law as determined by the arbitrator, no party or arbitrator may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration hereunder without the prior written consent of both parties. Without limiting the foregoing, YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE TO SUBMIT TO ARBITRATION ALL DISPUTES RELATING TO ANY TEXT MESSAGES YOU RECEIVE FROM OR ON BEHALF OF US OR ANY ENTITY WITH WHOM WE MAY SHARE YOUR TELEPHONE NUMBER. Further, we both agree that all entities with whom we share your telephone numbers shall be third party beneficiaries of this Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes, and that those entities have the same rights as us to enforce this arbitration provision.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the following shall not be subject to arbitration and may be adjudicated only in the state and federal courts of Maryland: (i) any dispute, controversy, or claim relating to or contesting the validity of our or one of our family company’s intellectual property rights and proprietary rights, including without limitation, patents, trademarks, service marks, copyrights, or trade secrets; (ii) an action by us for temporary or preliminary injunctive relief, whether prohibitive or mandatory, or other provisional relief; (iii) any legal action by us against a non-consumer; or (iv) interactions with governmental and regulatory authorities. You expressly agree to refrain from bringing or joining any claims in any representative or class-wide capacity, including but not limited to bringing or joining any claims in any class action or any class-wide arbitration.

The arbitrator’s award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under this Agreement may be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to this Agreement, whether through a class action, private attorney general proceeding, class arbitration proceedings or otherwise.

YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WOULD HAVE HAD A RIGHT TO LITIGATE IN A COURT, TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE YOUR CASE AND TO BE PARTY TO A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. HOWEVER, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO HAVE ANY CLAIMS DECIDED INDIVIDUALLY AND ONLY THROUGH ARBITRATION. You shall have thirty (30) days from the earliest of the date that you use the Apps, the date you submit information to us through the Apps, or the date that you send an Opt-in Text or other text message to us, to opt out of this arbitration agreement, by contacting us by email at sms@14west.us or by mail at:

Attn: Legal Department

14 W Mt. Vernon Place
Baltimore MD, 21201

If you do not opt out by the earliest of these dates, then you are not eligible to opt out of this arbitration agreement.
