1. Purpose of the Felux Platform
The Felux Platform is a marketplace where sellers and buyers of metal can identify each other, communicate, and buy and sell metals. Felux is not a clearing-house or a party to any contract or agreement for the sale and purchase of the metals negotiated via the Felux Platform. Felux and the Felux Platform are not, and shall not be considered or categorized as, a metals or steel broker, agent, or trader for either party.
We encourage you to seek independent legal advice about which type of contract or agreement best suits your purposes. We do not warrant that any contracts or agreements facilitated by your use of the Felux Platform are complete, reliable, accurate, or appropriate for your individual circumstances. You agree that you enter into any commitment to purchase or sell metals via the Felux Platform with a buyer or seller, as applicable (each, a “Commitment”) relying entirely upon your own independent assessment of all relevant matters and do not rely upon any warranty, statement, or representation made or given by us or on our behalf. We encourage you to seek independent legal advice particular to your circumstances before making a Commitment via the Felux Platform. You agree to comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations in connection with your sale or purchase of metal on the Felux Platform.
2. Fees Payable to Felux
For each Commitment made between a seller and buyer, the seller shall pay Felux a percentage of the total Commitment (the “Commitment Fee”), as described in the Fee Schedule set out below. Felux also may invoice a buyer or seller for a portion, or the entirety, of the Commitment Fee for other activities or violations of the Felux Platform as described in the Fee Schedule, such as Stale Postings. “Stale Postings” include, but are not limited to, the following: (i) metals posted for sale for more than 60 days, (ii) a request for quotation (RFQ) that is posted with uncommitted weight after the “Bids Due By” date or (iii) a RFQ that is closed with weight unawarded. Felux reserves the right to change the Fee Schedule at any time. Users are bound by the Fee Schedule current at the date of that transaction. All fees must be paid in U.S. Dollars. Felux will invoice users on a weekly basis and payment is due net 30 days. Failure to pay fees when due may result in the termination or suspension of your access to all or part of the Felux Platform without prior notice.

21. Governing Law
Before serving a demand for arbitration of a Claim, you and the Company agree to first notify each other of the Claim. You agree to notify the Company of the Claim at Attn: Legal, 6001 Euclid Ave. Suite #150 Cleveland, OH 44103 or by email to email@example.com, and the Company agrees to provide to you a notice at your email address on file (in each case, a “Notice”). You and the Company shall first seek informal voluntary resolution of the Claim. Any Notice must include pertinent account information, a brief description of the Claim, and contact information, so that you or the Company, as applicable, may evaluate the Claim and attempt to informally resolve the Claim. Both you and the Company will have 60 days from the date of the receipt of the Notice to informally resolve the other party’s Claim, which, if successful, will avoid the need for further action.
In the unlikely event the parties are unable to resolve a Claim within 60 days of the receipt of the applicable Notice, you, the Company, and the Company Representatives agree that any Claim shall be resolved in Cleveland, Ohio by final and binding arbitration before an arbitrator from JAMS, instead of a court or jury. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com.
This Arbitration Provision applies to any Claim (defined above) the parties may have and survives after your relationship with the Company ends. This Arbitration Provision is intended to apply to the resolution of Claims that otherwise would be resolved in a court of law or before a forum other than arbitration. If for any reason JAMS will not administer the arbitration, either party may apply to a court of competent jurisdiction with authority over the location where the arbitration will be conducted for appointment of a neutral arbitrator.
Except as otherwise provided herein, arbitration will be conducted in Cleveland, Ohio in accordance with the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures’ Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect. Arbitration of disputes brought by a user that allege a violation of a consumer protection statute also will be subject to the JAMS Consumer Arbitration Minimum Standards, and such arbitrations will be conducted in the same state and within 25 miles of where the user is located. The applicable JAMS arbitration rules may be found at www.jamsadr.com or by searching online for “JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures”. Any dispute regarding the applicability of a particular set of JAMS rules shall be resolved exclusively by the arbitrator. Any party will have the right to appear at the arbitration by telephone and/or video rather than in person.
This Arbitration Provision is the full and complete agreement relating to the formal resolution of Claims. Except as otherwise provided in this Arbitration Provision, this Arbitration Provision covers, and the arbitrator shall have exclusive jurisdiction to decide, all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, enforcement, or application of this Arbitration Provision, including the enforceability, revocability, scope, or validity of the Arbitration Provision or any portion of the Arbitration Provision. All such matters shall be decided by an arbitrator and not by a court. In the event any portion of this Arbitration Provision is deemed unenforceable, the remainder of this Arbitration Provision will be enforceable. If any portion of the Class Action Waiver in subsection C, below, of this Arbitration Provision is deemed to be unenforceable, you and the Company agree that this Arbitration Provision will be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law.
This Arbitration Provision affects your ability to participate in class or collective actions. Both you and the Company agree that any Claim shall be subject solely to arbitration on an individual basis only, and not on a class or collective basis on behalf of others. There shall be no right or authority for any Claim to be brought, heard or arbitrated as a class or collective action, or as a member in any such class or collective proceeding (“Class Action Waiver”). Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement or the JAMS rules, disputes regarding the enforceability, revocability, scope, or validity or breach of the Class Action Waiver may be resolved only by a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. In any case in which (1) the Claim is filed as a class or collective action and (2) there is a final judicial determination that all or part of the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, the class or collective action to that extent must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction, but the portion of the Class Action Waiver that is enforceable shall be enforced in arbitration. However, the Company may lawfully seek enforcement of this Arbitration Provision and the Class Action Waiver under the Federal Arbitration Act and seek dismissal of such class or collective actions or claims.
