9.6 Consequences of termination

In the event of termination, Users found in violation of the User Agreement will not receive any credit or payment from WhereismyGC.

Without limiting WhereismyGC's other remedies, to the extent you are in violation of this User Agreement, you must pay WhereismyGC for all fees owed to us and reimburse us for all losses and costs (including any and all WhereismyGC employee time) and reasonable expenses (including legal fees) related to investigating such breach and collecting such fees.

You and WhereismyGC agree that the damages that WhereismyGC will sustain as a result of actions that breach the User Agreement will be substantial, potentially including (without limitation) fines and other related expenses from its payment processors and Professionals, but may be extremely difficult and impracticable to ascertain. If you engage in such activities, then WhereismyGC may fine you up to US$10,000.00 for each such violation and/or WhereismyGC may take legal action against you to recover losses that are in excess of the amount charged. You acknowledge and agree that a fine up to US$10,000.00 is presently a reasonable pre-estimate or minimum estimate of WhereismyGC's damages, considering all currently existing circumstances, including (without limitation) the relationship of the sum to the range of harm to WhereismyGC that reasonably could be anticipated and the anticipation that proof of actual damages may be impractical or extremely difficult.

You agree that WhereismyGC is entitled to deduct such charges directly from any existing balance in the offending Account, or any other WhereismyGC Account owned by you.

Users that are terminated by WhereismyGC on any basis other than violation of this User Agreement will be entitled to receive any payment due from WhereismyGC.

STAGE 1 - Identifying the issue

The complainant should communicate to WhereismyGC the Service under dispute, the nature of dispute, the name of defendant, the damages claimed, and the original Service Fees amount.

From this stage until Stage 3, users are encouraged to attach any files that could support their claims.

Only the party who originally filed for the dispute can cancel the dispute. If the issue cannot be resolved through negotiation, either party can choose to have the dispute arbitrated by the Dispute Team. The Dispute Team will stop functioning if the dispute is either settled through mutual agreement or cancelled before reaching arbitration.

STAGE 3 - Final Offers and Evidence

Stage 3 is the last stage where both users can submit their final evidence to support their case. After Stage 3, the involved parties are no longer allowed to submit evidence. The dispute will be resolved based solely on the evidence provided through the Dispute System.
