    4. 5.4 Release.
      EvenTiket provides a marketplace in which Attendees and Organizers can transact. However, EvenTiket could not function if it were held responsible for the actions or inactions of different Attendees, Organizers and/or third parties both on and off the Services. Therefore, as an inducement to EvenTiket permitting you to access and use the Services, you hereby agree to release EvenTiket, and its affiliates and subsidiaries, and each of its and their respective officers, directors, agents, partners and employees from all damages (whether direct, indirect, incidental, consequential or otherwise), losses, liabilities, costs and expenses of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with disputes between you and third parties (including other Users) in connection with the Services or any event listed on the Services. In addition, you waive any applicable law or statute, which says, in substance:
      "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE RELEASED PARTY."
    5. 5.5 Trademarks.
      The trademarks, service marks and logos of EvenTiket (the "EvenTiket Trademarks") used and displayed in connection with the Services are registered and unregistered trademarks or service marks of EvenTiket. Other company, product and service names used in connection with the Services may be trademarks or service marks owned by third parties (the "Third Party Trademarks," and, collectively with EvenTiket Trademarks, the "Trademarks"). The offering of the Services shall not be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any license or right to use any Trademark displayed in connection with the Services without the prior written consent of EvenTiket specific for each such use. The Trademarks may not be used to disparage EvenTiket, any third party or EvenTiket’s or such third party’s products or services, or in any manner that may damage any goodwill in the Trademarks. Use of any Trademarks as part of a link to or from any site is prohibited unless EvenTiket approves the establishment of such a link by prior written consent specific for each such link. All goodwill generated from the use of any EvenTiket Trademark shall inure to EvenTiket’s benefit.

      These Terms of Service, including the Terms of Use, Merchant Agreement and any other part of these Terms of Service, constitute the entire agreement between you and EvenTiket and govern your use of the Services, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, proposals, discussions or communications between you and EvenTiket on the subject matter hereof, other than any written Ticketing Services Agreement, EvenTiket Equipment Lease Agreement or Addendum Agreement between you and an authorized officer of EvenTiket relating to a specified event or events.
    7. 5.7 Choice of Law.
      Except as set forth in Section 5.8 below, these Terms of Service and the provision of the Services to you are governed by the laws of MALAYSIA, without reference to principles of conflict of laws.
    8. 5.8 BINDING ARBITRATION.
      ONLY FOR USERS LOCATED IN MALAYSIA:
      PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS. ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM UNDER THESE TERMS OF SERVICE OR WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICES WILL BE SETTLED BY BINDING ARBITRATION OR IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT (TO THE EXTENT THE CLAIM QUALIFIES) AND WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS ONLY; CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ARBITRATIONS AND CIVIL ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED ONCE THIS SECTION IS EFFECTIVE.
      (a) Contact Us First.
      If you have a question or concern about the Services, please contact us first. Our customer support team will try to answer your question or resolve your concern.
      (b) Agreement to Arbitrate.
      In the unlikely event that our customer support team is unable to resolve your concerns, we each hereby agree to resolve any and all disputes or claims under these Terms of Service or with respect to the Services through binding arbitration or in small claims court (to the extent the claim qualifies) instead of in courts of general jurisdiction and only on an individual basis and not as part of any purported class, consolidated or representative proceeding. Arbitration, which is often cheaper, faster and less formal than a lawsuit in court, uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief as a court. Binding arbitration is subject to very limited review. Only the arbitrator appointed pursuant to this Section, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have the authority to resolve any dispute or claim relating to this Section, including, without limitation, the scope, enforceability and arbitrability of these Terms of Service. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms of Service. These Terms of Service evidence a transaction in interstate commerce and the interpretation and enforcement of this Section 6.10 is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, notwithstanding the choice of law set forth in Section 5.7 above.
      (c) Scope of Agreement.
      This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to: (i) all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; (ii) all claims that arose before this or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising); and (iii) all claims that may arise after termination of these Terms of Service and/or your use of the Services.
      (d) Exceptions.
      Not withstanding this Agreement to arbitrate, either party may (i) bring an action on an individual basis in small claims court (to the extent the applicable claim qualifies), (ii) bring issues to the attention of federal, state or local agencies, including, for example, KPDNKK OR CONSUMER TRIBUNAL, and (iii) bring suit in court to seek a preliminary injunction or other interim relief pending the outcome of arbitration.
      (f) Notice of Dispute.
      A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other a written Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to EvenTiket must be addressed to the address in the website and must be sent by certified mail. The Notice to you must be addressed to a mailing, home or payment address currently on record with EvenTiket and must be sent by certified mail. If EvenTiket has no records of such physical address, such notice may be delivered to your EvenTiket account email address. The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If EvenTiket and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or EvenTiket may commence an arbitration proceeding.
    9. 5.9 Waiver; Invalid Provisions.
      The failure or delay of EvenTiket to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. No oral waiver, amendment or modification shall be effective under any circumstance whatsoever. If any provision of these Terms of Service is found by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the arbitrator or court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Service shall remain in full force and effect.
    10. 5.10 Judicial Forum.
      In the event that the Agreement to Arbitrate above is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute, either as a result of your decision to opt-out of the Agreement to Arbitrate or for any other reason, then any dispute or claim not subject to arbitration shall be resolved exclusively by a federal court located in Singapore, and to the extent there is no subject matter jurisdiction in such federal court, then a court in Singapore. Both you and EvenTiket agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts and agree that such forum is convenient.
    11. 5.11 Titles.
      Any Section titles in these Terms of Service are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
    12. 5.12 Violations.
      Please report any violations of these Terms of Service by email.
    13. 5.13 Assignment.
      We may, without your consent or approval, freely assign these Terms of Service and our rights and obligations under these Terms of Service, whether to an affiliate or to another entity in connection with a corporate transaction or otherwise.
    14. 5.14 Relationship.
      No independent contractor, agency, partnership, joint venture, employer-employee or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by these Terms of Service, except to the extent expressly set forth in Section 4 of the Terms of Use and the Merchant Agreement.
