Terms of Service
(Last Updated: March 11, 2021)
Please read these Terms carefully. Your use of the Site constitutes your agreement, without modification, to all of the terms, conditions, and notices in the Agreement. If you do not accept the Agreement, you may not use the Site. As used in these Terms, “we,” “our,” or “us” refers to Allinial Global. “You,” “yours,” or other similar designation refers to the person accessing or using the Site.
Special terms may apply to certain interactive features or services available via the Site (the “Services”). These Services may be available only to our Members. These terms may be posted on the Site in connection with the applicable Services, and you must agree to such terms before you access or use such Services. In the event of a conflict between these terms and the separate terms applicable to the Services, the separate Services terms will prevail.
We reserve the right to change these Terms at any time by posting revised Terms on the Site (or by sending an email to the last email address you gave us), so we encourage you to review this web page periodically. The changes will be effective immediately when posted. Your use or continued use of the Site following the posting of any changes to these Terms shall constitute your acceptance of the changed Terms.

Before you can access or use the Site or the Services, you must be able to enter into a legally binding contract with us. This means that
(1) if you are a person, you must be at least eighteen (18) years old and have the legal capacity to enter into a contract, and
(2) if you are using the Site or the Services on behalf of a Member, you must have the legal authority to bind such Member to these Terms.
To gain access to the Member Portal, our registration requirements for the same must be met, including, without limitation, you are a member of Allinial Global. Certain additional requirements may be posted in association with the registration to use particular Services. By using the Site or the Services, you represent and warrant that you satisfy these qualifications (all of such qualifications, the “Eligibility Requirements”). We may refuse service, close accounts of any users, and change the Eligibility Requirements at any time and without any liability.
Member Portal Accounts
We will establish an account for each Member and the users they designate based on information provided by the Member. You agree to provide and maintain your account with accurate and complete information about your Member and your authorized users as prompted by the Member Portal. By providing us with such information, you authorize us and our third-party agents to make any inquiries we consider necessary to confirm such information. You will not impersonate any third party or misrepresent your identity or affiliation with any third party, including using another person’s account information, or another person’s name, likeness, voice, image, or photograph.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you hereby agree to and indicate responsibility for the accuracy, completeness and timeliness of all data and information you transmit via the Member Portal and any Services available thereon. Allinial Global may add a level of data validation periodically, but this in no way alleviates your role in maintaining the integrity of your data. Allinial Global will not be responsible for the evaluation or verification of your information. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Allinial Global and its affiliates, and any of their officers, directors, shareholders, employees, consultants, agents, licensors, and suppliers, from and against any and all claims, liability, damages, costs, and/or expenses, including but not limited to reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising from incomplete or inaccurate data in your Member account. It is your responsibility to give your best efforts in providing current data in a timely manner.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your personal information and for restricting access to your account. A Member may authorize additional users on its account, subject to any maximum usage limits we may establish in our sole discretion from time to time. You are responsible for all activities that occur under your account, and we will not be liable for any actions by any other individual that uses your account (including, without limitation, any other authorized users), identity or personal information with or without your consent or knowledge. You also agree to notify us promptly of any unauthorized use of your account, account information, identity, or personal information, or other breach of security that you become aware of involving or relating to the Site or the Services. In addition, you agree to exit from your account or the Services at the end of each session.
We do not get involved in disputes over who owns an account. You will not request access to or information about an account that is not yours, and you must resolve any account-related disputes directly with the other party. We decide who owns an account based solely on the information available to us with respect to the account, including, without limitation, the contact information on the account and other information available in the account.

This agreement is governed by the laws of the state of Georgia applicable to contracts made and performed there without regard to its conflicts of law principles. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to this Agreement.
If you violate, or threaten to violate these Terms, then we will have the right, and in addition to all other remedies available we might have in equity or under these Terms, to affirmative or negative injunctive relief from a court of competent jurisdiction. You acknowledge that a violation of these Terms would cause irreparable harm and that all other remedies are inadequate.

If the matter has not been settled after such negotiations have continued for sixty (60) days, then each of the parties agrees that the exclusive venue for all actions, relating in any manner to this Agreement shall be in a federal or state court of competent jurisdiction located in or having jurisdiction over Gwinnett County, Georgia, and each party hereby consents and submits to the in personam jurisdiction of such courts and waives any objection based on forum non conveniens and any objection to venue of any action instituted hereunder to the extent that an action is brought in the courts identified above.

If the matter has not been settled after such negotiations have continued for sixty (60) days, then any such controversy, dispute, or claim shall be submitted to final and binding arbitration, which shall be held exclusively in Atlanta, Georgia, in accordance with the rules promulgated by the LCIA Rules, as amended and in effect from time to time (the “Rules”), and shall be administered by the London Court of International Arbitration (“LCIA”) using its expedited procedures (if available). The law applicable during the arbitration of any controversy, dispute or claim shall be both the Rules and the applicable laws of the State of Georgia. The language to be used in the arbitration proceedings shall be English. The arbitrator shall have the power to order injunctive relief or provide further equitable remedies and to award costs, including, without limitation, reasonable attorney’s fees and disbursements to the prevailing party. Nothing in this paragraph shall prevent a party from seeking injunctive relief before any court having jurisdiction over the breaching party, pending resolution of arbitration in the event that a party would be irreparably harmed pending the outcome of the arbitration. Upon the resolution of any arbitration, the parties agree that any court order obtained shall be modified or dismissed to comply with the ruling of the arbitrator. Judgment on any award granted in arbitration may be entered and enforced by any court having jurisdiction thereof. Unless the parties agree otherwise, the parties, the arbitrators and LCIA shall treat the dispute resolution proceedings provided for herein, any related disclosures and the decisions of the arbitrators as confidential, except in connection with judicial proceedings ancillary to the dispute resolution proceedings, such as a judicial challenge to, or enforcement of, the arbitral award, and unless otherwise required by law to protect a legal right of a party.
