- Abusive Language and Disruptive Behavior: We do not tolerate abusive language or disruptive behavior on our forums. This goes for abusive and disruptive comments and behavior that are directed at Oath Keepers employees or community members, alike. Please remember to be respectful and constructive at all times on our forums, and help us maintain a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for all.
- Accusations of Misconduct: We do not allow public accusations that others have broken the community rules, or are otherwise acting inappropriately. Constructive disagreement is fine, but accusing someone of trolling tends to escalate the problem, and accusations of lying are usually inflammatory. If you feel someone is breaking the rules, please report their post and do not respond to them.
- Advertising: We do not allow advertising in our forums. This includes, but is not limited to advertisements and promotions for the following:
- Outside businesses and services
- Any venture that results in monetary profit
- Bashing and Slanderous Comments: We do not permit the bashing of individuals (including Oath Keepers employees), groups, or other companies on our forums. We believe that doing so is neither constructive nor in spirit of our community.
- Conspiracy Theories and Misinformation: We do not tolerate the deliberate and malicious spreading of false info or conspiracy theories about Oath Keepers or its employees. This does not include honest mistakes; rather, this rule pertains to those who go out of their way to spread harmful or malicious rumors about Oath Keepers and its employees.
- Copyright Infringement: Names and Material: We do not allow copyright-protected names on our forums. Copyright-protected names are typically from well-known original characters in books, games, and movies. We also do not permit discussion about the illegal distribution or use of copyrighted material, such as private game servers or pirated movies, music, and games.
- Demands and Threats: We encourage you to share feedback, suggestion, and requests with us, but we expect all of our community members to refrain from resorting to demands or threats. We believe that demands and threats are not constructive. Threats of real-life violence, in particular, are something we take very seriously and do not tolerate.
- Deliberately Contravening an Oath Keepers Employee: Deliberately contravening a request or action by a member of the Oath Keepers staff is not permitted at any time. As an example, if we close a thread you created and leave an explanation stating why it was closed, you may not re-create the thread.
- Discussing Disciplinary Actions: If you ever have questions or concerns about a disciplinary action or decision we have made in our forums, or wish to appeal a forum warning or infraction you’ve received, we ask that you please contact oathkeepers.org/contact-us to do so (please specify that you are contacting about a forum-related inquiry or appeal). We are happy to discuss and review specific moderation-related actions with you, but we do not allow discussion of any moderation actions or decisions on our forums.
- Flaming: It’s okay to disagree and debate within our forums, but we do ask that you keep all disagreements civil, constructive, and on-topic. If a discussion gets heated and turns into a debate, remember that you should stick to debating the post and/or thread topic. It is never appropriate to resort to personal comments or jabs about those participating in the thread discussion.
- Goodbye/Quitting Threads: We understand that sometimes people will leave these forums, and want to post a “goodbye” or “quitting” thread. Generally, we have found that “goodbye” and “quitting” threads have a tendency to go downhill fast. It is our policy to read the feedback in “goodbye” and “quitting” threads and close them, regardless of whether they are constructive or not.
- Hate Speech: We take the use of hate speech very seriously in the Oath Keepers forums, and have a zero tolerance policy. Our definition of hate speech is prejudice or hateful comments, slurs, or statements that promote violence or intolerance toward others because of the following:
- National Origin
- Sexual Orientation
- Any other personally identifying factors
- Hijacking and Off Topic Posting: We do not allow threads to be hijacked for other purposes. It is natural for a discussion to evolve, and tangential comments are usually fine. Hijacking typically involves taking a thread in a direction counter to its intent, or posting irrelevant content.
- Impersonation: We do not tolerate impersonation of any kind in the official Oath Keepers community, and take impersonation attempts very seriously when they do occur. Impersonation includes using a display name, photos, posts, or any other material with the intent to fool people into believing you are an Oath Keepers employee, another community member, a celebrity, or anyone else you are not.
- Inappropriate Content and Language: Certain topics and subjects are deemed inappropriate and not permitted in the forums. Things that we consider inappropriate are usually illegal, extremely volatile or violent, obscene, vulgar, or simply inappropriate for a forum such as ours. Inappropriate content on the official forums includes, but is not limited to the following:
- Extreme violence
- Illegal substances and activities
- Pirated copyright-protected material
- Pornography and other sexually explicit topics
- Real-world religion and politics
- Tasteless, vulgar, or obscene material
- Malicious Links: We do not tolerate the posting of malicious links on our forums, for any reason. This includes links to pornographic material, key-loggers, and browser hijackers, and phishing scams. We greatly appreciate when our community members wish to report a harmful or misleading Oath Keepers-related site to us, but please do not do so on the official the forums. If you discover a site you want to report to us, please report them at oathkeepers.org/contact-us.
- Names in Thread Titles: Please refrain from placing the names of Oath Keepers employees or community members in your thread titles. Directing a thread at a specific individual, or otherwise using a thread to call someone out, is not considered constructive. If you need to get a hold of a specific community member, please send them a private message.
- Naming-and-Shaming: We do not allow posts or threads that are created for the purpose of “naming-and-shaming” other community member(s). “Naming-and-shaming” is the act of creating a post to call out an individual or group by name, and making them the subject of public accusation, ridicule and/or shaming. Generally, naming-and-shaming involves a Terms of Service violation, which the Oath Keepers Team is unable to assist with. It typically elevates to a point where the subject feels legitimately harassed. We believe that naming-and-shaming posts and threads can be abused and are very harmful to the community. We also don’t feel that publicly calling out or accusing others by name on our forums is in the spirit of our community. If you genuinely believe someone has violated our Terms of Service, you should report them through oathkeepers.org/contact-us – do not bring the situation onto the forums.
- Petitions and Protests: We do not allow petitions or protests on our forums. Due to the fact that both promote the use of demands and replies that consist of “/signed” or little else, we feel that neither encourage nor allow for meaningful and constructive discussion. Instead of using a petition or protest, we recommend presenting your thoughts as a request or suggestion so everyone in the community can discuss it.
- Rude and Insulting Comments: We understand that sometimes tempers rise, but it is never acceptable to resort to rude comments and insults. This goes for rude comments and insults directed at other community members, and Oath Keepers employees alike.
- Spamming: Please do not post spam on the official forums. Below are a few examples of what we define as spamming:
- Posting the same message more than once
- Posting messages that are nonsensical or have no real content
- Posting messages or images large enough to disrupt the normal flow of conversation
- Reposting material that has been removed by a member of the Oath Keepers Team
- Also, please refrain from posting the same topic in multiple areas of the forum, or cross-posting in an attempt to gain further views or replies. This is considered spamming, and the duplicate threads will be removed
- Thread Bumping: Please refrain from replying to discussion threads for the sole purpose of “bumping” them. This is considered to be a form of spam because it does not add to the discussion in a constructive or meaningful way. We understand that everyone would like to keep their discussion active and visible, but we encourage you to strive for meaningful and constructive posts instead of posts that consist of nothing more than “Bump!”
- Trolling or Baiting: The act of trolling is defined as something that is created for the intent to provoke conflict, shock others, or to elicit a strong negative or emotional reaction. It is okay and very normal to disagree with others, and even to debate, but provoking conflict, baiting, inciting, mocking, etc. is never acceptable in the official forums. If you do not have something constructive or meaningful to add to a discussion, we strongly recommend you refrain from posting in that thread, and find another discussion to participate in instead. It is also not constructive or helpful to publicly call out others and accuse them of trolling, or call them a troll – please refrain from doing so. If you genuinely believe someone is trolling, please report the post or thread to the Oath Keepers Team, and leave it at that.
- Oath Keepers Legal Matters: We do not allow discussion of any legal matters involving Oath Keepers or any of our associated companies.

This Section 2 shall survive any termination of these Terms of Service.
A. Content Generally
“Content” includes technology, text, forum posts, chat posts, profiles, widgets, messages, links, emails, music, sound, graphics, animations, animation-style videos, content, pictures, code, files, data, characters (and items and attributes associated with characters), and all audio visual or other material appearing on or emanating to and/or from the Services, as well as the design and appearance of any websites under Oath Keepers’ control. All Content made available by Oath Keepers, unless explicitly identified as third party content, is owned by Oath Keepers, its affiliates and/or their licensors.
You may not copy or download any Content from a Service unless You are expressly authorized to do so by Oath Keepers in writing. You acknowledge and agree that You shall not reproduce, prepare derivative works based upon, distribute, publicly perform, or transmit any Content for commercial uses unless You obtained the express written consent of an authorized representative of Oath Keepers. For clarification purposes, “derivative works based upon” Services and/or Content are works that are substantially similar, both in ideas and expression, to Services and/or Content. Therefore, if You or someone else creates a work and it is likely to bring to mind either or both Services =and Content, then it is likely that such work is a derivative work and as such may not be used for commercial purposes.
B. User-Generated Content
Content includes user-generated Content that You contribute, provide, post, upload or otherwise submit to Oath Keepers via a Service (“UGC“).
UGC includes any photographs, images, video, music and sounds that You contribute, provide, post, upload or otherwise submit to Oath Keepers via a Service (collectively, “Your UGC“).
UGC includes Content contributed, provided, posted, uploaded or otherwise submitted to Oath Keepers by any other person using or via the Services.
UGC also includes Content that is not Your UGC, including but is not limited to, Account personas, user names, forum posts, chat posts, customer service chats, communications, or other suggestions, ideas, notes, feedback, concepts or other information concerning the Services, whether generated at Oath Keepers’ specific request or despite Oath Keepers’ request that You not do so (such as Unsolicited Materials as described in Section 13) (collectively, “Oath Keepers Owned UGC“). Oath Keepers Owned UGC also includes all Content that You create or develop using Content provided or made available by Oath Keepers, including but not limited to Content that You create or develop that is a derivative work of the Content provided or made available by Oath Keepers. For clarity, Content and materials that are created, developed or accessible within a Service using Content or tools provided by Oath Keepers are Oath Keepers Owned UGC.
For clarity, Oath Keepers Owned UGC does not include (i) any Content that You create or develop if such Content or if the creation or development of such Content would constitute a breach of this Agreement or any Supplementary Terms or would violate any law, or (ii) any Content that You create or develop without the use of Content provided or made available by Oath Keepers.
Oath Keepers does not pre-screen UGC and does not endorse or approve any UGC that You and other users may contribute, provide, post, upload or otherwise submit via the Services. You are solely responsible for Your UGC and may be held liable for UGC that You contribute, provide, post, upload or otherwise submit.
You may not contribute, provide, post, upload or otherwise submit any UGC that is copyrighted, protected by trade secret law or otherwise subject to third party intellectual property rights, including, but not limited to, privacy and publicity rights, unless You own those rights free and clear or have written permission from their rightful owner to contribute, provide, post, upload or otherwise submit such UGC and to grant or assign the described license and property rights to Oath Keepers as described below.
As between You and Oath Keepers, You will be the owner of all of Your UGC (as defined above). To the fullest extent permitted by law, You hereby expressly grant (or You warrant that the owner of Your UGC has expressly granted) to Oath Keepers and its licensors, licensees and designees a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, paid-up, non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable (through multiple tiers of sublicensees) right and license to exercise all rights of any kind or nature associated with Your UGC in all formats and media, whether existing now or in the future, and You agree not to assert or enforce any moral rights or similar rights You may have which may now or may hereafter be recognized, and all ancillary and subsidiary rights, in any languages and media now known or not currently known.
Unless otherwise prohibited by applicable law or regulation, by contributing, providing, posting, uploading or otherwise submitting Oath Keepers Owned UGC or creating Oath Keepers Owned UGC, You acknowledge and agree that all such Oath Keepers Owned UGC is the sole property of Oath Keepers and You hereby assign and agree to assign to Oath Keepers all such Oath Keepers Owned UGC contributed, provided, posted, uploaded or otherwise submitted by You and such assignment will be effective on the date the Oath Keepers Owned UGC is created. To the extent that Oath Keepers cannot claim exclusive ownership rights in such Oath Keepers UGC by operation of law or pursuant to the assignment noted above, and to the fullest extent permitted by law, You hereby expressly grant (or You warrant that the owner of such Oath Keepers UGC has expressly granted) to Oath Keepers and its licensors, licensees and designees a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, paid-up, non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable (through multiple tiers of sublicensees) right and license to exercise all rights of any kind or nature associated with such Oath Keepers UGC in all formats and media, whether existing now or in the future, and You agree not to assert or enforce any moral rights or similar rights You may have which may now or may hereafter be recognized, and all ancillary and subsidiary rights, in any languages and media now known or not currently known.
You further grant each user of the Services a non-exclusive license to access UGC and to use, reproduce, distribute, display and perform such UGC as permitted through the Services.
If so required under applicable law, You will enter into any agreement or undertake any action as deemed necessary by Oath Keepers to effect the licenses described above in this Section.
IN ALL CASES of UGC under THIS section 2, EXCEPT AS PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW AND SUBJECT TO THE STATUTORY OBLIGATIONS (AS DEFINED IN SECTION 1), Oath Keepers reserves the right (but has no obligation except as required by law) to REVIEW, remove, block, edit, move or disable UGC for any reason, with or without notice, and HAS no liability of any kind WITH RESPECT TO UGC, including WITHOUT LIMITATION when Oath Keepers determines that UGC violates THESE TERMS OF SERVICE. The decision to remove UGC or other Content at any time is in Oath Keepers’ sole and final discretion. To the maximum extent permitted by law, Oath Keepers does not assume any responsibility or liability for UGC or for ITS removal or FOR any failure to or delay in removing, UGC or other Content.
C. Downloadable Content and Other Virtual Items
Content also includes Content that is downloaded or downloadable from any website under Oath Keepers’ control (“Downloadable Content“). Downloadable Content includes, but is not limited to, licensed rights granted, awarded, and/or provided to You to access and/or use online or off-line elements or features of certain Services as well as unlockable Content, digital and/or virtual assets, rights of use tied to unlock keys or codes, serial codes and/or online authentication of any kind. Downloadable Content also includes Virtual Currency, and Virtual Currency is subject to additional terms and restrictions specific to Virtual Currency as set forth below in Section 2(D), which additional terms and restrictions supersede any inconsistent terms and restrictions applicable to Downloadable Content generally. Downloadable Content may be free, redeemable, and/or purchased, and Oath Keepers reserves the right to change the price of Downloadable Content at any time, without notice. Downloadable Content may only be held in Accounts belonging to legal residents of countries where access to and use of the Services and Downloadable Content are permitted. Oath Keepers hereby grants to You a limited, non-exclusive, personal, non-transferable license to use, view and display Downloadable Content that You have properly downloaded.
Once You have redeemed Downloadable Content, that Content is not returnable, exchangeable, or refundable for other Content or for cash, other goods or services unless approved by Oath Keepers or required by applicable law and subject to the Statutory Obligations (as defined in Section 1); for example, if Oath Keepers downloaded the wrong Content to You, You may be entitled to a refund. Unless otherwise specified by Oath Keepers in writing and unless otherwise prohibited by applicable law and subject to the Statutory Obligations (as defined in Section 1), Downloadable Content may expire upon the earlier of (a) the closure of an Account, or (b) the later of one hundred and eighty (180) days past (i) the most recent Account login by You or (ii) the end of Your subscription or membership for the applicable Service if such subscription or membership is not renewed.
You agree that You have no ownership right or title in or to any such Downloadable Content, including, but not limited to, the virtual goods appearing or originating in the Services or any other attributes associated with any Account or Services. Oath Keepers does not recognize any purported sale, gift or trade in the “real world” of anything that appears or originates in a Service. Accordingly, You may not sell, and You may not assist others in selling, Service(s) for real currency, or exchange those items for value outside of the Services. Evidence of any attempt to redeem Downloadable Content for a purported exchange, sale, gift or trade in the “real world” will result in the immediate suspension or termination of Your Account.
You acknowledge and agree that all virtual items represent a limited license right for Your personal, private, non-commercial, non-transferable, and limited use governed by these Terms of Service and are not redeemable for any sum of money or monetary value from Oath Keepers at any time. Oath Keepers reserves the right to refuse Your request(s) to acquire Downloadable Content, and reserves the right to limit or block any request to acquire Downloadable Content for any or no reason.
D. Virtual Currency
The Services may make use of one or more virtual currencies, either within a single Service or for use across multiple Services (“Virtual Currency“). The following terms govern the use of Virtual Currency in connection with the Oath Keepers Services.
Virtual Currency may be obtained in one or more ways depending on the type of Virtual Currency and the Service or Services associated with that Virtual Currency, including without limitation Virtual Currency that may be obtained through purchase with real currency, as a part of membership benefits, or otherwise. Oath Keepers may, from time to time and in its sole discretion, grant Virtual Currency to Users of one or more Services as a gesture of goodwill or in connection with promotions, memberships, competitions, or sweepstakes organized by Oath Keepers. All Virtual Currency that is purchased with real currency, either alone or together with other Services or access to Services (including without limitation payment for memberships), shall be referred to as “Purchased Virtual Currency.” All Virtual Currency that is not Purchased Virtual Currency shall be referred to as “Complimentary Virtual Currency.”
Regardless of the method by which You obtain a Virtual Currency and subject only to the Statutory Obligations (as defined in Section 1), it has no value in real currency, and is not transferable to any other person, or returnable, exchangeable, or refundable for real currency, goods, or services. By purchasing or otherwise obtaining Virtual Currency, you acknowledge and agree that all Virtual Currencies represent a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license for Your personal, private, non-commercial use of Oath Keepers Services governed by these Terms of Service. Because it is a license, Virtual Currency is not property in which You have any ownership right, title, or other interest. Any Virtual Currency balance shown in Your Account does not constitute a real currency balance or reflect any monetary value.
Oath Keepers reserves the right to change the price for any Purchased Virtual Currency or to bundle Purchased Virtual Currency in any amount with other Services or access to other Services at any time and without providing notice to You. You will have no right to a refund as a result of any change in the price or bundling at which Purchase Virtual Currency can be obtained, subject only to the Statutory Obligations (as defined in Section 1). In the case of Complimentary Virtual Currency, Oath Keepers reserves the right to change or limit the amount of Complimentary Virtual Currency granted as part of any ongoing or continuous promotion, to discontinue any promotion or to bundle Complimentary Virtual Currency in any amount with other Services or access to other Services at any time and without providing notice to You.
Virtual Currency is not transferable to, or redeemable for, any sum of real currency or monetary value from Oath Keepers or any other person at any time. Oath Keepers prohibits, and does not recognize any purported, transfers, sales, gifts, or trades of Virtual Currency. Virtual Currency will only be used by You to obtain virtual goods or other Downloadable Content, through one or more Services, as determined by Oath Keepers in its sole discretion. You agree not to sell or transfer, or assist others in selling or transferring Virtual Currencies or any amounts thereof. Evidence of any attempt to use, sell or transfer Virtual Currency in any manner that violates these Terms of Service may result in revocation, termination, or cancellation of the Virtual Currency and/or Your use of the Services without refund and/or immediate suspension or termination of Your Account.

You must provide truthful and accurate information, and update such information to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. During the registration process, You may be required to create a password. Oath Keepers has the right to restrict, suspend, or terminate Your Account and refuse any and all current or future use of Services if Oath Keepers reasonably believes that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete.
Some Services may require creation of a user name, such as a “UserID” or “Display Name” to represent You in the Services, and which are tied to Your Account (collectively, “user name(s)“). You may not select the name of another person, any third party’s trademark, copyright, or other intellectual property infringement, any name that could mislead other users to believe You to be an employee of Oath Keepers or affiliated companies, or any name that Oath Keepers deems in its sole discretion to be vulgar, offensive, or otherwise violates these Terms of Service. Subject to the Statutory Obligations (as defined below), Oath Keepers reserves the right, in its sole discretion, (a) to delete or alter any user names tied to an Account; and (b) to restrict, suspend or terminate Your access to any Service or license granted to You, for any reason whatsoever, including, without limitation, any suspected or actual infringement of any trademark or trade name right, copyright, or other proprietary right.
By creating an Account, You agree that You do not own the Account, any user names created on the Account, any Content stored or associated with an Account (such as digital and/or virtual assets, achievements, virtual currency, and other Downloadable Content), or related data associated with the Account.
Accounts are non-transferable under all circumstances. You have sole liability for all activities on Your Account and/or under Your user names. You may be held liable for losses incurred by Oath Keepers or other third parties due to someone else using Your Account, user name or password. Your Account or certain features of Your Account may be restricted, suspended, and/or terminated if someone else uses Your Account, user name or password to engage in activity that violates these Terms of Service or is otherwise improper or illegal. You agree to notify Oath Keepers immediately of any unauthorized use of Your Account, user name, or password, or any other breach of security.
Do not reveal Your Account password to others. Oath Keepers employees will not ask You to reveal Your password. You provide Your password only during automatic Account Services, such as during the log-on process, or if You initiate a “Forgot Password” request to obtain security questions.

13. Dispute Resolution, Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
If You reside in the EEA/Switzerland/Australia/New Zealand, then only this first paragraph of this Section 13 will apply to You. Oath Keepers will try and solve any disagreements that arise between You and Oath Keepers promptly and efficiently. You and Oath Keepers may agree to refer any disputed matter to resolution proceedings other than in a court but You and Oath Keepers are not restricted from bringing court proceedings at any time.
If You reside outside the EEA/Switzerland/Australia/New Zealand, then the terms below in this Section 13 apply to You.
This Section 13 facilitates the prompt and efficient resolution of any disputes that may arise between You and Oath Keepers. Arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution in which persons with a dispute waive their rights to file a lawsuit, to proceed in court and to a jury trial, and instead submit their disputes to a neutral third person (or arbitrator) for a binding decision. You have the right to opt-out of this Section 13 (as explained below), which means You would retain Your right to file a lawsuit and litigate Your disputes in a court, either before a judge or jury. Certain of the terms below in this Section reference “class actions” or “other collective disputes or representative actions.” If You reside in a jurisdiction that does not permit class actions or other collective disputes or representative actions, such terms will not apply to You.
Please read this Section 13 carefully. It provides that all Disputes (defined below) between You and Oath Keepers shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court. In the absence of this arbitration agreement, You may otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring claims in court, before a judge or jury, and/or participate in or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including, but not limited to, class actions, collective actions or representative actions). Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Section 13 or applicable law, entering into these Terms of Service constitutes a waiver of Your right to litigate claims and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow these Terms of Service and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including, but not limited to, attorneys’ fees). The arbitrator may not award damages disclaimed by these Terms of Service.
For the purpose of this Section 13, “Oath Keepers” collectively refers to Oath Keepers, its subsidiary and affiliate companies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents. The term “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy between You and Oath Keepers regarding or related to any aspect of Your relationship with Oath Keepers, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes, but not limited to, the validity, enforceability or scope of this Section 13 (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). “Dispute” is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced.
YOU AND OATH KEEPERS EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT OR IN ANY OTHER PROCEEDING IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS SECTION 13.
A. Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution. For all Disputes, whether pursued in court or arbitration, You must first give Oath Keepers an opportunity to resolve the Dispute. You must commence this process by mailing written notification to Oath Keepers Inc, Attn: Legal Dep’t, 5130 S Fort Apache Rd, Ste 215, Las Vegas, NV 89148 USA. That written notification must include (1) Your name, (2) Your address, (3) a written description of Your Dispute, and (4) a description of the specific relief You seek. If Oath Keepers does not resolve the Dispute to your satisfaction within forty-five (45) days after receipt of Your written notification, You may pursue Your Dispute in arbitration. You may pursue Your Dispute in a court only under the circumstances described below.
B. Exclusions from Arbitration/Right to Opt Out. Notwithstanding the above, You or Oath Keepers may choose to pursue a Dispute in court and not by arbitration if (a) the Dispute is initiated in small claims court; or (b) YOU OPT-OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT YOU FIRST CONSENT TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE (the “Opt-Out Deadline“). You may opt out by mailing written notification to Oath Keepers Inc, Attn: Legal Dep’t,5130 S Fort Apache Rd, Ste 215, Las Vegas, NV 89148 USA. Your written notification must include (1) Your name, (2) Your address, and (3) a clear statement that You do not wish to resolve disputes through arbitration. Your decision to opt-out will have no adverse effect on Your relationship with Oath Keepers. Any opt-out request received after the Opt-Out Deadline will not be valid and You must pursue Your Dispute in arbitration or small claims court.
- Arbitration Procedures. If this Provision applies and the Dispute is not resolved as provided above (“Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution“) either You or Oath Keepers may initiate arbitration proceedings. If You reside in North America, the American Arbitration Association (“AAA“), www.adr.org, will arbitrate all Disputes. If You do not reside in North America, the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (“ICDR“), www.icdr.org, will arbitrate all Disputes. The arbitration taking place before the ICDR will be conducted in English before a single arbitrator. In either case, the arbitration shall be commenced as an individual arbitration, and shall in no event be commenced as a class arbitration. The arbitrator shall have the exclusive authority to decide all issues with respect to Section 13, including, but not limited to whether any particular claim asserted by You or Oath Keepers falls within the scope of this Section 13 and any alleged ambiguities in this Section 13.
- In Disputes before the AAA, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will apply for Disputes of less than $75,000, the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply for Disputes involving $75,000 or more, and in either instance the AAA’s Optional Rules For Emergency Measures Of Protection shall apply. The ICDR’s rules will apply to Disputes before that entity. AAA and ICDR rules are available at www.adr.org and www.icdr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. This Provision governs in the event it conflicts with the applicable arbitration rules of the AAA or ICDR. Based on the class action waiver set forth in subsection 13(B)(vii) below, under no circumstances will class action procedures or rules apply to the arbitration.
- Because the Services and these Terms of Service concern interstate commerce, the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA“) governs the arbitrability of all Disputes. However, the arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and the applicable statute of limitations or condition precedent to suit.
- Arbitration Award. The arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available pursuant to applicable law and these Terms of Service, and will not have the power to award relief to, against or for the benefit of any person who is not a party to the proceeding. The arbitrator will make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. Such award will be final and binding on the parties, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA, and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement.
- Location of Arbitration. If You reside in North America, You or Oath Keepers may initiate arbitration in either Las Vegas, NV USA or the judicial district that includes the address You provide in Your written notification of Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution. In the event that You select the judicial district that includes the address You provide in Your written notification of Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution, Oath Keepers may transfer the arbitration to Las Vegas, NV, USA in the event that it agrees to pay any additional fees or costs You incur as a result of the transfer, as determined by the arbitrator. If You do not reside in North America, the arbitration shall take place in London, England or Sydney, Australia as requested by You.
- Payment of Arbitration Fees and Costs. Oath Keepers will pay all arbitration filing fees and arbitrator’s costs and expenses upon Your written request given prior to the commencement of the arbitration or as otherwise required by applicable law. You are responsible for all additional fees and costs that You incur in the arbitration, including, but not limited to, attorneys or expert witnesses. Fees and costs may be awarded as provided pursuant to applicable law. In addition to any rights to recover fees and costs under applicable law, if You provide notice and negotiate in good faith with Oath Keepers as provided in the section above titled “Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution” and the arbitrator concludes that You are the prevailing party in the arbitration, You will be entitled to recover reasonable attorney’s fees and costs as determined by the arbitrator.
- Class Action Waiver. Any arbitration proceedings initiated pursuant to this Section 13 will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, collective, consolidated or representative action or as a member of a class, collective, consolidated or representative action. If You choose to pursue Your Dispute in court by opting out of this Provision, as specified above, this Class Action Waiver will not apply to You. Neither You, nor any other user of the Services can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, consolidated, or representative proceeding without having complied with the opt-out requirements above.
C. Jury Waiver. You understand and agree that by entering into these Terms of Service You and Oath Keepers are each waiving the right to a jury trial or a trial before a judge in a public court. In the absence of this Section 13, You and Oath Keepers might otherwise have had a right or opportunity to bring Disputes in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including, but not limited to, class actions). Except as otherwise provided below, those rights are waived. Other rights that You would have if You went to court, such as the right to appeal and to certain types of discovery, may be more limited or may also be waived.
D. Severability. If any clause within this Section 13 (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Section 13, and the remainder of this Section 13 will be given full force and effect. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, if the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, this entire Section 13 will be unenforceable and the Dispute will be decided by a court.
E. Continuation. This Section 13 shall survive the termination of these Terms of Service and Your use of the Services.
14. Unsolicited Materials
Oath Keepers has an established policy not to accept or consider any unsolicited material, ideas or suggestions of any nature whatsoever. Please do not send us any unsolicited materials, as they will not be considered by anyone at Oath Keepers. Any unsolicited materials sent will be treated as non-confidential, and Oath Keepers will not be liable for any use or disclosure of such unsolicited material.
If You do send any creative materials, including, but not limited to, feedback, creative suggestions, error corrections, ideas, notes, drawings, music, concepts, data, or other Content that is not UGC, transmitted via the Services, websites, U.S. Postal Service, Fed-Ex, mail, electronic mail or otherwise (collectively “Information“), such creative materials and communications shall to the fullest extent permitted by law be deemed to be the property of Oath Keepers and You hereby assign and agree to assign to Oath Keepers full and unfettered ownership of all such Information.

If any change is unacceptable to You, You may cancel Your subscription or membership at any time with such termination being effective at the end of the then-current subscription or membership period for which You previously paid, but Oath Keepers will not refund any fees or prorate fees for any subscription or membership except as prohibited by applicable law and subject to the Statutory Obligations (as defined in Section 1) unless the cancellation is requested within the first ten days of the subscription, and a formal request is made in writing.
As the Account holder, You are responsible for all charges incurred on Your Account, including, but not limited to, applicable taxes, and all purchases made by You or anyone that uses Your Account, including, but not limited to, Your family or friends.
