16. DISPUTE RESOLUTION


Informal Negotiations


To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy, or claim related to these Terms of Use (each "Dispute" and collectively, the “Disputes”) brought by either you or us (individually, a “Party” and collectively, the “Parties”), the Parties agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating arbitration. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one Party to the other Party.


Binding Arbitration


If the Parties are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) will be finally and exclusively resolved through binding arbitration. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WITHOUT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes ("AAA Consumer Rules"), both of which are available at the AAA website: www.adr.org. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Consumer Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by either Party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except where otherwise required by the applicable AAA rules or applicable law, the arbitration will take place in United States , New York. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.


If for any reason, a Dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration, the Dispute shall be commenced or prosecuted in the state and federal courts located in United States, New York, and the Parties hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction, and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in such state and federal courts. Application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act (UCITA) is excluded from these Terms of Use.


In no event shall any Dispute brought by either Party related in any way to the Site be commenced more than one (1) years after the cause of action arose. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable, and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.


Restrictions


The Parties agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between the Parties individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be joined with any other proceeding; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.


Exceptions to Informal Negotiations and Arbitration


The Parties agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of the intellectual property rights of a Party; (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy, or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for injunctive relief. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.

  • You will always maintain ownership of your data. We do NOT sell or trade your data with anybody, EVER.

  • You may discover unanticipated facts about yourself or your family when using our Services that you may not have the ability to change (e.g. you may discover an unknown genetic link to a particular lineage, surprising facts about your ethnicity, or unexpected information in public records).

Genetic Counseling


Ancestry sessions and analysis may not be for everyone. If you are unsure about whether or not to do an ancestry session, genetic testing and analysis, consult with your doctor, a genetic counselor, or other qualified health care professional first so that you can make an informed decision. If, after the testing and analysis, you need help with understanding or interpretation of the results, or if you have questions regarding the results, you should also consult with your doctor, a genetic counselor, or other qualified health care professional.


Trigger Warning, Risk and Considerations


Once you obtain your ancestral / genetic information, the knowledge is irrevocable. You should not assume that any information provided to you, whether now or as ancestral / genetic research advances, will be welcome or positive. As research advances, you may need to obtain further Services from your physician, a genetic counselor, or other healthcare provider. We encourage you to talk to a genetic counselor to help you understand your results and further testing options.


Johnathan Mercedes, Dawn Treader, Tribal Knowledge Academy, and Bloodlines, Tribes, Starfamily LLC are not responsible for what you do with the information you learn during your ancestry session. Johnathan Mercedes, Dawn Treader, Tribal Knowledge Academy, and Bloodlines, Tribes, Starfamily LLC make no guarantees of accuracy. The information you receive during your ancestry session or from your custom ancestry book is for entertainment purposes only. It is up to you to confirm all information, which you can do by seeking guidance and additional advice from a professional genetic counselor / professional genetic company.


Some people feel a little anxious about getting lineage results and you may learn information about yourself that you do not anticipate. This is normal. If you feel very anxious, you should speak to your physician or a genetic counselor prior to booking an appointment. Again, ancestry sessions and our custom ancestry books are designed for entertainment purposes only. We do NOT offer professional advice and are not a substitute for professional genetic testing company / professional advice from a genetic counselor.


Additionally, you may discover things about yourself that trouble you and that you may not have the ability to control or change (e.g., surprising facts related to your ancestry, or that someone with your genotype may have a higher than average chance of developing a specific condition or disease).


You should not change your health behaviors solely on the basis of Genetic / Ancestral Information received from Johnathan Mercedes, Dawn Treader, Tribal Knowledge Academy, and Bloodlines, Tribes, Starfamily LLC .


Tribal Knowledge Academy's Services are not intended to diagnose any condition or disease.


  • For most common diseases, the genes we know about are only responsible for a small fraction of the risk. Your ethnicity, environmental factors, lifestyle choices are far more important predictors and may affect the relevance of information learned in your session, impacting how your results may be interpreted.

  • The Services are not intended to tell you anything about your current state of health, or to be used to make medical decisions, including whether or not you should take a medication, how much of a medication you should take, or determine any treatment.

  • If you have concerns or questions about what you learn through Tribal Knowledge Academy, you should contact your physician or other healthcare provider before making any lifestyle changes. Again, ALL information provided by Tribal Knowledge Academy is for entertainment purposes ONLY and is NOT professional advice.

  • Talk to your Healthcare provider.
