THE UNITED STATES

If you are using the Platform in the United States, the following additional terms apply:

· Governing Law. These Terms, their subject matter and their formation, are governed by the laws of the State of California.

· Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

o This Section includes an arbitration agreement and an agreement that all claims will be brought only in an individual capacity (and not as a class action or other representative proceeding). Please read it carefully. YOU MAY OPT OUT OF THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT BY FOLLOWING THE OPT OUT PROCEDURE DESCRIBED BELOW.

o Informal Process First. You agree that in the event of any dispute between you and the Company, you will first contact the Company and make a good faith sustained effort to resolve the dispute before resorting to more formal means of resolution, including without limitation any court action.

o Arbitration Agreement. After the informal dispute resolution process any remaining dispute, controversy, or claim (collectively, “Claim”) relating in any way to your use of the Company’s services and/or products, including the Services, will be finally resolved by binding arbitration. This mandatory arbitration agreement applies equally to you and the Company. However, this arbitration agreement does not (a) govern any Claim by the Company for infringement of its intellectual property or access to the Services that is unauthorized or exceeds authorization granted in these Terms or (b) bar you from making use of applicable small claims court procedures in appropriate cases.

o You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and the Company are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision will survive any termination of these Terms.

o If you wish to begin an arbitration proceeding, after following the informal dispute resolution procedure, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to the Company via the below channels:

Email: capcut.support@bytedance.com

Address: Level 43, Asia Square Tower 1, 8 Marina View, Singapore 018960

o The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules including, if you are an individual, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. If you are not an individual or have used the Services on behalf of an entity, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will not be used. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879.

o The arbitration proceeding will be conducted in Los Angeles, California in the English language.

o Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. If you are an individual and have not accessed or used the Services on behalf of an entity, we will reimburse those fees for claims where the amount in dispute is less than $10,000, unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous, and we will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.

o The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court, will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, unconscionability, arbitrability, enforceability, or formation of this arbitration agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this arbitration agreement is void or voidable. However, the preceding sentence will not apply to the “Class Action Waiver” section below.

o If you do not want to arbitrate disputes with the Company and you are an individual, you may opt out of this arbitration agreement by sending a notice via email: capcut.support@bytedance.com within thirty (30) days of the first of the date you access or use the Services.

o CLASS ACTION WAIVER.ANY CLAIM MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE RESPECTIVE PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, COLLECTIVE, REPRESENTATIVE, MULTIPLE PLAINTIFF, OR SIMILAR PROCEEDING (“CLASS ACTION”). THE PARTIES EXPRESSLY WAIVE ANY ABILITY TO MAINTAIN ANY CLASS ACTION IN ANY FORUM. IF THE CLAIM IS SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION, THE ARBITRATOR WILL NOT HAVE AUTHORITY TO COMBINE OR AGGREGATE SIMILAR CLAIMS OR CONDUCT ANY CLASS ACTION NOR MAKE AN AWARD TO ANY PERSON OR ENTITY NOT A PARTY TO THE ARBITRATION. ANY CLAIM THAT ALL OR PART OF THIS CLASS ACTION WAIVER IS UNENFORCEABLE, UNCONSCIONABLE, VOID, OR VOIDABLE MAY BE DETERMINED ONLY BY A COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION AND NOT BY AN ARBITRATOR.

If this class action waiver is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of the Arbitration Agreement, if otherwise effective, will be null and void. If any other provision of the Arbitration Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be struck and the remaining provisions shall be enforced to the fullest extent under the law.

If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and the Company each waive any right to a jury trial.

· California Resident. If you are a California resident, in accordance with Cal. Civ. Code § 1789.3, you may report complaints to the Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs by contacting them in writing at 1625 North Market Blvd., Suite N 112 Sacramento, CA 95834, or by telephone at (800) 952-5210.

· If you reside in Germany Sections 9 and 10 of the terms are replaced by the following:

For damages with respect to injury to health, body or life caused by us, our representatives or our agents in the performance of the contractual obligations, we are fully liable. We are fully liable for damages caused wilfully or by gross negligence by us, our representatives or our agents in the performance of the contractual obligations. The same applies to damages which result from the absence of a quality which was guaranteed by us or to damages which result from malicious action. If damages with respect to a breach of a contractual core duty are caused by slight negligence, we are liable only for the amount of the damage which was typically foreseeable. Contractual core duties, abstractly, are such duties whose accomplishment enables proper performance of an agreement in the first place and whose performance a contractual party regularly may rely on. Our liability based on the German Product Liability Act remains unaffected. Any further liability is excluded. The limitation period for claims for damages against us expires after one (1) year.
