Rosetta Terms of Service
Last Updated: June 16, 2020
The Rosetta Community is a service by Coinbase, Inc. (“Company” or “we” or “us” or “our”) that provides developer resources and a community to discuss important considerations around designing and implementing the Rosetta APIs. We have developed these Terms of Service (these “Terms”) to describe the terms that govern your use of our resources, developer documents, and internet forum located at rosetta-api.org (the “Rosetta Community Site”) (collectively, the “Services”).
The Company may offer other products and services, under different terms. These Terms apply only to use of the Rosetta Community Site.
We may modify the Terms at any time, in our sole discretion. If we do so, we’ll let you know either by posting the modified Terms on the Site, by providing you a notice in a manner we deem reasonable including notifications within the product’s dashboard, and through other communications. It’s important that you review the Terms whenever we modify them because if you continue to use the Services after we have modified the Terms, you are indicating to us that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by the modified Terms, you must stop using the Services. We may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services, at any time and without notice, at our sole discretion.

Forum and Venue
If you are a user located in the United States or Canada, the “Special Arbitration Provision for United States or Canada Users” section below applies to you.
If you are not subject to the “Special Arbitration Provision for United States or Canada Users” section below, you agree that you will resolve any claim you have with us relating to, arising out of, or in any way in connection with our Terms, us, or our Services (each, a “Dispute,” and together, “Disputes”) exclusively in the courts of San Francisco and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating all such Disputes.
Special Arbitration Provision for United States or Canada Users
If you are a user located in the United States or Canada, you and Company agree that any Dispute shall be finally settled in binding arbitration, on an individual basis, in accordance with the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation, Inc.’s rules for arbitration of consumer-related disputes (accessible at https://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/) and you and Company hereby expressly waive trial by jury and right to participate in a class action lawsuit or class-wide arbitration, except that each party retains the right: (i) to bring an individual action in small claims court and (ii) to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights (the action described in the foregoing clause (ii), an “IP Protection Action”). The exclusive jurisdiction of an IP Protection Action shall be the courts of San Francisco in California and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating IP Protection Actions.
The arbitration will be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator and shall take place in the county in which you reside, or another mutually agreeable location, in the English language. The arbitrator may award any relief that a court of competent jurisdiction could award, including attorneys’ fees when authorized by law, and the arbitral decision may be enforced in any court. At your request, hearings may be conducted in person or by telephone and the arbitrator may provide for submitting and determining motions on briefs, without oral hearings. The prevailing party in any action or proceeding to enforce this agreement shall be entitled to costs and attorneys’ fees.
If the arbitrator(s) or arbitration administrator would impose filing fees or other administrative costs on you, we will reimburse you, upon request, to the extent such fees or costs would exceed those that you would otherwise have to pay if you were proceeding instead in a court. We will also pay additional fees or costs if required to do so by the arbitration administrator’s rules or applicable law. Apart from the foregoing, each Party will be responsible for any other fees or costs, such as attorney fees that the Party may incur. If a court decides that any provision of this Special Arbitration Provision is invalid or unenforceable, that provision shall be severed and the other parts of this Special Arbitration Provision shall still apply. In any case, the remainder of this Terms of Service, will continue to apply.
These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Company and you regarding the Services and Content, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Company and you regarding the Services and Content. If any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable (either by an arbitrator appointed pursuant to the terms of the “Special Arbitration Provision” section above or by a court of competent jurisdiction, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null. We may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction.
