ProvenBase Chrome Extension
To utilize the ProvenBase Chrome Extension (the “Extension”), Users must possess an active ProvenBase User account. The ProvenBase Chrome Extension enhances User experience by providing additional information, sourced from ProvenBase, related to or matching candidates on third-party websites or systems being browsed. This includes, but is not limited to, contact details and insights not readily available on those external platforms. The sole purpose is to assist Users in their tasks within the ProvenBase account or generate relevant information to enhance their overall experience on the ProvenBase Platform.
Additionally, the ProvenBase Chrome Extension grants Users access to certain features otherwise exclusive to the ProvenBase Platform. Following the addition or installation of the ProvenBase Chrome Extension, Users can manually initiate it or grant automatic access to specific websites or systems by managing the Extension settings within their Google Chrome web browser.
It’s important to note that the content, data, and information provided through the ProvenBase Chrome Extension are delivered at the User’s request. While this content is believed to be reliable, ProvenBase does not guarantee its accuracy, timeliness, or completeness.

Upon adding or installing the ProvenBase Chrome Extension to your Google Chrome web browser, ProvenBase hereby provides you with a limited, non-exclusive, and revocable license (the “License”). This License allows you to install and use the ProvenBase Chrome Extension exclusively for the purpose of identifying potential candidates for recruitment and initiating initial contact with said candidates (that is, the Authorized Purposes as defined below). Periodically, we may update or modify the ProvenBase Chrome Extension in order to make it compatible with the newer version of Chrome, and as a result, we may automatically update the installed Extension on your device or provide updates, including patches, bug fixes, corrections, enhancements, plug-ins, and new versions of the Extension (the “Update(s)”). You hereby consent to receiving such Updates automatically. If it is determined that the Update will fix a critical security vulnerability or critical operability issue related to the Extension, the Update may be completed irrespectively of your Update settings.
Your use of the ProvenBase Chrome Extension, including any Updates, is bound by and subject to the terms of this Agreement. ProvenBase is not obligated to maintain, support, upgrade, or update the ProvenBase Chrome Extension. At any time, and at its sole discretion, ProvenBase may terminate or suspend your License, and deactivate the ProvenBase Chrome Extension on your device without prior notice, as outlined in the Termination Section below.

38. Choice of Law
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws in force in the State of Virginia. The offer and acceptance of this Agreement is deemed to have occurred in the State of Virginia.
Any dispute relating in any way to your visit to the Platform or the ProvenBase Services shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in Fairfax, Virginia. Arbitration under this Agreement shall be conducted pursuant to the applicable Commercial Rules (the “Rules”) then prevailing at the American Arbitration Association. Arbitration shall be conducted in English by one (1) arbitrator as selected pursuant to the Rules; the arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. Each party shall be responsible for their own arbitration fees and costs. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under this Agreement shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to this Agreement, whether through class action proceedings or otherwise. Where permitted by the Rules, both parties may make any and all appearances telephonically, in written briefs, or electronically. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of, related to or connected with the use of the Platform or this Agreement, must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever banned. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek equitable relief to protect its interests (including, but not limited to, injunctive relief), or make a claim for nonpayment, in a court of appropriate jurisdiction, and issues of intellectual property ownership or infringement may be decided only by a court of appropriate jurisdiction and not by arbitration. In the event that the law does not permit the above-mentioned dispute to be resolved through arbitration or if this arbitration agreement is unenforceable, you agree that any actions and disputes shall be brought solely in a court of competent jurisdiction located within Fairfax, Virginia.
You may opt out of this dispute resolution provision by notifying ProvenBase within thirty (30) days of the date on which you entered into this Agreement or purchased a subscription, whichever is earlier. You must do so by writing to: ProvenBase, Inc, 4000 Legato Rd, Suite 1100, Fairfax, Virginia 22033, United States of America, attn: Arbitration Opt-Out, and you must include your name, address, account information, and a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with ProvenBase through arbitration. Where you opt out of arbitration, all disputes shall be heard in a court of competent jurisdiction located within Fairfax, Virginia.
40. Class Action Waiver
You and ProvenBase agree that any proceedings to resolve or litigate any dispute whether through a court of law or arbitration shall be solely conducted on an individual basis. You agree that you will not seek to have any dispute heard as a class action, representative action, collective action, or private attorney general action.
In the event that a provision of this Agreement is found to be unlawful, conflicting with another provision of the Agreement, or otherwise unenforceable, the Agreement will remain in force as though it had been entered into without that unenforceable provision being included in it. If two or more provisions of this Agreement or any other agreement you may have with ProvenBase are deemed to conflict with each other’s operation, ProvenBase shall have the sole right to elect which provision remains in force.
We reserve all rights permitted to us under this Agreement as well as under the provisions of any applicable law. Our non-enforcement of any particular provision or provisions of this Agreement or any applicable law should not be construed as our waiver of the right to enforce that same provision under the same or different circumstances at any time in the future.
43. Assignment and Survival
You may not assign your rights and/or obligations under this Agreement to any other party without our prior written consent. We may assign our rights and/or obligations under this Agreement to any other party at our discretion.
