Hollywood has often been criticized for its lack of diversity in hiring and storytelling. UNIFY has been created to address those critiques. We strive to assemble an diverse inventory of DVDs for users to purchase at the lowest price to promote culture and community. Why? Three simple reasons.
1) OUR PAST DESERVES IT.
The rich history of movies and television shows show the evolution of society and the incredible contributions of mankind. We must never forget the great stories of the past, because they deserve to be celebrated.
2) OUR PRESENT NEEDS IT.
The world today needs a service that has a mission that is greater than financial gain. UNIFY is using entertainment as a means to empower communities and families.
3) OUR FUTURE WILL BE SHAPED BY IT.
We believe entertainment can dramatically lead society in a positive direction. We will use this platform to help create the best world possible.
So those are the three reasons that drive us each day and why we created our filtering software. We believe that media is powerful and it cannot be solely left in the hands of Hollywood executives and programmers. You should have the freedom to create the environment you want for your family. UNIFY's filtering software is not about censorship. Our software allows you to freedom to experience great programs in your home based on how you govern your home. UNIFY is facilitating how your choose to take in entertainment that you desire by offering a way to filter out the stuff that personally don't want in your home.
We are devoted to our families, our customers, and our communities.

NOTICE OF ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
UNIFY DIGITAL LIBRARY FOR BLACK ARTS & CULTURE, Inc. and you agree to ARBITRATE all disputes and claims between us arising out of or relating to this Agreement, as broadly interpreted to include any aspect of our relationship, including claims related to advertising. You thus GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, EXCEPT that YOU MAY bring an action against us in SMALL CLAIMS COURT. The arbitration will be under the prevailing Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Agreement. The AAA Rules, including how to initiate a claim, are available online atwww.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 800-778-7879. If you choose arbitration, your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator and NOT a judge or jury. You are entitled to a FAIR HEARING, BUT arbitration procedures are SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT. Arbitrator decisions are as enforceable as any court order and are subject to VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT.
Arbitrations will be conducted by one Arbitrator and will be Desk Arbitrations unless you or we request a Telephonic Hearing (as defined by AAA Rules). There will be no In-Person Hearing unless a claim seeks more than $75,000. We will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees, unless the Arbitrator finds that your claim had no reasonable foundation or was brought for an improper purpose, in which case the Arbitrator must order you to pay those costs. After you notify us that you have commenced arbitration, we will promptly reimburse you the filing fee. If the Arbitrator issues an award in your favor on the merits of your claim that is greater than the value of our last written settlement offer made before the Arbitrator was selected, then the Arbitrator also may award you your reasonable attorney’s fees. We will not seek attorney’s fees from you even if we prevail. The Arbitrator will be bound by this Agreement.
The Arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the party seeking relief and only as necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. YOU AND DIRECT BRANDS, INC. AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and UNIFY DIGITAL LIBRARY FOR BLACK ARTS & CULTURE, Inc. agree otherwise, the Arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.
