15. GOVERNING LAW, JURISDICTION AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION
Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed and construed in all respects by the laws of the State of California without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law.
Jurisdiction. Any claim or dispute related to, arising out of or involving this Agreement (“Claim”) must be resolved by a court located in San Mateo County, California or, if there is federal subject matter jurisdiction, the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. Both you and Company consent to exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue in these courts and waive any defense of lack of personal jurisdiction or venue. Further, all Claims filed or brought contrary to this provision and that below related to dispute resolution shall be considered improperly filed. Should you file a Claim improperly, Company may recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, provided that Company has notified you or your legal representative in writing of the improperly filed Claim and you have failed to withdraw it promptly.
Dispute Resolution. Before you may file or bring a Claim, you must first contact us and attempt to resolve it with us informally. If we cannot resolve the Claim informally, Company will consider reasonable requests to resolve the Claim through dispute resolution mechanisms such as mediation or arbitration, as alternatives to litigation.
For any Claim (excluding those seeking injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000, either party may elect to resolve it in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. In the event a party elects arbitration, they may initiate it through an established alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) provider of their choice. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: (i) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone or online and be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner to be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (ii) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and (iii) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Assignment. This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Company without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
Changes to the Agreement. Company may, in its sole discretion, revise, update or otherwise change this Agreement at any time without notice to you. You will be bound by the provisions of this Agreement as they appear on this website at the time you access it, and so you should review this page frequently. When we change the Agreement in a material manner, we will update the ‘last modified’ date at the bottom of this page. Your continued use of the Service after any such change constitutes your acceptance of the new Agreement. If you do not agree to any particular change to the Agreement, do not use or access (or continue to access) the Service.
Entire Agreement. This Agreement, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Company in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Company concerning the Service.
Termination. Company may terminate this Agreement or suspend or limit your account or access to the Service immediately, without prior notice or additional liability, under our sole discretion, for any reason whatsoever, including, without limitation, your breach of this Agreement. Upon termination, you shall cease use of the Service..
Survival. Provisions that by their nature should survive termination of this Agreement must survive termination, including, without limitation, indemnification (your responsibilities and liabilities), disclaimer of warranties, and limitation of liability. The licenses provided by you to Company, your obligations, and your authorizations described herein survive the termination of this Agreement.
Severability. Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement will be interpreted in such a manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision is deemed prohibited by or invalid under applicable law, such provision will be ineffective only to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity, without invalidating the remainder of the provision or any other provision of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect.
No Waiver. The failure of Company to exercise or enforce any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision, and a waiver of any right or provision of this Agreement will be effective only if in writing and signed by Company.
Contact. Please contact us at 1-833-996-2606 with any questions regarding this Agreement.
