XV. DISPUTE RESOLUTION – ARBITRATION PROVISIONS
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. THE ARBITRATION CLAUSE, JURY WAIVER, SEVERABILITY PROVISION AND THE REST OF THIS SECTION ARE IMPORTANT PARTS OF THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND THE COMPANY.
These Terms are governed by and will be construed under the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to the conflicts of laws provisions thereof. Any and all claims between you and the Company shall be finally arbitrated: (1) in English; (2) in accordance with the Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) then in effect; (3) your state of residence; (4) at the Company’s expense to the extent required by law; (5) pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act; (6) by one arbitrator who shall: (i) be selected from the appropriate list of AAA arbitrators in accordance with such Rules; (ii) have sole authority to decide any question concerning the scope, applicability, enforceability, revocability, and/or validity of this arbitration agreement; and (iii) be barred from presiding over any class, collective, or representative action, consolidating multiple claimants’ cases or awarding any non-individualized relief (“Class Action Waiver”). The arbitrator shall have no authority to consider or resolve any claim or issue any relief on any basis other than an individual basis. The arbitrator shall have no authority to consider or resolve any claim or issue any relief on a class, collective, or representative basis. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claims. Judgment upon the award rendered by such arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Any arbitration will take place on an individual basis. Class arbitrations, class actions, representative actions, any other form of collective action or consolidated proceedings are not permitted. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND THE COMPANY ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. If the above Class-Action Waiver is found to be unenforceable or invalid, any class or representative claims would proceed in state or federal courts located in Miami, Florida. Under no circumstances shall any class or representative claims proceed in arbitration. To the extent the Class Action Waiver is valid, claims subject to the Class Action Waiver shall go forward in individual arbitration (as described above) and any such claims shall be stayed pending resolution of the individual arbitration. If any provision of this Section XIII is found to be invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be deemed appropriately modiﬁed to give effect to the intent of the provision or, if modiﬁcation is not possible, will be severed and the remainder of this Section XIII will continue in full force and effect. No waiver of any provision of this Section XIII will be effective or enforceable unless recorded in a writing signed by the party waiving such a right or requirement. Such a waiver will not waive or affect any other provision of these Terms. This Section XIII will survive the termination of your relationship with the Company.
The Services are operated from the Company’s servers in the United States. You are responsible for compliance with the laws of the jurisdiction in which it is located. In no event shall you use the Services in any location where such use is prohibited or restricted by local law or where the Company would incur a tax or fee obligation that would not be paid by you. You may not use or export the Services or the products thereof in violation of United States laws and regulations, including, without limitation, export administration regulations. The Company may assign this agreement in its sole discretion at any time.
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) requires that online service providers obtain parental consent before they knowingly collect personally identifiable information online from children who are under 13. The Company does not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from a child under 13 without obtaining verifiable consent from that child’s parent or guardian (“Parental Consent”), except for the limited amount of personally identifiable information the Company needs to collect in order to obtain Parental Consent (“Required Information”). Until the Company has received Parental Consent, the Company will only use Required Information for the purpose of obtaining Parental Consent. If you are a child under 13, please do not attempt to send any personal information about yourself to the Company before the Company obtains Parental Consent, except for the Required Information in the context of the Parental Consent process. If you believe that a child under 13 has provided the Company with personal information (beyond the Required Information) without the Company first obtaining Parental Consent, please contact the Company at firstname.lastname@example.org
Under no circumstances will any Related Party be liable for any delay or failure in performance due in whole or in part to any acts of God (such as earthquakes, storms, ﬂoods, etc.), unavoidable accidents, laws, rules, regulations or orders of government authorities, acts of war (declared or not), terrorism, hostilities, blockades, civil disturbances, embargoes, strikes, or any other event or cause beyond the reasonable control of any Related Party.
We may change these Terms. If we do, the revised Terms will be effective immediately if you accept them (for example, by agreeing when you create an account or login to an existing account, or using or continuing to use our App after the revised Terms have been posted); otherwise, they will be effective 30 days after posting.
