- Dispute Resolution; Arbitration
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH HVS AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
18.1. Binding Arbitration. Except for disputes in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, you and HVS: (a) waive your right to have any and all disputes or Claims arising from this Agreement or the Services (collectively, “Disputes“) resolved in a court; and (b) waive your right to a jury trial. Instead, you and HVS will arbitrate Disputes through binding arbitration (which is the referral of a Dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the Dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it instead of having the Dispute decided by a judge or jury in court).
18.2. No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions. You and HVS agree that any Dispute is personal to you and HVS and that such Dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. Neither party agrees to class arbitration or to an arbitration in which an individual attempts to resolve a Dispute as a representative of another individual or group of individuals. Further, you and HVS agree that a Dispute cannot be brought as a class or other type of representative action, whether within or outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other individual or group of individuals.
18.3. Federal Arbitration Act. You and HVS agree that this Agreement affects interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 18 shall be governed by, construed and enforced, both substantively and procedurally, by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (the “FAA“) to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
18.4. Process. You and HVS agree that you will notify each other in writing of any Dispute within thirty (30) days of when it arises so that we can attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute informally. Notice to HVS shall be sent by certified mail or courier to: High-Voltage Software, Inc., Attn: CFO, 2345 Pembrooke Avenue, Hoffman Estates, IL, 60169. Your notice must include: (a) your name, postal address and the email address you use for your HVS account; (b) a description of the nature or basis of the Dispute; and (c) the specific relief that you are seeking. If you and HVS cannot agree how to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after HVS receives your notice, either you or HVS may, as appropriate pursuant to this Section 18, commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in court. You and HVS agree that any arbitration or claim must be commenced or filed within one (1) year after the Dispute arose; otherwise, you and HVS agree that the claim is permanently barred (which means that you will no longer have the right to assert a claim regarding the Dispute). You and HVS agree that (i) any arbitration will occur in Cook County, Illinois, U.S.A.; (ii) arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of JAMS; and (iii) that the state or federal courts in the State of Illinois have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award and over any Dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration.
18.5. Authority of Arbitrator. As limited by the FAA, this Agreement and applicable JAMS rules, the arbitrator will have (a) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute, and (b) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court. The arbitrator may conduct only an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
18.6. Rules of JAMS. The rules of, and additional information about, JAMS are available on the JAMS website at http://www.jamsadr.com/, as may be updated from time to time. By agreeing to be bound by this Agreement, you either (a) acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the rules of JAMS or (b) waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason. 18.7. Severability. If any provision of this Section 18 is held invalid or unenforceable, it will be so held to the minimum extent required by law and all other provisions will remain valid and enforceable. Further, the waivers set forth in Section 18.2 are severable from the other provisions of this Agreement and will remain valid and enforceable except as prohibited by applicable law.
- Governing Law and Venue. This Agreement and your download and installation of, and access to, the Licensed Application and the Services will be governed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois, without reference to its choice of law rules. Each party irrevocably consents to the jurisdiction and venue of the federal and state courts located in Cook County, Illinois, U.S.A., with respect to any Dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration under this Agreement.
- Miscellaneous. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision will be deemed to be restated to reflect the original intention of the parties to the maximum extent possible and in accordance with applicable law, and the remaining provisions, terms, covenants, and restrictions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect. You may not assign this Agreement or any of your rights under this Agreement without the prior written consent of HVS, and any attempted assignment without such consent shall be void. Subject to the foregoing restriction, this Agreement will be fully binding upon, inure to the benefit of, and be enforceable by HVS and our respective successors and assigns. Any failure by HVS to insist upon or enforce performance by you of any of the provisions of this Agreement or to exercise any rights or remedies under this Agreement or otherwise by law will not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of any right to assert or rely upon the provision, right or remedy in that or any other instance; rather, the provision, right or remedy will be and shall remain in full force and effect.
