THE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN ACTIVBODY AND YOU.
You agree that any dispute between you and Activbody arising out of or relating to these Terms, the Activbody Services, or any other Activbody products, devices or services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be governed by the arbitration procedure outlined below.
Governing Law: These Terms and the resolution of any Disputes shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of laws principles.
Informal Dispute Resolution: We want to address your concerns without the need of a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against Activbody, you agree to try to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting email@example.com. We will try to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting you. If a dispute is not resolved within 30 days after submission, you or Activbody may bring a formal proceeding.
We Both Agree To Arbitrate: You and Activbody agree to resolve any Disputes through final and binding arbitration, except as set forth under Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate below.
Opt-out of Agreement to Arbitrate: You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of first accepting these Terms and stating that you (include your first and last name) decline this arbitration agreement.
Arbitration Procedures: The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in Orange County, California, or any other location we agree to.
Arbitration Fees: The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. Activbody will pay all arbitration fees for claims less than $25,000. Activbody will not seek its attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate: Either you or Activbody may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Orange County, California. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Activbody products, devices or the Activbody Services, or infringement of intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
No Class Actions: You may only resolve Disputes with Activbody on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren’t allowed under our agreement.
Judicial Forum for Disputes: In the event that the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you and Activbody agree that any judicial proceeding will be brought in the federal or state courts of Orange County, California. Both you and Activbody consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there. We both agree to waive our right to a jury trial.
Limitation on Claims: Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to your use of the Activbody devices or products or the Activbody Services must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, or else that claim or cause of action will be barred forever.
Except as otherwise stated herein, these Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Activbody and you regarding the Activbody Services, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Activbody and you regarding the Activbody Services and Activbody Content. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Activbody’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and void. Activbody may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications provided by Activbody under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Activbody Services at www.activbody.com and/or www.activ5.com. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt on the message will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
Activbody’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Activbody. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
Additional Terms May Apply
Additional terms may apply to certain Activbody devices, products or services. In the event that there is a conflict between these Terms and any additional terms, the additional terms will control.
