- GOVERNING LAW AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION
- GOVERNING LAW
These Terms shall be governed and interpreted under the substantive laws of Gibraltar, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules which would cause the application of laws of any other jurisdiction.
- DISPUTE RESOLUTION
- BINDING ARBITRATION
All claims and disputes arising out of or in connection with the Terms, including any question regarding their existence, validity or termination, as well as access or use of the Website, the Content or the IP, or the use of any product or service provided by the Company or its affiliates, shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this arbitration agreement (the “Arbitration Agreement“).
This Arbitration Agreement applies to you and the Company, as well as to any of the Company’s directors, officers, employees, agents, affiliates, successors and assigns (each and all, as the case may be, referred to below as the Company), as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of products or services provided by the Company.
- NOTICE REQUIREMENT
Before either party may seek arbitration, the party must first send to the other party a written notice (the “Notice”) describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and the requested relief. A Notice to the Company must be sent to the address or e-mail address in Article 14 below.
After the Notice is received, you and the Company may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute informally. If you and the Company do not resolve the claim or dispute within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, either party may begin arbitration proceedings pursuant to the Terms, whereby you and the Company both undertake to keep confidential and not reveal to the arbitral tribunal the content or outcome of any informal dispute resolution proceedings, including the amount of any proposed settlement.
- ARBITRATION RULES AND PROCEEDINGS
Any claim or dispute arising out of or in connection with these Terms shall be settled by binding arbitration administered under and pursuant to the LCIA Rules, which can be found at https://www.lcia.org/Dispute_Resolution_Services/lcia-arbitration-rules-2020.aspx and which are deemed to be incorporated herein by reference.
The seat of the arbitration shall be London. The number of arbitrators shall be one. The language of the proceedings shall be English.
The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and the Company; any possibility for appeal to an appeals instance is hereby excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.
- WAIVER OF COURT PROCEEDINGS AND JURY TRIAL
THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE ANY APPLICABLE CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than rules applicable in a court and are subject to very limited review by a court.
In the event any litigation should arise between you and the Company in any court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award, to seek injunctive relief or otherwise, YOU AND THE COMPANY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.
- RESTRICTIONS; WAIVER OF CLASS ACTIONS
YOU AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION OR LITIGATION PROCEEDINGS UNDER THESE TERMS SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE DISPUTE BETWEEN THE PARTIES INDIVIDIUALLY, THAT ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES SHALL BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND THAT CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER USER.
All aspects of the arbitration proceedings, including but not limited to the award of the arbitrator and compliance therewith, shall be strictly confidential. The parties agree to maintain confidentiality unless otherwise required by applicable law. This paragraph shall not prevent a party from submitting to a court of law any information necessary to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek injunctive relief.
This Arbitration Agreement shall survive the termination of your relationship with the Company.
- Entire Agreement
These Terms constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you and us regarding access to and use of the Website as well as any and all other aspects set out herein.
- No Waiver
Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision.
If any part or provision of these Terms is, or is held to be, invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the other parts and provisions of these Terms will be unimpaired and shall continue in full force and effect. The invalid or unenforceable part or provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
- No Assignment
These Terms, and your rights and obligations herein, may not be assigned or otherwise transferred by you without the Company’s prior written consent. The Company may freely assign these Terms.
- No Partnership
There is no joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship created between you and us as a result of these Terms, access to or use of the Website or access to or use of any of the goods or services offered by the Company or its affiliates.
