Arbitration and Class Action Waiver.

You agree that, except as otherwise provided herein, all disputes between You and and Spredfast (whether or not such dispute involves a third party) will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration under the American Arbitration Association’s rules for arbitration of consumer-related disputes and the parties hereby expressly waive trial by jury. As an alternative, You may bring a claim in Your local “small claims” court if permitted by that court’s rules. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek emergency injunctive relief by filing for such in accordance with the Governing Law and Venue section, below.  Further, You may bring claims only on your own behalf. Neither party may participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this Agreement. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person’s account, if Spredfast is a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. In the event the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred and sixty (160) days of filing the case, then either party may elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with this Agreement. You may opt out of this agreement to arbitrate. If You do opt out, neither party can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, You must notify Spredfast in writing within thirty (30) days of the date that You first became subject to this arbitration provision. You must use this address to opt out: Spredfast, Inc. ATTN: LEGAL – Arbitration Opt-Out, 200 W. Cesar Chavez, Austin, TX  78701. You must include your name, residence address, and a clear statement that You want to opt out of this arbitration agreement. If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties or arbitration clause contained above is found to be unenforceable or if You opt-out of arbitration then all of the preceding language in this section will be null and void and the Governing Law and Venue section, below, shall control. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of Your relationship with us.

 

Governing Law and Venue. This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Texas, without regard to its choice of law statutes. Any disputes must be brought in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas, located in Austin, Texas. If that U.S. District Court cannot hear the dispute, the dispute shall be brought before the State District Courts of Travis County located in Austin, Texas. The parties agree that venue and jurisdiction is proper in this court and agree not to contest notice from this court. The United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods is disclaimed. EACH PARTY WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO JURY TRIAL IN CONNECTION WITH ANY ACTION OR LITIGATION IN ANY WAY RISING OUT OF, OR RELATED TO, THIS AGREEMENT. The parties further agree that the pricing and terms of this Agreement were made in reliance upon agreement to this paragraph.

 

Miscellaneous

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between Spredfast and you concerning the subject matter hereof, and they may only be modified by a written amendment signed by an authorized executive of Spredfast, or by the posting by Spredfast of a revised version. If any part of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that part will be construed to reflect the parties’ original intent, and the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect. A waiver by either party of any term or condition of this Agreement or any breach thereof, in any one instance, will not waive such term or condition or any subsequent breach thereof. You may assign your rights under this Agreement to any party that consents to, and agrees to be bound by, its terms and conditions; Spredfast may assign its rights under this Agreement without condition. This Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
