XII. GENERAL TERMS
Governing Law; Arbitration; Class Action Waiver; Jurisdiction and Venue
These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas applicable to agreements made and entirely performed within Texas, without resort to its conflicts of law provisions or any other rule or interpretation that would result in the application of the laws of another jurisdiction.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OPT OUT OF THE ARBITRATION TERMS PROVIDED BELOW IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE OPT OUT SECTION BELOW.
The term “Dispute” means any dispute, claim or controversy between you and us or our officers, directors, employees or agents, that arises out of these Terms, or the use of the Qubika Site, regardless of legal theory, and includes claims that accrued before the date you entered into these Terms as well as claims relating to the interpretation, validity, enforcement or scope of the Agreement to arbitrate disputes contained in this section. The term “Dispute” is to be interpreted in the broadest sense allowed by law. The only disputes excluded from this broad provision are intellectual property claims and claims by us for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below.
Regardless of how, when or where you access the Qubika Site, by agreeing to these Terms, you agree to resolve any and all disputes with us as follows:
Initial Dispute Resolution. Most disputes can be resolved without resort to arbitration or litigation. You can reach us by sending us a message via https://qubika.com/#contact-anchor or by regular mail at Qubika LLC, Attention: Legal Department, 1141 Shady Lane, Suite 305, Austin, Texas 78721. Except for intellectual property claims and claims by us seeking injunctive or other equitable relief requiring immediate action, the parties agree to use their best efforts to resolve all disputes in good faith negotiations between them, which both agree is a precondition to either initiating an arbitration or lawsuit.
Binding Arbitration. Unless you opt out of arbitration in accordance with the terms provided above, if we cannot resolve the Dispute with you within thirty (30) days of when we start informal Dispute resolution, then you and we agree that the Dispute shall be resolved exclusively by binding arbitration which may be begun by either you or us. The arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules then in effect except as modified by these Terms, and excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class or representative actions. Said rules are posted at https://adr.org/sites/default/files/Commercial%20Rules.pdf. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all such disputes and has the power to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be written and shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Opt-Out of Arbitration. You may opt out of the binding arbitration described in this section by sending us written notice that you are opting out of binding arbitration (an “Arbitration Opt-Out Notice”) by email at [firstname.lastname@example.org] or regular mail at Qubika LLC, Attention: Legal Department, 1141 Shady Lane, Suite 305, Austin, Texas 78721 within thirty (30) days following the date you first agree to these Terms. If you don’t provide us with an Arbitration Opt-Out Notice within such thirty (30) day period, you will be deemed to have knowingly and intentionally waived your right to litigate any Dispute except with regard to the exceptions noted in the “Exceptions” section below. Any Arbitration Opt-Out Notice received after such thirty (30) day period shall not be valid or enforceable.
In the event that you provide to us a timely Arbitration Opt-Out Notice or the arbitration terms of these Terms are held not to be applicable, then you and we agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any Dispute will be the state or federal courts located in Austin, Texas and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts. In such event, you and we further waive the right to a jury trial.
Starting an Arbitration. To start an arbitration, you must do the following: (a) write a Demand for Arbitration that includes a description of the claim and the amount of damages you seek to recover (you may find a copy of a Demand for Arbitration at www.adr.org); (b) send three copies of the Demand for Arbitration, plus the appropriate filing fee, to the American Arbitration Association (see www.adr.org for the applicable address, or for online filing); and (c) send one copy of the Demand for Arbitration to us at Qubika LLC, Attention: Legal Department, 1141 Shady Lane, Suite 305, Austin, Texas 78721.
You and we each understand that, absent the arbitration provision in this section, each has the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. You also acknowledge that unless you opt out of arbitration in accordance with the opt-out terms provided above, you are giving up the right to a jury trial and understand that the costs of arbitration and right to pre-trial discovery is more limited than many courts permit. The parties will either select one mutually acceptable arbitrator or, if the parties do not agree to a single arbitrator, each party shall select one arbitrator and the two arbitrators selected by the parties shall select a third arbitrator, and the arbitration shall be held before the three arbitrators, and shall be decided by vote of the three arbitrators with a vote of the majority of the arbitrators required for a decision. UNLESS YOU OPT OUT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE OPT-OUT TERMS PROVIDED ABOVE, YOU AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DISPUTES RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR THE SERVICES AND ANY OTHER CLAIM OR DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND US, EXCEPT FOR THE EXCEPTIONS SPECIFIED BELOW WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AS PROVIDED HEREIN. UNLESS YOU PROVIDE AN ARBITRATION OPT-OUT NOTICE TO US IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE OPT-OUT TERMS PROVIDED ABOVE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND WE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE CLAIMS (OTHER THAN THOSE NOTED IN THE EXCEPTIONS BELOW) THROUGH A COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY. THE PARTIES HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY WAIVE THEIR RIGHTS TO LITIGATE SUCH CLAIMS IN A COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY UPON ELECTION OF ARBITRATION BY ANY PARTY.
Location of Arbitration. You and we both agree that arbitration between us and you shall take place in Austin, Texas.
Class Action Waiver. You and we agree that any and all arbitrations shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and you and we expressly waive the right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis or any other representative basis. Unless consented to in writing by all parties to the arbitration, no party to the arbitration may join, consolidate, or otherwise bring claims for or on behalf of two or more individuals or unrelated corporate entities in the same arbitration unless those persons are parties to a single transaction. Unless consented to in writing by all parties to the arbitration, an award in arbitration shall determine the rights and obligations of such parties only, and only with respect to the claims in arbitration, and shall not (a) determine the rights, obligations, or interests of anyone other than all parties to the arbitration, or resolve any Dispute of anyone other than any such party; nor (b) make an award for the benefit of, or against, anyone other than any such party. No administrator or arbitrator shall have the power or authority to waive, modify, or fail to enforce this specific paragraph, and any attempt to do so, whether by rule, policy, arbitration decision or otherwise, shall be invalid and unenforceable. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, EVEN IF THE DISPUTE OR DISPUTES THAT ARE THE SUBJECT OF THE ARBITRATION HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN ASSERTED (OR COULD HAVE BEEN ASSERTED) IN A COURT AS CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE ACTIONS IN A COURT.
If any court or arbitrator determines that the arbitration, jury trial waiver or class action waiver provisions of these Terms are void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provisions set forth above shall be deemed null and void in their entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
Litigation of Intellectual Property Claims and Claims By Us Seeking Injunctive or Other Equitable Relief. We may bring enforcement actions, validity determinations or claims arising from or relating to theft, piracy or unauthorized use of intellectual property, and claims for injunctive or other equitable relief in the state or federal courts located in Austin, Texas, and you consent to such venue and personal jurisdiction therein for any such proceedings and waive any claim, argument or defense that such courts constitute an improper or inconvenient venue for such proceedings.
Survival. This arbitration and class action waiver section will not be affected by any termination of your use of the Qubika Site and will survive termination of the relationship between you and us.
Revisions to the Terms
We reserve the right to revise the Terms at our sole discretion at any time. Any revisions to the Terms will be effective immediately upon posting on the Qubika Site or other notification to you. Your continued use of the Qubika Site after publication of such changes, constitutes binding acceptance of the revised Terms. Where reasonably practicable we will provide notice of any change in material Terms.
Any products, services, offers or promotions offered by Qubika are void where prohibited by law. If any provision of the Terms is found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed to be severed from the rest of these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. The provision held to be unlawful, void or unenforceable shall be modified if possible to the extent necessary to become enforceable and the modified provision shall be deemed to form part of these Terms from inception without further action being required. No waiver, express or implied, by either party of any breach of or default under these Terms will constitute a continuing waiver of such breach or default or be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. No waiver shall be valid unless given in writing signed by us or posted by us on the Qubika Site in an update to these Terms. Our failure to insist upon or enforce your strict compliance with these Terms will not constitute a waiver of any of our rights.
We will not be liable for any failure or delay in our performance under these Terms or any other obligation due to any cause beyond our reasonable control, including act of war, acts of God, earthquake, storms or other weather or natural events, embargo, riot, sabotage, terrorism, epidemic, pandemic, labor shortage or dispute or other industrial disturbances, systemic electrical, telecommunications network issues, or other utility failures, governmental act or failure of the Internet.
