15. Governing law and Dispute settlement; ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER—IMPORTANT—PLEASE REVIEW AS THIS AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH SNAPPY AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US. NO CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS OR ARBITRATIONS ARE ALLOWED UNDER THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. IN ADDITION, ARBITRATION PRECLUDES YOU FROM SUING IN COURT OR HAVING A JURY TRIAL.
These Terms shall be governed by, and interpreted in accordance with, the law of New York exclusive of its choice of law rules. Your conduct may also be subject to other local, state, and national laws. In the event of a dispute arising under or relating to these Terms, the Website, Services or any other products or services provided by us (each, a “Dispute”), such Dispute will be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). YOU AND WE AGREE THAT NEITHER YOU OR US HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE SUCH DISPUTE IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY, EXCEPT FOR SMALL CLAIMS DISPUTES IN WHICH YOU OR SNAPPY SEEK TO BRING AN INDIVIDUAL ACTION IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT LOCATED IN THE COUNTY OF YOUR BILLING ADDRESS OR DISPUTES IN WHICH SNAPPY SEEKS INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF FOR THE ALLEGED UNLAWFUL USE OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY. All Disputes will be resolved before a single, neutral arbitrator located in New York, New York, whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the FAA. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”) pursuant to its then current Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those rules, or, where appropriate, pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. All applicable JAMS’ rules and procedures are available at the JAMS website. Each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules. You acknowledge and agree that you either have read and understand the JAMS Rules or waive your opportunity to read the JAMS Rules and waive any claim that the JAMS Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
The arbitrator, Snappy, and you, will maintain the confidentiality of any arbitration proceedings, judgments and awards, including, but not limited to, all information gathered, prepared and presented for purposes of the arbitration or related to the dispute(s) therein. The arbitrator will have the authority to make appropriate rulings to safeguard confidentiality, unless the law provides to the contrary. The duty of confidentiality does not apply to the extent that disclosure is necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy or in connection with a judicial challenge to an arbitration award or its enforcement, or to the extent that disclosure is otherwise required by law or judicial decision.
You and Snappy agree that the state or federal courts of the State of New York and the United States sitting in the county of New York in the State of New York, have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals that are not subject to arbitration as set forth above and the enforcement of an arbitration award or in the event the agreement to arbitrate above is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute. You agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts sitting within the county of New York in the State of New York for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.
This clause shall not preclude the parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. The arbitration may be conducted pursuant to JAMS rules in person, through the submission of documents, or utilizing desk, phone or video conference proceedings where appropriate and permitted to mitigate costs of travel. You and Snappy may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay a proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. You and Snappy shall cooperate in good faith in the voluntary and informal exchange of all non-privileged documents and other information (including electronically stored information) relevant to the Dispute immediately after commencement of the arbitration. Nothing in these Terms will prevent Snappy from seeking injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction as necessary to protect Snappy’s proprietary interests. Any dispute between you and Snappy that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in state and federal courts sitting in the City of New York in the State of New York.
Any cause of action arising out of relating to the Website or Services against Snappy must be brought within one (1) year of the date such cause of action arose, otherwise, the claim is permanently barred, which means that you and Snappy will not have the right to assert the claim.
YOU AND SNAPPY AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE ARISING OR RELATED TO THE WEBSITE OR SERVICES AND ALL CLAIMS BROUGHT AGAINST THE OTHER MUST BE BROUGHT IN SUCH PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT SUCH RESTRICTION IS PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
In the event that any provision of these Terms is held to be unenforceable, such provision shall be replaced with an enforceable provision, which most closely achieves the effect of the original provision, and the remaining terms of these Terms shall remain in full force and effect.
Nothing in these Terms creates any agency, employment, joint venture, or partnership relationship between you and Snappy or authorizes you to act on behalf of Snappy.
We may assign our rights and obligations hereunder to any third party without prior notice. You shall not assign any of your rights or obligations hereunder, and any assignment in violation of the foregoing shall be void.
No waiver of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.
All provisions of these Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
