11. Dispute Resolution; BindingArbitration; Governing Law
Please read the following Section 11 carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with Inworld and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us, unless you opt out of arbitration by following the instructions set forth below. No class or representative actions or arbitrations are allowed under this arbitration provision.In addition, arbitration precludes you from suing in court or having a jury trial.
11.1. No Representative Actions. You and Inworld agree that any dispute arising out of or related to this Agreement or the SDK is personal to you and Inworld and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual action, and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.
11.2. Arbitration of Disputes. Except for disputes in which you or Inworld seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged infringement, violation or misappropriation of intellectual property, you and Inworld waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to this Agreement or the SDK, including claims related to privacy and data security, (collectively, “Disputes”) resolved in court. Instead, for any Dispute that you have against Inworld you agree to first contact Inworld and attempt to resolve the claim informally by sending a written notice of your claim (“Notice”) to Inworld by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by certified mail addressed to 800 W El Camino Real Suite 180, Mountain View, CA 94040. The Notice must: (a) include your name, residence address, email address, and telephone number; (b) describe the nature and basis of the Dispute; and (c) set forth the specific relief sought. Our notice to you will be similar in form to that described above. If you and Inworld cannot reach an agreement to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after such Notice is received, then either party may submit the Dispute to binding arbitration administered by JAMS or, under the limited circumstances set forth above, in court. All Disputes submitted to JAMS will be resolved through confidential, binding arbitration before one arbitrator. Arbitration proceedings will be held in San Francisco, California unless you are a consumer, in which case you may elect to hold the arbitration in your county of residence. For purposes of this Section 11, a “consumer” means a person using the SDK for personal, family or household purposes. You and Inworld agree that Disputes will be held in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“JAMS Rules”). The most recent version of the JAMS Rules are available on the JAMS website and are hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you 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.
11.3. Federal Arbitration Act. You and Inworld agree that this Agreement affects interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 11 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq.(the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, this Agreement and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any Dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court, including the power to determine the question of arbitrability. The arbitrator may conduct only an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
11.4. Discovery. The arbitration will allow for the discovery or exchange of non-privileged information relevant to the Dispute. The arbitrator, Inworld, and you will maintain the confidentiality of any arbitration proceedings, judgments and awards, including 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.
11.5. Arbitration Filing Fee and Enforcement. You and Inworld agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee (up to a maximum of $250 if you are a consumer), and Inworld will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Inworld, Inworld will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and Inworld agree that the state or federal courts for San Francisco, California have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
11.6. Time to File. Any Dispute must be filed within one year after the relevant claim arose; otherwise, the Dispute is permanently barred, which means that you and Inworld will not have the right to assert the claim.
11.7. Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 11 by sending an email to email@example.com. In order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and address and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with this Section 11.
11.8. Enforceability. If any portion of this Section 11 is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason: (a) the unenforceable or unlawful provision will be severed from this Agreement; (b) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision will have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Section 11 or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Section 11; and (c) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims will be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Further, if any part of this Section 11 is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking public injunctive relief, that provision will have no effect to the extent such relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this Section 11 will be enforceable.
11.9. Governing Law. Any dispute arising from this Agreement and your use of the SDK will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of California, except to the extent preempted by U.S. federal law, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of California or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in the state or federal courts of California and the United States for San Francisco, California. You and Inworld waive any objection to venue in any such courts. If your local law requires that consumer contracts be interpreted subject to local law and enforced in the courts of that jurisdiction, this section may not apply to you only to the extent that local law conflicts with this section.
12. General Legal Terms
12.1. Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the whole legal agreement between you and Inworld with respect to the subject matter herein and governs your use of the SDK (excluding any services which Inworld may provide to you under a separate written agreement), and completely replaces any prior agreements between you and Inworld in relation to the SDK.
12.2. Waiver. If Inworld does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in this Agreement (or which Inworld has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of Inworld’s rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to Inworld.
12.3. Severability. If any provision (or any part thereof) of this Agreement is unenforceable under or prohibited by any present or future law, then such provision (or part thereof) will be amended, and is hereby amended, so as to be in compliance with such law, while preserving to the maximum extent possible the intent of the original provision.
