Let's Try To Work It Out. Ideally, if You have any concerns or complaint against PowerDot, We would like to resolve the issue without resorting to formal court or arbitration proceedings. Therefore, before filing a claim against PowerDot, You agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting email@example.com. PowerDot will attempt to resolve the dispute informally (and will contact You via email). If a dispute is not resolved within 15 days of submission, You may bring a formal proceeding.
Arbitration. Any disputes that are not settled informally shall be settled by binding arbitration in accordance with the rules and procedures of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service, Inc. ("JAMS"). The arbitrator shall be selected by joint agreement between You and PowerDot. In the event the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator within thirty (30) days of the initiating party providing the other party with written notice that it plans to seek arbitration, the parties shall each select an arbitrator affiliated with JAMS, which arbitrators shall jointly select a third such arbitrator to resolve the dispute. The written decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties and enforceable in any court. The arbitration proceeding shall take place in San Diego, California using the English language. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring claims for equitable or injunctive relief before a court (see the "General" section below) at any time.
Opt-out of Agreement to Arbitrate. You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by notifying PowerDot in writing within 30 days of the date that You first become bound by this Agreement. Your opt-out request must be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
You must include Your name and residence address, the email address You use for Your Service account, and a clear statement that You want to opt-out of this arbitration agreement.
No Class Actions. You may only resolve disputes with PowerDot on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren't allowed. This paragraph will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law.
Going to Court. Subject to the arbitration provision above, You agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue for all disputes arising in connection with this Agreement shall be in the state and Federal courts located in San Diego, California. You hereby submit to such jurisdiction and venue.
The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. PowerDot shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond PowerDot' reasonable control. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. This Agreement is not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by You except with PowerDot's prior written consent. PowerDot may transfer, assign or delegate this Agreement and its rights and obligations without consent. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of California, as if made within California between two residents thereof. Both parties agree that this Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, and that all modifications must be in a writing signed by both parties, except as otherwise provided herein.
