15. DISPUTE RESOLUTION; MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION.
Please read this Section carefully because it requires you to waive your right to a jury trial and arbitrate certain disputes and claims with Quil and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us. As set forth in this Section, no class or representative actions or arbitrations are allowed.
Except for Quil’s right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and Quil waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to this Agreement or the Services resolved in court. Instead, for any dispute that you have against Quil, you agree to first contact Quil and attempt to resolve the claim informally by sending a written notice of your claim (“Notice“) to Quil by email at email@example.com or by certified mail addressed to: 1900 Market Street, 6th Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19103. The Notice must (a) include your name, residence address, email address, and telephone number; (b) describe the nature and basis of the claim; and (c) set forth the specific relief sought. Any notice of a claim that Quil provides to you will be similar in form to that described above. If you and Quil cannot reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after such Notice is received, then either Party may, as appropriate in accordance with this Section, submit the dispute to binding arbitration administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS“). All submitted disputes will be resolved through confidential binding arbitration held in Philadelphia, PA in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“Rules“) of JAMS, which are available on the JAMS website and incorporated herein by this reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the Rules or waive the opportunity to read the Rules and any claim that the Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
You and Quil agree that any dispute arising out of or related to this Agreement or the Services is personal to you and Quil and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action, or any other type of representative action or proceeding.
You and Quil agree that this Agreement affects interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 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 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; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action or proceeding, which is prohibited by this Agreement. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative action or proceeding, or preside over any action or proceeding involving more than one individual.
The arbitrator, Quil, and you will maintain the confidentiality of any proceedings, including, but not limited to, any and 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 that confidentiality, unless the law provides to the contrary.
Any claim arising out of or related to this Agreement or the Services must be filed within one (1) year after such claim arose; otherwise, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the claim is permanently barred, which means that neither you nor Quil will have the right to assert the claim.
If any portion of this Section is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, (a) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from this Agreement; (b) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Section or the Parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Section.
16. GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION. These Terms, and all claims relating to or arising out of these Terms, whether sounding in contract, tort, or otherwise, shall be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, including Pennsylvania’s statutes of limitations governing your claim, without giving effect to its principles of conflicts of law.
17. NOTICES. Notices from one Party to the other shall be in writing and may be sent via email. You can notify Quil or send questions, complaints, or claims related to the Services to Quil by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Notices from Quil to you will be sent to the email address or mailing address provided by you as part of your user account.
