14. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IF YOU WISH TO OPT OUT OF THE REQUIREMENT OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.
(a) Arbitration. Bell Integrator and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims that arise from or relate to these Terms or the Neuton Service in any way, except for claims arising from bodily injury. THIS ARBITRATION IS MANDATORY AND NOT PERMISSIVE. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted.
This arbitration agreement does not preclude either of us from bringing an individualized action in small claims court. It also does not preclude either of us from seeking an individualized preliminary injunction or temporary restraining order, pending arbitration, in any court that has jurisdiction. Nor does this arbitration agreement bar you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. In addition, you or Bell Integrator may seek injunctive or other equitable relief to protect your or its trade secrets and intellectual property rights or to prevent loss or damage to its services in any court with competent jurisdiction.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE, LAW, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT WE ARE EACH (I) WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY; (II) WAIVING THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION; AND (III) WAIVING THE RIGHT TO CLAIM OR RECOVER PUNITIVE DAMAGES AGAINST THE OTHER. These Terms evidence a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision.
(b) Notice of Disputes. If either of us intends to seek arbitration of a dispute, that party must provide the other with notice in writing. The notice to Bell Integrator should be sent to: Bell Integrator, Inc., Attn: Legal Department, 1735 N 1st St #102, San Jose, CA 95112. Bell Integrator will send notice to you at the email and/or mailing addresses associated with your Account. Your notice to Bell Integrator must (i) provide your name, mailing address, and email address; (ii) describe the dispute; and (iii) state the relief you are requesting. If we are unable to reach an agreement to resolve the dispute within 60 days after the notice is received, you or we may commence arbitration.
(c) Arbitration Procedures. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org.
(d) The arbitration will be held in Santa Clara County, California; (ii) in any other location to which you and Bell Integrator both agree; or (iii) for claims of $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the hearing takes place in person, via phone or video conference or solely on the basis of submission of documents to the arbitrator. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration provision or the arbitrability of disputes are for the court to decide. The arbitrator may consider, but is not bound by, rulings in other arbitrations between Bell Integrator and Bell Integrator Users. The arbitrator can award the same individualized damages and relief that a court can award. Judgement on the award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction.
(e) Costs of Arbitration. For any non-frivolous claim that does not exceed $75,000, Bell Integrator will pay for the relevant arbitration fees. For any claim that exceeds $75,000, the allocation of the arbitration fees will be governed by the AAA Rules (unless the law of your state requires Bell Integrator to pay all such fees).
(f) No Class Arbitration. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST BELL INTEGRATOR ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED GROUP LITIGATION OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL PROCEEDING. Further, unless all affected parties agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or group proceeding. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court.
(g) 30-Day Opt-Out Period. If you do not wish to be bound by the arbitration and class-action waiver provisions in this Section 15, you must notify Bell Integrator in writing within 30 days of the date that you first accept these Terms (unless a longer period is required by applicable law). Your written notification must be mailed to Bell Integrator at the following address: Bell Integrator, Inc., Attn: Legal Department, 1735 N 1st St #102, San Jose, CA 95112. Subject to Section 15(h) below, if you do not notify Bell Integrator in accordance with this Section 15(g), you agree to be bound by the arbitration and class arbitration waiver provisions of these Terms, including such provisions in any Terms revised after the date of your first acceptance.
(h) Such notification must include: (a) your name, (b) your Bell Integrator account email address, (c) your mailing address and (d) a statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with Bell Integrator through arbitration. This notification affects these Terms only; if you previously entered into other arbitration agreements with Bell Integrator or enter into other such agreements in the future, your notification that you are opting out of the arbitration provision in these Terms shall not affect the other arbitration agreements between you and Bell Integrator.
(i) Future Changes to Arbitration Provision. If Bell Integrator makes any changes to the Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Section of these Terms (other than a change to the address at which Bell Integrator will receive notices of dispute, opt-out notices or rejections of future changes to the Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Section), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to Bell Integrator, Inc., Attn: Legal Department, 1735 N 1st St #102, San Jose, CA 95112. It is not necessary to send us a rejection of a future change to the Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Section of these Terms if you had properly opted out of the arbitration and group litigation waiver provisions in this Section 15 within the first 30 days after you first accepted these Terms. If you have not properly opted out of the arbitration and group litigation waiver provisions in this Section 15, by rejecting a future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this arbitration provision, as modified by any changes you did not reject.
The provisions of this Section shall survive the termination of these Terms.
You may delete your Account at any time, for any reason, by following the instructions at the following link: https://cloud.google.com/support/docs/close-account. You will still be responsible for all Fees for any then-active Subscription Service through the end of its term.
If you breach any of the provisions of these Terms, Bell Integrator, in its sole discretion, may terminate your access to the Neuton Service, and any account that you may have with the Neuton Service. Bell Integrator may, in its sole discretion, at any time and without advance notice or liability, terminate or restrict your access to all or any component of the Neuton Service, even if access continues to be allowed to others. Upon such termination or suspension, you must immediately discontinue use of the Neuton Service. Accessing the Neuton Service after such termination, suspension, or discontinuation shall constitute an act of trespass. We will not have any liability whatsoever to you for any termination of your rights under these Terms, including for termination of your Account or deletion of your Neuton Service Data. All of the Neuton Service Data shall be deleted immediately after the termination or deletion of your Account.
Upon any termination of these Terms or deletion of your Account for any reason, all provisions regarding indemnification, warranty, liability and limits thereon, and confidentiality and protection of proprietary rights and trade secrets, and any provisions which expressly or by their nature are required to survive such termination in order to achieve their purpose, shall so survive until it shall no longer be necessary for them to survive in order to achieve their purpose.
