Binding Individual Arbitration; No Class Actions
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
Dispute Resolution. Most issues can be resolved by contacting Narratize’s customer support at [.link]email@example.com[.link]. If an issue cannot be resolved through customer support, you and Narratize agree to resolve any such dispute as described herein, including (where applicable) by binding, individual arbitration. Arbitration is an alternative dispute-resolution procedure where the dispute is submitted to a neutral arbitrator (not a judge or jury) for fair and fast resolution.
If you have an issue that our customer support can’t resolve, prior to starting arbitration, you and Narratize agree to attempt to resolve the dispute informally. You and Narratize agree to make a good-faith effort to negotiate any dispute between us for at least 30 days (“Informal Resolution”). Those informal negotiations will start on the day you or Narratize receive a written notice of such dispute. You will send written notice of such dispute to [.link]firstname.lastname@example.org[.link]. Include your name, any relevant account name you use, address, how to contact you, what the problem is, and what you want Narratize to do. If Narratize has a dispute with you, Narratize will send our written notice to your registered email address. If the dispute isn’t resolved within by Informal Resolution or small-claims court, you or Narratize may start an arbitration in accordance with these Terms.
Disputes We Agree to Arbitrate
You and Narratize agree to submit all Disputes between you and Narratize to individual binding arbitration. “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy (except those specifically exempted below) between you and Narratize that relates to your use or attempted use of Narratize’s products or services and Narratize’s products and services generally, including without limitation the validity, enforceability, or scope of this Binding Individual Arbitration section. You and Narratize agree to arbitrate all Disputes regardless of whether the Dispute is based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence), or any other legal or equitable theory. The Informal Resolution and Arbitration sections do not apply to (1) individual actions in small-claims court; (2) pursuit of enforcement actions through a government agency if the law allows; (3) an action to compel or uphold any prior arbitration decision; (4) Narratize’s right to seek injunctive relief against You in a court of law to preserve the status quo while an arbitration proceeds; (5) claims of intellectual-property infringement; (6) claims for indemnification; and (7) the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below. You and Narratize agree that whether a dispute is subject to arbitration under these Terms will be determined by the arbitrator rather than a court.
The arbitrator (not a judge or jury) will resolve the Dispute. Unless you and Narratize agree otherwise, any decision or award will include a written statement stating the decision of each claim and the basis for the award, including the arbitrator’s essential factual and legal findings and conclusions. The arbitrator may only award legal or equitable remedies that are requested by you or Narratize to satisfy one of our individual claims (that the arbitrator determines are supported by credible relevant evidence). The arbitrator may not award relief against Narratize respecting any person other than you. Any decision or award may be enforced as a final judgment by any court of competent jurisdiction or, if applicable, application may be made to such court for judicial acceptance of any award and an order of enforcement. If you start the arbitration, you must pay any filing fees required for consumer arbitrations. These costs do not include your Attorneys’ fees and costs.
Class Action Waiver
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you and Narratize agree to only bring Disputes in an individual capacity and shall not:
ADDITIONAL ARBITRATION TERMS
If a Dispute must be arbitrated, you or Narratize must start arbitration of the Dispute within one (1) year from when the Dispute first arose. If applicable law requires you to bring a claim for a Dispute sooner than one year after the Dispute first arose, you must start arbitration in that earlier time period. Narratize encourages you to tell us about a Dispute as soon as possible so we can work to resolve it. The failure to provide timely notice shall bar all claims.
If all or any provision of this Binding Individual Arbitration agreement is found invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, then you and Narratize agree that the provision will be severed and the rest of these Terms shall remain in effect and be construed as if any severed provision had not been included. The sole exception is that if the Class Action Waiver is found invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, you and Narratize agree that it will not be severable; this entire Binding Individual Arbitration section will be void and unenforceable and any dispute will be resolved in court subject to the venue and choice of clauses specified in these Terms. Under no circumstances shall arbitration be conducted on a class basis without Narratize’s express consent.
This Binding Individual Arbitration section survives any termination of these Terms or Narratize’s provision of services to you.
Although Narratize may revise these Terms in its discretion, Narratize does not have the right to alter these Terms to arbitrate or the rules specified herein with respect to any Dispute once that Dispute arises.
