Except for any dispute relating to the enforcement or validity of your, our or either of our licensors’ intellectual property rights, if a claim arises between you and NOTARYACT the claim shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.
If you initiate a claim against NOTARYACT relating to this EULA you agree that your claim must be resolved exclusively by the processes set forth below. If you initiate any claim against NOTARYACT in any other manner, you shall be in violation of this EULA and you agree that NOTARYACT shall be entitled to have such action dismissed or otherwise terminated and you agree to reimburse NOTARYACT for its reasonable costs incurred in defending against such improperly initiated claim. You agree that, prior to initiating any formal proceedings against NOTARYACT, you will send a notice to our attorneys at firstname.lastname@example.org or by certified mail at the address provided below and state that you are providing a “Notice of Dispute.” Upon receipt of a Notice of Dispute, you and we shall attempt to resolve the dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the Notice of Dispute is sent. If the dispute remains unresolved, either you or we may initiate formal proceedings according to the following terms.
Our arbitration proceedings will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules and procedures applicable at that time, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Commercial Dispute Resolution Service Rules of Procedure (to the extent applicable) as modified by our Arbitration Agreement. You may review those rules and procedures, and obtain a form for initiating arbitration proceedings at the AAA’s website. The arbitration shall be held in Nassau County, New York or at another mutually agreed location. Either of us may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on us subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing. Attendance at an in-person hearing may be made by telephone by you and/or us, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.
The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrators shall not have the power to make an award that is inconsistent with the provisions of this EULA or New York substantive law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different NOTARYACT users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court possessing jurisdiction over the parties, except for a limited right of appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act.
The AAA rules will govern the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees, unless our Arbitration Agreement expressly provides otherwise. If the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration are frivolous, you agree to reimburse NOTARYACT for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by NOTARYACT.
YOU AND NOTARYACT AGREE, AS PART OF THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS PART OF ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. WE REFER TO THIS AS THE “PROHIBITION OF CLASS AND REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS.” UNLESS BOTH YOU AND WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN YOUR OR OUR CLAIM WITH ANOTHER PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY ONLY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER NOTARYACT USERS.
Except with respect to the Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions, if a court decides that any part of this Arbitration Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Arbitration Agreement shall continue to apply. If a court decides that the Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions is invalid or unenforceable, then the entire Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void. The remainder of the User Agreement and its Legal Disputes Section will continue to apply.
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary or the applicable dispute resolution process, any claim or cause of action you may have arising out of or related to use of the SOFTWARE or EULA must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or you hereby agree to be forever barred from bringing such claim.
NOTARYACT has the right to seek injunctive relief to enforce this EULA or to stop or prevent an infringement of intellectual property rights, other proprietary rights or other third-party rights.
You agree that any equitable actions for injunctive relief shall exclusively be resolved under the substantive law of the state of New York (exclusive of its choice of law provisions) by the state and federal courts located in Nassau County, New York .
