Arbitration; Class Action and Jury Waiver (applicable for United States residents)
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS RIGHTS THAT YOU MAY OTHERWISE HAVE. IT PROVIDES FOR RESOLUTION OF MOST DISPUTES THROUGH ARBITRATION INSTEAD OF COURT TRIALS AND CLASS ACTIONS. ARBITRATION IS MORE INFORMAL THAN A LAWSUIT IN COURT, USES A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY, AND DISCOVERY IS MORE LIMITED. ARBITRATION IS FINAL AND BINDING AND SUBJECT TO ONLY VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT. THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE SHALL SURVIVE TERMINATION OF THE T&CS.
This provision is intended to be interpreted broadly to encompass all disputes, claims or controversies (regardless of legal theory or source of law issue) arising out of or relating to the T&Cs. Any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to the T&Cs (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, common law, or any other legal theory) will be resolved by binding arbitration, except that either you or OrCam may take claims to small claims court if the claims or demands qualify for hearing by such a court.
For all disputes, whether pursued in court or arbitration, you must first send a written description of your claim to OrCam at 1115 Broadway, 11th floor, New York, NY 10010 to allow OrCam an opportunity to work with you to resolve the dispute. You and OrCam each agree to negotiate your claim in good faith. You may request arbitration if your claim or dispute cannot be resolved within sixty (60) days.
The arbitration of any dispute or claim shall be conducted by, and in accordance with, the rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), including the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (as applicable), as modified by the T&Cs. The AAA Rules and information about arbitration and fees are available online at www.adr.org. You and OrCam agree that the T&Cs evidence a transaction in interstate commerce and that this arbitration provision will be interpreted and enforced in accordance with the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law and will not be governed by state law. Any arbitration will be held in Delaware or virtually, if mutually agreed. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language. There shall be three arbitrators selected from the AAA’s list of approved arbitrators, agreed to by the parties within thirty (30) days of receipt by respondent of the request for arbitration or, in default of such agreement, by the AAA. Each party shall bear the portion of any deposit, advance, or other expense as determined by the arbitrator.
You and OrCam agree that discovery will be limited to be cost-effective and proportionate to the claim, and that the cost of discovery shall be borne by the party requesting such discovery. Except as provided below, the arbitrators may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available in a court, including injunctive or declaratory relief to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim, and must follow and enforce the T&Cs as a court would. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the arbitrators shall have no authority to award punitive, consequential or liquidated damages of any kind. In all arbitrations, the arbitrator must give effect to applicable statutes of limitations.
The award rendered by the arbitrators shall be final, non-reviewable and binding on the parties. Any arbitration shall be confidential, and neither you nor OrCam may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction.
Class Action Waiver and Jury Waiver: You and OrCam each agree that any proceeding, whether in arbitration or in court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, or representative action. If a court or arbitrator determines in an action between you and OrCam that this class action waiver is unenforceable, the arbitration agreement will be void as to you. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, You and OrCam each waive any right to a jury trial and consent to the jurisdiction of the courts and laws of the State of Delaware.
