10. Dispute Resolution and Mandatory Arbitration
10.1 Informal Dispute Resolution
In the event of any disputes or claim arising out of or relating to the Terms, both parties agree to use their reasonable efforts to settle any dispute, claim or disagreement, arising out of or relating to the Terms, directly through consultation and good faith negotiations (“Informal Dispute Resolution”), which shall be a condition to either party initiating any formal legal claims.
If the parties do not reach an agreed resolution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time Informal Dispute Resolution is initiated, then either party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve the claims subject to the terms set forth below.
10.2 Mandatory Arbitration
You and LeadIQ hereby agree that any dispute, claim, or disagreement arising out of relating to the Terms and the Services will be settled in binding arbitration between you and LeadIQ, and not in a court of law. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this obligation to arbitrate.
The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules and procedures available at www.adr.org (“Rules”). Arbitration shall be conducted by one (1) arbitrator as selected pursuant to the Rules. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. Each party shall be responsible for their own arbitration fees and costs.
Arbitration shall be initiated and take place in Santa Clara, California. If the relief sought is less than US $10,000, then either party may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted on the basis of documents provided to the arbitrator or through a telephonic hearing, subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing.
10.3 Class Action Waiver
You and LeadIQ agree that any proceedings to resolve or litigate any dispute whether through a court of law or arbitration shall be solely conducted on an individual basis. You agree that you will not seek to have any dispute heard as a class action, representative action, collective action, or private attorney general action.
This section 10 shall survive the termination of the Terms and your use of the Services.
11. General Provisions
You may, from time to time, provide suggestions, comments, corrections, ideas, enhancement or feature requests or other information (collectively “Feedback”) to LeadIQ with respect to the Services. You grant to us a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free license to use and incorporate into the Services any Feedback provided by you relating to the operation of the Services.
Neither party may transfer or assign its rights or obligations under the Terms to any third party without the prior written approval of the other party, except for an assignment to an affiliated company or to a successor in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of substantially all of its assets or voting securities.
All notices under the Terms shall be in writing and be deemed to have been given upon: (i) personal delivery, (ii) two (2) business days after mailing or depositing with a nationally recognized courier, or (iii) immediately upon delivery by electronic mail. Notices to LeadIQ shall be addressed to LeadIQ, Inc, Attn: CEO; 548 Market Street, PMB 20371, San Francisco, CA 94104, USA.
11.4 Governing Law
Notwithstanding you and LeadIQ’s agreement to mandatory arbitration at section 10.2, either party may seek any interim or preliminary injunctive relief from a court of competent jurisdiction in Santa Clara, California, as necessary to protect the party's rights or property pending the completion of arbitration. You and LeadIQ hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of, and venue in, any federal or state court of competent jurisdiction located in Santa Clara, California.
11.5 Force Majeure
Except for your payment obligations, neither party shall be liable for any delay or failure in performance of to the extent caused by a condition, such as natural disaster, an act of war or terrorism, acts of God, riot, labor condition, governmental action, Internet disturbance, or acts undertaken by third parties, including without limitation, denial of service attack that was beyond the party's reasonable control.
If any provision of the Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, the provision will be deemed null and void, and the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in effect.
No failure or delay by either party in exercising any right under the Terms will constitute a waiver of that right.
11.8 Entire Agreement
Except as expressly agreed to in writing by us, the Terms constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the Services, and supersede all previous or contemporaneous agreements, whether written or oral, between the parties. In the event you execute an MSA with us and there is any conflict or inconsistency with the Terms, the order of precedence shall be: (1) the MSA, and (2) these Terms.
11.9 Export Controls
You are responsible for complying with United States export controls and for any violation of such controls, including any United States embargoes or other federal rules and regulations restricting exports. You represent, warrant and covenant that you are not (a) located in, or a resident or a national of, any country subject to a U.S. government embargo or other restriction, or that has been designated by the U.S. government as a “terrorist supporting” country; or (b) on any of the U.S. government lists of restricted end users.
