14. Governing Law; Dispute Resolution; Venue; Severability of Provisions
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU AND LOCKE BIO TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN US THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM LOCKE BIO.
Except for any disputes, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, demands or proceedings (collectively, “Disputes”) in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, YOU AND LOCKE BIO AGREE (A) TO WAIVE YOUR AND LOCKE BIO’S RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO HAVE ANY AND ALL DISPUTES ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS, OR THE SERVICES, RESOLVED IN A COURT, AND (B) TO WAIVE YOUR AND LOCKE BIO’S RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL. Instead, you and Locke Bio agree to arbitrate Disputes through binding arbitration (which is the referral of a dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it instead of having the dispute decided by a judge or jury in court) conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the arbitration rules in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (the “AAA Rules”) and under the rules set forth in these Terms. If there is a conflict between the AAA Rules and the rules set forth in these Terms, the rules set forth in these Terms will govern.
Unless the parties agree otherwise, the arbitration will be conducted in the City of San Francisco, California. Each party will be responsible for paying any filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with the AAA Rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL.
You and Locke Bio agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 14 shall be both substantively and procedurally governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
YOU AND LOCKE BIO EACH AGREE TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTES ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE ANY DISPUTES ON A CLASS OR CONSOLIDATED BASIS OR IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY.
YOU AGREE THAT REGARDLESS OF ANY STATUTE OR LAW TO THE CONTRARY, ANY DISPUTE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SERVICES OR ANY CONTENT MUST BE FILED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION AROSE, OR SUCH DISPUTE WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.
These Terms, and your access to and use of the Services shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of the State of Texas or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any Dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court, shall be resolved on an individual basis in the state or federal courts of the State of Texas and the United States, respectively, sitting in Travis County, Texas.
