Dispute resolution

Applicable law

These Terms and all related actions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Vorarlberg, Austria, excluding its conflict of law provisions.

Arbitration agreement

You and SAMINA agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services, Products or Content (collectively, "Disputes") shall be resolved by binding arbitration, except that each party shall continue to have the right: (i) bring an individual action [courts whose jurisdiction is limited to monetary claims in contract or tort up to a specified limit (between €200 and €1000) and for which counsel is not required]; and (ii) seek injunctive or other equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction, to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, violation or misappropriation of any copyright, trademark, trade secret, patent or other intellectual property right of any party (the action described in clause (ii) above being referred to as an "Intellectual Property Action"). Without limiting the foregoing sentence, you shall also have the right to pursue any other dispute in court if you notify SAMINA of such intention in writing by email to support@samina.io within thirty (30) days of the date you first agreed to these Terms (such notice shall be referred to as a "Notice to Oppose Arbitration"). If you do not provide SAMINA with such Notice to Object to Arbitration within the thirty (30) day period, you will be deemed to have knowingly and willfully waived your right to pursue any Dispute in court, except as otherwise expressly set forth in clauses (i) and (ii) above. The exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any intellectual property action or, if you provide SAMINA with a timely notice of objection to arbitration, the exclusive jurisdiction and venue shall be the state and federal courts located in Austria, and each party hereto hereby waives any objection to the jurisdiction of such courts and venue. Unless you timely provide SAMINA with a notice of objection to arbitration, you acknowledge and agree that you and SAMINA each waive the right to a jury trial or to participate as a plaintiff or class representative in any proceeding designated as a class action or representative proceeding. In addition, unless you and SAMINA otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims and may not otherwise preside over any type of class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is found to be unenforceable, the entire Dispute Resolution section shall be deemed null and void. Except as otherwise provided in the preceding sentence, this "Dispute Resolution" paragraph shall survive any termination of these Terms.

Arbitration rules

The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules then in effect and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the "AAA Rules"), except as otherwise provided in this Dispute Resolution Section. (The AAA Rules may be obtained at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at +1-800-778-7879). The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this section.

Arbitration

A party wishing to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration in accordance with the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form for a general Demand for Arbitration and a separate form for a Demand for Arbitration for California residents.) The arbitrator shall be either a retired judge or a licensed attorney and shall be selected by the parties from the AAA's list of arbitrators. If the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator within seven (7) days of service of the Request for Arbitration, the AAA shall appoint an arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.

Place and procedure of the arbitration

Unless you and SAMINA agree otherwise, the arbitration will be conducted in the district in which you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of the documents you and SAMINA submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing, or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing is determined by the AAA Rules. Pursuant to the AAA Rules, the arbitral tribunal has the discretion to arrange for an appropriate exchange of information between the parties consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.

Arbitration award

The arbitrator shall render a judgment within the time limits set forth in the AAA Rules. The award shall contain the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. The award may be submitted to any court having jurisdiction thereof for decision. The damages awarded by the arbitrator in the award shall be consistent with the provisions of the Limitation of Liability section above with respect to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may enter a declaratory judgment or grant injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and shall be limited to that which the claimant has requested in his or her corresponding individual action. If you win the arbitration, you will be entitled to reimbursement of your attorneys' fees and expenses to the extent provided under applicable law. SAMINA does not seek reimbursement of attorneys' fees and expenses and hereby waives any rights SAMINA may have under applicable law to recover attorneys' fees and expenses if SAMINA wins the arbitration.

Fees

Your obligation to pay AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees is determined solely by the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $20,000, SAMINA will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator determines that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your request for arbitration was without merit or was raised for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).

Changes

Notwithstanding the provisions of the "Changes to Terms of Use" section above, if SAMINA changes this "Dispute Resolution" section after the date you first agreed to these Terms (or agreed to any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such changes by providing written notice (including by email to feedback@samina.io ) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as shown above in the "Last Updated" section or in the date of the email from SAMINA to you notifying you of the change. By opting out of any changes, you agree that you will resolve any disputes between you and SAMINA by arbitration in accordance with the provisions of this "Dispute Resolution" section as of the date you first agreed to these Terms (or agreed to any subsequent changes to these Terms).

General conditions

These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between SAMINA and you with respect to the Services, Products and Content, and these Terms supersede and replace any prior oral or written agreements between SAMINA and you with respect to the Services, Products and Content. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid or unenforceable (either by an arbitrator determined in accordance with the terms of the "Arbitration" section above or by a court of competent jurisdiction, but only if you have timely objected to arbitration by submitting the Notice of Objection to Arbitration in accordance with the terms set forth above), such provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible, and the other provisions of these Terms shall remain in full force and effect.

You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without SAMINA's prior written consent. Any attempted assignment by you of these Terms without such consent shall be void and of no effect. SAMINA may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the parties, your successors and permitted assigns.

All notices or other communications from SAMINA under these Terms, including any such related amendments to these Terms, shall be made: (i) by SAMINA via email, or (ii) by posting on the Services. In the case of notices sent by email, the date of delivery shall be deemed to be the date on which such notice was given.

SAMINA's failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms and Conditions shall not be deemed a waiver of such right or provision. No waiver of any such right or provision shall be effective unless in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of SAMINA. Except as otherwise expressly provided in these Terms, any exercise by a party of its rights under these Terms shall be without prejudice to any other rights it may have under these Terms or otherwise.
