If you do not agree to the modified terms for the Service, you should discontinue your use of the Service.
- Process. Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution and Notification. YOU, ANY APPLICABLE COMPANY, VNDLY, and VNDLY Parties (the “Parties”) agree that good-faith informal efforts to resolve disputes often can result in a prompt, low-cost, and mutually beneficial outcome. The Parties therefore agree that, before either party demands arbitration against the other, we will meet and confer in writing in a good-faith effort to resolve informally any claim covered by this Arbitration Agreement. YOU AGREE TO CONTACT US WITH DISPUTES BY CONTACTING US AT VNDLY, 4900 PARKWAY DRIVE STE 125, MASON OH 45040, USA.
- IF YOU AND VNDLY CANNOT RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE 30 DAYS AFTER VNDLY ACKNOWLEDGES RECEIPT OF THE DISPUTE, THE PARTY SEEKING TO PURSUE A CLAIM WILL SUBMIT THE CLAIM TO ARBITRATION CONSISTENT WITH THIS SECTION. THE PARTIES UNDERSTAND THAT THEY WOULD HAVE HAD A RIGHT OR OPPORTUNITY TO LITIGATE DISPUTES THROUGH A COURT AND TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE THEIR CASE, BUT THEY CHOOSE TO HAVE ANY DISPUTES RESOLVED THROUGH ARBITRATION.
- ANY CLAIM OR DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND VNDLY, AND ANY CLAIM BY EITHER AGAINST ANY AGENT, EMPLOYEE, SUCCESSOR, OR ASSIGN OF THE OTHER, INCLUDING THIRD PARTIES, WHETHER RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE CLAIMS AND DISPUTES, AND INCLUDING ANY DISPUTE AS TO THE INTERPRETATION, ENFORCEABILITY, VALIDITY OR APPLICABILITY OF THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE, SHALL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION ADMINISTERED BY THE JAMS UNDER ITS RULES AND PROCEDURES IN EFFECT WHEN THE CLAIM IS FILED. THE RULES AND PROCEDURES AND OTHER INFORMATION, INCLUDING INFORMATION ON FEES, MAY BE OBTAINED FROM JAMS' WEBSITE (WWW.JAMSADR.COM). An arbitrator shall also have exclusive authority to resolve all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether the Terms are applicable, unconscionable, or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including without limitation waiver, delay, laches, or estoppel. However, only a court of competent jurisdiction, and not an arbitrator, shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any and all disputes arising out of or relating to the Class Action Waiver.
- EITHER YOU OR VNDLY MAY BRING APPLICABLE CLAIMS IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT.
- NOTHING IN THIS SECTION 18 WILL LIMIT VNDLY’S ABILITY TO SEEK EQUITABLE RELIEF IN ANY COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION.
- Class Action Waiver. By agreeing to the Terms, you agree that you are required to resolve any claim that you may have against VNDLY on an individual basis in arbitration as set forth in this Arbitration Agreement, and not as a class, collective, coordinated, consolidated, mass and/or representative action. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, YOU AND VNDLY EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE A DISPUTE ON A CLASSWIDE BASIS, INCLUDING BY JOINING A CLAIM WITH THE CLAIM OF ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY OR TO ASSERT A CLAIM IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF ANYONE ELSE IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION OR PROCEEDING. IF ANY COURT OR ARBITRATOR DETERMINES THAT THIS CLASSWIDE RESTRICTION IS UNCONSCIONABLE OR UNENFORCEABLE, THEN OUR AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE DOES NOT APPLY AND THE CLASSWIDE DISPUTE MUST BE BROUGHT IN COURT.
- Jury Trial Waiver. TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, YOU AND VNDLY EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING.
- Governing Law; Venue. These Terms and the use of the Service will be governed by Ohio law without regard for its conflict of laws principles. For any claims not subject to the arbitration provisions of these Terms, all claims arising out of relating to these Terms or the Service, except as set forth in the Terms, must be litigated either in a federal court of the Southern District of Ohio or a state court located in Hamilton County, Ohio, and you and VNDLY consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.
- No Third-Party Beneficiaries or Partnership. These Terms do not create any third-party beneficiary rights or a joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship. For the avoidance of doubt, neither Party has the power or authority to, and no Party may, assume or create any obligation or responsibility on behalf of the other.
- Force Majeure. VNDLY will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes beyond its reasonable control or unforeseen circumstances, such as acts of nature, fire, flood, earthquake, accidents, strikes, war, terrorism, quarantines or other governmental acts, failure of common carriers (including without limitation internet service providers and web hosting providers), or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor, or materials.
- Complete Agreement. These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive agreement between you and VNDLY with respect to the Service, and supersede and replace any other agreements, terms and conditions applicable to the Service. The headers for these Terms are for convenience only and will not affect the interpretation of these Terms.
- Severability. If a provision of these Terms is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect, and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in effect.
- Assignment. VNDLY may assign any of its rights under these Terms to an affiliate or to any successor in interest to the business of VNDLY. You may not assign your rights, in whole or in part, under these Terms and any such purported assignment is void and of no legal force or effect.
- Waiver of Terms. Any provision of this Agreement may be waived, terminated, or discharged with VNDLY's express consent at any time and in its sole discretion. The failure of VNDLY to insist upon the performance of any of the terms or conditions contained in this Agreement and/or to exercise any right hereunder, may not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of the future performance of any such term or condition or the future exercise of such rights. The failure of VNDLY to enforce these Terms for any period of time does not constitute a waiver of its right to enforce these Terms.
