15. Disputes and Governing Law
15.1. Arbitration. You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision, and that you and Plytix are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision will survive any termination of the Agreement and/or the termination of your Subscription Plan.
Each Party agrees to submit any and all disputes, claims, and controversies arising between the Parties to final and binding arbitration, which will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its rules then in effect. Any arbitration will be heard by three (3) independent and impartial arbitrators. Two arbitrators will be selected by the respective Parties, one by the claimant(s) and one by the respondent(s). The third arbitrator will be appointed by the two arbitrators (the ones chosen by both parties) or by the AAA if the two arbitrators cannot agree. The place of arbitration will be New York, New York. Arbitration proceedings shall be held in English. Any Party’s refusal or unreasonable delay to select an arbitrator will be considered a material breach of this Agreement. The arbitrators will have the authority to grant any equitable and legal remedies that would be available in any judicial proceeding intended to resolve a dispute. However, either Party is entitled to bring an action seeking injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction. The award determined in an arbitration will be final and non-appealable. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. Each of the Parties will keep the proceedings and any and all transcripts, documents, and all other non-public information produced or disclosed in connection with any arbitration confidential.
15.2. Matters Not Requiring Arbitration. However, the Parties agree that Plytix may bring suit in court for the following: (i) enjoin infringement or other misuses of intellectual property or other proprietary rights; or (ii) defense and indemnification as stated in this Agreement.
16.1. Publicity. Unless otherwise agreed upon, you grant us the right to use your company name and logo as a reference for marketing or promotional purposes on our website and in other public or private communications with our existing or potential customers, subject to your standard trademark usage guidelines as provided to us.
16.2. Choice of Law; Jurisdiction. Except as stated in the arbitration clause, the laws of the State of New York will govern all disputes arising out of or relating to the Service and the Agreement, regardless of conflict of laws rules. Except as stated in the arbitration clause, the state and federal courts located in the city of New York will have exclusive jurisdiction and venue over any dispute arising out of or relating to the Service and the Agreement.
16.3. Notice. We may give notice by means of electronic mail to Customer’s email address on record in Customer’s Account or by written communication sent by first-class mail or by courier service to Customer’s address on record in Customer’s Account. Such notice will be deemed to have been given upon the expiration of thirty-six (36) hours after mailing (if sent by first class mail) or sending by courier or twelve (12) hours after sending (if sent by email), or, if earlier, when received. Customers may give notice to Plytix by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Such notice will be deemed to have been given twelve (12) hours after sending, or, if earlier, when received. A Party may, by giving notice to the other Party, change its applicable address, email, or other contact information.
16.4. Severability. The Agreement will be enforced to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law. If any provision of the Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, the provision will be modified by the court and interpreted as best as possible to accomplish the goals of the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of the Agreement will remain in effect.
16.5. No Agency. No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and Plytix as a result of this Agreement or use of the Services. Plytix will be considered an independent contractor to you at all times.
16.6. No Waiver. Our failure to enforce any right or provision in this Agreement or any Subscription Plan will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing.
16.7. Compliance with Export Laws. The Platform may be subject to U.S. Export Control Laws and Regulations. Export laws are set up by the U.S. government to keep certain goods and services from reaching other countries, usually because of security concerns or trade agreements. None of the Platform may be downloaded or otherwise exported or re-exported in violation of U.S. Export Control Laws and Regulations and any other applicable export laws and regulations (collectively, “Export Control Laws”). Therefore, you agree that you won’t, directly or indirectly through a third party, allow the Platform to be accessed or generated from within, or distributed or sent to, any prohibited or embargoed country as mentioned in any Export Control Laws. In addition, you certify that neither you nor any person or entity you know to be directly involved with the use of the Services is designated on any U.S. government list of prohibited or restricted persons. You must notify Plytix immediately if there are any issues with these Export Control Laws.
16.8. Force Majeure. Neither Party will be liable by reason of any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations on account of events beyond the reasonable control of a party, which may include denial-of-service attacks, a failure by a third party hosting provider or utility provider, strikes, shortages, riots, fires, acts of God, war, terrorism, and governmental action. This does not include cases when the Customer doesn’t pay.
16.9. Assignment. You may not assign any of your rights under the Agreement to anyone else (with the exception of your affiliates). We may assign the Agreement and any of our rights and obligations hereunder to any other individual or entity at our discretion.
16.10. Entire Agreement. This Agreement, together with any applicable Subscription Plans, makes up the entire agreement between the Customer and Plytix. The Agreement supersedes all prior or current negotiations, discussions, or agreements—written or oral—between the Parties. In the event of a conflict between the terms and conditions of these Terms and those of a Master Hosted Services Agreement, the provisions of the Master Hosted Services Agreement will be used as a final decision. No amendment to or modification of this Agreement will be binding unless in writing and signed by an authorized representative of each Party.
