16. Governing Law and Forum Choice. These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the the laws of Taiwan, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. The exclusive jurisdiction for all Disputes (defined below) that you and Company are not required to arbitrate will be the courts located in Taiwan, and you and Company each waive any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
17. Dispute Resolution. Company believes that most disagreements can be resolved informally and efficiently by contacting Company’s customer support. If the dispute is not resolved through Company customer support, you and Company agree that any such dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to the Program or this Agreement (each, a “Claim”), shall be determined by binding arbitration or small claims court, instead of in courts of general jurisdiction, in accordance with the following (including the procedure to opt out of arbitration):
a. Arbitration: Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You agree that, by agreeing to these Terms, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision, and that you and Company are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms.
i. Opt-out. You may right to opt out of arbitration entirely and litigate any Claim if you provide us with written notice of your desire to do so by email at within thirty (30) days following the date you first agree to these Terms.
ii. Notice of Claim: If you elect to seek arbitration, you must first send to Company, by certified mail, a written Notice of your Claim ("Notice of Claim"). The Notice of Claim to Company should be addressed to: 11F., No.70-1, Sec. 1, Chengde Rd., Datong Dist., and should be prominently captioned “NOTICE OF CLAIM”. The Notice of Claim should include both the mailing address and email address you would like Company to use to contact you. If Company elects to seek arbitration, it will send, by certified mail, a written Notice of Claim to your billing address on file. A Notice of Claim, whether sent by you or by Company, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; (b) set forth the specific amount of damages or other relief sought ("Demand"); and (c) whether you reject any subsequent modification of the Dispute Resolution section by Company (see Section 17(a)(viii)).
iii. Arbitration Proceedings: If you and Company do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after the Notice of Claim is received, you or Company may commence an arbitration proceeding (or, alternatively, file a claim in small claims court). You may download or copy a form of notice and a form to initiate arbitration at www.adr.org. The arbitration will be governed by the Consumer or Commercial Arbitration Rules, as appropriate, of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") (collectively, the "AAA Rules"), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at www.adr.org. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration provision.
iv. Unless Company and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of either your residence or of the mailing address you provided in your Notice of Claim. If your claim is for U.S. $10,000 or less, Company agrees that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds U.S. $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
v. Injunctive and Declaratory Relief: Except as set forth in Section 17(b), the arbitrator shall determine all issues of liability on the merits of any claim asserted by you or Company, and may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. To the extent that you or Company prevail on a claim and seek public injunctive relief (that is, injunctive relief that has the primary purpose and effect of prohibiting unlawful acts that threaten future injury to the general public), the entitlement to and extent of such relief must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration. The parties agree that litigation of any issues of public injunctive relief shall be stayed pending the outcome of the merits of any individual claims in arbitration.
vi. Arbitration Fees: If your claim for damages does not exceed $10,000, Company will pay all fees imposed by the AAA to conduct the arbitration, including reimbursement of your initial filing fee, unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)). If your claim for damages exceeds $10,000, standard AAA Rules will govern the payment of all AAA fees, including filing, administration and arbitrator fees.
vii. Class Action Waiver: YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Company agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Dispute Resolution section shall be null and void.
viii. Modification of Dispute Resolution Section: Notwithstanding Section 3, if Company changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted this Agreement, and you have not otherwise affirmatively agreed to such changes, you may reject any such change by so stating within your Notice of Claim. By failing to reject any changes to this “Dispute Resolution” section in your Notice of Claim, you agree to resolve any Claim between you and Company in accordance with the terms of the Dispute Resolution section in effect as of the date of your Notice of Claim.
ix. Severability: With the exception of any of the provisions in Section 17(a)(vii) of this Agreement (Class Action Waiver), if an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction decides that any part of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Agreement shall still apply.
b. Small Claims Court: Notwithstanding Section 17(a), you may elect to litigate your Claim in small claims court if all the requirements of the small claims court are satisfied, including any limitations on jurisdiction and the amount at issue in the dispute. You agree to bring a Claim in small claims court in your county of residence.
18. General Terms.
a. Entire Agreement. These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Company and you regarding the Program, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Company and you regarding the Program. If any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable by an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Company’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null. Company may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
b. Notices. Any notices or other communications provided by Company under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Program Website. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
c. Waiver of Rights. Company’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Company. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
