17. ARBITRATION CLAUSE & CLASS ACTION WAIVER – IMPORTANT – PLEASE REVIEW AS THIS AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
a. ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION WAIVER. YOU AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND INVISION (WHETHER OR NOT SUCH DISPUTE INVOLVES A THIRD PARTY) WITH REGARD TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH INVISION, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DISPUTES RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, YOUR USE OF THE SOFTWARE, AND/OR RIGHTS OF PRIVACY AND/OR PUBLICITY, WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE STREAMLINED ARBITRATION RULES AND PROCEDURES OF JAMS THEN IN EFFECT, AND YOU AND INVISION HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT TO THE EXTENT THAT YOU HAVE IN ANY MANNER VIOLATED OR THREATENED TO VIOLATE INVISION’S INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS, INVISION MAY SEEK INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER APPROPRIATE RELIEF IN ANY STATE OR FEDERAL COURT IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK. DISCOVERY AND RIGHTS TO APPEAL IN ARBITRATION ARE GENERALLY MORE LIMITED THAN IN A LAWSUIT, AND OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU AND INVISION WOULD HAVE IN COURT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. AS AN ALTERNATIVE, INVISION MAY BRING YOUR CLAIM IN YOUR LOCAL "SMALL CLAIMS" COURT, IF PERMITTED BY THAT SMALL CLAIMS COURT'S RULES AND IF WITHIN SUCH COURT’S JURISDICTION, UNLESS SUCH ACTION IS TRANSFERRED, REMOVED OR APPEALED TO A DIFFERENT COURT. YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS ONLY ON YOUR OWN BEHALF. NEITHER YOU NOR INVISION WILL PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION FOR ANY CLAIMS COVERED BY THIS PRODUCT LICENSING AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE. YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST INVISION INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person's use of the Software, if InVision is a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and not by any state law concerning arbitration. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with this Agreement. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of, related to or connected with the use of theSoftware or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim of action arose or be forever banned.
b. 30-Day Opt-Out Period. If you do not wish to be bound by the arbitration and class-action waiver provisions in this Section 9, you must notify InVision in writing within 30 days of the date that you first accept this Agreement (unless a longer period is required by applicable law). Your written notification must be mailed to InVision at the InVision contact address listed above (“Notice Address”). If you do not notify InVision in accordance with this Section 9(b), you agree to be bound by the arbitration and class-action waiver provisions of this Agreement, including such provisions in any terms revised after the date of your first acceptance. Such notification must include: (i) your name; (ii) your user name; (iii) your mailing address and (iv) a statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with InVision through arbitration. If InVision makes any changes to the Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section of this Agreement (other than a change to the address at which InVision will receive notices of dispute, opt-out notices, or rejections of future changes to the Arbitration and Clause Action Waiver section), you may reject any such change by sending InVision written notice within 30 days of the change to the Notice Address. It is not necessary to send InVision a rejection of a future change to the Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section of this Agreement if you had properly opted out of the arbitration and class-action waiver provisions in this Section 9 within the first 30 days after you first accepted this Agreement. If you have not properly opted out of the arbitration and class-action waiver provisions in this Section 9, by rejecting a future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this arbitration provision, as modified by any changes you did not reject. This notification affects this Agreement only; if you previously entered into other arbitration agreements with InVision or enter into other such agreements in the future, your notification that you are opting out of the arbitration provision in this Agreement shall not affect the other arbitration agreements between you and InVision.
c. Severability. If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section will be null and void. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with InVision.
18. Open Source. The Software may contain or be distributed with open source software or other third-party software which may be covered by a different license. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, the obligations of InVision set forth in this Agreement do not extend to any open source software or such other third-party software which may be made available by InVision, or otherwise obtained or used by you. You agree that all open source software or such other third-party software shall be and shall remain subject to the terms and conditions under which it is provided, and you shall be responsible for compliance with such terms. To the fullest extent possible, InVision disclaims all warranties and liability regarding such open source and third-party software in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
19. Limitation of Claims. Any claim related to this Agreement or the Software must be brought within one year. The one-year period begins on the date when the claim first could be filed. If it is not filed, then that claim is permanently barred. This applies to you and your successors.
20. Minimum Age. You represent and warrant that you are at least 13 years of age. If you are under age 13, you may not, under any circumstances or for any reason, use the Software. InVision may, in InVision's sole discretion, refuse to offer the Software to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time. The right to access the Software is revoked where this Agreement or use of the Software is prohibited or to the extent offering or provision of the Software conflicts with any applicable law, rule or regulation.
21. Prohibited Transactions. InVision is generally prohibited from providing services to parties located in countries that are the target of U.S. sanctions administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of the Treasury (OFAC) and to parties that are included on U.S. sanctions lists (and in each case, applicable international equivalents thereof), and you represent and warrant that you are not such a party. InVision reserve’s the right to refuse transactions in compliance with sanctions administered by OFAC and its international equivalents.
22. MISCELLANEOUS. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the United States and the State of New York without regard to the conflicts of laws provisions thereof. InVision and Licensee hereby agree that the sole and exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any litigation arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the subject matter hereof shall be in an appropriate federal or state court in New York, New York, USA. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement. This Agreement together with any Documentation represents the complete agreement concerning this license between the parties and supersedes all prior agreements and representations between them with respect to the subject matter hereof. This Agreement may be amended only by a writing executed by duly authorized representatives of both parties. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any respect, such provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full effect and enforceable. The headings to the sections of this Agreement are used for convenience only and shall have no substantive meaning. Every exemption from liability, limitation and condition contained in this Agreement for the benefit of InVision and every defense and immunity applicable to InVision or to which InVision is entitled will also be available and extend to every parent company, subsidiary, affiliate, and licensor of InVision and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents and independent contractors. Licensee formally and irrevocably grants its consent to any assignment, substitution or any other legal action required to make the previous sentence fully enforceable. Neither the rights nor the obligations arising under this Agreement are assignable or transferable by Licensee, and any such attempted assignment or transfer shall be void and without effect. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective permitted successors and assigns. This Agreement is not intended to nor shall it be construed as a joint venture, association, partnership or other form of business or agency relationship. Any waivers shall be effective only if made in writing executed by duly authorized representatives of both parties. InVision’s failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver of such provision. In any action to enforce rights under this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover costs and attorneys’ fees. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that due to the unique nature of the Software, there can be no adequate remedy at law for any breach of its obligations hereunder, that any such breach may result in irreparable harm to InVision, and therefore, that upon any such breach or threat thereof, InVision shall be entitled to injunctions and other appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever remedies it may have at law.
23. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that it has read and understands this Agreement and that this Agreement has the same force and effect as a signed agreement.
