Except if you opt-out or for disputes relating to: (1) your or Habla’s Intellectual Property Rights and (2) violations of provisions of the Terms of Service, above (“Excluded Disputes”), you agree that all disputes between you and Habla (whether or not such dispute involves a third party) with regard to your relationship with Habla, including without limitation disputes related to the Terms of Service, your use of the Services, and/or rights of privacy and/or publicity, will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration under the American Arbitration Association’s rules for arbitration of consumer-related disputes and you and Habla hereby expressly waive trial by jury. As an alternative, you may bring your claim in your local “small claims” court, if permitted by that small claims court’s rules. You may bring claims only on your own behalf.
Neither you nor Habla will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by these Terms of Service. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person’s account, if Habla is a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. In the event the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred and sixty (160) days of filing the case, then either Habla or you can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. 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 the Terms of Service.
You may opt out of this agreement to arbitrate. If you do so, neither you nor Habla can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, you must notify Habla in writing within 30 days of the date that you first became subject to this arbitration provision. You must use this address to opt out: Habla Incorporated, ATTN: Arbitration, 205 ½ N Main St., Ann Arbor, MI 48104.
You must include your name and residence address, the email address you use for your Habla account, and a clear statement that you want to opt out of this arbitration agreement. 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 section will be null and void.
This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Habla. You agree that any claim you may have arising out of or related to your relationship with Habla must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, your claim is permanently barred.
Termination and Survival
Either party may terminate the Terms of Service for any or no cause, at any time. You may cancel the Services and delete your Account at any time by either using the features of the Services to do so (if applicable and available) or by written notice to email@example.com. After cancellation, you will no longer have access to your Account, your profile or any other information through the Services. The provisions of these Terms of Service which by their intent or meaning intended to survive such termination, including without limitation the provisions relating to disclaimer of warranties, limitations of liability, and indemnification, shall survive the any termination of the Terms of Service and any termination of your use of or subscription to the Services and shall continue to apply indefinitely.
If any provision of the Terms of Service is found by a court or other binding authority to be invalid, you agree that every attempt shall be made to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in that provision, and the remaining provisions contained in the Terms of Service shall continue in full force and effect.
The Terms of Service and the resolution of any dispute related to the Terms of Service or the Services shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of California without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law.
For any action at law or in equity relating to the arbitration provision of the Terms of Service, the Excluded Disputes or if you opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, you agree any legal action or proceeding between Habla and you relating to the Terms of Service or the Services shall be brought exclusively in a court of competent jurisdiction sitting in San Francisco, California, United States, and you agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of such courts.
The Services are controlled and operated from its facilities in the United States. Habla makes no representations that the Services are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Services from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with all applicable United States and local laws and regulations, including but not limited to export and import regulations. You may not use the Services if you are a resident of a country embargoed by the United States, or are a foreign person or entity blocked or denied by the United States government. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, all materials found on the Services are solely directed to individuals, companies, or other entities located in the United States.
No waiver of any term of these Terms of Service shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Habla’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
If you have any questions or concerns with respect to the Terms of Service or the Services you may contact a representative of Habla at firstname.lastname@example.org.
