17 Dispute Resolution
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO SUBMIT TO BINDING ARBITRATION (JURY TRIAL WAIVER) OF ANY AND ALL DISPUTES (OTHER THAN SPECIFIED INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY CLAIMS) WITH DRAYCIR AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM DRAYCIR (NO CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS OR ARBITRATIONS).
17.1 Binding Arbitration; Disputes; Small Claims. You and Draycir agree to waive any right to a jury trial, or the right to have any Dispute resolved in any court, and instead accept the use of binding arbitration (which is the referral of a Dispute (as such term is defined below) to one or more impartial persons for a final and binding determination). “Dispute” as used in this Section 17 means any dispute, cause of action, claim, or controversy arising out of or in any way related to Draycir, these Terms, the subject matter of these Terms, or access to and use of the Services, including but not limited to contract, personal injury, tort, warranty, statute or regulation, or other legal or equitable basis and disputes that involve third-parties (such as developers of Third-Party Content), except any dispute, cause of action, claim, or controversy relating to Draycir’s intellectual property (such as patents, trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and/or patents). You and Draycir empower the arbitrator with the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability or enforceability of these Terms or formation of this contract, including the arbitrability of any dispute and any claim that all or any part of these terms are void or voidable.
17.2 No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions. You and Draycir agree that any Dispute is personal to you and Draycir, and that any Dispute shall only be resolved by an individual arbitration and shall not be brought as a class arbitration, a class action, or any other representative proceeding. Neither party agrees to class arbitration, or an arbitration where a person brings a Dispute as a representative of any other person or persons. Neither you nor Draycir agrees that a Dispute can be brought as a class or representative action whether inside or outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other person or persons.
17.3 Federal Arbitration Act. You and Draycir agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of Section 16 shall be governed by, construed, and enforced, both substantively and procedurally, by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (“FAA”) to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
17.4 Confidentiality. The arbitrator, Draycir, and you shall maintain the confidentiality of any proceedings, including but not limited to, any and all information gathered, prepared, and presented for purposes of the arbitration or related to the Dispute(s) therein. The arbitrator shall have the authority to make appropriate rulings to safeguard that confidentiality, unless the law provides to the contrary.
17.5 Process. Our goal is to resolve claims fairly and quickly. Accordingly, for any Dispute that you have against Draycir, you agree to first contact Draycir and attempt to resolve the claim informally by sending a written notice of your claim (“Notice”) to Draycir. The Notice to Draycir must be sent by certified mail addressed to: Draycir Ltd, Regent House, 80 Regent Road, Leicester, LE1 7HE, United Kingdom. The Notice must (a) include your name, residence address, and the email address and/or mobile telephone number associated with your account; (b) describe the nature and basis of the claim; and (c) set forth the specific relief sought. If you and Draycir cannot reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after such Notice is received, then either party may, as appropriate in accordance with this Section 16, commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in court. You and Draycir agree that any Dispute must be commenced or filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, the Dispute is permanently barred.
17.6 AAA Arbitration. In the event that you and Draycir cannot resolve a Dispute, you or Draycir shall promptly submit the Dispute to binding arbitration at the office of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). In the event AAA declines or is unable to administer the arbitration, you and Draycir agree to use an arbitration forum or arbitrator that you and Draycir mutually agree upon. If, after making a reasonable effort, you and Draycir are not able to agree upon an arbitration forum or arbitrator, AAA or a court having proper jurisdiction will appoint an arbitration forum or arbitrator. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the applicable AAA Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”) then in effect. The AAA Rules and other information about AAA and arbitration are readily available at http://www.adr.org, by calling 1-800-778-7879, or by mail at 120 Broadway, Floor 21, New York, NY 10271. By entering into these Terms, you either (1) acknowledge that you have read and understand the AAA Rules or (2) waive reading the AAA Rules and waive any claim that the AAA Rules are unfair in any way. You and Draycir agree that these Terms govern the arbitration, and that the applicable AAA Rules shall be subject to changes in procedures that AAA may make from time to time. The arbitration proceedings shall be held in New York City, New York.
17.7 Individual Arbitration. As limited by the FAA, these Terms, and the applicable AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the exclusive power and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions concerning the Dispute; provided, however, that this power does not include the power to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms (as stated above). The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not preside over any form of representative or class proceeding, or any proceeding on behalf of or involving more than one person or persons.
18.1 Term. These Terms shall remain in effect until the earlier of the end of any relevant Subscription Period or as terminated as set forth herein. Your failure to comply with the Terms or failure to make any payment in a timely manner shall terminate the licenses granted herein and these Terms. In connection with such a termination, we may immediately (temporarily or permanently) limit, suspend or otherwise terminate, your Account, your password and your access to the Services without notice. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, we may terminate or suspend your Account if we believe in our sole discretion that any of the following events occurred: (a) there is a threat to the security or integrity of your Account, our network or our servers; (b) suspension or termination is needed to protect the rights (including without limitation, privacy rights), property or safety of the Draycir, its customers, patients or the public; (c) we have reasonable grounds to suspect that you do not meet the eligibility requirements specified in Section 1.1 above; (d) you have violated any of these Terms; and/or (e) we are required to do so by applicable law.
18.2 Rejecting Terms. If these Terms are materially modified during the Subscription Period, you may terminate these Terms by closing your Account within five (5) business days of such modifications, uninstalling our Application and stopping your use of our Services and this will be your sole remedy in such circumstances. Refunds will be issued with respect to any unutilized Subscription Period.
18.3 Effect of Termination. Upon termination of these Terms: (i) the license and all other rights granted to you hereunder will automatically terminate; (ii) you must immediately cease all use of the Services, delete and destroy all copies of any Software and Content in your possession or control (and to certify such action to Draycir, if required by it), and (ii) the provisions of these Terms that, by their nature and content must survive the termination of these Terms in order to achieve the fundamental purposes of these Terms shall so survive.
