7. Governing Law and Jurisdiction
a. Contact Us: Our goal is for you to be happy and satisfied with your use of the SlashNext Services. If you have a dispute with SlashNext, you agree to contact us at product.support@SlashNext.com and attempt, in good faith, to resolve the dispute with us informally. If a dispute is not resolved within 60 days of notice, you or SlashNext may bring a formal proceeding.
b. Arbitration: To the extent allowable under the laws of your jurisdiction, any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to the use of the SlashNext Services, these Terms, or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, shall be settled by binding arbitration in San Jose, California, under the Rules of Arbitration of the American Arbitration Association by an arbitrator or arbitrators appointed in accordance with those rules. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
c. Exception to Arbitration: Either party may bring a lawsuit in the federal or state courts of Santa Clara County, California solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Services or infringement of SlashNext’s intellectual property rights without first engaging in the informal dispute notice process described above.
d. Class Action Waiver: You and SlashNext agree that any arbitration will be limited to the dispute between SlashNext and you individually. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND SLASHNEXT ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and SlashNext otherwise agree, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then it shall be reformed to the extent necessary to make it enforceable, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall continue to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
e. Governing Law: These Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflicts of law provisions. Both parties consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts sitting in Santa Clara County, California for any actions not subject to arbitration and you and the Company agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.
8. General Matters
a. Severability: If any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be modified to the extent necessary to render it enforceable without losing its intent. If no such modification is possible, that provision will be severed from these Terms and these Terms will otherwise remain in full force and effect.
b. No Waiver: Our failure or delay to enforce a provision under these Terms is not a waiver of our right to do so in the future.
c. Assignment: These Terms and any rights and licenses that we grant to you may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned or transferred by SlashNext without restriction.
d. Entire Agreement: These Terms, together with the End User License Agreement entered into by and between SlashNext and the Employer constitute the entire agreement between you and SlashNext concerning the SlashNext Services. In the event of a conflict between the End User License Agreement and these Terms, the End User License Agreement controls. Where these Terms do apply, they supersede all prior or contemporaneous agreements between you and SlashNext.
e. Modification to Terms: SlashNext may modify these Terms from time to time in its sole and absolute discretion. You agree to be bound by any changes to these Terms if you continue to use the SlashNext Services.
