Governing Law and Jurisdiction
This Agreement and all matters relating to the Service shall be governed by Estonian law. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to any of the foregoing.
Any dispute arising from or otherwise concerning this Agreement (including disputes concerning the formation or validity hereof), or relating to the Service, shall be settled by mutual negotiations or by binding arbitration. In all other cases, the disputes shall be settled by Estonian courts, Harju County Court (in Estonian: Harju Maakohus) in Tallinn. Each Party, and anyone who uses, accesses or attempts to use or access any part of the Services, hereby irrevocably submits to the said jurisdiction and waives any and all objections they may have thereto.
18.2. Any decision (order, judgment or other) that the Harju County Court may deliver in a Parties’ dispute or in connection with the Service shall be enforceable in all jurisdictions.
Agreement to Arbitrate
Please read the following paragraphs carefully, as they require you to arbitrate disputes with Synctuition, and limit the manner in which you can seek relief from Synctuition.
(a) Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. All disputes arising out of, relating to, or in connection with these Terms or your use of the Services, Products and Content that cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court will be resolved through binding arbitration on an individual basis, except that you and Synctuition are not required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents.
(b) Arbitration Rules. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this dispute-resolution provision. Arbitration will be initiated through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). If the AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. The rules of the arbitral forum will govern all aspects of this arbitration, except to the extent those rules conflict with these Terms. The AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”) governing the arbitration are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration will be conducted by a single neutral arbitrator.
If the claim is for $10,000 or less, the party initiating the arbitration may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted (1) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (2) through a non-appearance based telephonic hearing; or (3) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county of your billing address. In the case of an in-person hearing, the proceedings will be conducted at a location which is reasonably convenient for both parties with due consideration of the ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination will be made by the arbitration institution.
Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation will be limited to those fees set forth in the AAA Rules with the remainder paid by Synctuition. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the arbitration is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse Synctuition for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under 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 decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
(c) Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator will decide the jurisdiction of the arbitrator and the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Synctuition. The dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator will have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim or dispute. The arbitrator will have the authority to award all remedies available under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and the Terms. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and Synctuition.
(d) Jury Trial Waiver. You and Synctuition waive any constitutional and statutory rights to go to court and have a trial in front of a judge or a jury. Rather, you and Synctuition elect to have claims and disputes resolved by arbitration. In any litigation between you and Synctuition over whether to vacate or enforce an arbitration award, you and Synctuition waive all rights to a jury trial, and elect instead to have the dispute be resolved by a judge.
(e) Class Action Waiver. Where permitted under the applicable law, you and Synctuition agree that each may bring claims against the other only in your or our individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or consolidated action. If, however, this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither you nor Synctuition are entitled to arbitration; instead all claims and disputes will be resolved in a court as set forth in the section “Governing Law and Jurisdiction” above.
(f) Opt-out. YOU MAY OPT-OUT OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. If you do so, neither you nor Synctuition can force the other to arbitrate. To opt-out, you must notify Synctuition in writing by registered mail no later than 30 days after first becoming subject to this arbitration agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, and the email address you used to set up your Synctuition account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt-out of this arbitration agreement. You must send your opt-out notice to one of the following physical or email addresses: Synctuition OÜ, Tornimäe 7-131, Tallinn 10145, Estonia; email@example.com
(g) Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or Synctuition may bring an individual action in small claims court.
(h) Arbitration Agreement Survival. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Synctuition.
These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Synctuition and you regarding the Services, Products and Content, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Synctuition and you regarding the Services, Products and Content. If any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable (either by an arbitrator appointed pursuant to the terms of the “Arbitration” section above or by court of competent jurisdiction, but only if you timely opt out of arbitration by sending us an Arbitration Opt-out Notice in accordance with the terms set forth above), 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 Synctuition’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. Synctuition 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.
Any notices or other communications provided by Synctuition under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (a) by Synctuition via email; or (b) by posting to the Services. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
If you have any questions about these Terms or the Services or Products, please contact Synctuition at firstname.lastname@example.org
