All disputes arising in connection with the present Terms shall be resolved through negotiations.
You and We (the "parties") undertake to make all reasonable attempts to resolve any disagreement, claim, dispute, or issue directly via consultation and good faith negotiations, which shall be a condition precedent to any party commencing arbitration. If You have any questions or issues about our Services, You may contact Us at the email address email@example.com. The majority of issues are promptly resolved in this way to the satisfaction of Our customers.
If the parties are unable to achieve an agreement within 3 (three) months after initiating informal dispute resolution as described above, any party may begin binding arbitration as the exclusive way of resolving all claims and disputes between them, according to the terms set out below.
If We are unable to settle our dispute informally via customer support, You and Mobisharks oy agree to resolve any claim or dispute through final and binding arbitration to the maximum extent authorized by law. You and We agree that the arbitrator shall have the sole authority to resolve any dispute between us concerning the interpretation, relevance, or enforceability of the terms or forming of this Terms, including whether any dispute between us is subject to arbitration under this Terms and whether all or any part of this Terms is void or voidable. You acknowledge and agree that by accepting this Terms, both You and Mobisharks oy are waiving the right to a jury trial and to participate in a lawsuit.
The American Arbitration Association ("AAA") shall handle the arbitration in accordance with its then-current Commercial Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures (the "AAA Rules"). You may have the access to the AAA Rules at https://www.adr.org/arbitration
. The arbitrator will apply California state law in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act and any relevant limitation restrictions. This Terms will bind to the arbitrator.
A party seeking to commence arbitration shall submit a written demand for Arbitration to the other party, as stipulated in the AAA Rules at https://www.adr.org/arbitration
. The number of arbitrators shall be one. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or a qualified attorney, chosen by the parties from the AAA's panel of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator within 10 (ten) business days of the demand for Arbitration being delivered, the AAA will appoint the arbitrator pursuant to the AAA Rules.
Each and every arbitration under this Section required to take place in person will be conducted in accordance with the AAA Rules, which provide that face-to-face proceedings take place in a location that is reasonably convenient for both parties, taking into account their ability to travel and other relevant circumstances. The arbitrator, subject to the AAA Rules, shall have the ability to require the parties to exchange reasonable information compatible with the rapid nature of the arbitration.
The arbitrator will issue an arbitral award in accordance with the AAA Rules. The arbitrator's judgment will contain the arbitrator's principal findings and conclusions upon which the award is based. Any court with jurisdiction over the arbitral award may enter judgment on it. The arbitrator may provide declaratory or injunctive relief solely in the claimant's favor and only to the amount required to satisfy the claimant's specific claim.
Each party is responsible for paying the arbitration filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees, which are specified in the AAA Rules.
If either We or You retain attorneys to enforce any rights arising out of or relating to this Terms, the prevailing party in any such dispute will be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys' fees, costs, and other expenses related with the consideration of the claim between Us and You that arose under this Terms, subject to any contrary determination by arbitration.
The defeated party shall compensate the prevailing party for all costs, charges, and other expenses incurred in connection with the consideration of the arbitration proceedings between Us and You that occurred under this Terms.
If the arbitrator decides that any provision of this Terms is unlawful, invalid, or unenforceable, the other terms shall continue to be valid and enforceable. 9. Force-majeure
If We or You are unable to perform the present Terms in whole or in part as a result of events beyond each other's reasonable control (including, but not limited to, acts of God, war, strikes or labor disputes, economic sanctions, state orders, or any other force-majeure incident), such party shall be relieved of all or some of its obligations under this Terms in light of the effect of the force-majeure.
The party affected by force majeure shall inform the other party promptly and make all reasonable efforts to resume the performance of its duties under this Terms. The commitments that were not fulfilled because of the force-majeure event shall be fulfilled as soon as possible once the force-majeure event has ended.
Failure to inform shall deprive the notifying party of the ability to use force-majeure as a reason for absolving it of liability for non-performance of obligations under this Terms.
The party alleging force-majeure events should provide the other party with an official document confirming their existence. These documents should be issued by the party's authorized official body that relates to the force-majeure events. 10. Termination
