DISPUTE RESOLUTION; ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS CAREFULLY.
This Agreement includes an agreement to arbitrate claims and an agreement that all claims will be brought only in an individual capacity (and not as a class action or other representative proceeding). You may opt out of the arbitration agreement by following the opt-out procedure described below. You agree that in the event of any dispute between you and Menin, you will first contact us and make a good faith, sustained effort to resolve the dispute before resorting to more formal means of resolution, including without limitation: arbitration or any court action. Afterthe informal dispute resolution process any remaining dispute, controversy, or claim (each a “Claim”) relating in any way to your use of Website, or relating in any way to Menin’s communications with you, will be finally resolved by binding arbitration. This mandatory arbitration agreement applies equally to you and Menin. However, this arbitration agreement does not (a) govern any Claim by Menin for infringement of its intellectual property or access to the Website that are unauthorized or exceed authorization granted in these Terms or (b) bars you from making use of applicable small claims court procedures in appropriate cases. If you do not want to arbitrate disputes with Menin and you are an individual, you may opt out of this arbitration agreement by sending notice to the address provided below within thirty (30) days of the first of the date you access the Website or the date you receive any services.
CLASS ACTION WAIVER
Any Claim must be brought in the respective party’s individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, collective, representative, multiple plaintiff, or similar proceeding (“Class Action”). You expressly waive any ability to maintain any Class Action in any forum. If the Claim is subject to arbitration, the arbitrator shall not have authority to combine or aggregate similar claims or conduct any Class Action nor make an award to any person or entity not a party to the arbitration. Any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. The parties understand that any right to litigate in court, to have a judge or jury decide their case, or to be a party to a class or representative action, is waived, and that any claims must be decided individually, through arbitration. If this class action waiver is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of the arbitration agreement, if otherwise effective, shall be null and void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. If for any reason a Claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and Menin each waive any right to a jury trial.
GOVERNING LAW AND VENUE
The Services provided through the Website will be deemed as provided within the State of Florida. This Agreement is governed and interpreted pursuant to the laws of the State of Florida, notwithstanding any principles of conflicts of law. Any disputes in connection with these Terms that result in court action, in accordance with these Terms, will be resolved exclusively by a state 7 or federal court located in Miami-Dade County, Florida, and you specifically consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts and waive any claim of forum.
SEVERABILITY AND WAIVER
If any part of these Terms is unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. The failure of a party to require performance of any provision will not affect such party’s right to require performance at any time thereafter, nor shall a waiver of any breach or default of these Terms or any provision of these Terms constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms or any of your rights or obligations under these Terms. Menin may assign these Terms at any time without notice to you.
In no event shall Menin or any third party providers or distributors be liable for any injury, loss, claim, damage, or damages, including, but not limited to, any special, exemplary, punitive, indirect, incidental or consequential damages of any kind, whether based in contract, tort, strict liability, or otherwise, which arises out of interruptions of service caused by an act of God, terrorism, accident, fire, labor controversy, riot, civil commotion, act of public enemy, law, enactment, rule order, or act of any government or governmental instrumentality, failure of technical facilities, failure or delay of transportation facilities, illness or incapacity, or other cause of a similar or dissimilar nature not reasonably within the control of Menin or which Menincould not by reasonable diligence have avoided (each such act specified in this paragraph shall be referred to herein as a “Force Majeure Event”). Menin shall not be responsible for reimbursing any fees paid.
