You and Acclaro agree that any judicial proceeding to resolve claims relating to these Terms or the Services will be brought in the federal or state courts of Irvington, New York, subject to the mandatory arbitration provisions below. Both you and Acclaro consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in such courts.
IF YOU’RE A U.S. RESIDENT, YOU ALSO AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISIONS:
You and Acclaro agree to resolve any claims relating to this UA or the Services through final and binding arbitration, except as set forth under Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate below.
The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, Irvington (NY), or any other location we agree to.
The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. Acclaro will pay all arbitration fees for claims less than $75,000. If you receive an arbitration award that is more favorable than any offer we make to resolve the claim, we will pay you $1,000 in addition to the award. Acclaro will not seek its attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous.
Either you or Acclaro may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Irvington (NY) or any United States county where you live or work. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Services, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above. If the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in Irvington, NY to resolve your claim.
NO CLASS ACTIONS. You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren't allowed.
This UA will be governed by New York law except for its conflicts of laws principles, unless otherwise required by a mandatory law of any other jurisdiction.
This UA constitutes the entire agreement between you and Acclaro with respect to the subject matter of this UA, and supersede and replace any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of this UA. This UA creates no third party beneficiary rights.
Waiver, Severability & Assignment
Acclaro’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this UA will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under this UA, and any such attempt will be void. Acclaro may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.
We may revise this UA from time to time, and will always post the most current version on our website. If a revision meaningfully reduces your rights, we will notify you (by, for example, sending a message to the email address associated with your account, posting on our blog or on this page). By continuing to use or access the Services after the revisions come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised UA.
