Note to International Users
We make no representations that the Service is appropriate or available for use in locations outside of the United States. Those who access or use the Service from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including but not limited to export and import regulations. You may not use the Service if you are a resident of a country embargoed by the United States, or are a foreign person or entity blocked or denied by the United States government. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, all Service are solely directed to individuals, companies, or other entities located in the United States.
You agree that: (i) the Service will be deemed solely based in the State of Washington, USA; and (ii) the Service will be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over any of the Released Parties, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than Washington. These Terms will be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Washington, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in King County, Washington for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of Intellectual Property Rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below.
If you are a federal, state, or local government entity in the United States using the Service in your official capacity and legally unable to accept the controlling law, jurisdiction or venue clauses above, then those clauses do not apply to you. For such U.S. federal government entities, these Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the United States of America (without reference to conflict of laws) and, in the absence of federal law and to the extent permitted under federal law, the laws of the State of Washington (excluding choice of law).
READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF UNDER THESE TERMS.
In the unlikely event that we have not been able to resolve a dispute with you after 60 days following notice of the dispute, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims we may bring for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms, or the breach or alleged breach thereof, including without limitation federal and state statutory claims, common law claims, and those based in contract, tort, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration in accordance with and subject to the consumer arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) by one arbitrator (except that you may assert claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis). The arbitration will be conducted in King County, Washington, unless we agree otherwise. Each party will be responsible for paying any filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator will include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees for prevailing parties and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or we may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election will be binding on you and us subject to the discretion of the arbitrator to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. In cases where an in-person hearing is held, you and/or we may attend by telephone, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise. Any settlement offer made by you or us, or the content of any settlement discussions between us, will not be disclosed to the arbitrator.
The arbitrator(s) will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable law, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator will not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Users, but is/are bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same User to the extent required by applicable law. The award of the arbitrator will be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Nothing in this Section will be deemed as preventing us from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to protect any of our or our third-party partners’ or suppliers’ proprietary interests.
Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief
ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER USERS.
YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND KONNECTONE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.
You acknowledge and agree that each of the Released Parties (and their successors and assigns) are intended third-party beneficiaries of these Terms and that, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of these Terms, each Released Party will have the express right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms against you. Furthermore, each Released Party will enjoy the same benefits as does KonnectONE with respect these Terms as a third-party beneficiary thereof, including but not limited to those terms pertaining to disclaimers, waivers, limitations of liability and indemnification. Except as expressly stated herein, there are no other third-party beneficiaries to these Terms.
The following applies to any Applications you acquire from the iTunes Store (“iTunes-Sourced Software”):
You acknowledge and agree that Apple, and Apple's subsidiaries, are third-party beneficiaries of these Terms as relates to your license of the iTunes-Sourced Software, and that, upon your acceptance of these Terms, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms as relates to your license of the iTunes-Sourced Software against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof.
Unenforceable provisions will be modified to reflect the parties' intention and only to the extent necessary to make them enforceable, and the remaining provisions of the Agreement will remain in full effect.
Notices to KonnectONE must be sent via first class, airmail, or overnight courier and are deemed given when received. Notices to you may be sent to the applicable Account email address or via SMS or push notification and are deemed given when sent. Notices to KonnectONE must be sent to KonnectONE LLC, attn. Legal Department, 40 Lake Bellevue Drive, Suite 350, Bellevue, WA 98005
A waiver of any default is not a waiver of any subsequent default.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms or any rights or obligations under these Terms without the written consent of KonnectONE. KonnectONE may assign these Terms, any of its rights and delegate any of its duties to any party at any time without providing notice to you. Any other attempt to transfer or assign is void.
