14.1 Governing Law and Venue. THE AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA WITHOUT REGARD TO CONFLICT OF LAW PRINCIPLES. THE PROPER VENUE FOR ANY DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO ANY OF THE SAME WILL BE THE STATE AND FEDERAL COURTS LOCATED IN THE COUNTY OF SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA.
14.2 Arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator, or panel of arbitrators, instead of a judge or jury. Court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. An arbitrator should apply the terms of the agreement as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except those issues relating to: (a) arbitrability, (b) the scope or enforceability of the agreement to arbitrate in this Dispute Resolution section, or (c) the interpretation of the paragraph entitled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief”, shall be for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide. Except for claims for injunctive or equitable relief or claims regarding intellectual property rights (which may be brought without the posting of a bond), any dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter of the Agreement shall be finally settled in San Francisco County, California, in English, in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service, Inc. (“JAMS”) then in effect, by one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving commercial contract disputes, who shall be selected from the appropriate list of JAMS arbitrators in accordance with such Rules. Judgment upon the award rendered by such arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing obligation to arbitrate disputes, each party shall have the right to pursue injunctive or other equitable relief at any time, from any court of competent jurisdiction.
14.3 Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief. YOU AND ASKMOS AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND ASKMOS AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’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 UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND ASKMOS ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
14.4 Copyright Infringement Complaint Procedures. If you believe that any Content on the Platform or in the Services violates your copyright or another party’s rights, please notify Mos’s copyright agent by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to Copyright Agent at 548 Market St #41673, San Francisco, California 94104. We prefer email. Your message must include the following information: (a) your name and the name of your company, if any; (b) your contact information, including your email address; (c) the nature and substance of your complaint, the specific rights at issue, and your basis for making the complaint, including the content or posting that is objectionable; and (d) the following statement: “The statements, representations, and assertions made in this message are true, complete, and accurate and I have the full legal authority to make each and every such statement, representation, and assertion and to make and be granted any demand made in this message.” Mos will respond to all such notices, including as required by removing the infringing material or disabling links to infringing material. Mos will terminate a user’s access to and use of the Platform if, under appropriate circumstances, the user is determined to be an infringer of the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of Mos or others.
15.1 International Users. The Services can be accessed from countries around the world and may contain references to Services and Content that are not available in your country. These references do not imply that Mos intends to announce such Services or Content in your country. The Services are controlled and offered by Mos from its facilities in the United States of America. Mos makes no representations that the Services are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Services from other countries do so at their own volition and are responsible for compliance with local law.
15.2 Changes to the Service. Mos continually strives to improve its products and services, and reserves the right to improve or modify the Service and its features in any manner and at any time, including during the Term, at its sole discretion, provided however that such modifications will not materially reduce the functionality of the Service to User.
15.3 Waiver. A party’s failure to require performance of any provision shall not affect its right to require performance at any time thereafter, nor shall a waiver of any breach or default constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default.
15.4 Interpretation. Use of paragraph headers in the Agreement is for convenience only and shall not have any impact on the interpretation of particular provisions. In the event that any part of the Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the unenforceable part shall be given effect to the greatest extent possible, and the remaining parts will remain in full force and effect.
15.5 Assignment. The Agreement, and your rights and obligations hereunder, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated or otherwise transferred by you without Mos’s prior written consent, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. Mos may freely assign this agreement.
15.6 Notices and Contact Information. Each party will send notices made pursuant to the Agreement in writing by postal delivery or a reputable international courier service, in either case with all postage and delivery fees pre-paid and a delivery confirmation required, to the address provided for such party on an applicable Plan Purchase Agreement, or to such updated address as the party provides by notice in accordance with this Section. Notice will be deemed given when received by the other party, or when delivery is refused. User questions or communications regarding Mos, the Service, or the Agreement can be sent to email@example.com but will not serve as notice under the Agreement.
15.7 Relationship Between the Parties. Nothing in the Agreement shall be construed as making either party the partner, joint venturer, agent, legal representative, employer, contractor, or employee of the other.
15.8 Force Majeure. To the extent caused by hurricane, earthquake, other natural disaster or act of God, terrorism, war, labor unrest, epidemic, pandemic, general failure of the Internet or of communications systems, or other forces beyond the performing party’s reasonable control (collectively, “Force Majeure”), no delay, failure, or default, other than User’s failure to make payments when due, will constitute a breach of the Agreement. The time for performance shall be extended for a period equal to the duration of the Force Majeure event. The performing party shall use reasonable efforts to minimize the delays, to notify the other party promptly, and to inform the other party of its plans to resume performance.
15.9 Injunctions. Each party agrees that breach of this Agreement would cause the injured irreparable injury for which monetary relief would not provide adequate compensation, and that in addition to any other remedies available, the injured party will be entitled to injunctive relief against such breach or threatened breach, without the necessity of proving actual damages or posting a bond or other security. This Section shall not be taken to limit either party’s right to injunctive relief related to breach of a section of the Agreement not listed in this Section.
15.10 Consumer Complaints. In accordance with California Civil Code §1789.3, you may report complaints to the Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs by contacting them in writing at 1625 North Market Blvd., Suite N 112, Sacramento, CA 95834, or by telephone at (800) 952-5210.
