Governing Law & Disputes

US Users:

You agree that any dispute or claim arising out of your use of the Services, including any dispute or claim as to the application, enforceability, scope, or interpretation of these Terms or this agreement to arbitrate, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to these Terms.

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief, or statutory damages), and must follow these Terms.

Arbitration shall be administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS”), pursuant to the most-current JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures, and conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator. Arbitration will take place by phone or video conference, unless an in-person hearing is requested by either party. In that case, the hearing will take place in the state where you reside. To the extent this agreement to arbitrate conflicts with the JAMS Policy on Consumer Arbitrations Pursuant to Pre-Dispute Clauses Minimum Standards of Procedural Fairness (the “Minimum Standards”), the Minimum Standards in that regard will apply.

Disputes may also be referred to another arbitration organization if you and mindhelpa agree in writing, or to an arbitrator appointed pursuant to Section 5 of the Federal Arbitration Act.

You and mindhelpa each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, group, or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and mindhelpa each waive any right to a jury trial. You and mindhelpa also both agree that notwithstanding our agreement to only arbitrate disputes as stated above, you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.

If this arbitration provision is found to be null and void, then all disputes arising under the Terms between us will be subject to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in New York City, New York, and you and we hereby submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of these courts. You and mindhelpa agree that if for any reason a dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration: (1) you and mindhelpa waive any right to a jury trial; (2) the dispute will proceed solely on an individual, non-class, non-representative basis; and (3) neither you nor mindhelpa may be a class representative or class member or otherwise participate in any class, representative, consolidated, or private attorney general proceeding.

This agreement to arbitrate will not preclude you or mindhelpa from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration, including without limitation orders to stay a court action, compel arbitration or confirm an arbitral award, from a court of competent jurisdiction. Furthermore, this agreement to arbitrate will not preclude you or mindhelpa from (i) applying to the appropriate court of competent jurisdiction for a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, or other interim or conservatory relief, as necessary, or (ii) seeking relief in any state or federal court for disputes related to a violation or possible violation of mindhelpa’s intellectual property rights.
