AlphaTheta Corporation has a policy not to accept any proposals, remarks, suggestions, ideas, materials or other information concerning AlphaTheta Corporation's products and services (hereinafter collectively referred to as Proposals). In the event that you submit such Proposals to AlphaTheta Corporation, such submission of Proposals shall be deemed as your acceptance of the following terms:
(a) If You are a resident of any EU member state, this Agreement is governed by and will be construed according to English law. If you are a resident of the United States, this Agreement is governed by and will be construed according to California law. If you are resident of any territory outside the United States or the EU, this Agreement is governed by and will be construed in accordance with the laws of Japan. To the extent that any lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted under this Agreement, you and AlphaTheta Corporation agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the following for the purpose of litigating all such disputes: (i) the courts of London, if you are a resident of an EU member state; (ii) the state courts and federal courts located within Los Angeles County, California if you are a resident of the U.S.; and (iii) the courts of Tokyo, Japan, if you reside elsewhere.
(b) In the interest of resolving disputes between you and AlphaTheta Corporation in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and AlphaTheta Corporation agree that any and all disputes arising in connection with this Agreement shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Our agreement to arbitrate disputes includes, but is not limited to all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of this Agreement, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether the claims arise during or after the termination of this Agreement. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND ALPHATHETA CORPORATION ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, UNLESS SUCH WAIVER IS INVALID UNDER APPLICABLE LAW. YOU AND ALPHATHETA CORPORATION AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and AlphaTheta Corporation agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
(i) Arbitration Agreement. If you are a resident of any EU member state: The Parties can choose to finally settle all claims, arising out of, relating to, or connected with this Agreement (including its formation, interpretation, applicability, enforceability, performance and breach) by binding arbitration. If parties agree to settle claims by arbitration, such arbitration shall be conducted under the arbitration rules of the International Chamber of Commerce by three arbitrators designated in accordance with those rules. The arbitration shall be held in London in the English language. The arbitrator will not have the power to conduct any form of class or collective arbitration nor join or consolidate claims by or for individuals. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
(ii) If you are a resident of the United States:
(c) Exceptions. There are only the following exceptions to this arbitration agreement.
(i) First, if we reasonably believe that you have in any manner violated or threatened to infringe the intellectual property rights, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any court of competent jurisdiction.
(ii) Second, if you are a resident of the United States, any dispute arising from, related to, or connected with this Agreement may, at the option of the claiming party, be resolved in small claims court in Los Angeles County, California, provided that all claims by all parties in the dispute fall within the jurisdiction of the small claims court. In addition, either of us may pursue enforcement actions through applicable U.S. federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available.
(iii) Third, if you are a resident of any EU member state, in case you do not agree to settle claims through arbitration, London courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle all claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including its formation, performance and breach).
(iv) Fourth, nothing herein will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of AlphaTheta Corporation or your right to seek injunctive relief in a court of law.
