Meltek reserves the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by User (without limiting User’s indemnification obligations with respect to that matter), and in that case, User agrees to cooperate with our defense of those claims.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT. As used in this Arbitration section, “User” and “User’s” mean the registered user(s) of the Services, and all of his/her heirs, survivors, representatives, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interests, successors, assigns, as well as all authorized and unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services under this or prior agreements. “Meltek,” “We,” and “Our” shall mean Meltek and shall be deemed to include all of its heirs, survivors, representatives, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, directors, officers, predecessors in interests, successors, assigns.
(a) Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between User and Meltek in the most expedient and cost effective manner, and except as described in Sections 16(b) and 16(c), User and Meltek agree that every dispute arising in connection with these Terms will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is an alternative dispute-resolution procedure that allows us to resolve issues without the formality of going to court. Arbitration is less formal 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. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of these Terms. USER UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, USER AND MELTEK ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
(b) Exceptions. Despite the provisions of Section 16(a), nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (i) bring an individual action in small claims court; (ii) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (iii) seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration; or (iv) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
(c) Arbitrator. Except where prohibited by law, User and Meltek agree that any and all Claims are to be arbitrated by a single arbitrator. An arbitration commenced pursuant to these Terms shall be administered and governed by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”). To the extent there is any inconsistency between the terms of this Arbitration Section and the AAA Rules the provisions of these Terms shall apply. The AAA Rules, forms and information are available online at www.adr.org.
(d) Notice of Arbitration; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if that other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail (“Notice of Arbitration”). Meltek’s address for Notice is: Woods Oviatt Gilman LLP, 1900 Bausch & Lomb Place, Rochester, New York 14604. The Notice of Arbitration must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice of Arbitration is received, User or Meltek may commence an arbitration proceeding. All arbitration proceedings between the parties will be confidential unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by User or Meltek must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any.
(e) Fees. User may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (i) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (ii) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
(f) Class Action Waiver. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, USER AND MELTEK AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN USER’S OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both User and Meltek 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.
(g) LIMITATION ON CLAIMS. USER MUST CONTACT MELTEK WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR OF THE DATE OF THE OCCURRENCE OF THE EVENT OR FACTS GIVING RISE TO A DISPUTE, OR USER WAIVES THE RIGHT TO PURSUE ANY CLAIM BASED UPON SUCH EVENT, FACTS OR DISPUTE. (h) Severability. If all or any provision of this Arbitration agreement is found invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, then User and Meltek agree that the provision will be severed and the rest of the agreement shall remain in effect and be construed as if any severed provision had not been included. The sole exception is that if the Class Action Waiver is found invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, User and Meltek agree that it will not be severable; the entire Arbitration section will be void and unenforceable and any dispute will be resolved in court subject to the governing law clauses specified in this Agreement. Under no circumstances shall arbitration be conducted on a class basis without Meltek’s express consent. (i) Arbitration Changes. Although Meltek may revise this Agreement in its discretion, Meltek does not have the right to alter this agreement to arbitrate or the rules specified herein with respect to any dispute once that dispute arises. (j) Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of and not to be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth in this Agreement. To exercise this right, you must send written notice of your decision to the following address: Arbitration Opt-Out 2093 Philadelphia Pike, Claymont, DE 19703-2424. Your notice must include your name, mailing address, Meltek account number, and state that you do not wish to resolve disputes with Meltek through arbitration. To be effective, this notice must be postmarked or deposited within 30 calendar days of the date on which you first accepted this Agreement unless a longer period is required by applicable law; otherwise, you will be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with this section. You are responsible for ensuring that Meltek receives your opt-out notice, so you may wish to send it by a means that provides for a delivery receipt. If you opt out of these arbitration provisions, Meltek will not be bound by them with respect to disputes with you.
17. Governing Law
For our U.S. customers, these Terms are governed by and construed under the laws of the State in which the Services are provided, without regard to its principles of conflicts of law, and regardless of User’s location. User and Meltek hereby submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts for resolution of any lawsuit or court proceeding permitted under these Terms.
18. Export Controls
User is responsible for complying with United States export controls and sanctions laws and regulations and for any violation of such controls, including any United States embargoes or other federal rules and regulations restricting exports. User represents, warrants and covenants that User is not (i) located in or a resident of any country that is the subject of comprehensive U.S. sanctions (currently Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, or the Crimea region of Ukraine/Russia), or that has been designated by the U.S. government as a “terrorist supporting” country; or (ii) on any of the U.S. government lists of prohibited or restricted end users.
These Terms do not, and shall not be construed to, create any partnership, joint venture, employer-employee, agency, or franchisor-franchisee relationship between User and Meltek. These Terms shall not be construed as creating third-party beneficiary rights in any person or entity, except as otherwise expressly provided in these Terms. If any provision of these Terms or portion of a provision is held to be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, that provision (or portion of the provision), to the extent required, will be severed from these Terms but such severance will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions of these Terms. User may not assign, transfer, or sublicense any or all of User’s rights or obligations under these Terms. Meltek may subcontract, assign, transfer, or sublicense any or all of our rights or our obligations under these Terms without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder will be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. Any heading, caption or section title contained herein is for convenience only, and in no way defines or explains any section or provision. These Terms and all other terms and conditions referenced herein constitute the entire agreement between User and Meltek relating to the subject matter of these Terms and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous written or oral agreements or understandings between User and Meltek relating to such subject matter. User’s use of the Services is subject to all additional terms, policies, rules, or guidelines applicable to the Services or certain features of the Services that Meltek may post on or link to from the Services (the “Additional Terms”). All Additional Terms are incorporated by this reference into, and made a part of, these Terms. Without limitation, a printed version of these Terms and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. Meltek will not be responsible for any delay or failure to fulfill any obligation under these Terms due to any cause beyond its control, including without limitation acts of God, acts of war, civil or military disturbances, terrorism, nuclear or natural catastrophes, earthquake, flood, pandemic or epidemic, embargo, riot, sabotage, labor shortage or dispute, governmental act, or failure of Internet, communications, or power grid infrastructure. Meltek is under no obligation to provide support for the Services. In instances where Meltek may offer support, the support will be subject to published policies.
