You irrevocably waive all rights to seek injunctive or other equitable relief and agree to limit your claims to claims for monetary damages (if any).
18. Dispute Resolution/Mandatory Arbitration.
18.1 To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy or claim related to this Agreement (“Dispute”), you and Yodelay agree to first attempt to negotiate informally any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) for at least thirty (30) days before initiating any arbitration or court proceeding. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one person to the other. You will send your notice to Yodelay LLC, 44 Merrimac Street, Newburyport, MA 01950.
18.2 If you and Yodelay are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations within 30 days, either you or Yodelay may elect to have the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party will be final and binding on the other. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT, AND ARE HEREBY WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration will be commenced and conducted under the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “Rules”) of JAMS, which is available at the JAMS website www.jamsadr.com. The determination of whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation will be governed by the Rules. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so.
18.3 Notwithstanding the above, you and Yodelay agree that arbitration will be limited to the Dispute between Yodelay and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law: (a) no arbitration will be joined with any other; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.
18.4 You and Yodelay agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or Yodelay’s intellectual property rights; (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for injunctive relief or to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
19.1 The failure of Yodelay to require or enforce strict performance by you of any provision of this Agreement or to exercise any right under any provision of this Agreement will not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of Yodelay’s right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance.
19.2 You and Yodelay agree that if any portion of this Agreement, except any portion of Section 18.4, is found illegal or unenforceable, in whole or in part by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision will, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such determination of invalidity or unenforceability without affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other manner or jurisdiction and without affecting the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which will continue to be in full force and effect. If Section 18.4 is found to be illegal or unenforceable then neither you nor Yodelay will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of Section 18.4 found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute will be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within Boston, Massachusetts, and you and Yodelay agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
