Dispute settlement

Applicable law

These Terms and any related acts shall be governed by the laws of the State of California to the exclusion of its conflict of laws provisions.

Arbitration Agreement

You and braintronics® agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the violation, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services, Products or Content (collectively, the „Disputes“) shall be settled by binding arbitration, except that either party shall continue to have the right:

(i) bring an individual action in Small Claims Courts and (ii) seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction in respect of any claim for money arising out of a contract or tort up to a specified limit (between 200 EUR and 1.000 EUR) for which there is no mandatory attorney requirement, to prevent actual or threatened infringement, infringement or misappropriation of any copyright, trademark, trade secret, patent or other intellectual property right of any party (the action described in paragraph (ii) above is referred to as an „Intellectual Property Claim“). Without limiting the foregoing sentence, if you notify braintronics® of such action in writing by email to support@braintronics.de within thirty (30) days of the date on which you first agreed to be bound by these Terms (such notice being referred to as „Notice of Opposition to Arbitration“), you also have the right to bring any other dispute before the courts. If you do not provide braintronics® with such notice of appeal within thirty (30) days, you will be deemed to have knowingly and intentionally waived your right to bring a dispute before a court unless expressly provided otherwise in subparagraphs (i) and (ii) above. The exclusive jurisdiction and venue for all intellectual property claims or, if you notify braintronics® in a timely manner to challenge the arbitration, shall be the state and federal courts located in the Northern District of California, each party to this document hereby waiving all objections to the jurisdiction and venue of such courts. Unless you notify braintronics® in a timely manner of your opposition to arbitration, you acknowledge and agree that you and braintronics® will each waive the right to a jury trial or to participate as plaintiffs or class members in a class action or representative proceeding. In addition, unless you and braintronics® agree otherwise in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is found unenforceable, the entire „Dispute Resolution“ section shall be void. Except as otherwise provided in the preceding sentence, this paragraph „Dispute Settlement“ shall survive any termination of these Conditions.

Arbitration rules

The arbitration shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association („AAA“) in accordance with the then-current Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the „AAA Rules“), unless otherwise provided in this section „Dispute Resolution“. (The AAA Rules can be obtained at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at +49-5254-930980). The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this section.

Arbitration

A party wishing to initiate arbitration must submit to the other party a written request for arbitration pursuant to the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form for a general request for arbitration and a separate form for a request for arbitration for California residents.) The arbitrator is either a retired judge or a licensed attorney and is selected by the parties from the AAA’s list of arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree on an arbitrator within seven (7) days of service of the request for arbitration, the AAA shall appoint an arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.

Place and Conduct of the Arbitration

Unless you and braintronics® otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed 10.000 EUR, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of the documents that you and Braintronics® submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds 10.000 EUR, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.

Arbitration award

The arbitrator shall render a judgment within the time limits laid down in the AAA Rules. The award shall contain the essential findings and conclusions on the basis of which the arbitrator rendered the judgment. The award may be submitted to any court having jurisdiction. The damages awarded by the arbitrator in the award shall be consistent with the provisions of the „Limitation of Liability“ section above in respect of the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may make or grant a declaratory judgment or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and shall be limited to what the claimant has requested in his respective individual claim. If you win the arbitration, you will be entitled to reimbursement of your attorneys‘ fees and expenses if required by applicable law. braintronics® does not seek reimbursement of attorneys‘ fees and expenses and hereby waives all rights that braintronics® may have under applicable law for reimbursement of attorneys‘ fees and expenses if braintronics® wins the arbitration.

Fees

Your obligation to pay AAA application, administration and arbitration fees shall be governed solely by the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed 7.000 EUR, braintronics® will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator determines that either the content of your claim or the sought compensation in your request for arbitration was unfounded or for an improper purpose (as determined by the standards in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).

Amendments

Notwithstanding the provisions of the section „Changes to the Terms of Use“ above, if braintronics® changes this section „Dispute Resolution“ after the date on which you first agreed to (or later agreed to) these Terms of Use, you may opt out of any such changes by sending a written notice (including by email to feedback@braintronics.de) within 30 days of the date on which such change takes effect, as set out in the section „Last Updated“ above, or in the date of the email from braintronics® to you informing you of the change. By rejecting any changes, you agree that you will arbitrate any dispute between you and braintronics® in accordance with the provisions of this section „Dispute Resolution“ on the date you first agreed to these Terms (or later agreed to any changes to these Terms).

General Terms and Conditions

These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive agreement and understanding between braintronics® and you with respect to the Services, Products and Content, and these Terms supersede and supersede all prior oral or written understandings between braintronics® and you with respect to the Services, Products and Content. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid or unenforceable (either by an arbitrator appointed under the terms of the „Arbitration“ section above or by a court of competent jurisdiction, but only if you have timely objected to the arbitration by sending notice of objection to arbitration in accordance with the terms set forth above), that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible, the other provisions of these Terms remaining in full force and effect.

You may not assign or transfer these Terms by operation of law or otherwise without the prior written consent of braintronics®. Any attempted assignment of these Terms without the prior written consent of braintronics® is void and unenforceable. braintronics® may assign or transfer these Terms without limitation. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms shall be binding and effective upon the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.

All notices or other communications by braintronics® under these Terms, including those relating to changes in these Terms, will be made:

(i) by braintronics® via email, or

(ii) by posting in the Services. For communications sent by e-mail, the delivery date shall be the date on which the communication was sent.

Failure by braintronics® to enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not be deemed a waiver of that right or provision. Any waiver of such right or provision shall be effective only if made in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of braintronics®. Except as expressly provided in these terms and conditions, the exercise of any party’s rights under these terms and conditions shall be without prejudice to any other rights it may have under these terms and conditions or otherwise.
