14. GOVERNING LAW AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION.

  1. Governing Law and Dispute resolution

These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Missouri and controlling U.S. federal law as applicable, without regard to its conflict of law principles.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you and Rapsodo agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If a dispute arises from or relates to this contract or the breach thereof, and if the dispute cannot be settled through direct discussions, the parties agree to endeavor first to settle the dispute by mediation administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Mediation Procedures before resorting to arbitration. The parties further agree that any unresolved controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this contract, or breach thereof, shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

Claims shall be heard by a panel of three arbitrators. Within fifteen (15) days after the commencement of arbitration, each party shall select one person to act as arbitrator and the two selected shall select a third arbitrator within ten days of their appointment. If the arbitrators selected by the parties are unable or fail to agree upon the third arbitrator, the third arbitrator shall be selected by the American Arbitration Association. The place of arbitration shall be St. Louis, Missouri unless the parties agree to an alternative location. The arbitration shall be governed by the laws of the State of Missouri. Depositions shall be limited to a maximum of 1 per party and shall be held within 30 days of the making of a request. Additional depositions may be scheduled only with the permission of the arbitrators, and for good cause shown. Each deposition shall be limited to a maximum of 4 hours duration. The arbitration will be based on the submission of documents and there shall be no in-person or oral hearing. Time is of the essence for any arbitration under this agreement and arbitration hearings shall take place within 90 days of filing and awards rendered within 120 days. Arbitrator(s) shall agree to these limits prior to accepting appointment. The arbitrators will have no authority to award punitive, other damages not measured by the prevailing party’s actual damages or any damages that are not expressly allowed under these Terms, except as may be required by statute. The arbitrator(s) shall not award consequential damages in any arbitration initiated under this section. Any award in an arbitration initiated under this clause shall be limited to monetary damages and shall include no injunction or direction to any party other than the direction to pay a monetary amount. The standard provisions of the Commercial Rules shall apply. Arbitrators will have the authority to allocate the costs of the arbitration process among the parties, but will only have the authority to allocate attorneys’ fees if a particular law permits them to do so or as otherwise provided herein. The award of the arbitrators shall be accompanied by a reasoned opinion. Except as may be required by law, neither a party nor an arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration hereunder without the prior written consent of both parties. The parties agree that failure or refusal of a party to pay its required share of the deposits for arbitrator compensation or administrative charges shall constitute a waiver by that party to present evidence or cross-examine a witness. In such event, the other party shall be required to present evidence and legal argument as the arbitrator(s) may require for the making of an award. Such waiver shall not allow for a default judgment against the non-paying party in the absence of evidence presented as provided for above.

You also acknowledge and understand that, with respect to any dispute with us arising out of or relating to your use of the System:

  • You are giving up your right to have a trial by jury;
  • You are giving up your right to serve as a representative, as a private attorney general, or in any other representative capacity, or to participate as a member of a class of claimants, in any lawsuit involving any such dispute; and
  • You must file any claim within one (1) year after such claim arose or it is forever barred.

If this arbitration provision is found (in a final, non-appealable order) by a court of competent jurisdiction 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 Wilmington, Delaware, and you and we hereby submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of these courts.

This agreement to arbitrate will not preclude you or Rapsodo 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 Rapsodo from: (A) applying to the appropriate court of competent jurisdiction for a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, or other interim or conservatory relief, as necessary; or (B) seeking relief in any state or federal court for disputes related to a violation or possible violation of Rapsodo’s intellectual property rights.

15. REPORT ABUSE.

If you have any reason to believe that content on the System violates any law, that any user of the System is using System services to violate the law, or that any user is violating the Terms or Privacy Policy you agree to promptly inform us in writing about the facts and circumstances of the alleged abuse/violations by writing to the address at the bottom of this Policy. We may, but are not obligated, to conduct an investigation into the allegations. We reserve the right to remove accounts, content, or postings that we, in our sole discretion, believe are offensive, illegal, or otherwise inappropriate.

16. OTHER MISCELLANEOUS TERMS.

You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and us as a result of the Terms or your use of the System. The Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us with respect to your use of the System.

Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms does not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect.

You may not assign, delegate, or otherwise transfer your account or your obligations under these Terms without our prior written consent. We have the right, in our sole discretion, to transfer or assign all or any part of our rights under these Terms and will have the right to delegate or use third-party contractors to fulfill our duties and obligations under these Terms and in connection with the System.

Our notice to you via email, regular mail (in either instance at the last address provided for your Account), or notices or links displayed in connection with the App constitutes acceptable notice to you under the Terms. We are not responsible for your failure to receive notice if email is quarantined by your email security system (e.g., “junk” or “spam” folder) or if you fail to update your email address. Notice will be considered received forty-eight hours after it is sent if transmitted via email or regular mail. In the event that notice is provided via links displayed in connection with the App, then it will be considered received twenty-four hours after it is first displayed.

You agree to comply with all applicable governmental laws, ordinances, rules, and regulations related to the retention of records. Under no circumstances will we be liable to you for your failure to retain necessary records, nor will our (non-)retention of records act to alleviate your duty under the law.

Except as expressly provided herein, nothing in these Terms is intended to confer upon any third-party any rights, remedies, obligations, or liabilities.

If we must enforce these Terms or prevail in any action, suit, or proceeding arising from or based upon the Terms, we shall be entitled to recover our reasonable attorneys’ fees in connection therewith in addition to court costs and other fees and disbursement incurred in such action, suit, or proceeding.
