- PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY, AS IT INVOLVES A WAIVER OF CERTAIN RIGHTS TO BRING LEGAL PROCEEDINGS, INCLUDING AS A CLASS ACTION FOR RESIDENTS OF THE U.S.
- 15.1 Please contact Hybrid Adtech first! Hybrid Adtech wants to address your concerns without resorting to formal legal proceedings. Before filing a claim, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting Hybrid Adtech first through [email protected].
- 15.2 Judicial forum for disputes. You and Hybrid Adtech agree that any judicial proceeding to resolve claims relating to this Agreement or the Services will be brought in the federal or state courts of San Francisco County, California, subject to the mandatory arbitration provisions below. You and Hybrid Adtech consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in such courts.
U.S. RESIDENTS ALSO AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER:
- 15.3 ARBITRATION
Both Parties Agree to Arbitrate. You and Hybrid Adtech agree to resolve any claims relating to this Agreement or the Services through final and binding arbitration, except as set forth under Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate below.
Arbitration Procedures. The American Arbitration Association (AAA) (https://www.adr.org) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, or any other location we agree to.
Arbitration Fees and Incentives. The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. Hybrid Adtech will pay all arbitration fees for all customers on a pre-pay plan. Hybrid Adtech will not seek its attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate. Either you or Hybrid Adtech may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in San Francisco, California or any United States county where you live or work. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Services, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above. Arbitration will not be binding with regards to the Hybrid Adtech Materials at Hybrid Adtech’s sole discretion. If the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in San Francisco County, California to resolve your claim.
Opt-out of Agreement to Arbitrate. You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by sending an email within 30 days of first accepting this Agreement to [email protected] clearly stating that you wish to opt out of arbitration with Hybrid Adtech and include your first and last name, the company for which the account was created, and the email address associated with the account.
- 15.4 CLASS ACTION WAIVER. Both parties agree to resolve any disputes, claims or controversies on an individual basis, and that any claims arising out of, relating to or in connection with this Agreement (such as with respect to their validity or enforceability), the Hybrid Adtech Materials, or any services provided by Hybrid Adtech will be brought in an individual capacity, and not on behalf of, or as part of, any purported class, consolidated, or representative proceeding.
- 15.5 Controlling Law. This Agreement is governed by the law of the state of California except for its conflicts of laws principles, unless otherwise required by a mandatory law of any other jurisdiction.
- 16.1 Amendments. Hybrid Adtech reserves the right to revise this Agreement, and Client’s rights and obligations are at all times subject to the Agreement then posted at Hybrid Adtech.com. Client’s continued use of the Service constitutes acceptance. We will also endeavor to notify and give Client an opportunity to review and accept the revisions to the Agreement, which acceptance may be manifested in electronic form (such as through a click-through agreement). However, subject to applicable law, the inability to contact Clients through a valid email address regarding the revised Agreement and obtain express acceptance in no way limits the revised Agreement’s effectiveness and application.
- 16.2 Independent Parties. Hybrid Adtech is an independent contractor and not an agent of Client in the performance of this Agreement. This Agreement is not to be interpreted as evidence of an association, joint venture, partnership, or franchise between the parties. Nothing in this Agreement will be deemed to confer any third-party rights or benefits; there are no third-party beneficiaries (except the indemnitees referenced in Section 9).
- 16.3 Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties regarding use of the Services and will supersede all prior agreements between the parties, whether written or oral. No usage of trade or other regular practice or method of dealing between the parties will be used to modify, interpret, supplement, or alter the terms of this Agreement.
- 16.4 Force Majeure. Hybrid Adtech will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform as required by this Agreement because of any cause or condition beyond Hybrid Adtech’s reasonable control.
- 16.5 Use of Third Parties. Subject to Section 13 Hybrid Adtech may use third parties to perform its duties under this Agreement, including to serve advertisements on its behalf.
- 16.6 Severability. If any portion of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, such invalidity or enforceability will not affect the other provisions of this Agreement, which will remain in full force and effect, and the invalid or unenforceable portion will be given effect to the greatest extent possible.
- 16.7 Waiver. The failure of a party to require performance of any provision will not affect that party’s right to require performance at any time thereafter, nor will a waiver of any breach or default of this Agreement or any provision of this Agreement constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself.
- 16.9 Notice. All notices to Hybrid Adtech must be delivered in writing by courier, certified or registered mail (postage prepaid and return receipt requested), electronic mail, or as otherwise specified by Hybrid Adtech.
