Governing Law and Arbitration.
A. Governing Law.
You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in United Kingdom; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over MGTE, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than the United Kingdom. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the United Kingdom, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located in the United Kingdom for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below.
For any dispute with MGTE, you agree to first contact us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that MGTE has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any MGTE claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (“ACAS”) under the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes then in effect for the ACAS, except as provided herein. The arbitration will be conducted in the United Kingdom, unless you and MGTE agree otherwise. Each party will be responsible for paying any ACAS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with ACAS rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of that party’s data security, Intellectual Property Rights, or other proprietary rights. ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND MGTE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by MGTE without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
B. Notification Procedures and Changes to the Agreement.
C. Entire Agreement/Severability.
This Agreement, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with MGTE in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and MGTE concerning the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect.
D. No Waiver.
No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and MGTE’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
E. Contact. Please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding this Agreement.
