DISPUTE RESOLUTION

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall Zeeltech LLC, its affiliates, employees, licensors or service providers be liable for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, special, punitive, or enhanced damages, including, without limitation, loss of profits, whether incurred directly or indirectly, or any loss of data, use, goodwill, or other intangible losses, resulting from: (i) your access to or use of or inability to access or use the service; (ii) the conduct or content of other users or third parties on, through or following use of the service; or (iii) unauthorized access, use or alteration of your content, even if Zeeltech LLC has been advised at any time of the possibility of such damages (iv) your access to or use of the Services, (v) your User Content, or (vi) your violation of this Agreement.

We each agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be resolved solely by binding, individual arbitration and not in a class, representative or consolidated action or proceeding. You and Zeeltech LLC agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement, and that you and Zeeltech LLC are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement.

As limited exceptions to the above, you may seek to resolve a Dispute in small claims court if it qualifies; and (ii) we each retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief from a court to prevent (or enjoin) the infringement or misappropriation of our intellectual property rights. In addition, you will retain the right to opt out of arbitration entirely and litigate any Dispute if you provide us with written notice of your desire to do so by email at contact@blackgentryapp.com within thirty (30) days following the date you first agree to this Agreement.

Conducting Arbitration and Arbitration Rules. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this Agreement. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.orgor by calling 1-800-778-7879. A party who wishes to start arbitration must submit a written Demand for Arbitration to AAA and give notice to the other party as specified in the AAA Rules. The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at www.adr.org.

If your claim is for U.S. $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic or video-conference hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules.  If your claim exceeds U.S. $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) where you live, unless we both agree to a different location. The parties agree that the arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to decide all issues relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability and scope of this arbitration agreement.

By accepting this Agreement, you agree to the Arbitration Agreement in this document. In doing so, BOTH YOU AND Zeeltech LLC GIVE UP THE RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend any claims between you and Zeeltech LLC (except for matters that may be properly taken to a small claims court and are within such court’s jurisdiction). YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER CLASS PROCEEDINGS.

You have the right to consult with counsel of your choice (at your cost) concerning this Arbitration Agreement.

In no event shall any Dispute brought by either Party related in any way to the Application or Services be commenced more than 1 years after the cause of action arose. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
