16. Governing Law, Resolving Disputes, Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY, AS IT INVOLVES A WAIVER OF CERTAIN RIGHTS TO BRING LEGAL PROCEEDINGS, INCLUDING AS A CLASS ACTION.
16.1. Notice of Claim and Dispute Resolution Period
Please contact Launchpool first! Launchpool wants to address your concerns without resorting to formal legal proceedings, if possible. If you have a dispute with Launchpool, then you should contact Launchpool and a case number will be assigned. Launchpool will attempt to resolve your dispute internally as soon as possible.
The parties agree to negotiate in good faith to resolve the dispute (which discussions shall remain confidential and be subject to applicable rules protecting settlement discussions from use as evidence in any legal proceeding).
16.2. Agreement to Arbitrate
You and Launchpool agree that, subject to paragraph 13.1 above, any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Launchpool arising in connection with or relating in any way to these Terms or to your relationship with Launchpool as a user of Launchpool Services (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and whether the claims arise during or after the termination of these Terms) will be determined by mandatory final and binding individual (not class) arbitration, except as set forth below under Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate. You and Launchpool further agree that the arbitrator shall have the exclusive power to rule on his or her own jurisdiction, including without limitation any objections with respect to the existence, scope or validity of the Agreement to Arbitrate, or to the arbitrability of any claim or counterclaim. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. There may be more limited discovery than in court. The arbitrator must follow this agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including, if applicable, attorney fees), except that the arbitrator may not award declaratory or injunctive relief benefiting anyone but the parties to the arbitration. The arbitration provisions set forth in this Section will survive termination of these Terms. Arbitration Rules. The arbitration shall be subject to the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce (the "ICC") then in force (the "ICC Rules"). The arbitration will be administered by the International Court of Arbitration of the ICC. Unless the parties agree otherwise, there shall be only one arbitrator appointed in accordance with the ICC Rules. Any arbitration will be conducted in the English language, unless otherwise required by a mandatory law of a member state of the European Union or any other jurisdiction. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. JUDGMENT ON ANY ARBITRAL AWARD MAY BE GIVEN IN ANY COURT HAVING JURISDICTION OVER THE PARTY (OR OVER THE ASSETS OF THE PARTY) AGAINST WHOM SUCH AN AWARD IS RENDERED. Time for Filing: ANY ARBITRATION AGAINST Launchpool MUST BE COMMENCED BY FILING A REQUEST FOR ARBITRATION WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR, AFTER THE DATE THE PARTY ASSERTING THE CLAIM FIRST KNOWS OR REASONABLY SHOULD KNOW OF THE ACT, OMISSION OR DEFAULT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM; AND THERE SHALL BE NO RIGHT TO ANY REMEDY FOR ANY CLAIM NOT ASSERTED WITHIN THAT TIME PERIOD. THIS ONE YEAR LIMITATION PERIOD IS INCLUSIVE OF THE INTERNAL DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEDURE SET FORTH IN PARAGRAPH 1 OF THIS SECTION, ABOVE. THERE SHALL BE NO RIGHT TO ANY REMEDY FOR ANY CLAIM NOT ASSERTED WITHIN THAT TIME PERIOD. If applicable law prohibits a one-year limitation period for asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period permitted by applicable law. Process; Notice: The party who intends to seek arbitration after the expiration of the Dispute Resolution Period set forth in paragraph 1, above, must submit a request to the ICC in accordance with the ICC Rules. If we request arbitration against you, we will give you notice at the email address or mailing address you have provided. You agree that any notice sent to this email or mailing address shall be deemed effective for all purposes, including without limitation to determinations of adequacy of service. It is your obligation to ensure that the email address and/or mailing address on file with Launchpool is up-to-date and accurate. Seat of Arbitration: The seat of the arbitration shall be the Virgin Islands. Place of Hearing: The location of any in-person arbitration hearing shall be the Virgin Islands, unless otherwise agreed to by the parties. Governing Law / Jurisdiction: The governing law of the arbitration shall be the UK. Confidentiality. The parties agree that the arbitration shall be kept confidential. The existence of the arbitration, any nonpublic information provided in the arbitration, and any submissions, orders or awards made in the arbitration (together, the "Confidential Information") shall not be disclosed to any non-party except the tribunal, the ICC, the parties, their counsel, experts, witnesses, accountants and auditors, insurers and reinsurers, and any other person necessary to the conduct of the arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a party may disclose Confidential Information to the extent that disclosure may be required to fulfill a legal duty, protect or pursue a legal right, or enforce or challenge an award in bona fide legal proceedings. This confidentiality provision shall survive termination of these Terms and of any arbitration brought pursuant to these Terms.
16.3. Class Action Waiver.
You and Launchpool agree that any claims relating to these Terms or to your relationship with Launchpool as a user of Launchpool Services shall be brought against the other party in an arbitration on an individual basis only and not as a plaintiff or class member in a purported class or representative action. You and Launchpool further agree to waive any right for such claims to be brought, heard, or arbitrated as a class, collective, representative, or private attorney general action, to the extent permissible by applicable law. Combining or consolidating individual arbitrations into a single arbitration is not permitted without the consent of all parties, including Launchpool.
17.1. Severability If any provisions of these terms are found by the court of competent authorities to be invalid, void, unlawful or unenforceable under any applicable law, such unenforceability or invalidity shall not render these Terms unenforceable or invalid as a whole, and such provisions shall be deleted without affecting the remaining provisions herein.
17.2. Variation of Terms Launchpool has the right to revise these Terms, at our sole discretion at any time, and by using the Launchpool Website, you shall be expected to review such Terms regularly to ensure that you understand all provisions stipulated in these Terms.
17.3. Assignment Launchpool shall be allowed to assign, transfer, and subcontract its right and/or obligations under these Terms without any notification or your consent required. Nevertheless, you shall not be permitted to assign, transfer, or subcontract any of your rights and/or obligations under these Terms.
17.5. No Third-Party Rights Nothing in these Terms shall be deemed to create any rights in any creditors or other persons, not a party hereto, and these Terms shall not be construed in any respect to be a contract in whole or in part for the benefit of any third parties.
17.6. Electronic Signatures You agree that you may tender your signatures to be binding with these Terms and use Launchpool Services by electronic means, such as by email or by an online e-signature platform. The Parties agree that their digital signature or other forms of electronic acknowledgement, click-wrap agreement, consent, or acceptance, as the case may be:
- 17.6.1. constitutes their signature, acceptance, and agreement of these Terms; and
- 17.6.2. has the same force and effect as a signature affixed by hand.
- 17.7. Waiver The failure of one Party to require performance of any provision shall not affect that Party's right to require performance at any time thereafter. At the same time, the waiver of one Party to seek recovery for the other Party's violation of these Terms of any provisions of applicable terms shall not constitute a waiver by that Party of any subsequent breach or violation by the other Party or of the provision itself.
