Relationship of the Parties
You are an independent contractor and are not an agent or employee of, and have no authority to bind LiquidSpace by contract or otherwise.
Governing Law; Arbitration
THIS SECTION INCLUDES AN ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND AN AGREEMENT THAT ALL CLAIMS WILL BE BROUGHT ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY (AND NOT AS A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING). PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY. YOU MAY OPT OUT OF THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT BY FOLLOWING THE OPT OUT PROCEDURE DESCRIBED BELOW.
Informal Process First
You agree that if you have any dispute with LiquidSpace relating in any way to these Professional Terms or from access to or use of the Service, you will first contact us and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally.
Arbitration (“Arbitration Agreement”)
If we are unable to resolve the dispute informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Professional Terms by binding arbitration. If you are an individual you may opt out of this Arbitration Agreement within 30 days of the first of the date you access or use the Service by following the procedure described below.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. There is no judge or jury in arbitration. Instead, the dispute is resolve by a neutral arbitrator. Court review of an arbitration award is limited. Except to the extent the parties agree otherwise, arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and LiquidSpace are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This Arbitration Agreement will survive any termination of these Professional Terms.
If you intend to seek arbitration, after following the informal dispute resolution procedure, you must first send written notice to LiquidSpace of your intent to arbitrate (“Notice”). The Notice to LiquidSpace should be sent by sending the Notice by registered or certified mail to 2225 E. Bayshore Rd. Suite 200,Palo Alto, CA 94303. The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. The arbitration will be administered by the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (“CPR”) under the CPR Rules for Administered Arbitration by a single arbitrator. The arbitration will be conducted in the County of Santa Clara, California, U.S.A.
Each party will be responsible for paying any CPR, administrative and arbitrator fees (other than the initial filing fees) in accordance with CPR Rules, except that LiquidSpace will pay for your reasonable filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000 and is non-frivolous (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)). Nothing in this Arbitration Agreement shall prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts for matters related to data security, intellectual property, or unauthorized access to the Service.
If you do not want to arbitrate disputes with LiquidSpace and you are an individual, you may opt out of this Arbitration Agreement by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of the first of the date you access or use the Service.
ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS GUEST 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 THESE PROFESSIONAL TERMS, YOU AND LIQUIDSPACE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement will be null and void.
If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, the dispute will be governed by the laws of the State of California and the FAA without regard to or application of its conflict of law provisions or your state or country of residence, and will be brought solely in the federal or state courts located in the County of Santa Clara, California, United States. You consent to the jurisdiction of and venue in such courts and waive any objection as to inconvenient forum.
