Limitation of Liability.
Arbitration and Class Action Waiver.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
You and ClassicReads agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of these arbitration provisions. This Section is intended to be interpreted broadly and governs any and all disputes between us, including but not limited to claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; claims that arose before these Terms or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims related to advertising, and any content available on or through any App or our website(s)); and claims that may arise after the termination of these Terms. The only disputes excluded from this broad prohibition are the litigation of certain intellectual property and small court claims, as provided below.
By agreeing to these Terms, you agree to resolve any and all disputes with ClassicReads as follows:
Initial Dispute Resolution: Most disputes can be resolved without resorting to litigation. You can reach us at . Except for intellectual property and small claims court claims, the parties agree to use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation with ClassicReads, and good faith negotiations shall be a condition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
The parties understand that, absent this mandatory arbitration provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
You and ClassicReads further agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any federal or state court in Los Angeles, California in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
Class Action Waiver: The parties further agree that the arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND ClassicReads AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provisions set forth above shall be deemed null and void in their entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
30-Day Right to Opt Out: You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to with the subject line, “ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER OPT-OUT.” The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of your agreement to these Terms; otherwise, you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those paragraphs. If you opt out of these arbitration provisions, ClassicReads also will not be bound by them.
Changes to This Section: ClassicReads will provide thirty (30) days’ notice of any changes to this section by posting on the Services, sending you a message, or otherwise notifying you in a reasonable manner. Amendments will become effective thirty (30) days after they are posted on the Services or sent to you.
Changes to this section will otherwise apply prospectively only to claims arising after the thirtieth (30th) day. If a court or arbitrator decides that this subsection on “Changes to This Section” is not enforceable or valid, then this subsection shall be severed from the section entitled “Arbitration and Class Action Waiver,” and the court or arbitrator shall apply the first Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section in existence after you began using the Services.
Survival: This Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section shall survive any termination of the Services.
The Terms and the relationship between you and ClassicReads shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Any claim or dispute either of us may have against the other that is not subject to arbitration must be resolved by a court located in Los Angeles County, California. We both agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located within Los Angeles County, California for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes that are not subject to arbitration.
Statute of Limitations.
Any cause of action arising out of or related to the Terms, the Website, or the Services must begin within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues. Otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred. There may be jurisdictions in which this contractual limit on the statute of limitations does not apply.
These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between us and you regarding the Services, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between us and you regarding such topic. Certain sections of these Terms shall survive any termination of your Account or any aspect of the Services, e.g., should we cease offering them. If we fail to enforce any part of these Terms, it will not be considered a waiver. Any amendment to or waiver of these Terms by us must be made in writing and signed by us. If any provision of these Terms (or part of such provision) is found to be invalid or unenforceable by any court having competent jurisdiction, then that provision (or part of that provision) shall be deemed severable from the Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions — that invalid or unenforceable (part of the) clause will be replaced by a valid and/or enforceable, as the case may be, (part of the) clause which is as close to the intention of the parties as possible. All of our rights and obligations under these Terms (including any license rights) are freely assignable by us in connection with a merger, acquisition, or sale of assets, or by operation of law or otherwise. Nothing in these Terms shall prevent us from complying with the law.
