17. Agreement to Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

THIS SECTION ONLY APPLIES TO PLAYERS IN THE US AND CANADA.

We Both Agree to Arbitrate

If we can’t resolve our dispute through Customer Service, you and Matcha Sauce  both agree to resolve any claims relating to the Terms and/or the Privacy Policy through final and binding arbitration. This applies to all kinds of claims under any legal theory, unless the claim fits in one of the exceptions in the Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate sub-section. It also applies even after you stopped using your Matcha Sauce  account or deleted it.

An arbitration proceeding is before a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge and jury, so we are both giving up our right to a trial before a judge and jury. Arbitrations have different rules than lawsuits in court. They are less formal than lawsuits in courts, and provide limited opportunity to force the other side to share information relevant to the dispute—a process called discovery. The arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. But, if any of us does not like the arbitrator’s decision, the courts only have a limited ability to change the outcome of arbitration or make the arbitrator reconsider his or her decision.

If we have a dispute about whether this agreement to arbitrate can be enforced or applies to our dispute, we all agree that the arbitrator will decide that, too. In addition, if you or Matcha Sauce  brings a claim in court that should be arbitrated or any of us refuses to arbitrate a claim that should be arbitrated, the other of us can ask a court to force us to go to arbitration to resolve the claim (i.e., compel arbitration). You and Matcha Sauce  may also ask a court to halt a court proceeding while an arbitration proceeding is ongoing.

The Arbitration Process

The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will run the arbitration between you and Matcha Sauce , and AAA’s then-current rules and procedures (including their Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes) will be used. If something in these Terms is different than AAA’s rules and procedures, then we will follow these Terms instead. You can look at AAA’s rules and procedures on their website www.adr.org or you can call them at 1-800-778-7879.

To start an arbitration proceeding, use the form on AAA’s website (www.adr.org class="x-el x-el-span px_-fs-unset px_-ff-_Poppins___arial__sans-serif px_-fw-600 x-d-ux">) or call them at 1-800-778-7879.

Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate

We all agree that we will go to court to resolve disputes relating to Your or Matcha Sauce ’s intellectual property (for example, trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights or patents

For more information about which court we can go to for resolving these types of disputes, see Section 19 (Venue for Legal Disputes Not Subject to Arbitration).

No Class Actions

We all agree that we can only bring a claim against each other on an individual basis.

That means:

  1. Neither      you nor Matcha Sauce  can bring a      claim as a plaintiff or class member in a class action, consolidated      action or representative action.
  2. The      arbitrator cannot combine more than one person’s claim into a single case,      and cannot preside over any consolidated, class or representative      arbitration proceeding (unless we both agree to change this).
  3. The      arbitrator’s decision or award in one person’s case can only impact the      person who brought the claim, not other Matcha Sauce  players, and cannot be used to decide      other disputes with other players.

If a court decides that this subsection on “No Class Actions” is not enforceable or valid, then this entire Section  (Agreement to Arbitrate and Class Action Waiver) will be null and void (i.e., go away). But, the rest of the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy will still apply.

Changes to This Section on Agreement to Arbitrate and Class Action Waiver

We will give you 60-days’ notice by email or through the Service if We propose to change this Section  on our Agreement to Arbitrate and Class Action Waiver.

18. APPLICABLE LAW

The Federal Arbitration Act (including its procedural provisions) is the law that will be applied to determine whether Section (Agreement to Arbitrate and Class Action Waiver) can be enforced and how it should be interpreted.

Apart from that, these Terms and our relationship will be governed by California law, except for its conflicts of laws principles. 

19. VENUE FOR LEGAL DISPUTES NOT SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION

If you are a United States resident, judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions) that are excluded from the Arbitration Agreement  must be brought in state or federal court in San Francisco, California, unless we both agree to some other location. You and Matcha Sauce  both consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in San Francisco, California.

20. SEVERABILITY

Except as described in the Section under the “No Class Actions” heading, if any part of these Terms or the Privacy Policy is not enforceable, the rest of these Terms of Use and Privacy Policy still applies and is binding and any unenforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible.

21. Miscellaneous

You agree to be responsible for obtaining and maintaining all telephone, computer hardware mobile devices and other equipment needed for access to and use of the Service, and all charges related thereto.

Matcha Sauce  operates and controls the Service from its offices in the United States. Matcha Sauce  makes no representation that the Service is appropriate or available in other locations.  The information and materials provided on the Service are not intended for distribution to or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject Matcha Sauce  to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country.  Accordingly, those persons who choose to access the Service from other locations do so on their own initiative and are solely responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.

Portions of the Service may be subject to United States export controls. You agree to comply with such export controls, as well as similar such controls in any applicable jurisdiction.  Without limiting the foregoing, you agree that no software from the Service may be downloaded, exported or re-exported (a) into (or to a national or resident of) Cuba, Iraq, North Korea, Iran, Syria, or any other country to which the United States has embargoed goods; or (b) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Commerce Department’s Table of Deny Orders. By downloading any software or applicable portion of the Service, you represent and warrant that you are not located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of, any such country or on any such list.

You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship exists between you and Matcha Sauce  as a result of these Terms of Use or your use of the Service. These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between you and Matcha Sauce  with respect to your use of the Service and any other subject matter hereof and cannot be changed or modified by you except as expressly posted on the Service by Matcha Sauce .  The failure of Matcha Sauce  to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision, and no waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.  If any provision of these Terms of Use is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Use shall remain in full force and effect.  Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice will act to modify these Terms of Use.  These Terms of Use may not be assigned by you without Matcha Sauce ’s prior written consent, but are freely assignable by Matcha Sauce .  The section headings used herein are for convenience only and shall not be given any legal import.  Upon Matcha Sauce ’s request, you will furnish Matcha Sauce  any documentation, substantiation or releases necessary to verify your compliance with these Terms of Use.  You agree that these Terms of Use will not be construed against Matcha Sauce  by virtue of having drafted them. You hereby waive any and all defenses you may have based on the electronic form of these Terms of Use and the lack of signing by the parties hereto to execute these Terms of Use.

You agree that the following sections of these Terms of Use will survive any termination of these Terms of Use, your Account or the Service:  Section F (Service Materials, Ownership, Trademarks and Feedback), Section H (Your Content), Section L (Termination), Section M (Disputes with Others), Section N (Disclaimers of Warranties and Damages, Limitations of Liability), Section P (Indemnification), Section Q (Governing Law and Remedies and Section R (Miscellaneous).
