Governing Law

Binding Arbitration and Waiver of Class Action

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY, AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.

Most client concerns can be resolved quickly and to the client’s satisfaction by emailing the QuantumVerse team at customerteam@QuantumVerse.com

If QuantumVerse has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally, including through mediation we each agree to resolve such dispute through binding arbitration or small claims court – instead of courts of general jurisdiction.

Arbitration Procedures 

QuantumVerse and you agree that all disputes and claims between us will be settled by arbitration or in small claims court. This agreement to arbitrate (the “Arbitration Agreement”) is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to the following:

  • 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 this or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);
  • claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and
  • claims that may arise after the termination of the Terms of Use.

Although you may not bring a suit in a court other than small claims court, you may bring issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, including, for example, the Federal Communications Commission or the Attorney General of your state. If the law allows, such agencies can seek relief against us on your behalf.

By entering into this Arbitration Agreement, you and QuantumVerse are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.

Because this document includes this Arbitration Agreement, making it a transaction in interstate commerce, it is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.

This Arbitration Agreement will survive termination of the Terms of Use.

A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to QuantumVerse should be addressed to General Counsel C/O QuantumVerse Software, Inc., 8201 164th Ave NE, Redmond, WA, 98052 (the “Notice Address”). The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”).  If QuantumVerse and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 60 calendar days after the Notice is received, you or QuantumVerse may commence an arbitration proceeding by filing an arbitration demand.  During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by either QuantumVerse or you will not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount you or QuantumVerse should receive.

The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) – known collectively as “the AAA Rules.” These rules may be as modified by this Arbitration Agreement; and they will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available at three sources: (1) online at adr.org; (2) by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879; or (3) by writing to the Notice Address.

The arbitrator will decide all issues, including the scope and enforceability of the Terms of Use, and arbitrability under the Arbitration Agreement.

Unless QuantumVerse and you agree otherwise, arbitration hearings will take place in a location reasonably convenient for both parties, with due consideration for their ability to travel and other similarly pertinent circumstances.  If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination will be made by AAA.

If your claim is for $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose from amongst these three ways of conducting the arbitration: (a) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (b) through a telephonic hearing; or (c) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator will issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.

The payment of these fees will be governed by the AAA rules.

This arbitrator may make rulings or resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees and expenses. His may be done at any time during the proceeding. It also may be done upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.

Either party may apply to the arbitrator seeking injunctive relief until the arbitration award is rendered or the controversy is otherwise resolved.  Either party also, without waiving any remedy under this Arbitration Agreement, may seek from any court having jurisdiction any interim or provisional relief that is necessary to protect the rights or property of that party, pending the establishment of the arbitration tribunal.

The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of a single party and only to provide that party’s relief.  You and QuantumVerse agree that each may bring claims against the other only as individuals; neither can become a plaintiff or class member in a class or representative proceeding. Unless both you and QuantumVerse agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate the claims of multiple persons. The arbitrator is not allowed to preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. Any attempt to issue a class or representative award will exceed the arbitrator’s power.

Changes to the Arbitration Provision.  QuantumVerse may, in the future, make changes to this Arbitration Agreement by providing you notice under the “Modification of these Terms of Use” provision above. We agree that should such a change be made while you are our customer, you may reject it by sending us written notice. The notice must be given within 30 calendar days of the notice of modification to the Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing, in accordance with the language of this provision, that you will settle any dispute between us by arbitration. This remains in effect even if it seems to conflict with some other provision in these Terms of Use.  Note: This paragraph does not apply if the change concerns only the Notice Address.

General

You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and QuantumVerse as a result of the Terms of Use or use of our service.  The performance of the company under these Terms of Use is subject to existing laws and legal process.  Nothing contained in these Terms of Use diminishes the right of the company to comply with governmental, court, and law enforcement requests or requirements relating either to your use of our service or to information supplied to QuantumVerse. If any part of these Terms of Use is determined to be invalid or unenforceable as a result of the above warranty disclaimers and liability limitations, – or as a result of any other legal requirements – then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be considered to have been replaced by whatever valid, enforceable provision most closely matches what the original provision was intending to accomplish. The remainder of these Terms of Use will continue in effect.

These Terms of Use, and the service options on our site constitute the entire agreement between you and QuantumVerse with respect to our service.  It supersedes all prior or contemporary communications and proposals between us, whether electronic, oral, or written. You may not pass on to someone else any of your rights or obligations under these Terms of Use without the company’s written consent.  The rights of the company under the Terms of Use may be transferred by the company to someone else. That right is not waived even if the company fails to enforce or exercise either any provision of the Terms of Use or any related right.

Unless otherwise stated, QuantumVerse may communicate with you officially by any reasonable means now known or later developed. These currently include email, regular mail, and postings on our service

A printed version either of this Agreement or of any notice sent in electronic form will be equally as admissible in legal proceedings relating to this Agreement as documents generated and maintained in printed form.  All parties approve of this Agreement and all related documents having been written in English.
