  1. Dispute Resolution

    • Applicability. For any Dispute allowed to proceed despite Section 13 hereof (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief or any claim or dispute related to the enforcement or validity of either party’s intellectual property rights) where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000, the parties shall resolve the Dispute in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. The parties shall initiate such arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: (i) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions; (ii) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and (iii) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered and enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction; and (iv) the decision of the arbitrator will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act or its equivalent in other countries. Any Dispute resolution proceedings, whether in arbitration or court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class or representative action or as a named or unnamed member in a class, consolidated, representative or private attorney general legal action
    • Notice. In the event of a Dispute, you or Qwikword must give the other a Notice of Dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the Dispute, and the relief requested. You must send any Notice of Dispute by sending an e.mail to support@qwikword.com.

Qwikword will send any Notice of Dispute to you by overnight courier to your address if we have it, or otherwise to your email address. The parties will attempt to resolve any Dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the Notice of Dispute is sent. After sixty (60) days, either you or Qwikword may commence arbitration.

  • Class Action Waiver. Neither you nor Qwikword will seek to have any Dispute heard as a class action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings.
  • Severability. If the class action waiver set forth herein, or any other provision of this Section 15, is found to be illegal or unenforceable as to all or some aspects of a dispute, then that section will not apply to those aspects. Instead, those aspects will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining aspects proceeding in arbitration, and the remainder of this Section 15 will remain in full force and effect.
  1. Governing Law

This Agreement will be governed by the laws of the State of New York, United States of America, without regard to conflicts of laws provisions thereof. In the event that Section 15 is found unenforceable, or expressly prohibited by applicable law, the exclusive jurisdiction for any claim, action or dispute with Qwikword or relating in any way to your use of the Qwikword Services will be in the state and federal courts of the State of New York and the venue for the adjudication or disposition of any such claim, action or dispute will be in the County of New York in the City of New York.
