Before resorting to these alternatives, we strongly encourage You to first contact us directly to seek a resolution by contacting us. We will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation, as alternatives to litigation.
Law and Forum for Legal Disputes - This Agreement (the Terms) is governed in all respects by the laws of the State of California and controlling U.S. federal law, without regard to conflict of law provisions. You agree that any Claim or dispute You may have against Union Software Online, or Union Software Online may have against You, must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in Santa Clara County, California, or the federal courts of the District of California, USA, except as otherwise agreed by the parties or as described in the Arbitration Requirement paragraph below. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts (and arbitrators) located within Santa Clara County, California, USA, for the purpose of arbitrating or litigating all such claims or disputes.
Arbitration Requirement - Although Section 11 regarding Your remedies governs, for any claim (excluding claims by Union Software Online for injunctive or other equitable relief), the party requesting relief must resolve the dispute through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. This arbitration requirement is goverened by federal law. Arbitration will be through an established alternative dispute resolution ("ADR") provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. If we are unable to agree upon an ADR provider then the default ADR provider will be the American Arbitration Association, JAMS, or Judicate West, as decided by the party submitting the claim for arbitration. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: (a) the arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online, and/or solely based on written submissions, the specific manner will be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (b) the arbitration will not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and (c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction solely for the purposes of enforcement or collection if the monetary portion of the award is not satisfied within 45 days, or a party otherwise fails to comply with the award.
Improperly Filed Claims - All claims You bring against Union Software Online must be resolved in accordance with this Legal Disputes Section. All claims filed or brought contrary to this Dispute Resolution Section will be considered improperly filed. Should You file a claim contrary to this Dispute Resolution Section, Union Software Online may recover attorneys' fees and costs up to $1,000, provided that Union Software Online has notified You of the improperly filed claim, and You have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.
