18. Dispute Resolution
Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section (the “Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with us or our Workstream Parties and limits the way you can seek relief from us or our Workstream Parties.
a. Applicability of Arbitration Agreement
Any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity of these Terms, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate (collectively, the “Dispute”), which cannot be resolved informally in accordance with Section 18(b) below, shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms set forth in this Arbitration Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event of any actual, alleged or threatened violation of confidentiality or violation of Workstream or its providers intellectual property or other proprietary rights, Workstream or its provider may immediately resort to court proceedings in a court of competent jurisdiction as set forth above in order to seek immediate injunctive relief without posting of a bond, proof of damages or other similar requirement. The institution of any action for injunctive relief does not constitute a waiver of the right or obligation of any party to submit any claim seeking relief other than injunctive relief to arbitration. This Arbitration Agreement applies to You and Workstream and any Workstream Party.
b. Informal Dispute Resolution
There might be instances when a Dispute arises between you and us. If that occurs, we are committed to working with you to reach a reasonable resolution. You and us agree that good faith informal efforts to resolve Disputes can result in a prompt, low‐cost and mutually beneficial outcome. You and us therefore agree that before either party commences arbitration against the other (or initiates an action in small claims court if a party so elects), we will personally meet and confer telephonically or via videoconference, in a good faith effort to resolve informally any Dispute covered by this Arbitration Agreement. If you are represented by counsel, your counsel may participate in the conference, but you will also participate in the conference.
c. Arbitration Rules and Forum
The arbitration proceeding will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) before a single arbitrator selected pursuant to the AAA rules. The decision of the arbitrator will be final and binding. Any final award or judgment may be filed and enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties shall share equally in the costs assessed for the arbitration, and each party shall bear its own attorneys’ fees and costs. Any arbitration proceeding may not be consolidated or joined with any other proceeding and will not proceed as a class action.
THE PARTIES UNDERSTAND THAT THEY WOULD HAVE HAD A RIGHT OR OPPORTUNITY TO LITIGATE DISPUTES THROUGH A COURT, TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE THEIR CASE, AND TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER PROCEEDING INVOLVING MULTIPLE CLAIMANTS, BUT THEY INSTEAD CHOOSE AND AGREE TO HAVE ALL DISPUTES AS SET FORTH HEREIN DECIDED THROUGH INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION.
The place of arbitration shall be San Francisco, California, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by all parties to the arbitration. The parties acknowledge that this Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce, and the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Sections 1–16, shall govern the interpretation, enforcement and proceedings pursuant to this Arbitration Agreement. The parties expressly agree that any and all actions taken under the Arbitration Agreement and related provisions, including but not limited to all filings, orders, judgments, and awards made in any arbitration proceeding, are confidential and may not be disclosed to any third party.
This Arbitration Agreement provision will survive the termination of these Terms.
f. Time Limitation on Claims.
The parties agree that they must initiate arbitration within one (1) year after any Dispute arose; otherwise, the Dispute is permanently barred.
g. Class Action Waiver.
YOU AND WORKSTREAM 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. Further, unless both You and Workstream agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void.
h. Waiver of Jury Trial
EXCEPT AS SPECIFIED IN SECTION 18(A) YOU AND WORKSTREAM AND APPLICABLE WORKSTREAM PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You, Workstream, and any of the Workstream Parties are instead electing that all covered claims and disputes shall be resolved exclusively by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 18(a) above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow these Terms as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
19. Governing Law
Any dispute arising from these Terms and your use of the Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles. If any dispute between the parties is not subject to arbitration, then the state and federal courts located in Dover County, Delaware, will have exclusive jurisdiction. You and Workstream waive any objection to the venue in any such courts. If your local law requires that consumer contracts be interpreted subject to local law and enforced in the courts of that jurisdiction, this section may not apply to you (but only to the extent that local law conflicts with this section).
20. Disclosures for California Customers
If you are an individual residing in California, you may report complaints to the Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Product of the California Department of Consumer Affairs by contacting them in writing at 400 R Street, Sacramento, CA 95814, or by telephone at (800) 952-5210.
21. Terms Applicable To New Jersey Consumers
No provision in these Terms will apply to any consumer in New Jersey if the provision limits remedies for (i) negligence, (ii) products liability claims, (iii) the punitive damages laws, (iv) the New Jersey Uniform Commercial Code, or (v) failure to reasonably protect against harm arising from certain criminal acts of third parties (e.g., computer hacking and identity theft). The provisions of these Terms concerning the exclusion or limitation of certain damages are not applicable in New Jersey with respect to statutory damages, punitive damages, loss of data, and loss of or damage to property. Workstream reserves all rights, defenses, and permissible limitations under the laws of New Jersey and under the laws of your state.
22. Electronic Communications
For contractual purposes, you (a) consent to receive communications from Company in an electronic form; and (b) agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that Company provides to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications would satisfy if it were in a hardcopy writing. The foregoing does not affect your non-waivable rights.
23.Severability and No Waiver
If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. Workstream’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision.
24. Export Control
You are responsible for complying with the export laws and regulations of the United States and other applicable jurisdictions. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you represent, warrant, and covenant that you are not: (1) located in, or a resident or a national of, any country subject to a U.S. government embargo; (2) listed on any U.S. government list of prohibited or restricted parties; or (3) engaged in activities directly or indirectly related to proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
25. Entire Agreement
These Terms (including any Supplemental Terms) reflect the entire agreement between you and us relating to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior agreements, representations, statements and understandings of the parties. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Use of the word “including” will be interpreted to mean “including without limitation.” Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third-party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity. You agree that communications and transactions between us may be conducted electronically. Please note that e-mail communications will not necessarily be secure; accordingly, you should not include credit card information or other sensitive information in your e-mail correspondence with us.
