Both you and Nitrolabs consent to personal jurisdiction and venue is such courts. If you reside in a country with laws that give consumers the right to bring disputes in their local courts, then these provisions do not override those laws.

Mandatory Binding Arbitration

If you and Nitrolabs do not reach an agreed-upon solution within the 30-day period informal dispute provision above, then you or Nitrolabs may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve the claim. You and Nitrolabs agree to resolve any claims, except for intellectual property claims described below, related to these Terms of Use through final and binding arbitration. This includes any disputes relating to the interpretation, application, enforceability, or validity of this mandatory arbitration provision.

The arbitration shall take place in San Francisco, California, the arbitration proceeding will be in the English language, and the arbitral decision may be enforced in any court.

However, if you agreed to previous version of these Terms of Use that allowed you to opt-out of arbitration, your previous decision remains binding.

Exceptions to Arbitration; Intellectual Property Disputes

Notwithstanding the parties’ agreement to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring an action, validity determinations, or claims arising from or relating to theft, piracy, infringement, or unauthorized use of intellectual property in and state of federal court in San Francisco, California, or the United States Patent and Trademark Office to protect its intellectual property rights (“intellectual property rights” means patents, trademarks, trade secrets, copyrights, and moral rights, but not privacy or publicity rights.

The parties understand that absent the mandatory arbitration provision, they would have a right to sue in court and have a jury trial. The parties further understand that, in some instances, the cost of arbitration may exceed the cost to litigation, and the right to discovery in arbitration may be more limited in arbitration than in court.

No Class Actions or Consolidated Actions

All claims and disputes within the scope of these Terms of Use must be arbitrated or litigated on an individual basis and not on a class action basis, and claims by one user cannot be arbitrated or litigated jointly or consolidated with any other user.
