THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN ROBOTERRA AND YOU. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
You agree to release, defend, indemnify, and hold ROBOTERRA and its affiliates and subsidiaries, and their officers, directors, employees and agents, harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected with (a) your access to or use of the Services or Content or your violation of these Terms; (b) your User Content; (c) your (i) interaction with any User, (ii) reliance on any information exchanged via the Services, or (iii) creation of a User Account; (d) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property, or privacy right; or (e) any claim that you or your User Content caused damage to a third party. ROBOTERRA shall have the right to control all defense and settlement activities.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without ROBOTERRA’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. ROBOTERRA may assign or transfer these Terms, at its sole discretion, without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Unless otherwise specified herein, any notices or other communications permitted or required hereunder, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be in writing and given by ROBOTERRA (i) via email to the email address on your account or (ii) by posting to the website or via the application. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted. You may provide notice to us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
21. Controlling Law and Jurisdiction
You agree that (i) the Services shall be deemed solely based in California, and (ii) the Services shall be deemed a passive website that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over ROBOTERRA, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California. These Terms shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. You and we agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in Santa Clara, California for any actions for which the parties retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights, as set forth in the Dispute Resolution Provision below.
YOU AND ROBOTERRA AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SERVICES OR CONTENT MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED AND WAIVED.
These Terms are intended to govern the agreement between ROBOTERRA and you to the extent permitted by all applicable laws, ordinances, rules, and regulations. If any provision of these Terms or the application thereof to any person or circumstances shall, for any reason or to any extent, be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of these Terms and the application of such provision to other persons or circumstances shall not be affected thereby, but rather shall be enforced to the greatest extent permitted by law.
23. Dispute Resolution Provisions
You and ROBOTERRA agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or to the use of the Services (collectively “Disputes”) will be resolved according to the provisions of this section
Informal Resolution. We will first try to resolve any Dispute informally. Accordingly, neither of us may start a formal proceeding for at least 30 days after one of us notifies the other of a Dispute in writing. Notice of the Dispute will include a brief 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 will send your notice by email to email@example.com AND to the address listed directly below. For Administrators, we will send our notice to the email and U.S. mailing address associated with your account.
Formal Resolution. If the Dispute is not resolved informally, we agree that it will be resolved by binding arbitration and not in courts of general jurisdiction; except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights.
You acknowledge and agree that you and ROBOTERRA are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and ROBOTERRA otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.
Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
Arbitration Process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at www.adr.org/si.asp?id=3477 and a separate form for California residents atwww.adr.org/si.asp?id=3485.) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of California and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and ROBOTERRA otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and ROBOTERRA submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law.
Fees. Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $5,000, ROBOTERRA will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
No Class Action. YOU AND ROBOTERRA 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 we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
Changes. Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Modification” section above, if ROBOTERRA amends this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms) you will be notified in accordance with these Terms. You may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to firstname.lastname@example.org) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated Date” above or in the date of ROBOTERRA’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and ROBOTERRA in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
Enforceability. If the “No Class Action” section of this Dispute Resolution Provision is found to be unenforceable, or if the entire Dispute Resolution Provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of the entirety of the Dispute Resolution Provision will be null and void and, in that case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described above will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms.
24. International Users

The failure of ROBOTERRA to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of ROBOTERRA. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
Certain areas of the Site or Application (and your access to or use of certain aspects of the Services or Content) may have different terms and conditions posted or may require you to agree with and accept additional terms and conditions.
