19. ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER – _ IMPORTANT – PLEASE REVIEW AS THIS AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS _
OTHER THAN AS STATED IN THE "EXCEPTIONS" BELOW, YOU AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US (WHETHER OR NOT SUCH DISPUTE INVOLVES A THIRD PARTY) WITH REGARD TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH US, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DISPUTES RELATED TO THESE TERMS, YOUR USE OF THE EQUIPMENT OR SERVICES, AND/OR RIGHTS OF PRIVACY AND/OR PUBLICITY, WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION UNDER THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION'S RULES FOR ARBITRATION OF CONSUMER-RELATED DISPUTES AND YOU AND WE HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY.
DISCOVERY AND RIGHTS TO APPEAL IN ARBITRATION ARE GENERALLY MORE LIMITED THAN IN A LAWSUIT, AND OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU AND WE WOULD HAVE IN COURT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. You may bring claims only on your own behalf. Neither you nor we will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement to arbitrate. YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST US INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person's account, if we are a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and not by any state law concerning arbitration. In the event the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred and sixty (160) days of filing the case, then either we or you can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms. If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this paragraph will be null and void. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with us.
EXCEPTIONS: As limited exceptions to this Section 19: (i) you may seek to resolve a dispute in small claims court if it qualifies; (ii) we each retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief from a court to prevent (or enjoin) the infringement or misappropriation of our respective intellectual property rights; and (iii) you will retain the right to opt out of arbitration entirely and litigate any dispute if you provide us with written notice of your desire to do so within 30 days following the date you first agree to these Terms (you must use this address to opt out: EGYM, Inc., Attn: Arbitration Opt-Out, 2530 Frontier Avenue, Boulder, CO 80301 and you must include your name and address, the email address that you use for your EGYM account, and a clear statement that you want to opt out of this agreement to arbitrate).
20. CONTRACTING ENTITIES; GOVERNING LAW; AND JURISDICTION
All users of the Equipment and Services in the United States, Canada, and elsewhere in the world (other than as noted below) are contracting with EGYM Inc., unless otherwise specified in these Terms. Users that are residents of Europe (including those in the European Union and the United Kingdom) are contracting with EGYM GmbH. We may limit the availability of the Services, in whole or in part, to any person, geographic area or jurisdiction we choose, at any time. Not all Equipment or Services may be available in all states, countries, or territories.
These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of New York, without regard to principles of conflicts of law. The Uniform Commercial Code, the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act, and the United Nations Convention of Controls for International Sale of Goods shall not apply. Subject to the agreements in Section 19 above, exclusive jurisdiction for all disputes that are not required to be arbitrated will be the state and federal courts located in the County of New York, New York, and you and EGYM consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of those courts. You further agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Equipment and/or Services or these Terms will be forever barred if not filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose.
Any submissions by you to us (e.g., comments, questions, suggestions, materials – collectively, " Feedback") through any communication whatsoever (e.g., call, fax, email) will be treated as both non-confidential and non-proprietary. You hereby assign all right, title, and interest in, and we are free to use, without any attribution or compensation to you, any ideas, know-how, concepts, techniques, or other intellectual property and proprietary rights contained in the Feedback, whether or not patentable, for any purpose whatsoever, including but not limited to, developing, manufacturing, having manufactured, licensing, marketing, and selling, directly or indirectly, products and services using such Feedback. You understand and agree that we are not obligated to use, display, reproduce, or distribute any such ideas, know-how, concepts, or techniques contained in the Feedback, and you have no right to compel such use, display, reproduction, or distribution.
If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable or invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the remaining provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us and govern your use of the Equipment and Services, superseding any prior agreements between you and us. A printed version of the Terms and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. Your acceptance of these Terms and use of the Equipment or Services do not create a joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship between you and us, and you have no authority to bind us in any respect. You may not assign, delegate or transfer your rights or obligations under these Terms and any such prohibited assignment transfer shall be null and void. We may freely assign, delegate and transfer the Terms and any of our rights and obligations. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate services, third-party content, or third-party software. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. With respect to any releases set forth herein, if you are a California resident, YOU WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE §1542, WHICH SAYS: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR." All provisions of these Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall so survive termination, including, without limitation, the provisions regarding ownership and proprietary rights, disclaimer of warranties, release and waiver of liability, representations made by you, indemnities, limitations of liability, dispute resolution, choice of law and jurisdiction, and miscellaneous provisions shall survive any termination of these Terms.
