Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
Informal Process First. You agree that in the event of any dispute between you and Neuralink, you will first contact Neuralink in writing at firstname.lastname@example.org and make a good faith sustained effort to resolve the dispute before resorting to more formal means of resolution, including without limitation, any arbitration or court action.
Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver. If your dispute remains unresolved thirty (30) days after you first contact Neuralink, any remaining dispute, controversy, or claim (collectively, “Claim”) relating in any way to your use of the Website will be resolved by arbitration, including threshold questions of arbitrability of the Claim. You and Neuralink agree that any Claim will be settled by final and binding arbitration, using the English language, administered by JAMS under its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “JAMS Rules”) then in effect (those rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference into this section, and as of the date of these Terms). The JAMS Rules and the JAMS Consumer Arbitration Minimum Standards, the latter effective July 15, 2009, are available at https://jamsadr.com. Arbitration will be handled by a sole, neutral arbitrator in accordance with the JAMS Rules. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court that has jurisdiction. You have a right to have the arbitration conducted via telephone, or as an in-person hearing in your hometown area (if you live in the United States) or another location that is reasonably convenient to you. Any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis – class, consolidated or representative arbitrations and class, consolidated or representative actions are not permitted. You understand that by agreeing to these Terms, you and Neuralink are each waiving the right to trial by jury or to participate in a class, consolidated or representative action or class, consolidated or representative arbitration. Court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator, however, can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief, or statutory damages). The place of arbitration will be San Francisco, California, but if you prefer a hearing in or closer to your hometown area, you and Neuralink will confer in good faith in order to identify a reasonable alternative location. Each of the parties shall cooperate in good faith in the discovery or exchange of nonprivileged information relevant to the dispute as necessary in accordance with the JAMS Rules. The arbitrator’s award will consist of a written statement stating the disposition of each claim, and the award will also provide a concise written statement of the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. You and Neuralink shall maintain the confidential nature of the arbitration proceeding and the award, including the hearing, except as may be necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, or except as may be necessary in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy, a judicial challenge to an award or its enforcement or unless otherwise required by law or judicial decision.
Costs of Arbitration. Payment for any and all reasonable JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be in accordance with the JAMS Rules and the JAMS Consumer Arbitration Minimum Standards. If the value of your claim does not exceed $10,000, Neuralink will pay for the reasonable filing, administrative and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration, unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose.
Opt-Out. You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and waiver of class provisions set forth in these Terms by sending written notice of your decision to opt- out to email@example.com. The notice must be sent to Neuralink within thirty (30) days of first accessing the Website or agreeing to these Terms (or if this section of the Terms is amended hereafter, within 30 days of such amendment being effective), otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with these Terms, and the notice must specify your name and mailing address. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, Neuralink also will not be bound by them.
Exceptions. Notwithstanding anything in these Terms to the contrary, you and Neuralink will have the right to bring an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable or conservatory relief, or if the Claim relates to intellectual property infringement or misappropriation, pending a final decision by the arbitrator.
Waiver and Severability
No waiver by Neuralink of any term or condition set forth in these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of Neuralink to assert a right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
If any provision of these Terms is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms will continue in full force and effect.
