PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPH CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH SCITOR AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
You and Scitor agree to arbitrate any dispute arising from these Terms or your use of the Services, except that you and Scitor are NOT required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable and other relief for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents. ARBITRATION PREVENTS YOU FROM SUING IN COURT OR FROM HAVING A JURY TRIAL.
You and Scitor agree (a) to attempt informal resolution prior to any demand for arbitration; (b) that any arbitration will occur in The Netherlands; (c) that arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of the Netherlands; and (d) that the state or federal courts in The Netherlandfs have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals of an arbitration award and over any suit between the parties not subject to arbitration. Other than class procedures and remedies discussed below, the arbitrator has the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court. Any dispute between the parties will be governed by this Agreement and the laws of The Netherlands and applicable Dutch law, without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles that may provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction. Whether the dispute is heard in arbitration or in court, you and Scitor will not commence against the other a class action, class arbitration or other representative action or proceeding.
You can choose to reject this Agreement to Arbitrate (“opt-out”) by mailing us a written opt-out notice (“Opt-Out Notice”) through email at email@example.com within 30 after the date you accept these Terms for the first time. The Opt-Out Notice must state that you do not agree to this Agreement to Arbitrate and must include your name, address, phone number and the GitHub username used to log into your account. You must sign the Opt-Out Notice for it to be effective. This procedure is the only way you can opt-out of the Agreement to Arbitrate. If you opt-out of the Agreement to Arbitrate, all other parts of these Terms will continue to apply.
Notwithstanding any of these Terms, Scitor reserves the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, to terminate your license to use the Services and to block or prevent future your access to and use of the Services.
If any provision of these Terms is be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
If you have any questions, concerns, complaints or comments in any way related to your use of the Services, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
