  1. Binding Arbitration Clause.
  • You and GateWise agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to (a) these Terms or the existence, breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or (b) your access to or use of the Services at any time, whether before or after the date you agreed to the Terms, will be settled by binding arbitration between you and GateWise, and not in a court of law.
  • YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND GATEWISE 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. Unless both you and GateWise otherwise agree in writing, any arbitration will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, collective, consolidated, or representative proceeding. However, you and GateWise each retain the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and 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.
  • Rules and Governing Law
  • The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this Arbitration Clause.
  • The parties agree that the arbitrator (“Arbitrator”), and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Clause, including any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Clause is void or voidable. The Arbitrator shall also be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether the Terms are unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, or estoppel.
  • Notwithstanding any choice of law or other provision in the Terms, the parties agree and acknowledge that this Arbitration Clause evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (“FAA”), will govern its interpretation and enforcement and proceedings pursuant thereto. It is the intent of the parties that the FAA and AAA Rules shall preempt all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA and AAA Rules are found to not apply to any issue that arises under this Arbitration Clause or the enforcement thereof, then that issue shall be resolved under the laws of the state of Texas.
  • 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 Arbitrator will be either (1) a retired judge or (2) an attorney specifically licensed to practice law in the state of Texas 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.
  • Location and Procedure. Unless you and GateWise otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in Houston, Texas. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and GateWise 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. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction to do so. 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. An Arbitrator’s decision shall be final and binding on all parties. An Arbitrator’s decision and judgment thereon shall have no precedential or collateral estoppel effect. The side which prevails in arbitration will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law.
  • Severability and Survival. If any portion of this Arbitration Clause is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, (1) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from these Terms; (2) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of the Arbitration Clause or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to the Arbitration Clause; and (3) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration.
  1. Miscellaneous
  • Choice of Law. This Agreement shall be deemed to be made, governed by, and construed in accordance with the laws of Texas, without giving effect to the conflicts of law principles thereof, except as may be otherwise provided in the Binding Arbitration Clause set forth in Paragraph ‎9. The foregoing choice of law and forum selection provisions do not apply to the Arbitration Clause in Paragraph ‎9 or to any arbitrable disputes as defined therein.
  • Paragraph Headings. The paragraph headings are inserted herein only as a matter of convenience and for reference and in no way are intended to be a part of theses Terms or to define, limit, or describe the scope or intent of these Terms or the particular paragraphs hereof to which they refer.
  • Severability. If any provision or a portion of any provision of these Terms is held to be unenforceable or invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the validity and enforceability of the enforceable portion of any such provision and/or the remaining provisions shall not be affected thereby.
  • Successors. These Terms shall be binding upon, and shall inure to, the benefit of the successors and permitted assigns of the parties.
  • Singular and Plural. Whenever the context shall so require, the singular shall include the plural, and the plural shall include the singular. In these Terms, the words “including” and “include” mean “including, but not limited to.”
  • GateWise’s failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by GateWise in writing. This provision shall not affect the Severability and Survivability section of the Arbitration Clause of these Terms.
  • You may not assign these Terms without GateWise’s prior written approval. GateWise may assign these Terms at its sole discretion without your prior consent. Any purported assignment in violation of this section shall be void.
  • Notice. GateWise may give notice by means of a general notice on the Services, telephone or text message to any phone number provided in connection with your User Account, or by written communication sent by first class mail or pre-paid post to any address connected with your User Account. Such notice shall be deemed to have been given upon the expiration of 48 hours after mailing or posting (if sent by first class mail or pre-paid post) or 12 hours after sending (if sent by telephone or text message). You may give notice to GateWise, with such notice deemed given when received by GateWise, at any time by first class mail or pre-paid post to our registered agent for Services of process, c/o GateWise, Inc.
