13. Dispute Resolution

YOU AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND METATRACE LTD WILL BE RESOLVED IN BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, AND YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND TO PARTICIPATE AS A CO-PLAINTIFF OR PARTICIPANT IN A CLASS ACTION IN ANY CLASS ACTION OR OTHER PROCEDURAL ACTIONS THROUGH A REPRESENTATIVE.

THIS RESERVATION IS NOT VALID: (1) IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT OF THE EEA OR ANY JURISDICTION THAT DOES NOT ALLOW SUCH AN ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, (2) IF YOU DECIDE TO OPT OUT OF ARBITRATION AS DESCRIBED BELOW IN THE "ARBITRATION" SECTION, OR (3) IN RESPECT OF CERTAIN TYPES OF DISPUTES LISTED BELOW IN THE "ARBITRATION" SECTION.

13.1. Arbitration

If you reside in the United States or another country where an arbitration clause is allowed in the relationship with you, you agree with METATRACE LTD that any disputes between you will be resolved in binding arbitration, with the exception that each party reserves the right to: (a) bring an individual claim in court for (b) seek an injunction or other interim measures by a competent court to prevent actual or potential infringement or illegal use of such party's copyrights, its rights to trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights (the actions described in this Part (b) are referred to as "IP Protection Action"). Regardless of this arbitration agreement, METATRACE LTD reserves the right to apply to any competent court with a claim demanding to stop the intentional or malicious use or violation by you (for example, in the form of hacking or falsifying your location) of the intellectual property rights, products and Services of METATRACE LTD and/or to recover compensation from you for this.

Without limiting the provisions of the previous paragraph, you will also have the right to take any other dispute to court if you send METATRACE LTD a written notice of your intention to do so by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 (thirty) days after the date of your first consent to these Terms (such notice is the "Arbitration Opt-out Notice"). If you do not notify METATRACE LTD of the Refusal of arbitration within such a 30-day period, it will be considered that you knowingly and purposefully waived your rights to apply to the court to resolve any dispute other than disputes expressly provided for in subparagraphs (a) and (b) above. In addition, unless you agree otherwise in writing with METATRACE LTD, the arbitrator cannot combine the claims of several persons and cannot accept any class actions or other forms of group claims through a representative. If such a waiver of the right to a class action is found to be legally unenforceable, the parties' agreement on arbitration settlement of disputes will be null and void. Except as provided in the previous sentence, this section "Dispute Resolution" remains in force after any termination of these Terms. If the conditions of this clause 13.1. The "Arbitration" will be recognized as legally unenforceable in terms of any separate claim, such a claim must be separated from the arbitration proceedings and declared in accordance with paragraph 13.6 "Governing Law and the Exclusive Venue of judicial dispute resolution". All other claims will be resolved by arbitration. The arbitrator, and not any court or office, has the exclusive authority to (a) determine the scope and legal applicability of this arbitration agreement and (b) resolve any dispute relating to its interpretation, applicability, enforceability or drafting, including any claims of nullity or impugnability of the agreement or any or parts of it.

13.2. Arbitration Rules

The arbitration proceedings will be conducted under the auspices of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the Rules of Commercial Arbitration and additional procedures for resolving disputes with Consumers ("AAA Rules") as amended at that time, but subject to the changes made by this section "Dispute Resolution". (You can read the AAA Rules on the website https://www.adr.org/Rules or by contacting AAA by phone 1-800-778-7879). The interpretation and application of this section are governed by the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act.

13.3. Arbitration Process

A party intending to initiate arbitration proceedings is obliged to send a written Arbitration Request to the other party, as required by the AAA Rules (AAA provides for a general Arbitration requirement). The sole arbitrator must be either a retired judge or a lawyer admitted to practice law, whom the parties will select from the list of potential arbitrators provided by AAA. If the parties are unable to agree on an arbitrator within 14 (fourteen) days after the award of the Arbitration Claim, AAA will appoint an arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.

13.4. Arbitration Location and Procedure

Unless otherwise agreed between you and METATRACE LTD, the arbitration proceedings will be conducted in confidence in your country of permanent residence. If the amount of your claim does not exceed $ 10,000, the arbitration proceedings will be conducted solely on the basis of documents provided by you and METATRACE LTD to the arbitrator, and other evidence (for example, affidavits) will not need to be examined, unless the arbitrator decides that it is necessary to hold hearings. If the amount of your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator may, at his discretion, require the parties to the dispute to make a reasonable exchange of information, taking into account the expedited nature of the arbitration procedure. Notwithstanding this right of the arbitrator, in the absence of compelling reasons, under no circumstances are the parties allowed to attach more than three (3) of their statements from each side to the case file, and combined statements of the type provided for in section 30 (b) are not allowed(6) The Federal Code of Civil Procedure and paragraph 2025.230 of the California Code of Civil Procedure.

13.5. The Decision of the Arbitrator

The arbitrator will make a decision within the time limits set by the AAA Rules. The decision of the arbitrator will be subject to confidentiality, and it will contain the main results and conclusions on the basis of which the arbitrator made his decision. Confirmation and enforcement of an arbitration award may be carried out by any competent civil court. The arbitrator's decision regarding damages must comply with the terms of section 12 "Limitation of liability" with respect to the types and amounts of damage for which one or another party may be held liable. The arbitrator may make decisions on the introduction of an injunction and the introduction of other interim measures only in favor of the plaintiff and only if it is necessary to satisfy the requirements stated in the plaintiff's individual claim. In the event of your winning the arbitration, you will be entitled to a refund for the services and expenses of your lawyers to the extent that such compensation is provided for by applicable law. METATRACE LTD will not seek and hereby waives any rights to reimbursement of legal fees and expenses that METATRACE LTD may have under applicable law in the event of winning the arbitration.

13.6. Governing Law and the Exclusive Venue of judicial dispute resolution

If these Terms allow you or METATRACE LTD to initiate legal proceedings in court in addition to claims in small claims court, you and METATRACE LTD agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of such disputes to state and federal courts located in the Northern Judicial District of California. Each of the parties to these Terms waives any rights of objection to the authority or location of such courts. These Terms and your use of the Services are governed by the law of the State of California without regard to its conflict of laws rules. If you are a resident of the EEA or a country in which this clause is prohibited by local law, this clause does not apply to you and does not deprive you of protection by the mandatory provisions of your country's consumer protection legislation.

13.7. Arbitration Fees

Our obligations to pay any registration and administrative fees and arbitrator fees charged by AAA are limited exclusively to the AAA Rules. However, if the amount of your claims for damages does not exceed $75,000, METATRACE LTD will pay all such fees, unless the arbitrator determines that your claim or your claims stated in the Arbitration Claim were unfounded or had unfair purposes (according to the standard established by article 11 (b) of the Federal Code of Civil Procedure).

13.8. Changing the Dispute Resolution procedure

Regardless of the provisions of the above section "Modification of the Terms or Services", in the event that METATRACE LTD changes this section "Dispute Resolution" after the date of your first consent to these Terms (or your consent to any subsequent changes to these Terms) You have the right to refuse to apply such changes by sending us a written notice (by e-mail to [email protected]) within 30 (thirty) days from the date of entry into force of such changes. The effective date of the changes is indicated either as the "date of the last revision" at the beginning of the Terms, or in the notification of METATRACE LTD to your address about such changes. By refusing to accept any changes, you agree that you will resolve through arbitration any dispute between you and METATRACE LTD in accordance with the provisions of this section "Dispute Resolution" as amended on the date of your first consent to these Terms (or your consent to any subsequent changes to these Terms).
