DISPUTES

READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND IMPACTS HOW CLAIMS YOU AND THE SAKE LAB MAY HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER ARE DETERMINED.

Agreement to Arbitrate
You and THE SAKE LAB agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen or may arise between us relating in any way to this or previous versions of the THE SAKE LAB Terms, your use of THE SAKE LAB Sites, Applications or Services, or to any products sold or distributed by THE SAKE LAB or through THE SAKE LAB Sites, Applications or Services will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify and the case proceeds as an individual (non-class, non-representative) case. The Federal Arbitration Act applies to this agreement.

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) and must follow these Terms as a court would.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to National Registered Agents, Inc., 160 Greentree Dr., Suite 101, Dover, Delaware, 19904. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at adr.org or by texting 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules.

The arbitration hearing will be held in the country in which you reside or at another mutually agreed location. You or THE SAKE LAB may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and THE SAKE LAB subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing.

The arbitrator will decide all claims in accordance with applicable law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving other THE SAKE LAB members but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same THE SAKE LAB member to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding and judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.

Prohibition of Class, Representative, and Consolidated Actions
You and THE SAKE LAB agree that each of us may bring claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action. Unless both you and THE SAKE LAB agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not join more than one party’s claims and may not adjudicate or determine any form of a representative, class, or consolidated proceeding. The arbitrator may award relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) only in favor of the individual party bringing the claim, if such relief is warranted by the facts and law. Any relief awarded by the arbitrator will not affect other THE SAKE LAB members.

If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration both you and THE SAKE LAB each waive any right to a jury trial. You and THE SAKE LAB also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.

 

GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to these Terms or previous versions of these Terms, your use of any THE SAKE LAB Sites, Applications or Services, or any products sold or distributed by THE SAKE LAB or through THE SAKE LAB Sites, Applications or Services, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule.

Unless you and THE SAKE LAB agree otherwise, in the event that the Agreement to Arbitrate above is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute, any legal suit, action or proceeding arising out of or related to these Terms or previous versions of these Terms, your use of any THE SAKE LAB Sites, Applications or Services, or any products sold or distributed by THE SAKE LAB or through THE SAKE LAB Sites, Applications or Services shall be instituted exclusively in the federal or state courts located in San Francisco, California. You agree to waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts.

INDEMNIFICATION

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless THE SAKE LAB and its officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors and content providers from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, judgments, awards, losses, costs, expenses or fees (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) resulting from your violation of these Terms, or your use of THE SAKE LAB Sites, Applications or Services.

 

WAIVER AND SEVERABILITY

No waiver of these Terms by THE SAKE LAB shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such Terms or any other term or condition, and any failure of THE SAKE LAB 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 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 these Terms will continue in full force and effect.
