APPLICABLE LAW AND VENUE:
These Terms of Service and your use of the Service shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United States of America and the State of Washington applicable to agreements made and to be entirely performed within the State of Washington (even if your use is outside of the State of Washington), without resort to its conflict of law provisions. You agree that with respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration (as set forth below), any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to the Service or these Terms of Service shall be filed only in the state and federal courts located in King County, Washington and you hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts.
In the event of any controversy between the parties, the parties hereto shall consult and attempt to reach a solution satisfactory to both parties. If they fail to do so within a period of thirty (30) days, then either party may, by notice to the other, demand mediation under the mediation rules of the American Arbitration Association. If resolution is not reached within sixty (60) days after service of a written demand for mediation, any unresolved controversy or claim shall be settled by arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association before a single arbitrator in Seattle, Washington. The arbitrator shall render a written opinion including findings of fact and law and the award and/or determination of the arbitrator shall be binding upon the parties, and their respective administrators and assigns, and shall not be subject to appeal. Judgment may be entered upon the award of the arbitrator in any court of competent jurisdiction. The expenses of the arbitration shall be shared equally by the parties unless the arbitration determines that the expenses shall be otherwise assessed and the prevailing party may be awarded its attorneys' fees and expenses by the arbitrator. It is the intent of the parties that, barring extraordinary circumstances, arbitration proceedings shall be concluded within ninety (90) days from the date the arbitrator is appointed. The arbitrator may extend this time limit only if failure to do so would unduly prejudice the rights of the parties. Failure to adhere to this time limit shall not constitute a basis for challenging the award. Consistent with the expedited nature of arbitration, pre-hearing information exchange shall be limited to the reasonable production of relevant, non-privileged documents, carried out expeditiously. This Section shall not apply to claims concerning the ownership, validity, infringement, misappropriation, disclosure, misuse or enforceability of any confidential information, patent right, copyright, mask work, trademark or any other trade secret or intellectual property. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration or claim shall be joined to any other arbitration or claim, and no class arbitration proceedings shall be permitted. In no event shall any claim, action or proceeding by you related in any way to the Service be instituted more than two (2) years after the cause of action arose. In the event that any term of this Section (Arbitration) is held to be in conflict with a mandatory provision of applicable law, such conflicting term shall be modified automatically to comply with such provision and the remainder of this Section shall not be affected.
If any provision of these Terms of Service shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms of Service and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. If there is any overlap or similarities with other previous agreements between you and Subsplash, these Terms of Service shall supersede those other agreements.
One or more patents owned by, or patent applications submitted, by Subsplash may apply to this Service and to the features or services accessible via the Service.
