7.1 Agreement to Arbitrate. This Section 7 is referred to as the Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and AIMS ERP, whether arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service or in connection with your use of the Services, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court, in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that you may assert individual claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. You agree that, by agreeing to these Terms of Service, you and AIMS ERP are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Arbitration Agreement shall not preclude either party from pursuing a court action for the sole purpose of obtaining a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction in circumstances in which such relief is appropriate, provided that any other relief shall be pursued through an arbitration proceeding pursuant to this Arbitration Agreement.
7.2 Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief. You and AIMS ERP agree that each may bring claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding. Unless both you and AIMS ERP agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate or join more than one person’s or party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a consolidated, representative, or class proceeding. Also, the arbitrator may award relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) only in favour of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that party’s individual claim(s).
7.3 Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution. AIMS ERP is always interested in resolving disputes amicably and efficiently, and most participant concerns can be resolved quickly and to the participant’s satisfaction by emailing AIMS ERP’s support team at firstname.lastname@example.org. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, a party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to AIMS ERP should be sent to AIMS ERP at M2-1082, Sydney Road, Fawkner, Victoria, AUS 3060, Attn: General Counsel. (“Notice Address”). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If you and AIMS ERP do not resolve the claim within ninety (90) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or AIMS ERP may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by AIMS ERP or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or AIMS ERP is entitled.
7.4 Confidentiality. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
Any action, claim, or dispute related to these Terms of Service will be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, excluding its conflicts of law provisions, and controlling U.S. federal law. The Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act will not apply to these Terms of Service. If any provision of these Terms of Service Agreement is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms of Service, which will remain in full force and effect. Failure of AIMS ERP to act on or enforce any provision of these Terms of Service will not be construed as a waiver of that provision or any other provision herein. No waiver will be effective against AIMS ERP unless made in writing, and no such waiver will be construed as a waiver in any other or subsequent instance. Except as expressly agreed by AIMS ERP and you, these Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between you and AIMS ERP with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all previous or contemporaneous agreements, whether written or oral, between you and AIMS ERP with respect to the subject matter. The section headings are provided merely for convenience and will not be given any legal import. These Terms of Service will inure to the benefit of our successors and assigns. You may not assign these Terms of Service without our prior written consent. Any information submitted or provided by you to the Services might be publicly accessible. Important and private information should be protected by you.
