SECTION 19 – AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE
We will make every reasonable effort to resolve any disagreements that you have with us. In the event that we cannot resolve a disagreement to your satisfaction (or if we cannot informally resolve a concern we may have with you after attempting to do so informally), then you and we agree that except as expressly provided below, any claim, dispute, or controversy you may have against us arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with these Terms, the Scaled Commerce LLC ecommerce solution, or the purchase or attempt to purchase of any Products or Services through the Scaled Commerce ecommerce solution shall be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and conducted before a single arbitrator pursuant to the applicable Rules and Procedures established by the AAA, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (as applicable), as modified by this agreement to arbitrate in this Section 10 (“Rules and Procedures”). The AAA’s rules, and a form for initiating arbitration proceedings, are available on the AAA’s site at http://www.adr.org. The language of any dispute resolution procedure or any proceedings will be English.
This Section applies to all consumers to the fullest extent allowable by law. The disputes governed by these procedures in this Section 10 include without limitation (a) claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between you and us; (b) claims that arose out of your use of the Scaled Commerce LLC ecommerce solution; and (c) claims currently the subject of a purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class. However, the dispute resolution procedure specifically does not apply to (i) a claim relating to the enforcement or validity of your or our intellectual property rights; (ii) a claim relating to an allegation of theft, piracy, or unauthorized use; or (iii) claims for which class action litigation can be brought.
YOU AND WE BOTH AGREE THAT (A) EACH OF US CAN ONLY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND THERE SHALL BE NO AUTHORITY FOR ANY CLAIMS TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE BASIS; (B) ARBITRATION CAN DECIDE ONLY YOUR AND/OR OUR INDIVIDUAL CLAIMS, AND THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S); AND (C) THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN THE CLAIMS OF OTHER PERSONS OR PARTIES WHO MAY BE SIMILARLY SITUATED AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING.
If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, either you or we may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and us (subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing based on the circumstances). Attendance at an in-person hearing may be made by telephone by you and/or us, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise. Any in-person arbitration shall be held at a location determined by the AAA pursuant to the Rules and Procedures (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for you), or at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and us.
You agree further that: (a) the arbitrator shall apply California law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, including principles of equity, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; (b) the arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving us, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving both you and us to the extent required by applicable law; (c) in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, we will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive.
With the exception of the Section above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures established by the AAA, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, the above is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this Arbitration Provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor we shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute.
SECTION 20 – GOVERNING LAW
Any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms shall be governed by the internal laws of the State of California, without regard to or application of its choice of law rules or conflicts-of-laws principles, except that the Arbitration provision of these Terms shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. In the event that the Agreement to Arbitrate above is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute, you agree that any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and us must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in Santa Clara County, California, and both you and us agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Santa Clara County, California for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.

All refunds and returns are subject to the publisher using the Scaled Commerce LLC ecommerce solution.

Recurring billing type plans such as subscription and rent-to-own plans can be paused or canceled if requested via the customer’s self service dashboard prior to the end of the period of the plan. The customer would login into their dashboard via the publisher’s site and go to their active plans where they can click on toggle to pause or cancel the plan at the end of the period. In the case where a publisher has a license deposit for the period, the customer is already paid up through the end of the period and their request to pause or cancel is for the next period.
Perpetual license deposits cannot be refunded unless the customer has self deactivated the license and the publisher’s customer service has agreed to the refund.
Chargebacks will be contested as the customer is 1) informed of the refund policy during checkout 2) has the ability to login and pause or cancel their recurring billing plan and 3) can contact the publisher customer anytime to request a credit or request support for technical around the licensing and software. If the license has been deposited and/or activated, the publisher can deem this product as being used.
