20. MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTIONS WAIVER
READ THIS SECTION 20 CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
DO NOT RELY SOLELY UPON THE INFORMATION PROVIDED IN THESE TERMS WHEN DECIDING WHETHER TO AGREE TO SECTION 20 (MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTIONS WAIVER). THESE TERMS ARE NOT INTENDED TO CONTAIN A COMPLETE EXPLANATION OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF ARBITRATION OR WAIVER OF CLASS ACTIONS. CONDUCT FURTHER RESEARCH AND CONSULT WITH OTHERS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO AN ATTORNEY, REGARDING THE CONSEQUENCES.
You agree these Terms affect interstate commerce and the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. governs the interpretation and enforcement of these arbitration provisions, not state law. This Section 20 (MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTIONS WAIVER) is intended to be interpreted broadly and, subject to the Excluded Claims, governs Claims between OPSWAT and You, including but not limited to Claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between the parties, whether based in contract (including formation, performance, breach), tort (including intentional tort), statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or other legal theory, including consumer protection, advertising, common law; Claims arising out of or relating to these Terms, and/or Your download of, access to, or use of Services; Claims that arose before these Terms; and Claims that may arise after the termination or expiration of these Terms or the Services.
Excluded Claims. Excluded from the broad prohibition are Claims relating to: (a) Intellectual Property, including but not limited to enforcement actions, validity determinations, or Claims arising from or relating to theft, piracy, or unauthorized use of Intellectual Property, (b) breach of Sections 6 (Acceptable Use), 8 (OPSWAT Proprietary Rights), 13 (Fees), and 14 (Billing/Payment), (c) either party seeking equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction, or (d) Claims that can be resolved in the Small Claims Court located in San Francisco, California, U.S.A., Department 506
400 McAllister Street, San Francisco, CA 94102-4514 (“Excluded Claims”).
Initial Dispute Resolution. If You have a Claim involving OPSWAT, You agree that before taking formal action, You will email OPSWAT at Legal@opswat.com, and provide a written description of the Claim and Your contact information (including account user ID). The parties agree to use reasonable efforts to settle any Claim, and good faith negotiations shall be a condition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
Binding Arbitration. If the parties do not reach a mutually agreed solution within thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is initiated under the above Initial Dispute Resolution paragraph, either party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve Claims (except for Excluded Claims). Except for Excluded Claims, all Claims arising out of or relating to these Terms, the parties’ relationship with each other, and/or Your use of the Services shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by JAMS (or, if unavailable, such other similar group that can provide former judges as arbiters) in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Procedure Rules for Claims that do not exceed $250,000 and the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures for Claims exceeding $250,000, in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated, excluding rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions, by a single arbiter who is (a) fluent in written and spoken English, and (b) skilled and experienced with software, software-as-a-service applications, and Internet services.
Venue. The place of arbitration will be San Francisco, California, U.S.A. You and OPSWAT agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of federal or state court in San Francisco, California, U.S.A. in order to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
Arbitrator’s Powers. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all Claims arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of these Terms, including but not limited to any Claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable, whether a Claim is subject to arbitration, any unconscionability challenge, or the question of waiver by litigation conduct. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be written and binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The judgment of the arbitrator will be final, non-appealable (to the extent not inconsistent with Applicable Laws).
No Jury or Court Trial. The parties understand that, absent this Section 20 (MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTIONS WAIVER), they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury or court trial. They understand that, in some instances, arbitration costs could exceed litigation costs and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
CLASS ACTION WAIVER. The parties agree that the arbitration shall be conducted in the party’s respective individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND OPSWAT AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. NEITHER YOU NOR OPSWAT WILL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER OPSWAT CUSTOMERS OR USERS IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION. You cannot seek relief that will affect other OPSWAT customers or users. The arbitral tribunal has no power to consider the enforceability of this Class Action Waiver and any challenge to the Class Action Waiver may only be raised in a court of competent jurisdiction. If any court determines this Class Action Waiver is void or unenforceable for any reason or an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provisions set forth in this Section 20 (MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTIONS WAIVER) shall be deemed null and void in their entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate Claims.
30-Day Right to Opt Out. You may opt out and not be bound by Section 20 (MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTIONS WAIVER) by sending written notice (including name, physical address, account user ID, email, telephone, and a clear statement that You want to opt out of this Section 20 (MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTIONS WAIVER)) to opt out to OPSWAT, Inc., 398 Kansas Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, Attn: ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTIONS WAIVER OPT-OUT, within thirty (30) days of Your acceptance of these Terms. Otherwise You shall be bound to arbitrate Claims in accordance with Section 20 (MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTIONS WAIVER). If You opt out of Section 20 (MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTIONS WAIVER), OPSWAT also will not be bound by Section 20.
This Section 20 (MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTIONS WAIVER) survives expiration or termination of the Terms or the Services.

Severability. In the event any provision of these Terms becomes or is declared by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, void, or unenforceable, the remainder of the Terms continue in full force and effect and the application of such provision will be interpreted so as reasonably to effect the parties’ intent.
Force Majeure. In the event that either party is prevented from performing, or is unable to perform obligations under the Terms due to a Force Majeure Event (except for Your obligations under Sections 13 (Fees; Taxes) and 14 (Billing/Payment)), the affected party’s performance will be excused and the time for performance extended for the period of delay or inability to perform due to such occurrence; provided that the affected party: (a) provides the other party prompt notice (to the extent possible) of the nature and expected duration of the Force Majeure Event; (b) uses commercially reasonable efforts to address and mitigate the cause and effect of such Force Majeure Event; (c) provides periodic notice of relevant developments; and (d) provides prompt notice of the end of such Force Majeure Event. You understand that the Services may not be provided in countries listed on the Office of Foreign Assets Control sanction list and that Your rights to Services may be restricted in such countries and such prohibitions shall not constitute a Force Majeure Event.
Integration. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes all prior agreements or communications between the parties with regard to the subject matter. These Terms may not be amended or modified except by a writing signed by each party. These Terms supersedes and controls over conflicting or additional terms and conditions of any purchase order, acknowledgement, confirmation, or other document You issue.
Assignment. You will not, directly, indirectly, by operation of law or otherwise, assign or transfer all or part of these Terms or its rights or delegate performance of its duties without the prior written consent of OPSWAT. Any attempted assignment or transfer by You without consent shall be void and of no effect. OPSWAT may assign the Terms without obtaining Your consent: (a) to an OPSWAT Affiliate; or (b) in connection with a successor in interest in a merger, acquisition, reorganization, sale of all or substantially all of the assets, or other change of control. Subject to the foregoing, the Terms will be fully binding upon, inure to the benefit of, and be enforceable by, the parties and their respective permitted successors and assigns.
Third Party Beneficiaries. Nothing in these Terms shall confer, or is intended to confer, on any third party any benefit or the right to enforce these Terms.
Relationship. The parties enter into the Terms as independent contracting parties. Neither party will have, or hold itself out as having, any right or authority to incur any obligation on behalf of the other party. These Terms will not be construed to create an association, joint venture, or partnership between the parties or to impose any partnership liability upon any party.
Nonwaiver. The failure of either party to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any Terms provision or to exercise rights or remedies under the Terms will not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment to any extent of such party’s right to assert or rely upon any such provision, right, or remedy in that or any other instance; rather, the same will remain in full force and effect.
Compliance with Laws. OPSWAT and You agree to comply with Applicable Laws, including but not limited to those relating to anti-corruption, anti-bribery (e.g. U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, as amended), and exports (including restrictions on destinations, end users, and end use).
