Thus, the above limitation only applies to you insofar as the exclusions of damages or limitations on liability are not prohibited under the applicable law.
23 Dispute Resolution, Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver
You agree to address specific disputes with CentiBlick through binding arbitration. Arbitration involves the resolution of disputes by an arbitrator, rather than through a judge or a jury. Both parties expressly waive the right to bring or participate in any form of class, collective, mass action, private attorney general action, or other representative action. This Arbitration Agreement supersedes all prior versions.
23.1 Covered Disputes. You and CentiBlick concur that any dispute or claim arising between you and CentiBlick relating to this Agreement or the Services (a "Dispute"), including related software, hardware, integrations, advertising, marketing communications, your account, or any aspects of your association or transactions with CentiBlick, will be resolved through binding arbitration. This applies to disputes that arose before the existence of this or any prior versions of this Agreement, as well as claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.
23.2 Exceptions to Arbitration. This Arbitration Agreement does not mandate arbitration for certain types of claims brought by either party: (i) Small claims court actions that fulfill the court's requirements and are on an individual basis; (ii) Claims concerning intellectual property rights, such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents.
23.3 Informal Dispute Resolution First. Prior to initiating arbitration, if you have a Dispute with CentiBlick, you agree to send an individualized request ("Pre-Arbitration Demand") to a designated address at CentiBlick. This is aimed at facilitating the resolution of the Dispute. If the Dispute remains unresolved within a specified period, arbitration may commence.
23.4 Arbitration Procedure. After the informal dispute resolution process, if either party wishes to initiate arbitration, the initiating party must serve the other party with a demand for arbitration. The arbitration process will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA"). The arbitration provider depends on your location. For example, if you're a California resident, ADR Services, Inc. will administer the arbitration under its Arbitration Rules. If you're not a California resident, National Arbitration and Mediation ("NAM") will oversee the arbitration under its Comprehensive Dispute Resolution Rules and Procedures.
23.5 Jury Trial Waiver. By accepting this Arbitration Agreement, you waive your constitutional and statutory rights to sue in court and have a trial by judge or jury. Dispute resolution through arbitration is subject to limited court review.
23.6 Mass Action Waiver. You and CentiBlick agree that claims against each other shall only be pursued on an individual basis and not on a class, collective, representative, or mass action basis. This waiver does not prevent you or CentiBlick from partaking in a class-wide settlement of claims.
23.7 Bellwether Arbitrations. In cases of Mass Filings, parties agree to resolve disputes through a Bellwether Arbitration process for efficiency.
23.8 Settlement Offers and Offers of Judgment. Offers of judgment may be served before arbitration hearings to allow judgment on specified terms.
23.9 Arbitration Costs. Your responsibility to pay arbitration costs depends on the applicable arbitration provider's rules.
23.10 Requirement to File Within One Year. Claims under this Agreement must be filed within one year after the claim or cause of action arises.
23.11 Opt-Out. You may opt out of this Arbitration Agreement within a specified period by sending an email with required details.
23.12 Severability. If a provision of this Arbitration Agreement is found illegal or unenforceable, the remaining provisions still apply.
24 Depersonalized and Combined Information
You consent to CentiBlick collecting and combining technical and other information regarding your and your End Users' utilization of the Services and Software in an anonymized or depersonalized form ("Combined Depersonalized Information"). CentiBlick may employ the Combined Depersonalized Information in compliance with relevant laws, including for purposes such as analyzing, enhancing, supporting, and running the Services and Software for you and other distinct clients. This applies throughout and beyond the duration of this Agreement, including generating industry benchmarks, best practices advisories, recommendations, or analogous reports.
