Choice of Law and Dispute Resolution
For any issue you might have, you agree to first try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting Gradient. If a dispute is not resolved within 60 days of submission, you or Gradient must first resolve any claims relating to these terms, through final and binding arbitration, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify (if mediation was unsuccessful). Vienna International Arbitral Centre will administer the arbitration in Vienna under VIAC rules. There will be one arbitrator that you and Gradient both select. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language, but any witness whose native language is not English may give testimony in the witness’ native language, with simultaneous translation into English (at the expense of the party presenting the witness). Judgment upon the award rendered may be entered and will be enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction having jurisdiction over the parties. You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. In the event of your or others’ unauthorized access to or use of the Services or content in violation of these terms you agree that we are entitled to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent) in any jurisdiction.
