5.8. Entire Agreement.
5.9. Choice of Law.
Except as set forth in Section 5.10 below, these Terms of Service and the provision of the Services to you are governed by the laws of England and Wales, without reference to principles of conflict of laws.
5.10. BINDING ARBITRATION.
5.10.1. Contact Us First.
If you have a question or concern about the Services, please contact us first. Our customer support team will try to answer your question or resolve your concern.
5.10.2. Agreement to Arbitrate.
In the unlikely event that our customer support team is unable to resolve your concerns, we each hereby agree to resolve any and all disputes or claims under these Terms of Service or with respect to the Services through binding arbitration or in small claims court (to the extent the claim qualifies) instead of in courts of general jurisdiction and only on an individual basis and not as part of any purported class, consolidated or representative proceeding. Arbitration, which is often cheaper, faster and less formal than a lawsuit in court, uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief as a court. Binding arbitration is subject to very limited review. Only the arbitrator appointed pursuant to this Section, and not any court or agency, shall have the authority to resolve any dispute or claim relating to this Section, including, without limitation, the scope, enforceability and arbitrability of these Terms of Service. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms of Service. These Terms of Service evidence a transaction in interstate commerce and the interpretation and enforcement of this Section 5.10 is governed by the Arbitration Act 1996 of England and Wales, notwithstanding the choice of law set forth in Section 5.9 above.
5.10.3. Scope of Agreement.
This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to:
(i) all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; (ii) all claims that arose before this or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising); and (iii) all claims that may arise after termination of these Terms of Service and/or your use of the Services.
Notwithstanding this Agreement to arbitrate, either party may
(i) bring an action on an individual basis in small claims court (to the extent the applicable claim qualifies),
(ii) bring issues to the attention of federal, state or local agencies and
5.10.5. Notice of Dispute.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to LIVE IT Group must be addressed to the address in Section 5.7 above (“Notice Address”) and must be sent by registered mail. The Notice to you must be addressed to a mailing, home or payment address currently on record with LIVE IT Group and must be sent by registered mail. If LIVE IT Group has no records of such physical address, such notice may be delivered to your LIVE IT Group account email address. The Notice must
(i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and
(ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If LIVE IT Group and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or LIVE IT Group may commence an arbitration proceeding.
5.10.6. Arbitration Proceedings.
The arbitration will be governed by the The London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), as modified by this Section 5.10, and will be administered by the LCIA and settled by a single arbitrator. The LCIA Rules are available online at www.lcia.org. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of these Terms of Service. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Section 5.10. Unless LIVE IT Group and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location in London, United Kingdom for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, LCIA shall determine the location. If your claim is for ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the LCIA Rules. If your claim exceeds ten thousand dollars ($10,000), the right to a hearing will be determined by the LCIA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. All decisions by the arbitrator shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
5.10.7. Costs of Arbitration; Legal Fees.
126.96.36.199 Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator costs and expenses imposed by LCIA will be governed by the LCIA rules, provided that if you are initiating an arbitration against LIVE IT Group and the value of the relief sought is ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or less, then LIVE IT Group will advance all filing, administrative and arbitration costs and expenses imposed by LCIA (subject to reimbursement as set forth below). If the circumstances in the preceding sentence apply, but the value of relief sought is more than ten thousand dollars ($10,000) and you demonstrate to the arbitrator that such costs and expenses would be prohibitively more expensive than a court proceeding, then LIVE IT Group will pay the amount of any such costs and expenses that the arbitrator determines are necessary to prevent the arbitration from being prohibitively more expensive than a court proceeding (subject to reimbursement as set forth below). In the event that the arbitrator determines that all of the claims you assert in arbitration are frivolous, you agree to reimburse LIVE IT Group for all such cost and expenses that LIVE IT Group paid and that you would have been obligated to pay under the LCIA rules.
188.8.131.52 Just as in any court proceeding, each party will initially bear its own lawyers’ fees and expenses in connection with any arbitration. Should either party be determined to have substantially prevailed in the arbitration, then upon such party’s request, the arbitrator shall award such prevailing party the reasonable lawyers’ fees and expenses that it incurred in connection with the arbitration, provided that to the extent that the dispute or claim relate to your personal or household use of the Services (rather than business use) LIVE IT Group will not seek to recover its lawyers’ fees and expenses in an arbitration initiated by you. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the reimbursement of lawyers’ fees and expenses upon request from either party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
5.10.8. Future Changes.
Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms of Service to the contrary, you and LIVE IT Group agree that if LIVE IT Group makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Notice Address) LIVE IT Group will provide you with notice of such change and you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change to the Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this provision as unmodified by such rejected change.
5.11. Waiver; Invalid Provisions.
The failure or delay of LIVE IT Group to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. No oral waiver, amendment or modification shall be effective under any circumstance whatsoever. If any provision of these Terms of Service is found by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the arbitrator or court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Service shall remain in full force and effect.
5.12. Judicial Forum.
In the event that the Agreement to Arbitrate above is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute, either as a result of your decision to opt-out of the Agreement to Arbitrate or for any other reason, then any dispute or claim not subject to arbitration shall be resolved exclusively by a court located in England and Wales. Both you and LIVE IT Group agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts and agree that such forum is convenient.
Any Section titles in these Terms of Service are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
Please report any violations of these Terms of Service by email.
We may, without your consent or approval, freely assign these Terms of Service and our rights and obligations under these Terms of Service, whether to an affiliate or to another entity in connection with a corporate transaction or otherwise.
