- Entire Agreement
- Governing Law and Arbitration; No Class Actions
These Terms, and any claim, cause of action or dispute (“claim”) arising out of or related to these Terms shall be governed by the laws of the state of California regardless of your country of origin or where you access the Services. ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THESE TERMS OR THE SERVICES WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN IN COURT, except for BlackThorn’s right to seek injunctive relief as set forth below. If you do not want to arbitrate disputes with BlackThorn and you are an individual, you may opt out of this arbitration agreement by sending a message through the form under the Contact Information section below within 30 days of the day you first access or use the Services. If you intend to seek arbitration you must first send written notice to BlackThorn of your intent to arbitrate (“Notice”). The Notice to BlackThorn should be sent by any of the following means: (i) a message through the form under the Contact Information section below or (ii) sending the Notice by U.S. Postal Service certified mail to BlackThorn Therapeutics, Inc., Attention: Legal, 780 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA 94103. The Notice must (x) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (y) set forth the specific relief sought; and (z) set forth your name, address and contact information. If we intend to seek arbitration against you, we will send any notice of dispute to you at the contact information we have for you. The arbitration will be conducted before a neutral single arbitrator, whose decision will be final and binding, and the arbitral proceedings will be governed by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules, Consumer Due Process Protocol, and Supplementary Procedures for Resolution of Consumer Related Disputes, as modified by these Terms. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this arbitration clause, but the arbitrator is bound by the terms of these Terms. If you initiate arbitration, your arbitration fees will be limited to the filing fee set forth in the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules. We will reimburse all other AAA filing, administration and arbitrator fees paid by you, unless the arbitrator determines that the arbitration was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, in which case the payment of all such fees shall be governed by the AAA rules. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. For any claim where the potential award is reasonably likely to be $10,000 or less, either you or BlackThorn may elect to have the dispute resolved through non-appearance-based arbitration. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, YOU AND BLACKTHORN EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDING WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, YOU AND BLACKTHORN EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. If a court of competent jurisdiction finds the foregoing arbitration provisions invalid or inapplicable, you and BlackThorn agree that all claims arising out of or related to these Terms must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in San Francisco County, California, and you and BlackThorn each agree to submit to the exercise of personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating all such claims. Notwithstanding the above, you agree that BlackThorn shall still be allowed to apply for and obtain injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
If you breach any term of this Terms or other agreement with BlackThorn, BlackThorn may pursue any legal or equitable remedy available, including but not limited to, direct, consequential, and punitive damages and injunctive relief. BlackThorn’s remedies are cumulative and not exclusive. Failure of BlackThorn to exercise any remedy or enforce any portion of the Terms at any time shall not operate as a waiver of any remedy or of the right to enforce any portion of the Agreement at any time thereafter. If any provision of the Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. This Terms is not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by you except with BlackThorn’s prior written consent. We may transfer, assign or delegate the Terms and its rights and obligations without consent. Users of this Services are responsible for compliance with all applicable regulations and laws. Upon termination of these Terms, any provision which, by its nature or express terms should survive, will survive such termination or expiration.
