21. GOVERNING LAW AND VENUE FOR DISPUTES

This Agreement, and your relationship with NASDAQ Private Market under this Agreement, is governed by the laws of the State of New York without regard to its conflict or choice of law provisions. Any dispute with the Released Parties arising under or in relation to this Agreement shall be resolved exclusively in New York, New York, except with respect to imminent harm requiring temporary or preliminary injunctive relief in which case NASDAQ Private Market may seek such relief in any court with jurisdiction over the parties. You understand that, in return for agreement to this provision, NASDAQ Private Market is able to offer the Site at the terms designated, and that your assent to this provision is an integral part of NASDAQ Private Market’s willingness to enter into this Agreement.

You also acknowledge and understand that, with respect to any dispute with the Released Parties, arising out of or relating to your use of the Site or this Agreement:

 

  • YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO HAVE A TRIAL BY JURY; and
  • YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO SERVE AS A REPRESENTATIVE, AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR IN ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS OF CLAIMANTS, IN ANY LAWSUIT INVOLVING ANY SUCH DISPUTE.

22. ARBITRATION

A. NASDAQ Private Market and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You and NASDAQ Private Market both intend this Section 22 to be broadly interpreted. The arbitrator shall be bound by the terms of this Section 22. Either party may alternatively bring an individual action in small claims court as opposed to arbitration provided that the procedure set forth in Subsection 22(C) below is observed.

Our agreement to arbitrate disputes includes, but is not limited to:

  • 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;

  • claims that arose before this or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);

  • claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and

  • claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.

For the purposes of this Section 22, references to “NASDAQ Private Market” and “us” include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of the Site. You understand and agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and NASDAQ Private Market are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision.

B. Any arbitration between you and NASDAQ Private Market will be conducted by JAMS/ENDISPUTE, Incorporated in accordance with its Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“Rules”) then in effect, as modified by these terms and conditions. The Rules are available online at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-clauses/ or by writing to the Notice Address. You may also obtain information about the arbitration process online at http://www.jamsadr.com/. The arbitration shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York without regard to conflict of law principles. The provisions of the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act, however designated, are excluded and shall not apply to the arbitration.

C. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail or Federal Express (signature required), a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to NASDAQ Private Market should be addressed to: The NASDAQ Private Market, LLC, Attn: Chief Legal Officer, 150 Spear Street, Suite 350, San Francisco, CA 94105 (“Notice Address”). The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If you and NASDAQ Private Market do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or NASDAQ Private Market may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or NASDAQ Private Market shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or NASDAQ Private Market is entitled.

D. After NASDAQ Private Market receives notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, it will reimburse you for your payment of any filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than $10,000. If your claim is greater than $10,000, the payment of any fees shall be decided by the Rules. Any arbitration hearings will take place at a location to be agreed upon in New York, New York. If your claim is for $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 Rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the 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. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse NASDAQ Private Market for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the Rules. In addition, as noted above, if you initiate an arbitration in which you seek more than $10,000 in damages, the payment of these fees will be governed by the Rules. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.

E. The arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. YOU AND NASDAQ PRIVATE MARKET 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 OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and NASDAQ Private Market agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.

F. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if NASDAQ Private Market makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the NASDAQ Private Market Arbitration Notice Address), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to the NASDAQ Private Market Arbitration Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any such change, you are affirming that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this provision, and your account with NASDAQ Private Market shall be immediately terminated. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement and the termination of your Site account.

G. If only Subsection 22(E) or the entirety of this Section 22 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 22 shall be null and void and, in each such case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 21 of this Agreement shall govern any action arising out of or related to this Agreement.

 

23. MISCELLANEOUS

If any portion of this Agreement is deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable by any arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction, this Agreement as a whole shall not be deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable, but only that portion of this Agreement that is unlawful, void or unenforceable shall be stricken from this Agreement.

You agree that if NASDAQ Private Market does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in this Agreement (or which NASDAQ Private Market has the benefit of under any applicable law), such failure to exercise such right or remedy may not be construed as a waiver of any other rights and remedies of NASDAQ Private Market.

Other than as described in this Agreement, this Agreement and the Privacy Policy represents the entire understanding and agreement between you and NASDAQ Private Market regarding the subject matter of the Site, and supersedes all other previous agreements.
