Waiver and Severability.
The failure of Beyond EI to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Agreements shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Agreements is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision and the other provisions of the Agreements shall remain in full force and effect.
Choice of Law/Forum Selection.
If there’s a dispute, our legal team is happy to help resolve the issue. If that doesn’t work your options are to go to Small Claims court or to District, Superior or Federal Court in Hampshire County Massachusetts. Further, you may not participate in a non-individual class action claim against us.
Most disputes can be resolved, so before bringing a formal legal case, please first try contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
10.4 No Class Actions
We both agree that we can each only bring claims against the other on an individual basis. This means: (a) neither of us can bring a claim as a plaintiff or class member in a class action, consolidated action, or representative action; (b) a judge can’t combine multiple people’s claims into a single case (or preside over any consolidated, class, or representative action); and (c) a judge’s decision or award in one person’s case can only impact that user, not other users. If a court decides that this “No class actions” clause isn’t enforceable or valid, then this section shall be considered to be null and void, but the rest of the Terms of Service will still apply.
