RESERVATIONS AND CHARGES
BoxUnion offers various packages for classes, ranging from one to multiple classes per package and also offers various other services, including semi-private and private training sessions. Once a package is purchased, Participants will receive a class Credit in their account for each BoxUnion class purchased in the package. “Credit” refers to any credit to take a BoxUnion class, whether purchased or complimentary. All Participants and Members must create a BoxUnion account (“Account”) before taking a class.
All Participants must arrive 3 minutes prior to the start of class to guarantee their bag. We reserve the right to offer the reservation to another Participant if the booked Participant does not call ahead. Entry will not be granted if you are more than eight (8) minutes late.
Reserved classes may be cancelled without penalty 12 hours in advance of the scheduled class at www.BoxUnion.com (the “BoxUnion Website”) under My Account or through the BoxUnion mobile application (the “BoxUnion App”) on the Reserve or Reservation Details page. Each reservation not cancelled 12 hours in advance of the scheduled class will result in the forfeiture of the Credit used to reserve the class. (Please see below for the class cancellation policy for Memberships.)
If no reservations are available for a particular class, Participants may join the waitlist. As spots become available, class reservations are offered by email or text (depending on when the reservation becomes available) to Participants on the waitlist on a first come, first served basis. If a Participant is offered and accepts a reservation off the waitlist but fails to attend the class, it will result in the forfeiture of the Credit used to reserve the class. (Please see below for the class cancellation policy for Memberships.)
EXPIRATION AND TRANSFERABILITY OF CREDITS
Credits have an expiration date as described in the Credit, package or promotion details provided at the time of purchase. Once purchased, the expiration date or period can also be found on the BoxUnion App or the BoxUnion Website. Credits are non-refundable and cannot be resold.
BoxUnion offers various memberships for unlimited BoxUnion classes. Specific details for each of the Memberships, including the commitment period, can be found on the BoxUnion Website and BoxUnion App and/or in the promotional details provided at the time of purchase. Memberships cannot be shared or transferred, and any attempt to share or transfer a Membership will result in cancellation of the Membership, at BoxUnion’s sole discretion, without a refund.
If a Member requests a Membership downgrade, the change will take effect on the billing date following the Member’s request. Membership dues will not be prorated or refunded based on the date of the Membership downgrade request.
If a Member requests a Membership upgrade, the Member will have immediate access to their upgraded membership. The Member will be charged a prorated amount for the remainder of the monthly billing cycle, and the Membership upgrade will be reflected in the Member’s next billing date.
Some Membership changes, such as change to the membership type, will cause the commitment period to restart.
There is a 30-day cancellation policy for all memberships. If you would like to cancel your membership at any point, please stop by your home studio and fill out a termination form up to 30 days prior to the expiration of the current month. We will then process the form and cancel the auto renew membership. Membership dues will not be prorated based on the date of cancellation. Membership dues are non-refundable. We also have a freeze options available.
If no reservations are available for a particular class, Members may join the waitlist. As they become available, class reservations are offered by email or text to Members on the waitlist on a first come, first served basis. If Member is offered and obtains a reservation off the waitlist but fails to attend the class, it will result in a fee of $15, which will be charged directly to Member’s credit card.
MEMBERSHIP CANCELLATION POLICY
There is a 30 day cancellation policy for all memberships. If you want to cancel your membership at any point, just email your home studio up to 30 days prior to the expiration of the current month, and we will cancel the auto renew. Membership dues will not be prorated based on the date of cancellation. Membership dues are non-refundable.
UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED BY BOXUNION IN WRITING, MEMBERSHIP CHARGES WILL BEGIN AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE AND RECUR MONTHLY UNTIL CANCELLED BY THE MEMBER IN ACCORDANCE WITH OUR MEMBERSHIP CANCELLATION POLICY. MEMBERSHIPS BEGIN AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE (AND NOT AT THE TIME OF MEMBER’S FIRST CLASS). THE MONTHLY DUES WILL BE CHARGED AUTOMATICALLY AND ON APPROXIMATELY THE SAME DAY OF THE MONTH THAT THE MEMBERSHIP COMMENCED AND ORIGINAL MEMBERSHIP PAYMENT WAS MADE (the “Billing Date”).
Billing Dates cannot be moved to a different day of the month. If payment does not process successfully, the Membership will automatically become inactive until payment is made. Any lost time that results from payment processing failures will not be reimbursed or credited.
Cancelling a Membership before the end of the commitment period does not relieve Member of payment through the commitment period.
BoxUnion reserves the right to increase its Membership dues from time to time, and will provide Members written notice in advance of any increase and the opportunity to cancel their Membership once the increase is instated. Members who choose to continue their Membership will be charged the increased dues in the next billing cycle after the increase has been implemented. Please note that the advanced written notice and opportunity to cancel does not apply to Memberships that have automatic rate increases as described at the time of purchase.
PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS OF MEMBERS AND PARTICIPANTS
Memberships and Credits are non-refundable. Members and Participants shall not be relieved of the obligation to make payments agreed to, and no deduction from or reimbursement of any payment shall be made, because of Member’s or Participant’s failure to use BoxUnion’s facilities. In other words, Members must continue to pay the rate agreed upon for the duration of the Membership regardless of the number of classes attended. Participants will not be reimbursed or credited any unused Credits in the period allotted for the class package purchased. BoxUnion reserves the right to increase its Membership dues or class/package prices from time to time.
FORM OF PAYMENT
We accept MasterCard, Visa, and American Express. Cash payments may only be made at BoxUnion. Payments for Membership dues or classes may not be split between multiple cards, and processed payments may not be refunded in order to charge payment to a different card. Members and Participants maintain full control and privacy over their account at all times.
Once you have provided us with and agreed to store your credit card information on the BoxUnion Website or the BoxUnion App, you do not need to have your physical credit card on hand to make in-studio purchases. Your in-studio purchases can be applied to the credit card you entered on the BoxUnion Website or the BoxUnion App.
RETURNED PAYMENT PENALTY
Members and Participants will automatically be charged any bank fee imposed on BoxUnion, plus a processing fee of up to $25, for any returned payment due to closed accounts, insufficient funds, or other reason. If this occurs, BoxUnion retains the right to collect the current and past due balances in any month after the returned payment.
DISPUTED CHARGE PENALTY
In the event that a Member or Participant initiates a credit card dispute that is subsequently resolved in BoxUnion’s favor, BoxUnion shall have the right to charge the Member or Participant up to $50 per occurrence. Members or Participants who dispute a valid charge for a late cancellation or no-show will be subject to this $50 fee.
CHANGE IN OPERATING HOURS/TEMPORARY CLOSING OF FACILITY
As a result of repair, maintenance, special occasions or events, holidays, acts of God (such as an earthquake), or for other reasons, BoxUnion may elect to restrict the use of or temporarily close its facilities or activities from time to time. There will be no reduction, suspension or reimbursement of Membership dues during such time nor extension of a Membership period as a result of any temporary closing. Also, hours of operation may be amended from time to time, and certain facilities, services or programs may be added or eliminated from time to time, at BoxUnion’s sole discretion. For questions or specific issues about the closure of BoxUnion facilities and use of Credits, email email@example.com.
OFFERINGS FOR MEMBERS AND PARTICIPANTS
From time to time, BoxUnion may offer special promotions or offers. When such promotions or offers arise, please refer to the specific promotion details for any terms that may differ from these Terms and Conditions.
STUDENT, TEACHER AND MILITARY CREDITS
From time to time, BoxUnion offers discounted classes to students, teachers, and members of the military, subject to eligibility restrictions and conditions that are subject to change. Students, teachers, and members of the military who are interested in receiving these discounts must provide BoxUnion with the proof requested by BoxUnion to verify status. Student, teacher, and military class Credits are non-transferable and cannot be used to reserve a class for anyone other than the intended student, teacher or military recipient whose status has been verified by BoxUnion. BoxUnion reserves the right, from time to time, to verify eligibility for student, teacher, or military status.

BoxUnion also reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to require a Member or Participant to leave for the day if, in BoxUnion’s reasonable judgment, a Member or Participant poses a health or safety risk, or is disturbing or is likely to disturb any other Member, Participant or staff.

ARBITRATION AGREEMENT; CLASS WAIVER
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU AND BOXUNION TO AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED.
A. Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. All claims and disputes (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as set forth below) in connection with these Terms and Conditions which cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court shall be resolved, to the extent permitted by applicable law, by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this Arbitration Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement applies to you and BoxUnion, its direct and indirect parent, subsidiary affiliate entities, and each of their respective officers, directors, members, employees, shareholders, representatives and agents, and each of their respective successors and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or goods provided under these Terms and Conditions.
B. Notice Requirement and Informal Dispute Resolution. Before either party may seek arbitration, the party must first send to the other party a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and the requested relief. A Notice to BoxUnion should be sent to: BoxUnion, 1755 Ocean Avenue, Unit 104, Santa Monica, CA 90401, Attention: Legal. After the Notice is received, you and BoxUnion may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute informally. If you and BoxUnion do not resolve the claim or dispute within 30 days after the Notice is received, either party may begin an arbitration proceeding. The amount of any settlement offer made by any party may not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator has determined the amount of the award, if any, to which either party is entitled.
C. Arbitration Rules. Arbitration shall be initiated through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), an established alternative dispute resolution provider (“ADR Provider”) that offers arbitration as set forth in this section. If AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an alternative ADR Provider. The rules of the ADR Provider shall govern all aspects of this arbitration, including but not limited to the method of initiating and/or demanding arbitration, except to the extent such rules are in conflict with these Terms and Conditions. The AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules (“Arbitration Rules”) governing the arbitration are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator. Any claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is less than ten thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) may be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief. For claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is ten thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) or more, the right to a hearing will be determined by the Arbitration Rules. Any hearing will be held in the city of Los Angeles, California, unless the parties agree otherwise. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
D. Additional Rules for Non-Appearance Based Arbitration. If non-appearance arbitration is elected, the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online, and/or based solely on written submissions; the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties.
E. Authority of Arbitrator. If arbitration is initiated, the arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and BoxUnion, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the AAA Rules, and these Terms and Conditions. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and BoxUnion.
F. Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER.
G. Severability. If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed, and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
H. Right to Waive. Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Arbitration Agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Arbitration Agreement.
I. Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with BoxUnion.
J. Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or BoxUnion may bring an individual action in small claims court.
K. Equitable Relief. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek equitable relief before a court of competent jurisdiction for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents or emergency equitable relief before a court of competent jurisdiction in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration. A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of any other rights or obligations under this Arbitration Agreement.
GOVERNING LAW, VENUE AND JURISDICTION
To the extent the parties are permitted under these Terms and Conditions to initiate litigation in court, both you and BoxUnion agree that all claims and disputes, including statutory claims and disputes, arising out of or relating to these Terms and Conditions shall be governed in all respects by the substantive law of the state of California, without regard to its conflict of law principles. You and BoxUnion hereby consent to submit to the jurisdiction of the federal and state courts sitting in the State of California for any actions, suits or proceedings arising out of or relating to these Terms and Conditions that are not subject to the Arbitration Agreement.
These Terms and Conditions and any other rules, policies and regulations of BoxUnion as revised from time to time, constitute the entire and exclusive agreement between the parties, and supersede all prior promises, representations, understandings and/or agreements. This agreement may be modified only by an instrument in writing and only by BoxUnion.

Unless otherwise specified, copying or modifying any Content or using Content for any purpose other than your personal, non-commercial use of the BoxUnion Service, including use of any such Content on any other website or networked computer environment, is strictly prohibited. All rights not expressly granted by BoxUnion in these Terms are reserved.
- What information we may collect about you;
- What we use that information for; and
- With whom we share that information.
- Membership Requirements Registration
To enjoy full access to the BoxUnion Service, you must register as a member of the BoxUnion Service and enter into a subscription agreement for access to our live and on-demand classes, Content and features (a “Subscription”). You must provide complete and accurate registration information to BoxUnion, complete the Subscription process, and notify us if any of your information changes. If you fail to keep your account information up to date, we may have to suspend or terminate your Subscription.
In-Studio Classes and Membership. Participation in our in-studio live classes is subject to additional fees that are separate from the Subscription fees for BoxUnion’s online Content. You must have an account registered on our studio website in order to sign up for in-studio classes and/or purchase studio memberships, but you are not required to have a Subscription. Additional information about our in-studio class packs and memberships is available on our studio website.
Profile Information and Picture. You may not use someone else’s name, or any name, location, other public profile information or image that violates any third party rights, is against the law, or that is offensive, obscene or otherwise objectionable (in BoxUnion’s sole discretion).
Account Security. You are responsible for all activity that occurs under your account, including any activity by unauthorized users. You may not allow others to use your account. You must safeguard the confidentiality of your password, and if you are using a device that others have access to, log out of your account after using the BoxUnion Service. If you become aware of an unauthorized access to your account, change your password and notify our Support team immediately.
- Membership Structure and Fees
BoxUnion will provide information on its then-current Subscription requirements on the BoxUnion Site and/or by other means through the BoxUnion Service. Features and prices are subject to change.
- Membership Coverage. By purchasing a Subscription you will get full and unlimited access to all of BoxUnion’s available classes, content available on the BoxUnion Service, for as long as the Subscription remains active.
- The account holder of the Subscription will be the person who activated the Subscription on the device(s) or in the Apps to which the Subscription is attached (the “Subscription Holder”). We may impose restrictions on the number of streams that can occur simultaneously under a single Subscription. The Subscription Holder is responsible for all activity of all users under their Subscription.
- Billing Cycles and Auto-Renewal. Subscriptions recur on a monthly or annual basis until they are canceled in accordance with these Terms. Billing occurs at the beginning of the Subscription cycle and provides access for one month or one year thereafter depending on your choice of monthly or annual billing. By purchasing a Subscription, you acknowledge that your Subscription has recurring payment features and you accept responsibility for all recurring payment obligations prior to cancellation of your Subscription by you or BoxUnion. To change or terminate your Subscription, go to your account settings or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Amount to be Charged. Subscription Holders agree to pay the monthly or annual fee specified when you purchased your Subscription (plus any applicable taxes and other charges). If the amount to be charged varies from the amount you pre-authorized (other than due to the imposition of, or change in, applicable sales tax), you have the right to receive, and we will provide, notice of the amount to be charged and the date of the charge before the scheduled date of the transaction, unless applicable law requires you to expressly consent to the change in price. Any agreement you have with your payment provider governs your use of your specified payment method. You agree that we may accumulate charges incurred and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each billing cycle. Your failure to terminate and/or continued use of your Subscription reaffirms that we are authorized to charge you for that Subscription. We may submit those charges for payment and you will be responsible for such charges. This does not waive our right to seek payment directly from you.
- Billing Authorization. You may be asked to provide a payment method (such as a credit, charge or debit card number) that we accept in order to activate your Subscription, along with other payment information. You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use all payment method(s) that you provide to us. Your authorizations in this section also apply to our payment processors and any other companies who act as billing agents for us. You hereby authorize us to charge your specified payment method on a monthly or annual basis, in advance, for your Subscription(s) and/or to place a hold on your payment method with respect to any unpaid charges for your Subscription(s). You authorize the issuer of your selected payment method to pay any amounts described herein without requiring a signed receipt, and you agree that these Terms shall be accepted as authorization to the issuer of the payment method to pay any amounts described herein, without requiring a signed receipt from you. You authorize us to continue to attempt to charge and/or place holds with respect to all sums described herein, or any portion thereof, to your payment method until such amounts are paid in full. You agree to provide updated payment information upon request and any time the information you previously provided is no longer valid. You acknowledge and agree that neither BoxUnion, nor any BoxUnion agent, will have any liability whatsoever for any insufficient funds or other charges incurred by you as a result of attempts to charge, and/or place holds on, your specified payment method as contemplated by these Terms. If you provide a debit card number instead of a credit card number, you authorize all charges described herein to be applied to such debit card unless and until you provide a credit card number.
- Third-Party Payment Processors. You agree to pay us, through our payment processors, all charges at the prices then in effect for any purchase in accordance with the applicable payment terms presented to you at the time of purchase. You agree to make payment using the payment method you provide when you set up your account. We reserve the right to correct, or to instruct our payment processors or financing partners to correct, any errors or mistakes, even if payment has already been requested or received.
- Prepaid Periods. You may be given the opportunity to prepay for a period of one or more months of your Subscription. At the conclusion of a prepaid period, unless you cancel prior to renewal, and to the extent permitted by applicable law, your Subscription will automatically continue on a month-to-month basis at the then-existing non-promotional price for your Membership level.
- Free Trial; Other Offers. BoxUnion may offer additional promotions or discounts related to Subscriptions from time to time. Please read the details of those offers carefully, as any additional terms presented to you during the signup process will form part of these Terms. Unless specified in writing, all discount offers that require a payment are non-refundable. Any free trial or other promotion must be used within the specified time frame of the trial or promotion. You may be required to have a valid payment method on file in order to initiate a free trial; in this case, if you do not cancel before your free trial period ends, your account will be converted to a paid Subscription and will be charged in accordance with these Terms.
- Termination; Account Deletion
Term. These Terms begin on the date you first use the BoxUnion Service and continue as long as you have an account with us and/or continue to use the BoxUnion Service.
Cancellation of Subscription. If you terminate your Subscription, you may use your Subscription until the end of the then-current period and your Subscription will not be renewed after that period expires. However, you won’t be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the Subscription fee paid for the then-current Subscription period.
Termination. BoxUnion may, in BoxUnion’s sole discretion, suspend, disable, or delete your account (or any part thereof) or block or remove any User Content (defined below) that you submitted, for any lawful reason, including if BoxUnion determines that you have violated these Terms or that your conduct or User Content would tend to damage BoxUnion’s reputation or goodwill. If BoxUnion deletes your account, you may not re-register for or use the BoxUnion Service under any other user name or profile. BoxUnion may block your access to the BoxUnion Service to prevent re-registration.
Effect of Termination / Account Deletion. If your Subscription is terminated, BoxUnion has the right to immediately delete all data, files, and other information stored in or for your account without further notice to you. You must pay all charges up to and including the date of termination. Upon termination of these Terms all licenses granted by BoxUnion will terminate. The following sections survive termination: Privacy (Section 3), User Content (Section 5), Proprietary Rights (Section 7), Indemnification (Section 11), No Warranties (Section 13), Limitation of Liability (Section 14), Safety Warnings (Section 15), Governing Law and Disputes (Section 16), Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration (Section 17), and all general provisions. In the event of account deletion for any reason, User Content may no longer be available and BoxUnion is not responsible for the deletion or loss of such User Content. For clarity, if you cancel your Subscription or it is terminated for any reason, you will lose access to all live and on-demand classes and any other Content or features provided through the BoxUnion Service. BoxUnion, in its sole discretion, may make available a very limited amount of Content or features to non-subscribers from time to time, and any use of that Content is governed by these Terms.

In addition, you waive any so-called “moral rights” or rights of privacy or publicity in your User Content. You further grant all users of the BoxUnion Service permission to view your User Content for their personal, non-commercial purposes. If you make suggestions to BoxUnion or through the BoxUnion Service about improving or adding new features or products to the BoxUnion Service or you otherwise provide feedback, product or service reviews or testimonials, you hereby grant to BoxUnion a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, sublicensable (through multiple tiers), transferable royalty-free license and right to use, copy, modify, create derivative works based upon and otherwise exploit your suggestions, feedback, reviews and testimonials for any purpose (including for marketing), without any notice, compensation or other obligation to you.
You can remove your User Content by specifically deleting it. However, in certain instances, some of your User Content (such as posts or comments you make) may not be completely removed and copies of your User Content may continue to exist on the BoxUnion Service. We are not responsible or liable for the removal or deletion of (or the failure to remove or delete) any of your User Content.
- Copyright Complaints

I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless any and all of the Released Parties from any and all liabilities, claims, demands, expenses, damages, losses, causes of action, attorneys’ fees and costs of defense for, or on account of, death, personal injury, property damage and any other loss of any kind resulting from or related to: (i) my participation in the BoxUnion Service; or (ii) my breach of the terms and conditions of these Terms.
If applicable, for live classes in the BoxUnion Service, I grant the Released Parties permission to authorize emergency medical treatment as the Released Parties deem appropriate and agree that such authorization by the Released Parties shall be subject to the terms of this Release. I understand and agree that the Released Parties assume no responsibility for any injury or damage that might arise out of or in connection with such authorized emergency medical treatment. I accept personal responsibility for the payment of all of my own medical and emergency expenses in the event of accident, illness, or other incapacitation, regardless of whether or not I have authorized such expenses at the time they are incurred.
I further state that I am of lawful age and legally competent to agree to these Terms (or, if I am under 18 years old, I have directed my parent or legal guardian to read and agree to these Terms on my behalf). I have carefully reviewed these Terms, including this Section 15, fully understand the terms and conditions hereof, and have had the opportunity to consult with legal representation, or have knowingly chosen not to do so, prior to entering into these Terms.
BoxUnion reserves the right to refuse or cancel your membership if we determine that you have certain medical conditions or that the representations set forth above are untrue in any respect.
- Governing Law and Disputes
THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THeSE TERMS, ANY SALES THEREUNDER, AND/OR ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) BETWEEN YOU AND BOXUNION arising from or relating to thESE Terms, its interpretation or the breach, termination or validity thereof, the relationships that result from thESE Terms, BoxUnion’S advertising, or any related purchase SHALL BE GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF California, WITHOUT REGARD TO CONFLICTS OF LAW.
- Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration
YOU AND BOXUNION ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY, OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY ALSO BE UNAVAILABLE OR MAY BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION. ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER PRE-EXISTING, PRESENT OR FUTURE, AND INCLUDING STATUTORY, CONSUMER PROTECTION, COMMON LAW, INTENTIONAL TORT, INJUNCTIVE AND EQUITABLE CLAIMS) BETWEEN YOU AND WRITE TECHNOLOGIES, INC., its members, managers, agents, employees, successors, assigns, direct and indirect subsidiaries, and any third party providing any products or services to you in connection with your purchase arising from or relating in any way to your purchase of the Service, your use of the Service, these Terms, its interpretation or the breach, termination or validity thereof, the relationships that result from these Terms (including relationships with third parties who are not signatories to these Terms), BoxUnion’s advertising or any related purchase SHALL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or these Terms is void, voidable or otherwise invalid. The arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) or JAMS (or a substitute forum if both are unavailable). Arbitration proceedings shall be governed by this provision and the applicable procedures of the selected arbitration administrator, including any applicable procedures for consumer-related disputes, in effect at the time the claim is filed. Consumer claimants (individuals whose transaction is intended for personal, family or household use) may elect to pursue their claims in small-claims court rather than arbitration. The arbitration or small-claims court proceeding will be limited solely to the customer’s individual dispute or controversy. You agree to arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, NEITHER YOU NOR BOXUNION SHALL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER CUSTOMERS/USERS, OR ARBITRATE OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced (but in no case shall there be class arbitration). The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. This transaction shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA). Any award of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding on each of the parties, and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. Payment for all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the rules of the applicable arbitration administrator, provided, that BoxUnion will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. If you prevail on any claim that affords the prevailing party statutory attorneys’ fees, the arbitrator may award reasonable fees to you under the standards for fee shifting provided by law. Information on AAA or JAMS and their applicable rules are available at the following numbers and URLs: (i) American Arbitration Association: (800) 778-7879, www.adr.org; and (ii) JAMS: (800) 352-5267, www.jamsadr.com. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration each of you and BoxUnion waive any right to a jury trial. Moreover, each of you and BoxUnion both agree that either party may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or misuse of intellectual property rights.
