8. General Terms.
If you provide any ideas, feedback, suggestions, materials, information, opinions, or other input to Skylum (“Feedback”), regardless of any accompanying communication, Skylum has no obligation to review, consider, or implement your Feedback. All such submissions are made on a non-confidential basis. Skylum and its successors and assigns have an unconditional and unlimited right to use, reproduce, modify, and disclose such Feedback without any compensation or attribution, and you waive and agree not to assert any so-called “moral rights” you may have in the Feedback.
8.2. Governing Law and Choice of Forum; Arbitration.
This Agreement will be governed by the laws of New York, without reference to any applicable conflict of laws rules or provisions. This Agreement shall not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the application of which is expressly excluded.
Arbitration. Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or the breach thereof, shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitration shall be conducted in the State of New York, New York County, in English. Within fifteen (15) days after the commencement of arbitration, the parties shall either agree on a single arbitrator, or if they cannot so agree, then each party shall select one (1) person to act as arbitrator and the two (2) selected shall select a third arbitrator within ten (10) days of their appointment. If the arbitrators selected by the parties are unable or fail to agree upon the third arbitrator, the third arbitrator shall be selected by the American Arbitration Association. Consistent with the expedited nature of arbitration, each party will, upon the written request of the other party, promptly provide the other with copies of documents relevant to the issues raised by any claim or counterclaim. Any dispute regarding discovery, or the relevance or scope thereof, shall be determined by the chair of the arbitration panel, which determination shall be conclusive. Any demand for arbitration must be filed within one (1) year after such dispute, claim or cause of action arose or shall be forever barred, regardless of any law or regulation to the contrary. The arbitrators shall not award consequential or punitive damages in any arbitration initiated under this section. Except as may be required by law, neither a party nor an arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration hereunder without the prior written consent of both Parties. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, 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 CONTRIBUTOR, TECHNICIAN OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CONTRIBUTOR.
If any term or provision of this Agreement is declared void or unenforceable in a particular situation, by any judicial or administrative authority, this declaration shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining terms and provisions hereof or the validity or enforceability of the offending term or provision in any other situation. To the extent possible the provision will be interpreted and enforced to the greatest extent legally permissible in order to effectuate the original intent, and if no such interpretation or enforcement is legally permissible, shall be deemed severed from the Agreement.
Articles 3, 5, 6, 7, and 8 of this Agreement and all Sections thereof, shall survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement, regardless of the cause for termination or expiration, and shall remain valid and binding indefinitely.
The Article and Section headings contained in this Agreement are included for reference purposes only and shall not affect the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement.
8.5. No Waiver.
The failure or delay of either party to exercise or enforce any rights or remedy granted hereunder or to take action against the other party in the event of any breach hereunder shall not be deemed a waiver by that party of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial exercise of such right or remedy shall prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.
