You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in California; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over Ovalmint, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. Any claim or dispute between you and Ovalmint that arises in whole or in part from the Service shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction located in Fresno County, California, unless submitted to arbitration as set forth in the following paragraph.
For any claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) under this Agreement where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. The party electing such arbitration shall initiate the arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution ("ADR") provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, as selected by the party initiating the arbitration; b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Class waiver and waiver of jury trial
You acknowledge and understand that, with respect to any dispute with the Released Parties arising out of or relating to your use of the Service or this Agreement:
Ovalmint may provide notifications, whether such notifications are required by law or are for marketing or other business related purposes, to you via email notice, written or hard copy notice, or through conspicuous posting of such notice on our website, as determined by Ovalmint in our sole discretion. Ovalmint reserves the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to our Users, provided that you may opt out of certain means of notification as described in this Agreement. Ovalmint is not responsible for any automatic filtering you or your network provider may apply to email notifications we send to the email address you provide us. We recommend that you add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email address book to help ensure you receive email notifications from us.
This Agreement, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Ovalmint in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Ovalmint concerning the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect.
A party's waiver of a breach or a default by the other party does not constitute a waiver of any succeeding breach of the same or any other provision. A party's delay or omission to exercise or avail itself of any right, power, or privilege will not operate as a waiver of any right, power or privilege by such party. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with regard to the subject matter of the Agreement. The parties may not change the terms of this Agreement except by a writing signed by both parties.
We reserve the right to amend this Agreement at any time without notice. Please refer to this policy on a regular basis for any changes. If a significant change is made, we will notify you by email if you have registered an account with us. We reserve the right to change, add or discontinue services, and we will publish these changes on the site as well. Your compliance with the modified terms will be demonstrated by your continued use of the site.
Electronic contracting and notices
This contract and any supplemental terms, policies, rules and guidelines posted on the Site and the Services constitute the entire agreement between you and us and supersede all previous written or oral agreements. If any part of these General Terms of Service is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.
Term and termination
In case of our paid services, the Term of the Service granted herein shall be for the monthly Subscription Period. Unless written notice is received within 7 days prior to the expiration of the Term, the Term will automatically renew for the same term period set forth at the start of the subscription. The Company at its discretion may elect to increase the renewal subscription by up to 25% per month. Upon termination of the Subscription Period, Subscriber must discontinue all use of the Service. If you fail to comply with any provision of the Agreement at any time, termination is automatic, without notice and without refund from the Company, and without the necessity for recourse to any judicial authority. Upon termination for default, you must cease all use of the Service. The Company may also enforce its other legal and equitable rights. You understand and agree that cancellation of your Subscription is your sole right and remedy with respect to any dispute with the Company.
