NEITHER HUDDLE NOR ITS LICENSORS GUARANTEE OR WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES OR THE CONTENT (A) WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS; (B) WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR VIRUS- OR ERROR-FREE; (C) WILL OPERATE OR BE COMPATIBLE WITH ANY OTHER APPLICATION OR ANY PARTICULAR SYSTEM OR DEVICE; (D) WILL BE CORRECT, ACCURATE, TIMELY, OTHERWISE RELIABLE OR APPROPRIATE FOR YOUR USE; OR (E) CAN OR WILL BE CORRECTED IF DEFECTS ARE IDENTIFIED.

PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. HOWEVER, THE LIMITATIONS ABOVE WILL APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

8.          Limitation of Liability

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL HUDDLE OR ITS LICENSORS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, REVENUE OR INCOME, OR FOR ANY INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OF USE OR THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

9.          Indemnification

You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold us and our partners, agents, officers, directors, employees, subcontractors, successors, assigns, third party suppliers, and service providers harmless from any liability, loss, claim, and expense, including reasonable attorney’s fees related to your violation of these Terms of Service or use of the Services.

10.       Arbitration

10.1.   Binding Arbitration. Any dispute or claim arising in any way from your use of the Services, except for disputes relating to the infringement of our intellectual property rights or the access or use of the Services in violation of these Terms of Service, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, but you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify.

10.2.   No Judge or Jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Terms of Use as a court would.

10.3.   Arbitrator and Rules. The arbitration will be conducted before a neutral single arbitrator, whose decision will be final and binding, and the arbitral proceedings shall be governed by the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules, Consumer Due Process Protocol, and Supplementary Procedures for Resolution of Consumer­ Related Disputes. These rules can be found on the AAA website at www.adr.org.

10.4.   Starting an Arbitration. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send us a notice of dispute, in writing, setting forth your name, address and contact information, the facts of the dispute and relief requested. You must send your notice of legal dispute to hello@onehuddle.com. Huddle will send any notice of dispute to you at the contact information we have for you.

10.5.   Format of Proceedings. The arbitration shall be conducted, at the option of the party seeking relief, by telephone, online, or based solely on written submissions.

10.6.   Fees. If you initiate arbitration, your arbitration fees will be limited to the filing fee set forth in the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules. Unless the arbitrator finds the arbitration was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, Huddle will pay all other AAA and arbitrator’s fees and expenses.

10.7.   Individual Basis. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you and Huddle each agree that any dispute resolution proceeding will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and Huddle each waive any right to a jury trial. As a result, PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE OR LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN ANY FORUM WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.

10.8.   Limitation Period. In no event shall any claim, action or proceeding by you or Huddle be instituted more than one (1) year after the cause of action arose.

10.9.   Enforcement. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The United Nations Conventions on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall have no applicability.

10.10.  Invalidity. If a court of competent jurisdiction finds the foregoing arbitration provisions invalid or inapplicable, you and Huddle each agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Federal and State courts located in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and you and Huddle each agree to submit to the exercise of personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any applicable dispute or claim.

10.11.           Opting Out. If you do not want to arbitrate disputes with Huddle and you are an individual, you may opt out of this arbitration agreement by sending an email to hello@onehuddle.com within thirty (30) days of the first of the date you access or use the Services.

If any provision of these Terms of Use is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms of Use will remain in full force and effect. The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for in these Terms of Use shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights under these Terms of Use.

11.4.   Injunctive Relief. You agree that a breach of these Terms of Use will cause irreparable injury to Huddle for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and Huddle shall be entitled to equitable relief in addition to any remedies it may have hereunder or at law without a bond, other security or proof of damages.

11.5.   Assignment. These Terms of Use will inure to the benefit of and will be binding upon each party’s successors and assigns.

Any attempt by you to assign these Terms of Use without the written consent of Huddle shall be null and void.

11.6.   Independent Contractors. Nothing contained in these Terms of Use will be deemed to constitute either party as the agent or representative of the other party or both parties as joint venturers or partners for any purpose.

11.7.   Modifications. We may occasionally update these Terms of Use. When we do update these Terms of Use, we will also revise the “Last Updated” date at the top of these Terms of Use. If we make changes to these Terms of Use we may also send emails to our users who have created an account containing a link to the revised Terms of Use.
