Applicable Law and Conflict Resolution

You consent and agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Boulder, Colorado. You also waive any objection to personal jurisdiction, venue, or the convenience of the forum.

Any dispute, claim, or controversy relating to the services, this agreement, or its breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this arbitration agreement, will be resolved through arbitration in Boulder, Colorado. The arbitration will be conducted by a single arbitrator, and the party initiating the arbitration may choose either JAMS or the American Arbitration Association for administration in accordance with their respective rules.

The arbitrator is prohibited from awarding consequential, indirect, exemplary, special, or incidental damages arising from or relating to your use of the services. This includes damages for loss of business profits, business interruption, loss of business information, or other financial losses. The arbitral award may be entered as a judgment in any court with jurisdiction. Each party will bear half of the costs and expenses of the arbitration, and each party will separately cover their own attorney’s fees and expenses. Despite the agreement to resolve disputes through arbitration, either party may initiate a legal action in a state or federal court in Boulder, Colorado to protect its intellectual property rights. However, this provision does not include disputes or claims within the jurisdiction of a small claims court.

Statute of Limitations. You must file any claim related to the services or these terms within six months from the start of the events giving rise to the claim, or you agree to waive that claim.
