we never have a dispute, but if we do, you and we agree to try for 60 days to
resolve it informally. You may send us the details of your concern to
email@example.com. However, if Habeas is not able to informally
resolve your complaint, you and Habeas agree to individual binding
arbitration under JAMS Alternative Dispute resolution (“JAMS”) and the
Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), and not to sue in court in front of a
judge or jury. The arbitration will be conducted under the JAMS Commercial
Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related
Disputes and the arbitrator’s decision will be final except for a limited right
of review under the FAA. The following applies to any arbitration proceedings
between you and Habeas:
moving an unresolved informal dispute into arbitration, you must first send us
a Notice of Dispute describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and
the specific relief sought. This notice may be sent via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
arbitration must be commenced by filing a demand for arbitration with JAMS within ONE (1) YEAR from when it
first could be filed. Otherwise, it is permanently barred. If applicable law
prohibits a one-year limitation period for asserting claims, any claim must be
asserted within the shortest time period permitted by applicable law.
feasible, the arbitration will be held telephonically unless the arbitrator
finds good cause to hold an in-person hearing instead. You may choose the
location of any in-person hearing from either your county of residence; or, if
you are a business, the county of your principal place of business; or, Habeas'
principal place of business in San Francisco, CA.
enforcement of the arbitrator’s award will be controlled by and conducted in
conformity with the FAA. Judgment upon any award may be entered in any court

following EXCEPTIONS will apply to the resolution of disputes between

action in small claims court in King County, WA. Any small claims court action
must be filed within one year from when it first could be filed. Otherwise, the
claim is permanently barred.
relief. Habeas may bring a lawsuit against you in any court of
competent jurisdiction solely for injunctive relief to stop any
unauthorized use or abuse of the Services, or any intellectual property
infringement. In these instances, Habeas may seek injunctive relief
without first engaging in the informal dispute resolution or arbitration
not Covered by Arbitration. In the event that arbitration is found
to be inapplicable or unenforceable for any reason, or if you exercise the
option to opt-out of arbitration as provided below, the claim at issue will be
brought under judicial proceedings in federal or state courts in San Francisco,
CA, and you and Habeas consent to personal jurisdiction and exclusive venue in
to Opt Out of Arbitration. You may opt out of this agreement to
arbitrate. If you do so, neither you nor Habeas can require the other to
participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, you must notify us in
writing within 30 days of the date that you first became subject to the
arbitration provision in these Terms. To opt out you must send us a clear
statement that you want to opt out of arbitration, along with your name,
residence or business address, and the email address associated with your
account to: email@example.com
ACTIONS: You may only bring individual claims. Under no circumstances are you
allowed to bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class. Class
action lawsuits, class-wide arbitrations, private attorney-general actions, and
any other proceedings where someone acts in a representative capacity are not
allowed. Any combining of individual proceedings must have the consent of all

any of these Terms, Habeas reserves the right, without notice and in its sole
discretion, to terminate your license to use the Services, and to block or
prevent your access to and use of the Services. Habeas reserves the right to
refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time. In the event of
termination of access to the Services for any reason, you have no right to

Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Habeas with respect to
the subject matter of these Terms, and supersede and replace any prior version
of the Terms. These Terms create no third party beneficiary rights.
Waiver, severability, and assignment
Habeas' failure to enforce a provision of these Terms is not
a waiver of its right to do so later. If any provision of these Terms is found
unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect
and an enforceable Term or Terms will be substituted reflecting our intent as
closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms,
and any attempt to do so will be void. Habeas may assign its rights to any of
its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business
associated with the Services.
