We may amend, modify, change, add or remove portions of this Agreement at any time without notice to you by posting a revised version on the Site and/or by emailing you.

TERM AND TERMINATION
You may terminate your use of the Site at any time and for any or no reason. Factal has the right (at its sole discretion) for any reason to (i) block your email or IP address, or otherwise terminate your access to or use of the Site, or (ii) remove and discard any content submitted to Factal or displayed anywhere on the Site. Factal’s rights survive the termination of this Agreement.
GOVERNING LAW AND ARBITRATION
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware without giving effect to any principles that may provide the application of the law of another jurisdiction. Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be settled by binding arbitration before a single arbitrator in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and unappealable. The arbitration shall be conducted in Seattle, Washington, and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered into any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may seek injunctive or other equitable relief to protect our intellectual property rights in any court of competent jurisdiction.
If either Factal or you want to arbitrate a dispute, Factal and you each agree to send written notice to the other providing a description of the dispute, previous efforts to resolve the dispute, all supporting documents/information, and the proposed resolution. Notice to you will be sent to your billing address that you provided us and notice to us will be sent to: 600 1st Avenue, Suite 400, Seattle, WA 98104. Factal and you each agree to make attempts to resolve this dispute within forty-five (45) days of receipt of the notice to arbitrate. Thereafter, either Factal or you may submit the dispute to formal arbitration.
Both you and Factal each agree not to pursue arbitration on a consolidated or classwide basis. Both you and Factal each agree that any arbitration will be solely between you and Factal (not brought on behalf of or together with another individual’s claim). If for any reason any court or arbitrator hold that this restriction in unconscionable or unenforceable, then this agreement to arbitrate does not apply and the dispute must be brought in court.
NO CLASS ACTIONS
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE DISPUTES ON A CONSOLIDATED OR CLASSWIDE BASIS; THAT IS, TO EITHER JOIN A CLAIM WITH THE CLAIM OF ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY, OR ASSERT A CLAIM IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF ANYONE ELSE IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION, OR OTHER PROCEEDING.
NO TRIAL BY JURY
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION, OR OTHER PROCEEDING.
The failure of Factal to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement does not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should try to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of this Agreement remain in full force and effect. Factal may assign this Agreement in whole or in part in its sole discretion without your consent and without notice. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and Factal and governs your use of the Site, superseding any prior agreements between you and Factal regarding the subject matter hereof, provided, however, that if you and Factal have entered into a separate, written agreement then, in the event of any conflict, the terms of that separate written agreement shall govern. Nothing in this Agreement shall prevent us from complying with the law and applicable regulations.
