Agreement to Arbitrate
You and Styleguide each agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Styleguide relating in any way to or arising out of this or previous versions of the User Agreement, your use of or access to Styleguide’s Services, or any products or services sold, offered, or purchased through Styleguide’s Services shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court. Alternatively, you may assert your claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. An arbitrator should apply the terms of the User Agreement as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to arbitrability, the scope or enforceability of this Agreement to Arbitrate, shall be for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a completed Notice of Dispute ("Notice") . The Notice to Styleguide should be sent to 14 Robinson Road #08-01A, Far East Finance Building Singapore 048545.
Styleguide will send any Notice to you to the physical address we have on file associated with your Styleguide account; it is your responsibility to keep your physical address up to date. All information called for in the Notice must be provided, including a description of the nature and basis of the claims the party is asserting and the relief sought.
If you and Styleguide are unable to resolve the claims described in the Notice within 30 days after the Notice is sent, you or Styleguide may initiate arbitration proceedings.
Any dispute, claim, difference or controversy arising out of, relating to or having any connection with this User Agreement, including any dispute as to its existence, validity, interpretation, performance, breach or termination or the consequences of its nullity shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration administered in Singapore
The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable law, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same Styleguide user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
If an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this Agreement to Arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall still apply.
If you are a new Styleguide user, you can choose to reject this agreement to arbitrate (“Opt-OUT”) by mailing us a written “Opt-out Notice”. The Opt- Out Notice must be postmarked no later than 30 days after the date you accept the user agreement for the first time.
You must mail the Opt-Out Notice to Styleguide at 14 Robinson Road #08-01A, Far East Finance Building Singapore 048545
Future Amendments to the Agreement to Arbitrate
Notwithstanding any provision in the User Agreement to the contrary, you and we agree that if we make any amendment to this Agreement to Arbitrate (other than an amendment to any notice address or site link provided herein) in the future, that amendment shall not apply to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against Styleguide prior to the effective date of the amendment.
The amendment shall apply to all other disputes or claims governed by the Agreement to Arbitrate that have arisen or may arise between you and Styleguide. We will notify you of amendments to this Agreement to Arbitrate by posting the amended terms on www.styleguide.com at least 30 days before the effective date of the amendments and by providing notice by email. If you do not agree to these amended terms, you may close your account within the 30 day period and you will not be bound by the amended terms.
Judicial Forum for Legal Disputes
Unless you and we agree otherwise, in the event that the Agreement to Arbitrate above is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute, either as a result of your decision to opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate or as a result of a decision by the arbitrator or a court order, you agree that any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and Styleguide must be resolved exclusively by court located in Singapore. You and Styleguide agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located in Singapore for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.
