Agreement to Arbitrate and Waiver of Class Action Claims

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.

If a dispute arises between you and fortyonwards.com (Xempli Pty Ltd), our goal is to provide you a neutral and cost effective means to resolve the dispute quickly. To that end, you agree to first contact us. If that does not resolve the issue, then you and fortyonwards.com (Xempli.com) agree to the following methods to resolve any dispute or claim.

GENERAL

YOU AGREE WITH XEMPLI PTY LTD THAT, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU AND XEMPLI PTY LTD WILL RESOLVE THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION ANY “ARBITRAL CLAIM,” which is any claim or dispute you have against or with Xempli Pty Ltd or Xempli Pty Ltd Indemnified Parties, or any claim we have against or with you, arising out of or relating to this Agreement to Arbitrate (including its formation, enforceability, performance, and breach), fortyonwards.com, the parties’ relationship with each other, or any advertising relating to Xempli Pty Ltd. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this Agreement to Arbitration, including any claim that all or any part of this Agreement to Arbitrate is void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration, and shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. Arbitration is different from court; the rules, including discovery, are different and no judge or jury is present at an arbitration. The award is final and binding and subject only to very limited review by a court. The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they may have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited.

Exceptions

Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all arbitral claims through arbitration, this agreement to arbitrate does not preclude you from bringing a claim in small claims court on an individual basis, if your claim qualifies. It also does not preclude either party from bringing claims in a court of law to enforce intellectual property rights; or for fortyonwards.com to bring claims in a court of law to prevent or remedy unfair competition, misappropriation of trade secrets, unauthorized access, fraud or computer fraud, and/or industrial espionage. Neither party is precluded from seeking relief in a court located in Sydney, Australia for provisional remedies, including temporary restraining orders, preliminary injunctions, and receiverships, pending arbitration or comprehensive litigation, to the extent authorized above.

Class Action Waiver

You and Xempli Pty Ltd agree that each may bring claims against the other only in your or its individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. You further agree with Xempli Pty Ltd that neither you nor fortyonwards.com will join any arbitral claim with the claim of any other person or entity in a lawsuit, arbitration or other proceeding; that no arbitral claim will be resolved on a class-wide basis; that neither you nor Xempli Pty Ltd will assert an arbitral claim in a representative capacity on behalf of anyone else; and both parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then this Agreement to Arbitrate shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.

Canceling Your Subscription

While we hope you enjoy using any Material relating to our Site, you may cancel your subscription at any time by contacting us through our Site, or using the unsubscribe link found in our Newsletters/Emails. We reserve the right to limit or terminate your subscription if we believe you are in violation of these Terms of Use.

GST

Unless stated to be otherwise, charges referred to for any goods or services supplied (or offered for supply) on our Site are stated inclusive of GST. Where GST applies to any supply made to you, we will deduct the applicable GST and issue you with a Tax Invoice. GST means the Australian goods and services tax charged under A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999 (“Act”). Tax Invoice means tax invoice as defined by the Act.

Severability

If any provision of the Conditions is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of the Conditions, which shall remain in full force and effect.

No waiver

No waiver of any term of the Conditions shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term. Any failure to assert any right under the Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of such right.

Affirmation regarding age

By using our Site, you affirm that you are 18 years or over, or otherwise possess legal parental or guardian consent.

Applicable law

These Conditions shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of New South Wales, Australia. You consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in New South Wales Courts to determine any matter or dispute which arises under the Conditions.
