15. Applicable Law

The Website is operated from Hong Kong. User access to this Website is governed by all applicable Hong Kong laws. All information available on the Website may also be subject to the laws of the country where you reside. Access in countries where the information, services or products provided on the Website are illegal is prohibited. By using this Website, regardless of where you live in the world, you consent to have your personal data transferred to and processed and collected in Hong Kong in compliance with the Dropsafe Privacy Policy. These Terms of Use will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Hong Kong, without giving effect to any conflict of laws rules or provisions. If any dispute arises relating in any way to the use of the Website, the services provided through the Website or to these Terms of Use, the parties will attempt to resolve any claim or dispute through negotiation with persons fully authorized to resolve the dispute. If the parties are unable to resolve the dispute through negotiation within a reasonable time after written notice from one party to the other that a dispute exists, the dispute shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of  Hong Kong.

16. Arbitration Agreement and Waiver of Certain Rights

By accessing or using the Website, you agree: (i) that any and all disputes you may have with, or claims you may have against the Dropsafe and its affiliates relating to, arising out of or connected in any way with (a) the Website, (b) the services or products provided through the Website, (c) these Terms of Use, or (d) the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate (a “Claim”), will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration in accordance with the Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA Rules”). The arbitration will be heard and determined by a single arbitrator. The arbitrator’s decision in any such arbitration will be final and binding upon the parties and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties agree that the arbitration will be kept confidential and that the existence of the proceeding and any element of it will not be disclosed beyond the arbitration proceedings, except as may be required by applicable law.

If you demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Dropsafe will pay as much of the administrative costs and arbitrator’s fees required for the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the cost of the arbitration from being prohibitive. In the final award, the arbitrator may apportion the costs of arbitration and the compensation of the arbitrator among the parties in such amounts as the arbitrator deems appropriate.

This arbitration agreement does not preclude you from seeking action by federal, state, or local government agencies. You and Dropsafe also have the right to bring qualifying claims in small claims court. In addition, you and Dropsafe retain the right to apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for provisional relief, including pre-arbitral attachments or preliminary injunctions, and any such request shall not be deemed incompatible with these Terms of Use, nor a waiver of the right to have disputes submitted to arbitration as provided in these Terms of Use.

Neither you nor Dropsafe may act as a class representative or private attorney general, nor participate as a member of a class of claimants, with respect to any Claim.  Claims may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis. The arbitrator can decide only your and/or Dropsafe’s individual Claims. The arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial.

THIS SECTION LIMITS CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM, THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN AAA RULES, AND THE RIGHT TO CERTAIN REMEDIES AND FORMS OF RELIEF.  OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU OR DROPSAFE WOULD HAVE IN COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. If any provision of this Section is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then that specific provision shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed, but the remainder of this Section will continue in full force and effect. This Section of the Terms of Use will survive the termination of your relationship with Dropsafe.

17. Other Provisions

 If any provision in the Terms of Use is held invalid, the remainder of the Terms of Use shall continue to be enforceable. If any provision in the Terms of Use is deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable, then that provision is deemed severable from the Terms of Use and the remaining provisions are still valid and enforceable. Under no circumstances will Dropsafe be held liable for any delay or failure in performance due in whole or in part to any acts of nature or other causes beyond its reasonable control. The failure of Dropsafe to enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Use will not prevent Dropsafe from enforcing such right or provision in the future. Dropsafe may assign its rights and obligations under these Terms of Use, including in connection with a merger, acquisition, a sale of assets or by operation of law.

18. Termination

Dropsafe reserves the right in its sole discretion to terminate your Account, delete your profile and any of your User Content and restrict your use of all or any part of the Website for any or no reason, without notice, and without liability to you or anyone else. Dropsafe also reserves the right to block users from certain IP addresses or device numbers and prevent access to the Website. You understand and agree that some of your User Content that appears on the Website or on other websites (e.g., Facebook, Google, etc.), may continue to appear on the Website or on other websites even after the User Content is removed or your Account is terminated. The Terms of Use shall remain in effect even after your Account is terminated.
