THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION 14 WILL APPLY EVEN IF ANY LIMITED REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
  1. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
    15.1 Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and BigSpring in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, and except as described in Section 15.2, you and BigSpring agree that every dispute arising in connection with these Terms or the Service will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND BIGSPRING ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
    15.2 Exceptions. Despite the provisions of Section 15.1, nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court; (b) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, central, state, or local agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration; or (d) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
    15.3 Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and BigSpring will be settled under the Federal Arbitration Act, if you reside in the United States of America or under the Arbitration and Concillation Act, 1996 if you reside in India and administered under the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce Court of Arbitration (collectively, “ICC Rules”) as modified by these Terms. The ICC Rules and filing forms are available online at iccwbo.org, or by contacting BigSpring. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
    15.4 Notice of Arbitration; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified mail or overnight delivery service (signature required) or, only if that other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail (“Notice of Arbitration”). BigSpring’s address for Notice is: BigSpring Services Private Limited ,GA, Sherbanoo CHS LTD, Pil Court, 111 Maharshi Karve Road, Churchgate, Mumbai 400020 . The Notice of Arbitration must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice of Arbitration is received, you or BigSpring may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or BigSpring must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, BigSpring will pay you the highest of the following: (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any; (ii) the last written settlement amount offered by BigSpring in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award; or (iii) $10,000.
    15.5 Fees. If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, BigSpring will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $10,000, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the ICC Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Singapore unless you are accessing the Services from India, in which case such location to be agreed upon shall be in Mumbai, India, but if the claim is for USD 10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (a) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (b) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (c) by an in-person hearing as established by the ICC Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, then the payment of all fees will be governed by the ICC Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse BigSpring for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the ICC Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
    15.6 No Class Actions. YOU AND BIGSPRING 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. Further, unless both you and BigSpring agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
    15.7  Modifications to this Arbitration Provision. If BigSpring makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to BigSpring’s address for Notice of Arbitration, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to BigSpring’s address for Notice of Arbitration, in which case your account with BigSpring will be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected will survive.
    15.8  Enforceability. If Section 15.6 is found to be unenforceable or if the entirety of this Section 15 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 15 will be null and void and, in that case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 16.1 will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms.
  1. General Terms. These Terms, together with the Privacy Policy and any other agreements expressly incorporated by reference into these Terms, are the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between you and BigSpring regarding your use of the Service. You may not assign or transfer these Terms or your rights under these Terms, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. We may assign these Terms at any time without notice or consent. The failure to require performance of any provision will not affect our right to require performance at any other time after that, nor will a waiver by us of any breach or default of these Terms, or any provision of these Terms, be a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself. Use of section headers in these Terms is for convenience only and will not have any impact on the interpretation of any provision. Throughout these Terms the use of the word “including” means “including but not limited to”. If any part of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the unenforceable part will be given effect to the greatest extent possible, and the remaining parts will remain in full force and effect.
    16.1 Governing Law. These Terms are governed by the laws of Singapore without regard to conflict of law principles.
