Arbitration, Termination, and General
These Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between you and Crisis Medicine and govern your use of the Service, superseding any prior agreements between you and Crisis Medicine with respect to the Service. These Terms of Service will be governed by the laws of the State of Oregon without regard to its conflict of law provisions. With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration, as set forth above, you and Crisis Medicine agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located within Portland, Oregon.
The failure of Crisis Medicine to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms of Service is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Service remain in full force and effect.
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or these Terms of Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records. You may not assign this Terms of Service without the prior written consent of Crisis Medicine, but Crisis Medicine may assign or transfer this Terms of Service, in whole or in part, without restriction. The section titles in these Terms of Service are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Notices to you may be made via either email or regular mail. The Service may also provide notices to you of changes to these Terms of Service or other matters by displaying notices or links to notices generally on the Service.
You agree Crisis Medicine, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate your account (or any part thereof) or use of the Service for any reason including, without limitation, for lack of use, or if Crisis Medicine believes you violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms of Service. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive or illegal activity that may be grounds for termination of your use of Service, may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. Crisis Medicine may also in its sole discretion and at any time discontinue providing the Service, or any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree any termination of your access to the Service under any provision of this Terms of Service may be effected without prior notice, and acknowledge and agree that Crisis Medicine may immediately deactivate or delete your account. Further, you agree that Crisis Medicine will not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your access to the Service.
Look: this is where most websites would put in a really long legal mumbo-jumbo section that benefits themselves. At Crisis Medicine, we want you to enjoy our product. If you feel you need to invoke our money-back guarantee, do so.
If you choose to progress to legal remedies beyond that, then we need to get into the tiny print: All disputes, claims, or controversies arising out of or relating to the Terms of Service or the Service that are not resolved by mutual agreement may be resolved by binding arbitration. Any arbitration will be held in Portland, Oregon, before a single arbitrator mutually agreed upon by the parties, unless specifically modified in the Terms of Service. If you need to go down this path, it has to begin within forty-five (45) days of the date on which a written demand for arbitration is filed by either party. The arbitrator will make a decision within sixty (60) days of the conclusion of the arbitration.
The arbitrator will not have the power to award damages in excess of the limitation on actual compensatory, direct damages set forth in the Terms of Service and may not do any tricky stuff to multiply actual damages, award punitive damages, or any other damages specifically excluded under the Terms of Service, and each party hereby irrevocably waives any claim to such damages. The arbitrator may assess costs and expenses (including the reasonable legal fees and expenses of the prevailing party) against any party. Any party refusing to comply with an order of the arbitrators will be liable for costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, incurred by the other party in enforcing the award. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the case of temporary or preliminary injunctive relief, any party may proceed in court without prior arbitration for the purpose of avoiding immediate and irreparable harm. The provisions of this arbitration section will be enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction, but jurisdiction is presumed to lie in Portland, Oregon, USA.
Notwithstanding the provisions of the introductory section above, if Crisis Medicine changes this ‘Arbitration’ section after the date you first accepted these Terms of Service (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms of Service ), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Date of Last Revision” date above. By rejecting any change, you agree you will arbitrate any dispute between you and Crisis Medicine in accordance with the provisions of this section as of the date you first accepted these Terms of Service (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms of Service).
