Please read this Agreement carefully to ensure that you understand each provision. This Agreement contains a mandatory individual arbitration and class action/jury trial waiver provision that requires the use of arbitration on an individual basis to resolve disputes, rather than jury trials or class actions.

User hereby consents to receive communications from R3 Collaboratives electronically. R3 Collaboratives will communicate with User by e-mail or by posting notices on the Site. User agrees that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that R3 Collaboratives provides to User electronically satisfy any legal requirements that such communications be in writing.
18.1 Waiver. The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder.
18.2 Force Majeure. R3 Collaboratives shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond R3 Collaboratives' reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation (including "line-noise" interference).
18.3 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
18.4 Assignability. This Agreement is not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by User except with R3 Collaboratives' prior written consent. R3 Collaboratives may transfer, assign or delegate this Agreement and its rights and obligations without consent.
18.5 Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of California, as if made within California between two residents thereof, and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state and Federal courts located in the City and County of San Francisco, California. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree that the City and County of San Francisco, California is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable
18.6 Arbitration. Read this section carefully because it requires the parties to arbitrate their disputes and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from R3 Collaboratives. For any dispute with R3 Collaboratives, you agree to first contact us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that R3 Collaboratives has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree that any disputes arising with respect to this Agreement shall be settled by arbitration in accordance with the rules and procedures of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service, Inc. ("JAMS"). The arbitrator shall be selected by joint agreement of the parties. In the event the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator within thirty (30) days of the initiating party providing the other party with written notice that it plans to seek arbitration, the parties shall each select an arbitrator affiliated with JAMS, which arbitrators shall jointly select a third such arbitrator to resolve the dispute. If you are using the Service for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using the Service for non-commercial purposes: (i) JAMS may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. The written decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties and enforceable in any court. The arbitration proceeding shall take place in San Francisco, California, using the English language.
18.7 Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver. With respect to all persons and entities, regardless of whether they have obtained or used the Service for personal, commercial or other purposes, all claims must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective action, private attorney general action or other representative proceeding. This waiver applies to class arbitration, and, unless we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s Claims. You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and R3 Collaboratives are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or other representative proceeding of any kind.
18.8 Entire Agreement. Both parties agree that this Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, and that all modifications must be in a writing signed by both parties, except as otherwise provided herein.
18.9 Independent Contractor. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of this Agreement and User does not have any authority of any kind to bind R3 Collaboratives in any respect whatsoever.

If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, R3 Collaboratives may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at R3 Collaboratives' discretion.
