If you are a resident of the United States:
YOU AND SVOOZ AGREE TO SUBMIT ANY AND ALL DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE (A “DISPUTE”) TO BINDING ARBITRATION. To the maximum extent allowed by applicable law, you and Svooz agrees that any disputes arising from or related to your use of the Services (a“Dispute”) will be resolved by binding arbitration pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act (Title 9 of the United States Code), which shall govern the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration agreement (“Arbitration Agreement”). In arbitration, Disputes are resolved by a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, discovery is more limited than in court, and the arbitrator’s decision is subject to limited review by courts. The arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court, such as monetary damages, injunctive relief, and declaratory relief. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Such dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a course, consolidated
or representative actions. Except where prohibited, we and you agree to submit to the personal and exclusive arbitration of Disputes relating to your overall use of the Services under the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. Please see www.adr.org for more information about arbitration.
Any arbitration between you and us, to the extent necessary, will be conducted remotely as provided below.
The arbitration will be conducted in English. A single independent and impartial arbitrator will be appointed pursuant to the rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator will determine all issues regarding the enforceability, interpretation, scope, and application of this Arbitration Agreement (including”gateway” issues of arbitrability, whether the Arbitration Agreement is unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration), and these Terms, except that a court may resolve any question about the validity or enforceability of the class action waiver set forth in this Arbitration Agreement. The term”Dispute” and the necessity to arbitrate will be widely interpreted.
Both you and we agree to comply with the following principles, which are intended to streamline the dispute resolution process and reduce the costs and burdens for everyone involved:
– The arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific way to be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration;
– The arbitration will not require any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing by the parties; and
– Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Barring extraordinary circumstances, the arbitrator will issue his or her decision within 120 days from the date the arbitrator is appointed. The arbitrator may extend this time limit for an additional 30 days in the interests of justice. All arbitration proceedings will be closed to the public and confidential and all records relating thereto will be permanently sealed, except as necessary to obtain court confirmation of the arbitration award.
You also acknowledge and understand that, with respect to any dispute with us arising from or relating to your choice to Keep an account, use or access the Services:
– You are giving up your right to have a trial by jury;
– You’re giving up your right to function as a representative, as a private attorney general, or in any other representative capacity, or to participate as a member of a class of claimants, in any litigation involving any such dispute; and
– You have to file any claim within one (1) year after such claim arose or it is forever barred.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be regulated by the American Arbitration Association’s rules. Svooz will reimburse you for those fees up to $5,000, unless the arbitrator decides your claims are frivolous. Likewise, Svooz will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator decides your claims are frivolous.
NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, YOU MAY CHOOSE TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM IN COURT AND NOT BY ARBITRATION IF YOU OPT OUT OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE EARLIER OF: (1) THE DATE YOU ACCEPT THESE TERMS, OR (2) THE DATE YOU FIRST AGREED OR ASSENTED TO AN AGREEMENT WITH MYFITNESS PAL THAT CONTAINED AN ARBITRATION PROVISION.
The opt-out notice must state that you don’t agree to this Arbitration Agreement and must include your name, address, phone number and email address. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, and failure to comply with this process and the applicable deadline automatically will render the opt-out notice null and void. If you opt out of this arbitration provision, all other parts of the Arbitration Agreement will continue to apply.
Whether this arbitration provision is found to be null and void, then all disputes arising under the Terms between us will be subject to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts situated in New York, New York, and you and we hereby submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of these courts. You and Svooz agree that if for any reason a Dispute profits in court rather than arbitration: (1) you and Svooz waive any right to a jury trial; (2) the Dispute will proceed solely on an individual, non-class, non-representative foundation; and (3) neither you nor Svooz might be a class representative or class member or otherwise participate in any class, representative, merged, or private attorney general proceeding.
This agreement to arbitrate will not preclude you or Svooz from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration, including without limit orders to remain a court action, compel arbitration or confirm an arbitral award, from a court of competent jurisdiction. Furthermore, this agreement to arbitrate will not preclude you or Svooz from (i) applying to the appropriate court of competent jurisdiction for a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, or other interim or conservatory relief, as necessary, or (ii) seeking relief in any state or federal court for disputes related to a violation or possible violation of Svooz’s intellectual property rights.
If You are a resident of the European Union: Notwithstanding anything in these Terms to the contrary, if there is a dispute that you and Svooz can’t solve, you have the right to submit a complaint through http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr.

– In addition, nothing in these Terms limits your rights to bring an action against Svooz from the local courts of your place of domicile. All disputes arising under the conditions between you and Svooz will be subject to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in your place of domicile, or the courts situated in the Netherlands, and you and we hereby submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of these courts.
If You are a resident of Finland: Notwithstanding anything in these Terms to the contrary, if there’s a dispute that you and Svooz can’t resolve, you have the right to submit a complaint to the local Consumer Disputes Board or other corresponding body.
If You are a resident of Denmark: Notwithstanding anything in these Terms to the contrary, if there is a dispute that you and Svooz cannot solve, you have the right to submit a complaint to the Danish Competition and Consumer Authority (Konkurrence- og Forbrugerstyrelsen, Center for Klageløsning, Carl Jacobsens Vej 35, 2500 Valby, mail: email@example.com).
If You’re a resident of South Korea: Notwithstanding anything in these Terms to the contrary, nothing in these Terms restricts your rights to bring an action against Svooz in the local courts of your place of domicile.
