DISPUTE RESOLUTION ‚Äď ARBITRATION ONLY

Please read the following paragraphs carefully because they require You to arbitrate disputes with Storyboard and limit the manner in which You can seek relief from Storyboard.

  1. Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. All claims and disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or the use of the Services that cannot be resolved in the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal will be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis, except that You and Storyboard are not required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents.
  2. Arbitration rules. The International Arbitration Act 1974(Cth) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this dispute-resolution provision. Arbitration will be initiated through the Australian Centre for International Commercial Arbitration (‚ÄúACICA‚ÄĚ). If the ACICA is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. The rules of the arbitral forum will govern all aspects of this arbitration, except to the extent those rules conflict with these Terms. ¬†ACICA¬†Arbitration Rules 2016 and¬†ACICA Expedited Arbitration Rules 2016 governing the arbitration are available online at¬†org.au¬†or by calling the ACICA at +61 (0) 2 9223 1099. The arbitration will be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator. Any claims or disputes where the total amount sought is less than $10,000 AUD may be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief. For claims or disputes where the total amount sought is $10,000 AUD or more, the right to a hearing will be determined by the arbitral forum’s rules. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
  3. Additional rules for non-appearance arbitration. If non-appearance arbitration is elected, the arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online, written submissions or any combination of the three; the specific manner will be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration will not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless the parties mutually agree otherwise.
  4. Authority of the arbitrator. The arbitrator will decide the jurisdiction of the arbitration and the rights and liabilities, if any, of You and Storyboard. The dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator will have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim or dispute. The arbitrator will have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules and the Terms. The arbitrator will issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon You and Storyboard.
  5. Waiver of jury trial. You and Storyboard waive any constitutional and statutory rights to go to take a dispute to court. You and Storyboard elect to have claims and disputes resolved by arbitration. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In any litigation between You and Storyboard over whether to vacate or enforce an arbitration award then clause 10 and 12 of these Terms will apply.
  6. Waiver of class or consolidated actions. All claims and disputes within the scope of this arbitration agreement must be arbitrated or litigated on an individual basis and not on a class basis. Claims of more than one customer or user cannot be arbitrated or litigated jointly or be consolidated with those of any other customer or user. If, however, this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither You nor we are entitled to arbitration: instead all claims and disputes will be resolved in a court as set out in clause 10 and 12 of these Terms.
  7. Confidentiality. No part of the procedures will be open to the public or the media. All evidence discovered or submitted at the hearing is confidential and may not be disclosed, except by written agreement of the parties, under a court order or unless required by law. Notwithstanding the above, no party will be prevented from submitting to a court of law any information needed to enforce this arbitration agreement, to enforce an arbitration award or to seek injunctive or equitable relief.
  8. Right to waive. Any rights and limitations set out in this arbitration agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver will not waive or affect any other portion of this arbitration agreement.
  9. Opt-out. You may opt out of this arbitration agreement. If You do so, neither You nor Storyboard can force the other to arbitrate. To opt out, You must notify Storyboard in writing no later than 30 days after first becoming subject to this arbitration agreement. Your notice must include Your name and address, Your Storyboard username and the email address You used to set up Your Storyboard account (if You have one), and an unequivocal statement that You want to opt out of this arbitration agreement. You must send Your opt-out notice to this address: Storyboard (insert address here).
  10. Small claims court. Notwithstanding the above, either You or Storyboard may bring an individual action in the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal.
  11. Arbitration Agreement survival. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of Your relationship with Storyboard.

Exclusive venue

To the extent the parties are permitted under these Terms to initiate litigation in a court, both You and Storyboard agree that all claims and disputes arising out of or relating to the Terms or the use of the Services will be litigated exclusively in the relevant court in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. You and Storyboard consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of these courts.

Choice of law

The laws of Australia and Queensland govern these Terms and any disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or their subject matter, including tort claims.

Severability

If any provision of these Terms is found unenforceable, then that provision will be severed from these Terms and not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

Additional terms for specific Services

Given the breadth of our Services, we sometimes need to craft additional terms and conditions for specific Services. Those additional terms and conditions, which will be available with the relevant Services, then become part of Your agreement with us if You use those Services.

Final terms

These Terms make up the entire agreement between You and Storyboard and supersede any prior agreements between You and Storyboard.

These Terms do not create or confer any third-party beneficiary rights.

If we do not enforce a provision in these Terms, it will not be considered a waiver.

We reserve all rights not expressly granted to You.

You may not transfer any of Your rights or obligations under these Terms without our consent.

These Terms were written in English and if the translated version of these Terms conflicts with the English version, the English version will control.
