12. Governing Law

Any claim relating to Hello Mom's Service shall be governed by the laws of the State of Minnesota without regard to its conflict of law provisions.

 

13. DISPUTES

Any dispute or claim arising out of or relating in any way to your use of any of the Hello Mom Technologies, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and Federal Arbitration Law apply to this Agreement.

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. An arbitrator, however, may award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including, without limitation, injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow these Terms and Conditions as a court would. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court, and allows for more limited discovery than in court. The arbitrator will decide all issues, including, without limitation, issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration provision.

To initiate an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to: HELLO MOM [ PO Box 18513, Minneapolis, MN 55418] Unless you and we agree otherwise, any arbitration will take place in the State of Minnesota, USA. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS in accordance with that organization's "Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures". If the arbitration is not possible through JAMS, it will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association (AAA) rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. JAMS rules and other information are available at https://www.jamsadr.com or by calling 800.352.5267. The AAA's rules and other information are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the applicable JAMS or AAA rules. 

We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial.

 

14. ASSIGNMENT

This Agreement may not be assigned, in whole or part, whether voluntarily, by operation of law or otherwise, by you without our prior written consent. Subject to the preceding sentence, the rights and liabilities of the parties hereto is binding on, and shall inure to the benefit of, the parties and their respective successors and assigns. Any attempted assignment other than in accordance with this section shall be null and void.

 

15. SEVERABILITY

If the application of any provision of this Agreement to any particular facts or circumstances shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable by an arbitrator or tribunal, then (a) the validity and enforceability of such provision as applied to any other particular facts or circumstances and the validity of other provisions of this Agreement shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby, and (b) such provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent possible so as to effect the intent of the parties and reformed without further action by the parties to the extent necessary to make such provision valid and enforceable.

 

16. RELATIONSHIP OF THE PARTIES

Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be deemed or construed as creating a joint venture, partnership, agency, employment or fiduciary relationship between the parties. Neither party nor their agents have any authority of any kind to bind the other party in any respect whatsoever, and the relationship of the parties is, and at all times shall continue to be, that of independent contractors.

 

17. FORCE MAJEURE

We shall not be responsible or have any liability for any delay or failure to perform to the extent due to unforeseen circumstances or causes beyond its reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of God, earthquake, fire, flood, embargoes, labor disputes and strikes, riots, war, novelty of product manufacture or other unanticipated product development problems, and acts of civil and military authorities.

 

18. ENTIRE AGREEMENT

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties concerning the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous representations, discussions, proposals, negotiations, conditions, agreements and communications, whether oral or written, between the parties relating to the subject matter of this Agreement and all past courses of dealing or industry custom. No amendment or modification of any provision of this Agreement shall be effective unless in writing and signed by a duly authorized signatory of HELLO MOM and you.
