a. Subscription Upgrades and Downgrades. At any time during your Subscription Period, you may choose to upgrade your Subscription to a higher tier Subscription Plan or downgrade your subscription to a lower tiered Subscription Plan, as applicable. If you change your Subscription Plan in the middle of your Subscription Period, your Subscription Fee will be prorated over the course of the remainder of your Subscription Period to account for the difference in cost between your current Subscription Plan and your new Subscription Plan. Upon finalizing a change in your Subscription Plan, your access to Platform Content will be adjusted to account for your new Subscription Plan features. This may mean that you will lose access to certain Platform Content and Subscription features if you downgrade your Subscription Plan.  

b.

Our notice to you will be similar in form to that described above. If you and Atavus cannot reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after such Notice is received, then either party may submit the dispute to binding arbitration administered by JAMS or, under the limited circumstances set forth above, in court. All disputes submitted to JAMS will be resolved through confidential, binding arbitration.  Arbitration proceedings will be held in Seattle Washington, in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“JAMS Rules”).  The most recent version of the JAMS Rules are available on the JAMS website and are hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the JAMS Rules or waive your opportunity to read the JAMS Rules and waive any claim that the JAMS Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason.

You and Atavus agree that these Subscription Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 11 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court, including the power to determine the question of arbitrability. The arbitrator may conduct only an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.

The arbitrator, Atavus, and you will maintain the confidentiality of any arbitration proceedings, judgments and awards, including, but not limited to, all information gathered, prepared and presented for purposes of the arbitration or related to the dispute(s) therein. The arbitrator will have the authority to make appropriate rulings to safeguard confidentiality, unless the law provides to the contrary. The duty of confidentiality does not apply to the extent that disclosure is necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy or in connection with a judicial challenge to an arbitration award or its enforcement, or to the extent that disclosure is otherwise required by law or judicial decision.

You and Atavus agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and Atavus will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Company, Atavus will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and Atavus agree that the state or federal courts of the State of [state] and the United States sitting in [county, state] have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.

Any claim arising out of or related to these Subscription Terms or our Platform, Platform Content, or Services must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, the claim is permanently barred, which means that you and Atavus will not have the right to assert the claim.

You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within 30 days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 11 by emailing us at contact@atavus.comIn order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and address and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve disputes in accordance with this Section 11.

If any portion of this Section 11 is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, (a) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from these Terms; (b) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Section 11  or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Section 11; and (c) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Further, if any part of this Section 11is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking public injunctive relief, that provision will have no effect to the extent such relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this Section 11 will be enforceable

12. Severability. If any provision of these Subscription Terms shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
