By agreeing to the Terms, you agree that you are required to resolve any claim that you may have against Remotely on an individual basis in arbitration, as set forth in this agreement to arbitrate (“Arbitration Agreement”). This will preclude you from bringing any class, collective, or representative action against Remotely, and also preclude you from participating in or recovering relief under any current or future class, collective, consolidated, or representative action brought against Remotely by someone else.
Agreement to Binding Arbitration Between You and Remotely
You and Remotely agree that any dispute, claim or controversy between You and Remotely (each a “Claim” and collectively, “Claims”) shall be settled or resolved by binding arbitration solely between you and Remotely, and not in a court of law. Claims include, but are not limited to, any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to (a) these Terms or the existence, breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or (b) your access to or use of the Services at any time, whether before or after the date you agreed to the Terms.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, where you allege claims of sexual assault or sexual harassment occurring in connection with your use of the Services, you may elect to bring those claims in a court of competent jurisdiction instead of arbitration. Remotely does not waive the enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement as to any other provision, controversy, claim or dispute.
You acknowledge and agree that you and Remotely are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Unless both you and Remotely Remotelyotherwise agree in writing, any arbitration will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, collective, consolidated, or representative proceeding. However, you and Remotely each retain the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights.
Rules and Governing Law
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the "AAA Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
The parties agree that the arbitrator ("Arbitrator"), and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The Arbitrator shall also be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether the Terms are unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, or estoppel.
Notwithstanding any choice of law or other provision in the Terms, the parties agree and acknowledge that this Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. ("FAA"), will govern its interpretation and enforcement and proceedings pursuant thereto. It is the intent of the parties that the FAA and AAA Rules shall preempt all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA and AAA Rules are found to not apply to any issue that arises under this Arbitration Agreement or the enforcement thereof, then that issue shall be resolved under the laws of the state of California.
Unless you and Remotely agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings between the Remotely and you will take place in New York County, New York.
The Arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The Arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant's individual claim. An Arbitrator’s decision shall be final and binding on all parties. An Arbitrator’s decision and judgment thereon shall have no precedential or collateral estoppel effect. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys' fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. Remotely will not seek, and hereby waives all rights Remotely may have under applicable law to recover attorneys' fees and expenses if Remotely prevails in arbitration.
Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules.
Severability and Survival
If any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, (1) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from these Terms; (2) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to the Arbitration Agreement; and (3) 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.

REMOTELY SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, LIABILITY OR LOSSES ARISING OUT OF: (i) YOUR USE OF OR RELIANCE ON THE SERVICES OR YOUR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES; OR (ii) ANY TRANSACTION OR RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND ANY PARTICIPANT, EVEN IF REMOTELY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

You may not assign these Terms without Remotely's prior written approval. Remotely may assign these Terms without your consent to: (i) a subsidiary or affiliate; (ii) an acquirer of Remotely's equity, business or assets; or (iii) a successor by merger. Any purported assignment in violation of this section shall be void.
No Joint Venture
No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you, Remotely, or any Requester or Worker as a result of these Terms or use of the Services or Site.
Waiver and Severability
No waiver by Remotely of any term or condition set forth in these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of the Remotely to assert a right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
You agree that these Terms will not be construed against us by virtue of having drafted them. If any provision of these Terms is held by a court or other tribunal to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be struck and the remaining provisions shall be enforced to the fullest extent under law. Remotely’s failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by Remotely in writing. This provision shall not affect the Severability and Survivability section of the Arbitration Agreement of these Terms.
A printed version of these Terms and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
