You acknowledge and agree that you and APPOINTMENTNOTIFY are each waiving the right to a trial by jury. You further acknowledge and agree that you waive your right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and APPOINTMENTNOTIFY otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding.
In the event this “Arbitration” section is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this "Arbitration" section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, “Arbitration” section will survive termination of the Agreement.
This Agreement represents the complete agreement between you and APPOINTMENTNOTIFY concerning the Platform and supersedes all prior agreements and representations, warranties or understandings between you and APPOINTMENTNOTIFY (whether negligently or innocently made but excluding those made fraudulently), regarding the same subject matter. Except with respect to any HIPAA BAA entered into between you and APPOINTMENTNOTIFY, APPOINTMENTNOTIFY reserves the right to amend this Agreement at any time, at its sole discretion. If any part of the Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in effect. Any failure by us to enforce or exercise any provision of the Agreement or related rights shall not constitute a waiver of that right or provision.
APPOINTMENTNOTIFY may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, at any time. Notwithstanding, you may not assign, transfer or sublicense any or all of your rights or obligations under the Agreement without APPOINTMENTNOTIFY's express prior written consent. APPOINTMENTNOTIFY's performance of the Agreement is subject to existing laws and legal process, and nothing contained in the Agreement is in derogation of APPOINTMENTNOTIFY's right to comply with governmental, court, and law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your use of the Platform or information provided to or gathered by APPOINTMENTNOTIFY with respect to such use. In addition to any excuse provided by applicable law, we shall be excused from liability for non-delivery or delay in delivery of the Platform arising from any event beyond our reasonable control, whether or not foreseeable by either party, including but not limited to, labor disturbance, war, terrorism, fire, denial of service attack, internet outages, accident, adverse weather, inability to secure transportation, governmental act or regulation, and other causes or events beyond our reasonable control, whether or not similar to those which are enumerated above. The parties agree that all correspondence relating to this Agreement shall be written in the English language.
This Agreement represents the full agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior negotiations and agreements between the parties regarding the same.
