14. Agreement to Arbitrate
(a) Agreement to Arbitrate:
If You are a Launch Control customer and acquired access to the Website and/or Software in the U.S., You (and any company that You represent in entering this Agreement) agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Software (collectively, “Disputes“) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right: (i) to bring an individual action in small claims court and (ii) 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 (the action described in the foregoing clause (ii), an “IP Protection Action“). Without limiting the preceding sentence, You will also have the right to litigate any other Dispute if You provide Launch Control with written notice of Your desire to do so by email to firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days following the date You first access the Website or access or use Software, or agree to the present terms and conditions, whichever is earlier (such notice, an “Arbitration Opt-out Notice“). If You don’t provide Launch Control with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice within such 30 day period, You will be deemed to have knowingly and intentionally waived Your right to litigate any Dispute except as expressly set forth in clauses (i) and (ii) above. The exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any IP Protection Action or, if You timely provide Client with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice, will be the state or federal courts located in the Middle District of Florida, and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts. Unless You timely provide Client with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice, You acknowledge and agree that You and Launch Control 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. Further, unless both You and Launch Control 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. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this Section will survive any termination of this Agreement.
(b) Arbitration Rules
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA“) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules“) then in effect, except as modified by this Section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/Rules or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.
(c) Arbitration Process
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a general Demand for Arbitration. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
(d) Arbitration Location and Procedure
Unless You and Launch Control otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where You reside. If Your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of the documents that You and Launch Control submit to the arbitrator, unless You request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If Your claim exceeds $10,000, Your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
(e) Arbitrator’s Decision
The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award of damages must be consistent with the terms of Section 9 (“Limitation of Liability”) as to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. 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. If You prevail in arbitration You will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. Launch Control will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules.
You, and if applicable, any company on whose behalf You are accessing the Website and/or using any Software, HEREBY JOINTLY AND SEVERALLY AGREE to indemnify and hold harmless Launch Control from, and with respect to any claims, causes of action, damages, fines, penalties, sanctions or other liabilities, including the all of Launch Control’s costs and expenses for defending against any of the foregoing, if such claims, causes of action, damages, fines, penalties, sanctions or other liabilities arise in any way arise from, or relate to Your access or use of the Website, Software and/or any data or information provided by, generated by, or otherwise made available to You through such access or use.
Without limiting anything elsewhere contained in this Agreement, You agree to abide by all provisions of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (“TCPA”) – 47 U.S.C. § 227. You agree that you alone are responsible for any communications with third parties in any way associated with information or data that you obtain or generate through use of the Website and/or Software, and the indemnity of the preceding paragraph of this Section 15 shall apply to any actions against Launch Control and/or any entity related to Launch Control, including its successors and assigns, that in any way relate to Your violation or alleged violation of the TCPA. This same prohibition and indemnity obligation shall apply with respect to any act or omission by You that is in violation of any law, regulation, or ordinance relating to privacy, data use, or third party contact, and that results, directly or indirectly, to any claim or defense undertaking by Launch Control.

You may not assign or transfer this Agreement or any rights granted hereunder, by operation of law or otherwise, without Launch Control’s prior written consent, and any attempt by You to do so, without such consent, will be void. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under this Agreement will be without prejudice to its other remedies under this Agreement or otherwise. All notices or approvals required or permitted under this Agreement will be in writing and delivered by email (we will email You at the email address You provided us when You initially purchased Your license), and in each instance will be deemed given upon receipt. The failure by either party to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that or any other provision. Any waiver, modification or amendment of any provision of this Agreement will be effective only if in writing and signed by authorized representatives of both parties. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to create a partnership, joint venture or agency relationship between the parties. Neither party will have the power to bind the other or to incur obligations on the other’s behalf without such other party’s prior written consent. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent possible, and the other provisions will remain in full force and effect. This Agreement is the complete and exclusive understanding and agreement between the parties regarding its subject matter, and supersedes all proposals, understandings or communications between the parties, oral or written, regarding its subject matter, unless You and Launch Control have executed a separate agreement. Any terms or conditions contained in Your purchase order or other purchasing document that are inconsistent with or in addition to the terms and conditions of this Agreement are hereby rejected by Launch Control and will be deemed null.
