Customer hereby agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Michigan Plank Flooring ® and its affiliates, officers, directors, employees and agents from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, liabilities, losses, reasonable expenses or costs (collectively, “Losses”) incurred as a result of any third party claim arising from (i) Customer’s and/or any of its Users’, violation of these Terms or applicable Law; and/or (ii) Customer Data, including the use of Customer Data by Michigan Plank Flooring ® and/or any of its subcontractors, infringes or violates, any third party’s rights, including, without limitation, intellectual property, privacy and/or publicity rights.
8.2. By Michigan Plank Flooring ®. Michigan Plank Flooring ® hereby agrees to defend Customer, its affiliates, officers, directors, and employees, in and against any third party claim or demand against Customer, alleging that Customer’s authorized use of the Service infringes or constitutes misappropriation of any third party’s copyright, trademark or registered US patent (the “IP Claim”), and we will indemnify Customer and hold Customer harmless against any damages and costs finally awarded on such IP Claim by a court of competent jurisdiction or agreed to via settlement we agreed upon, including reasonable attorneys’ fees. Michigan Plank Flooring ®’s indemnity obligations under this Section 16 shall not apply if: (i) the Service (or any portion thereof) was modified by Customer or any of its Users or any third party, but solely to the extent the IP Claim would have been avoided by not doing such modification; (ii) if the Service is used in combination with any other service, device, software or products, including, without limitation, Third Party Services, but solely to the extent that such IP Claim would have been avoided without such combination; and/or (ii) any IP Claim arising or related to, the Customer Data or to any events giving rise to Customer’s indemnity obligations under Section 16.1 above. Without derogating from the foregoing defense and indemnification obligation, if Michigan Plank Flooring ® believes that the Service, or any part thereof, may so infringe, then Michigan Plank Flooring ® may in its sole discretion: (i) obtain (at no additional cost to you) the right to continue to use the Service; (ii) replace or modify the allegedly infringing part of the Service so that it becomes non-infringing while giving substantially equivalent performance; or (iii) if Michigan Plank Flooring ® determines that the foregoing remedies are not reasonably available, then Michigan Plank Flooring ® may require that use of the (allegedly) infringing Service (or part thereof) shall cease and in such an event, Customer shall receive a prorated refund of any Subscription Fees paid for the unused portion of the Subscription Term.

8.3. Indemnity Conditions. The defense and indemnification obligations of the indemnifying party under this Section 16 are subject to: (i) the indemnified party shall promptly provide a written notice of the claim for which an indemnification is being sought, provided that such indemnitee’s failure to do so will not relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations under this Section 16, except to the extent the indemnifying party’s defense is materially prejudiced thereby; (ii) the indemnifying party being given immediate and exclusive control over the defense and/or settlement of the claim, provided, however that the indemnifying party shall not enter into any compromise or settlement of any such claim that that requires any monetary obligation or admission of liability or any unreasonable responsibility or liability by an indemnitee without the prior written consent of the affected indemnitee, which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed; and (iii) the indemnified party providing reasonable cooperation and assistance, at the indemnifying party’s expense, in the defense and/or settlement of such claim and not taking any action that prejudices the indemnifying party’s defense of, or response to, such claim.
- Governing Law and Jurisdiction; Class Action Waiver and Mandatory Arbitration.
9.1. Governing Law; Jurisdiction. These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed and interpreted by and under the laws of the United States without giving effect to any conflicts of laws principles that require the application of the law of a different jurisdiction. Courts of competent jurisdiction located in Michigan, shall have the sole and exclusive jurisdiction and venue over all controversies and claims arising out of, or relating to, these Terms. You and us mutually agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to these Terms. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Michigan Plank Flooring ® reserves the right to seek injunctive relief in any court in any jurisdiction.
9.2. Class Action Waiver. WHERE PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AND Michigan Plank Flooring ® AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. Unless both you and Michigan Plank Flooring ® mutually agree, no arbitrator or judge may consolidate more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
9.3. Arbitration. To the extent permitted under applicable Law, you and Michigan Plank Flooring ® hereby irrevocably agree to the following provisions:
9.3.1 Dispute resolution and Arbitration. Any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and us arising in connection with, or relating in any way to, these Terms (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and whether the claims arise during or after the termination or expiration of these Terms) will be determined solely by mandatory binding arbitration. In arbitration there is no judge or jury and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) and must follow the terms of these Terms as a court would.
9.3.2 Exception. Notwithstanding clause 21.3.1 above, you and Michigan Plank Flooring ® both agree that nothing herein will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our rights, at any time, to seek injunctive relief in a court of law. In addition to the above, notwithstanding clause 21.3.1 above, Michigan Plank Flooring ® may file a suit in a court of law against you to address intellectual property infringement claims.
9.3.3 Special Statute of Limitation. Any arbitration must be commenced by filing a demand for arbitration within 2 years after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or reasonably should know of the act, omission, or default giving rise to the claim; and there shall be no right to any remedy for any claim not asserted within that time period. If applicable law prohibits such limitation period for asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period permitted by applicable Law.
9.3.4 Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail or Federal Express (signature required), or in the event that we do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail (“Dispute Notice”). The Dispute Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Dispute Notice is received, you or us may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or us shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. Without derogating from the generality of the confidentiality protection under Section 21.3.3 above, all documents and information disclosed in the course of the arbitration shall be kept strictly confidential by the recipient and shall not be used by the recipient for any purpose other than for purposes of the arbitration or the enforcement of the arbitrator’s decision and award and shall not be disclosed except in confidence to persons who have a need to know for such purposes or as required by applicable Law. Except as required to enforce the arbitrator’s decision and award, neither you nor us shall make any public announcement or public comment or originate any publicity concerning the arbitration, including, but not limited to, the fact that the parties are in dispute, the existence of the arbitration, or any decision or award of the arbitrator.
