FORCE MAJEURE

No party shall be liable for any default or delay in the performance of its obligations under these Terms if and to the extent such default or delay is caused directly or indirectly by a force majeure event. In any such event, the non-performing party shall be excused from any further performance and observance of the obligations so affected only for as long as such circumstances prevail and such party continues to use commercially reasonable efforts to recommence performance or observance as soon as practicable.

 

GOVERNING LAW

These Terms shall be governed by Georgia law, without regard to its choice of law or conflicts of law.

 

DISPUTES AND ARBITRATION

In the unlikely event that Alexander Babbage has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any Alexander Babbage claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in the city of Atlanta, Georgia under the commercial rules then in effect for the AAA, except as provided herein. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this section shall be deemed as preventing Alexander Babbage from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to protect any of Alexander Babbage’s proprietary interests. The timeline for disputes, unless otherwise required by applicable law, must be commenced within one year after the cause of action accrues. ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND ALEXANDER BABBAGE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.

 

ENTIRE AGREEMENT

These Terms with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Alexander Babbage constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the Service, and supersede any previous agreements and understandings.  In the event of a conflict between these Terms and the Master Services Agreement, the Master Services Agreement shall prevail, except that the Right to Amend section below shall prevail regardless of conflict.  In the event of conflict between any other Alexander Babbage agreement or policy (“Additional Terms”), these Terms shall prevail.

 

RIGHT TO AMEND

Alexander Babbage reserves the right to amend these Terms at any time, and to change, delete, discontinue, or impose conditions on any feature or aspect of the Services, with notice that we deem, in our sole discretion, to be reasonable according to the circumstances. Notice may include notice on our website at alexanderbabbage.com.  Failure to notify you of revisions shall not modify or change the effectiveness of those revisions.  Any use of our Services after publication of any such change shall constitute your acceptance of these Terms as modified.

 

SEVERABILITY 

The parties intend every provision of these Terms to be severable. If any part of these Terms is not enforceable, the remaining provisions shall remain valid and enforceable. In such case, the parties will in good faith modify or substitute a provision consistent with their original intent. If any remedy fails of its essential purpose, then all other provisions, including the limitations on liability and exclusion of damages, will remain fully effective.
