By email: [email protected]
These Terms and your use of the Site are governed by the federal laws of the United States of America and the laws of the State of New York.
Unless otherwise agreed by you and CANCER101 in writing, you and CANCER101 shall resolve all disputes arising from or related to the Site and the Terms through binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association or the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (as determined by CANCER101) in accordance with their applicable rules. Any arbitral award may be submitted to, and you and CANCER101 hereby consent to the jurisdiction of, the state and federal courts in the State of New York. Any claims that for any reason are not submitted to arbitration as specified above shall be submitted to the state and federal courts in the State of New York, and you and CANCER101 agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts with respect to such claims.
Class Action Waiver
Any Claim must be brought in the respective party’s individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, collective, representative, multiple plaintiff, or similar proceeding (“Class Action”). The parties expressly waive any ability to maintain any Class Action in any forum. The arbitrator shall not have authority to combine or aggregate similar claims or conduct any Class Action nor make an award to any person or entity not a party to the arbitration. Any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. The parties understand that any right to litigate in court, to have a judge or jury decide their case, or to be a party to a class or representative action is waived, and that any claims must be decided individually, through arbitration.
If this class action waiver is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of the arbitration agreement shall be null and void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial.
If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is contrary to applicable law, the remaining part of the provision and the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect.
