14. Limitation of liability
YOUR ACCESS TO AND/OR USE OF THE WEBSITE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PROVIDED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL PANDADOC, ITS AFFILIATES AND ITS SUBSIDIARIES, IF ANY, AND ITS THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS, PARTNERS, SUPPLIERS, AND VENDORS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTIES FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL AND/OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF AND/OR RELATED TO YOUR ACCESS TO AND/OR USE OF THE PANDADOC IP (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE WEBSITE), YOUR INABILITY TO ACCESS THE WEBSITE AND/OR INFORMATION AND/OR LINKS ON THE WEBSITE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THOSE DAMAGES RESULTING FROM LOSS OF USE, DATA AND/OR PROFITS, WHETHER OR NOT FORESEEABLE, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION NEGLIGENCE), WARRANTY, STRICT LIABILITY, AND/OR ANY OTHER LEGAL AND/OR EQUITABLE THEORY, EVEN IF PANDADOC HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES IN ADVANCE.

If you are a California resident, you hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which states, “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” If you are a resident of another jurisdiction in which any other statute or common law principles of similar effect applies, you waive the application of such statute or common law with respect to the claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) released under this Section.
15. Dispute resolution
Disputes. We want to address your concerns without filing a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against PandaDoc, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by sending a letter to us describing your claim to: PandaDoc, 101 California Street, Suite 3975, San Francisco, CA 94111 with a copy to email@example.com. We will try to resolve the dispute by contacting you via email, but if we cannot resolve the dispute within sixty (60) days after submission (or within a time period as otherwise agreed to by both parties), you and/or PandaDoc agree to resolve any claims related to the terms and conditions set forth herein and the application process through final and binding arbitration. Any and all controversies, disputes, demand, counts, claims, or causes of action (collectively “Actions”) between you and PandaDoc or PandaDoc employees, directors, officers, agents, successors, or assigns, shall exclusively be settled through binding and confidential arbitration, except as set forth under ‘Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate’ or for any claims that you or PandaDoc may take claims to small claims court if the dispute qualifies for hearing by such a court. In all cases, any Actions must be commenced within one (1) year after the cause of action arises.
Opt-out. You can opt-out and decline this agreement to arbitrate by contacting PandaDoc within thirty (30) days from the date that you first became subject to this arbitration provision. You must write us at PandaDoc, 101 California Street, Suite 3975, San Francisco, CA 94111 with a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you opt out, neither you nor PandaDoc can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding.
Arbitration Procedures. Except in the event the claim meets the requirements set forth in the ‘Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate’ section below and/or if you opt-out of arbitration as described above, all claims shall be settled by binding arbitration in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules in effect at the time the proceedings begin. Any such controversy and/or claim shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, and shall not be consolidated in any arbitration with any claim or controversy of any other party. The arbitration shall be held in Cook County, Illinois USA or any other location we agree to. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. You and PandaDoc must abide by these rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action and the arbitrator shall not award class-wide relief; (b) the arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are permitted by applicable law; and (c) each side pays his, her or its own attorneys’ fees and costs unless the claim(s) at issue permit the prevailing party to be paid its fees and litigation costs, and in such instance, the fees and costs awarded shall be determined by the applicable law. With the exception of subpart (a) in the paragraph above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, or illegal provision were not contained. If, however, subpart (a) in the paragraph above is found invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void. All information relating to and/or disclosed by any party in connection with the arbitration of any disputes shall be treated by the parties, their representatives, and the arbitrator as proprietary business information and shall not be disclosed without prior written authorization of the disclosing party.
Exceptions to agreement to arbitrate. Either you and/or PandaDoc may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Chicago, Illinois. PandaDoc may bring a lawsuit for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use and/or abuse of the PandaDoc IP, breach of Confidential Information and/or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright and/or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration and/or the informal dispute-resolution process described herein.
Waiver. There is no judge or jury in arbitration and arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited than rules applicable in court. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE, AGREE AND UNDERSTAND THAT, APART FROM THE NARROW EXCEPTIONS ABOVE, PANDADOC AND YOU ARE EACH WAIVING ITS RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT, INCLUDING RIGHTS TO RECEIVE A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT, CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY-GENERAL ACTION, OR ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
