If you are upset with us, let us know, and we hope we can solve your problem. But if we can’t, then the following rules will govern any legal dispute involving our Services:
A. Applicable Law. The Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Switzerland, excluding its conflict of laws rules. These laws will apply no matter what country you live in.
B. Arbitration. You and 1H2O3 agree that any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with the Terms shall be finally settled by arbitration, in the French language, in accordance with the Swiss Rules of International Arbitration of the Swiss Chambers’ Arbitration Institution in effect on the date the notice of arbitration is filed in accordance with those Rules. (such rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference into this section). Our arbitration will be conducted by a single arbitrator in accordance with these rules. Any arbitration pursuant to the Terms shall be conducted on an individual basis: class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. You understand that by agreeing to abide by the Terms, you and 1H2O3 each waive the right to a jury trial or to participate in a class action. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party shall have the right to bring an action in a court of appropriate jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable or protective relief, pending a final decision by the arbitrator.
C. Court. We are based in Lucerne, Switzerland, so any legal action against 1H2O3 related to our Services must be brought and take place in Zurich. This means that the seat of any arbitration will be Zurich. For any legal action not subject to arbitration, you and 1H2O3 agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in Zurich, Switzerland.
12. Changes to the Terms
We may update these Terms from time to time. If we believe the changes are material, please be assured that we will notify you by taking one (or more) of the following actions: (1) publishing the changes through the Services or (2) sending you an email or message addressing the changes. This way, you can decide if you want to continue using the Services. The changes will take effect upon publication. You are responsible for reviewing and acknowledging any changes. Your use of the Services following the changes constitutes your acceptance of the updated Terms.
13. Some legal subtleties
The Terms, including all rules that constitute them, supersede any other agreement between you and 1H2O3 regarding the Services. If any part of the Terms is found to be invalid, that part shall be limited to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms otherwise remain in full force and effect. Our failure to enforce any part of the Terms does not constitute a waiver of our right to subsequently enforce that part or any other part of the Terms. We may assign any of our rights and obligations under the Terms.
