WAIVER OF INJUNCTION OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF
to the maximum extent permitted by law, you agree that you will not be permitted to obtain an injunction or other equitable relief of any kind, such as any court or other action that may interfere with or prevent the development or exploitation of any website, application, content, submissions, product, service, or intellectual property owned, licensed, used or controlled by Heyven or a licensor of Heyven.
CONTROLLING LAW; JURISDICTION
The validity, construction and enforceability of these Terms and Conditions shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of Minnesota, and the parties expressly agree that any dispute requiring resolution by a court shall be subject to the exclusive venue and jurisdiction of the state and federal courts serving Dakota County, Minnesota.
Any dispute or claim arising under or in any way related to these Terms and Conditions, with the exception of recovery by Heyven of any unpaid amounts from you (which may be recovered by Heyven via collections, small claims court action, or any other legal remedy available to Heyven), shall be submitted to neutral, non-binding mediation prior to the commencement of arbitration or any other proceeding before a trier of fact. The parties to the dispute or claim agree to act in good faith to participate in mediation, and to identify a mutually acceptable mediator in Dakota County, Minnesota. All parties to the mediation shall share equally in its cost. If the dispute or claim is resolved successfully through the mediation, the resolution will be documented by a written agreement executed by all parties. If the mediation does not successfully resolve the dispute or claim, the mediator shall provide written notice to the parties reflecting the same, and the parties may then proceed to seek an alternative form of resolution of the dispute or claim, as they wish. In the event that Heyven chooses or is forced to pursue any form of collections or legal action to enforce the Terms, you accept responsibility for all costs incurred in such dispute, including reasonable attorneys’ fees.
NO CLASS ACTIONS
You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed.
You acknowledge and agree that these Terms, including waivers of liability, are intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by applicable law.
Heyven alone may assign, directly or indirectly, all or part of its rights or obligations under these Terms and Conditions without the prior written consent of the other party. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions, express or implied, will confer upon any person or entity not an authorized assignee to these Terms and Conditions, or the legal representatives of such person or entity, any rights, remedies, obligations, or liabilities of any nature or kind whatsoever under or by reason of these Terms and Conditions, except as expressly provided in herein.
If any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall continue to be valid and enforceable. If a court finds that any provision of these Terms and Conditions is invalid or unenforceable, but that by limiting such provision it would become valid and enforceable, then such provision shall be deemed to be written, construed and enforced as so limited.
The failure or delay by Heyven to enforce or exercise any provisions of these Terms shall not constitute or be deemed a waiver of such provision or any other provisions within these Terms. Furthermore, any waiver or breach of any provision of these Terms shall not amount to a waiver of any other provision.
The provisions of these Terms which by their nature should survive termination of your use of our service, including sections on Intellectual Property, Disclaimer of Representations and Warranties, Limitations of Our Liability, Indemnification, and Waiver of Injunctive or Other Equitable Relief will survive.
