Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
Informal Process First. You agree that in the event of any dispute between you and the Company Entities, you will first contact ClinEdge and make a good faith sustained effort to resolve the dispute before resorting to more formal means of resolution, including without limitation, any court action.
Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver. After the informal dispute resolution process, any remaining dispute, controversy, or claim (collectively, “Claim”) relating in any way to your use of ClinEdge’ s services and/or products, including the Services, will be resolved by arbitration. You and ClinEdge agree that any Claim will be settled by final and binding arbitration, using the English language, administered by JAMS under its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “JAMS Rules”) then in effect (those rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference into this section, and as of the date of these Terms). Arbitration will be handled by a sole arbitrator in accordance with the JAMS Rules. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court that has jurisdiction. Any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis – class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. You understand that by agreeing to these Terms, you and ClinEdge are each waiving the right to trial by jury or to participate in a class action or class arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you and ClinEdge will have the right to bring an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable or conservatory relief, pending a final decision by the arbitrator. You may instead assert your claim in “small claims” court, but only if your claim qualifies, your claim remains in such court and your claim remains on an individual, non-representative and non-class basis.
Costs of Arbitration. Payment for any and all reasonable JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be in accordance with the JAMS Rules. If the value of your claim does not exceed $10,000, ClinEdge will pay for the reasonable filing, administrative and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration, unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose.
Opt-Out. You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration provisions set forth in these Terms by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to firstname.lastname@example.org or to the U.S. mailing address listed at the bottom of this Agreement. The notice must be sent to ClinEdge within thirty (30) days of your registering to use the Services or agreeing to these Terms, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with these Terms. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, ClinEdge also will not be bound by them.
About these Terms
We may modify these Terms or any additional terms that apply to a Service to, for example, reflect changes to the law or changes to our Services. You should look at the Terms regularly.

Changes will not apply retroactively and will become effective no sooner than thirty (30) days after they are posted. However, changes addressing new functions for a Service or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately.
