6. BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY—IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.

Agreement to Arbitrate

Any civil action, claim, dispute or proceeding arising out of or relating to this or any previous version of this Agreement, your use of or access to the Platform, or any Service, or any products or services sold, offered or purchased on or through any Franchised Location, except for an injunctive action regarding a breach or threatened breach of any provision of this Agreement by you as provided below, will be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, before a single arbitrator, rather than in court. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this "Agreement to Arbitrate" section (this "Agreement to Arbitrate").

Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. An arbitrator should apply the terms of this Agreement as a court would.

The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement to Arbitrate, any part of it, or of this Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of the Agreement to Arbitrate or this Agreement is void or voidable.

The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA") at its offices in or nearest to the City of Houston, Texas, under the AAA’s rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (as applicable), as modified by this Agreement to Arbitrate. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA’s site at www.adr.org

Code Ninjas, LLC (also referred to in this Section 6 as "we" or "us") and you will select the arbitrator, and if you and we are unable to reach agreement on selection of the arbitrator within 30 days after the notice of arbitration is served, then the AAA will select the arbitrator. Arbitration will not commence until the party requesting arbitration has deposited U.S. $1,000 with the arbitrator for the arbitrator’s fees and costs. The party requesting arbitration will advance such sums as are required from time to time by the arbitrator to pay the arbitrator’s fees and costs until the prevailing party is determined or the parties have agreed in writing to an alternate allocation of fees and costs.

The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, including recognized principles of equity, and will honour all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator will not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving our other users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same user to the extent required by applicable law. Judgement upon any award rendered by the arbitrator is final, binding and conclusive upon you and us and your and our respective administrators, executors, legal representatives, successors and assigns, and may only be entered in the state or federal courts of record for Harris County, Texas.

Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief

YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS PART OF ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER USERS.

THEREFORE, YOU DO NOT HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO COURT TO ASSERT OR DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS AND YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN OR BRING CLASS ACTIONS. BY USING PLATFORM, OR ANY SERVICE, YOU CONSENT TO THESE RESTRICTIONS.

Exclusions from Arbitration: YOU AND THE CN ENTITIES AGREE THAT THE ONLY DISPUTES NOT COVERED BY THIS SECTION ARE (1) CLAIMS REGARDING THE INFRINGEMENT, PROTECTION OR VALIDITY OF YOUR OR CODE NINJAS, LLC’S TRADE SECRETS, COPYRIGHT, TRADEMARK OR PATENT RIGHTS AND (2) CLAIMS YOU CHOOSE TO PURSUE IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT WHERE JURISDICTION AND VENUE OVER CODE NINJAS, LLC AND YOU OTHERWISE QUALIFIES FOR SUCH SMALL CLAIMS COURT AND WHERE YOUR CLAIM DOES NOT INCLUDE A REQUEST FOR ANY TYPE OF EQUITABLE RELIEF.

Right to Opt-Out of Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver Within 30 Days. You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by this arbitration provision by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to Code Ninjas, LLC, Attn: Legal Counsel, 11200 Broadway Street, Suite 2731, Pearland, Texas, 77584 or [email protected] The written notice must be postmarked or emailed within thirty (30) days of the later of the date noted in the "Last Update to Section 6" or your initial log in to the Sites, or any of the Portal(s). Your written notification must include: (1) your name, (2) your physical postal address, and (3) a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with any Code Ninjas Entity through arbitration. Otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate any disputes, claims, or controversies in accordance with the terms of this Section. If you opt-out of this arbitration provision, the CN Entities also will not be bound by it. If you do not affirmatively elect to opt out as described above, your use of the Platform and/or any Service will be deemed to be your irrevocable acceptance of this Agreement and any changes/updates to this Section.

Notice of Dispute. IF YOU HAVE A DISPUTE WITH ANY CODE NINJAS ENTITY, YOU MUST FIRST SEND WRITTEN NOTICE OF THE NATURE OF THE DISPUTE TO CODE NINJAS, LLC, Attention: LEGAL COUNSEL, 11200 BROADWAY STREET, SUITE 2731, PEARLAND, TEXAS 77584 or [email protected] TO GIVE THE ENTITY WITH WHICH YOU HAVE A DISPUTE THE OPPORTUNITY TO RESOLVE THE DISPUTE INFORMALLY THROUGH NEGOTIATION. You agree to negotiate resolution of the Dispute in good faith for no less than sixty (60) days after you provide notice of the Dispute. If the Code Ninjas Entity with which you have a Dispute does not resolve your Dispute within sixty (60) days from receipt of written notice of the Dispute, you or the Code Ninjas Entity with which you have a Dispute may pursue your claim in arbitration pursuant to the terms in this Section.

Confidentiality of Arbitration Proceedings. Arbitration proceedings conducted pursuant to this Section 6 shall be strictly confidential. The fact that an arbitration exists or is proceeding, the nature of the Dispute, all documents exchanged in connection with the arbitration, all testimony (including transcripts of testimony, if any) that is given in the arbitration proceeding, and any arbitration award shall remain confidential. The only exceptions to this confidentiality provision are disclosures reasonably necessary to confirm or vacate an arbitration award, a judicial challenge to an arbitration award or its enforcement, or disclosure that is required by operation of law or court order; provided, however, that this Paragraph shall not prevent the disclosure of such information (1) as may be required to your legal and financial advisors and independent accountants; (2) as may be required to any Code Ninjas Entity’s (a) legal, financial and other professional advisors, regulators, rating agencies, independent accountants, analysts, agents, and/or directors, (b) shareholders and/or affiliates and their respective officers, directors and legal, financial and other professional advisors, and/or (c) existing or potential insurers or reinsurers, existing or potential investors, existing or potential lenders, or existing or potential purchasers; and/or (3) as otherwise required to comply with any applicable law or regulation.

Severability. If any clause within this Section (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that specific clause will be severed from this Section, and the remainder of this Section will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, this entire Section will be unenforceable, and the Dispute will be decided by a court and you and the Code Ninjas Entity with which you have a dispute each agree to waive in that instance, to the fullest extent allowed by law, any trial by jury.

Continuation. This Section shall survive any termination of this Agreement or the provision of any Service to you.

GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION

THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF TEXAS WITHOUT REGARD TO ITS CONFLICT OF LAW RULES, GOVERN THIS AGREEMENT AND ANY DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND ANY CN ENTITIES. ANY DISPUTE NOT SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION WILL BE LITIGATED EXCLUSIVELY BY EITHER PARTY IN A COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION IN EITHER THE DISTRICT COURTS OF TEXAS, COUNTY OF HARRIS, OR IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF TEXAS.
