THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THE ARBITRAL TRIBUNAL MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MULTIPLE PERSONS’ CLAIMS, PRESIDE OVER ANY REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, OR CONSIDER THE ENFORCEABILITY OF THIS CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
c. Any claim, dispute, suit, matter, or controversy arising out of and/or relating to these Terms & Conditions will be construed and governed in accordance with the laws of the State of California in the United States of America, without regard to its conflict of laws principles. All disputes will be arbitrated (or, if the mandatory arbitration clause herein specified is found to be invalid, litigated) in San Francisco, CA, USA. The Parties hereby waive any defense or claim of lack of personal jurisdiction, the inappropriateness of venue, or forum non convenient. The Parties acknowledge and agree that this provision is not intended to, in any manner, limit or negate the force or effect of the immediately subsequent provisions entitled “Mandatory Arbitration of Claims” and “Class Action Waiver.” The Parties agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to these Terms & Conditions.
a. Except as expressly permitted otherwise in writing by Guardian Testing, you may not assign, delegate, sell, or transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Terms. Any purported assignment or delegation in violation of this Section 13.a is null and void. No assignment or delegation relieves you or any of your obligations under these Terms. Notwithstanding anything herein contrary, Guardian Testing may freely assign, delegate, sell, and/or transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms– and any assets relating to, arising out of, and/or concerning these Terms – including without limitation circumstances of sale, merger, acquisition, reincorporation, consolidation, reorganization, or other change of control. These Terms will be binding on your heirs, permitted assigns, administrators, and other legal represents, and shall inure to the benefit of Guardian Testing and any of its successors and/or assigns.
b. You acknowledge and agree that Guardian Testing shall hold no liability or responsibility for any losses, liabilities, damages, harms, costs, expenses, fees, or penalties, nor be deemed to have defaulted or breached these Terms, for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any term of these Terms that results from factors beyond the scope of our reasonable control. This includes without limitation, acts of God, weather, the slowdown or shutdown of carriers, transportation, and/or utilities, strikes and protests, border delays, health crises and/or pandemic illnesses, closures and/or lockdowns, acts of warfare and/or terrorism, and actions taken by government agencies.
c. If any of the Terms herein – or any portion(s) of any terms or conditions – are held unenforceable, the impact of that unenforceability (i.e. limitation or exclusion of terms) will be construed as narrowly as possible to the extent permitted by law and it does not invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction; moreover, the remainder of these Terms– and all other portions thereof – shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect to the extent legally permissible.
d. Any translation of these Terms or the SD Content is merely provided as a convenience. Any discrepancy or dispute involving a translated version of these Terms and/or the SD Content and the English version thereof shall be resolved in favor of the English version. Our headings and section titles in these Terms are provided strictly for your convenience; they have no binding or representative effect on either Party.
e. No waiver under these Terms is effective unless it is in writing, identified as a waiver to these Terms, and signed by an authorized representative of the Party waiving its right(s). The Parties agree that any failure by either Party to require the other’s strict adherence to any term or condition herein shall, in no manner, be construed as a waiver of any right(s) by that Party, nor shall such a failure be construed to remove or dilute the effect of any term, condition, or requirement stated in these Terms.
f. Insofar as these Terms include any errors or ambiguities related to spelling, grammar, or syntax – or any other clear errors or ambiguities – these errors and ambiguities shall be construed to reflect the intent of the Parties. This includes, without limitation: (a) any ambiguities, inconsistencies, misuses, or uncertainties around the usage of the word “and” vs. “or” vs. “and/or”; and (b) any ambiguities, inconsistencies, misuses, or uncertainties around the usage of the word “including” – which shall mean “including without limitation,” rather than as point of exclusion, unless otherwise noted; (c) any ambiguities, inconsistencies, misuses, or uncertainties around the usage of the word “Service” vs. “Services” vs. “Service(s)” - which shall not render any language inapplicable by virtue of the fact that it does or does not refer to more than one (1) Service.
g. All notices, requests, consents, claims, demands, waivers, and other communications from you to Guardian Testing in connection with these Terms (each, a “Notice”) shall be in writing and addressed to Guardian Testing at the address on this website. All Notices shall be delivered by personal delivery, nationally recognized overnight courier (with all fees pre-paid) or certified or registered mail (in each case, return receipt requested, postage prepaid).
h. These Terms benefit solely the Parties and their permitted assigns and nothing in these Terms, express or implied, confers on any other person or entity any legal or equitable right, benefit, or remedy of any nature whatsoever under or by reason of these Terms.
