JURISDICTION AND GOVERNING LAW
Except as provided below, you and BestViews agree that any cause of action, legal claim, or dispute between you and us arising out of or related to these Terms (each such controversy or claim, a “claim(s)”), must be resolved by arbitration on an individual basis. Class actions and class arbitrations are not permitted; you and we may bring a claim only on your own behalf and cannot seek relief that would affect other users. If there is a final judicial determination that any particular claim (or a request for particular relief) cannot be arbitrated in accordance with this provision’s limitations, then only that claim (or only that request for relief) may be brought in court. All other claims (or requests for relief) remain subject to this provision.
Instead of using arbitration, you or we can bring claims in your local “small claims” court, if the rules of that court will allow it. If you don’t bring your claims in small claims court (or if you or we appeal a small claims court judgment to a court of general jurisdiction), then the claims must be resolved by binding, individual arbitration. The American Arbitration Association will administer all arbitrations under its Consumer Arbitration Rules. You and we expressly waive a trial by jury.
Claims which don’t have to be arbitrated, such as disputes related to violations of our Service Policy, or efforts to interfere with the Service or engage with the Service in unauthorized ways (example, automated ways) may be brought in court. In addition, issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration provision are for a court to decide. This arbitration provision is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
Before you commence arbitration of a claim, you must provide us with a written Notice of Dispute that includes your name, residence address, username, email address or phone number you use for your BestViews account, a detailed description of the dispute, and the relief you seek. Before we commence arbitration, we will send you a Notice of Dispute to the email address you use with your BestViews account, or other appropriate means. If we are unable to resolve a dispute within thirty (30) days after the Notice of Dispute is received, you or we may commence arbitration.
The laws of California, U.S.A will govern these Terms, as well as any claim without regard to conflict of law provisions. For any claim brought by either part, that is not arbitrated or resolved in small claims court, you agree to submit and consent to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction in, and the exclusive venue of, the state and federal courts located within Santa Clara County, California.
BestViews may change, add or delete these terms and conditions of this Agreement or any portion thereof from time to time in its sole discretion where we deem it necessary for legal, general regulatory and technical purposes, or due to changes in the Services provided or nature or layout of Services. Thereafter, you expressly agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement as amended.
The BestViews Companies may change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the Services at any time, including availability of any of the Services’ features, databases or Content.
We may close your Account, suspend your ability to use certain portions of the Service, terminate any license or permission granted to you hereunder, and/or ban you altogether from the Service for any or no reason, and without notice or liability of any kind. Any such action could prevent you from accessing your Account, the Service, Your Content, Service Content, or any other related information.
You may terminate any time by closing your Account, discontinuing any access to or use of the Service.
In the event of any termination of these Terms, whether by you or us, the following sections of the Terms of Service will continue in full force and effect.
- CONTENT, OWNERSHIP AND LICENSE GRANT
- ADDITIONAL RIGHTS WE RETAIN
- ABOUT SOFTWARE IN OUR SERVICES
- PROHIBITED ACTIVITIES

You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, agency, special or fiduciary relationship exists between you and BestViews as a result of these Terms or your use of the Service.
The Terms contain the entire agreement between you and us regarding the use of the Service, and supersede any prior agreement between you and us on such subject matter. The parties acknowledge that no reliance is placed on any representation made but not expressly contained in these Terms.
Any failure on BestViews’s part to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms does not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. The Terms may not be waived, except pursuant to a writing executed by BestViews.
If any provision of the Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, then only that provision shall be modified to reflect the parties’ intention or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
The Terms, and any rights or obligations hereunder, are not assignable, transferable or sub-licensable by you except with BestViews’s prior written consent, but may be assigned or transferred by us without restriction. Any attempted assignment by you shall violate these Terms and be void.
Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
