15.2 Waiver and Severability : Failure by Kido Home or you to exercise any of our or your rights under, or to enforce any provision of, these Terms of Use will not be deemed a waiver or forfeiture of such rights or ability to enforce such provision. If any provision of these Terms of Use is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, invalid. or unenforceable, that provision will be amended to achieve as nearly as possible the same economic effect of the original provision and the remainder of these Terms of Use will remain in full force and effect.

15.3 Entire Agreement; Changes: These Terms of Use (which includes all exhibits, order forms, and policies referenced or incorporated in these Terms of Use) embodies the entire understanding and agreement between Kido Home and you regarding the subject matter hereof and thereof, and supersede any and all prior understandings and agreements between Kido Home and you respecting such subject matter. Kido Home may elect to change or supplement these Terms of Use from time to time at its sole discretion. Kido Home will exercise commercially reasonable business efforts to provide notice to you of any material changes to these Terms of Use. Within ten (10) business days of posting changes to these Terms of Use (or ten (10) business days from the date of notice, if such is provided), they will be binding on you. If you do not agree with the changes, you should discontinue using the Program. If you continue using the Program after such ten-business-day period, you will be deemed to have accepted the changes to the updated Terms of Use. In order to participate in the Program, you may be notified that you are required to download software and/or agree to additional terms and conditions. This Agreement has been prepared in the English Language and such version shall be controlling in all respects and any non-English version of these Terms of Use is solely for accommodation purposes.

Exhibit A

Governing Law; Agreement to Arbitrate;
Waiver of Jury Trial and Class Actions; Etc.

 

This Exhibit A to the Terms of Use describes the further provisions which apply to the Terms of Use of the Kido Home Program. PLEASE READ THESE PROVISIONS CAREFULLY, AS THEY MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.

 

  1. Governing Law and Location for Resolving Disputes. All disputes related to these Terms of Use or the use of the Program are governed by the laws indicated in the table below, without regard to any conflicts or choice of law provisions. The exclusive location for any claim or action related to these Terms of Use or the use of the Program is the national, federal, or state courts indicated in the table below. You agree to personal jurisdiction in those courts and that that location is not inconvenient for you.
     

  2. Informal Resolution. Before filing a claim against Kido Home, you agree to try to resolve the dispute by first emailing support@kido.school with a description of your issue or claim. We will try to resolve the dispute informally by following up via email, phone or other methods. If you and we cannot resolve the dispute within thirty (30) days of our receipt of your first email, you or Kido Home may then bring a formal proceeding as described below.
     

  3. Resolution by Arbitration. ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THESE TERMS OF USE (INCLUDING THE VALIDITY OR ENFORCEABILITY OF THESE TERMS OF USE) OR THE PROGRAM WILL BE SOLVED BY FINAL AND BINDING CONFIDENTIAL ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN IN COURT, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT APPLICABLE LAW OTHERWISE REQUIRES. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and the possibility for court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) and must follow these Terms of Use and the applicable law as a court would.
     

  4. Arbitration Process. The arbitration will be administered by, and will follow the then-current and applicable rules of, the arbitration body indicated in the table below. The number of arbitrators will be one. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the applicable rules. For monetary claims of less than $10,000, you may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person. The language to be used in the arbitration will be English. The arbitrator will issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
     

  5. Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may initiate an action in your local Small Claims Court if you meet the court’s requirements. However, if such a claim is transferred, removed, or appealed to a different court, Kido Home reserves the right to require arbitration.
     

  6. Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND KIDO HOME EACH WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT TO HAVE A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OF USE OR THE PROGRAM (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY).
     

  7. Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief. YOU AND KIDO HOME EACH AGREES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THAT CLAIMS MAY ONLY BE BROUGHT AGAINST THE OTHER ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. NO CLAIMS BY UNRELATED PARTIES MAY BE BROUGHT OR HEARD TOGETHER.
     

  8. Requirement to File Within One Year. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any claim or dispute under these Terms of Use must be filed in Small Claims Court or submitted for arbitration, as applicable, within one year of when it could first be filed, or such claim will be permanently barred, notwithstanding any statute of limitations that may provide a longer period.
     

  9. Severability. If any provision of this Exhibit A is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then that provision will be severed; however, the remaining provisions will still apply and will be interpreted to as nearly as possible achieve the original intent of this Exhibit A, inclusive of the severed provision.
