In the event of failure to resolve such Dispute(s) through negotiation, any such Dispute(s) arising out of or in connection with these terms or in relation to the terms, including (but not limited to) any question regarding its existence, validity, interpretation, breach, performance, discharge, and applicable remedies, shall be resolved through mediation referred to CAA (Chinese Arbitration Association, Taipei) Mediation Center in accordance with its mediation rules.

The mediator shall be appointed by agreement between the Parties or, if the Parties cannot agree within five days after receipt of the notice of intention to mediate, the mediator will be appointed by the CAA Mediation Center. The mediation proceedings shall be held in Taipei, Taiwan. The Parties agree to attempt to resolve their Dispute(s) at mediation. The costs of the mediator shall be shared equally by the Parties. If the Dispute(s) have not been resolved within thirty days of the notice of desire to mediate, any Party may terminate the mediation and proceed to arbitration as set out below.

Any Party may serve notice of its desire to refer Dispute(s) to arbitration. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single arbitrator.

You must specify your name, email address, or other details necessary to identify you or your account. The email should contain a clear statement that you want to opt out of this arbitration agreement. If you successfully opt out of arbitration by following the procedure prescribed, any Dispute(s)” of any nature between you and us, arising out of or in connection to or in relation to these terms, including (but not limited to) any question regarding its existence, validity, interpretation, breach, termination, performance, discharge, and applicable remedies shall be subject to, after negotiation and arbitration subject to Exceptions, the courts of Taiwan having jurisdiction to entertain, decide, settle or resolve the Dispute(s).

The arbitrator may not consolidate Dispute(s) against us by other individuals or entities unless we expressly consent to such consolidation. These terms provide no right or authority for any Dispute(s) to be arbitrated, adjudicated, or resolved through proceedings on a class or representative basis or using class action procedures. The arbitrator may award any relief that is permitted by applicable law with respect to your individual claim, but to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, may not award relief against us respecting any person other than you.
- Class And Collective Action Waiver:
To the fullest extent allowed by applicable law, we and you agree that neither of us may participate as a class representative, private attorney general, or as a member of any class of claimants for any Dispute(s) subject to arbitration or for any non-arbitrable claim pursued in court. The arbitrator and any court shall construe these terms to arbitrate and the terms to waive class or collective actions in any manner that will render them enforceable and give them effect. If for any reason, this class or collective action waiver is deemed unenforceable by a court or arbitrator, you agree that the Parties’ contract to arbitrate is then entirely void.
