ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
You and Vitalge agree that this arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving international commerce and shall be governed by the Global Arbitration Act (“GAA”), and not by any country or state law concerning arbitration; and that any dispute between us, including disputes by either of us against any agent, employee, subsidiary, affiliate, predecessor in interest, successor, or assignee of the other, will be resolved exclusively and finally by binding arbitration, except for disputes arising from an alleged violation of intellectual property rights or breach of confidentiality, for which the injured party may suffer irreparable harm and may seek a restraining order, preliminary injunctive relief, an injunction, specific performance or other equitable relief and/or legal remedies, and actions to enforce the decisions of the arbitrators, for which action may be taken in any court of competent jurisdiction. BY AGREEING TO THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO A TRIAL. In arbitration, a dispute is resolved by a neutral arbitrator or panel of arbitrators, rather than by a judge or jury. Arbitration is more informal, however, an arbitrator can award the same relief that a court can award. The arbitration will be administered by the permanent Court of Arbitration (“PCA”), and conducted under PCA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, the “PCA Rules”) then in effect at the time of the dispute. You may obtain copies of the PCA Rules and forms and instructions for initiating an arbitration by visiting the PCA website at www.pca-cpa.org, or by calling PCA at +31 70 302 4165. If for any reason the PCA is unavailable, the parties shall mutually select another arbitration forum. If you initiate an arbitration, Vitalge will promptly reimburse you for any standard filing fee which may have been required under AAA’s Procedures once you have notified Vitalge in writing and provided a copy of the arbitration proceedings. However, if Vitalge is the prevailing party in the arbitration, applicable law may allow the arbitrator to award attorneys’ fees and costs to Vitalge, including the filing fee. There shall be no right or authority for any claim to be arbitrated on a class action basis or in a purported representative capacity. No claim submitted to arbitration is heard by a jury or may be brought as a private attorney general. You do not have the right to act as a class representative or participate as a member of a class of claimants with respect to any claim submitted to arbitration. The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims against Vitalge and may not preside over any kind of representative or class proceeding against Vitalge. You acknowledge that this class action waiver is material and essential to the arbitration of any disputes between the parties and is non-severable from the agreement to arbitrate claims. If any portion of this class action waiver is limited, voided, or cannot be enforced, then the parties’ agreement to arbitrate shall be null and void. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT BY AGREEING TO THIS CLASS ACTION WAIVER, YOU MAY ONLY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST VITALGE IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING IF YOU HAVE ALREADY PURCHASED A PRODUCT AND YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE FOREGOING TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU MUST TELL US IN WRITING AND RETURN THE PRODUCT TO GET A REFUND.

Upon termination, you must destroy all copies of any aspect of this Site in your possession. The provisions concerning Vitalge’s proprietary rights, Submissions, indemnity, disclaimers of warranty and liability, admissibility of these Terms and Conditions, and governing law will survive the termination of these Terms and Conditions for any reason.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold Vitalge and its affiliates and their respective officers, directors, owners, agents, information providers, affiliates, licensors and licensees (collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”) harmless from and against any and all claims, demands, liabilities, costs and/or expenses whatsoever (including without limitation reasonable legal fees disbursements) arising out of or resulting, directly or indirectly, from: (a) your breach of these Terms and Conditions; (b) your access to or use of this Site or any website to which this Site is or may be linked from time to time; (c) your use of, reliance on, or publication, communication or distribution of anything on or from this Site; and/or (d) your violation of any law, rule or regulation.

You therefore agree that Vitalge shall be entitled, in addition to other available remedies, to seek and be awarded an injunction or other appropriate equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction restraining any breach, threatened or actual, of your obligations under any provision of these Terms and Conditions. Accordingly, you hereby waive any requirement that Vitalge post any bond or other security in the event any injunctive or equitable relief is sought by or awarded to Vitalge to enforce any provision of these Terms and Conditions.

WAIVER & SEVERABILITY
Failure to insist on strict performance of any of these Terms and Conditions will not operate as a waiver of any subsequent default or failure of performance. No waiver by Vitalge of any right under these Terms and Conditions will be deemed to be either a waiver of any other right or provision or a waiver of that same right or provision at any other time. If any part of these Terms and Conditions is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and the liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most clearly matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Terms and Conditions shall continue in effect.

We may perform any of our obligations or exercise any of our rights under these Terms and Conditions through one or more of our corporate affiliates (including any entity that directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with us). If Vitalge or its assets are acquired by another entity, that entity will assume our rights and obligations as described in these Terms and Conditions.
