XII. MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND PROHIBITION ON CLASS ACTIONS
The parties hereto agree and understand that any dispute or claim related to your use of the Services, any disputes regarding any alleged breach of these Terms, to the extent such dispute cannot otherwise be resolved, as well as any other action to enforce these Terms or for the breach of these Terms, shall be referred to final and binding arbitration, and not in court. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.
Any arbitration proceeding will take place in the State of Nebraska, subject to the laws of the State of Nebraska and will otherwise be governed by the then-current commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association, and the parties hereto expressly waive their rights, if any, to have any such matters heard by a court or jury, or administrative agency whether federal or state. The parties in any arbitration to enforce this agreement or remedy its breach will equally share the costs associated with such arbitration proceedings; provided, that, each party shall pay its own attorney’s fees. Within fourteen (14) days after the commencement of arbitration, each party shall select one person to act as arbitrator and the two selected shall select a third arbitrator within ten (10) days of their appointment. If the arbitrators selected by the parties are unable or fail to agree upon the third arbitrator, the third arbitrator shall be selected by the American Arbitration Association.
Both parties agree that any dispute resolution proceedings (including any arbitrations and any court proceedings) will be conducted only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, consolidated, or representative proceeding. Class actions and class arbitrations are prohibited. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, each party hereby waives any right to a jury trial. Both parties also agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
XIII. HOSTING LIMITATIONS.
Any proxy user that utilizes an excessive amount of bandwidth will be subject to a review of their account to assess the appropriateness of additional costs. Excessive bandwidth usage is defined below dependent on the specific package in service:
Dedicated/Backconnect Proxies: Excessive usage is defined as any bandwidth usage greater than 0.03 TB per IP in a 30 day period
Semi-Dedicated Proxies: Excessive usage is defined as any bandwidth usage greater than 0.015 TB per IP in a 30 day period
Any user who uses more than 10 TB/mo. of bandwidth on their servers purchased from Light Proxies agrees that they will be charged an additional $30 per 10 TB, or risk their account being terminated. We do not tolerate bandwidth abusers.
Governing Law. These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Nebraska, without regard to the principles of conflicts of law.
