NeoSpectra Terms

Important – please read these NeoSpectra terms for the sale of devices, grant of license to software, and provision of services (“Terms”) carefully as they contain the legal terms and conditions that you agree to when you purchase devices, obtain licenses to software, and order services offered by NeoSpectra Systems Inc. (“NeoSpectra”) through NeoSpectra’s webstore (the “Webstore”) and that govern your use of any software and services provided by NeoSpectra. By clicking on the “I agree to the Terms and Privacy Policy” button, (1) you acknowledge that you have read, understand, and agree to be bound by these Terms, and (2) you represent that you have the authority to enter into these Terms, personally or on behalf of the organization or company you have named as the customer (the “Customer”), and to bind the Customer to these Terms. The term “you” refers to the individual or a legal entity, as applicable, that purchases Devices (“Devices”), obtains licenses to applications (“Software”), and registers for and uses services (“Services”) through the Webstore (the Devices, Software, and Services, individually and collectively, the “NeoSpectra Products”).  If you do not agree to these Terms, or if you do not have such authority, you should not click on the “I agree to the Terms and Privacy Policy” button and thereby not contract for NeoSpectra Products. An order placed by you represents an offer to NeoSpectra for the contract for a NeoSpectra Product under these Terms. Such order is subject to subsequent acceptance by NeoSpectra. Your order is accepted through express confirmation or, at the latest, by the shipping, making available of, or provision of the ordered NeoSpectra Product(s) that you ordered.

 

  1. Sale of Devices

 

1.1 Orders for Devices.  Your order for Devices is subject to cancelation by NeoSpectra, in its sole discretion, and any automatic confirmation email sent by NeoSpectra in connection with your order does not constitute acceptance of the order by NeoSpectra.

NeoSpectra reserves the right, including without prior notice, to limit the quantity of Devices purchased per Customer or per order for any reason. NeoSpectra will attempt to notify you should such limits be applied. NeoSpectra also reserves the right, at NeoSpectra’s sole discretion, to prohibit sales to dealers or resellers. For purposes of these Terms, "reselling" will be defined as purchasing or intending to purchase any Devices through the Webstore for the purpose of engaging in a commercial sale of the same Devices to a third party.

 

1.2 Shipment of Devices.  Delivery dates are estimates only. Delivery of each order for Devices is subject to availability of the Devices. NeoSpectra may deliver partial shipment and the risk of loss and title to Devices passes from NeoSpectra to you upon shipment from our facility or warehouse. For international shipments (a) you will be the importer of record and responsible for clearing your shipment for import and (b) you authorize NeoSpectra to designate the shipment provider to act as your agent with the relevant customs and tax authorities in the destination country and to clear your shipment and pay any import fees (and you agree to reimburse the shipment provider for such fees, if applicable).

NeoSpectra reserves the right, at NeoSpectra’s own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you are required to indemnify NeoSpectra and you agree to cooperate with NeoSpectra’s defense of these claims.

 

 

  1. Warranties. The Software and Services are provided by NeoSpectra on an “as-is” basis.  NeoSpectra and its suppliers disclaim all express, implied, or statutory warranties relating to the Software and Services, including but not limited to, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement.  NeoSpectra does not warrant that use of the Software and Services will be uninterrupted or error-free, that defects will be corrected, or that the Software and Services, are free of viruses, or other harmful components.  If applicable law requires any warranties with respect to the Software and Services, all such warranties are limited in duration to ninety (90) days from the date of the respective receipt (for Software) or usage (for Services).

You understand and agree that the submission of any Customer Data to NeoSpectra through the Services is done at your own discretion and risk and that you will be solely responsible for any loss or damage to such Customer Data or any damage to your computer system or loss of data that may result in the download or upload of any Customer Data.

  1. Applicable law and Binding Arbitration

 

10.1 Local Laws and Export Control.  NeoSpectra controls and operates this Service from its location in the United States and is subject to U.S. export laws and regulations.  NeoSpectra makes no representation that the Services are appropriate or available for use at other locations.  If you use the Services from outside the U.S., you are solely responsible for compliance with all applicable laws, including, without limitation, export and import regulations of other countries.  

 

10.2 Applicable law.  These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California and the United States without regard to the conflict of laws provisions therein that would require application of the laws of another state.

 

10.3 Binding Arbitration.  NeoSpectra and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between the two parties (the "Parties"). This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to:

  • Claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between the Parties, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory;
  • Claims that arose before this or any prior agreement between the Parties (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);
  • Claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which Customer is not a member of a certified class; and
  • Claims that may arise after the termination of any agreement between the Parties.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. You agree that, by accepting these terms and conditions, Customer and NeoSpectra are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. The transaction between the Parties evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of the agreement entered into by the Parties.

 

A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to NeoSpectra should be addressed to: NeoSpectra Systems Inc., [address for notices] ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If NeoSpectra and Customer do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, Customer or NeoSpectra may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by NeoSpectra or Customer shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or NeoSpectra is entitled. You may download a form Notice here [insert URL to form notice].

 

After NeoSpectra receives notice at the Notice Address that Customer has commenced arbitration, it will promptly reimburse Customer for Customer's payment of the filing fee (if Customer is unable to pay this fee, NeoSpectra will pay it directly upon receiving a written request at the Notice Address). The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by these terms and conditions, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this arbitration provision, but the arbitrator is bound by the terms of these terms and conditions. Unless NeoSpectra and Customer agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of Customer's billing address. If Customer's claim is for Ten Thousand U.S Dollars (US$10,000) or less, NeoSpectra agrees that Customer may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If Customer's claim exceeds Ten Thousand U.S Dollars (US$10,000), the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Except as otherwise provided for herein, NeoSpectra will pay all AAA filing, administration, and arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated in accordance with the notice requirements above. If, however, the arbitrator finds that the substance of Customer's claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all such fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, Customer agrees to reimburse NeoSpectra for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise Customer's obligation to pay under the AAA Rules.

 

If, after finding in Customer's favor in any respect on the merits of Customer's claim, the arbitrator issues Customer an award that is:

  • Equal to or less than the greater of (a) Two Thousand U.S. Dollars (US$2,000) or (b) the maximum claim that may be brought in small claims court in the county of your billing address, and
  • Greater than the value of NeoSpectra' last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected, then NeoSpectra will:
  • Pay Customer the greater of (a) Two Thousand U.S. Dollars (US$2,000) or (b) the maximum claim that may be brought in small claims court in the county of Customer's billing address ("the premium") instead of the arbitrator's award; and
  • Pay Customer's attorney, if any, twice the amount of attorneys' fees, and reimburse any expenses that Customer's attorney reasonably accrues for investigating, preparing, and pursuing your claim in arbitration (the "Attorney Premium").

 

If NeoSpectra did not make a written offer to settle the dispute before an arbitrator was selected, Customer and Customer's attorney will be entitled to receive the premium and the Attorney Premium, respectively, if the arbitrator awards Customer any relief on the merits. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees, expenses, and the premium and the Attorney Premium at any time during the proceedings and upon request form either party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits.

The right to attorneys' fees and expenses set forth above supplements any right to attorneys' fees and expenses Customer may have under applicable law. Thus, if Customer would be entitled to a larger amount under the applicable law, this provision does not preclude the arbitrator from awarding Customer that amount. However, Customer may not recover duplicative awards of attorneys' fees or costs. Although under some laws NeoSpectra may have a right to an award of attorneys' fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration, NeoSpectra agrees that it will not seek such an award.

 

The arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. Customer and NeoSpectra agree that each may bring claims against the other only in Customer's or its individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. Further, unless both Customer and NeoSpectra agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.

 

11 Export Policy. You acknowledge that the Devices sold through the Webstore, and any Software, Services, or technology provided, downloaded, or used are subject to the customs and export control laws and regulations of the United States of America and may also be subject to the customs and export laws and regulations of the country in which the products are manufactured and/or received, and you agree to comply with all applicable laws. You agree, represent, and warrant that no Devices, Software, or Services will be accessed from, downloaded in, released in, carried to, transferred to, transshipped through, exported to, or re-exported (collectively "transferred") to any territory (or national resident thereof), person, entity, or organization to which such Devices, Software, and Services could not be transferred directly from the United States or by a U.S. person without a license, including without limitation to any person on the U.S. Treasury Department's List of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce's Denied Persons List or Entity List.

 

  1. Miscellaneous

 

NeoSpectra reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of these Terms at any time, and shall notify you by posting an updated version of these Terms.  You are responsible for regularly reviewing these Terms. Your continued use of any Services after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes. Neither the rights nor obligation arising under these Terms are assignable by you, and any such attempted assignment or transfer shall be void and without effect.  In the event that any provision of these Terms is found to be contrary to law, then such provision shall be construed as nearly as possible to reflect the intention of the parties, with the other provisions remaining in full force and effect.  These Terms constitute the entire agreement between the parties pertaining to the subject matter hereof, and any and all written or oral agreements existing between the parties regarding the subject matter contained herein are expressly canceled. All waivers must be in writing.  Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of these Terms on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.

 

Questions or additional information.  If you have questions regarding these Terms, or wish to obtain additional information, please send an e-mail to [email address for questions or additional information]
