11.1. Severability.

Notwithstanding anything contained in these Terms to the contrary, Infrascale may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for equitable relief (including, without limitation, specific performance or injunctive relief) without the need for posting of any bond or any other surety or security.
11.3. Disputes. [If You are a Partner, the provisions in the “Disputes” section of the Customer Agreement govern and the provisions in this Section 11.3 do not apply to You.]
(a) Generally. Notwithstanding any other provision in these Terms, and except as otherwise set forth in this Section, if either You or Infrascale has any dispute, controversy, or claim, whether founded in contract, tort, statutory, or common law, concerning, arising out of, or relating to these Terms or the Service Offerings, including any claim regarding the applicability, interpretation, enforceability, scope, validity, or formation of this arbitration clause and/or these Terms (each of the foregoing, a “Legal Claim”) that cannot be resolved directly between You and Infrascale, then such Legal Claim will be settled by individual (not class or class-wide), confidential, binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the then-current Commercial Arbitration Rules of the AAA, including the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (collectively, the “AAA Rules”), including any expedited procedures. This Section shall not preclude either party from seeking (i) equitable relief in accordance with Section 11.2; or (ii) relief from a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of such court’s jurisdiction.
(b) Process. To initiate an arbitration proceeding, an arbitration claim must be submitted by the claimant (the “Claimant”) to the AAA, and a written Demand for Arbitration must be provided to the other party (the “Opposing Party”), pursuant to the AAA Rules. Arbitration hearings will be held in Fairfax County, Virginia or any other location that is mutually agreed upon by You and Infrascale. A single arbitrator will be mutually selected by You and Infrascale and shall be (i) a practicing attorney licensed to practice law in Virginia or a retired judge; and (ii) selected from the arbitrators on the AAA’s roster of commercial dispute arbitrators who have a background in finance, technology, and/or online commerce law (or if there are no such arbitrators, then from the arbitrators on the AAA’s roster of commercial dispute arbitrators) (collectively, the “Arbitrator Requirements”). If You and Infrascale cannot mutually agree upon an arbitrator within ten (10) days of the Opposing Party’s receipt of the Demand for Arbitration from the Claimant, then the AAA shall appoint a single arbitrator that satisfies the Arbitrator Requirements. The arbitrator will follow the law and will give effect to any applicable statutes of limitation. Payment of filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. Infrascale will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. We will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.
(c) Courts. If You opt out of the arbitration agreement (as provided below), or if the arbitration agreement is found to be unenforceable, or if You neither are a resident nor have a principal place of business in the United States or Canada, You agree to resolve any claim You have with Infrascale exclusively in a state or federal court located in Fairfax County, Virginia.
(d) Timing. To the extent permitted by law, You agree to file any claim You may have against Infrascale within one (1) year after such claim arose. Otherwise, Your claim is permanently barred.
(e) Class Action and Trial Waiver. You and Infrascale agree and acknowledge that these Terms evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act (Title 9 of the United States Code) shall govern the interpretation, enforcement, and proceedings pursuant to the arbitration clause in these Terms. YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE, UNDERSTAND, AND AGREE THAT YOU AND INFRASCALE ARE EACH WAIVING OUR RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO A TRIAL BY JURY AS TO DISPUTES HEREUNDER AND THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLASS ACTION PROCEEDING ARISING FROM THESE TERMS.
(f) Opt Out. You may opt out of the agreement to arbitrate. If You do so, neither You nor Infrascale can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, You must notify Infrascale within ninety (90) days of the date that You first agreed to these Terms. To opt out by mail, send Your written opt-out notice to the following address:

11.4. Governing Law. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all claims shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, exclusive of conflict or choice of law rules. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to these Terms. The courts in some countries will not apply U.S. law to some types of disputes. If You reside in one of those countries, then where U.S. law is excluded from applying, the laws of Your country of residence will apply.
11.5. Modifications. Infrascale may modify these Terms at any time, in our sole discretion. If we make any material modifications to these Terms, we shall inform You by posting the modified Terms at infrascale.com/legal/terms-of-service/. It is Your responsibility to check periodically for modifications to these Terms. The modified Terms will be effective upon Your next subscription renewal following posting of the updated terms. Your continued access or use of the Service Offerings after such renewal confirms Your consent to be bound by the Terms, as amended. If You do not agree to be bound by the modified Terms, then You may not continue to use the Service Offerings.
11.6. Waiver. The failure by Infrascale at any time to enforce any of the provisions of these Terms or any right or remedy available hereunder or at law or in equity, or to exercise any option herein provided, will not constitute a waiver of such provision, right, remedy, or option or in any way affect the validity of these Terms. The waiver of any default by Infrascale will not be deemed a continuing waiver but will apply solely to the instance to which such waiver is directed.
11.7. Headings. The section headings used in these Terms are for convenience only and shall not be used in interpreting or construing these Terms.
11.8. No Agency. The parties hereto are independent contractors. These Terms do not create any agency, partnership or joint venture between the parties. Neither party has any express or implied right or authority to assume or create any obligations on behalf of the other or to bind the other to any contract, agreement, or undertaking with any third party.
11.9. Assignment. Infrascale may assign its rights or delegate its obligations, or any part thereof under these Terms without prior consent. You may not assign, whether in conjunction with a change of ownership, merger, acquisition, sale, or transfer of all or any part of Your business or assets or otherwise, either voluntarily, by operation of law or otherwise, any portion of these Terms without Infrascale’s prior written consent, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld. Any attempt by You to assign or delegate any rights, duties, or obligations set forth in these Terms without Infrascale’s prior written consent shall be deemed a material breach of these Terms and shall be null and void. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms shall bind and enure to each party’s successors and assigns.
(a) To You. Infrascale may provide any notice to You under these Terms by (i) posting a notice on the Infrascale Site or Dashboard, or (ii) sending a message to the email address then associated with Your Account.
