Customer acknowledges that the amount billed each period may vary for reasons that may include promotional offers, and/or changing a plan, and Customer authorizes us to charge Customer’s Payment Method for such varying amounts, which may be billed in one or more charges.

Customer agrees that its Payment Method will be subject to this automatic renewal feature unless Customer cancels its subscription at least thirty (30) days prior to the Renewal Commencement Date.

At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to any or all of our Customers (“credits”). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at 3Doptix’s sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle Customer to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstances.
5.5 Taxes: Customer shall be responsible for paying all applicable sales, use, transfer, or other taxes and all duties, whether national, state, or local, however designated, that are levied or imposed by reason of Customer’s paid use of the Service under this Agreement, excluding income taxes on the net profits of 3Doptix. Customer shall reimburse 3Doptix for the amount of any such taxes or duties paid or incurred directly by 3Doptix as a result of such paid use, and Customer agrees that 3Doptix may charge any such reimbursable taxes to Customer’s Payment Method. Customer shall not deduct or withhold any taxes except as required under law. If Customer is required under law to deduct or withhold any amounts, Customer shall deduct such amounts from amounts otherwise due hereunder, make payment of the deducted amounts to the applicable authorities and provide 3Doptix with proof thereof, and make payment of such additional amounts such that 3Doptix shall receive all amounts due hereunder as if no such withholding or deduction was made.

12. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT; CLASS WAIVER; WAIVER OF TRIAL BY JURY. Please read this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It is part of your contract with 3Doptix and affects your rights. It contains procedures for MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER. Applicability of Arbitration Agreement: All claims and disputes (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as set forth below) in connection with this Agreement or the use of any product or service provided by 3Doptix that cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this Arbitration Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement applies to you and 3Doptix, and to any subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or goods provided under this Agreement.
12.1 Notice Requirement and Informal Dispute Resolution: Before either party may seek arbitration, the party must first send to the other party a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and the requested relief. A Notice to 3Doptix should be sent by nationally recognized overnight delivery service or first-class postage prepaid mail to: email@example.com After the Notice is received, you and 3Doptix may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute informally. If you and 3Doptix do not resolve the claim or dispute within 30 days after the Notice is received, either party may begin an arbitration proceeding. The amount of any settlement offer made by any party may not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator has determined the amount of the award, if any, to which either party is entitled.
12.2 Arbitration Rules: Arbitration shall be initiated through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), an established alternative dispute resolution provider (“ADR Provider”) that offers arbitration as set forth in this section. If AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an alternative ADR Provider. The rules of the ADR Provider shall govern all aspects of this arbitration, including but not limited to the method of initiating and/or demanding arbitration, except to the extent such rules are in conflict with this Agreement. The AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules governing the arbitration are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator. Any claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is less than Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US$10,000.00) may be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief. For claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) or more, the right to a hearing will be determined by the Arbitration Rules.
12.3 Additional Rules for Non-appearance Based Arbitration: If non-appearance arbitration is elected, the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or based solely on written submissions; the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties.
12.4 Authority of Arbitrator: If arbitration is initiated, the arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and 3Doptix, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the AAA Rules, and this Agreement. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and 3Doptix.
12.5 Waiver of Jury Trial: THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In the event any litigation should arise between you and 3Doptix in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND 3DOPTIX WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.
12.6 Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions: ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER.
12.7 Severability: If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
12.8 Right to Waive: Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Arbitration Agreement may be waived in writing by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Arbitration Agreement.
12.9 Survival of Agreement: This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with 3Doptix.
12.10 Emergency Equitable Relief: Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before a competent court in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration. A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of any other rights or obligations under this Arbitration Agreement.
12.11 Courts: In any circumstances where the foregoing Arbitration Agreement permits the parties to litigate in court, the parties hereby agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located in the State of New York, for such purpose.
13.1 Publicity: 3Doptix has the right to reference Customer and any End User in any materials, presentations, or media advertising or promote 3Doptix (including 3Doptix’s website) as a Service customer.
13.2 Governing Law: This Agreement and any action related thereto will be governed and interpreted by and under the laws of the State of New York, consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, without giving effect to any principles that provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to this Agreement. The seat of arbitration shall be New York State.

By using the 3Doptix Service, you represent and warrant that (i) you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties. The provisions of this Section 14(c) will survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason.
13.4 Communications and Notice: By using the 3Doptix Service, you consent to receiving certain electronic communications from 3Doptix relating to your subscription.

You agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures or other communications that 3Doptix sends to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including that such communications be in writing. In the event that the last email address you provided to 3Doptix is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you any notices required or permitted by the Agreement, 3Doptix’s dispatch of the email containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice. You should maintain copies of electronic communications by printing a paper copy or saving an electronic copy. Unless you opt out, you also consent to receive certain other communications from us, such as notifications of new 3Doptix features, promotional announcements and customer surveys via email.
