Resolution of Disputes

Governing Law and Jurisdiction

These Terms will be governed by the laws of India, without regard to conflict of law provisions. You and we expressly agree that any claim or dispute must be resolved exclusively by mediation or arbitration in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, except as described in the Agreement to Arbitrate below or as otherwise mutually agreed by the parties.

Informal Resolution

RTS ARTS LLP aims to provide full consumer satisfaction and meet your expectations through our Services. However, there may be instances when you feel that we have made a mistake or left you disappointed in some way. In those instances, we are committed to working with you to reach a reasonable resolution that satisfies you; however, we can only do this if we know about and understand your concern. Therefore, for any problem or dispute that you may have with us, you acknowledge and agree that you will, as an initial matter, email us at partnerships@roadtosangam.com to describe to us the nature of your complaint or dissatisfaction. This should lead to resolution, but if for some reason your problem or dispute is not resolved satisfactorily within thirty (30) days after our receipt of your written description of it, you agree to the further dispute resolution provisions below. To the extent permitted by Applicable Law, the informal resolution process described in this paragraph is a precondition to pursuing any other process, so please do not forget to contact us first.

Dispute Resolution through mediation and arbitration

The parties may seek to settle their dispute through mediation. The following clause shall be the essence of all the Mediation for dispute resolution; –

“In the event of any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this contract, or a breach thereof, the parties hereto agree first to try and settle the dispute by mediation, administered by the International Centre for Dispute Resolution under its Mediation Rules, before resorting to arbitration, litigation, or some other dispute resolution procedure.”

Mediation would be scheduled independently of arbitration. In mediation, an impartial and independent mediator only assists the parties and does not have the authority to make a binding decision or award. The place of mediation shall be Chennai, Tamil Nadu (India) and the language of the mediation shall be English only.

In case the dispute remains unresolved the parties shall Arbitrate.

By electing Arbitration, the parties agree to arbitrate any claims, to the fullest extent permitted by the Applicable Laws of India, unless you opt-out. The parties agree that all such claims will be arbitrated on an individual basis and not as a proposed class action. The Arbitrator will have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of these Terms and this Agreement to arbitrate, including but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of these Terms of this Agreement to Arbitrate is void or voidable. The arbitration will be decided and appointed by a sole Arbitrator in accordance with the rules of international commercial arbitration seated in India.

You and we agree that, except as expressly set forth below, the sole and exclusive forum and remedy for any and all disputes and claims that cannot be resolved informally and that relate in any way to or arising out of your use of the Services and these Terms or to any products or services sold or distributed through the Services, will be final and binding arbitration, except to the extent that either party has, in any manner, infringed upon or violated, or threatened to infringe upon or violate, the rights of either party or any third party’s patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, privacy or publicity rights or is seeking to vindicate public rights, in which case both sides acknowledge that arbitration is not an adequate remedy and that injunctive or other appropriate relief may be sought by either party and/or the applicable third parties on an individual basis in a court having appropriate territorial jurisdiction. You and we acknowledge that this Agreement to Arbitrate affects interstate commerce and that the arbitration law and regulations apply to arbitrations under this Agreement to Arbitrate (despite any other choice of law provision).

Means and Fees

In the interest of efficiency and fairness, you and we agree that the arbitration proceeding will be based solely on written submissions, unless the arbitrator deems an oral hearing strictly necessary. Should the arbitrator deem an oral hearing to be necessary, such hearing will be conducted via telephone or other electronic or technical means, or if that’s not possible, in-person in a location mutually agreed upon between the parties. The language of the arbitration will be English. The arbitrator’s award will be final and binding, and judgment may be entered upon it by any court having jurisdiction thereof. Each party will have the right to use legal counsel in connection with arbitration at its own expense. We are not responsible for reimbursing you for costs incurred by you for legal counsel, travel or other out-of-pocket costs or expenses. We will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.

Right to Opt-Out

YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO OPT-OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE by sending an email to partnerships@roadtosangam.com. Such opt-out must be given within the earlier of thirty (30) days of approving your first purchase of products on the Services or your first upload of artwork to the Services or if we make any changes to this Agreement to Arbitrate which alter your rights, within thirty (30) days after the effective date of such revision to this Agreement to Arbitrate. Any opt-out received after such deadline will be ineffective and this Agreement to Arbitrate will remain in full force and effect, except as expressly provided above. If you opt-out of this Agreement to Arbitrate, we also will not be bound by the terms of this Agreement to Arbitrate.

Class Action Waiver

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NO ARBITRATION OR OTHER CLAIM UNDER THESE TERMS WILL BE JOINED TO ANY OTHER ARBITRATION OR CLAIM, INCLUDING ANY ARBITRATION OR CLAIM INVOLVING ANY OTHER CURRENT OR FORMER USER OF THE SERVICES, AND NO CLASS, COLLECTIVE, AND/OR REPRESENTATIVE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE PERMITTED. In the event that this CLASS ACTION WAIVER is deemed unenforceable with respect to any particular claim otherwise subject to arbitration, then that claim will not proceed in arbitration but rather will be resolved in a court of competent jurisdiction. If that occurs, however, this Agreement to Arbitrate and this Class Action Waiver still will be fully enforceable as to all other claims, which must be resolved in arbitration on an individual basis.

Waiver of Trial by Judge

You and we agree and understand that by using arbitration to resolve disputes, you and we are giving up any right that you or we may have to a judge trial with regard to all claims subject to this agreement to arbitrate. you and we further agree that any claim heard in a court of competent jurisdiction will be heard by a judge under Applicable Laws.

Limitation of Actions

The Parties agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising from or relating to use of the Services, or these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, or will be forever barred.

Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
