You agree that, by agreeing to the Terms, you and Function are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. The Terms evidence a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision. This arbitration provision, as set forth by the terms of this Section 16, shall survive termination of your use of our Services.
b. Claims not subject to arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you or Function may bring an action in your local small claims court seeking only individualized relief, so long as the action remains in that court and is not removed or appealed to a court of general jurisdiction. If your jurisdiction permits small claims court judgments to be removed or appealed to a court of general jurisdiction for a trial de novo, that appeal shall be resolved in arbitration in accordance with this arbitration provision. This arbitration provision does not preclude you or Function from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies or law enforcement. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, any dispute over the applicability and/or enforceability of any of the terms and/or conditions in this Section 16(b), shall be determined in a court of competent jurisdiction unless the parties mutually agree otherwise in writing. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, either Party may bring a claim arising out of and/or relating to intellectual property rights, or seek temporary or preliminary relief and/or specific performance, in any court of competent jurisdiction, without the posting of bond or other security.
c. Class Action Waiver. The arbitrator may award relief (including, but not limited to, damages, restitution, declaratory relief, and 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. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LE LAW, YOU AND FUNCTION EACH AGREE TO BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LE LAW, YOU AND FUNCTION EACH AGREE NOT TO PURSUE OR RECOVER ANY DAMAGES OR OTHER RELIEF IN CONNECTION WITH ANY CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, MASS ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL PROCEEDING, OR OTHER AGGREGATED PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Function agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s Claims. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the arbitrator may not preside over any form of a collective action, class action, mass action, private attorney general action, or other aggregated proceeding. If, after exhaustion of all appeals, any of the aforementioned prohibitions on non-individualized relief is found to be unenforceable with respect to a particular Claim then the parties agree that such a Claim or request for relief shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction after all other claims and requests for relief shall be arbitrated.
d. Arbitration procedures. A Party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other a written Notice of Dispute. A Notice of Dispute to Function should be addressed to Function Health, Inc., Attn: Legal Department, 5302 Cascades Court, College Station, TX 77845. A Notice of Dispute to you will be sent to the last address you provided to Function. A Notice of Dispute must (i) provide your name, address, phone number, and the email address we have on file for you; (ii) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (iii) set forth the specific relief sought. The Parties agree to negotiate regarding any claim or dispute subject to a Notice of Dispute for a period of not less than sixty (60) days from receipt of said Notice– and if the Parties do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within sixty (60) days after the Notice of Dispute is received, you or Function may commence arbitration with JAMS, which shall administer the arbitration under its Consumer Arbitration Rules in effect at the time (“JAMS Rules”), no later than the latest date permitted by the statute of limitations that would have applied to said a dispute if it had proceeded in a court of competent jurisdiction instead of in arbitration. You may obtain a copy of the JAMS Rules by visiting the JAMS website at jams.org. If the JAMS is unavailable to administer an arbitration, another provider will be selected by agreement of the parties or by the court pursuant to 9 U.S.C. § 5. Except as specified in this Agreement (e.g., limitations and exclusions around Claims and Losses), the arbitrator can award the same remedies available under applicable law that a court can award. The arbitrator may consider rulings in other arbitrations involving different customers, but an arbitrator’s ruling will not be binding in proceedings involving different customers. Unless you and Function agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place by videoconference or by telephone or resolve claims or defenses on the basis of papers submitted by the parties, or to the extent not permitted, at the JAMS location nearest your billing address. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, a single arbitrator will conduct the arbitration – as agreed-upon by the Parties within ten (10) business days following the commencement of Arbitration, or as alternatively determined pursuant to the JAMS rules – and said arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision. The award shall be final and binding on the parties; judgment may be entered on the award by any court with jurisdiction and by any state or federal court in Houston, Texas, the jurisdiction and venue of which you and Function both agree, and such a judgment shall not be subject to modification, appeal, or vacation except as allowed by Sections 10 and 11 of the Federal Arbitration Act, which the Parties hereby agree apply to these Terms. Except as otherwise explicitly stated in this Agreement, the arbitrator shall have the sole and final authority to decide on the validity, applicability, and scope of the arbitration provisions of this agreement, as well as the arbitrability of a Party’s claim(s).
e. Arbitration fees. If Function initiates arbitration or you initiate arbitration of claims valued at $25,000 or less, Function will pay all JAMS filing, administration, case management, hearing, and arbitrator fees (“JAMS Fees”), so long as you have fully complied with the Notice of Dispute requirements in Section 16.d. If you seek relief valued at greater than $25,000, the payment of JAMS Fees shall be governed by the JAMS Rules. Nothing in this Section 16.e prevents the arbitrator from reallocating the JAMS Fees in accordance with the JAMS Rules in the event that the arbitrator finds that a claim violates the standards set in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11.
f. 30-Day period to reject arbitration. You may opt out of this Section 16 of the Terms within thirty (30) days of execution by providing written notice to Function Health, Inc., Attention: Legal Dept., 5302 Cascades Court, College Station, TX 77845. To be valid, an opt-out notice must (i) include your name, the email address we have on file for you, and a statement that you are rejecting the arbitration provision in the Terms; and (ii) be received by Function within 30 days after your initial acceptance of the Terms. If you elect to opt-out under this paragraph, you agree that all other terms and conditions herein stated and stated in other agreements between you and shall remain in full force and effect; that includes, without limitation any other arbitration agreements between you and Function.
g. Time Limitation on Claims. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you and Function agree that any claim, dispute, controversy, matter, or cause of action arising out of and/or relating to Function, our Affiliates, these Terms, our Services, our Products, a transaction in connection with one or more Products and/or Services, PII, and/or one or more of third-party products and/or services arising out of and/or relating to our Services and/or Products shall be permanently barred if it is not filed and/or submitted for arbitration within one year of when the alleging party knew or reasonably should have known of the issue or matter giving rise thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this paragraph shall not apply to the filing and/or submission of any counterclaim.
a. Except as expressly permitted otherwise in writing by Function, you may not assign, delegate, sell, or transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Terms. Any purported assignment or delegation in violation of this Section 17.a is null and void. No assignment or delegation relieves you of any of your obligations under these Terms. Notwithstanding anything herein contrary, Function may freely assign, delegate, sell, and/or transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms– and any assets relating to, arising out of, and/or concerning these Terms – including without limitation circumstances of sale, merger, acquisition, reincorporation, consolidation, reorganization, or other change of control. These Terms will be binding on the Parties’ heirs, permitted assigns, administrators, and other legal represents, and shall inure to the benefit of the Parties and any of its successors and/or assigns.
b. You acknowledge and agree that Function shall not hold any liability or responsibility for any Losses – or be deemed to have defaulted or breached these Terms – for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any term of these Terms that results from factors beyond the scope of our reasonable control. This includes without limitation, acts of God, weather, the slowdown or shutdown of carriers, transportation, and/or utilities, strikes and protests, border delays, health crises and/or pandemic illnesses, closures and/or lockdowns, acts of warfare and/or terrorism, and actions taken by government agencies.
c. If any of the Terms herein – or any portion(s) of any terms or conditions – are held unenforceable, the impact of that unenforceability (i.e. limitation or exclusion of terms) will be construed as narrowly as possible to the extent permitted by applicable law and it does not invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction; moreover, the remainder of these Terms– and all other portions thereof – shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect to the extent legally permissible.
d. Any translation of these Terms, your Lab Results, and/or the FH Content is merely provided as a convenience. Any discrepancy or dispute involving a translated version of these Terms, your Lab Results, and/or the FH Content and the English version thereof shall be resolved in favor of the English version. Our headings and section titles in these Terms are provided strictly for your convenience; they have no binding or representative effect on either Party.
e. No waiver under these Terms is effective unless it is in writing, identified as a waiver to these Terms, and signed by an authorized representative of the Party waiving its right(s). The Parties agree that any failure by either Party to require the other’s strict adherence to any term or condition herein shall, in no manner, be construed as a waiver of any right(s) by that Party, nor shall such a failure be construed to remove or dilute the effect of any term, condition, or requirement stated in these Terms. These Terms may not be amended or modified unless specified in writing and bearing the consent of both Parties.
f. Insofar as these Terms include any errors or ambiguities related to spelling, grammar, or syntax – or any other clear errors or ambiguities – these errors and ambiguities shall be construed to reflect the intent of the Parties. This includes, without limitation: (a) any ambiguities, inconsistencies, misuses, or uncertainties around the usage of the word “and” vs. “or” vs. “and/or”; and (b) any ambiguities, inconsistencies, misuses, or uncertainties around the usage of the word “including” – which shall mean “including without limitation,” rather than as point of exclusion, unless otherwise noted; (c) any ambiguities, inconsistencies, misuses, or uncertainties around the usage of the word “Service” vs. “Services” vs. “Service(s)” - which shall not render any language inapplicable by virtue of the fact that it does or does not refer to more than one (1) Service. The Parties agree that the Terms shall be construed as if drafted jointly by the Parties, and no presumption or burden of proof shall arise favoring or burdening any of the Parties by virtue of the authorship of any term or condition herein appearing; the language used herein will be deemed to be the language chosen by the Parties hereto to express their mutual intent, and no rule of strict construction will be applied against any Party.
g. All notices, requests, consents, claims, demands, waivers, and other communications from you to Function in connection with these Terms (each, a “Notice”) shall be in writing and addressed to Function at the address on this website. All Notices shall be delivered by personal delivery, nationally recognized overnight courier (with all fees pre-paid) or certified or registered mail (in each case, return receipt requested, postage prepaid).
h. These Terms benefit solely the Parties and their permitted assigns and nothing in these Terms, express or implied, confers on any other person or entity any legal or equitable right, benefit, or remedy of any nature whatsoever under or by reason of these Terms.
