Agreement to Arbitrate
You and AppOfficer agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these TOS or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the AppOfficer Services or Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right: (i) to bring an individual action in small claims court and (ii) to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights (the action described in the foregoing clause (ii), an “IP Protection Action”). The exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any IP Protection Action will be the state and federal courts located in the Northern District of California and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts. You acknowledge and agree that you and AppOfficer are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and AppOfficer otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these TOS.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at http://www.adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_004175 and a separate form for California residents at http://www.adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_015822.) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
Arbitration Location and Procedure
Unless you and AppOfficer otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of the documents that you and AppOfficer submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award of damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. AppOfficer will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, AppOfficer will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Changes to Terms or Services” section above, if AppOfficer changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these TOS (or accepted any subsequent changes to these TOS), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to support@AppOfficer.com) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above or in the date of AppOfficer’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and AppOfficer in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted these TOS (or accepted any subsequent changes to these TOS).
AppOfficer may provide you with notices under these TOS, including those regarding changes to these TOS, including by but not limited to postings on the AppOfficer Services, email, SMS, MMS, text message, regular mail or other reasonable means now known or hereafter developed.

AppOfficer has developed a new feature for the AppOfficer Service referred to as the “Rewards Service Feature” which enables its customers to create, manage and offer their own rewards programs for their businesses (each a “Rewards Program”) and customer branded or third-party branded offers and rewards (“Rewards”) to Program Participants using the AppOfficer Service. As used herein “Program Participant” means an individual enrolled in a Rewards Program. For the purposes of this Services Addendum, references to the AppOfficer “Service” or “Services” in the Master Agreement and in this Services Addendum will include the “Rewards Service Feature.”
The subscription term for the Rewards Service Feature will be as set forth in the Master Agreement. AppOfficer may change, suspend or terminate all or any aspect of the Rewards Service Feature at any time for any reason without liability to Customer. Customer may terminate the Rewards Service Feature upon thirty (30) days prior written notice to AppOfficer. For the avoidance of doubt, the rest of the Service will not be affected by this termination.
