You and Null Unit agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms or NearlyBird through final and binding arbitration by a single arbitrator, except as set forth below. This includes disputes arising out of or relating to interpretation or application of this “Disputes" section, including its enforceability, revocability, or validity.

The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in the State of Washington, or any other location we agree to. The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees.

Either you or Null Unit may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in King County, Washington. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of NearlyBird, or intellectual property infringement without first engaging in arbitration. If the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in King County, Washington to resolve your claim.

You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren't allowed. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this section will be deemed void.

Entire Agreement

These Terms set forth the entire agreement between you and Null Unit. It supersedes and replaces any prior understandings and agreements, whether oral, written or implied between you and Null Unit.

Waiver, Severability, Assignment

The failure of Null Unit to enforce any provision of these Terms shall not be a waiver to do so later. If any provision of these Terms are found to be unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in full effect. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms.
