If you are an Invoiced User, for each of your Hubdoc accounts, you are responsible for notifying Additional Users of the entity you have entered into these Terms with.

Applicability of Arbitration Agreement & Rules. Any controversy, claim or dispute arising
out of, relating to, or in respect of these Terms, including their negotiation, validity,
existence, breach, termination, construction or application, or the rights, duties or obligations
of any party, or the rights, duties or obligations of any party derived from or associated with
these Terms (a “Dispute”), shall be referred to and determined by a single
arbitrator in a final and binding arbitration (collectively, the “Arbitration
Agreement”). Unless otherwise agreed to, all arbitration proceedings shall be held in
English. This Arbitration Agreement applies to you and the Company, 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 the Terms.
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
the Company should be sent to our address, which can be found on the Invoiced User’s invoice, with a copy to email@example.com.
After the Notice is received, you and the Company may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute
informally. If you and the Company do not resolve the claim or dispute within thirty (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.
Selection of Arbitrator, Seat, Venue. If the parties have not agreed upon the arbitrator
within 14 days, the Company shall ask an independent third party to appoint a single
arbitrator. The seat of the arbitration shall be the same as the law
governing these Terms. The costs and expenses of the arbitrator shall be shared equally
between the parties. A party to the arbitration has no right of appeal from any award of the
arbitrator, whether characterized as final, interim, interlocutory or
partial. All Disputes
referred to arbitration (including the scope of the agreement to arbitrate, the law relating to
the enforcement of the agreement to arbitrate, any relevant limitation periods, the law governing
the procedure of the arbitration, the law relating to available remedies, set-off claims and
conflict of laws rules) shall be governed by the law identified in Section 12.1, and each party hereby
irrevocably consents to venue identified in Section 12.1, and to the jurisdiction of competent
courts identified in Section 12.1 for all litigation that may be brought, subject to the
requirements for arbitration hereunder, with respect to the terms of, and the transactions and
relationships contemplated by, these Terms. Notwithstanding this provision, a party to
these Terms may take such steps as are permitted or required to enforce an award made by an
arbitrator. You agree that you will not contest venue, and you waive any rights that you may have
to initiate, transfer, or change the venue of any litigation arising from or related to these
Additional Rules for Non-Appearance Based Arbitration. If non-appearance based 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 agreed by the parties.
Time Limits. If you or the Company pursue arbitration, the arbitration action must be
initiated and/or demanded within the statute of limitations (i.e., the legal deadline for filing
a claim) and within any deadline imposed under the rules governing arbitration in the applicable jurisdiction for the pertinent claim.
Authority of Arbitrator. If arbitration is initiated, the arbitrator will decide the
rights and liabilities, if any, of you and the Company, 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 rules governing arbitration in the applicable jurisdiction, and the Terms. 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 the Company.
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 a
court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In the event any litigation should arise
between you and the Company in any court in a suit to vacate or enforce an
arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND THE COMPANY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead
electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.
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.
Confidentiality. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including but not limited to
the award of the arbitrator and compliance therewith, shall be strictly confidential. The parties
agree to maintain confidentiality unless otherwise required by law. The deemed undertaking rule
shall apply. This paragraph shall not prevent a party from submitting to a court of law any
information necessary to enforce these Terms, to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek
injunctive or equitable relief.
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 these Terms shall
continue in full force and effect.
Right to Waive. Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Arbitration
Agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver shall not
waive or affect any other portion of this Arbitration Agreement.
Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your
relationship with Company.
Emergency Equitable Relief. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek emergency
equitable relief before a court of competent jurisdiction 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.
Claims Not Subject to Arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, claims of defamation and
infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark or trade
secrets shall not be subject to this Arbitration Agreement.
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 identified in Section 12.1 for such purpose.
The Service may be subject to U.S., Canadian and other export control laws, and may be subject to
export or import regulations in other countries. You agree to comply with such export control laws,
and specifically, you agree not to export, re-export, or transfer, directly or indirectly, any U.S.
technical data acquired from Company, or any products utilizing such data, in
violation of the
United States export laws or regulations.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us regarding the use of the Service.
Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not operate as a
waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and
have no legal or contractual effect. The word “including” means “including without limitation”. If
any provision of these Terms is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, to the
maximum extent possible, the determination shall not affect the enforceability of any other
provision. These Terms, and your rights and obligations herein, may not be assigned, subcontracted,
delegated, or otherwise transferred by you without Company’s prior written consent, and any
attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be
null and void. Company may freely assign these Terms. The terms and conditions set forth in these
Terms shall be binding upon assignees.
