You won't be held responsible for any such activity by any of E-University, its content providers, instructors, contributors, sponsors, and other business partners (collectively, the "E-University Parties"). Although we will be sorry to see you depart, you are free to cease utilizing our services whenever you like.

Your physical location determines where you are. It is strictly forbidden to use a virtual private network service, IP routing services, or another such service to get around these restrictions. You represent that your name does not appear on any government sanctions, debarment, or exclusion lists (collectively, "Sanctions Lists"), export-control related restricted party lists, or lists of forbidden, denied or unverified parties. If you are added to any Sanctions List, you will immediately stop using the Services. You further guarantee that you won't export, re-export, transfer, or otherwise make use of the Services in a way that would contravene any relevant laws to any entity that is listed on a sanctions list.

Legal system and Location

SIMI Swiss, manages the Services, with the exception of the provisions made below. You acknowledge that the laws of Switzerland, excluding its rules on conflicts of law, shall govern these Terms. You and E-University agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of and exclusive venue in the courts situated in and serving Zug, Switzerland, as the legal forum for any dispute relating to these Terms that is not subject to binding arbitration.

Any mandatory consumer safeguards under the law of the nation where we direct Services to you and where you have your usual residence shall not be affected by this clause.

Waiver of Class Actions and Binding Arbitration

You and SIMI Swiss/E-University agree to submit any and all disputes, claims, or controversies of any kind, whether grounded in statute, rule, constitution, common law, equity, or any other legal basis or theory, and whether pre-existing, present, or future, that arises out of or relates to our Services, these Terms, and/or any other relationship or dispute between you and us, such as without limitation I the scope, applicability, or otherwise of I the Services;

 

Any and all Claims must be brought to final and binding arbitration in line with the current version of the Swiss Law, as amended. In the event of any conflict between this arbitration provision and the Rules, the arbitration provision shall prevail. If you opt to start the arbitration process, you agree to pay the $200 filing fee (or any other amount specified by the Rules), and we agree to pay the remaining filing fee and any further deposits needed to start the arbitration process. The costs of the arbitration hearing, including the arbitrator's fees, will be covered by us; however, other expenditures, like legal fees and travel costs to the arbitration, must be paid in accordance with the Rules and any relevant laws. Any costs related to the arbitration that we start will be covered by us. All Claims shall be resolved by a single, impartial arbitrator chosen in line with the Rules.

 

The arbitrator must be a retired judge or an active member in good standing of the bar in any UK state who has been actively practicing law for at least five years. The arbitrator must uphold legal claims of privilege. Regardless of which side wins the arbitration, and unless otherwise specified above or inconsistent with relevant law, each party is responsible for paying its own attorney, expert, and witness expenses. You will have the chance to attend the hearing and be heard in any arbitration proceedings, which will be held in the federal judicial district where you currently reside. The arbitrator's ruling will be final, enforceable in any federal or state court with jurisdiction, and binding on the parties. You and I agree that the arbitration shall be kept private and that neither the existence of the arbitration nor any aspect of it (including, without limitation, any pleadings, briefs or other documents submitted or exchanged, any testimony or other oral submissions, and any awards) will be disclosed to any third party outside of the arbitration unless such disclosure is legitimately required in court proceedings involving the arbitration or by applicable disclosure rules and regulations.

 

In relation to any Claim, neither you nor E-University may represent a class of claimants or take part on behalf of a group of claimants. Arbitration of the Claims cannot be done on a class- or representative-based basis. Only your individual Claims and/or those of E-University can be decided by the arbitrator. The arbitrator is not permitted to combine or join the claims of other parties or individuals who may be in a comparable situation. As a result, you and I agree that our arbitration will not be governed by the Supplementary Rules for Class Arbitrations. Regardless of any applicable state law, this arbitration provision and the rules governing the arbitration it contemplates are governed by the laws of the Switzerland.

 

You or we may still file a complaint with a federal, state, or local government agency despite this arbitration agreement. As long as the case is still pending in small claims court and progresses only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis, you and we also have the ability to use self-help remedies like set-off or to file qualifying claims there. The right to seek provisional or ancillary relief, such as pre-arbitral attachments or preliminary injunctions, remains open to both you and us, and any such request won't be interpreted as violating any of the terms of this agreement or as a waiver of the right to have disagreements resolved through arbitration as specified in this clause.

 

Except for the restrictions against any Claim being handled on a class or representative basis, a court may sever any part of this binding arbitration and class action waiver section that it finds to be unenforceable, and the remaining parts of this arbitration provision will still be valid and enforceable. Any waiver of any term of this Section must be put in writing and signed by the party making the waiver in order to be valid. Any other provision of these Terms will not be waived or affected by such a waiver.

 

A COURT ACTION, A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM, AND THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THE RULES ARE JUST A FEW OF THE RIGHTS LIMITED BY THIS BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER SECTION. ADR MAY ALSO PREVENT YOU OR E-UNIVERSITY FROM RECOVERING RIGHTS THAT YOU OR E-UNIVERSITY WOULD HAVE IN COURT.

Changes to the Terms

We reserve the right to change the Terms at any moment, based solely on our discretion. Any changes to the Terms will take effect right away once we post them. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you of any major changes to the Terms by means of a notice on the website, an email, another method, or a combination of methods. Your continued use of the Services following the posting of any modifications, whether or whether you get notice, indicates your legally binding acceptance of the updated Terms.

Suspension; Waiver

No other terms of these Terms will be affected if it turns out that a particular provision is not enforceable. If you violate these Terms and we don't take immediate action, it doesn't mean that we are waiving any of our rights (such as taking action in the future).

If you wish the Services to commence during the 14-day withdrawal period, you must make a specific request and agree that you will lose your right to withdraw after the service has been performed in full. If you exercise your right of withdrawal prior to the completion of the Services, you will be responsible for our reasonable expenses, which will be proportional to what has been delivered up until the time you notified us that you were exercising your right of withdrawal.

 

You must provide evidence that you are exercising your right of withdrawal in line with this article. Except as otherwise stated in this article, you shall incur no obligation as a result of exercising your right of withdrawal.
