IMPORTANT AUTOMATIC RENEWAL AND SUBSCRIPTION-BASED PRODUCTS

All services that you purchase are offered and purchased on automatic renewal. Except for reasons described below in this section, automatic renewal automatically renews the applicable Service upon expiration of the then-current term for a renewal period equal in time to the most recent service period (Except for domain names which may renew for the original service period). InterServer will automatically renew the applicable service when it comes up for renewal and will take payment from the payment method associated with the Service(s) in your account. If you do not wish for any service to automatically renew, you may elect to cancel renewal, in which case, your Services will terminate upon expiration of the then-current term, unless you manually renew your services before that date. In other words, should you elect to cancel your product and fail to manually renew your Services before they expire, you may experience an interruption or loss of Services, and InterServer shall not be liable to you or any third party regarding the same. You can cancel anytime by accessing our customer portal, selecting the active service you wish to cancel and click on the cancel service link, emailing us at billing@interserver.net, calling 877-566-8398, or mailing Interserver, 110 Meadowlands PKWY, Suite 100; Secaucus, NJ 07094.

If for any reason InterServer is unable to charge your Payment Method for the full amount owed, or if InterServer receives notification of a chargeback, reversal, payment dispute, or is charged a penalty for any fee it previously charged to your Payment Method, you agree that InterServer may pursue all available lawful remedies in order to obtain payment, including but not limited to, immediate cancellation, without notice to you, of any domain names or Services registered or renewed on your behalf. InterServer also reserves the right to charge you reasonable “administrative” fees" for (i) tasks InterServer may perform outside the normal scope of its Services, (ii) additional time and/or costs InterServer may incur in providing its Services, and/or (iii) your noncompliance with this Agreement (as determined by InterServer in its sole and absolute discretion).

These administrative fees or processing fees will be billed to the Payment Method you have on file with InterServer. InterServer may offer product-level pricing in various currencies. The transaction will be processed in the selected currency and the pricing displayed during the checkout process will be the actual amount submitted for payment. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or other charges, which may be added to the final amount that appears on your bank statement or post as a separate amount. Please check with the issuer of your Payment Method for details. In addition, regardless of the selected currency, you acknowledge and agree that you may be charged Value Added Tax ("VAT"), Goods and Services Tax ("GST"), or other localized fees and/or taxes, based on your bank and/or the country indicated in your billing address section.

ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

ALL CLAIMS OR DISPUTES IN ANY WAY RELATING TO OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU SHALL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT, THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED.

The arbitration shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its then-applicable Commercial Arbitration Rules or, as appropriate, its Consumer Arbitration Rules. The AAA’s rules are available at http://www.adr.org/. The arbitrator will, among other things, have the power to rule on his or her own jurisdiction, including any objections with respect to the existence, scope, or validity of the arbitration agreement or to the arbitrability of any Claims. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees shall be governed by the AAA’s rules. The arbitration shall be conducted in the English language by a single independent and neutral arbitrator. For any hearing conducted in person as part of the arbitration, you agree that such hearing shall be conducted in Secaucus, New Jersey or, if the Consumer Arbitration Rules apply, another location reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances, as determined by the arbitrator. The decision of the arbitrator on all matters relating to the Claim shall be final and binding. Judgment on the arbitral award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

WE EACH AGREE THAT CLAIMS OR DISPUTES IN ANY WAY RELATING TO OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU SHALL BE RESOLVED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, COLLECTIVE, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, ARBITRATION OR OTHER SIMILAR PROCESS AND EXPRESSLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO HAVE A CLAIM DETERMINED OR RESOLVED ON A CLASS, COLLECTIVE, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE BASIS. IF FOR ANY REASON THE PROVISIONS OF THE PRECEDING SENTENCE ARE HELD TO BE INVALID OR UNENFORCEABLE IN A CASE IN WHICH CLASS, COLLECTIVE, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIMS HAVE BEEN ASSERTED, THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION REQUIRING BINDING ARBITRATION SHALL LIKEWISE BE UNENFORCEABLE AND NULL AND VOID. IF FOR ANY REASON A CLAIM PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN IN ARBITRATION, WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND AGREE THAT SUCH CLAIM SHALL BE BROUGHT ONLY IN A COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION IN SECAUCUS, NEW JERSEY. YOU HEREBY SUBMIT TO THE PERSONAL JURISDICTION AND VENUE OF SUCH COURTS AND WAIVE ANY OBJECTION ON THE GROUNDS OF VENUE, FORUM NON-CONVENIENS OR ANY SIMILAR GROUNDS WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUCH CLAIM.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, we may each may seek injunctive relief and any other equitable remedies from any court of competent jurisdiction to protect our intellectual property rights, whether in aid of, pending or independently of the resolution of any dispute pursuant to the arbitration procedures set forth in this Section.

You may elect to opt-out (exclude yourself) from the final, binding individual arbitration procedure specified in these Terms by sending a written letter to us at the address InterServer; 110 Meadowlands PKWY; Suite 100; Secaucus, NJ 07094 within thirty (30) days of your initial assent to these Terms (including your first purchase of any service or use of our websites) that specifies: (i) your name; (ii) your mailing address; and (iii) your request to be excluded from the final, binding individual arbitration procedure and waiver of class and representative proceedings specified in this Section. In the event that you opt-out consistent with the procedure set forth above, all other terms shall continue to apply, including the waiver of class action rights.

If we implement any material change to this Section, such change shall not apply to any Claim for which you provided written notice to us before the implementation of the change.
