Any further action, claim or remedy against the infringing user must be undertaken by the aggrieved user.

17. Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY - IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT
17.1 Initial Dispute Resolution
The parties shall use their best efforts to engage directly to settle any dispute, claim, ques tion, or disagreement and engage in good faith negotiations which shall be a condition to ei ther party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
17.2 Binding Arbitration
If the parties do not reach an agreed upon solution within a period of 30 days from the time informal dispute resolution under the Initial Dispute Resolution provision begins, then either party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve claims, subject to the terms set forth below.
Specifically, any dispute that is not resolved under the Initial Dispute Resolution provision shall be finally settled under the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Com merce. The following shall apply in respect of such arbitration: (i) the number of arbitrators shall be three (one nominated by each party and one nominated by the ICC); (ii) the decision of the arbitrators will be binding and enforceable against the parties and a judgment upon any award rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereto (provided that in no event will the arbitrator have the authority to make any award that pro vides for punitive or exemplary damages or to award damages excluded by these Terms or in excess of the limitations contained in these Terms); (iii) the seat, or legal place, of arbitra tion shall be the City of Panama, Panama; and (iv) the language to be used in the arbitral proceedings shall be English, any documents submitted as evidence that are in another lan guage must be accompanied by an English translation and the award will be in the English language. Claimants and respondents shall bear its or their own costs of the arbitration, in cluding attorney's fees, and share equally the arbitrators' fees and ICC's administrative costs. For purposes of cost sharing, all claimants shall be considered one party and all respondents shall be considered one party. The parties shall maintain strict confidentiality with respect to all aspects of any arbitration commenced pursuant to these Terms and shall not disclose the fact, conduct or outcome of the arbitration to any non-parties or non-participants, except to the extent required by applicable Law or to the extent necessary to recognize, confirm or en force the final award or decision in the arbitration, without the prior written consent of all parties to the arbitration.
17.3 Class Action Waiver
The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND THE OOKEENGA AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. If any court or arbitra tor determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforce able for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes. 4-exception-litigation of Intellectual Property and Small Court Claims Notwithstanding the parties' decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring an action in state or federal court to protect its Intellectual Property Rights. Either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court's jurisdiction.
17.5 30-day Right to Opt-Out
You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to the fol lowing email address: [email protected]. Your notice must be sent within 30 days of your first use of the Tools, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those paragraphs.
