CHANGES TO TERMS
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material, we will provide written notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion. By continuing to access or use the Site after any revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, you are no longer authorized to use the Site.
These Terms and the User License are effective until terminated by Baan Thai, with or without written notice. Your rights under the User License will terminate automatically without notice from Baan Thai if you fail to comply with any terms or conditions of the User License. Upon termination of the User License, you shall cease all use of the Site. Upon termination you may no longer access the Site. All terms herein intended to survive termination (including, without limitation, limitations of liability and dispute resolution), shall so survive. Without in any way limiting any other language elsewhere in these Terms, Baan Thai shall in no way be liable to you for any termination as described in this Section.
GENERAL LEGAL PROVISIONS
These Terms are governed by the laws of the Country of Thailand, without regard to conflicts of laws principles, as if this were a contract wholly entered into and wholly performed within the Country of Thailand. Any disputes or differences between the parties arising out of these Terms which the parties are unable to resolve themselves shall be submitted to and resolved by arbitration as provided herein below. Notwithstanding the arbitration obligations, Baan Thai shall be entitled to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction located in Bangkok, Thailand and you consent to personal jurisdiction of any court of competent jurisdiction in Bangkok, Thailand. Access to or use of this Site is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these Terms, including, without limitation, this paragraph.
If any provision in these Terms is invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect, and the invalid unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision.
No waiver of any breach of any provision of these Terms shall constitute a waiver of any prior, concurrent, or subsequent breach of the same or any other provisions hereof, and no waiver shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party. All rights not expressly granted herein are hereby reserved. You may not assign your rights under these Terms to any party; we may assign our rights under these Terms without condition. These Terms will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors, and permitted assigns. All rights not expressly granted herein are hereby reserved to Baan Thai.
This Agreement requires the use of arbitration on an individual basis to resolve disputes, rather than jury trials or class actions, and also limits the remedies available to you in the event of a dispute. Please read this carefully. It affects your rights.
Except for a claim by Baan Thai of infringement or misappropriation of its patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret and/or Baan Thai’s ability to seek injunctive or other equitable relief, any and all disputes between you and Baan Thai arising under or related in any way to these Terms must be resolved through binding arbitration as described in this section. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be interpreted broadly. It includes, but is not limited to, all claims and disputes relating to your use of the Site. You agree that by entering into these Terms, you and Baan Thai are each waiving the right to trial by jury or to participate in a class action. You and Baan Thai 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. Any arbitration will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted.
The arbitration will be governed by the rules as agreed to by the parties in advance in writing. For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is $10,000 or less, you and Baan Thai must abide by the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on written submissions; and (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties in advance in writing. If the claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the rules agreed to by the parties in advance in writing, and the hearing (if any) must take place in Bangkok, Thailand. The arbitrator’s ruling is binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event this agreement to arbitrate is held unenforceable by a court, then the disputes that would otherwise have been arbitrated shall be exclusively brought in the applicable courts located in Bangkok, Thailand. Any arbitration proceedings held hereunder shall be confidential.
ATTORNEY’S FEES AND COSTS
Should it become necessary for any party to these Terms to bring a claim in arbitration and/or litigation to enforce any provision herein, or for damages on account of any breach of these Terms, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover from the other party or parties all costs and expenses incurred in the arbitration and/or litigation, which includes but is not limited to the recovery of reasonable attorney’s fees and court costs.
