24 Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH US AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU MAY SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
a. ARBITRATION: To the fullest extent permitted under applicable law and in the interest of resolving disputes between you and the Company in an expedient and cost-effective manner, you and the Company agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement (collectively, “Disputes”) shall be settled by binding individual arbitration under the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified in this Agreement. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org.
b. If you are a resident of any European Union country or the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Norway or Iceland, the governing law and forum shall be the laws and courts of your usual place of residence.
c. SMALL CLAIMS COURT: As an alternative to arbitration, you and the Company each retain the right to bring any Dispute in any small claims court with jurisdiction over the Dispute.
d. PLACE OF ARBITRATION/ CONDUCT OF HEARING(S): If you reside in the United States, then the place of the arbitration shall be, at your option, either (a) the state where you reside, or (b) New Castle County, Delaware. If you reside outside the United States, then the Arbitrator shall determine the place of arbitration based on the factors stated in the AAA Rules. Regardless of the place of arbitration, the Company agrees that any required arbitration hearing(s) may be conducted, at your option, by phone or video conference rather than in person. The arbitration may also be decided solely on the submission of documents to the Arbitrator, if you and the Company both so agree (which agreement must be made in writing and provided to the Arbitrator). The procedural law applicable to the conduct of the arbitration shall be the law of the place of arbitration and the AAA Rules. The Federal Arbitration Act shall govern all arbitration proceedings (and any related and/or resulting court proceedings) in the United States.
e. NOTICE OF DISPUTE/ INFORMAL SETTLEMENT EFFORTS: At least 30 days prior to initiating an arbitration, you and the Company each agree to notify the other party of the dispute in writing (the “Notice of Dispute”) and attempt in good faith to negotiate an informal resolution. You must send your Notice of Dispute to: Flo Health UK Limited, 27 Old Gloucester Street, London, England, WC1N 3AX. The Company will send any Notice of Dispute to the email address associated with your Account. A Notice of Dispute must include: the name of the person bringing the Dispute and that person’s preferred contact information, a brief description of the dispute, and the relief sought. If you and the Company are unable to resolve the dispute within the 30-day period, only then may either party commence arbitration by filing a written Demand for Arbitration (see www.adr.org) with the American Arbitration Association and providing a copy to the other party as specified in the AAA Rules.
f. ARBITRATION FEES AND COSTS: Your share of administrative fees and arbitrator fees and costs (collectively, “Arbitration Costs”) shall be governed by the AAA Rules. Either party may request the Arbitrator to award the requesting party some or all of its attorneys’ fees and costs (in addition to some or all of its Arbitration Costs) upon proving that the other party has asserted a claim, cross-claim, or defence that is groundless in fact or law, brought in bad faith or for the purpose of harassment, or is otherwise frivolous, pursuant to applicable law and the AAA Rules.
g. FORM, EFFECT, AND SCOPE OF ARBITRATION AWARD: The Arbitrator’s judgment and award shall be final, binding and enforceable, subject to review only in accordance with applicable law governing the enforcement and annulment of arbitration awards. Judgment on the Award may be entered in any court with proper jurisdiction, pursuant to applicable law. The Arbitrator may award any relief allowed by law or the AAA Rules, but declaratory or injunctive relief may be awarded only on an individual basis to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.
i. ARBITRATION OPT-OUT: You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by sending a written communication to Flo Health UK Limited, 27 Old Gloucester Street, London, England, WC1N 3AX, postmarked within 30 days after first accepting this Agreement. Your written communication must provide your name and the email address associated with your Account and must state that you decline this arbitration agreement.
j. CHANGES: If the Company changes this Section 22 after the date you last accepted this Agreement (or accepted any subsequent changes to this Agreement), you may reject that change by sending us written notice to Flo Health UK Limited, 27 Old Gloucester Street, London, England, WC1N 3AX, postmarked within 30 days of the date on which the change is effective. Rejecting a change, however, does not revoke or alter your prior consent to any earlier agreement to arbitrate any Dispute between you and the Company (or your prior consent to any subsequent changes thereto), which will remain in effect and enforceable as to any Dispute between you and the Company.
k. COURT PROCEEDINGS: Consistent with the AAA Rules and applicable law, nothing in this Section 24 will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to (i) bring an individual action in small claims court, where such court has jurisdiction over the Dispute; (ii) seek injunctive or interim relief from a court with jurisdiction to provide such relief; (iii) seek aid in support of the arbitration under applicable law; or (iv) seek to enforce or vacate (in whole or in part) the award under applicable law. If applicable law does not allow the arbitration of Disputes under this Agreement, then either you or the Company may instead commence dispute resolution proceedings in any court that has jurisdiction over the Dispute, and where venue is proper, subject to the terms of Section 24(l)(i-iii) below and all terms outlined in Sections 1-21 and 23-25.
I. IN ADDITION, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AND THE COMPANY UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVE ANY RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL.
m. ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS APPLICABLE TO ALL DISPUTE RESOLUTION: The following additional provisions are applicable to the resolution of all Disputes, to the fullest extent allowed by applicable law, regardless of whether brought in arbitration, court, or any other type of formal dispute resolution proceeding:
(i) Time Limitation: Any Dispute shall be time-barred unless the party asserting the Dispute commences formal dispute resolution proceedings within one (1) year after the basis for such Dispute became known or should have become known to the party asserting the Dispute, provided, however, that the one-year period shall be deemed suspended during any informal settlement discussions following the receipt of a Notice of Dispute by any party pursuant to Section 24(e) above.
(ii) NO CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS OR PROCEEDINGS: TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AND THE COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING DISPUTES 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.
(iii) No Consolidation: You and the Company acknowledge and agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, we are each waiving the right to participate in a consolidated proceeding.

27 Other provisions
27.1. We may modify this Agreement from time to time if we think it is necessary (e.g. for legal reasons or to reflect changes in the App, website). If we materially change the Agreement, we will make the update Agreement available online and make reasonable efforts to tell you about it (e.g. by sending you a notice).
27.2. Once we change the Agreement, it will become legally binding on you thirty (30) days after we post it online. During that period, you are welcome to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have specific questions about the changes. If you do not agree to those changes (regardless of whether you email us), then unfortunately we need to ask you to cease using Flo App, and access the website. We are sorry we have to say that, but we hope you will appreciate that for Flo to work properly we need to have everyone using it under the same rules instead of different people having different rules. That is why we encourage you to get in contact if you have queries or concerns.

A printed version of this Agreement shall be admissible in arbitral, judicial or administrative proceedings.
27.6. No waiver by the Company of any term or condition set forth in this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of the Company to assert a right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
27.7. Upon termination of this Agreement, all provisions of this Agreement that by their nature, should survive termination, shall survive termination, including, without limitation, the provisions on dispute resolution and arbitration, all ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, and limitations of liability.
