  1. Arbitration of Disputes. Except for small claims disputes in which you seek to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or the SeekOut Services resolved in court. Instead, for any dispute or claim that you have against SeekOut or relating in any way to the SeekOut Services, you agree to first contact SeekOut and attempt to resolve the claim informally by sending a written notice of your claim (“Notice”) to by email at or by certified mail addressed to SeekOut Legal Department, 1110 112th Ave NE STE 400, Bellevue, WA 98004.

If we cannot reach an agreement to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after such Notice is received, then either party may submit the Dispute to binding arbitration administered by JAMS or, under the limited circumstances set forth above, in court. All Disputes submitted to JAMS will be resolved through confidential, binding arbitration before one arbitrator, with arbitration proceedings held in King County, Washington. The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision, including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or the agreement is void, voidable or otherwise invalid. Any award of the arbitrator will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgement in any court of competent jurisdiction. You agree that Disputes will be held in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“JAMS Rules”). The most recent version of the JAMS Rules are available on the JAMS website and are hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the JAMS Rules or waive your opportunity to read the JAMS Rules and waive any claim that the JAMS Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason. 

  2. Severability. If any portion of this Section 14 is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, (a) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from these Terms; and (b) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Section 14 or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Section 14. Further, if any part of this Section 14 is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking public injunctive relief, that provision will have no effect to the extent such relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this Section 14 will be enforceable.  


  1. Export. SeekOut’s services, content, other technology, and derivatives thereof may be subject to export laws and regulations of the United States and other jurisdictions.

  3. No Waiver. Any waiver of the provisions of the Agreement or of a Party’s rights or remedies under the Agreement must be in writing to be effective. Any such waiver will constitute a waiver only with respect to the specific matter described in such writing and will in no way impair the rights of the Party granting such waiver in any other respect or at any other time. The waiver by either of the Parties hereto of a breach or of a default under any of the provisions of the Agreement will not be construed as a waiver of any other breach or default of a similar nature, or as a waiver of any of such provisions, rights or privileges hereunder. The rights and remedies herein provided are cumulative and none is exclusive of any other, or of any rights or remedies that any Party may otherwise have at law or in equity. Failure, neglect, or delay by a Party to enforce the provisions of the Agreement or its rights or remedies at any time, will not be construed and will not be deemed to be a waiver of such Party’s rights under the Agreement and will not in any way affect the validity of the whole or any part of the Agreement or prejudice such Party’s right to take subsequent action. 

  4. Anti-Corruption. Neither Party has received or been offered any illegal or improper bribe, kickback, payment, gift, or thing of value from an employee or agent of the other Party in connection with this Agreement. Reasonable gifts, entertainment, or business agreements provided in the ordinary course of business do not violate the above restriction.

  9. Order of Precedence. All pre-printed terms of any purchase order or other business processing document you provide will have no effect.
