Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.

 

B. ARBITRATION RULES AND GOVERNING LAW

 

These Disputes are governed by the laws of Singapore. Any dispute arising out of or in connection with these Terms, including any question regarding its existence, validity or termination, shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration administered by the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (“SIAC”) in accordance with the Arbitration Rules of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre ("SIAC Rules") for the time being in force, which rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference in this clause, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The SIAC Rules are available at http://www.siac.org.sg/our-rules/rules/siac-rules-2016 or by calling the SIAC at +65-6713-9777.)

 

C. ARBITRATION PROCESS

 

A party wishing to commence an arbitration under the SIAC Rules (the “Claimant”) shall file with the Registrar a Notice of Arbitration as specified in the SIAC Rules. The Tribunal shall consist of three (3) arbitrators. The language of the arbitration shall be English.

 

D. ARBITRATION LOCATION AND PROCEDURE

 

The seat of the arbitration shall be Singapore. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and AUMRIK submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the SIAC Rules. Subject to the SIAC Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.

 

E. ARBITRATOR’S DECISION

 

The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the SIAC Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favour of the Claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the Claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of all or part of the legal or other costs as a Claimant to be paid by another party, to the extent provided under applicable law. AUMRIK will seek to recover all or part of the legal or other costs if AUMRIK prevails in arbitration.

 

F. FEES

 

Your responsibility to pay any SIAC filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the SIAC Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $15,000, AUMRIK will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Notice for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in the Arbitration Act (Chapter 10 of the Singapore Statutes)).

 

G. CHANGES

 

Notwithstanding the provisions of the modification-related provisions above, if AUMRIK changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by providing AUMRIK written notice of such rejection by mail or hand delivery to: Aumrik Private Ltd., Attn: Dispute Resolutions, 2 Science Park Drive, #01-08, Singapore 118222, or by email from the email address associated with your Account to, within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above. In order to be effective, the notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to reject changes to this “Dispute Resolution” section. By rejecting changes, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and AUMRIK in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).

 

14. OTHER PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS

 

A. CHOICE OF LAW
