4. Submission of Information on the Website
You are responsible for complying with the laws of the jurisdiction from which you are accessing this site and you agree that you will not access or use the information on this site in violation of such laws. Unless expressly stated otherwise herein, any information submitted by you through this site shall be deemed non-confidential and non-proprietary. You represent that you have the lawful right to submit such information and agree that you will not submit any information unless you are legally entitled to do so. Because of the open nature of the Internet, we recommend that you not submit the information you consider confidential.
By sending Gyaniversity Publications any information or material, you hereby grant Gyaniversity Publications an unrestricted, irrevocable license to copy, reproduce, publish, upload, post, transmit, distribute, publicly display, perform, modify, create derivative works from, and otherwise freely use, those materials or information. You also agree that Gyaniversity Publications is free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how, or techniques that you send us for any purpose. Personally identifiable information that you submit to Gyaniversity Publications for the purpose of receiving products or services will be handled in accordance with our privacy policies. Please see the Privacy section on this Website for information regarding Gyaniversity Publications' privacy policies.
Gyaniversity Publications does not accept unauthorized idea submissions outside of established business relationships. To protect the interests of our current clients and ourselves, we must treat the issue of such submissions with great care. Importantly, without a clear business relationship, Gyaniversity Publications cannot and does not treat any such submissions in confidence. Accordingly, please do not communicate unauthorized idea submissions to Gyaniversity Publications through this website. Any ideas disclosed to Gyaniversity Publications outside a pre-existing and documented confidential business relationship are not confidential and Gyaniversity Publications may therefore develop, use and freely disclose or publish similar ideas without compensating you or accounting to you. Gyaniversity Publications will make every reasonable effort to return or destroy any unauthorized idea submissions without a detailed review of them. However, if a review is necessary for Gyaniversity Publications' sole discretion, it will be with the understanding that Gyaniversity Publications assumes no obligation to protect the confidentiality of your idea or compensate you for its disclosure or use. By submitting an idea or other detailed submission to Gyaniversity Publications through this website, you agree to be bound by the terms of this stated policy.
5. Governing Law and Mandatory Arbitration
Most disagreements can be resolved informally and efficiently by contacting a Gyaniversity Publications management representative directly. If you access or utilize this Website:
a. You and Gyaniversity Publications agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to your access to and use of the Website (a “Claim”) will be determined by binding arbitration or small claims court, instead of in courts of general jurisdiction in India or if located in another country outside of India, you agree to that particular country’s equivalent of small claims court or international arbitration.
b. Small Claims Court. Either of us can seek to have a Claim resolved in small claims court if all the requirements of the small claims court are satisfied, including any limitations on jurisdiction and the amount at issue in the dispute. Either of us may seek to have a Claim resolved in small claims court in your county of residence or in the Superior Court of Karnataka.
d. Notice of Claim. If you elect to seek arbitration, you must first send to Gyaniversity Publications, by certified mail, a written Notice of Your Claim ("Notice of Claim"). The Notice of Claim to Gyaniversity Publications should be addressed to: General Counsel, Gyaniversity Publications, and should be prominently captioned “NOTICE OF CLAIM.” The Notice of Claim should include both the mailing address and email address You would like Gyaniversity Publications to use to contact you. If Gyaniversity Publications elects to seek arbitration, it will send, by certified mail, a written Notice of Claim to the address you provide to us in your Notice of Claim. A Notice of Claim, whether sent by you or by Gyaniversity Publications, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; (b) set forth the specific amount of damages or other relief sought ("Demand"); and (c) whether you reject any subsequent modification of this Section by Gyaniversity Publications.
f. Injunctive and Declaratory Relief. Except as provided in Section 4(b) above, the arbitrator shall determine all issues of liability on the merits of any claim asserted by you or Gyaniversity Publications and may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. To the extent that you or Gyaniversity Publications prevail on a claim and seek public injunctive relief (that is, injunctive relief that has the primary purpose and effect of prohibiting unlawful acts that threaten future injury to the public), the entitlement to and extent of such relief must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration. The parties agree that litigation of any issues of public injunctive relief shall stay pending the outcome of the merits of any individual claims in arbitration.
h. Class Action Waiver. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT WE 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 you have elected arbitration, unless both you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 4 (Governing Law and Mandatory Arbitration) shall be null and void.
