Such delays include, but are not limited to, fire, explosion, virus, pandemic, flood or other natural catastrophe, governmental legislation, acts, orders, or regulation, strikes or labor difficulties, to the extent not occasioned by the fault or negligence of the delayed Party.

Either Party shall be entitled to terminate the Agreement in the event that the force majeure event lasts for more than thirty (30) days.

14.5: No Waiver.
The failure of either Party at any time to require performance by the other Party of any provision of this Agreement shall in no way affect that Party’s right to enforce such provisions, nor shall the waiver by either Party of any breach of any provision of this Agreement be taken or held to be a waiver of any further breach of the same provision.
If any particular term of this Agreement is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.
We may be required by a government to notify You of certain events. You hereby acknowledge and consent that such notices will be effective upon their posting on Our website or delivery to Your e-mail.

14.11: Security, No Conflicts
Each Party agrees to inform the other of any information made available to the other Party that is classified or restricted data, agrees to comply with the security requirements imposed by any state or local government, or by the United States Government, and shall return or destroy all such material upon request and provide Pagos a certificate confirming disposition of said materials if applicable.

You agree that, during the Term of this Agreement and for a period of one year thereafter, You will not, except with the Pagos’ prior written approval, solicit the employment of any employee, consultant or subcontractor of Pagos that directly participated in the activities set forth in this Agreement. The foregoing shall specifically not apply to general solicitations of employment issued by either Party to which an employee of the other may voluntarily respond.
16.0: Class Action Waiver and Arbitration
We want to address Your legal concerns without a formal legal case if possible. Before filing a claim against Pagos of any kind, You agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by making reasonable efforts to contact with a written Notice of Dispute to Support@Pagos.com with Your full legal name, contact information, a detailed description of Your dispute or claim, “Notice Of Dispute” in the subject line, and what result You seek. Pagos will try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting You via email or directly. If a dispute is not resolved within 60 days after submission, You or Pagos may bring a formal proceeding. If You reside in the EU, the European Commission provides for an online dispute resolution platform, which You can access here: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr.
If You reside in a country with laws that give consumers the right to bring disputes in their local courts (e.g. a member state of the European Union), this paragraph doesn’t affect those requirements. But, if You are a US resident or citizen, You agree to the following binding and mandatory arbitration provisions:
- Arbitration. We agree to resolve any claims or causes of action relating to these Terms or the Services or Services Package by final and binding individual arbitration by a single arbitrator, except as set forth under the “Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate” below. The scope of Arbitration includes disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation or application of this “Mandatory Arbitration Provisions” section, including its scope, enforceability, revocability, or validity. The arbitrator may award relief only individually and only to the extent necessary to redress Your individual claim(s); the arbitrator may not award relief on behalf of others or the general public.
- Arbitration Procedures. We agree to submit any arbitration demand to the American Arbitration Association (AAA) to administer the arbitration under its prevailing Consumer Arbitration Rules. The AAA’s rules and filing instructions are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration will be held in Los Angeles (CA) or any other location the Parties can agree to or as may be decided by the duly appointed Arbitrator.
- Arbitration Fees and Incentives. The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. The Parties shall bear their own fees and costs related to any Arbitration including without limit filing fees, costs, expenses, experts, attorneys’ fees and costs, and any recovery of attorneys’ fees is expressly waived to the extent permitted by law.
- Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate. Either of us may assert claims or causes of action, if they qualify, in a small claims court in Los Angeles, CA. We are also allowed to bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Services, or for any type of monetary or non-monetary relief for any intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above. If the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to You or Your claim, You agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in Los Angeles County, California to resolve Your claim.
- No Class or Representative Actions. You may only resolve disputes with Pagos on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren’t allowed and are expressly waived and prohibited.
- Severability. If any part of this “Mandatory Arbitration Provisions” section is found to be illegal or unenforceable, the remainder will remain in effect. However, if a finding of partial illegality or unenforceability would allow class or representative arbitration, this entire “Mandatory Arbitration Provisions” section will be unenforceable. If You’re found to have a non-waivable right to bring a particular claim or to request a particular form of relief that the arbitrator lacks authority to redress or award according to this “Mandatory Arbitration Provisions” section, including public injunctive relief, then only that respective claim or request for relief may be brought in court. You and Pagos agree that litigation of any such claim or request for relief shall be stayed, pending the resolution of any individual claim(s) or request(s) for relief in arbitration.
You allow Pagos to use Your name and logo, exactly in the form You make publicly available, on Our website and Our marketing materials during the Term of this Agreement.
