Governing Law, Arbitration, and Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver Governing Law These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of Delaware without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16) (“FAA”) governs the interpretation and enforcement of the arbitration provision in Section 11.2 below (the “Arbitration Provision”) and preempts all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA is determined to not apply to any issue that arises from or relates to the Arbitration Provision, then that issue shall be resolved under and governed by the law of your state of residence. You agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in the State of Delaware for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration Provision, including without limitation any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that the State of Delaware is the proper and exclusive forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the Arbitration Provision is found to be unenforceable. Arbitration READ THIS SECTION (THIS “ARBITRATION PROVISION”) CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION IN ANY DISPUTES WITH US AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US. This Arbitration Provision applies to and governs any dispute, controversy, or claim between you and us that arises out of or relates to, directly or indirectly: (a) these Terms, including without limitation the formation, existence, breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, validity, or enforceability thereof; (b) access to or use of the Service, including without limitation the receipt of any advertising, marketing, or other communications from us; (c) any transactions through, by, or using the Service; or (d) any other aspect of your relationship or transactions with us, directly or indirectly (“Claim” or collectively, “Claims”). The Arbitration Provision shall apply, without limitation, to all Claims that arose or were asserted before or after your consent to these Terms. If you are a new User, you can reject and opt-out of this Arbitration Provision within thirty (30) days of accepting these Terms by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your first and last name and stating your intent to opt-out of this Arbitration Provision. Opting out of this Arbitration Provision does not affect the binding nature of any other part of these Terms, including without limitation the provisions regarding controlling law or in which courts any disputes must be brought. For any Claim, you agree to first contact us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Flex has not been able to resolve a Claim after sixty (60) days, each of you and we agree to resolve the Claim through binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), under the Expedited Procedures then in effect for AAA (the “Rules”), except as provided herein. In the event of any conflict between the Rules and this Arbitration Provision, this Arbitration Provision shall control. AAA may be contacted at www.adr.org, where the Rules are also available. The arbitration will be conducted in the U.S. county where you live or the State of California, unless you and we agree otherwise. If you are an individual using the Service for non-commercial purposes: (a) AAA may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from AAA; (b) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (c) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. You and we agree that the arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Provision, including without limitation any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Provision is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall also be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including without limitation any issues relating to whether any provision of these Terms is unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including without limitation waiver, delay, laches, unconscionability, or estoppel. NOTHING IN THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION WILL BE DEEMED AS: PREVENTING US FROM SEEKING INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF FROM THE COURTS AS NECESSARY TO PREVENT THE ACTUAL OR THREATENED INFRINGEMENT, MISAPPROPRIATION, OR VIOLATION OF OUR DATA SECURITY, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OR OTHER PROPRIETARY RIGHTS; OR PREVENTING YOU FROM ASSERTING CLAIMS IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT, IF YOUR CLAIMS QUALIFY AND SO LONG AS THE MATTER REMAINS IN SUCH COURT AND ADVANCES ON ONLY AN INDIVIDUAL (NON-CLASS, NON-COLLECTIVE, AND NON-REPRESENTATIVE) BASIS. If this Arbitration Provision is found to be void, unenforceable, or unlawful, in whole or in part, the void, unenforceable, or unlawful provision, in whole or in part, shall be severed. Severance of the void, unenforceable, or unlawful provision, in whole or in part, shall have no impact on the remaining provisions of the Arbitration Provision, which shall remain in force, or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Arbitration Provision. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the class action/jury trial waiver in Section 11.3 is found to be void, unenforceable, or unlawful, in whole or in part, because it would prevent you from seeking public injunctive relief, then any dispute regarding the entitlement to such relief (and only that relief) must be severed from arbitration and may be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction. All other claims for relief subject to arbitration under this Arbitration Provision shall be arbitrated under its terms, and the parties agree that litigation of any dispute regarding the entitlement to public injunctive relief shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE SERVICE FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSONS CLAIMS. YOU AND FLEX AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF ONLY TO AN INDIVIDUAL CLAIMANT AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF ON INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED MAY NOT AFFECT OTHER USERS. YOU AND FLEX AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND FLEX ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND. U.S. Government Restricted Rights If the Service is being used by the U.S. Government, the Service is commercial computer software and documentation developed exclusively at private expense, and (a) if acquired by or on behalf of a civilian agency, will be subject to the terms of this computer software license as specified in 48 C.F.R. 12.212 of the Federal Acquisition Regulations and its successors; and (b) if acquired by or on behalf of units of the Department of Defense (“DOD”) will be subject to the terms of this commercial computer software license as specified in 48 C.F.R. 227.7202-3, DOD FAR Supplement and its successors. General Provisions Assignment These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you without our prior express written consent.

Your continued use of the Service after any such change constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Service. If you do not agree to any part of these Terms or any future Terms of Service, do not use or access (or continue to access) the Service. Entire Agreement/Severability These Terms, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with us in connection with the Service, will constitute the entire agreement between you and us concerning the Service. None of our employees or representatives are authorized to make any modification or addition to these Terms. Any statements or comments made between you and any of our employees or representatives are expressly excluded from these Terms and will not apply to you or us or your use of the Service. Except as otherwise stated in the Arbitration Provision, if any provision of these Terms is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which will remain in full force and effect. No Waiver No waiver of any term of these Terms will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and our failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
