Please read this section carefully. Follow the instructions below if you wish to opt out of the provisions requiring you to resolve disputes through individual arbitration.
(A) Disputes. The terms of this Section shall apply to all Disputes between you and Kognifi. For the purposes of this Section, “Dispute” shall mean any dispute, claim, or action between you and Kognifi arising under or relating to any Kognifi Services or Products, Kognifi’s websites, these Terms, or any other transaction involving you and Kognifi, whether in contract, warranty, misrepresentation, fraud, tort, intentional tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, or any other legal or equitable basis, and shall be interpreted to be given the broadest meaning allowable under law. You and Kognifi agree that “dispute” as defined in these terms shall not include any claim or cause of action by you or Kognifi for (i) trade secret misappropriation, (ii) patent infringement, (iii) copyright infringement or misuse, and (iv) trademark infringement or dilution. Moreover, notwithstanding anything else in these Terms, you agree that a court, not the arbitrator, may decide if a claim falls within one of these four exceptions.
(B) Binding Arbitration. You and Kognifi further agree: (i) to arbitrate all Disputes between the parties pursuant to the provisions in these Terms, and (ii) this Section shall survive termination of these Terms. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and enforceable by any court with jurisdiction over the parties.
(C) Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may bring an individual action in the small claims court of Malaysia, if the action is within that court’s jurisdiction and is pending only in that court.
(D) Dispute Notice. In the event of a Dispute, you or Kognifi must first send to the other party a notice of the Dispute that shall include a written statement that sets forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the Dispute, and the relief requested (the “Dispute Notice”).

The Dispute Notice to you will be sent by certified mail to the most recent address we have on file or otherwise in our records for you. If Kognifi and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the Dispute within sixty (60) days after the Dispute Notice is received, you or Kognifi may commence an arbitration proceeding pursuant to this Section. Following submission and receipt of the Dispute Notice, each of us agrees to act in good faith to seek to resolve the Dispute before commencing arbitration.
(E) Waiver of class actions and class arbitrations. You and Kognifi agree that each party may bring disputes against the other party only in an individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding, including without limitation federal or state class actions, or class arbitrations. Neither you nor Kognifi will seek to have any dispute heard as a class action, private attorney general action, or in any other proceeding in which either party acts of proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or other proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings.
(F) Arbitration Procedure. If a party elects to commence arbitration, the arbitration will be administered by the Asian International Arbitration Centre (AIAC) in Kuala Lumpur and governed by the AIAC Rules (“AIAC Rules”) in conjunction with the rules set forth in these Terms, except that AIAC may not administer any multiple claimant or class arbitration, as the parties agree that the arbitration shall be limited to the resolution only of individual claims. All Disputes shall be resolved by a single neutral arbitrator, and both parties shall have a reasonable opportunity to participate in the selection of the arbitrator. The arbitrator is bound by these Terms. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. You may choose to engage in arbitration hearings by telephone or video call.
(G) Amendments to this Section. Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, you and Kognifi agree that if Kognifi makes any future amendments to the dispute resolution procedure and class action waiver provisions (other than a change to Kognifi’s address) in these Terms, Kognifi will attempt to notify you per notifications mentioned within these Terms. And you will have thirty (30) days from the date of notice to affirmatively opt-out of any such amendments. If you affirmatively opt-out of any future amendments, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Section as stated in these current Terms, without any of the proposed amendments governing. If you do not affirmatively opt-out of any future amendments, you will be deemed to have consented to any such future amendments.
(H) Severability. If any provision in this Section is found to be unenforceable, that provision shall be severed with the remainder of these Terms remaining in full force and effect. The foregoing shall not apply to the prohibition against class or representative actions; if the prohibition against class or representative actions is found to be unenforceable, this entire Section shall be null and void. The terms of this Section shall otherwise survive any termination of these Terms.
(I) Exclusive Venue for Other Controversies. Kognifi and you agree that any controversy excluded from the dispute resolution procedure and class action waiver provisions in this Section (other than an individual action filed in small claims court) shall be filed only in the Courts of Kuala Lumpur. And each party hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consents and submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts for any such controversy.
