Governing law, Disputes and Arbitration
- These General Terms and Conditions, and any non-Contractual obligations arising thereto, between IIM and the Consumer are governed exclusively by the laws of The Netherlands.

- In case of any dispute between IIM or any of their representatives and the Consumer, the Consumer contacts IIM first. IIM’s goal is to resolve these disputes without any formal legal action and therefore request the Consumer to notify IIM of any dispute they have with IIM.
- Binding Arbitration. The Consumer and IIM agree that subject to section 11(f) (Protection of Confidentiality and Intellectual Property Rights), to submit any claim, dispute, action, cause of action, issue or request for relief arising out of or relating to these Terms and Conditions or the Consumer’s use of the Products and/or Services of IIM to binding arbitration rather than by filing any lawsuit in any forum other than set forth in this section.
- Furthermore, IIM and the Consumer agree that arbitration is final and binding and subject to only very limited review by a court. IIM also waives their right to any form of appeal, review or recourse to any court or other judicial authority, insofar as such a waiver may be validly made. This provision is intended to be interpreted broadly to encompass all disputes or claims arising out of or relating to the use of the Products and/or Services. Subject to section 11(f) (Protection of Confidentiality and Intellectual Property Rights), any dispute or claim made by the Consumer against IIM or IIM against the Consumer will be resolved by binding arbitration except that both parties may take claims to the small claims court if they qualify for hearing by such a court.
- Arbitration Procedures. The consumer must first present any claim or dispute to IIM by contacting IIM to allow him an opportunity to resolve the dispute. The Consumer may request arbitration if their claim or dispute cannot be resolved within 60 Days after presenting the claim or dispute to IIM. IIM may request arbitration against the Consumer at any time after it has notified the Consumer of a claim or dispute in accordance with section 16 (Notifications). The arbitration of any dispute or claim shall be conducted in accordance with the then current and applicable rules. The place of any arbitration will be Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and will be conducted in the English or Dutch language. Claims will be heard by a single arbitrator. The arbitrator may not award relief in excess of or contrary to what this Agreement provides, order consolidation or arbitration on a class wide or representative basis, award punitive or consequential damages or any other damages aside from the prevailing party’s actual damages or order injunctive or declaratory relief, except that the arbitrator may award on an individual basis damages required by statute and may order injunctive or declaratory relief pursuant to an applicable consumer protection statute. Any arbitration shall be confidential and neither the Consumer, nor IIM, nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement or appeal of the arbitration award. Judgement on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction. If any portion of this arbitration section is determined by a court to be inapplicable or invalid, then the remainder shall still be given full force and effect.
- No class actions. There shall be no right or authority for any claims subject to this arbitration section to be arbitrated on a class action or consolidated basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public (including, but not limited to, as a private attorney general).
- Fees and Expenses. All administrative fees and expenses of arbitration will be divided equally between the Consumer and IIM. Each party will bear the expense of its own counsel, experts, witnesses and preparation and presentation of evidence at the arbitration hearing.
- Protection of Confidentiality and Intellectual Property Rights. Notwithstanding the foregoing, IIM may seek injunctive or other equitable relief to protect its confidential information and intellectual property rights or to prevent loss of data or damage to its servers in any court of competent jurisdiction.
