Any feedback or complaints?
Please contact V-Teamwork with any comments or complaints. We really appreciate your feedback.
Let’s have a conversation for possibilities first. We want to address your concerns without needing a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against V-Teamwork, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting you via email, phone or videoconference. If a dispute is not resolved within 15 days of submission, you or V-Teamwork may bring a formal proceeding.
We Both Agree To Arbitrate
You and V-Teamwork agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms or the Services through final and binding arbitration, except as set forth under Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate below.
The Institute of Arbitrators and Mediators Australia (IAMA) will administer the arbitration under its IAMA Arbitration Rules. The arbitration will be held in the Brisbane, Australia, or any other location we agree to.
Arbitration Fees and Incentives
The IAMA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. V-Teamwork will pay all arbitration fees for claims less than $25,000. V-Teamwork will not seek its legal fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate
Either you or V-Teamwork may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Queensland or other Australian State where you live or work. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Services, or 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.
No Class Actions
You may only resolve disputes with us 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.
Judicial forum for disputes
In the event that the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you and V-Teamwork agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the federal or state courts of Queensland, Australia. Both you and V-Teamwork consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there.
