14. DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND ARBITRATION
14.1. General. This Section applies to any Dispute except for Disputes relating to the enforcement or
validity of our intellectual property rights. The term “Dispute” means any dispute, action or other
controversy between you and us concerning these Terms, the Services or any product, service or
information we make available to you, whether in contract, warranty, tort, statute, regulation,
ordinance or any other legal or equitable basis. “Dispute” will be given the broadest possible meaning
allowable under law. In the event of a Dispute, you or we must give the other a Notice of Dispute, which
is 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. You must send any Notice of Dispute by
Mail to P.O BOX 13412-00800 addressed to GAME TRIBE AFRICA LTD. We will send any Notice of Dispute to
you by Mail to your address if we have it, or otherwise to your email address. You and we will attempt
to resolve any Dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the Notice of
Dispute is sent. After sixty (60) days, either you or we may commence arbitration.
14.2. Binding arbitration. If you and we do not resolve any Dispute by informal negotiation or in small
claims court, any other effort to resolve the Dispute will be conducted exclusively by binding
arbitration as described in this Section. Instead, all Disputes will be resolved before a neutral
arbitrator, whose decision will be final. Any court with jurisdiction over the parties may enforce the
14.3. Class action waiver. To the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, any proceedings to
resolve or litigate any Dispute in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis. Neither
you nor we will seek to have any Dispute heard as a class action or in any other proceeding in which
either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding will be
combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or
proceedings. If this waiver is found to be illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a
Dispute, then it won’t apply to those parts. Instead, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court
of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in arbitration.
14.4. Arbitration procedure. If you are located within Kenya, then any Arbitration will be conducted in
accordance with the Arbitration Act and its respective Arbitration Rules. If you are located in a
country other than Kenya, then arbitration will be conducted by the International Court of Arbitration
of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) pursuant to UNCITRAL rules, and the arbitration shall be
conducted in English and the English version of these Terms (and not any translation) shall control, and
both parties hereby agree to accord this arbitration agreement the broadest scope admissible under
applicable Laws, and that it shall be interpreted in a non-restrictive manner. The arbitrator may award
the same damages to you individually as a court could. The arbitrator may award declaratory or
injunctive relief only to you individually, and only to the extent required to satisfy your individual
claim. These Terms govern to the extent they conflict with the arbitrators’ commercial rules. The
arbitrator may award compensatory damages, but shall NOT be authorized to award non-economic damages,
such as for emotional distress, or pain and suffering or punitive or indirect, incidental or
consequential damages. Each party shall bear its own attorneys’ fees, cost and disbursements arising out
of the arbitration, and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the arbitrator; however, the
arbitrator may award to the prevailing party reimbursement of its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs
(including, for example, expert witness fees and travel expenses), and/or the fees and costs of the
arbitrator. Within fifteen (15) calendar days after conclusion of the arbitration, the arbitrator shall
issue a written award and a written statement of decision describing the material factual findings and
conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. Judgment on
the award may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties waive their right to
commence any action or judicial proceeding in connection with a dispute hereunder, except for purposes
of: (i) recognition and/or enforcement of the arbitration award or any other decision by the arbitral
tribunal, (ii) obliging the other party to participate in the arbitration proceedings, (iii) requesting
any type of conservative or interim measure in connection with the dispute prior to the constitution of
the arbitral tribunal, (iv) requesting the appearance of witnesses and/or experts, and/or (v) requesting
that any information and/or documentation discovery be complied with. By agreeing to this binding
arbitration provision, you understand that you are waiving certain rights and protections which may
otherwise be available if a claim or Dispute were determined by litigation in court, including, without
limitation, the right to seek or obtain certain types of damages precluded by this arbitration
provision, certain rights of appeal, the right bring a claim as a class member in any purported class or
representative proceeding, and the right to invoke formal rules of procedure and evidence.
14.5. Claims or Disputes. Must be filed within one year. To the extent permitted by applicable law, any
claim or Dispute under these Terms must be filed within one year from the date of the cause of action.
If a claim or dispute isn’t filed within one year, it is permanently barred.
14.6. Equitable Relief. You agree that we would be irreparably damaged if these Terms were not
specifically enforced. Therefore, in addition to any other remedy we may have at law, and
notwithstanding our agreement to arbitrate Disputes, we are entitled without bond, other security, or
proof of damages, to seek appropriate equitable remedies with respect to your violation of these Terms
in any court of competent jurisdiction.
14.7 Language of the Terms: If we provide a translated version of these Terms, the User Terms of
Service, the Developer Terms and Conditions of Service, the Affiliate Program Terms of Service, the
translated version means something different than the English version, then the English meaning will be
the one that applies.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us pertaining to the subject matter hereof
and supersede all prior or other arrangements, understandings, negotiations and discussions, whether
oral or written. These Terms cannot be modified by you, and may only be modified by us as provided
above. Our failure to require or enforce strict performance by you of any provision of these Terms or to
exercise any right under them shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of our right to
assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance. The provisions of these
Terms are intended to be severable. If for any reason any provision of these Terms shall be held invalid
or unenforceable in whole or in part by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall, as to
such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such determination of invalidity or unenforceability
without affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other manner or jurisdiction and without
affecting the remaining provisions of the Terms, which shall continue to be in full force and effect.
Section titles in these Terms are for reference only and have no legal effect. No right or remedy of
ours shall be exclusive of any other, whether at law or in equity, including without limitation damages,
injunctive relief, attorneys’ fees and expenses. We may assign these Terms, in whole or in part, at any
time without notice to you. You may not assign these Terms or transfer any rights to use the Services or
Software. You consent to our providing you notifications about the Services or information the law
requires us to provide via email to the address that you specified when you created your Account.
Notices emailed to you will be deemed given and received when the email is sent. If you do not consent
to receive notices electronically, you must close your Account. These Terms are solely for your and our
benefit, and not for the benefit of any other person, except for our successors and assigns.
A printed version of these Terms and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in
judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms to the same extent and
subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and
maintained in printed form.
