Dispute Resolution

You and we agree that any dispute between us connected in any way to the Site shall be resolved exclusively by arbitration.  Arbitration under these Terms of Use shall be conducted under the prevailing Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms of Use.  We strive to offer a fundamentally-fair arbitration hearing process. For small claims (i.e., up to $10,000), we believe this can often be satisfied when hearings are conducted via electronic or telephonic means or by a submission of documents in lieu of a personal appearance by the parties. However the neutral arbitrator shall have discretionary authority to require a face-to-face meeting, if it determines that such face to face meeting is necessary for a fundamentally fair hearing.  In the case of face-to-face proceedings, the proceedings shall be conducted at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances.  If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination shall be made by the Neutral.  Notwithstanding Neste’s right to modify these Terms, Neste agrees that any such modification to the dispute and/or arbitration requirements in these Terms of Use shall not apply to claims arising prior to the date of such modification. 

YOU AGREE THAT BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AND THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST NESTE ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.  ANY ARBITRATION OR OTHER ACTION WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED.  YOU AGREE THAT NESTE’S AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE CLAIMS CONSTITUTES CONSIDERATION FOR SUCH WAIVER.

Other Provisions

Neste may revise these Terms and Conditions at any time by updating this posting.  Neste will note next to the Terms and Conditions  that the Terms and Conditions have changed.  Where reasonably practical, Neste will also note on the Terms and Conditions link that an amendment is coming, seven calendar days in advance of the effective date of such amendment.  If you continue to use the Site following such notice, you agree to the Terms and Conditions as amended.  Your sole remedy if you do not wish to agree to the amendment is to cease all use of the Site.

Neste reserves, in its sole discretion, the right to: (i) change these Terms and Conditions; (ii) monitor and remove any content on the Site; and/or (iii) discontinue Site availability at any time without notice.

If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is determined to be unlawful, invalid, void or for any reason unenforceable, the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall in no way be affected or impaired thereby.

The delay or failure of Neste to act with respect to a breach of these Terms of Use by you or others does not constitute a waiver and shall not limit Neste’s rights with respect to such breach or any subsequent breaches.
