By using our Site, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you are accessing and using the Site on behalf of a company (such as your employer) or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to these Terms. In that case, “you” and “your” will refer to that company or other legal entity. When you agree to these terms you are also agreeing (with limited exception) to resolve any dispute between you and Seva through binding, individual arbitration rather than in court. Please review carefully Section 13 below for details regarding arbitration (including the procedure to opt out of arbitration).
We may update the Terms at any time, in our sole discretion. If we do so, we will let you know either by posting the updated Terms on the Site or through other communications. It’s important that you review the Terms whenever we update them or you use the Site. If you continue to use the Site after we have posted updated Terms, you are agreeing to be bound by the updated Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by the updated Terms, then, except as otherwise provided in Section 13(b), you may not use the Site anymore. Because our Site is evolving over time we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Site, at any time and without notice, at our sole discretion.

These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, federal arbitration law, and the laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in Section 13 the exclusive jurisdiction for all Disputes (defined below) that you and Seva are not required to arbitrate will be the state and federal courts located in the courts of the state of New York, and you and Seva each waive any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
(a) Mandatory Arbitration of Disputes. We each agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Site (collectively, “Disputes”) will be resolved solely by binding, individual arbitration. You and Seva agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of these Terms, and that you and Seva are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.
