17. DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Informal Negotiations

To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy, or claim related to these Legal Terms (each a "Dispute" and collectively, the "Disputes") brought by either you or us (individually, a "Party" and collectively, the "Parties"), the Parties agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating arbitration. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one Party to the other Party.

Binding Arbitration

If the Parties are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) will be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WITHOUT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes ("AAA Consumer Rules"), both of which are available at the American Arbitration Association (AAA) website. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Consumer Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. If such costs are determined by the arbitrator to be excessive, we will pay all arbitration fees and expenses. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by either Party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except where otherwise required by the applicable AAA rules or applicable law, the arbitration will take place in New Hanover County, North Carolina. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.

If for any reason, a Dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration, the Dispute shall be commenced or prosecuted in the state and federal courts located in New Hanover County, North Carolina, and the Parties hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction, and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in such state and federal courts. Application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act (UCITA) are excluded from these Legal Terms.

In no event shall any Dispute brought by either Party related in any way to the Services be commenced more than one (1) years after the cause of action arose. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.

Restrictions

The Parties agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between the Parties individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be joined with any other proceeding; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.

Exceptions to Informal Negotiations and Arbitration

The Parties agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations binding arbitration: (a) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of the intellectual property rights of a Party; (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy, or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for injunctive relief. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.

26. PLACING ORDERS

In order to place an order for a Part, You must upload an acceptable model for the Part that You would like to be produced pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. During the ordering process You may choose, from the list of available options, the material, color, surface and size of the measurement (mm or inches) for your Part. Certain restrictions with respect to the thickness, material, color and surfaces may apply. For an additional fee, You may request material certifications and inspection reports for Your Parts during the ordering process. Quick Cut Manufacturing WILL NOT ALTER, MODIFY OR CHANGE THE SPECIFICATIONS OF ANY PART WITHOUT OBTAINING WRITTEN APPROVAL FROM YOU. You will be able to see and review the order and the estimated costs (production, delivery, and other taxes when applicable) provided by Quick Cut Manufacturing to You before finalizing the order (the “Quote”). No contract to manufacture any Part exists until Quick Cut Manufacturing acknowledges Your acceptance of its Quote by a confirmatory email or other appropriate means of communication, as determined by Quick Cut Manufacturing in its sole discretion. SINCE EACH ORDER IS CUSTOM MANUFACTURED, YOU MAY NOT CANCEL AN ORDER ONCE IT HAS BEEN PLACED. Quick Cut Manufacturing, at its sole discretion, may permit a buyer to cancel an order and may charge a fee not to exceed 3% of the total order value if a buyer requests such a cancellation from Quick Cut Manufacturing, provided that no work has been done for such an order as of the date of cancellation.

YOU MAY NOT AMEND OR MODIFY THE SPECIFICATIONS after YOU HAVE PLACED YOUR ORDER

28. ORDER CANCELLATIONS

Quick Cut Manufacturing may, at any time during the quotation, ordering and the manufacturing process, revoke and/or cancel any Quote/order, if there are technical or other reasons (such as a concern about intellectual property ownership of the design or the legality of the Part) to do so. In such case, Quick Cut Manufacturing will reimburse You all monies paid for such Part, if any.

29. ORDER LIMITATIONS

Quick Cut Manufacturing will manufacture Your Part(s) in accordance with the Manufacturing Standards set forth by Quick Cut Manufacturing. (the “Manufacturing Standards”), which are incorporated herein by reference, unless Quick Cut Manufacturing has agreed to different standards in the Quote. Due to technical limitations of current technology, it may be impossible or commercially impracticable to manufacture certain Parts in accordance with Your Specifications. In such cases, Quick Cut Manufacturing will use its commercially reasonable efforts to contact You. Upon written approval from You, Quick Cut Manufacturing and its Partners reserve the right to either build the Part with a different thickness and/or switch to another production technique, and apply any modification to the order (such as modification of price, of terms/term of delivery, etc.) resulting from such decision. You agree to pay Quick Cut Manufacturing additional compensation, if any, resulting from amended Specifications.

You will not have any obligation to pay any Partner directly.

31. HARMONIZED TARIFF SCHEDULE

In order to complete the fulfillment of your order Quick Cut Manufacturing needs to collect Harmonized Tariff Schedule codes and product descriptions (HTS). In the event that you cannot provide them Quick Cut Manufacturing will assume parts are for prototype usage and make an educated decision as to the applicable HTS codes and product descriptions on your invoice and shipping documents.

32. ASSUMED USE

Quick Cut Manufacturing may also draw down on any Quick Cut Manufacturing Credits held in your Account in the event you fail to pay any past due invoices within forty-five (45) days of their due date.
