14. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
14.1 Governing Law. This Agreement and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the State of Washington without regard to its conflict of laws provisions.
14.2 Agreement to Arbitrate. You and Voodle agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services or Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right: (i) to bring an individual action in small claims court and (ii) to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights (the action described in the foregoing clause (ii), an “IP Protection Action”). Without limiting the preceding sentence, you will also have the right to litigate any other Dispute if you provide Voodle with written notice of your desire to do so by email or regular mail 3601 Stone Way N, Seattle WA 98103 within thirty (30) days following the date you first agree to this Agreement (such notice, an “Arbitration Opt-out Notice”). If you don’t provide Voodle with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice within the thirty (30) day period, you will be deemed to have knowingly and intentionally waived your right to litigate any Dispute except as expressly set forth in clauses (i) and (ii) above. The exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any IP Protection Action or, if you timely provide Voodle with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice, will be the state and federal courts located in the Northern District of California and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts. Unless you timely provide Voodle with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice, you acknowledge and agree that you and Voodle are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Voodle otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void.
14.3 Arbitration Rules. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/ or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.
14.4 Arbitration Process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a general Demand for Arbitration and a separate Demand for Arbitration for California residents.) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
14.5 Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and Voodle otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of the documents that you and Voodle submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
14.6 Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award of damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. Voodle will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
14.7 Fees. Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, Voodle will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
14.8 Changes. Notwithstanding any other provision in the Agreement, if Voodle changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted this Agreement (or accepted any subsequent changes to This Agreement), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the date of Voodle’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Voodle in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted this Agreement (or accepted any subsequent changes to This Agreement).
15.1 Waiver. The waiver by either party of any default or breach of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of any other or subsequent default or breach.
15.2 Notices. All notices or approvals required or permitted under this Agreement will be sent to the addresses provided by either party to the other, and will be in writing and delivered by confirmed facsimile transmission, by overnight delivery service, or by certified mail, and in each instance will be deemed given upon receipt.
15.3 Severability. In the event any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
15.4 Force Majeure. Neither party will be liable hereunder by reason of any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations hereunder (except for the payment of money) on account of events beyond the reasonable control of such party, which may include without limitation denial-of-service attacks, strikes, shortages, riots, insurrection, fires, flood, storm, explosions, acts of God, war, terrorism, governmental action, labor conditions, earthquakes and material shortages (each a “Force Majeure Event”). Upon the occurrence of a Force Majeure Event, the non-performing party will be excused from any further performance of its obligations effected by the Force Majeure Event for so long as the event continues and such party continues to use commercially reasonable efforts to resume performance.
15.5 Compliance with Laws. Each party agrees to comply with all applicable laws and regulations with respect to its activities hereunder, including, but not limited to, any export laws and regulations of the United States.
15.6 Relationship Between the Parties. Nothing in this Agreement will be construed to create a partnership, joint venture or agency relationship between the parties. Neither party will have the power to bind the other or to incur obligations on the other’s behalf without such other party’s prior written consent.
15.7 Assignment/Successors. You may not assign or transfer this Agreement, in whole or in part, without Voodle’s written consent. Voodle may freely assign this Agreement. Any assignment in violation of this provision will be null. Subject to the foregoing restrictions, this Agreement will inure to the benefit of the successors and permitted assigns of the parties.
15.8 Entire Agreement. This Agreement together with the Subscription Page constitutes the complete and exclusive agreement between the parties concerning its subject matter and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements or understandings, written or oral, concerning the subject matter of this Agreement.

Collection of personal information
As a visitor to this Site, you can engage in many activities without providing any personal information. In connection with other activities, such as creating accounts, subscribing to services or downloading software, Voodle may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, Voodle may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including postal code), e-mail address, telephone numbers, and other personal information. When subscribing to services on the Site, you will be asked to provide a credit card number. Depending upon the activity, some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
When you submit personal information to Voodle through the Site, you understand and agree that this information may be transferred and stored across national boundaries.
How your personal information is used
Voodle collects your information in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select. When you register a product, for example, the information is used to register your rights, if any, to technical support or other benefits that may be made available to registered users. As another example, if you enter a contest, information is collected to qualify the entry and to contact you regarding the contest or prize awards. Your personal information is also used to track customer preferences and keep you informed about product changes, special offers, and other services of Voodle as part of our newsletter service.
There are other instances in which Voodle may divulge your personal information, such as where required by law, regulation, or litigation. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that such disclosure should be made for reasons of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance.
Collection of non-personal information
The non-personal information that Voodle collects consists of usage statistics and other analytics collected anonymously through VOODLE services and downloadable products. For example, Voodle may gather anonymous statistics about how particular products are being used through usage statistics features. Our purpose is to understand which parts of a product are used most, and which parts aren’t working as expected. The statistics collection does not collect any personal information, or look at anything that isn’t related to that product.
Usage statistics collection happens in the background and doesn’t require you to do a thing. Without any extra effort, you are helping us to build features and define what a product will do in future versions.
Google Display Advertising
- Voodle may implement Google Analytics features based on Display Advertising including, remarketing and Google Display Network Impression Reporting.
- Visitors can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads using the Ads Settings.

- Third-party vendors, including Google, show Voodle ads on sites across the Internet.
- Voodle and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on someone’s past visits to Voodle’s website.
- Voodle and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to report how our ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to visits to Voodle’s site.
Identity & access
When you sign up for Voodle through Single Sign-On (SSO), we typically ask for identifying information such as your first and last name, email address, and unique user ID. That’s just so you can personalize your new account, and we can send updates, or other essential information. We also request a profile picture that displays in our product, but we do not normally look at or access that picture. We’ll never sell your personal info to third parties, and we won’t use your name or company in marketing statements without your permission either.
Protection of your personal information
The personal information that you provide in connection with registering yourself as a user of Voodle software products or services, testing a demonstration version of Voodle products, or registering a Voodle product is classified as Registration Information. Registration Information is only available to authorized Voodle employees or contractors and are not publicly distributed.
Please note that any information you post to a public bulletin board or chat room, such as the Voodle Support Forum, is available to all persons accessing the site.
To request deletion or retrieval of your data, send us a request by following the guidelines outlined on our data request page.
