19. How to contact us
You may contact us at Doratoon’s email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Doratoon’s mailing address is:
SOOM VIDEO TECHNOLOGY COMPANY LIMITED
Room 06, 13A/F., South Tower, World Finance Centre, Harbour City, 17 Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong
Please read this section carefully. It affects your rights.
Most disputes can be resolved informally. If you have a concern, please contact us. In the unlikely event that we are unable to resolve your concern to your satisfaction (or if we haven’t been able to resolve a dispute that Doratoon has with you after attempting to do so informally), we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration or small-claims court, instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. It uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Any arbitration will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. Whether to agree to arbitration is an important decision, and in making it you should not rely solely on the information in this agreement. You may opt-out of this arbitration provision by following the instructions below.
Doratoon and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted and expressly includes claims brought under any statute, regulation, or legal or equitable theory. It includes, but is not limited to:
● Claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory;
● Claims that arose before this or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising).
