- Governing Law. These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of New York, without regard to any conflict of law principles which might result in the application of the substantive law of any other jurisdiction. Subject to Section 13 below, which provides that disputes are to be resolved through binding arbitration or small claims court, to the extent that any lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted hereunder, you and GreenPortfolio agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located within New York, New York, for the purpose of litigating all such disputes. We operate the Platform and Services from our offices in New York, and we make no representation that information and materials included in the Services are appropriate or available for use in other locations.
- Dispute Resolution; Class Action Waiver. To ensure that any dispute between you and GreenPortfolio is resolved in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, you and GreenPortfolio agree to resolve disputes through binding arbitration or small claims court instead of in courts of general jurisdiction (“Agreement to Arbitrate”). Any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. You acknowledge and agree that the arbitrator may award relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that individual party’s claim(s). Any relief awarded cannot affect other users of the Platform and/or Services.
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT.
A. Claims to be Resolved by Arbitration. You agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims you may have against GreenPortfolio. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. 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 Terms; claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and claims that may arise after the termination of these Terms.
B. Exceptions. Notwithstanding Section 13(A) set forth above, you agree that no statement herein shall be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either party’s right to (i) bring an individual action in small claims court; (ii) pursue enforcement actions through applicable federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available; (iii) seek injunctive relief in any competent court of law; or (iv) to file suit in a court of law to address intellectual property infringement claims
C. Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and GreenPortfolio shall be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at http://www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting us.
D. Procedure. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to GreenPortfolio should be addressed to: GreenPortfolio Inc. 365 W 125 St. #68, New York, NY 10027 (“Notice Address”). The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If you and GreenPortfolio do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, you or GreenPortfolio may commence an arbitration proceeding
E. Responsibility for Arbitration Fees. In the event that you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, the payment of any fees shall be decided by the AAA Rules.
If your claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a non-appearance based telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. Any in-person arbitration hearings will take place at a location to be agreed upon in New York, New York. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits
F. No Class Action. Unless both you and GreenPortfolio agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
YOU AND GREENPORTFOLIO AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
G. Opting-Out. If you are a new GreenPortfolio user, you can choose to reject the arbitration agreement contained in this Section 13 (“opt-out”) by mailing us a written opt-out notice (“Opt-Out Notice”). The Opt-Out Notice must be postmarked no later than thirty (30) days after the date you accept these Terms for the first time. You must mail the Opt-Out Notice to the Notice Address listed in Section 13(D), above.
The Opt-Out Notice must contain your name, address (including street address, city, state and zip code), and if applicable, information relating to your Account. You must sign the Opt-Out Notice for it to be effective. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate. If you opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate, all other parts of the Terms will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Agreement to Arbitrate has no effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may have with GreenPortfolio.
H. Amendments. If GreenPortfolio makes any future change to this Agreement to Arbitrate (other than a change to the Notice Address), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to the Notice Address provided above. You acknowledge and agree that, in the event you reject any future change, your account with GreenPortfolio shall be immediately terminated and you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this provision.
I. Severability; Enforceability. If an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this Section 13 is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Section 13 shall still apply. If the entirety of this Section 13 is found to be unenforceable, then the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 12 shall govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms, and that the remainder of the Terms will continue to apply.

GreenPortfolio reserves the right to modify and discontinue, whether temporarily or indefinitely, some or all of the Services and any information contained on the Platform, at any time, with or without any notice or further obligations to you.
