By signing up or otherwise using the MaintAid service, websites, and software applications (together, the “MaintAid service” or “Service”), you are entering into a binding contract with Virbius AB (“Virbius”, “we”, “us”). The MaintAid service includes social and interactive features.
Please read the Agreements carefully. They cover important information about MaintAid services provided to you and any charges, taxes, and fees. The Agreements include information about future changes to the Agreements, export controls, automatic renewals, limitations of liability, privacy information, a class action waiver, and resolution of disputes by arbitration instead of in court.
In order to use the MaintAid service you need to have the power to enter a binding contract with us and not be barred from doing so under any applicable laws.
2 Changes to the Agreements
Occasionally we may, in our discretion, make changes to the Agreements. When we make material changes to the Agreements, we’ll provide you with prominent notice as appropriate under the circumstances, e.g., by displaying a prominent notice within the Service or by sending you an email. In some cases, we will notify you in advance, and your continued use of the Service after the changes have been made will constitute your acceptance of the changes. Please therefore make sure you read any such notice carefully. If you do not wish to continue using the Service under the new version of the Agreements, you may terminate the Agreements by contacting us through the Customer Service contact form.
3 Using MaintAid
Here’s some information about the ways you can use MaintAid.
3.1 Our Services & Paid Subscriptions
Virbius provides a service where you can store information about your house, the equipment in your house and the maintenance actions needed for that equipment. Certain MaintAid services are provided to you free-of-charge. Other MaintAid services require payment before you can access them. The MaintAid services that may be accessed after payment are currently referred to as the “Premium Service” or the “Paid Subscriptions”. The MaintAid service that does not require payment is currently referred to as the “Free Service”. You can learn more about our services by visiting our website.

22 Choice of law, mandatory arbitration and venue
22.1 Governing Law / Jurisdiction
The Agreements (and any non-contractual disputes/claims arising out of or in connection with them) are subject to the laws of Sweden, without regard to choice or conflicts of law principles.
Further, you and Virbius agree to the jurisdiction of Swedish courts to resolve any dispute, claim, or controversy that relates to or arises in connection with the Agreements (and any non-contractual disputes/claims relating to or arising in connection with them) and is not subject to mandatory arbitration under Section 22.2.1.
Virbius does not accept any codes of conduct as mandatory in connection with the services provided under this agreement.
22.2 ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
22.2.1 Dispute resolution and arbitration
You and Virbius agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Virbius arising in connection with or relating in any way to these Agreements or to your relationship with Virbius as a user of the Service (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and whether the claims arise during or after the termination of the Agreements) will be determined by mandatory binding individual (not class) arbitration. You and Virbius further agree that the arbitrator shall have the exclusive power to rule on his or her own jurisdiction, including any objections with respect to the existence, scope or validity of the Arbitration Agreement or to the arbitrability of any claim or counterclaim. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. There may be more limited discovery than in court. The arbitrator must follow this agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney fees), except that the arbitrator may not award any relief, including declaratory or injunctive relief, benefiting anyone but the parties to the arbitration. This arbitration provision will survive termination of the Agreements.
Notwithstanding the clause above (24.2.1), you and Virbius both agree that nothing in this Arbitration Agreement will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our rights, at any time, to (1) bring an individual action in a U.S. small claims court or (2) bring an individual action seeking only temporary or preliminary individualized injunctive relief in a court of law, pending a final ruling from the arbitrator. In addition, this Arbitration Agreement doesn’t stop you or us from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf (or vice versa).
22.2.3 No Class Or Representative Proceedings: Class Action Waiver
YOU AND VIRBIUS 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 ACTION. Unless both you and Virbius agree, no arbitrator or judge may consolidate more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court.
22.2.4 Arbitration rules
Either you or we may start arbitration proceedings. Any arbitration between you and Virbius will take place under the rules of the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (“SCC”) then in force (the “SCC Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. The SCC Rules, as well as instructions on how to file an arbitration proceeding, appear at http://sccinstitute.com/dispute-resolution/rules, or you may call the SCC at +46 8 555 100 00. Virbius can also help put you in touch with the SCC.
22.2.5 Notice; Process
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail, Federal Express, UPS, or Express Mail (signature required), or in the event that we do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail (“Notice”). Virbius’ address for Notice is: Virbius AB, Björkstigen 6, SE-178 51 Ekerö, Sweden. The Notice must (1) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (2) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Virbius may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Virbius shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. All documents and information disclosed in the course of the arbitration shall be kept strictly confidential by the recipient and shall not be used by the recipient for any purpose other than for purposes of the arbitration or the enforcement of the arbitrator’s decision and award and shall not be disclosed except in confidence to persons who have a need to know for such purposes or as required by applicable law.
If this Arbitration Agreement is invalidated in whole or in part, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 24.1 shall govern any claim in court arising out of or related to the Agreements.
