Waiver and Amendment
A waiver or amendment of any point in the terms of this agreement is only effective if it is in writing and only against the party who signed such writing and for the circumstances given. Any modification of this Agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties.
Relationship of the Parties
The Client and Vonini are independent contractors. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to create a partnership, joint venture, or agency relationship between the two parties.

The Client is responsible for obtaining and maintaining all telecommunications, broadband, computer hardware, software, equipment and services needed to connect to, access and use the Services.
If you reside in the US or your business is located in the US: You and we agree to arbitrate any claim, cause of action, or dispute between you and us that arises out of or relates to any access or use of the Services for business or commercial purposes (“commercial claim”). This provision does not cover any commercial claims relating to violations of your or our intellectual property rights, including, but not limited to, copyright infringement, patent infringement, trademark infringement, or efforts to interfere with our Services or engage with our Services in unauthorized ways.
We and you agree that, by entering into this arbitration provision all parties are waiving their respective rights to a trial by jury or to participate in a class or representative action. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING COMMERCIAL CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL PROCEEDING. You may bring a commercial claim only on your own behalf and cannot seek relief that would affect other parties. If there is a final judicial determination that any particular commercial claim (or a request for particular relief) cannot be arbitrated in accordance with this paragraph’s limitations, then only that commercial claim (or only that request for relief) may be brought in court. All other commercial claims (or requests for relief) remain subject to this paragraph. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision. All issues are for an arbitrator to decide, except that only a court may decide issues relating to the scope or enforceability of this arbitration provision or the interpretation of the prohibition of class and representative actions. If any party intends to seek arbitration of a dispute, that party must provide the other party with notice in writing.
All commercial claims between us, whether subject to arbitration or not, will be governed by Utah law, excluding Utah’s conflict of laws rules, except to the extent that Utah law is contrary to or preempted by federal law. If any term or provision of this Section is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of this Section or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction. If for any reason a Dispute proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, the parties hereby waive any right to a jury trial.
