Enforcement of Terms of Service
These Terms of Service are governed and interpreted pursuant to the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, notwithstanding any principle of conflicts of law that would apply the law of any other jurisdiction.
All disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service shall be finally resolved by arbitration before a single arbitrator conducted in the English language in Boston, Massachusetts under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association. You and Tetraphase shall bear equally the cost of the arbitration (except that the prevailing party shall be entitled to an award of reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in connection with the arbitration in such an amount as may be determined by the arbitrator). All decisions of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on both parties and enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding this, application may be made to any court for a judicial acceptance of the award or order of enforcement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tetraphase shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief, security, or other equitable remedies from any court of competent jurisdiction.
If any part of these Terms of Service is unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. Tetraphase may, at its sole discretion and without notice, revise these terms at any time by updating this posting on www.tphase.com or providing you with any other notice of revised terms.
These Terms of Service are the entire agreement between you and Tetraphase relating to the subject matter herein and shall not be modified except (a) in writing signed by both parties, (b) by your express acceptance of other terms in the course of your use of the Service, or (c) by Tetraphase by posting new Terms of Service from time to time on www.tphase.com.
