Export of Information
The United States Export Controls laws prohibit the export of certain technical data and software to certain countries, territories and individuals. No content from this site may be downloaded or otherwise exported in violation of United States law.
Choice of Law
The Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts without regard to any conflict of law provisions thereof.
Jurisdiction and Dispute Resolution
We want to address your concerns without needing a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against Agenus, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting our Communications Department via our contact form. We will try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting you via email. If a dispute is not resolved within 15 days of submission, you or Agenus may bring a formal proceeding.
IF YOU’RE A U.S. RESIDENT, YOU ALSO AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISIONS:
We Both Agree To Arbitrate. You and Agenus agree to resolve any claims relating to the Terms or your use of this website through final and binding arbitration, except as set forth under Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate below.
Arbitration Procedures. The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in Massachusetts or any other location we agree to.
Arbitration Fees and Incentives. The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. Agenus will pay all arbitration fees for claims less than $75,000. If you receive an arbitration award that is more favorable than any offer we make to resolve the claim, we will pay you $1,000 in addition to the award. Agenus will not seek its attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate. Either you or Agenus may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Massachusetts or any United States county where you live or work. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of this website, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above. If the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to resolve your claim and all parties waive any objection to the personal jurisdiction of and venue in such courts.
Class Action Waiver
You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed.
If any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, the other provisions of these Terms shall remain in full force and effect. Any provision of these Terms held invalid or unenforceable only in part or degree will remain in full force and effect to the extent not held invalid or unenforceable. The parties further agree to replace such invalid or unenforceable provision of these Terms with a valid and enforceable provision that will achieve, to the extent possible, the economic, business and other purposes of such invalid or unenforceable provision.
The provisions herein relating to intellectual property, disclaimers, limitation of liability, warranties, indemnification, choice of law and dispute resolution shall survive any cancellation, termination, or rescission of the Terms.
We may revise the Terms from time to time, and will post the most current version on our website. If a revision meaningfully reduces your rights, we will notify you (by, for example, sending a message to the contact information we have for you or posting on this page). By continuing to use or access this website after the revisions come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.
For Residents of New Jersey
Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if you are a resident of New Jersey, nothing in the Terms limits our liability or imposes an obligation for you to indemnify us from claims arising out of Agenus’ fraud, recklessness, gross negligence or willful misconduct.
Our failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of the Terms shall not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice shall act to modify any provision of the Terms. We may assign our rights and duties under the Terms to any party at any time without notice to you.
These Terms represent the entire agreement between you and Agenus relating to the subject matter herein and shall not be modified except by Agenus as provided herein or through a written document signed by both parties.
All notices, questions and other communications required to be given in writing under these Terms shall be directed to the following address:
3 Forbes Road
Lexington, MA 02421-7305
