The investigation or resolution may require the involvement of certain third parties, such as an applicable credit card company. Such an investigation may require Unitz to put a hold on an Expert’s account. Unitz will make commercially reasonable efforts not to exceed a 90 day hold on an Expert’s account during such an investigation.
Unitz disclaims any warranty that its billing and payment system is without error. If a Supplier believes there is a problem with Unitz’s billing or payment system, the Supplier should notify Unitz by email to firstname.lastname@example.org within thirty (30) days of such problem.

21. Dispute Resolution: Mediation and Arbitration
This Section 21 may be referred to as the parties’ “Dispute Resolution Agreement.” If you have a dispute with Unitz or if Unitz has a dispute with you and such dispute cannot be resolved informally, such dispute will be resolved on an individual basis in accordance with the provisions set forth below:
(a) Informal Resolution. Prior to initiating mediation or arbitration, the party with a grievance must:
(1) Notify the other party, in writing, of the facts of the dispute and all damages claimed. Such a writing must be sent to the email address on file with Unitz, or Unitz Company Limited, 246 Phan Xich Long, Ward 7, Phu Nhuan District, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam or email@example.com, whichever is applicable (“Dispute Notification”);
(2) The party receiving the Dispute Notification has thirty (30) days from receipt of the Dispute Notification to respond.
(3) The other party then has 15 days to reply to the response.
(b)Mediation.. If the dispute is not resolved informally, either party may make a demand for mediation, with the other party’s consent, shall be resolved by the Vietnam International Arbitration Center (VIAC). The language of arbitration is Vietnamese.
(i) Mutual agreement to arbitrate. If mediation does not occur or if mediation does not resolve the dispute, then both parties agree that all disputes between them, including without limitation, those disputes arising out of or related to this Agreement, the Services provided under this Agreement, the termination of this Agreement, the use of the Site, and the “Terms” as defined in the Agreement, shall be determined exclusively by final and binding arbitration before a single, neutral arbitrator as described herein.
(ii) Covered claims. Claims subject to arbitration under this Dispute Resolution Agreement include, but are not limited to, the following types of claims between and among Expert on the one hand, and Unitz, its subsidiaries, affiliates, shareholders, officers, directors, employees, benefit plans, or agents, any alleged joint employers, and any of Unitz’s Users (including Customers and Suppliers), on the other hand: breach of contract; discrimination, harassment, or retaliation; wrongful discharge; negligence or other tort claims including defamation, libel, slander, fraud, invasion of privacy, and infliction of emotional distress; claims for wages, overtime, benefits, or other compensation; and all other statutory, regulatory, contractual, or tort claims or claims of violation of country statute, ordinance, provision, or doctrine. Except as provided below, the parties voluntarily waive all rights to trial in court before a judge or jury on claims between them. Judgment upon the arbitrator's award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The only disputes and actions excluded from this Dispute Resolution Agreement are: (a) actions to enforce this Dispute Resolution Agreement, compel arbitration, or claims by either party seeking temporary injunctive relief prior to the appointment of the arbitrator; and (b) claims for which this Dispute Resolution Agreement would be invalid as a matter of law. Individual knowingly and voluntarily waives the right to file or seek relief in a court seeking recovery of money damages.
(iii) Arbitration rules and selection of arbitrators. Unless the parties agree otherwise in writing, the VIAC shall administer the resolution of covered disputes pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the supplementary procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "VIAC rules"). In the event of any inconsistency between this Dispute Resolution Agreement and the applicable rules of the VIAC, this Dispute Resolution Agreement shall govern. The parties shall have 30 days from receipt of a notice of arbitration to select a mutually agreeable arbitrator. If the parties are unable to jointly select the arbitrator, the arbitrator shall be selected as provided in the VIAC’s rules.
(iv) Commencement of arbitration and location of hearing. A party wishing to initiate arbitration must notify the other party in writing by hand delivery or certified mail. The notice must identify the party requesting the arbitration, and it must describe the facts upon which the claim is based, the date and location of any occurrences giving rise to the claim, and the remedy requested. Notice must be sent to the email address on file with Unitz, or Unitz Company Limited, 246 Phan Xich Long, Ward 7, Phu Nhuan District, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam or firstname.lastname@example.org, whichever is applicable (“Dispute Notification”);
(v) The payment of filing and arbitration fees will be governed by the relevant VIAC rules
(vii) Waiver of class, collective, and/or representative actions. Supplier understands and agrees that all claims covered by this Dispute Resolution Agreement that Supplier may have against Unitz must be brought in Expert’s individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective action or representative action proceeding. Similarly, any claims covered by this Dispute Resolution Agreement that Unitz may have against Expert may not be brought as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective action or representative action proceeding. Expert understands that there is no right or authority for any dispute covered by this Dispute Resolution Agreement to be heard or arbitrated on a collective action basis, class action basis, as a private attorney general, or on bases involving claims or disputes brought in a representative capacity on behalf of the general public, on behalf of other Unitz company employees (or any of them) or on behalf of other persons alleged to be similarly situated. Expert understands that there are no bench or jury trials and no class actions or representative actions permitted under this Dispute Resolution Agreement. The arbitrator shall not consolidate claims of different Suppliers into one proceeding, nor shall the arbitrator have the power to hear arbitration as a class action, collective action, or representative action. Any disputes regarding the enforceability or scope of this provision including, but not limited to, whether class, collective, or representative actions are authorized in arbitration by this Dispute Resolution Agreement, shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction rather than by an arbitrator.
(viii) Form of the award. The arbitrator shall render a written award setting forth his or her findings of fact and conclusions of law.
(ix) WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED EXPRESSLY HEREIN, THE PARTIES VOLUNTARILY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A TRIAL IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY ON ALL CLAIMS BETWEEN THEM COVERED BY THIS AGREEMENT.
(x) Governing law applicable to this Dispute Resolution Agreement. The parties acknowledge that Section 21 contains the parties' "Dispute Resolution Agreement"; that this Dispute Resolution Agreement is made in the course of interstate commerce and the parties are subject to the VIAC for purposes of the Dispute Resolution Agreement. This choice of law provision applies only to this Dispute Resolution Agreement, and not to the rest of this Agreement or Terms.
(xi) Attorney’s fees; survival; and right to consult. The arbitrator shall award attorney’s fees and costs to the prevailing party in any arbitration arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the Terms, and where otherwise provided by applicable law. This Dispute Resolution Agreement section shall survive termination of this Agreement. Supplier acknowledges and agrees that he/she is entering into this Dispute Resolution Agreement voluntarily and without any duress or undue influence by Unitz or anyone else. Supplier further acknowledges and agrees that he/she has carefully read this Dispute Resolution Agreement and that Supplier has asked any questions needed for Supplier to understand the terms, consequences and binding effect of this Dispute Resolution Agreement and fully understand it, including that Supplier is waiving his/her right to a jury trial. Finally, Supplier agrees that he/she has been provided an opportunity to seek the advice of an attorney of Supplier’s choice before agreeing to this Dispute Resolution Agreement.
Failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement by Unitz shall not constitute a waiver of any provision by Unitz. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be ineffective only to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity without invalidating the remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions of the Agreement. All provisions not affected by the invalidity shall remain in full force and effect.
Headings in this and Related Agreements are for purposes of reference only and shall not limit or otherwise affect the meaning of the Terms.
You agree that Unitz may assign the Terms to any other entity of its choosing, with or without notice to you. You may not assign the Terms to any other party for any reason. Unitz shall not be deemed to have waived any of its rights or remedies unless such waiver is in writing and signed by an authorized officer of Unitz. No delay or omission on the part of Unitz in exercising any rights or remedies shall operate as a waiver of such rights or remedies or any other rights or remedies on future occasions.
Certain sections of this Agreement, by their terms, survive the termination of this Agreement.
