In order to give potential customers an authentic OMTech experience, we have created a platform where potential customers can see how the OMTech product (Machine) operates in workspaces where our users have operated such products (Services). This is a community program facilitating the reservations of a Demo Room Appointment between users who have purchased a machine and wish to use their designated workspace (Property) to showcase it (Host), and users who would like to schedule a time to view and evaluate a machine at the Host’s Property (Visitor). The Host may use their property, including their personal residence. The Hosts and Visitors make arrangements for a visit (Demo Room Appointment) directly with each other through email. If a Visitor is interested in purchasing a machine, the Visitor may also do so through the website. OMTech is not an owner or operator of the machine showcased. The Services provided act as a free service to community members who wish to collaborate and OMTech does not take any responsibility for the platform or the Services agreed to between the Visitor, Host, and other users.
HOSTS ARE NOT EMPLOYEES, PARTNERS, REPRESENTATIVES, AGENTS, JOINT VENTURERS, OR FRANCHISEES OF OMTECH. OMTECH DOES NOT PERFORM ANY OBLIGATIONS IN CONNECTION WITH DEMO ROOM APPOINTMENTS AND DOES NOT EMPLOY HOSTS TO PERFORM SUCH OBLIGATIONS. USERS HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT OMTECH DOES NOT SUPERVISE, DIRECT, CONTROL, OR MONITOR (1) A HOST’S DEMO ROOM APPOINTMENT OR (2) THE QUALITY OR SAFETY OF THE LOCATION OR OF THE PEOPLE ATTENDING THE DEMO ROOM APPOINTMENT.
PLEASE NOTE THAT, AS STATED ABOVE, THE SERVICES ARE INTENDED TO BE USED TO FACILITATE COMMUNICATION BETWEEN HOSTS AND VISITORS DIRECTLY WITH EACH OTHER. OMTECH CANNOT AND DOES NOT CONTROL THE CONDITION, LEGALITY, SAFETY, OR SUITABILITY OF ANY HOSTS, VISITORS, OR MACHINES.

- Dispute Resolution
a. Applicability of arbitration agreement.
You agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your access or use of the Website, to any products sold or distributed through the Website, or to any aspect of your relationship with OMTech, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify, so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis; and (2) you or OMTech may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents). This arbitration agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all claims that arose or were asserted before the Effective Date of this Agreement or any prior version of this Agreement.
IF YOU AGREE TO ARBITRATION WITH OMTech, YOU ARE AGREEING IN ADVANCE THAT YOU WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN OR SEEK TO RECOVER MONETARY OR OTHER RELIEF IN ANY LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST COMPANY ALLEGING CLASS, COLLECTIVE, AND/OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIMS ON YOUR BEHALF. INSTEAD, BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU MAY BRING YOUR CLAIMS AGAINST THE COMPANY IN AN INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION PROCEEDING. IF SUCCESSFUL ON SUCH CLAIMS, YOU COULD BE AWARDED MONEY OR OTHER RELIEF BY AN ARBITRATOR. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING WHETHER TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
b. Arbitration rules and forum.
The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration agreement. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to OMTech, 1150 N Red Gum St., Suite F, Anaheim, CA 92806.

You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
c. Authority of arbitrator.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this arbitration agreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this arbitration agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and OMTech. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and the Agreement (including the arbitration agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.
d. Waiver of jury trial.
