10.1 Notice of Claim
Notice of Claim and Dispute Resolution Period.Please contact APX( chat) first! APX wants to address your concerns without resorting to formal legal proceedings, if possible. If you have a dispute with APX, then you should contact APX and a ticket number will be assigned. APX will attempt to resolve your dispute internally as soon as possible. The parties agree to negotiate in good faith to resolve the dispute (which discussions shall remain confidential and be subject to applicable rules protecting settlement discussions from use as evidence in any legal proceeding).
In the event the dispute cannot be resolved satisfactorily, and you wish to assert a legal claim against APX, then you agree to set forth the basis of such claim in writing in a "Notice of Claim" as a form of prior notice to APX. The Notice of Claim must (1) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, (2) set forth the specific relief sought, (3) provide the original ticket number, and (4) include your APX account email.
