INDIVIDUAL BASIS ONLY, AND NOT ON A CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL

ACTIONS OR CLAIMS. THE CLASS ACTION WAIVER SHALL BE SEVERABLE IN ANY CASE IN WHICH THE DISPUTE
IS FILED AS AN INDIVIDUAL ACTION, AND SEVERANCE IS NECESSARY TO ENSURE THAT THE INDIVIDUAL
ACTION PROCEEDS IN ARBITRATION.
If the Class Action Waiver of this Arbitration Provision is deemed to be unenforceable, you and
Smartcat agree that this Arbitration provision is otherwise silent as to any party's ability to
bring a class, collective or representative action in arbitration.
