The terms below are incorporated into, and form an integral part of, the BigCommerce Terms of Service. Unless otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms shall have the meaning ascribed them in the Terms of Service.
The following terms supplement, replace or modify the referenced terms for Customers domiciled in the jurisdictions below.
European Union and United Kingdom. For Customers domiciled within the European Union or the United Kingdom:
Arbitration. The ‘Arbitration Agreement, Class Action Waiver and Mediation’ section of the Terms of Service is supplemented with the following two additional provisions:
Internal Dispute Resolution. If you are a business established within the European Union or the United Kingdom, you are also eligible to make use of our internal dispute resolution process in the event of any Dispute. The internal dispute resolution process is free of charge and BigCommerce endeavors to address all matters within a reasonable time frame, while incorporating the principles of transparency and equal treatment, and also treating submissions in a manner which is proportionate to their importance and complexity, as described in European Union Platform to Business Regulation (2019/1150) (”P2B”). If you are eligible for this service you may submit your inquiry to [email protected].
EU P2B Mediation. Consistent with the European Union Platform to Business Regulation, if you are a business established within the European Union or the United Kingdom, BigCommerce is also willing to engage voluntarily in certain types of mediation to attempt to reach resolution regarding a Dispute, conditioned on your good faith participation and subject to the terms prescribed by P2B. BigCommerce will cooperate in good faith in mediation through the London office of JAMS or the New York office of the AAA. Any attempt to reach an agreement through mediation of a Dispute shall not affect any of BigCommerce’s other rights or remedies, including the right to initiate judicial proceedings at any time before, during or after the mediation process.
Modifications. The ‘Modifications’ section of the Terms of Service is modified by inserting the following additional sentences at the end of the section:

If you are a business established within the European Union or the United Kingdom and you object to the Changes you have the right to terminate your subscription with us by providing us with a notice of termination before the Changes take effect.
