Broken stuff deserve a second life. Because they are beautiful, have emotional value, are worth money or become worth money. But mainly because they can still function very well. This allows us to reduce the consumption of our natural raw materials and the carbon footprint on production.
At Jafix, our mission is to give broken product that second life by empowering our users to repair anything. We do this by giving our users the ability to create repair manuals that anyone can use freely to fix anything.

The Service is controlled and operated from facilities in the The Netherlands. Jafix makes no representations that the Service is appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Service from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with all applicable Dutch laws and regulations, including but not limited to export and import regulations. You may not use the Service if you are a resident of a country embargoed by the The Netherlands, or are a foreign person or entity blocked or denied by the The Netherlands government. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, all materials found on the Service are solely directed to individuals, companies, or other entities located in the The Netherlands.
For any dispute with Jafix, you agree to first contact us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Jafix has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any Jafix claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by the Dutch Geschillencommissie. The arbitration will be conducted in Breda, The Netherlands, unless you and Jafix agree otherwise. Each party will be responsible for paying any De Geschillencommissie filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with De Geschillencommissie rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of that party’s data security, Intellectual Property Rights, or other proprietary rights. ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS.
This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Jafix without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.

If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect.
D. No Waiver.
No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Jafix failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
