Arbitration Agreement

As part of these Terms of Use, you and Company each agree as follows (the “Arbitration Agreement”):

Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to your use of the Services (including the Site, and the arbitrability of any claim or controversy) shall be resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act.  The parties waive their rights to file suit in court to assert any allegation, claim, or cause of action against the other, or to have a jury trial on any allegation, claim, or cause of action, and any right to do so (including the right to a jury trial) is hereby waived.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, you and Company retain the right to seek remedies in small claims court for disputes or claims within that court’s jurisdiction, and Company retains the right to apply to a court of competent jurisdiction for provisional or conservatory relief, including pre-arbitral attachments or injunctions, and to adjudicate disputes relating to the infringement or misappropriation of intellectual property.

Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to your use of the Services (including the Site) or this Arbitration Agreement shall be governed by the procedural and substantive laws of the State of California, without reference to choice-of-law rules and must be commenced within two (2) years after such claim or controversy arose.  The arbitration will be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures then in effect.  The arbitration shall be presided over by a single arbitrator in Los Angeles County, California.  In the event this venue will cause undue hardship to you, then, the discretion of the arbitrator, the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted, with the parties participating through telephonic or video conference hearings, or at a location reasonably convenient to the parties in the state in which you reside at the time the arbitration is commenced, provided that it is within the continental U.S.  To the extent that any of the foregoing provisions are inconsistent with JAMS applicable standards then in effect, such JAMS rules shall apply.

Claims subject to this Arbitration Agreement may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis and you will not be able to participate in an arbitration as a representative or member of any class of claimants pertaining to that claim.

All aspects of the arbitration and award shall be confidential, except to the extent disclosure is necessary in connection with an application to a court for a preliminary or permanent injunction, a petition to confirm or vacate an award, to obtain legal or other professional advice necessary for the protection of a party’s rights, or as required by law or judicial decision.

Subject to you demonstrating that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Company will pay as much of the fees charged to you by JAMS as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost prohibitive to you.

The arbitrator will not have authority to award punitive or exemplary damages, and the parties waive any right to recover such damages. As part of the award, the prevailing party shall be awarded its costs, including arbitration fees, expert witness fees, if any, and reasonable attorney’s fees.

If any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is found to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, for any reason, that specific portion shall be severed from the rest, but such severance shall not affect the enforceability of the remainder of these Terms of Use. No waiver of any provision of this Arbitration Agreement will be effective or enforceable unless recorded in a writing signed by the party waiving the provision, and any such waiver shall not waive or affect any other provision of these Terms of Use.

THE FOREGOING PROVISIONS LIMIT CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM, THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THE JAMS RULES AND THESE DISPUTE RESOLUTION TERMS, AND THE RIGHT TO CERTAIN REMEDIES AND FORMS OF RELIEF; PROVIDED THAT NOTHING HEREIN WILL RESTRAIN A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT’S RIGHT, IF ANY, TO SEEK PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF AS PERMITTED BY LAW.  OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IN COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.

Class Action Waiver

Both you and Company waive the right to bring any controversy, claim or dispute ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING in any way to your use of the Services, or TO ANY purchases MADE through the SERVICES, as a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action, or to participate in a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action regarding any such claim brought by anyone else.

Waiver and Severability

No waiver by Company of any term or condition set forth in these Terms of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of Company to assert a right or provision under these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.  Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, if any provision of these Terms of Use is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of these Terms of Use will continue in full force and effect.

Assignment

These Terms of Use, and any rights, licenses and privileges granted herein, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned or transferred by Company without restriction and without notice to you.

Entire Agreement

These Terms of Use (including, without limitation, any Additional Terms and Rules) and the Privacy Policy and any other required participation documents, constitute the sole and entire agreement between you and Company with respect to the Services and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations and warranties, both written and oral, with respect to the Services.
