14. Governing Law and Disputes. ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER – IMPORTANT – PLEASE REVIEW AS THIS AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS

 

  1. Good Faith efforts to resolve disputes. If either party intends to seek arbitration under this Agreement, the party seeking arbitration must first notify the other party of the dispute in writing at least thirty (30) days in advance of initiating the arbitration. The notice must describe the nature of the claim and the relief being sought. If you and we are unable to resolve our dispute within thirty (30) days, either party may then proceed to file a claim for arbitration in accordance with the following terms.

 

b. Arbitration. YOU AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US (WHETHER OR NOT SUCH DISPUTE INVOLVES A THIRD PARTY) WITH REGARD TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH US, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DISPUTES RELATED TO THESE TERMS OF USE, YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, AND/OR RIGHTS OF PRIVACY AND/OR PUBLICITY, WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION BY A SINGLE ARBITRATOR, IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, AND YOU AND WE HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY. The location of arbitration will be: (a) in USA, England and in accordance with the JAMS International Arbitration Rules if your principal place of business is outside of the United States; and (b) in San Francisco, California and in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, if your principal place of business is inside of the United States. Discovery and rights to appeal in arbitration are generally more limited than in a lawsuit, and other rights that you and we would have in court may not be available in arbitration. You may bring claims only on your own behalf. Neither you nor we will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration, or bring claims under class, representative, private attorney general or similar theories of liability or prayers for relief for any claims covered by this agreement to arbitrate. YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST US INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a class action, private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person’s account, if we are a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and not by any state law concerning arbitration. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms of Use. The prevailing party in any action or proceeding to enforce this Agreement shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.

c. Equitable Relief. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we shall be entitled to enforce our intellectual property rights and seek equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction at any time.

 

d. Severability. If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this Arbitration section will be null and void. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with us.

 

  1. Governing Law and Jurisdiction. Except as otherwise set forth in Section 14(b), these Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, excluding its conflicts of law rules, and the United States of America.

Without limiting the preceding language in this Section 14, you agree to submit to the jurisdiction and venue of the state and United States Federal courts in San Francisco, California for the purposes of these Terms of Use. YOU AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SITE OR SERVICES OR US MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.

The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. Our failure to enforce any part of these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of our right to later enforce that or any other part of these Terms of Use. The waiver by either party of any default or breach of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of any other subsequent default of breach.

c. Severability. If any provision of these Terms of Use, or any part of such provision, is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be (to the minimum extent necessary) be replaced by a valid and enforceable provision the effect of which comes as close as possible to the intended economical effect of the unenforceable or invalid provision, so that these Terms of Use will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
