19. Arbitration, Class Waiver and Jury Waiver

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS CAREFULLY AS THEY REQUIRE YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH Company, PREVENT YOU FROM FILING A LAWSUIT IN COURT, AND LIMIT THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.

A. Applicability of Arbitration Agreement
This section is intended to be interpreted broadly and governs any and all disputes between us, including but not limited to all claims and disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or the use of our Services that cannot be resolved by both parties’ best efforts to settle or in small claims court. All claims and disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or the use of our Services that cannot be resolved by both parties’ best efforts to settle or in small claims court, will be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis, except that you and Company are not required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable relief for the alleged use unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents.

B. Arbitration Rules
The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this dispute-resolution provision. Arbitration will be initiated through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). If the AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. The rules of the arbitral forum will govern all aspects of this arbitration, except to the extent those rules conflict with these Terms. The AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules governing the arbitration are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration will be conducted by a single neutral arbitrator. Any claims or disputes where the total amount sought is less than $10,000 USD may be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief. For claims or disputes where the total amount is $10,000 USD or more, the right to a hearing will be determined by the arbitral forum’s rules. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

C. Additional Rules for Non-appearance Arbitration
If non-appearance arbitration is elected, the arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online, written submissions, or any combination of the three; the specific manner will be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration will not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless the parties mutually agree otherwise.

D. Authority of the Arbitrator
The arbitrator will decide the jurisdiction of the arbitrator and the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Company. The dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator will have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim or dispute. The arbitrator will have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and the Terms. The arbitrator will issue a written award and statement of a decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you.

E. Waiver of Jury Trial
YOU AND Company WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and Company are instead electing to have claims and disputes resolved by arbitration. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient, and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In any litigation between you and Company over whether to vacate or enforce an arbitration award, YOU AND Company WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, and elect instead to have the dispute be resolved by a judge.

F. Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions
ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS. CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If, however, this wavier of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither you nor we are entitled to arbitration; instead all claims and disputes will be resolve in a court as set forth in Section 17.

G. Confidentiality
No part of the procedures will be open to the public or the media. All evidence discovered or submitted at the hearing is confidential and may not be disclosed, except by written agreement of the parties, pursuant to court order, or unless required by law. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no party will be prevented from submitting to a court of law any information needed to enforce this arbitration agreement, to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek injunctive or equitable relief.

H. Right to Waiver
Any rights and limitations set forth in this arbitration agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver will not waive or affect any other portion of this arbitration agreement.

I. Arbitration Agreement Survival
This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Company.

22. Exclusive Venue

To the extent the parties are permitted under these Terms to initiate litigation in a court, both you and Company agree that all claims and disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or the use of our Services will be litigated exclusively in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California. If, however, that court would lack original jurisdiction over the litigation, then all claims and disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or the use of our Services will be litigated exclusively in the County Courts of Los Angeles, California. You and Company consent to the personal jurisdiction of both courts.

20. Choice of Law

Except to the extent they are preempted by U.S. federal law, the laws of California, other than its conflict-of-laws principles, govern these Terms and any disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or their subject matter, including tort claims.

21. Severability

If any portion or provision of this agreement shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason or illegal, that portion shall be severed and the remainder of this agreement shall remain valid and enforceable between the parties. In such event, the Parties shall in good faith attempt to negotiate a substitute clause for any provision declared invalid or unenforceable, which substitute clause shall most nearly approximate the intent of the Parties in agreeing to such invalid provision, without itself being invalid or unenforceable.

22. Additional Terms for Specific Services

Given the breadth of our Services, we sometimes need to craft additional terms and conditions for specific Services. Those additional terms and conditions, which will be available with the relevant Services, then become part of your agreement with us if you use those Services.

23. Final Terms

Each party hereto acknowledges that this Terms of Service Agreement and End User License Agreement constitutes and contains the entire agreement and understanding of the parties concerning the subject matters hereof, Company and supersedes and replaces any prior agreements. These Terms do not create or confer any third-party beneficiary rights. If we do not enforce a provision in these Terms, it will not be considered a waiver. We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you. You may not transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Terms without our consent. These terms were written in English and to the extent the translated version of these Terms conflict with the English version, the English version will control. This Terms of Service Agreement and End User License Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective heirs, successors, and beneficiaries.
