Agreement to Arbitrate.
You and the Company agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms through final and binding arbitration, except that, to the extent you have in any manner made unauthorized use or abuse of the Site or services or violated or threatened to violate any Intellectual Property, we may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse or actual or threatened violation.
Arbitration shall be initiated through JAMS. Any dispute, controversy, or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms shall be referred to and finally determined by arbitration in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures in front of one arbitrator. If there is a conflict between JAMS Rules and the rules set forth in these Terms, then the rules set forth in these Terms will govern. The JAMS Rules and instructions for how to initiate an arbitration are available from JAMS at http://www.jamsadr.com or 1-800-352-5267. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS Rules. Arbitration under these Terms shall be held in the United States in Orange County, California, under California law without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. The arbitration may award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive relief). Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall determine a prevailing party and award that party its reasonable attorney’s fees and costs of arbitration.
Authority of Arbitrator.
The arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and the Company, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the Arbitration Rules, and these Terms. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of 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 as judge in a court of law under the same circumstances. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and the Company.
No Class Actions.
You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed.
Waiver of Jury Trial: TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be 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 the event any litigation should arise between you and the Company in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, you and the Company, to the fullest extent permitted by law, waive all rights to a jury trial instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING TO ACCEPT THESE TERMS TO ARBITRATE.
Opt-Out of Agreement to Arbitrate. You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and providing the requested information as follows: (a) your name; (b) the URL of these Terms; (c) your address; (d) your phone number; and (e) a clear statement that you wish to opt out of the arbitration agreement in these Terms.
