Arbitration

We agree that all disputes arising between us relating to these Terms of Use shall be resolved exclusively through binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. Arbitration shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association under its rules and procedures, including the American Arbitration Association’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (as applicable). American Arbitration Association’s rules are available at www.adr.org. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available at www.adr.org.

The arbitration shall be held in a mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or we may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding. Claims will be decided in accordance with the laws of the State of California. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.

Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the American Arbitration Association’s rules. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, at your request, we will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration. Any request for payment of fees by us should be submitted by mail to the American Arbitration Association along with your Demand for Arbitration and we will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to the American Arbitration Association. If the value of the relief sought is more than $10,000 and you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, we will pay as much of the filing, administration, and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. In the event the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration to be frivolous, you agree to reimburse us for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by us on your behalf, which you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the American Arbitration Association’s rules.

WE AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST EACH OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS WE BOTH AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERONS’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OUR OTHER USERS.

Governing Law

Notwithstanding the arbitration above, these Terms of Use shall be construed and governed by the laws of the United States and the State of California, without reference to their rules regarding conflicts of law. You irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state or federal courts in Contra Costa County, California in all disputes arising out of or related to the use of the website or service.

Severability; Waiver

If, for whatever reason, an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction finds any term in these Terms of Use to be unenforceable, all other terms will remain unaffected and in full force and effect. No waiver of any breach of any provision of these Terms of Use shall constitute a waiver of any prior, concurrent, or subsequent breach of the same or any other provisions hereof, and no waiver shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party.

No License
