We Will Use Reasonable Efforts To Notify You Of Any Such Claim, Action Or Proceeding Upon Becoming Aware Of It. You Agree That The Provisions In This Paragraph Will Survive Any Termination Of Your Account Or Of The Service.
If A Dispute Arises Between You And Us, Our Goal Is To Provide You With A Neutral And Cost Effective Means Of Resolving The Dispute Quickly. Accordingly, You Agree That We Will Resolve Any Claim Or Controversy At Law Or Equity (A “Claim”) That Arises Out Of These Terms, The Service, Or Any Products Or Services Provided By Us In Accordance With One Of The Subsections Below Or As We And You Otherwise Agree In Writing. Before Resorting To These Alternatives, We Strongly Encourage You To First Contact Us Directly To Seek A Resolution By Going To Customer Support. We Will Consider Reasonable Requests To Resolve The Dispute Through Alternative Dispute Resolution Procedures, Such As Mediation Or Consumer Arbitration, As Alternatives To Litigation. Other Than Those Matters Listed In Section 7.2, You Agree To Seek Resolution Of The Dispute Only Through Consumer Arbitration Of That Dispute In Accordance With The Terms Of This Section 7, And Not Litigate Any Dispute In Court. Consumer Arbitration Means That The Dispute Will Be Resolved By A Neutral Arbitrator Instead Of In A Court By A Judge Or Jury.
You And The Company Agree That Any Claim Filed By You Or By The Company In Small Claims Court Or By Us Related To Protection Of Our Or Any Company Licensor’s Intellectual Property Are Not Subject To The Arbitration Terms Contained In This Section 7.
If You Do Not Wish To Be Bound By The Binding Arbitration Provision And Class Action Waiver In This Section 8, You Must Notify Us In Writing Within Thirty (30) Days Of The Date That You First Accept This Agreement. Your Written Notification Must Be Mailed To The Company Via Registered Or Certified Mail, Attn: Terms Administrator, And Must Include: (1) Your Name, (2) Your Address, (3) Your Username, And (4) A Clear Statement That You Do Not Wish To Resolve Disputes With The Company Through Arbitration.
Any Dispute Resolution Proceedings, Whether In Arbitration Or Court, Will Be Conducted Only On An Individual Basis And Not In A Class Or Representative Action Or As A Named Or Unnamed Member In A Class, Consolidated, Representative Or Private Attorney General Action, Unless Both You And The Company Specifically Agree To Do So In Writing Following Initiation Of The Arbitration.
If You Or The Company Elect To Resolve Your Dispute Through Arbitration, The Party Initiating The Arbitration Proceeding Must Initiate It With The American Arbitration Association (“Aaa”). The Terms Of This Section 8 Govern In The Event They Conflict With The Rules Of The Arbitration Organization Selected By The Parties. I Don’t Have These Rules In Front Of Me Now. But You Want To Use The Consumer Arbitration Rules Of The Aaa, Not The Commercial Rules. Consumer Arb Is Much Faster And More Limited. The Aaa Rules Are On Line. If You Want Me To Dig Deeper Into That, Let Me Know.
I Just Saw The Next Page. You Are Good. You Did Differentiate Between Consumer And Commercial. We Are On The Same Page.
You And The Company Agree That The Service, And Products And Services Offered Through Or In Connection With The Service, Involve Interstate Commerce. The Federal Arbitration Act (“Faa”) Governs The Arbitrability Of All Disputes And Any Arbitration Conducted Pursuant To These Terms. However, Applicable Federal Or State Law May Also Apply To The Substance Of Any Disputes. For Claims Of Less Than $75,000, The Aaa’s Consumer Arbitration Rules Shall Apply; For Claims Over $75,000, The Aaa’s Commercial Arbitration Rules And Relevant Fee Schedules For Non-class Action Proceedings Shall Apply. The Aaa Rules Are Available At Www.Adr.Org Or By Calling 1-800-778-7879. Further, If Your Claims Do Not Exceed $75,000 And You Provided Notice To, And Negotiated In Good Faith With, The Company As Described Above, And If The Arbitrator Finds That You Are The Prevailing Party In The Arbitration, You Will Be Entitled To Recover Reasonable Attorneys’ Fees And Costs As Determined By The Arbitrator, In Addition To Any Rights To Recover The Same Under Controlling State Or Federal Law Afforded To The Company Or You. The Arbitrator Will Make Any Award In Writing But Need Not Provide A Statement Of Reasons Unless Requested By A Party. Such Award Will Be Binding And Final, Except For Any Right Of Appeal Provided By The Faa, And May Be Entered In Any Court Having Jurisdiction Over The Parties For Purposes Of Enforcement.
You Or The Company May Initiate Arbitration In Either Los Angeles County, California Or The County In Which You Reside. If You Initiate Arbitration In The County Of Your Residence, The Company May Transfer The Arbitration To Los Angeles County, California Provided That We Agree To Pay Any Additional Fees Or Costs You Incur As A Result Of The Change In Location, As Determined By The Arbitrator.
If Any Clause Within This Section 7 (Other Than The Class Action Waiver Clause Of Section 7.4) Is Found To Be Illegal Or Unenforceable, That Clause Will Be Severed From This Section 7 And The Remainder Of This Section 7 Will Be Given Full Force And Effect. If The Class Action Waiver (Section 7.4) Clause Is Found To Be Illegal Or Unenforceable, This Entire Section 7, Except For This Section 7.8, Will Be Unenforceable And The Dispute Will Be Decided By A Court And In That Instance, You And The Company Each Waive And Agree To Waive Any Right To Trial By Jury, To The Extent Allowed By Law.
This Section 7 Shall Survive Any Termination Of The Terms.
We May Assign Any Of Its Rights Or Delegate Any Of Its Obligations Under These Terms, In Whole Or In Part, To Any Person Or Entity At Any Time Without Your Consent.
