SECTION 7 – Governing Law
This Agreement has been made in and will be construed and enforced solely in accordance with the laws of the State of California, as applied to agreements entered into and completely performed in the State of California without regard to conflicts of laws rules. In the event, and for whatever reason, should the arbitration clause below be inapplicable then you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal or state courts located in San Diego County, California for purposes of any suit, action or proceeding arising out of these Terms, and you hereby consent to such exclusive and personal jurisdiction and venue. Any claim you might have against The Company must be brought within two (2) years after the cause of action arises, or such claim or cause of action is barred. In addition, you agree to waive any right to a jury trial in connection with any action or litigation in any way arising out of or related to this Agreement. You also acknowledge and agree that any applicable state law implementation of the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (including any available remedies or laws) shall not apply to this Agreement and is hereby disclaimed. A printed version of this Agreement and of any related notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this Agreement to the same extent as other documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. Please contact the Company if you wish to receive a printed copy of this Agreement. If any Material on this Site, or your use of the Site, is contrary to the laws of the jurisdiction where you are when you access it, the Site is not intended for you, and we require that you not use the Site. Those who choose to access this Site from outside the United States do so on their initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. You are responsible for informing yourself of the laws of your jurisdiction and complying with them.
SECTION 8 – ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
All arbitration between the Company and You shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures [hereinafter, the “JAMS Arbitration Rules and Procedures”). The parties shall split 50%/50% the cost of the administrative and arbitrator fees. Notwithstanding any choice of law provision included in the Terms, this arbitration section is subject to the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1 et seq.) and the New York Convention on the Recognition of Foreign Arbitral Awards (9 U.S.C. §§ 201-208 or as codified in the jurisdiction where enforcement of the award is sought). The arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator, and will be limited solely to the dispute or controversy between you and the Company. Arbitration proceedings and hearings shall be held as provided by the JAMS Arbitration Rules and Procedures and if any in-person hearing is required, it shall be held in a venue chosen by the Company. Any participatory arbitration hearing that you attend shall take place in California. California state law will apply during the arbitration. The judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Unless inconsistent with applicable law, each party shall bear the expense of their respective attorneys’, experts’ and witness fees, regardless of which party prevails in the arbitration.
NO CLASS ACTIONS
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE DISPUTES ON A CONSOLIDATED OR CLASSWIDE BASIS; THAT IS, TO EITHER JOIN A CLAIM WITH THE CLAIM OF ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY, OR ASSERT A CLAIM IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF ANYONE ELSE IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION, OR OTHER PROCEEDING. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT BY AGREEING TO THIS CLASS ACTION WAIVER, YOU MAY ONLY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE COMPANY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
SECTION 9 – Enforcement
You have no reasonable expectation of privacy while using the Site because the Company reserves the right to view, monitor, and/or record activity on the Site (in accordance with applicable law) and to comply with government or court appointed authorities when necessary. Actual or attempted unauthorized use of the Site may also result in criminal and/or civil prosecution, including, without limitation, punishment under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 under U.S. federal law. You shall therefore not, nor shall you permit any third party to, disable, circumvent, or otherwise avoid any security device, mechanism, protocol, or procedure established by the Company for use of or with the Site. Moreover, you also acknowledge that any breach, threatened or actual, of this Agreement by you may cause irreparable injury to The Company and/or its licensors, such injury would not be quantifiable in monetary damages, and the Company and/or its licensors would not have an adequate remedy at law. You therefore agree that the Company and/or its licensors (or on their behalf) shall be entitled, in addition to other available remedies, to seek and be awarded an injunction or other appropriate equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction restraining any breach, threatened or actual, of your obligations under any provision of this Agreement. Accordingly, you hereby waive any requirement that the Company or its licensors post any bond or other security in the event any injunctive or equitable relief is sought by or awarded to the Company to enforce any provision of this Agreement.
