13. Integration and Severability.
14. Location and Governing.
These Terms and Conditions are governed by the laws of the State of California. You and we both agree that, subject to the arbitration provisions of Section 15, the courts located in the City and County of Los Angeles, State of California will have exclusive jurisdiction of any disputes.
15. DISPUTES AND ARBITRATION. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY—IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT AND TO HAVE A JURY HEAR YOUR CLAIMS. IT CONTAINS PROCEDURES FOR MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
15.2 Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court and seeks to resolve disputes more quickly. Instead of a judge or a jury, the case will be decided by a neutral arbitrator who has the power to award the same damages and relief that a court can. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced.
15.3 The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this dispute resolution provision. Arbitration shall be initiated through JAMS in Los Angeles, California. Any dispute, controversy, or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms and Conditions 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 and Conditions, the rules set forth in these Terms and Conditions 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. To initiate arbitration, you or we must do the following things:
15.3.1 Write a demand for Arbitration. The demand must include a description of the Claim and the amount of damages sought to be recovered. You can find a copy of a Demand for Arbitration at www.jamsadr.com.
15.3.2 Send three copies of the Demand for Arbitration, plus the appropriate filing fee to: your local JAMS office or to JAMS, 1925 Century Park East, Suite 1400, Los Angeles, CA 90067.
15.3.3 Send one copy of the Demand for Arbitration to the other party.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS Rules. If travelling to Los Angeles, California is a burden, you may participate in the arbitration by phone or via document submission to the fullest extent allowable by the arbitrator. Each party will bear their own costs of arbitration unless the arbitrator directs that bearing such costs would be an undue burden and in that case, we will pay for your portion of the arbitration administrative costs (but not your attorneys’ fees). Arbitration under this agreement shall be held in the United States in the City and County of Los Angeles, state of 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.
15.4 The arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and 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 and Conditions. 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 that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us. In any arbitration, the Arbitrator will give each party a preliminary draft of the decision at least ten (10) days before the Arbitrator makes the decision final (five (5) days for a prminary draft after any revision) so that the parties may comment upon the opinion and point out errors.
15.5 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.
15.6 Waiver of Jury Trial. 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 us in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND COMPANY 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 THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE.
15.7 Opt-Out of Agreement to Arbitrate. YOU CAN DECLINE THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE BY EMAILING US AT [INSERT EMAIL ADDRESS] AND PROVIDING THE REQUESTED INFORMATION AS FOLLOWS: (1) YOUR NAME; (2) THE URL OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS; (3) YOUR ADDRESS; (4) YOUR PHONE NUMBER; AND (5) A CLEAR STATEMENT THAT YOU WISH TO OPT-OUT OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION IN THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. THE OPT-OUT NOTICE MUST BE EMAILED NO LATER THAN 30 DAYS AFTER THE DATE YOU FIRST ACCEPT THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS BY USING THE WEBSITE.
16. Changes to These Terms and Conditions
16.1 We may make changes to these Terms and Conditions from time to time (if, for example, we have made changes to how we accept payment from you, or if there is a change in the law that means we need to change these Terms and Conditions).
