Choice of Law and Dispute Resolution
These Terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the internal law of the State of New York without reference to its principles of conflicts of laws.
Any dispute or claim arising from or relating to these Terms will be settled by final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “Rules”) then in effect, which Rules are incorporated into these Terms by reference. Any arbitration will be before a single arbitrator in accordance with the Rules. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party has the right to bring an action for injunctive or other equitable relief, pending a final decision by the arbitrator, in the courts located in New York County, New York.
Any arbitration will be held in New York, New York, or another location that is reasonably convenient to both parties, accounting for travel and other circumstances, as contemplated by the Rules.
YOU AGREE THAT, UNLESS PROHIBITED BY LAW, ANY PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE ARISING HEREUNDER WILL BE CONDUCTED SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND THAT YOU WILL NOT SEEK TO HAVE ANY DISPUTE HEARD AS A CLASS ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION, REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR IN ANY PROCEEDING IN WHICH YOU ACT OR PROPOSE TO ACT IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY. YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT, UNLESS PROHIBITED BY LAW, NO PROCEEDING WILL BE JOINED, CONSOLIDATED, OR COMBINED WITH ANOTHER PROCEEDING WITHOUT OUR PRIOR WRITTEN CONSENT. EACH PARTY IS WAIVING ITS RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY.
Entire Agreement; Severability
These Terms supersede all other agreements between the parties concerning their subject matter. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable, that provision will be limited to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms will otherwise remain in full force and effect. Our failure to enforce any part of these Terms is not a waiver of our right to later enforce that or any other part of the Terms. We may assign any of our rights and delegate any of our obligations under these Terms.
