Disputes Resolution; Arbitration; No Class Action
Please read this section carefully. It affects your legal rights, including your right to file a lawsuit in court.
If You have any concern or dispute about the Service, You agree to first try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting the Company. If these efforts fail, You agree that all claims, disputes or controversies against Company arising under these Terms and Conditions ("Claims") shall be exclusively submitted to binding arbitration (except for matters that may be taken to small claims court), no matter what legal theory they are based on or what remedy (damages, or injunctive or declaratory relief) they seek. This includes Claims based on contract, tort (including intentional tort), fraud, agency, Your or our negligence, statutory or regulatory provisions, or any other sources of law; Claims made as counterclaims, cross-claims, third- party claims, interpleaders or otherwise; and Claims made independently or with other claims. The party filing arbitration must submit Claims to the American Arbitration Association and follow its rules and procedures for initiating and pursuing arbitration. Any arbitration hearing that You attend will be held at a place chosen by the American Arbitration Association in the same city as the U.S. District Court closest to Your then current residential address, or at some other place to which You and Company agree in writing, and the arbitrator shall apply New York law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and other federal arbitration laws. You may obtain copies of the current rules, and forms and instructions for initiating arbitration by visiting the American Arbitration Association website located at www.adr.org. Arbitration means that the Claim will be decided by an arbitrator, and not by a judge or jury. Court review of an arbitration award will be very limited. The arbitrator can award any damages or relief on Your individual claim that a court of law could, including individual injunctive relief and attorneys’ fees when available under the governing law. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
You shall not be entitled to join or consolidate Claims in arbitration by or against other users or to arbitrate any claim as a representative or member of a class or in a private attorney general capacity. You acknowledge and agree that You are waiving any ability to join or consolidate Your Claim in arbitration with the Claim of any other person and to bring any Claim on a class basis, in a representative capacity, on behalf of the general public, or on behalf of any other person.
A single, neutral arbitrator will resolve Claims. The arbitrator will be either a lawyer with at least ten (10) years’ experience or a retired or former judge, selected in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitration will follow the procedures and rules of the American Arbitration Association which are in effect on the date the arbitration is filed unless those procedures and rules are inconsistent with these Terms and Conditions, in which case these Terms and Conditions will prevail. Those procedures and rules may limit the discovery available to You or us. The arbitrator will take reasonable steps to protect Your information and other confidential information if requested to do so by You or us. Each party to the arbitration will bear the expense of that party's attorneys, experts, and witnesses, and other expenses, regardless of which party prevails, but a party may recover any or all expenses from another party if the arbitrator, applying applicable law, so determines. The arbitrator's award is final and binding on the parties. You and we further agree that an award and any judgment confirming it only applies to the arbitration in which it was awarded and cannot be used in any other proceeding except to enforce the award itself and any post-arbitration action seeking to enforce an arbitration award or action seeking equitable or injunctive relief shall be brought exclusively in state and federal court located in of New York, New York. For any Claims that are not subject to arbitration, if any: (a) the exclusive jurisdiction and venue for proceedings involving Claims shall be the courts of competent jurisdiction sitting within the State of New York, and the parties hereby waive any argument that any such court does not have personal jurisdiction or is not appropriate or convenient; (b) You and we waive any and all rights to trial by jury with respect to any such Claims.

If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is held to be unenforceable or invalid, such provision will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.
Except as provided herein, the failure to exercise a right or to require performance of an obligation under these Terms and Conditions shall not effect a party's ability to exercise such right or require such performance at any time thereafter nor shall be the waiver of a breach constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach.
