You agree that New York City, New York is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
Agreement to Arbitrate. READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
Streamlined arbitration procedures will be used if available. If selection by us of one of these organizations is unacceptable to you, you have the right, within 30 days after you receive notice of our election, to select the other organization listed to serve as arbitration administrator. If for any reason a selected organization cannot, will not or refuses to serve as an arbitration administrator, you or we may substitute another arbitrator or arbitration organization that uses a similar code of procedure and is mutually acceptable to both parties, in accordance with Section 5 of the Federal Arbitration Act.
Arbitration Procedure and Costs. For a copy of relevant codes of procedure, to file a Claim or receive other information about JAMS and AAA, contact that organization. JAMS may be contacted at 1920 Main Street, Suite 300, Irvine, CA 92614, firstname.lastname@example.org, http://www.jamsadr.com, or 1 800 352 5267. AAA may be contacted at 1633 Broadway, 10th Floor, New York, NY 10019, email@example.com, http://www.adr.org, or 1 800 778 7879. The arbitration will be conducted in New York City, New York, unless you and we agree otherwise.
Each party will initially be responsible for its own attorneys’, experts’ and witness fees and related costs and expenses. Unless prohibited by law, the arbitrator may, applying applicable law, award fees, costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses to the party who substantially prevails in the arbitration. The allocation of fees and costs relating to an appeal in arbitration will be handled in the same manner. For an explanation and schedule of the fees that may apply to an arbitration proceeding, please contact the organizations at the addresses above. The appropriate fee schedule in effect from time to time is hereby incorporated by reference into this Arbitration Provision.
The cost of arbitration may be higher or lower than the cost of bringing a Claim in court, depending upon the nature of the Claim and how the arbitration proceeds. Having more than one Claim and holding a physical arbitration hearing can increase the cost of arbitration. If either party fails to submit to arbitration following a proper demand to do so, that party will bear the costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred by the party compelling arbitration.
Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing us from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights.
Assignment. This Terms of Service, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by us without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
