7. BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
We hope we never have a dispute with you, but if we do, you and we agree to try for 60 days to resolve it informally. If we cannot, you and we agree to binding individual arbitration before the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), and not to sue in court in front of a judge or jury. Instead, a neutral arbitrator will decide and the arbitrator’s decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act. The arbitration shall be conducted in San Francisco, California, in accordance with the “Choice of Law and Venue” Section below. To the extent permitted by law, each party shall bear one-half of the arbitration fees and costs incurred through AAA, and each party shall bear its own attorneys’ fees.
Class action lawsuits, class-wide arbitrations, private attorney-general actions, and any other proceeding where someone acts in a representative capacity are not allowed. Nor is combining individual proceedings without the consent of all parties.
Notwithstanding the above, you and we each retain the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive relief or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights.
If you have a dispute under the first paragraph of this Section 7 (above) and we have not been able to resolve it, send a Notice of Dispute by U.S. Mail to JETALBERT, ATTN: DISPUTES / PRE-ARBITRATION, 1070 Post Street #4, San Francisco, CA 94109, USA. Tell us your name, address, how to contact you, what the problem is, and what you want. We’ll do the same if we have a dispute with you. After 60 days, you or we may start an arbitration if the dispute is unresolved.
The AAA will conduct any arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules (or if you are an individual and use the Sites or Services for personal or household use, or if the value of the dispute is $75,000 or less whether or not you are an individual or how you use the Sites or Services, its Consumer Arbitration Rules). For more information, see www.adr.org or call 1-800-788-7879. To start an arbitration, the initiating party must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration - Consumer Arbitration Rules at the website or phone number mentioned in the prior sentence. The Arbitrator will be either (1) a retired judge or (2) an attorney specifically licensed to practice law in the state of California and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators if the Consumer Arbitration Rules apply; or if the Commercial Arbitration Rules apply, from the AAA’s roster of commercial dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an Arbitrator within 7 days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the Arbitrator in accordance with the applicable AAA Rules.
