To the fullest extent permitted by law, you and Company agree to submit exclusively any claim, controversy, or dispute arising out of or relating to the Site, the Services, this Agreement, or any other policies or other terms incorporated therein (including the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, enforceability, validity, or rights under any of any of the foregoing) (each, a “Dispute”) for resolution by confidential, individual, binding arbitration, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify.
The parties agree that the arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any Disputes relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this agreement to arbitrate, including any claim that all or any part of this agreement to arbitrate is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall also be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether the terms are unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, or estoppel. The Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq.) and federal arbitration law apply to this arbitration agreement.
To the fullest extent permitted by law: (i) you expressly waive any right you may have to arbitrate a Dispute as a class action; and (ii) you also expressly waive your right to a jury trial.
The arbitration will be held in Boston, Massachusetts.
Disputes will be arbitrated on an individual basis and not as a class action. In the event that arbitration is not permitted by applicable law: (i) the parties expressly agree that any Dispute will be brought and heard solely and exclusively in the federal or state courts of competent jurisdiction located in Boston, Massachusetts. The parties waive any plea or defense that such courts are not the appropriate venue or that they are not subject to personal jurisdiction of such courts.
The arbitration will be administered by JAMS. You may obtain a copy of the rules of JAMS by contacting the organization. Each of us shall agree on one arbitrator to conduct the arbitration. In the event the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator, the arbitrator will be selected in accordance with the JAMS rules.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this section, to the extent either party in any manner has violated or threatened to violate the other party’s intellectual property rights, the non-breaching party may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court of competent jurisdiction.
Except as otherwise prohibited by law, any Dispute must be brought within one (1) year from the date the cause of action arises.
In the event that any provision of the agreement to arbitrate is held invalid or unenforceable, all other terms within the agreement to arbitrate shall remain in full force and effect.
