These Terms and any action related to these Terms will be governed by the laws of the United States and the laws of the State of California, without regard to their rules regarding conflicts of law.
Any controversy, dispute or claim of whatever nature arising out of, in connection with or in relation to the interpretation, performance or breach of these Terms, shall be settled, at the request of either party to these Terms, by final, confidential and binding arbitration before a single neutral arbitrator in San Francisco, California, administered by and in accordance with the then-existing Rules of Practice and Procedure of JAMS governing commercial disputes and California law. Within forty-five (45) days following the receipt of the Demand for Arbitration, the Parties shall agree on the Arbitrator, or if the Parties are unable to agree the Arbitrator shall be selected as provided in JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures. Arbitration hereunder shall be in lieu of all other remedies and procedures, provided however, that either party hereto may seek preliminary injunctive relief prior to the commencement of such arbitration proceedings.
The provisions of California Code of Civil Procedure section 1283.05 or its successor sections(s), giving the arbitrator power to order and enforce discovery, are incorporated in and made a part of this Agreement to arbitrate. The Arbitrator shall limit discovery, including depositions and the production of documents, to what is reasonably necessary to permit a full and fair determination of all claims; and shall entertain and promptly rule upon dispositive motions, including motions to dismiss, for summary judgment and for partial summary adjudication of issues, adopting procedures and standards comparable to those used in the United States District Courts. The arbitration hearing shall be held in San Francisco, California, and shall commence no later than 12 months following the service of a Demand for Arbitration. The Arbitrator shall, within 15 days after the conclusion of the Arbitration hearing, issue a written award and a written statement of decision describing the reasons for the award, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The parties shall bear equally all costs and fees of JAMS and the Arbitrator. The parties consent to personal jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts in the County of San Francisco to compel arbitration pursuant to this Agreement, and to confirm, vacate or modify the arbitration award under governing law.
By agreeing to this binding arbitration provision, the parties understand that they are waiving certain important rights and protections that otherwise may have been available to each of them if a dispute between them were determined by a judicial action including, without limitation, the right to a jury trial, and certain rights of appeal.
Class Action Waiver
Any proceedings or arbitration to resolve any dispute of whatever nature arising out of, in connection with or in relation to the interpretation, performance or breach of these Terms in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis. Neither you nor CMC will seek to have any dispute heard as a class action, private attorney general action, or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings.
Entire Agreement; Severability; Waiver
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us regarding the use of our Services. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any breach of any provision of these Terms will constitute a waiver of any prior, concurrent, or subsequent breach of the same or any other provisions hereof, and no waiver shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party. Neither party is an agent or partner of the other. These Terms, and your rights and obligations herein, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated, or otherwise transferred by you without CMC’s prior written consent, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. CMC may freely assign these Terms. The terms and conditions set forth in these Terms shall be binding upon assignees.
