10. Controlling Law; Agreement to Arbitrate
10.1 Choice Of Law
This Agreement and the rights of the parties hereunder will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, exclusive of conflict or choice of law rules. Notwithstanding the provision in the preceding paragraph with respect to applicable substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to this Agreement will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C., Secs. 1-16).
To the extent feasible, the parties desire to resolve any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to your use of or access to the Service, this Agreement, or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity of this Agreement, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitration (a “Dispute”) through discussions and negotiations between each other. The parties agree to attempt to resolve any Disputes by negotiation with the other party (by phone, electronic correspondence, or written correspondence). If, after good faith discussions, the Dispute(s) cannot be resolved solely between the parties, such Dispute(s) will be determined by arbitration in the English language in New York County, New York before a single arbitrator. The arbitration will be administered by Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”) in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures ( “Rules”) of JAMS, which are available on the JAMS website and hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the rules of JAMS or waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason. You and Company agree that the state or federal courts sitting in New York County, New York have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award. This provision will not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
10.3 Conduct of Arbitration
The arbitration will be commenced by the claimant party filing a demand for arbitration with JAMS and serving the demand on the opposing party. Within 30 calendar days of the date the demand for arbitration is filed, the parties will select an arbitrator by following the Rules’ arbitrator selection procedures. Except as may be required by law, neither party nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration under this Agreement without the prior written consent of both parties. The arbitrator’s award will be in writing, in the English language, and accompanied by a reasoned opinion and a written statement of the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
10.4 Costs; Judgment
The arbitrator will determine how the costs and expenses of the arbitration will be allocated between the Parties, and may award attorneys’ fees. Each party shall bear the burden of its own counsel fees incurred in connection with any arbitration proceedings. Judgment upon the award returned by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties or their assets or application of enforcement, as the case may be. Any award by the arbitrator shall be the sole and exclusive remedy of the parties. The parties hereby waive all rights to judicial review of the arbitrator’s decision and any award contained therein.
10.5 Arbitration is on an Individual Basis Only; Class Action Waiver
THE PARTIES AGREE TO ARBITRATE SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND THAT THIS AGREEMENT DOES NOT PERMIT CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ARBITRATION PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING. NOTWITHSTANDING THE ARBITRATOR’S POWER TO RULE ON HIS OR HER OWN JURISDICTION AND THE VALIDITY OR ENFORCEABILITY OF THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE, THE ARBITRATOR HAS NO POWER TO RULE ON THE VALIDITY OR ENFORCEABILITY OF THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. IN THE EVENT THE PROHIBITION ON CLASS ARBITRATION IS DEEMED INVALID OR UNENFORCEABLE, THEN THE REMAINING PORTIONS OF THIS SECTION 10 WILL REMAIN IN FORCE.
The Agreement, including any Additional Agreement, is the complete and exclusive understanding and agreement between the parties regarding its subject matter, and supersedes all proposals, understandings or communications between the parties, oral or written, regarding its subject matter, unless you and Company have executed a separate agreement governing your use of the Service, in which case such separate agreement(s) will control in relation to the relevant elements of the Service. The English language version of the Agreement is legally binding in case of any inconsistencies between the English version and any translations.

hereby rejected by Company and will be deemed null. You may not assign or transfer the Agreement or any rights granted hereunder, by operation of law or otherwise, without Company’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to do so, without such consent, will be void. Company may assign or transfer the Agreement, at its sole discretion, without restriction.

You should deliver all notices to Company by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted. The failure by either party to enforce any provision of the Agreement will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that or any other provision. Any waiver, modification or amendment of any provision of the Agreement will be effective only if in writing and signed by authorized representatives of both parties. If any provision of the Agreement is held to be unenforceable or invalid that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent possible and the other provisions will remain in full force and effect.
