Arbitration Agreement: Please review the below Arbitration Agreement (the “Arbitration Agreement”):
- You agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your access or use of the Site or Services, or to any aspect of your relationship with YLG, will be resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, rather than in court, except that (i) you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify; and (ii) YLG may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents). This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all claims that arose or were asserted before the effective date of this Agreement or any prior version of this Agreement.
- To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to YLG Inc., 750 N. San Vicente Blvd., Suite 950 West Hollywood, CA 90069. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other claims shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. The arbitration shall take place before a mutually selected single neutral arbitrator in Palo Alto, California. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or at another mutually agreed location. The parties shall equally bear the cost of the arbitration. Any dispute or claim arising out of or related hereto, the subject matter, or formation hereof (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims) is governed by and shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule. The United Nations Convention on the International Sales of Goods does not apply to the Terms or any dispute arising hereunder. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and YLG. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
- ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS; ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a given claim for relief, then the claim must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the State or Federal Courts located in Los Angeles, California. All other claims shall be arbitrated.
- You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address: 750 N. San Vicente Blvd., Suite 950 West Hollywood, CA 90069 and firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your YLG username (if any), the email address you used to set up your YLG account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of the Terms will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with YLG.
- If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with YLG. Notwithstanding any provision in the Terms to the contrary, you and YLG agree that if YLG makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, you may reject that change within thirty (30) days of such change becoming effective by writing YLG at the following address: 750 N.
