- Arbitration. Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of, relating to, or in connection with this Agreement, the App, or the downloading, installation, or use of the App, shall be finally resolved by binding arbitration. This agreement to arbitrate applies to, but is not limited to, all disputes arising out of or in connection with the App, including, without limitation, all claims arising under federal, state, or local statutory or common law, including: claims of breach of covenants, breach of contract or breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, tort claims, and any other claims of illegality or breach of any right which a party might hold with respect to the other whether arising out of or in connection with the App, the downloading, installation or use thereof, or otherwise. The arbitration shall be governed in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures. The arbitration shall take place in Chicago, Illinois, before a single neutral JAMS arbitrator. After the appointment of the arbitrator, the parties shall have the right to take depositions and to obtain discovery by other means regarding the subject matter of the arbitration as if the matter were pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, although the arbitrator may, for good cause shown, limit the nature and extent of such discovery and establish or modify the schedule relating to any discovery requests or Apps relating thereto. The arbitrator must follow applicable law. The award of the arbitrator shall be conclusive and binding. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction (which need not be located in Chicago, Illinois). The parties shall maintain the confidential nature of the arbitration proceeding and the arbitrator’s award, including the arbitration hearing, except as may be necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, or except as may be necessary in connection with a court App for a preliminary remedy, a judicial challenge to an award or its enforcement, or unless otherwise required by law or judicial decision. All fees and expenses of the arbitrators and all other expenses of the arbitration shall be borne by the parties equally (i.e., 50% for each party). The parties are responsible for their own attorney’s fees in connection with the arbitration. THE PARTIES AGREE TO ARBITRATE SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND THAT THESE TERMS, INCLUDING THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE, DO NOT PERMIT CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ARBITRATION PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRAL TRIBUNAL MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING. The arbitral tribunal shall have the power to determine 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 by a court, then the remaining portions of the arbitration agreement will remain in force. The right to rule on any challenge to the arbitral tribunal’s jurisdiction or to the validity or enforceability of any portion of this agreement to arbitrate is reserved to the courts.
- Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding anything in Section 19(a) to the contrary, you may elect to pursue your claim in small claims court of any state, province or jurisdiction of having competent jurisdiction (which court need not be located in Chicago, Illinois), rather than arbitration if you provide us with written notice of your intention to do so; provided that the small claims court proceeding will be limited solely to your individual dispute or controversy. However, if such claim is transferred, removed or appealed to a different court, we may then choose to arbitrate, and you must submit the dispute or controversy to arbitration in accordance with Section 19(a).
- Venue. Subject to Section 19(a), Section 19(b), or Section 19(d), any legal suit, action or proceeding arising out of, or related to, this Agreement, the App, the downloading, installation or use of the App, shall be instituted exclusively in the federal courts of the United States or the courts of the Commonwealth of Virginia, in each case located in Chicago, Illinois (and the courts competent to determine appeals from those courts). YOU WAIVE ANY AND ALL OBJECTIONS TO THE EXERCISE OF JURISDICTION OVER YOU BY SUCH COURTS AND TO VENUE IN SUCH COURTS.
- Equitable Relief. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 19, above, claims for equitable or injunctive relief, may be brought before any federal, state or provincial court sitting in any state, province or jurisdiction having competent jurisdiction (which court need not be located in Chicago, Illinois).
21. Waiver. No failure to exercise, and no delay in exercising, on the part of either party, any right or any power hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right or power hereunder preclude further exercise of that or any other right hereunder. In the event of a conflict between this Agreement and any applicable purchase or other terms, the terms of this Agreement shall govern.
22. Survival. This Section 22 (Survival), and Section 2 (License Restrictions), Section 3 (Reservation of Rights), Section 4 (Collection and Use of Your Information), Section 8 (Third Party Materials), Section 9 (Compliance with Laws), Section 11 (Declaimer of Warranties), Section 12 (Limitation of Liability), Section 13 (Limitation of Time to File Claims), Section 14 (Indemnification), Section 17 (Equitable Remedies), Section 18 (Governing Law), and Section 19 (Dispute Resolution) shall survive the termination of these Terms or the agreement for the sale of product between you and us for any reason.
