20.1 Governing Law
You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in California; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree that San Francisco, California is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
20.2 Mutual Arbitration
READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES. For any dispute between you and Company, you agree to attempt to first resolve the dispute informally. You agree to first contact Company at email@example.com and attempt to resolve any dispute you may have with us informally, and Company will contact you through the contact information you provide regarding any dispute the Company may have with you. In the unlikely event that you and Company have not been able to resolve a dispute after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, Inc. (“JAMS”), under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, currently located at www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration (specifically Rules 16.1 and 16.2), unless you and Company agree to the application of an alternative set of JAMS Rules. The arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, by telephone conference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless you and Company agree otherwise, or the arbitrator determines that an in-person hearing is appropriate. Any in-person appearances will be held at a location reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, such determination should be made by the arbitrator. If you are using the Service for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using the Service for non-commercial purposes: (i) JAMS may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS or Company agrees to pay your portion of the fee; and (ii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Discovery shall be governed by the applicable JAMS rules selected by the parties and all remedies available under the law shall also be available in arbitration. The arbitrator shall issue a written opinion stating the official findings and conclusions on which the arbitrators’ award and/or decision is based. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
20.3 Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE SERVICE FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND COMPANY ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND. THE VALIDITY AND EFFECT OF THIS PARAGRAPH SHALL BE DETERMINED EXCLUSIVELY BY A COURT AND NOT BY AN ARBITRATOR.
This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by the Company without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
21.2 Notification Procedures and Changes to the Agreement
Company may provide notifications, whether such notifications are required by law or are for marketing or other business-related purposes, to you via email notice, written or hard copy notice, or through posting of such notice on our website, as determined by Company in our sole discretion. Company reserves the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to our Users, provided that you may opt-out of certain means of notification as described in this Agreement. Company is not responsible for any automatic filtering you or your network provider may apply to email notifications we send to the email address you provide us.

Your continued use of the Service after any such change constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Service. If you do not agree to any of these terms or any future Terms of Service, do not use or access (or continue to access) the Service.
21.3 Entire Agreement/Severability
This Agreement, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Company in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Company concerning the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect, except that in the event of unenforceability of the universal Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver, the entire arbitration agreement shall be unenforceable.
21.4 No Waiver
No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Company’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
You can contact Company by mail at 149 New Montgomery St, 4F, San Francisco, CA 94105 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a question or concern about any product or service we sell over the Internet.
