Any ambiguities in the interpretation of these Terms of Service shall not be construed against the Company.

 

Section 17 – Governing Law

These Terms of Service and any separate agreements whereby we provide you Services shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Los Angeles County, CA.

 

Section 18 – Dispute Resolution

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION 18 CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT. THIS SECTION 18 REQUIRES YOU TO AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN US THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION.

If you believe you have a dispute or claim against us arising out of your use of the Services or under these Terms, you agree to first discuss the matter informally with us for at least 30 days. To do that, you must give us written notice, which will include your full name and contact information, the nature and basis giving rise to your dispute or claim and your proposed resolution, sent to the address below.

If you are located in, are based in, have offices in, or do business in a jurisdiction in which this section is enforceable, you understand and agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy arising under or in connection with these Terms, including your use and access to the Services or any other content, including, but not limited to, claims as to whether any services rendered by the Company or persons employed or engaged by the Company were unnecessary or unauthorized or were improperly, negligently, or incompetently rendered, shall be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration under the American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) Commercial Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures and Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures, and not by a lawsuit or resort to court process, except as applicable law provides for judicial review of arbitration proceedings. Each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. It is your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees as set forth in the AAA Rules.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT BOTH PARTIES TO THE TERMS WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. The parties further agree that the arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this agreement to arbitrate. Any such controversy or claim shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, unless both parties otherwise agree in writing. The arbitration shall be held in Los Angeles County, CA, U.S.A.

This arbitration provision is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. You can opt out of this arbitration provision within 30 days of the date that you first agreed to these Terms.  To opt out, you must send your name, residence address and email address, and a clear statement that you want to opt out of this arbitration provisions to 3100 North Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90031.  Should you choose to withdraw from the arbitration provision, all other provisions of the Terms shall remain in full force and effect.

If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than arbitration, each party waives any right to a jury trial. You agree to the personal jurisdiction by and venue in the state courts of Los Angeles County, CA or a United States District Court, and waive any objection to such jurisdiction or venue.

 

Section 19 – Changes to Terms of Service

You can review the most current version of the Terms of Service at any time at this page. We may make changes, supplement or update these Terms from time to time.  The revised Terms will be effective on the posted date, unless otherwise indicated. You acknowledge and agree that if you use the Services after the date on which the Terms have changed the Company will treat your use as acceptance of the updated Terms.
