RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES
Governing Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict of law provisions. You and we expressly agree that any claim or dispute must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court or arbitration located in Los Angeles County, California, except as described in the Agreement to Arbitrate below or as otherwise mutually agreed by the parties.
It is our goal that the Platform meet your expectations and provide excellent service. However, there may be instances when you feel that we have made a mistake or left you disappointed in some way. In those instances, we are committed to working with you to reach a reasonable resolution that satisfies you; however, we can only do this if we know about and understand your concern. Therefore, for any problem or dispute that you may have with us, you acknowledge and agree that you will, as an initial matter, email us through our support portal to describe to us the nature of your complaint or dissatisfaction. This should lead to resolution, but if for some reason your problem or dispute is not resolved satisfactorily within thirty (30) days after our receipt of your written description of it, you agree to the further dispute resolution provisions below. To the extent permitted by applicable law, the informal resolution process described in this paragraph is a precondition to pursuing any other process, so please do not forget to contact us first.
Mutual Agreement to Arbitrate
PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE CAREFULLY TO UNDERSTAND YOUR RIGHTS. BY ELECTING ARBITRATION, YOU AND WE AGREE TO ARBITRATE ANY CLAIMS, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, UNLESS YOU OPT-OUT. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT ALL SUCH CLAIMS WILL BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PROPOSED CLASS ACTION. WHETHER OR NOT YOU OPT-OUT, HOWEVER, YOU ARE GIVING UP A RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY. YOU AND WE UNDERSTAND THAT DISCOVERY AND APPEAL RIGHTS ARE MORE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
THE ARBITRATOR, AND NOT ANY FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL, OR OTHER COURT OR AGENCY, WILL HAVE THE EXCLUSIVE AUTHORITY TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE RELATING TO THE INTERPRETATION, APPLICABILITY, ENFORCEABILITY, OR FORMATION OF THESE TERMS AND THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY CLAIM THAT ALL OR ANY PART OF THESE TERMS OR THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE IS VOID OR VOIDABLE.
You and we agree that, except as expressly set forth below, the sole and exclusive forum and remedy for any and all disputes and claims that cannot be resolved informally and that relate in any way to or arise out of your use of the Platform and these Terms or to any products or services sold or distributed by us or through the Platform, will be final and binding arbitration, except to the extent that either party has, in any manner, infringed upon or violated, or threatened to infringe upon or violate, the rights of either party or any third party’s patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, privacy or publicity rights or is seeking to vindicate public rights, in which case both sides acknowledge that arbitration is not an adequate remedy and that injunctive or other appropriate relief may be sought by either party and/or the applicable third party(ies) on an individual basis in a court located in Los Angeles County, California. You and we acknowledge that this Agreement to Arbitrate affects interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to arbitrations under this Agreement to Arbitrate (despite any other choice of law provision). As a limited exception to this mutual Agreement to Arbitrate, you and we agree that either party may take claims to small claims court, if the claims qualify for hearing by such court.
For users in the United States, the arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at adr.org/consumer or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules.
For users outside of the United States, any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms, or the breach thereof, will be determined by arbitration administered by the International Centre for Dispute Resolution in accordance with its International Expedited Procedures (“ICDR Expedited Procedures”). The arbitration will be decided by a sole arbitrator appointed in accordance with the ICDR Expedited Procedures. The ICDR’s rules are available at https://www.icdr.org.
If you are from the European Union (“EU”) and purchased products, the EU Commission has created an internet platform for the online settlement of disputes. The platform serves as a contact point for out-of-court settlement of disputes concerning contractual obligations arising from online sales contracts. Further information is available at the following link: We are neither willing nor obliged to participate in a dispute resolution procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
Means and Fees
In the interest of efficiency and fairness, you and we agree that the arbitration proceeding will be based solely on written submissions, unless the arbitrator deems an oral hearing strictly necessary. Should the arbitrator deem an oral hearing to be necessary, such hearing will be conducted via telephone or other electronic or technical means, or if that’s not possible, in person in the jurisdiction where you reside or at another mutually agreed upon location. The language of the arbitration will be English or, for users who reside outside of the U.S., the official language of your jurisdiction. The arbitrator’s award will be final and binding, and judgment may be entered upon it by any court having jurisdiction thereof. Each party will have the right to use legal counsel in connection with arbitration at its own expense. If you initiate arbitration, we will reimburse you for filing, administration and arbitrator fees for claims totaling less than USD $10,000, unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. We are not responsible for reimbursing you for costs incurred by you for legal counsel, travel or other out-of-pocket costs or expenses. We will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.
Right to Opt-Out
YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO OPT-OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE by sending an email through our support portal. Such opt-out must be given within the earlier of thirty (30) days of approving your first purchase of products or services on the Platform, your first upload of content to the Platform, or your first agreement to provide services or if we make any changes to this Agreement to Arbitrate which alter your rights, within thirty (30) days after the effective date of such revision to this Agreement to Arbitrate. Any opt-out received after such deadline will be ineffective and this Agreement to Arbitrate will remain in full force and effect, except as expressly provided above. If you opt-out of this Agreement to Arbitrate, we also will not be bound by the terms of this Agreement to Arbitrate.
Class Action Waiver
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NO ARBITRATION OR OTHER CLAIM UNDER THESE TERMS WILL BE JOINED TO ANY OTHER ARBITRATION OR CLAIM, INCLUDING ANY ARBITRATION OR CLAIM INVOLVING ANY OTHER CURRENT OR FORMER USER OF THE PLATFORM, AND NO CLASS, COLLECTIVE, AND/OR REPRESENTATIVE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE PERMITTED. In the event that this CLASS ACTION WAIVER is deemed unenforceable with respect to any particular claim otherwise subject to arbitration, then that claim will not proceed in arbitration but rather will be resolved in a court of competent jurisdiction. If that occurs, however, this Agreement to Arbitrate and this CLASS ACTION WAIVER still will be fully enforceable as to all other claims, which must be resolved in arbitration on an individual basis.
Waiver of Trial by Judge or Jury
YOU AND WE AGREE AND UNDERSTAND THAT BY USING ARBITRATION TO RESOLVE DISPUTES YOU AND WE ARE GIVING UP ANY RIGHT THAT YOU OR WE MAY HAVE TO A JUDGE OR JURY TRIAL WITH REGARD TO ALL CLAIMS SUBJECT TO THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE. YOU AND WE FURTHER AGREE THAT ANY CLAIM HEARD IN A COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION WILL BE HEARD BY A JUDGE INSTEAD OF A JURY, EXCEPT WHERE A JURY TRIAL WAIVER IS NOT PERMISSIBLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
Limitation of Actions
You and we agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim of cause of action arising from or relating to use of the Platform, or these Terms must be filed within six (6) months after such claim or cause of action arose, or will be forever barred.
