XXI. MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND PROHIBITION ON CLASS ACTIONS
The parties hereto agree and understand that any dispute or claim related to your use of the Services, any dispute or claim related to your purchase or use of any products or services sold through the Services, any disputes regarding any alleged breach of these Terms, to the extent such dispute cannot otherwise be resolved, as well as any other action to enforce these Terms or for the breach of these Terms, shall be referred to final and binding arbitration, and not in court. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.
Any arbitration proceeding will take place in the United States, subject to the laws of United States and will otherwise be governed by the then-current commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association, and the parties hereto expressly waive their rights, if any, to have any such matters heard by a court or jury, or administrative agency whether federal or state. The parties in any arbitration to enforce this agreement or remedy its breach will equally share the costs associated with such arbitration proceedings; provided, that, each party shall pay its own attorney’s fees. Within fourteen (14) days after the commencement of arbitration, each party shall select one person to act as arbitrator and the two selected shall select a third arbitrator within ten (10) days of their appointment. If the arbitrators selected by the parties are unable or fail to agree upon the third arbitrator, the third arbitrator shall be selected by the American Arbitration Association.
All parties agree that any dispute resolution proceedings (including any arbitrations and any court proceedings) will be conducted only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, consolidated, or representative proceeding. Class actions and class arbitrations are prohibited. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
These Terms (including any amendment agreed upon by the parties in writing) represent the complete agreement between us concerning its subject matter, and supersedes all prior agreements and representations between the parties, with the exception of a separate written license agreement for certain products sold through the Website. If any provision of these Terms are held to be unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be reformed to the extent necessary to make it enforceable to the maximum extent permissible so as to affect the intent of the parties, and the remainder of these Terms shall continue in full force and effect. A waiver of any default is not a waiver of any subsequent default. The relationship between Self Upgrade Ventures and you is not one of a legal partnership relationship, but is one of independent contractors. These Terms shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the respective successors and assigns of the parties hereto.
