You and Company agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in Clark County, Las Vegas, Nevada or a United States District Court located in Las Vegas, Nevada for any actions for which the parties retain 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, as set forth in the Dispute Resolution provision below.

  1. DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Agreement to Arbitrate

The exclusive means of resolving any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms (including any alleged breach thereof) or the Services shall be binding arbitration administered by the JAMS under its applicable rules. You may not under any circumstances commence or maintain against Company any class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding.

By using the Services in any manner, you agree to the above arbitration agreement. In doing so, YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend any claims between you and Company. YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER CLASS PROCEEDING. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR, NOT A JURY. You are entitled to a fair hearing before the neutral arbitrator. The arbitrator may award you the same damages as a court sitting in proper jurisdiction could, and may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.

Costs of Arbitration

Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by JAMS’s rules, unless otherwise provided in the agreement to arbitrate provided herein. You agree to reimburse Company for all fees it incurs in connection with the arbitration, including any filing, administration, and attorneys’ fees if Company prevails or if the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration are frivolous.

  1. REMEDIES

IF YOU COMMIT A BREACH OF THE COVENANTS, REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN SECTION 4 THAT PERTAIN TO YOUR UNAUTHORIZED DISTRIBUTION, REPLICATION, COPYING, AND/OR SALE OF COMPANY IP, THEN YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE THE VALUE OF SUCH BREACH AND ACCORDINGLY, YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT FOR SUCH BREACH COMPANY SHALL BE ENTITLED  TO RECOVER AS LIQUIDATED DAMAGES AND NOT AS A PENALTY, AN AMOUNT  EQUAL TO TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS  AND ZERO CENTS ($10,000.00USD) PER OCCURRENCE.

  1. GENERAL

Waiver

The failure of Company to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Company.

Severability

If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms, or a part thereof, unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then such provision or part thereof shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions or parts thereof.
