This Agreement, and all access to or use of the Service, shall be governed by New York law.
 
ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER: IMPORTANT PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
GENERAL:
You agree that, unless prohibited by applicable law, the parties to the Terms may elect to arbitrate - and require the other party to arbitrate - any claim arising out of or in any way related to this Agreement or the Service.
 
IMPORTANT NOTICE AND LIMITATIONS:
If you or we elect to arbitrate a claim, neither you nor we will have the right to: (1) have a court or a jury decide the claim; (2) participate in a class action in court or in arbitration, either as a class representative or a class member; (3) act as a private attorney general in court or in arbitration; or (4) join or consolidate your claim(s) with claims of any other person or involving any other transaction.
 
STARTING AN ARBITRATION:
To start an arbitration, you or we must give written notice of an election to arbitrate. This notice may be given after a lawsuit has been filed and may be given in papers or motions in the lawsuit. If such a notice is given, the claim shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Provision and the consumer or other applicable rules of the American Arbitration Administration then in effect using a single arbitrator appointed by the American Arbitration Association and approved by you and us. For more information please see www.adr.org.
 
NO CLASS ACTIONS:
Notwithstanding any language herein to the contrary, if you or we elect to arbitrate a claim, neither you nor we will have the right to: (1) participate in a class action in court or in arbitration, either as a class representative, class member or class opponent; (2) act as a private attorney general in court or in arbitration; or (3) join or consolidate your Claims with claims of any other person or involving any other transaction, and the arbitrator shall have no authority to conduct any such class, private attorney general or multiple-party proceeding.
 
LOCATION AND COSTS:
Any arbitration hearing that you attend will take place in a location that is reasonably convenient for you. If you cannot afford or otherwise do not want to pay the Administrator's or arbitrator's filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver of fees from the Administrator, we will consider in good faith any request by you for us to bear the cost of those fees. We will pay for our own attorneys, experts and witnesses and will pay the reasonable fees and charges of your attorneys, experts and witnesses if you win the arbitration, as determined by the arbitrator. We will pay any administration fee, arbitration fees and fees and charges of attorneys, experts and witnesses if and to the extent we are required to pay such fees and charges by law or in order to make this Arbitration Provision enforceable.
 
EFFECT OF ARBITRATION AWARD:
Any court with jurisdiction may enter judgment upon the arbitrator's award. The arbitrator's award will be final and binding, except for: (1) any appeal right under the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§1 et seq. (the"FAA"); and (2) claims involving more than $100,000. For claims involving more than $100,000, any party may appeal the award to a three-arbitrator panel appointed by the Administrator, which will reconsider anew any aspect of the initial award that is appealed. The panel's decision will be final and binding, except for any appeal right under the FAA. The costs of any appeal will be borne in accordance with the paragraph above captioned "Location And Costs."
 
GOVERNING LAW:
This Arbitration Provision is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce and shall be governed by the FAA, and not by any state law concerning arbitration.
 
SURVIVAL, SEVERABILITY, PRIMACY:
This Arbitration Provision shall survive the termination of your use of the Services, the Terms themselves and, the fulfillment of all our and your obligations under the Terms*
