8. BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IF YOU DO NOT REJECT IT, THIS SECTION WILL APPLY, AND MOST DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US WILL BE SUBJECT TO INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION. THIS MEANS THAT: (1) NEITHER A COURT NOR A JURY WILL RESOLVE ANY SUCH DISPUTE; (2) YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR SIMILAR PROCEEDING; (3) LESS INFORMATION WILL BE AVAILABLE IN DISCOVERY; AND (4) APPEAL RIGHTS WILL BE LIMITED.
- 8.1. General. If a dispute arises between you and us, our goal is to provide you with a neutral and cost effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. Accordingly, you and the Company agree that you and we will resolve any claim or controversy at law or equity that arises out of these Terms, the Service, or our products or services (a “Claim”) in accordance with one of the subsections below.
- 8.2. If either you or we make a demand for arbitration, you and we must arbitrate any dispute or claim between you or any person who uses your Account, and us, our affiliates, and/or agents, if it relates to your Account, your use of the Service, or to these Terms, except as noted hereafter.
- 8.3. Either party may assert an individual case in small claims court or your state’s equivalent court. Any disputes relating to the enforcement, protection, or validity of the intellectual property rights of either party shall not be subject to arbitration. Nothing in this Section shall limit either party from seeking injunctive or other exigent relief from a court of law.
- 8.4. Notwithstanding any other language in this Section, only a court, not an arbitrator, will decide disputes about the validity, enforceability, coverage or scope of this Section of these Terms. However, any dispute or argument that concerns the validity or enforceability of these Terms as a whole is for the arbitrator, not a court, to decide. Further, you and we may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
- 8.5. YOU AGREE NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION AGAINST US IN COURT OR ARBITRATION. ALSO, YOU MAY NOT BRING CLAIMS AGAINST US ON BEHALF OF ANY OTHER USER OR PERSON NOT ON YOUR ACCOUNT.

This notice can be given after the beginning of a lawsuit or in papers filed in the lawsuit.
- 8.7. The arbitration administrator shall be JAMS and the arbitration shall be conducted under the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS (“JAMS Rules”) that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated. The JAMS Rules can be accessed at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/. In the event of a conflict between the terms set forth in this Section of the Agreement and the JAMS Rules, the terms in this Section of the Agreement will control.
- 8.8. The arbitrator must apply the same law and legal principles, consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), that would apply in court, but may use different procedural rules.
- 8.9. We will pay all the fees that the administrator or arbitrator charges.
- 8.10. Because the products, software and/or service provided to you by the Company concern interstate commerce, the FAA governs the arbitrability of all disputes. Delaware law shall apply to the extent state law is relevant under the FAA. The arbitrator’s decision will be final and binding on all parties and enforceable in any court that has jurisdiction, provided that any award may be challenged under the provisions of the FAA.
- 8.11. Except for claims subject to arbitration as provided for in this section (and claims proceeding in any small claims court), all other disputes arising out of or related to your Account, your use of the Website, or to this Agreement shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Durham, North Carolina, and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts.
- 8.12. Severability. If any portion of this Section 8 is found illegal or unenforceable (except any portion of Section 8.3), that portion shall be severed and the remainder of this Section 8 shall be given full force and effect. If Section 8.3 is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither you nor we will elect to arbitrate any claim falling within that portion of Section 8.3 found to be illegal or unenforceable and such claim shall be exclusively decided by a court of competent jurisdiction consistent with Section 8.11.
- 8.13. Survival. This Section shall survive any termination of the Terms.
