Please read this carefully if You are a resident of the United States of America. It affects Your rights.

Foreign laws do not apply.  The United Nations on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and any laws based on the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (UCITA) shall not apply to these Terms.  Any disputes relating to these Terms or the Service will be heard in the courts located in Los Angeles County in the State of California, except as otherwise agreed by the parties or as described in the Arbitration subsection below.

(b) Arbitration. You agree that the Company may, at its sole option, elect to resolve the dispute in a cost-effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. In the event the Company elects arbitration, You hereby agree to move any claims to the exclusive jurisdiction of an arbitration procedure, which shall be initiated through an established alternative dispute resolution provider (“ADR”) chosen by the Company. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: (i) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (ii) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties, in which case the location of the arbitration shall be Los Angeles County in of California; and (iii) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Arbitration expressly excludes claims for injunctive or other equitable relief. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, in no event may any dispute regarding the scope or validity of Company’s Intellectual Property Rights be submitted to arbitration, and the arbitrator shall have no authority to make any finding or judgment with respect to such scope or validity.

(c) Waiver of Jury Trial.  YOU HEREBY WAIVE YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY.  In the event any litigation should arise between You and the Company in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.
