Arbitration

You and Company agree that we will resolve any disputes between us through binding and final arbitration instead of through court proceedings.

The arbitrator’s decision shall be controlled by these Terms of Use and any of the other agreements governing your use of the Services. The arbitrator shall not have the power to award punitive damages against any Party. The parties agree that the arbitration will be kept confidential and that the existence of the proceeding and any element of it (including, without limitation, any pleadings, briefs, documents, or other evidence submitted or exchanged and any testimony or other oral submissions and awards) will not be disclosed beyond the arbitration proceedings, except as may lawfully be required in judicial proceedings relating to the arbitration or by applicable disclosure rules and regulations of securities regulatory authorities or other governmental agencies.

YOU MAY NOT ACT AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, NOR PARTICIPATE AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS OF CLAIMANTS, WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM.

THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN THE CLAIMS OF OTHER PERSONS OR PARTIES WHO MAY BE SIMILARLY SITUATED.

This section limits certain rights, including the right to maintain a court action, the right to a jury trial, the right to participate in any form of class or representative claim, the right to engage in discovery except as provided in the arbitration rules, and the right to certain remedies and forms of relief. Other rights that you or company would have in court also may not be available in arbitration.

Miscellaneous

Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Terms of Use is found to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the arbitrator or court should try to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms of Use shall remain in full force and effect.
