Governing Law, Arbitration, and Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in New
York; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction
over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than New York. This Agreement shall be
governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of New York, without respect to its conflict of
laws principles. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving
interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any
arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal
Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the
International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the
federal and state courts located in New York County, New York for any actions for which we 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 our copyrights, trademarks, trade
secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration
provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that
New York County, New York is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court
proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO
ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM
COMPANY. For any dispute with Company, you agree to first contact us at email@example.com
and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Company has not been able
to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or
controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out
of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof
(collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration
Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at
www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in New York County, New York, unless you and
Company agree otherwise. If you are an individual using the Service for non-commercial purposes: (i)
JAMS may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully
obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of
arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses;
and (iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in
arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute
resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court
of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Company from seeking
injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened
infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other
Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver
WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES,
REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE SERVICE FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL
OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND
NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION,
PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES
TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT
CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS
AGREEMENT, YOU AND COMPANY ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO
PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER
REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.

Applications. You acknowledge that Company may from time to time issue upgraded versions of the
Mobile Applications, and may automatically electronically upgrade the version of the Mobile
Applications that you are using on your mobile device. You consent to such automatic upgrading on your

upgrades. Any third-party code that may be incorporated in the Mobile Applications is covered by the
applicable open source or third-party license EULA, if any, authorizing use of such code. The foregoing
license grant is not a sale of the Mobile Applications or any copy thereof, and Company or its third-party
partners or suppliers retain all right, title, and interest in the Mobile Applications (and any copy thereof).
Any attempt by you to transfer any of the rights, duties or obligations hereunder, except as expressly
