DISPUTES; ARBITRATION; GOVERNING LAW

YOU AGREE THAT THESE TERMS AND YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM ARE GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF RHODE ISLAND, USA. BOTH YOU AND THE ABCYA PARTIES WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND THE RIGHT TO BRING OR RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE AS A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY PROVISION IN THE JAMS (DEFINED BELOW) RULES TO THE CONTRARY, THE ARBITRATOR WILL NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY OR ANY JURISDICTION TO HEAR THE ARBITRATION AS A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR TO CONSOLIDATE, JOIN, OR OTHERWISE COMBINE THE CLAIMS OF DIFFERENT PERSONS INTO ONE PROCEEDING.

THE PARTIES EACH AGREE TO FINALLY SETTLE ALL DISPUTES ONLY THROUGH ARBITRATION; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THE ABCYA PARTIES WILL BE ENTITLED TO SEEK INJUNCTIVE OR EQUITABLE RELIEF IN THE STATE AND FEDERAL COURTS LOCATED IN PROVIDENCE COUNTY, RHODE ISLAND, AND ANY OTHER COURT WITH JURISDICTION OVER THE PARTIES. IN ARBITRATION, THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY AND REVIEW IS LIMITED.

THE PARTIES AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS SET FORTH ABOVE, ANY CLAIM, SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE PLATFORM AND YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM WILL BE RESOLVED SOLELY BY BINDING ARBITRATION BEFORE A SOLE ARBITRATOR UNDER THE STREAMLINED ARBITRATION RULES PROCEDURES OF JAMS INC. ("JAMS") OR ANY SUCCESSOR TO JAMS. IN THE EVENT JAMS IS UNWILLING OR UNABLE TO SET A HEARING DATE WITHIN FOURTEEN (14) DAYS OF THE FILING OF A "DEMAND FOR ARBITRATION," THEN EITHER PARTY CAN ELECT TO HAVE THE ARBITRATION ADMINISTERED BY ANOTHER MUTUALLY AGREEABLE ARBITRATION ADMINISTRATION SERVICE THAT WILL HEAR THE CASE. DESKTOP, ONLINE, WRITTEN OR TELEPHONE ARBITRATION CAN BE USED FOR CLAIMS. IF AN IN-PERSON HEARING IS REQUESTED BY YOU, REQUIRED BY THE ARBITRATOR OR REQUIRED BY THE RULES OF THE ARBITRATION ADMINISTRATION HEARING THE CLAIM, THEN IT WILL TAKE PLACE IN BOSTON, MA, NEW YORK, NY, CHICAGO, IL, LOS ANGELES, CA, ATLANTA, GA OR DALLAS, TX (WHICHEVER IS CLOSEST TO YOUR RESIDENCE). DISPUTES WILL BE ARBITRATED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND WILL NOT BE CONSOLIDATED WITH ANY OTHER PROCEEDINGS THAT INVOLVE ANY CLAIMS OR CONTROVERSY OF ANOTHER PARTY, INCLUDING ANY CLASS ACTIONS OR CLASS ARBITRATIONS; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, IF FOR ANY REASON ANY COURT OR ARBITRATOR HOLDS THAT THIS RESTRICTION IS UNCONSCIONABLE OR UNENFORCEABLE, THEN THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE DOES NOT APPLY AND THE DISPUTE MUST BE BROUGHT IN A COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION LOCATED IN OR HAVING JURISDICTION OVER PROVIDENCE COUNTY, RHODE ISLAND. THE ABCYA PARTIES AGREE TO PAY THE ADMINISTRATIVE AND ARBITRATOR'S FEES IN ORDER TO CONDUCT THE ARBITRATION (BUT SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDING ANY TRAVEL OR OTHER COSTS OF YOU ATTENDING THE ARBITRATION HEARING). EITHER PARTY MAY, NOTWITHSTANDING THIS PROVISION, BRING QUALIFYING CLAIMS IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT. IN NO EVENT WILL YOU SEEK OR BE ENTITLED TO RESCISSION, INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF OR TO ENJOIN OR RESTRAIN THE OPERATION OR EXPLOITATION OF THE PLATFORM.

DISPUTES; ARBITRATION; GOVERNING LAW

YOU AGREE THAT THESE TERMS AND YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM ARE GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF RHODE ISLAND, USA.

NOTWITHSTANDING ANY PROVISION IN THE JAMS (DEFINED BELOW) RULES TO THE CONTRARY, THE ARBITRATOR WILL NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY OR ANY JURISDICTION TO HEAR THE ARBITRATION AS A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR TO CONSOLIDATE, JOIN, OR OTHERWISE COMBINE THE CLAIMS OF DIFFERENT PERSONS INTO ONE PROCEEDING.

THE PARTIES EACH AGREE TO FINALLY SETTLE ALL DISPUTES ONLY THROUGH ARBITRATION; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THE ABCYA PARTIES WILL BE ENTITLED TO SEEK INJUNCTIVE OR EQUITABLE RELIEF IN THE STATE AND FEDERAL COURTS LOCATED IN PROVIDENCE COUNTY, RHODE ISLAND, AND ANY OTHER COURT WITH JURISDICTION OVER THE PARTIES.

("JAMS") OR ANY SUCCESSOR TO JAMS. IN THE EVENT JAMS IS UNWILLING OR UNABLE TO SET A HEARING DATE WITHIN FOURTEEN (14) DAYS OF THE FILING OF A "DEMAND FOR ARBITRATION," THEN EITHER PARTY CAN ELECT TO HAVE THE ARBITRATION ADMINISTERED BY ANOTHER MUTUALLY AGREEABLE ARBITRATION ADMINISTRATION SERVICE THAT WILL HEAR THE CASE.

DISPUTES WILL BE ARBITRATED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND WILL NOT BE CONSOLIDATED WITH ANY OTHER PROCEEDINGS THAT INVOLVE ANY CLAIMS OR CONTROVERSY OF ANOTHER PARTY, INCLUDING ANY CLASS ACTIONS OR CLASS ARBITRATIONS; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, IF FOR ANY REASON ANY COURT OR ARBITRATOR HOLDS THAT THIS RESTRICTION IS UNCONSCIONABLE OR UNENFORCEABLE, THEN THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE DOES NOT APPLY AND THE DISPUTE MUST BE BROUGHT IN A COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION LOCATED IN OR HAVING JURISDICTION OVER PROVIDENCE COUNTY, RHODE ISLAND. THE ABCYA PARTIES AGREE TO PAY THE ADMINISTRATIVE AND ARBITRATOR'S FEES IN ORDER TO CONDUCT THE ARBITRATION (BUT SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDING ANY TRAVEL OR OTHER COSTS OF YOU ATTENDING THE ARBITRATION HEARING). EITHER PARTY MAY, NOTWITHSTANDING THIS PROVISION, BRING QUALIFYING CLAIMS IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT. IN NO EVENT WILL YOU SEEK OR BE ENTITLED TO RESCISSION, INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF OR TO ENJOIN OR RESTRAIN THE OPERATION OR EXPLOITATION OF THE PLATFORM.
