Disputes; Applicable Law; Notices
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to Your use of any Piloxing Service, access to the content on Our Website, or concerning any products or services sold or distributed by Piloxing or through piloxing.com will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law, and the laws of the State of California without regard to conflicts of laws principles, apply to this Agreement. You agree that the arbitration will be conducted in Los Angeles County, California.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, You must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing Your claim to the attention of our General Counsel at the address in this Agreement. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (if applicable). The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. AAA rules govern payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees. You agree to pay half of the arbitration costs no matter what.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, We each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that You or We may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights. YOU AGREE TO WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND TO ANY DEFENSE BASED ON PERSONAL JURISDICTION, VENUE OR AN INCONVENIENT FORUM, TO SERVE AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL OR IN ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, OR TO BE A MEMBER OF A CLASS, IN ANY ACTION INVOLVING ANY DISPUTE WITH US.
Whenever you give us any notice, it must be in writing to the attention of General Counsel at Our address in this Agreement, with an electronic copy to Our “email for Notice copies.” We must actually receive Your notice and You must have tracking information to prove We did. Whenever we give you any notice, we may email you or send you notice at any address where You are or may be found or that You provide Us when You use Our Website.
