SEVERABILITY

The provisions of these Terms of Use are intended to be severable. If for any reason any provision of these Terms of Use shall be held invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part in any jurisdiction, such provision shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability without in any manner affecting the validity of enforceability thereof in any jurisdiction or the remaining provisions hereof in any jurisdiction.

APPLICABLE LAW; JURISDICTION

The Website is created and controlled by us in the State of California, and resides on servers in California. As such, the laws of the State of California will govern these Terms of Use, without giving effect to any principles directing the choice of another jurisdiction’s laws. The parties agree that exclusive venue shall be in courts of competent jurisdiction sitting in Los Angeles County, California.

BINDING ARBITRATION

Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any related Agreement, their enforcement or interpretation, or because of an alleged breach, default or misrepresentation in connection with any of their provisions, shall be determined by binding arbitration. The arbitration proceedings shall be held and conducted by a single arbitrator in accordance with the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS (the “JAMS Rules”), as modified by this Agreement. Such arbitration shall occur in Los Angeles County, California and be initiated by any party in accordance with the JAMS Rules. The demand for arbitration shall be made by any party hereto within a reasonable time after the claim, dispute or other matter in question has arisen, and in any event shall not be made after the date when institution of legal proceeding, based on such claim, dispute or other matter in question, would be barred by the applicable statute of limitations. California Code of Civil Procedure Section 1283.05, which provides for certain discovery rights, shall apply to any such arbitration, and such Code Section is hereby incorporated by this reference. Discovery issues shall be decided by the arbitrator. Post-hearing briefs shall be permitted. The arbitrator shall render a decision within twenty (20) days after the conclusion of the hearing(s). In reaching a decision, the arbitrator shall have no authority to exchange, extend, modify or suspend any of the terms of this Agreement, or to grant an award or remedy any greater than that which would be available from a court under the statutory or common law theory asserted. The arbitrator shall issue a written opinion that includes the factual and legal basis for any decision and award. The arbitrator shall apply the substantive law (and the law of remedies, if applicable) of California or federal law, as applicable to the claim(s) asserted. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may seek, from a court of competent jurisdiction, provisional remedies or injunctive relief in order to protect our intellectual property rights and to support our rights and remedies hereunder without waiving any right to arbitration. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator shall allocate all costs and expenses of the arbitration (including legal and accounting fees and expenses of the respective parties) to the parties in the proportions that reflect their relative success on the merits (including the successful assertion of any defenses).

INDEMNITY

You agree to indemnify and hold us, our Providers, and our and their subsidiaries, affiliates, and respective officers, agents, partners and employees, harmless from any loss, liability, claim, or demand, including attorneys’ fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your use of the Website or Service in violation of this Agreement and/or arising from a breach of this Agreement and/or any breach of your representations and warranties set forth above and/or if any content that you post on the Website or through the Services causes us to be liable to another person.
