THE VALIDITY, CONSTRUCTION, INTERPRETATION, AND PERFORMANCE OF THESE TERMS WILL BE EXCLUSIVELY GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE DOMESTIC LAWS OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, EXCEPT AS TO ITS PRINCIPLES OF CONFLICTS OF LAWS, AND WITHOUT REGARD TO THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTION ON THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THIS CONTRACT IS NOT A CONTRACT FOR THE SALE OF GOODS; THEREFORE, THIS AGREEMENT WILL NOT BE GOVERNED BY ANY CODIFICATION OF ARTICLE 2 OR 2A OF THE UNIFORM COMMERCIAL CODE, OR ANY CODIFICATION OF THE UNIFORM COMPUTER INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY ACT (“UCITA”), OR ANY REFERENCES TO THE UNITED NATIONAL CONVENTION ON CONTRACTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS.
You hereby acknowledge that a breach of these Terms may cause irreparable harm and significant injury to Company that may be difficult to ascertain, and that a remedy at law may be inadequate. Accordingly, you agree that Company shall be entitled, without waiving any additional rights or remedies otherwise available to Company at law or in equity and without the necessity of posting bond, to seek injunctive and other equitable relief in the event of a breach or intended or threatened breach by you. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Company shall be entitled to seek and obtain injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction.
EXCEPT IN THE CASE OF LEGAL ACTION BROUGHT BY COMPANY TO OBTAIN INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF OF WHATSOEVER KIND, ALL OF WHICH MAY BE BROUGHT IN ANY COURT OR OTHER TRIBUNAL OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION, ANY CONTROVERSY, CLAIM, DISPUTE OR OTHER LEGAL PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR THEIR SUBJECT MATTER, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STATUTE, FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, SHALL BE SUBMITTED TO THE OFFICE OF THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION LOCATED IN, OR CLOSEST TO, ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, AND WILL BE SETTLED BY ARBITRATION TO OCCUR IN ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, SAID ARBITRATION TO BE ADMINISTERED BY THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH ITS COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION RULES, IN EFFECT AT THE TIME OF THE ARBITRATION, THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA GOVERNING SUCH ARBITRATIONS, AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE TERMS. SUCH ARBITRATION MUST BE FILED WITHIN TWELVE (12) MONTHS OF THE FIRST ACCRUAL OF THE CAUSE OF ACTION, AND THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS FOR ANY CAUSE OF ACTION BROUGHT PURSUANT TO, IN CONNECTION WITH, OR RELATING TO A DISPUTE WILL BE TWELVE (12) MONTHS FROM THE FIRST ACCRUAL OF THE CAUSE OF ACTION, NOTWITHSTANDING ANY STATUTE TO THE CONTRARY. ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THESE TERMS WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED.
The arbitration will be heard and decided no later than seven (7) months after the notice of arbitration is filed with the American Arbitration Association by one arbitrator. The arbitrator will hear and determine any preliminary issue of law asserted by a party to be dispositive of any claim, in whole or in part, in the manner of a court hearing a motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim or for summary judgment, pursuant to such terms and procedures as the arbitrator deems appropriate. No witness or party may be required to waive any privilege recognized under California law. The hearing will not last longer than four (4) days unless all parties agree otherwise, with time to be divided equally between you and Company. The arbitrator will be an attorney, licensed to practice law in the State of California for no less than ten (10) years, with no less than five (5) years’ experience as an arbitrator. The parties and the arbitrator will treat all aspects of the arbitration proceedings, including, without limitation, discovery, testimony and other evidence, briefs, and the award, as strictly confidential and not subject to disclosure to any third party or entity, other than to the parties, the arbitrator, and the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator must give full effect to the applicable law and to all of these Terms, and is specifically divested of any power to add to, subtract from, modify or alter any of the terms or conditions of these Terms, or to render decisions in derogation thereof. The arbitrator will have no authority to award punitive or other damages not measured by the prevailing party’s actual direct damages, except as may be required by statute. THE PARTIES UNDERSTAND THAT THEY ARE WAIVING THEIR RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Company agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void. The arbitrator will issue written findings of fact and conclusions of law, the decisions of the arbitrator will be binding and conclusive upon all parties involved, and judgment upon any decision of the arbitrator may be entered in any federal or state courts with jurisdiction. You are solely responsible for your interactions with other users of the Website. Company reserves the right, but has no obligation, to monitor disputes between you and other users of the Website.
In any litigation, arbitration or other proceeding by which one party either seeks to enforce its rights under these Terms (whether in contract, tort, or both) or seeks a declaration of any rights or obligations under these Terms, in addition to any other relief to which the prevailing party may be entitled, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover its reasonable attorney fees, costs and expenses to resolve the dispute and to enforce the final judgment.

The foregoing does not apply to the prohibition against class or representative actions that is part of the arbitration clause; if that prohibition is found to be unenforceable, the arbitration clause (but only the arbitration clause) shall be null and void.
These Terms and any other electronic documents, policies and guidelines incorporated herein shall be: (i) deemed for all purposes to be a “writing” or “in writing,” and to comply with all statutory, contractual, and other legal requirements for a writing; (ii) legally enforceable against any party hereto as a signed writing; and (iii) deemed an “original” when printed from electronic records established and maintained in the ordinary course of business.
