Governing Law; Waiver Of Jury Trial.

The United Nations Convention on the International Sales of Goods does not apply to this Agreement.
Dispute Resolution. Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with Pine Park and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
Small Claims Court. You agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your access or use of any Site or Service, or to any aspect of your relationship with Pine Park, will be resolved by binding arbitration (as described below), rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims in small claims court located in Los Angeles County, California if your claims qualify; and (2) Pine Park may seek equitable relief or other appropriate relief in any court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents) and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts. You acknowledge that any use of the Services contrary to these Terms, or any transfer, sublicensing, copying, or disclosure of Content or other materials related to the Services, may cause irreparable injury to Pine Park. This Arbitration Agreement applies, without limitation, to all claims that arose or were asserted before the effective date of these Terms, including prior versions of these Terms. ACCORDINGLY, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU MAY NOT HAVE ACCESS TO A COURT OTHER THAN A SMALL CLAIMS COURT. If you elect to file a small claims court action or to seek arbitration, you must first send a written notice of your claim to Pine Park by Certified Mail and allow fifteen (15) days for us to respond before filing your claim. This notice must be addressed to: Agent for Service of Process at: 701 Ocean Front Walk #4, Venice, CA 90291.
Arbitration. Notwithstanding the Governing law section above, the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to us addressed to 4055 Redwood Ave, #420, Los Angeles, CA 90066. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider in the County of Los Angeles, CA, by telephone or a mutually agreed location. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other claims shall be subject to the JAMS most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. The JAMS rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, Pine Park will pay them for you. In addition, Pine Park will reimburse all such JAMS filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (a) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement and (b) resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Pine Park. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and these Terms (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.
Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND Pine Park HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and Pine Park are instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow these Terms as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a given claim for relief, then the claim must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the State or Federal Courts located in Los Angeles, CA. All other claims shall be arbitrated.
Complete Agreement. These Terms constitute the entire agreement binding you and Pine Park with respect to your use of the Services, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous understandings, whether written or oral, regarding such subject matter.
Miscellaneous. Any remedy of Pine Parkset forth in these Terms is in addition to any other remedy afforded to Pine Park under applicable Law or otherwise. Pine Park’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is held to be unenforceable, then that provision is to be construed either by modifying it to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable (if permitted by Law) or disregarding it (if not). If an unenforceable provision is modified or disregarded in accordance with this Section, the rest of the Terms is to remain in effect as written, and the unenforceable provision is to remain as written in any circumstances other than those in which the provision is held to be unenforceable. You may not assign or otherwise transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Terms without Pine Park’s prior written consent. Any purported assignment in violation of this Section shall be void.Pine Park may freely assign or otherwise transfer its rights or obligations under these Terms. These Terms shall apply to and be binding upon the approved successors and permitted assigns of the parties hereto. The parties are independent contractors. These Terms do not create a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary or employment relationship between the parties. These Terms do not and are not intended to confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than you and Pine Park. For all purposes of these Terms, the words “including” and “includes” mean inclusion without limitation.
Notices. All notices, requests, approvals, and other communications required or permitted to be given by you hereunder must be in writing, delivered by personal delivery, nationally recognized overnight courier, by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested or by email and will be deemed given upon personal delivery, one business day after deposit with a nationally recognized overnight courier, five days after deposit in the mail, or on the date sent by email with confirmation of transmission, if sent during normal business hours of Pine Park, and on the next business day, if sent after normal business hours of Pine Park.
