GOVERNING LAW AND ARBITRATION; NO CLASS ACTIONS
The Terms, and any claim, cause of action or dispute (“claim”) arising out of or related to the Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of California regardless of your country of origin or where you access the Services. ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE TERMS OR THE SERVICES WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN IN COURT, except for JobMethods’ right to seek injunctive relief as set forth below.
If you do not want to arbitrate disputes with JobMethods and you are an individual, you may opt out of this arbitration agreement by sending an email to legal@JobMethods.com within 30 days of the day you first access or use the Services.
If you intend to seek arbitration you must first send written notice to our [Customer Service Center] of your intent to arbitrate (“Notice”). The Notice to JobMethods should be sent by any of the following means: (i) electronic mail to CustomerService@JobMethods.com; or (ii) sending the Notice by U.S. Postal Service certified mail to JobMethods, Inc., 98 Mission Tierra Pl, Fremont, CA 94539, USA, Attention: "Customer Service Center - Arbitration Dept.". The Notice must (x) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (y) set forth the specific relief sought; and (z) set forth your name, address and contact information. If we intend to seek arbitration against you, we will send any notice of dispute to you at the contact information we have for you.
The arbitration will be conducted before a neutral single arbitrator, whose decision will be final and binding, and the arbitral proceedings will be governed by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules, Consumer Due Process Protocol, and Supplementary Procedures for Resolution of Consumer Related Disputes, as modified by the Terms. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this arbitration clause, but the arbitrator is bound by the terms of the Terms. If you initiate arbitration, your arbitration fees will be limited to the filing fee set forth in the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules. We will reimburse all other AAA filing, administration and arbitrator fees paid by you, unless the arbitrator determines that the arbitration was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, in which case the payment of all such fees shall be governed by the AAA rules. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. For any claim where the potential award is reasonably likely to be $10,000 or less, either you or JobMethods may elect to have the dispute resolved through non-appearance-based arbitration.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, YOU AND JOBMETHODS EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDING 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, YOU AND JOBMETHODS EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. If a court of competent jurisdiction finds the foregoing arbitration provisions invalid or inapplicable, you and we agree that all claims arising out of or related to the Terms must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in San Francisco California, and you and we each agree to submit to the exercise of personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating all such claims. Notwithstanding the above, you agree that we shall still be allowed to apply for and obtain injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out or related to your use of the Services or the Terms shall be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or will forever be barred.
