- Governing Law and Forum Choice.
These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, federal arbitration law, and the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in Section 13 “Dispute Resolution for Consumers,” the exclusive jurisdiction for all Disputes (defined below) that you and MORE MEDIA are not required to arbitrate will be the state and federal courts located in the Northern District of California, and you and MORE MEDIA each waive any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
13.Dispute Resolution for Consumers.
The following terms of Section 13 “Dispute Resolution for Consumers” only apply if you are an individual who is using the MORE MEDIA Service and MORE MEDIA Content for your own personal use and are not representing a legal entity.
Mandatory Arbitration of Disputes. We each agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the MORE MEDIA Service or MORE MEDIA Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be resolved solely by binding, individual arbitration and not in a class, representative or consolidated action or proceeding. However, if for any reason a Dispute proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and we each waive any right to a jury trial.
Exceptions and Opt-out. As limited exceptions to Section 13(a) above: (i) you may seek to resolve a Dispute in small claims court If it qualifies; and (ii) we each retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief from a court to prevent (or enjoin) the infringement or misappropriation of our intellectual property rights. In addition, you will retain the right to opt-out of arbitration entirely and litigate any Dispute if you provide us with written notice of your desire to do so by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we want to begin arbitrating a Dispute, we’ll send such a letter to you at the email address or street address that you provided.
Conducting Arbitration and Arbitration Rules. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) or a comparable arbitral body (e.g., JAMS), in the event, the AAA is unable to conduct the arbitration). The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration may be conducted in writing, remotely (e.g., by video-conference) or in-person in the county where you live (or at some other location that we both agree to).
Arbitration Costs. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. We’ll pay for all filing, administration and arbitrator fees and expenses if your Dispute is for less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator finds your Dispute frivolous. If we prevail in arbitration we’ll pay all of our attorneys’ fees and costs and won’t seek to recover them from you. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses to the extent provided under applicable law.
Effect of Changes on Arbitration. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 9 “Modification of the MORE MEDIA Service or Terms of Service” above, if MORE MEDIA changes any of the terms of this Section 13 “Dispute Resolution for Consumers” after the date you first accepted these Terms of Service (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms of Service), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to email@example.com) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above or in the date of MORE MEDIA’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and MORE MEDIA in accordance with the terms of this Section 13 “Dispute Resolution for Consumers” as of the date you first accepted these Terms of Service (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms of Service).
MORE MEDIA respects copyright law and expects its users to do the same. It is MORE MEDIA’s policy to terminate in appropriate circumstances Account holders who repeatedly infringe or are believed to be repeatedly infringing the rights of copyright holders. Please see MORE MEDIA’s Copyright Policy at https://more-radio.co.za/privacy-policy/, for further information.
