E. Dispute Resolution; Governing Law; Severability, Etc.
Informal Negotiations. To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy or claim related to this Agreement, except as expressly provided below, (“Dispute”), you and YUKE'S agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating any arbitration or court proceeding. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one person to the other. YUKE'S will send its notice to billing address provided upon registration, and if no billing address is provided (specifically in relation to the Services in the Beta Release), the notice will be send to the email address provided by you. All notices to YUKE'S shall be sent to: YUKE'S, 1432 Edinger Avenue #120. Tustin, CA. 92780.
Binding Arbitration. If you and YUKE'S are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, either you or YUKE'S may elect to have the Dispute finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other party. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Consumer Rules”). The determination of whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, you and YUKE'S may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
Restrictions to Arbitration Proceedings. You and YUKE'S agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between YUKE'S and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be joined with any other; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.
Exceptions to Informal Negotiations and Arbitration. You and YUKE'S agree that the following disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration; (a) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or YUKE'S intellectual property rights; (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegation of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for injunctive relief. In the event any litigation is brought by either party in connection with this Agreement, the prevailing party in such litigation shall be entitled to recover from the other party all the costs, attorneys’ fees and other expenses incurred by such prevailing party in the litigation.
Location of Arbitration. If you are a resident of the United States, any arbitration will take place at any reasonable location convenient for you, however, if outside of Los Angeles County, California, the arbitration proceedings may be limited to submission of document, by phone or online. For residents outside the United States, any arbitration shall be initiated in Los Angeles County, California, United States of America. Any Dispute not subject to arbitration, or where no election to arbitrate has been made, shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within Los Angeles County, California, United States of America, and you and YUKE'S agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
Governing Law. Except as otherwise set forth herein, this Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to choice of law principles. This application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the international Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. For users outside the United States, other laws may apply if you choose not to agree to arbitrate as set forth above; provided, however, that such laws shall affect this Agreement only to the extent required by such jurisdiction. In such a case, this Agreement shall be interpreted to give maximum effect to the terms and conditions hereof.
Severability. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision, or portion thereof, to be unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
Complete Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the use of the Services licensed hereunder and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous understandings regarding such subject matter, provided, however, that this Agreement shall coexist with, and shall not supersede, the DC Dual Force End User Software License. To the extent that the provisions of this Agreement conflict with the provisions of the DC Dual Force End User Software License, the conflicting provisions in this Agreement shall govern. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable, that provision shall be severed and the remainder of the Agreement shall be given full force and effect.
Governing Language. Any translation of this Agreement is done for local requirements and in the event of a dispute between English and any non-English versions, the English version of this Agreement shall govern.
- This Agreement is effective until terminated. Your rights under this Agreement will terminate automatically without notice from YUKE'S if you fail to comply with any term(s) of this Agreement.
