Except if you opt-out or for disputes relating to your or our intellectual property (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights and patents) or for items (1)-(3) set forth in Section 19, you agree that all disputes between you and us (whether or not such dispute involves a third party) arising out of or relating to these Terms, our Services or our Privacy Policy shall be finally resolved by arbitration before a single arbitrator conducted in the English language in New York, New York, U.S.A. under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). You and we shall appoint as sole arbitrator a person mutually agreed by you and us or, if you and we cannot agree within thirty (30) days of either party’s request for arbitration, such single arbitrator shall be selected by the AAA upon the request of either party.  The parties shall bear equally the cost of the arbitration (except that the prevailing party shall be entitled to an award of reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in connection with the arbitration in such an amount as may be determined by the arbitrator). All decisions of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on both parties and enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding this, application may be made to any court for a judicial acceptance of the award or order of enforcement. Under no circumstances shall the arbitrator be authorized to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms.

Any claims brought by you or us must be brought in that party’s individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. Neither you nor us will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by these Terms. You hereby waive any and all rights to bring any claims related to these Terms or our privacy policy as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. You may bring claims only on your own behalf.

You may opt out of this Agreement To Arbitrate. If you do so, neither you nor we can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, you must notify us in writing within thirty (30) days of the date that you first became subject to this arbitration provision.
