13.2.2 Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver
After the informal dispute resolution process, any remaining dispute, controversy, or claim (collectively, "Claim") relating in any way to your use of GearUP Portal’s services and/or products, including the Game, will be resolved by arbitration, including threshold questions of arbitrability of the Claim. You and GearUP Portal agree that any Claim will be settled by final and binding arbitration, using the English language, administered by JAMS under its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and the JAMS Consumer Minimum Standards (together, the "JAMS Rules") then in effect (those rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference into this section, and as of the date of this Agreement). Arbitration will be handled by a sole arbitrator in accordance with the JAMS Rules. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court that has jurisdiction. You have a right to have the arbitration conducted via telephone, or as an in-person hearing in your hometown area (if you live in the United States) or another location that is reasonably convenient to you.
13.2.3 Waiver of Class Actions and Class Arbitrations
You and GearUP Portal agree that each party may bring Claims against the other party only in an individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding, including without limitation federal or state class actions, or class arbitrations. Accordingly, under the arbitration procedures outlined in this section, an arbitrator shall not combine or consolidate more than one party’s claims without the written consent of all affected parties to an arbitration proceeding. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you and GearUP Portal agree that no dispute shall proceed by way of class arbitration without the written consent of all affected parties.
13.2.4 Costs of Arbitration
Payment for any and all reasonable JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be in accordance with the JAMS Rules. If the value of your claim does not exceed $1000, GearUP Portal will pay for the reasonable filing, administrative and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration, unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, except that if you have initiated the arbitration claim, you will still be required to pay the lesser of $250 or the maximum amount permitted under the JAMS Rules for arbitration claims initiated by you. You are still responsible for all additional costs that you incur in the arbitration, including without limitation, fees for attorneys or expert witnesses.
You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and waiver of class provisions set forth in this Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to firstname.lastname@example.org. The notice must be sent to GearUP Portal within thirty (30) days of your registering to use the Software or agreeing to this Agreement (or if this Section 13.2 is amended hereafter, within thirty (30) days of such amendment being effective), otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with this Agreement, and the notice must specify your name and mailing address. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, GearUP Portal also will not be bound by them.
Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, you may instead assert your Claim in "small claims" court, but only if your Claim qualifies, your Claim remains only in such court, and your Claim remains on an individual, non-representative and non-class basis. Further, you and GearUP Portal will have the right to bring an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable or conservatory relief, or if the Claim relates to intellectual property infringement or misappropriation.
13.2.7 Governing Law; Venue
This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of New York, without regard to conflict of laws rules, and the proper venue for any disputes arising out of or relating to any of the same will be the arbitration venue set forth in this Section 13.2, or if arbitration does not apply, then the state and federal courts located in Los Angeles county, California. You and GearUP Portal agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to the interpretation or construction of this Agreement.
