XIV. GOVERNING LAW, ARBITRATION CLAUSE & CLASS ACTION WAIVER
If there is any dispute between you and Creator Machine about or involving the Service, you expressly agree that any such dispute shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
You agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy arising in connection with or relating in any way to this Agreement, your use of the Service or the Service will be determined solely by mandatory binding individual (not class) arbitration administered in the County of New York,
State of New York by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules. You agree that the arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have the exclusive power and authority to resolve all disputes and to rule on the arbitrator’s jurisdiction, including any objections related thereto of any nature whatsoever. There will be no judge or jury in the arbitration proceeding and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow this Agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney fees), except that the arbitrator may not award any relief, including declaratory or injunctive relief, benefiting anyone other than the parties to the arbitration. This arbitration provision will survive termination of this Agreement. YOU AND CREATOR MACHINE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY
PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. Unless both you and Creator Machine agree, no arbitrator or judge may consolidate more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, you and Creator Machine may seek injunctive or equitable relief in a state or federal court sitting in the County of New York, State of New York, if a claim arises that relates to the enforcement of intellectual property rights. For those disputes brough in state or federal court, you and Creator Machine agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the county of New York, New York.
You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address: [email address]. The notice must be sent within 30 days of your first use of the Service; otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. If you opt out of these arbitration provisions, Creator Machine also will not be bound by them.
