Survival: The terms of the Limited Warranty Section and the Limitation of Liability Section of this Agreement shall survive its termination.
Arbitration, Governing Law and Jurisdiction: You agree that any claim or dispute arising out of or relating in any way to your use of the Platform or any service provided by Showd.me, will be resolved solely and exclusively by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement. The laws of the State of New York shall govern this Agreement, without regard to conflict of laws principles, and shall be used in any arbitration proceeding. The United Nations Convention on the Sale of Goods shall not apply.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of this Agreement as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Arbitration under this Agreement will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules then in effect. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules.
You and Showd.me agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, both you and Showd.me agree that parties have each waived any right to a jury trial.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that Showd.me may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights, for violation of the computer fraud and abuse act, or for defamation/libel.
To the extent arbitration does not apply, you agree that any dispute arising out of or relating to the Services, or to Showd.me, may only be brought by you in a state or federal court located in New York, New York. YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY OBJECTION TO THIS VENUE AS INCONVENIENT OR INAPPROPRIATE, AND AGREE TO EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION AND VENUE IN NEW YORK. In any such proceeding, you agree that service may be made upon you via e-mail at your e-mail address that we then have on-file.
