PART 12 – GOVERNING LAW AND ARBITRATION

 

These Terms of Service covering our Services shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of California. Nothing in these Terms of Service shall prevent The Artist Tree and its affiliates from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief, payment of amounts due, or enforcement of an award before any court having jurisdiction over any person.

The Artist Tree and you agree to submit to the nonexclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts located in Los Angeles, California.

In the event of a dispute with The Artist Tree, you agree to contact The Artist Tree in good faith to resolve the dispute. All offers, promises, and statements, whether oral or written shall be confidential, privileged and inadmissible provided that evidence that is otherwise admissible or discoverable shall not be rendered inadmissible or non-discoverable as a result of its use in the negotiation.

If the dispute has not been resolved after thirty (30) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy arising out of or in connection with or in any way relating to these Terms of Service and/or our Services by binding arbitration rather than in court in Los Angeles, California before one arbitrator jointly selected by the parties. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within thirty (30) days of a party’s notice of intention to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to use the American Arbitration Association as an appointing authority. The arbitration shall be held in Los Angeles, California in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s Commercial Arbitration Rules. In any arbitration arising out of or related to this Agreement, the parties shall share the arbitrator’s fee and any filing fees equally. The arbitrator shall award the prevailing party its attorneys’ fees and costs but shall not grant punitive damages. Judgment on the award may be entered in any state court having appropriate jurisdiction. The parties understand that by agreeing to binding arbitration, they are giving up rights that they may otherwise have to trial by a court or jury, and all rights of appeal. This section will not preclude the parties hereto from seeking injunctive relief and/or provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a state court of appropriate jurisdiction.

 

PART 13 – CLASS ACTION WAIVER

 

Any dispute whether in arbitration or court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class or representative action or as a named or unnamed member in a class, consolidated, representative or private attorney general legal action.  Your access and continued use of the Services signifies your explicit consent to this waiver.

 

PART 14 – NON-WAIVER/SEVERABILITY

 

No waiver of any breach of any provision of these Terms of Service shall constitute a waiver of any prior, concurrent or subsequent breach of the same or any other provisions hereof, and no waiver shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party.

The provisions of these Terms of Service are intended to be severable. If for any reason, any provision or part of a provision of these Terms of Service shall be held invalid, void, or unenforceable in whole or in part that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms of Service and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

 

PART 15 – COMPLAINTS
