14. THIRD-PARTY LINKS AND INFORMATION
15. GOVERNING LAW, ARBITRATION, AND CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER
15.1 Governing Law.
You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in New York; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over Us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than New York. These Terms shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of New York, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that these Terms evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of these Terms shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in New York County, New York, for any actions for which We retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of a Our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that New York County, New York, is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
Read this section carefully because it requires the parties to arbitrate their disputes and limits the manner in which You can seek relief from Share Local Media. For any dispute with Share Local Media, You agree to first contact Us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with Us informally. In the unlikely event that Share Local Media has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with You after sixty (60) days, We each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in New York County, New York, unless You and Share Local Media agree otherwise. If You are using the Service for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If You are an individual using the Service for noncommercial purposes: (i) JAMS may require You to pay a fee for the initiation of Your case, unless You apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include Your costs of arbitration, Your reasonable attorney’s fees, and Your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) You may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve You of Your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Share Local Media from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of Our data security, Intellectual Property Rights, or other proprietary rights.
15.3 Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver.
With respect to all persons and entities, regardless of whether they have obtained or used the Service for personal, commercial or other purposes, all Claims must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or other representative proceeding. This waiver applies to class arbitration, and, unless We agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s Claims. You agree that, by entering into these Terms, You and Share Local Media are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or other representative proceeding of any kind.
16.1 Waiver and Severability.
The waiver by either party of any default or breach of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of any other or subsequent default or breach and Share Local Media’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. In the event any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of these Terms shall remain in full force and effect.
These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by You, but may be assigned by Share Local Media without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
16.3 Entire Agreement.
These Terms together with the Supplemental Agreement (if any) constitute the complete and exclusive agreement between the parties concerning its subject matter and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements or understandings, written or oral, concerning the subject matter of these Terms.
