- your relationship with us or our website, or
- the subject of a purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class;
will be resolved by binding arbitration or in a small claims court as you choose. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law will control and apply to this agreement.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of a binding arbitration award is usually final. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court. Of course any matter you wish to bring to the attention of any governmental agency, may be pursued.

The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org. At its conclusion the Arbitrator will issue a written finding. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. We will reimburse you for those fees you incur if you are successful in your claim. Otherwise neither party will recover its attorney fees and costs in arbitration or small claims court. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, written submission, or in person, either in the county where you live, or in Los Angeles County, California, as you choose.
We each agree that we waive any right to a jury trial, and that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action, and that you will not act as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding or act as a private attorney general.
