18. Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver. DISPUTES ARISING FROM THESE WEBSITE TERMS AND YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES SHALL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION AS PROVIDED BELOW. BY AGREEING TO BINDING ARBITRATION, YOU ARE HEREBY WAIVING THE RIGHT TO BRING DISPUTES TO A COURT, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY. Neither you nor Monte Carlo will seek to have a dispute heard as a class action or private attorney general action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to the arbitrations or proceedings.
You and Monte Carlo agree to arbitrate, as provided below, all disputes between you (including any related disputes involving Monte Carlo, its subsidiaries or its affiliates), that are not resolved informally, except disputes relating to the ownership or enforcement of intellectual property rights. “Dispute” includes any dispute, action, or other controversy, whether based on past, present, or future events, between you and us concerning the Site or these Website Terms, whether in contract, tort, warranty, statute, regulation, or other legal or equitable basis. You and Monte Carlo empower the arbitrator with the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability or enforceability of these Website Terms or the formation of this contract, including the arbitrability of any dispute and any claim that all or any part of these Website Terms are void or voidable.
In the event of a dispute, you or Monte Carlo must send to the other party a notice of dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving the notice, the facts giving rise to the dispute, and the relief requested. You must send any notice of dispute to Monte Carlo at 548 Market Street, PMB 59994, San Francisco, CA 94104, USA, Attention: Legal Department. We will send any notice of dispute to you at the contact information we have for you. You and Monte Carlo will attempt to resolve a dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the notice of dispute is sent. After that sixty (60) day period and not before, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding. You may instead litigate a dispute in small claims court if the dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court, whether or not you negotiated informally first.
If you and Monte Carlo do not resolve a dispute by informal negotiation or in small claims court, the dispute shall be resolved by binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act. YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY. Arbitration will be administered by JAMS Mediation, Arbitration and ADR Services (“JAMS”) in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “JAMS Rules”). The JAMS Rules and instructions about how to initiate an arbitration are available at www.jamsadr.com or 1-800-352-5267. Arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. Proceedings that cannot be conducted through the submission of documents, by phone, or online, will take place in San Francisco, California, provided, however, that if circumstances prevent you from traveling to California, JAMS may hold an in-person hearing in your hometown area. You and Monte Carlo agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the State and Federal Courts situated in San Francisco, California in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. The arbitrator may award damages to you individually as a court could, including declaratory or injunctive relief, but only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim.
In accordance with the JAMS Rules, the party initiating the arbitration (either you or Monte Carlo) is responsible for paying the filing fee. However, if the arbitrator issues you an award of damages and: (a) that award is greater than the amount of our last written settlement offer; or (b) if we did not make a settlement offer, then in addition to paying for any JAMS Case Management Fees and all professional fees for the arbitrator’s services, we will reimburse you for the filing fees you incurred.
Except as provided above with respect to jurisdiction in San Francisco, California, nothing in this arbitration provision shall be construed as consent by Monte Carlo to the jurisdiction of any other court with regard to disputes, claims or controversies unrelated to the Site or these Website Terms.
19. Governing Law. These Website Terms and your use of the Site is governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the internal substantive laws of the State of California (notwithstanding the state’s conflict of laws provisions) applicable to contracts made, executed and wholly performed in California. To the extent that the arbitration provision outlined in Section 18 is not applicable (e.g., when confirming an arbitration award), you specifically agree and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the State and Federal Courts situated in the San Francisco, California and agree you shall not object to such jurisdiction or venue on the grounds of lack of personal jurisdiction, forum non conveniens or otherwise.
