All matters relating to the Services or the Agreement, and any dispute or claim between the parties arising out of or related to the Services or the Agreement (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of New York and applicable federal law, without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of New York or any other jurisdiction).
18. Dispute Resolution
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. YOU AND THE COMPANY ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY, OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY ALSO BE UNAVAILABLE OR MAY BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
- You hereby agree that, except as provided in Section 18.G below, any claim, dispute, or controversy between you and the Company, whether brought by you or by the Company, arising out of or relating in any way to the Agreement or your purchase or use of the Services must be resolved through final, binding, and confidential arbitration located in New York County, New York, USA.
- The arbitration will be administered by JAMS in accordance with the then-current Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures for commercial contracts (the "JAMS Rules") The parties will mutually agree on an arbitrator, provided that if the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator within ten (10) days, JAMS will choose the arbitrator. In rendering an award, the arbitrator shall apply the governing law stated in Section 17, except that the Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.
- Unless you opt-out of arbitration as set forth below, and except with respect to the class arbitration waiver as set forth in Section 18.D below, the arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court, will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to interpretation, applicability, unconscionability, formation, arbitrability, and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision, including any challenge that the arbitration provision or the Agreement is void, voidable, or otherwise invalid. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, the arbitration will be subject to different rules than the rules that would apply in court, and court review of arbitration awards is very limited. However, the arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity (including injunctive and declaratory relief and statutory damages) and must follow the Agreement, as a court would. Any award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties, and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
- You agree that an arbitration will be conducted on an individual, and not a class-wide, basis. An arbitrator will have no authority to certify a class or award class-wide relief. The arbitrator is authorized only to award relief on behalf of the individual parties and only to their extent of their individual claims. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT UNLESS OTHERWISE AGREED IN WRITING BY YOU AND THE COMPANY, WITH REGARD TO ANY CLAIMS HEREUNDER, YOU WILL NOT BE ENTITLED TO SEEK TO, AND AN ARBITRATOR OR COURT MAY NOT, JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE YOUR CLAIMS WITH ANY OTHER SIMILAR CLAIMS OF ANY OTHER PERSON OR PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER, OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. The arbitral tribunal has no power to consider the enforceability of this class arbitration waiver and any challenge to the class arbitration waiver may only be raised in a court of competent jurisdiction.
- If for any reason, a claim proceeds in court rather than arbitration under this Section 18, the claim shall be resolved exclusively (except as provided in Section 18.G below) in the appropriate state and federal courts located in New York County, New York. Both parties hereby irrevocably consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens, with respect to venue and jurisdiction in such courts for the adjudication of such claims.
- Notwithstanding anything else in this Section 18 to the contrary, the following claims may be brought in any court of competent jurisdiction: claims to the extent alleging efforts to interfere with the Services or engage with the Services in an unauthorized manner. In addition, either you or we have the option to bring claims in court to seek temporary or preliminary injunctive relief without seeking damages, in any court of competent jurisdiction.
- Electronic Communications Notice. Sending us emails and completing online forms constitute electronic communications. You consent to receive electronic communications, and you agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications we provide to you electronically, via email or the Website, satisfy any legal requirement that such communication be in writing.

If you have a printer, you may print paper copies of any such communications for your own use. YOU HEREBY AGREE TO THE USE OF ELECTRONIC SIGNATURES, CONTRACTS, ORDERS, AND OTHER RECORDS, AND TO ELECTRONIC DELIVERY OF NOTICES, POLICIES, AND RECORDS OF TRANSACTIONS INITIATED OR COMPLETED BY US OR VIA THE WEBSITE. You hereby waive any rights or requirements under any statutes, regulations, rules, orders, treaties, or other laws in any jurisdiction which require an original signature or delivery or retention of non-electronic records, or to payments or the granting of credits by any means other than electronic means.
- Customer Listing. The Company may include your name and other indicia in the Company's promotional and marketing materials identifying you as a customer of the Company.
- Relationship of the Parties. The Agreement does not create a partnership, joint venture, employment, agency, or fiduciary relationship between you and Narrator or any of Narrator's parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, or other related companies. Narrator and you are independent contractors and neither party will have the power to bind the other or to incur obligations on the other's behalf without the other party's prior written consent.
- No Third-Party Beneficiaries. The Agreement is intended for the sole benefit of the parties to the Agreement and their respective successors and permitted assigns, and nothing in the Agreement, express or implied, is intended to or shall confer upon any other person any legal or equitable right, benefit, or remedy of any nature whatsoever under or by reason of the Agreement.
- Assignment. You may not assign or transfer your rights or obligations under the Agreement without our prior written consent. Any purported assignment shall be null and void. We may assign the Agreement or transfer any rights or obligations hereunder at our sole discretion and without restriction.
- Waiver and Severability. No waiver by the Company of any term or condition set out in the Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of the Company to assert a right or provision under the Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized Narrator representative. If any provision of the Agreement is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction or an arbitrator to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be deemed revised so as to effectuate the intent of the parties to the maximum extent possible and the remaining provisions of the Agreement will continue in full force and effect.
- Interpretation. The headings used in the Agreement are included for convenience only and will not limit or otherwise affect the Agreement. Any ambiguities in the interpretation of the Agreement shall not be construed against the drafting party.
- Force Majeure. The Company shall not be liable for any failure or delay in its performance or equipment or any other matter due to causes beyond its reasonable control, including without limitation: acts of God, pandemic, fire, flood, hurricanes, or other catastrophes; any statute, regulation, rule, order, treaty, or other law or any direction, action, or request of any governmental entity or agency, or any civil or military authority; national emergencies, insurrections, riots, wars or hostile attacks; unavailability of rights-of-way or materials; or strikes, lock-outs, work stoppages, or other labor difficulties; equipment malfunction, power failures, denial-of-service attacks, or failure of the Internet (each, a "Force Majeure Event").
