11. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
You agree that all matters relating to Your Access to or use of the Site, including all disputes, will be governed by the laws of the United States and by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Venue shall be proper only in Contra Costa County, California.
You agree to submit all disputes, claims or demands of any kind relating to or arising out of this Agreement (“Controversy”) to a three-step dispute resolution process. The three-step process shall (i) begin with informal negotiation conducted in good faith; (ii) be followed, if necessary, by mediation, initiated by written demand of one party served on the other, and if the mediator determines that the Controversy cannot be resolved by mediation or if either party, after good faith participation in the mediation, shall make written demand therefore, then; (iii) the Controversy shall be submitted to binding arbitration, conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator in accordance with the rules and regulations of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA Rules”); provided, however, in the event that the AAA Rules are not in compliance with applicable law, the parties hereby agree that the arbitrator shall modify the AAA Rules to the extent necessary to comply with applicable law and that the arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with such modified rules; provided, further, in the event that there is a conflict between the AAA Rules and this Section, this Section, and not the AAA Rules, shall be followed by the arbitrator.
You and Devil Mountain will mutually select the arbitrator. If the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator, then the arbitrator shall be appointed by the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator shall be experienced with respect to the type of dispute hereunder. Upon selection, the arbitrator shall set an appropriate time, date and place for the arbitration, after conferring with the parties to the dispute. The provisions of Section 1283.05 of the California Code of Civil Procedure shall be adopted and used with respect to the conduct of discovery prior to the arbitration.
The arbitrator may award any form of equitable or legal relief that the party could recover in a court action, including, but not limited to, interim awards, provisional remedies, temporary injunctive relief, orders for specific performance, declaratory relief or damages. The arbitrator may condition any interim awards or provisional remedies or relief on the provision of appropriate security by the party seeking such relief. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a party who is in need of, but unable to obtain, an interim or provisional remedy or relief from the arbitrator may seek from a court any interim or provisional remedy or relief that is necessary to protect the rights or property of that party. The court shall grant or deny the requested interim or provisional remedy and shall thereafter stay the prosecution of such party’s underlying claims on which any interim or provisional remedy or relief is based pending completion of mediation or arbitration of the underlying claims. A request for an interim award or provisional remedy or relief addressed by a party to the court shall not be deemed incompatible with this Agreement to arbitrate, nor constitute a waiver of the right to arbitrate.
The arbitrator shall issue a written opinion and award setting forth the legal principles and conclusions of law and fact that support each part of the opinion. Any party may apply to any court of general jurisdiction for entry and enforcement of judgment based on the arbitration award.
The prevailing party in any action brought pursuant to this Section shall be entitled to recover its attorneys’ fees and costs, including, without limitation, discovery costs, witness fees, expert fees and any other expenses related to the preparation and presentation of proof.
You acknowledge that by execution of this Agreement, You are waiving Your rights to proceed with a court action (except as expressly provided herein with respect to interim or provisional remedies) or a jury trial.
12. CLASS ACTION WAIVER
With respect to any dispute with Devil Mountain or its suppliers or licensors arising out of or relating to Your use of the Site, You hereby give up Your right to serve as a representative, as a private attorney general, or in any other representative capacity, or to participate as a member of a class of claimants, in any lawsuit involving such dispute.
13. MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS
13.1 Waiver. The failure of Devil Mountain to partially or fully exercise any rights or remedies that may be available to it, or the waiver of the Devil Mountain of any breach of this Agreement by You shall not prevent a subsequent exercise of such rights by Devil Mountain and shall not be deemed a waiver by Devil Mountain of any subsequent breach by You of the same or any other provision of this Agreement. Devil Mountain rights and remedies under this Agreement and any other applicable agreement between You and Devil Mountain shall be cumulative, and the exercise of any such right or remedy shall not limit Devil Mountain’s ability to exercise a different or additional right or remedy.
13.2 Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement of the parties with respect to this subject matter and Your use of the Site. There are no verbal or written collateral representations, agreements or understandings relevant to this subject matter except as specifically set forth in this Agreement.
13.3 Survival. If any provision of this Agreement in its current form or as may be amended is found to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, only the invalid portion of the provision shall be severed and the remaining terms, conditions and provisions of the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect. The severed provision, or portion thereof, shall be reformed to reflect the purpose of the provision as closely as possible.
