  17. Governing Law; Arbitration

    This Agreement and its interpretation are governed by the laws of the State of California, U.S.A., without regard to principles of conflicts of law, and regardless of your location. All disputes arising out of or related to this Agreement or any aspect of the relationship between you and Posiba, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, must be commenced by you within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues otherwise such cause of action is permanently barred and unless within the jurisdiction of the small claims court, will be resolved through final and binding arbitration before a single neutral arbitrator instead of in a court by a judge or jury and you agree that Posiba and you are each waiving the right to trial by a jury. You agree that any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted and you are agreeing to give up the ability to participate in a class action. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules. The Consumer Arbitration Rules are available at: http://www.adr.org/consumer. The arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless the arbitrator determines upon request by you or by us that an in-person hearing is appropriate. Any in-person appearances will be held at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, such determination will be made by the American Arbitration Association or by the arbitrator. The arbitrator's decision will follow the terms of this Agreement and will be final and binding. The arbitrator will have authority to award temporary, interim or permanent injunctive relief or relief providing for specific performance of this Agreement, but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, nothing in this Agreement will preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state or local agencies and, if the law allows, they can seek relief against us for you.
