12. BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
You and Megatrax agree to binding arbitration of any and all disputes between you and the Megatrax Parties, except for disputes relating to the enforcement of the intellectual property rights of the Megatrax Parties. "Dispute" includes any dispute, action or other controversy between you and Megatrax concerning the Site, the Content provided on the Site and/ or these Terms and Conditions, whether in contract, tort, warranty, statute or regulation, or other legal or equitable basis. You and Megatrax empower the arbitrator with the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability or enforceability of these terms or formation of these Terms and Conditions, including the arbitrability of any dispute and any claim that all or any part of these Terms and Conditions are void or voidable.
In the event of a dispute, you or Megatrax 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 7629 Fulton Avenue, North Hollywood, California 91605. We will send any notice of dispute to you at the contact information we have for you. You and Megatrax will attempt to resolve a dispute through informal negotiation within thirty (30) days from the date the notice of dispute is sent. After thirty (30) days, you or we may commence such arbitration.
If you and Megatrax do not resolve a dispute by informal negotiation, the dispute shall be settled 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. UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE IN THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY. Arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA") under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and its Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. For more information, visit www.adr.org or, in the United States, call 800-778-7879. Arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. 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.
PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE OR LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN ANY FORUM WILL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. Neither you nor the Megatrax Parties will seek to have a dispute heard as a class action, 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 arbitration or proceeding. If the class action waiver is found to be illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a dispute, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in binding arbitration.
If any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall be held void, voidable, invalid or inoperative, no other provision of these Terms and Conditions shall be affected as a result thereof and, accordingly, the remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions shall remain in full force and effect as though such void, voidable, invalid or inoperative provision has not been contained herein.
No modification, amendment, waiver, termination or discharge of these Terms and Conditions or provisions hereof shall be binding upon Megatrax, unless confirmed by a written instrument and signed by Megatrax. No waiver by Megatrax of any of these Terms and Conditions or provisions hereof or of any default hereunder shall affect the respective rights of Megatrax thereafter to enforce such term or provision or to exercise any right or remedy in the event of any other default, whether or not similar.
15. CHOICE OF LAW
This Agreement has been entered into in the State of California, and its validity, construction, interpretation and legal effect shall be governed solely by and under the laws of the State of California, applicable to contracts entered into and performed entirely within the State of California. You hereby consent, shall be subject to and shall submit to the jurisdiction of the Federal and state courts located in the County of Los Angeles, State of California, which courts shall have sole and exclusive jurisdiction thereof. You hereby waive any and all other jurisdiction, without limitation.
The provisions of these Terms and Conditions which by their nature should survive the termination of these Terms and Conditions shall survive such termination.
