Choice of Law
The Sites and Services and your use hereof are governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to California’s choice of law provisions. Any claim arising out of your use of the Sites or Services must be brought in San Francisco, California.
For any dispute with The Assembly, you agree to first contact us email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that The Assembly has not been able to resolve a dispute after sixty (60) days, each party agrees to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules. The arbitration will be conducted in San Francisco, California, unless you and The Assembly agree otherwise. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this section shall be deemed as preventing The Assembly from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, intellectual property rights, or other proprietary rights.
You agree that, by entering into these Terms, you and The Assembly are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or other representative proceeding of any kind. With respect to all persons and entities, regardless of whether they have obtained or used the Services or Sites for personal, commercial, or other purposes, all claims must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity, and, unless The Assembly agrees otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims.
Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void. These Terms, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with The Assembly in connection with the Sites and Serices, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and The Assembly concerning the Sites. If any provision of these Terms is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which shall remain in full force and effect, except that in the event of unenforceability of the universal jury trial waiver, the entire arbitration agreement shall be unenforceable. No waiver of any term of these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and The Assembly’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. The headings in these Terms are for reference only and shall not affect the interpretation of these Terms.
