22.3 Dispute Resolution.
(a) Choice of Law. These Terms shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. EACH PARTY IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL ACTION, PROCEEDING, CAUSE OF ACTION OR COUNTERCLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO ANY CLAIM OR OTHERWISE IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS, APPLICATIONS OR THE SITE.
(b) Arbitration and Class Action Waiver. PLEASE REVIEW AS THIS AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.
(i) ARBITRATION. YOU AGREE THAT ALL CLAIMS BETWEEN YOU AND Hotpoint Media (WHETHER OR NOT SUCH CLAIM INVOLVES A THIRD PARTY) IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS, THE SITE, THE APPLICATIONS, THE Marketing Services AND THE OTHER Hotpoint Media SERVICES INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, YOUR RIGHTS OF PRIVACY AND ANY PRODUCTS WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION UNDER THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION'S RULES FOR ARBITRATION OF CONSUMER-RELATED DISPUTES AND YOU AND Hotpoint Media HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY. DISCOVERY AND RIGHTS TO APPEAL IN ARBITRATION ARE GENERALLY MORE LIMITED THAN IN A LAWSUIT, AND OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU AND Hotpoint Media WOULD HAVE IN COURT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. YOU MAY bring claims only on your own behalf.
Neither you nor Hotpoint Media will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement to arbitrate. YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST Hotpoint Media INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person's account, if Hotpoint Media is a party to the proceeding.
This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and not by any state law concerning arbitration. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms.
(ii) Judicial Forum for Disputes. In the event that the agreement to arbitrate under Section 22.3(b) is found not to apply to you or your claim, you and Hotpoint Media agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) must be brought solely and exclusively in, and will be subject to the Hotpoint Media Service of process and other applicable procedural rules of, the federal or state courts of Travis County, TX. Both you and Hotpoint Media irrevocably consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Hotpoint Media may bring a claim for equitable relief in any court with proper jurisdiction.
(iii) This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your use of the Site, the Applications, the Products, the Marketing Services or any of the other Hotpoint Media Services or your relationship with Hotpoint Media.
(c) Improperly Filed Claims. All claims you bring against Hotpoint Media must be resolved in accordance with this Section 22.3. All claims filed or brought contrary to this Section 22.3 shall be considered improperly filed. Should you file a claim contrary to this Section 22.3, Hotpoint Media may recover attorneys’ fees and costs up to $10,000.00, provided that Hotpoint Media has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.
If any provision of these Terms (including any Policies) is held to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be limited or eliminated from these Terms to the minimum extent necessary and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
These Terms and related Policies, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Hotpoint Media without restriction. Any assignment attempted to be made in violation of these Terms shall be void.
Upon termination of these Terms, your use of any of the Hotpoint Media Services or your relationship with Hotpoint Media, any provision which, by its nature or express terms should survive, will survive such termination or expiration, including, but not limited to, Sections 1, 2, and 8 - 22.
