15. BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
These BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER provisions apply to you if you are domiciled in and/or access, download and use our Services in the United States. This Section is made pursuant to a transaction in interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (the "FAA").
You and To Know Me agree that we will resolve any disputes between us through binding and final arbitration instead of through court proceedings. You and To Know Me hereby waive any right to a jury trial of any Claim (defined below). All controversies, claims, counterclaims, or other disputes arising between you and To Know Me relating to or arising from these Terms, the Site, Services or any Content (each a "Claim") shall be submitted for binding arbitration. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its rules and procedures ("AAA Rules") including the AAA's Consumer Arbitration Rules. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
Arbitration Procedures: The arbitration will be heard and determined by a single arbitrator. The arbitrator must be a lawyer with at least 10 years of experience or a retired judge. The arbitration hearing shall be held in New York County, New York. However, if you reside in a state other than New York, you will offer To Know Me the opportunity to make the hearing convenient to you by permitting To Know Me to select to: (a) conduct the hearing solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, with the parties participating through telephonic or video conference hearings; or (b) arbitrate in your state of residence at a location reasonably convenient to you and To Know Me. In addition, in cases where an in-person hearing is held, you and/or To Know Me may attend by telephone, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.
The arbitrator's decision in any such arbitration will be final and binding upon the parties, except for a limited right of review as provided in the FAA. Judgment upon the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The parties agree that the arbitration will be kept confidential and that the existence of the proceeding and any element of it (including, without limitation, any pleadings, briefs or other documents submitted or exchanged and any testimony or other oral submissions and awards) will not be disclosed beyond the arbitration proceedings, except as may lawfully be required in judicial proceedings relating to the arbitration or by applicable disclosure rules and regulations of securities regulatory authorities or other governmental agencies.
Costs. If you demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, To Know Me will pay as much of the administrative costs and arbitrator's fees required for the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the cost of the arbitration from being prohibitive. In the final award, the arbitrator may apportion the costs of arbitration and the compensation of the arbitrator among the parties in such amounts as the arbitrator deems appropriate. Each party shall bear the expense of that party's attorneys, experts, and witnesses, regardless of which party prevails in the arbitration, unless applicable law gives a party the right to recover any of those fees from the other party.
Class Action Waiver: Neither you nor To Know Me may act as a class representative or private attorney general, nor participate as a member of a class of claimants, with respect to any Claim. Claims may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, and there should also be no joinder or consolidation of parties. The arbitrator can decide only your and/or To Know Me’s individual Claims. The arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated.
If any portion of this Section is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then that specific portion shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed, but the remainder of this Section shall continue in full force and effect; provided however, that if the Class Action Waiver is deemed invalid, then this entire Section shall be null and void. No waiver of any provision of this Section of the Terms will be effective or enforceable unless recorded in a writing signed by the party waiving such a right or requirement. Such a waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of these Terms. This Section of the Terms will survive the termination of your relationship with To Know Me.
Small Claims; Action by Government Agencies: This arbitration agreement does not preclude you or To Know Me from seeking action by federal, state, or local government agencies. You and To Know Me also have the right to bring qualifying claims in small claims court. In addition, you and To Know Me retain the right to apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for provisional relief, including pre-arbitral attachments or preliminary injunctions, and any such request shall not be deemed incompatible with these Terms, nor a waiver of the right to have disputes submitted to arbitration as provided in these Terms.
THIS SECTION LIMITS CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM, THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN AAA RULES, AND THE RIGHT TO CERTAIN REMEDIES AND FORMS OF RELIEF. THE ARBITRATOR'S DECISION WILL BE FINAL AND BINDING EXCEPT FOR A LIMITED RIGHT TO REVIEW AS PROVIDED IN THE FAA. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU OR TO KNOW ME WOULD HAVE IN COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.
16. APPLICABLE LAW AND JURISDICTION
These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with United States federal law and the laws of the State of New York for residents of the United States, without giving effect to any conflict of laws, rules or provisions.
If any court or arbitrator determines that the "BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER" section set forth above is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class action basis, then you and we irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of state or federal courts in New York County, New York to resolve any Claims that are permitted to proceed on a class action basis, or otherwise determined not to be arbitrable. You consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of any such action.
17. OTHER PROVISIONS
Under no circumstances will we be held liable for any delay or failure in performance due in whole or in part to any acts of nature or other causes beyond our reasonable control.
If any provision of these Terms is found to be unlawful or unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the enforceability of any other provisions.
The failure by us to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not prevent us from enforcing such right or provision in the future.
