17. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND JURY TRIAL WAIVER, CLASS ACTION WAIVER, AND FORUM SELECTION CLAUSE.
17.1. You agree that any and all controversies, disputes, demands, counts, claims, or causes of action(including the interpretation and scope of this clause, and the arbitrability of the controversy, dispute, demand, count, claim, or cause of action) between you and the Plannery Parties or their successors or assigns will exclusively be settled through binding and confidential arbitration.
17.2. Arbitration will be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and not any state or provincial/territorial arbitration law. The arbitration will be conducted before one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving commercial contract disputes from the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). As modified by these Terms, and unless otherwise agreed upon by the parties in writing, the arbitration will be governed by the AAA’sCommercial Arbitration Rules and, if the arbitrator deems them applicable, theSupplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, the “Rules and Procedures”).
17.3. In the case of arbitration and where permitted by law, you are thus agreeing to GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GOTO COURT to assert or defend your rights EXCEPT for matters that you file in small claims court. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR andNOT a judge or jury. You are entitled to a FAIR HEARING, BUT the arbitration procedures are SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT.Arbitrator decisions are as enforceable as any court order and are subject toVERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT.
17.4. In the case of arbitration and where permitted by law, you and Plannery must abide by the following rules:(1) ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT BY YOU OR PLANNERY MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING; (2) THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF ARE PRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, AND MAY NOT AWARD CLASS-WIDE RELIEF; (3) in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, Plannery will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation; (4) Plannery also reserves the right inits sole and exclusive discretion to assume responsibility for all of the costs of the arbitration; (5) the arbitrator will honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law; (6) the arbitration will be confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award; (7) the arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are permitted by applicable law; and (8) each side pays its own attorneys’ fees and expenses unless there is a statutory provision that requires the prevailing party to be paid its fees and litigation expenses, and, in such instance, the fees and costs awarded will be determined by the applicable law.
17.5. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or Plannery may bring an individual action in small claims court. Further, claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret will not be subject to this arbitration agreement. Such claims will be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts located in the County of San Mateo, California. Additionally, notwithstanding this agreement to arbitrate, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before the state or federal courts located in the County ofSan Mateo, California, in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration, and hereby agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts located within the County of San Mateo, California, for such purpose. A request for interim measures will not be deemed a waiver of the right to arbitrate.
17.6. With the exception of Section17.4(1) and (2)(prohibiting arbitration on a class or collective basis), if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures, then the balance of this arbitration provision will remain in effect and will be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting part was not contained herein. If, however, either Section 17.4(1)or (2) is found to be invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision will be null and void, and neither you nor Plannery will be entitled to arbitration. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration (including any claims brought by parties outside the United States or Canada), the dispute will be exclusively brought in state or federal court located in the County of San Mateo, California.
18. Choice of Law.
These Terms are made underand will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, U.S.A., consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act (to the extent permitted by applicable law), without giving effect to any principles that provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction. You may also be entitled to certain consumerprotection rights under the laws of your local jurisdiction and/or country of residency.
