14 Dispute Resolution; Binding Arbitration
Please read the following section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with Skillzboard and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
Except for any dispute arising out of or related to a violation of Section 6 or disputes in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and Skillzboard waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms, our Services or Products purchased through our Services resolved in court. Instead, all disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms, our Services or Products purchased through our Services will be resolved through confidential binding arbitration held in New York, New York before and in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures ("Rules") of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services ("JAMS"), which are available on the JAMS website and hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the rules of JAMS or waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
You and Skillzboard agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms, our Services or Products purchased through the Services is personal to you and Skillzboard and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.
You and Skillzboard agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 14 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the "FAA"), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual. You and Skillzboard agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and Skillzboard will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Skillzboard, Skillzboard will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and Skillzboard agree that the state or federal courts of the State of New York and the United States sitting in New York County have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
Any claim you may have arising out of or related to these Terms, our Services or Products purchased through our Services must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, your claim is permanently barred, which means that you and Skillzboard will not have the right to assert the claim.
You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 14 by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org . In order to be effective, the opt out notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with Section 15.
15 Governing Law and Venue
These Terms and your access to and use of our Services, including to purchase Products, will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of Wisconsin, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of the State of Wisconsin or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction.
