GOVERNING LAW, ARBITRATION, VENUE, AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
A. Governing Law. You agree that subject to applicable law (which may include the Province of Quebec): (i) the Site shall be deemed solely based in California; and (ii) the Site shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California. Subject to applicable law (which may include the Province of Quebec), this Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. Subject to applicable law (which may include the Province of Quebec), you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the state courts located in Santa Cruz County, California and the Federal Courts located in Santa Clara County, California for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. Subject to applicable law (which may include the Province of Quebec), you agree that Santa Cruz County, California is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
B. Arbitration. READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES (EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WHICH MAY INCLUDE THE PROVINCE OF QUEBEC) THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM GOODER FOODS. For any dispute with Gooder Foods, you agree to first contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Gooder Foods has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree 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 this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in Santa Cruz County, California, unless you and Gooder Foods agree otherwise. If you are using the Site for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using the Site for non-commercial purposes: (i) JAMS may require you to pay a reduced and capped fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; and (ii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. 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 Gooder Foods 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.
C. Class Action Waiver. WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE SITE FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL OR OTHER PURPOSES, EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW (WHICH MAY INCLUDE THE PROVINCE OF QUEBEC), ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND GOODER FOODS ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.
D. Opt-out. You have the right to opt out of the arbitration and class action waiver provisions of these Terms by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address: email@example.com within thirty (30) days of first accepting these Terms. You must include (i) your name and residence address, (ii) the email address and/or telephone number associated with your account, and (iii) a clear statement that you want to opt out of these Terms’ arbitration agreement.
E. Exclusive Venue. If you send the opt-out notice in Section D, and/or in any circumstances where the foregoing arbitration agreement permits either you or Gooder Foods to litigate any dispute arising out of or relating to the subject matter of these Terms in court, then the foregoing arbitration agreement will not apply to either party, and both you and Gooder Foods agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will (except where prohibited by applicable law, which may include the Province of Quebec) be brought in the state or federal courts located in, respectively, Santa Cruz County, California, or the federal courts located in San Jose, California.
F. Modifications to this Arbitration Provision. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Messaging Terms, if Gooder Foods makes any future change to this arbitration provision, you may reject the change by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of the change and stating that you (include your first and last name) decline the change, in which case this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected, will continue to govern any disputes between you and Gooder Foods.

This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Gooder Foods without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
No waiver by Gooder Foods of any term or condition set forth in these Terms shall be effective unless in a writing signed by an authorized representative of Gooder Foods or be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition. Any failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver thereof or of any other provision.
This Agreement, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Gooder Foods in connection with the Site, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Gooder Foods concerning the Site. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect, except that in the event of unenforceability of the universal Class Action Waiver, the entire arbitration agreement shall be unenforceable.
The provisions of these Terms which by their nature should survive the termination of these Terms shall survive such termination.
