Except as provided in Section 15 below (and claims proceeding in any small claims court), all disputes arising out of or related to your use of the Nobotgames Services shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in the County of Los Angeles, California and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts. You are responsible for compliance with all local laws if and to the extent local laws are applicable.
(a) Arbitration Procedures. You and Nobotgames agree that, except as provided in Section (d) below, all disputes, controversies and claims related to this Agreement (each a “Claim”), shall be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration, which may be initiated by either party by sending a written notice requesting arbitration to the other party. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other. The arbitration will be conducted under the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (the “JAMS Rules”) and under the terms set forth in this Agreement. In the event of a conflict between the terms set forth in this Binding Arbitration Section and the JAMS Rules, the terms in this Binding Arbitration Section will control and prevail.
Except as otherwise set forth in Section (d) below, you may seek any remedies available to you under federal, state or local laws in an arbitration action. As part of the arbitration, both you and we will have the opportunity for discovery of non-privileged information that is relevant to the Claim. The arbitrator will provide a written statement of the arbitrator’s decision regarding the Claim, the award given and the arbitrator’s findings and conclusions on which the arbitrator’s decision is based. The determination of whether a Claim is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, (i) you and Nobotgames may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator; and (ii) the arbitrator’s decision shall be final, binding on all parties and enforceable in any court that has jurisdiction, provided that any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to follow applicable law.
BY AGREEING TO THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU AND NOBOTGAMES WAIVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL.
(b) Location. The arbitration will be conducted in the County of Los Angeles, California, unless the parties agree to video, phone and/or internet connection appearances.
(c) Limitations. You and Nobotgames agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Claim between Nobotgames and you individually. YOU AND NOBOTGAMES AGREE THAT (A) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS-ACTION BASIS OR TO UTILIZE CLASS ACTION PROCEDURES; (B) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL; AND (C) NO ARBITRATION SHALL BE JOINED WITH ANY OTHER ARBITRATION.
(d) Exceptions to Arbitration. You and Nobotgames agree that any Claim seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or Nobotgames’s intellectual property rights is not subject to the above provisions concerning negotiations and binding. In addition to the foregoing, either party may assert an individual action in small claims court for Claims that are within the scope of such court’s jurisdiction in lieu of arbitration.
(e) Arbitration Fees. If you initiate arbitration for a Claim, you will need to pay the JAMS arbitration initiation fee. If we are initiating arbitration for a Claim, we will pay all costs charged by JAMS for initiating the arbitration. All other fees and costs of the arbitration will be charged pursuant to the JAMS Rules.
(f) Severability. You and Nobotgames agree that if any portion this Section is found illegal or unenforceable (except any portion of Section (d)), that portion shall be severed and the remainder of the Section shall be given full force and effect. If Section (d) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither you nor Nobotgames will elect to arbitrate any Claim falling within that portion of Section (d) found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Claim shall be exclusively decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the County of Los Angeles, State of California, United States of America, and you and Nobotgames agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.

No Waiver. Our failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall in no way be construed to be a present or future waiver of such provision, nor in any way affect the right of any party to enforce each and every such provision thereafter. The express waiver by us of any provision, condition or requirement of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of any future obligation to comply with such provision, condition or requirement.
