Dispute Resolution, Jurisdiction, and Choice of Law

Any dispute concerning these Terms, the Website, any purchase of products or services from us, our products, services, advertising, copyrights, trademarks, or patents, or any other dispute between you and us shall be resolved in small claims court in Los Angeles County (if within the then applicable small claims court jurisdictional limits) and otherwise by binding arbitration before one arbitrator (when no party’s claim or counterclaim at the time of filing exceeds $25,000 or involves any equitable claim or demand for injunctive relief, and otherwise before a panel of three arbitrators)  in Los Angeles County, California.  You hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to this jurisdiction and further agree that the laws of California (except conflict of law provisions) and of the United States shall apply to any such or small claims court or arbitration proceeding.  The party initiating the proceeding shall initially pay for the costs of suit or arbitration, and each party shall initially bear its own attorney fees and costs; however, the parties irrevocably covenant and agree that they shall request at the outset that the court or arbitrator determine the prevailing party and award costs and attorneys fees accordingly at the conclusion of the case or arbitration, in accordance with these Terms.  The judgment of the arbitrator(s) shall be final, binding, and non-appealable, and may be entered as a judgment by any party in any court of competent jurisdiction.  Nothing herein shall be deemed to restrict or prohibit any court proceeding to compel arbitration, clarify rights and obligations regarding arbitration, or for preliminary injunctive relief.
