Governing Law and Jurisdiction: These Terms, and all disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or the use of the Sites or the Content, are subject to the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. The state and federal courts located in the Southern District of California shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any lawsuits filed arising from these Terms or the use of the Sites or the Content, to the extent the claims in any such lawsuit are not subject to arbitration pursuant to these Terms, as discussed below.
Arbitration: Pregistry agrees to binding arbitration should it have any dispute with you. Likewise, you agree to binding arbitration should you have any dispute with Pregistry. A dispute includes any and all claims that relate in any way to, without limitation, your use of the Site, the Content, or the use or attempted use of any products or services available through the Site or any third party through the Site. This agreement to arbitrate, and the terms that discuss arbitration, are referred to as the “arbitration” provisions. BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATE, YOU WAIVE THE RIGHT TO HAVE YOUR CLAIMS AGAINST PREGISTRY DECIDED BY A COURT OR JURY. The arbitration provisions set forth the terms and conditions of our agreement to binding arbitration. These provisions are governed by and enforceable under the Federal Arbitration Act (the “FAA”) 9 U.S.C. § 1-16, as amended.
Mandatory Pre-Dispute Procedures: You agree that, before initiating any arbitration against Pregistry, you will first give Pregistry an opportunity to resolve your problem or dispute. This includes sending a written description of your problem or dispute to us with sufficient detail to allow us to try to address the problem or dispute. You may send the written description by U.S. mail to 1801 Century Park East, 25th Floor, Los Angeles, CA 90067. You agree to negotiate with Pregistry in good faith regarding your problem or dispute. If for some reason your problem or dispute is not resolved to your satisfaction within sixty (60) days after Pregistry’s receipt of your written dispute, you may proceed to arbitration.
Time Limitations: You and Pregistry agree to commence any arbitration proceedings within one (1) year after the dispute arises (including the mandatory pre-arbitration procedure outlined above) and that any proceeding regarding any dispute commenced after one (1) year shall be barred. This provision operates as a statute of limitations with respect to any dispute arising from or in connection with the use of Pregistry.
Arbitration Details and Rules: The arbitration will be conducted in the City of Los Angeles. It may be held by telephone or through written submissions if both you and Pregistry agree. The arbitrator shall have the discretion to select another venue if the arbitrator finds that the City of Los Angeles will be unreasonably burdensome to you, even taking into account the option of holding the arbitration by telephone or written submissions. The dispute shall be submitted to final and binding confidential arbitration before a single arbitrator who is a retired judge or an experienced attorney with experience in the subject(s) of the dispute. The arbitrator shall be chosen from JAMS, and the JAMS commercial arbitration rules then in effect shall apply. They can be obtained by calling JAMS. The arbitrator shall have the exclusive and sole authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, construction, validity, applicability, or enforceability of these Terms and this arbitration provision. The arbitrator shall have the exclusive and sole authority to determine whether this arbitration agreement can be enforced against a non-signatory to this agreement and whether a non-signatory to this agreement can enforce this provision against you or Pregistry.
Pregistry shall pay for all filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees for an arbitration initiated by either party. The parties shall each pay their own additional fees, costs, and expenses, including, but not limited to, those for any attorneys, experts, documents, and witnesses.
Arbitration Award: The arbitrator may award any form of individual relief, including injunctions and punitive damages, as long as they are in accordance with applicable law. The arbitrator may award costs or fees to a prevailing party, but only if the law expressly allows it. Nothing in these Terms shall be construed to limit the arbitrator’s ability to award remedies provided by applicable law. Any award rendered shall include a written opinion and shall be final, subject to appeal under the FAA. As an exception to binding arbitration, you and Pregistry both retain the right to pursue, in a small claims court, any claim that is within that court’s jurisdiction and proceeds on an individual (non-class) basis.
Pregistry reserves the right to amend this arbitration provision at any time. Your continued use of Pregistry is affirmation of your consent to such changes. Should the changes to this arbitration provision be material, Pregistry will provide you with notice and an opportunity to opt-out. Your continued use of Pregistry without opting out is affirmation of your consent to such material changes. If any portion of these arbitration provisions is deemed unenforceable, the remaining portions of the arbitration provision shall remain in full force and effect.
Opt-Out: YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OPT-OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROVISIONS WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS FROM THE DATE OF FIRST USE OR ATTEMPTED USE OF THE SITES BY WRITING TO 1801 Century Park East, 25th Floor, Los Angeles, CA 90067. FOR YOUR OPT-OUT TO BE EFFECTIVE, YOU MUST SUBMIT A SIGNED WRITTEN NOTICE IDENTIFYING YOUR USE OR ATTEMPTED USE WITHIN THE 30 DAYS AND THE DATE YOU FIRST USED OR ATTEMPTED TO USE THE SITES. UNTIMELY OPT-OUTS WILL NOT BE VALID.
No Class Actions: To the fullest extent allowed by law, you agree not to act as a representative for any class of individuals or participate as a member in any class or collective action filed in connection with any claims that are asserted against Pregistry. If this class action waiver is deemed unenforceable (i.e., unenforceability would allow arbitration to proceed as a class or representative action), then the entire arbitration provision shall be rendered null and void and shall not apply.
Miscellaneous Terms: These Terms are the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Pregistry, LLC and you regarding Pregistry, the Site and the Content. Other than as specifically indicated, if a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions will remain in full force and effect. You may not assign these Terms without our prior written consent, and any attempt to do so will be null. We may assign these Terms without restriction.
