You agree that the laws of the State of New York, USA, without regard to conflicts of laws principles, govern the existence and construction of these Terms and any dispute that may arise between you and SMS Audio, and that any dispute or claim arising out of or in relation to your access to or use of the Site or to products or services sold or distributed by SMS Audio or through the Site will be exclusively resolved by binding arbitration.
Arbitration will take place before a single arbitrator and will be administered by JAMS in accordance with the United States Arbitration Act and the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures then in effect, as modified by these Terms. Any in-person arbitration will take place in New York, New York. If the parties cannot agree upon the choice of an arbitrator within twenty (20) business days of the date the matter is submitted for arbitration, the parties shall request, and accept, assignment of an arbitrator from JAMS pursuant to its rules. The arbitrator shall have authority to award any remedy or relief that a court of competent jurisdiction in New York could grant in conformity to applicable law, subject to the limitations set forth in this Agreement. Any arbitration award shall be accompanied by a written statement containing a summary of the issues in controversy and a description of the award, with an explanation of the reasons for the award. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding, and judgment may be entered upon such award by any court of competent jurisdiction.
For more information, you may contact JAMS in writing at 620 Eighth Avenue, 34th Floor, New York, NY 10018, or visit their website at http://www.jamsadr.com/. Under JAMS rules, you also may have the right to take certain qualifying disputes to small claims court. Unless otherwise provided in JAMS rules or the arbitration award, you and SMS Audio will equally divide all administrative fees and expenses for any arbitration, including the arbitrator’s fees and expenses, and each party will bear the cost of preparing and presenting its own case. Each dispute will be arbitrated on an individual basis and will not be consolidated in any action with the disputes or claims of other consumers or customers. Any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms must be brought within two years of the date on which the basis for the dispute or claim first arises, or such longer period as may be required by law. If a claim proceeds in court rather than arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial. Notwithstanding this dispute resolution provision, SMS Audio shall have the right to seek and obtain preliminary injunctive or other provisional relief from a court of competent jurisdiction for the purpose of preventing irreparable injury, loss or damage pending a final resolution according to this dispute resolution provision.
