YOU HEREBY AGREE THAT ANY MONETARY CLAIMS OF ANY KIND ASSESSED AGAINST US OR OUR DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, MEMBERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, PARTNERS, SUPPLIERS OR CONTENT PROVIDERS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE USE OF THE SITE SHALL NOT EXCEED (IN AGGREGATE) $500.

Indemnity

You agree to indemnify and hold harmless PCS, its parents, subsidiaries and affiliates and each of its and their respective officers, members, directors, agents, and employees, from and against any suit, action, claim, demand, penalty or loss, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by or resulting from any third party due to or arising out of your (or any third party using your account or identity in the Site) use or misuse of the Site, breach of these Terms of Use, the Privacy Policy or the materials it incorporates by reference, or violation of any law, regulation, order or other legal mandate or the rights of a third party. We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you agree to and will assist and cooperate with us in asserting any available defenses.

Choice of Law

You agree to resolve any claim, cause of action or dispute (together a “Claim”) you have with us arising out of or relating to your use of the Site, or our Terms of Use or our Privacy Policy exclusively in the state of New Jersey. You further agree that the laws of the state of New Jersey will govern our Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy Privacy Policy as well as any claim that may arise between you and us, without regard to conflict of law principles. In any dispute arising under the Terms of Use or the Privacy Policy, the prevailing party will be entitled to reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, provided that all arbitration fees are fronted 50/50 by each party.

Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

YOU AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US (WHETHER OR NOT SUCH DISPUTE INVOLVES A THIRD PARTY) WITH REGARD TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH US, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DISPUTES RELATED TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, OUR TRANSACTION POLICY, OUR PRIVACY POLICY, YOUR USE OF THE SITE, FEES OWED, AND/OR RIGHTS OF PRIVACY AND/OR PUBLICITY, WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION IN FLORIDA UNDER THE STREAMLINED ARBITRATION RULES AND PROCEDURES (“RULES”) OF JAMS THEN IN EFFECT, BY ONE COMMERCIAL ARBITRATOR WITH SUBSTANTIAL EXPERIENCE IN RESOLVING INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND COMMERCIAL CONTRACT DISPUTES, WHO SHALL BE SELECTED FROM THE APPROPRIATE LIST OF JAMS ARBITRATORS IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUCH RULES, AND YOU AND WE HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY. DISCOVERY AND RIGHTS TO APPEAL IN ARBITRATION ARE GENERALLY MORE LIMITED THAN IN A LAWSUIT, AND OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU AND WE WOULD HAVE IN COURT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.

As an alternative, you may bring your claim in your local “small claims” court, if permitted by that small claims court’s rules and if within such court’s jurisdiction, unless such action is transferred, removed or appealed to a different court. You may bring claims only on your own behalf. Neither you nor we will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement.

YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST US INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. YOU ALSO AGREE NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN CLAIMS BROUGHT IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL OR REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, OR CONSOLIDATED CLAIMS, IF WE ARE A PARTY TO THE PROCEEDING.

This section will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and not by any state law concerning arbitration. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with the Terms of Use.

You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of, related to or connected with the use of Site, the Terms of Use or the Privacy Policy must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or action arose or be forever banned.

If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this section will be null and void. This section will otherwise survive the termination of your relationship with us.
