The exclusive means of resolving any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms (including any alleged breach thereof) or the Services shall be BINDING ARBITRATION administered by the American Arbitration Association. The number of arbitrators shall be one. The seat, or legal place, of arbitration and the governing law shall be New York County in the State of New York. The language to be used in the arbitral proceedings shall be English.
The one exception to the exclusivity of arbitration is that either party has the right to bring an individual claim against the other in a small-claims court of competent jurisdiction or, if filed in arbitration, the responding party may request that the dispute proceed in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction if the party’s claim is eligible for a small claims proceeding. If the responding party requests to proceed in small claims court before the appointment of the arbitrator, the arbitration shall be administratively closed, and if requested after the appointment of the arbitrator, the arbitrator shall determine if the dispute should be decided in arbitration or if the arbitration should be administratively closed and decided through a small claims court proceeding. Whether you choose arbitration or small-claims court, you may not under any circumstances commence or maintain against the Company any class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding.
By using the Services in any manner, you agree to the above arbitration agreement. In doing so, YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend any claims between you and the Company (except for matters that may be undertaken through small claims court). YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER CLASS PROCEEDING. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR, NOT A JUDGE OR JURY, and the arbitrator shall determine all issues regarding the arbitrability of the dispute. You are entitled to a fair hearing before the arbitrator. The arbitrator can grant any relief that a court can, but you should note that arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons. Any proceeding to enforce this arbitration agreement, including any proceeding to confirm, modify, or vacate an arbitration award, may be commenced in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that this arbitration agreement is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against the Company (except for small-claims court proceedings) may be commenced only in the courts of New York. You hereby irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes.
Governing Law. The laws of New York, without regard to conflict of laws principles, shall govern all matters relating to or arising from these Terms, and the use (or inability to use) the Services.

If any provision of these Terms shall be found unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
