You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and the Company are each waiving the right to a trial by jury and the right to participate in a class or multi-party action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms and the termination of your use of the Site or opting out as described herein.

ii. You and the Company agree that (a) any claims seeking to enforce, protect, or determine the validity or ownership of any intellectual property rights, and (b) any claims related to allegations of theft, piracy or unauthorized use of the Site, Chosen Content and/or Content are not subject to mandatory arbitration. Instead, you and the Company agree that these claims (including but not limited to claims for injunctive or equitable relief) shall be exclusively decided by courts of competent jurisdiction in New York, New York, and that applicable Federal law shall govern, without regard to choice of law principles.
iii. You and the Company agree that each may bring claims against the other only in your or its individual capacity, and not as a class member or in any representative capacity or proceeding. Further, no arbitrator shall consolidate any other person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a multi-party or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable in any way, then the entirety of this arbitration section shall be null and void. The arbitrator may not award declaratory or injunctive relief.
iv. Any arbitration must be commenced by filing a demand for arbitration with the AAA within one year after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or reasonably should know of the act, omission or default giving rise to the claim; and there shall be no right to any remedy for any claim not asserted within that time period. If applicable law prohibits a one-year limitations period for asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period permitted by applicable law. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation will be limited to those fees set forth in the AAA's Consumer Rules with the remainder paid by the Company. Any arbitration costs or fees deemed “excessive” will be paid by the Company.
