Governing Law and Dispute Resolution
These Terms and any disputes, claims, or controversies that result from your purchase or use of the Game shall be governed by and construed solely and exclusively in accordance with the internal laws of the State of New York without giving effect to any law that would result in the application of the law of another jurisdiction and shall be considered to have been entered into and executed in New York, New York. You expressly agree that you consent to jurisdiction in New York, New York and waive any defenses concerning personal jurisdiction, improper venue, and inconvenient forum.
YOU AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTES, CLAIMS OR CONTROVERSIES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE GAME AND/OR THESE TERMS (“CLAIMS”) SHALL BE SUBMITTED FOR INDIVIDUAL, FINAL, AND BINDING ARBITRATION BY JAMS OR ITS SUCCESSOR IN NEW YORK, NEW YORK. The Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) governs application and interpretation of this arbitration provision and any question as to the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, shall be determined by arbitration. In the event of any Claim, you explicitly waive any requirements for or rights to foreign service of process under the Hague Service Convention or other applicable law or treaty and expressly acknowledge that this mutual agreement to arbitrate means limits on pre-hearing discovery and a waiver of a right to a jury trial as well as a waiver of the right to participate in any class action lawsuits, class-wide arbitrations, private attorney-general actions, any action combining individual proceedings without the consent of all parties, and any other proceeding where someone acts in a representative capacity. Judgment on any award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall, in the award, allocate all or part of the costs of the arbitration, including the fees of the arbitrator and the reasonable attorneys’ fees of the prevailing party, plus interest at the rate authorized by law, to the non-prevailing party. You waive any objection which you may have now or hereafter to the laying of venue in New York or the exclusive jurisdiction of JAMS over you. Any Claim brought by you against us or our affiliates must be instituted within one year after the Claim arises or be deemed forever waived and barred.
If you are not a United States domiciliary and if the foregoing provision is unenforceable pursuant to the governing law of your jurisdiction, then the terms of the foregoing provision shall be applicable herein to the fullest extent permissible by law, and any dispute arising from your use of the Game and/or these Terms will be finally settled by arbitration under the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce then in effect, by one arbitrator appointed in accordance with such Rules, and such arbitration shall be the exclusive method to settle any such dispute. The arbitration award, as well as any other decision of the arbitrator (including any conservative or interim measures), shall be final, non-appealable, binding and executory. The arbitration shall be conducted in the English language and it shall have its seat in New York, New York, USA. Judgment on the arbitrator’s decision may be entered in, and enforced by, any court having jurisdiction over the party against which an award is entered or over such party’s assets, and the parties hereby irrevocably waive any defense and any objection to the exercise of jurisdiction by such courts, based on international comity, improper venue or forum non-conveniens.
In the event that any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable to any extent, that portion shall be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the intent of the original provision, and all the other Terms shall remain in full force and effect. Any failure by us to enforce or exercise any provision of these Terms or related rights shall not constitute a waiver of that right or provision. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us regarding purchase and use of the Game. The section headings are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
