a. Governing Law
This Agreement shall be governed and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of New York without regard to conflict of laws principles thereof.
Any controversy or dispute arising out of this Agreement, the interpretation of any provision hereof, or the action or inaction of any party hereto shall be submitted to arbitration in New York County, New York in accordance with the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (as applicable) of the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA" rules). Either you or Cloister may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter by certified mail requesting arbitration and describing your claim to: art & eden, PBC_260 West 39th Street 10th Floor , New York, New York 10018. The arbitration shall be conducted by one (1) arbitrator either mutually agreed upon by the parties to this Agreement or, if the parties cannot agree within ten (10) days of notice to the respondent of commencement of the arbitration, then such arbitrator shall be chosen in accordance with the AAA rules. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879.
Either party also may, without waiving any remedy under this Agreement, seek any interim or provisional relief that is necessary to protect the rights or property of that party pending the establishment of the arbitral tribunal (or pending the arbitral tribunal's determination of the merits of the controversy) and for the purposes of seeking such interim relief both parties shall consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of any state or federal court of the State of New York, County of New York. The parties agree that the arbitrator shall have the power to award damages and injunctive relief. If a dispute shall arise under this Agreement, the substantially prevailing party shall be awarded reasonable attorney fees and costs in any suit, action or proceeding, including trial, arbitration, mediation, or appeal, as awarded by the court, arbiter or mediator.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Terms and Conditions of Use as a court would.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that notwithstanding the above, you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
Unless you and we agree otherwise, in the event that the Agreement to Arbitrate above is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute, you agree that any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and art & eden must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in New York County, State of New York. You and art & eden agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within New York County, State of New York for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.
