Choice of Law
The laws of New York, USA, excluding New York’s conflict of laws rules, will apply to any and all disputes arising out or relating to the Services or this Agreement (“Disputes”).
Binding Individual Arbitration
You and Polish Pages each agree to exclusively arbitrate any and all Disputes. YOU AND POLISH PAGES AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE AGAINST THE OTHER MAY ONLY BE BROUGHT ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED, AND YOU ARE FOREGOING A JURY TRIAL AND WAIVING ANY RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AGAINST POLISH PAGES. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced (but in no case shall there be a class arbitration). All Disputes shall be resolved finally and exclusively by binding individual arbitration with a single arbitrator administered by the American Arbitration Association (www.adr.org) or JAMS (www.jamsadr.org) according to this provision and any applicable arbitration rules for expedited procedures for that forum. Consumer claimants (individuals whose use of the Services is intended for personal, family, or household use) may elect to pursue their claims in their local small-claims court rather than through arbitration. The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1–16, fully applies. If you are a consumer bringing a claim relating to personal, household, or family use, any arbitration hearing will occur within the county or parish where you reside. Otherwise, any arbitration hearing will occur in New York City, NY, or another mutually agreeable location. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. For any Dispute, you and Polish Pages will share equally the costs of the arbitration fees. If either party prevails on any claim for which such party is legally entitled to attorney’s fees, such party may recover those fees from the arbitrator. For purposes of this arbitration provision, references to you and Polish Pages also include respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors, successors and assigns as well as authorized users or beneficiaries of Polish Pages’ Services. Subject to and without waiver of the arbitration provisions above, you agree that any judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions in consumer cases) will be brought in and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state courts in the City and New York, New York, or federal court.
Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
