Dispute Resolution

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH PSW AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.

By using the Site, you hereby agree that all claims relating to your access or use of the Site, including all disputes arising out of, or related to any products or services purchase through the Site, will be resolved entirely through binding individual arbitration, rather than in court. You may assert individual claims in small claims court if such claim is within such small claims court's authority. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.

BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO SUE OR GO TO COURT TO ASSERT OR DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT. THIS SECTION LIMITS CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM, THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN AAA, AND THE RIGHT TO CERTAIN REMEDIES AND FORMS OF RELIEF. RIGHTS THAT YOU OR PSW MAY HAVE IN COURT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a demand to the American Arbitration Association describing your claim and serve a copy of the demand on PSW registered agent: Corporation Service Company, 251 Little Falls Drive, Wilmington, DE 19808. The arbitration will be conducted by AAA under its rules, including AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. You can contact AAA to find out more information on how to commence an arbitration proceeding. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by AAA applicable rules. PSW will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000, unless the arbitrator determines your claims are frivolous. Likewise, PSW will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determine the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.

We each agree to bring any dispute in arbitration on an individual basis only, and not on a class, consolidated, representative or collective action basis. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial or to participate in a class action against the other. In addition, we both agree that we each may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.

Applicable Law

The law applicable to the interpretation and construction of these Terms of Use and any transaction (including purchases made on the Site) using or related to the Site, shall be the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal laws and the laws of the State of Arizona, without regard to principles of conflict of law, but subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and other federal law relating to the arbitrability of claims.
