If any applicable authority holds any portion of this section to be unenforceable, then the eno parties’ liability will be limited to the fullest possible extent permitted by applicable law.
11. Agreement to Arbitrate.
11.1 Except for statutory or common law claims related to intellectual property and disputes that qualify for small claims court, any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, will be resolved by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any federal or state court of competent jurisdiction located in Washington, DC. For more information about arbitration, the AAA, and the arbitration process, please consult the American Arbitration Association web site at adr.org. You agree that by entering into this Agreement, you and we are each waiving the right to trial by jury, except as otherwise stated above. Any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted and, by entering into this Agreement, you are giving up the ability to participate in a class action. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except the issues relating to the scope, application, and enforceability of the arbitration provision that are for the court to decide. As stated in Section 12 below, DC law applies to any arbitration under this section, but the parties acknowledge that the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This agreement to arbitrate shall survive termination of this Agreement. This arbitration agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, and, if the law allows, they can seek relief against us for you.
11.2 Unless you and we agree otherwise, the arbitration will take place in Washington, DC. You and we may agree that the arbitration shall be carried out based only on documents submitted to the arbitrator, or by a hearing in person, or by phone.
11.3 The arbitrator may award money or equitable relief in favor of only the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. To reduce the time and expense of the arbitration, the arbitrator will not provide a statement of reasons for his or her award unless requested to do so by both parties. Unless both you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
12. General. This Agreement contains the final and entire agreement between us regarding your use of any Service and supersedes all previous and contemporaneous oral or written agreements regarding your use of the Service. We may discontinue or change any Service or its availability to you, at any time. This Agreement is personal to you, which means that you may not assign your rights or obligations under this Agreement to anyone. No third party is a beneficiary of this Agreement. You agree that this Agreement, as well as any and all claims arising from this Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Washington, DC, without regard to any conflict or choice of law principles. For all litigation which may be brought, subject to the requirements for arbitration hereunder, with respect to any controversy or claim, arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any relationship between us, the sole jurisdiction and venue for such litigation will be an appropriate federal or state court located in Washington, DC. Our failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement or to respond to a breach of this Agreement by you or other parties shall not in any way waive our rights to subsequently enforce any term or condition of this Agreement.
