By virtue of this Arbitration Agreement (defined below), you and Deeper Network are each giving up the right to go to court and have a Dispute heard by a judge or jury (except as otherwise set forth in this “DISPUTE RESOLUTION – MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER” Section). The provisions of this “DISPUTE RESOLUTION – MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER” Section shall constitute your and Deeper Network’s written agreement to arbitrate Disputes under the Federal Arbitration Act (“Arbitration Agreement”). Any modification to this Arbitration Agreement, to be effective, must be in writing and signed by you and Deeper Network. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and conducted before a single arbitrator pursuant to its rules.

If the arbitrator grants the request or determines an in-person hearing is necessary, the hearing will proceed in Santa Clara, California, unless the arbitrator determines or we agree that the matter should proceed in the county in which you reside (which county must be in the continental United States of America).
No Class Action Matters
We each agree that we shall bring any Dispute against the other in our respective individual capacities and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, consolidated or representative proceeding or as an association. In addition, we each agree that Disputes shall be arbitrated only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. The arbitrator shall not have the power to vary these provisions.
Choice of Law and Forum; No Jury Trial
If for any reason a Dispute proceeds in court: (a) you agree that any such Dispute may only be instituted in a state or federal court of competent subject matter jurisdiction located in Delaware (b) you and Deeper Network irrevocably consent and submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for resolution of such Disputes, stipulate to the fairness and convenience of such courts and covenant not to assert any objection to proceeding in such courts; (c) you and Deeper Network agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, the AAA rules, applicable federal law and the laws of the state of Delaware, without regard to principles of conflicts of law, will govern this Agreement and any Disputes; and (d) you and Deeper Network agree to waive any right to a trial by jury or judge.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, either party may bring suit in court seeking an injunction or other equitable relief arising out of or relating to the infringement of a party’s intellectual property or any conduct that violates the “Intellectual Property Rights” section of the Terms and Conditions of Use.
If either of us wants to assert a Dispute against the other, the party with a Dispute must initiate arbitration within one (1) year from the date the Dispute arose. Absent commencing the arbitration within one (1) year from the date the Dispute arose, the Dispute(s) will be forever barred.
