20. Binding arbitration and class action waiver
20.1. The BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER provisions in this clause 20 apply to all Disputes between you and Winkel Limited and its subsidiaries and Affiliates relating to the App. This clause also applies to any Dispute between you and any Winkel Limited Affiliates, each of which is an intended third-party beneficiary of this clause 20.
20.2. For the purposes of this clause, “Affiliate” shall mean any entity controlling, controlled by or under common control with Winkel Limited, where ‘control’ means the direct or indirect ownership of more than fifty percent (50%) of such entity’s capital or equivalent voting rights and “Dispute” shall include any dispute, claim, controversy or action between you and Winkel Limited (or any Winkel Limited Affiliates) arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the App, or any other transaction involving you and Winkel Limited, whether in contract, warranty, misrepresentation, fraud, tort, intentional tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, or any other legal or equitable basis.
20.3. Initial Dispute Resolution: if you have any concerns or queries regarding our App, please contact us by e-mail. Most concerns are quickly resolved in this manner to our customers' satisfaction. The parties shall use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
20.4. Binding Arbitration: if the parties do not reach an agreed upon solution within a period of 30 days from the time informal dispute resolution is pursued pursuant to clause 20.3, then the parties agree that all Disputes shall be resolved by binding arbitration according to this Agreement. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JUDGE OR JURY IN A COURT PROCEEDING AND YOUR GROUNDS FOR APPEAL ARE LIMITED. Under this Agreement, binding arbitration shall be administered by JAMS, a nationally recognized arbitration authority, under its procedures then in effect for consumer related disputes, but excluding any rules that permit joinder or class actions in arbitration (for more detail on procedure, see clause 20.5 below). The parties understand and agree that (a) the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §1, et seq.) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this clause 20, (b) this Agreement memorialises a transaction in interstate commerce, and (c) this clause 20 shall survive termination of this Agreement.
20.5. Arbitration Procedure: if any of the parties commences arbitration, the arbitration shall be governed by the rules of JAMS that are in effect when the arbitration is filed, excluding any rules that permit arbitration on a class or representative basis (the “JAMS Rules”), available at http://www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-5267, and under the rules set forth in this Agreement. All Disputes shall be resolved by a single neutral arbitrator, and both parties shall have a reasonable opportunity to participate in the selection of the arbitrator. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement and must follow applicable law. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable. Notwithstanding this broad delegation of authority to the arbitrator, a court may determine the limited question of whether a claim or cause of action is excluded from arbitration under clause 20.7. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. In some instances, the costs of arbitration can exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court. The arbitrator’s award is binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. You may choose to engage in arbitration hearings by telephone. Arbitration hearings not conducted by telephone shall take place in a location reasonably accessible from your primary residence, or in Los Angeles, California, at your option. Instructions for initiating an arbitration are available at the JAMS website and toll-free number referenced above.
20.7. Exception - Litigation of Intellectual Property and Small Claims Court claims: Notwithstanding the parties' decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring an action in state or federal court that only asserts claims for patent infringement or invalidity, copyright infringement, moral rights violations, trademark infringement, and/or trade secret misappropriation, but not, for clarity, claims related to the license granted to you for the App under these Terms. Either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court's jurisdiction.
20.8. 30 Day Right to Opt-Out: You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth in the Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver paragraphs above by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to our registered office address set out in clause 1. The notice must be sent within 30 days of the earlier of your first download of the App or commencing use of our games; otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those clauses. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, we also will not be bound by them.
20.9. Changes to this clause: we will provide 60-days’ notice of any changes to this clause. Changes will become effective on the 60th day and will apply prospectively only to any claims arising after the 60th day.
21. Governing law, jurisdiction and limitation of time to file claims
21.1. This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of California without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule.
21.2. You and we irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of state or federal courts in Los Angeles County, California to resolve any claims that are subject to exceptions to the arbitration agreement described in clause 20 above, or otherwise determined not to be arbitrable.
21.3. INSOFAR AS PERMISSIBLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE APP MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES OTHERWISE SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
