YOUR SOLE REMEDY WITH RESPECT TO the App OR SERVICES IS TO STOP USING THE App OR SERVICES, AS APPLICABLE.
SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW theEXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES AND/OR LIABILITIES, SO CERTAIN OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
16. Governing Law
these Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to its choice of law principles. in the event arbitration does not apply, we and you irrevocably submit to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts of Los Angeles County, California with regard to any dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms. YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A CLASS ACTION OR TO A JURY IN THE EVENT OF ANY DISPUTE THAT PROCEEDS IN STATE OR FEDERAL COURT.
17. Dispute Resolution
we want to resolve amicably any claims or concerns you may have regarding the App and the Services. therefore, before either you or we can initiate a legal action, unless it is for injunctive relief, we shall first attempt to contact the other party to discuss a resolution. you can reach us by sending an email to the email address below. we will contact you at the email address you provide when you register to use the App and Services.
if we cannot resolve the matter amicably, unless you have opted out as set forth above, you and we agree that any dispute, claim or controversy between you and us arising in connection with or relating in any way to these Terms or the App will be determined by mandatory binding individual (not class) arbitration. you and quesay further agree that the arbitrator shall have the exclusive power to rule on his or her own jurisdiction, including any objections with respect to the existence, scope or validity of this arbitration provision or to the arbitrability of any claim or counterclaim. arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. there may be more limited discovery than in court. the arbitrator must follow these Terms and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney fees), except that the arbitrator may not award any relief, including declaratory or injunctive relief, benefiting anyone but the parties to the arbitration. this arbitration provision will survive termination of these Terms.
you and quesay both agree that nothing in this Arbitration Provision will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our rights, at any time, to (1) bring an individual action in a U.S. small claims court; (2) bring an individual action seeking only temporary or preliminary individualized injunctive relief in a court of law, pending a final ruling from the arbitrator; or (3) any claim by quesay in a court of law for violation of its intellectual property rights. in addition, this arbitration provision does not stop you or us from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state or local agencies. such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf (or vice versa).
YOU AND QUESAY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. unless quesay agrees, no arbitrator or judge may consolidate more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. the arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. if a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court.
either you or we may start arbitration proceedings. any arbitration between you and quesay will take place under the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) then in force (the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this arbitration provision. you and quesay agree that the Federal Arbitration Act applies and governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision (despite the choice of law provision above). the AAA Rules, as well as instructions on how to file an arbitration proceeding with the AAA, appear at adr.org, or you may call the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
any arbitration hearings will take place in the county of your residence address, provided that if the claim is for $25,000 or less, you or quesay may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted (1) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; or (2) through a non-appearance based telephonic hearing.
if you choose to file an arbitration proceeding and you are required to pay a filing fee, quesay will reimburse you for that filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than US $10,000, in which case you will be responsible for the filing fee. quesay will pay any other arbitration fees, including your share of arbitrator compensation, unless otherwise required by AAA rules or court order. regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. the arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
if this arbitration provision is invalidated in whole or in part, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in this section shall govern any claim in court arising out of or related to the Terms.
these Terms are effective unless and until terminated by quesay. you may discontinue any further use of the App and associated Services, but these Terms will continue to apply to your use of the App and Services prior to such discontinuance. we also may terminate or suspend these Terms, at any time, without notice and accordingly deny you access to the App and associated Services, for any reason, including without limitation, if at our sole discretion you fail to comply with any provision of these Terms or your use is harmful to the interests of another user of the App. upon any termination of the Terms by either you or us, you must promptly uninstall the App and cease using the Services. Sections 9 through 20 will continue to apply even after the Terms, App or Services have been terminated or suspended.

identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled, and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;

your name, physical address and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of a court for the judicial district in which your physical address is located, or if your physical address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which we may be located, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of allegedly infringing material or an agent of such person.
