Section 13. Governing Law; Severability; Waiver; Dispute Resolution

It is your responsibility to ascertain and obey all applicable local, state, federal and international laws, statutes, rules and regulations (including minimum age requirements) related to the use of our Website. Any dispute arising out of, or relating to, the use of the Website will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California without regard to any principles of conflicts of law.

If any part of the Terms are declared to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall be ineffective but shall not affect any other part of the Terms.

Any failure by Ariat to exercise any rights or the waiver of any breach of the Terms by you, shall not prevent a subsequent exercise of such right by us or be deemed a waiver by us of any subsequent breach by you of the same or any other term of the Terms. Our rights and remedies under the Terms shall be cumulative, and the exercise of any such right or remedy shall not limit our right to exercise any other right or remedy.

Section 14. Disputes; Binding Arbitration; No Class Relief.

To the fullest extent permissible by law, with the exception of disputes pertaining to Ariat’s intellectual property rights and certain statutory claims that, pursuant to applicable law, are not arbitrable, any dispute of any kind between you and Ariat arising under these Terms shall be resolved through binding arbitration pursuant to the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures on an individual basis only and with no entitlement to class relief, unless otherwise prohibited by law. The arbitrator shall be a retired judge or justice of any California state or federal court with substantial experience in the internet industry and shall follow California substantive law in adjudicating the dispute, except that this Section 15 shall be construed as a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). You and we agree that we intend that this Section satisfies the “writing” requirement of the FAA. The hearing shall be conducted in the county that encompasses the billing address you have provided to Ariat. For any claim in which you seek U.S. $10,000.00 or less, you shall have the choice as to whether the hearing is conducted in person, by telephone, or instead the arbitrator may decide the dispute without a hearing. For those claims that the arbitrator determines are not frivolous, Ariat shall pay the costs and fees of JAMS and the arbitrator. Ariat agrees that it will not seek reimbursement from you for its costs and fees incurred by it in the arbitration. AGREEMENT TO THESE TERMS CONSTITUTES AN AGREEMENT TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND A WAIVER OF THE ABILITY TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM IN A CLASS ACTION.
