Governing Law and Arbitration

This agreement, or any claim, cause of action or dispute arising out of or related to this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the state of California, without regards to any conflicts of law principles.



Any disputes or claims between you and Fatdoor shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration. However, you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this agreement to arbitrate.



The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its rules and procedures, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, as modified by this agreement. The AAA's rules, and a form for initiating arbitration proceedings, are available at www.adr.org.



The arbitration shall be held in the county that you reside in or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is less than $10,000, you or Fatdoor may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions.



The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.



Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules except as expressly stated here. If the value of the relief sought is less than $10,000, at your statement, Fatdoor will pay all fees associated with the costs of the arbitration proceedings. If the value of the relief sought is more than $10,000, Fatdoor will pay as much of arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive.



All offers, promises, conduct and statements, whether oral or written, made in the course of the mediation by any of the parties, their agents, employees, experts and attorneys, and by the mediator or any AAA employees, are confidential, privileged and inadmissible for any purpose, including impeachment, in any arbitration or other proceeding involving the parties, provided that evidence that is otherwise admissible or discoverable shall not be rendered inadmissible or non-discoverable as a result of its use in the mediation.



If a court decides that any part of this arbitration section is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of the arbitration section shall still apply. If any claim or dispute regarding Fatdoor isn’t arbitrable (or eligible for small claims court), it will be resolved exclusively by a federal or state court located in Palo Alto, California. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of courts located in Palo Alto, California for litigating such claims or disputes.
