ARBITRATION AGREEMENT/GOVERNING LAW/CLASS ACTION WAIVER/DISPUTE RESOLUTION
BOTH YOU AND MAXX COMPANIES WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND THE RIGHT TO BRING OR RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE AS A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION. BOTH YOU AND MAXX COMPANIES WAIVE THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION RELATED ANY DISPUTE THAT IS BROUGHT BY ANYONE ELSE. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY PROVISION IN THE JAMS (DEFINED BELOW) RULES TO THE CONTRARY, THE ARBITRATOR SHALL NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY OR ANY JURISDICTION TO HEAR THE ARBITRATION AS A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR TO CONSOLIDATE, JOIN, OR OTHERWISE COMBINE THE CLAIMS OF DIFFERENT PERSONS INTO ONE PROCEEDING.
You agree that these Terms and your use of our Maxx Platform is governed by the laws of the State of New York, USA without regard to its conflict of law principles. The parties each agree to finally settle all disputes only through arbitration; provided, however, Maxx Companies shall be entitled to seek injunctive or equitable relief in the state and federal courts in New York, New York and any other court with jurisdiction over the parties. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited. The arbitrator's decision and award are final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. The parties agree that, except as set forth above, any claim, suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to these Terms will be resolved solely by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the streamlined Arbitration Rules Procedures of JAMS Inc. ("JAMS") or any successor to JAMS. In the event JAMS is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within fourteen (14) days of the filing of a "Demand for Arbitration," then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by another mutually agreeable arbitration administration service who will hear the case. If an in-person hearing is required, then it will take place in New York, NY, Miami, FL, Denver, CO, Phoenix, AZ, Las Vegas, NV, or Salt Lake City, UT (whichever is closest to your residence) or – where required by the JAMS rules – in or near your hometown. The federal or state law that applies to these Terms will also apply during the arbitration. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claims or controversy of another party, including any class actions or class arbitrations; provided, however, if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the agreement to arbitrate does not apply and the dispute must be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in New York, New York. Maxx Companies agree to pay the administrative and arbitrator's fees in order to conduct the arbitration (but specifically excluding any travel or other costs incurred by you to attend the arbitration hearing). Either party may, notwithstanding this provision, bring qualifying claims in small claims court. In no event will you seek or be entitled to rescission, injunctive or other equitable relief or to enjoin or restrain the operation or exploitation of these Terms or the Maxx Platform, provided that nothing in these Terms will restrict a California resident’s right, if any, to pursue public injunctive relief as permitted by law.
The failure of Maxx Companies to act with respect to a breach of these Terms by you or others does not constitute a waiver and will not limit Maxx Companies’ rights with respect to such breach or any subsequent breaches. No waiver by Maxx Companies of any of these Terms will be of any force or effect unless made in writing and signed by a duly authorized officer of Maxx Companies. Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice will act to modify these Terms. Maxx Companies may assign its rights and duties under these Terms to any party at any time without any notice to you. Terms may not be assigned by you without Maxx Companies’ prior written consent. If any provision of these Terms are found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. If a court or other decision-maker should determine that any provisions of these Terms is overbroad, unfair or unreasonable, such provision shall be given effect to the maximum extent possible by narrowing or enforcing in part that aspect of the provision found overbroad or unreasonable. The Section titles are inserted only as a matter of convenience and have no legal or contractual effect. You agree that these Terms will not be construed against Maxx Companies by virtue of Maxx Companies having drafted them. No amendment to or modification of these Terms, or action, or delay, will be binding unless in writing and signed by Maxx Companies. Provisions of these Terms that would logically survive termination shall survive the termination of these Terms for any reason (including without limitation, Disclaimer of Warranties Waiver, Limitation of Liability; Waiver and Arbitration).

Notwithstanding any other provision within these Terms, the following additional terms are applicable to those using any Maxx Companies application on an Apple iOS device: You understand that these Terms are between you and Maxx Companies only and not Apple, Inc. (“Apple”) and that Maxx Companies (or the third party develop that may own and operate the Mobile Features) are responsible for the Mobile Features and the content thereof, but that Apple and its subsidiaries are third-party beneficiaries of these Terms and have the right to enforce them against you. You understand that, should the Mobile Features fail to conform to any applicable warranty not disclaimed above, you may notify Apple and Apple will refund the purchase price (if any), but that Apple has no maintenance, support, or (to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law) other warranty obligations to you with regard to the Mobile Features. Apple is not responsible for any product liability claims or claims that the Mobile Features or your use thereof fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement or infringes a third party’s intellectual property rights. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Mobile Features, please contact Maxx Companies as described below.
OUR RIGHT TO UPDATE THESE TERMS
Maxx Companies reserve the right to modify or add to these Terms at any time without prior notice ("Updated Terms"). You agree that we may notify you of the Updated Terms by posting them on the Maxx Platform so that they are accessible via a link on the homepage or otherwise, and that your use of a Maxx Platform after we have posted the Updated Terms (or engaging in such other conduct as we may reasonably specify) constitutes your agreement to the Updated Terms. Therefore, you should review these Terms before using a Maxx Platform. The Updated Terms will be effective as of the time of posting, or such later date as may be specified in the Updated Terms, and will apply to your use of a Maxx Platform from that point forward.
