Dispute Resolution: Customer service is important to us, so we ask that you first try to resolve your dispute by contacting us. If we cannot informally resolve your dispute, you agree that all disputes between you and KD arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including any alleged breach) will be resolved by binding arbitration, unless your claim may be brought in small claims court.
Arbitration: The American Arbitration Association will administrate the arbitration in San Diego County, California pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act, and where consistent California law, without regard to or application of the conflict of law provisions of your state or country of residence. The arbitration will be conducted by one arbitrator, as agreed on by you and KD (and if you and KD cannot agree, appointed in accordance with the American Arbitration Associations’ Rules). The arbitration will be conducted in the English language, but any witness whose native language is not English may give testimony in the witness’ native language, with simultaneous translation into English at the expense of the party presenting the witness. The parties specifically exclude from application to these Terms the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act.
You understand that by using the Services YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, to assert or defend any claims between you and KD (except for matters brought in small claims court) BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction over the parties. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms.
Small Claims Action: If your claim meets the requirements to file a small claims action, you agree to the sole jurisdiction and venue of any small claims court located in San Diego County, California. To the extent state law applies, California law shall govern without regard to or application of the conflict of law provisions of your state or country of residence.
No Class Action: You agree to give up your right to participate in a class action or class proceeding, including class arbitration, limited attorney general action, or other representative action or proceeding.
21. Statute of Limitations
You acknowledge that any and all claims must be filed within one (1) year of the date you could first bring the claim, unless your local law requires a longer time to file claims. If a claim is not filed within one (1) year, unless otherwise provided by applicable law, the claim is permanently barred.
KD may assign or delegate this Agreement, in whole or in part, to any person or entity at any time with or without your consent. You may not assign or delegate any rights or obligations under this Agreement without KD‘s prior written consent, and any unauthorized assignment and delegation by you is void.
