DISPUTE RESOLUTION (ARBITRATION CLAUSE)

Binding ArbitrationM

You and PPN each agree to submit to binding arbitration in the event of a dispute, controversy or claim (each, a “Dispute”) arising out of or in connection with these Terms of Use or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof (including the determination of the scope or applicability of these Terms of Use to arbitrate), your or PPN’s rights and obligations under these Terms of Use, the Site, the use of the Site, and/or the information, services and/or products that may be provided by or through or in connection with the Site. The arbitration will be held in the State of North Carolina before one arbitrator on an individual basis and not as a class action. You expressly waive any right you may have to arbitrate a dispute as a class action. You also expressly waive your right to a jury trial. The arbitration will be administered by JAMS (http://www.jamsadr.com). You may obtain a copy of the rules of JAMS by contacting the organization. You and PPN shall agree on one arbitrator to conduct the arbitration. In the event the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator, the arbitrator will be selected in accordance with the JAMS rules. Each party shall be responsible for its own attorney, expert and other fees, unless such fees are awarded by the arbitrator to the prevailing party. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate PPN’s intellectual property rights, PPN may seek (and you will not contest) injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in North Carolina and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts.

Arbitration Final

The arbitrator’s award is final and binding on all parties. The Federal Arbitration Act, and not any state law concerning arbitration, governs all arbitration under this clause. Any court having jurisdiction may enter judgment on the arbitrator’s award. If any part of this clause, other than waivers of class action rights, is deemed or found to be unenforceable for any reason, the remainder shall remain enforceable. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if the waiver of class action rights contained herein is not enforceable as to any person or persons, such non-enforceability shall apply to such person or persons only, and all other persons shall continue to be governed by the Arbitration Clause.

Giving Up Right of Class Action

These Terms of Use provides that all Disputes will be resolved by binding arbitration and not in court or by jury trial. IF A DISPUTE IS ARBITRATED, YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST THE PPN ENTITIES INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. WITHOUT LIMITATION, THIS INCLUDES GIVING UP YOUR RIGHTS TO BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AS SET FORTH IN ANY STATE STATUTE.

California Residents

If you are a California resident, to the extent permitted by California law, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which states: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor” as well as any other unknown claims under California Civil Code Section 1542 or any statute or common law principle of similar effect.

CHOICE OF LAW; JURISDICTION AND VENUE; WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL

To the maximum extent permitted by law, these Terms of Use are governed by the laws of the United States of America and the State of North Carolina excluding any law or conflicts of law principle that would apply the law of another jurisdiction. To the extent a Dispute is not governed by the Arbitration Clause, you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of courts in North Carolina in all disputes arising out of or relating to the use of the Site or under these Terms of Use; provided, however, that in the event PPN is sued or joined by a third party in any other court or in any other forum in respect of any matter which may give rise to a claim by PPN hereunder, you consent to the jurisdiction of such court or forum over any claim which may be asserted by PPN therein. You irrevocably consent to the exercise of personal jurisdiction by such courts in any such action. In addition, and notwithstanding the foregoing, you irrevocably waive, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any objection that you may now or hereafter have to the laying of the venue of any such suit, action or proceeding brought in any such court and any claim that any such suit, action or proceeding brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum. Final judgment in any such suit, action or proceeding brought in any such court shall be conclusive and binding upon you and may be enforced in any court in which you are subject to a jurisdiction by a suit upon such judgment. Use of the Site is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these Terms of Use, including without limitation this paragraph. To the extent a claim is not governed by the Arbitration Clause, PPN and you each hereby waive the right to a trial by jury in any court and in any suit, action or proceeding, whether in tort, contract, or otherwise, in which any such party is a party, as to any claim arising out of or in connection with these Terms of Use, your or PPN’s rights and obligations under these Terms of Use, the Site, use of the Site, and/or any services and/or products that may be provided by or through or in connection with the Site.
