DEADMAU5 WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE SITES TO YOU ON AN ECONOMICALLY REASONABLE BASIS WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS.
d. Applicable Law and Venue
(i) To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you and deadmau5 agree that if you are a consumer resident of a jurisdiction other than those in (ii) below, the following governing law and arbitration provision applies:
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH DEADMAU5 AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM DEADMAU5.
You and deadmau5 agree to arbitrate any dispute arising from these Terms of Site or your use of the Site, except that you and deadmau5 are not required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable and other relief for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents. ARBITRATION PREVENTS YOU FROM SUING IN COURT OR FROM HAVING A JURY TRIAL. You and deadmau5 agree that you will notify each other in writing of any dispute within thirty (30) days of when it arises. Notice to deadmau5 shall be sent to: Epicwin Ltd. c/o LaPolt Law P.C. 9000 Sunset Blvd., Suite 800, West Hollywood, CA 90069. You and deadmau5 further agree: to attempt informal resolution prior to any demand for arbitration; that any arbitration will occur in Los Angeles County, California; that arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of JAMS; and that the state or federal courts in Los Angeles County, California have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals of an arbitration award and over any suit between the parties not subject to arbitration. Other than class procedures and remedies discussed below, the arbitrator has the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court. Any dispute between the parties will be governed by this Agreement and the laws of the State of California and applicable United States law, without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles that may provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction. Whether the dispute is heard in arbitration or in court, you and deadmau5 will not commence against the other a class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding.
(ii) If you are a resident in any jurisdiction in which the provision in the section above is found to be unenforceable, then any disputes, claims, or causes of action arising out of or in connection with these Terms of Site shall be resolved by competent civil courts in Los Angeles County, California.
YOU AND DEADMAU5 AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SITES MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
