Except as set forth in Section 6.10 below, the laws of the state of California, U.S.A., govern these Terms of Service and the provision of the Services to you without reference to principles of conflict of laws.
ONLY FOR USERS LOCATED IN THE UNITED STATES:
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS. ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM UNDER THESE TERMS OF SERVICE OR WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICES WILL BE SETTLED BY BINDING ARBITRATION OR IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT (TO THE EXTENT THE CLAIM QUALIFIES) AND WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS ONLY; CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ARBITRATIONS AND CIVIL ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED ONCE THIS SECTION IS EFFECTIVE.
If you have a question or concern about the Services, please contact first.Our customer support team will try to answer your question or resolve your concern.
In the unlikely event that our customer support team is unable to resolve your concerns, we each hereby agree to resolve any and all disputes or claims under these Terms of Service or with respect to the Services through binding arbitration or in small claims court (to the extent the claim qualifies) instead of in courts of general jurisdiction and only on an individual basis and not as part of any purported class, consolidated or representative proceeding. Arbitration, which is often cheaper, faster and less formal than a lawsuit in court, uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief as a court. Binding arbitration is subject to very limited review. Only the arbitrator appointed pursuant to this Section, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have the authority to resolve any dispute or claim relating to this Section, including, without limitation, the scope, enforceability and arbitrability of these Terms of Service. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms of Service. These Terms of Service evidence a transaction in interstate commerce and the interpretation and enforcement of this Section 6.10 is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, notwithstanding the choice of law set forth in Section 6.9 above.
This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to: (i) all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; (ii) all claims that arose before this or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising); and (iii) all claims that may arise after termination of these Terms of Service and/or your use of the Services.
YOU AND TICKETGATEWAY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, MAY NOT PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING AND MAY ONLY PROVIDE RELIEF IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF WARRANTED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM.
The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules , or, if the actions giving rise to the dispute or claim relate to your personal or household use of the Services (rather than business use), the the Commercial Arbitration Rules (in each case, the “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this Section 6.10, and will be administered by the AAA and settled by a single arbitrator. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of these Terms of Service. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Section 6.10. Unless TicketGateway and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location in the United States for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, AAA shall determine the location. If your claim is for ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds ten thousand dollars ($10,000), the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. All decisions by the arbitrator shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
We believe that on a whole this agreement to arbitrate will benefit our Users. However, if you are an existing registered User and you do not wish to accept this agreement to arbitrate with respect to some or all of your accounts registered prior to October 1, 2015 you may opt-out by sending us a written notice to the Notice Address which (i) states you do not agree to this agreement to arbitrate, (ii) includes your name and all email addresses associated with the accounts you wish to opt-out, and (iii) is signed by the individual who owns the account, or in the event the account is held by an entity, an authorized signer for such entity (the “Opt-Out Notice”). The Opt-Out Notice must be received by November 14, 2015 in order to be effective; otherwise this agreement to arbitrate will be effective as of October 1, 2015. For new registered users and existing registered users who register new accounts following October 1, 2015, there is no option to opt-out and this provision will be effective as to such new accounts upon account creation. For unregistered Attendees and other Users, this provision will apply to all future activities on the Services after October 1, 2015. In the event that you opt-out of this agreement to arbitrate as set forth above, Section 6.12 shall apply.
The failure or delay of TicketGateway to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. No oral waiver, amendment or modification shall be effective under any circumstance whatsoever. If any provision of these Terms of Service is found by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the arbitrator or court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Service shall remain in full force and effect.
In the event that the Agreement to Arbitrate above is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute, either as a result of your decision to opt-out of the Agreement to Arbitrate or for any other reason, then any dispute or claim not subject to arbitration shall be resolved exclusively by a federal court located in San Francisco County, California, and to the extent there is no subject matter jurisdiction in such federal court, then a state court in San Francisco County, California. Both you and TicketGateway agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts and agree that such forum is convenient.
Any Section titles in these Terms of Service are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
Please report any violations of these Terms of Service by email
We may, without your consent or approval, freely assign these Terms of Service and our rights and obligations under these Terms of Service, whether to an affiliate or to another entity in connection with a corporate transaction or otherwise.
