GOVERNING LAW, ARBITRATION

(a) If You are a resident of any EU member state, this Agreement is governed by and will be construed according to English law. If you are a resident of the United States, this Agreement is governed by and will be construed according to California law. If you are resident of any territory outside the United States or the EU, this Agreement is governed by and will be construed in accordance with the laws of Japan. To the extent that any lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted under this Agreement, you and Pioneer DJ agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the following for the purpose of litigating all such disputes: (i) the courts of London, if you are a resident of an EU member state; (ii) the state courts and federal courts located within Los Angeles County, California if you are a resident of the U.S.; and (iii) the courts of Tokyo, Japan, if you reside elsewhere.

(b) In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Pioneer DJ in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and Pioneer DJ agree that any and all disputes arising in connection with this Agreement shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Our agreement to arbitrate disputes includes, but is not limited to all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of this Agreement, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether the claims arise during or after the termination of this Agreement. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND PIONEER DJ ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, UNLESS SUCH WAIVER IS INVALID UNDER APPLICABLE LAW. YOU AND PIONEER DJ 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 OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Pioneer DJ agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this Section 15(b) is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 15(b) shall be null and void and, in such case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 15(a) shall govern any action arising out of or related to this Agreement.

(i) Arbitration Agreement. If you are a resident of any EU member state: The Parties can choose to finally settle all claims that are not resolved by the Informal Resolution procedure , arising out of, relating to, or connected with this Agreement (including its formation, interpretation, applicability, enforceability, performance and breach) by binding arbitration. If parties agree to settle claims by arbitration, such arbitration shall be conducted under the arbitration rules of the International Chamber of Commerce by three arbitrators designated in accordance with those rules. The arbitration shall be held in London in the English language. The arbitrator will not have the power to conduct any form of class or collective arbitration nor join or consolidate claims by or for individuals. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

    (ii) If you are a resident of the United States:
  • Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and Pioneer DJ will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting Pioneer DJ.
  • Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail or Federal Express (signature required), or in the event that we do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail ("Notice"). Pioneer DJ's address for Notice is: Pioneer DJ Americas,Inc. 2050 W 190th Street, Suite #109, Torrance, California 90504. Attention: VP of Operations
  • The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Pioneer DJ may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Pioneer DJ shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. In the event our dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, Pioneer DJ shall pay you (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any, (ii) the last written settlement amount offered by Pioneer DJ in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator's award; or (iii) $1,000.00, whichever is greater.
  • Fees. In the event that you commence arbitration in accordance with this Agreement, Pioneer DJ will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than $10,000, in which case the payment of any fees shall be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearings will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Los Angeles County, California, provided that if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted (i) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (ii) through a non-appearance based telephonic hearing; or (iii) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse Pioneer DJ for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under 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 decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
  • Modifications. In the event that Pioneer DJ makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to Pioneer DJ's address for Notice), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to Pioneer DJ's address for Notice, in which case your Account shall be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject shall survive. (iii) If you are a resident of Japan or of another country outside of the EU or the United States: Any claims by us, or claims by you that are not resolved by the Informal Resolution procedure, arising out of, relating to, or connected with this Agreement shall be finally settled by arbitration in Tokyo, Japan, in accordance with the rules of the Japan Commercial Arbitration Association. The award of arbitration shall be final and binding upon both parties and shall have the reasoning therein.

(c) Exceptions. There are only the following exceptions to this arbitration agreement.

(i) First, if we reasonably believe that you have in any manner violated or threatened to infringe the intellectual property rights, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any court of competent jurisdiction.

(ii) Second, if you are a resident of the United States, any dispute arising from, related to, or connected with this Agreement may, at the option of the claiming party, be resolved in small claims court in Los Angeles County, California, provided that all claims by all parties in the dispute fall within the jurisdiction of the small claims court. In addition, either of us may pursue enforcement actions through applicable U.S. federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available.

(iii) Third, if you are a resident of any EU member state, in case you do not agree to settle claims through arbitration, London courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle all claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including its formation, performance and breach).

(iv) Fourth, nothing herein will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of Pioneer DJ or your right to seek injunctive relief in a court of law.
