Except for claims subject to binding arbitration, as provided in Section 16(c) below, venue for any claim brought by any party shall exclusively lay in the San Francisco Courts.
(b) Election of Small Claims. You hereby agree that any dispute or claim that you bring against the Company arising out of or in connection with these Terms of Service shall only be adjudicated through binding arbitration, as provided in Section 16(c) below, or in the small claims court located in San Francisco County, California (if your claim so qualifies). ACCORDINGLY, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU MAY NOT HAVE ACCESS TO A COURT OTHER THAN A SMALL CLAIMS COURT.

This notice must be addressed to 7X7 Experience, Inc., Attention: Zachary Schwartz-Forester, 1579 Custer Avenue, San Francisco, California 94124.
(c) Arbitration. You and the company acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the provision in Section 16(a) with respect to applicable substantive law, this Section and any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§1–
16). Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the Service, except for a dispute or claim submitted to small claims court pursuant to Section 16(b) above, shall be submitted to binding arbitration in San Francisco County, California, provided that, however, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate the Company’s intellectual property rights, the Company may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any San Francisco Court, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts. You acknowledge that any use of the Service contrary to these Terms of Service, or any transfer, sublicensing, copying, or disclosure of technical information or materials related to the Service, may cause irreparable injury to the Company. Arbitration under these Terms of Service shall be conducted by ADR Services, Inc. in San Francisco under the then-existing Arbitration Rules of ADR Services, Inc. 7X7 will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than the greater of (i) Ten Thousand Dollars (US$10,000) or (ii) the amount you have paid to the Company in the two years preceding the date you file your arbitration claim, in which event you will be responsible for your filing fees. The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which any award is based.The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorney’s fees, and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under these Terms of Service shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to these Terms of Service, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise, and any arbitration or trial by a judge of any claim will take place on an individual basis without resort to any form of class or representative action (the “Class Action Waiver”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the validity and effect of the Class Action Waiver may be determined only by a court and not by an arbitrator. The parties to this agreement acknowledge that the Class Action Waiver is material and essential to the arbitration of any disputes between the parties and is nonseverable from the agreement to arbitrate claims. If the Class Action Waiver is limited, voided, or found unenforceable, then the parties’ agreement to arbitrate shall be null and void with respect to such proceeding, subject to the right to appeal the limitation or invalidation of the Class Action Waiver. The Parties acknowledge and agree that under no circumstances will a class action be arbitrated.
By agreeing to binding arbitration, the parties irrevocably and voluntarily waive any right they may have to a trial by jury as permitted by law in respect to any claim. Furthermore, without intending in any way to limit this provision, to the extent that any claim is not arbitrated, the parties irrevocably and voluntarily waive any right they may have to a trial by jury to the extent permitted by law in respect to such claim. This waiver of jury trial shall remain in effect even if the Class Action Waiver is limited, voided, or found unenforceable. YOU AND 7X7 AGREE AND UNDERSTAND THAT THE EFFECT OF THIS AGREEMENT IS THAT YOU AND 7X7 ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. The laws of the State of California shall govern the interpretation, enforcement, and exercise of the arbitration provisions of these Terms of Service.
(d) Severability of Arbitration Provisions; Alternative Venue. If any court of competent jurisdiction decides that any terms provided in Sections 16(b) and 16(c) are invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, such terms shall be excluded to the extent of such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability; all other terms in this Agreement (including this Section 16(d)) shall remain in full force and effect. You hereby irrevocably consent and agree that, should any court of competent jurisdiction decide that arbitration of this agreement is illegal, unconscionable, or otherwise impermissible: (i) the San Francisco Courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any claim brought by any party; and
(ii) that venue for any claim brought by any party shall lay in the San Francisco Courts.
