With the exception of the prohibition on class arbitrations set forth in this "Dispute Resolution" section, if an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this TOS to arbitrate is unenforceable, the other parts of this TOS to Arbitrate will still apply.
    2. Exceptions to Arbitration. This TOS to Arbitrate will not apply to the following: (i) small claims court cases that qualify; (ii) legal proceedings that involve efforts to obtain user-identifying information; (iii) any legal proceedings brought against any of the Cofame Group by companies or other legal entities; and (iv) a party’s right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. If, for some reason, the prohibition on class arbitrations set forth in this Dispute Resolution section cannot be enforced, then the entirety of this TOS to Arbitrate will not apply. Where this TOS to Arbitrate does not apply, the remainder of this TOS and the Dispute Resolution section will continue to apply.
    3. nformal Dispute Resolution. If either of us intends to seek arbitration under the TOS, the party seeking arbitration must first notify the other party of the dispute in writing at least 30 days in advance of initiating arbitration. Notice to Cofame should be sent to 336 Portage Avenue, Palo Alto, CA94306. If you are a registered user on Cofame, notice to you will be sent to the email address associated with your account. The notice of dispute ("Notice") must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought.
    4. Arbitration Procedure. The arbitration will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), if applicable, as modified by this section. The AAA's rules and a form for initiating the proceeding are available at www.adr.org. Any settlement offer made by you or Cofame shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator. Unless otherwise required by the applicable arbitration rules, the arbitration shall be held in or around Palo Alto, California. For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is $10,000 or less, you and Cofame may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and Cofame subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing. In cases where an in-person hearing is held, you or Cofame may attend by telephone, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise. The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable law, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same Cofame user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
  22. Assignment. You may not assign this TOS without the prior written consent of Cofame, but Cofame may assign or transfer this TOS, in whole or in part, without restriction.
  23. Miscellaneous. If any provision of this TOS is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this TOS will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. Both parties agree that this TOS, together with any Order Form and/or subscription plan, is the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of this TOS, and that all waivers and modifications must be in a writing signed by both parties, except as otherwise provided herein. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of this TOS and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind Cofame in any respect whatsoever. In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under this TOS, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover costs and attorneys’ fees.
