The parties agree that any and all disputes or controversies of any nature between them arising at any time shall be determined by binding arbitration in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the AAA before a single neutral arbitrator (“Arbitrator”) in San Francisco, California. The Arbitrator shall be mutually agreed upon by the parties; if the parties are unable to agree on an Arbitrator, the Arbitrator shall be appointed by the AAA. The Arbitrator shall determine how all expenses relating to the arbitration shall be paid, including without limitation, the respective expenses of each party, the fees of the arbitrator and the administrative fee of the American Arbitration Association. Any final outcome of such arbitration shall be final and binding as to all matters of substance and procedure, and may be enforced by a petition to any court of competent jurisdiction located in the State of California, which may be made ex parte, for confirmation and enforcement of the award. In addition, either party may seek equitable, non-monetary relief at any time in any court of competent jurisdiction located in the State of California without thereby waiving its right to arbitration of any dispute or controversy. All proceedings shall, to the extent permitted by law, be closed to the public and confidential and all records relating thereto shall be permanently sealed, except as necessary to obtain court confirmation of the arbitration award.
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflicts of laws provisions thereof. In the event that any provision of this Agreement shall be determined to be illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. This Agreement and any Order Forms accepted by an authorized representative of Audioshake constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you and Audioshake with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede any prior or contemporaneous oral or written negotiations, understandings or agreements. No changes or modifications or waivers to this Agreement will be effective unless in writing and signed by Audioshake. All notices under this Agreement shall be in writing, and shall be deemed given when personally delivered, when sent by confirmed email, or three days after being sent by prepaid certified or registered U.S. mail. You may not assign this Agreement nor any portion thereof to any third party; any purported assignment shall be void and without effect. In any action to enforce rights or obligations under this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover costs and reasonable attorney fees.
