ARBITRATION, CONSENT TO JURISDICTION IN SAN FRANCISCO, ATTORNEYS’ FEES

Any and all disputes, claims or controversies arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the breach thereof, or any use of the Site (“Claims”), except for claims filed in a small claims court that proceed on an individual basis, shall be settled by binding arbitration before a single arbitrator appointed by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its then governing rules and procedures. In agreeing to arbitrate all Claims, you and ruchipuri.com waive all rights to a trial by jury in any action or proceeding involving any Claim. The arbitration shall be held in San Francisco, California, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof. This arbitration undertaking is made pursuant to and in connection with a transaction involving interstate commerce and shall be governed by and construed and interpreted in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 USC Section 1, et seq. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement. Subject to the limitations set forth below, the arbitrator shall have authority to award legal and equitable relief available in the courts of California provided that:

Any and all claims shall be arbitrated on an individual basis only, and shall not be consolidated or joined with or in any arbitration or other proceeding involving a Claim of any other party. You and RuchiPuri.com LLC agree that the arbitrator shall have no authority to arbitrate any Claim as a class action or in any other form other than on an individual basis. The prevailing party shall be entitled to attorneys’ fees.

For claims that are not subject to arbitration: (a) the exclusive jurisdiction and venue for proceedings involving Claims shall be the courts of competent jurisdiction sitting within San Francisco, California (“Forum”) and the parties hereby waive any argument that any such court does not have personal jurisdiction or that the Forum is not appropriate or convenient; (b) you and ruchipuri.com waive any and all rights to trial by jury with respect to any Claims.
