all claims and disputes arising under or relating to these terms of use, the site, wallet, browser or the services are to be settled solely and finally by binding arbitration rather than in court. however, you may pursue claims in small claims court to the extent your claims qualify.

by agreeing to arbitrate, you and we understand and agree that disputes between you and us will not be decided by a jury and that you and we may not have the right to have a court review the arbitration award or to appeal it.

the arbitration shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the AAA rules, including the AAA's supplementary procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. you may obtain copies of the AAA's rules and instructions on how to commence a claim at www.adr.org or by calling (800) 778-7879. payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. If such fees you are required to pay would exceed the fees and costs you would incur in a court proceeding, we will reimburse you for such fees to the extent they exceed the amounts you would be required to pay in court, unless the arbitrator determines your claims are frivolous. if we prevail in the arbitration, we will not request attorneys' fees and costs from you in the arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claims are frivolous or unless they are otherwise allowed by applicable law.

you may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the United States in the state you choose or at another mutually agreed location. the arbitration shall be conducted in English and the arbitrator shall follow these terms of use as a court would.

in the event any party commences litigation in any state or federal court, or in any other court or location, the other party shall be entitled to payment of attorney's fees and costs in seeking to compel arbitration and such fees and costs shall be awarded by the court compelling arbitration. in any order compelling arbitration, the court shall include an award of attorneys’ fees and litigation costs and expenses against the party commencing litigation and such award may be entered as a judgment and immediately enforced.

you and we each agree that all dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. if for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration you and we each waive any right to a jury trial.
