MOTHER SCIENCE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL EQUITABLE INDEMNITIES.

(10) Arbitration and Class Action Waiver – IMPORTANT – PLEASE REVIEW AS THIS AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH MOTHER SCIENCE AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM MOTHER SCIENCE, UNLESS YOU OPT OUT OF ARBITRATION BY FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS SET FORTH BELOW. NO CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS OR ARBITRATIONS ARE ALLOWED UNDER THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. IN ADDITION, ARBITRATION PRECLUDES YOU FROM SUING IN COURT OR HAVING A JURY TRIAL.
YOU AND MOTHER SCIENCE AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR OUR SERVICES IS PERSONAL TO YOU AND MOTHER SCIENCE AND THAT ANY DISPUTE WILL BE RESOLVED SOLELY THROUGH INDIVIDUAL ACTION, AND WILL NOT BE BROUGHT AS A CLASS ARBITRATION, CLASS ACTION OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
Except for small claims disputes in which you or Mother Science seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or Mother Science seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and Mother Science WAIVE YOUR RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL AND TO HAVE ANY DISPUTE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR OUR SERVICES RESOLVED IN COURT. Instead, for any dispute or claim that you have against Mother Science or relating in any way to the Services, you agree to first contact Mother Science and attempt to resolve the claim informally by sending a written notice of your claim (“Notice”) to Mother Science by email at email@example.com. The Notice must (a) include your name, residence address, email address, and telephone number; (b) describe the nature and basis of the claim; and (c) set forth the specific relief sought. Our notice to you will be similar in form to that described above. If you and Mother Science cannot reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after such Notice is received, then either party may submit the dispute to binding arbitration administered by JAMS or, under the limited circumstances set forth above, in court. All disputes submitted to JAMS will be resolved through confidential, binding arbitration. Arbitration proceedings will be held in Los Angeles County, California or may be conducted telephonically or via video conference for disputes alleging damages less than $500, in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“JAMS Rules”). The most recent version of the JAMS Rules are available on the JAMS website and are hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the JAMS Rules or waive your opportunity to read the JAMS Rules and waive any claim that the JAMS Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
You and Mother Science agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 10 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court, including the power to determine the question of arbitrability. The arbitrator may conduct only an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
You and Mother Science will maintain the confidentiality of any arbitration proceedings, judgments and awards, including, but not limited to, all information gathered, prepared and presented for purposes of the arbitration or related to the dispute(s) therein. The arbitrator will have the authority to make appropriate rulings to safeguard confidentiality, unless the law provides to the contrary. The duty of confidentiality does not apply to the extent that disclosure is necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy or in connection with a judicial challenge to an arbitration award or its enforcement, or to the extent that disclosure is otherwise required by law or judicial decision.
You and Mother Science agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and Mother Science will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Mother Science, Mother Science will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and Mother Science agree that the state or federal courts of the State of California and the United States sitting in Los Angeles County, California have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
Any claim arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, the claim is permanently barred, which means that you and Mother Science will not have the right to assert the claim. You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within 30 days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 10 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. In order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and address and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve disputes in accordance with Section 12.
If any portion of this Section 10 is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, (a) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from these Terms; (b) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Section 10 or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Section 10; and (c) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Further, if any part of this Section 10 is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking public injunctive relief, that provision will have no effect to the extent such relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this Section 10 will be enforceable.
(11) Termination and Access Restriction
Mother Science reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate your access to the Site and the related services or any portion thereof at any time, without notice. Use of the Site is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these Terms, including, without limitation, this section.
These Terms are governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws provisions. Any dispute between you and Mother Science that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in state and federal courts sitting in Los Angeles, California.
Unless otherwise specified herein, the Terms constitute the entire agreement between the user and Mother Science with respect to the Site and they supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between the user and Mother Science with respect to the Site. A printed version of the Terms and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to the Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. The section headings are provided merely for convenience and shall not be given any legal import. If any part of the Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Terms shall continue in effect.
Our failure to act on or enforce any provision of the Terms shall not be construed as a waiver of that provision or any other provision in the Terms. No waiver shall be effective against us unless made in writing, and no such waiver shall be construed as a waiver in any other or subsequent instance. We shall not be liable for any failure to perform our obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation.
The Terms will inure to the benefit of our successors, assigns, licensees, and sublicensees. You agree that no agency, joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and Mother Science as a result of the Terms or use of the Site. Mother Science's performance of the Terms is subject to existing laws and legal process, and nothing contained in the Terms is in derogation of Mother Science's right to comply with governmental, court and law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your use of the Site or information provided to or gathered by Mother Science with respect to such use.
Mother Science welcomes your questions or comments regarding the Terms:
