ARBITRATION / GOVERNING LAW AND VENUE FOR DISPUTES
Arbitration Agreement. You understand that, in return for agreement to this provision, Blockchange is able to offer the Service at the terms designated, and that your assent to this provision is an integral part of Blockchange's willingness to enter into these Terms, except with respect to imminent harm requiring temporary or preliminary injunctive relief in which case Blockchange may seek such relief in any court with jurisdiction over the parties.
Any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, shall be determined by arbitration in San Francisco before one arbitrator. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and pursuant to JAMS' Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. All awards rendered by the arbitrators shall be binding and final, and judgment upon the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
All parties to this Terms are giving up the right to sue each other in court, including the right to a trial by jury, except as provided by the rules of the arbitration forum in which a claim is filed, or an agreement between the parties to waive arbitration under this paragraph.
Arbitration awards are generally final and binding; a party's ability to have a court reverse or modify an arbitration award is very limited.
The ability to obtain documents, witness statements and other discovery is generally more limited in arbitration than in court proceedings.
The arbitrators do not have to explain the reason for their award.
The panel of arbitrators will typically include a minority of arbitrators who were or are affiliated with the securities industry.
The rules of some arbitration forums may impose time limits for bringing a claim. In some cases, a claim that is ineligible for arbitration may be brought in court.
The rules of the arbitration forum in which the claim is filed, and any amendments thereto, shall be incorporated into this Terms.
No person shall bring a putative or certified class action to arbitration, nor seek to enforce any pre-dispute arbitration agreement against any person who has initiated in court a putative class action or who is a member of putative class who has not opted out of the class with respect to any claims encompassed by the putative class action until: (i) the class certification is denied; (ii) the class is decertified; or (iii) the customer is excluded from the class by the court. Such forbearance to enforce an agreement to arbitrate shall not constitute a waiver of any rights under this Terms except to the extent stated herein.
