  1. Arbitration

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES WITH CONTINENTAL MILLS AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM CONTINENTAL MILLS.

Except for small claims disputes in which you or Continental Mills seek to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address, or disputes in which you or Continental Mills seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and Continental Mills waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Sites or Site Materials resolved in court. Instead, all disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Sites or Site Materials will be resolved through confidential binding arbitration held in King County, Washington in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“Rules”) of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”), which are available on the JAMS website and hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the rules of JAMS or waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason. You and Continental Mills agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Sites or Site Materials is personal to you and Continental Mills and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.

You and Continental Mills agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 18 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; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct 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 Continental Mills agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and Continental Mills will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Continental Mills, Continental Mills will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and Continental Mills agree that the state or federal courts in King County, Washington have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.

Any claim you may have arising out of or related to these Terms or our Sites or Site Materials must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, your claim is permanently barred, which means that you and Continental Mills will not have the right to assert the claim.

You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 17 by writing to legal@continentalmills.com. In order to be effective, the opt out notice must include your full name 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 19.

  1. Applicable Law and Venue

These Terms and your use of the Sites shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Washington, without resort to its conflict of law provisions. You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these Terms shall be filed only in the state and federal courts located in King County, Washington and you hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts over any suit, action or proceeding arising out of these Terms.
