IF YOU SIGN UP FOR A MEMBERSHIP THAT INCLUDES A FREE-TRIAL PERIOD, UNLESS YOU HAVE CANCELLED YOUR MEMBERSHIP PRIOR TO THE EXPIRATION OF THE FREE-TRIAL PERIOD, AS AUTHORIZED BY YOU DURING THE MEMBERSHIP SIGN-UP PROCESS, UAP WILL AUTOMATICALLY CHARGE YOU FOR THE FIRST YEARLY MEMBERSHIP FEE UPON THE EXPIRATION OF THE FREE-TRIAL PERIOD AND FOR EACH SUBSEQUENT YEARLY MEMBERSHIP FEE ON THE YEARLY ANNIVERSARY OF THE DATE OF THE FIRST BILLING.

8 – DISPUTE AND ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION WAIVER; CHOICE OF LAW
8.1 - DISPUTE AND ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION WAIVER
Please read this carefully. It affects your rights.
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to a customer's satisfaction by calling our customer service department at 212-228-9937. In the unlikely event that our customer service department is unable to resolve a complaint you may have to your satisfaction (or if we have not been able to resolve a dispute we have with you after attempting to do so informally), WE EACH AGREE TO RESOLVE THOSE DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT (OTHER THAN THOSE RELATED TO UAP'S ENFORCEMENT AND PROTECTION OF ITS INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS) THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION OR SMALL CLAIMS COURT INSTEAD OF IN COURTS OF GENERAL JURISDICTION. This includes any claims against other parties relating to services or products provided or billed to you (such as our licensors, suppliers, dealers or third party vendors, including, without limitation, MyPlay) whenever you also assert claims against us in the same proceeding.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. The arbitrator must follow this Agreement and can award the same damages and relief that a court can award.
We each also agree that this Agreement affects interstate commerce so that the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply (despite the choice of law provision in Section 8.2 below). ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED.
Agreement to Arbitrate:
(1) UAP and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us (other than those related to UAP's enforcement and protection of its intellectual property rights). This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; claims that arose before this Agreement or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising); claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement. References to "UAP," "you," and "us" include our respective parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, agents, employees, third party vendors, predecessors in interest, successors and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or products under this Agreement or prior agreements between us.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and UAP are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
(2) A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to UAP should be addressed to: UAP, LLC, Attn: Dawn Olejar, 420 W 14th St, Suite 6NW, New York, NY 10014 with a copy to: DLA Piper LLP (US), Attn: Leon Medzhibovsky and Michele Matsubara, 1251 Avenue of the Americas, New York, New York 10020-1104 (collectively, the "Notice Address"). The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If UAP and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within forty-five (45) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or UAP may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by UAP or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or UAP is entitled.
(3) After UAP receives Notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, it will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee. If you are unable to pay the filing fee, UAP will pay it directly upon receiving a written request from you at the Notice Address. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this arbitration provision, but the arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. Unless UAP and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Except as otherwise provided for herein, UAP will pay all AAA filing, administration and arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated in accordance with the notice requirements above. If, however, the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all such fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse UAP for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules.
(5) The right to attorneys' fees and expenses discussed in Paragraph 4 supplements any right to attorneys' fees and expenses you may have under applicable law. Thus, if you would be entitled to a larger amount under applicable law, this provision does not preclude the arbitrator from awarding you that amount. However, you may not recover duplicative awards of attorneys' fees or costs. Although under some laws UAP may have a right to an award of attorneys' fees and expenses if it prevails in an arbitration, UAP agrees that it will not seek such an award.
(6) The arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. YOU AND UAP AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and UAP agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific proviso is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.
(7) Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if UAP makes any change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Notice Address), you may reject any such change and require UAP to adhere to the language in this provision if a dispute between us arises.
8.2 – CHOICE OF LAW
This Agreement is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of New York, without regard to its conflicts of laws rules. Foreign laws do not apply. Arbitration or court proceedings must be in New York County, New York. If any provision of the Agreement is invalid under the law of a particular jurisdiction, that provision will not apply in that jurisdiction. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, and any law based on the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (UCITA), are expressly excluded from this Agreement.
