9. BINDING ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
9.1 Dispute Resolution. Certain portions of this Section 9 are deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). You and Sunryde LLC expressly agree and intend that this Section 9 satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. This Section 9 can only be amended by mutual agreement.
9.2 Informal Resolution of Disputes and Excluded Disputes. If any Claim or Losses arises out of or relates to the Services or this Agreement, then You and Sunryde LLC agree to send notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Claim or Losses, along with a proposed resolution of it. Sunryde LLC notice to You will be sent to You based on the most recent contact information that You provide Sunryde LLC. If no such information exists or if such information is not current, Sunryde LLC has no obligation under this Section 9.2. For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, You and Sunryde LLC will engage in a dialog to attempt to resolve the Claim or Losses, though nothing will require either You or Sunryde LLC to resolve the Claim or Losses on terms with respect to which You and Sunryde LLC, in each of our sole discretion, are not comfortable.
9.3 BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. If You and Sunryde LLC cannot resolve a Claim or Losses, within sixty (60) days of the receipt of the notice, then You agree that that any such Claim or Losses and all other disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Agreement are void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration relating to Your use of the Services, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court. The FAA, not state law, shall govern the arbitrability of such disputes, including the class action waiver below. However, You and Sunryde LLC agree that California state law or United States federal law shall apply to, and govern, as appropriate, any and all Claims or Losses arising between You and Sunryde LLC regarding this Agreement and the Services, whether arising or stated in contract, statute, common law, or any other legal theory, without regard to choice of law principles. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator must follow the terms of this Agreement as a court would. This Section 9 and provisions on binding arbitration and class action waiver shall survive any termination of your Account or the Services.
(a) Initiating Arbitration. To begin an arbitration proceeding, You must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing Your claim to Sunryde LLC at 6464 Sunset Blvd.. Los Angeles California 90028. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Procedure Rules in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by JAMS’s rules. The arbitration shall take place in Los Angeles, California or at such other venue (and pursuant to such procedures) as is mutually agreed upon. You can obtain JAMS procedures, rules, and fee information as follows: JAMS: 800.352.5267 and http://www.jamsadr.com.
(b) Fees. You and Sunryde LLC will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules; but if applicable arbitration rules or laws require Sunryde LLC to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this Section 9 to be enforceable, then Sunryde LLC will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration. Arbitration rules may permit You to recover attorneys’ fees. Sunryde LLC will not seek to recover attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.
(c) Class Action Waiver. YOU AND SUNRYDE LLC EACH AGREE THAT ANY
DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDING WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL
BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. You and Sunryde LLC each agree that such proceeding shall take solely by means of judicial reference pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure section 638.
(d) Exclusions; Venue. Notwithstanding the agreement to resolve all disputes through arbitration, You or Sunryde LLC may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (including patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, and moral rights, but not including privacy rights). You or Sunryde LLC may also seek relief in small claims court for Claims or Losses within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction. In the event that the arbitration provisions above are found not to apply to You or to a particular Claim or Losses, either as a result of Your decision to opt-out of the arbitration provisions or as a result of a decision by the arbitrator or a court order, You agree that the venue for any such Claim or dispute is exclusively that of a state or federal court located in Los Angeles County, California. You and Sunryde LLC agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Los Angeles County, California for the purpose of litigating all such Claims, Losses or any other disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement or Your use of the Services in the event that the arbitration provisions are found not to apply. In such a case, should Sunryde LLC prevail in litigation against You to enforce its rights under this Agreement, Sunryde LLC shall be entitled to its costs, expenses, and reasonable attorneys’ fees (whether incurred at or in preparation for trial, appeal or otherwise) incurred in resolving or settling the dispute, in addition to all other damages or awards to which Sunryde LLC may be entitled.
(e) Limited Time to File Claims. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU OR SUNRYDE LLC WANT TO ASSERT A DISPUTE AGAINST THE OTHER, THEN YOU OR SUNRYDE LLC MUST COMMENCE IT (BY DELIVERY OF WRITTEN NOTICE AS SET FORTH HEREIN) WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE DISPUTE
ARISES OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED. Commencing means, as applicable: (i) by delivery of written notice as set forth herein; (ii) filing for arbitration with JAMS as set forth herein; or (iii) filing an action in state or federal court. This provision will not apply to any legal action taken by Sunryde LLC to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with any Losses (or potential Losses) relating to the Services, any Content, intellectual property rights of Sunryde LLC, and/or Sunryde LLC’ operation of the Vehicles and/or Services.
(f) Your Right to Opt-Out. You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending written notice of Your decision to opt-out to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “SUNRYDE LLC ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER OPT-OUT.” The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of Your first use of the Services, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate any disputes in accordance with the terms of this Agreement providing for binding arbitration. If You opt-out of these arbitration provisions, Sunryde LLC also will not be bound by them.

Any suspension or termination will not affect Your obligations to Sunryde LLC under this Agreement.
10.2 Waivers. No waiver or any breach of any provision this Agreement is a waiver of any other breach or of any other provision of this Agreement. To the extent permitted by applicable law, You agree to waive, and You hereby waive, any applicable statutory and common law that may permit a contract to be construed against its drafter.

If a court deems any provision of this Agreement, including but not limited to the binding arbitration and class action waiver provisions, illegal or otherwise unenforceable for any reason, You agree that such provision shall be severed from the Agreement and shall be inoperative, and the remainder of the Agreement shall remain operative and shall be binding on the parties.
10.6 Cumulative Remedies. All rights and remedies granted under or referred to in this Agreement are cumulative and nonexclusive, and resort to one by Sunryde LLC does not preclude the availability or applicability of another or to any other right, remedy or defense provided by law.
