- Dispute Resolution
INFORMAL RESOLUTION. To expedite resolution and reduce the cost of any dispute, controversy or claim related to this Agreement (“Dispute“), You and Unreel agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating any arbitration or court proceeding. Such informal negotiations will commence upon written notice. Your address for such notices is Your billing address, with an email copy to the email address You have provided to Unreel. Unreel’s address for such notices is Unreel Entertainment, LLC, 806 Broadway, Santa Monica, CA 90401 Attention: Legal Affairs.
BINDING ARBITRATION. If You and Unreel are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, all claims arising from use of the Services (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) shall finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one (1) party will be final and binding on the other. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT IF EITHER PARTY ELECTS TO ARBITRATE, NEITHER PARTY WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT OR HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration will be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules“) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA“) and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Consumer Rules“), both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org. Your arbitration fees and Your share of arbitrator compensation will be governed by the AAA Rules (and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules). If Your claim for damages does not exceed $10,000, then Unreel will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of Your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)). The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, You and Unreel may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
EXCEPTIONS TO ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION. Each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court or to seek injunctive or other equitable relief on an individual basis in a federal or state court in New York County, New York with respect to any dispute related to the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s intellectual property or proprietary rights.
WAIVER OF RIGHT TO BE A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN A PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. You and Unreel agree that any arbitration will be limited to the Dispute between Unreel and You individually. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND UNREEL ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both You and Unreel otherwise agree, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one (1) person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” Section will be deemed null and void.
LOCATION OF ARBITRATION. Arbitration will take place in New York County, New York. You and Unreel agree that for any Dispute not subject to arbitration (other than claims proceeding in any small claims court), or where no election to arbitrate has been made, the New York state and Federal courts located in New York, New York have exclusive jurisdiction and You and Unreel agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.
- Governing Law

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the subsection entitled “Exception To Alternative Dispute Resolution” in Section 21 is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither You nor Unreel will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of that subsection is found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute will be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within New York, NY and you and Unreel agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that Court.
