PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY because IT REQUIRES YOU TO arbitrate certain disputes WITH BITTITAN AND IT may LIMIT THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM BITTITAN (NO CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS OR ARBITRATIONS).
(a) Binding Arbitration; Disputes; Small Claims. BitTitan’s goal is to resolve claims fairly and quickly. Accordingly, subject to Section 11(b) below, for any Dispute between you and BitTitan, you and BitTitan will each waive any right to a jury trial, or the right to have any Dispute resolved in any court, and instead accept the use of final and binding arbitration (which is the referral of a Dispute to one or more impartial persons for a final and binding determination); provided, however, that subject to Section 11(b) below, you have the right to litigate any Dispute in small claims court, if all the requirements of the small claims court, including any limitations on jurisdiction and the amount at issue in the Dispute, are satisfied. You will bring a Dispute through arbitration in King County, Washington or, if you reside in the U.S., in small claims court only in your county of residence or King County, Washington.
(b) Exceptions to Binding Arbitration and Small Claims. You and BitTitan agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations, small claims and binding arbitration: (i) IP Disputes; and (ii) any claim for injunctive relief.
(c) No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions. You and BitTitan agree that any Dispute is personal to you and BitTitan, and that any Dispute shall only be resolved through individual arbitration and shall not be brought as a class arbitration, a class action, or any other representative proceeding. You and BitTitan agree that there will be no class arbitration or an arbitration where a person brings a Dispute as a representative of any other person or persons. Further, you and BitTitan agree that a Dispute cannot be brought as a class or other type of representative action, whether inside or outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other person or persons.
(d) Federal Arbitration Act. You and BitTitan agree that this Agreement affects interstate commerce and that the enforceability of Section 11 shall be governed by, construed, and enforced, both substantively and procedurally, by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (“FAA”) to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
(e) Confidentiality. The arbitrator, BitTitan, and you shall maintain the confidentiality of any proceedings, including but not limited to, any and all information gathered, prepared, and presented for purposes of the arbitration or related to the Dispute(s) therein. The arbitrator shall have the authority to make appropriate rulings to safeguard that confidentiality, unless the law provides to the contrary.
(f) Process. For any Dispute between you and BitTitan, you and BitTitan will first attempt to negotiate any Dispute informally for 30 days before initiating or seeking to compel any arbitration or to resolve any claim in court. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one party to the other (“Notice”). The Notice to BitTitan must be sent by certified mail addressed to: Legal Counsel, 218 Main Street, #719, Kirkland, Washington 98033. Your Notice must (i) include your name, residence address, and the email address and/or mobile telephone number associated with your Services Account; (ii) describe the nature and basis of the claim; and (iii) set forth the specific relief sought. The Notice from BitTitan will be sent to the email address and/or other applicable contact details associated with your Services Account and will describe items (ii) and (iii) above. If you and BitTitan cannot reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after such Notice is received, then either party may, as appropriate and in accordance with this Section 11, commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in court in accordance with this Section 11. You and BitTitan agree that any arbitration or court proceeding must be commenced or filed within one year of a Dispute arising; otherwise, the Dispute is permanently barred. In the event that you and BitTitan cannot resolve a Dispute and you do not pursue your claims through court, you or BitTitan shall promptly submit the Dispute to binding arbitration at the office of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”). In the event JAMS declines or is unable to administer the arbitration, you and BitTitan will use an arbitration forum or arbitrator that you and BitTitan mutually agree upon. If, after making a reasonable effort, you and BitTitan are not able to agree upon an arbitration forum or arbitrator, JAMS or a court having proper jurisdiction will appoint an arbitration forum or arbitrator. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“JAMS Rules”) then in effect. The arbitrator shall issue a standard form of award. If you are an individual, you and BitTitan each shall bear your own costs and fees of such arbitration; provided that your costs of initiating the arbitration shall be limited to $500, and BitTitan shall pay the remainder of costs payable to JAMS of initiating the arbitration (but not any ongoing costs of maintaining the arbitration).The JAMS Rules and other information about JAMS and arbitration are readily available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/ or by calling 1-800-352-5267. The JAMS Rules, including JAMS Rule 8(b) are hereby incorporated by reference. By agreeing to this Agreement, you either (1) acknowledge that you have read and understand the JAMS Rules or (2) waive reading the JAMS Rules and waive any claim that the JAMS Rules are unfair in any way. You and BitTitan agree that this Agreement governs the arbitration, and that the applicable JAMS Rules shall be subject to changes in procedures that JAMS may make from time to time.
(g) Appeals. The state or federal courts in King County, Washington have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals of an arbitration award and over any suit between the parties not subject to arbitration. Other than class procedures and remedies discussed above, the arbitrator has the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court.
(h) Severability. You and BitTitan agree that if any term, clause or provision of Section 11 is found illegal, unconscionable or unenforceable, that term, clause or provision shall be severed and the remainder of this Section 11 shall be given full force and effect.
As limited by the FAA, this Agreement, and the applicable JAMS Rules, including JAMS Rule 8(b), the arbitrator will have the exclusive power and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions concerning the Dispute; provided, however, that this power does not include the power to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by this Agreement (as stated above). The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration, and may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not preside over any form of representative or class proceeding, or any proceeding on behalf of or involving more than one person or persons.
12. SUSPENSION AND TERMINATION
(a) Suspension and Termination Right. You may terminate this Agreement by ceasing to access and use the BitTitan Service Offerings.

(b) Effect of Termination. In the event of any termination, your rights under this Agreement will immediately terminate.

(e) Severability. If any term, clause or provision of this Agreement shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that term, clause or provision shall be deemed severable from this Agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
(f) Nonwaiver. Any failure by either party to insist upon or enforce performance by you of any of the provisions of this Agreement or to exercise any rights or remedies under this Agreement or otherwise by law will not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of any right to assert or rely upon the provision, right or remedy in that or any other instance; rather, the provision, right or remedy will be and shall remain in full force and effect.
(g) Third Party Rights. Except as specifically provided in Sections 8 and 10, this Agreement is for the benefit of, and will be enforceable by, the parties only.

This paragraph will not apply to any payment obligation of a party.
(i) Venue; Limitations Period.

This does not affect your statutory rights.
