Terms Of Use

Last Updated: JULY 2, 2024

These terms of use (“Terms”) are provided by the LA Clippers LLC, Clippers G League LLC and Murphy’s Bowl LLC, also doing business as Halo Sports and Entertainment (“Company,” “we,” and “us”). We own and operate Intuit Dome, which hosts sports and live entertainment events, as well as the LA Clippers professional sports team (“Intuit Dome” or “Arena”).   

These Terms apply to your access to and use of our “Services,” which includes our websites, mobile applications and other online services we provide, such as in connection with Intuit Dome events.  These Terms also apply to the purchase of merchandise and other products we sell via our websites or at the Intuit Dome (the “Products”).  For clarity, these Terms apply whether or not you create an account with us.

YOU AND COMPANY AGREE TO RESOLVE MOST DISPUTES SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A CLASS ARBITRATION, CLASS ACTION, ANY OTHER KIND OF REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, OR BY JURY TRIAL.  IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH COMPANY, YOU MAY OPT OUT OF ARBITRATION BY FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS PROVIDED IN SECTION 12(L). If you do not agree to these Terms, you may not use or purchase our Products or Services.

Additionally, separate terms and conditions apply to your purchase and use of a ticket to the Intuit Dome, whether purchased directly from us or obtained from a third party.  If you purchase or use a ticket to the Intuit Dome, you agree to comply with those ticket terms.

We may make changes to these Terms from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of these Terms. If we make material changes, we will provide you with additional notice (such as by adding a statement to our websites or sending you a notification). Unless we say otherwise in our notice, the amended Terms will be effective immediately, and your continued use of our Services after we provide such notice will confirm your acceptance of the changes. If you do not agree to the amended Terms, you must immediately stop using our Services.

3  Product Listings

We may make available listings, descriptions, and images of Products, as well as references and links to Products and coupons or discounts for Products (“Listings”).  We attempt to ensure that any such Listings are complete, accurate, and current, but despite our efforts, the Listings may occasionally be inaccurate, incomplete, or out of date. We make no representations as to the completeness, accuracy, reliability, validity, or timeliness of such Listings (including any features, specifications, and prices contained therein). Such Listings and the availability of any Product (including the validity of any coupon or discount) are subject to change at any time without notice. Certain weights, measures, and similar descriptions are approximate and are for convenience only. We make reasonable efforts to accurately display the attributes of Products, including the applicable colors; however, the actual colors you see will depend on your computer system, and we cannot guarantee that your computer will accurately display such colors.

4 Terms of Sale

The terms in this Section 4 apply to your purchase of any Product from us, whether through our website or at the Intuit Dome, including through the seamless shopping experiences provided at the Arena. You’ll see in this section that some of the terms only apply if you purchase Products through our website and some of the terms only apply if you purchase in-person at Intuit Dome.

4.1 General

(a)   Restrictions. You may only purchase Products for personal use by either yourself or your intended recipient of the Products. The Products are not authorized for resale, other than tickets to events at Intuit Dome if specified on such tickets. We may place a limit on the quantities that may be purchased. We reserve the right, without prior notice, to reject any order at any time and refund any money you have paid for such order.

(b)   Price. All prices for Products are subject to change prior to purchase. We do not collect taxes on merchandise shipped to a jurisdiction in which we do not have substantial nexus, in which case you will be liable to the appropriate taxing authority for any sales taxes relating to your purchase.

(c)   Payment. You represent and warrant that you have the right to use any payment method that you provide through your account or in connection with a transaction. We may receive updated information from your issuing bank or our payment service provider about any payment method you have stored in your account.  You authorize us to charge your payment method, including any updated payment method information we receive, for any charges you are responsible for under these Terms. You will pay all charges incurred by you or those with whom you’ve authorized via your Intuit Dome account to use your payment method, at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred, including all taxes and shipping and handling charges applicable to your transactions.  If your payment method is declined or subsequently becomes invalid, you agree to promptly pay for any associated charges to us in the manner we specify. In the event legal action is necessary to collect on balances due, you will reimburse us and our vendors or agents for all expenses incurred to recover sums due, including attorneys’ fees and other legal expenses.

(d)   Refunds and Exchanges. Merchandise may be refunded or exchanged subject to our Returns and Exchange Policy. Refunds will be made to the same method of payment and account used to place the order. Food and beverages are final sale and may not be refunded or exchanged.

(e)   Reservation of Rights. Company reserves the right, including without prior notice: to limit the available quantity of or discontinue making available any Product; to impose conditions on the honoring of any coupon, discount, or similar promotion; and to reject any purchase transaction.

(a)   Eligibility. To complete your purchase online, you must have a valid billing and shipping address within a jurisdiction that can be selected as part of the checkout process.

Taxes and shipping and handling costs will be added to the amount of your purchase and itemized on the checkout page. You will have an opportunity to review taxes and delivery costs before you confirm your purchase.

(c)   Order Confirmation; Acceptance. Although we may confirm orders by email, the receipt of an e-mail order confirmation does not constitute our acceptance of an order or our confirmation of an offer to sell a Product. We will display or send a notice when we ultimately accept your order, and our acceptance will be complete at the time we display or send the formal acceptance notice.

(d)   Shipping; Delivery. You will pay all shipping and handling charges specified during the ordering process. All transactions are made pursuant to a shipment contract and, as a result, risk of loss and title for Products pass to you upon delivery of the Products to the carrier. You are responsible for filing any claims with carriers for damaged and/or lost shipments. Any shipping dates provided are estimates and not guaranteed. We are not liable for any delays in shipments.

(e)   Order Delays; Cancellation. We reserve the right to delay, refuse, or cancel any order prior to delivery. For example, if there are errors on our website or made in connection with your order or inaccuracies in Product or pricing information or Product availability, we reserve the right to correct the error and charge you the correct price or cancel your order. We will contact you if any portion of your order is canceled or if additional information is required to accept your order. Occasionally, the manufacture or distribution of a certain Product may be delayed. In such event, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you of the delay and keep you informed of the revised delivery schedule.

4.3 Products Purchased In-Person at Intuit Dome

Most of our Intuit Dome stores offer grab-and-go technology to help you get back to your seats more quickly and enjoy the event. If you, or anyone you authorize to use your payment method via your Intuit Dome account, take any Products out of our Intuit Dome stores, you are responsible for paying for the purchase price of the Product and any applicable taxes and authorize us to charge any stored payment method associated with your Intuit Dome account.

9 Indemnification

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Company and our affiliates, and each of our respective officers, directors, agents, partners, and employees (individually and collectively, the “Company Parties”) from and against any losses, liabilities, claims, demands, damages, expenses or costs (“Indemnifiable Claims”) arising out of or related to (a) your access to or use of the Products or Services; (b) your User Content or Feedback; (c) your violation of these Terms; (d) your violation, misappropriation, or infringement of any rights of another (including intellectual property rights or privacy rights); (e) your conduct in connection with the Services; or (f) access to or use of Intuit Dome. You will promptly notify Company Parties of any third-party Indemnifiable Claims, cooperate with Company Parties in defending such Indemnifiable Claims, and pay all fees, costs, and expenses associated with defending such Indemnifiable Claims (including attorneys’ fees). The Company Parties will have control of the defense or settlement, at Company's sole option, of any third-party Indemnifiable Claims. This indemnity is in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other indemnities set forth in a written agreement between you and Company or the other Company Parties.

10 Disclaimers

Your use of our Products and Services and any content or materials provided therein or therewith is at your sole risk. Except as otherwise provided in a writing by us and to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, our Products, Services, and any content or materials provided therein or therewith are provided “as is” and “as available” without warranties of any kind, either express or implied. Company disclaims all warranties with respect to the foregoing, including implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement. In addition, Company does not represent or warrant that our Products or Services or any content provided therein or therewith are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free or that access to our Products or Services or any content provided therein or therewith will be uninterrupted. You assume the entire risk as to the quality and performance of the Products and Services and any content provided therein or therewith.

11 Limitation of Liability   

(a)   To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Company and the other Company Parties will not be liable to you under any theory of liability—whether based in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, warranty, or otherwise—for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, punitive, or special damages or lost profits, even if Company or the other Company Parties have been advised of the possibility of such damages.

(b)   The total liability of Company and the other Company Parties for any claim arising out of or relating to these Terms, our Products or our Services, regardless of the form of the action, is limited to the greater of $100 or the amount paid by you to use the Product or Services giving rise to the claim.

(c)   The limitations set forth in this Section 11 will not limit or exclude liability for the gross negligence, fraud, or intentional misconduct of Company or the other Company Parties or for any other matters in which liability cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law. Additionally, some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.

(d)   To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you release Company and the other Company Parties from responsibility, liability, claims, demands, and/or damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown (including claims of negligence), arising out of or related to disputes between users and the acts or omissions of third parties. If you are a consumer who resides in California, you hereby waive your rights under California Civil Code § 1542, which provides: “A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.

12 Dispute Resolution; Binding Arbitration  

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU AND COMPANY TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU AND COMPANY CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM EACH OTHER. ARBITRATION PRECLUDES YOU AND COMPANY FROM SUING IN COURT OR HAVING A JURY TRIAL. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT ARBITRATION WILL BE SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A CLASS ARBITRATION, CLASS ACTION, OR ANY OTHER KIND OF REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. COMPANY AND YOU ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY A JURY.

THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE TERMS OF THIS SECTION ARE INTENDED TO REDUCE THE FINANCIAL BURDENS ASSOCIATED WITH RESOLVING THEIR DISPUTES AND ARE NOT INTENDED TO DELAY ADJUDICATION OF ANY PARTY’S CLAIMS.

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW, IN SECTION 12(L), IF YOU WISH TO OPT OUT OF THE REQUIREMENT OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. NO CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS OR ARBITRATIONS ARE ALLOWED UNDER THESE TERMS.

(a)   Claims This Section Applies To. The dispute resolution and binding arbitration terms in this Section 12 apply to all Claims between you and Company. A “Claim” is any dispute, claim, or controversy (excluding those exceptions listed below) between you and Company, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, that either party wishes to seek legal recourse for and that arises from or relates to these Terms or the Services, including any privacy or data security claims and claims related to access or use of the Intuit Dome, or claims arising out of or relating to the interpretation, application, validity, enforceability, or scope of the arbitration requirement or any portion of it.

(b)   Informal Dispute Resolution Prior to Arbitration. If you have a Claim against Company or if Company has a Claim against you, you and Company will first attempt to resolve the Claim informally in order to try and resolve the Claim faster and reduce costs for both parties. You and Company will make a good-faith effort to negotiate the resolution of any Claim for 60 days, or such longer period as mutually agreed in writing (email suffices) by the parties (“Informal Resolution Period”), from the day either party receives a written notice of a dispute from the other party (a “Claimant Notice”) in accordance with these Terms.

You will send any Claimant Notice to Company by certified mail addressed to: Murphy’s Bowl LLC,

3930 W. Century Blvd., Inglewood, CA 90303, Attention: Legal Department; or by email to legal@clippers.com. Company will send any Claimant Notice to you by certified mail or email using the contact information you have provided to Company. The Claimant Notice sent by either party must: (i) include the sender’s name, address, email address, telephone number, and any relevant account or purchase information; (ii) describe the nature and basis of the Claim; and (iii) set forth the specific relief sought.

The Informal Resolution Period is designed to allow the party who has received a Claimant Notice to make a fair, fact-based offer of settlement if it chooses to do so. You or Company cannot proceed to arbitration before the end of the Informal Resolution Period. If you or Company file a Claim in court or proceed to arbitration without complying with the requirements in Section 12, including waiting until the conclusion of the Informal Resolution Period, the other party reserves the right to seek relief from a court to enjoin the filing and seek damages from the party that has not followed the requirements in this section to reimburse it for any arbitration fees and costs already incurred as a foreseeable consequence of that breach.

The statute of limitations and any filing fee deadlines for a Claim shall be tolled for the duration of the Informal Resolution Period for that Claim so that the parties can engage in this informal dispute-resolution process.

(c)   Claims Subject to Binding Arbitration; Exceptions. Except for (1) individual disputes that qualify for small claims court (provided that the small-claims court does not permit class or similar representative actions or relief) and (2) any disputes exclusively related to the intellectual property or intellectual property rights of you or Company, including any disputes in which you or Company seek injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of your or Company’s intellectual property or other infringement of your or Company’s intellectual property rights (“IP Claims”), all Claims, including Claims that are not related to intellectual property or intellectual property rights but are jointly filed with IP Claims, that are not resolved in accordance with Section 12(b) will be resolved by a neutral arbitrator through final and binding arbitration instead of in a court by a judge or jury. Such Claims include, without limitation, disputes arising out of or relating to interpretation or application of this arbitration provision, including the enforceability, revocability, or validity of the arbitration provision or any portion of the arbitration provision. The arbitrator will have the authority to grant any remedy or relief that would otherwise be available in court.

(d)   Class Action Waiver. Except as provided in Section 12(m)(iv), any arbitration shall be conducted by the parties in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class-action waiver set forth in the preceding sentence is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration agreement set forth in this Section 12 shall be deemed void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate Claims. Any such claims so released from arbitration must be resolved in accordance with Section 14(b).

(e)   Binding Individual Arbitration. Subject to the terms of this section, Claims may only be settled by binding individual arbitration conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”), https://adr.org/, according to the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (“FAA”). For Claims arbitrated by the AAA, if you are a “Consumer,” meaning that you only use our products and services for personal, family, or household purposes, the then-current version of the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules are the rules applicable to Claims between you and Company as modified by these Terms (the “Rules”). For Claims arbitrated by the AAA, if you are not a Consumer, the then-current version of the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures are the Rules applicable to Claims between you and Company as modified by these Terms.

These Terms affect interstate commerce, and the enforceability of this Section 12 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the FAA, to the extent permitted by law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms, and the Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any Claim and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court, including the power to determine the question of arbitrability. To the fullest extent allowed by applicable law, the arbitrator may only award legal or equitable remedies that are individual to you or Company to satisfy one of our individual Claims (that the arbitrator determines are supported by credible relevant evidence).

(f)    Arbitration Procedure and Location.  You or Company may initiate arbitration of any Claim not resolved during the Informal Resolution Period by filing a demand for arbitration with AAA in accordance with the Rules.

Instructions for filing a demand for with AAA are available on the AAA website or by calling AAA at 800-778-7879. You will send a copy of any demand for arbitration to Company by certified mail addressed to Murphy’s Bowl LLC, 3930 W. Century Blvd., Inglewood, CA 90303, Attention: Legal Department; or email to legal@clippers.com. Company will send any demand for arbitration to you by certified mail or email using the contact information you have provided to Company.

The arbitration will be conducted by a single arbitrator in the English language. You and Company both agree that the arbitrator will be bound by these Terms.

For Claims in which the claimant seeks less than USD $10,000, the arbitrator will decide the matter solely based on written submissions, without a formal hearing, unless the arbitrator decides that a formal hearing is necessary. For Claims in which the claimant seeks USD $10,000 or more, or smaller matters in which the arbitrator determines a hearing to be necessary, hearings will be conducted by video or telephone, unless the arbitrator determines an in-person hearing to be necessary. If an in-person hearing is required and you reside in the United States, the hearing will take place in Los Angeles, California, unless you are a Consumer and the arbitrator determines that this would pose a hardship for you, in which case the in-person hearing may be conducted in the claimant’s state and county of residence. If you reside outside the United States, the site of any in-person hearing will be determined by the applicable Rules.

The arbitrator (not a judge or jury) will resolve all Claims in arbitration. Unless you and Company agree otherwise, any decision or award will include a written statement stating the decision of each Claim and the basis for the award, including the arbitrator’s essential factual and legal findings and conclusions.

An arbitration award, and any judgment confirming it, apply only to that specific case; it cannot be used or offered as precedent in any other case except to enforce the award itself unless the parties agree prior to issuance of the award. Any arbitration decision or award may be enforced as a final judgment by any court of competent jurisdiction or, if applicable, application may be made to such court for judicial confirmation of any award and an order of enforcement.

(g)   Arbitration Fees. Each party will be responsible for arbitration fees in accordance with the applicable Rules and these Terms. Unless otherwise prohibited by law, you and Company have 90 days from receipt of an arbitration-fee invoice to pay the invoiced arbitration fees.

(h)   Frivolous or Improper Claims. To the extent permitted by applicable law, a claimant must pay all costs incurred by the defending party, including any attorney’s fees, related to a Claim if an arbitrator determines that (i) the Claim was not warranted by existing law or by a nonfrivolous argument or (ii) the Claim was filed in arbitration for any improper purpose, such as to harass the defending party, cause unnecessary delay, or needlessly increase the cost of dispute resolution.

(i)    Two Years to Assert Claims. To the extent permitted by law, any Claim by you or Company against the other must be filed within two years after such Claim arises; otherwise, the Claim is permanently barred, which means that you or Company will no longer have the right to assert that Claim.

(j)    Confidentiality. If you or Company submits a Claim to arbitration, you and Company agree to cooperate to seek from the arbitrator protection for any confidential, proprietary, trade secret, or otherwise sensitive information, documents, testimony, and other materials that might be exchanged or the subject of any discovery in the arbitration. You and Company agree to seek such protection before any such information, documents, testimony, or materials are exchanged or otherwise become the subject of discovery in the arbitration.

(k)   Mass Arbitrations. If 25 or more Claimant Notices are received by a party that raise similar claims and have the same or coordinated counsel, these will be considered “Mass Arbitrations” and will be treated as mass arbitrations according to the AAA’s Mass Arbitration Supplementary Rules, if and to the extent Mass Arbitrations are filed in arbitration as set forth in these Terms. You or Company may advise the other of your or Company’s believe that Claims are Mass Arbitrations, and disputes over whether a Claim meets the definition of “Mass Arbitrations” will be decided by the arbitration provider as an administrative matter. To the extent either party is asserting the same Claim as other persons and are represented by common or coordinated counsel, that party waives any objection that the joinder of all such persons is impracticable. The following procedures are intended to supplement the AAA’s Mass Arbitration Supplementary Rules, and to the extent the procedures conflict with those Rules, to supersede them. A court will have authority to enforce the bellwether and mediation processes defined in this section and may enjoin the filing of lawsuits or arbitration demands not made in compliance with it.

Mass Arbitrations may only be filed in arbitration as permitted by the process set forth below. Applicable statutes of limitations will be tolled for Claims asserted in Mass Arbitrations from the time a compliant Claimant Notice has been received by a party until these Terms permits such Mass Arbitration to be filed in arbitration or court. 

                         i.         Initial Bellwether: The bellwether process set forth in this section will not proceed until counsel representing the Mass Arbitrations has advised the other party in writing (email suffices) that all or substantially all the Claimant Notices for the Mass Arbitrations have been submitted.  After that point, counsel for the parties will select 30 Mass Arbitrations to proceed in arbitration as a bellwether to allow each side to test the merits of its arguments. Each side will select 15 claimants who have provided compliant Claimant Notices for this purpose, and only those chosen cases may be filed with the arbitration provider. The parties acknowledge that resolution of some Mass Arbitrations will be delayed by this bellwether process. Any remaining Mass Arbitrations shall not be filed or deemed filed in arbitration, nor shall any arbitration fees be assessed in connection with those Claims, unless and until they are selected to be filed in individual arbitration proceedings as set out in this Section 12.  A single arbitrator will preside over each Mass Arbitration chosen for a bellwether proceeding, and only one Mass Arbitration may be assigned to each arbitrator as part of a bellwether process unless the parties agree otherwise.

                       ii.         Mediation: Once the arbitrations that are part of the bellwether process have concluded (or sooner if the claimants and the other party agree), counsel for the parties must engage in a single mediation of all remaining Mass Arbitrations, with the mediator’s fee paid for by Company. Counsel for the claimants and the other party must agree on a mediator within 30 days after the conclusion of the last bellwether arbitration. If counsel for the claimants and the other party cannot agree on a mediator within 30 days, the arbitration provider will appoint a mediator as an administrative matter. All parties will cooperate for the purpose of ensuring that the mediation is scheduled as quickly as practicable after the mediator is appointed.

                      iii.         Remaining Claims: If the mediation process concludes with 100 or more unresolved Mass Arbitrations remaining, any party to a remaining Mass Arbitration may elect to no longer have the arbitration requirement in this Section 12 apply to all remaining Mass Arbitrations for which a compliant Claimant Notice was received by the other party but that were not resolved in the bellwether process or global mediation. To be effective, such an election must be communicated in writing (email suffices) to counsel for the opposing party within 30 days of mediation concluding. Mass Arbitrations released from the arbitration requirement must be resolved in accordance with Section 14(b).  If the mediation process concludes with fewer than 100 Mass Arbitrations remaining or if no party makes a timely election as provided for in the previous paragraph, the arbitrator will randomly select 50 Mass Arbitrations (or the total remaining amount if less than 50) to proceed in arbitration as a second batch. The arbitrator will randomly select eligible claimants who have provided compliant Claimant Notices for this purpose, and only those chosen cases may be filed with the arbitration provider. Once all arbitrations in the foregoing process are complete, the parties will repeat this process until all Mass Arbitrations have been arbitrated.

                      iv.         Released Claims:  If Mass Arbitrations released from the arbitration requirement are brought in court, claimants may seek class treatment, but to the fullest extent allowed by applicable law, the classes sought may comprise only the claimants in Mass Arbitrations for which a compliant Claimant Notice was received by the other party. Any party may contest class certification at any stage of the litigation and on any available basis.

(l)    Opting Out of Arbitration. You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within 30 days of the date you first accepted these Terms by emailing legal@clippers.com. To be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name, mailing address, and email address. The notice must also clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration in order to be valid. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve disputes in accordance with Section 14(b).

(m) Rejection of Future Arbitration Changes.  You may reject any change we make to Section 12 (except address changes) by sending us notice of your rejection within 30 days of the change via email at legal@clippers.com. Changes to Section 12 may only be rejected as a whole, and you may not reject only certain changes to Section 12.  If you reject changes made to Section 12, the most recent version of Section 12 that you have not rejected will continue to apply.

(n)   Severability. If any portion of this Section 12 is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, including but not limited to because it is found to be unconscionable, (i) the unenforceable or unlawful provision will be severed from these Terms; (ii) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision will have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Section 12 or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Section 12; and (iii) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction, in accordance with these Terms, and not in arbitration. The litigation of those claims will be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Further, if any part of this Section 12 is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking public injunctive relief, that provision will have no effect to the extent such relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this Section 12 will be enforceable.

Except as otherwise provided in this Section 12, if a Claim does not proceed in arbitration, the class-action waiver shall remain in effect, and a court may not preside over any action joining, coordinating, or consolidating the claims of multiple individuals in a single proceeding, except that you and Company may participate in a class-wide, collective, and/or representative settlement of Claims.

(o)   Residents of Other Countries. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, if you reside in any country outside of the United States, you may bring legal proceedings regarding these Terms either by following the arbitration procedure detailed above in this Section 12 of these Terms or, if given the right by applicable law, by submitting the dispute to an arbitration administrator in the jurisdiction in which you reside. To the extent any proceeding is not subject to arbitration under applicable law, you may submit the dispute to the courts of the jurisdiction in which you reside.
