16. Governing law
These Terms and your relationship with Perry Street Software under these Terms shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the United States Federal Arbitration Act, other applicable federal laws and the laws of the State of New York, without regard to conflict of laws principles. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is specifically excluded from application to these Terms.
17. BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THESE TERMS OR YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE SERVICE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE VALIDITY, APPLICABILITY OR INTERPRETATION OF THESE TERMS (EACH, A “CLAIM”), SHALL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT, EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY ASSERT CLAIMS IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT IF YOUR CLAIMS QUALIFY. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED.
The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its then-applicable rules, including (as appropriate) its Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at https://www.adr.org
. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. The arbitration shall be conducted in the English language by a single independent and neutral arbitrator. For any hearing conducted in person as part of the arbitration, you agree that the hearing will be conducted in the County and State of New York or the city in the United States in which you reside. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding. Judgment on the arbitral award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Before submitting a Claim to arbitration pursuant to this Section 17, you must first submit the Claim to Perry Street Software for informal resolution through https://support.scruff.com
for users of the SCRUFF App and at https://support.jackd.com
for users of the Jack’d App or contact customer service from within any of our other services or products. You and Perry Street Software agree to work in good faith to resolve the Claim within sixty (60) days. If you and Perry Street Software are unable to resolve the Claim informally within sixty (60) days, then we each may submit the Claim to arbitration.
If you reject the last written settlement offer made by Perry Street Software before the arbitrator was appointed and the arbitrator awards you an amount greater than this last written settlement offer, then Perry Street Software will pay (i) the greater of the award or $500; (ii) your filing fees for the arbitration; and (iii) any fees, costs and expenses deemed appropriate by the arbitrator.
WE EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THESE TERMS OR YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE SERVICE WILL BE RESOLVED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR ARBITRATION. IF FOR ANY REASON A CLAIM PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN IN ARBITRATION, WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND AGREE THAT SUCH CLAIM SHALL BE BROUGHT ONLY IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK OR, IF FEDERAL JURISDICTION IS NOT AVAILABLE, IN THE SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK COUNTY. YOU HEREBY SUBMIT TO THE PERSONAL JURISDICTION AND VENUE OF SUCH COURTS AND WAIVE ANY OBJECTION ON THE GROUNDS OF VENUE, FORUM NON-CONVENIENS OR ANY SIMILAR GROUNDS WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUCH PROCEEDING.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, you and Perry Street Software may seek injunctive relief and any other equitable remedies from any court of competent jurisdiction to protect our intellectual property rights, whether in aid of, pending or independently of the resolution of any dispute pursuant to the arbitration procedures set forth above.

The failure of any party at any time to require performance of any provision of these Terms shall in no manner affect such party's right at a later time to enforce the same. A waiver of any breach of any provision of these Terms shall not be construed as a continuing waiver of other breaches of the same or other provisions of these Terms.
These Terms shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns. You may not assign any of your rights or obligations under these Terms to another party without the express written consent of Perry Street Software.
The parties acknowledge that these Terms are concluded between you and Perry Street Software only, and not with Apple or the owner or operator of any other applicable App Store through which you may have downloaded the App(s) (the “App Store Owner”), and the App Store Owner is not responsible for the App(s) and the contents thereof. The App Store Owner has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the App(s). Perry Street Software, not the App Store Owner, is responsible for addressing any claims from you or any third party relating to the App(s) or your possession and/or use of the App(s), including, but not limited to, product liability claims, any claim that the App(s)s fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement and claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation. The App Store Owner and its subsidiaries are third party beneficiaries of these Terms, and shall have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms against you as a third party beneficiary hereof.
The communications between you and us use electronic means, whether you use the Service or send emails to us, or whether we post notices on the Service or communicate with you via email. For contractual purposes, you (i) consent to receive communications from us in an electronic form; and (ii) agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications would satisfy if they were in a hardcopy writing. The foregoing does not affect your non-waivable rights.
These Terms constitute the complete and exclusive statement of the agreement between Perry Street Software and you with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede any proposal or prior or contemporaneous agreement, oral or written, and any other communications between the parties in relation to the subject matter of these Terms.
You represent and warrant that you are not (i) located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country; and (ii) listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties, including, but not limited to, the Specially Designated Nationals List.
YOU AND PERRY STREET SOFTWARE AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SERVICE MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION SHALL BE PERMANENTLY BARRED.
