20. AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE; CLASS ACTION WAIVER; AND LOCATION OF DISPUTE RESOLUTION. You and YI each agree that all claims, controversies, and disputes between You and YI, including those arising out of or related to any of the Apps, your Account, or these Terms (each a “Dispute” and collectively the “Disputes”), will be resolved by binding arbitration by a single neutral arbitrator, provided, however, you and YI are not precluded from asserting in small claims court any Dispute that is eligible to be brought in small claims court. BY AGREEING, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU AND YI ARE EACH AGREEING TO FOREGO THE ABILITY TO PURSUE DISPUTES IN COURT, OTHER THAN SMALL CLAIMS COURT, INCLUDING THE ABILITY TO HAVE A JURY DECIDE DISPUTES. Unless You and YI otherwise agree, JAMS will arbitrate all disputes and JAMS rules will apply. You and YI each agree to only pursue Disputes on an individual basis and will not pursue Disputes, whether in arbitration or otherwise, on a class, consolidated, or representative basis, regardless of the application of procedural rules. BY AGREEING, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU AND YI ARE EACH AGREEING TO FOREGO THE ABILITY TO PROCEED IN CLASS ACTIONS, CONSOLIDATED ACTIONS, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS, EITHER AS A REPRESENTATIVE OF OR MEMBER OF A CLASS. Notwithstanding any JAMS rule to the contrary, or any other provision in arbitration rules chosen by agreement to govern the arbitration, You and YI each agree that any challenges to the validity or enforceability of the class action waiver in this Section will be decided by and you consent to personal jurisdiction under the Northern District of California federal courts, and not by an arbitrator. If any court or arbitrator holds that the class action waiver in this Section is unenforceable, then the Dispute must be brought in a California state court in Santa Clara County or federal court in the Northern District of California, and not in arbitration. You and YI each agree that the location of the arbitration where the Dispute will be resolved will be Santa Clara County. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts of the Northern District of California and the California state courts in Santa Clara County. You and YI each also agree that for arbitrated Disputes, the arbitrator’s award will be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. An arbitrator may award, on an individual basis, any relief authorized by law, including injunctive or declaratory relief and reasonable attorneys’ fees. You and YI each are responsible for your or its respective costs relating to the arbitration, except that YI will pay all arbitration administrative or filing fees, including the arbitrator fees (other than arbitrator fees up to the amount of the then-applicable fee for filing a civil action in federal court in the judicial district where you live in any Dispute where You assert a claim against YI, unless You demonstrate to the arbitrator that You would be entitled to file that civil action in federal court without payment of the then-applicable fee). To begin arbitration, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your Dispute to the contact listed for YI in Section 17. You may opt-out of the agreement to arbitrate in this Section by mailing YI written notice of your election to opt-out at 1450 114th Ave SE, Suite 225, Bellevue, WA 98004 within 30 days of your first use of any of the Cameras, YI Account, or any of the Apps (whichever is earlier), expressly indicating that You are opting out of the agreement to arbitrate in this Section and including your name and address, provided that the election will not be effective until it is received by YI. Your election to opt-out of the agreement to arbitrate in this Section will not otherwise affect your rights and obligations under these Terms. You and YI each also agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce, so the Federal Arbitration Act, not state law, applies including with respect to any question of whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration (despite the choice of governing law in Section 19).
The terms of these arbitration provisions will also apply to any claims asserted by you against any present or future parent or affiliated company of YI relating to your use of YI products.
21. General. If any provision of these Terms is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. You and YI intend that the provisions of these Terms be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. Accordingly, you and YI agree that if any provision is deemed unenforceable, where possible, it will be modified to the extent necessary to make it enforceable, which may include its deletion. Section titles are only for convenience and have no legal or contractual significance. Any list of examples following “including” or “e.g.,” is illustrative and not exhaustive, unless qualified by terms like “only” or “solely. YI may assign these Terms, in whole or in part, at any time, with or without notice to you. You may not assign, transfer, or sublicense your rights, if any, in your Account, to any of the Apps, or under these Terms. If, at any time, YI fails to respond to a breach of these Terms by you or others, that failure will not waive YI’s right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. A waiver will only be binding on YI if it is in writing and signed by YI. These Terms (including Additional Terms and any incorporated terms or policies) constitute the entire agreement between you and YI with respect to your Account and the Apps. Both you and YI warrant to each other that, in entering these Terms, neither YI nor you have relied on or will have any right or remedy based upon any statement, representation, warranty, or assurance other than those expressly stated in these Terms. The preceding sentence will not limit or exclude any liability that cannot be limited or excluded under applicable law. No one other than you and YI, or YI’s successors and permitted assigns, will have any right to enforce any of these Terms. The failure of YI to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of YI.
