13.3 Termination by Cloud9 IDE, LLC.

15.1 Governing Law. To the fullest extent permitted by law, and except as explicitly provided otherwise, these Terms and any disputes arising out of or relating to it will be governed by the laws of the state of California, in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, without giving effect to any principles that provide for the application of the law of any other jurisdiction. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to these Terms. The laws of the jurisdiction where you are located may be different from California law. You shall always comply with all international and domestic laws, ordinances, regulations, and statutes that are applicable to your purchase and use of the Service hereunder.
15.2 Arbitration. If you and we have a disagreement related to the Service or the validity of these Terms, we’ll try to resolve it by talking with each other. If we can’t resolve it that way, we both agree to use confidential binding arbitration, not lawsuits (except for small claims court cases) to resolve the dispute. We agree that any controversy or claim between us will be settled by one neutral arbitrator before the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). There’s no judge or jury in arbitration, arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited than rules applicable in court, and review is limited. But you are entitled to a hearing and the arbitrator’s decisions are as enforceable as any court order.
(a) Arbitration shall be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and not any state arbitration law. As modified by these terms of conditions of use, the arbitration will be governed by the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules and, if the arbitrator deems them applicable, the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively “Rules and Procedures”). We further agree that: (i) the arbitration shall be held at a location determined by AAA pursuant to the Rules and Procedures (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for you), or at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and us; (ii) any claims brought by you or us must be brought in our individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding; (iii) the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding; (iv) in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, we will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation; (v) we also reserve the right in our sole and exclusive discretion to assume responsibility for all of the costs of the arbitration; (vi) the arbitrator shall honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law; and (g) a decision by the arbitrator (including any finding of fact and/or conclusion of law) against either you or us shall be confidential unless otherwise required to be disclosed by law or by any administrative body.
(b) With the exception of subparts (ii) and (iii) in the paragraph above (prohibiting arbitration on a class or collective basis), if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained in these terms of conditions of use. If, however, either subpart (ii) or (iii) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither your or we shall be entitled to arbitration, and the provision below titled “Forum and Jurisdiction” will apply.
(c) For more information on AAA, its Rules and Procedures, and how to file an arbitration claim, you may call AAA at 800-778-7879, write the AAA at 1633 Broadway, 10th Floor, New York, New York 10019, or visit the AAA website at http://www.adr.org.
15.3 Forum and Jurisdiction: You and Cloud9 IDE, LLC agree that (i) claims for infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret (including injunctive remedies or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief for asserted violation or threatened violation of intellectual property rights), (ii) claims for interim equitable relief in court in order to maintain the status quo pending the arbitrator’s ruling, and (iii) if this subparts (ii) and (iii) in Section 15.2(a) are held unenforceable or any claims, demands, or disputes are initiated, filed, or proceed in court rather than in arbitration for whatever reason, such claims, demands, or disputes shall be exclusively resolved by an appropriate federal or state court located in the County of San Mateo, California. You and Cloud9 IDE, LLC agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located in the County of San Mateo, California for such purpose.

15.5 Severability. If any provision of these Terms is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of these Terms will remain enforceable and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you agree that Section 12 (Limitation of Liability) will remain in effect notwithstanding the unenforceability of any provision in Section 11 (Limited Warranty and Disclaimer).
15.6 Waiver. Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of these Terms on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.
15.7 Release.

If you are a California resident, you hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542 in connection with the foregoing, which states: “a general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”
15.8 Remedies. The parties acknowledge that any actual or threatened breach of Section 5 (License Grant and Restrictions) will constitute immediate, irreparable harm to the non-breaching party for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy, and that injunctive relief is an appropriate remedy for such breach. If any legal action is brought to enforce these Terms, the prevailing party will be entitled to receive its attorneys’ fees, court costs, and other collection expenses, in addition to any other relief it may receive.
15.9 No Assignment.

These Terms shall be binding upon the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
15.10 Force Majeure. Any delay in the performance of any duties or obligations of either party (except the payment of money owed) will not be considered a breach of these Terms if such delay is caused by a labor dispute, shortage of materials, fire, earthquake, flood, or any other event beyond the control of such party, provided that such party uses reasonable efforts, under the circumstances, to notify the other party of the cause of such delay and to resume performance as soon as possible.
