- Governing Law; Jurisdiction. This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to conflicts of law principles. Customer agrees, to the extent applicable and expressly subject to the Arbitration provisions below, to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Santa Clara County, California in circumstances where this Agreement permits litigation in court.
Arbitration. PPL and Customer agree that any dispute that has arisen or may arise between us relating in any way to the Customer’s use of or access to the PPL Service, any validity, interpretation, breach, enforcement, or termination of this Agreement, or otherwise relating to PPL in any way (collectively, “Covered Dispute Matters”) will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Section 13(iv).
- Applicable Law. You and PPL agree that United States federal law including the Federal Arbitration Act, and (to the extent not inconsistent with or pre-empted by federal law) the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict of laws principles, will govern all Covered Dispute Matters.
- Arbitration. You and PPL agree that this Agreement and each of its parts evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce, and the Federal Arbitration Act applies in all cases and governs the interpretation and enforcement of the arbitration rules and arbitration proceedings. Any Covered Dispute Matter must be asserted individually in binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules (including utilizing desk, phone or video conference proceedings where appropriate and permitted to mitigate costs of travel). You and PPL agree that the arbitrator shall not conduct any form of class or collective arbitration nor join or consolidate claims by or for individuals. You and PPL agree that the arbitrator, and not any federal, international, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable or a particular claim is subject to arbitration. You and We agree that judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
- Arbitrator’s Award. You and PPL agree that for matters where the relief sought is over $5,000, the arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award.

- Injunctive and Declaratory Relief. Except as provided below, the arbitrator shall determine all issues of liability on the merits of any claim asserted by you or PPL and may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. To the extent that you or PPL have sought public injunctive relief (that is, injunctive relief that has the primary purpose and effect of prohibiting unlawful acts that threaten future injury to the public), the entitlement to and extent of such relief must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration after the party seeking public injunctive relief has first prevailed in arbitration. The parties agree that the litigation of any issues of public injunctive relief shall be stayed pending the outcome of the merits of any individual claims in arbitration.
- Exceptions. There are only two exceptions to this agreement to arbitrate:
1. if either party reasonably believes that the other party has in any manner violated or threatened to infringe the intellectual property rights of the other party, the party whose rights have been violated may seek injunctive or other appropriate interim relief in any court of competent jurisdiction.
2. each party will retain the right to seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of the jurisdiction of such courts.
- Costs of Arbitration. You and PPL agree that payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules, unless otherwise stated in this agreement to arbitrate.
- Judicial Forum for Legal Disputes. Unless You and PPL agree otherwise and except as described above, in the event that the agreement to arbitrate above is found not to apply to You or to a particular claim or dispute, either as a result of your decision to opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, as a result of a decision by the arbitrator or a court order, or because you are an international user to which this agreement to arbitrate does not apply, You agree (except as otherwise provided by law) that any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and PPL must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in the Santa Clara County, California. You and PPL agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts located within the Santa Clara County, California for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.
