ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE WITH RESPECT TO ANY SITE MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISES.
Except with respect to the protection and enforcement of the intellectual property rights of the DSM Parties and their rights to seek and/or obtain injunctive or equitable relief, any claim, cause of action or proceeding arising out of or relating to the Terms or the Sites shall be resolved by mandatory, binding arbitration in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) as supplemented by AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. Any such claim, cause of action or proceeding shall be arbitrated on an individual basis and without resort to any form of class action. The arbitration shall be conducted in San Diego, California, and the Federal Arbitration Act, and not any state law concerning arbitration, shall apply. The arbitration award shall be final and exclusive, and the prevailing party in the arbitration may file an action in court to confirm and to enforce the arbitration award. Any such action, or any claim, cause of action or proceeding not subject to arbitration as set forth in this section, shall be filed and adjudicated in a state or federal court in San Diego County, California, and all parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of those courts. You irrevocably waive any rights to seek and/or obtain injunctive or other equitable relief and any defense of forum non conveniens. Should either party pursue any other judicial or administrative action with respect to any matter included within the scope of this binding arbitration provision, the responding party will be entitled to recover its costs, expenses and attorneys’ fees incurred as a result of such action.
The failure of DSM to act with respect to a breach of these Terms by you or others does not constitute a waiver and will not limit DSM’s rights with respect to such breach or any subsequent breaches. No waiver by DSM of any of these Terms will be of any force or effect unless made in writing and signed by a duly authorized officer or legal representative of DSM. Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice will act to modify these Terms. DSM may assign its rights and duties under these Terms to any party at any time without any notice to you. These Terms may not be assigned by you without DSM’s prior written consent. If any provision of these Terms will be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. The Section titles are inserted only as a matter of convenience and have no legal or contractual effect. You agree that these Terms will not be construed against DSM by virtue of having drafted them.
