  4. Dispute Resolution.
    1. Mandatory Arbitration. Please read this carefully. It affects your rights. YOU AND MONKEY AND EACH OF OUR RESPECTIVE CORPORATE PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, PREDECESSORS IN INTEREST, SUCCESSORS, AND PERMITTED ASSIGNS AGREE TO ARBITRATION (EXCEPT FOR MATTERS THAT MAY BE TAKEN TO SMALL CLAIMS COURT), AS THE EXCLUSIVE FORM OF DISPUTE RESOLUTION, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED FOR BELOW, FOR ALL DISPUTES AND CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Please visit www.adr.org for more information about arbitration.
      1. Commencing Arbitration. A party seeking arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written notice of intent to arbitrate (a “Notice”), or, in the absence of a mailing address provided by you to Monkey, to you via any other method available to Monkey, including via e-mail. The Notice to Monkey should be addressed to [ADDRESS], with a copy to [ADDRESS]. The Notice must (A) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (B) set forth the specific relief sought (the “Demand”). If the claim is not resolved within 30 days after the Notice is received, then you or Monkey may commence an arbitration proceeding as set forth below or file a claim in small claims court. THE ARBITRATION WILL BE ADMINISTERED BY THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION (“AAA”) IN ACCORDANCE WITH ITS COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION RULES AND THE SUPPLEMENTARY PROCEDURES FOR CONSUMER RELATED DISPUTES (THE “Rules”), AS MODIFIED BY THIS AGREEMENT. The Rules and AAA forms are available at www.adr.org. If you are required to pay a filing fee to commence arbitration against Monkey, then Monkey will promptly reimburse you for your confirmed payment of the filing fee upon Monkey’s receipt of Notice that you have commenced arbitration along with a receipt for the filing fee, unless your Demand is equal to or greater than $1,000 or was filed frivolously or in bad faith.
      2. Arbitration Proceeding. The arbitration will be in English and will be initiated in New York County, New York. A single independent and impartial arbitrator with his or her primary place of business in New York County, New York, will be appointed pursuant to the Rules, as modified herein. You and Monkey agree to comply with the following rules, which are intended to streamline the dispute resolution process and reduce the costs and burdens on the parties: (A) the arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner to be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (B) the arbitration will not require any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing by the parties; and (C) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Demand exceeds $5,000, Monkey may elect to conduct an in-person hearing under the Rules.
      3. No Class Actions. YOU AND MONKEY AGREE THAT YOU AND MONKEY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. FURTHER, YOU AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE PROCEEDINGS OF MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, AND THAT IF THIS SPECIFIC PROVISO IS FOUND TO BE UNENFORCEABLE, THEN THIS ENTIRE MANDATORY ARBITRATION SECTION WILL BE NULL AND VOID.
      4. Decision of the Arbitrator. Barring extraordinary circumstances, the arbitrator will issue his or her decision within 120 days from the date the arbitrator is appointed. The arbitrator may extend this deadline by 30 days in the interests of justice. Arbitration proceedings will be closed to the public and confidential, and all related records will be permanently sealed, except as necessary to obtain court confirmation of the award. The award will be in writing and will include a statement setting forth the reasons for the claim’s disposition. The arbitrator will apply New York state law during the arbitration. You agree that these terms and your use of the Service evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. The United States Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation, enforcement, and proceedings pursuant to this Section 16. **
    2. Equitable Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Section 16 do not apply to any claim in which Monkey seeks equitable relief of any kind. You acknowledge that, in the event of a breach of this Agreement by Monkey or any third party, the damage or harm, if any, caused to you will not entitle you to seek injunctive or other equitable relief against Monkey, and your only remedy will be for monetary damages, subject to the limitations of liability set forth above.
    3. Claims. You and Monkey agree that, notwithstanding any other rights the party may have under law or equity, any cause of action arising out of or related to this Agreement or the Service, excluding a claim for indemnification, must commence within one year after the cause of action accrues. Otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.
    4. Improperly Filed Claims. All claims you bring against Monkey must be resolved in accordance with this Section 16. All claims filed or brought contrary to this Section 16 will be considered improperly filed. Should you file a claim contrary to this Section 16, Monkey may recover attorneys’ fees and costs, provided that Monkey has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.
    5. Modifications. If Monkey changes the dispute resolution provision pursuant to this Section 16 (other than a change to Monkey’s address), then you may reject any such change by sending us written notice to Monkey within 30 days of the change, in which case your right to use the Service will terminate immediately, and this Section 16, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject, will survive termination of this Agreement.
    6. Enforceability. If only Section 16.a.iii or the entirety of this Section 16 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 16 will be null and void and, in such case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 17 will govern any action arising out of or related to this Agreement.
  5. Governing Law; Choice of Forum. The laws of the State of New York, excluding its conflicts of law rules, govern this Agreement and your use of the Service. Your use of the Service may also be subject to other local, state, national, or international laws; provided, however, that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to any provision of this Agreement. To the extent that any action relating to any dispute hereunder is permitted to be brought in a court of law, such action will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in New York County, New York and you hereby irrevocably submit to personal jurisdiction in such courts, and waive any defense of inconvenient forum.
  6. Feedback. While our staff continually works to develop and evaluate our own product ideas and features, we pride ourselves on paying close attention to the interests, feedback, comments, and suggestions we receive from our users. If you send us or our employees any ideas or suggestions for products, services, features, modifications, enhancements, content, promotions, strategies, or product/feature names, or any related materials (collectively “Feedback”), then regardless of what your communication may say, the following terms apply, to avoid future misunderstandings. By sending us Feedback, you agree that:
    1. Monkey will own, exclusively, all known or later discovered rights to the Feedback;
    2. Monkey will not be subject to any obligation of confidentiality and will not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Feedback; and
    3. Monkey will be entitled to unrestricted use of the Feedback for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to you or any other person.
