  2. Arbitration; No Class Action. If You and We do not reach an agreed-upon solution within a period of 30 days from the time informal dispute resolution is initiated under the Initial Dispute Resolution provision above, notwithstanding good faith negotiations, then You or Us may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve any remaining legal controversy or Claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement or Our Platform or Services (excluding legal action taken by Us to collect or recover damages for, or obtain any injunction relating to, Our Platform, this Agreement, intellectual property, or Our Services, which We may initiate in any court of competent jurisdiction in Clark County, Nevada or in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, in Our discretion ("Arbitration Exceptions")). The binding arbitration shall be administered by JAMS in accordance with the JAMS Consumer Arbitration Rules in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated. Any cause of action by You with respect must be instituted within one (1) year after the cause of action arose or be forever waived and barred. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or 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, regarding whether a Claim is subject to arbitration, or the question of waiver by litigation conduct. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator's award shall be written and shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction in Clark County, Nevada. You hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state courts in Clark County, Nevada, or federal court for the District of Nevada. Either You or Us may seek any interim or preliminary relief from a court of competent jurisdiction in Clark County, Nevada necessary to protect the rights or property of You and Us pending the completion of arbitration. Each party shall bear one-half of the arbitration fees and costs incurred through JAMS. Each party shall bear their own attorney's fees. The parties understand that, absent this mandatory arbitration provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court. Any controversy or Claim shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, and shall not be consolidated in any arbitration with any Claim or controversy of any other party. CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS, REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED.
