Do not use any Services subject to additional terms unless you agree to the terms of this Agreement and those additional terms.

Any claims by Karman, or claims by you that are not resolved by the informal resolution procedure, arising out of, relating to, or connected with this Agreement must be asserted individually in binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. This Agreement and each of its parts evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce, and the Federal Arbitration Act (9 USC §1, et. seq.) will apply in all cases and govern the interpretation and enforcement of the arbitration rules and arbitration proceedings. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. In addition to and notwithstanding the terms stated above, the following will apply to your disputes: (1) the arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable; (2) the arbitrator will not have the power to conduct any form of class or collective arbitration nor join or consolidate claims by or for individuals; and (3) you hereby irrevocably waive any right you may have to a court trial (other than small claims court as provided below) or to serve as a representative, as a private attorney general, or in any other representative capacity, or to participate as a member of a class of claimants, in any lawsuit, arbitration or other proceeding against us or related third parties arising out of, relating to, or connected with this Agreement. There are only three exceptions to this arbitration agreement: (1) if Karman reasonably believes that you have in any manner violated or threatened to infringe the intellectual property rights associated with any of the Sites or Services, Karman may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any court of competent jurisdiction; (2) certain Services are subject to different dispute resolution provisions, which are provided for in the terms applicable to such Services; or (3) any dispute arising from, related to, or connected with this Agreement may, at the option of the claiming party, be resolved in small claims court in Los Angeles County, California, provided that all claims by all parties in the dispute fall within the jurisdiction of the small claims court.

A party’s failure or delay in exercising any right, power or privilege under this Agreement will not waive its rights to exercise such right, power, or privilege in the future, nor will any single or partial exercise of any right, power or privilege preclude any other or further exercise of such right, power, or privilege, or the exercise of any other right, power, or privilege under this Agreement. You and Karman are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer relationship is intended or created by this Agreement. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of this Agreement will not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision of this Agreement, all of which will remain in full force and effect.
