d.    your name, street address, telephone number, and email address; 

e.    a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and

Repeat Infringers. We may promptly terminate the accounts of users that are determined by us to be repeat infringers. 

  1. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
    1. Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and WSGR in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, and except as described in Section 16.2, you and WSGR agree that every dispute arising in connection with these Terms will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND WSGR ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. 
       
    2. Exceptions. Despite the provisions of Section 16.1, nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court; (b) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration; or (d) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim. 
       
    3. Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and WSGR will be settled under the Federal Arbitration Act and administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, “AAA Rules”) as modified by these Terms. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting WSGR. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement. 
       
    4. Notice of Arbitration; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if that other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail (“Notice of Arbitration”). WSGR's address for notice is: Wilson Sonsini Goodrich and Rosati, Professional Corporation, 650 Page Mill Road, Palo Alto, California 94304. The Notice of Arbitration must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice of Arbitration is received, you or WSGR may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or WSGR must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor and the amount of the arbitrator’s award exceeds the last written settlement amount offered by WSGR in settlement of the dispute, then, in addition to the amount of the award, WSGR will pay your reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in connection with the arbitration. 
       
    5. Fees. If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, WSGR will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $10,000, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Santa Clara County, California but if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (a) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (b) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (c) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse WSGR for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits. 
       
    6. No Class Actions. YOU AND WSGR AGREE THAT EACH 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, unless both you and WSGR agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. 
       
    7. Modifications to this Arbitration Provision. If WSGR makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to WSGR's address for Notice of Arbitration, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to WSGR's address for Notice of Arbitration, in which case your account will be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected, will survive. 
       
    8. Enforceability. If Section 16.6 is found to be unenforceable or if 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 that case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 19.2 will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms. 
       
  2. Notices and Contact Information. Except as otherwise provided in these Terms, we will give you any notices by email and by posting them in an area of the Alumni Site that is accessible to you. You agree to check the Alumni Site for notices, and you agree that you will be considered to have received a notice when it is emailed to you or made available to you by posting on the Alumni Site. You authorize us to provide notice (including notice of subpoenas or other legal process) to any e-mail or other address that you provide during registration. You agree to keep the address you provide current and you agree that notice provided by us to the address that you have most recently provided will constitute effective notice. You agree to send any notice under these Terms to our email address for legal notices related to the Alumni Site at alumni@wsgr.com. If you would like more information or have a complaint about the Alumni Site, please contact us at: alumni@wsgr.com.
     
  3. Privacy Policy.

You may not assign or transfer these Terms or your rights under these Terms, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. We may assign these Terms at any time without notice or consent. Neither you nor we have relied on any representations that are not expressly set forth in these Terms. If any provision of these Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, the invalid or unenforceable provision shall be given effect to the greatest extent possible and the remainder of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. Our failure to require performance of any provision will not affect our right to require performance at any other time after that, nor will a waiver by us of any breach or default of these Terms, or any provision of these Terms, be a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself. Use of section headers in these Terms is for convenience only and will not have any impact on the interpretation of any provision. Throughout these Terms, the use of the word "including" means "including but not limited to".
