You and The City of Shamballa Social Network/Chris Comish agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen or may arise between us will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Section (Section 7.7a: Disputes with The City of Shamballa Social Network/Chris Comish). Please read this Section carefully. It affects your rights and will impact how claims you and we have against each other are resolved.
7.7a1 Contact The City of Shamballa Social Network/Chris Comish first

7.7a3 Agreement to Arbitrate. You and The City of Shamballa Social Network/Chris Comish each agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and The City of Shamballa Social Network/Chris Comish shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate.
7.7a3-1.Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief.
YOU AND THE CITY OF SHAMBALLA SOCIAL NETWORK/CHRIS COMISH AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND THE CITY OF SHAMBALLA SOCIAL NETWORK/CHRIS COMISH AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER CITY OF SHAMBALLA SOCIAL NETWORK USERS.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. An arbitrator also must follow the terms of this User Agreement as a court would.
The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its rules and procedures, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (as applicable), as modified by this Agreement to Arbitrate. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA's website at http://www.adr.org.
The arbitration shall be held in the county of Chris Comish's choice within the State of Colorado. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or The City of Shamballa Social Network/Chris Comish may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and The City of Shamballa Social Network/Chris Comish subject to the arbitrator's discretion to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. Attendance at an in-person hearing may be made by telephone by you and/or The City of Shamballa Social Network/Chris Comish, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.
The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of Colorado, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different City of Shamballa Social Network users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same City of Shamballa Social Network user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
7.7a3-3.Costs of Arbitration.
Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules.
With the exception of any of the provisions in subsection (a) of this Agreement to Arbitrate ("Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief"), if a court decides that any part of this Agreement to Arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall still apply. If a court decides that any of the provisions in subsection (a) of this Agreement to Arbitrate ("Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief") is invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall be null and void. The remainder of the User Agreement, including all other provisions of Section 7.7a (Disputes with The City of Shamballa Social Network/Chris Comish), will continue to apply.
•7.7b. Release of the City of Shamballa Social Network/Chris Comish.
