except that either party may elect to proceed in small claims court in the United States if the claims qualify under applicable law. The United States Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to these Conditions of Use.There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Conditions of Use as a court would.
Before you may begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter notifying us of your intent to pursue arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent Corporation Service Company, 300 Deschutes Way SW, Suite 304, Tumwater, WA 98501. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s Commercial Fee Schedule. You and we each agree that the underlying award in arbitration may be appealed pursuant to the AAA’s Optional Appellate Arbitration Rules. The AAA's rules and fee schedules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879 (in the United States). You and we each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action.
If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial
and you and we agree that any such suit may proceed only in state or Federal court in King County, Washington.APPLICABLE LAW
By using any Amazon Service, you agree that the United States Federal Arbitration Act, applicable United States federal law, and the laws of the State of Washington, USA, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Conditions of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Amazon relating to these Conditions of Use or any Amazon Service.SITE POLICIES, MODIFICATION, AND SEVERABILITY
