You acknowledge and agree that you and YTP are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Unless both you and YTP otherwise agree in writing, any arbitration will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, collective, consolidated, or representative proceeding. However, you and YTP each retain the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights.
B. Right To Opt-Out. We are providing you with the right to opt-out of this Arbitration Agreement by notifying us in writing within 30 days of purchasing a Product. To opt-out, just contact us at using the phrase "opt-out of arbitration agreement" in the subject matter of the message, and your name in the body of the message.
C. Rules and Governing Law. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the AAA's Consumer Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the "AAA Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. The AAA Rules are available by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
The parties agree that the arbitrator ("Arbitrator"), and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The Arbitrator shall also be responsible for determining all threshold arbitration issues, including issues relating to whether this Agreement is unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration.
Notwithstanding any choice of law or other provision in this Agreement, the parties agree and acknowledge that this Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. ("FAA"), will govern its interpretation and enforcement and proceedings pursuant to the Supreme Court decision in AT&T Mobility vs Concepcion and subsequent case law. It is the intent of the parties that the FAA and AAA Rules shall preempt all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA and AAA Rules are found to not apply to any issue that arises under this Arbitration Agreement or the enforcement thereof, then that issue shall be resolved under the laws of the State of California and the parties expressly agree the venue of any action shall be in civil court in the County of San Diego, California or the United States District Court for the Southern District of California located in San Diego, California, as appropriate for the particular claims asserted.
D. Small Claims Court. If you have a claim against us with a damage demand that does not exceed $10,000, you may opt-out of this Arbitration Agreement Clause and pursue the dispute in the San Diego Small Claims Court system by giving notice to us at .
E. Process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration - Consumer Arbitration Rules at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879). We hereby consent to receive such notifications at . The Arbitrator will be either (1) a retired judge or (2) an attorney specially licensed to practice law in the State of California and will be selected by the parties from the AAA's roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an Arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the Arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
F. Location and Procedure. Unless you and YTP otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in San Diego, California. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and YTP submit to the Arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the Arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary or elect to skip arbitration and proceed to small claims court.
G. The Arbitrator's Decision. The Arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction to do so. The Arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only for the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant's individual claim. An Arbitrator's decision shall be final and binding on all parties. An Arbitrator's decision and judgment thereon shall have no precedential or collateral estoppel effect. The parties shall bear their own attorneys fees associated with the arbitration proceeding.
H. Fees. The parties agree to split all fees of the arbitration charged by AAA equally.
I. Changes. If YTP changes this Arbitration Agreement after the date you first agreed to this Agreement (or to any subsequent changes), you may reject any such change by providing YTP written notice of such rejection within 30 days of the date such change became effective. This written notice must be provided in an email message sent to .

By rejecting changes, you agree that you will arbitrate any dispute between you and YTP in accordance with the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first agreed to this Agreement (or to any subsequent changes to the Terms).
K. Court Jurisdiction Alternative. Should a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator rule this arbitration clause invalid, the parties agree this Agreement shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the United States and the State of California, without reference to rules regarding conflicts of law. The parties further agree the choice of forum and venue for litigating any disputes shall be either the civil courts located in the County of San Diego, California or the United States District Court for the Southern District of California located in San Diego, California, as appropriate for the particular claims asserted.

25. SEVERABILITY WAIVER. If a court of competent jurisdiction finds any term or condition in this Agreement to be unenforceable or null, all other terms will remain unaffected and in full force and effect.
