8. US Residents: Binding Arbitration of All Disputes; No Class Relief

(a)US Residents: To the fullest extent permissible by law, with the exception of disputes pertaining to LiveCareer’s intellectual property rights and certain statutory claims that, pursuant to law, are not arbitrable, any dispute of any kind between you and LiveCareer arising under these Terms shall be resolved through binding arbitration pursuant to the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures on an individual basis with no class relief. The arbitrator shall be a retired judge or justice of any New York state or federal court with substantial experience in the internet industry and shall follow New York substantive law in adjudicating the dispute, except that this Section 8 shall be construed as a "written agreement to arbitrate" pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act ("FAA"). You and we agree that we intend that this Section 8 satisfies the "writing" requirement of the FAA. The hearing shall be conducted in the county that encompasses the billing address you have provided to LiveCareer. For any claim in which you seek US$10,000.00 or less, you shall have the choice as to whether the hearing is conducted in person, by telephone, or instead the arbitrator decides the dispute without a hearing. For those claims that the arbitrator determines are not frivolous, LiveCareer shall pay the costs and fees of JAMS and the arbitrator. LiveCareer agrees that it will not seek reimbursement from You for its costs and fees incurred by it in the arbitration. AGREEMENT TO THESE TERMS CONSTITUTES AN AGREEMENT TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND A WAIVER OF THE ABILITY TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM IN A CLASS ACTION.

(b)Non-Us Residents: If any controversy, allegation, or claim (including any non-contractual claim) arises out of or relates to the Site or Terms of Service, then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Section 8(b) Dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provide us. But if no such information exists or if such information is not current, then we have no obligation under this Section 8 (b). Your notice to us must be sent to us at LiveCareerforeigndispute@livecareer.com. For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, LiveCareer and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Section 8 (b) Dispute, though nothing will require either you or LiveCareer to resolve the Section 8(b) Dispute on terms either you or LiveCareer, in each of our sole discretion, are uncomfortable. Nothing in this Section will prevent a party from pursuing their claims in Court or another complaint process.
