10. Dispute Resolution
ANY DISPUTE, CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY BETWEEN YOU AND TRENDSCAPING RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THIS AGREEMENT OR YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE SERVICES, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, STATUTE, REGULATION, ORDINANCE, TORT (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION, FRAUDULENT INDUCEMENT, OR NEGLIGENCE), OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY (“DISPUTE”), WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION IF IT CANNOT BE RESOLVED THROUGH NEGOTIATION AS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 10. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT THE DISPUTE WILL BE RESOLVED BY A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF IN A COURT BY A JUDGE OR JURY.
NOTWITHSTANDING THE ABOVE, YOU AND TRENDSCAPING AGREE THAT (A) ANY DISPUTE THAT MAY BE BROUGHT IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT MAY BE INSTITUTED IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT IN KING COUNTY, WASHINGTON INSTEAD OF BEING RESOLVED THROUGH ARBITRATION, AND (B) EITHER PARTY MAY SEEK INJUNCTIVE RELIEF IN ANY COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION TO (I) ENJOIN INFRINGEMENT OR VIOLATION OF (A) ANY DATA USE RESTRICTIONS CONTAINED IN THESE TERMS, OR (B) A PARTY’S INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS; OR (II) ENJOIN SCRAPING, WEB CRAWLING OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO EITHER PARTY’S WEB SITES OR SERVICES.
If you have a Dispute with Trendscaping, you must send written notice describing the Dispute to Trendscaping to allow Trendscaping an opportunity to resolve the Dispute informally through negotiation. Your notice must be sent to the following address: Trendscaping, Attn: Legal Department, [address]. If we have a Dispute with you, we will send written notice (email or letter) describing the Dispute to you. The parties agree to negotiate resolution of a Dispute in good faith for no fewer than 30 days after notice of a Dispute has been provided. If the Dispute is not resolved within 30 days from receipt of notice of the Dispute, you or Trendscaping may proceed to have the Dispute resolved through arbitration as each party’s exclusive Dispute resolution process (except for the limited exceptions set forth above).
Any arbitration, if required, will be conducted by JAMS under its Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, which are located at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration, (last checked June 23, 2016). These rules will govern the payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees, unless this Section 10 expressly provides otherwise. If the amount of any claim in an arbitration is US$10,000 or less, Trendscaping will pay all filing, administration and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration, so long as (i) you make a written request for such payment of fees and submit it to the JAMS with your Demand for Arbitration, and (ii) your claim is not determined by the arbitrator to be frivolous. In such case, we will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to the JAMS. If the amount of the claim exceeds US$10,000 and you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Trendscaping will pay as much of the filing, administration, and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to litigation. If the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration are frivolous, you agree to reimburse Trendscaping for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by Trendscaping on your behalf, which you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the JAMS’s rules.
The arbitration shall be held in King County, Washington. If the value of the relief sought is US$10,000 or less, either of us may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on us subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing. Attendance at any in-person hearing may be made by telephone by you and/or us, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.
YOU AND TRENDSCAPING EACH WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO CONDUCT DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS IN A CLASS ACTION OR CONSOLIDATED ACTION. YOU AND TRENDSCAPING EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, WITH THE SOLE EXCEPTION OF REPRESENTATIVE SUITS THAT ARE PERMITTED BY, AND DEEMED UNWAIVABLE UNDER, STATE LAW. IF FOR ANY REASON A CLAIM PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN IN ARBITRATION, WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
If any clause within this Section 10 (other than the class action waiver clause above) is determined to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Section 10, and the remainder of this Section 10 will be given full effect. If the class action waiver clause is determined to be illegal or unenforceable, this entire Section 10 will be unenforceable, and the Dispute will be decided by the courts of the state of Washington, King County, or the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington, and the parties irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts.
11. Time Limitation on Claims
You agree that, regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to these Terms or your use of the Services or Materials must be filed within one year after such claim or cause of action arose. Any claim not filed within the foregoing one-year period will be forever barred.
12. General Terms
If any part of these Terms held to be invalid or unenforceable, the unenforceable part will be given effect to the greatest extent possible, and the remaining parts will remain in full force and effect. Trendscaping reserves the right to revise these Terms at any time by posting revised Terms on this Web site or otherwise making such revised Terms available through the Services. If we make material revisions to these Terms, we will use the date at the top of these Terms to indicate the date it was last revised.

If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions, you must immediately terminate your use of the Services or Materials.
If we do not enforce a breach of these Terms, that does not mean that we have waived our right to enforce these Terms against your or others. You may not assign or transfer these Terms (or your Account or use of Services) to anyone without our consent. However, you agree that Trendscaping may assign these Terms without notice or consent. There are no third party beneficiaries to these Terms, other than as explicitly provided herein.
