This Agreement supersedes all prior terms, agreements, discussions and writings and constitutes the entire agreement between you and us regarding your use of the Services (except as to Services that require separate written agreement with us in addition to this Agreement, including but not limited to additional Terms and Conditions related to promotions). If any provision in this Agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed stricken from this Agreement and will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions of the Agreement, which will remain in full force and effect.
This Agreement does not create a joint venture, agency, partnership, or other form of joint enterprise between you and us. Except as expressly provided herein, neither party has the right, power, or authority to create any obligation or duty, express or implied, on behalf of the other.
Except as indicated below, you agree that disputes between you and Leia will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration or local "small claims" court, if the rules of that court allow it. You expressly waive a trial by jury. In addition, you waive your right to participate in a class action lawsuit or class-wide arbitration. The American Arbitration Association will administer all arbitrations under its Consumer Arbitration Rules. This arbitration provision is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
Before you commence arbitration of a claim, you must provide us with a written Notice of Dispute that includes your name, residence address, username, email address or phone number you use for any Leia account, a detailed description of the dispute, and the relief you seek. Any Notice of Dispute you send to us should be mailed to Leia, Inc. ATTN: Arbitration, Leia, Inc. 2440 Sand Hill Rd. #100 Menlo Park, CA 94025.

In addition, issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration provision are for a court to decide.
For any claim that is not arbitrated or resolved in small claims court, you agree that it will be resolved exclusively in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California or a state court located in San Mateo County. You also agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of either of these courts for the purpose of litigating any such claim. The laws of the State of California, to the extent not preempted by or inconsistent with federal law, will govern these Terms and any claim, without regard to conflict of law provisions.
No wavier of any terms will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term. Our failure to assert a right or provision under this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
