17. Dispute Resolution  

As the following is about resolution of legal issues and I am not a lawyer, I will leave it in full to prevent any confusion or misrepresentation.
 
If a dispute arises between you and AGE, our goal is to provide you with a neutral and cost-effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. Accordingly, you and AGE agree to resolve any claim or controversy at law or in equity that arises from or relates to this Agreement or our Service (a "Claim") in accordance with one of the subsections below.

(a) This Agreement and the relationship between you and AGE shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of California without regard to conflict of law principles or the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods.

(b) You and AGE agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the courts located in Santa Clara County, California, except as provided in subsection 17(c) below regarding optional arbitration. Notwithstanding this, you agree that AGE shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive or other equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction.

(c) For any Claim, excluding Claims for injunctive or other equitable relief, where the total amount of the award sought is less than ten thousand U.S. Dollars ($10,000.00 USD), the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the Claim in a cost-effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. A party electing arbitration shall initiate it through an established alternative dispute resolution ("ADR") provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules:
(a) the arbitration shall be conducted, at the option of the party seeking relief, by telephone, online, or based solely on written submissions;
(b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and
(c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
(d) All Claims you bring against AGE must be resolved in accordance with this Dispute Resolution Section. All Claims filed or brought contrary to this Dispute Resolution Section shall be considered improperly filed. Should you file a Claim contrary to this Dispute Resolution Section, AGE may recover attorneys' fees and costs up to one thousand U.S. Dollars ($1,000.00 USD), provided that AGE has notified you in writing of the improperly filed Claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the Claim.
