The United Nations Convention of Contracts for International Sale of Goods, Uniform Commercial Code, and the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act shall not apply to this EULA.
For any Disputes (as defined below) deemed not subject to binding individual arbitration, as provided in the section immediately below, you and 1047 Games agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in the Carson City, Nevada, including for any action seeking to compel arbitration or vacate an arbitral award, and consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts. You and 1047 Games agree to waive any jurisdictional, venue, or inconvenient forum objections to such courts (without affecting either party’s rights to remove a case to federal court if permissible), as well as any right to a jury trial. Any law or regulation which provides that the language of a contract shall be construed against the drafter will not apply to this EULA. This Section will be interpreted as broadly as applicable law permits.
16. Binding Individual Arbitration; Class Action Waiver
YOU AND 1047 GAMES ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY, OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY ALSO BE UNAVAILABLE OR MAY BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
16.1 Informal Resolution.
If a dispute arises between you and us, you agree to first provide us with notice of your complaint via email to email@example.com so that we may attempt to resolve the dispute informally with you within sixty (60) days from the date your complaint is received.
Any claim, dispute, or controversy (regardless of the cause of action or nature of the claim) between you and 1047 Games, its employees, officers, directors, agents and third party service providers in connection with the Game or Game Server or arising from or relating in any way to your use of the Game,the Game Server, this EULA, or the interpretation, breach, termination, or validity thereof (a “Dispute”), if unresolved through the informal process outlined above, will be resolved by binding arbitration conducted by the Judicial Arbitration Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS”) subject to the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law and according to the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures then in effect in arbitrating any Dispute, as modified by this EULA. The JAMS rules are available at www.jamsadr.com.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, arbitration is not required for (a) individual actions in small-claims court; (b) pursuit of enforcement actions through a government agency if the law allows; (c) an action to compel or uphold any prior arbitration decision; (d) 1047 Games’ right to seek injunctive relief against you in a court of law to preserve the status quo while an arbitration proceeds; (e) the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause above.
You and 1047 Games agree that whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration under this EULA will be determined by the arbitrator rather than a court.
The arbitration hearing will be held in Carson City, Nevada. If you are an individual consumer using the Game for personal, non-commercial use (an “Individual Consumer”), and you are located within the United States, you may alternatively select your state of residence as the place of arbitration, but all other actions remain subject to the venue and choice of law provisions in the Governing Law and Jurisdiction section The arbitrator presiding over a Dispute will be a retired judge or justice of any state or federal court with substantial experience in the subject matter relevant to the matter in dispute and will follow Nevada law, exclusive of conflict or choice of law rules, in adjudicating the dispute.
The parties acknowledge that this EULA evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the provision in the preceding paragraph with respect to applicable substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to this EULA will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
You agree that the arbitrator presiding over a Dispute will be instructed, whenever practicable, to resolve threshold legal issues by way of motions filed by you and 1047 Games.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, will have exclusive authority to resolve all Disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this EULA,including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of this EULA is void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity, other than class relief. The arbitrator’s award will be written, and binding on 1047 Games and you and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. If you are an Individual Consumer, 1047 Games will pay all arbitration administrative fees and fees for the arbitrator’s services, other than the filing fee required for you to initiate a claim.
If you are an Individual Consumer and the claim you wish to assert against us is for less than $10,000 then, at your election, (i) the arbitration may proceed in-person, by telephone, or by written briefs or (ii) you may in lieu of arbitration bring your claim in small claims court. If either party files a claim in state or federal court that is required by this EULA to have been brought to arbitration, then the other party will be entitled to such party’s reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in successfully compelling arbitration.
Both parties reserve the right to seek a preliminary injunction or temporary restraining order from a federal or state court located in Carson City, Nevada. However, after such request for relief has been adjudicated by such court, the remainder of the Dispute will be resolved by binding arbitration as set forth herein.
If a Dispute must be arbitrated, you or 1047 Games must start arbitration of the Dispute within two (2) years from when the Dispute first arose. If applicable law requires you to bring a claim for a Dispute sooner than two years after the Dispute first arose, you must start arbitration in that earlier time period. 1047 Games encourages you to tell us about a Dispute as soon as possible so we can work to resolve it. The failure to provide timely notice shall bar all claims.
16.3 Class Action Waiver.
YOU AND 1047 GAMES AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES WILL BE RESOLVED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND THAT ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT UNDER THIS EULA OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE GAME MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PUTATIVE CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. You further agree that will not participate in any class action (existing or future) brought by any third party arising under this EULA or in any way in connection with the Game. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this Section is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration here under can proceed on a class-wide basis, then such class action is not subject to arbitration and must be litigated in state or federal court in Carson City, Nevada.
If all or any provision of this EULA is found invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, then you and 1047 Games agree that the provision will be severed and the rest of the agreement shall remain in effect and be construed as if any severed provision had not been included. The sole exception is that if the Class Action Waiver is found invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, you and 1047 Games agree that it will not be severable; this entire Section 16 will be void and unenforceable and any dispute will be resolved in court subject to the venue and choice of clauses specified in this EULA. Under no circumstances shall arbitration be conducted on a class basis without 1047 Games’ express consent.

You have the right to opt out of and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth in this EULA. To exercise this right, you must send written notice of your decision to the following address: 1047 Games, LLC, P.O. Box 10578, Zephyr Cove, NV 89448.

No waiver of any default, condition or breach of this EULA shall constitute a waiver of any other default, condition or breach of this EULA, whether of a similar nature or otherwise. Any provision found unlawful by a court or regulator having jurisdiction shall be deemed to be severed from the EULA, but such severance shall have no effect on the enforceability of the remaining provisions of the EULA. You agree that you will comply with all applicable laws in connection with the Game and this EULA, including without limitation export control laws. You must supply all necessary facilities, utilities and equipment necessary to play the Game, including appropriate computer equipment and Internet connections, at your sole risk and expense.
