These Terms, and any claims, suits, proceedings, and other actions of any kind arising out of, relating to, or concerning these Terms and the discussions contemplated hereby (“Claims”), are governed by the laws of the State of California, without references to its conflict of laws principles, except to the extent governed by the United States Trademark Act of 1946 or other superseding federal law. For all Claims, each party hereto irrevocably and unconditionally consents to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in San Francisco County, California (and each party agrees not to commence any Claim relating thereto except in such courts). Each party hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waives any objection to the laying of the venue of any Claim, in the federal and state courts located in San Francisco County, California and hereby further irrevocably and unconditionally waives and agrees not to plead or claim in any such court that any such Claim brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, any Claim must be brought within two (2) years of the date such Claim first accrued. All Claims must be brought in each party’s individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or similar, collective action, private Attorney General action, or other representative proceeding.
