Instead, Grantee and BAA will arbitrate Disputes through binding arbitration (which is the referral of a Dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the Dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it instead of having the Dispute decided by a judge or jury in court).
(b) No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions. Any Dispute arising out of or related to these Terms is personal to Grantee and BAA and will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. There will be no class arbitration or arbitration in which an individual attempts to resolve a Dispute as a representative of another individual or group of individuals. Further, a Dispute cannot be brought as a class or other type of representative action, whether within or outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other individual or group of individuals.

Grantee’s notice must include (i) Grantee’s name, postal address, email address and telephone number, (ii) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute, and (iii) the specific relief that Grantee is seeking. If Grantee and BAA cannot agree how to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after the date notice is received by the applicable Party, then either Grantee or BAA may, as appropriate and in accordance with this Section 10, commence an arbitration proceeding or, to the extent specifically provided for in this Section 10), file a claim in court.
(e) Any arbitration will occur in Santa Clara County, California. Arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”), which are hereby incorporated by reference. The state and federal courts located in Santa Clara County, California will have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award. Grantee may also litigate a Dispute in the small claims court located in the county where Grantee resides if the Dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court.

As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the applicable JAMS rules, the arbitrator will have (i) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute, including the determination of whether a Dispute is arbitrable, and (ii) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
(g) Rules of JAMS. The rules of JAMS and additional information about JAMS are available on the JAMS website. By agreeing to be bound by these Terms, Grantee either (i) acknowledges and agrees that Grantee has read and understands the rules of JAMS, or (ii) waives Grantee’s opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
(h) Severability of Dispute Resolution; Arbitration. If any term, clause or provision of this Section 12 is held invalid or unenforceable, it will be so held to the minimum extent required by law, and all other terms, clauses and provisions of this Section 12 will remain valid and enforceable. Further, the waivers set forth in Section 12 are severable from the other provisions of these Terms and will remain valid and enforceable, except as prohibited by applicable law.
13. These Terms will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the Bulgaria, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any Dispute between the Parties arising out or relating to these Terms or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual Disputes of claims) that is not subject to arbitration will be resolved in the Sofia City Court, Bulgaria.
14. If any term, clause or provision of these Terms is held unlawful, void or unenforceable, then that term, clause or provision will be severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining part of that term, clause or provision, or any other term, clause or provision of these Terms.
15. BAA has the right to modify these Terms if BAA reasonably believes that such modifications are necessary to comply with applicable laws or regulations or to address technical inaccuracies. If BAA makes changes, BAA will provide notice to Grantee via email to the email address Grantee provides in the Agreement. The amended Terms will be effective in 5 days as of email receipt, and Grantee’s continued use or holding of PRO Grantee accepted as a Grant shall constitute Grantee’s acceptance of the modified Terms.
16. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between Grantee and BAA relating to Grantee’s acceptance of PRO from BAA as a Grant. BAA’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. BAA will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform any obligation under these Terms where the delay or failure results from any cause beyond BAA’s reasonable control. BAA may assign its rights and obligations under these Terms. Accepting PRO from BAA as a Grant does not create any form of partnership, joint venture or any other similar relationship between Grantee and BAA. Except as otherwise provided in herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the Parties and are not intended to confer third-party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity. Grantee agrees and acknowledges that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that BAA provides to Grantee, including these Terms, may be provided in electronic form.
