This Agreement shall be construed according to the laws of the State of California where my principal place of business is located.
Should we ever have a conflict, it is hoped that we could work it out amiably. However, if we are unable to seek resolution through good-faith negotiation within 30 days, we agree now that that the only method of legal dispute resolution that will be used is binding arbitration before a single arbitrator, jointly selected by both of us, unless we both agree otherwise in writing or otherwise provided by law. You understand and agree now that the only monetary damages that can be awarded to you through arbitration is the full refund of your Payment made to date. No other financial awards of consequential damages, or any other type of damages, may be granted to you. We both agree now that the decision of the arbitrator is final and binding and may be entered as a judgment into any court having the appropriate jurisdiction. You also agree that should arbitration take place, it will be held in Los Angeles County in the State of California where my principal place of business is located, and the prevailing party shall be entitled to all reasonable attorneys’ fees and all costs necessary to enforce the decision of the arbitrator.
By purchasing our Programs or Products you are agreeing to a modification of the statute of limitations such that any arbitration must be begun within one (1) year after notification to me of the dispute or you waive the right to seek dispute resolution by arbitration or to take any other legal action.
Should you have any questions or concerns about the Program or me, you agree now to contact me directly in a mature and professional way rather than to publicly make any negative or critical comments about the Program, my business or me through social media or otherwise. We both agree now not to communicate with any other individual, company or entity in a way that is harmful or disparaging to the other, whether actual or perceptual, or to do or say anything that is injurious to each other’s reputation, including about the Program, me, my business, my employees, contractors or agents, other participants. In arbitration or when required by law, of course, we are not prohibited from publicly sharing our thoughts and opinions.
