12. Entire agreement

These Agreements constitute all the terms and conditions agreed upon between you and The Stand Up Comedy Clinic and supersede any prior agreements in relation to the subject matter of these Agreements, whether written or oral. Any additional or different terms or conditions in relation to the subject matter of the Agreements in any written or oral communication from you to The Stand Up Comedy Clinic are void. You represent that you have not accepted the Agreements in reliance on any oral or written representations made by The Stand Up Comedy Clinic that are not contained in the Agreements.

Please note, however, that other aspects of your use of the The Stand Up Comedy Clinic Service may be governed by additional agreements. That could include, for example, access to the The Stand Up Comedy Clinic Community for customer support, access to the The Stand Up Comedy Clinic Service as a result of a gift card, or free or discounted Trials.  To the extent that there is any conflict between those agreements and these Agreements, these Agreements shall control, except as otherwise provided in these Terms.

Occasionally we may offer you the chance to participate in sweepstakes, contests, and surveys (“Special Promotions”) through the Service. Special Promotions may be governed by terms and conditions that are separate from these Terms. If the provisions of a Special Promotion’s terms and conditions conflict with these Terms, those separate terms and conditions shall prevail.

13. Severability

Should any provision of the Terms be held invalid or unenforceable for any reason or to any extent, such invalidity or enforceability shall not in any manner affect or render invalid or unenforceable the remaining provisions of the Terms, and the application of that provision shall be enforced to the extent permitted by law.

14. Choice of law, mandatory arbitration and venue

Unless otherwise required by a mandatory law of a member state of the European Union or any other jurisdiction, these Agreements are subject to the law of the State of California, United States, without regard to choice or conflicts of law principles. Further, you and The Stand Up Comedy Clinic agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in San Francisco County, California or New York, New York to resolve any dispute, claim or controversy that arises in connection with these Agreements.

If you are a United States user, the following mandatory arbitration provisions also apply to you:

  1. You and The Stand Up Comedy Clinic agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to the The Stand Up Comedy Clinic Service or your use thereof, including our Agreements, shall be determined by mandatory binding arbitration. You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and The Stand Up Comedy Clinic are each waiving the right to a trial by jury and the right to participate in a class or multi-party action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Agreements and the termination of your The Stand Up Comedy Clinic account. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA Rules”), as modified by these Agreements, and as administered by the AAA. You and The Stand Up Comedy Clinic agree that these Agreements involve interstate commerce and are subject to the Federal Arbitration Act.
  2. You and The Stand Up Comedy Clinic agree that (a) any claims seeking to enforce, protect, or determine the validity or ownership of any intellectual property rights, and (b) any claims related to allegations of theft, piracy or unauthorized use of the The Stand Up Comedy Clinic Service are NOT subject to mandatory arbitration. Instead, you and The Stand Up Comedy Clinic agree that these claims (including but not limited to claims for injunctive or equitable relief) shall be exclusively decided by courts of competent jurisdiction in San Francisco County, California or New York, New York, and that applicable California and/or Federal law shall govern, without regard to choice of law principles.
  3. YOU AND The Stand Up Comedy Clinic AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A CLASS MEMBER OR IN ANY REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR PROCEEDING. Further, no arbitrator shall consolidate any other person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a multi-party or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable in any way, then the entirety of this arbitration section shall be null and void. The arbitrator may not award declaratory or injunctive relief.
  4. Any arbitration must be commenced by filing a demand for arbitration with the AAA within ONE (1) YEAR after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or reasonably should know of the act, omission or default giving rise to the claim; and there shall be no right to any remedy for any claim not asserted within that time period. If applicable law prohibits a one-year limitations period for asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period permitted by applicable law. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation will be limited to those fees set forth in the AAA’s Consumer Rules with the remainder paid by The Stand Up Comedy Clinic. Any arbitration costs or fees deemed “excessive” will be paid by The Stand Up Comedy Clinic.

Thank you for reading our Terms. We hope you enjoy The Stand Up Comedy Clinic.
