LEGAL DISPUTES POLICY


We value our relationships with our supported Merchants and the buyer relationships we enable. We will endeavor to resolve any disputes among us in a professional manner without the need for escalation outside the community. In the event, however, that any claim or dispute at law or equity has arisen or may arise between us relating in any way to or arising out of this or previous versions of the 11 Main Terms of Use (hereafter "Agreement" in this section entitled "Legal Disputes"), your use of or access to 11 Main's sites, services, applications, and tools, or any products or services sold or purchased through 11 Main’s sites, services, applications, or tools will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Legal Disputes Policy. Please read this Policy carefully. It affects your rights and will have a substantial impact on how claims you and we have against each other are resolved.

1. PROHIBITION OF CLASS AND REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS AND NON-INDIVIDUALIZED RELIEF

Each of us may bring claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding. Unless both you and 11 Main agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate or join more than one person's or party's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a consolidated, representative, or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that party's individual claim(s). Any relief awarded cannot affect other 11 Main users.

2. APPLICABLE LAW; VENUE

California law will govern this Agreement, except for the body of law relating to conflicts of law. The venue for any legal action will be the state courts of Butte County, California, or the federal courts of the Northern District of California. The parties waive trial by jury. You and 11 Main agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Butte County, California, United States for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.
