6. Resolution of Disputes and Release

For any dispute you have with Linktops, you agree to first contact us through our Feedback page and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. If Linktops has not been able to resolve the dispute with you informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms by binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes then in effect for the AAA, except as provided herein. The arbitration must be conducted in the state of Neveda where Linktops is incorporated.

Each party will be responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA rules. The prevailing party in any arbitration or other proceeding arising under this Agreement shall be entitled to receive reimbursement of its reasonable expenses (including reasonable attorneys fees, expert witness fees and all other expenses) incurred in connection therewith. Judgment upon the award so rendered must be entered in the Clark County Court jurisdiction for judicial acceptance of any award and an order of enforcement, as the case may be. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party shall have the right to institute an action only in the Clark County Court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable relief pending a final decision by the arbitrator. For all purposes of this Agreement, the parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the United States Federal Courts or state courts located in County of Clark, in the state of Nevada. Use of the Site is not authorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of the Agreement, including without limitation, this section.

You and Linktops agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to the Site (including, but not limited to Linktops products or services provided or made available therein) or this Agreement must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action arose; otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred. Nothing in this Section shall prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts for matters related to data security, intellectual property or unauthorized access to the Service.

ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES' INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND LINKTOPS ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.

Should you have a dispute with any Linktops members, visitors, or an outside party, you release Linktops (and Linktops officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. Linktops encourages members to report member-to-member disputes to your local law enforcement, postmaster general, or a certified mediation or arbitration entity, as applicable.

Linktops, for the benefit of its members, may try to help its members resolve disputes. Linktops does so in Linktops sole discretion, and Linktops has no obligation to resolve disputes between members or between members and outside parties. To the extent that Linktops attempts to resolve a dispute, Linktops will do so in good faith based solely on Linktops policies. Linktops will not make judgments regarding legal issues or claims.
