Please Read the Following Clause Carefully - It May Significantly Affect Your Legal Rights, Including Your Right to File a Lawsuit in Court
Initial Dispute Resolution. We are available by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to address any concerns you may have regarding your use of the Service. Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner. Each of you and we agree to use best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
Agreement to Binding Arbitration. If we do not reach an agreed upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is pursued pursuant the immediately preceding paragraph, then either party may initiate binding arbitration. All claims arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service (including their formation, performance and breach), your and our relationship and/or your use of the Service shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by JAMS (Los Angeles, CA office), in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. Each party will have the right to use legal counsel in connection with arbitration at its own expense. You and we shall select a single neutral arbitrator in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms of Service, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of these Terms of Service is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator's award shall be in writing and provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions, shall be binding on you and us and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The interpretation and enforcement of these Terms of Service shall be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act.
The JAMS rules governing the arbitration may be accessed at https://www.jamsadr.com/adr-rules-procedures. If you initiate arbitration, you shall pay for any costs and expenses associate with the arbitration. If we are required to pay any of the arbitration filing fees, you should submit a request for payment of fees to JAMS along with your form for initiating the arbitration, and if the arbitrator determines that such fees should be paid by us, we will use our commercially reasonable efforts to make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to JAMS. We will also not be responsible whatsoever for paying any other arbitration costs arising in connection with the arbitration initiated by you, other than costs incurred by you or your behalf for legal counsel, travel and other out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred by you or on your behalf. You may be required to pay fees and costs incurred by us if you do not prevail in arbitration.
You and we understand that, absent this mandatory provision, you and we would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. You and we further understand that the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
Class Action and Class Arbitration Waiver. You and we each further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in our respective individual capacities only and not as a class action, and you and we each expressly waive our respective right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and you and we shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
Exception - Small Claims Court Claims. Notwithstanding your and our agreement to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either you or we may seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court's jurisdiction.
Exception - California Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA) Action. Notwithstanding your and our agreement to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either you or we may seek relief in a court of law for a claim arising under California's Private Attorneys General Act.
Exclusive Venue for Litigation. To the extent that the arbitration provisions set forth above do not apply or if you have opted out of arbitration, you and we agree that any litigation between you and us shall be filed exclusively in state or federal courts located in the County of Los Angeles, State of California (including any small claims court actions). You and we expressly consent to exclusive jurisdiction in County of Los Angeles, State of California for any litigation. In the event of litigation relating to these Terms of Service or the Service, you and we agree to waive, to the maximum extent permitted by law, any right to a jury trial, except where a jury trial waiver is not permissible under applicable law.

Further, the use or availability of certain LiveOne Apps and other Services may be prohibited or restricted by your wireless carrier and/or data access provider, and not all LiveOne Apps and other Services may work with all wireless carriers, networks, platforms, services or devices.

We will promptly notify you of any such claim. LiveOne Entities reserve the right, at their own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you and all negotiation for its settlement or compromise (as applicable), and in each such case, you agree to fully cooperate with us upon our request.
