8.     Indemnity.

You agree to indemnify, hold harmless and defend USA FIELD HOCKEY, and its affiliates and licensors,  and each of their respective officers, directors, contractors, agents, employees, successors and assigns (collectively, the “USA FIELD HOCKEY Parties”) from any liability, claim, demand, costs, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your use of the Mobile App, your breach of this Agreement, or any breach of your representations and warranties set forth herein. You shall not settle any such claim without the prior written consent of the USA FIELD HOCKEY.  These obligations will survive any termination of this Agreement.

9.     Dispute Resolution; Location and Governing Law.

This Agreement is governed by, and must be construed in accordance with, the laws of the United States and the State of Colorado, as applicable, without giving effect to their principles of conflicts of law.  By using the Mobile App, you waive any claims that may arise under the laws of other states, countries, territories or jurisdictions.

9.1.  Notice of Dispute.

For any problem or dispute that you may have with the USA FIELD HOCKEY, you acknowledge and agree that you will first give the USA FIELD HOCKEY an opportunity to resolve your problem or dispute. This includes you first sending a Notice of Dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth the name, USA Field Hockey 5540 North Academy Blvd. Suite 100 Colorado Springs, CO 80918.  You then agree to negotiate with the USA FIELD HOCKEY in good faith about your problem or dispute. This should lead to resolution, but if for some reason your problem or dispute is not resolved satisfactorily within sixty (60) days after the USA FIELD HOCKEY’s receipt of your written description of it, you agree to the further dispute resolution provisions below.

9.2. Small Claims Court:

You may litigate any dispute in small claims court in El Paso County, CO or in your own county of residence, if the dispute meets all the requirements to be heard in small claims court.  You may litigate in small claims court whether or not you negotiated informally first.

9.3. Binding Arbitration:

If you and the USA FIELD HOCKEY do not resolve any dispute by informal negotiation or in small claims court, any other effort to resolve the dispute will be conducted exclusively by binding arbitration as described in this section. You are giving up the right to litigate (or participate in as a party or class member) all disputes in court before a judge or jury. Instead, all disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act.  Any court with jurisdiction over the parties may enforce the arbitrator’s award.

9.4. Class Action Waiver:

Any proceedings to resolve or litigate any dispute in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis. Neither you nor the USA FIELD HOCKEY will seek to have any dispute heard as a class action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings.

9.5. Arbitration Procedures:

Any arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules.  You agree to commence arbitration only in your county of residence or in El Paso County, Colorado. USA FIELD HOCKEY agrees to commence arbitration only in your county of residence. You may request a telephonic or in-person hearing by following the AAA rules. In a dispute involving $10,000 or less, any hearing will be telephonic unless the arbitrator finds good cause to hold an in-person hearing instead. The arbitrator may award the same damages to you individually as a court could. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only to you individually, and only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim.

9.6 Claims Or Disputes Must Be Filed Within One Year: 

To the extent permitted by law, any claim or dispute under this agreement must be filed within one year in small claims court, or in an arbitration proceeding. The one-year period begins when the claim or Notice of Dispute first could be filed. If a claim or Notice of Dispute isn't filed within one year, it's permanently barred.

9.7 Survival: THIS SECTION SHALL SURVIVE TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT.
