11. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
These Terms are governed by, construed, and enforced in accordance with the internal laws of the State of California without giving effect to the principles of conflicts of laws of such state and are binding upon the parties hereto in the United States and worldwide. You and Pebble Beach Company agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to interpreting or constructing these Terms.
YOU AND PEBBLE BEACH COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH 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.
YOU AND PEBBLE BEACH COMPANY AGREE THAT ALL CLAIMS WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION IN THE MANNER SPECIFIED IN THIS SECTION 10 AND THAT YOU AND PEBBLE BEACH COMPANY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO BRING SUCH CLAIMS BEFORE ANY COURT OF LAW. RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY BE UNAVAILABLE OR LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
Any dispute between you and Pebble Beach Company and its agents, employees, officers, directors, principals, successors, assigns, subsidiaries, or affiliates arising from or relating to these Terms and their interpretation or the breach, termination, or validity thereof, the relationships which result from these Terms, including disputes about the validity, scope or enforceability of these Terms to arbitration (collectively, “Covered Disputes “) will be settled by binding arbitration in the State of California administered by the American Arbitration Association (A.A.A.) in accordance with its rules (including its rules and procedures for consumer-related disputes) in effect on the date thereof (“A.A.A. Rules”). Before initiating any arbitration, the initiating party will give the other party at least 60 days advanced written notice of its intent to file for arbitration. Pebble Beach Company will provide such notice by email to the email address you provided when you created your Profile, and you must provide such notice to Pebble Beach Company by email at [email protected].
The A.A.A. Rules will govern payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees. If, however, you can demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive for you as compared to the costs of litigation, Pebble Beach Company will pay as much of the filing, administration, and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive for you. If the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration are frivolous, you agree to reimburse Pebble Beach Company for all fees associated with the arbitration that Pebble Beach Company paid on your behalf, which you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the A.A.A. Rules.
A single arbitrator will be selected in accordance with the A.A.A. Rules. The arbitration shall be conducted in the English language. The arbitrator will have the power to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity, and any award of the arbitrator will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator will not, however, have the power to award punitive or exemplary damages, the right to which each party hereby waives. The arbitrator will apply applicable law and the provisions of these Terms, and the failure to do so will be deemed an excess of arbitral authority and grounds for judicial review. The arbitrator’s decision must be with written explanation and remain confidential. Pebble Beach Company and you agree that any Covered Dispute will be submitted to arbitration individually. If any provision of the agreement to arbitrate in this Section 10 is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced (but in no case will a class, representative, or private attorney general arbitration per permitted hereunder). Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, notice on any claim arising from or related to these Terms must be made within one (1) year after such claim arose or be forever barred. For purposes of this Section 10, these Terms and related transactions will be subject to and governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (F.A.A.).

16.5 If Pebble Beach Company fails or you fail to perform any obligation under these Terms, and the other party does not enforce such obligation, the failure to enforce on any occasion will not constitute a waiver of any obligation and will not prevent enforcement on any other occasion.

16.7 If Pebble Beach Company is or you are prevented from performing or unable to perform any obligation under these Terms due to any cause beyond the reasonable control of the party invoking this provision, the affected party’s performance will be extended for the period of delay or inability to perform due to such cause.
