  9. BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER:
  10. (Not applicable to Quebec residents) PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE OR LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN ANY FORUM WILL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. Neither you nor National Geographic will seek to have a 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 can be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to the arbitrations or proceedings.

    Any dispute that is not resolved informally between you and us (including any related dispute involving National Geographic or its affiliates, including but not limited to The Walt Disney Company) shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration administered by JAMS Mediation, Arbitration and ADR Services (“JAMS”) in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “JAMS Rules”), except (i) any dispute relating to the ownership or enforcement of intellectual property rights and (ii) any dispute within the jurisdiction of the small claims court where you reside and about which you commence such a small claims court proceeding. For the purpose of this Agreement, “dispute” includes any dispute, claim, action, or other controversy, whether based on past, present, or future events, between you and us concerning National Geographic Services, or this Agreement, whether in contract, tort, warranty, statute, regulation, or other legal or equitable basis, including any question regarding this Agreement’s arbitrability, existence, interpretation, validity, breach or termination or the business relationship created by it.

    1. In the event of a dispute, you or National Geographic must send to the other party a notice of dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving the notice, the facts giving rise to the dispute, and the relief requested. You must send any notice of dispute to National Geographic, 1145 17th Street, NW, Washington, D.C. 20036, USA, Attention: Legal. We will send any notice of dispute to you at the contact information we have for you. You and National Geographic will attempt to resolve a dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the notice of dispute is sent. After that sixty (60) day period and not before, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding. You may instead litigate a dispute in small claims court if the dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court, whether or not you negotiated informally first.

    2. If you or National Geographic do not resolve a dispute by informal negotiation or in small claims court, the dispute shall be resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with the terms set forth above before a neutral arbitrator whose decision will be final, except for a limited right of appeal under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act. YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY. The JAMS Rules and instructions about how to initiate an arbitration are available at www.jamsadr.com or 1-800-352-5267. Arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. Proceedings that cannot be conducted through the submission of documents, by phone or online, will take place in Washington, D.C. or Manhattan, New York, whichever is more convenient for the consumer; provided, however, that if circumstances prevent you from traveling to Washington, D.C. or Manhattan, New York, JAMS may hold an in-person hearing in your hometown area. You and National Geographic agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal or state courts located in Washington, D.C. or Manhattan, New York, in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. The arbitrator may award damages to you individually as a court could, including declaratory or injunctive relief, but only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim.

    In accordance with the JAMS Rules, the party initiating the arbitration (either you or National Geographic) is responsible for paying the filing fee. However, if the arbitrator issues you an award of damages and: (a) that award is greater than the amount of our last written settlement offer; or (b) if we did not make a settlement offer, then in addition to paying for any JAMS Case Management Fees and all professional fees for the arbitrator’s services, we will reimburse you for the filing fees you incurred.

    Except as provided above with respect to jurisdiction in Washington, D.C. or Manhattan New York, nothing in this arbitration provision shall be construed as consent by National Geographic, or its affiliates to the jurisdiction of any other court with regard to disputes, claims, or controversies unrelated to the Disney Service, National Geographic Service, or this Agreement.

  11. ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS:
    1. Information and Entertainment Purposes Only. You understand and agree that the National Geographic Content you receive through your subscription service is intended for informational and entertainment purposes only; it does not constitute legal, financial, professional, medical, or healthcare advice or diagnosis and cannot be used for such purposes.
    2. Content Subjectivity. National Geographic Content tends to elicit varying reactions among different people. You may come across National Geographic Content that you find offensive, indecent, explicit or objectionable. You acknowledge these risks and your responsibility for making your own choices regarding what National Geographic Content is appropriate for your family.
    3. Promotional and Experimental Features. In our continued assessment of the National Geographic Subscription Services, we may from time to time, with respect to any or all of our subscribers, experiment or otherwise offer certain features or other elements, including promotional features, user interfaces, plans and pricing. Your use of any features, updates, modifications to, or replacement versions of the National Geographic Subscription Services shall be governed by this Subscriber Agreement and any additional terms you agree to when you install, purchase or use such feature, update, modification, or replacement version.
    4. Third-Party Services and Content. The National Geographic Subscription Services may integrate, be integrated into, or be provided in connection with third-party services and content. We do not control those third-party services and content. You should read the terms of use agreements and privacy policies that apply to such third-party services and content. If you access the App using an Apple iOS, Android or Microsoft Windows-powered device, Apple Inc., Google, Inc. or Microsoft Corporation, respectively, shall be a third-party beneficiary to this Agreement. However, these third-party beneficiaries are not a party to this Agreement. You agree that your access to the App using these devices also shall be subject to the usage terms set forth in the applicable third-party beneficiary's terms of service.
    5. App and Mobile Networks. By downloading, installing, starting or using the App, you agree to receive automatic updates. When you access the App through a mobile network, your network or roaming provider's messaging, data and other rates and fees will apply. Downloading, installing or using the App may be prohibited or restricted by your network provider and the App may not work with your network provider or device.
    6. Internet Access. You must have internet access to use the National Geographic website and App. You are responsible for all third-party Internet access charges and taxes in connection with your use of the National Geographic website or App. Please check with your Internet provider for information on possible Internet data usage charges.
    7. Submissions and Unsolicited Ideas Policies. Our policy does not allow us to accept or consider unsolicited creative ideas, suggestions, or materials. In connection with anything you submit to us, whether or not solicited by us, you agree that creative ideas, suggestions or other materials you submit are not being made in confidence or trust and that no confidential or fiduciary relationship is intended or created between you and us in any way, and that you have no expectation of review, compensation, or consideration of any type. National Geographic does not claim ownership over any ideas, suggestions, or other materials submitted, however, as to such materials, you grant us a non-exclusive, sublicensable, irrevocable and royalty-free worldwide license under all copyrights, trademarks, patents, trade secrets, privacy and publicity rights and other intellectual property rights to use, reproduce, transmit, display, create derivative works or otherwise exploit them for any purpose without limit as to time, manner and frequency of use, without further notice to you, with or without attribution, and without the requirement of permission from or payment to you or any other person or entity. Additionally, you waive any so called moral rights in such submissions and unsolicited ideas (if any), even if such material is altered or changed in a manner not agreeable to you.

    8. DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTY; LIABILITY LIMITATION. You acknowledge and agree to the essential condition that the National Geographic Subscription Services are provided "as is" and without warranties of any kind. To the fullest extent permitted by law, National Geographic, its affiliates, licensors, agents, and service providers (collectively, the "National Geographic Parties") each expressly disclaims any warranties and conditions, express, implied, or statutory, including but not limited to, warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, accuracy, completeness, availability, security, compatibility, satisfactory quality and non-infringement, and their equivalents under the laws of any jurisdiction. You also acknowledge and agree that the National Geographic Parties do not warrant that the National Geographic Subscription Services will be without errors, and in the case of digital content, viruses or other harmful components. The National Geographic Parties do not warrant or otherwise state that the National Geographic Subscription Services will meet your requirements. You and not the National Geographic Parties assume the entire cost of all necessary servicing, repair or correction occasioned by use of digital versions of National Geographic Content and the National Geographic Subscription Services. Some provinces, territories and other jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so the above exclusion may not apply to you.

      To the extent not prohibited by applicable law, in no event shall the National Geographic Parties be liable for any personal injury, or any indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages of any kind, including lost profits and property damage, even if we were advised of the possibility of such damages, that result from the use of, or inability to use the National Geographic Content or the National Geographic Subscription Services, however caused. Nor shall we be held liable for delay or failure in performance resulting from causes beyond our reasonable control. In no event shall our total liability to you for all damages, losses and causes of action exceed One Thousand Canadian Dollars (CA $1,000). The liability limitations in this section apply under any legal theory (tort, contract, breach of warranty, strict liability or otherwise) even if the National Geographic Parties have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Because some provinces, territories and other jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability, the above limitation may not apply to you. (For Quebec residents only): The foregoing paragraph does not apply to damages that result from the acts of the National Geographic Parties.

    9. Choice of Forum. (Not applicable to Quebec residents) You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to this Agreement that is not subject to arbitration or commenced in small claims court where you reside shall be filed, and that venue properly lies only in the state or federal courts located in Manhattan, New York, United States of America and you consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating such action.
    10. Choice of Law. (Not applicable to Quebec residents) This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of New York and the laws of the United States, without giving effect to any conflict of law principles.
    11. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from the Agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
    12. Survival. The provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive the termination of this Agreement shall survive such termination.
    13. Entire Agreement. This Subscriber Agreement and the provisions referenced herein, constitute the entire agreement between you and National Geographic pertaining to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior or other arrangements, understandings, negotiations and discussions, whether oral or written. No waiver of any of the provisions of the Subscriber Agreement shall be deemed or shall constitute a waiver of any other provisions hereof (whether or not similar), nor shall such waiver constitute a continuing waiver unless otherwise expressly provided.
