15.2 Governing Law. 


These terms and conditions shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New Jersey, USA, and applicable federal laws without regard to conflicts of law principles. 


15.3 Arbitration. 


a) Procedures. You and ADP agree that, except as provided in Section 15.3(d) below, all disputes, controversies and claims related to these Terms (each a “Claim“), shall be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration, which may be initiated by either party by sending a written notice requesting arbitration to the other party. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other. The arbitration will be conducted under the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (the “JAMS Rules“) and under the terms set forth in these Terms. In the event of a conflict between the terms set forth in this Section 15.3 and the JAMS Rules, the terms in this Section 15.3 will control and prevail. Except as otherwise set forth in Section 15.3, you may seek any remedies available to you under federal, state or local laws in an arbitration action. As part of the arbitration, both you and ADP will have the opportunity for discovery of non-privileged information that is relevant to the Claim. The arbitrator will provide a written statement of the arbitrator’s decision regarding the Claim, the award given and the arbitrator’s findings and conclusions on which the arbitrator’s decision is based. The determination of whether a Claim is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator. Except as otherwise provided in these Terms, (i) you and ADP may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator, and (ii) the arbitrator’s decision shall be final, binding on all parties and enforceable in any court that has jurisdiction, provided that any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to follow applicable law. BY AGREEING TO THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU AND ADP WAIVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. 


b) Location. The arbitration will take place in Roseland, New Jersey, unless the parties agree to video, phone and/or internet connection appearances. 


c) Limitations. You and ADP agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Claim between ADP and you individually. YOU AND ADP AGREE THAT (I) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS-ACTION BASIS OR TO UTILIZE CLASS ACTION PROCEDURES, (II) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, AND (III) NO ARBITRATION SHALL BE JOINED WITH ANY OTHER ARBITRATION. 


d) Exceptions to Arbitration. You and ADP agree that the following Claims are not subject to arbitration: (i) any Claim seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or ADP’s intellectual property rights, (ii) any Claim related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy or unauthorized use, and (iii) any claim for equitable relief. In addition to the foregoing, either party may assert an individual action in small claims court for Claims that are within the scope of such court’s jurisdiction in lieu of arbitration. 


e) Arbitration Fees. If you initiate arbitration for a Claim, you will need to pay the JAMS arbitration initiation fee. If we are initiating arbitration for a Claim, we will pay all costs charged by JAMS for initiating the arbitration. All other fees and costs of the arbitration will be charged pursuant to the JAMS Rules. 


f) Severability. You and ADP agree that if any portion this Section 15.3 is found illegal or unenforceable (except any portion of Section 15.3(d)), that portion shall be severed and the remainder of this Section shall be given full force and effect. If Section 15.3(d) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither you nor ADP will elect to arbitrate any Claim falling within that portion of Section 15.3(d) found to be illegal or unenforceable, and such Claim shall be exclusively decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within Essex County, State of New Jersey, United States of America, and you and ADP agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court. 


15.4 Notice. 


Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, any notices or other communications to ADP shall be in writing and shall be given via personal delivery, overnight courier or via U.S. Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested to 1 ADP Boulevard, Roseland, NJ 07068 Attn: General Counsel. All such notices shall be deemed given and effective on the day when delivered by overnight delivery service or certified mail. 


15.5 Waiver. 


The failure of ADP to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Any waiver of any provision of these Terms will be effective only if in writing and signed by ADP. 


15.6 Severability. 


If any provision of these Terms or any policies is held to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, then that provision will be limited or eliminated from these Terms to the minimum extent necessary and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. 


15.7 Assignment. 


These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you under any circumstances, but may be assigned by ADP without restriction, including by operation of law, or in connection with merger, sale of stock or assets, or change of control. Any assignment attempted to be made by you in violation of these Terms shall be null and void. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.

15.9 Independent Contractors.
