Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms, including the formation, interpretation, breach or termination thereof, including whether the claims asserted are arbitrable, will be referred to and finally determined by arbitration in accordance with the JAMS International Arbitration Rules.

This arbitration provision shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction in San Francisco County, California, or if such proceeding cannot be lawfully held in such location, as near thereto as applicable law permits.
