IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH THE SITE, THE CONTENT OR WITH THESE TERMS, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IS TO DISCONTINUE USING THE SITE.

You agree that the laws of the District of Columbia, USA, without regard to conflicts of laws principles, govern the existence and construction of these Terms and any dispute that may arise between you and DittyTV, and that any dispute or claim arising out of or in relation to your access to or use of the Site or to products or services sold or distributed by DittyTV or through the Site will be exclusively resolved by binding arbitration as provided in these Terms.
Arbitration will take place before a single arbitrator and will be administered by JAMS in accordance with the United States Arbitration Act and the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures then in effect, as modified by these Terms. Any in-person arbitration will take place in Washington, DC. If the parties cannot agree upon the choice of an arbitrator within twenty (20) business days of the date the matter is submitted for arbitration, the parties shall request, and accept, assignment of an arbitrator from JAMS pursuant to its rules. The arbitrator shall have authority to award any remedy or relief that a court of competent jurisdiction in the District of Columbia could grant in conformity to applicable law, subject to the limitations set forth in this Agreement. Any arbitration award shall be accompanied by a written statement containing a summary of the issues in controversy and a description of the award, with an explanation of the reasons for the award. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding, and judgment may be entered upon such award by any court of competent jurisdiction.
Unless otherwise provided in JAMS rules or the arbitration award, you and DittyTV will equally divide all administrative fees and expenses for any arbitration, including the arbitrator’s fees and expenses, and each party will bear the cost of preparing and presenting its own case. Each dispute will be arbitrated on an individual basis and will not be consolidated in any action with the disputes or claims of other consumers or customers. Any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms must be brought within two years of the date on which the basis for the dispute or claim first arises, or such longer period as may be required by law. If, notwithstanding these Terms, a claim proceeds in court rather than arbitration, you and DittyTV each waive any right to a jury trial. Notwithstanding this dispute resolution provision, DittyTV shall have the right to seek and obtain preliminary injunctive or other provisional relief from a court of competent jurisdiction for the purpose of preventing irreparable injury, loss or damage pending a final resolution according to this dispute resolution provision.

These Terms, as they may be amended from time to time, set forth the entire understanding of you and DittyTV as to the subject matter hereof. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court or arbitrator of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of the Terms shall remain in full force and effect and all provisions shall be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law. Any waiver of any provision of these Terms must be in writing and shall not constitute a continuing waiver or a waiver of any other provision. A printed version of these Terms and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in arbitration or in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
