6.2. Limitation of Liability.
6.2.1 IN NO EVENT WILL THE NBCUNIVERSAL PARTIES’ AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU IN CONNECTION WITH NBCUNIVERSAL SERVICES OR THESE TOS EXCEED (i) THE AMOUNT (IF ANY) PAID BY YOU TO NBCUNIVERSAL IN THE SIX MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT WHICH GAVE RISE TO THE LIABILITY; OR (ii) ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100), WHICHEVER IS LESS. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL THE THIRD-PARTY PLATFORM PROVIDERS OR THEIR RESPECTIVE AFFILIATES, VENDORS, AGENTS AND SUPPLIERS, AS APPLICABLE, GIVE ANY WARRANTY, HAVE ANY RESPONSIBILITY OR HAVE ANY LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO YOUR USE OF THE NBCUNIVERSAL SERVICES.

THE FOREGOING LIMITATION APPLIES (x) WHETHER THE ALLEGED LIABILITY IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND EVEN IF NBCUNIVERSAL HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE; AND (y) TO ANY DAMAGES OR INJURY ARISING FROM ANY COMPUTER VIRUS, FILE CORRUPTION, OR THEFT, DESTRUCTION, UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO, ALTERATION OF, USE OF ANY DATA OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES.

IN ADDITION, BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT PERMIT THE DISCLAIMER OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES, THE DISCLAIMERS SET FORTH ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
6.3. Exclusions. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ANY DAMAGES YOU INCUR ARISING OUT OF THE ACTS OR OMISSIONS OF THE NBCUNIVERSAL PARTIES OR YOUR USE OF THE NBCUNIVERSAL SERVICES ARE NOT IRREPARABLE AND ARE INSUFFICIENT TO ENTITLE YOU TO AN INJUNCTION OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF RESTRICTING THE AVAILABILITY OF OR ANY PERSON’S ABILITY TO ACCESS ANY PORTION OF THE NBCUNIVERSAL SERVICES OR THE DISPLAY, PERFORMANCE OR DISTRIBUTION OF OUR CONTENT.
6.4. Indemnification. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the NBCUniversal Parties from and against any and all claims, demands, actions, suits or proceedings, as well as any and all losses, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses (including reasonable legal fees and costs) arising out of or related to (i) any breach of these TOS; (ii) User-Generated Content; and/or (iii) your use of the NBCUniversal Services or any use of your account via the NBCUniversal Services.
7.1. If you have a Dispute (as defined below) with us that cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court, you will not have the right to pursue a claim in court or have a jury decide the claim, and you will not have the right to bring or participate in any class action or similar proceeding in court or in arbitration. By using or interacting with the NBCUniversal Services, or engaging in any other NBCUniversal Transactions or Relationships with us, you agree as follows:
7.2.“Dispute” means any complaint, dispute, or disagreement you may have against us, and any claim that we may have against you, whether based on past, present, or future events, arising out of or related in any way to these TOS or regarding (i) your use of or interaction with the NBCUniversal Services, (ii) any purchases or other transactions or relationships related to your use of the NBCUniversal Services, or (iii) any data or information you provide to us or we gather in connection with such use, interaction or transaction (collectively, "NBCUniversal Transactions or Relationships").
7.3. Many Disputes can be resolved by an informal dialogue with our customer service staff. If you have a Dispute with us, before initiating an arbitration, you must send an individualized, written notice describing the Dispute to the customer support contact via email or contact form associated with the NBCUniversal Service to which your Dispute relates. Without limiting any of our rights in Section 4, before we initiate any arbitration, we will send you a written notice using contact information we have for you. Promptly following receipt of such notice, you and we will try to resolve the Dispute by individual telephone or videoconference, or in person if you and we agree. If the Dispute is not resolved within 14 days of starting this dialogue, then either you or we may initiate an action in a small claims court that has jurisdiction over the Dispute and is reasonably close to your place of residence or work, or initiate an arbitration as described below if the Dispute is ineligible to be adjudicated in small claims court.
7.4. Any Dispute that we are unable to resolve through the informal procedure described above and is ineligible for small claims court shall be resolved exclusively by final, binding arbitration ("Arbitration") before a single arbitrator administered by JAMS or its successor ("JAMS") and conducted in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules And Procedures (or, if the amount in controversy exceeds $250,000, the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules And Procedures) in effect at the time the Arbitration is initiated (respectively, the "Applicable Rules"). The Applicable Rules can be found at www.jamsadr.com. This Section 7 shall not prevent any party from seeking provisional remedies (that is, a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction) from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. You further agree that:
7.4.1.No Class Relief. The Arbitration can resolve only your and our individual claims, and the Arbitrator shall have no authority to entertain or arbitrate any claims on a class or representative basis, or to consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated. Notwithstanding any other provision of these TOS or the JAMs Applicable Rules, disputes regarding the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this class waiver may be resolved only by a court and not by an arbitrator. If this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither you nor we are entitled to arbitration.
7.4.2. Arbitrator Will Interpret This Agreement.The Arbitrator shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising under or relating to the validity, interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these TOS and/or these arbitration provisions in this Section 7, including any claim that all or any part of these TOS is void or voidable, except as expressly provided above in 7.4.1.
7.4.3. Location of Arbitration. The Arbitration shall be held either: (i) at a location determined under the Applicable Rules that is reasonably convenient for you and is no more than 100 miles from your home or place of business; or (ii) at another location you and we agree upon. If the only claims asserted in the Arbitration are for less than $25,000 in aggregate, the Arbitration may be held by telephone or written submission.
7.4.4. Arbitration Costs. If the Arbitrator finds that the costs of Arbitration will be prohibitive for you as compared to the costs of litigation, we will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in the Arbitration as the Arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the Arbitration from being cost-prohibitive, regardless of the outcome of the Arbitration, unless the Arbitrator determines that your claim(s) were frivolous or asserted in bad faith.
7.4.5. Interpretation and Enforcement of Arbitration Clause. Except for 7.4.1 above, if any provision of these TOS is unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these TOS and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. But if 7.4.1 is found to be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then this entire arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor we will be entitled to arbitrate any dispute between us and you, and must instead bring any claims subject to subsection 7.4.9 below.
7.4.6. Opt out. You may opt out of this arbitration agreement. If you do so, neither you nor NBCUniversal can force the other to arbitrate. To opt out, you must notify NBCUniversal within 30 days of first becoming subject to this arbitration agreement by clicking here and following the instructions provided. Your notice must include your name and address and a clear statement that you want to opt out of this arbitration agreement.
7.4.7. Modification of Arbitration Clause With Notice. Any modification of these arbitration provisions shall apply only on a prospective basis for claims arising from or relating to NBCUniversal Transactions and Relationships occurring after the effective date of such modifications. If any modification is deemed to be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then the arbitration provisions effective at the time of your agreement to these TOS shall govern any dispute or disagreement between you and us regarding NBCUniversal Transactions or Relationships.
7.4.8. Dispute Resolution Only If A Tribunal Has Ruled That Arbitration Is Prohibited. If a court with appropriate jurisdiction prohibits arbitration of a dispute in accordance with this Section 7, then the state or federal courts in New York shall have non-exclusive jurisdiction over the dispute, and to the maximum extent permitted by the mandatory laws in your country of residence, these TOS and any dispute arising out of or related in any way to these TOS or their subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes), will be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York and the United States, without giving effect to any conflict of law principles.
8.1. Applicable Law. These TOS, any Supplemental Terms, and the relationship between you and us shall be governed by the laws of the U.S. and the State of New York without regard to its conflicts of law provisions. Except as provided in applicable Supplemental Terms, you agree that the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to your use of the NBCUniversal Services or these TOS. You are responsible for complying with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. You specifically agree to comply with all applicable laws concerning the transmission of technical data exported from the United States or the country in which you reside.
8.2. Venue. Subject to the arbitration provisions above, and other than small claims actions permitted there, any action or proceeding arising from, relating to or in connection with these TOS will be brought exclusively in the federal or state courts located in New York County, New York, and you irrevocably consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts and agree that it is a convenient forum and that you will not seek to transfer such action or proceeding to any other forum or jurisdiction, under the doctrine of forum non conveniens or otherwise.

8.5. Severability. Unless otherwise expressly provided herein, the invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these TOS will not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision, all of which will remain in full force and effect.
