Arbitration; No Class Actions
Except if You opt-out or for disputes relating to: (1) Semihandmade’s intellectual property (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights and patents); or (2) Your violations of provisions “Semihandmade’s Rights; User’s Rights for User Content,” above, You agree that all disputes between You and Semihandmade (whether or not such dispute involves a third party) with regard to Your relationship with Semihandmade, including without limitation disputes related to these Terms, Your use of the Services, and/or rights of privacy and/or publicity, will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration under the American Arbitration Association's rules for arbitration of consumer-related disputes and You and Semihandmade hereby expressly waive trial by jury.

You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person's account, if Semihandmade is a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. In the event the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred and sixty (160) days of filing the case, then either Semihandmade or You can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms.
You may opt out of this agreement to arbitrate. If You do so properly, neither You nor Semihandmade can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, You must notify us in writing within 30 days of the date that You first became subject to this arbitration provision. You must use this address to opt out:
