(a) Non-United States residents.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, DTS may apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.  You agree to first bring your dispute or controversy to the attention of DTS and in good faith first try to settle or resolve the dispute or controversy with DTS.

(b) United States residents. ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS, OR CONTROVERSIES WITH DTS ARISING IN ANY WAY FROM THIS EULA, ASSOCIATED PRIVACY POLICY, OR YOUR USE OF THE SOFTWARE SHALL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION, AND NOT BY A COURT OR JURY.  Any such dispute shall not be combined or consolidated with any other person's or entity's claim or dispute, and specifically, without limitation of the foregoing, shall not under any circumstances proceed as part of a class action. The arbitration shall be conducted before a single arbitrator, whose award may not exceed, in form or amount, the relief allowed by the applicable law. The arbitration shall be conducted according to the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules applicable to consumer disputes. This arbitration provision is entered pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. The laws of the State of California, without reference to its choice of laws principles, shall govern the interpretation of the EULA and all disputes that are subject to this arbitration provision. The arbitrator shall decide all issues of interpretation and application of this arbitration provision and the EULA. For any arbitration in which your total damage claims, exclusive of attorney fees and expert witness fees, are $10,000.00 or less ("Small Claim"), the arbitrator may, if you prevail, award your reasonable attorney fees, expert witness fees and costs as part of any award, but may not grant DTS its attorney fees, expert witness fees or costs unless it is determined that the claim was brought in bad faith. In a Small Claim case, you shall be required to pay no more than half of the total administrative, facility and arbitrator fees, or $250.00 of such fees, whichever is less, and DTS shall pay the remainder of such fees after your payment of the fee. Administrative, facility and arbitrator fees for arbitrations in which your total damage claims, exclusive of attorney fees and expert witness fees, exceed $10,000.00 ("Large Claim") shall be determined according to JAMS rules. In a Large Claim case, the arbitrator may grant to the prevailing party, or apportion among the parties, reasonable attorney fees, expert witness fees and costs. Judgment may be entered on the arbitrator's award in any court of competent jurisdiction. This arbitration provision also applies to claims against DTS's agents, employees, representatives and affiliates if any such claim arises from the licensing or use of the Software. You may opt out of this dispute resolution procedure by providing notice to DTS no later than 30 calendar days from the date of your purchase of the Software. To opt out, you must send notice by e-mail to legal2@dts.com, with the subject line: "DTS:X Windows App Arbitration Opt Out." You must include in the opt-out e-mail: (a) your name, email and address and (b) the date on which you purchased the DTS:X Windows App.
