If you live outside of California, you waive any other statute, law, or rule of similar effect in your jurisdiction.

If you are having a problem with the Services, before bringing a formal legal case, first contact Our Customer Support team by emailing them email@example.com to address your issue. Most disputes can be resolved that way.
An arbitration proceeding is before a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge and jury, so We are all giving up Our right to a trial before a judge and jury. Arbitrations have different rules than lawsuits in court. They are less formal than lawsuits in courts, and provide limited opportunity to force the other side to share information relevant to the dispute—a process called discovery. The arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. But, if any of Us does not like the arbitrator’s decision, the courts only have a limited ability to change the outcome of arbitration or make the arbitrator reconsider his or her decision.
If We have a dispute about whether this agreement to arbitrate can be enforced or applies to Our dispute, We all agree that the arbitrator will decide that, too.
In addition, if you or Simple Solitaire Games For Free LLC brings a claim in court that should be arbitrated or any of Us refuses to arbitrate a claim that should be arbitrated, the other of Us can ask a court to force Us to go to arbitration to resolve the claim (i.e., compel arbitration). You or Simple Solitaire Games For Free LLC may also ask a court to halt a court proceeding while an arbitration proceeding is ongoing.
The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) will run the arbitration between you and Simple Solitaire Games For Free LLC, and AAA’s then-current rules and procedures (including their Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes) will be used. If something in these Terms is different than AAA’s rules and procedures, then We will follow these Terms instead. You can look at AAA’s rules and procedures on their website www.adr.org or you can call them at 1-800-778-7879.
To start an arbitration proceeding, use the form on AAA’s website (www.adr.org) or call them at 1-800-778-7879.
In addition, We all agree that We can only bring a claim against each other on an individual basis. This means that neither you nor Simple Solitaire Games For Free LLC can bring a claim as a plaintiff or class member in a class action, consolidated action or representative action. The arbitrator cannot combine more than one person’s claim into a single case, and cannot preside over any consolidated, class or representative arbitration proceeding (unless We both agree to change this). The arbitrator’s decision or award in one person’s case can only impact the person who brought the claim, not other Zynga players, and cannot be used to decide other disputes with other users.
We will give you 60-days’ notice by email or through the Service if We change Section 10 on Our Agreement to Arbitrate and Class Action Waiver.
