If you booked a table but can no longer attend, please cancel the booking as soon as possible. No shows will result in table booking functionality being removed from your Discotech account.

15. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY:
Arbitration facilitates the prompt and efficient resolution of any dispute that may arise between you and Discotech. Arbitration is a type of dispute resolution where the parties engage an arbitrator to weigh in on their dispute instead of having it settled in court by a judge or jury trial. You can opt-out of this Arbitration Agreement (as explained below) to maintain your right to litigate your disputes in court.
By entering into this Arbitration Agreement, you agree to waive your right to litigate your claims in front of a judge or jury. You understand that in arbitration, there is typically no court review of an arbitration award and the arbitrator must make a decision based off of what is written in this Arbitration Agreement.
For the purpose of this Arbitration Agreement, “Discotech” means Discotech and its parents, subsidiaries, and affiliated companies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents. The term “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Discotech regarding any aspect of your relationship with Discotech and is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced.
YOU AND DISCOTECH AGREE THAT ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, WHETHER BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
B. Exclusions From Arbitration And Your Right To Opt Out.
You have the option to bring a Dispute in court and not by arbitration if (a) the Dispute qualifies, it may be initiated in small claims court in your state of residence; or (b) YOU OPT-OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT YOU FIRST CONSENT TO THIS AGREEMENT. You may opt out of this Arbitration Agreement by mailing written notification to Discotech, 6477 Deep Dell Pl. Los Angeles CA 90068. Your opt-out notice must include your full name and your clear intent to opt-out of binding arbitration.
JAMS will arbitrate all Disputes in front of a single arbitrator. The arbitration will be an individual arbitration and under no circumstances will the arbitration be commenced as a class arbitration. The arbitrator will decide all issues brought by the parties. In the event this Arbitration Agreement conflicts with the arbitration rules, this Arbitration Agreement will govern. You agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) should govern the arbitrability of all Disputes.
You and Discotech agree that any Dispute must be commenced within one (1) year of the date the Dispute arose or else the claim is permanently barred. You and Discotech agree that (a) any arbitration will occur in Los Angeles County, California, (b) arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator and (c) that the state or federal courts of the State of California and the United States, respectively, sitting in Los Angeles County, California, have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award. If applicable, you also have the option to litigate a Dispute in the small claims court in the county of your address.
E. Class Action Waiver.
YOU AND DISCOTECH AGREE THAT THERE WILL BE NO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ARBITRATION IN WHICH AN INDIVIDUAL PERSON ATTEMPTS TO RESOLVE A DISPUTE AS A REPRESENTATIVE OF OTHER INDIVIDUALS. YOU AND DISCOTECH AGREE THAT DISPUTES CANNOT BE RESOLVED AS CLASS ACTIONS, WHETHER BY ARBITRATION, LITIGATION, OR OTHERWISE.
If any portion of this Arbitration Agreement (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that portion will be severed from this Arbitration Agreement, and the remainder of this Arbitration Agreement will be given full force and effect.
This Arbitration Agreement shall survive the termination of your contract with Discotech and your use of our Services.
16. GOVERNING LAW AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION.
These Terms are governed by the laws of California, without resort to its conflict of law provisions. In the event the arbitration provision above does not apply, you agree that any claim relating to these Terms will be filed only in the state and federal courts located in Los Angeles, California and you irrevocably and unconditionally consent to the jurisdiction of such courts to hear such claim.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us relating to your access to and use of our Services. These Terms may not be transferred or assigned by you without our prior written consent. No waiver of any provision of these Terms will constitute a waiver of such provision in any prior, concurrent or subsequent circumstance. These Terms are for the benefit of the parties and do not confer third party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.
