Notwithstanding the foregoing binding arbitration procedure, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court (provided the claim otherwise qualifies for such a program) as an alternative to proceeding with arbitration.

Your request to be excluded will only be effective and enforceable if you can prove the request was postmarked within the applicable 15-day deadline.
24. Alternative Jurisdiction
If any court of competent jurisdiction finds these arbitration and/or class action waiver provisions invalid or inapplicable, you agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in San Diego, California, and the related appellate courts, in any related action or proceeding. Further, you irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of, and venue in, the state and federal courts in San Diego, California, and the related appellate courts, in any related action or proceeding and agree shall to not raise any claims as to San Diego, California being an inconvenient forum.
