BOTH YOUR AND SONY’S LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE PRICE PAID FOR PRODUCT. IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER YOU OR SONY BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM PERFORMANCE OR FAILURE TO PERFORM UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, OR FROM THE FURNISHING, PERFORMANCE OR USE OF ANY PRODUCTS, GOODS OR SERVICE SOLD PURSUANT HERETO, WHETHER DUE TO A BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, NEGLIGENCE, OR OTHERWISE. NEITHER YOU NOR SONY SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY TO THE OTHER FOR INDIRECT OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OR FOR ANY CLAIM BY ANY THIRD PARTY EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED HEREIN.
Prices do not include any sales, local or other similar taxes. Where applicable, taxes will be shown on and added to your invoice. All such taxes shall be paid by you.
You certify and agree that you are purchasing Product(s) for your own personal use only and not for resale. You shall not resell Products or remove components from Product for resale.
Title to Product(s) other than software passes from Sony to you upon shipment from Sony’s facility. Title to software shall remain with the applicable licensor(s).
“Dispute” is defined as any disagreement, cause of action, claim, controversy, or proceeding between you and any Sony related to or arising out of the sale of the Product by Sony, your purchase and/or use of the Product, or the terms of this Agreement. Dispute is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced.
You and Sony agree that all Disputes shall be resolved exclusively through binding arbitration. YOU UNDERSTAND AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE (OR PARTICIPATE IN AS A PARTY OR CLASS MEMBER) ANY DISPUTES IN COURT. You also agree that ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDING WILL ONLY CONSIDER YOUR INDIVIDUAL CLAIMS, AND BOTH PARTIES AGREE NOT TO HAVE ANY DISPUTE HEARD AS A CLASS ACTION, REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, CONSOLIDATED ACTION, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION. Despite the above, you have the right to litigate any Dispute on an individual basis in small claims court or other similar court of limited jurisdiction, to the extent the amount at issue does not exceed $15,000, and as long as such court has proper jurisdiction and all other requirements (including amount in controversy) are satisfied.
Arbitration Instructions. To begin Arbitration, either you or Sony must make a written demand to the other for arbitration. The Arbitration will take place before a single arbitrator. It will be administered in keeping with the Expedited Procedures of the Commercial Arbitration Rules, and the Supplementary Proceedings for Consumer-Related disputes when applicable (“Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in effect when the claim is filed. You may get a copy of AAA’s Rules by contacting AAA at 1-800-778-7879 or visiting www.adr.org. The filing fees to begin and carry out arbitration will be shared between you and Sony, but in no event shall your fees ever exceed the amount allowable by the special rules for Consumers Disputes provided for by AAA, at which point Sony will cover all additional administrative fees and expenses. This does not prohibit the Arbitrator from giving the winning party their fees and expenses of the arbitration when appropriate pursuant to the Rules. Unless you and Sony agree differently, the arbitration will take place in the county and state where you live, and applicable federal or state law shall govern the substance of any Dispute during the arbitration. However, the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq., will govern the arbitration itself and not any state law on arbitration. If you purchase the Product in the United States, but subsequently live outside of the United States, arbitration will take place in the county in which you purchased the Product. The Arbitrator’s decision will be binding and final, except for a limited right of appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim, and any court with jurisdiction over the parties may enforce the arbitrator’s decision.
Opt-Out Instructions. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THE BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISION, THEN: (1) you must notify Sony in writing within 30 days of the date that you purchased the Product; (2) your written notification must be mailed to Sony Electronics Inc., 16535 Via Esprillo, MZ 1105, San Diego CA 92127, Attn: Legal Department; AND (3) your written notification must include (a) your NAME, (b) your ADDRESS, (c) the DATE you purchased the Product, and (d) a clear statement that “YOU DO NOT WISH TO RESOLVE DISPUTES WITH ANY SONY ELECTRONICS ENTITY THROUGH ARBITRATION AND/OR BE BOUND BY THE CLASS ACTION WAIVER.”
Opting out of this dispute resolution procedure will not affect the coverage of the Limited Warranty in any way, and you will continue to enjoy the benefits of the Limited Warranty.
