WAIVER OF CLASS RELIEF. WHETHER THE DISPUTE IS HEARD IN ARBITRATION OR IN COURT, YOU AGREE THAT YOU AND KINGPLAY WILL NOT COMMENCE AGAINST THE OTHER A CLASS ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. YOU AND KINGPLAY ARE EACH WAIVING RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
