Any judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered only in a state or federal court located in Los Angeles, California, and You agree to submit to the jurisdiction of such court for that purpose. You and COMPANY agree that the arbitrator shall have limited authority to award damages such that the arbitrator shall not have the power to award damages in excess of those permitted under this Agreement and in no event more than actual compensatory damages. The agreement to arbitrate shall not be construed as an agreement or consolidation of arbitration between You and COMPANY under this Section with arbitration of disputes or claims of any other party, regardless of the nature of the issues or disputes involved.

iv) Waiver: The failure of either party to require performance by the other party of any provision of this agreement shall not affect in any way the first party's right to require such performance at any time thereafter. Any waiver by either party of a breach of any provision in this agreement shall not be taken or held by the other party to be a continuing waiver of that provision unless such waiver is made in writing.
v) Feedback to COMPANY:
You agreed and acknowledge that all suggestions, comments, ideas, and improvements You offer to COMPANY regarding the Website or any of COMPANY's Services are "works made for hire" for the benefit of COMPANY and You assign all right, title and interest in such to COMPANY.
