You and Spotify agree that all disputes, claims or controversies between you and Spotify, related or in any way, to these agreements or to your relationship with Spotify as users of the Service (whether based on contract, unlawful act, law, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory and whether the claims arise during or after the termination of the agreements) by any of individual arbitration (non-class) must be decided.
