13. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration.
13.1 Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and
Sponsor in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and Sponsor agree
use of, and access to, the Service will be resolved by binding arbitration.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a
neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited
discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts.
Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Our
agreement to arbitrate disputes includes, but is not limited to all claims
contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory,
and regardless of whether the claims arise during or after the termination of
OF USE, YOU AND SPONSOR ARE EACH WAIVING
THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
13.2 Exceptions. Notwithstanding Section13.1, we both agree
otherwise limit either of our right to: (i)bring an individual action in
small claims court; (ii)pursue enforcement actions through applicable
federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available;
(iii)seek injunctive relief in a court of law; or (iv)to file suit
in a court of law to address intellectual property infringement claims.
13.3 Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and Sponsor will be
governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary
Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of
the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this Terms
of Use, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms
are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or
by contacting Sponsor.
13.4 Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must
first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail or
Federal Express (signature required), or if we do not have a physical address
on file for you, by submitting a form here: TOS Contact.
The Notice must: (i)describe the
nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii)set forth the specific
relief sought (“Demand”). We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve
the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within thirty
(30) days after the Notice is received, you or Sponsor may commence an
arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement
offer made by you or Sponsor must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until
after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If our dispute
is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, Sponsor will pay you:
(a)the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any; (b)the last
written settlement amount offered by Sponsor in settlement of the dispute prior
to the arbitrator’s award; or (c)$1,000, whichever is greater.
13.5 Fees. If you commence arbitration in accordance with this Terms
of Use, Sponsor will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless
your claim is for greater than $10,000, in which case the payment of any fees
will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearings will take place at
a location to be agreed upon in California, provided that if the claim is for $10,000
or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted:
(i)solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator;
(ii)through a non-appearance based telephonic hearing; or (iii)by
an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish)
of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of
your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an
improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of
Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the
AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse Sponsor for all monies
previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the
AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the
arbitrator will issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the
essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are
based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment
and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and
upon request from either party made within fourteen (14) days of the
arbitrator’s ruling on the merits. In the event of a dispute, and unless otherwise
prohibited by law or expressly noted herein, each party will bear their own
attorney’s fees and other costs.
13.6 No Class Actions. YOU AND
SPONSOR AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR
OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY
PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Sponsor
agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s
claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or
13.7 Modifications. If Sponsor makes any future change to this
arbitration provision (other than a change to Sponsor’s address for Notice),
you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within thirty (30)
days of the change to Sponsor’s address for Notice, in which case your account
with Sponsor will immediately be terminated and this arbitration provision, as
in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject will survive.
13.8 Enforceability. If Section13.6 is found to be
unenforceable or if the entirety of this Section13 is found to be
unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section13 will be null and void
and, in that case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue
described in Section11 will govern any action arising out of or related
consent to receiving certain electronic communications from us as further
about your choices regarding our electronic communications practices. You
agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures, or other communications that Sponsor
sends to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements,
including that such communications be in writing.
