Legal Disputes, Binding Arbitration

Read the following arbitration agreement carefully. Unless prohibited by local law and to the extent applicable, it limits certain rights, including your right to obtain relief or damages through court action or as a member of a class.  It contains procedures for mandatory binding arbitration and a class action waiver.

 

Any controversy or claim arising out of your use of the Site, these Terms of Use, and/or our Privacy Policy  shall be settled by binding arbitration before Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”) in New York City, New York, in accordance with the procedural rules for commercial disputes set forth in the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS for claims not in excess of Two Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars (US$250,000) and the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS for claims in excess of such amount (collectively, “JAMS Rules and Procedures”) then prevailing, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the JAMS Rules and Procedures. Please go to www.jamsadr.com to see a complete copy of the JAMS Rules and Procedures or to submit a claim for arbitration. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the JAMS Rules and Procedures. Alternatively, you may assert your claims in small claims court in accordance with these Terms of Use if your claims qualify, so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis.

 

In resolving a claim for arbitration, the arbitrator shall apply New York law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law. If any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal (other than that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis), or otherwise conflicts with the rules and procedures established by JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision will remain in effect and will be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, the portion that is deemed invalid, unenforceable or illegal is that claims will not be arbitrated on a class, representative, or collective basis, or as a private attorney general on behalf of other persons similarly situated, then the entirety of this arbitration provision will be null and void, and neither you nor we shall be entitled to arbitrate the dispute. Upon filing a demand for arbitration, all parties to such arbitration will have the right of discovery, which discovery shall be completed within sixty days after the demand for arbitration is made, unless further extended by mutual agreement of the parties. Disputes regarding the arbitrability of any claim shall be resolved by the arbitrator.

 

THE ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION SHALL BE IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU MAY NOT BRING ANY CLAIM AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ON BEHALF OF OTHER SIMILARLY SITUATED PERSONS. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN THE CLAIMS OF OTHER PERSONS OR PARTIES WHO MAY BE SIMILARLY SITUATED. Without in any way limiting the foregoing, you and Company agree that any individual arbitration commenced by you or by Company may be consolidated with any other individual arbitration(s) pending before JAMS in accordance with JAMS Streamlined Rule 6(e) or JAMS Comprehensive Rule 6(e), provided that either party makes such request.

 

BY AGREEING TO THE ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES AS SET FORTH HEREIN, YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND LIMITING YOUR RIGHT TO APPEAL. DO NOT USE THE SITE IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE FOREGOING BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISIONS.
