We believe that arbitration offers a prompt and efficient way to resolve any dispute, controversy or other claim between us (whether arising under any legal or equitable theory, and given the broadest meaning enforceable under law, a “Dispute”).
To the maximum extent permitted by law, you and we agree that any and all Disputes will be resolved exclusively and finally using binding arbitration and will only be conducted on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, representative or similar action, except as provided below. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, the discovery and other procedures are more limited and less formal, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow these Terms and Conditions and can award the same damages and relief as a court in an individual proceeding (including attorney’s fees).
Acceptance of these Terms and Conditions constitutes a waiver of your right to litigate the Dispute in any court, the opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury, and the ability to proceed in a class, consolidated, representative or similar action, except as provided below.
Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution
Before you can commence any proceeding as to a Dispute, you must first give us an opportunity to resolve the Dispute by emailing us at email@example.com a notification that contains the following information: (1) your name, (2) your address, (3) a written description of your claim in the Dispute, and (4) a description of the specific relief you seek. If we do not resolve the Dispute within 45 days after receiving your notification, then you may pursue the Dispute in arbitration or, if you have opted out of arbitration as provided under “Right to Opt Out, in court.
Right to Opt Out
Notwithstanding the above, you may choose to pursue a Dispute in court and not by arbitration if you opt out of arbitration within 30 days from the date that you first consent to these Terms and Conditions (the “Opt-Out Deadline”). To opt out of arbitration, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information: (1) your name; (2) your address; and (3) a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve Disputes with us through arbitration. Please be assured that any decision to opt out of arbitration will have no adverse effect on your relationship with us. But, we do have to enforce the Opt-Out Deadline so keep in mind that any opt out request received after the Opt-Out Deadline will not be valid and you will be required to pursue any Dispute in arbitration.
If the Dispute is not resolved as provided under Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution, either you or we may initiate arbitration proceedings. The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), www.adr.org, will arbitrate all disputes, and the arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator. All issues shall be for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of the arbitration provisions in these Terms and Conditions.
The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. These Terms and Conditions govern in the event of any conflict with the applicable arbitration rules.
Under no circumstances will class action procedures or rules apply to the arbitration, and the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s Disputes or otherwise preside over any form of a class, consolidated, representative or similar action, unless both you and we specifically agree following initiation of the arbitration. The arbitration will be conducted in English, closed to the public and confidential. All related records shall be permanently sealed, except as necessary to obtain court confirmation of the arbitration award.
The U.S. Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) may govern the arbitration of Disputes. However, the arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and the applicable statute of limitations or conditions precedent to suit.
Nothing herein will preclude us from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration (such as orders to stay a court action or compel arbitration), temporary restraining orders or similar relief, or redress for potential violations of our intellectual property rights, from any court of competent jurisdiction.
The arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available pursuant to applicable law, and will not have the power to award relief to, against or for the benefit of any person who is not a party to the proceeding. The arbitrator will make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. Such award will be final and binding on the parties, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA, and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement.
Location of Arbitration
Unless we mutually agree on a different location, arbitration shall occur in Houston, Texas. You waive any right to claim that such location is an inconvenient forum, and you agree not to sue us or bring arbitration in any other forum.
To minimize the costs and burdens of associated with arbitration, you and we agree that the arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner to be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. You and we further agree that the arbitration will not require any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing by the parties.
Payment of Arbitration Fees and Costs
So long as you place a request in writing prior to commencement of the arbitration, we will pay all arbitration filing, administration and arbitrator fees and associated costs and expenses in any Dispute involving claims totaling less than $10,000. You will be responsible for all additional fees and costs that you incur in the arbitration, including the fees and costs of any attorney or expert witness you use. In addition to any fees and costs recoverable under applicable law, if you provide notice and negotiate in good faith with us as provided in the section above titled “Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution” and the arbitrator concludes that you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to recover reasonable attorney’s fees and costs as determined by the arbitrator.
Waiver of Class Action, Jury and Other Rights
You acknowledge and agree that, subject to your ability to pursue a Dispute in court by complying with the procedures above under “Right to Opt Out,” your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions constitutes your waiver of certain rights, including your right to litigate a Dispute in a public court before a judge or jury; your ability to participate in a class, consolidated, representative or similar action; your ability to conduct discovery and other procedures except under AAA rules; and your right to certain remedies, relief or other.
FOR NEW JERSEY RESIDENTS OR OTHER PERSONS ACCESSING THIS SITE FROM NEW JERSEY: You agree that all disputes arising from your account, your use of the Sites, and your Submissions and any Personal Rights contained therein shall be decided solely by an arbitrator, pursuant to the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. By agreeing to arbitration, You understand and agree that You are waiving Your rights to maintain other available resolution processes, such as a court action or administrative proceeding, to settle any disputes. Furthermore, YOU AGREE TO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL in any dispute with Spangelo Designs, its subsidiaries and/or affiliates.
BY ACCESSING THE SERVICE, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU MAY BE WAIVING RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO CLAIMS THAT ARE AT THIS TIME UNKNOWN OR UNSUSPECTED, AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUCH WAIVER, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND, AND HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE, THE BENEFITS OF SECTION 1542 OF THE CIVIL CODE OF CALIFORNIA, AND ANY SIMILAR LAW OF ANY STATE OR TERRITORY, WHICH PROVIDES AS FOLLOWS: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR."
You agree that any claim you may have arising out of or related to your relationship with Spangelo Designs must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, your claim is permanently barred.
