11. AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES FOR USERS IN THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CLAUSES CAREFULLY – THEY MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
11.1 Initial Dispute Resolution. We are available by email at email@example.com to address any concerns you may have regarding your use of the Services. Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner. Each of you and we agree to use best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
11.2 Agreement to Binding Arbitration. For all disputes and claims other than those regarding ABH’s IP rights as described in Section 6 above, if we do not reach an agreed upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is pursued pursuant to the immediately preceding paragraph, then either party may initiate binding arbitration. All claims arising out of or relating to the Terms & Conditions (including their formation, performance and breach), your and our relationship and/or your use of the Services shall be finally settled by binding arbitration, which is a private process through which disputing parties agree that one or several neutral arbitrators can make a binding decision and/or award in relation to the dispute after receiving evidence and hearing arguments.
To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, we will pay the additional cost. If the arbitrator finds the arbitration to be non-frivolous, we will pay the fees invoiced by JAMS, including filing fees and arbitrator and hearing expenses. You are responsible for your own attorneys' fees unless the arbitration rules and/or applicable law provide otherwise.
The parties understand that, absent this mandatory arbitration provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
If you are a resident of the United States, arbitration may take place in the county where you reside at the time of filing. For individuals residing outside the United States, arbitration shall be initiated in the State of California, United States of America. You and ABH further agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any federal or state court in Los Angeles, California in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
11.4 Authority of the Arbitrator. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of the Terms, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of the Terms is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be in writing and provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions, shall be binding on you and us and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The interpretation and enforcement this arbitration agreement and all other agreements between you and ABH shall be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act.
11.5 Waiver of Jury Trial. You and we understand that, absent this mandatory provision, you and we would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. You and we further understand that the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
11.6 Class Action and Class Arbitration Waiver. You and we each further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in our respective individual capacities only and not as a class action, and you and we each expressly waive our respective right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and you and we shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes. 11.7 Exception – Small Claims Court Claims. Notwithstanding your and ABH’s agreement to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either you or ABH may seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
11.8 Exception – California Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA) Action. Notwithstanding your and ABH’s agreement to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either you or we may seek relief in a court of law for a claim arising under California’s Private Attorneys General Act.
11.9 Opt-Out of Agreement to Arbitrate. You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and providing the following information: (i) your name, (ii) your email address; (iii) your mailing address; and (iv) a statement of your wish not to resolve disputes with ABH through arbitration. The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of your agreement to the Terms, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of this section. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, ABH also will not be bound by them.
