13. Dispute Resolution/Arbitration
Please Read This Following Clause Carefully – It May Significantly Affect Your Legal Right Rights, Including Your Right to File a Lawsuit in Court.
13.1. Initial dispute Resolution: Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner. The parties shall use their 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 arbitration.
13.2. Agreement to Binding Arbitration: If the parties do not reach an agreed upon solution with a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is pursued, then either party may initiate binding arbitration. All claims arising out of or relating to this agreement (including its formation, performance and breach), the parties’ relationship with each other and/or your use of the Website shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the provisions of AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. 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 this agreement, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this agreement is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction, subject to review in accordance with applicable statutes governing arbitration awards. The interpretation and enforcement of this agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
13.3. THE AAA’S RULES GOVERNING THE ARBITRATION MAY BE ACCESSED AT WWW.ADR.ORG OR BY CALLING THE AAA AT 1.800.778.7879. TO THE EXTENT THE FILING FEE FOR THE ARBITRATION EXCEEDS THE COST OF FILING A LAWSUIT, WE WILL PAY THE ADDITIONAL COST. A REQUEST FOR PAYMENT OF FEES SHOULD BE SUBMITTED TO AAA ALONG WITH YOUR FORM FOR INITIATING THE ARBITRATION, AND WE WILL MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO PAY ALL NECESSARY FEES DIRECTLY TO AAA. IF THE ARBITRATOR FINDS THE ARBITRATION TO BE NON-FRIVOLOUS, WE WILL PAY ALL OF THE ACTUAL FILING AND ARBITRATOR FEES FOR THE ARBITRATION, PROVIDED YOUR CLAIM DOES NOT EXCEED $75,000. THE ARBITRATION RULES ALSO PERMIT YOU TO RECOVER ATTORNEY’S FEES IN CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES.
13.4. THE PARTIES UNDERSTAND THAT, ABSENT THIS MANDATORY 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 CIVIL COURT.
13.5. Class Action and Class Arbitration Waiver. The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their 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 parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
13.6. Exception – Small Claims Court Claims. Notwithstanding the parties’ agreement to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
13.7. 30-Day Right To Opt-Out. You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration provision provided above. If you do not wish to be bound by this arbitration clause, you must notify the Company in writing within 30 days after registering to use the Company website, or your rejection of arbitration will not be effective. You must send your request to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Your request must include your telephone number(s) and a clear statement of your intent, such as "I reject the arbitration clause stated in the Company’s Website Terms and Conditions.” Please be aware that if you exercise your right to opt-out, the Company also will not be bound by the arbitration provision.
13.8. Exclusive Venue For Litigation. To the extent that the arbitration provisions set forth above do not apply, the parties agree that any litigation between them shall be filed exclusively in state or federal court located in Los Angeles, California (except for small claims court actions which may be brought in the county where you reside). The parties expressly consent to exclusive jurisdiction in Los Angeles, California for any litigation other than small claims court actions.
14. Statute of Limitations
Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary or the applicable dispute resolution process, an informal complaint pertaining to any Claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or under the TOS must be filed with nJoy within one (1) year after such Claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
