You agree that any dispute, claim, controversy, suit, action, cause of action, demand or proceeding arising out of or relating in any way to our Site, these Terms & Conditions, and your access and use of our WEBSITE or Content (“Dispute(s)”) shall be subject to the following terms contained within this Dispute Resolution provision. For the avoidance of any doubt, the WEBSITE includes any websites that we control.
Any dispute, claim, or controversy regarding the validity, scope or interpretation of this Dispute Resolution provision shall be determined by binding arbitration in Cook County, Illinois, under the laws of the State of Illinois, and administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Consumer Arbitration Rules. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of any other section within the Terms & Conditions.
Waiver of Right to Pursue Class Action Claims
You and COMPANY agree that each may bring claims or otherwise resolve Disputes against the other party only on an individual basis, and waive any right to pursue any claims as a plaintiff of class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding. Further, you and COMPANY agree that a Dispute will not be brought as a class or other type of representative action, whether within or outside of arbitration, or on behalf of you or any other individual or group of individuals.
Limitation on Time to Bring an Action
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any Dispute brought by you must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, and that thereafter such claim or cause of action will forever be barred.
Waiver of Jury Trial
BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, BOTH YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT IN ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING ARISING FROM, UNDER, OR PURSUANT TO THE TERMS, OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO ANY DISPUTE, YOU AND COMPANY MUST, AND DO HEREBY, ABSOLUTELY WAIVE AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY.
Agreement to Arbitrate Claims
Except for Disputes in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court and that qualifies to be filed in small claims court (“Small Claims Dispute”), you and COMPANY agree that all other Disputes shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”) and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
The seat and venue of arbitration shall be Cook County, Illinois, but you and COMPANY may agree to conduct the arbitration by telephone, online and/or solely based on written submissions. The arbitration shall be governed by the laws of the State of Illinois, without regard to its conflict-of-laws provisions. In making determinations regarding the scope of exchange of electronic information, the arbitrator(s) and the parties agree to be guided by The Sedona Principles, Third Edition: Best Practices, Recommendations & Principles for Addressing Electronic Document Production.
Time is of the essence for any arbitration under this agreement and arbitration hearings shall take place within 90 days of filing and awards rendered within 120 days. Arbitrator(s) shall agree to these limits prior to accepting appointment.
All arbitration proceedings will be confidential and all records relating thereto will be permanently sealed to the fullest extent possible under applicable law. Neither a party nor an arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration hereunder without the prior written consent of both parties, except as may be required by law.
The arbitrator(s) will have the power to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity and any award of the arbitrator will be final and binding on each of the parties. The arbitrator(s) will not, however, have the power to award punitive damages, exemplary damages, or attorneys’ fees, the right to which each party hereby waives. The arbitrator(s) also does not have the power to vary the class action waiver provisions. Each party shall bear their own costs and expenses. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
These Terms affect interstate commerce and the enforceability of this provision shall be both governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, you and COMPANY agree that COMPANY may commence and maintain an action or proceeding seeking injunctive or other equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction, if COMPANY so chooses.
If any term of this Dispute Resolution provision is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other terms remain in full force and effect.
If you elect to seek arbitration or file a small claims action, you must first send a certified written Notice of your claim (“Notice”) to: [email protected].
The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought. If you and COMPANY do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or COMPANY may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court.
