XIII. General Terms
XIV. Dispute Resolution
A. Mandatory Arbitration
Please read this carefully. It affects user’s rights. You and YFW and each of our legal representatives, heirs, estates, successors, and permitted assigns agree to arbitration (except for matters that may be taken to small claims court), as the exclusive form of dispute resolution except as provided for below, for all disputes and claims arising out of or relating to this agreement. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Please visit www.adr.org for more information about arbitration. No arbitration is required for equitable relief sought by us.
B. Commencing Arbitration
A party seeking arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written notice of intent to arbitrate (a “notice”), or, in the absence of a mailing address provided by user, to user via any other method available to user, including via email and text message. The notice to YFW should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (the “demand”). If the claim is not resolved within 30 days after the notice is received, then user or YFW may commence an arbitration proceeding as set forth below or file a claim in small claims court. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its commercial arbitration rules and the supplementary procedures for consumer related disputes (the “rules”), as modified by this agreement. The rules and AAA forms are available at www.adr.org.
C. Arbitration Proceeding
The arbitration will be in English. A single independent and impartial arbitrator with his or her primary place of business in Strafford County, New Hampshire will be appointed pursuant to the rules, as modified herein. The following rules will apply: (a) the arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online, or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner to be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (b) the arbitration will not require any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing by the parties; and (c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
D. No Class Actions
User may bring claims (including actions in equity) against the other only in their individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. Further, the arbitrator may not consolidate proceedings brought by user with more than one person’s or entity’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding, and that if this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then this entire mandatory arbitration section will be null and void at YFW’s option.
E. Decision of the Arbitrator
F. Equitable Relief
The foregoing provisions of this Dispute Resolution section do not apply to any claim in which YFW seeks equitable relief of any kind, which are cumulative and not exclusive of other rights and remedies at law and in equity and which will not require the posting of bond, and notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary whatsoever, YFW may seek equitable relief and associated remedies at law in any jurisdiction and venue in which such relief is desired.
Notwithstanding any other rights a party may have under law or equity, any cause of action a user may have arising out of or related to this agreement must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues. Otherwise, the cause of action is permanently barred.
H. Improperly Filed Claims
All claims user brings against YFW must be resolved in accordance with this section. All claims filed or brought contrary to this section will be considered improperly filed. Should user file a claim contrary to this section, YFW may recover attorneys’ fees and costs up to $10,000, provided that YFW has notified user in writing of the improperly filed claim, and user has failed to promptly withdraw the claim.
If the arbitration provisions of this section or the entirety of this section (excluding this paragraph) is found to be unenforceable, then, at YFW’s sole option, the entirety of this section will be null and void (excluding this paragraph) and, in which case, the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of Strafford County in the State of New Hampshire will govern any action arising out of or related to this agreement other than equitable action and associated remedies at law sought by YFW . Any other provisions of this agreement which are invalid in their entirety are severable.
