IX MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER AGREEMENT – IMPORTANT – PLEASE REVIEW AS THIS AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.

  1. Scope of the Arbitration Agreement. Any dispute or claim arising from or related to our Services, these Terms & Conditions, and/or the Privacy Policy (“Dispute”) shall be resolved by one arbitrator through binding arbitration using the process explained below.   The parties understand and agree that they are waiving their rights to sue or go to court to assert or defend their rights.  However, either party may bring an individual claim in small claims court consistent with the jurisdictional and dollar amount limitations that may apply, so long as maintained as an individual claim.  The term “Dispute” refers to any dispute, action, claim, or other controversy between us, whether in contract, warranty, tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, or any other legal or equitable basis.
  2. Informal Dispute Resolution. Either party asserting a Dispute shall first try in good faith to resolve it by providing written notice as specified below to the other party describing the facts and circumstances (including any relevant documentation) and allowing the receiving party 30 days in which to respond. Notice shall be made by first class or registered mail (1) to Privacy Team at 12140 Wickchester Lane, Suite 100, Houston, TX 77079 or (2) to you at the postal address on file with us.  Both you and Company agree that this dispute resolution procedure is a condition precedent which must be satisfied before initiating any arbitration against the other party.
  3. How Arbitration Works. Either party may initiate arbitration, which shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), under the AAA Commercial or Consumer rules, as applicable, in effect at the time the Claim is filed (“AAA Rules”). For information on how to file a claim, copies of the AAA Rules and forms can be located at www.adr.org, or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Arbitration shall take place in the country of your residence, as determined by your mailing address on file with us. We agree to pay or reimburse all costs associated with any arbitration between the parties, including filing fees and arbitrator fees, and agree to waive any right to recover an award of attorneys’ fees and costs against you. The arbitrator’s decision shall be final, binding, and non-appealable. Judgment upon the award may be entered and enforced in any court having jurisdiction.
  4. IMPORTANT: Waiver of Right to Bring Class Action & Representative Claims. All Disputes, whether resolved informally, in small claims court, or through arbitration, shall be brought on an individual basis. Disputes must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, collective, representative, multiple plaintiff, or similar proceeding (“Class Action”). The parties expressly waive any ability to maintain any Class Action in any forum, and the arbitrator shall not have authority to combine or aggregate similar claims or conduct any Class Action nor make an award to any entity or person not a party to the arbitration. Any claim that all or part of this Class Action waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. THE PARTIES UNDERSTAND THAT THEY WOULD HAVE HAD A RIGHT TO LITIGATE THROUGH A COURT, TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE THEIR CASE AND TO BE PARTY TO A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, HOWEVER, THEY UNDERSTAND AND CHOOSE TO HAVE ANY CLAIMS DECIDED INDIVIDUALLY, THROUGH ARBITRATION.
  5. Governing Law. This Arbitration Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and interpreting federal law. To the extent state law applies to any aspect of this provision or the Claim, the law of your residence, as determined by your mailing address on file with us, shall apply. Neither party shall sue the other party other than as provided herein or for enforcement of this clause or of the arbitrator’s award; any such suit may be brought only in the federal court encompassing the county where the arbitration took place, or if any such court lacks jurisdiction, in any state court that has jurisdiction. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, unconscionability, arbitrability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including any claim that all or any part of the Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. However, the preceding sentence shall not apply to the clause above entitled “Waiver of Right to Bring Class Action & Representative Claims.”
  6. Claims and Disputes Must be Filed Within One Year. To the extent permitted by law, and without limiting the effect of any disclaimer contained herein, any cause of action or claim you may have with respect to your use of the Services, including, without limitation, any website or mobile application or other Services-related product, services, or other content must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises.  This section applies to you and your heirs, successors and assigns.

X. SEVERABILITY.

To the extent that any provision of these Terms & Conditions is deemed to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, including the binding arbitration clause and class action waiver, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms & Conditions.  Such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.

XI TERMINATION.

These Terms & Conditions are effective until terminated.  We may terminate this agreement at any time without notice to you and may deny you access to our Services.

XII INDEMNIFICATION.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, and except to the extent arising from our gross negligence or intentional misconduct, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless us, and our employees, contractors, licensors, service providers, subcontractors, suppliers, interns and employees, from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees made by any third party due to or arising out of your breach of these Terms & Conditions or the documents they incorporate by reference, or your violation of any law or rights of a third party.  We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you shall cooperate with us in asserting any available defenses.  You shall not settle any actions or claims on our behalf without our prior written consent.

If you are a California resident or resident of a state with a similar applicable law, you hereby expressly waive California Civil Code section 1542 in connection with the foregoing (or such other similar applicable law in your state), which states: “A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.”

XIII NO THIRD-PARTY BENEFICIARIES.

There are no third-party beneficiaries to the Terms & Conditions.  We shall have the right to assign our rights or delegate any of its responsibilities under these Terms & Conditions to an affiliate or in connection with a merger, consolidation, or reorganization for the sale of substantially all of our assets.

XIV CHANGES TO THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS.

We reserve the right to change, modify, or amend these Terms & Conditions at any time to reflect changes in our practices and service offerings.  If we modify our Terms & Conditions, such changes will be effective upon posting.  It is your obligation to check our current Terms & Conditions for any changes.  These Terms & Conditions may only be modified in writing.  Any ambiguities in the interpretation will not be construed against the drafter.
