PLEASE READ THIS FOLLOWING CLAUSE CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT
Initial Dispute Resolution. Mueshi is available by email at [insert] to address any concerns you may have regarding your use of the Site. Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner. Each of you and Mueshi agree to use reasonable 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.
Agreement to Binding Arbitration. If Company and you do not reach an agreed upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is pursued pursuant to Section 9(a) above, then either you or Company may initiate binding arbitration. All claims arising out of or relating to the Terms of Service (including their formation, performance and breach), the parties’ relationship with each other and/or your use of the Site shall be finally and exclusively settled by binding arbitration administered by JAMS, in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. Each party will have the right to use legal counsel in connection with arbitration at its own expense. The parties shall select a single neutral arbitrator in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. 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. You or Company may elect to appear at the arbitration by phone or, if you and Company both agree, to conduct it online, in lieu of appearing live. 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 the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
The JAMS rules governing the arbitration may be accessed at https://www.jamsadr.com/adr-rules-procedures. If you initiate arbitration, to the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds Two Hundred and Fifty U.S. Dollars ($250.00), Mueshi will pay the additional cost. If Mueshi is required to pay the additional cost of the filing fees, you should submit a request for payment of fees to JAMS along with your form for initiating the arbitration, and Mueshi will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to JAMS. Mueshi will also be responsible for paying all other arbitration costs arising in connection with the arbitration, other than costs incurred by you for legal counsel, travel and other out-of-pocket costs and expenses not constituting fees or amounts payable to JAMS. You will not be required to pay fees and costs incurred by Mueshi if you do not prevail in arbitration. Mueshi will also pay JAMS to reimburse you for any portion of the $250.00 filing fee that is more than what you would otherwise have to pay to file suit in a court of law.
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 the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
Class Action and Class Arbitration Waiver. You and Mueshi each further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in Company’s respective individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and you and the Company each expressly waive Company’s 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 cannot proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth herein shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
Exception – Small Claims Court. 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.
Exception – California Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA) Action. Notwithstanding the parties’ agreement to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may seek relief in a court of law for a claim arising under California’s Private Attorneys General Act.
30 Day Right to Opt-Out. You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth herein by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out by emailing Mueshi at [[email protected]]. The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of registering to use the Site, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the Terms of Service herein. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, Mueshi also will not be bound by them.
This Site may include links to third-party websites which are not controlled by Mueshi. Mueshi disclaims any and all responsibility for the contents of any third-party websites or any websites linked therein. Links to third-party websites are provided on this Site as a convenience to you and the inclusion of any link in no way represents an endorsement by Mueshi of any kind. Additionally, Mueshi disclaims any and all responsibility for any and all third-party transactions.
These Terms of Service and your access to and use of the Site shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware (without regard to conflict of law rules or principles of the State of Delaware, or any other jurisdiction that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction). Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration as set forth in Section 10 or cannot be heard in small claims court, shall be resolved in the state or federal courts of Wilmington in the State of Delaware.
If any term, clause, or provision of these Terms of Service is held invalid or unenforceable, then that term, clause, or provision will be severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining part of that term, clause, or provision, or any other term, clause, or provision of these terms.
All sections of the Terms which by their nature are designed to survive expiration or termination of the Terms or your use of the Site shall survive any applicable expiration or termination.
