Arbitration Agreement – Legal Disputes
Initial Dispute Resolution. We are available by email at email@example.com to address any concerns you may have regarding the Service. 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 a lawsuit or arbitration.
If the parties do not reach an agreed upon solution through the informal dispute resolution process, then either party may initiate binding arbitration. All claims arising out of or relating to these Terms, the parties’ relationship with each other, and/or your use of the Service shall be finally settled by binding arbitration. Any arbitration will be held before a single neutral arbitrator and will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules and the Consumer Due Process Protocol (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) as currently in effect and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at https://www.adr.org/consumer, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. To the extent that there is a conflict between this clause and the AAA Rules, the arbitrator shall resolve such conflicts so as to preserve the parties’ mutual obligation to arbitrate claims on an individual basis. 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 these Terms including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms are void or voidable. 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 binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision shall exclusively be governed by the procedures and rules of the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) and federal law, and not by any state or local laws, or the laws of other countries, concerning or purporting to place limits on the availability or scope of arbitration or in any way imposing requirements beyond or inconsistent with those set forth in the FAA, and the parties hereby reject, waive, and disclaim the application of any state arbitration act.
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 court.
Class Action 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 the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
Exception – Small Claims Court Claims. Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
Exclusive Venue for Litigation. Solely to the extent the arbitration provisions set forth above do not apply, or for purposes of either party enforcing an award granted to it pursuant to arbitration, the parties agree that any litigation between them shall be filed exclusively in state or federal courts located in Bennington County, Bennington, VT (except for small claims court actions which may be brought in the county where you reside). The parties expressly consent to exclusive jurisdiction in Bennington County, Bennington, VT for any litigation other than small claims court actions. The parties irrevocably consent to personal jurisdiction in Bennington County, Bennington, VT for any litigation and hereby waive, for all purposes, their right to challenge the lack of personal jurisdiction of any court in such jurisdiction over any litigation arising in connection with, out of, or as a result of (a) these Terms or the Service and (b) any acts or omissions of Orvis in connection with these Terms or the Service.
