We want to address your concerns without needing to file a formal legal claim. Before filing a claim against us, you acknowledge and agree you will try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting us at email@example.com. We will try to resolve the dispute via e-mail, but if we cannot resolve the dispute within thirty (30) days after the date of your submission, you agree to resolve any claims related to these Terms of Service through final and binding arbitration, except as forth under this section titled “Arbitration”.
By using theService, you agree that: (i) any claim, dispute, or controversy you may have against Company arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with this Terms of Service or theService shall be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and conducted before a single arbitrator pursuant to the applicable Rules and Procedures established by AAA (“Rules and Procedures”); (ii) the arbitration shall be held at a location determined by AAA pursuant to the Rules and Procedures (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for you), or at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and Company; (iii) the arbitrator shall apply Illinois law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; (iv) there shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis; arbitration can decide only you and/or Company’s individual claims; and the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated; (v) in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Company will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive; and (vi) with the exception of subpart (iv) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures established by AAA, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (iv) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this Arbitration Provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor Company shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. For more information on AAA and its Rules and Procedures, you may visit the AAA website at http://www.adr.org.
You can opt-out and decline this agreement to arbitrate by contacting us within thirty (30) day of the date that you first became subject to this arbitration provision (i.e.: the date you accept these Terms of Service). You must send us written notice to Company attention: Opt-Out Arbitration, One North Wacker Drive, Suite 1905, Chicago, IL 60606. If you opt out, you are not required to participate in an arbitration proceeding.
Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in the event (i) you misuse and/or abuse our website or services, (ii) you breach the confidentiality terms set forth herein and/or (iii) you infringe a third party’s intellectual property rights, we may assert a claim against you and seek injunctive relief from a court of competent jurisdiction. In the event of the foregoing, any such action shall take place exclusively in the courts situated in the City of Chicago, Cook County, Illinois and the parties hereby submit to the venue of the courts situated therein.
No Class Actions
You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action.
