  1. Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration Agreement

Please Read the Following Provisions in this Section 27 “Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration Agreement” Carefully – It May Significantly Affect Your Legal Rights, Including Your Right to File a Lawsuit in Court

A. Both the Company and you (referred to as 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. All claims arising out of or relating to these Terms and Conditions (including its formation, performance and breach) and the Products and Services shall be finally settled by binding arbitration, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. The arbitration will be held in Wake County, North Carolina, U.S.A. or other mutually agreed to location or by telephone/video if agreed. 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 and Conditions, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms and Conditions is 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. To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, the Company will pay the additional cost. The interpretation and enforcement of these Terms and Conditions shall be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act.

The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. The parties 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.

B. 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.

C. Exception – Litigation of Small Claims Court Claims or enforcement actions. 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 to the extent such claims do not seek equitable relief. Additionally, either party may bring enforcement actions, validity determinations or claims arising from or relating to theft, piracy or unauthorized use of intellectual property in state or federal court with jurisdiction or in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect intellectual property rights (“intellectual property rights” means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights).

D. Thirty 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 in this Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration Agreement by emailing [email protected] of your decision to opt-out, Attn: Legal Department Arbitration Opt-Out. The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of the date you have agreed to the Terms and Conditions, whether based on your initial use of our Site or your continued use after the effective date of the updated Terms and Conditions which contain the mandatory arbitration and class action waiver, whichever is later, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms set forth above. If you elect to opt-out of these arbitration provisions, the Company also will not be bound by them. In addition, if you elect to opt-out of these arbitration provisions, we may terminate your use of Products and Services, and/or our Site.
