Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by emailing Emme support at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the unlikely event that our customer support team is unable to resolve a complaint you may have (or if Emme has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally), we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration, mediation, or small claims court instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. Arbitration, which is often cheaper, faster, and less formal than a lawsuit in court, uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Any arbitration under these Terms and Conditions of Sale will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted.
- Emme and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to:
- claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory;
- claims that arose before this or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);
- claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and
- claims that may arise after the termination of these Terms and Conditions of Sale.
- References to “Emme”, “we”, “you”, and “us” include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized beneficiaries of products under this or prior agreements between us. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. This arbitration agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, provincial, national or local agencies, including, for example, if residing in the United States, the Federal Communications Commission or the Attorney General of your state. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into these Terms and Conditions of Sale, you and Emme are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. If residing in the United States, these Terms and Conditions of Sale evidence a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms and Conditions of Sale.
- A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to Emme should be sent to Emme, Inc., Attn: Disputes, 498 Alabama St., San Francisco, CA 94110. , with a copy by email to email@example.com (“Notice Address”). The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If Emme and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or Emme may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Emme or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Emme is entitled.
- The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms and Conditions of Sale, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of these Terms and Conditions of Sale. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of the arbitration provision. Unless Emme and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location in the United States for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination shall be made by AAA. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. Emme will pay all AAA filing, administration, and arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated in accordance with the AAA Rules. However, if you initiate an arbitration in which you seek more than $75,000 in damages, the payment of these fees will be governed by the AAA rules.
- The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees and expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. YOU AND Emme AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Emme agree otherwise in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.
- Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms and Conditions of Sale to the contrary, we agree that if Emme makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Notice Address) while you are a user of products, you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change to the Arbitration Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this provision. The provisions of this arbitration agreement shall only be in effect to the extent they are permitted under applicable laws. If the AAA Rules cannot be applied to an arbitration under applicable law, then the rules of the local governing arbitration body shall apply instead.
- These Terms and Conditions of Sale constitute the entire agreement between you and Emme and govern your use of products, superseding any prior agreements between you and Emme with respect to products. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate or third-party services, third-party content, or third-party software.
- These Terms and Conditions of Sale will be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to its conflict of law provisions. With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration, as set forth above, you and Emme agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located within San Francisco, CA.
- The failure of Emme to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms and Conditions of Sale will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms and Conditions of Sale is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be (or are otherwise) invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms and Conditions of Sale remain in full force and effect.
- A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
- You may not assign these Terms and Conditions of Sale without the prior written consent of Emme, but Emme may assign or transfer these Terms and Conditions of Sale, in whole or in part, without restriction.
- If we fail to enforce any of our rights, that does not result in a waiver of that right.
- The section titles in these Terms and Conditions of Sale are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
- Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to pose any questions regarding these Terms and Conditions of Sale.
