Arbitration

If we any dispute because of these Terms or in any way arising out of or related to the Site and Services, you agree to arbitration. Arbitration is described by the Federal Arbitration Act. Instead of bringing an action in court, you or we would be required to have our dispute settled by a neutral person. This neutral person will be appointed by the American Arbitration Association or another similar service that you and we both agree on. The arbitrator’s decision and award is final. You and we also both agree not to disclose anything about the arbitration to anyone (except as required by law or for the purposes of enforcement or appeal of the arbitration award).

Arbitration will cover all disputes and claims, including tort claims, direct claims, or indirect claims. The arbitrator can decide everything about the dispute. This includes the scope of the dispute. This arbitration clause will continue to be valid even if these Terms are no longer valid for some reason.

If you have a claim or dispute, you must contact us first, so we can try to resolve the matter. You agree to give us 60 days to try to resolve the dispute before requesting arbitration. The arbitration of any dispute or claim will follow the relevant rules of the American Arbitration Association as modified by these Terms.

If you and we have to go to arbitration, you and we will do so only in Orange County, California. The arbitrator may not award relief in excess of or contrary to what these Terms provide, order consolidation or arbitration on a class-wide or representative basis, award punitive or consequential damages or any other damages aside from the prevailing party’s actual damages, or order injunctive or declaratory relief, except that the arbitrator may award on individual basis damages required by statute and may order injunctive or declaratory relief pursuant to an applicable consumer protection statute. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction. If any portion of this arbitration section is determined by a court to be inapplicable or invalid, then the remainder shall still be given full force and effect.

There shall be no right or authority for any claims subject to this arbitration section to be arbitrated on a class action or consolidated basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public (including, but not limited to, as a private attorney general).

You must contact us within one year of the date of the event or facts giving rise to a dispute or you will have waived the right to pursue a claim based on such event or facts.

Class Action Waiver

Any arbitration will be on an individual basis. By using these Sites, you agree that you cannot make “class action” claims.  Unless both you and we agree, the arbitrator cannot group claims together.
