PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT IN THIS SECTION (“ARBITRATION AGREEMENT”) CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH US AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
In the event of a Dispute, prior to initiating arbitration, the party asserting the claim must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written notice of Dispute (“Notice”). If you are the claimant, the Notice to us must be addressed to: ___________________. If we are the claimant, the Notice must be addressed to the address used for your Account. The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the Dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought. Following receipt of the Notice, each party agrees to negotiate with the other in good faith about the claim. If the claim is not resolved to the satisfaction of the claimant within sixty (60) days after Notice is provided, the claimant may pursue the claim in arbitration or file a claim in small claims court. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by us or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator. More information can be found at www.adr.org.
If you are required to pay a filing fee to initiate arbitration, after we receive notice of the initiation of arbitration, we will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee at the address we have for you on file (or the address provided in the Notice), unless your claim is for greater than $10,000 USD. 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, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at www.adr.org. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of these Terms and Conditions. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement.
The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (a) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement and (b) resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to, any assertion that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and us. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and these Terms and Conditions (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us. The arbitrator shall determine any and all challenges to the arbitrability of a claim. The arbitral award shall be judicially enforceable. Any court of competent jurisdiction may, and upon request shall, enter judgment on the arbitral award. Either party may seek confirmation (judgment on the award) and/or enforcement in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding any provision in the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures to the contrary, and with the exception of Desk Arbitrations (in which the parties submit their arguments and evidence to the arbitrator in writing and the arbitrator makes an award based only on the documents), the Federal Rules of Evidence shall govern the admissibility of evidence in any arbitral proceeding. Unless you and we agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If your claim is for $10,000 USD 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 USD, 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 written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. If the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of our last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected (or if we did not make a settlement offer before an arbitrator was selected), then we will pay you the amount of the award or $1,000 USD, whichever is greater. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. Notwithstanding any provision in the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures to the contrary, the arbitrator shall not have the authority or any jurisdiction to hear the arbitration as a class, consolidated, representative, or private attorney general action or to consolidate, join, or otherwise combine the claims of different persons into one proceeding.
If a proposed class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action arbitration is initiated, notwithstanding the below prohibition, and it is finally determined by the arbitrator (or a court of competent jurisdiction) that the waiver specified herein is not enforceable, then the arbitration proceedings shall be bifurcated as follows and notwithstanding any provision in the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures to the contrary, the following rules will apply. The issues of arbitrability shall be determined by the arbitrator pursuant to the applicable rules and substantive law. Assuming the arbitrator concludes that the arbitration may proceed, said arbitration shall be stayed, and the issue of whether to certify any alleged or putative class for a class action (or other representative) proceeding shall be presented to and decided by a court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall not have authority or jurisdiction to decide class certification (or any similar representative action) issues. The decision to certify or not certify a class action (or to otherwise permit the action to proceed on a representative basis) shall be appealable in the judicial proceedings consistent with the rules and law governing the appeals of interlocutory decisions or class certification (or similar) rulings specifically, if appropriate. Once any issues regarding class certification (and/or similar representative requirements) have been finally decided by the court, the arbitrator will have authority to decide the substantive claims on an individual or a class (or other representative) basis, as may be determined and directed by the court. The arbitrator(s) shall not have the power to commit errors of law or legal reasoning, make clearly erroneous factual findings, or abuse his or her discretion, and the award may be vacated or corrected on appeal to a court of competent jurisdiction for any such error.
You may elect to opt out (exclude yourself) from the final, binding arbitration procedure and the class action waiver specified in these Terms and Conditions by doing the following: within 15 days of setting up your Account, you must send a letter to __________________ that specifies (1) your name, (2) your Account number or Account member name, (3) your mailing address, and (4) your request to be excluded from the final, binding arbitration procedure and class action waiver specified in these Terms and Conditions. All other Terms shall continue to apply to your Account, including the requirement to participate in pre-dispute mediation. Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms and Conditions to the contrary, we agree that, if we make any future change to the dispute resolution procedure and class action waiver provisions (other than a change to our address), you may reject any such change by sending a letter to us within 15 days of the change to the 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. Your letter must be postmarked by the applicable 15-day deadline to be effective. You are not required to send the letter by confirmed mail or return receipt requested, but it is recommended that you do so. Your request to be excluded will only be effective and enforceable if you can prove that the request was postmarked within the applicable 15-day deadline.
Class Action Waiver; Jury Trial Waiver
YOU AND MUSE KITS AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS OR DISPUTES AGAINST THE OTHER ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, THE SERVICES AND/OR THE PRODUCTS ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Both you and we waive the right to bring any Dispute arising out of or relating in any way to these Terms and Conditions, the Services and/or the Products as a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action, or to participate in a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action regarding any such claim brought by anyone else. Further, unless both you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate the claims of more than one party, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable as applied to any claim asserted by you, then the entirety of the arbitration provision set forth in this section shall be null and void. ALL DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OR DISPUTES OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a given Dispute, then such aspect must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the State or Federal Courts located in the State of California. All other Disputes shall be arbitrated.
YOU AND MUSE KITS HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and Muse Kits are instead electing that all Disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow these Terms and Conditions as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
These Terms and Conditions and any Dispute related thereto will be governed and interpreted by and under the laws of the state of California, consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, without giving effect to any principles that provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction.
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay the performance of, any of its obligations that is caused by events outside its reasonable control (“Force Majeure Event”). A Force Majeure Event includes any act, event, non-happening, omission or accident beyond our reasonable control and includes, but is not limited, to the following: (1) strikes, lock-outs, or other industrial action; (2) civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war, or threat or preparation for war; (3) fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic, pandemic, or other natural disaster; (4) impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport, or other means of public or private transport; (5) impossibility of the use of public or private telecommunications networks; and (6) the acts, decrees, legislation, regulations, or restrictions of any government. Our performance under these Terms and Conditions is deemed to be suspended for the period that the Force Majeure Event continues, and we will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period.
We may notify you via postings on the Website. You may contact us at email@example.com. Where we require that you provide an email address, you are responsible for providing us with your most current email address. In the event that the last email address you provided to us is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you any notices required or permitted by these Terms and Conditions, our dispatch of the email containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice. You may give notice to us at the address at the bottom of these Terms and Conditions. Such notice shall be deemed given when received by us by letter delivered by nationally recognized overnight delivery service or first-class postage prepaid mail at the above address.
If any part of these Terms and Conditions is held to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. No waiver by us of any provision in these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such provision or a waiver of any other provision, and any failure to assert a right or provision under these Terms and Conditions does not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
These Terms and Conditions and any document expressly referred to in them constitute the whole agreement between you and us, and supersede all previous discussions, correspondence, negotiations, arrangements, understandings, or agreements between us relating to the subject matter of any contract. These Terms and Conditions, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you without the prior written consent of us. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms and Conditions are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.
In accordance with California Civil Code §1789.3, you may report complaints to the Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs by contacting them in writing at 1625 North Market Blvd., Suite N 112, Sacramento, CA 95834, or by telephone at (800) 952-5210.
