Dispute Resolution: Mandatory Binding Individual Arbitration and Class and Collective Action Waiver
The exclusive means of resolving any claim related to your use of the Sites or these Terms shall be BINDING ARBITRATION. Except as provided below in the case of a Mass Filing, the arbitration will be administered by JAMS under the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures. If you are a consumer, as defined by JAMS in its Consumer Minimum Standards, you may request that the arbitration hearing be conducted in the area in which you reside. Otherwise, the hearing (if any) shall take place in [Lee County], United States of America.
You agree to first give us an opportunity to resolve any claims by contacting us in writing (the “Claims Notice”). After receipt of a Claims Notice, we may request an individualized video or telephone conference which both parties will personally attend (with counsel, if represented). If we are not able to resolve your claims within sixty (60) days of receiving the Claims Notice, you may seek relief through arbitration, as set forth in this section. You agree that you will not take any legal action, including any demand for arbitration, until after the expiration of this 60-day dispute resolution period.
EACH PARTY WAIVES ITS RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT, TO A TRIAL BY JURY, AND TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING WITH RESPECT TO ANY COVERED CLAIM.
If, at any time, twenty-five (25) or more claimants (including you) submit demands or seek to file demands for arbitration raising similar claims against us, and such circumstances meet the definition and criteria of Mass Filings (“Mass Filing”) set forth in National Arbitration & Mediation's (“NAM”) Mass Filing Supplemental Dispute Resolution Rules and Procedures (“NAM's Mass Filing Rules,” available at https://www.namadr.com/resources/rules-fees-forms/), you and we agree that JAMS shall not serve as the arbitration administrator and that instead NAM shall administer any such Mass Filing and the NAM Mass Filing Rules in effect at the time such claim is filed shall apply. You agree that throughout this process, the parties' counsel shall meet and confer to discuss modifications to these procedures, including the possibility of procedural consolidation of similar claims for arbitration, based on the particular needs of the Mass Filing. You acknowledge and agree that by electing to participate in a Mass Filing, the adjudication of your dispute might be delayed.
You and we agree that each party values the integrity and efficiency of arbitration and wishes to employ the process for the fair resolution of genuine and sincere disputes between the parties. You and we acknowledge and agree to act in good faith to ensure the processes set forth herein are followed.
Governing Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the United States and the State of Florida, without giving effect to conflict of law principles thereof. Subject to Section 11, you hereby consent and submit to personal jurisdiction in the state and federal courts located in Lee County.
