14. DISPUTE RESOLUTION; BINDING ARBITRATION
Please read the following section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with Company and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
(a) Except for small claims disputes in which you or Company seek to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or Company seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and Company waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or use of OCInsights (“Disputes”) resolved in court. Instead, all Disputes will be resolved through confidential binding arbitration held in San Jose, California in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“Rules”) of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”), which are available on the JAMS website and hereby incorporated by reference. You either (i) acknowledge and agree that you have read and understood the rules of JAMS or (ii) waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
(b) You and Company agree that any Dispute is personal to you and Company and that any Dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.
(c) You and Company agree that the enforceability of this Section will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in a court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual. You and Company agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and Company will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Company, Company will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and Company agree that the state or federal courts of the State of Washington and the United States sitting in Santa Clara County, California USA have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
(d) Any claim based upon a Dispute must be filed within one year after such Dispute arose; otherwise, the claim is permanently barred, which means that you and Company will not have the right to assert a claim based upon the Dispute.
(e) You have the right to opt-out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 15 by contacting us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. In order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to opt-out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with Section 16.
15. GOVERNING LAW AND VENUE
These Terms and your access to and use of OCInsights will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of California, USA, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of Washington or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved by the state or federal courts of the State of California and the United States sitting in Santa Clara County, California USA.
For any dispute you have with OCInsights, you agree to first contact OCInsights and attempt to resolve the dispute informally by emailing customer support at email@example.com
If OCInsights has not been able to resolve a dispute with you informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with the Terms or any part of the Agreement by binding arbitration through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes then in effect for AAA. The party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to OCInsights should be sent to 2550 N 1st St, Ste 100, San Jose, CA 95131. The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If OCInsights and you do not resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or OCInsights may commence an arbitration proceeding.
The arbitration will be conducted in Santa Clara County, California, in the United States. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by OCInsights or you will not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or OCInsights is entitled. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement.
Each party will be severally responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with the AAA rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator will include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of both parties.
17. WAIVERS OF CLASS ACTION AND TRIAL BY JURY
You and OCInsights both waive any right to participate in any class action involving disputes between the parties. Both you and OCInsights are each waiving the right to a trial by jury. All claims must be brought in a party’s individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding, and, unless OCInsights agrees otherwise the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims. This class action waiver is an essential part of our arbitration agreement and may not be severed. If for any reason this class action waiver is found unenforceable, then the entire arbitration agreement herein will not apply. However, the waiver of the right to trial by jury set forth in this section will remain in full force and effect.
If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
