Arbitration Clause & Class Action Waiver â€“ Important â€“ Please Review as this Affects Your Legal Rights
Arbitration. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US OR OUR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS OR EMPLOYEES IN THEIR CAPACITY AS SUCH (WHETHER OR NOT SUCH DISPUTE INVOLVES A THIRD PARTY) WITH REGARD TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH US, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DISPUTES RELATED TO THESE TERMS, YOUR USE OF THE SMARTTOOLS SERVICE, AND/OR RIGHTS OF PRIVACY OR PUBLICITY, WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION UNDER THE JAMS, INC. (â€œJAMSâ€) RULES FOR ARBITRATION OF CONSUMER-RELATED DISPUTES IN EFFECT AT THE TIME OF DISPUTE, AND YOU AND WE HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT EITHER PARTY MAY SEEK INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER APPROPRIATE EQUITABLE RELIEF IN ANY U.S. COURT HAVING JURISDICTION TO PROTECT AGAINST AN INFRINGEMENT OR MISAPPROPRIATION OF THAT PARTYâ€™S INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS. DISCOVERY AND RIGHTS TO APPEAL IN ARBITRATION ARE GENERALLY MORE LIMITED THAN IN A LAWSUIT, AND OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU AND WE WOULD HAVE IN COURT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.
Small Claims Court. As an alternative, you or we may bring a claim in your local â€œsmall claimsâ€ court, if permitted by that small claims courtâ€™s rules and within such courtâ€™s jurisdiction, unless the action is transferred, removed or appealed to a different court. You may bring such claims only on your own behalf.
Class Action Waiver. Neither you nor we will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement to arbitrate. YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST US, INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another personâ€™s account, if we are a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and not by any state law concerning arbitration. If JAMS is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within 160 days of filing, then either we or you can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the American Arbitration Association. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms.
Time Limitation. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of, related to or connected with your relationship with us, including the use of the SmartTools Service or these Terms, must be filed within one year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever banned.
Opt-Out. If you do not wish to be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions in this Section, you must notify us in writing within 30 days of the date that you first use the SmartTools Service or 30 days from the date this Section was last updated (unless a longer period is required by applicable law). Your written notification must include your name and mailing address, your username and the email address you used to set up your SmartTools account (if you have one), and a statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with us through arbitration and demonstrating compliance with the 30-day time limit to opt out. You must mail your opt-out notice to this address: Smart Tools Plus, LLC, Attn: Dispute Resolution Opt-out, 20636 Castlemaine Circle, Strongsville, OH 44149. If you do not notify us in accordance with this Section, you agree to be bound by the arbitration and class-action waiver provisions set out above, including any revisions we make to these Terms after the date of your acceptance. If we make any changes to this Section (other than a change to the address at which we will receive notices), you may reject the change by sending us written notice to the above address within 30 days of the effective date of the change. Any opt-out notice affects only these Terms and not any other agreements between you and us.
Fees. Your arbitration fees will be limited to those fees set forth in the JAMS Rules for Arbitration of Consumer-Related Disputes with the remainder paid by SmartTools.
Survival. This Section will survive the termination of your relationship with us. If any of the prohibitions against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable under applicable law, then such provisions will be null and void and severed from these Terms.
These Terms will be governed by the laws of the state of Ohio, United States of America, without regard to principles of conflicts of law that would require a different result. The Uniform Commercial Code, the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act, and the United Nations Convention of Controls for International Sale of Goods will not apply. Subject to the foregoing agreements under â€œArbitration Clause & Class Action Waiver,â€ any other action arising out of or relating to these Terms or your use of the SmartTools Service must be commenced in the state or federal courts located in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, United States of America, and you consent to the jurisdiction of those courts.
