ARBITRATION AGREEMENT/CLASS-ACTION WAIVER/DISPUTE RESOLUTION CHOICE OF LAW
How Arbitration Works. Disputes will be resolved solely by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the streamlined Arbitration Rules Procedures of JAMS Inc. ("JAMS") or any successor to JAMS. In the event JAMS is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within fourteen (14) days of the filing of a "Demand for Arbitration", then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by another mutually agreeable arbitration administration service who will hear the case. Unless you and Ayda agree otherwise, any arbitration hearing shall take place in the county of your residence. If you live outside the United States, any arbitration will take place in Los Angeles, California. We encourage you to contact us in advance of filing a claim for arbitration to see if the dispute can be settled prior to arbitration. Please contact us for such purpose at email@example.com or write to us at: Ayda Brands, LLC, c/o Chief Counsel, 3652 Cadman Drive, Los Angeles, CA, 90027.
Waiver of Right to Bring Class Action and Representative Claims. All arbitrations shall proceed on an individual basis. The arbitrator is empowered to resolve the dispute with the same remedies available in court, however, any relief must be individualized to you and shall not affect any other customer. You and Ayda also agree that each may bring claims against the other in arbitration only in your or their respective individual capacities and in so doing you and Ayda hereby waive the right to a trial by jury, to assert or participate in a class action lawsuit or class action arbitration, to assert or participate in a private attorney general lawsuit or private attorney general arbitration, and to assert or participate in any joint or consolidated lawsuit or joint or consolidated arbitration of any kind. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular cause of action, then that cause of action (and only that cause of action) must remain in court and be severed from any arbitration.
Arbitration Costs. Ayda will pay all filing, administrative, arbitrator and hearing costs and waives any rights it may have to recover an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses against you.
You and Ayda agree that, in the event that there are fifty (50) or more individual requests for arbitration of a similar nature filed against Ayda within an approximately thirty-day period (or otherwise in close proximity), JAMS will administer all such similarly situated arbitration demands on a collective basis as a single, consolidated arbitration (subject to a single set of fees, proceeding schedule, and, if required, hearing) before a single arbitrator in accordance with the requirements outlined elsewhere in this section, provided that – in the event that the arbitrator deems it impracticable or inequitable to administer all such claims collectively in a single arbitration – (s)he may group demands for arbitration into groups of not fewer than twenty (20) matters, plus a remainder group as needed (or as otherwise deemed by the arbitrator to be practicable, equitable, and in best keeping with the spirit of this provision) and arbitrate each group of matters as a single, consolidated arbitration (either structure a “Batch Arbitration”). You and Ayda agree (1) to work with JAMS in good faith to facilitate the resolution of disputes on a Batch Arbitration basis and (2) that requests for arbitration are of a “similar nature” if they arise out of the same event, agreement, or factual scenario and raise the same or similar legal issues and seek the same or similar relief. Disagreements over the applicability of this Batch Arbitration process will be settled in a single, consolidated arbitration proceeding that includes all affected parties and is resolved by a single arbitrator subject to the requirements of this section. This Batch Arbitration provision shall in no way be interpreted as authorizing a class or collective arbitration or action of any kind, or any suit or arbitration involving joint or consolidated claims, under any circumstances other than those expressly set forth in this section.
Other Terms & Information. This Arbitration Agreement shall be governed by, and interpreted, construed, and enforced in accordance with, the Federal Arbitration Act and other applicable federal law. To the extent state law applies to any aspect of these Terms, or to any disputes and claims that are covered by the Arbitration Agreement, the law of the State of California will govern. Except as set forth above, if any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable, it will not invalidate the remaining portions of the Arbitration Agreement.
You agree that Ayda may at any time and without notice change the terms, conditions, and notices under which this Site is offered.
You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and Ayda as a result of this Agreement or your use of this Site.
