Dispute Resolution and Arbitration; Class Action Waiver. Please read this Section 15 carefully. It affects your rights. Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to a customer’s satisfaction by contacting us at email@example.com. This Section 15 facilitates the prompt and efficient resolution of any disputes that may arise between you and Whatsgoodly. Arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution in which persons with a dispute waive their rights to file a lawsuit, to proceed in court and to a jury trial, and instead submit their disputes to a neutral third person (or arbitrator) for a binding decision. You have the right to opt-out of this Section 15 (as explained below), which means you would retain your right to litigate your disputes in a court, either before a judge or jury. Please read this Section 15 carefully. It provides that all Disputes between you and Whatsgoodly (whether initiated by you or Whatsgoodly) shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court. In the absence of this arbitration agreement, you may otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring claims in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate in or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including, but not limited to, class actions). Except as otherwise provided, entering into this agreement constitutes a waiver of your right to litigate claims and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow this agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney’s fees). For the purpose of this Section 15, “Whatsgoodly” means Whatsgoodly and its parents, subsidiary, and affiliate companies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents. The term “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Whatsgoodly regarding any aspect of your relationship with Whatsgoodly, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Section 15 (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). “Dispute” is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced, and shall include any claims against other parties relating to services or products provided or billed to you (such as Whatsgoodly’s licensors, suppliers, dealers or third-party vendors) whenever you also assert claims against us in the same proceeding. WE EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PROVISION.
Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution. For all Disputes, whether pursued in court or arbitration, you must first give Whatsgoodly an opportunity to resolve the Dispute. You must commence this process by mailing written notification to Whatsgoodly, 14976 La Cumbre Dr. Pacific Palisades, CA 90272. That written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, (3) a written description of your Claim, and (4) a description of the specific relief you seek. If Whatsgoodly does not resolve the Dispute within 45 days after it receives your written notification, you may pursue your Dispute in arbitration. You may pursue your Dispute in a court only under the circumstances described below.
Exclusions from Arbitration/Right to Opt Out. Notwithstanding the above, you or Whatsgoodly may choose to pursue a Dispute in court and not by arbitration if (a) the Dispute qualifies, it may be initiated in small claims court; or (b) YOU OPT-OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT YOU FIRST CONSENT TO THIS AGREEMENT (the “Opt-Out Deadline”). You may opt out of this Section 15 by mailing written notification to Whatsgoodly, 14976 La Cumbre Dr. Pacific Palisades, CA 90272. Your written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, and (3) a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with Whatsgoodly through arbitration. Your decision to opt-out of this Section 15 will have no adverse effect on your relationship with Whatsgoodly. Any opt-out request received after the Opt-Out Deadline will not be valid and you must pursue your Dispute in arbitration or small claims court.
Arbitration Procedures. If this Section 15 applies and the Dispute is not resolved as provided above (Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution) either you or Whatsgoodly may initiate arbitration proceedings. The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), www.adr.org, or JAMS, www.jamsadr.com, will arbitrate all Disputes, and the arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator. The arbitration shall be commenced as an individual arbitration, and shall in no event be commenced as a class arbitration. All issues shall be for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this Section 15. For arbitration before AAA, for Disputes of less than $75,000, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will apply; for Disputes involving $75,000 or more, the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. In either instance, the AAA’s Optional Rules For Emergency Measures Of Protection shall apply. The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. For arbitration before JAMS, the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures and the JAMS Recommended Arbitration Discovery Protocols For Domestic, Commercial Cases will apply. The JAMS rules are available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-5267. This Section 15 governs in the event it conflicts with the applicable arbitration rules. Under no circumstances will class action procedures or rules apply to the arbitration. The arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law (including, if applicable, the Federal Arbitration Act) consistent with the applicable statute of limitations or condition precedent to suit.
Class Action Waiver. Except as otherwise provided in this Section 15, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, consolidated action or private attorney general action) unless both you and Whatsgoodly specifically agree to do so following initiation of the arbitration. If you choose to pursue your Dispute in court by opting out of the Section 15, as specified above, this Class Action Waiver will not apply to you. Neither you, nor any other user of the Services can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, consolidated, or representative proceeding without having complied with the opt-out requirements above.
Jury Waiver. You understand and agree that by entering into this Agreement you and Whatsgoodly are each waiving the right to a jury trial or a trial before a judge in a public court. In the absence of this Provision, you and Whatsgoodly might otherwise have had a right or opportunity to bring Disputes in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including class actions). Except as otherwise provided below, those rights are waived. Other rights that you would have if you went to court, such as the right to appeal and to certain types of discovery, may be more limited or may also be waived.
Severability. If any clause in this Section 15 (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed, and the remainder of this Agreement will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, this entire Section 15 will be unenforceable and the Dispute will be decided by a court.
Continuation. This Section 15 shall survive the termination of your service with Whatsgoodly or its affiliates. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Whatsgoodly makes any change to this Section 15 (other than a change to the Notice Address), you may reject any such change and require Whatsgoodly to adhere to the language in this Section 15 if a dispute between us arises.
General. Whatsgoodly prefers to advise you if we feel you are not complying with these Terms and to recommend any necessary corrective action. However, certain violations of these Terms, as determined by Whatsgoodly, may result in immediate termination of your access to the Services without prior notice to you. The Federal Arbitration Act, California state law and applicable U.S. federal law, without regard to the choice or conflicts of law provisions, will govern these Terms. Foreign laws do not apply. The United Nations on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and any laws based on the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (UCITA) shall not apply to this Agreement. If any of these Terms is found to be inconsistent with applicable law, then such term shall be interpreted to reflect the intentions of the parties, and no other terms will be modified. Whatsgoodly’s failure to enforce any of these Terms is not a waiver of such term. These Terms are the entire agreement between you and Whatsgoodly and supersede all prior or contemporaneous negotiations, discussions or agreements between you and Whatsgoodly about the Services. The proprietary rights, disclaimer of warranties, representations made by you, indemnities, limitations of liability and general provisions shall survive any termination of these Terms. Contact Us. If you have any questions about these Terms or otherwise need to contact Whatsgoodly for any reason, you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
