21. Dispute Resoluation
21.2. Notwithstanding Section 20.1 above, nothing in these Terms of Service will be deemed to waive, preclude or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court; (b) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state or local agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in aid of arbitration from a court of competent jurisdiction; or (d) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
21.3. Any arbitration between You and Us will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms of Service, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
21.4. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by U.S. Mail (“Notice”). Our address for Notice is: 8 The Green, Ste B, Dover, DE 19901, Attn: Chief Executive Officer. The Notice must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, You or We may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by You or Us must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in Your favor with a monetary award that exceeds the last written settlement amount offered by Us prior to selection of an arbitrator, We will pay You the highest of the following: (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any; (ii) the last written settlement amount offered by Us in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator's award; or (iii) $15,000.
21.5. If You commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms of Service, We will reimburse You for Your payment of the filing fee, unless Your claim is for more than $15,000 or as set forth below, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in the State of New York, but if the claim is for $15,000 or less, You may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (a) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (b) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (c) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of Your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of Your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, You agree to reimburse Us for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise Your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. Each party agrees that such written decision, and information exchanged during arbitration, will be kept confidential except to the extent necessary to enforce or permit limited judicial review of the award. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits. Notwithstanding anything in these Terms of Service to the contrary, and for the avoidance of doubt, the arbitrator can award injunctive relief as a remedy in any arbitration required under this Section 20.
21.6. YOU AND We AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both You and We agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
21.7. Except as otherwise provided in these Terms of Service, if We makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to Our address for Notice, You may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to Our address for Notice, in which case this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes You rejected, will continue to govern any disputes between You and Us.
21.8. If Section 11.6 above is found to be unenforceable or if the entirety of this Section 11 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 11 will be null and void, and, in that case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 12.2 will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms of Service.
