Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution and is often considered a faster, more convenient, and less expensive way to resolve disputes. We will make every reasonable effort to informally resolve any complaints, disputes, or disagreements that you may have with us. However, if those efforts fail, then any and all complaints, disputes, disagreements, controversies or claims arising from or relating to this Agreement or related to any services rendered shall be settled exclusively by binding arbitration under the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), in conformity with the procedures of the California Arbitration Act (Cal. Code Civ. Proc. sec 1280 et seq., including section 1283.05 and all of the Act’s other mandatory and permissive rights to discovery). The FAA applies to this Agreement because the Company’s business involves interstate commerce. Included within the scope of this Agreement are all disputes, whether based on tort, contract, statute (including, but not limited to state or federal law or regulation), equitable law, or otherwise. You and the Company acknowledge that entering into this Agreement, you make no representation or demonstration of support or rejection of concerted activity. By this binding arbitration provision, you acknowledge and agree that you are giving up your respective rights to the following: trial by jury of any claim you may have, right to engage in discovery except as provided in FAA rules, and the right to certain remedies and forms of relief. Moreover, you will not have the right to bring or participate in any class action or similar proceeding in court or in Arbitration. The prevailing party shall bear any and all Arbitration-related costs, fees, and expenses. This binding arbitration Agreement shall not be construed to allow or permit the consolidation or joinder of other claims or controversies involving any other employees or parties, or permit such claims or controversies to proceed as a class or collective action. No arbitrator shall have the authority under this agreement to order any such class or collective action. By entering into this agreement, you are agreeing to waive any substantive or procedural rights that you may have to bring an action on a class or collective basis. In addition to any other requirements imposed by law, the arbitrator selected to hear claims under this Agreement shall be a retired California Superior Court Judge, or an otherwise qualified individual to whom the parties mutually agree, and shall be subject to disqualification on the same grounds as would apply to a judge of such court. All rules of pleading (including the right of demurrer), all rules of evidence, all rights to resolution of the dispute by means of motions for summary judgment, judgment on the pleadings, and judgment under Code of Civil Procedure Section 631.8 shall apply and be observed. The arbitrator shall have the immunity of a judicial officer from civil liability when acting in the capacity of an arbitrator, which immunity supplements any other existing immunity. Likewise, all communications during or in connection with the arbitration proceedings are privileged in accordance with Cal. Civil Code Section 47(b). As reasonably required to allow full use and benefit of this agreement’s modifications to the Act’s procedures, the arbitrator shall extend the times set by the Act for the giving of notices and setting of hearings. Awards shall include the arbitrator’s written reasoned opinion. Resolution of all disputes shall be based solely upon the law governing the claims and defenses pleaded, and the arbitrator may not invoke any basis (including but not limited to, notions of “just cause”) other than such controlling law.
Governing Law and General
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to choice of law principles, except for the Arbitration Agreement above. The waiver of any provision of the Agreement shall not be considered a waiver of any other provision or of the Company’s right to require strict observance of each of the terms herein. If any provision of the Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid for any reason, that provision shall be severable, and all other provisions shall remain in full force and effect. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between us relating to your use of the Site.
