DISPUTE RESOLUTION DMMEHERE AND USER MUTUALLY AGREE TO RESOLVE ANY AND ALL COVERED JUSTICIABLE DISPUTES BETWEEN THEM EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION, ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, INSTEAD OF A COURT OR JURY TRIAL. This means you may not bring any legal action, including any class action, against DMMeHere, nor may you participate in such an action brought by another person. The terms of this Section (this “arbitration agreement”) requires the arbitration of any claims that DMMeHere or User may have against the other or against any of their officers, directors, employees, subcontractors, or agents in their capacity as such or otherwise, direct or indirect parents and subsidiaries, and affiliates, agents, successors or assigns, each and all of which may enforce this arbitration agreement as direct or third-party beneficiaries.
This arbitration agreement is intended by DMMeHere and User to be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16) (the “FAA”) to the fullest extent permitted by law. To the extent that the FAA is found to not apply to any issue that arises under
11
this arbitration agreement or the enforcement hereof, then that issue shall be resolved under the laws of the state of California. DMMeHere and User mutually agree, in particular but without limitation, that if a court of competent jurisdiction finds that the FAA does not require or provide for enforcement of this arbitration agreement, then the laws of the State of Minnesota regarding enforcement of arbitration provisions shall apply. This arbitration agreement applies to any and all claims or controversies, past, present or future, arising out of or relating to these Terms, this arbitration agreement, User’s receipt of services or use of the Platform, any payments made by User through the Platform, the termination of these Terms, claims of harassment, retaliation, or discrimination, and all other aspects of a User’s relationship (or the termination of its relationship) with DMMeHere, whether arising under federal, state or local statutory and/or common law. User and DMMeHere agree that the mutual obligations contained in these Terms and to arbitrate disputes provide adequate consideration for this arbitration agreement. If either party initiates arbitration, the initiating party must notify the other party in writing via U.S. Mail, or hand delivery within the applicable statute of limitations period. This demand for arbitration must include: (i) the name and address of the party seeking arbitration; (ii) a statement of the legal and factual basis of the claim; and (iii) a description of the remedy sought. Any demand for arbitration by User must be delivered to DMMeHere as provided in these Terms under “Notice.” Any demand for arbitration by DMMeHere may be delivered to User at User’s home or business address, as set out in User’s then-current Account. The Arbitrator will resolve all disputes regarding the timeliness or propriety of the demand for arbitration. CLASS AND COLLECTIVE ACTION WAIVERS DMMeHere and User mutually agree that by entering into this arbitration agreement, both waive their right to have any covered dispute or claim brought, heard or arbitrated as a class action and/or collective action, and an Arbitrator will not have any authority to hear or arbitrate any class and/or collective claim (“Class Action Waiver”). Notwithstanding any other clause contained in this arbitration agreement or the AAA Rules, as defined below, any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an Arbitrator. The Class Action Waiver will be severable from this arbitration agreement in any case, in which (1) the dispute is filed as a class and/or collective action and (2) there is a final judicial determination that all or part of the Class Action Waiver is invalid, unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable. In such case, the class and/or collective action to that extent must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction, but the portion of the Class Action Waiver that is enforceable shall be enforced in arbitration.
12
Except as otherwise stated in this arbitration agreement, any arbitration shall be governed by the American Arbitration Association Commercial Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”), subject to the following:
(a) The arbitration shall be heard by one Arbitrator selected in accordance with the AAA Rules. Unless the parties agree otherwise, the Arbitrator shall be an attorney experienced in the law in the underlying dispute and licensed to practice law in the state in which the arbitration is convened or a former judge from any jurisdiction.
(b) Unless User and DMMeHere agree otherwise, the arbitration will be conducted within 25 miles of the primary location in which User received the Services, unless the parties agree otherwise. If the claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the Arbitrator by the parties, unless the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary.
(c) Unless applicable law provides otherwise, as determined by the Arbitrator, the parties agree that they will equally split all of the Arbitrator’s fees and costs. Each party will pay for its own costs and attorneys’ fees, if any. However, if any party prevails on a claim that affords the prevailing party attorneys’ fees, the Arbitrator may award reasonable fees to the prevailing party as provided by law. If the law (including the common law) of the jurisdiction in which the arbitration is held requires a different allocation of arbitral fees and costs for this arbitration agreement to be enforceable, then such law will be followed, and any disputes in that regard will be resolved by the Arbitrator.
(d) The Arbitrator is authorized to issue orders (including subpoenas to third parties) allowing the parties to conduct discovery sufficient to allow each party to prepare that party’s claims and/or defenses, taking into consideration that arbitration is intended to be a speedy and efficient method for resolving disputes.
(e) Except as provided in the Class Action Waiver, the Arbitrator may award all remedies to which a party is entitled under applicable law and which would otherwise be available in a court of law, but shall not be empowered to award any remedies that would not have been available in a court of law for the claims presented in arbitration. The Arbitrator shall apply the state or federal substantive law, or both, as is applicable and be bound by applicable principles of law.
(f) The Arbitrator may hear motions to dismiss and/or motions for summary judgment and will apply the standards of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure governing such motions.
13
(g) The Arbitrator’s decision or award shall be in writing with findings of fact and conclusions of law. Judgment may be entered on the Arbitrator’s decision or award in any court of competent jurisdiction.
(h) Either DMMeHere or User may apply to a court of competent jurisdiction for temporary or preliminary injunctive relief on the ground that without such relief the arbitration provided in this Section may be rendered ineffectual.
Regardless of any other terms of this arbitration agreement, claims may be brought before, and remedies awarded by, an administrative agency to the full extent applicable law permits access to such an agency notwithstanding the existence of an agreement to arbitrate governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (such as the National Labor Relations Board, the U.S. Department of Labor or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission). This arbitration agreement does not apply to any claim that may not be arbitrated as provided by an Act of Congress. The AAA Rules referenced herein may be found at www.adr.org or by searching for “AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules” using a service such as www.Google.com or www.Bing.com. This arbitration agreement is the full and complete agreement relating to the formal resolution of disputes covered by this arbitration agreement. If any portion of this arbitration agreement is deemed unenforceable, the remainder of this arbitration agreement will be enforceable. This arbitration agreement survives indefinitely after the termination of these Terms and/or after User ceases any relationship with DMMeHere. Notwithstanding any contrary language, this arbitration agreement may not be modified or terminated absent a writing signed (electronically or otherwise) by both User and an authorized representative of DMMeHere. CHOICE OF LAW These Terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of ___________________________, U.S.A., without giving effect to any conflict of law principles, except as may be otherwise provided in supplemental terms applicable to your region. Any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to incidents or accidents resulting in personal injury (including but not limited to sexual assault or harassment claims) that you allege occurred in connection with your use of the Services, whether before or after the date you agreed to the Terms, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state in which the incident or accident occurred.
