ARBITRATION AND DISPUTES

All claims and disputes, excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief in connection with this TOS that cannot be resolved informally shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this Arbitration Agreement. This section shall apply to USERS and MFD, and to any subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, assigns, suppliers and licensors as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of the SERVICES.

Before either party may seek arbitration, the party must first send to the other party a written Notice of Dispute (“NOTICE”) describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and the requested relief. If the parties do not resolve the claim or dispute within thirty (30) days after the NOTICE is received, either party may begin an arbitration proceeding. 

Arbitration will be initiated through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), an established alternative dispute resolution provider (“ADR Provider”) that offers arbitration as set forth in this Section. If AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties will agree to select an alternative ADR Provider. If USERS resides outside of the U.S. the arbitrator will give the parties reasonable notice of the date, time and place of any oral hearings. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. 

If either party pursues arbitration, the arbitration action must be initiated and/or demanded within the statute of limitations (i.e., the legal deadline for filing a claim) and within any deadline imposed under the AAA Rules for the pertinent claim.

If arbitration is initiated, the arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of the parties, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator will have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator will have the authority to award monetary damages, and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law. The arbitrator will issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon the parties.

Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Arbitration section, may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted.
