DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND ARBITRATION
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS. BY AGREEING TO BINDING ARBITRATION, YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO LITIGATE DISPUTES THROUGH A COURT AND TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE YOUR CASE.
In order to expedite and control the cost of disputes, Aenea and you agree that any legal or equitable claim, dispute, action or proceeding arising from or related to your use of the Services or these Terms of Service (“Dispute”) will be resolved as follows to the fullest extent permitted by law:
Notice. In the event of a Dispute, you or Aenea must give the other a written statement that sets forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the Dispute, and a proposed solution (a “Notice of Dispute”). You must send any Notice of Dispute by first class U.S. Mail to Aenea at 1000 Johnnie Dodds Blvd., Suite 103-303, Mount Pleasant, SC 29464 and also via e-mail to [email protected]. Aenea will send any Notice of Dispute to you by first class U.S. Mail to your address if Aenea has it, or otherwise to your email address. You and Aenea will attempt in good faith to resolve any Dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the Notice of Dispute is sent. After sixty (60) days, you or Aenea may commence arbitration.
Any Dispute which has not been resolved by negotiation as provided herein within sixty (60) days or such time period as you and Aenea may otherwise agree, shall be finally resolved by binding arbitration. You are giving up the right to litigate (or participate in as a party or class member) all Disputes in court before a judge or jury. Instead, all Disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act. The place of arbitration shall be Charleston County, South Carolina. Any court with jurisdiction over the parties may enforce the arbitrator’s award.
Class Action Waiver. Any proceedings to resolve or litigate any Dispute in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis. Neither you nor Aenea will seek to have any Dispute heard as a class action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings.
Arbitration Procedures. Any arbitration will be conducted by JAMS under the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“JAMS Rules”) in effect at the time the Dispute is filed. You may request a telephonic or in-person hearing by following the JAMS Rules. In a dispute involving $10,000 or less, any hearing will be telephonic unless the arbitrator finds good cause to hold an in-person hearing instead. To the extent the forum provided by JAMS is unavailable, Aenea and you agree to select a mutually agreeable alternative dispute resolution service and that such alternative dispute resolution service shall apply the JAMS Rules. The arbitrator may award the same damages to you individually as a court could. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief to you only individually, and only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim.
Whoever files the arbitration will pay the initial filing fee. If Aenea files, then Aenea will pay; if you file, then you will pay unless you get a fee waiver under the applicable arbitration rules. Each party will bear the expense of that party’s attorneys, experts, and witnesses, and other expenses, regardless of which party prevails, but a party may recover any or all expenses from another party if the arbitrator, applying applicable law, so determines.
Filing Period. To the extent permitted by law, any Dispute under these Terms must be filed within one (1) year in an arbitration proceeding. The one-year period begins when the events giving rise to the Dispute first occur. If a Dispute is not filed within one year, it is permanently barred.
Venue. In the event that any Dispute cannot be resolved by binding arbitration, you agree that such Dispute will be filed only in the state or federal courts in and for Charleston County, South Carolina and each of you and Aenea hereby consent and submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating any such action. Notwithstanding this, Aenea shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive or other equitable relief to protect or enforce its intellectual property rights in any court of competent jurisdiction.
If any provision of the Terms or any Guidelines is held to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be limited or eliminated from the Terms to the minimum extent necessary and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
Assignment. The Terms of Service, and any rights granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you without Aenea’s prior written consent, but may be assigned by Aenea without consent or any restriction. Any assignment attempted to be made in violation of the Terms of Service shall be null and void.
Headings. The heading references herein are for convenience purposes only, do not constitute a part of the Terms of Service, and will not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions hereof.
Disclosures. The Services are hosted in the United States, and the services provided hereunder are offered by Aenea: 1000 Johnnie Dodds Blvd. Suite 103-303, Mount Pleasant, SC 29464; [email protected].
