You and The Clowder Group agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to The Clowder Group Licensing Permissiions service, including our website, user interfaces, these Purchase Agreement and this Arbitration Agreement, shall be determined by binding arbitration instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You agree that, by agreeing to these Purchase Agreement, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and The Clowder Group are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement and the termination of your The Clowder Group membership.
If you elect to seek arbitration, you must first send to THE CLOWDER GROUP, by certified mail, a written Notice of your claim ("Notice"). The Notice to The Clowder Group should be addressed to: General Counsel, THE CLOWDER GROUP, LLC, 20681 N. 56th Ave. Glendale, AZ 85308 ("Notice Address"). If The Clowder Group elects to seek arbitration, it will send, by certified mail, a written Notice to the address used on your order. A Notice, whether sent by you or by THE CLOWDER GROUP, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If The Clowder Group and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or The Clowder Group may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by The Clowder Group or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator. You may download or copy a form Notice and a form to initiate arbitration at www.adr.org. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement. Unless The Clowder Group and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the state of Arizona. If your claim is for US10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds US10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. If the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of The Clowder Group’ last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected (or if The Clowder Group did not make a settlement offer before an arbitrator was selected), then The Clowder Group will pay you the amount of the award or US1,000, whichever is greater. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THE FOREGOING PURCHASE AGREEMENT, DO NOT OPEN/DOWNLOAD OR USE THIS PRODUCT.
