ARBITRATION; JURY WAIVER; CLASS ACTION WAIVER
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT IMPACTS THE RIGHTS THAT YOU MAY OTHERWISE HAVE. IT PROVIDES FOR RESOLUTION OF MOST DISPUTES THROUGH INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION INSTEAD OF TRIAL COURTS AND CLASS ACTIONS. THIS “ARBITRATION; JURY WAIVER; CLASS ACTION WAIVER” SECTION SURVIVES ANY EXPIRATION OR EARLIER TERMINATION OF THESE TERMS.
Informal Dispute Resolution. As a condition precedent which must be satisfied prior to initiating any arbitration or other action against the other party, both you and Upright Data agree to the following dispute resolution procedure: In the event of any controversy, claim, action or dispute arising out of or related to the Site or the Service (including, without limitation, the Data Participation Network), or the breach, enforcement, interpretation, or validity of these Terms ("Claim"), the party asserting the Claim must first try in good faith to settle such Claim by providing written notice, by first class or registered mail, to the other party describing the facts and circumstances (including any supporting documentation) of the Claim. The party asserting the Claim must allow the receiving party 30 days in which to respond to or settle the Claim.
For purposes of this Section, notices must be sent as follows:
Arbitration. To the extent you cannot resolve any Claim through the informal dispute resolution procedure set forth above, and except as otherwise set forth herein, a Claim must be resolved through binding individual arbitration. You agree to give up your right to go to court to assert or defend your rights under these Terms and with respect to any Claim. You and Upright Data each expressly delegate to the arbitrator the authority to determine the arbitrability of any Claim, including the scope, applicability, validity, and enforceability of this arbitration provision. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a written request to Upright Data at: Upright Data, Inc., 1240 Rosecrans Ave #120, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266, with a copy emailed to email@example.com. You agree that the arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) pursuant to its Consumer Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. The AAA Rules are available on the AAA’s website www.adr.org, or by calling the AAA at (800) 778-7879. In accordance with the AAA Rules, you must also send a copy of your written demand for arbitration to AAA when submitting your request to Upright Data. In the event that the AAA is unable or unwilling to initiate arbitration within fourteen (14) days of receiving a demand for arbitration, arbitration may be conducted by JAMS, Inc. (in accordance with its Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures) or by any other mutually agreeable arbitration administration service. You and Upright Data each agree that these Terms evidence a transaction in interstate commerce and that this arbitration provision will be interpreted and enforced in accordance with the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law and will not be governed by state law. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language. An arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available in a court, including injunctive or declaratory relief to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim, and must follow and enforce these Terms as a court would. Any arbitration shall be confidential, and neither you nor Upright Data may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction. In lieu of arbitration, and notwithstanding anything in this Section to the contrary, either you or Upright Data may bring any individual claim in small claims court consistent with the jurisdictional and dollar limits that may apply, but only if it is brought and maintained as an individual claim. Additionally, and notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, nothing in this Section shall prohibit you or Upright Data from seeking temporary injunctive relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent an imminent or stop an actual breach of these Terms.
Class Action and Jury Waiver. You and Upright Data each agree that any proceeding, whether in arbitration or in court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If a court or arbitrator determines in an action between you and Upright Data that this class action waiver is unenforceable, the arbitration agreement set forth above will be void as to you. If for any reason a Claim proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, you and we each waive any right to a jury trial. ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR THE SITE, THE SERVICE, OR THE DATA PARTICIPATION NETWORK MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM ACCRUES, OTHERWISE SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED. 17.
