THE FOLLOWING ARBITRATION PROVISION STATES THAT YOU AND FAIRLAWNGIG AGREE TO RESOLVE CERTAIN DISPUTES THROUGH ARBITRATION. YOU MAY OPT OUT OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION (EXCEPT WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL) WITHIN 30 DAYS OF THE COMMENCEMENT OF THIS AGREEMENT, AS DESCRIBED IN THE OPT OUT PROVISION BELOW. IF YOU DO NOT OPT OUT OF THIS PROVISION, YOU WILL BE BOUND TO SETTLE YOUR DISPUTE IN THE FOLLOWING MEANS.
A “Dispute” includes any claim, dispute or controversy between you and FairlawnGig and/or the City of Fairlawn or any of its respective officers, employees, and agents, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort(including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, negligence, or any other intentional tort) or other legal or equitable theory.
You and FairlawnGig agree that you will try to resolve any Dispute informally before proceeding to arbitration. Customer Disputes should be directed to FairlawnGig customer service at the number listed on the FairlawnGig website. If we are unable to resolve the Dispute informally, then except as otherwise described below, You and FairlawnGig agree that any controversy or claim arising out of or related to this agreement (but not any claims arising out of commercial activities or the theft or other unauthorized receipt of any FairlawnGig service on the part of you) shall be resolved by arbitration commenced within one year under the then-current commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association (or any consumer rules adopted by the American Arbitration Association to which both parties agree). No claim subject to arbitration under this agreement may be combined with a claim subject to resolution before a court of law or equity. The arbitrability of Disputes shall be determined by the arbitrator. Any award of the arbitrator shall be in writing and shall state the reasons for the award. Judgment upon an award may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall not have the power to award any damages in excess of the applicable limits set forth in or excluded under Sections 10, 11 or 13 of this Agreement. The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §1-16, shall govern the interpretation and enforcement of this paragraph. Each party shall bear its own expenses and the cost of arbitrator(s) shall be shared except that Customer may recover his/her filing and arbitrator(s)’ fees if Customer is the prevailing party. The parties expressly waive any entitlement to attorneys’ fees or punitive damages to the fullest extent permitted by law. Consolidated or class action arbitrations shall not be permitted. The arbitrator shall not have the power to order pre-hearing discovery of documents or the taking of depositions, but may compel attendance of witnesses and the production of documents at the hearing. In lieu of arbitration, you and FairlawnGig may bring Disputes before a small claims court, if the Dispute falls within the jurisdiction of the small claims court. If you bring a claim in small claims court, where legally permissible, you waive discovery in the proceeding, meaning that you agree you will not be able to depose FairlawnGig witnesses or seek non-public documents.
Opt out. You may opt out of the above arbitration provision by notifying FairlawnGig in writing within 30 days of the commencement of this Agreement, as defined in Section 1, by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or a letter via U.S. mail to FairlawnGig, Attn: Customer Service, 3300 Fairlawn Service Drive, Fairlawn Ohio, 44333, stating that you opt out of this arbitration provision. Your decision to opt out of the arbitration provision will not affect any other portion of this Agreement with FairlawnGig and will remain in effect regardless of any future modifications to this section by FairlawnGig or your agreement to any new terms of service under this Agreement. If you enter into a new agreement with FairlawnGig and wish to opt out of any portion of that new agreement, you will need to follow the opt out provisions specific to that agreement.
Jury Trial and Class Action Waiver. YOU AND FAIRLAWNGIG WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY. YOU AND FAIRLAWNGIG FURTHER AGREE THAT WE MAY ONLY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST ONE ANOTHER IN YOUR OR FAIRLAWNGIG’s INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN A CLASS ACTION. THIS WAIVER SHALL APPLY TO ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT. You and FAIRLAWNGIG agree that this class action waiver is an essential part of our arbitration provision and if the waiver of class action is not enforceable, then the entirety of this Section 14 arbitration provision shall be null and void, except for the waiver of the right to trial by jury.
One Year to Bring Claim. YOU MUST CONTACT FAIRLAWNGIG WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR OF THE OCCURRENCE OF THE EVENT OR FACTS GIVING RISE TO YOUR CLAIM (EXCEPT FOR BILLING DISPUTES WHICH ARE GOVERNED BY SECTION 5), OR YOU WAIVE THE RIGHT, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, TO PURSUE THAT CLAIM.
Survival. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement.
