Any disputes between you and Wizz will be handled through arbitration, but first contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to try to resolve the dispute informally.
YOU AGREE THAT, BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, THE U.S. FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT GOVERNS THE INTERPRETATION AND ENFORCEMENT OF THIS AGREEMENT, AND THAT YOU AND WE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms.
16.2. If you have a dispute with us relating to the Wizz Service, in the first instance please contact us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally (“Informal Resolution”). If we do not reach an agreed-upon solution within ninety (90) days from the time the informal dispute resolution is commenced (the first date You first contacted customer support), then either party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to formally resolve all claims and disputes between them. To the extent permitted by applicable law, any dispute must be filed within one year from the date Informal Resolution was commenced or such claim is barred.
This arbitration provision is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and the Federal Arbitration Act shall apply to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, and formation of the agreement to arbitrate notwithstanding any other choice of law provision contained herein. The arbitration provisions shall survive termination, if any, of this agreement. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of the agreement to arbitrate, including without limitation any claim that all or any part of this agreement to arbitrate is void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Your arbitration fees and Your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures or Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, as appropriate, but shall not incorporate JAMS Class Action Procedures or any JAMS rules or procedures governing, allowing, or permitting class, collective, or representative actions or proceedings. The arbitration shall also be governed, as appropriate, by JAMS Consumer Minimum Standards, including the then-current limit on arbitration filing fees. The JAMS rules governing the arbitration may be accessed at http://www.jamsadr.com/ or by calling JAMS at (800) 352-5267.
The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial, to the extent allowed by law. The parties further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
Unless You and We agree otherwise, any arbitration hearing will take place in the County and State where You reside. You and We agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any federal or state court in Los Angeles County, California, in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
16.4. Class/Collective/Representative/Private Attorney General Waivers- YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both You and We agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class, collective, or representative proceeding. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class, collective, or representative action waiver set forth in this Section is void or unenforceable for any reason or that arbitration can proceed on a class, collective, or representative basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, as an exception to resolving all disputes through binding arbitration, to the extent that a dispute arises from:
(i) a violation of enforcement of Wizz intellectual property rights in any manner (but not, for clarity, a dispute or claim related to the license granted to You under these Terms); or
(ii) allegations of theft, piracy, unauthorized Use, or a violation of the United States Computer Fraud and Abuse. In that circumstance, the parties agree that either party may seek injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in court, subject to further provisions below.
16.5. Opt-Out – You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the binding arbitration and class, collective, and representative action waiver provisions set forth herein by sending written notice of Your decision to opt-out to the following address firstname.lastname@example.org. The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of the earlier of Your first download of the applicable Application or Your commencing Use of the Application or Service. Your request will only be effective and enforceable if You can prove the request was postmarked within the applicable 30-day deadline. Otherwise, You shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of Section 10. If You opt-out of these arbitration provisions, We also will not be bound by arbitration and class, collective, and representative action waiver provisions set forth herein.
