Section 18 Mandatory Arbitration; Class Action Waiver. Back to top This Rental Agreement is governed by, and must be construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the state of Illinois, excluding principles of conflicts of laws.
You agree that any dispute or Claim relating in any way to Your use of the Services will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that You may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this Rental Agreement.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of this Rental Agreement as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, You must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing Your claim to Motivate International Inc. at 5202 Third Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11220. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Procedure Rules in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by JAMS's rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, we will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. 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.
YOU AND MOTIVATE EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. If for any reason a Claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration You and Motivate each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that You or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending written notice of Your decision to opt out to email@example.com with the subject line, "DIVVY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER OPT-OUT." The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of Your first use of the Services, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those paragraphs. If You opt out of these arbitration provisions, Motivate also will not be bound by them.
This Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section shall survive any termination of your Account or the Platform.
In the event that the arbitration provisions above are found not to apply to You or to a particular claim or dispute, either as a result of Your decision to opt out of the arbitration provisions or as a result of a decision by the arbitrator or a court order, You agree that any Claim or dispute must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in Cook County, Illinois. You and Motivate agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Cook County, Illinois for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.
Further, if Motivate prevails in litigation against a Member to enforce its rights under this Rental Agreement, Motivate shall be entitled to its costs, expenses, and reasonable attorneys’ fees (whether incurred at or in preparation for trial, appeal, or otherwise) incurred in resolving or settling the dispute, in addition to all other damages or awards to which Motivate may be entitled.
