- Mandatory Arbitration and Dispute Resolution
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY, AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
- We hope we never have a dispute, but if we do and subject to the provisions of clauses 5.3.4 and 13.4, You may send us the details of your concern to [email protected] and it is agreed that You and My Crew Kit will try for 60 days to resolve the dispute informally.
- If we are not able to informally resolve your complaint, You and My Crew Kit agree to individual binding arbitration under JAMS Alternative Dispute resolution (“JAMS”) and the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) and not to sue in court in front of a judge or jury. The arbitration will be conducted under the JAMS Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes and the arbitrator’s decision will be final except for a limited right of review under the FAA.
- The following applies to any arbitration proceedings between You and My Crew Kit:
- Before moving an unresolved informal dispute into arbitration, You must first send Us a Notice of Dispute describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and the specific relief sought. This notice must be sent via email [email protected].
- Any arbitration must be commenced by filing a demand for arbitration with JAMS within (1 year from when it first could be filed, failing which it is permanently barred. If any applicable law prohibits a one-year limitation period for asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period permitted by any applicable law.
- Whenever feasible, the arbitration will be held telephonically unless the arbitrator finds good cause to hold an in-person hearing instead. You may choose the location of any in-person hearing from either Your country of residence or, if you are a business, the county of Your principal place of business or My Crew Kit’s principal place of business in Florida.
- The enforcement of the arbitrator’s award will be controlled by and conducted in conformity with the FAA. Judgment upon any award may be entered in any court holding jurisdiction.
- Notwithstanding our agreement to arbitrate disputes as provided for above, the following exceptions will apply to the resolution of disputes between us:
- Small Claims Court. If the claim qualifies, either You or My Crew Kit may bring an action in small claims court in Florida. Any small claims court action must be filed within one year from when it first could be filed, failing which it will be permanently barred.
- Injunctive relief. My Crew Kit may bring a lawsuit against You in any court of competent jurisdiction solely for injunctive relief to stop any unauthorized use or abuse of the Services or any intellectual property infringement. In these instances, My Crew Kit may seek injunctive relief without first engaging in the informal dispute resolution or arbitration process, as described above in these Terms.
- Disputes not Covered by Arbitration. In the event that arbitration is found to be inapplicable or unenforceable for any reason, or if You exercise the option to opt-out of arbitration, as provided below, the dispute will be brought under judicial proceedings in federal or state courts in Florida, and You and My Crew Kit consent to personal jurisdiction and the exclusive venue in such courts.
- Option to Opt Out of Arbitration. You may opt out of the agreement to arbitrate. If You do so, neither You nor My Crew Kit are able to require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, You must notify My Crew Kit in writing within 30 days of the date that You first became subject to the arbitration provision in these Terms, by sending My Crew Kit a clear statement that You want to opt out of arbitration and include Your name, residence or business address and the email address associated with your account to [email protected].
- No Class Action You may only bring individual claims. Under no circumstances are You allowed to bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class. Class action lawsuits, class-wide arbitrations, private attorney-general actions, and any other proceedings where someone acts in a representative capacity are not allowed. Any combining of individual proceedings must have the consent of all parties.
Notwithstanding any of these Terms, My Crew Kit reserves the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, to terminate Your license to use the Services and to block or prevent Your access to and use of the Services and to refuse the Services to anyone for any reason at any time. In the event of termination of access to the Services for any reason, You have no right to obtain a copy of any data or communications You stored or effected via the Services or any other data.
- Waiver, Severability and Assignment
My Crew Kit's failure to enforce a provision of these Terms is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If any provision of these Terms is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable Term will be substituted reflecting Our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms and any attempt to do so will be void. My Crew Kit may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.
