14. APPLICABLE LAW
15. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
A. Arbitration Agreement
Any dispute, controversy, or claim (collectively, “Claim”) relating in any way to your use of Acurian’s Services, Sites, or Resources, or relating in any way to Acurian’s communications with you, shall be finally resolved by binding arbitration.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. There is no judge or jury in arbitration. Instead, the dispute is resolved by a neutral arbitrator. Court review of an arbitration award is limited. Except to the extent the parties agree otherwise, arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You agree that the U.S. Federal
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to Acurian, Inc., 929 N Front St, Wilmington, NC 28401. If you are an individual, the arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. If you are not an individual or have used the Services on behalf of an entity, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will not be used. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879.
The number of arbitrators shall be one. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language in the city of Wilmington, North Carolina. North Carolina law shall apply. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, video or based on written submissions.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, unconscionability, arbitrability, enforceability, or formation of this Arbitration Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. However, the preceding sentence shall not apply to the clause below entitled “Class Action Waiver.”
B. Class Action Waiver
Any Claim must be brought in the respective party’s individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, collective, representative, multiple plaintiff, or similar proceeding (“Class Action”). The parties expressly waive any ability to maintain any Class Action in any forum. The parties understand that any right to litigate in court, to have a judge or jury decide their case, or to be a party to a class or representative action, is waived, and that any claims must be decided individually, through arbitration.
Any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. If this Class Action Waiver is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of the Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial.
