17. Governing Law and Arbitration
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. IT CONTAINS PROCEDURES FOR MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER. THESE PROVISIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU AND ONLY APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. THE FOLLOWING PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION MAY NOT APPLY TO RESIDENTS OF QUEBEC.
WHAT IS ARBITRATION: Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court and seeks to resolve disputes more quickly. Instead of a judge or a jury, the case will be decided by a neutral arbitrator who has the power to award the same damages and relief that a court can. If any provision of this Arbitration Agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced.
CONFIDENTIALITY: Except as may be required by law, neither a party nor its representatives may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration hereunder without the prior written consent of all parties.
NO CLASS ACTIONS: To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the parties 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 the parties waive any right to a jury trial.
WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL: THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In the event any litigation should arise between you and us in any court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND COMPANY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH A LAWYER IN DECIDING TO ACCEPT THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
