ARBITRATION

Arbitrable disputes by User are those disputes that are made within the applicable statute of limitations and which arose out of or are related to, in any manner, use of the Site. Arbitrable disputes by US are those claims against a User made within the applicable statute of limitations and which arose out of the Site. Subject to the provisional remedies such as injunctive relief or restraining orders, if any, provided for under applicable law, arbitration shall be the exclusive remedy for resolving any such arbitrable disputes, and the decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on all parties. An action to compel arbitration pursuant to this Arbitration Procedure, or to confirm, vacate or modify an arbitration award, may be brought pursuant to the procedures of the State of California. The rights of the parties under this Arbitration Procedure are the same as those available to them in a court of competent jurisdiction.

Arbitration is initiated by giving written notice of the intention to arbitrate to the other party. The notice must be given within the applicable statute of limitations. A failure to file the notice within the applicable statute of limitations shall constitute a waiver of the dispute in any forum. The notice of intent to arbitrate must contain a description of the dispute, the facts on which it is based, and the remedy/relief sought and hand delivered or sent by registered or certified mail to (name and address). A notice of intent to arbitrate from US shall be sent by registered or certified mail to the User and shall be deemed filed on the date received.

The arbitrator shall be chosen within 30 days of receipt of the written notice of intent to arbitrate, or as soon thereafter as practicable. If the parties are unable to agree on the selection of an arbitrator, either party may petition the court for a list of three retired judges available to arbitrate. The User shall strike one name, then US shall strike one name, and the remaining judge will serve as the arbitrator. To the extent required by applicable law, US shall pay the arbitrator’s fee. Otherwise, US and the User shall split the arbitrator’s fee.
The arbitrator shall have the authority to rule on all motions, whether made prior to or at the hearing, including motions for summary judgment or summary adjudication. The arbitrator shall not have the authority to amend, modify or delete any provision of this Arbitration Procedure or US’ policies, unless violative of applicable law. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award only such remedies as could be awarded by a court under the applicable substantive law, which may include injunctive or other equitable relief. Prior to the hearing, the arbitrator shall encourage the parties to explore mediation.
Arbitration is intended to provide a less time-consuming, less expensive, and less complicated means of settling disputes. Discovery may be initiated by the parties after the selection of the arbitrator, and may be initiated without first obtaining permission from the arbitrator. In the event of a dispute regarding discovery, either party may ask the arbitrator to determine what discovery is appropriate under the circumstances, or adequate for the prosecution or defense of the claims. However, under no circumstances will discovery be permitted that is broader than that which is allowed by the applicable procedural rules of the State of California. The arbitrator may issue subpoenas to compel the testimony of third-party witnesses or the production of documents.

User will be permitted to be represented at the arbitration hearing by an attorney if notice is given to US one month prior.

The arbitrator may order the parties to submit pre- and/or post-hearing briefs. All testimony taken at the hearing before the arbitrator shall be under oath and, unless otherwise agreed to by the parties, the rules of evidence of the state in which the US is located shall apply. A party shall have the right to have a written transcript of the proceedings at that party’s own expense.

The arbitrator shall issue a written decision within 30 days, or as soon thereafter as practicable, of the later of the conclusion of the hearing or, where applicable, the receipt of briefs. This decision, which shall set forth the essential findings and conclusions on which it is based, shall be final and binding on the parties. Therefore, other than a petition to confirm, vacate or modify the decision, neither party may initiate a lawsuit that in any way arises out of or relates to the dispute. The decision of the arbitrator may be entered as a judgment in a court of competent jurisdiction.

In the event that any paragraph, or provision within a paragraph, of this Arbitration Procedure is determined to be illegal or unenforceable, such determination shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining paragraphs, or provisions within a paragraph, all of which shall remain in full force and effect. A court of competent jurisdiction may reform this Arbitration Procedure if necessary to effectuate the intent of the parties to resolve the specified disputes through arbitration.
