Agreement to Arbitrate All Claims on Individualized Basis
You and Schellman agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Schellman that relate in any way to your use or access of the Website, the actions of Schellman or its agents, or any products or services sold, offered, or purchased shall be resolved through confidential, final and binding arbitration rather than in court, with the exception of any dispute relating to the enforcement or validity of Schellman’s intellectual property rights. The Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate.
UNLESS YOU AND SCHELLMAN AGREE OTHERWISE, EACH OF YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL PROCEEDING. ALSO, TO THE EXTENT AVAILABLE BY LAW, AND SUBJECT TO THE DAMAGE LIMITATIONS DISCUSSED HEREIN, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF ONLY IN FAVOR, AND FOR THE BENEFIT OF, THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF. If a court decides that any part of this agreement to arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Section shall still apply. Specifically, if a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular claim or a particular request for a remedy (such as a request for public injunctive relief), then that claim or that remedy request (and only that claim or that remedy request) may be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court, subject to your and Schellman’s right to appeal the court’s decision. All other claims shall be arbitrated.
The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (as applicable), as modified by this Section. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA’s website at https://www.adr.org.
The arbitration shall be held in Hillsborough County, Florida, or at another mutually agreed location.
The arbitrator’s award shall be confidential, final and binding, and 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.
