BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
This Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver (this "Waiver") applies to any dispute arising between you and Slimware regarding these terms. Dispute, for purposes of this Waiver, means any dispute, action, or other controversy whether in contract, warranty, tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, or any other legal or equitable basis. Dispute will be given the broadest possible meaning allowable under law.
In the event of a Dispute, you must provide Slimware with a Notice of Dispute, which is a written statement of the name, address and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the Dispute, and the relief requested. You must send any Notice of Dispute to Slimware at 555 West 18th Street, New York, NY 10011, Attention: Legal.
If you or Slimware do not resolve any Dispute by informal negotiation, any other effort to resolve the Dispute will be conducted exclusively by binding arbitration governed by the United States Federal Arbitration Act ("FAA"). You are giving up the right to litigate (or participate in as a party or class member) all Disputes in court before a judge or jury. Instead, all Disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the FAA. Any court with jurisdiction over the parties may enforce the arbitrator's award.
Any proceedings to resolve or litigate any Dispute in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis. You will not seek to have any Dispute heard as a class action, private attorney general action, or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings. Any arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA") under its Commercial Arbitration Rules. You agree to commence arbitration only in New York, NY.
To the extent permitted by law, any Dispute must be filed within one year. The one-year period begins when the Dispute first could be filed. If such a Dispute is not filed within one year, it is permanently barred.
If this Waiver is found to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a Dispute, then this Waiver will not apply to those parts. Instead, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in arbitration. If any other provision of this Waiver is found to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be severed with the remainder of this Waiver remaining in full force and effect.
