Effective: SEPTEMBER 7, 2017
Binding Arbitration of All Disputes; No Class Relief
This "Binding Arbitration of All Disputes; No Class Relief" Section (the "Arbitration Section"), is deemed to be a "written agreement to arbitrate" pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and Universal Kids agree that we intend that this Arbitration Section satisfies the "writing" requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. If binding arbitration is adjudged by a tribunal to be unenforceable, the provisions of the Disputes Section (below) shall apply to all relevant disputes between you and Universal Kids.
If you have any dispute or disagreement with Universal Kids regarding (i) your use of or interaction with the Online Services, (ii) any purchases or other transactions or relationships related to your use of the Online Services, or (iii) any data or information you may provide to us or that Universal Kids may gather in connection with such use, interaction or transaction (collectively, “NBCUniversal Transactions or Relationships”), you will not have the right to pursue a claim in court, or have a jury decide the claim and you will not have the right to bring or participate in any class action or similar proceeding in court or in arbitration. By using or interacting with the Online Services, or engaging in any other NBCUniversal Transactions or Relationships with us, you agree to binding arbitration as provided below.
Universal Kids will make every reasonable effort to informally resolve any complaints, disputes, or disagreements that you may have with us. If those efforts fail, by using the Online Services, you agree that any complaint, dispute, or disagreement you may have against us, and any claim that Universal Kids may have against you, arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with this Agreement or any NBCUniversal Transactions or Relationships shall be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration (“Arbitration”) administered by JAMS or its successor ("JAMS") and conducted in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules And Procedures in effect at the time the Arbitration is initiated or, if the amount in controversy exceeds $100,000, in accordance with the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules And Procedures then in effect (respectively, the "Applicable Rules"). The Applicable Rules can be found at www.jamsadr.com. If JAMS is no longer in existence, the Arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association or its successor (the "AAA") instead, and conducted in accordance with the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules in effect at that time (which shall be the "Applicable Rules" in such circumstances). If JAMS (or, if applicable, AAA) at the time the arbitration is filed has Minimum Standards of Procedural Fairness for Consumer Arbitrations in effect which would be applicable to the matter in dispute, Universal Kids agrees to provide the benefit of such Minimum Standards to you to the extent they are more favorable than the comparable arbitration provisions set forth in this Arbitration Section, provided, however, that in no event may such Minimum Standards contravene or restrict the application of subpart (e) or (i) below. Furthermore, this Arbitration Section shall not prevent any party from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. You further agree that:
- Single Arbitrator. The Arbitration shall be conducted before a single arbitrator selected in accordance with the Applicable Rules or by mutual agreement between you and Universal Kids (the "Arbitrator");
- Arbitrator Will Interpret This Agreement. The Arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising under or relating to the validity, interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement and/or these arbitration provisions in this Arbitration Section, including but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable;
- Location of Arbitration. The Arbitration shall be held either: (i) at a location determined pursuant to the Applicable Rules (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for you and does not require travel in excess of 100 miles from your home or place of business); or (ii) at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and Universal Kids; or (iii) at your election, if the only claims in the arbitration are asserted by you and are for less than
- Governing Law. The Arbitrator (i) shall apply internal laws of the State of New York consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, or, to the extent (if any) that federal law prevails, shall apply the law of the U.S., irrespective of any conflict of law principles; (ii) shall entertain any motion to dismiss, motion to strike, motion for judgment on the pleadings, motion for complete or partial summary judgment, motion for summary adjudication, or any other dispositive motion consistent with New York or federal rules of procedure, as applicable; (iii) shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; and (iv) shall have authority to award any form of legal or equitable relief;
- No Class Relief. The Arbitration can resolve only your and/or Universal Kids individual claims, and the Arbitrator shall have no authority to entertain or arbitrate any claims on a class or representative basis, or to consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated;
- Written Award. The Arbitrator shall issue a written award supported by a statement of decision setting forth the Arbitrator’s complete determination of the dispute and the factual findings and legal conclusions relevant to it (an "Award"). Judgment upon the Award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof
- Arbitration Costs. In the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of Arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Universal Kids will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the Arbitration as the Arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive, regardless of the outcome of the Arbitration, unless the Arbitrator determines that
- Reasonable Attorney’s Fees. In the event you recover an Award greater than the last written settlement offer by Universal Kids, the Arbitrator shall also have the right to include in the Award our reimbursement of your reasonable and actual out-of-pocket attorneys’ fees associated with the Arbitration, but Universal Kids shall in all events bear its own attorneys’ fees; and
- Interpretation and Enforcement of Arbitration Clause. With the exception of subpart (e) above, if any part of this Arbitration Section is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Applicable Rules, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (e) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor Universal Kids shall be entitled to arbitrate any dispute between us and you, and must instead bring any claims subject to subsection (k) below and the Disputes Section (below).
- Modification of Arbitration Clause With Notice. Universal Kids may modify these arbitration provisions, but such modifications shall only become effective thirty (30) days after Universal Kids has given notice of such modifications and only on a prospective basis for claims arising from NBCUniversal Transactions and Relationships occurring after the effective date of such notification. If any modification pursuant to this subpart (j) is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, then the arbitration provisions effective at the time of your agreement to this Agreement shall govern any dispute or disagreement between you and Universal Kids regarding NBCUniversal Transactions or Relationships.
- Small Claims Matters are Excluded. No Class Relief or Joinder of Claims. Notwithstanding the foregoing arbitration provisions, at your option, you may bring any claim for damages you have against us in your local small claims court within the U.S., if your claim is within such court’s jurisdictional limit; provided that such court does not have the authority to entertain any claims on a class or representative basis, or to consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated in such proceeding.
- Confidentiality of Arbitration. You and Universal Kids agree to maintain the confidential nature of the Arbitration and shall not disclose the fact of the Arbitration, any documents exchanged as part of any mediation, proceedings of the Arbitration, the Arbitrator’s decision and the existence or amount of any Award, except as may be necessary to prepare for or conduct the Arbitration (in which case anyone becoming privy to such confidential information must undertake to preserve its confidentiality), or except as may be necessary in connection with a court application for a provisional remedy, a judicial challenge to an Award or its enforcement, or unless otherwise required by law or court order.
Dispute Resolution Only if a Tribunal has Ruled that Arbitration is Prohibited by Law
This Dispute Resolution only if a Tribunal has Ruled that Abitration is Prohibited by Law Section (the "Disputes Section") applies only where applicable law, as determined by a court with appropriate jurisdiction, prohibits arbitration of disputes in accordance with the Arbitration Section.
- Applicable disputes. If any controversy, allegation, or claim (including any non-contractual claim) arises out of or relates to the Online Services, any content therein, this Agreement or to any Universal Kids actual or alleged intellectual property rights (collectively, an "Applicable Dispute"), then you and Universal Kids agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Applicable Dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. Universal Kids notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provide Universal Kids. But if no such information exists or if such information is not current, then Universal Kids has no obligation under this Disputes Section. Your notice to us must be sent to:
NBCUniversal Media, LLC
NBC Universal Law Department30 Rockefeller Plaza, Rm. 1087E
New York, New York 10112
By e-mail: email@example.comFor a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, Universal Kids and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Applicable Dispute, though nothing will require either you or Universal Kids to resolve the Applicable Dispute on terms with respect to which you and Universal Kids, in each party’s sole discretion, are not comfortable.
- Jurisdiction. The parties agree that the state or federal courts in New York shall have non-exclusive jurisdiction of any Applicable Dispute.
- Governing Law. To the maximum extent permitted by the mandatory laws in your country of residence, this Agreement and any Applicable Dispute arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes), will be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the U.S. and the State
- Injunctive Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Disputes Section will not apply to any legal action taken by Universal Kids to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with, any loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the Online Services, any content therein, and/or Universal Kids intellectual property rights (including such as Universal Kids may claim may be in dispute), Universal Kids operations, and/or Universal Kids products or services.
