3) The Company reserves all rights to pursue any legal remedy in order to enforce collections or other claims against the Customer.
C. Notice and Negotiation.
If any dispute between the Parties arises under this Agreement, both parties agree to meet and confer within ten days of written notice by either Party that the dispute exists. The meeting’s purpose will be to negotiate a simple solution instead of going to dispute resolution.
If the dispute is not resolved through negotiation, we both will attempt, within 15 days of failed negotiations, to agree on a neutral mediator whose role will be to facilitate further negotiations. Both parties share the costs of mediation, provided that payment of the costs and any attorneys’ fees may also be mediated.
1) Arbitration. If mediation fails to produce a full settlement of the dispute satisfactory to both Parties, the Parties agree to submit to binding arbitration under the rules of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules. This arbitration must take place within 60 days of the failure of mediation. In no event may a dispute be made after two years from when the aggrieved party knew or should have known of the issue. Costs and attorneys’ fees for arbitration and prior mediation may be awarded to the prevailing party.
2) No Class Actions. Both parties agree that disputes must be in an individual capacity, and not as a class action or class arbitration. No arbitration or other proceeding may be combined with another without prior written consent of all parties affected by the arbitrations or proceedings.
3) Starting the Process. To begin arbitration, a party must:
i. Write a demand for arbitration, including a description of the dispute and the amount of damages sought to be recovered. You can find a copy of a Demand for Arbitration at www.adr.org (“Demand for Arbitration: Consumer Arbitration Rules”).
ii. Send one copy of the Demand for Arbitration to AAA by mail at American Arbitration Association Case Filing Services 1101 Laurel Oak Road, Suite 100 Voorhees, NJ 08043.
iii. Send one copy of the Demand for Arbitration to the other party at the same address as the Dispute Notice, or as otherwise agreed to by the parties.
4) Arbitration Procedures. You can find AAA rules at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. If there is a conflict between the AAA rules and the terms of this Agreement, the rules set forth in this Agreement govern. All disputes will be resolved by a single neutral arbitrator who is bound by these terms. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, has exclusive authority to resolve disputes arising out of the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including claims that any of these terms are voidable.
5) The Arbitrator and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable.
6) Any arbitration must be held in Madison, Wisconsin. Wisconsin law applies. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
