- DISPUTE RESOLUTION
- Arbitration. ANY DISPUTE, CONTROVERSY OR CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR THE BREACH OR TERMINATION HEREOF, OR ANY TRANSACTION UTILIZING OR RELATING TO, OR THE USE OF, OUR WEBSITE, WILL BE SETTLED EXCLUSIVELY BY BINDING ARBITRATION CONDUCTED BY THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION (“AAA”). THE AAA WILL APPLY THE COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION RULES TO THE ARBITRATION OF ANY DISPUTE PURSUANT TO THESE TERMS, UNLESS YOU ARE AN INDIVIDUAL AND USE THE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES FOR PERSONAL OR HOUSEHOLD USE, IN WHICH CASE THE AAA WILL APPLY THE CONSUMER ARBITRATION RULES (EXCLUDING ANY RULES OR PROCEDURES GOVERNING OR PERMITTING CLASS ACTIONS) (COLLECTIVELY, THE “RULES”). THE ARBITRATION WILL BE HEARD BY ONE ARBITRATOR TO BE SELECTED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE RULES IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY, CALIFORNIA. JUDGMENT UPON ANY AWARD RENDERED MAY BE ENTERED IN ANY COURT HAVING JURISDICTION THEREOF. ALL PARTIES WAIVE THE RIGHT, IF ANY, TO OBTAIN ANY AWARD FOR EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OR ANY OTHER AMOUNT FOR THE PURPOSE OR IMPOSING A PENALTY FROM THE OTHER IN ANY ARBITRATION OR JUDICIAL PROCEEDING OR OTHER ADJUDICATION ARISING OUT OF OR WITH RESPECT TO THESE TERMS, OR ANY BREACH HEREOF, INCLUDING ANY CLAIM THAT THESE TERMS, OR ANY PART HEREOF, IS INVALID, ILLEGAL OR OTHERWISE VOIDABLE OR VOID. IN ADDITION TO ALL OTHER RELIEF, THE ARBITRATOR WILL HAVE THE POWER TO AWARD REASONABLE ATTORNEYS’ FEES TO THE PREVAILING PARTY. TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AGREE ANY DISPUTE WILL BE RESOLVED WITHOUT INCLUDING ANY OTHER THIRD PARTIES INCLUDED AS PARTIES TO THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDING, BE IT AS INDIVIDUALS, AS PART OF A COLLECTIVE ACTION, OR AS PART OF A REPRESENTATIVE CLASS, UNLESS BOTH YOU AND RIPNDIP AGREE TO SUCH CONSOLIDATION AFTER A DISPUTE HAS ARISEN. IF ANY PROVISION OF THESE TERMS WILL BE UNLAWFUL, VOID OR FOR ANY REASON UNENFORCEABLE, THEN THAT PROVISION WILL BE DEEMED SEVERABLE FROM THESE TERMS AND WILL NOT AFFECT THE VALIDITY AND ENFORCEABILITY OF ANY REMAINING PROVISIONS. OUR FAILURE TO ENFORCE ANY PROVISION OF THESE TERMS WILL NOT BE DEEMED A WAIVER OF SUCH PROVISION NOR THE RIGHT TO ENFORCE SUCH PROVISION.
- Class Action Waiver. BOTH YOU AND YOUR AFFILIATES, ON ONE HAND, AND RIPNDIP AND ITS AFFILIATES ON THE OTHER HAND, AGREE THAT ANY CLAIMS OR CONTROVERSIES BETWEEN US MUST BE BROUGHT AGAINST EACH OTHER ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS ONLY. THAT MEANS NEITHER YOU AND YOUR AFFILIATES ON ONE HAND NOR RIPNDIP AND ITS AFFILIATES ON THE OTHER HAND CAN BRING A CLAIM AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN A CLASS ACTION, CONSOLIDATED ACTION, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. THE ARBITRATOR CANNOT COMBINE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR ENTITY’S CLAIMS INTO A SINGLE CASE, AND CANNOT PRESIDE OVER ANY CONSOLIDATED, CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING (UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE). AND, THE ARBITRATOR’S DECISION OR AWARD IN ONE PERSON’S OR ENTITY’S CASE CAN ONLY IMPACT THE PERSON OR ENTITY THAT BROUGHT THE CLAIM, NOT OTHER RIPNDIP USERS, CUSTOMERS OR PARTNERS, AND CANNOT BE USED TO DECIDE OTHER DISPUTES WITH OTHER USERS, CUSTOMERS OR PARTNERS. THE ARBITRATOR DOES NOT HAVE THE POWER TO VARY THESE CLASS ACTION WAIVER PROVISIONS. HOWEVER, IF FOR ANY REASON ANY COURT WITH COMPETENT JURISDICTION HOLDS THAT THIS RESTRICTION IS UNCONSCIONABLE OR UNENFORCEABLE, THEN OUR AGREEMENT IN SECTION 24 TO ARBITRATE WILL NOT APPLY AND THE DISPUTE MUST BE BROUGHT EXCLUSIVELY IN COURT IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, AND ALL PARTIES CONSENT TO PERSONAL JURISDICTION OF SUCH COURTS FOR SUCH PURPOSE.
- Injunctive Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Section 24 will not apply to any legal action taken by us to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with any loss, cost or damage (or potential loss, cost or damage) related to these Terms, including the website, our operations and our products and the Service.
