Governing Law and Arbitration
Vuports and you (such references include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, predecessors in interest, successors and assigns) agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement between Vuports and you.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send written notice to Vuports of its intent to arbitrate (“Notice”). The Notice to Vuports should be sent by any of the following means: (A) electronic message by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or (B) sending the Notice by U.S. Postal Service certified mail to Vuports LLC at 451 Hayes St., San Francisco, CA 94102. The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought. If we do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Vuports may commence an arbitration proceeding.
The arbitration shall be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this Agreement, and shall be administered by the AAA. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this arbitration clause, but the arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement.
You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and Vuports are waiving the right to a trial by jury.
The arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. You and Vuports agree that YOU AND VUPORTS MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. Further, you agree that the arbitrator may not consolidate proceedings or more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding, and that if this specific proviso is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration clause shall be null and void.
