This Agreement shall be interpreted and enforced in all respects under the laws of the State of Missouri, USA as applicable to contracts to be performed entirely within the State of Missouri, USA. Any litigation arising out of this Agreement will be brought solely and exclusively in the state or federal courts located in Kansas City, Missouri, and the parties agree that jurisdiction and venue properly lie in such courts and waive any claim that a proceeding in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement.
This section applies to any dispute EXCEPT IT DOESN'T INCLUDE A DISPUTE RELATING TO THE ENFORCEMENT OR VALIDITY OF YOUR, Branded Tab’S, OR EITHER OF OUR LICENSORS’ INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS. The terms “complaint” and “dispute” mean any dispute, action, complaint, or other controversy between you and Branded Tab concerning the Services or this Agreement, 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. We hope that any disputes that you have relating to our Site or our Services can be resolved by contacting Branded Tab’s customer service at email@example.com If, however, we are unable to resolve any complaint or dispute informally, any complaint or dispute arising out of, relating to, or in connection with these Terms of Service (or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate) and the Services themselves shall only and exclusively be resolved by submission to mandatory, final and binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association or its successor (“AAA”). If AAA ceases to provide arbitration service, then the term “AAA” shall mean and refer to J.A.M.S. The arbitration shall only be conducted in Kansas City, MO before a single arbitrator, in the English language. The arbitrator shall be a retired judge or justice, or a duly licensed attorney with no less than 15 years of experience in arbitrating commercial disputes involving the retail sale of goods and services. If the parties cannot agree upon an arbitrator within ten days of the filing of the demand for arbitration, the AAA shall select the arbitrator. Either party may commence arbitration by filing a written demand for arbitration with AAA and delivering a copy of such demand to the other party. The arbitration shall be held under the Commercial Arbitration Rules with Expedited Procedures of the AAA then in effect (or the J.A.M.S. Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures in effect at the time the demand for arbitration is filed). Unless both you and we agree in writing otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims or preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator's determination shall be set forth in a brief, written statement reasonably explaining the disposition of the dispute and the amount of any award. The parties shall split the costs of all invoices issued by the AAA to conduct the arbitration but shall otherwise bear their own costs. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, either party may seek injunctive relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent irreparable harm from occurring prior to the selection of the arbitrator. ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THESE TERMS OF SERVICE WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND YOU AGREE NOT TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATE, YOU EXPRESSLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A COURT OR JURY TRIAL AND RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED. ANY PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE OR LITIGATE ANY DISPUTE IN ANY FORUM WILL BE CONDUCTED SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. For any non-frivolous claim that is less than $10,000, we will pay the filing fee for the arbitration; provided, however, that if the arbitrator finds that your claim or relief sought is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose you shall promptly reimburse us all amounts paid by us that are your obligation to pay under the AAA rules. If the arbitrator grants an award in your favor based on the merits of your claim and such award is greater than the value of Branded Tab's last written settlement offer to you before an arbitrator was selected, then Branded Tab will pay you up to twice the amount of the award up to a maximum aggregate amount of $10,000. If we make any amendment to the arbitration provisions, you may reject any such amendment by sending us written notice to the contact address provided below within thirty (30) days after such amendment. By rejecting any such amendment, you agree that you will arbitrate any dispute in accordance with this Agreement. CONTACT
