11. ENTIRE AGREEMENT
This Agreement, including the Waiver, Hold SpringSpot Harmless, and Release Of Liability, constitutes the entire agreement between you and SpringSpot. You acknowledge that there are no collateral agreements, promises, representations, or guarantees, oral or otherwise, not stated in this Agreement. This Agreement replaces any prior agreements, promises, or representations between you SpringSpot, whether written or oral, that deal with the subject matter of this Agreement. The failure of SpringSpot to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement does not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Except for Section 12. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER, as stated in that section, if any part of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
12. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
Please read this Arbitration Agreement carefully.
(a) Purpose. This Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver (“Arbitration Agreement”) facilitates the prompt and efficient resolution of any disputes that may arise between you and SpringSpot. Arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution in which parties to a contract agree to submit their disputes and potential disputes to a neutral third person (called an arbitrator) for a binding decision, instead of having such dispute(s) decided in a lawsuit, in court, by a judge or jury trial. This Arbitration Agreement provides that all disputes between you and SpringSpot shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court. In the absence of this Arbitration Agreement, you might otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring claims in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate in or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including, but not limited to, class actions). Entering into this Arbitration Agreement constitutes a waiver of your right to litigate claims in court and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow this Arbitration Agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorneys’ fees, if otherwise authorized by applicable law).
For the purpose of this Arbitration Agreement, “SpringSpot” means SpringSpot Inc. and its parent organizations, subsidiaries and affiliated companies, and each of their respective managers, owners, officers, directors, employees and agents. The term “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and SpringSpot regarding any aspect of your relationship with SpringSpot, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, negligence, gross negligence or reckless behavior), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). “Dispute” is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced.
WE EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN IN COURT, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
(b) Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution. For all Disputes, you must first give SpringSpot an opportunity to resolve the Dispute. You must commence this process by mailing written notification to SpringSpot at 55 E. 3rd Ave, San Mateo, CA 94401 USA. That written notification must include: (1) your name; (2) your address; (3) a written description of the Dispute; and (4) a description of the specific relief you seek. If SpringSpot does not resolve the Dispute to your satisfaction within forty-five (45) days after it receives your written notification, you may pursue your Dispute in arbitration.
(c) Arbitration Procedures. If this Arbitration Agreement applies and the Dispute is not resolved as provided above (“Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution”) either you or SpringSpot may initiate arbitration proceedings. The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), www.adr.org, or JAMS, www.jamsadr.com, will arbitrate all Disputes, and the arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator. The arbitration shall be commenced as an individual arbitration, and shall in no event be commenced as a representative or class arbitration. All issues shall be for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this Arbitration Agreement.
For arbitration before the AAA, for Disputes of less than $75,000, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes; for Disputes involving $75,000 or more, the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. In either instance, the AAA’s Optional Rules for Emergency Measures of Protection Shall apply. The AAA rules are available at or by calling 1 (800) 778-7879. For arbitration before JAMS, the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and the JAMS Recommended Arbitration Discovery Protocols for Domestic, Commercial Cases will apply. The JAMS rules are available at or by calling 1 (800) 352-5267. This Arbitration Agreement governs in the event it conflicts with the applicable arbitration rules. Under no circumstances will class action procedures or rules apply to the arbitration.
Because your contract with SpringSpot, the Terms and Conditions, and this Arbitration Agreement concern interstate commerce, the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the arbitrability of all Disputes. However, the arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and the applicable statute of limitations or condition precedent to your Dispute.
(d) Exclusions from Arbitration/Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, which means you would retain your right to litigate your disputes in a court, either before a judge or jury. You or SpringSpot may choose to pursue a Dispute in court, and not by arbitration, if: (1) the Dispute qualifies, it may be initiated in small claims court; or (2) YOU OPT-OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT YOU FIRST CONSENT TO THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT (the “opt-out deadline”). You may opt out of this provision by mailing written notification to SpringSpot at 55 E. 3rd Ave, San Mateo, CA 94401 USA. Your written notification must include: (1) your name; (2) your address; and (3) a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with SpringSpot through arbitration. Your decision to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement will have no adverse effect on your relationship with SpringSpot. Any opt-out request received after the opt-out deadline will not be valid and you must pursue your Dispute in arbitration or small claims court.
(e) Arbitration Award: The arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available pursuant to applicable law, and will not have the power to award relief to, against, or for the benefit of any person who is not a party to the proceeding. The arbitrator shall make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. Such award by the arbitrator will be final and binding on the parties, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA or applicable state law, and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement.
(f) Location of Arbitration: You may initiate arbitration in either San Mateo, CA or in the federal judicial district that includes your address that you provide in your written notification of Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution. In the event that SpringSpot initiates an arbitration, it may only do so in the federal judicial district that includes your address that you provide in your written notification of Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution.
(g) Payment of Arbitration Fees and Costs: SpringSpot will pay all arbitration filing fees and arbitrator’s costs and expenses upon your written request given prior to the commencement of the arbitration. You are responsible for all additional fees and costs that you incur in the arbitration, including, but not limited to, attorneys’ fees or expert witness fees. Fees and costs may be awarded by the arbitrator as provided according to applicable law. In addition to any rights to recover fees and costs under applicable law, if you provide notice and negotiate in good faith with SpringSpot as provided in the section above titled “Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution” and the arbitrator concludes that you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to recover from SpringSpot your actual and reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs as determined by the arbitrator.
(h) Class Action Waiver: The parties agree that the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, representative action, consolidated action, or private attorney general action) unless both you and SpringSpot specifically agree in writing to do so following initiation of the arbitration. Neither you, nor any other SpringSpot members and/or user of SpringSpot’s facilities or services, can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, representative, consolidated, or private attorney general proceeding without having complied with the opt-out requirements above.
(i) Limitation of Procedural Rights: You understand and agree that, by entering into this Arbitration Agreement, you and SpringSpot are each agreeing to arbitration instead of the right to a trial before a judge or jury in a public court. In the absence of this Arbitration Agreement, you and SpringSpot might otherwise have had a right or opportunity to bring Disputes in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including class actions). You give up those rights. Other rights that you would have if you went to court, such as the right to appeal and to certain types of discovery, may be more limited in arbitration. The right to appellate review of an arbitrator’s decision is much more limited than in court, and in general an arbitrator’s decision may not be appealed for errors of fact or law.
(j) Severability: If any clause within this Arbitration Agreement (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Arbitration Agreement, and the remainder of this Arbitration Agreement will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then this entire Arbitration Agreement will be unenforceable, and the Dispute will be decided by a court.
(k) Continuation: This Arbitration Agreement shall survive the termination of your contract with SpringSpot and your use of SpringSpot’s facilities and services.
13. WAIVER, HOLD SPRINGSPOT HARMLESS, AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY
