- Waiver and Arbitration
You agree that by accepting the Terms, you and MEDAFFECT are each waiving the right to trial by jury and the ability to participate in a class action. ANY AND ALL DISPUTES MEDAFFECT OR YOU HAS RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE WEBSITE OR YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH MEDAFFECT (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION WITH RESPECT TO DATA, YOUR INTERACTION WITH MEDAFFECT, MEDAFFECT’S ADVERTISEMENTS AND DISCLOSURES, EMAIL AND MOBILE SMS (TEXT) MESSAGES MEDAFFECT SENDS TO YOU, OR THE USE OR DISCLOSURE OF ANY INFORMATION ABOUT YOU), THESE TERMS, AND PRIVACY POLCY (COLLECTIVELY, “CLAIMS”) WILL BE SUBMITTED TO CONFIDENTIAL ARBITRATION IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT THAT YOU HAVE, IN ANY WAY, VIOLATED OR THREATENED TO VIOLATE ANY COMPANY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHT. CLAIMS INCLUDE CLAIMS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING INTENTIONAL TORT), FRAUD, AGENCY, YOUR OR MEDAFFECT’S NEGLIGENCE, STATUTORY OR REGULATORY PROVISIONS, OR ANY OTHER SOURCE OF LAW.
If you intend to seek arbitration you must first send to MEDAFFECT, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to MEDAFFECT must be sent to 538 Azalea Drive Destin, Florida 32541. The Notice shall describe the nature and basis of the claim or disputes and the specific relief sought. If parties are unable to reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, you or MEDAFFECT may commence arbitration. All arbitrations required by these Terms will be conducted under the Commercial Arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator’s award is binding and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration brought under, or with respect to, Claims is to be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to these Terms whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise. Unless MEDAFFECT and you agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative, private attorney general or class proceeding.
For arbitration claims you assert against MEDAFFECT in accordance with this section (but not for any arbitration claim against you) MEDAFFECT will pay all of your administrative, hearing, and arbitrator’s fees and costs for the arbitration (but not the fees, expenses, and costs of your lawyers, experts, or witnesses) in excess of any filing fee you would have been required to pay to file the claim as a lawsuit in a state or federal court (whichever is greater) in the judicial district in which you reside. Unless unlawful, MEDAFFECT will pay its, and you will pay your, lawyers’, experts’, and witness fees, expenses, and costs with respect to all claims. The arbitrator may award money or equitable relief in favor of only the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. Similarly, an arbitration award and any judgment confirming it apply only to that specific case; it cannot be used in any other case except to enforce the award itself. To reduce the time and expense of the arbitration, the arbitrator will not provide a statement of reasons for his or her award unless requested to do so by all parties.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU WILL NOT AGREE TO ACT AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR IN ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, OR PARTICIPATE AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS OF CLAIMANTS IN ANY LAWSUIT AGAINST MEDAFFECT IN ANY COURT, OR IN ARBITRATION, WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIMS. THIS SECTION WILL SURVIVE THE TERMINATION OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND MEDAFFECT, INCLUDING ANY AND ALL DISPUTES MEDAFFECT OR YOU HAS RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE WEBSITE OR YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH MEDAFFECT.
