Any disputes with the Company, including attempts to seek relief or damages (herein referred to as Disputes) are to be resolved in accordance with the Arbitration Agreement below.

This section on Arbitration specifies, and limits, the manner in which you may seek relief or damages from the Company.
You agree to waive the right to participate in class action lawsuits and class-wide arbitration. If any claim is determined by matter of law not to be under purview of resolution by arbitration, then only that claim can be taken to court.
Any dispute between you and the Company relating to the Product and its Terms of Service, regardless of the nature and basis of the dispute, must be determined via mandatory binding individual arbitration. You agree that the arbitrator shall have exclusive power in their jurisdiction. The arbitrator has the exclusive power to determine the scope, validity, and arbitrability of any claim. The arbitrator is required to follow this agreement, and this arbitration provision will survive termination of the Terms of Service.
Arbitration may be waived if both you and the Company mutually agree to waive arbitration to either (1) resolve the claim by direct agreement of the parties, or (2) resolve the claim through individual action in a U.S. small claims court.
Arbitration will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) as applicable and as modified by these Terms of Service. The Federal Arbitration Act determines the interpretation and enforcement of the arbitration clause in these Terms. If the Arbitration Clause is not enforceable in whole or in part, and the parties do not mutually agree to settle or use arbitration, then the jurisdiction for any proceedings against the Company will default to New York.
If you intend to seek arbitration, you are first required to send written notice (the “Notice”) to our Physical Address. To ensure that the Physical Address you use is valid, please email the Company at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the most recent Physical Address. When sending the written notice, you must require a delivery signature by us.
A notice must include (1) the basis of your claim or dispute and (2) a description of the relief sought by you (the “Demand”). We may contact you directly to resolve the claim or dispute. After 30 days, if no agreement is reached, either party may commence arbitration proceedings. If arbitration is decided in your favor, then the Company will pay you the maximum damages set out above in this contract ($50).
Once Notice has been received by the Company, you may file paperwork for arbitration proceedings. Details on the arbitration rules and the procedure for filing can be found at www.adr.org/rules or you can contact the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
Unless the arbitrator determines that in-person physical appearance is required, the arbitrator shall conduct hearings via video-conference (or tele- conference if video is not possible). The venue for in-person hearings shall be determined based upon the reasonable convenience of both parties.
In sending Notice to the Company, you agree to keep confidential all documents and matters related to your claim. This includes the Notice, all communications with the Company concerning the Notice, all arbitration proceedings, and the outcomes of the arbitration proceedings.
