Dispute Resolution – Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

You agree that: (1) Any claim, dispute, or controversy (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with the Website or the Products, Services and Information provided on the Website will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration conducted pursuant to the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes in conjunction with the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules (if and as applicable depending on the amount in controversy); (2) This arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16; (3) The arbitration will be held at the AAA regional office nearest you; (4) The arbitrator’s decision will be controlled by the terms and conditions of this Agreement; (5) The arbitrator will apply South Carolina law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations and will honor claims of privilege recognized at law; (6) There will be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis; arbitration can decide only your individual claims and the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated; (7) The arbitrator will not have the power to award punitive damages against any party; (8) In the event that the administrative fees and deposits you are required to pay under the AAA rules exceed $125, and you are unable to pay the additional fees and deposits, Element retains the right to forward them to the AAA on your behalf, subject to ultimate allocation by the arbitrator. In addition, if you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Element retains the right to pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive; and (9) If any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, the balance of this arbitration provision will remain in full force and effect and will be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein.

ANY DISPUTE, WHETHER IN ARBITRATION, IN COURT, OR OTHERWISE, WILL BE CONDUCTED SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. ELEMENT AND YOU AGREE THAT NO PARTY WILL HAVE THE RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED AS A CLASS ACTION, A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR IN ANY OTHER PROCEEDING IN WHICH EITHER PARTY ACTS OR PROPOSES TO ACT IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY. NO ARBITRATION OR PROCEEDING WILL BE JOINED, CONSOLIDATED, OR COMBINED WITH ANOTHER ARBITRATION OR PROCEEDING WITHOUT THE PRIOR WRITTEN CONSENT OF ALL PARTIES TO ANY SUCH ARBITRATION OR PROCEEDING.

You understand that, in the absence of this provision, you would have had a right to litigate disputes through a court, including the right to litigate claims on a class-wide or class action basis, and that you have expressly and knowingly waived those rights and agreed to resolve any disputes through binding arbitration in accordance with the provisions of this paragraph. This binding arbitration provision and class action waiver does not apply outside of the United States.

Miscellaneous

You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of this Website or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. If any of these terms will be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that term will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining term. You may have greater rights than those provided in this Agreement, or some provisions may be prohibited, by virtue of state or federal consumer protection laws.
