Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration

Instead Of Suing In Court, We Each Agree To Arbitrate Disputes
Any award in an arbitration initiated under this clause shall be limited to monetary damages and shall include no injunction or direction to any party other than the direction to pay a monetary amount. Further, the arbitrator shall have no authority to award punitive, consequential or other damages not measured by the prevailing party’s actual damages in any arbitration initiated under this section, except as may be required by statute.
The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with some exceptions under the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. We also each agree as follows:
If either Taste of Earth or you want to arbitrate a dispute, we each agree to send written notice to the other providing a description of the dispute, previous efforts to resolve the dispute, all supporting documents/information, and the proposed resolution. Notice to You will be sent to your billing address that you provided us and notice to us will be sent electronically to: email@example.com
- We each agree to make attempts to resolve this dispute within forty-five (45) days of receipt of the notice to arbitrate, and then we may submit the dispute to formal arbitration.
- The FAA applies to this Agreement and arbitration provision. We each agree that the FAA’s provisions, not state law, govern all questions of whether a dispute is subject to arbitration.
- The arbitration will be administered by the National Arbitration Forum (“NAF”) under its arbitration rules. If any NAF rule conflicts with the terms of this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement apply. You can obtain procedures, rules, and fee information from the NAF at 1-800-474-2371 or www.adrforum.com.
- Unless we each agree otherwise, the Arbitration will be conducted by a single neutral arbitrator and will take place in the state of your last billing address. The federal or state law that applies to the Agreement will also apply during the Arbitration.
- We each agree not to pursue arbitration on a consolidated or class wide basis. We each agree that any arbitration will be solely between you and Taste of Earth (not brought on behalf of or together with another individual’s claim). If for any reason any court or arbitrator hold that this restriction in unconscionable or unenforceable, then this Agreement to arbitrate does not apply and the dispute must be brought in court.
- We each are responsible for our own costs relating to counsel, experts, and witnesses, as well as any other costs relating to the arbitration.
No Class Actions
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE DISPUTES ON A CONSOLIDATED OR CLASSWIDE BASIS; THAT IS, TO EITHER JOIN A CLAIM WITH THE CLAIM OF ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY, OR ASSERT A CLAIM IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF ANYONE ELSE IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION, OR OTHER PROCEEDING.
