21. BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER FOR UNITED STATES ACCOUNTS
If you are located in the United States, you agree to resolve disputes only on an individual basis, through arbitration pursuant to the following provisions. The parties expressly waive any right to bring any action, lawsuit, or proceeding as a class or collective action, private attorney general action, or any other processing in which any party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity.
A. A dispute is any controversy between you and BrightDoor concerning the HomeRover Software, the price of the services, your account, your purchase transaction or billing, any term of this License, or BrightDoor’s advertising, marketing, or communications, under any legal theory including contract, warranty, tort, statute, or regulation, except disputes relating to the enforcement or validity of Your or BrightDoor’s intellectual property rights. As part of the best efforts process to resolve disputes, and prior to initiating arbitration proceedings, each party agrees to provide notice of the dispute to the other party, including a description of the dispute, what efforts have been made to resolve it, and what the disputing party is requesting as resolution. With respect to notices to BrightDoor, such notice shall be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
B. You may initiate an action in a small claims court in your county of residence, if the dispute meets the court’s requirements. However, if such a claim is transferred, removed or appealed to a different court, BrightDoor reserves the right to require arbitration.
C. Disputes not resolved pursuant to Section A or B shall be resolved through arbitration. The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) will conduct any arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules. For more information, see www.adr.org. Arbitration hearings will take place in the federal judicial district of your county of residence. A single arbitrator will be appointed. The arbitrator must: (a) follow all applicable substantive Law; (b) follow applicable statutes of limitations; (c) honor valid claims of privilege; (d) issue a written decision including the reasons for the award. The arbitrator may award damages, declaratory or injunctive relief, and costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees). Any arbitration award may be enforced (such as through a judgment) in any court with jurisdiction.
D. If you are unable to afford the arbitration costs, BrightDoor will advance those costs to you, subject to the arbitrator’s determination if costs should be reimbursed to BrightDoor if BrightDoor prevails. For disputes involving more than $75,000, the AAA rules will govern payment of filing fees and the AAA’s and arbitrator’s fees and expenses.
E. This License governs if there is a conflict with the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules.
F. Notwithstanding any other statute of limitations, a claim or dispute under this Agreement must be filed in small claims court or noticed for arbitration within one year of when it could first be filed, or such claim will be permanently barred.
G. If the class action waiver is found to be illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a dispute, then those parts will not be arbitrated but will be resolved in court, with the balance resolved through arbitration. If any provision of this Section 21 is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then that provision will be severed; however, the remaining provisions shall still apply and shall be interpreted to as nearly as possible achieve the original intent of this Section 21, inclusive of the severed provision.
