Informal Resolution. To facilitate the resolution of any controversy related to this Agreement (“Dispute”), You and Animal Repair Shop agree to first attempt to resolve any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) informally for at least 30 days before initiating any arbitration or court proceeding. Informal resolution may be completed through a customer service mechanism. If this fails, additional informal discussions begin upon written notice from you or Animal Repair Shop. If you and Animal Repair Shop are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal discussions, either You or Animal Repair Shop agree to have the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) finally and exclusively resolved by final binding arbitration. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration shall be performed under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by these AAA rules. If such costs are determined by the arbitrator to be excessive, Animal Repair Shop will pay all arbitration fees and expenses (but not your attorneys’ fees). The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online if your physical attendance is an undue burden as determined by the arbitrator. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, you and Animal Repair Shop may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
No Class Action. You and Animal Repair Shop agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between Animal Repair Shop and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law no arbitration or other dispute resolution proceeding shall be joined with any other or decided on a class-action basis.
Exceptions to Informal Discussions and Arbitration. You and Animal Repair Shop agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal discussions and binding arbitration: (1) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of piracy, or criminal activity; and (2) any claim by Animal Repair Shop for injunctive relief.
Venue. Any arbitration will take place in New York, United States of America. Any Dispute not subject to arbitration (other than claims proceeding in any small claims court), shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the State of New York, United States of America, and you and Animal Repair Shop agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court. Construction and performance of this Agreement and the legal relations between the parties hereto shall be under the law of the State of New York without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. Each party hereby waives any claim that such venue is improper or inconvenient.
If you violate these Terms and Conditions or if You engage in any conduct that we, in our sole discretion, believe is in violation of any applicable law or is otherwise harmful to the interests of Animal Repair Shop or any third party, We may issue you a warning about the violation, or We may choose to immediately terminate or suspend any and all accounts that You have established. You acknowledge that Animal Repair Shop is not required to provide You notice before terminating or suspending Your access to Service(s), but it may choose to do so.
If Your account is terminated, We may, but are not required to, remove some or all of Your content from our servers. Further, You understand that You shall not be entitled to any refund of fees for such termination of your Animal Repair Shop account or suspension of Your access to all or part of the Services.
If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is held to be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. These Terms and Conditions constitute Your entire agreement with Animal Repair Shop with respect to their subject matter, and supersede any other previous written terms and any oral or promotional statements regarding such subject matter. Any waiver of enforcement of any Terms and Condition of this Agreement or any breach thereof, in any one instance, shall not constitute a waiver of such term or condition or any subsequent breach thereof. If any dispute arises under these Terms and Conditions, the prevailing party shall be reimbursed by the other party for any and all legal fees and costs associated therewith.
