Arbitration

Read this section carefully. It requires you to waive your right to a jury trial and arbitrate certain disputes and claims and prohibits class or representative actions or arbitrations.

Except for an individual action in small claims court, or disputes regarding intellectual property, the parties agree to waive any rights to a jury trial and to resolve any disputes by confidential binding arbitration held in San Francisco, California in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“Rules“) of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS“), which are available on the JAMS website and hereby incorporated by reference. The Parties will maintain the confidentiality of any proceedings, including all information gathered, prepared, and presented for purposes of the arbitration or related to the dispute(s) therein.

NO CLASS ACTIONS. Any dispute related to these Terms or our Services will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.

The parties agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this section will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.

For any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and Voteplus10.org will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Voteplus10.org, Voteplus10.org will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and Voteplus10.org agree that the courts of the District of Columbia and the United States sitting in the District of Columbia have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.

You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted these Terms by emailing us at info@Voteplus10.org.us. To be effective, the opt out notice must include your full name, address and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration.

If any portion of this arbitration section is found to be unenforceable for any reason, the unenforceable provision shall be severed from these Terms, and such severance shall have no impact on the remainder of the arbitration section or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of claims on an individual basis pursuant to this section.

Controlling Law

These Terms will be governed by the law of the State of California except for its conflicts of laws principles.

Entire Agreement

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Voteplus10.org with respect to the subject matter of these Terms, and supersede and replace any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of these Terms. These Terms create no third party beneficiary rights.

Waiver, Severability & Assignment

Voteplus10.org’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be void. Voteplus10.org may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.

Modifications

We may revise these Terms from time to time at any time in our sole discretion, including to better reflect:

  1. changes to the law,
  2. new regulatory requirements, or
  3. improvements or enhancements made to our Services.

If you don’t agree to the updates we make, please stop using the Services. By continuing to use or access the Services after the updates come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.
