6. Arbitration Agreement


6.1. If you are a Tremonster member in the United States (including its possessions and territories), you and Tremonster agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to the Tremonster service, these Terms of Use and this Arbitration Agreement, shall be determined by binding arbitration or in small claims court. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award and nothing in this Arbitration Agreement shall be interpreted as limiting any non-waivable statutory rights. You agree that, by agreeing to these Terms of Use, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and Tremonster are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement and the termination of your Tremonster membership.


6.2. If you elect to seek arbitration or file a small claim court action, you must first email Tremonster, a written Notice of your claim (“Notice”). The Notice to Tremonster must be addressed to: [email protected] (“Notice Address”). If Tremonster initiates arbitration, it will send a written Notice to the email address used for your membership account. A Notice, whether sent by you or by Tremonster, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If Tremonster and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Tremonster may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court.

 

6.3. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement. Unless Tremonster and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in Cuyahoga County, Ohio The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding on all parties, except (1) for judicial review expressly permitted by law or (2) if the arbitrator’s award includes an award of injunctive relief against a party, in which case that party shall have the right to seek judicial review of the injunctive relief in a court of competent jurisdiction that shall not be bound by the arbitrator’s application or conclusions of law.  Any small claims actions or judicial review of claims of US$10,000 or less shall be commenced in the Cleveland Municipal Court Cuyahoga County, Ohio.  Any judicial review of any claims in excess of US$10,00, shall be commenced in the Cuyahoga County, Ohio Court of Common Pleas 

6.4. YOU AND TREMONSTER AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Tremonster agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.

7. Miscellaneous
