8. BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
The Falcon consumer service department is available to address any concerns you may have regarding the Services. You may contact them as follows:
Email: [email protected]
Address: 6996 Piazza Grande Avenue, Suite 301, Orlando, Florida 32835 USA
We endeavor to resolve matters to our customers’ satisfaction.
However, if we cannot informally resolve a problem, the following procedure must be followed by you and Falcon:
PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE OR LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN ANY FORUM WILL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. Neither you nor Falcon will seek to have a dispute heard as a class action or private attorney general action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to the arbitrations or proceedings.
You and Falcon agree to arbitrate, as provided below, any and all disputes of any nature whatsoever between you, except only: (a) if resolved informally, (b) disputes relating to the ownership or enforcement of intellectual property rights (but not including privacy or publicity rights); and (c) claims brought in small claims court (“Excepted Claims”).
A. In the event of a dispute, you or Falcon must send to the other party a notice of dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving the notice, the facts giving rise to the dispute, and the relief requested. You must send any notice of dispute to Falcon, 6996 Piazza Grande Ave # 301, Orlando, FL 32835, USA, Attention: General Counsel.
B. The dispute shall be resolved by binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act. YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY. Arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with the provisions of its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the supplementary procedures for consumer related disputes of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”), excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they may have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court. ANY SUCH ARBITRATION SHALL BE CONDUCTED BY THE PARTIES IN THEIR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES ONLY AND NOT AS A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, AND THE PARTIES WAIVE THEIR RIGHT TO FILE A CLASS ACTION OR SEEK RELIEF ON A CLASS BASIS. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in the preceding sentence is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth in this Section 8 shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate Claims.
The rules governing the arbitration may be accessed at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at +1.800.778.7879. To the extent the initial filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the initial filing fee for a lawsuit, we will pay the difference in fees. If the arbitrator finds the arbitration to be non-frivolous, we will pay all of the actual filing and arbitrator fees for the arbitration, provided your claim is less than $75,000. The arbitration rules also permit you to recover attorney’s fees in certain cases.
9. Additional Provisions
A. Choice of Forum. You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to this Agreement that is not subject to arbitration shall be filed, and that venue properly lies, only in the state or federal courts located in Orlando, Florida, USA, and you consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating such action.
B. Choice of Law. This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida and the laws of the United States, without giving effect to any conflict of law principles.
C. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this Agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
D. Survival. The provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive the termination of this Agreement shall survive such termination.
E. Waiver. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement by us shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such provision or any other provision, and our failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
