7. ARBITRATION AND DISPUTE TERMS

 

If a dispute arises between you and SecondLifeMac, you and SecondLifeMac agree, as permitted by applicable law, to resolve any claim or controversy at law or equity arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with the Sites through binding arbitration or as we and you otherwise agree in writing. Before resorting to these alternatives, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly at support@secondlifemac.com to seek a resolution. We will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation or arbitration, as alternatives to litigation.

If we cannot resolve a dispute within sixty (60) days of receipt of the notice then, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, disputes shall be resolved solely by binding arbitration in accordance with the then-current Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), in the Illinois, conducted before a single arbitrator pursuant to its rules (including, but not limited to the AAA’s Consumer-Arbitration Rules, available at the ADR Consumer site), except that we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court. 

Certain portions of this Section are deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and SecondLifeMac agree that we intend that this Section satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. This Section can only be amended by mutual agreement.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must submit the dispute by utilizing the forms available at ADR Consumer site, and simultaneously sending a copy of the completed form to the following address: 

7603 New Gross Point Rd. , Skokie, IL 60077

WITH ARBITRATION (A) THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY, (B) THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS AND ARBITRATION OUTCOME ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN CONFIDENTIALITY RULES, AND (C) JUDICIAL REVIEW OF THE ARBITRATION OUTCOME IS LIMITED. You hereby consent to, and waive, all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in the state and federal courts of Cook County in the Illinois. Any dispute shall otherwise be governed by the internal laws of in the Illinois without regard to the Illinois’s choice of law principles, except that the provisions of this agreement concerning arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. The arbitrability of disputes shall be determined by the arbitrator. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.

You and SecondLifeMac also agree that disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be joined or consolidated with any other arbitrations or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party. The arbitrator may award relief (including injunctive relief) only on an individual basis. 

In the event the AAA is unavailable or unwilling to hear the dispute, you and SecondLifeMac shall agree to, or a court shall select, another arbitration provider.

But if, for any reason, any court with competent jurisdiction or an arbitrator holds that this Section is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement to arbitrate will not apply and the dispute must be brought exclusively in court as follows.

YOU AND SECONDLIFEMAC 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. YOU AND SECONDLIFEMAC AGREE TO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU OR WE WANT TO ASSERT A DISPUTE AGAINST THE OTHER, THEN YOU OR WE MUST COMMENCE IT BY DELIVERY OF WRITTEN NOTICE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE DISPUTE ARISES – OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.
