This Section is referred to in these Terms of Service as the "Arbitration Agreement." You agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or mayarise between you and Kick & Push, whether relating to these Terms of Service (including any alleged breach thereof), the Services, any advertising,any aspect of the relationship between us, or otherwise, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court inaccordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that you may assert individual claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify.Further, this Arbitration Agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, and such agenciescan, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into this Terms of Service, you and Kick & Push are eachwaiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. TheFederal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.
Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief
YOU AND KICK & PUSH AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER INANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND KICK & PUSH AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE ORJOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO,THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLYTO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S).
Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution
Kick & Push is always interested in resolving disputes amicably and efficiently, and most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to thecustomer’s satisfaction by emailing customer support at firstname.lastname@example.org. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, a party who intends to seek arbitrationmust first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to Kick & Push should be sent to 409 16 th Street. Manhattan Beach, CA 90266 ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (b) setforth the specific relief sought. If Kick & Push and you do not resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you orKick & Push may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Kick & Push or you shall notbe disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Kick & Push is entitled.
Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s ("AAA") rules and procedures, including theAAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (collectively, the "AAA Rules"), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. For information onthe AAA, please visit its website, http://www.adr.org. Information about the AAA Rules and fees for consumer disputes can be found at the AAA’s consumerarbitration page, http://www.adr.org/consumer_arbitration. If there is any inconsistency between the AAA Rules and this Arbitration Agreement, the terms ofthis Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would notresult in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of these Terms of Service as a court would. All issues are forthe arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement.Although arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings, the arbitrator can award the samedamages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual under the Terms of Service and applicable law. Decisions by thearbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.
Unless Kick & Push and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location for both parties with dueconsideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination shall bemade by AAA. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, Kick & Push agrees that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basisof documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds$10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shallissue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
Costs of Arbitration
Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the "Arbitration Fees") will be governed by the AAA Rules, unless otherwiseprovided in this Arbitration Agreement. If the value of the relief sought is $75,000 or less, at your request, Kick & Push will pay all ArbitrationFees. If the value of relief sought is more than $75,000 and you are able to demonstrate to the arbitrator that you are economically unable to pay yourportion of the Arbitration Fees or if the arbitrator otherwise determines for any reason that you should not be required to pay your portion of theArbitration Fees, Kick & Push will pay your portion of such fees. In addition, if you demonstrate to the arbitrator that the costs of arbitration willbe prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Kick & Push will pay as much of the Arbitration Fees as the arbitrator deems necessary toprevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. Finally, if the value of the relief sought is $75,000 or less, Kick & Push will pay reasonableattorneys’ fees should you prevail. Kick & Push will not seek attorneys’ fees from you. But, if you initiate an arbitration in which you seek more than$75,000 in relief, the payment of attorneys’ fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of allparties.
