  • DISPUTE RESOLUTION – ARBITRATION

PLEASE READ THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.

You and CHB agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Site (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court; (b) the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights; (c) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state or local agency if that action is available; and (d) seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND CHB ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and CHB otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.

Limitation on Time to Bring Disputes. To help in resolving any issues between us promptly, you agree that you will bring any Disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms, our relationship, or the use of the Site within one year after a Dispute arises; otherwise, the Dispute is waived. This limitation applies regardless of the venue in which such Dispute is or could otherwise be asserted.

Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. The parties agree that the Federal Arbitration Act applies and will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.

Arbitration Process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an experienced (15+ years practicing) attorney licensed to practice law in the state of Washington.

Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and CHB otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your Dispute does not exceed US$10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and CHB submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your Dispute exceeds US$10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties.

Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent, to the extent permitted by law, with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable.

Fees. Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. If applicable arbitration rules or laws require us to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this Dispute Resolution provision to be enforceable, then we will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration.

Changes. Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Modification” section above, if CHB changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated Date” above or in the date of CHB’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and CHB in accordance with the arbitration provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section (however entitled) as of the date you first accepted these Terms or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms.

  • Entire Agreement

These Terms, including all agreements and provisions incorporated herein, constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between CHB and you regarding the Site, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between CHB and you regarding the Site.

  • Miscellaneous

Any failure by CHB to enforce, or CHB’s waiver of, any right or provision of these Terms, or any breach of such right or provision, will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of CHB. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, our exercise of any available remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to our other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. Throughout these Terms, the word “include” or “including” means “including, but not limited to”. Provisions that by their nature are intended to survive the termination of these Terms or your use of the Site will survive.
