11.          Dispute Resolution and Arbitration

 

a)    Dispute Resolution 

If a dispute arises between you and Dysgraphia Life, our goal is to provide you with a neutral and cost-effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. Accordingly, you and Dysgraphia Life agree that any dispute, claim or controversy between us arising out of or related to the Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, of the Services or your use of the Services (collectively, "Disputes") will be finally settled by individual binding arbitration in accordance with this “Dispute Resolution” section, and not in a court of law. This “Dispute Resolution” section shall also be referred to as the “Arbitration Agreement.” Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court, if the claims qualify, so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis.
 

Without limiting the preceding sentence, you will also have the right to litigate Disputes in a court of competent jurisdiction if you provide Dysgraphia Life with written notice of your desire to do so by email to info@dysgraphia.life or regular mail at our offices located at Dysgraphia Life Benefit Corporation, PO Box 8038, Vienna VA 22183, Attn: Legal within thirty (30) days following the date you first receive this Agreement ("Arbitration Opt-out Notice"). Such notice must include your full name, address, Dysgraphia Life username, the email address you currently use to access your Dysgraphia Life account, and a clear statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you do not provide Dysgraphia Life with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice within this thirty (30) day period, you will be deemed to have knowingly and intentionally waived your right to litigate any Dispute in court except as expressly set forth with respect to individual actions in small claims courts. You acknowledge and agree that you and Dysgraphia Life 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. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party reserves the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction with respect to any dispute related to the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's intellectual property or proprietary rights or breach of the User Content and Activities provisions of this Agreement.

 

b)   Class Action Waiver

You and Dysgraphia Life agree to waive the right to have any Dispute within the scope of this Arbitration Agreement be brought, heard, administered, resolved, or arbitrated on a class, collective, or mass action basis. All Disputes within the scope of this Arbitration Agreement must be arbitrated on an individual basis and not on a class, collective or mass basis, and an arbitrator shall not have any authority to hear, arbitrate or resolve any claim on a class, collective, and/or mass action basis, or to award relief to anyone but the individual in arbitration (“Class Action Waiver”), or to consolidate arbitrations, except as provided in the Batch Arbitration section below. If, however, this Class Action Waiver is deemed invalid or unenforceable with respect to a particular Dispute, neither you nor Dysgraphia Life will be entitled to arbitration of such Dispute. If a court determines by means of a final decision not subject to any further appeal or recourse, that the Class Action Waiver is invalid or unenforceable with respect to a particular claim or request for relief, you and Dysgraphia Life agree that that particular claim or request for relief may be adjudicated in court, but shall be severed and the court proceeding stayed pending arbitration of the remaining claims. This Class Action Waiver does not prevent you or Dysgraphia Life from participating in a class-wide settlement of claims.


c)   Informal Dispute Resolution

There might be instances when a Dispute arises between you and Dysgraphia Life. If that occurs, Dysgraphia Life is committed to working with you to reach a reasonable resolution. You and Dysgraphia Life agree that good faith informal efforts to resolve Disputes can result in a prompt, low-cost and mutually beneficial outcome. You and Dysgraphia Life therefore agree that before either party commences arbitration against the other (or initiates an action in small claims court if a party so elects), we will personally meet and confer telephonically or via videoconference, in a good faith effort to resolve informally any Dispute covered by this Arbitration Agreement (“Informal Dispute Resolution Conference”). If you are represented by counsel, your counsel may participate in the conference, but you will also participate in the conference. The party initiating a Dispute must give notice to the other party in writing of his or her intent to initiate an Informal Dispute Resolution Conference, which shall occur within 45 days after the other party receives such notice, unless an extension is mutually agreed upon by the parties. Notice to Dysgraphia Life that you intend to initiate an Informal Dispute Resolution Conference should be sent by email to info@dysgraphia.life or regular mail to our offices located at Dysgraphia Life Dysgraphia Life Benefit Corporation, PO Box 8038, Vienna VA 22183, Attn: Legal. The notice must include: (1) your name, telephone number, mailing address, e-mail address associated with your account and your account username; (2) the name, telephone number, mailing address and email address of your counsel, if any; and (3) a description of your claim. The Informal Dispute Resolution Conference shall be individualized such that a separate conference must be held each time either party initiates a claim, even if the same law firm or group of law firms represents multiple users in similar cases, unless all parties agree otherwise; multiple individuals initiating a Dispute cannot participate in the same Informal Dispute Resolution Conference unless all parties agree otherwise. In the time between a party receiving notice and the Informal Dispute Resolution Conference, nothing in this Arbitration Agreement shall prohibit the parties from engaging in informal communications to resolve the initiating party’s claims. Engaging in the Informal Dispute Resolution Conference is a condition precedent and requirement that must be fulfilled before commencing arbitration. The statute of limitations and any filing fee deadlines shall be tolled while the parties engage in the Informal Dispute Resolution Conference process required by this section.


d)       Commencing the Arbitration, Arbitration Rules, Governing Law

If the Informal Dispute Resolution Conference process above does not resolve satisfactorily the Dispute within 60 days after receipt of the notice, you and Dysgraphia Life agree that either party shall seek to finally resolve the Dispute through binding individual arbitration. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the "AAA Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this section of this Agreement. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org.)


A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a Request for Arbitration (the “Request”). The Request must include: (1) the name, telephone number, mailing address, e-mail address of the party seeking arbitration and the account username as well as the email address associated with the account; (2) a statement of the legal claims being asserted and the factual bases of those claims; (3) a description of the remedy sought and an accurate, good-faith calculation of the amount in controversy in United States Dollars; (4) a statement certifying completion of the Informal Dispute Resolution Conference as described above; and (5) the party’s portion of the applicable filing fee. If the party requesting arbitration is represented by counsel, the Request shall also include counsel’s name, telephone number, mailing address and email address. Counsel must also sign the Request. By signing the Request, counsel certifies to the best of counsel’s knowledge, information, and belief, formed after an inquiry reasonable under the circumstances, that (1) the Request is not being presented for any improper purpose, such as to harass, cause unnecessary delay, or needlessly increase the cost of dispute resolution; (2) the claims, defenses and other legal contentions are warranted by existing law or by a nonfrivolous argument for extending, modifying, or reversing existing law or for establishing new law; (3) the factual and damages contentions have evidentiary support or, if specifically so identified, will likely have evidentiary support after a reasonable opportunity for further investigation or discovery. The Agreement are governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia without regard to its conflict of law provisions. The parties acknowledge that the Agreement evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce and that notwithstanding the provision in the preceding sentence with respect to the applicable substantive law, the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §1 et seq. (“FAA”) will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement and any arbitration proceedings. If for whatever reason the FAA is inapplicable, the state law governing arbitration agreements in the state in which you reside shall apply. Except as follows, the arbitrator shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any Dispute relating to the interpretation, scope, applicability, enforceability, validity or formation of this Arbitration Agreement. The exceptions to the preceding sentence are (1) all Disputes arising out of or relating to the Class Action Waiver, including any claim that all or part of the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, illegal, void or voidable, or such Class Action Waiver has been breached, shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator; (2) all Disputes arising out of or relating to the payment of arbitration fees shall be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator; and (3) all Disputes arising out of or relating to whether either party has satisfied the condition precedent of engaging in the pre-arbitration Informal Dispute Resolution Conference discussed in the “Informal Dispute Resolution” section above, shall be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. The parties agree that any and all due dates for arbitration fees shall be suspended, and no action for unpaid fees shall lie, while any Dispute arising out or relating to the Class Action Waiver, the payment of arbitration fees and/or the pre-arbitration Informal Dispute Resolution Conference are being resolved.


e)      Arbitrator

The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the Commonwealth of Virginia and will be selected by the parties from the AAA's roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within thirty-five (35) days of delivery of the Request, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules, provided that if the Batch Arbitration process is triggered (as described below), the AAA will appoint the arbitrator for each batch.


f)       Arbitration Location and Procedure

Unless you and Dysgraphia Life otherwise agree, or the Batch Arbitration process is triggered, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Dysgraphia Life submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator may direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration. The arbitrator has the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claims or counterclaims.

 

g)      Batch Arbitration

You agree that any and all Disputes not resolved by the Informal Dispute Resolution Conference process will be finally resolved by arbitration in accordance with the AAA Rules then in effect, except as modified herein. Fees will be assessed based on the AAA Multiple Consumer Case Filings fees then in effect. To increase the efficiency of administration and resolution of arbitrations, you and Dysgraphia Life agree that in the event that there are 100 or more individual Requests of a similar nature filed against Dysgraphia Life by or with the assistance of the same law firm, group of law firms or organizations within a 30 day period (or otherwise in close proximity), the AAA (1) will administer the arbitration demands in batches of 100 Requests per batch (plus, to the extent there are less than 100 Requests left over after the batching described above, a final batch consisting of the remaining Requests); (2) appoint one arbitrator for each batch; and (3) provide for the resolution of each batch as a single consolidated arbitration with one set of case management fees and arbitrator compensation due per batch, one procedural calendar, one hearing (if any) in a place to be determined by the arbitrator, and one final award (“Batch Arbitration”). All parties agree that Requests are of a “similar nature” if they arise out of the same event or factual scenario and raise the same or similar legal issues and seek the same or similar relief. To the extent the parties disagree on the applicability of the Batch Arbitration process, the disagreeing party shall advise the AAA, and the AAA shall appoint a sole standing arbitrator to determine the Batch Arbitration process’ applicability (“Administrative Arbitrator”). In an effort to expedite resolution of any such dispute by the Administrative Arbitrator, the parties agree the Administrative Arbitrator may set forth such procedures as are necessary to resolve any disputes promptly. The Administrative Arbitrator’s fees shall be paid by Dysgraphia Life. You and Dysgraphia Life agree to cooperate in good faith with the AAA to implement the Batch Arbitration approach including the payment of single case management fees and arbitrator compensation for batches of Requests, as well as any steps to minimize the time and costs of arbitration, which may include: (1) the appointment of a discovery special master to assist the arbitrator in the resolution of discovery disputes; and (2) the adoption of an expedited calendar of the arbitration proceedings. This Batch Arbitration provision shall in no way be interpreted as authorizing a class, collective and/or mass arbitration or action of any kind, or arbitration involving joint or consolidated claims under any circumstances, except as set forth in this section.

 

h)      Arbitrator's Decision

The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA rules. The arbitrator's award 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. The arbitrator's awarding of damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section of this Agreement as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the party's individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration, you may seek an award of reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent permitted under applicable law. Dysgraphia Life will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys' fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration, unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Request was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)). The award shall be binding only among the parties and shall have no preclusive effect in any other arbitration or other proceeding involving a different party. The arbitrator may consider, but under no circumstances is the arbitrator bound by, decisions reached in separate arbitrations.


i)       Fees

Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing fees, case management fees and arbitrator compensation will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules (see Costs of Arbitration). However, if the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Request was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), Dysgraphia Life shall have the right to seek recovery of any AAA filing fees, case management fees and arbitrator compensation it has paid.


j)          Invalidity, Expiration, and Termination

If any part or parts of this “Dispute Resolution” section are found to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the “Dispute Resolution” section shall continue in full force and effect to the fullest extent permitted by law. This "Dispute Resolution" section shall survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement or your relationship with Dysgraphia Life.

 

You agree that any Dispute that you have with Dysgraphia Life as detailed in this “Legal Disputes” section must be initiated via arbitration within the applicable statute of limitation for that claim or controversy, or it will be forever time barred. Likewise, you agree that all applicable statutes of limitation will apply to such arbitration in the same manner as those statutes of limitation would apply in the applicable court of competent jurisdiction in the U.S.


k)         Changes

Dysgraphia Life reserves the right to change this “Dispute Resolution” section. If Dysgraphia Life changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted the Agreement (or accepted any subsequent changes to the Agreement), it will notify you. You agree that your continued use of Services will be deemed acceptance of those changes. If you do not agree to such changes, you may reject any such changes by sending us written notice (including by email to legal) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the "Last Updated" date. In order to be effective, the notice must include your full name, address, Dysgraphia Life username, the email address you currently use to access your Dysgraphia Life account and clearly indicate your intent to reject changes to this "Dispute Resolution" section. Dysgraphia Life’s updates to this “Dispute Resolution” section do not provide you with a new opportunity to opt out of the Arbitration Agreement if you have previously agreed to a version of the Agreement and did not validly opt out of arbitration. If you reject any change or update to this “Dispute Resolution” section, and you were bound by an existing agreement to arbitrate disputes arising out of or relating to this Agreement, Services or your use of the Services, the provisions of the “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted the terms of this Agreement (or accepted any subsequent changes to this Agreement) remain in full force and effect. Dysgraphia Life will continue to honor any valid opt outs of the Arbitration Agreement that you made to a prior version of the Agreement. Updates to this “Dispute Resolution” section will not change your standing with respect to any litigation between Dysgraphia Life and you that is already pending in a federal or state court or an arbitration as of the date these updated Agreement go into effect (as indicated in the “Last Updated” date). Updates to this “Dispute Resolution” section will apply to any litigation or arbitration between Dysgraphia Life and you that is commenced after this Agreement go into effect (as indicated in the “Last Updated” date), including in relation to events, circumstances or claims that pre-date this update, unless you validly opt out as described above.
