DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION 

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROVISIONS CAREFULLY, AS THESE PROVISIONS PROVIDE FOR THE RESOLUTION OF MOST DISPUTES THROUGH THE USE OF BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND ALSO INCLUDE CERTAIN WAIVERS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, CLASS ACTION AND CLASS ARBITRATION WAIVERS.

  • A. Dispute Resolution Generally

    • By accessing or using the Website, you agree to be bound by the Dispute Resolution Provisions set forth in Sections 8(B) through 8(H) below. If either (i) Flash or any of its owners, officers, directors, employees, representatives or agents (for purposes of this Article 8, individually or collectively, “Flash”), or (ii) you has any legal claim or dispute against the other, including, but not limited to, those arising from or in connection with, or otherwise relating to, your access to or use of the Website, these Website Terms of Use, the Privacy Policy, or any action or omission by Flash with respect to the foregoing (each, a “Dispute”), then the party initiating the Dispute must first try to contact the other to resolve the Dispute informally in good faith. Flash will attempt to contact you by using any contact information provided by you to us; however, in the event you have not provided any such information, Flash is obligated only to make commercially reasonable efforts to contact you. To contact Flash, you must write to Flash at Flash Wireless, LLC, Attn: Legal Department, 1000 Progress Place, Concord, NC 28025, or by email at legalnotices@acninc.com, which correspondence must include a physical mailing address for future correspondence with you. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Sections 8(B) through 8(H) below, you and Flash each acknowledge and agree that in the event the dispute resolution provisions contained in the IBO Agreement (the “IBO Dispute Provisions”) are applicable to the relevant Dispute, and there is a conflict between the Dispute Resolution Provisions below and those contained in the IBO Dispute Provisions, then the IBO Dispute Provisions shall govern and control.
  • B. Arbitration

      • a.  All Disputes (in any case, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal or equitable theory), to the extent not prohibited by applicable law, shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration, pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) (available at the following address: https://www.adr.org/sites/default/files/Commercial%20Rules.pdf) or other applicable AAA rules, as in effect at the time of the arbitration and as modified herein. You may contact the AAA in writing at one of its locations (e.g., South Park Tower, 6000 Fairview Road, Suite 1200, Charlotte, NC 28210). You may also obtain additional information about the AAA and its procedures from the AAA’s website, at www.adr.org. Notwithstanding the foregoing in this subsection 8(B)(a), either you or Flash may bring an individual action against the other party in small claims court (or comparable court of competent jurisdiction) so long as the only parties to that action are you and Flash and the total value of the claims made in the action is less than the claim limit applicable in the jurisdiction in which the claim is filed. Following the contact required in Section 8(A) above and prior to commencing an arbitration proceeding with the AAA, a party seeking to arbitrate any Dispute must send to the other party, via certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to you must be sent by Flash to the physical address provided in your initial contact pursuant to Section 8(A) above or, if you failed to provide a physical address, then you agree to accept Notice via email. The Notice to Flash must be addressed to Flash Wireless, LLC, Attn: Legal Department, 1000 Progress Place, Concord, NC 28025. The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or Dispute; and (ii) describe the specific relief sought. You and Flash each expressly agree to attempt to resolve any Dispute by first sending (or making reasonable efforts to send) the Notice to the other party prior to initiating or commencing an arbitration proceeding with the AAA.
      • b.  If a Dispute is not satisfactorily resolved within sixty (60) days after the Notice is sent, either party may then commence an arbitration proceeding with the AAA.
      • c.  If the amount involved in the Dispute is less than $20,000, the arbitration will be conducted, at your election, (i) in person in the jurisdiction in which your primary residence is located, or (ii) by telephonic hearing. If the amount in Dispute is $20,000 or more, the arbitration will be conducted in Charlotte, North Carolina. Each of you and Flash has the right to be represented by an attorney in any arbitration.
      • d.  The number of arbitrators shall be mutually agreed upon by the parties; provided, however, that in event the parties cannot agree on the number of arbitrators, the AAA Rules will control. In all cases, the award of the arbitrator(s) shall be accompanied by a reasoned opinion. Punitive or exemplary damages shall be allowed only to the extent the remedy is expressly available under Applicable Law. Discovery shall consist of interrogatories, document requests, and no more than five depositions of seven hours or less each, per side; provided, however, that the arbitrator(s) may award additional discovery upon motion by either party and a showing of need and/or the inability to pursue or defend claims absent additional discovery.
      • e.  The party initiating the arbitration must pay the applicable AAA filing fee when submitting its written request for arbitration to the AAA. Unless otherwise provided for in the AAA Rules, all other administrative fees and expenses of arbitration, including the fees and expenses of the arbitrator, will be divided equally between the parties.
      • f.  Unless applicable substantive law provides otherwise, each party will pay its own expenses to participate in the arbitration, including attorneys’ fees and expenses for witnesses, document production, and evidence presentation. The arbitrator(s) shall have the authority to award the same damages and other relief that would have been available to the parties as individual claimants in court.
      • g.  Any award may be confirmed and enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitration will be confidential, and neither you nor Flash may disclose the existence, content, or results of the arbitration, except as necessary to conduct the proceedings, to confirm and enforce the award, to its own legal or financial advisors, by agreement, or as may be required by applicable law.
  • C. CLASS ARBITRATION WAIVER

    EACH DISPUTE WILL BE RESOLVED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. EACH OF YOU AND FLASH SPECIFICALLY AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A CLAIMANT OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, COLLECTIVE, REPRESENTATIVE, OR GROUP PROCEEDING. NO CLASS, COLLECTIVE, REPRESENTATIVE, OR GROUP ARBITRATIONS ARE PERMITTED EVEN IF ALLOWED UNDER THE APPLICABLE AAA RULES. EACH PARTY AGREES THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE PROCEEDINGS OF MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CLASS, COLLECTIVE, REPRESENTATIVE, OR GROUP PROCEEDING (“CLASS ARBITRATION WAIVER”). EACH OF YOU AND FLASH ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE CLASS ARBITRATION WAIVER IS MATERIAL AND ESSENTIAL TO THE RESOLUTION OF ANY DISPUTE. THEREFORE, IF THE CLASS ARBITRATION WAIVER IS LIMITED, VOIDED, OR OTHERWISE FOUND UNENFORCEABLE, SUCH THAT CLASS, COLLECTIVE, REPRESENTATIVE, OR GROUP ARBITRATION IS ALLOWED, THEN THE ENTIRETY OF SECTIONS 8(B) ABOVE AND 8(F) BELOW (BUT ONLY SECTIONS 8(B) ABOVE AND 8(F) BELOW) SHALL BE NULL AND VOID, AND IF A PARTY CHOOSES TO PROCEED WITH ITS CLAIM IT MUST DO SO IN COURT PURSUANT TO SECTIONS 8(D) AND 8(E) AND ARTICLE 9 BELOW. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING ELSE CONTAINED IN THESE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROVISIONS, THE INTERPRETATION, APPLICABILITY, ENFORCEABILITY, AND VALIDITY OF THE CLASS ARBITRATION WAIVER AND ANY ATTENDANT QUESTION OR DISPUTE REGARDING THE VOIDANCE OF THE ARBITRATION PROVISIONS SET FORTH IN SECTION 8(B) ABOVE, SHALL IN EACH CASE BE DECIDED ONLY BY A COURT AND NOT BY AN ARBITRATOR.

    NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER PROVISION CONTAINED IN THESE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROVISIONS TO THE CONTRARY, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD MONEY OR INJUNCTIVE RELIEF ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF WARRANTED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM. NO CLASS, COLLECTIVE, REPRESENTATIVE, GROUP, OR APPLICABLE PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL THEORIES OF LIABILITY, OR PRAYERS FOR RELIEF, MAY BE MAINTAINED IN ANY ARBITRATION HELD PURSUANT TO THESE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROVISIONS.

  • D. CLASS ACTION WAIVER

    IN THE EVENT ANY DISPUTE PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN THROUGH ARBITRATION, FOR ANY REASON, EACH OF YOU AND FLASH AGREE THAT SUCH DISPUTE WILL ONLY BE RESOLVED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. EACH OF YOU AND FLASH SPECIFICALLY AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, COLLECTIVE, REPRESENTATIVE, OR GROUP PROCEEDING.

  • E. JURY TRIAL WAIVER

    TO THE EXTENT ANY DISPUTE PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN THROUGH ARBITRATION, FOR ANY REASON, IF NOT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, EACH OF YOU AND FLASH HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

  • F. Delegation to Arbitrator

    Except as provided in Section 8(C) above, you and Flash acknowledge and agree that the arbitrator(s), and not any federal, state, or local court, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any Dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or validity of these Dispute Resolution Provisions, including without limitation any claim that these Dispute Resolution Provisions are void or voidable.

  • G. Severability

    If any provision contained in these Dispute Resolution Provisions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be modified automatically to the minimum extent necessary to render the parties’ agreement to arbitrate valid and enforceable. If a provision conflicts with a mandatory provision of applicable law, the conflicting provision shall be severed automatically and the remainder construed to incorporate the mandatory provision. In the event of such severance or modification, the remainder shall not be affected.

  • H. Termination and Survival

    These Dispute Resolution Provisions shall remain in effect even after the expiration or termination of your use of the Website.

Governing Law and Jurisdiction

These Website Terms of Use, including their formation, construction, interpretation, and enforceability, are governed by and shall be construed in accordance with the law of the State of North Carolina, without regard to its choice of law rules. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each of you and Flash acknowledge and agree that the relationship between you is an interstate commerce transaction and, accordingly, the Dispute Resolution Provisions set forth in Article 8 above, and the interpretation and the enforceability of the Dispute Resolution Provisions, are and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, and no state law shall apply if, and to the extent such state law is preempted, by the Federal Arbitration Act. Subject to the foregoing, the substantive law of the State of North Carolina shall govern the substance of any Dispute arbitrated under the Dispute Resolution Provisions. Further, any court proceedings between you and Flash shall be governed by the laws of the State of North Carolina, without regard to its choice of law rules, and such proceedings shall take place in North Carolina; provided, however, that if you bring a small claims action as permitted in subsection 8(B)(b) above, you may do so in the jurisdiction of your primary residence. Subject to the arbitration requirements contained in Section 8(B) above, for any court action brought in a jurisdiction consistent with the foregoing sentence, each of you and Flash agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of such court and waive any objection as to venue or inconvenient forum.

Waiver and Severability

No waiver by us of any term or condition set out in these Website Terms of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure by us to assert a right or provision under these Website Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Except as provided in Section 8(G) above, which shall control for purposes of Section 8, if any provision of these Website Terms of Use is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms of Use will continue in full force and effect.
