DISPUTE RESOLUTION – Binding Individual Arbitration & Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver (“Arbitration Agreement”)
Mandatory Binding Arbitration of Disputes. You and Caresys Inc. agree that, subject to limited exceptions specified in this Arbitration Agreement, all disputes, causes of action, or claims arising out of, in connection with, or related to these Terms or this Arbitration Agreement, the Caresys Inc. Services, or any aspect of the relationship between you, on the one hand, and Caresys Inc. or its suppliers or sellers, on the other hand, or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity of the Terms or this Arbitration Agreement (collectively, “Disputes”), will be resolved through final and binding, individual arbitration in accordance with the rules and procedures of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), instead of in a court in any jurisdiction by a judge or jury. You and Caresys Inc. agree that an arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this Arbitration Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall also be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether the Terms are unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, or estoppel.
Notwithstanding this Arbitration Agreement, you and Caresys Inc. each retain the right to bring an individual action in small claims court if it qualifies. Each party also retains 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.
Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver. You and Caresys Inc. agree that each party is waiving the right to trial by a jury or to participate in any purported class, collective, aggregate, mass, representative, or consolidated action, arbitration, or other proceeding. Unless both you and Caresys Inc. agree in writing, each party 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, collective, aggregate, mass, representative, or consolidated action, arbitration, or other proceeding. If the parties’ Dispute is resolved through arbitration, the arbitrator may not consolidate another person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative, mass, or class proceeding. If the foregoing sentence is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement section shall be null and void, and you and Caresys Inc. shall be deemed not to have agreed to arbitrate disputes on a mass or class basis. This Arbitration Agreement shall survive any termination of these Terms.
