Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration
You are required to read this carefully. It impacts your rights. It is hereby required that you go through this.
Through our Contact Us page, almost majority of your concerns or issues can be resolved swiftly as well as quickly to your satisfaction by contacting our Customer Service Center. In the unlikely or improbable event that our Customer Service could not be able to resolve your complaint or issue to your satisfaction, or in case if we have not been able to resolve a dispute with you after striving to do so informally, we each agree to resolve those disputes as well as issues through binding arbitration instead of in a court.
Arbitration is less formal, when considering and comparing to a lawsuit. Instead of a jury or judge, arbitration utilizes a neutral arbitrator. Arbitration facilitates fewer discoveries than courts, and is subject to considerably limited court review. We understand and also agree that any arbitration considered under these Terms will take place on an individual basis. Please note that representative, group, collective or class actions or arbitrations are not allowed or permitted.
If you prevail in arbitration, as explained and detailed below, ILFT is willing to pay you more than the amount of the arbitrator’s award and will pay your reasonable or fair, actual attorney’s fees if you are awarded an amount greater than what ILFT offered you to amicably settle the dispute or issue before arbitration.
Please note that you may speak with or get in touch with your own attorney or lawyer before utilizing this Website or purchasing any Service, but your usage of this Website as well as the purchase of any Service constitutes your agreement and acceptance to these Terms.
The Arbitration Agreement is given below:
- Before a single arbitrator, please note that ILFT and you agree to arbitrate all the arising disputes as well as claims between us. The kinds or types of claims as well as disputes we agree to arbitrate are intended to be broadly interpreted and construed, including but not limited to the:
- issues or claims that arose before these or any other prior Terms became effective;
- issues or claims arising out of or associated with any aspect of the relationship or association between us, whether based in contract, statute, tort, deceit, fraud, misrepresentation, advertising, or any other legal theory;
- issues or claims that are currently the subject of proposed or purported class action litigation in which you do not belong to be a member of a certified class; and
- issues or claims that may arise after the termination of these listed Terms.
For the consideration and purposes of this Arbitration Agreement stated here, references to ‘ILFT,’ ‘us’ as well as ‘you,’ include our respective agents, subsidiaries, affiliates, staffs, employees, employers, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of Services under these Terms or any prior or earlier agreements and/or understanding between us.
Please note that this arbitration agreement does not preclude or prevent you bringing issues to the attention or to the notice of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law permits and allows, seek relief against us on behalf of you. You understand and completely agree that, by entering into these Terms, you and ILFT are each waiving and relinquishing the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a group, representative, collective arbitration or class action.
You understand and acknowledge that usage of this Website and/or purchase of Service constitutes a transaction in inter-state commerce.
Please be informed that the Federal Arbitration Act (also known as ‘FAA’) governs the interpretation as well as enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. Please also note that this Arbitration Agreement survives and considered valid even if these Terms are terminated.
- A party willing or seeking for arbitration under these Terms must first send, by the U.S. certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (in short, ‘Notice’) to the other party. Please be informed that ILFT may send a written Notice to the electronic mail (e-mail) address that you have given. For this purpose, ILFT will utilize the e-mail address that you have provided when you created an account, if any. Please also note that the Notice of Dispute must (i) describe or detail the nature as well as basis of the dispute or claim and (ii) set forth the specific or particular relief sought (that is, ‘Demand’).
Please note that you or ILFT may commence or initiate an arbitration proceeding, if ILFT and you do not reach an agreement to amicably resolve the claim or issue within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received.
You shall not be disclosed or intimated to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator decides the amount, if any, to which you or ILFT is entitled for claim at the time of the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by ILFT .
A form Notice can be downloaded or copied at: www.inityslawfirmtechnologies.com/disputenotice.pdf.
You may copy or download a form to initiate or begin arbitration from the American Arbitration Association (AAA) website at:www.adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_015820.
(Please note that there is a separate form available for California residents, which is also available on the American Arbitration Association (AAA) website at: www.adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_015822.
- Once ILFT receives or gets notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, it will promptly and quickly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your total claim amount is for more than $75,000. In case, if your total claim exceeds the value $75,000, If you are unable to pay this fee due to any reason and your total claim is for $75,000 or less, then ILFT will pay the filing fee directly after getting a written request at the Notice Address. Except as otherwise provided herein, ILFT will pay all AAA filing, service as well as arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated in accordance with these Terms. If, still, the arbitrator notices or finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or not serious or brought for an inappropriate and/or unlawful purpose (as measured by the standards in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all such fees will be governed as well as monitored by the AAA Rules. In such an event, you completely agree to reimburse the ILFT for all monies or amount previously disbursed by ILFT that are otherwise your obligation to pay as per the AAA Rules.
All arbitration proceeding will be governed and monitored by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (known as the ‘AAA Rules’) of the American Arbitration Association (AAA), as modified or changed by these Terms, and will be dealt with and administered by the AAA.
You can avail the AAA Rules online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA phone number at 1-800-778-7879. Please note that the arbitrator is bound by these Terms. All issues or problems are for the arbitrator to decide and determine except that issues or problems associated with the scope, enforceability, and interpretation of the arbitration provision and the scope, enforceability, and interpretation of paragraph (f) are for the court to take decision(s).
Please note that unless ILFT as well as you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the parish or county of the contact address that you have submitted to ILFT. In case if your total claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose or prefer whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted or provided to the arbitrator, by an in-person hearing or by a telephonic hearing governed by the AAA Rules. If you choose or prefer to precede either by telephone or in person, please be informed that we may choose to respond only by
written or telephone. In case, if your claim exceeds $10,000 value, the AAA Rules will determine whether you have any right to a telephone or in-person hearing. The parties involved understand and agree that in any arbitration under these Terms, neither party will rely as well as depend on any award or finding of fact or conclusion of law made in any other arbitration to which ILFT was a party. It need to be noticed that in all cases and scenarios, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned, written decision that is sufficient enough to explain the findings of fact as well as conclusions of law on which the award is based upon.
- In case if the arbitrator finds and decides in your favor in any respect on the merits of your claim, and the arbitrator issues or delivers you an award that is greater than the value of ILFT’s last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was chosen, then ILFT will pay you either the amount of the award or $2,000 (known as the ‘Alternative Payment’), whichever amount is greater, and additionally the actual
amount of reasonable attorney’s fees as well as expenses that you incurred in investigating, preparing, arranging and pursuing your claim in arbitration (that is, the ‘Attorney’s Payment’).
Please note that in case if we did not make you a written offer to amicably settle the dispute or issue before an arbitrator was selected, you will be entitled to get the Alternative Payment as well as the Attorney’s Payment, respectively, if the arbitrator awards you any relief based on the merits. The arbitrator may make rulings as well as resolve disputes as to the payment as well as reimbursement of expenses, fees, and the Alternative Payment and also the Attorney’s Payment at any point in time during the proceeding as well as upon request from either party made within the span of fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
In assessing and evaluating whether an award that includes attorney’s fees or expenses is greater than the value of ILFT’s last written settlement offer, the arbitrator shall take into consideration only the actual attorney’s fees or expenses reasonably incurred before ILFT’s settlement offer.
- Please note that the right to attorney’s fees as well as expenses discussed in paragraph (D) adds with any right to attorney’s fees as well as expenses you may have under applicable law. In case if you will be entitled to more amount under applicable law, this provision does not preclude or prevent the arbitrator from awarding or giving you that amount.
Nevertheless, please be informed that you may not recover duplicate awards of attorney’s fees or any costs. Even though under some laws ILFT may have a right to an award of attorney’s fees as well as expenses from you if it prevails in arbitration, ILFT will not attempt for such an award.
- The arbitrator may award monetary as well as injunctive relief only in the favor of the individual party asking for relief and only to the extent deemed necessary to offer relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. You and the ILFT understand and agree that each may bring claims against the other only in your or ILFT’s individual capabilities and not as class members or plaintiffs in any proposed or purported representative, group or class action or arbitration, or in the capacity of a private attorney general.
Moreover, unless you as well as ILFT agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not make a decision to consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form or type of a representative, group or class proceeding. Please note that the arbitrator may award or provide any relief that a court could award that is individualized to the claimant and would not affect or impact other customers or clients.
Please also note that neither you nor ILFT may seek non-individualized relief that would affect or impact other customers or clients. In case if a court decides that applicable law precludes or prevents enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular or specific claim for relief, then only that claim must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court. All other claims stay or remain subject to this Arbitration Agreement, as stated here.
- In case, if the total amount in dispute exceeds the value $75,000 or either party seeks any form of injunctive relief, either party may appeal the award or file an appeal against the award to a three-arbitrator panel administered and/or governed by AAA by a written notice of appeal within 30 days from the date of entry of the written arbitration award.
Please note that an award of injunctive relief could be stayed and could not be executed during any such appeal. The three-arbitrator panel’s members will be selected or chosen as per AAA rules. The three-arbitrator panel will issue or deliver its decision within a period of 120 days of the date of the appealing party’s notice of appeal.
