- ARBITRATION AND WAIVER
ANY AND ALL DISPUTES YOU OR RECASTIO HAS RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE SERVICES, PRODUCTS, CONTENT, THIS AGREEMENT, OR YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH RECASTIO (COLLECTIVELY, THE “CLAIMS”) WILL BE SUBMITTED TO CONFIDENTIAL ARBITRATION. Claims include, without limitation, claims based in contract, tort (including intentional tort), fraud, agency, negligence, statutory or regulatory provisions, or any other source of law. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this Agreement.
THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. HOWEVER, AN ARBITRATOR CAN AWARD ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF AS A COURT (INICLUDING INJUNCTIVE AND DECLARATORY RELIEF OR STATUTORY DAMAGES), AND MUST FOLLOW THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT AS A COURT WOULD.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to Recastio’s email address at email@example.com or to Recastio’s customer service department at 4501 Hills & Dales Rd NW, Suite 201, Canton, Ohio 44708. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules, including AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at ww.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. You may choose to have arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in Stark County, Ohio.
YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. IF FOR ANY REASON A CLAIM PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN IN ARBITRATION, YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
If any term or provision of this Agreement or any application thereof shall be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement and any other application of such term or provision shall not be affected thereby.
