BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY — IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
Right to Opt-Out of Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver Within 30 Days. You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by this arbitration provision by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to PTE at Contact Us – Pushing the Envelope (getpushing.com).
The written notice must be submitted within thirty (30) days of the later of the date noted in the “Last Update to “Section” or your initial access of the Website. Your written notification must include: (1) your name, (2) your physical postal address, and (3) a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with any PTE Party through arbitration. Otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate any disputes, claims, or controversies in accordance with the terms of this Section. If you opt-out of this arbitration provision, no PTE Party will be bound by it. If you do not affirmatively elect to opt out as described above, your use of the Website and/or any service will be deemed to be your irrevocable acceptance of this Agreement and any changes/updates to this Section.
Notice of Dispute. IF YOU HAVE A DISPUTE WITH ANY PTE PARTY, YOU MUST FIRST SEND WRITTEN NOTICE OF THE NATURE OF THE DISPUTE TO PTE AT Contact Us – Pushing the Envelope (getpushing.com).
TO GIVE THE APPLICABLE PTE PARTY WITH WHICH YOU HAVE A DISPUTE THE OPPORTUNITY TO RESOLVE THE DISPUTE INFORMALLY THROUGH NEGOTIATION, you agree to negotiate resolution of the Dispute in good faith for no less than sixty (60) days after you provide notice of the Dispute. If the applicable PTE Party with which you have a Dispute does not resolve your Dispute within sixty (60) days from receipt of written notice of the Dispute, you and the applicable PTE Party with which you have a Dispute may pursue the claim in arbitration pursuant to the terms in this Section.
Class Action Waiver. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY — IT SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. Any disputes, claims or controversies, whether in arbitration or court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not on behalf of, or as part of, any purported class, consolidated, representative or private attorney general proceeding. You further agree that you shall not participate in any class, consolidated, representative or private attorney general proceeding (existing or future) brought by any third party involving a Dispute. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the disputes, claims, or controversies will not be subject to arbitration and must be litigated. The terms of this provision will be binding on you, your heirs, successors, and assigns.
All parties shall bear their costs of any arbitration filing fees and arbitration fees for all claims. Parties are responsible for all other additional costs that they may incur in connection with the arbitration including, but not limited to, attorney’s fees and expert witness costs unless a PTE Party is otherwise specifically required to pay such fees under applicable law. The decision of the arbitrator will be in writing and binding and conclusive on the PTE Party and you, and judgment to enforce the decision may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction. Dispositive motions, including without limitation, motions to dismiss and motions for summary judgment will be allowed in the arbitration. The arbitrator must follow this Agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court, including injunctive or other equitable relief, attorney’s fees, and expert witness costs. You understand that, absent this mandatory arbitration provision, the PTE Parties and you would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. You further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
If your claim is solely for monetary relief of $10,000.00 or less, and does not include a request for any type of equitable remedy, the arbitration will be conducted solely based on documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing.
Confidentiality of Arbitration Proceedings. Arbitration proceedings conducted pursuant to this Section shall be strictly confidential. The fact that an arbitration exists or is proceeding, the nature of the Dispute, all documents exchanged in connection with the arbitration, all testimony (including transcripts of testimony, if any) that is given in the arbitration proceeding, and any arbitration award shall remain confidential. The only exceptions to this confidentiality provision are disclosures reasonably necessary to confirm or vacate an arbitration award, a judicial challenge to an arbitration award or its enforcement, or disclosure that is required by operation of law or court order; provided, however, that this paragraph shall not prevent the disclosure of such information: (1) as may be required to your legal and financial advisors and independent accountants; (2) as may be required to a PTE Party’s (a) legal, financial and other professional advisors, regulators, rating agencies, independent accountants, analysts, agents, and/or directors, (b) members, managers, and/or affiliates and their respective officers, directors and legal, financial and other professional advisors, and/or (c) existing or potential insurers or reinsurers, existing or potential investors, existing or potential lenders, or existing or potential purchasers; and/or (3) as otherwise required to comply with any applicable law or regulation.
Location of Arbitration. You agree to initiate arbitration in Lee County, Florida.
Severability. If any clause within this Section (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that specific clause will be severed from this Section, and the remainder of this Section will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, this entire Section will be unenforceable, and the Dispute will be decided by a court and you and PTE each agree to waive in that instance, to the fullest extent allowed by law, any trial by jury.
Continuation. This Section shall survive any termination of this Agreement or the provision of any service to you.
