23. Choice of Law and Jurisdiction; Binding Arbitration
These Terms shall be governed by the laws of United States. Any disputes relating to these Terms shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of United States. If any part or provision of these Terms is found by a court or other authority to be invalid and/or unenforceable under applicable law, such part or provision will be modified, deleted and/or enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to give effect to the intent of these Terms. The other provisions will not be affected.
In the interest of resolving disputes between you and New Zealand Family Healthcare in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, you and New Zealand Family Healthcare agree that every dispute arising in connection with these Terms will be resolved by binding arbitration. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND NEW ZEALAND FAMILY HEALTHCARE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
Despite the provisions of the above, nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court; (b) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in a court of law; or (d) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
Any arbitration between you and New Zealand Family Healthcare will be settled under the Federal Arbitration Act, and governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting us.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if such other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail (“Notice”). Our address for Notice is: 9070 Irvine Center Dr Ste 135, Irvine, CA 92618-4690. The Notice must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, you or New Zealand Family Healthcare may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or New Zealand Family Healthcare must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any.
Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Orange County, California. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse New Zealand Family Healthcare for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
YOU AND NEW ZEALAND FAMILY HEALTHCARE AGREE THAT EACH 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 OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and New Zealand Family Healthcare agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
If New Zealand Family Healthcare makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to New Zealand Family Healthcare’s address for Notice, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) days of the change to New Zealand Family Healthcare’s address for Notice, in which case your account with New Zealand Family Healthcare will be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected will survive.
