1.29  Disputes - Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

Please read this section carefully.

CatLadyBox is committed to customer satisfaction. We will make our best efforts to resolve all customer concerns or problems related to our website, products and services. You may pursue a claim against CatLadyBox or our affiliates, as explained in this arbitration agreement, for any unresolved concern or problem. The arbitration agreement stipulates: (1) the initial process for you to follow in reporting your claim to CatLadyBox prior to filing any arbitration or lawsuit in accordance with this arbitration agreement; and, if CatLadyBox is unable to resolve your claim, (2) the recourse available to you in arbitration or, in limited circumstances, in court.

  1. Governing Law and Jurisdiction. You and we agree that this arbitration agreement is evidence of a transaction in interstate commerce and will be interpreted and enforced in accordance with the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and Florida law, regardless of conflict of law rules. Any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration, as set forth in this section, will be resolved exclusively in the federal or state courts of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States of America, and you and we consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts. In cases where applicable local law prevents a dispute from being resolved under Florida law or in the Florida courts, then the laws of your country, state, or other place of residence will govern the dispute.

  2. Scope. This arbitration agreement is intended to be given the broadest interpretation. By doing business with CatLadyBox, you agree that any and all disputes arising out of or relating to your relationship with us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal grounds, and including the interpretation and scope of this arbitration agreement (each a “Claim” and collectively “Claims”), will be resolved via mandatory, binding arbitration, except as set forth in sub-Section h, below.

  3. Opt-Out Procedure. Notwithstanding the above, you may opt out of this binding arbitration provision within 30 days after this Section comes into effect (the “Opt Out Deadline”). This will be the earliest of:

    • the date you first used our Site,
    • the date you first used our Services or ordered Products or
    • the date you started a relationship with us.

    You may opt out of these arbitration procedures by sending us a written notice by email to [email protected] with the subject line: “ Arbitration – Opt-Out Notice”.

    You agree that you must pursue any Claim in arbitration if we do not receive an opt-out notice from you, or if we receive an opt-out notice from you more than 3 days after the Opt-Out Deadline.

  4. Mandatory Pre-Dispute Resolution. If a Claim arises, CatLadyBox is committed to working with you to reach a reasonable resolution. Prior to initiating any dispute or Claim in arbitration you must first give CatLadyBox an opportunity to resolve any complaints by submitting them in writing to [email protected] with the subject line “ Dispute Notice.” Your Dispute Notice must contain the following information: (1) your name, (2) address, (3) the email address used to make your purchase, (4) the confirmation number, (5) the date, (6) a brief description of the nature of the complaint, and (7) the resolution sought (together, the “Required Information”).

    If your Dispute Notice does not contain all of the Required Information (or an explanation of why you are unable to include it), then the Dispute Notice shall be without effect, and must be resubmitted before any arbitration or other legal action against CatLadyBox can be initiated. This requirement is intended to inform CatLadyBox that you have a dispute to be resolved. If we do not resolve the complaint within 60 days of the initiation of the Dispute Notice you shall be entitled to seek relief as stipulated in this arbitration agreement.

  5. Arbitration Procedure. Any arbitration shall be initiated through and administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in the English language. Should the AAA decline to administer the arbitration or otherwise be unable to administer the arbitration for any reason, you agree that CatLadyBox shall select an alternative arbitration forum, and that you will agree in writing to administration of the arbitration by the alternative arbitration forum selected by CatLadyBox.

    Each party will responsible for its own initiation fees for arbitration, but if your entire Claim is for less than $1,000, CatLadyBox shall reimburse you for the filing fee upon written request for reimbursement with documentation of insufficient funds to pay the fee. In the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration would be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, CatLadyBox will pay as much of the fees and costs in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary in order to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation. In all other cases, we will each bear the fees and expenses for our respective attorneys, experts, witnesses, and for preparation and presentation of evidence at the arbitration.

    Arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the AAA’s rules, including the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (as applicable), as modified by this arbitration agreement. If there is a conflict between the AAA’s rules and this arbitration agreement, the terms of this arbitration agreement shall govern. AAA rules and information about arbitration and fees are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.

    The arbitration will be conducted by one arbitrator, who will be appointed by the AAA. The customer agrees that the arbitration will be conducted in the English language. For claims under $25,000, the arbitration will not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses but will instead be conducted based solely on written submissions, unless the arbitrator determines that an in-person or telephone appearance is required.

    Any hearing will be conducted virtually unless the arbitrator determines that a party’s right to a fundamentally fair process would be impaired without an in-person hearing. In the case of an in-person hearing, such hearing will take place in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (unless you and we agree differently). You agree that, in the event of an in-person hearing, any CatLadyBox employee or affiliate who is based outside of the United States and who is participating in the hearing, may participate by telephone or video conference, and his or her physical presence shall not be required.

    Ordinarily, pre-hearing information exchanges will be limited to the reasonable production of non-privileged documents directly relevant to the dispute. Unless the arbitrator determines that an additional form of information exchange is necessary to provide for a fundamentally fair process, those documents will be limited to your use of our Services and purchase of the Products and communications directly related to the transaction between you and CatLadyBox, with respect to the Services and/or Products that are the subject of your dispute. Any issues regarding discovery, or the relevance or scope thereof, shall be determined by the arbitrator, and the arbitrator’s determination shall be conclusive.

    Any arbitration shall be confidential, and neither party may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction.

  6. Arbitration Award. The arbitrator will have the power to grant declaratory or injunctive relief, whether interim or final, only in favor of you individually and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by your individual claim without affecting other Booking.com customers, and any provisional measures ordered by the arbitrator may be enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction .

    Nothing in these Terms will prevent you from seeking public injunctive relief separately from arbitration in court, and any such application will not be deemed incompatible with the arbitration agreement to arbitrate or as a waiver of the right to arbitrate your individual claims. You and we agree that any claims for damages must be heard in arbitration first, with any claims seeking a remedy of public injunctive relief in court proceeding only after the arbitration of all arbitrable Claims, and will be stayed pending the outcome of the arbitration pursuant to section 3 of the Federal Arbitration Act. If you file a lawsuit in court seeking public injunctive relief before meeting the preconditions of the pre-dispute negotiation process and agreement to arbitrate, you will be waiving your right to seek damages from CatLadyBox or its affiliates relating to the relationship governed by these Terms of Use.

  7. Appeal. The award may be appealed pursuant to the AAA’s Optional Appellate Arbitration Rules (“Appellate Rules”); and shall not be considered final until after the time for filing the notice of appeal pursuant to the Appellate Rules has expired. Appeals must be initiated within thirty (30) days of receipt of an award, as defined by Rule A-3 of the Appellate Rules, by filing a Notice of Appeal with any AAA office. Following the appeal process the decision rendered by the appeal tribunal may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

  8. Exceptions to Arbitration Agreement. You and we each agree that the following causes of action and/or claims for relief are exceptions to the Claims covered by the arbitration agreement and will be brought in a judicial proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction (as outlined in this arbitration agreement): (i) any claim or cause of action alleging actual or threatened regarding the infringement, protection or validity of your, our or our licensors' intellectual property, trade secrets or copyright, trademark or patent rights; (ii) any claim or cause of action seeking emergency injunctive relief based on exigent circumstances (e.g., imminent danger or commission of a crime, hacking, cyber-attack); and (iii) a request for the remedy of public injunctive relief, where such remedies are permitted and cannot be waived by applicable law. In addition, to the extent your Claim qualifies under applicable law, you may elect to proceed in small claims court.

  9. Class Action Waiver. In addition to the above, YOU AND WE EACH AGREE THAT ANY PROCEEDING, WHETHER IN ARBITRATION OR IN COURT, WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. Neither you, nor any other customer, can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, consolidated or representative proceeding without having complied with the opt-out procedure set forth above.

    Upon motion of one or more interested parties, and after providing all other interested parties an opportunity to be heard, the arbitrator may, at their discretion, coordinate more than one arbitration proceeding initiated under this arbitration agreement, in order to promote efficiency in discovery and to avoid inconsistent legal rulings. In the interest of clarity, any coordination under the preceding sentence will be limited only to currently-pending arbitrations initiated under this arbitration agreement, and the arbitrator may not preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. All parties will retain the right to request an individualized hearing.

    If a court or arbitrator determines, in an action between you and us, that this class action waiver is unenforceable, this arbitration agreement will not apply to you. If you opt out of the arbitration agreement as specified above, this class action waiver will not apply to you. Neither you, nor any other customer, can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, consolidated or representative proceeding without having complied with the opt-out procedure set forth above.

    Jury Waiver. IF FOR ANY REASON A CLAIM PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN THROUGH ARBITRATION, YOU AND WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
