II. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
A. INFORMAL DISPUTE RESOLUTION
At KONG, we believe every workout and every athlete matters. Our goal is to do our best to ensure that every experience with KONG will exceed your expectations. If that doesn't happen, we hope you will give us the opportunity to try to address any problem. To do that, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at Kong CrossFit, 68 Wall Street, Norwalk, CT 06850, Attention: Kong CrossFit Feedback. Please include: (1) your name, (2) your address, (3) a description of your concerns, and (4) a description of the specific relief you seek.
B. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
By accepting the Terms, you and KONG agree to submit any and all Disputes (as defined below) to binding arbitration pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act (Title 9 of the United States Code), which shall govern the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration agreement ("Arbitration Agreement"). Arbitration shall be before either (1) JAMS (formerly known as Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services), www.jamsadr.com, or (2) the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), www.adr.org. If you initiate arbitration, you shall have the choice as between these two arbitration forums; if KONG initiates arbitration, it shall have the choice as between these two arbitration forums.
WE EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THE DEFINITION OF DISPUTES BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES WHICH ARISE AFTER YOU ENTER INTO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT BY A JUDGE OR JURY, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
C. CLASS ACTION WAIVER
You agree that the arbitration of any Dispute (as defined below) shall be conducted on an individual, not a class-wide basis, and that no such arbitration proceedings may be consolidated with any other arbitration or other legal proceedings involving KONG or any other person. You further agree that you, and anyone asserting a claim through you, will not be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, representative, or consolidated proceeding against KONG. We and you agree that the arbitrator of any Dispute between us may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claim (such as a class action, representative action, consolidated action or private attorney general action).
If this class action waiver ("Class Action Waiver") clause or any portion thereof is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then the Arbitration Agreement will be unenforceable, and the Dispute will be decided by a court. Any claim that all or part of the Class Action Waiver is invalid, unenforceable, unconscionable, void or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator.
D. DEFINITION OF DISPUTE
Except as described below, the term "Dispute" in this Arbitration Agreement and the Class Action Waiver means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and KONG regarding any aspect of your relationship with KONG, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, negligence, gross negligence or reckless behavior), or any other legal, statutory or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of the Terms except for the scope, enforceability and interpretation of this Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver.
Dispute SHALL NOT include personal injury claims or claims for lost, stolen, or damaged property.
Dispute also SHALL NOT include; (1) claims that all or part of the Class Action Waiver is invalid, unenforceable, unconscionable, void or voidable; and (2) any claim for public injunctive relief, i.e., injunctive relief that has the primary purpose and effect of prohibiting alleged unlawful acts that threaten future injury to the general public. Such claims may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator.
E. HOW WILL THE ARBITRATION WORK?
Either you or KONG may initiate arbitration proceedings. The arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator. The arbitration will be an individual arbitration, and shall in no event be commenced as a representative or class arbitration.
If you or KONG initiate arbitration, you and we have a choice of doing so before JAMS or the AAA:
For arbitration before JAMS, the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures and the JAMS Recommended Arbitration Discovery Protocols For Domestic, Commercial Cases will apply. The JAMS rules are available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-5267.
Which particular rules apply in AAA arbitration will depend on how much money is at issue. For less than $75,000, the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes/Consumer Arbitration Rules will apply; for Disputes involving $75,000 or more, the AAA's Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879.
As set forth in the section of these Terms regarding Choice of Law, the arbitrator shall apply Connecticut law.
If required for the enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement under the Federal Arbitration Act, KONG will pay all arbitrator's costs and expenses. If not, those costs will be paid as specified in the above-referenced rules.
F. WHERE WILL THE ARBITRATION BE HELD?
You can bring the arbitration in either Connecticut or in the state where you live if there is a JAMS or AAA in that state. In the event that KONG initiates an arbitration, it will only do so in the state where you live before either JAMS or AAA, unless there is no JAMS or AAA in your state, in which case KONG may initiate the arbitration in Connecticut.
