MANDATORY Dispute Resolution: Arbitration
We believe we will be able to resolve most disputes or issues you may have using our sites and services in a satisfactory matter. In the unlikely event we are not able to resolve a dispute or issue, you agree to the following resolution process.
You first agree to discuss the matter informally with us for at least 30 days. To do that, please send your full name and contact information, your concern and your proposed solution by mail to us at: Best Legal Counsel, 175 S. Main, Ste. 500, Salt Lake City, UT, 84111
You agree to arbitrate with us only in your individual capacity, not as a representative or member of a class. As such, your claims may not be joined with any other claims and there will be no authority for any dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or brought by a purported class representative.
You agree that arbitration will be exclusively held in Salt Lake County, Utah and that each party will be responsible for its own costs, including paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules. In order to select an arbitrator, each party agrees to provide a list of two available arbitrators that have experience with the subject matter. Each party may strike one of the names on the other’s list. The parties will select an arbitrator out of the remaining two arbitrator names. If the parties cannot mutually agree on one arbitrator, JAMS will choose the arbitrator randomly from the two remaining arbitrators. It is important that you understand that the arbitrator’s decision will be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. If you’re not sure what all of this means, of course please feel free to ask an attorney.
Lastly, please read this section carefully, as it affects your rights. You may only bring individual claims. Under NO circumstances are you allowed to bring claim as a member of a class. Class action lawsuits, class-wide arbitrations, private attorney-general actions, and any other proceedings where someone acts in a representative capacity are not allowed.
