16.0 ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
16.1 This Arbitration Agreement facilitates the prompt and efficient resolution of any disputes that may arise between you and us. Arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution in which parties to a contract agree to submit their disputes and potential disputes to a neutral third person (called an arbitrator) for a binding decision, instead of having such dispute(s) decided in a lawsuit by a judge or jury.
Please read this Arbitration Agreement carefully. It provides that all disputes between you and us shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court. In the absence of this arbitration agreement, you may otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring claims in a court of law, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate in or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including, but not limited to, class actions). Entering into this Arbitration Agreement constitutes a waiver of your right to litigate claims in court and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow this Arbitration Agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney’s fees).
For the purpose of this Arbitration Agreement, "us" means FreeCast and its parents, subsidiaries, and affiliated companies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents. The term "Dispute" means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and us arising out of or in any way related to your relationship with us, 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 or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Arbitration Agreement (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). "Dispute" is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced.
THE PARTIES AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, EACH PARTY IS WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. THE PARTIES AGREE THIS AGREEMENT IS SUBJECT TO AND GOVERNED BY THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT (“FAA”).
Nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (a) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (b) seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration; or (c) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
16.2 Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution
Before initiating any Dispute, you must first give us an opportunity to resolve the Dispute by emailing written notification to firstname.lastname@example.org. That written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, (3) a description of the Dispute, and (4) a description of the specific relief you seek. If after a good faith effort to negotiate one of us feels the dispute has not and cannot be resolved informally, the party intending to pursue arbitration agrees to notify the other party via email prior to initiating the arbitration.
16.3 Arbitration Procedures
If the Dispute is not resolved as provided above in the Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution section, either you or we may initiate arbitration proceedings. The American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), www.adr.org, or JAMS, www.jamsadr.com, will arbitrate all Disputes, and the arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator under the applicable consumer rules.
16.4 Arbitration Award
The arbitrator may award any relief that would be available pursuant to applicable law. 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. Such award by the arbitrator will be final and binding on the parties, except as provided by applicable law, including but not limited to the FAA, and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement.
If any clause within this Arbitration Agreement, other than the Class Action Waiver clause above, is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Arbitration Agreement, and the remainder of this Arbitration Agreement will be given full force and effect.
This Arbitration Agreement shall survive the termination of your contract with us and your use of the FreeCast website and products and MediaPay Services.
If you do not wish to resolve Disputes by binding arbitration, you may opt out of the provisions of this Section 16.0 within 30 days after the date that you agree to these Terms by emailing us at email@example.com. In order to be effective, the email must specify: your full legal name, the email address associated with your account on the MediaPay Service, and a statement that you wish to opt out of arbitration (“Opt-Out Notice”). Once we receive your Opt-Out Notice, this Section 16.0 will be void and you are agreeing that any Dispute arising out of these Terms will be resolved in a court of law. The remaining provisions of these Terms will not be affected by your Opt-Out Notice.
If we makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to our address for Notice of Arbitration, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to our address for Notice of Arbitration, in which case your account with us will be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected will survive.
