Arbitration and Governing Law:
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to AIDANCE at 184 Burnside Avenue, Woonsocket, Rhode Island 02895. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $5,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claim is without merit. AIDANCE will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claim is frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the State of Rhode Island or at another mutually agreed location.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
If the application of any provision hereof or any portion thereof to either you or AIDANCE, shall be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, then (i) such provision shall be reformed without further action by either you or AIDANCE to the extent strictly necessary to render such provision valid and enforceable when applied to you, AIDANCE, or the particular facts or circumstances; and (ii) the validity and enforceability of such provision as applied to the other party or the particular facts or circumstances, and the validity and enforceability of all of the other provisions hereof, shall remain in full force and effect.
Neither you nor AIDANCE shall be deemed by any act, delay, or omission to have waived any of your/its respective rights or remedies hereunder unless such waiver is in writing and signed by the waiving party, and only to the extent specifically set forth in said writing. A waiver, failure or delay in exercising any right, power or privilege, or any single or partial exercise of any right, power or privilege, will not act to preclude any subsequent or further exercise of that or any other right, power or privilege.
