18. Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver
A. Mandatory Arbitration. YOU AND TRUSTED CONSULTING GROUP, LLC AGREE TO SUBMIT ANY AND ALL DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES (each, a “Dispute”) 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”). You and Trusted Consulting Group, LLC waive the right to a trial by jury and any right to have a Dispute heard in court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, both you and Trusted Consulting Group, LLC retain the right to bring an individual action in small claims court (if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis) and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of either party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights.
In arbitration, Disputes are resolved by a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, discovery is more limited than in court, and the arbitrator's decision is subject to limited review by courts. The arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court, including monetary damages, injunctive relief, and declaratory relief. Judgment on the arbitrator's award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. A single arbitrator with the American Arbitration Association ("AAA“) will conduct the arbitration, and the award may not exceed the relief allowed by applicable law. The arbitration will be conducted in the county of your residence or another mutually agreed location, provided that if the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or Trusted Consulting Group, LLC may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election will be binding on you and Trusted Consulting Group, LLC, subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. In cases where an in-person hearing is held, you or Trusted Consulting Group, LLC may attend by telephone, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise. The AAA's Consumer Arbitration Rules will apply. If AAA will not apply those rules, then AAA's Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. The AAA's rules and a form that can be used to initiate arbitration proceedings are available at https://www.adr.org/. You and Trusted Consulting Group, LLC agree that if for any reason AAA will not conduct or becomes unavailable to conduct the arbitration, then a court may appoint a substitute arbitrator, and further agree that the choice of AAA as a forum is not integral to the Arbitration Agreement.
The arbitrator will decide all issues relating to the enforceability, interpretation, scope, and application of this Arbitration Agreement (including “gateway” issues of arbitrability, whether the Arbitration Agreement is unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration), and these Terms, except that a court will resolve any question regarding the validity or enforceability of the class action waiver set forth in Section B of this Arbitration Agreement. The term "Dispute“ and the requirement to arbitrate will be broadly interpreted.
B. Arbitration Class Action Waiver. You and Trusted Consulting Group, LLC agree that the arbitration will be conducted solely on an individual basis and not on a class, representative, consolidated, or private attorney general basis. A Dispute may not be consolidated with a claim brought or discovery by any person or entity that is not a party to the arbitration proceeding. The arbitrator may not award relief to any person or entity other than a party to the arbitration proceeding and may only award such relief as is necessary to provide relief to a party to the arbitration proceeding. If a court deems any portion of this Section B invalid or unenforceable, then Sections A and C of this Arbitration Agreement will be null and void.
C. Fees and Costs in Arbitration. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules.
D. Non-Arbitration Class Action and Jury Waiver. You and Trusted Consulting Group, LLC agree that if for any reason a Dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration: (1) you and Trusted Consulting Group, LLC waive any right to a jury trial; (2) the Dispute will proceed solely on an individual, non-class, non-representative basis; and (3) neither you nor Trusted Consulting Group, LLC may be a class representative or class member or otherwise participate in any class, representative, consolidated, or private attorney general proceeding.
E. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THIS SECTION, YOU MAY CHOOSE TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM IN COURT AND NOT BY ARBITRATION IF YOU OPT OUT OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE EARLIER OF: (1) THE DATE YOU ACCEPT THESE TERMS, OR (2) THE DATE YOU FIRST AGREED OR ASSENTED TO AN AGREEMENT WITH TRUSTED CONSULTING GROUP, LLC THAT CONTAINED AN ARBITRATION PROVISION. The opt-out notice must be postmarked no later than the applicable deadline and mailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The opt-out notice must state that you do not agree to this Arbitration Agreement and must include your name, address, phone number and email address. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, and failure to comply strictly with this procedure and the applicable deadline automatically will render the opt-out notice null and void. If you opt out of the arbitration provision, all other parts of this Arbitration Agreement will continue to apply.
All notices in connection with these Terms will be given by regular mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested), courier or overnight delivery service or email.
