Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration Provision.
- Definitions. As used in this section ("Arbitration Provision"), the terms "i.am+", "we", "us", and "our" refer to i.am+, including its subsidiaries and agents; the terms "you" and "your" refer to you as an individual as well as other individuals you allow to access or use the i.am+ Software, and any legal entity you control, work for, or represent when you access or use the i.am+ Software. The term "Claims" means all claims, disputes, or controversies between you and i.am+ of any nature or kind, whether pre-existing, present, or future, that arise from or relate to the i.am+ Software. This includes but is not limited to disagreements about the validity, enforceability, or scope of this Arbitration Provision.
- Informal Efforts to Resolve Dispute. If a dispute arises between you and i.am+, you should first attempt to resolve it by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending the details of your complaint, including your contact information for a response, to the address or fax number listed below. We will attempt in good faith to resolve all Claims submitted this way within thirty (30) days of receipt.
- Agreement to Arbitrate; Right to Opt Out. If informal efforts to resolve Claims fail, you agree that any and all Claims will be resolved exclusively by binding arbitration as described herein, except that: (i) you may assert Claims in a small claims court in the United States if your Claims meet the court’s jurisdictional requirements; and (ii) either party may pursue Claims and relief in a court of competent jurisdiction regarding the validity and/or infringement of a party’s intellectual property rights.
- ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS AND PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED.
- IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION, YOU MUST NOTIFY US IN WRITING WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT YOU FIRST ACCEPT OR HAVE ACCESS TO THIS AGREEMENT BY MAILING OR FAXING AN OPT-OUT REQUEST TO email@example.com OR TO THE ADDRESS OR FAX NUMBER LISTED BELOW.

IF YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY NOTIFIED US OF YOUR DECISION TO OPT OUT OF ARBITRATION, YOU DO NOT NEED TO DO SO AGAIN.
- Arbitration Fees. The allocation and payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS’ rules which limit the amount a consumer is required to pay. If the arbitrator determines that your Claims are not frivolous applying the standards of the applicable law, we agree to reimburse you the amount of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees you are required to pay for the arbitration.
- Arbitration Rules. The arbitration will be conducted by the JAMS ("JAMS") under its rules if you are a resident of the United States; if your use of the i.am+ Software has been principally for personal or household use, the JAMS' procedures for consumer-related disputes including the minimum fairness standards will also apply. If you are a resident of a country other than the United States, the arbitration will be conducted by the JAMS in the County of Los Angeles, State of California, under its rules for international arbitration, and you and we agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. In the event of a conflict or inconsistency between the applicable arbitration rules and this Arbitration Provision, this Arbitration Provision shall govern and control.
- The arbitration will be conducted in the English language by a single arbitrator who is an attorney-at-law with at least fifteen years’ experience in consumer and technology transactions and who is also a member of the JAMS roster of arbitrators. If you and we can’t agree on a mutually acceptable arbitrator within fifteen (15) days after the arbitration is initiated, then JAMS will select a neutral arbitrator who meets the qualifications. The JAMS rules are available at http://www.jamsadr.com, or by calling 1- 800 – 352- 5267 from inside the United States or +44 207 583 9808 from outside the United States.
- Initiating Arbitration. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must follow the procedures specified by the applicable JAMS rules as described on their website at: http://www.jamsadr.com.
- Time Restriction. PLEASE NOTE YOU MUST FILE A COMPLAINT WITH JAMS OR A PERMITTED COURT WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR OF THE DATE OF THE OCCURRENCE OF THE EVENT OR FACTS GIVING RISE TO A CLAIM, OR YOU WAIVE THE RIGHT TO PURSUE ANY CLAIM BASED UPON SUCH EVENT, FACTS OR DISPUTE.
- Arbitration Process. Arbitration under this Arbitration Provision shall not require any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless mutually agreed. Either or both parties may participate by written submissions, telephone calls, or other means of remote communication as allowed by the arbitrator. The arbitration proceedings will be conducted in the English language at a location designated by the JAMS that is the most convenient for you.
- The arbitration can only decide Claim(s) between you and us, and may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons that may have similar claims. There shall be no pre-arbitration discovery except as provided for in the applicable JAMS rules. The arbitrator will honor claims of privilege recognized by law and will take reasonable steps to protect customer account information and other confidential or proprietary information.
- Law. In conducting the arbitration proceeding, the arbitrator will apply the law of the State of California, without regard to its conflicts of law provisions. At the request of any party, the arbitrator shall provide a brief written explanation of the basis for the decision and award. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitrator’s decision will be final and binding on the parties except for any right to appeal under the JAMS rules or the applicable law.
- Confidentiality. You and us shall keep confidential any information exchanged during the arbitration as well as the decision of the arbitrator made with respect to any Claim(s) arbitrated under this Arbitration Provision and, with the exception of disclosure to your or our attorneys, accountants, auditors, and other legal or financial advisors, neither party shall disclose such information or decision to any other person unless required to do so by law.
- Continuing Obligation to Arbitrate; Severability. This Arbitration Provision shall survive termination of your access to or use of any i.am+ Software and related agreements. If any portion of this Arbitration Provision is deemed invalid or unenforceable at law, such invalid or unenforceable provision will be interpreted, construed or reformed to the extent required to make it valid and enforceable, and this shall not invalidate the remaining portions of this Arbitration Provision.
