Initial Dispute Resolution
Bettor Vision’s customer support team is available to address any concerns you may have regarding the Platform and can resolve most concerns quickly to our users’ satisfaction. You and Bettor Vision (the “Parties”) shall use their best efforts through this initial dispute resolution process to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement and engage in good faith negotiations, which shall be a condition to either Party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration. Failure to engage in this process could result in the award of fees against you in arbitration.
To adequately engage in initial dispute resolution, each Party must notify the other Party, in writing, of the facts of the dispute and all damages claimed. Such a writing must be sent to (a) the user’s email address on file with Bettor Vision, or (b) Bettor Vision Inc., 251 Little Falls Drive, Wilmington DE 19808, or (c) email@example.com, whichever is applicable (“Dispute Notification”). The Party receiving the Dispute Notification has thirty (30) days from receipt of the Dispute Notification to respond. The other Party then has fifteen (15) days to reply to the response.
If the Parties do not reach an agreed-upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution begins under the Subsection 19.1, then either Party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve claims, subject to the terms set forth below. This agreement to arbitrate is a contract governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1, et seq.,and evidences a transaction involving commerce. Specifically, all claims arising out of or relating to these Terms (including their formation, performance, and breach), the Parties’ relationship with each other, and/or your use of the Platform shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by JAMS in accordance with the provisions of its Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class or representative actions and except that each Party will be permitted at least one deposition unless forbidden by JAMS. If for any reason JAMS is unable to administer arbitration, either Party may apply to a court to appoint an arbitrator pursuant to 9 U.S.C. § 5.
Except as explicitly set forth in this Subsection 19.2, the arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of these Terms are void or voidable, whether a claim is subject to arbitration, and any dispute regarding the payment of JAMS administrative or arbitrator fees (including the timing of such payments and remedies for nonpayment). The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator shall also be empowered to consolidate claims raised between the same parties to a single arbitration proceeding. The Parties agree that the arbitrator may allow the filing of dispositive motions if they are likely to efficiently resolve or narrow issues in dispute. The arbitrator’s award shall be written and binding on the Parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. No arbitration award or decision will have any preclusive effect as to issues or claims in any dispute with anyone who is nota named party to the arbitration.
The Streamlined Arbitration Rules governing the arbitration may be accessed at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at (800) 352-5267. If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, you will be required to pay $250 to initiate the arbitration. To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, the arbitrator may require Bettor Vision to pay the additional cost. You are responsible for your own attorneys’ fees unless the arbitration rules and/or applicable law provide otherwise. If the arbitrator finds the arbitration to be non-frivolous, Bettor Vision will pay the remaining filing and arbitrator fees for the arbitration, provided your claim does not exceed $75,000. For claims above $75,000, fees and costs will be determined in accordance with applicable JAMS rules. The arbitration rules permit you to recover attorney’s fees in certain cases.
Any arbitration demand or counterclaim asserted by either Party must contain sufficient information to provide fair notice to the other Party of the asserting Party’s identity, the claims being asserted, and the factual allegations on which they are based. The arbitrator and/or JAMS may require amendment of any demand or counterclaim that does not satisfy these requirements.The arbitrator has the right to impose sanctions in accordance with JAMS Rule 24 for any claims the arbitrator determines to be frivolous or improper (under the standard set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11).
The Parties agree that JAMS has discretion to modify the amount or timing of any administrative or arbitration fees due under JAMS’s Rules where it deems appropriate, provided that such modification does not increase the costs to you, and you waive any objection to such fee modification. The Parties also agree that a good-faith challenge by either Party to the fees imposed by JAMS does not constitute a default, waiver, or breach of this Section 19 while such challenge remains pending before JAMS, the arbitrator, and/or a court of competent jurisdiction. The Parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
If you area resident of the United States, arbitration will take place at any reasonable location within the United States convenient for you. You and Bettor Vision agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any federal or state court in New Castle, Delaware, 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.
Class Action Waiver
The Parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND BETTOR VISION AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Notwithstanding any other provision of these terms, disputes regarding the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of the Class Action Waiver maybe resolved only by a court and not by an arbitrator. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular remedy, then that remedy (and only that remedy) must be severed from the arbitration and may be sought in court. The Parties agree, however, that any adjudication of remedies not subject to arbitration shall be stayed pending the outcome of any arbitrable claims and remedies.
Exception - Litigation of Intellectual Property and Small Claims Court Claims
Notwithstanding the Parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either Party may bring an action in state or federal court to protect its intellectual property rights (“intellectual property rights” means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights). Either Party may also elect to have disputes or claims resolved in a small claims court that are within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction. Either Party may also seek a declaratory judgment or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction regarding whether a Party’s claims are time-barred or may be brought in small claims court in your state and county of residence. Seeking such relief shall not waive a Party’s right to arbitration under this agreement.
30-Day Right to Opt Out
You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of your first use of the Platform; otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those paragraphs. If you opt out of these arbitration provisions, Bettor Vision also will not be bound by them.
Changes to this Section
Bettor Vision will provide thirty (30) days’ notice of any changes affecting the substance of this Section 19. Changes will become effective on the thirtieth (30th) day. If you continue to use the Platform after the thirtieth (30th) day, you agree that any unfiled claims of which Bettor Vision does not have actual notice are subject to the revised clause.
For any dispute not subject to arbitration or under the jurisdiction of a small claims court, you and Bettor Vision agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of any venue in the federal and state courts located in New Castle, Delaware. You further agree to accept service of process by mail, and hereby waive any and all jurisdictional and venue defenses otherwise available.
These Terms and the relationship between you and Bettor Vision shall be governed by the laws of the state of Delaware without regard to conflict of law provisions.
There is no joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship created between you and us as a result of these Terms or use of the Platform.
If any provision(s) of the Terms is held by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, then such provision(s) shall be construed, as nearly as possible, to reflect the intentions of the parties and the other provisions shall remain in full force and effect. Bettor Vision’s failure to exercise or enforce any of the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of Bettor Vision’s right to exercise or enforce the Terms as to the same or another instance.
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to the use of the Platform or the Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. This statute of limitations provision does not apply to residents of New Jersey.
You agree that Bettor Vision’s may assign the Terms to any other entity of its choosing, with or without notice to you. You may not assign the Terms to any other party for any reason, including, but not limited to, because your interaction with other users of the Platform, the pricing offered, and fraud mechanisms in place are based upon individual usage.
You agree that, except as otherwise expressly provided in these Terms, there shall be no third-party beneficiaries to these Terms.
