Disputes, Binding and Confidential Arbitration, and Waiver Of Class Actions and Class Arbitrations
AS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION, INSTEAD OF SUING IN COURT, WE EACH AGREE TO SETTLE DISPUTES (EXCEPT CERTAIN SMALL CLAIMS) ONLY BY ARBITRATION. BY USING THE SITE AND AGREEING TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU ARE AGREEING TO WAIVE AND ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO SUE TOUCAN SOCKS IN COURT AND YOUR RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY. YOU AND TOUCAN SOCKS EACH AGREE THAT DISPUTES WILL BE ARBITRATED. THE RULES IN ARBITRATION ARE DIFFERENT. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY, AND REVIEW IS LIMITED, BUT AN ARBITRATOR CAN AWARD THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF, AND MUST HONOR THE SAME LIMITATIONS STATED IN THE AGREEMENT AS A COURT WOULD.
AGREEMENT TO PRE-ARBITRATION NOTIFICATION
These Terms of Service provide for final, binding arbitration of all disputed claims (discussed immediately below). Toucan Socks and you agree, however, that it would be advantageous to discuss and hopefully resolve any disputes before arbitration proceedings or any other proceedings authorized herein are initiated. In the event of a dispute, the claimant whether you or Toucan Socks shall send a letter to the other side briefly summarizing the claim and the request for relief. If Toucan Socks is the claimant, the letter shall be sent, via email, to the email account listed in your Account. If the dispute is not resolved within 60 days after the letter is sent, the claimant may proceed to initiate arbitration proceedings or any other proceedings authorized herein.
AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE CLAIMS
Except to the limited extent noted below, use of the Toucan Socks Services, membership in the Toucan Socks Membership Program, any purchases made through the Toucan Socks Services, and any controversy, claim or dispute arising out of or relating in any way to your use of the Toucan Socks Services, your membership in or purchases through the Toucan Socks Membership Program, or products purchased through the Toucan Socks Services shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration between you and Toucan Socks.
The arbitration shall take place in Alexandria, Virginia in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures of the American Arbitration Association. Unless either party or the arbitrator requests a hearing, the parties will submit their arguments and evidence to the arbitrator in writing. The arbitrator will make an award based only on the documents. This is called a Desk Arbitration. If any party makes a written request for a hearing within ten days after the American Arbitration Association acknowledges receipt of a claimant’s demand for arbitration (or the arbitrator requests a hearing), the parties shall participate in a telephone hearing. In no event shall the parties be required to travel to Alexandria, Virginia to participate in the arbitration.
If you decide to commence arbitration, the provider will require to you to pay a filing fee (which currently is $125 or more for claims under $10,000).
This arbitration agreement is subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and is enforceable pursuant to its terms on a self-executing basis. Either party may seek enforcement of this provision in any court of competent jurisdiction.
The arbitrator shall determine any and all challenges to the arbitrarily of a claim. The arbitral award shall be judicially enforceable. Any court of competent jurisdiction may, and upon request shall, enter judgment on the arbitral award. Either party may seek confirmation (judgment on the award) and/or enforcement in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Notwithstanding any provision in the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures to the contrary, and with the exception of Desk Arbitrations, the Federal Rules of Evidence shall govern the admissibility of evidence in any arbitral proceeding.
Both you and Toucan Socks waive the right to bring any claim covered by this dispute resolution provision as a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action, or to participate in a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action regarding any claim covered by this dispute resolution provision brought by anyone else.
Notwithstanding any provision in the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures to the contrary, the arbitrator shall not have the authority or any jurisdiction to hear the arbitration as a class, consolidated, representative, or private attorney general action or to consolidate, join, or otherwise combine the claims of different persons into one proceeding.
Amendments to this Section. Notwithstanding any provision in this section to the contrary, you and Toucan Socks agree that if Toucan Socks makes any future amendments to the dispute resolution procedure and class action waiver provisions set forth in this section (other than a change to the parties’ addresses), Toucan Socks will post notice of such amendments on the Site and Application and you will have thirty (30) days from your first visit to, or use of, the Site or Application containing such amendments to affirmatively opt-out of any such amendments. If you affirmatively opt-out of any future amendments, you agree you will arbitrate any Dispute between us in accordance with the language of this section as stated in this current section, without any of the proposed amendments governing. If you do not affirmatively opt-out of any future amendments, you will be deemed to have consented to such future amendments.
Severability. If any provision of this section is found to be unenforceable, that provision will be severed with the remainder of this section and these Terms remaining in full force and effect. The foregoing will not apply to the prohibition against class or representative actions; if the prohibition against class or representative actions is found to be unenforceable, this entire section will be null and void. The terms of this section will otherwise survive any termination of these Terms.
If any part of these Terms and Conditions is held to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions.
These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between the parties relating to the subject matter herein. We may, at our sole discretion and without notice, revise these terms at any time by updating this posting.
