16. Legal Disputes
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND WILL HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL IMPACT ON HOW CLAIMS YOU AND THE COLLECTOR CAR NETWORK, LLC AGAINST EACH OTHER ARE RESOLVED.
You and The Collector Car Network, LLC agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen, or may arise, between you and The Collector Car Network, LLC (including any claim or dispute between you and a third-party agent of The Collector Car Network, LLC) that relates in any way to or arises out of this or previous versions of this User Agreement, your use of or access to the Services, the actions of The Collector Car Network, LLC or its agents, or any products or services sold or purchased through the Services, will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Legal Disputes Section.
You agree that, except to the extent inconsistent with or preempted by federal law, the laws of the State of Arizona, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern this User Agreement and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and The Collector Car Network, LLC, except as otherwise stated in this User Agreement.
Agreement to Arbitrate
You and The Collector Car Network, LLC each agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen, or may arise, between you and The Collector Car Network, LLC (including any disputes or claims between you and a third-party agent of The Collector Car Network, LLC) that relate in any way to or arise out of this or previous versions of the User Agreement, your use of or access to the Services, the actions of The Collector Car Network, LLC or its agents, or any products or services sold, offered, or purchased through the Services shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court. Alternatively, you may assert your claims 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. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate.
Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief
YOU AND THE COLLECTOR CAR NETWORK, LLC AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, OR REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND THE COLLECTOR CAR NETWORK, LLC AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER USERS. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph's limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court, subject to your and The Collector Car Network, LLCs’ right to appeal the court's decision. All other claims will be arbitrated.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. An arbitrator should apply the terms of the User Agreement as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to arbitrability, the scope or enforceability of this Agreement to Arbitrate, or the interpretation of Section 1 of this Agreement to Arbitrate ("Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief"), shall be for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its rules and procedures, including the AAA's Consumer Arbitration Rules (as applicable), as modified by this Agreement to Arbitrate. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The use of the word "arbitrator" in this provision shall not be construed to prohibit more than one arbitrator from presiding over an arbitration; rather, the AAA's rules will govern the number of arbitrators that may preside over an arbitration conducted under this Agreement to Arbitrate.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a notice of the dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to The Collector Car Network, LLC should be sent to 1345 East Chandler Blvd Ste 101, Phoenix, AZ 85048 and by email to [email protected]. The Collector Car Network, LLC will send any Notice to you to the physical address we have on file associated with your Collector Car Network, LLC account; it is your responsibility to keep your physical address up to date. All information called for in the Notice must be provided, including a description of the nature and basis of the claims the party is asserting and the relief sought. If you and The Collector Car Network, LLC are unable to resolve the claims described in the Notice within 30 days after the Notice is sent, you or Collector Car Network, LLC may initiate arbitration proceedings.
A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA's site at www.adr.org. In addition to filing this form with the AAA in accordance with its rules and procedures, the party initiating the arbitration must mail a copy of the completed form to the opposing party. You may send a copy to The Collector Car Network, LLC at the following address: 1345 East Chandler Blvd Ste 101, Phoenix, AZ 85048 and by email to [email protected].
