Section 20 – Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH KIVA AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
Except for any disputes, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, demands or proceedings (collectively, “Disputes”) arising in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and KIVA agree (a) to waive your and KIVA’s respective rights to have any and all Disputes arising from or related to these Terms, or the Services, content or Products, resolved in a court, and (b) to waive your and KIVA’s respective rights to a jury trial. Instead, you and KIVA agree to arbitrate Disputes through binding arbitration (which is the referral of a Dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the Dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it instead of having the Dispute decided by a judge or jury in court).
No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions: You and KIVA agree that any Dispute arising out of or related to these Terms, the Services or Products sold on the Services is personal to you and KIVA and that such Dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action, or any other type of representative proceeding.
Notice; Informal Dispute Resolution
You and KIVA agree that each party will notify the other party in writing of any arbitrable or small claims Dispute within thirty (30) days of the date it arises, so that the parties can attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute informally. Notice to KIVA shall be sent by certified mail or courier to Kiva Brands, Inc., Attn: General Counsel, 2300 North Loop Drive, Alameda, CA 94502. Your notice must include (a) your name, postal address, telephone number, the email address you use or used for your KIVA account and, if different, an email address at which you can be contacted, (b) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute, and (c) the specific relief that you are seeking. Our notice to you will be sent electronically. If you and KIVA cannot agree how to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after the date notice is received by the applicable party, then either you or KIVA may, as appropriate and in accordance with this Section, commence an arbitration proceeding or, to the extent specifically provided for above, file a claim in court.
EXCEPT FOR DISPUTES IN WHICH EITHER PARTY SEEKS TO BRING AN INDIVIDUAL ACTION IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT OR SEEKS INJUNCTIVE OR OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF FOR THE ALLEGED UNLAWFUL USE OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, YOU AND KIVA AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRABLE DISPUTE MUST BE COMMENCED OR FILED BY YOU OR KIVA WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR OF THE DATE THE DISPUTE AROSE, OTHERWISE THE UNDERLYING CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED (WHICH MEANS THAT YOU AND KIVA WILL NO LONGER HAVE THE RIGHT TO ASSERT SUCH CLAIM REGARDING THE DISPUTE).
You and KIVA agree that any arbitration will be conducted confidentially in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. ("JAMS") then in effect, by one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving commercial contract disputes, who shall be selected from the appropriate list of JAMS arbitrators in accordance with such Rules. Judgment upon the award rendered by such arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state or federal courts located in, respectively, San Francisco County, California, or the Northern District of California.
As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the applicable JAMS rules, the arbitrator will have (a) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute, including the determination of whether a Dispute is arbitrable, and (b) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms.
You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the Terms by writing to: Kiva Brands, Inc., Attn: Legal Department, 2300 North Loop Drive, Alameda, CA 94502. The opt out notice must include your full name and email address and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration.
Section 21 - Choice of Law and Venue
These Terms and your relationship with KIVA are governed by and will be construed under the laws of the State of California, without regard to the conflicts of laws provisions thereof. Any dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter of these Terms or to your relationship with KIVA shall be finally settled in San Francisco County, California, in English. You and KIVA agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section shall be both substantively and procedurally governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
Section 22 - Miscellaneous
The failure of either you or KIVA to exercise, in any way, any right herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
