Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with VRESEARCHLAB and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
0. Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any Dispute (defined below) will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims in small claims court, if all the requirements of the small claims court, including any limitations on jurisdiction and the amount at issue in the Dispute, are satisfied and you agree to bring a Dispute in small claims court in Dade County, Florida, or, if you reside in the U.S., in a small claims court in your county of residence; and (2) you or VRESEARCHLAB may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents). This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all Disputes that arose or were asserted before the effective date of these Terms or any prior version of these Terms.
“Dispute” as used in this Section means any dispute, cause of action, claim, or controversy arising out of or in any way related to VRESEARCHLAB in connection with these Terms, the subject matter of these Terms, or access to and use of the Services, including but not limited to contract, personal injury, tort, warranty, statute or regulation, or other legal or equitable basis and disputes that involve third parties, except any dispute, cause of action, claim, or controversy relating to VRESEARCHLAB ‘sintellectual property (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and/or patents).
1. Arbitration Rules and Forum. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your Dispute to our registered agent: United States Corporation, Inc., 221 North Broad Street Suite 3A, Middletown, DE 19709. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other claims shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. JAMS’s rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, VRESEARCHLAB will pay them for you. In addition, VRESEARCHLAB will reimburse all such JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.
You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
2. Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (a) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement and (b) resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and VRESEARCHLAB. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any Dispute. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and these Terms (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.
3. Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND VRESEARCHLAB HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and VRESEARCHLAB are instead electing that all Disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 20.1 above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Arbitration Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
4. Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES BROUGHT AGAINST VRESEARCHLAB AND THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a given claim for relief, then the claim must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the State or Federal Courts located in Dade County, the State of Florida. All other claims shall be arbitrated.
5. 30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to firstname.lastname@example.org, within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your VRESEARCHLAB username (if any), the email address you used to set up your VRESEARCHLAB account, and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of these Terms will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.
6. Severability. If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
7. Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of these Terms or your relationship with VRESEARCHLAB.
8. Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, we agree that if VRESEARCHLAB makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, you may reject that change within thirty (30) days of such change becoming effective by sending an email to VRESEARCHLAB to email@example.com notifying VRESEARCHLAB clearly that you reject such term.
