Agreement to Arbitrate
YOU AND QUEEN CITY MUTUALLY AGREE TO WAIVE OUR RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES IN A COURT OF LAW BY A JUDGE OR JURY AND AGREE TO RESOLVE ANY CLAIM OR DISPUTE AGAINST EACH OTHER ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS IN ARBITRATION. This will prohibit you from bringing any class, collective, or consolidated action against Queen City, and will also prohibit you from participating in or recovering relief under any current or future such actions brought against Queen City by someone else. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court: there is no judge or jury in arbitration; discovery in arbitration may be more limited than discovery in litigation; and court review of an arbitration award is limited.
This agreement to arbitrate (“Arbitration Agreement”) also applies to claims between you and Queen City’s Third-Party Providers, and such Third-Party Providers will be considered intended third party beneficiaries of this Arbitration Agreement.
You and Queen City agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy, whether based on past, present or future events, arising out of or relating to: this Agreement and prior versions thereof (including the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof); the Queen City Services and website; Content currently or previously available on or through the Queen City Services and website; any Products currently or previously available on the Queen City website; your relationship with Queen City; your User Data; the threatened or actual suspension, deactivation, or termination of your Account or this Agreement; payments made by you or any payments made or allegedly owed to you; any Promotions, referral benefits, or other offers; and any other federal and state statutory and common law claims (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights. All disputes concerning the arbitrability of a Dispute (including disputes about the scope, applicability, enforceability, legality, revocability, or validity of the Arbitration Agreement) will be decided by the arbitrator, except as expressly provided herein.
YOU UNDERSTAND, ACKNOWLEDGE, AND AGREE THAT YOU AND QUEEN CITY ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT OR HAVE A JURY TRIAL FOR ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
Prohibition of Class Actions And Non-individualized Relief
You acknowledge and agree that you and Queen City are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class in any purported class, collective, or consolidated proceeding. Further, unless both you and Queen City otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class, collective, consolidated or representative proceeding.
Arbitration Rules and Governing Law
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this Agreement. The AAA Rules are available at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879 or any subsequent applicable telephone number. The Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. It is your and Queen City’s intent that the FAA and AAA Rules will preempt all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA and AAA Rules are found to not apply to any issue that arises under this Arbitration Agreement or the enforcement thereof, then that issue will be resolved under the laws of the State of Delaware. This Agreement governs to the extent it conflicts with the AAA Rules or FAA.
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand f
