PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT CONTAINS A BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. THIS MEANS THAT ANY DISPUTE(S) BETWEEN YOU AND FILMBOOK MUST BE RESOLVED IN ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN IN COURT BY A JUDGE AND/OR JURY. THIS ALSO MEANS THAT YOU AND FILMBOOK AGREE TO WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO PARTICIPATE IN OR BRING CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS RELATED TO ANY DISPUTE(S).
A. Arbitration of Disputes: You and Filmbook agree that any existing or future claim, dispute, or controversy (“Dispute”) arising out of or in any way related to the Site, Services or the App, the subject matter of these Terms, or your relationship with Filmbook, shall be submitted to the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) for final and binding arbitration in accordance with the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules, including its Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. As the only exceptions to this arbitration provision, you and Filmbook agree that (1) either Party shall have the right to file, in any court of competent jurisdiction, an application for temporary or preliminary injunctive relief in aid of arbitration or for the maintenance of the status quo or preservation of the Party’s rights pending arbitration; and (2) either party shall have the right to litigate in court any Dispute to the extent it arises under any federal statute or regulation that expressly precludes arbitration. You further understand that you have the right to challenge the validity of the arbitration provisions contained in these Terms on any ground that may exist in law and equity, and Filmbook may not take any retaliatory action against you in the event you choose to do so. In the event of a conflict between the provisions of these Terms and the AAA’s rules, the provisions of these Terms shall control.
B. Class Action Waiver: The Parties agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, neither you nor Filmbook shall have a right to (a) arbitrate or litigate in any forum any Dispute on a class action, collective action, or representative action basis; (b) to serve as a representative or participate as a member of any class action, collective action, or representative action pertaining to any Dispute in any forum; (c) to litigate any Dispute in court except as expressly provided above; or (d) to have a jury trial for any Dispute. Rather, the Parties agree that any proceeding between Filmbook and you concerning any Dispute shall be conducted and resolved on an individual basis only. The Parties further agree that any issue concerning the validity or enforceability of the Class Action Waiver contained in these Terms shall be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction. Any other issue concerning the arbitrability of any Dispute or any legal claim underlying a Dispute shall be resolved in arbitration.
C. Location of Arbitration: The Parties agree that any arbitration under these Terms will take place in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In the event that the arbitration provisions in these Terms are inapplicable, the parties hereby agree and consent to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Minnesota, and agree that such courts are the exclusive proper jurisdiction and venue for a dispute between the parties and consent to the jurisdiction and proper venue of such courts.
D. Remedies: The Parties agree that the arbitrator(s) shall have the authority to award any and all damages, awards, remedies, or other relief that would be available in a court of competent jurisdiction subject to these Terms.
E. Arbitration Fees and Expenses: The Parties agree that Filmbook shall pay all AAA fees, except for the filing fee for any Dispute You initiate up to the amount of the filing fee you would have incurred in a court of competent jurisdiction or $200, whichever is less. You understand and agree that you are responsible for any fees and expenses of any witness(es) whose presence you require at the arbitration and for any fees and expenses of your attorney(s).
F. Choice of Law: The Parties agree that these Terms are made pursuant to and shall be construed and enforced at all times in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) and the law of the State of Minnesota to the extent Minnesota law is not inconsistent with the FAA and without regard to conflicts of law principles.
In case any one or more of the provisions contained in these Terms, shall, for any reason, be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect the other provisions of these Terms, and these Terms shall be construed as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision had never been contained herein. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event the Class Action Waiver above is determined to be invalid, unenforceable or void with respect to any legal claim underlying any Dispute, that claim and only that claim shall proceed in court and the Dispute Resolution provisions herein, including the Class Action Waiver, shall remain effective and enforceable with respect to all other legal claims underlying any Dispute. Insofar as any legal claim underlying any Dispute is permitted to proceed on a class action, collective action, or representative action basis, it may do so only in a court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration.
The failure of Filmbook to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Filmbook except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
