- Arbitration. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS CAREFULLY BECAUSE THEY REQUIRE YOU TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES WITH US THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION.
All disputes, claims or controversies arising out of or relating to these TOS, our Site or the relationship between you and us (“Disputes”) shall be determined exclusively by binding arbitration. This includes claims that accrued before you entered into these TOS. The Disputes do not include any claim regarding the infringement, protection or validity of intellectual property rights, Serendi’s claim for injunctive or other equitable relief, or a claim brought in small claims court.
Either party may elect to have the Dispute finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written notice of dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to us should be addressed to: Serendi US, Inc., 9171 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 500, Beverly Hills, CA 90210, ATTN: Legal. The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought. If you and we do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding.
Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other. The arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”) then in effect. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Rules. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. Arbitration of any claim not exceeding $25,000 will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Serendi submit to the arbitrator. The arbitrator shall make a decision in writing, and shall provide a statement of reasons if requested by either party. Either party may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
YOU AND SERENDI AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, COLLECTIVE, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. The arbitrator shall not consolidate another person's claims with your claims, and shall not preside over any type of representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.
Unless you and we otherwise agree, arbitration will take place in the county where you live. For residents outside the United States, arbitration shall be initiated in Los Angeles County, State of California, United States of America.
If the arbitrator rules in your favor on the merits of any claim you bring against us and issues you an award that is greater in monetary value than our last written settlement offer made before our final written submissions to the arbitrator, then we will reimburse the arbitration fees that you paid to the AAA.
* Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 2 (Modification), if Serendi changes this Section 22 (Arbitration) after the date you first accepted these TOS (or accepted any subsequent changes to these TOS), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to firstname.lastname@example.org) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Effective Date” or in the Serendi’s email notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Serendi in accordance with the provisions of the “Arbitration” section (however entitled) of TOS that was mostly recently accepted by you.
- Limitation on Claims. YOU AGREE THAT ANY CLAIM THAT YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE USE OF THE SITE OR YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH SERENDI MUST BE FILED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER SUCH CLAIM AROSE; OTHERWISE YOUR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
- Governing Law. These TOS shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the United States and the State of California, without reference to their rules regarding conflicts of law. You hereby irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state or federal courts in Los Angeles County, California, USA in all disputes, except claims and dispute subject to the arbitration agreement above, arising out of or related to the use of the Site.
- Severability; Waiver. If, for whatever reason, a court of competent jurisdiction finds any of these TOS to be invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and all other terms and conditions will remain unaffected and in full force and effect. No waiver of any breach of any provision of these TOS shall constitute a waiver of any prior, concurrent, or subsequent breach of the same or any other provisions hereof, and no waiver shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party.
- Geographic Limit/ Local Laws. We provide this Site for use only by persons located in the United States. Those who access the Site from locations other than the United States do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws if and to the extent local laws are applicable.
