11. Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
Most user concerns can be resolved quickly and to the user’s satisfaction by emailing user support at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the event that RMI Insights has not been able to resolve a dispute with you through binding arbitration, mediation, or small claims court instead of in courts of general jurisdiction, RMI Insights and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us.
ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THESE TERMS WILL ONLY BE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED. YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO HAVE YOUR CASE DECIDED BY A JURY AND YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AGAINST RMI INSIGHTS.
Any dispute arising under this Agreement shall be finally settled in accordance with the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service, Inc. (“JAMS”) by three arbitrators appointed in accordance with such Rules. The arbitration shall take place in Denver, Colorado, in the English language and the arbitral decision may be enforced in any court. With respect to all disputes arising in relation to this Agreement, but subject to the preceding arbitration provision, the parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state and Federal courts located in Denver, Colorado. The prevailing party in any action or proceeding to enforce this Agreement will be entitled to recover reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees.
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 RMI Insights should be addressed to RMI Insights, Inc., 1615 Platte Street Suite 200, Denver, CO 80202, USA (“Arbitration Notice Address”). The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If RMI Insights and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or RMI Insights may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by RMI Insights or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or RMI Insights is entitled.
Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, you agree that if RMI Insights makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Arbitration Notice Address) while you are a user of the Services by posting the revised version on its website and your continued use of the Services after such posting constitutes your acceptance of such revised version.
Governing Law. This Agreement will be governed by the laws of the United States and the State of Colorado without regard to the principles of conflicts of law (except with respect to federal preemption principles). Unless otherwise elected by RMI Insights in a particular instance, you hereby expressly agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located within Denver County, Colorado for the purpose of resolving any dispute relating to your access to or use of the Service not subject to arbitration, as set forth above.
Entire Agreement. The failure of RMI Insights to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement will not be a waiver of that right. You acknowledge that this Agreement is a contract between you and RMI Insights, even though it is electronic and is not physically signed by you and RMI Insights, and it governs your use of the Service and takes the place of any prior agreements between you and RMI Insights. If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of this Agreement remain in full force and effect.
Modifications. RMI Insights may change this Agreement from time to time. If we do this, we will indicate at the top of this page the date these terms were last revised. We may, if we deemed reasonable under the circumstances, communicate the changes to you through the user interface of the Services. Any such changes will become effective immediately after they are posted to this page. Your continued use of the Services after the date any such changes become effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Agreement, provided that disputes arising hereunder will be resolved in accordance with the Agreement in place at the time the facts giving rise to the dispute occurred.
