12. Dispute Resolution, Agreement to Arbitrate, and Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. THIS SECTION AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO BRING A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
12.1 BINDING ARBITRATION. Any and all controversies or claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration, with the limited exception of the following: 1) any statutory or common law claim involving intellectual property, and 2) any claim brought in small claims court where the amount in controversy is properly within the jurisdiction of such small claims court (collectively, the “Excluded Claims”). YOUR AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATION MEANS, EXCEPT FOR THE EXCLUDED CLAIMS, YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT AND THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY. INSTEAD, YOU WILL HAVE A HEARING BEFORE A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR.
12.2 WAIVER OF CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS. YOU AND CARBON-NEUTRAL CONSULTING LLC AGREE THAT YOU EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A NAMED PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION, OR ANY FORM OF REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU AGREE THAT FOR ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN US THERE WILL BE NO CLASS ARBITRATIONS OR CLASS ACTIONS IN ANY FORUM. This means that by entering into this Agreement, any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis only and the arbitrator shall not allow any class arbitrations or class proceedings, and shall not aggregate claims of multiple parties. This also means that by entering into this Agreement, independent of the agreement to arbitrate and waiver of class arbitration, you are giving up the ability to participate in or bring a class action in court for any and all claims, including but not limited to the Excluded Claims.
12.3 All arbitrations under this Agreement will be administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “Arbitration Rules”). Contact information for the American Arbitration Association, as well as copies of the Rules and applicable forms, are available at http://www.adr.org.
12.4 All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope, application, and enforceability of the arbitration and class action waiver provisions are for the court to decide. As noted in Section 14 below, Rhode Island law applies to any arbitration under this Agreement, but the parties acknowledge that the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of the arbitration agreement.
12.5 In circumstances in which the Arbitration Rules provide for an in-person hearing, such hearing will take place in the State of Rhode Island, unless you and we both agree otherwise in writing. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules.
12.6 Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any federal or state court of competent jurisdiction located in the State of Rhode Island.
12.7 To reduce the time and expense of the arbitration, the arbitrator will not provide a statement of reasons for his or her award unless requested to do so by both parties.
