ARBITRATION CLAUSE & CLASS ACTION WAIVER. THIS AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
Arbitration; Class Action Waiver.
YOU AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US OR ANY OF OUR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS OR EMPLOYEES ACTING IN THEIR CAPACITY AS SUCH (WHETHER OR NOT SUCH DISPUTE INVOLVES A THIRD PARTY) WITH REGARD TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH US, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DISPUTES RELATED TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOUR USE OF THE POWER UP SITE, AND/OR RIGHTS OF PRIVACY AND/OR PUBLICITY, WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND YOU AND WE HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY. DISCOVERY AND RIGHTS TO APPEAL IN ARBITRATION ARE GENERALLY MORE LIMITED THAN IN A LAWSUIT, AND OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU AND WE WOULD HAVE IN COURT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU AND WE ARE EACH WAIVING OUR RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in these Terms and Conditions will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either of us to (a) bring an individual action in small claims court; (b) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in a court of law; or (d) file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of, relating to or in connection with this agreement, including any questions regarding its existence, validity or termination, shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration administered by
the Australian Disputes Centre (ADC). The arbitration shall be conducted in Sydney, NSW in accordance with the ADC Rules for Domestic Arbitration operating at the time the dispute is referred to ADC (the “Rules”). The terms of the Rules are hereby deemed incorporated into this agreement and this clause shall survive termination of this agreement.
No Class Actions.
YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS TO THE FULLEST EXTENT LEGALLY PERMISSIBLE AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
Modifications to this Arbitration Provision.
If we make any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to our address for Notice of Arbitration, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to our address for Notice of Arbitration, in which case your account with PLO will be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected will survive.
If this Disputes section is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Disputes section will be null and void and, in that case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in the General section below will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms and Conditions.
We each agree to keep the arbitration proceedings, all information exchanged between us, and any settlement offers confidential, unless otherwise required by law or requested by law enforcement or any court or governmental body. However, we may each disclose these matters, in confidence, to our respective accountants, auditors, and insurance providers.
These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and PLO and govern your use of the Power Up Site, superseding any prior agreements between you and PLO with respect to the Power Up Site. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate or third-party services, third-party content or third-party software. These Terms and Conditions will be governed by the laws of the State of New South Walves without regard to its conflict of law provisions. With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration, as set forth above, you and PLO agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located within Sydney, New South Wales. The failure of PLO to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms and Conditions will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be (or are otherwise) 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 these Terms and Conditions remain in full force and effect.
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Power Up Site or these Terms and Conditions must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. You may not assign these Terms and Conditions without the prior written consent of PLO, but PLO may assign or transfer these Terms and Conditions, in whole or in part, without restriction. If we fail to enforce any of our rights, that does not result in a waiver of that right. The section titles in these Terms and Conditions are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Notices to you may be made via either email or regular mail. The Power Up Site may also provide notices to you of changes to these Terms and Conditions or other matters by displaying notices or links to notices generally on the Power Up Site.
