PLEASE READ THIS FOLLOWING CLAUSE CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL.
- Initial Dispute Resolution: FARM Rio is available by email at hello@FARMRio.com to address any concerns you may have regarding the use of the Website or your purchase from FARM Rio. Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner. Each of you and FARM Rio agree to use best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
THE PARTIES UNDERSTAND THAT, IN LIGHT OF THIS MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISION, THEY ARE WAIVING THEIR RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE THEIR DISPUTES RESOLVED BY A JUDGE OR JURY TRIAL.
THE ARBITRATOR SHALL BE SELECTED PURSUANT TO THE JAMS RULES AND PROCEDURES. THE ARBITRATOR SHALL APPLY NEW YORK LAW CONSISTENT WITH THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT AND APPLICABLE STATUTES OF LIMITATIONS, AND SHALL HONOR CLAIMS OF PRIVILEGE RECOGNIZED AT LAW. IN THE EVENT THAT THE CLAIMANT IS ABLE TO DEMONSTRATE THAT THE COSTS OF ARBITRATION WILL BE PROHIBITIVE AS COMPARED TO THE COSTS OF LITIGATION, FARM Rio WILL PAY AS MUCH OF THE CLAIMANT’S FILING AND HEARING FEES IN CONNECTION WITH THE ARBITRATION AS THE ARBITRATOR DEEMS NECESSARY TO PREVENT THE ARBITRATION FROM BEING COST-PROHIBITIVE. IF ANY PART OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION IS DEEMED TO BE INVALID, UNENFORCEABLE OR ILLEGAL (OTHER THAN THAT CLAIMS WILL NOT BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE BASIS), OR OTHERWISE CONFLICTS WITH THE JAMS RULES AND PROCEDURES, THEN THE BALANCE OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION SHALL REMAIN IN EFFECT AND SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH ITS TERMS AS IF THE INVALID, UNENFORCEABLE, ILLEGAL OR CONFLICTING PROVISION WERE NOT CONTAINED HEREIN. IF, HOWEVER, THE PORTION THAT IS DEEMED INVALID, UNENFORCEABLE OR ILLEGAL IS THAT CLAIMS WILL NOT BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE BASIS, THEN THE ENTIRETY OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION SHALL BE NULL AND VOID, AND NEITHER CLAIMANT NOR FARM Rio SHALL BE ENTITLED TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTE.
- CLASS ACTION AND CLASS ARBITRATION WAIVER: YOU AND FARM Rio EACH FURTHER AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION SHALL BE CONDUCTED IN THEIR RESPECTIVE INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES ONLY AND NOT AS A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, AND YOU AND FARM Rio EACH EXPRESSLY WAIVE YOUR RESPECTIVE RIGHT TO FILE A CLASS ACTION OR SEEK RELIEF ON A CLASS BASIS. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN THE CLAIMS OF OTHER PERSONS OR PARTIES WHO MAY BE SIMILARLY SITUATED. IF ANY COURT OR ARBITRATOR DETERMINES THAT THE CLASS ACTION WAIVER SET FORTH IN THIS PARAGRAPH IS VOID OR UNENFORCEABLE FOR ANY REASON OR THAT AN ARBITRATION CAN PROCEED ON A CLASS BASIS, THEN THE ARBITRATION PROVISION SET FORTH ABOVE IN SECTION (B) SHALL BE DEEMED NULL AND VOID IN ITS ENTIRETY AND THE PARTIES SHALL BE DEEMED TO HAVE NOT AGREED TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES AND SUCH CLASS ACTION SHALL PROCEED CONSISTENT WITH SECTION (f) BELOW.
- Exception – Litigation of Small Claims Court Claims. Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
- 30 Day Right to Opt Out: You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth in Sections (b) and (c) by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to the following email: hello@FARMRio.com The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of your use the Website or your purchase from FARM Rio, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those sections. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, FARM Rio also will not be bound by them.
- Exclusive Venue for Litigation: To the extent that the arbitration provisions set forth in Section (b) do not apply, the parties agree that any litigation between them shall be filed exclusively in state or federal courts located in New York (except for small claims actions which may be brought in the county where you reside). The parties expressly consent to exclusive jurisdiction in New York for any litigation other than small claims court actions.
