CLASS ACTION WAIVER
Both you and The Athletico waive the right to bring any controversy, claim or dispute arising out of or relating in any way to your use of the The Athletico Services, your membership in or purchases through the The Athletico VIP Membership Program and/or your Account, or products purchased through the The Athletico Services as a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action, or to participate in a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action regarding any such claim brought by anyone else. (This waiver, and the similar waiver specified for arbitration proceedings, are generally referred to herein as "the class action waiver.")
Jurisdiction and venue for any dispute shall be in Los Angeles, California. Each party submits to personal jurisdiction and venue in that forum for any and all purposes.
AGREEMENT TO PRE-ARBITRATION NOTIFICATION
These Terms of Service provide for final, binding arbitration of all disputed claims (discussed immediately below). The Athletico and you agree, however, that it would be advantageous to discuss and hopefully resolve any disputes before arbitration proceedings or any other proceedings authorized herein are initiated. In the event of a dispute, the claimant whether you or The Athletico shall send a letter to the other side briefly summarizing the claim and the request for relief. If The Athletico is the claimant, the letter shall be sent, via email, to the email account listed in your Account. If you are the claimant, the letter shall be sent to The Athletico, LLC, Attn: General Counsel, 800 Apollo Street, El Segundo, California 90245. If the dispute is not resolved within 60 days after the letter is sent, the claimant may proceed to initiate arbitration proceedings or any other proceedings authorized herein.
AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE CLAIMS
Except to the limited extent noted below, use of the The Athletico Services, membership in the The Athletico VIP Membership Program, any purchases made through the The Athletico Services, and any controversy, claim or dispute arising out of or relating in any way to your use of the The Athletico Services, your membership in or purchases through the The Athletico VIP Membership Program, or products purchased through the The Athletico Services shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration between you and The Athletico.
The arbitration shall take place in Los Angeles County, California in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures of the American Arbitration Association. Unless either party or the arbitrator requests a hearing, the parties will submit their arguments and evidence to the arbitrator in writing. The arbitrator will make an award based only on the documents. This is called a Desk Arbitration. If any party makes a written request for a hearing within ten days after the American Arbitration Association acknowledges receipt of a claimant's demand for arbitration (or the arbitrator requests a hearing), the parties shall participate in a telephone hearing. In no event shall the parties be required to travel to Los Angeles to participate in the arbitration.
If you decide to commence arbitration, the provider will require to you to pay a filing fee (which currently is $125 for claims under $10,000). If your filing fee is more than $125, The Athletico will reimburse you for any excess fee promptly after it receives notice of your arbitration. If the arbitrator ultimately rules in your favor, The Athletico will also reimburse you for the $125 base filing fee.
If the arbitrator rules in your favor in any respect on the merits of your claim and issues you an award that is greater than the value of The Athletico' last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected (or greater than zero if no offer was made), then The Athletico will pay you the amount of the award or $350, whichever is greater (in addition to reimbursing you for the base filing fee).
This arbitration agreement is subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and is enforceable pursuant to its terms on a self-executing basis. Either party may seek enforcement of this provision in any court of competent jurisdiction.
The arbitrator shall determine any and all challenges to the arbitrability of a claim. The arbitral award shall be judicially enforceable. Any court of competent jurisdiction may, and upon request shall, enter judgment on the arbitral award. Either party may seek confirmation (judgment on the award) and/or enforcement in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Notwithstanding any provision in the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures to the contrary, and with the exception of Desk Arbitrations, the Federal Rules of Evidence shall govern the admissibility of evidence in any arbitral proceeding.
Both you and The Athletico waive the right to bring any claim covered by this dispute resolution provision as a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action, or to participate in a class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action regarding any claim covered by this dispute resolution provision brought by anyone else.
Notwithstanding any provision in the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures to the contrary, the arbitrator shall not have the authority or any jurisdiction to hear the arbitration as a class, consolidated, representative, or private attorney general action or to consolidate, join, or otherwise combine the claims of different persons into one proceeding.
If a proposed class, consolidated, representative, collective, or private attorney general action arbitration is initiated notwithstanding the above prohibition and it is finally determined by the arbitrator (or a court of competent jurisdiction) that the waiver specified herein is not enforceable, then the arbitration proceedings shall be bifurcated as follows and notwithstanding any provision in the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures to the contrary: 1. The issue of arbitrability shall be determined by the Arbitrator pursuant to the applicable rules and substantive law. 2. Assuming the Arbitrator concludes that the arbitration may proceed, said arbitration shall be stayed, and the issue of whether to certify any alleged or putative class for a class action (or other representative) proceeding shall be presented to and decided by a court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall not have authority or jurisdiction to decide class certification (or any similar representative action) issues. The decision to certify or not certify a class action (or to otherwise permit the action to proceed on a representative basis) shall be appealable in the judicial proceedings consistent with the rules and law governing the appeals of interlocutory decisions or class certification (or similar) rulings specifically, if appropriate. 3. Once any issues regarding class certification (and/or similar representative requirements) have been finally decided by the court, the arbitrator will have authority to decide the substantive claims on an individual or a class (or other representative) basis, as may be determined and directed by the court.
The arbitrator(s) shall not have the power to commit errors of law or legal reasoning, make clearly erroneous factual findings, or abuse his or her discretion, and the award may be vacated or corrected on appeal to a court of competent jurisdiction for any such error.
These Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between you and The Athletico and govern your use of the The Athletico Services, and they supersede any prior agreements between you and The Athletico. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that are applicable to certain parts of the The Athletico Services. The Athletico may terminate this Agreement and deny you access to the The Athletico Services at any time, immediately and without notice, if in The Athletico' sole discretion you fail to comply with any provision of these Terms of Service.
You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between The Athletico and you as a result of this Agreement or your use of the The Athletico Services.
The failure of The Athletico to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. The invalidity of any term, condition or provision in these Terms of Service shall not affect the enforceability of those portions of the Terms deemed enforceable by applicable courts of law.
You may not assign the Terms or any of your rights or obligations under the Terms without The Athletico's express written consent. The Terms inure to the benefit of The Athletico's successors, assigns and licensees. The section titles in these Terms of Service are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
