Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration
THIS SECTION LIMITS CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM, AND THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION’S COMPREHENSIVE ARBITRATION RULES. YOU AND SAHARA BIKES AGREE TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTES BETWEEN US EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, WHICH MEANS YOU AND SB WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO LITIGATE DISPUTES IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY, OR AS PART OF A CLASS ACTION, A REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, A CONSOLIDATED ACTION OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY.
This arbitration requirement applies to any claim or dispute of any kind (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise, whether pre-existing, present, or future, and including statutory, common law, or equitable) between you and Sahara Bikes, its affiliates, agents, employees, successors, assigns, direct and indirect subsidiaries, and any third party in connection with your User Content, these Terms, or Sahara Bikes’ marketing or advertising (“Claims”).
You still have the right to bring individual Claims in small claims court, to the extent that you qualify. Sahara Bikes will pay the arbitration/arbitrator fees. Arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA), subject to its Consumer Arbitration Rules, available at (800) 778-7879 and www.adr.org. Discovery shall be permitted in arbitration subject to AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to resolve any arbitrability issues including any dispute over these Terms or this arbitration provision’s scope, application, meaning, and enforceability. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court. Any award of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Claims may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis. You and Sahara Bikes agree to arbitration only on an individual basis. Neither you nor Sahara Bikes may join or consolidate claims of others or participate in any claim as a class representative or a class member. If any portion of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable portion shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced (but in no event will there be a class arbitration). This paragraph controls over any inconsistent term in any other agreement.
You and Sahara Bikes agree that the arbitration will be kept confidential and that the existence of the proceeding and any element of it (including without limitation, any pleadings, briefs or other documents submitted or exchanged and any testimony or other oral submissions and awards) will not be disclosed beyond the arbitration proceedings, except as may lawfully be required in judicial proceedings relating to the arbitration or by applicable disclosure rules and regulations of securities regulatory authorities or other governmental agencies.
This arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA).
These UGC Terms are personal to you and may not be assigned or transferred by you for any reason whatsoever without our prior written consent. We may assign our rights and obligations under these UGC Terms to any other person, in whole or in part, without consent. A failure by us to exercise and any delay, forbearance or indulgence by us in exercising any right, power or remedy under these UGC Terms (in whole or in part) shall not operate as a waiver of that right, power or remedy or preclude its exercise at any subsequent time or on any subsequent occasion. A person not a party to these UGC Terms has no right to enforce any of these terms.
These UGC Terms contain all the terms agreed between you and Sahara Bikes regarding the User Content and supersede any prior agreement, understanding or arrangement between us, whether oral or in writing. The construction, validity and performance of these terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, USA and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of California to resolve any dispute arising under or in connection with these UGC Terms. If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of these UGC Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed without affecting the rest of the UGC Terms. The remaining provisions of these UGC Terms will continue to be valid and enforceable.
