16. Dispute Resolution
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION 16 CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT. THIS SECTION 16 REQUIRES YOU TO AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN US THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION.
In exchange for the benefits of the speedy, economical, and impartial dispute resolution procedure of arbitration, you and Kredifi mutually agree to give up our right to resolve disagreements in a court of law by a judge or jury, and, as described below, agree to binding and final arbitration pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. You and Kredifi agree that this arbitration agreement is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, and shall survive even after these Terms or any Services terminate.
The parties agree that any disagreement, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to these Terms (including its enforcement, breach, performance, interpretation, validity, or termination), or Your access to or use of the Services (“Claims”), shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration to the fullest extent allowed by law.
Prior to initiating an arbitration, the parties agree to first attempt to negotiate an informal resolution of any Claims. This pre-arbitration negotiation shall be initiated by providing written notice to the other party—including a brief written statement describing the name, address, and contact information of the notifying party, the facts giving rise to the Claim, and the relief requested. You must send such written notice to Kredifi via email (email@example.com) or U.S. Mail (Kredifi, Inc., 830 Hillview Court, #280, Milpitas, CA 95035, USA). Kredifi will send such written notice to the email address on file for you. During this pre-arbitration negotiation, all offers, promises, conduct and statements, whether oral or written, made in the course of the negotiation by any of the parties, their agents, employees, and attorneys are confidential, privileged and inadmissible for any purpose, including as evidence of liability, in arbitration or other proceeding involving the parties.
After a good faith effort to negotiate, if you or Kredifi believe the Claim cannot be resolved informally, the party intending to pursue arbitration agrees to notify the other party via email prior to initiating the arbitration. In order to initiate arbitration, a claim must be filed with the AAA and the written Demand for Arbitration (available at www.adr.org) must be provided to the other party, as specified in the AAA Rules.
You and Kredifi agree that the arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) before a single arbitrator mutually agreed upon by the parties, and if the parties cannot agree within thirty (30) days after names of potential arbitrators have been proposed, then by a single arbitrator who is chosen by the AAA. The arbitrator will apply the terms of this arbitration agreement and the applicable AAA rules, which are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1–800–778–7879. If you are an individual person, the arbitrator shall apply the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules. If you are not an individual person, but are an entity or company, the arbitrator shall apply the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules. Each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. It is your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees as set forth in the AAA Rules.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT BOTH PARTIES TO THE TERMS WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. The parties further agree that the arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this agreement to arbitrate. Any such controversy or claim shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, unless both parties otherwise agree in writing. Further, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one party’s claims and may not preside over any class, consolidated, or representative proceeding, unless you and Kredifi agree otherwise in writing.
If there is a final determination that the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable as to certain claims brought on a class or representative basis, then those claims shall be severed from any remaining claims and may proceed in court, but the Class Action Waiver shall be enforced in arbitration on an individual basis as to any remaining claims to the fullest extent possible. If Any other clause within this arbitration agreement is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that specific clause will be severed from this arbitration agreement, and the remainder of the arbitration agreement will be given full force and effect.
If you are an individual person, you can opt-out of this arbitration agreement within 30 days of the date you first agreed to these Terms by sending written notice to Kredifi—clearly indicating your intent to opt out of this arbitration agreement and including the name, phone number, and email address associated with Your account—via U.S. Mail (Kredifi, Inc., 830 Hillview Court, #280, Milpitas, CA 95035, USA). If you do not opt-out of this arbitration agreement within the 30-day period, you and Kredifi shall be bound by the terms of this arbitration agreement in full. If you opt-out of this arbitration agreement within the 30-day period, it will not affect any other, previous, or future arbitration agreements that you may have with Kredifi.
