- Agreement to arbitration is a required condition of your use of the Site. You and Smokey Bones agree that if any controversy, allegation, or claim arises out of or relates to the Site or these Terms and Conditions (“Dispute”), including questions about whether the Dispute is subject to arbitration, that Dispute shall be resolved according to this Section 32. You and Smokey Bones also agree that all Disputes shall be determined exclusively by binding arbitration in accordance with the then-current Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”), an independent national arbitration association, before a single arbitrator. Information about JAMS and its expedited rules can be found at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at (800) 352-5267.
If there is an arbitration, Smokey Bones will pay for the arbitrator and the forum. If you initiate the arbitration against Smokey Bones, you will be responsible for a maximum of $250 in costs under JAMS’ Consumer Arbitration Minimum Standards. If Smokey Bones initiates the arbitration against you, Smokey Bones will pay JAMS’ fees, including the fees for the arbitrator’s services. If you retain an attorney to represent you, Smokey Bones will not pay any portion of your attorneys’ fees.
To start the arbitration process, Smokey Bones or you will send a written request for arbitration to JAMS at 600 Brickell Avenue, Suite 2600, Miami, FL 33131 by U.S. mail or a reputable overnight delivery service (for example, Federal Express). You must also send a copy of any arbitration request to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we are aware of the arbitration and can pay JAMS’ fee. JAMS will select a location for the arbitration, according to its procedural standards, that will be convenient for you. An arbitrator will be selected, and he or she will issue a final and binding arbitration award in the form of a written statement stating the disposition of each claim. The award will also provide a concise written statement of the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU OR WE WANT TO ASSERT A DISPUTE AGAINST THE OTHER, THEN YOU OR WE MUST INITIATE IT WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE DISPUTE ARISES – OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED. “Initiating” means filing for arbitration with JAMS as set forth above. The parties expressly waive any contrary statute of limitations or time bars, both legal and equitable, to a Dispute.
The foregoing provisions of this Section 32 will not apply to any claim by you or Smokey Bones seeking an injunction or other equitable relief in connection
with any loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the Site, Smokey Bones’ operations, and/or Smokey Bones’ products or services. This Section 32 shall apply to any claims brought by you or Smokey Bones in any action that does not seek such injunctive or equitable relief.
- YOU AGREE TO FILE ONE ARBITRATION THAT INCLUDES ALL OF YOUR DISPUTES AND JOINS ALL KNOWN DISPUTES. FURTHER, YOU AGREE THAT ANY ACTION YOU BRING SHALL BE INDIVIDUALLY ON YOUR OWN BEHALF AND THAT YOU EXPRESSLY WAIVE THE RIGHT TO BRING A DISPUTE ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS IN ANY FORUM, WHETHER IT BE IN ARBITRATION OR IN A COURT. THE ARBITRATOR SHALL NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO FORM A CLASS OR PROCEED ON A COLLECTIVE BASIS. There shall be no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on behalf of the general public, or other persons or entities similarly situated. But if, for any reason, any court with competent jurisdiction holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement in Section 32 to arbitrate will not apply and the Dispute must be brought exclusively in court in accordance with the venue and jurisdiction provisions set forth below.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either of us may bring a Dispute in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction, provided the claim qualifies to be heard in such small claims court.
Small claims actions, actions with respect to the enforcement of any arbitration decision or award, or any action or proceeding relating to any Dispute arising hereunder may only be instituted in state or Federal court in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Accordingly, you and Smokey Bones consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for such matters.
YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE TO WAIVE THE RIGHT TO HAVE ANY DISPUTE (AS DEFINED IN THESE TERMS) THAT YOU BRING IN STATE OR FEDERAL COURT HEARD BY A JURY.
The award of such arbitration shall be confidential, final, binding, and non-appealable, except to the extent provided under the rules of JAMS, and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. NO ARBITRATOR SHALL AWARD DAMAGES THAT ARE INCONSISTENT WITH THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT.
