Subject to the dispute resolution and Arbitration Agreement below, sole, exclusive and mandatory venue for any disputes arising from or concerning Ambassador and Company or this Agreement shall be in Travis County, Texas.
DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
Informal Dispute Resolution. Mindful of the high cost of legal disputes, not only in dollars but also in time and energy, both you and ZOX, LLC agree to the following dispute resolution procedure: In the event of any controversy, claim, action or dispute arising out of or related to any transaction conducted on by virtue of this agreement or the breach, enforcement, interpretation, or validity of this Agreement or any part of it ("Dispute"), the party asserting the Dispute shall first try in good faith to settle such Dispute by providing written notice to the other party (by first class or registered mail) describing the facts and circumstances (including any relevant documentation) of the Dispute and allowing the receiving party 30 days in which to respond to or settle the Dispute. Notice shall be sent
(1) to ZOX at: ZOX LLC Legal Department, 7701 N FM 620, Austin, TX 78726 with electronic copy sent to firstname.lastname@example.org Attn: General Counsel, or (2) to you at: your last-used billing address or the billing and/or shipping address in your online profile.
Both Ambassador and ZOX agree that this dispute resolution procedure is a condition precedent which must be satisfied prior to initiating any arbitration or filing any claim against the other party.
Arbitration Agreement. To the extent you cannot resolve any Dispute through the informal dispute resolution procedure described above, a Dispute must be resolved through binding individual arbitration. Ambassador and ZOX, LLC agree to give up your right to go to court to assert or defend your rights under this Agreement and with respect to any Dispute. Ambassador and ZOX expressly delegate to the arbitrator the authority to determine the arbitrability of any Dispute, including the scope, applicability, validity, and enforceability of this arbitration provision.
Ambassador may begin an arbitration proceeding by sending a letter requesting arbitration to:
ZOX LLC Legal Department, 7701 N FM 620, Austin, TX 78726 Kara@zox.la
Ambassador agrees that the arbitration shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) pursuant to its Consumer Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. The AAA Rules are available on the AAA’s websitewww.adr.org, or by calling the AAA at (800) 778-7879. In the event the AAA is unavailable or unwilling to hear the Dispute, the parties shall agree to another arbitration provider. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s applicable rules. ZOX will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 if the arbitrator rules in your favor on any material aspect of your claim. ZOX waives its right to seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration. However, if your claim is deemed by the arbitrator to be frivolous or brought in bad faith or with an improper purpose, as measured by the standards of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11, then the arbitrator may award ZOX. the reimbursement of its costs and arbitration fees against you and/or your counsel. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. You further agree that if your arbitration claim is filed at or around the time of other similar claims by the same or related counsel, you agree that your claim may be temporarily stayed or phased to allow the AAA to establish efficient and fair adjudication procedures.
In lieu of arbitration, either Ambassador or ZOX may bring any individual claim in small claims court consistent with the jurisdictional and dollar limits that may apply, as long as it is brought and maintained as an individual claim. Also, even if all parties have opted to litigate a claim in court, Ambassodor or we may elect arbitration with respect to any claim made by a new party or any claim later asserted by a party in any related or unrelated lawsuit, including modifying an individual claim to assert a class, representative or multi-party claim. Arbitration may be requested at any time, even where there is a pending lawsuit, unless a trial has begun, or a final judgment entered.
Waiver of Right to Bring Class Actions and Representative Claims. All arbitrations must proceed on an individual basis. The arbitrator is empowered to resolve the Dispute with the same remedies available in court. However, to the extent permissible by applicable law, any relief must be individualized to you and shall not affect any other customer.Ambassador and ZOX agree that each may bring claims against the other in arbitration only in your or ZOX respective individual capacities and in so doing Ambassador and ZOX hereby waive the right to a trial by jury, to assert or participate in a class action lawsuit or class action arbitration (either as a named-plaintiff or class member), and to assert or participate in any joint or consolidated lawsuit or joint or consolidated arbitration of any kind. If it is decided that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular claim, then that claim (and only that claim) must proceed in court and be severed from any arbitration.
Other Terms. This Arbitration Agreement shall be governed by, and interpreted, construed, and enforced in accordance with, the Federal Arbitration Act. The terms of the Arbitration Agreement provisions shall survive after this Agreement terminates or your use of the Sites ends. Except as set forth above, if any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable, it will not invalidate the remaining portions of the Arbitration Agreement.
MISCELLANEOUS. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between the Parties relating to this subject matter and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous oral or written agreements concerning such subject matter. In the event any provision, clause, sentence, phrase, or word hereof, or the application thereof in any circumstances, is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such invalidity or unenforceability shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remainder hereof, or of the application of any such provision, sentence, clause, phrase, or word in any other circumstances. The waiver by either Party of a breach of any provision of these Terms by the other Party shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any other or subsequent breach by the other Party. ZOX may modify these Terms at any time and at its sole discretion. These modifications may include, but not limited to changes in the amount of compensation, rate of commission fees, fee schedules, payment procedures, etc. If any of the modifications are unacceptable to you, your only recourse is to terminate your relationship with ZOX. If you continue providing Services following the posting of any modification or change to any of the Terms, it will be considered as your acceptance of the change. Ambassador may not subcontract or otherwise assign, transfer or delegate any of its rights, duties or obligations under these Terms. ZOX may assign, transfer or delegate its rights, duties and obligations hereunder to any third party acquirer of the business of ZOX, and following such an assignment, transfer and delegation, ZOX shall have no further duties or obligations hereunder.
