Governing Law and Jurisdiction
All matters relating to the Website, these Terms, and any dispute or claim arising therefrom or related thereto (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Illinois without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of Illinois or any other jurisdiction).
Limitation on Time to File Claims
ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR THE WEBSITE MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES, OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
Waiver and Severability
No waiver of by UrbanBound of any term or condition set forth in these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of UrbanBound to assert a right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
If any provision of these Terms is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms will continue in full force and effect.
We want to address your concerns without needing to file a formal legal claim. Before filing a claim against us, you acknowledge and agree you will try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting us at email@example.com. We will try to resolve the dispute via e-mail, but if we cannot resolve the dispute within thirty (30) days after the date of your submission, you agree to resolve any claims related to these Terms through final and binding arbitration, except as forth under this section titled “Arbitration”.
By using this Website, you agree that: (i) any claim, dispute, or controversy you may have against UrbanBound arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with this Terms or this Website shall be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") and conducted before a single arbitrator pursuant to the applicable Rules and Procedures established by AAA ("Rules and Procedures"); (ii) the arbitration shall be held at a location determined by AAA pursuant to the Rules and Procedures (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for you), or at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and UrbanBound; (iii) the arbitrator shall apply Illinois law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; (iv) there shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis; arbitration can decide only you and/or UrbanBound's individual claims; and the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated; (v) in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, UrbanBound will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive; and (vi) with the exception of subpart (iv) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures established by AAA, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (iv) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this Arbitration Provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor UrbanBound shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. For more information on AAA and its Rules and Procedures, you may visit the AAA website at http://www.adr.org.
You can opt-out and decline this agreement to arbitrate by contacting us within thirty (30) day of the date that you first became subject to this arbitration provision (i.e.: the date you accept these Terms). You must send us written notice to UrbanBound, Inc., Attention: Opt-Out Arbitration, 227 W. Monroe Street, Suite 2100 Chicago, Illinois, 60606. If you opt out, you are not required to participate in an arbitration proceeding.
Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in the event (i) you misuse and/or abuse our website or services, (ii) you breach the confidentiality terms set forth herein and/or (iii) you infringe a third party’s intellectual property rights, we may assert a claim against you and seek injunctive relief from a court of competent jurisdiction. In the event of the foregoing, any such action shall take place exclusively in the courts situated in the City of Chicago, Cook County, Illinois and the parties hereby submit to the venue of the courts situated therein.
No Class Actions
You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed.
