Agreement to Arbitrate and Class Action Waiver:
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY.
In the event of any controversy, claim or dispute (“dispute”) related to or arising out of your use of the inKin Service, other than disputes related to or involving inKin’s intellectual property, you and inKin mutually agree to the following dispute resolution procedure:
The parties will first attempt in good faith to resolve any dispute by informal negotiation. The informal negotiation period will begin when the party asserting the dispute sends a written notice to the other party describing the facts and circumstances of the dispute. You may send such notice to inKin to [email protected] If, after sixty (60) days from the date the notice of dispute is sent, the parties have been unable to resolve the dispute, either party may commence binding arbitration. The parties may agree to extend the informal dispute resolution period by mutual written agreement.
If the parties are unable to resolve the dispute through informal negotiation, you and inKin agree that exclusive jurisdiction for the dispute shall be final and binding arbitration before one arbitrator to be mutually agreed upon by both parties. If the parties cannot agree on the selection of an Arbitrator, they shall each select one Arbitrator from the list of qualified JAMS arbitrators and those two Arbitrators shall select the person who shall serve as the Arbitrator for such dispute. The Arbitration shall be initiated in New York, New York, unless the parties mutually agree to an alternative location. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures available at jamsadr.com. The arbitral tribunal shall have the power to rule on any challenge to its own jurisdiction or to the validity or enforceability of any portion of the agreement to arbitrate. Judgment on any potential award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT BY USING THE INKIN SERVICE, YOU ARE HEREBY GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY.
You have the right to opt out of this agreement to arbitrate by providing written notice of your intention to do so within 30 days of your first acceptance of these Terms. Your notice should include your first and last names and mailing address and should clearly indicate that you are opting out of this agreement to arbitrate. Your notice should be sent to [email protected]
ALL DISPUTES SHALL BE RESOLVED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. Neither party shall have the right to have a dispute heard as a class, consolidated or representative action and no arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to the proceeding. The arbitral tribunal may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
If any clause within this “Agreement to Arbitrate and Class Action Waiver” provision is found to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, such invalidity or unenforceability shall not affect the enforceability or validity of any other portion of this provision, which shall remain in full force and effect and be construed as if the invalid or unenforceable portion were not part of the provision.
Choice of Law:
These Terms shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to any conflict of law principles. The parties acknowledge that this policy evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the provision in the preceding paragraph with respect to applicable substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Policy shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16).
Choice of Forum:
By using the inKin Service, you agree that the exclusive jurisdiction for any dispute not subject to the arbitration provision discussed above shall be the state and federal courts located in New York, New York.
