XVII. Governing Law; Jurisdiction; Limitation on Time to File Claims
XVIII. Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration
READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM ONEPLUS.
18.1 YOU AND ONEPLUS ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT (EXCEPT FOR MATTERS THAT MAY BE TAKEN TO SMALL CLAIMS COURT AS FURTHER SET FORTH BELOW IN THIS SECTION 18) OR BEFORE A JURY, OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY ALSO BE UNAVAILABLE OR MAY BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
18.4 This agreement to arbitrate applies (i) whether your dispute is with OnePlus, its subsidiaries, affiliates, or parent company, or any suppliers or service providers involved with the Site or OnePlus’s products and services, and their officers, directors, employees, agents, assigns, predecessors, and successors; and (ii) regardless of the legal theory on which you base your claim (such as breach of warranty, breach of contract, negligence, etc.). This agreement to arbitrate will also be binding upon, and shall include any claims brought by, any other third parties, including, without limitation, your spouse, heirs, third-party beneficiaries, successors, and assigns, where their underlying claims arise out of or relate to a Covered Dispute.
18.6 The arbitration shall be conducted by a single arbitrator and will be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures applicable to consumer disputes, and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those Rules, unless the parties agree to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (collectively, the “JAMS Rules”), except as modified by this Article XVIII. The JAMS Rules are available online at www.jamsadr.com.
18.7 For disputes arising in a jurisdiction where JAMS cannot or will not administer the arbitration, the parties shall be required to meet and confer to select a neutral arbitration provider. Such an arbitration provider shall have operations in the state in which the dispute arises. If the parties are unable to mutually agree upon an arbitration provider, then either party may invoke 9 U.S.C. § 5 to request that a court of competent jurisdiction appoint an arbitration provider with operations in the state in which the dispute arises. Any arbitration provider appointed by a court under 9 U.S.C. § 5 shall conduct arbitration solely on an individualized basis as set forth herein. Once the parties mutually agree upon a neutral arbitration provider, or an arbitrator provider is appointed under 9 U.S.C. § 5, the ensuing arbitration shall commence pursuant to the rules of the designated arbitration provider, except as otherwise designated herein. Once an arbitration provider is agreed upon or appointed, an arbitrator shall be appointed. The arbitrator will be either (i) a retired judge, or (ii) an attorney licensed to practice law in the state where the arbitration is conducted with experience in the law underlying the dispute. The arbitrator will be selected by the parties from the applicable arbitration provider’s roster of arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator after a good faith meet and confer effort, then the applicable arbitration provider will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with its rules.
18.8 We each agree that, as a condition precedent to initiating any arbitration or other legal proceedings, the parties shall make a good faith effort to resolve any Covered Dispute. In the event that the parties are unable to resolve any Covered Dispute within a reasonable period (which, in any event, shall not exceed sixty (60) days), you or OnePlus may initiate an arbitration proceeding by (i) sending a written notice (entitled, and referred to herein as a, “Demand for Arbitration”) to the other party by mail; AND (ii) sending an electronic copy of the Demand for Arbitration to email@example.com (if the Demand for Arbitration is from you) or to any email address that you provide to us when registering a OnePlus account or purchasing OnePlus product(s) or that you otherwise publish through the Site (if the Demand for Arbitration is from OnePlus). Any Demand for Arbitration that you send to OnePlus should be delivered to our principal place of business at: OnePlus, Attn: Legal Department, Re: Demand for Arbitration, Riverside Commons, 5000 Riverside Drive, Building 5, Suite 300, Irving, Texas 75039 USA.
18.9 Unless the parties agree otherwise, any arbitration hearing will take place (at your option) in Dallas County, Texas or in the county in which you reside. However, subject to the approval of the arbitrator and OnePlus, you may decide whether you want the arbitration to be conducted instead: (i) based on written submissions without an oral hearing, or (ii) through a telephone or videoconference hearing.
18.11 Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS Rules unless otherwise stated in this agreement to arbitrate. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, OnePlus will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration. If the value of the relief sought is more than $10,000 and you are able to demonstrate that the cost of accessing arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the cost of accessing a court for purposes of pursuing litigation on an individual basis, OnePlus will pay as much of the filing, administration, and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the cost of accessing arbitration from being prohibitive. If the arbitrator decides that either the substance of your claim or the remedy you asked for is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, the parties will use the JAMS Rules to determine whether you or OnePlus is responsible for the filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees.
18.12 The foregoing notwithstanding, if a party’s claim is within the jurisdiction of a small claims court, either party may choose to take the claim to that court instead of arbitration as follows: (i) a party may take its claim to small claims court without first sending a Demand for Arbitration to the other party; (ii) a party that receives a Demand for Arbitration can, within thirty (30) calendar days after its receipt of the Demand for Arbitration (the “Forum Determination Period”), send written notice (in the manner prescribed in Section 18.8 above) to the opposing party that it wants the case decided by a small claims court; (iii) after the expiration of the Forum Determination Period and after a case is filed with JAMS, but before the issuance of a Commencement Letter (as such term is defined in the JAMS Rules), a party can send written notice (in the manner prescribed in Section 18.8 above) to the opposing party and JAMS that it wants the case decided by a small claims court (after receiving this notice, JAMS will administratively close the case); and (iv) after the expiration of the Forum Determination Period, after a case is filed with JAMS, and after the issuance of a Commencement Letter, the parties may mutually agree in writing that the arbitration case should be closed and the dispute decided in small claims court. The small-claims court proceeding will be limited solely to your individual dispute or controversy and will not be consolidated with any other action or conducted on a class-wide, representative, or class-action basis. Neither party may file a case with jams (for a claim that is within the jurisdiction of a small claims court) until after the expiration of the Forum Determination Period.
18.13 The forgoing notwithstanding, you or OnePlus may file suit in court to address an intellectual property rights infringement claim (as set forth in Section 17.1 above).
18.14 You agree to an arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, NEITHER YOU NOR ONEPLUS WILL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER USERS OF THE SITE IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER, IN A REPRESENATIVE CAPACITY, OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. 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. The arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of you, the individual party seeking relief, and only to the extent necessary to provide relief that is warranted by your individual claim, and not any remedy that affects other users of the Site or third parties. The arbitral tribunal has no power to consider the enforceability of this class arbitration waiver and any challenge to the class arbitration waiver may only be raised in a court of competent jurisdiction. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of the limitations set forth in this Section 18.14 as to a particular claim for relief or remedy (such as declaratory or injunctive relief), then that claim or remedy (and only that claim or remedy) must be severed from the arbitration and must be brought in the state or federal courts located in Dallas County, Texas or in the county in which you reside, while the remaining claims and remedies (such as individual damages or restitution) will still be resolved through binding arbitration.
18.16 Subject to the provisions of Section 18.14 above, if any provision of this agreement to arbitrate is found unenforceable, that provision will be severed and the balance of this agreement to arbitrate will remain in full force and effect. Severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of the agreement to arbitrate or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to the agreement to arbitrate. To the extent any claims must proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration.
18.17 Subject to the provisions of Section 18.14 above, (i) the substance of any disputes where public injunctive relief is available shall be decided by the arbitrator; and (ii) only if the claimant succeeds on its claim permitting the remedy of public injunction may such claimant request that a court of competent jurisdiction enter an injunction in conformity with the arbitral award.
19.6 You may not use or export or re-export any Content or any copy or adaptation of such Content, or any product or service offered on the Site, in violation of any applicable export laws or regulations. You are responsible for complying with United States and foreign export controls and for any violation of such controls, including any United States embargoes or other rules and regulations restricting exports. You represent that you are not: (i) located in, or a resident or a national of, any country subject to a government embargo or other restriction, or that has been designated by any government as a “terrorist supporting” country; or (ii) on any government list of restricted end users.
