MODIFICATION OR SUSPENSION OF THE SITE
You agree that we may, in our sole discretion and at any time, modify, discontinue, or suspend its operation of the Site, any part thereof or any Contents, temporarily or permanently, without notice or liability to you.
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any P.C. Richard & Son service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by P.C. Richard & Son or through P.C. Richard & Son Sites, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify.
This agreement does not in any way alter your ability to bring concerns to the attention of P.C. Richard & Son’s Customer Service, or to raise any concerns with federal, state, or local agencies. The Federal Arbitration Act, federal arbitration law, and the laws of the State of New York, without regard to conflict of laws principles, apply to this agreement and any dispute or claim between you and P.C. Richard & Son.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our Legal Department at Legaltakedownprocedure@pcrichard.com
The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. No demand for arbitration may be made after the date when the institution of legal or equitable proceedings based on such claim or dispute would be barred by the applicable statute of limitation.
You and P.C. Richard & Son are each responsible for your respective costs relating to counsel, experts, and witnesses, as well as any other costs relating to the arbitration. P.C. Richard & Son, however, will pay for the arbitration administration or filing fees, including the arbitrator and/or other AAA case management fees ("Administration Fees"), under the following circumstances: (1) for any disputes totaling up to $2,500, P.C. Richard & Son will pay all Administrative Fees; and (2) for any disputes totaling over $2,500 and up to $10,000, the parties will adhere to the AAA’s Costs of Arbitration section of the Consumer Arbitration Rules, however, P.C. Richard & Son will pay all Administrative Fees upon you providing P.C. Richard & Son with a signed written notice indicating the basis for your inability to pay your portion of the Administrative Fees. If the claim is determined by the arbitrator to be frivolous, however, P.C. Richard & Son will not pay any portion of your Administrative Fees. 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. In cases where an in-person hearing is held, you and/or P.C. Richard & Son may attend by telephone, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.
We each expressly agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action, regardless of whether the procedures or rules of AAA would allow such an action. We each expressly waive our rights to file or participate in a class action or seek relief on a class or representative basis. Further, and unless we each expressly agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one individual party’s claims with any other party’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or collective proceeding. If either party fails to comply with this arbitration provision relating to any Dispute, said breaching party shall be liable for the costs and attorneys’ fees incurred by the other party in enforcing compliance with the arbitration agreement. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial.
We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
