  11. Dispute Resolution, Binding Arbitration, and Class Action Waiver.

    PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.

    • 11.1 Initial Dispute Resolution. For any problem or dispute that you may have with us, you understand and agree that you will first give us an opportunity to resolve your problem or dispute. In order to initiate this dispute resolution process, you agree that you shall first send us a written description of your problem or dispute within thirty (30) days of the occurrence of the event giving rise to the problem or dispute by sending an email to: [email protected] or by mail to the address listed below. You then agree to negotiate with us in good faith about your problem or dispute for sixty (60) days. If you and TurboPass do not resolve any dispute by informal negotiation within sixty (60) days of receipt of a written description of the dispute, any other effort to resolve the dispute will be conducted exclusively by binding arbitration as described in Sections 11.2 or 11.3. YOU AND TURBOPASS ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE (OR PARTICIPATE IN AS A PARTY OR CLASS MEMBER) ALL DISPUTES IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY. Instead, all disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act.
    • 11.2 Binding Commercial Arbitration (COMMERCIAL USERS ONLY). Except as provided in Section 11.5, if a Commercial User and TurboPass are unable to reach an agreed upon solution under the Initial Dispute Resolution provision, then either party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve claims, subject to the terms set forth below. Specifically, all claims arising out of or relating to these Terms (including formation, performance and breach), the parties’ relationship with each other and/or your use of the Services shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with the provisions of its Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) then in force, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms are void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be written, and binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
    • 11.3 Binding Consumer Arbitration (CONSUMERS ONLY). Except as provided in Section 11.5, if a Consumer User and TurboPass are unable to reach an agreed upon solution under the Initial Dispute Resolution provision, then either party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve claims, subject to the terms set forth below. Specifically, all claims arising out of or relating to these Terms (including formation, performance and breach), the parties’ relationship with each other and/or your use of the Services shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with the provisions of its Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA”) then in force, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms are void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be written, and binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
    • 11.4 Location. The seat of any arbitration arising under this Section 11 shall be Austin, Texas.
    • 11.5 Class Action Waiver. ANY PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE OR LITIGATE ANY DISPUTE WILL BE CONDUCTED SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. NEITHER YOU NOR TURBOPASS WILL SEEK TO HAVE ANY DISPUTE HEARD AS A CLASS ACTION OR IN ANY OTHER PROCEEDING IN WHICH EITHER PARTY ACTS OR PROPOSES TO ACT IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes. No arbitration or proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings.
    • 11.6 Exceptions. Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, you agree that TurboPass may seek any interim or preliminary relief from a court of competent jurisdiction necessary to protect its rights or property pending the completion of arbitration.
    • 11.7 Statute of Limitations.
