RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES
Governing Law - These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California without application of conflict of laws rules.
Resolution of any Dispute - In the event a dispute arises between you and Blue Collar Elite, we want to provide you with an efficient, neutral and cost-effective means of resolving the dispute. Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by contacting Client Support at email@example.com. If, however, there is an issue that needs to be resolved, these Terms describe how both of us will proceed:
Limitation of Legal Remedies - INSTEAD OF SUING IN COURT, YOU AND COMPANY EACH AGREE TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES ON A BILATERAL (INDIVIDUAL) BASIS. You and Blue Collar Elite agree that any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to any aspect of our relationship; the Content and Services accessible from Blue Collar Elite Applications; claims that may arise after the termination of your Membership; and claims related to marketing efforts, including complaints concerning unsolicited text messages, emails, and telemarketing calls. ("Claim(s)") which cannot be settled through Client Support refunding your payments in full, shall be resolved by one arbitrator through binding arbitration. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes Claims based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory. The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with some exceptions under the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. 1, et seq., and judgement on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction.
Class Action Waiver - We each agree that each of us are waiving the right to a trial by jury and may bring claims against the other only in an individual capacity and not in a class action or representative proceeding. All arbitrations under these Terms shall be conducted on an individual (and not a class-wide) basis, and an arbitrator shall have no authority to award class-wide relief. You acknowledge and agree that these Terms specifically prohibit you from commencing any legal proceedings as a representative of others or joining in any arbitration proceedings brought by any other person (“class action waiver”).
Arbitration Procedures - A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other a written Notice of Dispute describing the nature and basis of the Claim and setting forth the specific relief sought. All Notices to Blue Collar Elite shall be sent to the following address: Blue Collar Elite, 5737 Kanan Rd. #717 Agoura Hills, CA. 91301. All notices to users of Blue Collar Elite Applications will be sent to the email provided in the user’s account. Upon receipt of such Notice, the other party shall have a sixty (60) day period in which it may satisfy the Claim against it by fully curing the Claim and/or providing all the relief requested in the Notice, and/or entering into a settlement to resolve the Claim to the mutual satisfaction of the parties. After the expiration of such sixty-day cure period, you or Blue Collar Elite may commence an arbitration proceeding. The arbitration of any Claim under this Agreement shall be referred to the American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) under its rules and procedures, including the AAA's Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. These rules and procedures are available by calling the AAA or by visiting its web site at www.adr.org. The arbitration of any Claim shall be conducted in the State of California, city of Los Angeles, and the prevailing party shall be awarded reimbursement for any/all applicable fees (including but not limited to: counsel, experts and witnesses). Each party shall pay the fees and costs of its own counsel, experts and witnesses.
Choice of Law - This Agreement concerns a transaction in interstate commerce, and therefore shall be governed by the United States Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Â§ 1 et seq. The FAA’s provisions, not state law, govern all questions of whether a dispute is subject to arbitration.
Exception - Any claim or action for indemnification, contribution, interpleader or injunctive relief arising out of a Claim shall not be subject to arbitration.
Severability - If any provision of these Terms is declared or found to be unlawful, unenforceable or void, such provision will be ineffective only to the extent that it is found unlawful, unenforceable or void, and the remainder of the provision and all other provisions shall remain fully enforceable except that if for some reason this prohibition on class action waiver cannot be enforced, then this agreement to arbitrate will not apply.
These Terms and policies incorporated herein ("Policies"), are the entire agreement between you and Blue Collar Elite. They supersede any and all prior or contemporaneous agreements between you and Blue Collar Elite relating to your use of the Blue Collar Elite Applications or the Services. Blue Collar Elite may assign these Terms in whole or in part, at any time. If any part of these Terms, other than class action waiver as set forth above, is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, it will not impact any other provision of these Terms, all of which will remain in full force and effect. Headings in these Terms are for convenience of reference only and shall not affect the interpretation or construction of these Terms. The failure of Blue Collar Elite to partially or fully exercise any rights or the waiver of Blue Collar Elite of any breach of these Terms by you, shall not prevent a subsequent exercise of such right by Blue Collar Elite or be deemed a waiver by Blue Collar Elite of any subsequent breach by you of the same or any other term of these Terms. The rights and remedies of Blue Collar Elite under these Terms, its Policies and any other applicable agreement between you and Blue Collar Elite shall be cumulative, and the exercise of any such right or remedy shall not limit Blue Collar Elite's right to exercise any other right or remedy.
