The Parties hereby expressly agreed that any Claim must be brought in the respective party’s individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, collective, representative, multiple plaintiff, or similar proceeding ("Class Action"). The parties expressly waive any ability to maintain any Class Action in any forum. The arbitrator shall not have authority to combine or aggregate similar claims or conduct any Class Action nor make an award to any person or entity not a party to the arbitration. Any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. THE PARTIES UNDERSTAND THAT THEY WOULD HAVE HAD A RIGHT TO LITIGATE THROUGH A COURT, TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE THEIR CASE AND TO BE PARTY TO A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. HOWEVER, THEY UNDERSTAND AND CHOOSE TO HAVE ANY CLAIMS DECIDED INDIVIDUALLY, THROUGH ARBITRATION. THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK SHALL GOVERN THIS AGREEMENT.
Before you take a dispute to arbitration or to small claims court, you must first contact us by writing us and describing (a) the nature and basis of the Claim or dispute; and (b) the specific relief sought ("Demand") and give us an opportunity to resolve the dispute. Similarly, before ATechline takes a dispute to arbitration, we must first attempt to resolve it by contacting you. If you and ATechline do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 60 days from the date you or ATechline is notified by the other of a dispute, you or ATechline may commence an arbitration proceeding. If your Claim is for $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, by telephone, or by an in-person hearing as established by the rules of the arbitration administrator.
Information about the arbitration process and the AAA’s Arbitration Rules and its fees are available from the AAA on the Internet at www.adr.org. By notifying ATechline within twenty days after commencing an arbitration proceeding, you may elect to relieve both parties to the arbitration of confidentiality obligations.
The amount of any settlement offer made by ATechline shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you are entitled. After ATechline receives notice that you have commenced arbitration, it will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee required by the arbitration administrator, unless your Claim is for greater than $75,000.
If, after finding in your favor in any respect on the merits of your Claim, the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of ATechline’s last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected, then ATechline will pay you the amount of the award or $10,000 ("the alternative payment"), whichever is greater.
If ATechline prevails before the arbitrator, and if we show that you acted in bad faith in bringing your claim, then ATechline may seek to recover the AAA’s fees and expenses of the arbitrator from you.
