17. Disputes.

A. Informal Resolution.  If a dispute arises between You and any Blitz Medical Entity and or Affiliate thereof (collectively “Blitz Entities”), you agree to first provide Blitz Entities with notice of your complaint via email to info@bunionsurgery.com so that the parties may attempt to resolve the dispute informally within sixty (60) days from the date your complaint is received.

B. Applicable Law and Venue.  Except as otherwise provided herein, You and Blitz Entities each agree that these Terms of Use and the relationship between the parties shall be governed by, construed, and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions.  Except as provided below, You and Blitz MedicalBlitz Entities agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Los Angeles County, California, including for any action seeking to compel arbitration or vacate an arbitral award, and consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts. The parties agree to waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over the parties by such courts and to venue in such courts.

C. Arbitration Agreement.

  1. Arbitration. With the exception of class actions, small claims court filings, or actions for preliminary injunctive relief (as further discussed below), any other dispute of any kind between you and Blitz Entities arising under this Agreement or in connection with your use of the Service (“Dispute(s)”), if unresolved through the informal process outlined above, will be resolved by binding arbitration in Los Angeles County, California.  If you are an individual consumer using the Service primarily for personal reasons (“Individual Consumer”), as opposed to an individual accessing the Service for business purposes, and you are located within the United States, you may alternatively select your state of residence as the place of arbitration, but all other actions remain subject to the venue and choice of law provisions in Section 17.B.

    The arbitrator presiding over a Dispute will be a retired judge or justice of any state or federal court with substantial experience in the subject matter relevant to the matter in dispute and will follow California law, exclusive of conflict or choice of law rules, in adjudicating the dispute.  BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATE, YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT YOU HAVE TO A COURT OR JURY TRIAL.  

    The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the provision in the preceding paragraph with respect to applicable substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.

    The parties agree that the arbitrator presiding over a Dispute will be instructed, whenever practicable, to resolve threshold legal issues by way of motions filed by the parties. The parties also agree that they will follow JAMS’ streamlined arbitration rules and procedures then in effect in arbitrating any Dispute, except to the extent that the JAMS rules are inconsistent with this Section 17.C including the class action waiver described below. The JAMS rules are available at www.jamsadr.com.

    The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, will have exclusive authority to resolve all Disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of these Terms of Use, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of these Terms of Use is void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity, other than class relief. The arbitrator’s award will be written, and binding, on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. If you are an Individual Consumer, Blitz Entities will pay all arbitration administrative fees and fees for the arbitrator’s services, other than the $250 filing fee required for you to initiate a claim.

    If you are an Individual Consumer and the claim you wish to assert against us is for less than $10,000 then, at your election, (i) the arbitration may proceed in-person, by telephone, or by written briefs or (ii) you may in lieu of arbitration bring your claim in small claims court. If either party files a claim in state or federal court that is required by these Terms of Use to have been brought to arbitration, then the other party will be entitled to such party’s reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in successfully compelling arbitration.

    Both parties reserve the right to seek a preliminary injunction or temporary restraining order from a federal or state court located in Los Angeles County, California. However, after such request for relief has been adjudicated by such court, the remainder of the Dispute will be resolved by binding arbitration as set forth herein.
  2. Class Action Waiver. YOU AND BLITZ ENTITIES AGREE THAT DISPUTES WILL BE RESOLVED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND THAT ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT UNDER THESE TERMS OF USE OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PUTATIVE CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.  The parties further agree that they will not participate in any class action (existing or future) brought by any third party arising under this Agreement or in connection with the Service. 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 hereunder can proceed on a class-wide basis, then such class action is not subject to arbitration and must be litigated in state or federal court in Los Angeles County, California.
  3. Opt-Out. IF YOU ARE A NEW USER OF THE SERVICE, YOU CAN CHOOSE TO REJECT THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE PROVISION (“OPT-OUT”) BY EMAILING US AN OPT-OUT NOTICE TO INFO@BUNIONSURGERY.COM    (“OPT-OUT NOTICE”) OR VIA U.S. MAIL TO: Blitz Medical, Attn: Arbitration Opt-Out, 435 N. Roxbury Drive, Penthouse, Beverly Hills, CA  90210.  THE OPT-OUT NOTICE MUST BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN THIRTY (30) DAYS AFTER THE DATE YOU ACCEPT THESE TERMS FOR THE FIRST TIME.  IF YOU ARE NOT A NEW USER OF THE SERVICE, YOU HAVE UNTIL THIRTY (30) DAYS AFTER THE POSTING OF THE NEW TERMS TO SUBMIT AN ARBITRATION OPT-OUT NOTICE.

    In order to opt-out, you must email your name, address (including street address, city, state, and zip code), and email address(es) associated with your User account(s) to which the opt-out applies, and the date you started using the Service to: info@bunionsurgery.com.  This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the agreement to arbitrate.  If you opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, all other parts of these Terms of Use and its Disputes Section will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this agreement to arbitrate has no effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may have with us.
