PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT AND TO HAVE A JURY HEAR YOUR CLAIMS. IT CONTAINS PROCEDURES FOR MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
IF YOU ARE A U.S. RESIDENT, YOU ALSO AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISIONS:
WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL: By electing to resolve all claims and disputes via binding arbitration, THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO APPEAR IN COURT AND HOLD A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. Should any litigation arise between you and Graphic Rhythm Designs in any court, state or federal, to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND Graphic Rhythm Designs WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, and elect the dispute to be resolved by a judge.
ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS: Arbitration is a much quicker, cheaper, and more informal process than a lawsuit. In arbitration proceedings, the case is decided by an arbitrator, instead of a judge or a jury. The arbitrator can award the same damages and relief that a court can, and his decision is final and binding. In the United States, arbitration procedures are governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. It is recommended that you familiarize yourself with that legislation, or consult with an attorney, in order to get an idea of how arbitration procedures work.
OPT-OUT OF ARBITRATION: You have the right to opt out of this arbitration agreement by emailing us at email@example.com and providing the following information:
Your phone number; and
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE.
If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced.
