We hope to make you a happy and satisfied customer, but if there’s a dispute that needs to be resolved, this section outlines what’s expected of both of us.
- Arbitration. You and buyamericanshrimp.com agree to arbitrate all disputes between the parties, except as provided in this subsection (b). Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This arbitration agreement covers any dispute arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, even if the claim arises or may arise before or after the term. For purposes of this arbitration provision, references to ” buyamericanshrimp.com,” “you,” and “us” includes our Associates. This agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision.
Notwithstanding the arbitration agreement set forth in the prior paragraph, if you fail to pay in full any amounts you owe when they are due, buyamericanshrimp.com may assign your account for collection, and buyamericanshrimp.com and/or the collection agency may pursue in court claims limited to the collection of past due amounts and any interest or cost of collection permitted by law or these Terms. (However, buyamericanshrimp.com disclaims any and all liability, and you relieve buyamericanshrimp.com from any and all liability, with respect to the conduct of any such collection agency.) In addition, buyamericanshrimp.com may seek injunctive relief in any court with respect to any violation of the patent, trademark, service mark, copyright, trade secret, and/or other intellectual property rights of buyamericanshrimp.com or of any third party. YOU MAY CHOOSE TO PURSUE YOUR CLAIM IN COURT AND NOT BY ARBITRATION if: (a) your claim qualifies for small claims court in a location where jurisdiction and venue over you and buyamericanshrimp.com is proper, in which case you may initiate proceedings in small claims court; or (b) YOU OPT OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS FROM THE DATE YOU FIRST ACCESS OR OTHERWISE USE THIS SITE OR ANY INFORMATION OR MATERIALS CONTAINED ON THE SITE (THE “OPT-OUT DEADLINE”). You may opt out by calling buyamericanshrimp.com customer service department, at 1-855-974-7467, before the Opt-Out Deadline.
Upon you or buyamericanshrimp.com filing an arbitration demand, buyamericanshrimp.com will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees, unless your claim exceeds $75,000. If you initiate an arbitration in which you seek more than $75,000 in damages, the AAA rules will govern the payment of these fees. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration provision are for a court to decide. Unless buyamericanshrimp.com and you agree otherwise in writing, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) in which your most recent billing address (as provided to buyamericanshrimp.com) is located.
One arbitrator, who is selected under the AAA Rules and who has expertise in consumer disputes in the food industry, will conduct the arbitration. If no arbitrator possessing such expertise is available, then the arbitration will be conducted by a single arbitrator who is selected by the mutual written approval of you and buyamericanshrimp.com. The decisions of the arbitrator will be binding and conclusive on all parties. Judgment upon any award of the arbitrator may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction. This provision will be specifically enforceable in any court. THE ARBITRATOR MUST FOLLOW THIS AGREEMENT AND CAN AWARD THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF AS A COURT (INCLUDING ATTORNEYS’ FEES).
YOU AND BUYAMERICANSHRIMP.COM AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. NEITHER YOU NOR BUYAMERICANSHRIMP.COM SHALL BE A MEMBER IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING, AND THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF WARRANTED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM.
IF YOU TIMELY OPT OUT OF THE ARBITRATION PROVISION IN THE MANNER DESCRIBED ABOVE, THEN THE WAIVER OF THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION WILL NOT APPLY TO YOU. BUYAMERICANSHRIMP.COM DOES NOT CONSENT TO CLASS ARBITRATION; ACCORDINGLY, IF A COURT REFUSES TO ENFORCE THIS SUBSECTION (c), THEN THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE SHALL BE UNENFORCEABLE AS TO YOU. WHETHER A CLAIM PROCEEDS IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION, YOU AND BUYAMERICANSHRIMP.COM HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
