The validity, interpretation and performance of this EULA shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Ohio. Furthermore, in no event will the terms of this section limit RIDGID’s ability to investigate complaints or reported violations of this EULA or to take any action RIDGID deems necessary and appropriate to mitigate actions against RIDGID, including reporting any suspected unlawful activity to law enforcement officials, regulators, or other third parties.
- Informal Resolution. If you have any dispute with RIDGID or any related third party, arising out of, relating to, or connected with the Software, you agree to contact RIDGID, at the address noted below; provide a brief, written description of the dispute and your contact information (including your username, if your dispute relates to an account); and give RIDGID thirty (30) days within which to resolve the dispute to your satisfaction. If RIDGID does not resolve the dispute through good faith negotiations under this informal process, you may pursue the dispute in accordance with the arbitration agreement below or in small claims court as described above.
- Class Action Waiver. YOU HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT YOU MAY HAVE TO A COURT OR TO SERVE AS A REPRESENTATIVE, AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR IN ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS OF CLAIMANTS, IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING AGAINST US OR RELATED THIRD PARTIES ARISING OUT OF, RELATING TO, OR CONNECTED WITH THIS EULA; ARBITRATION CAN THUS DECIDE ONLY YOUR INDIVIDUAL CLAIMS; THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN THE CLAIMS OF OTHER PERSONS OR PARTIES WHO MAY BE SIMILARLY SITUATED.
- Arbitration Agreement. Any claims by RIDGID, or claims by you that are not resolved by the informal resolution procedure or in small claims court as provided above, arising out of, relating to, or connected with this EULA or this Software must be asserted individually in binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (including utilizing desk, phone or video conference proceedings where appropriate and permitted to mitigate costs of travel). This EULA and each of its parts evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce, and the Federal Arbitration Act (9 USC §1, et. seq.) will apply in all cases and govern the interpretation and enforcement of the arbitration rules and arbitration proceedings. The arbitration shall be held at a location determined by AAA pursuant to the Rules and Procedures (provided such location is reasonably convenient for you), or at such other location as may be mutually agreed by the you and RIDGID. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. In addition to and notwithstanding the terms stated above, the following will apply to your dispute(s): (1) the arbitrator, and not any federal, state, provincial or local court or agency, will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this EULA including any claim that all or any part of this EULA is void or voidable; (2) the arbitrator will not have the power to conduct any form of class or collective arbitration nor join or consolidate claims by or for individuals; (3) the arbitrator's decision shall be controlled by the terms and conditions of this EULA and any of the other agreements referenced herein that you may have entered into in connection with the Services; (4) the arbitrator shall apply Ohio law consistent with the AAA and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; (5) to the extent permitted by law, the arbitrator shall not have the power to award punitive, incidental or consequential damages against you or RIDGID; (6) in the event that the administrative fees and deposits that must be paid to initiate arbitration against RIDGID exceed $125 USD for claims less than $10,000 or $375 for claims greater than $10,000 but less than $75,000, and you are unable (or not required under the applicable Rules and Procedures) to pay any fees and deposits that exceed this amount, RIDGID agrees to pay them and/or forward them on your behalf, subject to ultimate allocation by the arbitrator. In addition, if you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, RIDGID will pay as much of the your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive; and (7) with the exception of subpart (3) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures established by AAA, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (3) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this Arbitration Provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor RIDGID shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute.
