18. Governing Law
These Terms and any disputes arising under or related to these Terms (whether for breach of contract, tortious conduct or otherwise) will be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, without reference to its conflicts of law principles.
This section shall not apply to residents of New Jersey.
19. Dispute Resolution
YOU AND BASKIN-ROBBINS AGREE TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT, SUCH AS ACCESS TO DISCOVERY, ALSO MAY BE UNAVAILABLE OR LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
You hereby agree that any dispute between you and BR IP Holder, LLC and its agents, employees, officers, directors, principals, successors, assigns, subsidiaries or affiliates (collectively for purposes of this section, “Baskin-Robbins“) arising from or relating to (a) your use of the BR Online Services, (b) these Terms and their interpretation or the breach, termination or validity thereof and (c)the relationships which result from these Terms, including disputes about the validity, scope or enforceability of this arbitration provision (collectively, “Covered Disputes“), will be settled by binding arbitration in Suffolk County, Commonwealth of Massachusetts administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules, in effect on the date thereof. Prior to initiating any arbitration, the initiating party will give the other party at least 60-days’ advanced written notice of its intent to file for arbitration. Baskin-Robbins will provide such notice by e-mail to your e-mail address on file with Baskin-Robbins and you must provide such notice by e-mail to email@example.com with “Legal Dispute” appearing in the subject line. During such 60-day notice period, the parties will endeavor to settle amicably by mutual discussions any Covered Disputes. Failing such amicable settlement and expiration of the notice period, either party may initiate arbitration.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. If, however, you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Baskin-Robbins will pay as much of the filing, administration and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive for you. If the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration are frivolous, you agree to reimburse Baskin-Robbins for all fees associated with the arbitration that Baskin-Robbins paid on your behalf, which you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA’s rules.
The arbitrator will have the power to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity and any award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator will not, however, have the power to award punitive or exemplary damages, the right to which each party hereby waives, and the arbitrator will apply applicable law and the provisions of these Terms and the failure to do so will be deemed an excess of arbitral authority and grounds for judicial review. Baskin-Robbins and you agree that any Covered Dispute will be submitted to arbitration on an individual basis only. Neither Baskin-Robbins nor you are entitled to arbitrate any Covered Dispute as a class, representative or private attorney action and the arbitrator(s) will have no authority to proceed on a class, representative or private attorney general basis.
If any provision of the agreement to arbitrate in this section is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced (but in no case will there be a class, representative or private attorney general arbitration). If these arbitration provisions are found to be entirely unenforceable, then all disputes between us arising under the Terms or your use of the BR Online Services will be subject to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Boston, Massachusetts, and you and we hereby submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of these courts. Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, notice on any claim arising from or related to these Terms must be made within one (1) year after such claim arose or be forever barred. For purposes of this section, these Terms and related transactions will be subject to and governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA).
