14. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
Most of Your questions and concerns can be addressed by contacting Us at email@example.com. For any dispute relating to the Site, You agree to first contact Us and attempt to resolve the dispute informally.
A. In the event We cannot resolve the dispute, YOU AND WE agree to resolve any disputes through binding arbitration or small claims court instead of through courts of general jurisdiction. yOU AND WE agree that any arbitration will take place on an individual basis only. YOU AND WE agree to waive our rights to a JURY trial and to participate in CLASS ACTIONS OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDINGS. This Arbitration Agreement (“A.A.”) shall survive the termination of the Terms and is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. This A.A. shall be interpreted broadly, and it includes any dispute You have with Us that arises out of or relates in any way to the Site or to Your relationship with Us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or otherwise. However, this A.A. does not preclude You from bringing an individual action against Us in small claims court or from informing any federal, state or local agencies of Your dispute. Such agencies may be able to seek relief on Your behalf.
B. To initiate arbitration, send a written Notice of Claim by certified mail to: Legal Department, P.O. Box 110656, Nashville, TN 37122-0656. The Notice must describe the dispute and the relief sought. If We do not resolve the dispute within 30 days of receipt of the Notice, You may start an arbitration with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). You can contact the AAA and obtain a free copy of the rules and forms necessary to start an arbitration proceeding at www.adr.org or 1-800-778-7879. We will reimburse You for a filing fee paid to the AAA, and if You are unable to pay a filing fee, We will pay it if You send a written request by certified mail to the Legal Department.
C. The arbitration shall be administered by the AAA in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“Rules”) in effect at the time the arbitration is started and as modified by this A.A. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this A.A. and shall decide all issues, with the exception that issues relating to the enforceability of this A.A. may be decided by a court. If Your dispute is for $10,000 or less, You may conduct the arbitration by submitting documents to the arbitrator or by telephone. If Your dispute is for more than $10,000, Your right to hearings will be determined by the Rules. Unless otherwise agreed, any hearings will take place in the county/parish of Your mailing address. We will pay all filing, administration and arbitrator fees for any arbitration, unless Your dispute is found by the arbitrator to have been frivolous or brought for an improper purpose under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b). In that case, the Rules govern payment of such fees.
D. The arbitrator shall issue a decision including the facts and law upon which his/her decision is based. If the arbitrator finds in Your favor and issues a damages award that is greater than the value of the last settlement offer made by Us or if We made no settlement offer, and the arbitrator awards You any damages, We will: (1) pay You the amount of the award or $2,500, whichever is greater; and (2) pay Your attorney, if any, the attorney's fees and expenses reasonably incurred by him/her in the arbitration. While that right to attorney’s fees/expenses is in addition to any right You may have under applicable law, neither You nor Your attorney may recover duplicate awards of attorney’s fees/expenses. We hereby waive any right We may have under applicable law to recover attorney’s fees/expenses from You if We prevail in the arbitration.
E. If You or We seek declaratory or injunctive relief, that relief can be awarded only to the extent necessary to provide You or Us relief. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST the OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT IN A PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Unless You and We agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate Your dispute with the dispute of any other person and may not preside over any form of representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision of this A.A. is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this A.A. is null and void.
15. CLAIM LIMITATION.
Unless otherwise allowed by applicable law, any claim related to the Site shall be brought within one year of the events giving rise to the claim. Failure to assert any such claim during that one-year period results in the claim being forever waived and barred.
16. SEVERABILITY & WAIVER.
If any provision of the Terms is found to be invalid or unenforceable, it should be modified to the extent possible to make it valid or enforceable without losing its intent and purpose. If no such modification is possible, the provision should be severed from the Terms. Any failure to enforce a provision of the Terms shall not be deemed a waiver of that provision.
17. GOVERNING LAW & ENTIRE AGREEMENT.
The Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Tennessee, without regard to conflicts of law provisions. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. The Terms constitute the entire agreement between You and Us with respect to Solution Hub and supersede any prior or contemporaneous agreements.
Asurion may share both Your personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information with its affiliates, subsidiaries, partners and other third parties, such as third parties who help operate the Site and its related databases.
NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION:
Asurion gathers certain broad, non-personally identifiable information ("Non-PII") about use of the Site, including the number of unique visitors to the Site, the frequency with which they visit the Site and the services preferred by those visitors on the Site. Asurion looks at the data regarding use of the Site in summary form, rather than on an individual basis. Asurion gathers this Non-PII data so it can learn, for example, which pages of the Site are the most and least viewed by visitors and which third-party websites are referring visitors to the Site. The Non-PII data helps Asurion determine the extent to which visitors use certain parts of the Site and allows Asurion to tailor the Site in the future. In connection with these activities, Asurion may use the following standard technologies to collect information:
PIXEL TAGS: Pixel tags, also known as beacons or clear GIFs, help Asurion better manage content on the Site by informing it of what content is effective. Pixel tags are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, pixel tags are embedded invisibly on Web pages.
IP ADDRESSES: Asurion collects and analyzes traffic on the Site by keeping track of the IP addresses of its visitors. An IP address is the unique numeric identifier assigned to each computer browser accessing the Internet. An IP address, by itself, cannot identify You personally. However, when combined with other information provided by Your Internet service provider, Your IP address can be used to identify the computer originating a message.
PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION:
PROTECTION OF PII:
Asurion uses commercially reasonable safeguards to maintain the confidentiality of Your PII. Asurion will take appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect Your PII against: (1) accidental or unlawful destruction; (b) accidental loss; and (c) unauthorized alteration, disclosure or access. However, no security systems are impenetrable, and Asurion cannot guarantee the security of the Site or its databases, nor can Asurion guarantee that the information that You supply to Asurion will not be intercepted while being transmitted over the Internet.
SHARING OF PII AND NON-PII:
For the purpose of operating its business, Asurion may transfer PII and Non-PII to service providers who use that information only to provide services to Asurion. For example, service providers may handle e-mail distribution, market research, information analysis and promotions management on behalf of Asurion. Asurion may also share PII and Non-PII in order to administer a Site feature. Asurion provides its service providers with the information they need to perform their services and works with them to protect Your information. In order to better understand Your preferences and better serve You, Asurion may combine information that it receives from You with information that it has or that it receives from other sources, transactions and communications. This may include information from the Site, as well as information from Asurion's contractors, direct mailings, events or other marketing efforts. Asurion also may combine the information that it receives from You with data that is publicly available and data that it receives from other reputable sources.
Asurion reserves the right to share PII that You provide to Asurion with legal authorities if it is, in the sole opinion of Asurion, necessary to investigate, prevent or otherwise take action regarding suspected fraud, situations involving threats or potential harm or if otherwise required by law (such as by a subpoena, court order or other legal means). In the event that Asurion reasonably believes that You have violated any of the terms or policies governing Your use of the Site, Asurion reserves the right to use any information it has collected about You in connection with any investigations it makes or are made by any agents on its behalf.
THIRD PARTY SITES:
The Site may contain links to other websites, including websites operated by third parties. Please be aware that those websites may collect PII from or about You and Non-PII about Your visit. You should review the privacy policies that are posted on any website that You visit, before using the website and providing PII to the website. Asurion is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of any websites that may be mentioned on, or accessible from, the Site.
SECURITY OF INFORMATION:
Information submitted via the Internet, including through a web page or e-mail is subject to interception or incorrect routing, and the Internet is not a fully secure communications channel. Please consider this prior to submitting any information to Asurion via the Site. While Asurion follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100 percent secure. Therefore, while Asurion strives to use commercially acceptable means to protect Your personal information, Asurion cannot guarantee its absolute security.
