Dispute Resolution; Arbitration
We believe we will be able to resolve most disputes or issues you may have with the Products purchased from Phatmoto.com. In the unlikely event we are not able to resolve a dispute or issue, we prefer to specify now what each of us should expect in order to avoid any confusion later. Accordingly, you agree to the following resolution process.
Since we always prefer to find ways to satisfy you as quickly and efficiently as possible, before initiating any arbitration proceeding, you agree to first discuss the matter informally with us for at least 30-days. To do that, please send your full name and contact information, your concern and your proposed solution by mail to us at: Nationwide Access, LLC, 15825 Stagg Street, Van Nuys, California 91406, Attn: Legal Department.
If we are unable to mutually agree upon a resolution after the 30-day period, you agree that any claim you may have against us regarding these Terms and Conditions of Sale will be resolved through binding arbitration administered by JAMS and governed by the then current JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. It is important to us that we address any issues you might have promptly. To help us do that, you agree to begin any arbitration within one (1) year after your claim arose; otherwise, your claim is waived.
We prefer to resolve our issues with you directly and, accordingly, you agree to arbitrate with us only in your individual capacity, not as a representative or member of a class. As such, your claims may not be joined with any other claims and there will be no authority for any dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or brought by a purported class representative.
You agree that arbitration will be exclusively held in Los Angeles County, California and that each party will be responsible for its own costs, including paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules. In order to select an arbitrator, each party agrees to provide a list of two available arbitrators that have experience with the subject matter. Each party may strike one of the names on the other party’s list. The parties will select an arbitrator out of the remaining two arbitrator names. If the parties cannot mutually agree on one arbitrator, JAMS will choose the arbitrator randomly from the two remaining arbitrators. It is important that you understand that the arbitrator's decision will be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. If you're not sure what all of this means, of course please feel free to ask an attorney.
Governing Law and Forum
Any and all claims, causes of action or disputes (regardless of theory) between you and us arising out of or related to this Agreement will be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict or choice of law principles.
You agree that any claims, causes of action or disputes not subject to the Dispute Resolution; Arbitration section above, will be brought exclusively in courts located within the county of Los Angeles, California, and you agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of such courts, for any actions. You further agree that, regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, you must file any such claim or cause of action within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. YOU ALSO HEREBY KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY AND INTENTIONALLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO REQUEST A TRIAL BY JURY FOR ANY ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE.
All claims that you bring against us must be resolved in accordance with this section. All claims filed or brought contrary to this section will be considered improperly filed. Should you file a claim contrary to this section, we may recover the full amount of our attorneys’ fees and costs provided that we have notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim and you have failed to properly withdraw the claim.
