- ARBITRATION, GOVERNING LAW & CLASS ACTION WAIVER
17.1 Arbitration is the submission of a dispute to an unbiased, neutral third person (an arbitrator) who makes a binding decision after both parties have an opportunity to be heard. The arbitrator can grant any relief that a court can, but the proceedings are designed to be simpler and quicker than litigation.
17.2 Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution: The parties hereto shall attempt to resolve any dispute, controversy, difference or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement by negotiation in good faith. You must contact the Company to explain your complaint to allow the Company the chance to resolve it prior to commencing arbitration. You must provide your name, your LoveAbility.org username, your address, a written description of the dispute and a description of the specific relief you seek. Email the information to LoveAbility RE: Arbitration at [email protected]
17.3 If, notwithstanding, such dispute cannot be resolved, the exclusive means of resolving such dispute shall be BINDING ARBITRATION administered by the America Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the Consumer Arbitration Rules. The one exception to the exclusivity of arbitration is your right to bring an individual claim against the Company in a small-claims court of competent jurisdiction.
17.4 Whether you choose small-claims court or arbitration, you may not under any circumstances commence or maintain against the Company any class action, class arbitration or other representative action or proceeding.
17.5 BY USING THE WEBSITE OR THE SERVICE FOR ANY PURPOSE, YOU AGREE TO THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.

YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR, NOT A JUDGE OR JURY, SHALL DETERMINE YOUR RIGHTS AND MAKE A DECISION ON ALL ISSUES OF THE ARBITRATION. YOU ARE ENTITLED TO A FAIR HEARING BEFORE THE ARBITRATOR.
17.6 ARBITRATION PROCEDURE
17.6.1 To commence any such arbitration proceeding, the party commencing the arbitration must provide the other party with written notice of any and all claims forming the basis of such right in sufficient detail to inform the other party of the substance of such claims. In no event, shall this notice for arbitration be made after the date when institution of legal or equitable proceedings based on such claims would be barred by the applicable statute of limitations. The arbitration will be conducted by a single neutral arbitrator and in accordance with the then-current Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (AAA). The parties are entitled to representation by an attorney or other representative of their choosing. The arbitrator shall have the power to enter any award that could be entered by a judge of the trial court. You may initiate arbitration in either Houston, Texas or in the federal judicial district that includes your address that you provided in the Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution process. The award shall be binding and the Parties agree to abide by and perform any award rendered by the arbitrator. The arbitrator shall issue the award in writing and therein state the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. Responsibility of Fees is as outlined in the Consumer’s Abritration Rule’s Costs of Arbitration.
17.6.2 Please visit AAA’s website at http://www.adr.org for more information and read AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules found on their website.
17.7 If any clause within this Arbitration Agreement is found unenforceable or invalid, that clause shall be eliminated to the minimum extent necessary and the remainder of this Arbitration Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect.
17.8 This Arbitration Agreement shall survive the termination of your account with the Company and your use of the Website and Service.
