ARBITRATION, JURY WAIVER, AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
Please read the following ARBITRATION AGREEMENT carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with Vetchy and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from Vetchy.
General. The parties shall attempt in good faith to resolve any dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service promptly by negotiation between individuals who have authority to settle the controversy. If good faith negotiations do not lead to an amicable resolution within thirty (30) business days of commencing negotiations, any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service, or the breach thereof, shall be determined by arbitration administered by the International Centre for Dispute Resolution in accordance with its International Arbitration Rules. The tribunal will consist of one arbitrator. The arbitration will take place in the city and country where Vetchy’s headquarters is located. If this location is not feasible, the arbitration shall occur in a location of Vetchy’s choosing. The language to be used in the arbitral proceedings will be English. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND VETCHY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR JURY. You and Vetchy are instead choosing to have claims and disputes resolved by arbitration. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient, and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In any litigation between you and Vetchy over whether to vacate or enforce an arbitration award, YOU AND VETCHY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, and elect instead to have the dispute be resolved by a judge.
Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. YOU AND VETCHY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. If, however, this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither you nor Vetchy is entitled to arbitration, and all claims and disputes will be resolved pursuant to Section 20(e).
Opt-out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Section by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address: 10250 Constellation Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90067, postmarked within thirty (30) calendar days of first accepting these Terms of Service. You must include (i) your name and residence address, (ii) the email address and/or telephone number associated with your account, and (iii) a clear statement that you want to opt out of these Terms of Service’s arbitration provisions.
Exclusive Venue. If you send the opt-out notice in Section 21(d), and/or in any circumstances where the foregoing arbitration agreement permits either you or Vetchy to litigate any dispute arising out of or relating to the subject matter of this arbitrations agreement or these Terms of Service in court, then the foregoing arbitration agreement will not apply to either party, and both you and Vetchy agree that any judicial proceeding will be brought in the state or federal courts located in California.
This arbitration agreement will survive any termination of your relationship with Vetchy.
