Governing Law and Jurisdiction
Disputes and Arbitration Agreement
The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law will apply. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, except as expressly limited by these Terms, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and must follow the terms of these Terms as a court would.
WE EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. Unless we both agree otherwise, the arbitrator(s) may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative, consolidated or class proceeding. If the requirements of this paragraph are found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void except for the waiver of any right to a jury trial described below. Without limiting the foregoing, if for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, WE EACH HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. We also both agree that either of us may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
If a dispute arises, we strongly encourage you to first contact our Customer Service Department. We value our relationships with our users and will try to resolve your claims informally and quickly.
If your dispute is not resolved by our Customer Service Department, before beginning arbitration, you must send a written notice describing the claim to our Compliance Officer at the following address:
Attention to: Jose Antonio Garcia Sam
Title: Compliance Officer.
Address: 5433 Westheimer Rd. Suite 1100, Houston, Texas 77056
If your dispute has not been resolved within 30 days of sending the notice to our Compliance Officer, you may then commence mediation and, if necessary, arbitration, according to the following procedures:
- Mandatory Mediation. If your dispute cannot be resolved through direct discussions pursuant to the process described above, then You and We agree to endeavor first to settle the dispute by mediation administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Mediation Procedures before resorting to arbitration.
- Mandatory Arbitration
- Any dispute that cannot be resolved through mediation pursuant to the process described above shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
- If a dispute proceeds to arbitration, such arbitration shall be conducted according to the following procedures and governing law:
- Claims shall be heard by a single arbitrator, unless the claim amount exceeds $100,000.00 (One Hundred Thousand Dollars), in which case the dispute shall be heard by a panel of three arbitrators.
- The place of arbitration shall be Houston, Texas.
- The arbitration shall be governed by the laws of the State of Texas.
- Each party will, upon written request of the other party, promptly provide the other with copies of all relevant documents. There shall be no other discovery allowed.
- The arbitration will be based on the submission of documents and there shall be no in-person or oral hearing.
- The arbitrator(s) will have no authority to award punitive or other damages not measured by the prevailing party’s actual damages, except as may be required by statute. The arbitrator(s) shall not award consequential damages in any arbitration initiated under this section. Any award in an arbitration initiated under this clause shall be limited to monetary damages and shall include no injunction or direction to any party other than the direction to pay a monetary amount.
- Each party shall bear its own costs and expenses and an equal share of the arbitrators’ and administrative fees of arbitration.
- Failure or refusal of a party to pay its required share of the deposits for arbitrator compensation or administrative charges shall constitute a waiver by that party to present evidence or cross-examine witnesses. In such event, the other party shall be required to present evidence and legal argument as the arbitrator(s) may require for the making of an award. Such waiver shall not allow for a default judgment against the non-paying party in the absence of evidence presented as provided for above.
- If the claim amount exceeds $100,000.00 (One Hundred Thousand Dollars), then the award of the arbitrator(s), if any, shall be accompanied by a reasoned opinion.
- Confidentiality. Except as may be required by law, neither a party nor a mediator or arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any mediation or arbitration hereunder without the prior written consent of both parties.
