Agreement to Arbitrate..
Arbitration Procedures. All Disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator selected jointly by the parties, whose decision will be final, except for a limited right of appeal under the FAA. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted by JAMS pursuant to its then current Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those rules, or, where appropriate, pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. All applicable JAMS’ rules and procedures are available at the JAMS website www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. If conducted in person, the arbitration shall take place in the United States county where you live. The parties shall cooperate in good faith in the voluntary and informal exchange of all non-privileged documents and other information (including electronically stored information) relevant to the Dispute immediately after commencement of the arbitration. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay a proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. This Agreement to Arbitrate shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
Arbitration and Attorneys’ Fees.Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees and costs will be governed by the JAMS’ rules and governing law, except that Meade will pay such fees and costs (excluding reasonable attorneys’ fees) for you for claims totaling less than $20,000 unless the arbitrator determines that the claims are frivolous. Meade will not seek its attorneys’ fees or costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines your claims or defenses are frivolous.
Exceptions to the Agreement to Arbitrate. Either party may bring a claim in a small claims court located in the United States county where you live, if the claim is permitted by such court’s rules and is within such court’s jurisdiction. Moreover, either party may bring a lawsuit in court solely for injunctive relief to: (i) stop the unauthorized use or abuse of the Services; (ii) stop intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights), or (iii) protect proprietary interests. The parties agree that an actual or threatened violation of intellectual property rights and confidential and proprietary information will cause irreparable harm and that remedies at law would be inadequate to redress any actual or threatened violation thereof.
