- ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
- Scope of the Arbitration Agreement. Mindful of the high cost of legal disputes, not only in dollars but in time and energy, both you and The Seasoned Carte agree that any legal dispute between you and The Seasoned Carte concerning or arising in any way out of a purchase from the Site, any communications between you and The Seasoned Carte, or your participation in any other program or service provided by The Seasoned Carte shall be resolved through binding individual arbitration unless you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement using the process explained below. You understand and agree that you are waiving your right to sue or go to court to assert or defend your rights. However, either you or The Seasoned Carte may bring any individual claim in small claims court consistent with the jurisdictional and dollar limits that may apply, as long as it is brought and maintained as an individual claim. The term "dispute" means any dispute, action, claim, or other controversy between you and The Seasoned Carte whether in contract, warranty, tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, or any other legal or equitable basis. "Dispute" will be given the broadest possible meaning allowable under law.
- Informal Dispute Resolution. Either party asserting a dispute shall first try in good faith to resolve it by providing written notice as specified below to the other party describing the facts and circumstances (including any relevant documentation) and allowing the receiving party 30 days in which to respond. Notice shall be made by first class or registered mail (1) to The Seasoned Carte, Attention: Legal Department, 200 Park Avenue 35F, New York NY 10166-0130, or (2) to you at the billing (or email) address on file with The Seasoned Carte. Both you and The Seasoned Carte agree that this dispute resolution procedure is a condition precedent that must be satisfied before initiating any arbitration against the other party.
- Right to Opt Out of this Arbitration Agreement. You may opt out of this Arbitration Agreement within the first 30 days after the earliest of the first time you (a) make a purchase from The Seasoned Carte.com; or (b) sign up for any program or service provided by The Seasoned Carte. You may also opt out of this Arbitration Agreement within 30 days after we notify you regarding a material change to this Arbitration Agreement. You may opt out by sending an email to The Seasoned Carte at Contact Us
- How Arbitration Works. Either party may initiate arbitration, which shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") pursuant to its Consumer Arbitration Rules ("AAA Rules"), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. The AAA Rules are available on AAA's website www.adr.org, or by calling AAA at (800) 778-7879. Unless you and The Seasoned Carte agree to conduct arbitration by teleconference, videoconference, or otherwise, any arbitration hearing shall take place in New York, New York. Except for a dispute determined by the arbitrator to be frivolous or initiated in bad faith, The Seasoned Carte will pay all filing, administrative, arbitrator, and hearing costs up to a total amount of $5,000 and waives any rights it may have to recover an award of attorneys' fees and expenses against you.
- Waiver of Right to Bring Class Action and Representative Claims. All arbitrations shall proceed on an individual basis. YOU AND THE SEASONED CARTE ALSO AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER IN ARBITRATION ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS RESPECTIVE INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES AND IN SO DOING YOU AND The Seasoned Carte HEREBY WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY, TO ASSERT OR PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS ACTION ARBITRATION, ANY PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL LAWSUIT OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ARBITRATION, AND ANY JOINT OR CONSOLIDATED LAWSUIT OR JOINT OR CONSOLIDATED ARBITRATION OF ANY KIND. The arbitrator is empowered to resolve the dispute with the same remedies available in court, including public injunctive relief. If a court decides that the limitations of this particular paragraph regarding class action waiver are deemed invalid or unenforceable, any putative class, private attorney general, or representative action must be brought in a court of proper jurisdiction and not in arbitration.
- Governing Law and Other Terms. This Arbitration Agreement shall be governed by, and interpreted, construed, and enforced in accordance with, the Federal Arbitration Act and other applicable federal law. To the extent state law applies to any aspect of this Arbitration Agreement, or to any disputes and claims that are covered by the Arbitration Agreement, the law of the state of your residence (determined by your billing address on file with The Seasoned Carte) will govern. We will provide notice of any material changes to this Arbitration Agreement. Except as set forth above with respect to the class action waiver, if any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable, it will not invalidate the remaining portions of the Arbitration Agreement. Only the arbitrator is authorized to make determinations as to the scope, validity, or enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement, including whether any dispute falls within its scope. However, the parties agree that any issue concerning the validity of the class action/representative waiver above must be decided by a court, and an arbitrator does not have authority to consider the validity of the waiver. This Arbitration Agreement survives the end of the relationship between you and The Seasoned Carte, including without limitation termination of your membership or participation in any The Seasoned Carte loyalty program or contest or promotion, cancellation or deletion of your The Seasoned Carte account, opt-out of marketing, or end of participation in any other program or service that we offer.
