  1. ARBITRATION PROVISION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS; PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE AGREEING TO THESE TERMS OF USE.

Agreement to Arbitrate.  Except as otherwise explicitly provided in this Arbitration Provision, DIVACS, together with its parent companies, wholly or majority-owned subsidiaries, affiliates, commonly-owned companies, successors, assigns, and any of these entities’ employees, officers, directors, and agents and their successors, assigns, affiliates, and service providers (collectively, the “Transaction Parties”) and you can elect to resolve any past, present, or future dispute or claim (“Dispute”) arising from or relating in any way to (i) the use of the Services, (ii) these Terms of Use, or (iii) the relationship between you and any Transaction Party in connection with any of the foregoing that cannot be resolved directly between you and a Transaction Party, by binding arbitration under the Consumer Arbitration Rules (“the Consumer Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), rather than in court. (Solely for purposes of this Arbitration Provision, the term Transaction Parties also includes any third party providing any goods and/or services in connection with the use of the Site and the Services or any of the foregoing on behalf of a Transaction Party, if that third party is named as a defendant along with a Transaction Party in the same proceeding or a related proceeding.) 

“Dispute” Defined. Except as otherwise explicitly provided in this Arbitration Provision, “Dispute” broadly includes, without limitation: any claims based in contract, statute, constitution, ordinance, tort, fraud, consumer rights, misrepresentation, equity, or any other legal theory; initial claims, counterclaims, cross-claims, and third-party claims; federal, state, and local claims; and claims which arose before the date of your use of the Services, including, but not limited to, any dispute or claim arising before the date you accessed the Site or the Services or agreed to these Terms of Use and any dispute or claim relating to (by way of example and not limitation): (i) the use, denial, or termination of the Services and/or the events leading up thereto; (ii) any disclosure, advertisement, application, solicitation, promotion, or oral or written statement, warranty, or representation made by or on behalf of a Transaction Party; (iii) any product or service provided by or through a Transaction Party or third parties in connection with the use of the Services or the relationship between you and a Transaction Party and any associated fees; (iv) a Transaction Party’s use or failure to protect any personal information you give a Transaction Party in connection with the use of the Services or your relationship with the Transaction Party; (v) enforcement of any and all of the obligations a party may have to another party in connection with the use of the Services or agreement governing the same; or (viii) compliance with applicable laws and/or regulations.

Exceptions to “Dispute.” Notwithstanding any of the foregoing: (i) disputes or controversies about the validity, enforceability, coverage, or scope of this Arbitration Provision or any part thereof are for a court and not an arbitrator to decide; however, disputes or controversies about these Terms of Use or your agreements governing the use of the Services or with Transaction Parties as a whole are for an arbitrator and not a court to decide; (ii) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of intellectual property rights, will not be subject to binding arbitration under this Arbitration Provision; and (iii) any party may proceed with their individual claims in small claims court (or an equivalent court) if that option is available in the applicable jurisdiction and the amount in controversy falls within the small claims court’s (or the equivalent court’s) jurisdictional limits; but if that action is transferred, removed, or appealed to a different court, arbitration can be elected.  Moreover, this Arbitration Provision will not apply to any Dispute that was already pending in court before this Arbitration Provision took effect.

Governing Law. The Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), 9 U.S.C. 1 et seq., and federal arbitration law apply to this Arbitration Provision.  There is no judge or jury in arbitration and court review of an arbitration award is limited, but an arbitrator can award an individual the same damages and relief as a court in an individual case and must apply and follow applicable substantive law, consistent with the FAA, and the terms of these Terms of Use and any agreement governing the use of the Site and the Services.  The arbitrator shall apply applicable statutes of limitations and honor privilege rules.  Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator will be final, subject to any appeal rights under the FAA, and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.  No arbitration award involving the parties will have any preclusive effect as to issues or claims in any dispute involving anyone who is not a party to the arbitration, nor will an arbitration award in prior disputes involving other parties have preclusive effect in an arbitration between the parties to this Arbitration Provision.

JURY TRIAL WAIVER. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT YOUR CONSENT TO ARBITRATION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL BY JURY.

Arbitration Procedures. Either you or a Transaction Party can initiate arbitration through the AAA or by filing a motion to compel arbitration of claims filed in court.  Regardless of who elected arbitration or how arbitration was elected, the party asserting the claim (i.e., the party seeking money damages or other relief from a court or an arbitrator) is responsible for starting the arbitration proceeding. If the AAA cannot serve and we cannot agree on a substitute, a court with jurisdiction shall select the arbitrator, who will apply the AAA rules and the procedures specified in this Arbitration Provision.  Any arbitrator must be a practicing attorney with ten or more years of experience practicing law or a retired judge.  Any arbitration will be governed by the then-current Consumer Rules, and its Procedures for the Resolution of Disputes through Document Submission (“Document Submission Procedures”).  For more information about the AAA and its rules, you may contact the AAA at American Arbitration Association, 120 Broadway, Floor 21, New York, N.Y. 10271, 1-800-778-7879, www.adr.org.  The Document Submission Procedures are included in the Consumer Rules.  The parties shall pay filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with the Consumer Rules.  If you cannot afford to pay your share of the fees and cannot obtain a waiver from the AAA, you can make a written good faith request for a Transaction Party to pay or advance such fees. Each party will bear the expense of its own attorneys, experts and witnesses, regardless of which party prevails, unless applicable law, these Terms of Use or an applicable agreement gives a party the right to recover such expenses from the other party.  If the arbitrator determines that any party’s claim or defense is frivolous or wrongfully intended to oppress or harass the other party, the arbitrator may award sanctions in the form of fees and expenses reasonably incurred by the other party if such sanctions could be imposed under Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.  The arbitration will be conducted by a single arbitrator solely based on written submissions and will not require any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless the arbitrator determines that a telephonic or in-person conference or hearing is necessary based on the request of one or more of the parties.  If an in-person hearing is necessary, it will be held in the federal judicial district in which you reside or at another location that is reasonably convenient to all parties.

CLASS ACTION WAIVER. You and the Transaction Parties each agree that if arbitration of a Dispute is elected, the Dispute will be resolved in arbitration (not in court) only on an individual basis and not as a class, collective or other representative action.  To the fullest extent permitted under the FAA: (a) no arbitration will be joined or consolidated with any other unless all parties otherwise agree in writing; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action, collective action or private attorney general basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.  No arbitrator shall have the authority to issue any relief that applies to any person or entity other than Transaction Parties and/or you individually.

Miscellaneous; Conflicts. Even if all parties have opted to litigate a Dispute in court, a party may elect arbitration with respect to any claim made by a new party or any claim later asserted by a party in that or any related or unrelated lawsuit (including a claim initially asserted on an individual basis but modified to be asserted on a class, representative, or multi-party basis).  Nothing in that litigation shall constitute a waiver of any rights under this Arbitration Provision.  If any portion of this Arbitration Provision is inconsistent with the Consumer Rules, with these Terms of Use, or your agreements governing the use of the Services, or with an arbitration provision in any agreement with a Transaction Party, this Arbitration Provision shall govern.

Survival; Severance.  This Arbitration Provision shall survive termination of the Site and the Services or these Terms of Use or of any agreement into which you enter with a Transaction Party; and, further, you understand and agree that this Arbitration Provision applies not only to these Terms of Use but also to any subsequent agreement (including without limitation any agreement governing the use of Site or Services) into which you enter with a Transaction Party.  If any portion of this Arbitration Provision is deemed invalid or unenforceable, it shall not invalidate the remaining portions of this Arbitration Provision, except that: (a) if the Class Action Waiver is limited, voided or found unenforceable with respect to a Dispute that does not seek public injunctive relief and that determination becomes final after all appeals have been exhausted, then this Arbitration Provision (except for this sentence) shall be null and void with respect to such proceeding.  The parties acknowledge and agree that under no circumstances will a class action be arbitrated; and (b) if a claim is brought seeking public injunctive relief and a court determines that the restrictions in the Class Action Waiver or elsewhere in this Arbitration Provision prohibiting the arbitrator from awarding relief on behalf of third parties are unenforceable with respect to such claim and that determination becomes final after all appeals have been exhausted, the claim for public injunctive relief will be determined in court and any individual claims seeking monetary relief will be arbitrated.  In such a case the parties will request that the court stay the claim for public injunctive relief until the arbitration award pertaining to individual relief has been entered in court. In no event will a claim for public injunctive relief be arbitrated.

RIGHT TO OPT OUT: If you do not want this Arbitration Provision to apply, you must send us a signed notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the date on which you electronically submit an application for a product or service offered by a Transaction Party through the Site or Services.  You must send the notice in writing (and not electronically) to [℅ DIVACS, Inc. 254 Chapman Rd, Ste 208 #14943, Newark, DE 19702].  You must provide your name, address, telephone number, and state that you “opt out” of the Arbitration Provision.  Opting out will not affect the other provisions of these Terms of Use or any other agreement governing the Site or with a Transaction Party.  If you do not opt out, you will be bound by this Arbitration Provision in these Terms of Use and any other agreement governing a Service or with a Transaction Party.  Please note that if you enter an agreement with a Transaction Party that contains a different arbitration provision with a right to opt out, opting out of this Arbitration Provision is not a rejection of the arbitration provision in the other agreement.  You will need to separately opt out of the arbitration provision in the other agreement if you do not want it to apply.
