11.5 Dispute Resolution
(a) Arbitration Agreement Generally. Please read the following arbitration agreement (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It limits the manner in which User may seek relief from Company, is part of User’s contract with Company, and contains provisions concerning MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND WAIVER OF THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
(b) Exceptions. Nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration or to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
(c) Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. In the interest of resolving disputes between Company and User in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, and except as set forth in Section 11.5(b), User and Company agree that every dispute arising in connection with these Terms that cannot be resolved informally, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, including any unresolved dispute, claim, interpretation, controversy, or issues of public policy arising out of or relating to the Website, these Terms, or the Services, and the determination of the scope or applicability of this Section 11.5, will be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this Arbitration Agreement. Unless otherwise agreed to, all arbitration proceedings shall be held in English. This Arbitration Agreement applies to User and Company, and to any subsidiaries, Affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or goods provided under the Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all disputes or claims and requests for relief that arose or were asserted before the effective date of this Agreement or any prior version of this Agreement.
(d) Arbitration Rules. Arbitration will be conducted under the Federal Arbitration Act and administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, “AAA Rules”) as modified by these Terms. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at https://www.adr.org/, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting Company.
(e) Notice Requirement and Informal Dispute Resolution. Before either party may seek arbitration, the party must first send to the other party a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and the specific relief requested. A Notice to Company should be sent by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) to:
Parcl Labs, LLC
30 E 23rd Street FL 5 New York New York 10010 United States
User must send a courtesy copy of a Notice to Company at [email protected]. Company may send User a Notice by electronic mail. After the Notice is received, User and Company may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute informally. If User and Company do not resolve the claim or dispute within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, either party may begin an arbitration proceeding. All arbitration proceedings between the parties will be confidential unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing.
(f) Fees; Location. If User commences arbitration in accordance with these Terms, Company will reimburse User for User’s payment of the filing fee, unless User’s claim is for more than $75,000, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place in Denver, Colorado, or another location mutually agreed upon by the parties; provided, however, notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties shall endeavor, where possible, to cause the arbitration proceeding to be conducted: (i) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; or (ii) through a non-appearance-based telephone hearing or videoconference. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of User’s claim or the relief sought in User’s arbitration demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, in the arbitrator’s reasonable discretion, then the payment of all arbitration fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, User agrees to reimburse Company for all monies previously disbursed by Company that are otherwise User’s obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based.
(g) Enforcement. The Parties irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of state or United States federal courts located in Cheyenne, Wyoming with respect to this section to compel arbitration, to confirm an arbitration award or order, or to handle court functions permitted under the Federal Arbitration Act. The Parties irrevocably waive defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of any such action or other proceeding. The Parties may seek recognition and enforcement of any state court judgment confirming an arbitration award or order in any United States state court or any court outside the United States or its territories having jurisdiction with respect to recognition or enforcement of such judgment.
(h) Waiver of Jury Trial. THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient, and less costly than rules applicable in a court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In the event any litigation should arise between User and Company in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, USER AND COMPANY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.
(i) Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER.
(j) 30-Day Right to Opt Out. User has the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of its decision to opt out within thirty (30) days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. User’s notice must include its name and address and an unequivocal statement that User desires to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If User opts out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to User. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that User may currently have, or may enter in the future, with Company. Mail written notification by certified mail to.

(k) Severability. If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
(l) Right to Waive. Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Arbitration Agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Arbitration Agreement.
11.6 Attorneys’ Fees and Costs. In addition to any relief, order, or award that is entered by an arbitrator, or court as the case may be, any party found to be the substantially losing party in any dispute shall be required to pay the reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs of any party determined to be the substantially prevailing party, and such losing party, shall also reimburse or pay any of the arbitrator’s fees and expenses incurred by the prevailing party in any arbitration. In the context of this Agreement, reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs shall include but not be limited to:
(a) legal fees and costs, the fees and costs of witnesses, accountants, experts, and other professionals, and any other forum costs incurred during, or in preparation for, a dispute;
(b) all of the foregoing whether incurred before or after the initiation of an action; and
(c) all such fees and costs incurred in obtaining the relief awarded.
It is understood that certain time entries that may appear in the billing records of such party’s legal counsel may be redacted to protect attorney-client or work-product privilege, and this will not prevent recovery for the associated billings.
11.7 Third-Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement and the rights and obligations hereunder shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties and their successors and permitted assigns. Nothing in this Agreement, expressed or implied, is intended to confer upon any person, other than the parties and their successors and permitted assigns, any of the rights hereunder.
11.8 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement (or any portion thereof) is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall not be affected thereby and shall be binding upon the parties and shall be enforceable, as though said invalid or unenforceable provision (or portion thereof) were not contained in this Agreement.
11.9 Assignment. User may not assign or transfer any rights hereunder without the prior written consent of Company. Except as provided in this section, any attempts User makes to assign any of its rights or delegate any of its duties hereunder without the prior written consent of Company shall be null and void. Company may assign this Agreement or any rights hereunder without consent.
11.10 No Support. Company is under no obligation to provide support for the Website or the Services. In instances where Company may offer support, the support will be subject to published policies.
