Arbitration

In the event of any dispute, controversy or claim between the parties hereto arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the parties shall first seek to resolve the dispute in good faith through informal discussion. You agree that before initiating any dispute or arbitration proceeding, the parties will attempt to negotiate an informal resolution of any dispute and then proceed with mediation. Mandatory Binding Arbitration. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS under its Comprehensive Rules in effect at the time the arbitration demand is made. The current rules, effective July 1, 2014, can be found here: http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. JAMS arbitration rules can be found here: http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-clauses/. In the event of any conflict between the rules and this Agreement, this Agreement shall apply. The parties agree to submit to the jurisdiction of a single neutral arbitrator selected in accordance with the JAMS Comprehensive Rules. The language of the arbitration shall be English. The arbitrator may grant injunctions or other relief in such dispute or controversy. The arbitrator’s decision shall be final, conclusive and binding on the parties to the arbitration. Judgment may be entered on the arbitrator’s decision in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties agree that the arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to decide all issues relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability and scope of this arbitration agreement. During the arbitration, both You and Nutrition Commission may take one deposition of the opposing party, limited to 4 hours. If the parties cannot agree on a time and location for a deposition, the arbitrator will resolve any scheduling disputes. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the arbitrator shall not have jurisdiction over any dispute relating to ownership, infringement or misappropriation of a party’s intellectual property or confidentiality rights unless the parties specifically so agree in writing in such matter, and either party may (after attempting informal resolution as provided above) submit any such dispute to any court in accordance with “Governing Law” section below, and may apply to any such court for injunctive relief in connection therewith. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, Los Angeles, California, or any other location you and Nutrition Commission mutually agreed upon in writing.

CLASS ACTION WAIVER. TO THE EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, COLLECTIVE ACTION, OR NON-PAGA REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING (COLLECTIVELY “CLASS ACTION WAIVER”). THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS OR ENGAGE IN ANY CLASS ARBITRATION. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND NUTRITION COMMISSION ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. Further, if the parties’ dispute is resolved through arbitration, neither JAMS nor the arbitrator may not consolidate another person’s claims with your claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding for any purpose. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section shall be null and void. In any lawsuit in which (1) the complaint is filed as a class action or collective action; and (2) the civil court of competent jurisdiction in which the complaint was filed finds the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable (and such finding is confirmed by appellate review if review is sought), the Class Action Waiver shall be severable from this Agreement and in such instances, the class action, collective action must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not as a class or collective. In any lawsuit in which (1) the complaint is filed as a private attorney general action seeking to represent any individual(s) other than the named plaintiff; and (2) the civil court of competent jurisdiction in which the complaint was filed finds the PAGA Waiver is unenforceable (and such finding is confirmed by appellate review if review is sought), the PAGA Waiver shall be severable from this Agreement and in such instances, the private attorney general action must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not as a private attorney general arbitration. Arbitration Costs. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS Rules. If you assert a claim against Nutrition Commission, you will be responsible for paying a $250 consumer filing fee. Nutrition Commission will pay for reasonable arbitration fees where: (a) the claim for damages exceeds $10,000, and (b) the claims are not frivolous under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b). Nutrition Commission will not seek attorneys’ fees or costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b).
