TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAWS, BOTH YOU AND WE AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SITE MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES OR THE CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
(This limitation does not apply to New Jersey residents).
Each of us agrees that, any dispute arising out of or relating to this Terms of service and any other Policy found on this Site, including the alleged breach, termination, validity, interpretation and performance thereof (“Dispute”) shall be resolved with the following procedures:
a. Negotiation: Upon written notice of any Dispute, each of us shall attempt to resolve it promptly by negotiation. This process should be completed within Thirty (30) Calendar Days (the “Negotiation”).
b. Mediation: If the Dispute has not been resolved by Negotiation, then the we shall proceed to non-binding confidential “Mediation”.
A “Notice of Mediation” shall be served, signifying that the Negotiation was not successful and to commence the mediation process, under the rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The AAA shall appoint a mediator. The mediation session shall be held within Thirty (30) Calendar Days of the appointment of the mediator, and shall last for at least one full mediation day, before either of us shall have the option to withdraw from the process. We may mutually agree to continue the Mediation process beyond one day, until there is a settlement agreement, unless either party, or the mediator, states that there is no reason to continue because of an impasse that cannot be resolved and sends a “notice of termination of mediation.” All reasonable efforts will be made to complete the mediation within Thirty (30) Calendar Days of the first Mediation session.
During the course of the Mediation, neither of us can assert the failure to fully comply with paragraph (a), as a reason not to proceed or to delay the mediation.
The service of the Notice of Mediation shall stay the running of any applicable statute of limitations regarding the Dispute until Thirty (30) Calendar Days after we mutually agree that the Mediation is concluded or the mediator issues a Notice of Impasse.
Each side shall bear an equal share of the mediation costs unless we should mutually agree otherwise. All communications, both written and oral, during Negotiation and Mediation are confidential and shall be treated as settlement negotiations for purposes of applicable rules of evidence; however, documents generated in the ordinary course of business prior to the Dispute, that would otherwise be discoverable, do not become confidential simply because they are used in the Negotiation and/or Mediation process. The process shall be confidential based on terms acceptable to the mediator and/or mediation service provider.
After the Mediation process is exhausted, each and either of us shall have the right to commence litigation and bring its claims before the Court, pursuant to the provisions of this article.
