20. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
Certain portions of this Section 20 are deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate”
pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and SPINSTATZ agree that we intend that this Section 20
satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act.
1. First -- Try to Resolve Disputes and Excluded Disputes. If any controversy, allegation, or claim
arises out of or relates to the Website, the Content, your User-Generated Content, your Unsolicited
Ideas and Materials, this User Agreement, or any Additional Terms (collectively, “Dispute”),
or to any of SPINSTATZs actual or alleged intellectual property rights (an “Excluded Dispute”,
which includes those actions set forth in Section 20(D) below), then you and we agree to send a
written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Dispute or Excluded Dispute,
along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most
recent contact information that you provide us. But if no such information exists or if such
information is not current, then we have no obligation under this Section 20(A). Your notice to us
must be sent to: SPINSTATZ, LLC, 215
2nd Ave. North, Suite 300, Nashville, TN, 37201, U.S.A., Attention: General Counsel. For a
period of 60 days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, SPINSTATZ and you will
engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute, though nothing
will require either you or SPINSTATZ to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute on terms with
respect to which you and SPINSTATZ, in each party’s sole discretion, are not comfortable.
Forums for Alternative Dispute Resolution.
If we cannot resolve a Dispute as set forth in Section 20(A) above within 60 days of receipt of the
notice, then either you or we may submit the Dispute to formal arbitration in accordance with this
Section 20(B). If we cannot resolve an Excluded Dispute as set forth in Section 20(A) above within
60 days of receipt of the notice, then either you or we may submit the Excluded Dispute to formal
arbitration only if you and SPINSTATZ consent, in a writing signed by you and SPINSTATZ, LLC's
General Counsel, to have that Excluded Dispute subject to arbitration. In such a case (and only in
such a case), that Excluded Dispute will be deemed a “Dispute” for the remainder of this
Upon expiration of the applicable 60-day period and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable
law, a Dispute will be resolved solely by binding arbitration in accordance with the then current
Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). If the
Dispute has a claimed value of not more than $250,000, then the arbitration will be heard and
determined by a single neutral arbitrator who is a retired judge or a lawyer with not less than 15
years experience as a practicing member of the bar in the substantive practice area related to the
Dispute, who will administer the proceedings in accordance with the AAA’s Supplementary
Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. If the Dispute has a claimed value of more than $250,000,
or if SPINSTATZ elects in its sole discretion to bear the costs of arbitration in excess of those
that would occur for a proceeding before a single neutral arbitrator, then the arbitration will be
heard and determined by a three member panel, with one member to be selected by each party and the
third (who will be chair of the panel) selected by the two party appointed members or by the AAA in
accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules. The arbitrator or arbitration panel, as the case
may be, will apply applicable law and the provisions of this User Agreement and any Additional
Terms, will determine any Dispute according to the applicable law and facts based upon the record
and no other basis, and will issue a reasoned award. If you and SPINSTATZ do not both consent to the
arbitration of an Excluded Dispute as set forth in the immediately preceding paragraph of this
Section 20(B)(i), then this paragraph and the remainder of this Section 20(B) will not apply to the
If a party properly submits the Dispute to the AAA for formal arbitration and the AAA is unwilling
or unable to set a hearing date within 60 days of the filing of a “demand for arbitration,”
then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the Judicial Arbitration and
Mediation Services Inc. (“JAMS”) using JAMS’ streamlined Arbitration Rules and
Procedures, or by any other arbitration administration service that you and a legal officer of
SPINSTATZ consents to in writing. The substantive practice area requirements for the arbitrator and
the $250,000 threshold for the number of arbitrators assigned to the Dispute set forth in the
paragraph above for the AAA arbitration will also apply to any such arbitration under JAMS or
another arbitration service.
You can obtain AAA and JAMS procedures, rules, and fee information as follows:
Nature, Limitations, and Location of Alternative Dispute Resolution. In arbitration, as with a
court, the arbitrator must honor the terms of this User Agreement (and any Additional Terms) and can
award the prevailing party damages and other relief (including attorneys’ fees). However, WITH
ARBITRATION (A) THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY, (B) THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS AND ARBITRATION OUTCOME
ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN CONFIDENTIALITY RULES, AND (C) JUDICIAL REVIEW OF THE ARBITRATION OUTCOME IS
LIMITED. All parties to the arbitration will have the right, at their own expense, to be represented
by an attorney or other advocate of their choosing. If an in-person arbitration hearing is required,
then it will be conducted in the “metropolitan statistical area” (as defined by the U.S.
Census Bureau) where you are a resident at the time the Dispute is submitted to arbitration. You and
we will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees and other costs in accordance with the
applicable arbitration rules; but if applicable arbitration rules or laws require SPINSTATZ to pay a
greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this Section 20 to be enforceable, then
SPINSTATZ will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration.
Discovery will be permitted pursuant to the applicable arbitration rules. The arbitrator’s
decision must consist of a written statement stating the disposition of each claim of the Dispute,
and must provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and any
award (if any) is based. Judgment on the arbitration decision and award (if any) may be entered in
or by any court that has jurisdiction over the parties pursuant to Section 9 of the Federal
Limited Time to File Claims. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU OR WE WANT TO
ASSERT A DISPUTE (BUT NOT AN EXCLUDED DISPUTE) AGAINST THE OTHER, THEN YOU OR WE MUST COMMENCE IT
(BY DELIVERY OF WRITTEN NOTICE AS SET FORTH IN SECTION 20(A) ABOVE) WITHIN 1 YEAR AFTER
THE DISPUTE ARISES -- OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.
Injunctive Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Section 20 will not apply to any legal action
taken by SPINSTATZ to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with any loss,
cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the Website, any Content, your
User-Generated Content or Unsolicited Ideas and Materials and/or SPINSTATZ's intellectual property
rights (including such SPINSTATZ may claim that may be in dispute), SPINSTATZ’s operations,
and/or SPINSTATZ's products or services.
Small Claims Matters Are Excluded from Arbitration Requirement. Notwithstanding the foregoing,
either of us may bring a qualifying claim of Disputes (but not Excluded Disputes) in small claims
No Class Action Matters. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be
consolidated with any other arbitrations or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy
of any other party. But if, for any reason, any court with competent jurisdiction or any arbitrator
selected pursuant to Section 20(B)(i) above holds that this restriction is unconscionable or
unenforceable, then our agreement in Section 20(B) above to arbitrate will not apply and the Dispute
must be brought exclusively in court pursuant to Section 20(G) below.
Federal and State Courts in Nashville, Tennessee. Except to the extent that arbitration is required
in Section 20(B) above, and except as to the enforcement of any arbitration decision or award, any
action or proceeding relating to any Dispute or Excluded Dispute may only be instituted in state or
federal court in Davidson County, Tennessee. Accordingly, you and SPINSTATZ consent to the exclusive
personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for such matters.
