Arbitration and Governing Law

The United States Federal Arbitration Act will apply to any disputes between us as provided in this section. EXCEPT FOR CLAIMS THAT ARE ELIGIBLE TO BE BROUGHT IN CONCILIATION OR SMALL CLAIMS COURT, AND CLAIMS FOR EQUITABLE RELIEF, ANY DISPUTE THAT IN ANY WAY RELATES TO OR ARISES OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR YOUR USE OF THE SITE WILL BE RESOLVED BY A SINGLE NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR UNDER THE CONSUMER ARBITRATION RULES OF THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION. THE ARBITRATION WILL BE CONDUCTED IN MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA, BUT YOU OR WE (OR BOTH) MAY ELECT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ARBITRATION TELEPHONICALLY OR BY VIDEO CONFERENCE. The arbitrator will have the power to grant any remedy that a court could provide.

YOUR CAN ONLY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST US IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND WE CAN ONLY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST YOU IN OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY. NEITHER YOU NOR WE CAN BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER AS PART OF A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.

Before beginning an arbitration proceeding, you and we will first provide the other written notice of the dispute. That notice will describe the nature and basis of the dispute so that you and we can try to resolve the dispute without arbitration. If you and we cannot resolve the dispute within 30 days following receipt of the notice, either of us can begin the arbitration proceeding. You will send notices to us at the street and email addresses that are shown for us on the Site’s Contact Us page. We will send notices to you at the street and email addresses that you provided us in your most recent transaction through the Site.

Except as provided above, this Agreement is governed by THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA, as applied to agreements entered into and wholly performed within Minnesota by Minnesota residents, without regard to the laws of any jurisdiction that concern conflicts of laws. ANY DISPUTE THAT RELATES TO THIS AGREEMENT OR YOUR USE OF THE SITE AND IS NOT SUBJECT TO THE ARBITRATION PROVISIONS ABOVE WILL BE BROUGHT AND RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY IN STATE OR FEDERAL COURTS LOCATED IN HENNEPIN COUNTY MINNESOTA; AND THOSE COURTS WILL HAVE EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION OVER ANY APPEAL FROM AN ARBITRATION PROCEEDING. YOU CONSENT AND SUBMIT TO THE PERSONAL JURISDICTION OF THOSE COURTS.

THIS SECTION DOES NOT PREVENT YOU FROM BRINGING ANY CONCERNS YOU MAY HAVE TO THE ATTENTION OF FEDERAL, STATE, OR LOCAL GOVERNMENT OR REGULATORY AGENCIES.

Severability

If, for any reason, any provision of this Agreement is determined to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision (or the part thereof that is unenforceable or invalid) will be deemed severed from this Agreement, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will be carried out with the same force and effect as if the severed provision (or part) had not been a part of this Agreement.

Assignment

We may assign or transfer any of our rights under this Agreement without notice to you.

No Waiver

No failure by us to strictly enforce any provision of this Agreement will operate as a waiver of that provision or any violation of that provision.
