13. Dispute Resolution; Governing Laws in Case of Dispute

THESE TERMS OF USE SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA, USA, AS THEY APPLY TO AGREEMENTS MADE AND SOLELY PERFORMED THEREIN. YOU IRREVOCABLY CONSENT AND WAIVE ALL OBJECTION TO PERSONAL JURISDICTION AND VENUE IN THE STATE AND FEDERAL COURTS LOCATED IN MIAMI DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, USA, AND YOU SHALL NOT COMMENCE OR PROSECUTE ANY SUIT OR ACTION UNLESS PERMITTED HEREIN EXCEPT IN THE FOREGOING COURTS.

THESE TERMS OF USE CONTAIN A BINDING ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.

All disputes between you and fishinglicense.org will be resolved by binding arbitration.  You thus give up your right to litigate disputes with us in court (except for matters that may be taken to small claims court).  Disputes will be decided by a neutral arbitrator and not a judge or jury.

You are entitled to a fair hearing, but arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited than court proceedings.  Arbitrator decisions are as enforceable as any court order and are subject to very limited review by a court.

How to Resolve a Dispute with Us

We offer the following process to help you resolve a complaint or dispute that you may have with us.  Please read this section carefully.

If our customer support team is unable to resolve your complaint, you agree to take the following steps to resolve any dispute you may have with us.

Step 1. Notice of Legal Dispute

You must first try to resolve any formal complaint or dispute with us through our Notice of Legal Dispute process. You begin by submitting a “Notice of Legal Dispute” to info@fishinglicense.org.

A “Notice of Legal Dispute” is a written form sent via email in which you provide your name, address, contact information, the facts regarding your Dispute, and the relief you are requesting from us.

You and we will attempt to resolve any Dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the Notice of Legal Dispute is received by a party. After sixty (60) days, you or we may initiate arbitration as described below.

You agree that the term “Dispute” in these Terms of Use will have the broadest meaning possible. It applies to any dispute, action, or other controversy between you and us concerning the Services (including their price) or this Terms of Use, whether in contract, warranty, tort, laws or regulation. The term also applies to any dispute over the validity, enforceability or scope of this arbitration provision.

Step 2: Arbitration

If your Dispute is not resolved to your satisfaction within 60 days from when we received your Notice of Legal Dispute, you and we agree to arbitrate all Disputes between us. As we explain below, you and we may also have the right to bring an individual action before a small claims court for certain claims.  You agree that arbitration or a small claims action will be your sole and exclusive remedy to resolve any dispute with us.

The Federal Arbitration Act applies to this Terms of Use. By agreeing to arbitrate, you are giving up the right to litigate (or participate in as a party or class member) any and all Disputes (except small claims) in court before a judge or jury. Instead, a neutral arbitrator will resolve all Disputes. To read more about arbitration, visit www.adr.org.

The American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) will conduct any arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules. If you are an individual and use the services for personal or household use, the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules will apply. You may begin arbitration with us by completing a Demand for Arbitration form. The completed form(s) should be returned directly to the AAA.  The AAA will assign someone to manage your case. You will be contacted with instructions for continuing the arbitration process. Be sure to keep a copy of everything you send to the administrator of your arbitration or us.

Costs

If your claim in arbitration is $75,000 or less, we will pay your filing fee, as well as other filing, AAA and arbitrator’s fees and expenses.  For all other arbitrations you initiate, the AAA rules will govern payment of filing fees and the AAA’s and arbitrator’s fees and expenses.  Information about filing fees for commercial arbitrations can be found in Commercial Arbitration Rules. If we, instead of you, initiate arbitration, we will pay all filing, AAA, and arbitrator’s fees and expenses. You may initiate arbitration only in Miami Dade County, Florida. The AAA rules will determine whether the arbitration will take place through written submissions by you and us, by telephone, or in person.

We will not seek to recover from you our attorney’s fees or expenses in any arbitration. Fees and expenses are not counted in determining how much a Dispute involves.

Please be advised that if an arbitrator finds that the arbitration was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, then we will seek to recover from you our AAA arbitrator’s fees and expenses, and/or your filing fees that we paid.

Incentive

We offer the following incentive for users who arbitrate any Dispute with us for any claim that is under $10,000. If you reject our last written proposal to resolve your claim before an arbitrator was appointed (the “Proposal”), and the arbitrator awards you more than the amount of our Proposal, we will: (i) pay you the greater of the award or $1,000; (ii) pay twice your reasonable attorney’s fees, if any; and (iii) reimburse any expenses (including expert witness fees and costs) that your attorney reasonably accrues for investigating, preparing, and pursuing your claim in arbitration.

Small Claims Option

You may also litigate any Dispute in small claims court in Miami Dade County, Florida, USA, if the Dispute meets all requirements to be heard in the small claims court. However, if you initiate a small claims case, you are responsible for all court costs and you are not entitled to the incentives we offer to you above for arbitration.

You Waive Any Class Action Claim

Any proceedings to resolve or litigate any dispute in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, consolidation of your Dispute with other arbitrations, or any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity are not permitted and are waived by you, and an arbitrator will have no jurisdiction to hear such claims.

If a court finds that the class action waiver in this section is unenforceable as to all or some parts of a Dispute, then the class action waiver will not apply to those parts. Instead, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in arbitration. If any other provision of this Dispute resolution section is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be severed with the remainder of this section remaining in full force and effect.

14. International Use

We do not represent that all content, materials and services on our Web site are appropriate or available for use in all geographic locations, especially some locations outside the United States, and accessing such from certain locations may be illegal and prohibited. Those who do access content, materials and services from such locations act on their own initiative and we are not responsible for their compliance with local laws or other applicable laws. You will not access the foregoing where prohibited by law.

15. Integration; Severability; General

These Terms of Use incorporate by reference any notices contained on this Web site and constitute the entire agreement with respect to your access to and use of this Web site. We may modify these Terms of Use at any time by posting revised Terms of Use on our Web site and your continuing use of such Web site and the services constitutes your agreement to be bound by such modified Terms of Use. Any provision of these Terms of Use which is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall be severable from these Terms of Use in that jurisdiction without in any way invalidating the remaining provisions of these Terms of Use. The unenforceability of any provision in a given jurisdiction shall not make that provision unenforceable in any other jurisdiction.
