We reserve the right to take exclusive control and defense of any claim, and you will cooperatefully with us in asserting any available defenses.

SECTION 17: DISPUTE RESOLUTION, BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

We hope there is never a dispute between us. If a dispute does arise, we will try to resolve it informally within 60 days. If informal resolution is not successful, then, with the exceptions discussed below, we agree to submit any dispute to binding arbitration before the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). This means we agree we will not sue each other in a court of law in front of a judge or a jury. Instead, a neutral arbitrator will hear the dispute and render a final decision.

Note, further, that for any dispute you have against PhD, resolution of the dispute must occur on an individual basisonly. Class action lawsuits, class-wide arbitrations,private attorney-general actions, and any other proceeding where someone acts in a representative capacity are not permitted nor is combining individual proceedings without the consent of all parties. You are expressly waiving your right to bring and participate in a class action. You can, however, bring a claim for public injunction in the arbitration.

    1. Disputes Covered and the IP Exception. The term “dispute” is as broad as it can be. It includes any claim or controversy between you and PhD arising out of, relating to, in connection with, or concerning the Site, the Content, your User Content, any service or product marketed, sold, distributed or provided by us, or these Terms, under any legal theory including contract, warranty, tort, statute, or regulation,except disputes relating to the enforcement or validity of your or our intellectual property rights.
    2. Informal Resolution. If you have a dispute, please send a Notice of Dispute by U.S. Mail toPhD Fitness LLC,31300 Via Colinas, Suite 101, Westlake Village, California 91362. In the Notice of Dispute, include your full name, address, how to contact you (including e-mail address), what the problem is, and what you want. We’ll do the same if we have a dispute with you. Upon receipt of a Notice of Dispute, we will attempt to resolve our dispute informally within 60 days. If no resolution is reached in 60 days, you or we may either file a claim in small claims court or start an arbitration.
    3. Small Claims Court Exception. Instead of commencing an arbitration, we can sue each other in small claims court in your county of residence (or, if a business, your principal place of business).
    4. Arbitration Procedure. The AAA will conduct any arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules (or, if appropriate because you are an individual consumer or the value of the dispute is $75,000 or less, its Consumer Arbitration Rules). For more information, see www.adr.org or call 1-800-778-7879.

To start an arbitration, you must follow the AAA Rules. In a dispute involving $25,000 or less, any hearing will be telephonic unless the arbitrator finds good cause to hold an in-person hearing instead. Any in-person hearing will take place in your county of residence (or, ifa business, your principal place of business) or in Westlake Village, California. It is up to you to choose the location. Like in a court, the arbitrator may award damages (on an individual basis), declaratory relief (on an individual basis), or injunctive relief (both private and public). Under AAA Rules, the arbitrator rules on his or her own jurisdiction, including the arbitrability of any claim, but a court has the authority to enforce the prohibition on arbitration on a class-wide basis or in a representative capacity.

  1. Arbitration Fees and Payments.
    1. Consumer Disputes or Disputes Involving $75,000 or Less. You will be responsible for the filing fee, but PhD will be responsible for the AAA’s Case Management Fee and the arbitrator’s fees and expenses. If you happen to pay the Case Management Fee or an arbitrator fee, PhD will reimburse you.
    2. Non-Consumer Disputes Involving More than $75,000. The AAA rules will govern payment of filing fees and the AAA’s and arbitrator’s fees and expenses.
  2. Conflict with AAA Rules. These Terms govern to the extent they conflict with the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules or Consumer Arbitration Rules.
  3. One Year Window To File. You and PhD must file in small claims court or arbitration any claim or dispute (except intellectual property disputes) within one year from when it first could be filed. Otherwise, it’s permanently barred.
  4. Opt-Out Exception. If you do not wish to be bound by the binding arbitration provision and class-action waiver, you must notify us in writing within 30 days of the date you first accept these Terms (unless the law provides a longer period). Your written notification must be sent by first-class mail to: PhD Fitness LLC, 31300 Via Colinas, Suite 101, Westlake Village, California 91362. Please include your full name, address, how to contact you (including e-mail address), and a statement indicating you wish to opt-out of the arbitration provision. If you do not opt-out within the time period set forth herein, you will be bound by the arbitration provision and the class action waiver in these Terms, including any provisions in any Terms revised after the date of your first acceptance.
