7. LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
This Site contains hypertext links to information created and maintained by third parties. These links are provided solely for your convenience. MattressVerdict does not control or guarantee the accuracy, relevance, timeliness, or completeness of any information or privacy policies posted on the sites to which we link. Links to particular items in hypertext do not reflect their accuracy or relative importance and should not be considered a recommendation or endorsement of the third parties hosting, sponsoring or otherwise related to those sites, the views expressed on those sites, or the products or services offered on those sites. Accessing any linked third-party website is solely at your own risk. We do not control those websites and are not responsible and will not be liable for their content, usability or legal safety or compliance.
In the event of any dispute, the party wishing to address the dispute must contact the other party in writing, which may include by email, and advise the receiving party of the dispute in reasonable detail and inform the other party of the remedy being sought. We may send you notices via the email address or physical address you provide to us, and all notices to us shall be sent to the following email address: [email protected] and include the words Dispute Notice in the subject. The parties shall then make a good faith effort to resolve the dispute before resorting to more formal means of resolution. In the event that the dispute is not resolved in that manner, the party raising the dispute may proceed to mandatory arbitration as set forth below.
OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH BELOW, ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN US WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION. YOU HEREBY AGREE TO WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A LAWSUIT IN COURT AND TO A JURY TRIAL.
Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. Arbitration will be before a sole arbitrator with experience arbitrating disputes concerning online retail sales. The arbitration will be held under the Non-Administered Arbitration Rules of the Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (CPR) at the request of either party pursuant to the following conditions:
Unless the parties agree to conduct the arbitration by telephone or written submission, an in-person arbitration hearing will be conducted at a facility selected by CPR or the arbitrator in the Borough of Manhattan, New York, New York, USA.
Subject to the applicable CPR procedure, the arbitrator shall allow reasonable discovery in the forms permitted by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, to the extent consistent with the purpose and subject matter of the arbitration. The arbitrator shall have no power or authority to amend or disregard any provision of this section or any other provision of these terms of service except as mandatory to comply with CPR rules. The arbitration hearing shall be commenced promptly and conducted expeditiously. If more than one day is necessary, the arbitration hearing shall be conducted on consecutive days unless otherwise agreed in advance by the parties in writing.
After reaching judgment and award, the arbitrator will prepare and distribute to the parties written findings of fact and conclusions of law in a reasoned opinion. The award of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties, and judgment on it may be entered in a court of competent jurisdiction.
You will be subject to a filing fee, set by CPR, to initiate the arbitration. To the extent permitted by CPR procedures, each party shall bear its own costs and expenses and an equal share of the arbitrator’s fee and administrative fees of the arbitration.
As an express exception to mandatory arbitration, either party may, without waiving any remedy or the right to arbitrate, seek from any court having jurisdiction any interim or provisional relief or a ruling as to intellectual-property infringement or dilution.
Any arbitration, claim or other proceeding by or between you and MattressVerdict shall be conducted on an individual basis and not in any class action, mass action, or on a consolidated or representative basis. The arbitrator shall have no authority to award class-wide relief or to combine or aggregate similar claims or unrelated transactions. You may not commence arbitration proceedings as a representative of others. If, for any reason, a claim involving you proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, each party waives any right to a jury trial. Any claim that all or part of this class-action waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator.
The law applicable to the interpretation and construction of these terms of service and any transaction using or related to the Site shall be the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal laws and the laws of the State of New York, USA, without regard to principles of conflict of laws.
