By using any Vida Wines Service, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of California, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Conditions of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Vida Wines.
Agreement to Arbitrate
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow these Terms as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to National Registered Agents, Inc., 160 Greentree Dr., Suite 101, Dover, Delaware, 19904. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules.
The arbitration hearing will be held in the country in which you reside or at another mutually agreed location. You or Vida Wines may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and Vida Wines subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing.
The arbitrator will decide all claims in accordance with applicable law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving other Vida Wines customers, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same Vida Wines customer to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
Prohibition of Class, Representative, and Consolidated Actions
You and Vida Wines agree that each of us may bring claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action. Unless both you and Vida Wines agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not join more than one party’s claims, and may not adjudicate or determine any form of a representative, class, or consolidated proceeding. The arbitrator may award relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) only in favor of the individual party bringing the claim, if such relief is warranted by the facts and law. Any relief awarded by the arbitrator will not affect other Vida Wines members.
If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration both you and Vida Wines each waive any right to a jury trial. You and Vida Wines also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
