SECTION IX: GOVERNING LAW/ARBITRATION
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. ARBITRATION REPLACES THE RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO A JURY AND THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR SIMILAR PROCEEDING. IN ARBITRATION, A DISPUTE IS RESOLVED BY AN ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY.
The laws of the state of New Jersey shall govern this Agreement without giving effect to conflict of laws principles. We agree that any dispute, claim, or disagreement between us shall be resolved exclusively by arbitration. Arbitration is a process in which persons with a dispute(s): (i) agree to submit their dispute(s) to a neutral third person (an “arbitrator”) for a decision; and (ii) waive their rights to file a lawsuit in court to resolve their dispute(s). Each party to the dispute(s) has an opportunity to present some evidence to the arbitrator. Pre-arbitration discovery may be limited. Arbitration proceedings are private and less formal than court trials. The arbitrator will issue a final and binding decision resolving the dispute(s), which may be enforced as a court judgment. A court rarely overturns an arbitrator’s decision.
THEREFORE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE AS FOLLOWS:
For purposes of this provision (the “Arbitration Provision”) the words “dispute” and “disputes” are given the broadest possible meaning and include, without limitation (i) all claims, disputes, or controversies arising from or relating directly or indirectly to the signing of this Arbitration Provision, the validity and scope of this Arbitration Provision and any claim or attempt to set aside this Arbitration Provision; (ii) all federal or State law claims, disputes or controversies, arising from or relating directly or indirectly to this Agreement (including the Arbitration Provision), the information you gave us before entering into this Agreement, and/or any past agreement or agreements between you and us; (iii) all counterclaims, cross-claims and third-party claims; (iv) all common law claims, based upon contract, tort, fraud, or other intentional torts; (v) all claims based upon a violation of any state or federal statute or regulation; (vi) all claims asserted by us against you, including claims for money damages to collect any sum we claim you owe us; (vii) all claims asserted by you individually against us and/or any of our employees, agents, directors, officers, shareholders, managers, or affiliated entities (hereinafter collectively referred to as “related third parties”), including claims for money damages and/or equitable or injunctive relief; (viii) all claims asserted on your behalf by another person; and/or (ix) all claims asserted by you as a private attorney general, as a representative and member of a class of persons, or in any other representative capacity, against us and/or related third parties.
All disputes hereunder shall be resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association in effect at the time of the dispute. The cost of the arbitration will be born equally by the parties. The arbitration award will be final and binding and may be enforced by any court in New Jersey jurisdiction.
Only disputes involving you and EZALTS may be addressed in the arbitration. This means that the arbitration may not address disputes involving other persons with disputes similar to the disputes between you and EZALTS.
The arbitrator shall have the authority to award any legal or equitable remedy or relief that a court could order or grant under this agreement. All statutes of limitations that apply to any dispute shall apply to any arbitration between us. The Arbitrator will issue a decision or award in writing, briefly stating the essential findings of fact and conclusions of law.
Binding Effect. This Arbitration Provision is binding upon and benefits you, your respective heirs, successors, and assigns. The Arbitration Provision is binding upon and benefits us, our successors and assigns, and related third parties. The Arbitration Provision continues in full force and effect, even if your obligations have been prepaid, paid, or discharged through bankruptcy. The Arbitration Provision survives any termination, amendment, expiration, or performance of any transaction between you and us and continues in full force and effect unless you and we otherwise agree in writing.
Severability. If any portion of this Arbitration Provision is deemed invalid or unenforceable, it will not invalidate the remaining portions of the Arbitration Provision, unless the provision precluding the arbitrator from conducting a class arbitration as set forth above is deemed invalid or unenforceable, in which case this entire Arbitration Provision shall be deemed void.
