AGREEMENT TO MEDIATE AND BE SUBJECT TO BINDING ARBITRATION AND WAIVER OF CERTAIN RIGHTS
All controversies, claims, counterclaims, or other disputes arising between you and Noble House Home Furnishings LLC, or you and a third-party agent of Noble House Home Furnishings LLC (a "Claim") will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration in accordance with the Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA Rules"). The arbitration will be heard and determined by a single arbitrator. The arbitrator's decision in any such arbitration will be final and binding upon the parties and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties agree that the arbitration proceedings will be kept confidential and that the existence of the proceeding and any element of it (including, without limitation, any pleadings, briefs or other documents submitted or exchanged and any testimony or other oral submissions and awards) will not be disclosed beyond the arbitration proceedings, except as may lawfully be required in judicial proceedings relating to the arbitration, by applicable disclosure rules and regulations of securities regulatory authorities or other governmental agencies, or as specifically permitted by state law. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement. However, the arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of these Terms including, but not limited to, a claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable.
If you demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Noble House Home Furnishings LLC. will pay as much of the administrative costs and arbitrator's fees required for the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the cost of the arbitration from being prohibitive. In the final award, the arbitrator may apportion the costs of arbitration and the compensation of the arbitrator among the parties in such amounts as the arbitrator deems appropriate.
This arbitration agreement does not preclude you or Noble House Home Furnishings LLC from seeking action by federal, state, or local government agencies. In addition, you and Noble House Home Furnishings retain the right to apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for provisional relief, including pre-arbitral attachments or preliminary injunctions, and any such request shall not be deemed incompatible with these Terms and Conditions, nor a waiver of the right to have disputes submitted to arbitration as provided in these Terms and Conditions.
Neither you nor Noble House Home Furnishings LLC may act as a class representative or private attorney general, nor participate as a member of a class of claimants, with respect to any Claim. Claims may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis. The arbitrator can decide only your and/or Noble House Home Furnishings LLC’s individual Claims. The arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated.
If any provision of this Section is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then that specific provision shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed, but the remainder of this Section shall continue in full force and effect. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration you and Noble House Home Furnishings LLC each waive any right to a jury trial. No waiver of any provision of this Section of the Terms and Conditions will be effective or enforceable unless recorded in a writing signed by the party waiving such a right or requirement. Such a waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Terms and Conditions. The arbitrator may award in the arbitration the same damages or other relief available under applicable law, including injunctive and declaratory relief, as if the action were brought in court on an individual basis. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing or herein, the arbitrator may not issue a "public injunction" and any such "public injunction" may be awarded only by a federal or state court. If either party seeks a "public injunction," all other claims and prayers for relief must be adjudicated in arbitration first and any prayer or claim for a "public injunction" in federal or state court stayed until the arbitration is completed, after which the federal or state court can adjudicate the party's claim or prayer for "public injunctive relief." In doing so, the federal or state court is bound under principles of claim or issue preclusion by the decision of the arbitrator. This Section of the Terms and Conditions will survive the termination of your relationship with Noble House Home Furnishings LLC.
THIS SECTION LIMITS CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM, THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN AAA RULES, AND THE RIGHT TO CERTAIN REMEDIES AND FORMS OF RELIEF. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU OR NOBLE HOUSE HOME FUNISHINGS LLC WOULD HAVE IN COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.
Choice of Law. This agreement is governed by the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles.
Limitation on Costs and Damages. In any and all actions against us, judgments and awards shall be limited to compensatory damages and limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred and shall not include compensatory pain and suffering damages, punitive, incidental, special, consequential or other damages (collectively, “Special Damages”). You also waive all rights to claim Special Damages and all rights to have such damages multiplied or increased, to the extent permitted by law. Awards shall not include attorney’s fees, unless explicitly required by statue.
Enforceability. If our agreement to arbitrate any and all disputes, except relating to a violation or threatened violation of our intellectual property rights, is found to be void or unenforceable, venue shall be in the State of California only and, in addition, you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts in the State of California.
