Dispute Resolution

Company will try work in good faith to resolve any issue User has with the Website. However, Company realizes that there may be rare cases where Company may not be able to resolve an issue to a User’s satisfaction.

User and Company agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to User’s use of the Website, including donations made and/or products and services ordered or purchased through the Website, shall be determined by binding arbitration instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. Arbitration is more informal than bringing a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitration allows for more limited discovery than in court, however, Company agrees to cooperate with Users to agree to reasonable discovery in light of the issues involved and amount of the claim. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award, but in so doing, the arbitrator shall apply substantive law regarding damages as if the matter had been brought in court. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms and any other contractual relationship between User and Company.

USER AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both User and Company agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with User’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim.

If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then (a) the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, but the remaining provisions of these Terms shall remain in full force and effect; and (b) exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any claims will be in state or federal courts in Massachusetts.
