13. Dispute Resolution
13.1 In General
Any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of Dental Genie (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you are waiving the right to a trial by jury and to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless otherwise agreed in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 13 will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this Section 13 will survive any termination of these Terms.
13.2 Arbitration Rules and Governing Law.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (”AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified as set forth in Section 13.6 below. The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.
13.3 Arbitration Location and Procedure.
Unless otherwise agreed, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and we submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
13.4 Arbitrator’s Decision
The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of Section 9 “Limitation of Liability” as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide
relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. We will not seek, and hereby waive all rights we may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if we prevail in arbitration.
13.5 Arbitration Fees.
Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, we will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
13.6 Changes to Dispute Resolution Provisions
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, if we make any changes to the dispute resolution process set forth in this Section 13 after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to genie@DentalGenie.com) within thirty (30) days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated Date” above or in the date of our email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and us in accordance with the provisions of this Section 13 as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you, us or any Provider as a result of these Terms or your use of Dental Genie or App. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be struck and the remaining provisions shall be enforced to the fullest extent under law. Our failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing. These Terms comprise the entire agreement between you and us and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous negotiations, discussions or agreements, if any, whether written or oral, between you and us regarding the subject matter contained herein.
