Binding Arbitration of All Disputes; No Class Relief
This Section is deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. Naveego® and you agree that these Terms of Service affect interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of these arbitration provisions. You and Naveego® agree that we intend that this Section satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. This Section can only be amended by mutual agreement.
We agree that arbitration is a faster, more convenient and less expensive way to resolve any disputes or disagreements that you may have with us. Therefore, pursuant to these Terms of Service, if you have any dispute or disagreement with us regarding (i) your use of or interaction with the Website, or (ii) any data or information you may provide to Naveego® or that Naveego® may gather in connection with such use, interaction or transaction, you will not have the right to pursue a claim in court, or have a jury decide the claim and you will not have the right to bring or participate in any class action or similar proceeding in court or in arbitration. By using or interacting with the Website, you agree to binding arbitration as provided below.
In the event of a dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or in connection with your access to, and/or use of the Website, Naveego® or you must give the other notice of the dispute, claim, or controversy which notice will include a brief written statement that sets forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the dispute, claim, or controversy and the relief requested. You must send any such notice to Naveego® by email to email@example.com AND by U.S. Mail to Naveego®’s worldwide corporate headquarters in Traverse City, Michigan USA. To the extent that Naveego® has your contact information, it will send any such notice to you by U.S. Mail, or otherwise to your email address. Naveego® and you will attempt to resolve any dispute, claim, or controversy through informal negotiation within thirty (30) days from the date that any notice of dispute, claim, or controversy is sent. Naveego® and you shall use reasonable, good faith, efforts to settle any dispute, claim, or controversy through consultation and good faith negotiations. After 30 days, Naveego® or you may resort to the other alternatives described in this Section. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the notice and 30 day negotiation period required by this paragraph shall not apply, however, to disputes, claims, or controversies concerning patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets and claims of piracy or unauthorized use of the Website.
Except as otherwise specifically set forth below, any dispute, claim, or controversy of any kind between Naveego® and you arising under these Terms of Service or in connection with your access to, and/or use of the Website, if unresolved through informal discussions within thirty (30) days of receipt of notice, shall be resolved by binding arbitration to be held in the state in which you reside. Notwithstanding the foregoing, disputes, claims, or controversies concerning patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets and claims of piracy or unauthorized use of the Website shall not be subject to arbitration.
You further agree that:
(A) Arbitrator Will Interpret This Agreement. The Arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising under or relating to the validity, interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms of Service and/or these arbitration provisions in Section hereof, including but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms of Service is void or voidable;
(B) No Class Relief. The Arbitration can resolve only your and/or Naveego®’s individual claims, and the Arbitrator shall have no authority to entertain or arbitrate any claims on a class or representative basis, or to consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated;
(C) Written Award. The Arbitrator shall issue a written award supported by a statement of decision setting forth the Arbitrator’s complete determination of the dispute and the factual findings and legal conclusions relevant to it (an “Award”). Judgment upon the Award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof or having jurisdiction over the relevant party or its assets;
(D) Arbitration Costs. In the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of Arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Naveego® will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the Arbitration as the Arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive, regardless of the outcome of the Arbitration, unless the Arbitrator determines that your claim(s) were frivolous or asserted in bad faith;
Naveego® shall bear the cost of any arbitration filing fees and arbitration fees for claims of up to $75,000, unless the arbitrator finds the arbitration to be frivolous. You are responsible for all other additional costs that you may incur in the arbitration including, but not limited to attorney’s fees and expert witness costs unless Naveego® is otherwise specifically required to pay such fees under applicable law. For claims that total more than $75,000, the AAA Rules will govern payment of filing fees and arbitration fees. The decision of the arbitrator will be in writing and binding and conclusive on Naveego® and you, and judgment to enforce the decision may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction. Naveego® and you agree that dispositive motions, including without limitation, motions to dismiss and motions for summary judgment will be allowed in the arbitration. The arbitrator must follow these Terms of Service and can award the same damages and relief as a court, including injunctive or other equitable relief and attorney’s fees. Naveego® and you understand that, absent this mandatory arbitration provision, Naveego® and you would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. Naveego® and you further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
If your claim is solely for monetary relief of $10,000 or less, and does not include a request for any type of equitable remedy, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely based on documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing under the AAA Rules.
You may choose to pursue your claim in small claims court where jurisdiction and venue over Naveego® and you otherwise qualify for such small claims court and where your claim does not include a request for any type of equitable relief.
(E) Reasonable Attorney’s Fees. In the event you recover an Award greater than Naveego®’s last written settlement offer, the Arbitrator shall also have the right to include in the Award Naveego®’s reimbursement of your reasonable and actual out-of-pocket attorneys’ fees associated with the Arbitration, but Naveego® shall in all events bear its own attorneys’ fees; and
(F) Interpretation and Enforcement of Arbitration Clause. With the exception of subpart (e) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Applicable Rules, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (e) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor Naveego® shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute, and must instead bring any claims in a court of competent jurisdiction.
(G) Non-U.S. Residents. For residents outside the United States, arbitration shall be initiated in Traverse City, Michigan, and Naveego® and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any state or federal court in Traverse City, Michigan to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
(H) Single Arbitrator. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single arbitrator, governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms of Service, and administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and fee information are available at www.adr.org.
(I) Opt Out. You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by these arbitration provisions by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to the following Email address firstname.lastname@example.org AND by U.S. Mail to Naveego®’s worldwide corporate headquarters in Traverse City, Michigan USA. The notice must be sent within the later of 30 days of your first use of the Website or within 30 days of changes to this Section being announced on the Website, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate any disputes, claims, or controversies in accordance with the terms of these paragraphs. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, Naveego® also will not be bound by them. If you do not affirmatively elect to opt out as described above, your use of the Website will be deemed to be your irrevocable acceptance of these Terms of Service and any changes/updates to this section or otherwise.
(J) If any clause within these arbitration provisions is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that specific clause will be severed from these arbitration provisions, and the remainder of the arbitration provisions will be given full force and effect. In the event some or all of these arbitration provisions are determined to be unenforceable for any reason, or if a claim, dispute or controversy is brought that is found by a court to be excluded from the scope of these arbitration provisions, Naveego® and you agree to waive, to the fullest extent allowed by law, any trial by jury.
(K) The terms of these arbitration provisions will also apply to any claims asserted by you against any present or future parent or affiliated company of Naveego® to the extent that any such claims arise out of your access to, and/or use of the Website.
Dispute Resolution for Non-US Residents Only if a Tribunal has Ruled that Arbitration is Prohibited by Law
This applies to non-US Residents, where applicable law prohibits arbitration of disputes. If any controversy, allegation, or claim (including any non-contractual claim) arises out of or relates to the Website, these Terms of Service, whether heretofore or hereafter arising or to any of Naveego®’s actual or alleged intellectual property rights, then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it.

But if no such information exists or if such information is not current, then we have no obligation under this section. Your notice to us must be sent to: by mail: Naveego®’s worldwide corporate headquarters in Traverse City, Michigan USA; By e-mail: email@example.com.
For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, Naveego® and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve this dispute, though nothing will require either you or Naveego® to resolve this dispute on terms with respect to which you and Naveego®, in each of our sole discretion, are not comfortable.
The foregoing provisions of this section will not apply to any legal action taken by Naveego® to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with, any loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the Website, any Content, your User Content and/or Naveego®’s intellectual property rights, Naveego®’s operations, products and/or services.
Class Action Waiver
Naveego® and you agree that Naveego® and you will resolve any disputes, claims or controversies on an individual basis, and that any claims brought under these Terms of Service in connection with the Website will be brought in an individual capacity, and not on behalf of, or as part of, any purported class, consolidated, or representative proceeding. Naveego® and you further agree that Naveego® and you shall not participate in any consolidated, class, or representative proceeding (existing or future) brought by any third party arising under these Terms of Service or in connection with the Website.
If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the disputes, claims or controversies will not be subject to arbitration and must be litigated in federal court having jurisdiction for Traverse City, Michigan.
The terms of this provision will also apply to any claims asserted by you against any parent or affiliated company of Naveego® to the extent that any such claims arise out of your access to, and/or use of the Website, and/or the provision of content, services, and/or technology on or through the Website.
