Arbitration, Waiver of Classwide Arbitration, Governing Law and Venue
If you are located in the United States, the following clause applies to you:
MANDATORY ARBITRATION. You have the right to optout of this mandatory arbitration provision. If you opt-out, you will retain your right to file a lawsuit. To opt- out, you must follow the directions set forth below under the heading “How to OptOut of Mandatory Arbitration”. If you do not opt-out, you will have agreed to the mandatory arbitration set forth below.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY. THE FOLLOWING PROVISIONS AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS.
ARBITRATION PROCEDURES AND FEES. Prior to submitting a claim for arbitration, either party shall first notify the other party to try to resolve the dispute. If the dispute is not resolved within 60 days of notification, then the claim will be submitted for arbitration. If you elect to seek arbitration or to file an action in a small claims court, you must first send to us by certified mail a written notice of your claim (“Notice”). The Notice to us must be addressed to: Legal Department, Linksys USA, Inc., 121 Theory, Irvine, CA 92617 (“Notice Address”). If we initiate arbitration, we will send a written Notice to the email address or any other address we have for you. A Notice, whether sent by you or by us, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought. If we and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding or a small claims action.
The arbitration shall occur before a single arbitrator, who must be a retired judge or justice, in one of six regional venues consistent with the venue provision below. Whether or not you prevail in the dispute, you shall be entitled to be reimbursed for your reasonable costs of arbitration, so long as your claim is not found to be frivolous by the arbitrator as measured by Rule 11 (b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, within the sole discretion of the arbitrator. If the arbitration award is equal to or greater than the amount you demanded in your arbitration claim, Linksys will pay for your reasonable and actual attorneys’ fees you incurred to arbitrate the dispute, plus a minimum recovery of $2,500. Any decision or award by the arbitrator rendered in an arbitration proceeding shall be final and binding on each party and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. IF EITHER PARTY BRINGS A DISPUTE IN A COURT OR OTHER NON-ARBITRATION FORUM, THE ARBITRATOR OR JUDGE MAY AWARD THE OTHER PARTY ITS REASONABLE COSTS AND EXPENSES (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ATTORNEYS’ FEES) INCURRED IN ENFORCING COMPLIANCE WITH THIS BINDING
ARBITRATION PROVISION, INCLUDING STAYING OR DISMISSING SUCH DISPUTE.
WAIVER OF CLASSWIDE CLAIMS; SMALL CLAIMS COURT. NEITHER YOU NOR LINKSYS SHALL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS IN ARBITRATION BY OR AGAINST OTHER CONSUMERS OR ARBITRATE ANY CLAIMS AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR MEMBER OF A CLASS OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WITHOUT THIS PROVISION YOU MAY HAVE HAD A RIGHT TO ARBITRATE A DISPUTE ON A CLASSWIDE OR REPRESENTATIVE BASIS, AND THAT YOU HAVE EXPRESSLY AND KNOWINGLY WAIVED THOSE RIGHTS AND AGREE INSTEAD TO ARBITRATE ONLY YOUR OWN DISPUTE(S) IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION.
NOTWITHSTANDING THE ABOVE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES, YOU AND LINKSYS EACH ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT (I) EITHER PARTY MAY, AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO ARBITRATION, BRING AN INDIVIDUAL ACTION IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT TO RESOLVE A DISPUTE, SO LONG AS SUCH SMALL CLAIMS COURT DOES NOT PROVIDE FOR OR ALLOW FOR JOINDER OR CONSOLIDATION OF CLAIMS, AND (II) LINKSYS SHALL BE ENTITLED TO INJUNCTIVE RELIEVE AS SET FORHT UNDER “LEGAL PROCEEDINGS” ABOVE.
VENUE. Except for individual small claims actions which can be brought in any small claims court where jurisdiction and venue are proper, any arbitration, legal, suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any dispute shall be commenced in () New York, New York, (2) Atlanta, Georgia, (3) Chicago, Illinois, (4) Dallas, Texas, (5) Seattle, Washington, or (6) Los Angeles, California, and you and Linksys each irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any such proceeding. However, for a dispute of $2,500 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration in any of the six regional venues proceeds in person, by telephone, or based only on submissions.
If you are located outside of the United States, or if the above arbitration clause is declared to be unenforceable, the following clause applies to you:
