In doing so, YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend any claims between you and BLOOMM (except for matters that may be taken to small-claims court). YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER CLASS PROCEEDING. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR, NOT A JUDGE OR JURY. You are entitled to a fair hearing before the arbitrator. The arbitrator can grant any relief that a court can, but you should note that arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.
Governing law and arbitration; waiver; indemnification
Our goal is to resolve any disputes amicably and quickly and we encourage you to contact us and explain your complaint as soon as it arises.
Arbitration. Read this section carefully because it requires the parties to arbitrate their disputes and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from Bloomm. For any dispute with Bloomm you agree to first contact us within 30 days of when the dispute arises in writing at 922 NW Circle Blvd. Suite 160, PMB 135, Corvallis, or 97330-1410 and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. in the unlikely event that has not been able to informally resolve a dispute it has with you within 60 days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief ) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “claims”), by binding arbitration by the Judicial Mediation and Arbitration Services (“jams”) under the jams optional expedited procedures then in effect, except as provided herein. Jams may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. You will have the right to participate in the selection of the arbitrator, who may be selected by mutual agreement of the parties or by the procedures provided by jams if the parties are unable to agree on an arbitrator. Unless the parties agree otherwise, the arbitrator Bloomm shall be an attorney licensed to practice in the location where the arbitration proceedings will be conducted or a retired federal or state judicial officer who presided in the jurisdiction where the arbitration will be conducted. The arbitration will be conducted in Benton County, Oregon, U.S.A. (or the nearest office to Benton County), unless you request a hearing in your hometown area or you and Bloommagree otherwise. The language to be used in the arbitral proceedings will be English, unless otherwise agreed by the parties. You will be responsible for paying any jams filing fees in accordance with jam’s rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorneys’ fees and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this section shall prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of that party’s data security, intellectual property rights, or other proprietary rights. You may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process.
If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of the documents that you and Bloommsubmit to the arbitrator and, if requested by either party or the arbitrator, a telephonic hearing.
Class Action and Jury Trial Waiver. You and Bloommagree that any and all claims must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective action, private attorney general action or other representative proceeding. This waiver applies to class arbitration, and, unless we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims. You agree that, by entering into this agreement, you and Bloomm are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action, collective action, private attorney general action or other representative proceeding.
Indemnity. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold Bloomm, its subsidiaries and affiliates, and each of their directors, officers, managers, agents, contractors, partners and employees harmless from any loss, liability, claim, damages, costs, debts, expenses or demand, including reasonable attorney's fees, due to or arising from (I) your use of or access to the Services, including any data or content transmitted or received by you, or your inability to use the Services; (ii) any claim or damages that arise as a result of any of your User Content or any User Content that is submitted via your account (iii) your conduct in connection with the Services or our users, (iv) your violation of any of the terms of this Agreement, including without limitation your breach of any of the representations and warranties above, (v) your violation of any rights of a third party, including without limitation any right of privacy or intellectual property rights; (vi) any other party’s access and use of the Services with your unique username, password or other appropriate security code or (viii) your violation of any applicable laws, rules or regulations.
Severability. If any clause within this Section is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this section and the remainder of the section will be given full force and effect, except that in the event of unenforceability of the Universal Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver, the entire arbitration agreement shall be unenforceable.
Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Oregon, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree that any claim or dispute you may have against BLOOMM must be resolved in a federal or state court located in Benton County, Oregon, USA (or the nearest court to this County) or as described in the Arbitration provision below. Both you and BLOOMM retain 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 copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that Benton County, Oregon, USA is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or in the event that the Arbitration provision below is for any reason held to be unenforceable.
Any proceeding to enforce this arbitration agreement, including any proceeding to confirm, modify, or vacate an arbitration award, may be commenced in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that this arbitration agreement is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against BLOOMM (except for small-claims court actions) may be commenced only in the federal or state courts located in near Benton County, Oregon. You hereby irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes.
