DISPUTE RESOLUTION; BINDING ARBITRATION AND NO CLASS RELIEF. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY -- IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT
(b) In the event of a dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or in connection with your access to, and/or use of the Sites, and/or the provision of content, services, and/or technology on or through the Sites, Turner 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 Turner by email to firstname.lastname@example.org AND by U.S. Mail to One CNN Center Box 105573 Atlanta, GA 30348. To the extent that Turner has your contact information, it will send any such notice to you by U.S. Mail, or otherwise to your email address. Turner and you will attempt to resolve any dispute, claim, or controversy through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date that any notice of dispute, claim, or controversy is sent. Turner and you shall use reasonable, good faith, efforts to settle any dispute, claim, or controversy through consultation and good faith negotiations. After 60 days, Turner or you may resort to the other alternatives described in this Section, including commencement of an arbitration proceeding. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the notice and 60 day negotiation period required by this paragraph shall not apply, however, to disputes, claims, or controversies concerning intellectual property rights, trade secrets and claims of piracy or unauthorized use of the Sites.
(c) Except in relation to intellectual property rights as set forth in subparagraph (e) below, we each agree to resolve disputes through binding arbitration with no class relief instead of in courts. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted.
(d) Except as set forth in subparagraph (e) below, Turner and you agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to the Service or your use of the Service, including the website, user interface, these Terms and this Arbitration Agreement, shall be determined on an individual basis, without class relief, by binding arbitration instead of courts of general jurisdiction. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to:
(i) claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory;
(ii) claims that arose before this or any prior Agreement;
(iii) claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.
References in this paragraph to "Turner," "you," and "us" include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, licensees, licensors or providers of content, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users of the Service under this or prior Agreements. This arbitration agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf.
You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and Turner are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, return receipt requested, or by other mail delivery service that provides proof of delivery (e.g., FedEx), a written notice of dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to Turner should be addressed to: General Counsel, Turner, One CNN Center, Box 105573 Atlanta, GA 30348 ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Turner or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Turner is entitled.
If your claim is for less than $75,000, upon written request to the Notice Address prior to commencement of the arbitration, Turner will advance the arbitration filing fee and arbitrator's costs by direct payment to the appropriate entity. If the arbitration proceeding is decided in Turner's favor, you shall reimburse Turner for the fees and costs advanced to the extent available in a judicial proceeding. If the arbitration is decided in your favor - which occurs if there is an award to you that is greater than the value of Turner's last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected - you will not be required to reimburse Turner for any of the fees and costs advanced.
The arbitration will be 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 this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement, including Disclaimer of Warranties and Limitation of Liability. The arbitrator shall have the right to award money damages and other appropriate relief, consistent with the terms of this agreement; HOWEVER THE ARBITRATOR SHALL NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO AWARD INJUNCTIVE RELIEF AGAINST EITHER PARTY OR TO CERTIFY A CLASS ACTION OF ANY KIND.
All issues are for the arbitrator to decide. Unless Turner and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place either (i) in person in the county (or parish) of your residence, or in New York, New York, at your option, or (ii) by video conference during which you shall be able to appear from the county (or parish) of your residence, or any other location of your choosing which has appropriate video conference facilities available. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, there shall be no in person hearing; and we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by video conference as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to and format of a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
Each party shall be responsible for their own attorneys' fees. Although under some laws Turner may have a right to an award of attorneys' fees and expenses if it prevails in an arbitration, Turner agrees that it will seek such an award only in the event that the substance of your claim or the relief sought has been deemed by the arbitrator to be frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
YOU AND TURNER AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Turner agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
(e) Notwithstanding the foregoing, disputes enforcing, protecting, or concerning the validity of any of your or Turner's intellectual property rights (or the intellectual property rights of any of Turner's licensors) are not covered by this agreement to arbitrate contained in paragraph 22. In the event a party asserts that a matter is not subject to arbitration under this subsection (e), a court of competent jurisdiction shall decide the question of arbitrability.
