The CTS and the relationship between you and CIVL, LLC shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You and CIVL, LLC agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the counties of Suffolk, Nassau, Queens, or New York.
RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES
(I) Mandatory Arbitration. Any dispute or claim between you and us relating to or arising out of the Service or CTS(except for small claims court matters or the injunctive or other equitable relief mentioned above), will be referred to and determined exclusively through binding confidential arbitration conducted in New York, United States. The arbitration will be held on an individual basis, before a single arbitrator and in accordance with the applicable New York arbitration statute. The arbitration will not be open to the public or media and all evidence discovered or submitted is confidential and may not be publicly disclosed, except as needed to enforce an arbitral award.
Arbitration applies to any and all such claims or disputes, whether they arose in the past, may arise in the future. This arbitration agreement is entered into pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§1-16 (FAA)
You and CIVL, LLC also agree that:
(a) you and CIVL, LLC will each pay such portion of costs of the arbitration (which consists of each party’s legal expenses, the fees and expenses of the arbitrator, and any other expenses related to the arbitration) as determined by the arbitrator.
(b) the arbitrator may, in making an award of costs, consider whether costs are prohibitive compared to litigating in a court, and may require CIVL, LLC to pay a greater portion of the fees and expenses of the arbitrator, or the travel expenses of you or any witness, in which case CIVL, LLC will pay as much of your arbitration costs as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent such cost-prohibitiveness;
(c) the arbitrator will honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law ;
(d) the arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are permitted by applicable law; and
(e) the arbitrator’s award will be final and non-appealable, but may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction.
(II) Jury Trial Waiver. THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement.
Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by the court. In the event any litigation should arise between you and CIVL, LLC in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND CIVIL, LLC WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge
(III) Class Action Waiver. THIS ARBITRATION WILL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, AND MAY NOT AWARD CLASS-WIDE RELIEF.
Entire Agreement. The CTS constitute the entire agreement between you and CIVL, LLC and govern your use of the Service, superceding any prior agreements between you and CIVL, LLC. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use or purchase certain other CIVL, LLC services, affiliate services, third-party content or third-party software.
Waiver and Severability of Terms. The failure of CIVL, LLC to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the CTS shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the CTS is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the CTS remain in full force and effect.
No Right of Survivorship and Non-Transferability. You agree that your CIVL, LLC account is non-transferable and any rights to your CIVL, LLC I.D. or contents within your account terminate upon your death. Upon receipt of a copy of a death certificate, your account may be terminated and all contents therein permanently deleted.
Statute of Limitations. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or the CTS must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
The section titles in the CTS are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
Please report any violations of the CTS to CIVL, LLC Customer Support through our help form.
