AGREEMENT TO MANDATORY ARBITRATION
Instead of suing in court, you and the Company agree to resolve all disputes and claims between us only by binding and bilateral arbitration. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND THE COMPANY ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. However, just as a court would, the arbitrator can award damages and relief, including any attorneys’ fees if authorized by law. The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with some exceptions under the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. 1, et seq., and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction.
References to the “Company,” “you” and “us,” for purposes of this agreement to arbitrate include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, heirs, guardians, successors and assigns, and all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of the Company’s services.
This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to (i) disputes and 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 (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising); (iii) claims that may arise after the termination of your relationship with the Company; and (iv) claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class.
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. In addition, and notwithstanding the other provisions of this arbitration agreement, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court.
The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. 1, et seq. (the “FAA”) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this agreement to arbitrate. The FAA’s provisions, not state law, govern all questions of whether a dispute is subject to arbitration.
Unless otherwise agreed to by you and the Company in writing, the arbitration will be governed and conducted by JAMS before a single arbitrator who is licensed to practice law. The JAMS rules, including the selection of an arbitrator, filing, administration, discovery and arbitrator fees will be conducted under JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures, except as modified by this agreement or otherwise agreed to by you and the Company in writing. The JAMS rules are available on its website at
To the extent that this agreement to arbitrate conflicts with JAMS’s Consumer Minimum Standards, the JAMS’s Consumer Minimum Standards in that regard shall control. NOTHING IN THIS PARAGRAPH SHALL REQUIRE OR ALLOW YOU OR THE COMPANY TO ARBITRATE ON A CLASSWIDE OR CONSOLIDATED BASIS.
THIS AGREEMENT DOES NOT ALLOW CLASS ARBITRATIONS EVEN IF JAMS PROCEDURES OR RULES WOULD. RATHER, YOU AND THE COMPANY ARE ONLY ENTITLED TO PURSUE ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDAL BASIS, AND UNLESS YOU AND THE COMPANY AGREE OTHERWISE IN WRITING, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE INDIVIDUAL PARTY’S CLAIMS WITH ANY OTHER PARTY’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR COLLECTIVE PROCEEDING.
You and the Company are each responsible for their respective costs relating to counsel, experts, and witnesses, and any other costs relating to the arbitration. The Company, however, will pay for the arbitration administrative or filing fees, including the arbitrator and/or other JAMS case management fees, for any dispute of $75,000 U.S. Dollars or less, unless the claim is determined by the arbitrator to be frivolous. Otherwise, the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures and the JAMS Policy on Consumer Arbitrations Pursuant to Pre-Dispute Clauses, Minimum Standards of Procedural Fairness regarding costs and payment apply.
Unless you and the Company agree otherwise in writing, the arbitration will take place in the county or Province of your billing address.
An arbitration award and any judgment confirming it apply only to that specific case; it cannot be used in any other case except to enforce the award itself.
IF FOR SOME REASON THE PROHIBITION ON CLASS AND/OR REPRESENTATIVE ARBITRATIONS SET FORTH ABOVE CANNOT BE ENFORCED, THEN THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE WILL NOT APPLY.
If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, you and the Company agree that there will not be a jury trial. You and the Company unconditionally waive any right to trial by jury in any action, proceeding or counterclaim arising out of or relating to this Agreement in any way. In the event of litigation, this paragraph may be filed to show a written consent to a trial by the court.
If you or the Company fail to comply with this arbitration provision, the breaching party shall be liable for the costs and attorneys’ fees incurred by the other party in enforcing compliance with the arbitration agreement.

Any waiver granted herein shall not be deemed effective unless in writing, executed by the party as to whom enforcement of the waiver is sought.

If any provision of these Nexia Terms is prohibited or unenforceable by any applicable law, the provision shall be ineffective only to the extent and for the duration of the prohibition of unenforceability, without invalidating any of the remaining provisions.
The obligations of you under these Nexia Terms that by their nature would continue beyond the termination of these Nexia Terms including, but not limited to, those sections relating to Fees and Indemnification will survive any termination.
In the event the Company seeks legal action against you for collection of any Fees or to enforce its rights and your obligations under these Nexia Terms, the Company is entitled to recover from you its reasonable costs and expenses including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred as a result.
