Choice of Law; Arbitration Clause and Class Action Waiver – Important – Please Review as This Affects Your Legal Rights

These Terms shall be deemed to have been entered into and shall be construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of North Carolina as applied to contracts made and to be performed entirely within North Carolina, without giving effect to the state’s conflicts of law statute.

Except for any disputes, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, demands or proceedings (collectively, “Disputes”) in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, YOU AND VIVA CHICKEN AGREE (A) TO WAIVE YOUR AND VIVA CHICKEN’S RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO HAVE ANY AND ALL DISPUTES ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS, OR THE SERVICES, RESOLVED IN A COURT, AND (B) TO WAIVE YOUR AND VIVA CHICKEN’S RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL.  Instead, you and Viva Chicken agree to arbitrate Disputes through binding arbitration (which is the referral of a dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it instead of having the dispute decided by a judge or jury in court) conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the arbitration rules in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (the “AAA Rules”) and under the rules set forth in these Terms.  If there is a conflict between the AAA Rules and the rules set forth in these Terms, the rules set forth in these Terms will govern.

Unless the parties agree otherwise, the arbitration will be conducted in Charlotte, North Carolina. Each party will be responsible for paying any filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with the AAA Rules.  The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses.  Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.  ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.  YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL.

You and Viva Chicken agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 17 shall be both substantively and procedurally governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.

YOU AND VIVA CHICKEN EACH AGREE TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTES ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE ANY DISPUTES ON A CLASS OR CONSOLIDATED BASIS OR IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY.

Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms.
