PLEASE READ THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT SECTION (“ARBITRATION AGREEMENT”) CAREFULLY. IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHTS TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT AND TO HAVE A JURY HEAR YOUR CLAIMS.
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to Your Use of any Penguin Benefits Services, or to these Terms, or the breach thereof, will be settled by binding, individualized arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) You may assert claims in small claims court if Your claims qualify ; and (2) You or Penguin Benefits may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights. This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all claims that arose or were asserted before the “Last Updated” date of these Terms. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this Arbitration Agreement.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, You must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing Your claim to Penguin Benefits, 1750 Meridian Ave #5614, San Jose, CA 95150, or to firstname.lastname@example.org. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those Rules or pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. Judgment on the Award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. JAMS’s rules are available at https://www.jamsadr.com/ or by calling 1-800-352-5267. If the arbitrator finds that You cannot afford to pay JAMS's filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and You cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, Penguin Benefits will pay them for You. In addition, We will reimburse all such JAM’s filling, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.
You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where You live or at another mutually agreed location.
YOU AND PENGUIN BENEFITS AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration YOU AND PENGUIN BENEFITS AGREE TO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
