If a dispute arises between You and Storenvy, We will seek to resolve the dispute as quickly as commercially reasonable. Before resorting to legal proceedings, You must first contact Us directly and work with Us to resolve a dispute. If a dispute cannot be resolved by You and We, You will have the option to pursue a claim (a "Claim") against Storenvy in accordance with one of the options provided below or as We and You otherwise agree in writing.
This Agreement shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of California as they apply to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within California between California residents, without regard to conflict of law provisions.
Option One - For any Claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than $20,000, the party requesting relief may elect to handle the Claim in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. In the event a party elects arbitration, they shall initiate such arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution ("ADR") provider mutually agreed upon by the parties in the greater San Francisco, California area. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and c) the arbitrator’s decision shall be final and not appealable to any court or any other tribunal or arbitrator(s), and shall be entered and enforceable as a judgment in a court of competent jurisdiction in San Francisco, California.
Option Two - For any other Claim other than a Claim which qualifies and is opted for by a party under option one above, such Claim may be submitted by either You or Us for arbitration to the San Francisco, California office of the American Arbitration Association. Such arbitration proceedings will be conducted in San Francisco, California and will be heard by one arbitrator in accordance with the then current commercial arbitrations rules of the American Arbitration Association. Such arbitrator will be a lawyer of recognized standing and expertise in the area of commercial transactions.
