9. Arbitration, Class-Action Waiver and Jury Waiver
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS CAREFULLY BECAUSE THEY REQUIRE YOU TO AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN US THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION.
Waiver of Jury Trial
ALMIRALL AND YOU EACH AGREE TO WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JUDGE OR JURY FOR ALL DISPUTES, EXCEPT FOR DISPUTES RELATING TO THE ENFORCEMENT OR INFRINGEMENT OF YOUR OR OUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS (SUCH AS COPYRIGHTS, TRADEMARKS, DOMAINS, LOGOS, TRADE DRESS, TRADE SECRETS, AND PATENTS). Such disputes include those relating to, arising out of, or in any way in connection with your rights of privacy and publicity, will be resolved through final and binding arbitration, which is typically more limited, more efficient, and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. Almirall and you agree not to combine a dispute that is subject to arbitration under this Agreement with a dispute that is not eligible for arbitration under this Agreement.
Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions
ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS. CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If, however, this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither you nor we are entitled to arbitration; instead all claims and disputes will be resolved in a court as set forth herein.
Required Use of AAA
You agree that the arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules in effect at the time the arbitration is started, including the Optional Rules for Emergency Measures of Protection and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (together, the “AAA Rules”). The arbitration will be presided over by a single arbitrator selected in accordance with the AAA Rules. The AAA Rules, information regarding initiating a dispute, and a description of the arbitration process are available at www.adr.org. The arbitrator will decide whether a dispute can be arbitrated. The location of the arbitration and the allocation of fees and costs for such arbitration shall be determined in accordance with the AAA Rules.
Place to File Permitted Court Actions
If your dispute is related to intellectual property rights, or if the arbitration agreement is found to be unenforceable, you and Almirall agree and consent that such disputes will be resolved in the federal or state courts in Chester County (Pennsylvania) and that agree to submit to personal jurisdiction and venue of the federal and state courts located in Chester County (Pennsylvania).
Time Limit to Start Arbitration
We and you agree that for any dispute (except intellectual property disputes) must commence an arbitration proceeding within one year after the dispute first arose; otherwise, such dispute is permanently barred. This means that if we or you do not commence an arbitration within one year after the dispute first arose, the arbitration will be dismissed as untimely.
Arbitration Agreement Survival
This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Almirall.
