Process. In the event of any dispute between Parties arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the following sequential dispute resolution process is agreed to by the Parties:
Written notice of a claim or demand for breach, violation or some other assertion of a contractual or legal right (“Dispute”) shall be made by the claiming party to the other party in accordance with any notice requirements applicable to either party as stated in this Agreement;
No later than seven business days after receipt of written notice of a Dispute, representatives of both parties with authority to resolve the Dispute in full on behalf of their respective Party shall meet and confer with one another in a good faith effort to resolve the Dispute;
If such meeting of the authorized representatives fails to resolve the Dispute in full, the Parties shall, as a condition precedent to binding arbitration, participate in a mediation administered by the American Arbitration Association, the locale for which shall be New York, New York; and
In the event the Parties’ Dispute is not resolved through mediation, then the Parties agree to submit such Dispute, or that part of the Dispute not resolved through mediation, to binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association. Mediation being a condition precedent to binding arbitration, neither party shall file a demand for arbitration with the AAA, until mediation is concluded, unless such demand must be filed to preserve claims that may otherwise expire or be barred by any legal or contractual limitations period applicable to the claim or demand. In such case, an arbitration demand may be filed in advance of mediation or its completion but only to avoid expiration or barring of legal rights or claims, and mediation or its completion shall precede the selection of arbitrators and commencement of any arbitration activities.
Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. After following the sequential dispute resolution process set forth in Section 13.1, you agree that any dispute or claim relating to or arising out of in any way to your access or use of the Application, to any products sold or distributed through the Application, Website, and Services, or to any aspect of your relationship with Tackle, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify; and (2) you or Tackle may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents).
IF YOU AGREE TO ARBITRATION WITH Tackle, YOU ARE AGREEING IN ADVANCE THAT YOU WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN OR SEEK TO RECOVER MONETARY OR OTHER RELIEF IN ANY LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST Tackle ALLEGING CLASS, COLLECTIVE, AND/OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIMS ON YOUR BEHALF. INSTEAD, BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU MAY BRING YOUR CLAIMS AGAINST Tackle IN AN INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION PROCEEDING. IF SUCCESSFUL ON SUCH CLAIMS, YOU COULD BE AWARDED MONEY OR OTHER RELIEF BY AN ARBITRATOR. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING WHETHER TO ACCEPT THE TERMS, INCLUDING THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
Arbitration Rules and Forum. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a demand requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent: United Corporate Services, Inc., 874 Walker Road, Suite C, Dover, Delaware 19904. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $75,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to AAA’s most current version of the Expedited Arbitration Rules and procedures; all other claims shall be subject to AAA’s most current version of the Commercial Arbitration Rules. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay AAA’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from AAA, Tackle will pay them for you. In addition, Tackle will reimburse all such AAA’s filing, 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 country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. If You decline to choose where and how to have the arbitration conducted pursuant to this paragraph, the locale for the arbitration shall be New York, New York. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (a) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement and (b) resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Tackle. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties unless mutually agreed to by Tackle. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and the Agreement (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.
Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND Tackle HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and Tackle are instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 13.1 above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER USER. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a given claim for relief, then the claim must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the State or Federal Courts located in the State of New York. All other claims shall be arbitrated.
30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to: hello@Tacklerenovation.com, within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, the email address you used to set up your Account, and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.
Severability. Except as provided in Section 13.6, if any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Tackle.
Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Tackle makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, you may reject that change within thirty (30) days of such change becoming effective by writing Tackle at the following address: Tackle, 45 Main Street, Suite 206, Brooklyn, New York 11201.

Such notice shall be deemed given when received by Tackle by letter delivered by nationally recognized overnight delivery service or first class postage prepaid mail at the above address.
Waiver. Any waiver or failure to enforce any provision of the Agreement on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion.
Severability. If any portion of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intention of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.
Export Control. You may not use, export, import, or transfer the Services except as authorized by U.S. law, the laws of the jurisdiction in which you obtained the Services, and any other applicable laws. In particular, but without limitation, the Services may not be exported or re- exported (a) into any United States embargoed countries, or (b) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Denied Person’s List or Entity List.
