DISPUTE RESOLUTION

APPLICABLE LAW

You agree that federal laws and the laws of the State of California, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and Bümo.

INITIAL DISPUTE RESOLUTION

We are available by email at circle@hellobumo.com for any concerns you may have regarding your use of the BümoCircle Platform. Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner. The parties shall use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.

Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with Bümo and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.

APPLICABILITY OF ARBITRATION AGREEMENT

You agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your access or use of the Site, the BümoCircle Platform or any aspect of your relationship with Bümo, 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 Bümo 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). This Arbitration Agreement will apply, without limitation, to all claims that arose or were asserted before the effective date of this Agreement or any prior version of this 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 letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to 845 Cordova Street, Pasadena, CA 91101. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, will be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other claims will be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. JAMS’s rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, Bümo will pay them for you.

AUTHORITY OF ARBITRATOR

The arbitrator will 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 Bümo. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator will have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator will 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 will 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 BUMO 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 Bümo are instead electing that all claims and disputes will be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in this Section. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow these Terms 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 CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR 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 Los Angeles, California. All other claims will 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: circle@hellobumo.com within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your BümoCircle username (if any), the email address you used to set up your BümoCircle account (if you have one), 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 this Section, 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 will be of no force and effect and will be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement will continue in full force and effect.

SURVIVAL OF AGREEMENT

This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Bümo.

MODIFICATION

Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Bümo 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 Bümo at the following address: circle@bumocircle.com.
