CHECK YOUR LOCAL LAWS FOR ANY RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS REGARDING THESE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS.
11. Disputes; Agreement to Individual Arbitration Governing Law. EXCEPT FOR A CLAIM THAT MAY BE BROUGHT IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT, YOU AND CHEWY AGREE TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT, SUCH AS ACCESS TO DISCOVERY, ALSO MAY BE UNAVAILABLE OR LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
Fees and Costs. Except for a demand determined by an arbitrator or court to be frivolous, brought in bad faith, or where the initiating party has failed to follow the pre-arbitration dispute resolution process below, Chewy will pay the filing fees for both parties. The AAA consumer rules will otherwise apply to determine the costs and expenses due from each party. In addition, if you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Chewy will pay up to USD $1,000 of your attorneys’ fees and costs and expenses in connection with the arbitration if the arbitrator deems the payment of such amount is necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive.
Batch Arbitration. To increase the efficiency of administration and resolution of arbitrations, in the event 100 or more similar individual arbitration demands presented by or with the assistance or coordination of the same law firm or organization are submitted to AAA or another arbitration provider (if AAA is unavailable) against Chewy within a 90-day period (or in otherwise close proximity), the arbitration provider shall (i) administer the arbitration demands in batches of 100 demands per batch (to the extent there are fewer than 100 arbitration demands left over after the batching described above, a final batch will consist of the remaining demands); (ii) designate one arbitrator for each batch; and (iii) provide for a single filing fee due per side per batch. You agree to cooperate in good faith with Chewy and AAA to implement such a “batch approach” or other similar approach to provide for an efficient resolution of claims, including the payment of single filing and administrative fees for batches of claims. This “Batch Arbitration” provision shall in no way be interpreted as authorizing class arbitration of any kind.
Location. At your election, the arbitration will take place in the county in which you reside or, if you choose, by telephone, video conference, or based on the parties’ written submissions.
Required Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution. Prior to initiating any arbitration, the initiating party will give the other party at least 60-days' advanced written notice of its intent to file for arbitration. Chewy will provide such notice by e-mail to your e-mail address on file with Chewy and you must provide such notice by e-mail to email@example.com. During such 60-day notice period, the parties will endeavor to settle amicably by mutual discussions any Covered Disputes. Failing such amicable settlement and expiration of the notice period, either party may initiate arbitration. This provision is a precondition to any arbitration demand, and any party making an arbitration demand must certify that it has complied with the requirement when filing an arbitration demand and AAA may not accept any demand without this certification.
CLASS ACTION WAIVER. CHEWY AND YOU AGREE THAT ANY COVERED DISPUTE HEREUNDER WILL BE SUBMITTED TO ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS ONLY (EXCEPT AS SET FORTH IN THE “BATCH ARBITRATION” PROVISION DESCRIBED ABOVE). NEITHER CHEWY NOR YOU ARE ENTITLED TO ARBITRATE ANY COVERED DISPUTE AS A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY ACTION AND THE ARBITRATOR(S) WILL HAVE NO AUTHORITY TO PROCEED ON A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL BASIS (EXCEPT AS SET FORTH IN THE “BATCH ARBITRATION” PROVISION DESCRIBED ABOVE).
If any provision of the agreement to arbitrate in this section is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced (but in no case will there be a class, representative or private attorney general arbitration).
Miscellaneous. Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, we agree that if Chewy makes any future material change to this dispute resolution provision, it will not apply to any individual claim(s) for which you had already provided notice to Chewy. In the event that this arbitration agreement does not apply to a given dispute, then the parties agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in Broward County, Florida to resolve such claims.
