13. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration.
13.4 Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail or Federal Express (signature required), or if we do not have a physical address on file for you, by submitting a form here: TOS Contact. The Notice must: (i)describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii)set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, you or Sponsor may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Sponsor must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If our dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, Sponsor will pay you: (a)the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any; (b)the last written settlement amount offered by Sponsor in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award; or (c)$1,000, whichever is greater.
13.6 No Class Actions. YOU AND SPONSOR AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Sponsor agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
13.7 Modifications. If Sponsor makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to Sponsor’s address for Notice), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) days of the change to Sponsor’s address for Notice, in which case your account with Sponsor will immediately be terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject will survive.
