Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, you agree that any dispute between you and Awning arising out of or relating to this Agreement the Awning Service (or any part thereof) (a “Dispute”) shall be governed by the provisions set forth in this Section 17.

17.3. Informal Resolution.

Before resorting to formal dispute resolution in accordance with this Section 17, you agree to first contact Awning directly using the contact information provided below to seek an informal resolution of any Dispute. In the event a Dispute is not resolved within thirty (30) days after submission, you or Awning may institute arbitration in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 17.

17.4. Dispute Resolution.

Except as set forth in Sections 17.6 and 17.7 below, any Dispute that cannot be resolved through informal resolution in accordance with Section 17.3 above shall be resolved exclusively through final, binding, and confidential arbitration, which shall be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, “AAARules”) as modified by this Section 17.4.

The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement. All arbitration proceedings between the parties will be confidential unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Awning must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the arbitrator awards you an amount higher than the last written settlement amount offered by Awning in settlement of the dispute prior to the award, Awning will pay to you the lower of: (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator; or (ii) $1,000 USD.

17.5. Notice of Arbitration; Instituting Proceedings.

A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if that other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail (“Notice”). You may send notices to Awning using the contact information provided below. The Notice must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). A party electing arbitration must initiate proceedings by filing an arbitration demand with the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting Awning.

17.6. Opting-Out of Arbitration.

The notice must include your full legal name, the email address used to register an Account (if applicable), and a statement that you wish to opt out of arbitration (“Opt-Out Notice”). Once Awning receives your Opt-Out Notice, the agreement to arbitrate will be void and the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 17.9 will govern any action arising out of or related to this Agreement. The remaining provisions of this Section 17 will not be affected by your Opt-Out Notice.

17.7. Exception to Arbitration.

Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate any of Awning’s intellectual property rights, Awning may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court with competent jurisdiction in any country, including in the State of Texas, United States of America, without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute process set forth in this Section 17, and you hereby consent to the personal jurisdiction and exclusive venue in such courts.

17.8. No Class Actions.

YOU MAY ONLY RESOLVE A DISPUTE WITH AWNING ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND MAY NOT BRING A CLAIM AS A PLAINTIFF OR A CLASS MEMBER IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ARBITRATIONS AREN'T ALLOWED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.

17.9. Venue.

17.10. Time Limitation to Bring Claims.

Any waiver of any provision of this Agreement must be in writing and executed by both parties. The failure of either party to exercise any right provided for by this Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver of that right. If any term or provision of this Agreement is determined to be illegal, unenforceable, or invalid in whole or in part for any reason, that provision shall be stricken from this Agreement and shall not affect the legality, enforceability or validity of the remainder of the provisions set forth in this Agreement. The parties acknowledge and agree that they are dealing with each other as independent contractors and nothing in this Agreement and its performance shall be construed as creating a joint venture or agency between Awning and you.
