Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Bundle's sole discretion.
PLEASE READ THIS PROVISION OF THE AGREEMENT CAREFULLY. IT PROVIDES THAT ANY DISPUTE MAY BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION. ARBITRATION REPLACES THE RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO A JURY AND THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR SIMILAR PROCEEDING. IN ARBITRATION, A DISPUTE IS RESOLVED BY AN ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY. ARBITRATION PROCEDURES ARE SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN COURT PROCEDURES.
Agreement to Arbitrate: Either you or we may, without the other’s consent, elect mandatory, binding arbitration for any claim, dispute, or controversy between you and us (called “Claims”).
What Claims are subject to arbitration? All Claims arising out of, or relating to, the Site and/or the Service are subject to arbitration, including without limitation your visit to and/or use of the Site and/or the Service, and the application, enforceability, or interpretation of this Agreement and this arbitration provision. All Claims are subject to arbitration, no matter what legal theory they are based on or what remedy (damages, or injunctive or declaratory relief) they seek. This includes Claims based on contract, tort (including intentional tort), fraud, agency, your or our negligence, statutory or regulatory provisions, or any other sources of law; Claims made as counterclaims, cross-claims, third-party claims, interpleaders or otherwise; and Claims made independently or with other claims. A party who initiates a proceeding in court may elect arbitration with respect to any Claim advanced in that proceeding by any other party. Claims and remedies sought as part of a class action, private attorney general or other representative action are subject to arbitration on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis, and the arbitrator may award relief only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis.
Whose Claims are subject to arbitration? Not only ours and yours, but also Claims made by or against anyone connected with us or you, or claiming through us or you, such as a guardian, employee, agent, representative, affiliated company, shareholder, predecessor or successor, heir, assignee, or trustee in bankruptcy.
What time frame applies to Claims subject to arbitration? What time frame applies to Claims subject to arbitration?
Broadest interpretation. Any questions about whether Claims are subject to arbitration shall be resolved by interpreting this arbitration provision in the broadest way the law will allow it to be enforced. This arbitration provision is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (the “FAA”).
What about Claims filed in Small Claims Court? Claims filed in a small claims court are not subject to arbitration, so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only an individual (non-class, non-representative) Claim.
What about Provisional Remedies? This arbitration provision does not restrict, limit, or prohibit your or our right to obtain provisional remedies from a court such as temporary restraining or protective orders, attachments, or preliminary injunctions, including without limitation for infringement of patent, copyright, trademark or trade secret rights, or for violation of the user conduct rules set forth above or in the Bundle Code of Conduct.
How Arbitration Works
How does a party initiate arbitration? The party filing an arbitration must choose one of the following two arbitration firms and follow its rules and procedures for initiating and pursuing an arbitration: American Arbitration Association or JAMS. Any arbitration hearing that you attend will be held at a place chosen by the arbitration firm in the same city as the U.S. District Court closest to your residence, or at some other place to which you and we agree in writing. You may obtain copies of the current rules of each of the arbitration firms and forms and instructions for initiating an arbitration by contacting them as follows:
|American Arbitration Association
1633 Broadway, Floor 10
New York, NY 10019
1920 Main Street, Suite 300
Irvine, CA 92614
At any time you or we may ask an appropriate court to compel arbitration of Claims, or to stay the litigation of Claims pending arbitration, even if such Claims are part of a lawsuit, unless a trial has begun or a final judgment has been entered. Even if a party fails to exercise these rights at any particular time, or in connection with any particular Claims, that party can still require arbitration at a later time or in connection with any other Claims.
What procedures and law are applicable in arbitration? A single, neutral arbitrator will resolve Claims. The arbitrator will be either a lawyer with at least ten years experience or a retired or former judge, selected in accordance with the rules of the arbitration firm. The arbitration will follow the applicable procedures and rules of the arbitration firm in effect on the date the arbitration is filed unless those procedures and rules are inconsistent with this Agreement, in which case this Agreement will prevail. Those procedures and rules may limit the discovery available to you or us. The arbitrator shall take reasonable steps to protect private and/or confidential information when requested to do so by you or us. The arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations, will honor claims of privilege recognized at law, and will have the power to award to a party any damages or other relief provided for under applicable law. You or we may choose to have a hearing and be represented by counsel. The arbitrator will make any award in writing and, if requested by you or us, will provide a brief statement of the reasons for the award. An award in arbitration shall determine the rights and obligations between the named parties only, and only in respect of the Claims in arbitration, and shall not have any bearing on the rights and obligations of any other person, or on the resolution of any other dispute.
Who pays? Arbitration fees, including initial filing fees and arbitrator costs (“Arbitration Fees”), shall be allocated pursuant to the applicable rules of the arbitration firm, including, where applicable, those rules or standards specific to consumer disputes. You may also seek a fee waiver under the applicable rules of the arbitration firm. In addition, we may advance or reimburse your Arbitration Fees if the arbitration firm or arbitrator determines there is good reason for requiring us to do so, or if you ask us and we determine there is good reason for doing so. The arbitrator may award Arbitration Fees to either party pursuant to the applicable rules of the arbitration firm. Unless otherwise provided for by applicable law, each party will bear its own fees and expenses for attorneys, experts, and witnesses; upon request, the arbitrator may award such fees and expenses where authorized under applicable law.
Who can be a party? Claims must be brought in the name of an individual person or entity and must proceed on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. The arbitrator will not award relief for or against anyone who is not a party. If you or we require arbitration of a Claim, neither you, we, nor any other person may pursue the Claim in arbitration as a class action, private attorney general action or other representative action, nor may such Claim be pursued on your or our behalf in any litigation in any court. Claims, including assigned Claims, made by one user against Bundle and any affiliated entity or shareholder must be arbitrated in a single arbitration; but Claims made by two or more persons may not be joined or consolidated in the same arbitration absent the parties’ written consent.
When is an arbitration award final? The arbitrator’s award is final and binding on the parties unless a party appeals it in writing to the arbitration firm within fifteen days of notice of the award. The appeal must request a new arbitration before a panel of three neutral arbitrators designated by the same arbitration firm. The panel will consider all factual and legal issues anew, follow the same rules that apply to a proceeding using a single arbitrator, and make decisions based on the vote of the majority. Costs will be allocated in the same way they are allocated for arbitration before a single arbitrator. An award by a panel is final and binding on the parties after fifteen days has passed. A final and binding award is subject to judicial review and enforcement as provided by the FAA.
Survival and Severability of Terms. This arbitration provision shall survive termination or changes in the Agreement or your access to and/or use of the Site and/or the Service. If any portion of this arbitration provision is deemed invalid or unenforceable, the entire arbitration provision shall not remain in force. No portion of this arbitration provision may be amended, severed or waived absent a written agreement between you and us.
Coupons and Vouchers
The coupons or vouchers for restaurants or other retailers provided on the Site are being presented by Bundle on behalf of the applicable restaurants and retailers, but the applicable restaurant or retailer is the issuer of such coupons or vouchers and the use of such coupons or vouchers shall be subject to the term and conditions established by such restaurant or retailer.
