We reserve the right to deny access to any communication service or to violate the rights of others who we believe violate that agreement or who, in our view, impair the ability of others to use our service. We will comply with the requirements of the law for the disclosure of messages to others, including law enforcement. This visitor agreement was interpreted in accordance with Maryland state laws and in accordance with Maryland state laws, regardless of its conflict of laws. By using this service, you accept exclusive jurisdiction over the State and Federal Courts of Baltimore City or Maryland County for any litigation arising from or related to this agreement or service. Arbitration: You and the Sinclair affiliate that manages the service agree that this agreement relates to interstate commerce and that the federal arbitration law applies. All arbitration proceedings are conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). AAA rules are available on www.adr.org or by phone at 1-800-778-7879. If the right to arbitration is less than $75,000, the AAA`s complementary procedures apply to consumer litigation. If the claim is $75,000 or more, the commercial arbitration rules apply. In the event of a conflict between the AAA rules and this dispute settlement agreement, the dispute settlement agreement is monitored.
To initiate an arbitration procedure, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describe your rights to email@example.com. You must also comply with the AAA rules regarding the undertaking of an arbitration procedure. We pay all registration fees and the start of arbitration fees, but you are liable for your own legal fees and fees, unless the arbitrator has decided otherwise in accordance with the terms of this agreement or applicable law. We will not attempt to recover our expenses and fees from you in arbitration, unless your application has been found to be light. If you pass in arbitration, we will pay your reasonable legal fees and fees. If you receive a larger arbitration award than our last written settlement offer, we will pay you $5,000 in addition to what was awarded to you in the arbitration. Arbitration will take place in a place favourable to both parties. If you are looking for less than $10,000, you can make the arbitration in person, over the phone or on the basis of a written request. Class Waiver Action: You agree that all disputes or disputes between us will be resolved individually and that there will be no class actions, representatives or consolidated in arbitration proceedings.
If you or we make an application in a small claims court, the class action waiver applies and neither party can claim a class or agent claim. In addition, neither you nor we, as members of the class, may participate in a class action if the group action asserts rights that would fall within the scope of this arbitration agreement, if they were directly invoked by you or by us. Notwithstanding the above, this arbitration agreement does not prohibit you from participating in a judgment or settlement of disputes brought by a federal, regional or local government on behalf of You or Us, except for litigation brought by a Relateur or a party as a private lawyer. We agree that this waiver of class action is an essential element of our arbitration agreement and that if this waiver of class action is found to be unenforceable by a court or arbitrator, the entire arbitration agreement in this section does not apply to claims or disputes between you and us.
