19. Alternative Dispute Resolution, Arbitration Agreement, and Class Action Waiver
If you are located in the United Kingdom or Europe:
Alternative Dispute Resolution: If you're unhappy with our response to a complaint and reside in the UK or Europe, you might consider referring the matter to RetailADR through their website (https://www.retailadr.org.uk/). This body, approved by the government, offers alternative dispute resolution services. There's no charge for making a complaint to them, and should their decision be unsatisfactory, you retain the right to legal action. While we don't intend to use RetailADR for initiating dispute resolution, you can, and we will participate if you do. Also, disputes can be directed to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform (https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/main/index.cfm?event=main.home2.show&lng=EN).
If you are located in the United States:
Arbitration Agreement: By utilizing the Digital Properties, both you and Bluebook Cities commit to resolving any Disputes (as defined below) through binding arbitration under the Federal Arbitration Act. Arbitration will either be through JAMS (www.jamsadr.com) or the American Arbitration Association (AAA, www.adr.org). The initiator of the arbitration gets to decide which forum to use.
Class Action Waiver: You agree that any Dispute arbitration will be on an individual basis, and not class-wide. No arbitration can be combined with another without the agreement of Bluebook Cities. Both parties agree that Disputes cannot proceed as any form of class or representative proceeding.
Definition of Dispute: A “Dispute” encompasses any disagreement or claim between you and Bluebook Cities, unless otherwise specified. Certain claims, particularly those challenging the validity of the Class Action Waiver or seeking public injunctive relief, must be decided by a competent court, not an arbitrator.
Arbitration Procedures: Either party can initiate arbitration, which will be handled by a single arbitrator. It will be an individual arbitration. Specific arbitration rules will be decided based on whether JAMS or the AAA is chosen. Arbitration can occur telephonically, through written submissions, or in person, either in your county or another mutually agreed location.
Location of Arbitration: Arbitrations can be held in New York or in your state, provided there's a JAMS or AAA presence. If we initiate, and neither JAMS nor AAA is in your state, we may choose New York. The arbitrator will apply New York law.
