Mandatory Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
- Arbitrator Authority: The arbitrator’s authority is governed by this arbitration agreement. You and RBO agree that the arbitrator may award the same relief that a court of competent jurisdiction could, but the arbitrator may not award declaratory or injunctive relief that extends beyond you and your dealings with RBO. An arbitrator may award attorneys’ fees and costs to the prevailing party if a court would be authorized to do so under applicable law.
- Arbitration Procedures: You and RBO agree that your agreement affects interstate commerce, and the Federal Arbitration Act applies. All arbitrations shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The AAA’s rules are available on its website at adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. If the Claim asserted in arbitration is for less than $75,000, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will apply. If the claim is for more than $75,000, then the Commercial Rules will apply. If there is a conflict between the AAA Rules and this arbitration agreement, then this arbitration agreement shall control. For claims less than $75,000, RBO will pay all filing fees and costs associated with commencing an arbitration, but you will be responsible for paying your own attorneys’ fees, unless you prevail in the arbitration and the arbitrator finds that you are entitled to recover attorneys’ fees under the law. The arbitration will be held in a mutually agreeable and convenient location.
- Governing Law: This Website is controlled by RBO from our offices located in the state of Florida, USA. It can be accessed by most countries around the world. As each country has laws that may differ from those of Florida, by accessing our Website, you agree that the statutes and laws of Florida, without regard to the conflict of laws and the United Nations Convention on the International Sales of Goods, will apply to all matters relating to the use of this Website and the purchase of any products or services through this site.
- Survival: This arbitration agreement survives the termination of this Agreement between you and RBO.
Jury Trial Waiver
- You and RBO expressly and knowingly waive the right to a trial by jury. This means that if for any reason the arbitration agreement contained above is not enforced or is found inapplicable, our claims against each other will be resolved by a judge rather than a jury.
