9. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
9.1 Informal Process First.
You agree that in the event of any dispute between you and Frequency Therapeutics, you will first contact us and make a good faith sustained effort to resolve the dispute before resorting to arbitration under this Agreement.
9.2 Binding Arbitration.
Any dispute or claim that remains unresolved after the informal dispute resolution described in Section 9.1, except for disputes relating to the infringement of our intellectual property rights or the access or use of the Website in violation of this Agreement (a “Claim”), will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, provided that you may assert Claims in small claims court located in Suffolk County, Massachusetts if your Claims qualify.
9.3 No Judge or Jury.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of this Agreement as a court would.
9.4 Arbitrator and Rules.
The arbitration will be conducted before a neutral single arbitrator, whose decision will be final and binding, and the arbitral proceedings will be governed by the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules, Consumer Due Process Protocol, and Supplementary Procedures for Resolution of Consumer_ Related Disputes. These rules can be found on the AAA website at www.adr.org.
9.5 Starting an Arbitration.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send us a notice of dispute, in writing, setting forth your name, address and contact information, the facts of the dispute and relief requested. You must send your notice of legal dispute to us at the following address: in writing at 300 Technology Square, 8th Floor, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02139.
9.6 Format of Proceedings.
The arbitration will be conducted, at the option of the party seeking relief, by telephone, online, or based solely on written submissions.
If you initiate arbitration, your arbitration fees will be limited to the filing fee set forth in the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules. Unless the arbitrator finds the arbitration was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, Frequency Therapeutics will pay all other AAA and arbitrator’s fees and expenses.
9.8 Individual Basis; Jury Trial Waiver.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you and Frequency Therapeutics each agree that any proceeding to resolve a Claim will be conducted only in the respective party’s individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, consolidated, multiple plaintiff or representative action (“Class Action”). If for any reason a Claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and Frequency Therapeutics each waive any right to a jury trial. You and Frequency Therapeutics expressly waive any ability to maintain any Class Action in any forum. If the Claim is subject to arbitration, the arbitrator will not have authority to combine or aggregate similar claims or conduct any Class Action nor make an award to any person or entity not a party to the arbitration. Any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator.
9.9 Limitation Period.
In no event will any Claim or any other action or proceeding (including arbitration under this Section 9) be instituted more than one (1) year after the cause of action arose.
Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The United Nations Conventions on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will have no applicability.
If a court of competent jurisdiction finds the foregoing arbitration provisions invalid or inapplicable, you and Frequency Therapeutics each agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Federal and State courts located in Boston, Massachusetts, and you and Frequency Therapeutics each agree to submit to the exercise of personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any applicable dispute or claim.
9.12 Opting Out.
If you do not want to arbitrate disputes with Frequency Therapeutics and you are an individual, you may opt out of this arbitration agreement by sending an email to [email protected] within thirty (30) days of the first of the date you access or use the Website.
