18. Dispute Resolution

Binding Arbitration

If you, on the one hand, and Anker and Company Parties (collectively, “Arbitration Parties”), on the other hand, cannot resolve a dispute or other Claim through negotiations, any party may elect to have the dispute or Claim finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other(s).

You acknowledge that without this provision, you would have the right to sue in court with a jury trial or to participate in a class action.

The language in this Agreement shall be interpreted in accordance with its fair meaning and not strictly for or against either party. We have branches in the United States and Europe, this Terms of Use will be governed by local laws and regulations.

The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to resolve, except that issues relating to the enforceability of the arbitration provision are for a Court of Competent Jurisdiction to resolve. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through document submission, through telephone, or online. The arbitrator will issue a decision in writing, but need only provide a statement of reasons if requested by a party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. The Arbitration Parties may litigate to compel arbitration in court, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to modify, confirm, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. The arbitrator shall award costs to the prevailing party (including, without limitation, fees, expenses, and reasonable attorneys' fees) at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party, within 14 days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits.

Restrictions Against Joinder of Claims

You and the Arbitration Parties agree that any arbitration shall be limited to each Claim individually. Parties to arbitration under this agreement may only bring claims against the other in your or an Arbitration Party’s individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding.

If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable in a Court of Competent Jurisdiction, the Claim will still be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration upon the election of either party, and any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other(s). In addition: (1) no arbitration shall be joined with any other arbitration, and (2) there is no right for any Claim to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to employ class action procedures, and (3) there is no right of authority for any dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf either of the general public or any other individuals.

Remedies in Aid of Arbitration; Equitable Relief

This agreement to arbitrate will not preclude you or the Arbitration Parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration, including without limitation orders to stay a court action, compel arbitration, or confirm an arbitral award, from a Court of Competent Jurisdiction. Furthermore, this agreement to arbitrate will not preclude you or the Arbitration Parties from applying to a Court of Competent Jurisdiction for a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, or other interim or conservatory relief, as necessary.

The language in this Agreement shall be interpreted in accordance with its fair meaning and not strictly for or against either party.
