12. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration

  • Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and USADA in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, and except as described in Sections 12(b) and 12(c), you and USADA agree that every dispute arising in connection with these Terms will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND USADA ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.

 

  • Exceptions. Despite the provisions of Section 12(a), nothing in these Terms will be deemed to restrict or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court to the extent that the applicable requirements have been met; (b) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, provincial or local agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration; or (d) to file suit in any court of competent jurisdiction to address an intellectual property infringement claim.

 

  • Opt-Out. If you do not wish to resolve disputes by binding arbitration, you may opt out of the provisions of this Section 12 within 30 days after the date that you agree to these Terms by sending a letter to United States Anti-Doping Agency, Attention: Legal Department – Arbitration Opt-Out, 5555 Tech Center Drive, Suite 200, Colorado Springs, CO 80919 that specifies: your full legal name, the email address associated with your account on the Services, and a statement that you wish to opt out of arbitration (“Opt-Out Notice”). Once USADA receives your Opt-Out Notice, this Section 12 (other than Section 12 (b)) will be null and void, and in that case, the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 13 will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms or the Services. The remaining provisions of these Terms will not be affected by your Opt-Out Notice.

 

  • Arbitration. Any arbitration between you and USADA will be settled under the Federal Arbitration Act and administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its (i) Arbitration Rules if You are located in the United States or (ii) International Arbitration Rules if You are located outside of the United States (collectively, “AAA Rules”) as modified by these Terms. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting USADA. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in New York County, New York, but if the claim is for $10,000 USD or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (a) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; or (b) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based.

 

  • Notice of Arbitration; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified or registered mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if that other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail (“Notice of Arbitration”). USADA’s address for Notice is: United States Anti-Doping Agency, 5555 Tech Center Drive, Suite 200, Colorado Springs, CO 80919. The Notice of Arbitration must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within thirty (30) days after the Notice of Arbitration is received, either you or USADA may commence an arbitration proceeding. All arbitration proceedings between the parties will be confidential unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or USADA must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the arbitrator awards you an amount higher than the last written settlement amount offered by USADA in settlement of the dispute prior to the award, then USADA will pay to you the higher of: (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator; or (ii) $10,000.00 USD.

 

  • Fees; Prevailing Party. If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, USADA will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $10,000 USD, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. The party prevailing in any arbitration shall be entitled to receive in addition to all other damages to which it may be entitled, the costs incurred by such party in conducting the suit, action or proceeding, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses and court costs. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.

 

  • No Class Actions. YOU AND USADA AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and USADA otherwise agree, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.

 

  • Modifications to this Arbitration Provision. If USADA makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to USADA’s address for Notice of Arbitration, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to USADA’s address for Notice of Arbitration, in which case (i) your account with USADA and your right to access and use to the Services will be immediately terminated and (ii) this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected will survive.

 

  • Enforceability. If Section 12(h) or the entirety of this Section 12 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 12 (other than Section 12(b)) will be null and void and, in that case, the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 13 will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms or the Services.

 

  • YOU AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION THAT YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES, OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.

13. Governing Law and Jurisdiction

  2. Any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of, or related to, these Terms or the Sites or Services shall be instituted exclusively in the federal courts of the United States or the courts of the State of Colorado, although we retain the right to bring any suit, action, or proceeding against you for breach of these Terms in your country of residence or any other relevant country.

No waiver by USADA of any term or condition set out in these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of USADA to assert a right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

If any provision of these Terms is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms will continue in full force and effect.
