23. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT; CLASS WAIVER; WAIVER OF TRIAL BY JURY
Please read the following paragraphs carefully because they require you to arbitrate disputes with Elite Total Fitness and limit the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
Applicability. Any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to the Site or these Terms, including the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity of these Terms (together, “Disputes”), will be submitted to and resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis as described in these Terms (this “Arbitration Agreement”). But, in the event of any actual, alleged, or threatened violation of confidentiality or violation of Elite Total Fitness’ intellectual property or other proprietary rights, Elite Total Fitness may immediately resort to court proceedings in a court of competent jurisdiction in order to seek immediate injunctive relief without posting bond, proving damages, or meeting any similar requirement. Any institution of any action for injunctive relief will not constitute a waiver of the right or obligation of either party to submit any claim seeking relief other than injunctive relief to arbitration. This Arbitration Agreement applies to you; Elite Total Fitness Parties; their respective predecessors in interest, successors in interest, and assigns; authorized and unauthorized users or beneficiaries of the Site; and any third-party beneficiaries.
Arbitrator. Arbitration proceedings will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) before a single arbitrator chosen by agreement of the parties. If the parties fail to reach agreement on the arbitrator within 30 days after service of the demand for arbitration, the arbitrator will be chosen by the AAA. The decision of the arbitrator will be final and binding. Any final award or judgment may be filed and enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. Each party will bear its own expenses and fees (including its own attorneys’ fees and costs) arising from any arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claims were improper or frivolous, in which case the arbitrator may require you to reimburse the Elite Total Fitness Parties for certain fees and expenses in accordance with the applicable AAA rules. Any arbitration proceeding may not be consolidated or joined with any other proceeding and will not proceed as a class action. The parties understand that they would have had a right or opportunity to litigate Disputes through a court, to have a judge or jury decide their case, and to participate in a class action or other proceeding involving multiple claimants, but they have instead chosen to have all Disputes decided through individual arbitration.
Place; Federal Arbitration Act. The seat of the arbitration shall be Greenville County, South Carolina, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by all parties to the arbitration. Judgment upon any award rendered in any such arbitration may be entered in a court of competent jurisdiction. This Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce and the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Sections 1-16, will govern the interpretation, enforcement, and proceedings pursuant to this Arbitration Agreement.
Confidentiality. Any and all actions taken under this Arbitration Agreement, including all filings, orders, judgments, and awards made in any arbitration proceeding, are confidential and may not be disclosed to any third party.
Time Limitation on Claims. Arbitration proceedings must be initiated within one year after any Dispute arises; otherwise, the Dispute is permanently barred.
Any provisions of these Terms that are intended to survive termination (including any provisions regarding indemnification, limitation of our liability, or dispute resolution) will continue in effect beyond any termination of these Terms or of your access to or use of the Site.
