5. DISPUTE RESOLUTION FOR US RESIDENTS
These Terms will be governed, construed, and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflict of laws rules except that the arbitration provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act as stated herein.
Resolution of Any Dispute
In the event a dispute arises between you and Buffalo Lodging, we want to provide you with an efficient, neutral and cost-effective means of resolving the dispute. Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by contacting our customer care at 718-344-4435 or writing us at 3000 Davenport Avenue, Suite 101, Canton, MA 02021. If, however, there is an issue that needs to be resolved, the following provisions of this Section 5 describe how both of us will proceed.
Limitation of Legal Remedies
If there is a dispute that remains unresolved, INSTEAD OF SUING IN COURT, YOU AND BUFFALO LODGING EACH AGREE TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION PURSUANT TO THE JAMS ARBITRATION RULES AND PROCEDURES, ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, WITHOUT CLASS RELIEF, EXCEPT FOR DISPUTES PERTAINING TO BUFFALO LODGING’S INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS; STATUTORY CLAIMS THAT PURSUANT TO LAW ARE NOT ARBITRABLE; INDEMNIFICATION; CONTRIBUTION; INTERPLEADER; OR INJUNCTIVE RELIEF ARISING OUT OF A CLAIM. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes claims based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory (“Claim(s)”). The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with some exceptions under the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. 1, et seq., and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction.
Jury Trial Waiver
YOU AND BUFFALO LODGING EACH VOLUNTARILY WAIVE THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN RESOLVING ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN US ARISING OUT OF THESE TERMS OR THE SERVICES.
Class Action Waiver
YOU AND BUFFALO LODGING EACH AGREE THAT CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER MAY ONLY BE BROUGHT IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. All arbitrations under these Terms must be conducted on an individual (and not a class-wide) basis, and an arbitrator will have no authority to award class-wide relief. You acknowledge and agree that these Terms specifically prohibit you from commencing any legal proceedings as a representative of others, participating in a class, representative, or collective action as a class representative, class member or an opt-in party, acting as a private attorney general, or joining or consolidating Claims with claims or proceedings brought by any other person (“Class Action Waiver”).
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other a written Notice of Dispute describing the nature and basis of the Claim and setting forth the specific relief sought (a “Notice”). All Notices to Buffalo Lodging must be sent to the following address: 3000 Davenport Avenue, Suite 101, Canton, MA 02021. All notices to you will be sent to the email or street address provided via the Contact page on the Site or in your account, if available. Upon receipt of such Notice, the receiving party will have a 60 day period in which it may satisfy the Claim against it by fully curing the Claim, providing all the relief requested in the Notice, or entering into a settlement to resolve the Claim to the mutual satisfaction of the parties. After the expiration of such 60 day cure period, you or Buffalo Lodging may commence an arbitration proceeding. Unless otherwise agreed to by you and Buffalo Lodging in writing, the arbitration will be governed and conducted by JAMS before a single arbitrator with substantial experience in the internet industry and will follow substantive law in adjudicating the dispute, except that this section will be construed as a written agreement to arbitrate pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). You and Buffalo Lodging agree that this section satisfies the writing requirement of the FAA. The arbitration of any claim will be conducted in the State of New York for any non-frivolous claim that does not exceed $10,000.00, you will have the choice as to whether the hearing is conducted in person or by telephone. Each party will pay the fees and costs of its own counsel, experts and witnesses. The JAMS rules are available on its website at www.jamsadr.com. To the extent that this dispute resolution section conflicts with JAMS minimum standards for procedural fairness, the JAMS rules and/or minimum standards for arbitration procedures in that regard will control. Neither party will sue the other party other than as provided herein or for enforcement of this clause or for the arbitrator’s award; and any such suit may be brought only in Federal District Court or, if any such court lacks jurisdiction, in any state court that has jurisdiction. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court, will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, unconscionability, arbitrability or enforceability of these Terms including any claim that all or any part of these Terms are void or voidable. However, the preceding sentence will not apply to the clause entitled “Class Action Waiver”.
All parties, including related third parties, will retain the right to seek adjudication in a small claims tribunal for disputes within the scope of such tribunal’s jurisdiction. Any dispute, which cannot be adjudicated within the jurisdiction of a small claims tribunal, will be resolved by binding arbitration, with the exception of any Claim or action for indemnification, contribution, interpleader, or injunctive relief arising out of a Claim, which Claims or actions will not be subject to arbitration. Any appeal of a judgment from a small claims tribunal will be resolved by binding arbitration.
6. DISPUTE RESOLUTION FOR NON-US RESIDENTS
If any controversy, allegation, or claim (including any non-contractual claim) arises out of or relates to the Services or Terms and you are a non-U.S. resident, then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provide us but if no such information exists or if such information is not current, then we have no obligation under this section. Your notice to us must be sent to us at 3000 Davenport Avenue, Suite 101, Canton, MA 02021.For a period of 60 days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, Buffalo Lodging and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the dispute, though nothing will require either you or Buffalo Lodging to resolve the dispute on terms either you or Buffalo Lodging, in each of our sole discretion, are unsatisfactory. Nothing in this section will prevent a party from pursuing their claims in court or another complaint process.
