19. Dispute Resolution
YOU AND MABELS AGREE TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT, SUCH AS ACCESS TO DISCOVERY, ALSO MAY BE UNAVAILABLE OR LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.
Any dispute between you and MABELS and its agents, employees, officers, directors, principals, successors, assigns, subsidiaries or affiliates (collectively for purposes of this section, “MABELS”) arising from or relating to these Terms and their interpretation or the breach, termination or validity thereof, the relationships which result from these Terms, including disputes about the validity, scope or enforceability of this arbitration provision (collectively, "Covered Disputes") will be settled by binding arbitration in Powhatan County, Commonwealth of Virginia administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules, in effect on the date thereof. Prior to initiating any arbitration, the initiating party will give the other party at least 60-days' advanced written notice of its intent to file for arbitration. MABELS will provide such notice by e-mail to your e-mail address on file with MABELS and you must provide such notice by e-mail to with “Legal Dispute” appearing in the subject line. During such 60-day notice period, the parties will endeavor to settle amicably by mutual discussions any Covered Disputes. Failing such amicable settlement and expiration of the notice period, either party may initiate arbitration.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. If, however, you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, MABELS will pay as much of the filing, administration and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive for you. If the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration are frivolous, you agree to reimburse MABELS for all fees associated with the arbitration that MABELS paid on your behalf, which you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA's rules.
The arbitrator will have the power to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity and any award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator will not, however, have the power to award punitive or exemplary damages, the right to which each party hereby waives, and the arbitrator will apply applicable law and the provisions of these Terms and the failure to do so will be deemed an excess of arbitral authority and grounds for judicial review. MABELS and you agree that any Covered Dispute will be submitted to arbitration on an individual basis only. Neither MABELS nor you are entitled to arbitrate any Covered Dispute as a class, representative or private attorney action and the arbitrator(s) will have no authority to proceed on a class, representative or private attorney general basis. If any provision of the agreement to arbitrate in this section is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced (but in no case will there be a class, representative or private attorney general arbitration). Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, notice on any claim arising from or related to these Terms must be made within one (1) year after such claim arose or be forever barred. For purposes of this section, these Terms and related transactions will be subject to and governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA).
You are solely responsible for any and all duties, taxes, levies or fees (including any sales, use or withholding taxes) imposed on or in connection with these Terms or the MABELS Online Services by any authority.
23. General Provisions
No delay or failure on the part of MABELS to enforce any part of these Terms will constitute a waiver of any of MABELS' rights under these Terms whether for past or future actions on the part of any person. Neither the receipt of any funds by MABELS nor the reliance of any person on MABELS actions will be deemed to constitute a waiver of any part of these terms. Only a specific, written waiver signed by an authorized representative of MABELS will have any legal effect whatsoever. If any provision of these Terms is determined to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable under present or future law, such provision will be deemed to be deleted without affecting the enforceability of all remaining provisions. These Terms will inure to the benefit of and will be binding upon each party’s successors and assigns. These Terms and the rights granted hereunder may be assigned by MABELS but you may not assign them without the prior express written consent of MABELS. The headings and captions contained herein are for convenience only.
