Mediation & Arbitration
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT AND TO HAVE A JURY HEAR YOUR CLAIMS. IT CONTAINS PROCEDURES FOR MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
Dispute Resolution. If a dispute arises under this Agreement, the parties hereby agree to first attempt to resolve said dispute by submitting the matter to a mutually agreed-upon mediator in the State of Louisiana. The parties agree to share any mediation costs and fees, other than their respective attorney fees, equally.
AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE: Any disputes arising out of or relating to this Affiliate Partner Agreement that are not resolved through mediation shall be submitted to binding arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association, and each party hereby consents to any such disputes being so resolved. Judgment on the award so rendered in any such arbitration may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL: By electing to resolve all claims and disputes via binding arbitration, THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO APPEAR IN COURT AND HOLD A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. Should any litigation arise between you and Renegade Enterprises, LLC in any court, state or federal, to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND RENEGADE ENTERPRISES, LLC WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, and elect the dispute to be resolved by a judge.
ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS: Arbitration is a much quicker, cheaper, and more informal process than a lawsuit. In arbitration proceedings, the case is decided by an arbitrator, instead of a judge or a jury. The arbitrator can award the same damages and relief that a court can, and his decision is final and binding. In the United States, arbitration procedures are governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. It is recommended that you familiarize yourself with that legislation, or consult with an attorney, in order to get an idea of how arbitration procedures work.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE.
If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced.
No Agency. Notwithstanding any provision hereof, it is understood by both parties that each party to this Agreement is and at all times shall act as an independent contractor, and nothing in this Agreement shall create any agency, employment, partnership, joint venture, franchise, sales representative, or similar relationship between the Parties. Neither party shall bind or attempt to bind the other to any contract or in any respect, and any contracts or transactions entered into in violation of this provision shall be void and unenforceable. Company will not provide fringe benefits of any kind to Affiliate, including health insurance, retirement, paid vacation, or any other employee benefits. As an independent contractor, Affiliate is solely responsible for all taxes, withholdings, and other statutory or contractual obligations of any kind applicable to Affiliate’s business.
Choice of Law. This Agreement shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Louisiana, excluding that State’s choice-of-law principles, and all claims relating to or arising out of this Agreement, or the breach thereof, whether sounding in contract, tort or otherwise, shall likewise be governed by the laws of the State of Louisiana, excluding that State’s choice-of-law principles.
Choice of Forum. The parties hereby agree that all demands, claims, actions, causes of action, suits, proceedings, including any arbitration, mediation and/or litigation between the parties, to the extent permitted under this Agreement and arising out of same, shall be filed, initiated, and conducted in the State of Louisiana. Unless the provisions of this Agreement exclude litigation as a remedy in a dispute by the Parties, it is hereby agreed that any litigation arising out of this Agreement must be filed and litigated in a state or federal court located in the State of Louisiana. In connection with the foregoing, to the extent that litigation is a permissible method of dispute resolution under this Agreement, each party hereby consents and submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of those courts for purposes of any such proceeding, and waive any claims or defenses of lack of jurisdiction of, or proper venue by, such court.
Attorney Fees. In the event that any arbitration, suit or action is instituted to resolve a dispute pertaining to matters covered under this Agreement, or enforce any provision thereof, the prevailing party in any such dispute or proceeding shall be entitled to recover from the losing party all fees, costs and expenses of enforcing any right of such prevailing party under or with respect to this Agreement, including without limitation, all reasonable fees and expenses of attorneys and accountants, court costs, and expenses of any appeals.
Notices. All notices and other communications required or permitted under this Agreement shall be in writing, and shall be deemed delivered when personally delivered, sent by e-mail or confirmed fax, or forty-eight hours after being deposited in the United States mail as certified or registered U.S. mail with postage prepaid, addressed to the address of the party to be noticed as set forth on the signature page of this Agreement, or to such other address as such party last provided to the other by written notice confirming to the requirements of this paragraph.
Entire Agreement. This Agreement, together with all attachments, schedules, exhibits and other documents that are incorporated by reference herein, constitute the entire agreement between the parties, represent the final expression of the parties’ intent and agreement relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, contain all the terms and conditions that the parties agreed to relating to the subject matter, and replaces and supersedes all prior discussions, understandings, agreements, negotiations and any and all prior written agreements between the parties. Any subsequent changes to the terms of this Agreement may be amended or waived only with the written consent of both parties, and shall be effective upon being signed by both parties.
Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is declared by any court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, void, unenforceable or invalid for any reason under applicable law, the remaining parts of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect, and shall continue to be valid and enforceable. If a court finds that an unenforceable portion of this Agreement may be made enforceable by limiting such provision, then such provision shall be deemed written, construed and enforced as so limited.
Assignment. Affiliate may not assign this Agreement without the prior written consent of the Company. Subject to that restriction, this Agreement will be binding on, inure to the benefit of, and enforceable against the parties and their respective successors and assigns.
No Waiver. The failure of any party to insist upon strict compliance with any of the terms, covenants, duties, agreements or conditions set forth in this Agreement, or to exercise any right or remedy arising from a breach thereof, shall not be deemed to constitute waiver of any such terms, covenants, duties, agreements or conditions, or any breach thereof.
Equitable Relief. The parties agree that any breach of either party’s obligations under this Agreement, including but not limited to those obligations relating to trademarks, service marks or trade names, confidentiality, links or the removal of links, and/or user data, may result in irreparable injury for which there may be no adequate remedy at law. Therefore, the parties agree that, subject to the limitation of liability provisions of this Agreement, in the event of any breach or threatened breach of a party’s obligations hereunder, the aggrieved party will be entitled to seek equitable relief in addition to its other available legal remedies in a court of competent jurisdiction.
Force Majeure.
