16.BINDING ARBITRATION


READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH THE PARTIES CAN SEEK RELIEF.


16(A): Arbitration of Disputes.


In the event of any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and us of any kind relating to Products and purchases of our products (whether through the Websites or otherwise) (each, a “Dispute”), such Dispute will be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration governed under the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), subject to the Process described and defined below. For avoidance of doubt, any dispute concerning or relating to arbitrability shall be resolved exclusively by a court of law unless otherwise agreed to by the parties. NEITHER PARTY SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE SUCH DISPUTE IN COURT OR TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL, EXCEPT EITHER PARTY MAY BRING ITS DISPUTE IN ITS LOCAL SMALL CLAIMS COURT, IF PERMITTED BY THAT SMALL CLAIMS COURT RULES AND IF WITHIN SUCH COURT’S JURISDICTION. ARBITRATION IS DIFFERENT FROM COURT, AND DISCOVERY AND APPEAL RIGHTS MAY ALSO BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION. This provision shall apply, without limitation, to all Disputes that arose or were asserted before or after your acceptance of this Agreement and shall survive termination of this Agreement.


Neither you nor we will be entitled to:

  • Join, consolidate or combine Disputes by or against others in any arbitration with the exception of applicable arbitrator rules related to mass or multiple arbitration filings and our agreement below; or
  • Include in any arbitration any Disputes as a representative or member of a class.


16(B): Commencement of Disputes.


You and we agree to work together in an effort to resolve any Dispute between us. The party initiating a Dispute must send the other a written notice of the Dispute which is personally-signed (in the case of any digital signature, the digital signature shall comply with the requirements of the federal E-Sign Act) notice by Certified U.S. Mail. If we have a Dispute with you, we will send this notice to the most recent contact information we have for you. If you have a Dispute with us, you must send this notice to:


Brooklyn Bedding LLC

Attn: Legal Department

5301 W Bethany Home Road

Phoenix, AZ 85031


The written notice must include the disputing party’s name and residential address, phone number, the email address for your user account (as applicable), and a clear and detailed statement of the claim (including requested relief and the basis for relief). For a period of sixty (60) days from receipt of a completed notice (which can be extended by agreement of the parties), you and we agree to negotiate in good faith in an effort to resolve the Dispute. The party receiving the notice may request a telephone or video conference to aid in the resolution of the Dispute. If such a conference is requested, you and a company representative will personally attend the conference (with counsel, if represented). The conference will be scheduled for a mutually convenient time, which may be outside of the 60-day period. Completion of this mandatory dispute resolution process (“Process”) is a condition precedent to initiating a Dispute in arbitration. If the sufficiency of a notice or compliance with this Process is at issue, such issue may be raised with and decided by a court of competent jurisdiction at either party’s election, and any arbitration then underway shall be stayed. The court shall have the authority to enforce this condition precedent to arbitration, which includes the power to enjoin the filing or prosecution of arbitrations and the assessment or collection of arbitration fees. Nothing in this Section limits the right of a party to seek damages for non-compliance with this Process in arbitration. All applicable limitations periods (including statutes of limitations) will be tolled from the date of receipt of a completed notice through the conclusion of this Process.


16(C): Arbiter of Disputes.


Any arbitration of a Dispute will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator selected jointly by the parties, whose decision will be final, except for a limited right of appeal under the FAA. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted by the National Arbitration and Mediation (“NAM”) pursuant to its then current rules, including, as applicable, NAM’s Comprehensive Dispute Resolution Rules and NAM’s Mass Filing Supplemental Dispute Resolution Rules and Procedures (“NAM Rules”), as modified by this Agreement. All applicable NAM Rules and procedures are available at the NAM website at www.namadr.com. If the NAM is unavailable or unwilling to administer the arbitration consistent with this arbitration agreement, the parties shall agree on an administrator that will do so. If the parties cannot agree, they shall petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint an administrator that will do so. Payment of arbitration fees will be governed by the NAM Rules and fee schedule. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and reasonable costs, including costs for expert and other witnesses, to the prevailing party.


16(D): Mass Arbitration.


You and we also agree that, if twenty-five (25) or more Disputes arises against a party regarding the same or substantially similar issues filed by or with the assistance of the same law firm, group of law firms, or organizations, our respective Dispute(s) will be arbitrated in a coordinated fashion such that arbitrator shall: (1) administer the arbitration demands together; (2) appoint one arbitrator for the coordinated demands; and (3) issue one set of case management, hearing and administrative fees due per side, one procedural calendar, and one hearing (if any) in a place to be determined by the arbitrator. To the extent the parties disagree on the application of the provisions of this paragraph, the disagreeing party shall advise the arbitrator, and the arbitrator shall stay the arbitrations pending a determination of the applicability of this section and process by a court. In such a proceeding, the prevailing party may recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs in connection therewith.


16(E): Remedies.


Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, the arbitrator shall be authorized to award all remedies available in an individual lawsuit under applicable substantive law, including, without limitation, compensatory, statutory and punitive damages (which shall be governed by the constitutional standards applicable in judicial proceedings), declaratory, injunctive and other equitable relief, and attorneys’ fees and costs. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude the parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. If conducted in person, the arbitration shall take place in Maricopa County, Arizona; if that forum is not available, then the arbitration shall take place in the United States county where you reside, provided a court in that county would have personal jurisdiction over all parties in the dispute. The parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay a proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. As set forth in Section 18 below, nothing in this Agreement will prevent us from seeking injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction as necessary to protect our proprietary interests. Additionally, nothing herein shall limit your ability to seek public injunctive relief in arbitration or in a court of competent jurisdiction, as applicable.


16(F): Severance.


If any portion of this Section 16 is found to be void, unenforceable, or unlawful, in whole or in part, then the entire Section 16 shall be severed from this Agreement and any Dispute may only proceed in a court of law.



17.CLASS ACTION WAIVER


Except for mass arbitrations in accordance with Section 16(D) or under the arbitrator's mass filing rules, and unless otherwise agreed to by the parties, you and we agree that any proceeding or lawsuit, whether brought in arbitration or in a court of law, shall be limited to dispute(s) between us and you individually and not in a class, consolidated, or representative action. To the fullest extent permitted by law, (i) no arbitration or proceeding shall be joined with any other, except for coordinated arbitration of twenty-five (25) or more Disputes against a party regarding the same or substantially similar issues filed by or with the assistance of the same law firm, group of law firms, or organizations, as discussed in Section 16 above; (ii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated, litigated, or resolved on a class action-basis or to utilize class action procedures without the express agreement of the parties; and (iii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons without the express agreement of the parties. If this class action and jury trial waiver is found to be void, unenforceable, or unlawful, in whole or in part, the void, unenforceable, or unlawful provision, in whole or in part, shall be severed. Severance of the void, unenforceable, or unlawful provision, in whole or in part, shall have no impact on the remaining provisions of this Section, which shall remain in full force and effect.


18.EQUITABLE RELIEF


You acknowledge and agree that in the event of a breach or threatened violation of our intellectual property rights or confidential and proprietary information by you, we will suffer irreparable harm and will therefore be entitled to injunctive relief to enforce this Agreement. We may, without waiving any other remedies under this Agreement, seek from any court having jurisdiction any interim, equitable, provisional, or injunctive relief that is necessary to protect our rights and property pending the outcome of the arbitration referenced above. You hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to the personal and subject matter jurisdiction of the federal and state courts sitting in Maricopa County, Arizona for purposes of any such action by us.


19.CONTROLLING LAW; EXCLUSIVE FORUM


The Agreement and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the State of Arizona without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. The Parties hereby consent and agree that the exclusive jurisdiction for all suits, actions, or proceedings directly or indirectly arising out of or relating to the Websites, Services, Products, and this Agreement which are not otherwise arbitrable, shall be the federal court sitting in Maricopa County, Arizona. If the federal court in Maricopa County, Arizona is not available, then the exclusive jurisdiction for all suits, actions, or proceedings directly or indirectly arising out of or relating to the Websites, Services, Products, and this Agreement which are not otherwise arbitrable, shall be the state court in Maricopa County, Arizona. The Parties waive any and all objections to such courts, including but not limited to, objections based on personal jurisdiction, improper venue, or inconvenient forum, and each party hereby irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts in any suits, actions, or proceedings arising out of or relating to the Websites, Services, Products, and this Agreement.
