Any dispute between you and Belle Up LLC and its agents, employees, officers, directors, principals, successors, assigns, subsidiaries or affiliates 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 these Terms to arbitration (collectively, "Covered Disputes") will be settled by binding arbitration in the State of Illinois administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) in accordance with its rules (including its rules and procedures for consumer-related disputes) in effect on the date thereof (“AAA Rules”). 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. Belle Up will provide such notice by email to the email address that you provided when you created your account and you must provide such notice to Belle Up by mail to: Belle Up LLC, attn: Legal Department, 1915 W. 103rd Street, Chicago, IL, 60643.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. If, however, you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive for you as compared to the costs of litigation, Belle Up LLC 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 Belle Up LLC for all fees associated with the arbitration that Belle Up paid on your behalf which you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA Rules. A single arbitrator will be selected in accordance with the AAA Rules. The arbitration shall be conducted in the English language. 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 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. 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. The arbitrator’s decision must be with written explanation and remain confidential. Belle Up LLC and you agree that any Covered Dispute will be submitted to arbitration on an individual basis only. 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 10, these Terms and related transactions will be subject to and governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA). Both you and Belle Up agree that this dispute resolution procedure is a condition precedent which must be satisfied prior to initiating any arbitration or filing any claim against the other party.
