13. AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE; CLASS ACTION WAIVER
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND INCLUDES WAIVER OF A TRIAL BY JURY IN A COURT AND OF THE ABILITY TO BRING ANY CLAIM ON BEHALF OF OTHERS.
Overview This Section 13 (i.e., the “Agreement to Arbitrate”) applies to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. If the laws of your jurisdiction prohibit the application of provisions of this Section 13 notwithstanding Section 14 below, those prohibited provisions will not apply to you. IF YOU LIVE IN THE EUROPEAN UNION, NONE OF THIS SECTION 13 APPLIES TO YOU.
In the event of any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms, including any question regarding its existence, validity, termination or breach thereof, the parties hereto shall consult and negotiate with each other and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a satisfactory solution. Most user concerns can be resolved by contacting our customer support team at email@example.com. In the unlikely event that we are unable to resolve your concerns and a dispute remains, this Section explains how you and we agree to resolve it.
As explained in more detail below, we each agree to resolve any dispute between us through binding arbitration or small claims court instead of in courts of general jurisdiction.
Agreement to Arbitrate;
Exceptions If we cannot resolve our dispute through customer support, YOU AND WE AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES AND CLAIMS BETWEEN US IN INDIVIDUAL BINDING ARBITRATION, INCLUDING CLAIMS CONCERNING ANY ASPECT OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN US, YOUR DECISION TO DOWNLOAD OR ACCESS AN RRC SERVICE, YOUR USE OF AN RRC SERVICE, ANY USER CONTENT, OR YOUR ACCOUNT. This Agreement to Arbitrate is intended to be interpreted broadly, and applies to all legal claims under any legal theory (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory), and applies to any disputes or claims that you assert or that arise even after you stop using or delete your RRC Account for an RRC Service, stop using an RRC Service, or delete an RRC Service application from your mobile or other device. This Agreement to Arbitrate also applies to any claims that are currently the subject of a purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class. You and we agree that the arbitrator shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability or enforceability of the terms or formation of this contract, including whether any dispute between us is subject to this Agreement to Arbitrate (i.e., the arbitrator will decide the arbitrability of any dispute) and whether all or any part of these terms are void or voidable.
An arbitration is a proceeding before a neutral arbitrator, instead of before a judge or jury. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court, and provides more limited discovery. It follows different rules than court proceedings, and is subject to very limited review by courts. The arbitrator will issue a written decision and provide a statement of reasons if requested by either party. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU AND WE ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND THE RIGHT TO HAVE A TRIAL BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY.
This Section 13, however, does not apply to the following types of claims or disputes, which you or we may bring in court in accordance with Section 14 below:
(1) claims of infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights, including such claims seeking injunctive relief; and
Any arbitration under this section that is required to take place in person will take place pursuant to the Rules, which provide that face-to-face proceedings be conducted at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances.
If your claim is for US$25,000 or less, we agree to reimburse your filing fee promptly upon being notified of the filing, or pay it for you if you are unable to pay it and we receive a written request from you. Also, if your claim is for US$25,000 or less, we agree to reimburse your share of the arbitration costs, including your share of arbitrator compensation, at the conclusion of the proceeding, unless the arbitrator determines your claims are frivolous or your costs are unreasonable as determined by the arbitrator. If you seek more than US$25,000, the arbitration costs, including arbitrator compensation, will be split between you and us according to the Rules. Irrespective of the amount you seek, neither party shall be entitled to have their attorneys’ fees or costs paid by the other party, provided, however, that either party may seek to recover their attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration if the arbitrator determines that the other party's claims (or counterclaims) are frivolous or the other party's costs are unreasonable.
For EU Users
In the event of any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms, including any question regarding its existence, validity, termination or breach thereof, the parties hereto shall consult and negotiate with each other and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a satisfactory solution. If they do not reach settlement within a period of 60 days, then, upon notice by any party to the other(s), any unresolved controversy or claim shall be settled by arbitration administered by the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (“ICDR”) in accordance with the provisions of its International Arbitration Rules. The place of arbitration shall be in London, England. The number of arbitrators shall be one. The language to be used in the arbitral proceedings shall be English. Except as may be required by law, neither a party nor its representatives may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration hereunder without the prior written consent of RRC.
Class Action Waiver For disputes arising between RRC and you, or any other user, that are subject to this Agreement to Arbitrate, you and we agree that we can only bring a claim against each other on an individual basis. NEITHER YOU NOR WE CAN BRING A CLAIM AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN A CLASS ACTION, CONSOLIDATED ACTION, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. THE ARBITRATOR CANNOT COMBINE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIM INTO A SINGLE CASE, AND CANNOT PRESIDE OVER ANY CONSOLIDATED, CLASS, OR REPRESENTATIVE ARBITRATION PROCEEDING, UNLESS WE BOTH AGREE OTHERWISE IN WRITING. THE ARBITRATOR’S DECISION OR AWARD IN ONE PERSON’S CASE CAN ONLY AFFECT THE PERSON WHO BROUGHT THE CLAIM, NOT OTHER USERS OF RRC SERVICES, AND CANNOT BE USED TO DECIDE DISPUTES WITH OTHERS. If a court decides that this “Class Action Waiver” subsection is not enforceable or is invalid, then Section 13 shall cease to have effect, however, the remaining portions of the Terms and Conditions will remain in full force and effect.
Service of Process To initiate arbitration or any legal proceeding against RRC, you must serve initiating documents on RRC’s registered agent for service of process at: United States Corporation Agents, Inc. 9900 Spectrum Drive Austin, Texas 78717
Changes to this Section 13 Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, we agree that if we make any future change to this Section 13, you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
14. APPLICABLE LAW.
For Users other than EU Users
For claims not required to be arbitrated under Section 13, or in the event the arbitration provision in Section 13 is deemed unenforceable or voided, you agree that any claim asserted in any legal proceeding by you against us shall be commenced and maintained exclusively in any state or federal court located in San Diego County, California having subject matter jurisdiction with respect to the dispute between the parties and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts. In any dispute arising between us, the prevailing party will be entitled to attorneys’ fees and expenses.

On taking down content under the DMCA, we will take reasonable steps to contact the owner of the removed content, including by forwarding them a copy of the Notice and the name and email address of the person submitting the Notice, so that a Counter Notice may be filed. On receiving a valid Counter Notice, we generally restore the content in question, unless we receive notice from the notification provider that a legal action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in the infringing activity. Please note: The DMCA provides that you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you falsely claim that content is infringing your copyright. We recommend contacting an attorney if you are unsure whether your content is protected by copyright law or whether content is infringing on your copyright.

An identification of the copyright you claim has been infringed (i.e., your copyrighted material);
A description of the nature and exact location of the content you claim infringes your copyright;
Your name, address, telephone number, and email address;
Statements by you that: (a) you have a good faith belief that the use of the copyrighted materials described above and contained on the service is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or by protection of law; and that (b) you swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; and
A physical signature of the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on their behalf. To satisfy the signature requirement, please designate electronic signatures by typing a forward slash before and after your name (e.g., /Jane Doe/).
