The Reserve will be in an amount determined by us in our sole discretion to cover actual or potential Losses we may incur and current, past and future obligations you may owe us. The Reserve may be raised, reduced or removed at any time by us, in our sole discretion. If you do not have sufficient funds in your Reserve, we may fund the Reserve from any payment method we have on file for you. You grant us a security interest in and lien on any and all funds held in the Reserve, and also authorize us to make any withdrawals or debits from the Reserve, and charge any payment method we have on file for you, to cover any Losses, obligations and amounts you owe us. You will execute any documents required by us to perfect our security interest in any funds in the Reserve or requested by us in connection with the Reserve.

9. Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.

If you are a resident of the EEA, please see the EU Residents – Supplemental Terms of Use for more information.  

All other users, please read this section carefully. It affects your rights. You agree that by entering into these Terms, you and we are each waiving any right to trial by jury or to participate in a class action. You agree that, by entering into this Terms of Service, you and Company are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.

Governing Law. All claims, disputes, or other legal proceedings by or between you or us, including but not limited to any such claims or disputes that are in any way related to or arising under these Terms or your access to or use of the Platform, shall be governed by the laws of the United States of America and the State of Delaware without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles that may otherwise provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction. 

Application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act (UCITA) are expressly excluded by these Terms. The parties agree that their arrangement under these Terms is in interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act applies to the construction of this Section “Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration” is referred to in this Terms of Service as the “Arbitration Agreement” or the “Agreement to Binding Arbitration” shall be interchangeable.  For any claim, dispute, or other legal proceeding not subject to the “Agreement to Binding Arbitration” provision below, the claim or dispute shall be brought and litigated exclusively in the state courts located within Kent County, Delaware or the federal courts in the District of Delaware, as appropriate, and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of each of these courts for the purpose of litigating such claims or disputes.   

Informal Negotiations. To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy, or claim related to these Terms (each a “Dispute” and collectively, the “Disputes”) brought by either you or us (individually, a “Party” and collectively, the “Parties”), the Parties agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating arbitration. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one Party to the other Party.  You may provide notice to us using the information provided in the “CONTACT US” section below.

Agreement to Binding Arbitration. Subject to the Exceptions to Arbitration set forth below, you and we each agree that any and all disputes between Platform users arising under or related in any way to these Terms and such users’ use of the Platform must be resolved through binding arbitration as described in this section. With the exception of the prohibition on class arbitrations set forth in this “DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION” section, if an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this agreement to arbitrate is unenforceable, the other parts of this Agreement to Arbitrate will still apply.

Exceptions to Arbitration: This Agreement to Arbitrate will not apply to the following: (a) small claims court cases; (b) legal proceedings that involve efforts to obtain user identifying information; (c) any legal proceedings brought against the Company by companies or other legal entities or individuals acting on behalf of such companies or other legal entities; (d) any legal proceedings brought by the Company against companies or other legal entities or individuals acting on behalf of any such companies or other legal entities; (e) a party’s right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights; (f) where the application of this provision is prohibited by applicable law; or (g) where your claim is under the Data Privacy Framework, subject to your election for binding arbitration under the Data Privacy Framework, as detailed in the Privacy Notice. If, for some reason, the prohibition on class arbitrations set forth in this DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION section cannot be enforced, then the entirety of this Agreement to Arbitrate will not apply. Where this Agreement to Arbitrate does not apply, the remainder of this Agreement and the Dispute Resolution section will continue to apply.

Arbitration Procedure: The arbitration will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this section, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA’s rules and a form for initiating the proceeding are available at www.adr.org. Any settlement offer made by you or us shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator. Unless otherwise required by the applicable arbitration rules at the time the arbitration is commenced, the arbitration shall be held in Tulsa, Oklahoma. For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is $20,000 or less, you and we may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or telephonic means such as Zoom or a similar technology or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and us subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing. In cases where an in-person hearing is held, you or we may attend by telephone or Zoom or a similar technology, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise. The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable law, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same Platform user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (collectively, the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. For information on the AAA, please visit its website, http://www.adr.org. Information about the AAA Rules and fees for consumer disputes can be found at the AAA’s consumer arbitration page, http://www.adr.org/consumer_arbitration. 

If there is any inconsistency between any term of the AAA Rules and any term of this Arbitration Agreement, the applicable terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of these Terms of Service as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement. Although arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings, the arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual under the Terms of Service and applicable law. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.

Limitation to Assert a Claim.  In no event shall any Dispute be commenced more than six (6) months after the facts giving rise to the claim occurred. 

Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief: YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND COMPANY AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S), EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY PURSUE A CLAIM FOR AND THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF UNDER APPLICABLE LAW TO THE EXTENT REQUIRED FOR THE ENFORCEABILITY OF THIS PROVISION.

Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution: Company is always interested in resolving disputes amicably and efficiently, and most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by emailing customer support at support@writesea.com. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, a party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to Company should be sent to 100 S Cincinnati Ave Suite 533 Tulsa OK 74103 (“Notice Address”). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If Company and you do not resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or Company may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Company or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Company is entitled.

Costs of Arbitration: Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the “Arbitration Fees”) will be governed by the AAA Rules, unless otherwise provided in this Arbitration Agreement. If the value of the relief sought is $75,000 or less, you will pay all Arbitration Fees. Any payment of attorneys’ fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.

Confidentiality: All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.

Severability: If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of this arbitration provision (other than the subsection above titled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief”) is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any of the provisions of the subsection above titled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” are invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void, unless such provisions are deemed to be invalid or unenforceable solely with respect to claims for public injunctive relief. The remainder of the Terms of Service will continue to apply.

Future Changes: Notwithstanding any provision in this Terms of Service to the contrary, Company agrees that if it makes any future change to this Arbitration Agreement (other than a change to the Notice Address) while you are a user of the Services, you may reject any such change by sending Company written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change to the Notice Address provided above.
