Upon acceptance of these terms, you forfeit your constitutional and statutory rights to pursue legal action in court and undergo a trial before a judge or jury for any disputes arising from these terms, except for those suitable for resolution in small claims court. Instead, your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, rather than a judge or jury. While you are assured of a fair hearing, arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited compared to court proceedings. Arbitrator decisions are as enforceable as court orders and undergo minimal review by a court.
    2. Claims brought by either party must be presented in their individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or member of a class in any purported class or representative proceeding. The arbitrator is prohibited from consolidating multiple claims, overseeing any form of a representative or class proceeding, or providing relief on a class-wide basis.
    3. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Section 9.6.1 (for purposes of this Section only, the “Arbitration Agreement”) requiring and governing arbitration by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following addresses: via email to info@visuEats.com within thirty (30) days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your account username (if any), the email address you used to set up your account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of these Terms will continue to apply to you.
    4. Each party will bear their own costs associated with the arbitration proceedings. The arbitration ruling will be final and binding on both parties, and there will be no chance for appeal or review except as permitted by the laws of the State of Florida or United States federal law. 
    5. Despite the aforementioned, (1) either party maintains the right to initiate an individual action in small claims court, and (2) claims pertaining to (A) defamation, (B) violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, or (C) infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s intellectual property rights, may be exclusively brought before the state or federal courts situated in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Both parties consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of these courts for such matters. The pursuit of equitable relief will not be construed as a waiver of the right to arbitration.
  2. Enforceability: Except for Section 9.6.1.a, if any part of Section 9.6.1 is deemed to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason then the balance of Section 9.6.1 will remain in effect. If, however, Section 9.6.1.a is found to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, or we receive a valid opt-out notice from you pursuant to Section 9.6.1.c, then Section 9.6.1 will be null and void, neither party will be entitled to arbitration, and any claims relating to the Terms or Services will be exclusively brought in a state or federal court located in Miami-Dade County, Florida.
  3. Governing Law: For all intents and purposes, these Terms will be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida, without applying its conflicts of laws provisions that would mandate a different outcome.
