Choice of Law/No Waiver/Severability: This Agreement shall be treated as though it were executed and performed in Indiana, Pennsylvania, and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Pennsylvania (without regard to conflict of law principles). To the extent that anything in or associated with the websites, the Service and/or your Account is in conflict or inconsistent with this Agreement, this Agreement shall take precedence. Our failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver of such provision nor of the right to enforce such provision. The parties do not intend that any agency or partnership relationship be created through operation of this Agreement.
This Arbitration Provision ("Provision" or "Arbitration Provision") facilitates the prompt and efficient resolution of any disputes that may arise between you and Reliant Holdings, Inc., a Pennsylvania Corporation d/b/a Horizon Card Services and/or d/b/a Merit Card Services and/or operating under any other trade name or d/b/a of Reliant Holdings, Inc. (hereinafter "us", "our", "Horizon" or "we" as appropriate). Arbitration is a form of private dispute-resolution in which persons with a dispute waive their rights to file a lawsuit, to proceed in court and to a jury trial, and instead submit their disputes to a neutral third person (an arbitrator) for a binding decision. You have the right to opt out of this Arbitration Provision if you follow the instructions set out in the paragraph titled "Right to Opt Out" below.
Parties and Matters Subject to Arbitration: For purposes of this Provision, "we" and "us" include our employees, parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, beneficiaries, agents and assigns and other persons and entities you assert a Claim against in connection with a Claim you assert against us. "Claim" shall refer to claims of every kind and nature, including, but not limited to, initial claims, counterclaims, cross- claims and third-party claims. All Claims are subject to arbitration, regardless of legal theory and remedy sought, including, but not limited to, claims based in contract, tort (including negligence, intentional tort, fraud and fraud in the inducement), agency, statutory law (federal and state), administrative regulations or any other source of law (including equity). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the word "Claim" does not include any dispute or controversy about the validity, enforceability, coverage or scope of this Arbitration Provision or any part thereof; all such disputes or controversies are for a court and not an arbitrator to decide. However, any dispute or controversy that concerns the validity or enforceability of the Credit Card Contract as a whole is for the arbitrator, not a court, to decide.
Agreement to Arbitrate: Any Claim shall be resolved and settled exclusively and finally by binding arbitration, in accordance with this Provision. Binding arbitration shall not be required, however, for collection actions we bring in court if you default on your Credit Account as set forth in the Credit Card Contract. Furthermore, both you and we retain the right to pursue in a small claims court (or your state's equivalent court) any Claim that is within that court's jurisdiction, so long as the matter remains in such small claims court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. For any Claims covered by this Provision, a party who asserted a Claim in a lawsuit in small claims court may elect arbitration with respect to any Claim subsequently asserted in that or any related or unrelated lawsuit by any other party.
Class Action Waiver: If a Claim is arbitrated, neither you nor we will have the right: (a) to participate in a class action, private attorney general action or other representative action in court or in arbitration, either as a class representative or class member; or (b) to join or consolidate Claims with Claims of any other persons. An award in arbitration shall determine the rights and obligations of the named parties only, and only with respect to the Claim(s) in arbitration, and shall not (i) determine the rights, obligations, or interests of anyone other than a named party, or resolve any Claim of anyone other than a named party; nor (ii) make an award for the benefit of, or against, anyone other than a named party. No arbitration administrator or arbitrator shall have the power or authority to waive, modify, or fail to enforce this section, and any attempt to do so, whether by rule, policy, arbitration decision or otherwise, shall be invalid and unenforceable. Any challenge to the validity of this Class Action Waiver shall be determined exclusively by a court and not by the administrator or any arbitrator. Thus, you agree that UNDER THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY CLAIMS TO BE LITIGATED IN COURT OR ARBITRATED ON A CLASS BASIS. Arbitration will only be conducted on an individual Claim basis and there is no right or authority to consolidate or join any of your Claims with any other Claims. YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE VOLUNTARILY AND KNOWINGLY WAIVING ANY RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR MEMBER OF ANY CLASS OF CLAIMANTS PERTAINING TO ANY CLAIM SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION UNDER THIS PROVISION.
Voluntary Waiver of the Right to a Jury Trial: As a result of this Provision, neither you nor we have the right to litigate any Claim in court or the right to a jury trial on any Claim, except as provided above. YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE VOLUNTARILY AND KNOWINGLY WAIVING ANY RIGHT YOU MAY HAVE TO GO TO COURT OR TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL.
Governing Law: This agreement to arbitrate is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, as it may be amended. If for any reason the Federal Arbitration Act does not apply, the substantive law of the State of Pennsylvania shall govern this Provision.
Arbitration Location and Procedure: Any arbitration hearing at which you wish to appear will take place at a location within the federal judicial district that includes the physical address where you reside at the time the Claim is filed. The party bringing the Claim may file its Claim at the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), or an arbitration organization mutually agreed upon by the parties. The arbitration organization that is selected will administer the arbitration pursuant to its procedures in effect at the time of filing, subject to this Provision. If you do not agree to file your claim with AAA, and the parties cannot agree on an alternative arbitration organization, an arbitrator will be appointed by a court pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. In the event of a conflict or inconsistency between the respective organization's rules and this Provision or the Credit Card Contract, this Provision shall govern. The arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator, whose authority is limited solely to individual Claims between you and us. The arbitration will not be consolidated with any other arbitration proceeding. Any decision rendered in such arbitration proceeding will be final and binding on the parties, except for any appeal rights under the FAA, and judgment may be entered in a court of competent jurisdiction. The rules and forms of AAA may be obtained as follows: American Arbitration Association, 120 Broadway, Floor 21, New York, N.Y. 10271, website at www.adr.org.
Arbitrator's Authority: The arbitrator shall apply the applicable substantive law, consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act; shall apply statutes of limitation; and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law. In conducting the arbitration proceeding, the arbitrator shall not apply any federal or state rules of civil procedure or evidence. THE RULES AND PROCEDURES OF THE AAA OR OTHER ARBITRATION ORGANIZATION WILL GOVERN THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN PRE-ARBITRATION DISCOVERY. Either party may, however, request to expand the scope of discovery. If a request is made, within 15 days of the requesting party's notice, the objecting party may submit objections to the arbitrator with a copy of the objections provided to the party requesting expansion. The grant or denial of a party's request will be in the sole discretion of the arbitrator, who shall notify the parties of the final decision within 20 days of the objecting party's submission.
The Arbitrator's Award: The arbitrator may award any damages or other relief or remedies that would apply under applicable law to an individual action brought in court, including, without limitation, punitive damages (which shall be governed by the Constitutional standards employed by the courts), attorneys' fees and costs and injunctive, equitable and declaratory relief (but only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim). At the timely request of either party, the arbitrator shall write a brief explanation of the grounds for the decision. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. No arbitration award between you and us will have any impact on any dispute involving anyone who is not a party to the arbitration, nor will an arbitration award between us and any other person have any impact to an arbitration between you and us.
Expenses: We will pay all expenses of arbitration, including the filing, administrative, hearing and arbitrator's fees ("Arbitration Fees"), to the extent that the Arbitration Fees exceed the amounts you would be required to pay for filing a lawsuit in state or federal court, whichever is less. If you have already paid a court filing fee, you will not be required to pay it again. Throughout the arbitration, each party shall bear his or her own attorney fees and expenses, such as witness and expert witness fees. If you prevail in the arbitration of any Claim against us, we will reimburse you for any fees you paid to the arbitration organization in connection with the arbitration. The arbitrator will have the authority to award fees and costs of attorneys, witnesses and experts to the extent permitted by the administrator's rules or applicable law. With respect to Claim(s) asserted by you in an individual arbitration, we will pay your reasonable attorney, witness and expert fees and costs if and to the extent you prevail, if applicable law requires us to or if we must bear such fees and costs in order for this Arbitration Provision to be enforced.
Survival of this Provision:
This arbitration provision shall survive:
