MANDATORY BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION INSTEAD OF COURT; CLASS ACTION WAIVER

You and North 40 Outfitters both agree that any and all disputes or claims arising out of or relating in any way to our Sites, our products or services, or any advertising therefor, including without limitation any question regarding the existence, validity, or termination of these Terms as well as any issue regarding the interpretation of this Section, will be resolved by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator (rather than in court), except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify, and we may pursue any collection action against you in a court of competent jurisdiction. The foregoing limitation also includes any claims that arose before you accepted these Terms, irrespective of any dispute resolution provisions contained in any prior versions of these Terms. The Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq.) and federal arbitration law apply to this arbitration agreement.


B. Neutral Arbitrator. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including without limitation injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) and must follow the terms of these Terms as a court would. Arbitration procedures allow for more limited discovery, and court review of an arbitration award is limited.


C. Notice. If you have a dispute and elect to seek arbitration or file a claim in small claims court, you must first send to North 40 Outfitters, by certified mail, a written notice of your claim that (i) describes the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; (ii) sets forth the specific relief sought; and (iii) includes a physical address and email address where you may be reached (“Notice”). The Notice must be addressed to: [NOTICE CONTACT INFORMATION] (“Notice Address”). If North 40 Outfitters and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within sixty (60) days after the Notice is received, you may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court.


D. Initiation of Arbitration. You may download or copy a form to initiate arbitration at www.adr.org.


E. Consumer Arbitration Rules. The arbitration will be governed by the AAA’s then current Consumer Arbitration Rules, as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. In the event of any conflict between these Terms and the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules, these Terms will apply.


F. Fees. Each party will bear its own fees in connection with any arbitration, including without limitation the expense of its own counsel, experts, witnesses, and preparation and presentation of evidence at any arbitration hearing.


G. Hearings. If your claim is for US$25,000 or less, you and North 40 Outfitters agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents or through a telephonic hearing. You may also request an in-person hearing, which the arbitrator may grant at his or her discretion. If the arbitrator grants an in-person hearing, such hearing will be conducted either at a mutually agreed location or a location determined by the AAA or the arbitrator. In such an in-person hearing, the parties, or any of their witnesses, have the right to participate remotely by way of videoconference or similar means. If your claim exceeds US$25,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the arbitrator. All in-person hearings will be held in Great Falls, Montana.


H. No Class Action. You and North 40 Outfitters agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, representative, consolidated, or mass action. Neither you nor North 40 Outfitters may join or consolidate claims by or against a third party or arbitrate or otherwise participate in any claim as a class representative, class member or in a private attorney general capacity. If this provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section shall be null and void.


I. Confidentiality. Any arbitration will be confidential. Neither you, North 40 Outfitters, the AAA, nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence, content (including any oral or written submissions), or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by applicable law or for purposes of enforcing or challenging of the arbitration award.


J. Opt-Out. You may opt out of this dispute resolution procedure by providing written notice to North 40 Outfitters at the Notice Address no later than thirty (30) calendar days from the date of your purchase of North 40 Outfitters products or services (or date of Site-related activity, if the activity is not a purchase).
