10. Dispute Resolution

  • Applicable Law
  • Your use of the Services is subject to all applicable local, state, national and international laws and regulations.

  • Agreement to Arbitrate & Waiver of Representative Actions
  • PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPH CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH ALPHASHOOTERS AND IT LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF. IF YOU DO NOT CONSENT TO THE TERMS OF THIS SECTION 10, YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO USE THE SERVICES.

    You and AlphaShooters agree to arbitrate any dispute arising from these Terms of Use or relating to the Services, Site or AlphaShooters Materials. ARBITRATION PREVENTS YOU FROM SUING IN COURT OR FROM HAVING A JURY TRIAL. You and AlphaShooters agree: (i) to notify each other of any dispute within thirty (30) days of when it arises; (ii) to attempt informal resolution prior to any demand for arbitration; (iii) that any arbitration will occur in the Unnited Kingdom; and (iv) that arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the Rules of the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA). The AAA’s rules are available at https://www.lcia.org/. Other than class procedures and remedies described in these Terms of Use, the arbitrator has the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you and AlphaShooters are NOT required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable or other relief for (1) the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents or (2) allegedly criminal conduct under laws of the United Kingdom or any country thereof including, but not limited to, criminal laws addressing pornography, exploitation, obscenity, or hate speech.

    The arbitrator will not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different AlphaShooters users but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same AlphaShooters user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator’s award will be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. YOU AND ALPHASHOOTERS AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS PART OF ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND ALPHASHOOTERS 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). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER ALPHASHOOTERS USERS.

    Unless you and AlphaShooters agree otherwise, in the event that a court decides that any part of this Section 10 is invalid or unenforceable, you agree that any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and AlphaShooters must be resolved exclusively by a court located in England, United Kingdom. The remainder of the Terms of Use will continue to apply. You and AlphaShooters agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within England, United Kingdom for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.

ADDITIONAL TERMS APPLICABLE TO ALPHASHOOTERS PRO MEMBER ACCOUNTS
