(a) Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
Please read this carefully. It affects your legal rights and remedies.
WE EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PROVISION.
AS DISCUSSED BELOW, WE EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION. BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT AND CHOOSING NOT TO OPT OUT, YOU AND WE ARE EACH WAIVING OUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
Contact us first. If a dispute arises between you and Lasko, our goal is to learn about it and address your concerns. You agree that you will notify Lasko about any dispute you have with Lasko regarding these Terms or the Lasko App. Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to a customer’s satisfaction by contacting us on our website at www.lasko.com.
All disputes between you and Lasko that cannot be resolved between you and our customer service team shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Except as otherwise provided, entering into this Agreement constitutes a waiver of your right to litigate claims and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury. The arbitrator must follow this Agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including reasonable attorney’s fees).
If this provision applies and the dispute is not resolved as provided above, either you or Lasko may initiate arbitration proceedings. The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) will arbitrate all disputes, and the arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator. The arbitration shall be commenced as an individual arbitration, and not as a class arbitration. All issues shall be for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this provision. The arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available pursuant to applicable law and will not have the power to award relief to, against or for the benefit of any person who is not a party to the proceeding. The arbitrator will make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. Such award will be final and binding on the parties, except for any right of appeal provided by the Federal Arbitration Act and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement. You or Lasko may initiate arbitration in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and in no other venue, unless the parties agree in writing.
(b) Class Action Waiver
Except as otherwise provided in this provision, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, consolidated action, or private attorney general action, collectively, “Class Action Waiver”) unless both you and Lasko specifically agree to do so following initiation of the arbitration.
(c) Time Limit to Bring Claims
No suit or action may be brought against Lasko more than one year after the date of the incident that resulted in the loss, injury, or damage, or the shortest duration permitted under applicable law if greater than one year.
If you are a California resident, you shall and hereby do waive any rights you may have pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1542, which reads, in relevant part: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
The failure of Lasko to exercise, in any respect, any of its rights provided herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. Lasko shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond Lasko’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation (including “line-noise” interference). If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. This Agreement is not assignable, transferable or sub licensable by you except with our prior written consent. Lasko may transfer, assign, or delegate this Agreement and its rights and obligations without consent. Both parties agree that this Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, and that all modifications must be in a writing signed by both parties, except as otherwise provided herein. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of this Agreement, and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind Lasko in any respect whatsoever.
