Resolving disputes with AES Indiana - arbitration
Waiver. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT BY AGREEING TO BINDING ARBITRATION, YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT BY AGREEING TO BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, YOU MAY NOT BRING A CLAIM AGAINST AES INDIANA IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT, AND THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN ONE OR MORE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS IN A CLASS OR PROCEEDING.
In the event a court determines that the foregoing is unenforceable, then such claim must be severed from the arbitration and brought in court, subject to AES Indiana’s right to appeal.
Good Faith Discussions. You and AES Indiana must first attempt to resolve any dispute by good faith discussions or email. If the parties cannot resolve a dispute with good faith discussions, then either party may submit the dispute to binding arbitration as set forth in these Terms.
Rules. You and AES Indiana agree that arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules, then in effect and as amended herein (the “Rules”). The Rules can be found at: https://www.adr.org/Rules. You and AES Indiana agree that this agreement to arbitrate involves a transaction of interstate commerce and therefore the Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforceability of this agreement to arbitrate.
Initiating a Claim. The party desiring to initiate arbitration must provide the other party a Demand for Arbitration in accordance with the Rules and the parties will thereafter mutually agree upon the arbitrator. If the parties cannot agree upon the arbitrator within ten (10) days, an arbitrator will be appointed in accordance with the Rules.
Arbitrator. Arbitration shall be before one (1) arbitrator who shall have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes arising under these Terms or with regard to the Site, including as to the enforceability and/or formation of this agreement to arbitrate made between you and AES Indiana.
Location. You agree that arbitration shall take place exclusively in Marion County, Indiana. However, where the disclosed claims or counterclaims do not exceed $25,000, the dispute may be resolved by the submission of documents only/desk arbitration (see the Rules for more details). Either party may, however, ask for a hearing, or the arbitrator may decide a hearing is necessary.
Confidentiality. The arbitration and information disclosed during arbitration may not be disclosed to any third party except as required by law. The parties will not make any comments or announcements to the public about the subject matter or outcome of any arbitration.
Changes to this Agreement to Arbitrate. If AES Indiana modifies this arbitration provision, you may reject that change by sending AES Indiana written notice within thirty (30) days of our posting of the change, in which case we will terminate your Account.
The Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator’s decisions and judgment will be final and binding on the parties, but will have no precedential effect. The arbitrator shall not have the authority to award damages outside of those set forth in these Terms.
Costs and Expenses. Each party shall pay their own expenses and fees, including their own attorneys’ fees, arising from arbitration, unless the arbitrator determines that your claims were improper or frivolous, in which case the arbitrator may require you to reimburse us for certain fees and expenses in accordance with the Rules.
Exceptions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section, you and AES Indiana each retain the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s intellectual property rights.
We respect the intellectual property rights of others and we ask that you do the same. In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), located at 17 U.S.C. § 512, and other applicable laws, we strive to expeditiously remove any infringing material from the Site upon learning of the situation. It is our policy to terminate repeat infringers’ use of the Site. If you believe that anything on the Site infringes any copyright that you own or control, please provide our designated agent with a notice that contains the following information:
- A description of the copyrighted work(s) that you claim have been infringed;
- A description of the allegedly infringing material with enough detail so that we may locate it on the Site, such as a screenshot of the allegedly infringing material;
- Information sufficient to permit us to notify the alleged infringer;
- A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
- A statement by you that: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed”;
- Your email address, telephone number, and mailing address;
- An electronic or physical signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner; and
- You must send your notice to our DMCA Agent at the following address:
