Dispute Resolution and Arbitration; Class Action Waiver

Please read this carefully. It affects your rights.

Most user concerns can be resolved quickly and to a user’s satisfaction by contacting us at help@leetresumes.com. This Provision facilitates the prompt and efficient resolution of any disputes that may arise between you and Leet Resumes. 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 (or arbitrator) for a binding decision. You have the right to opt-out of this Provision (as explained below), which means you would retain your right to litigate your disputes in a court, either before a judge or jury.

Please read this Provision carefully. It provides that, except where prohibited by applicable law, all Disputes between you and Leet Resumes shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court. In the absence of this arbitration agreement, you may otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring claims in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate in or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including, but not limited to, class actions). 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. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow this agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney’s fees).

For the purpose of this Provision, “Leet Resumes” means Leet Resumes and its parents, subsidiary, and affiliate companies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents. The term “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Leet Resumes regarding, arising out of or relating to any aspect of your relationship with Leet Resumes, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence), or any other legal or equitable cause of action or claim for relief, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Provision (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). “Dispute” is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced, and shall include any claims against other parties relating to services or products provided or billed to you (such as Leet Resumes' licensors, suppliers, dealers or third party vendors) whenever you also assert claims against us in the same proceeding.

WE EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW OR WHERE PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, 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.

Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution

For all Disputes, whether pursued in court or arbitration, you must first give Leet Resumes an opportunity to resolve the Dispute. You must commence this process by emailing written notification to disputeresolution@leetresumes.com. That written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, (3) a written description of your Claim, and (4) a description of the specific relief you seek. If Leet Resumes does not resolve the Dispute within 45 days after it receives your written notification, you may pursue your Dispute in arbitration or, only where arbitration is prohibited by law, in court. You may pursue your Dispute in a court only under the circumstances described below.

Exclusions from Arbitration; Right to Opt Out

Notwithstanding the above, you or Leet Resumes may choose to pursue a Dispute in court and not by arbitration if (a) the Dispute qualifies, it may be initiated in small claims court; or (b) YOU OPT-OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT YOU FIRST CONSENT TO THIS AGREEMENT (the “Opt-Out Deadline”). You may opt out of this Provision by mailing written notification to Leet Resumes, disputeresolution@leetresumes.com. Your written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, and (3) a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with Leet Resumes through arbitration. Your decision to opt-out of this Arbitration Provision will have no adverse effect on your relationship with Leet Resumes. Any opt-out request received after the Opt-Out Deadline will not be valid and you must pursue your Dispute in arbitration or small claims court.

Arbitration Procedures

If this Provision applies and the Dispute is not resolved as provided above (Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution) either you or Leet Resumes may initiate arbitration proceedings. The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), www.adr.org, or JAMS, www.jamsadr.com, will arbitrate all Disputes, and the arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator. The arbitration shall be commenced as an individual arbitration only, and shall in no event be commenced as a class arbitration or a consolidated or representative action or arbitration. All issues shall be for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this Provision.
For arbitration before AAA, for Disputes of less than $75,000, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will apply; for Disputes involving $75,000 or more, the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. In either instance, the AAA’s Optional Rules For Emergency Measures Of Protection shall apply. The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. For arbitration before JAMS, the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures and the JAMS Recommended Arbitration Discovery Protocols For Domestic, Commercial Cases will apply. The JAMS rules are available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-5267. This Provision governs in the event it conflicts with the applicable arbitration rules. Under no circumstances will class action or representative action procedures or rules apply to the arbitration.

Because the Site and these Terms concern interstate commerce, the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the arbitrability of all Disputes. However, the arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and the applicable statute of limitations or condition precedent to suit.

Arbitration Award — 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 or if required by applicable law. Such award will be final and binding on the parties, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA or other applicable law, and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement.

Location of Arbitration — You or Leet Resumes may initiate arbitration in either New York County, New York or, if you reside in the United States, the federal judicial district that includes your billing address.

Payment of Arbitration Fees and Costs — Leet Resumes will pay all arbitration filing fees and AAA or JAMS hearing fees and any arbitrator’s hearing fees, costs and expenses upon your written request to the arbitrator given at or before the first evidentiary hearing in the arbitration. You are responsible for all additional fees and costs that you incur in the arbitration, including, but not limited to, attorneys or expert witnesses. Fees and costs may be awarded as provided pursuant to applicable law. In addition to any rights to recover fees and costs under applicable law, if you provide notice and negotiate in good faith with Leet Resumes as provided in the section above titled “Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution” and the arbitrator concludes that you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to recover reasonable attorney’s fees and costs as determined by the arbitrator.

Class Action Waiver

Except as otherwise provided in this Provision or by applicable law, 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, representative action, or private attorney general action) unless both you and Leet Resumes specifically agree to do so in writing following initiation of the arbitration. If you choose to pursue your Dispute in court by opting out of the Arbitration Provision, as specified above, this Class Action Waiver will not apply to you. Neither you, nor any other user of the Site can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, consolidated, or representative proceeding without having complied with the opt-out requirements above.

Severability

If any clause within this Provision (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Provision, and the remainder of this Provision will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, this entire Provision will be unenforceable and the Dispute will be decided by a court.

Continuation

This Provision shall survive the termination of your service with Leet Resumes or its affiliates. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Leet Resumes makes any change to this Provision (other than a change to the Notice Address), you may reject any such change and require Leet Resumes to adhere to the present language in this Provision if a dispute between us arises.

Termination

Leet Resumes may discontinue, suspend or terminate your access to the Site, the Services and/or your account, without notice or liability for any violation of these Terms or for any other use of the Site, the Services or the Materials that Leet Resumes, at its sole discretion, deems improper. Leet Resumes may also discontinue offering the Site, the Materials or any of the Services, or may modify any portion of the Site, the Materials or the Services at any time with or without notice to you. In the event of such termination.

Violations

Leet Resumes prefers to advise you if we feel you are not complying with these Terms and to recommend any necessary corrective action. However, certain violations of these Terms, as determined by Leet Resumes, may result in immediate termination of your access to the Site without prior notice to you.

Choice of Law and Venue

Subject to applicable consumer protection laws, the Federal Arbitration Act, New York state law and applicable U.S. federal law, without regard to choice of law or conflicts of law provisions, will govern these Terms. Foreign laws do not apply. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and any laws based on the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (UCITA) shall not apply to this Agreement. Except for Disputes subject to arbitration as described above, or where otherwise prohibited by law, any disputes relating to these Terms or the Site will be heard in the courts located in New York County in the State of New York.

Language

The Parties hereto have expressly required that this agreement and all documents and notices relating thereto be drafted in the English language. Les parties aux présentes ont expressément exigé que la présente convention et tous les autres documents ou avis qui y sont afférents soient rédigés en langue anglais.

General

With the exception of the “Severability” paragraph of the “Dispute Resolution and Arbitration; Class Action Waiver” agreement above, if any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms of Use, which shall remain in full force and effect. Leet Resumes’ failure to enforce any term of these Terms shall not be deemed a waiver of such term or otherwise affect Leet Resumes' ability to enforce such term at any point in the future. These Terms are the entire agreement between you and Leet Resumes and supersede all prior or contemporaneous negotiations, discussions or agreements between you and Leet Resumes about the Site. The proprietary rights, disclaimer of warranties, representations made by you, indemnities, limitations of liability and general provisions shall survive any termination of these Terms.
