DISPUTE RESOLUTION – ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

Visitor may opt-out of this Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver (“Arbitration Agreement”) by emailing CoxNext at [email protected] the following information: (1) Visitor’s name; (2) Visitor’s address; and (3) a clear statement that Visitor does not wish to resolve disputes with CoxNext through arbitration. Visitor’s decision to opt-out of this arbitration provision will have no adverse effect on his or her relationship with CoxNext, but CoxNext must receive this opt-out request within 30 days from the date that Visitor’s first consent to these Terms. Any opt-out request received after this deadline will not be valid and Visitor must pursue his or her dispute in arbitration or small claims court.

UNLESS VISITOR OPTS-OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES AS SET FORTH ABOVE AND EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE DESCRIBED HEREIN:

VISITOR AND COXNEXT EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED BELOW, 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 ARBITRATION AGREEMENT

Arbitration

Visitor and CoxNext agree to arbitrate – rather than litigate in court – any and all claims or Disputes that may arise between Visitor and CoxNext, including any of CoxNext’s parent companies or organizations, subsidiaries, affiliates, and each of their managers, owners, officers, directors, employees, or agents. The term “Dispute” means any claim or dispute that may arise out of or in any way relates to Visitor’s relationship with CoxNext, including without limitation regarding these Terms, or the Service or products or services that CoxNext, its affiliates and/or service providers may provide to Visitor on CoxNext’s behalf in connection with Visitor’s use of the Service, including, without limitation, any Dispute based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, negligence, gross negligence or reckless behavior), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Arbitration Agreement (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. However, in no event shall this Arbitration Agreement prevent Visitor, in his or her individual capacity, from filing or joining a complaint with any federal, state, or local government agency that is authorized by law to seek relief against CoxNext. The arbitration between Visitor and CoxNext will be binding, and judgment on the award rendered in the arbitration may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

Arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution in which parties to a contract agree to submit their Disputes and potential Disputes to a neutral third person (called an arbitrator) for a binding decision, instead of having such Dispute(s) decided in a lawsuit, in court, by a judge or jury trial. This Arbitration Agreement provides that all Disputes between Visitor and CoxNext shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court. In the absence of this Arbitration Agreement, Visitor might 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). Entering into this Arbitration Agreement constitutes a waiver of Visitor’s right to litigate claims in court 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 very limited. The arbitrator’s authority is governed by these Terms. Visitor and CoxNext agree that an arbitrator must follow and be governed by this Arbitration Agreement and may only award such relief as a court of competent jurisdiction could award, limited to the same extent as a court would limit relief pursuant to these Terms. An arbitrator may award attorneys’ fees and costs if a court would be authorized to do so and may issue injunctive or declaratory relief if that relief is required or authorized by the applicable law, but that injunctive or declaratory relief may not extend beyond Visitor and Visitor’s dealings with CoxNext and may not include class or collective action relief. Discovery may be limited in arbitration, and procedures are more streamlined than in court.

Notwithstanding this Arbitration Agreement, Visitor and CoxNext may bring appropriate claims against each other regarding Disputes in small claims court, if the claims fall within the small claims court’s jurisdiction, or, on an individual and not class or collective action basis, before any other federal, state, or local government agency authorized by law to hear Visitor’s claims.

Informal Dispute Resolution

Visitor and CoxNext agree to try to resolve Disputes informally before resorting to arbitration. If the Dispute cannot be resolved by telephone, Visitor agrees to notify CoxNext of the Dispute by sending a written description of Visitor’s claim to Cox Enterprises Legal Department, Attention: Dorcas Morris, 6205 Peachtree Dunwoody Road, Atlanta, GA 30328, so that CoxNext can attempt to resolve it with Visitor. If CoxNext does not satisfactorily resolve Visitor’s Dispute within 30 calendar days of receiving notice of it, then Visitor may pursue the Dispute in arbitration. Neither Visitor nor CoxNext may initiate arbitration without first providing notice to the other of the Dispute and following the informal Dispute resolution procedure provided in this paragraph.

INDEMNIFICATION

Visitor agrees to indemnify and hold CoxNext and its affiliates, service providers, and licensors, and all of their respective officers, directors, employees and agents, harmless from and against any and all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, that arise out of Visitor’s use of the Service, violation of these Terms by Visitor, or Visitor’s violation of any rights of another. CoxNext reserves the right to control the defense of any action for which it is entitled to indemnification hereunder. In such event, Visitor agrees to cooperate with CoxNext, at CoxNext’s expense, as it may reasonably request in connection with its defense of the applicable claim.

MISCELLANEOUS

Governing Law. By utilizing this website, Visitor agrees that these Terms shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia without regard to its conflicts of laws principles.

No Waiver. Any waiver by CoxNext of a breach of any provision of these Terms shall not operate as or be constructed to be a waiver of any other breach of that provision or of any breach of any other provision of these Terms. If any one or more of the provisions contained in these Terms shall be held to be illegal, invalid, unenforceable or void in any respect by any arbitration proceeding or court of competent jurisdiction, these Terms and any other provision herein shall not be rendered null and void and shall not be affected or impaired.
