In the event of any conflict between these Terms of Use and information provided by Customer Support or other portions of our website, these Terms of Use will control.
  14. Arbitration Agreement
    1. If you are a Bulc Club member in the United States (including its possessions and territories), you and Bulc Club agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to the Bulc Club service, these Terms of Use and this Arbitration Agreement, shall be determined by binding arbitration or in small claims court. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You agree that, by agreeing to these Terms of Use, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and Bulc Club are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement and the termination of your Bulc Club membership.
    2. If you elect to seek arbitration or file a small claim court action, you must first send to Bulc Club, by certified mail, a written Notice of your claim ("Notice"). The Notice to Bulc Club must be addressed to: General Counsel, ERA404 Creative Group, Inc., PO Box 470404, Brooklyn, NY 11247 ("Notice Address"). If Bulc Club initiates arbitration, it will send a written Notice to the email address used for your membership account. A Notice, whether sent by you or by Bulc Club, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If Bulc Club and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Bulc Club may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court.
    3. You may download or copy a form Notice and a form to initiate arbitration at www.adr.org. If you are required to pay a filing fee, after Bulc Club receives notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, Bulc Club will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than US$5,000, in which event you will be responsible for filing fees.
    4. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement. Unless Bulc Club and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your residence.
    5. If your claim is for US$5,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds US$5,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. If the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of Bulc Club's last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected (or if Bulc Club did not make a settlement offer before an arbitrator was selected), then Bulc Club will pay you the amount of the award or US$1,000, whichever is greater. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
    6. YOU AND BULC CLUB AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Bulc Club agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.
