RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES – MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

We offer the following process to help you resolve a complaint or Dispute (as defined below) that you may have with Mountaintop or its third party providers in connection with the use of this Service. Please read this section carefully. Our Customer Service Department, which you can reach at contact@mountaintop.gg can help you resolve most of your concerns. If our Customer Service Department is unable to resolve your complaint or Dispute, you agree to take the following steps to resolve any Dispute you may have with us.

Step 1. Notice of Dispute

You must first try to resolve any complaint or Dispute with us through our Notice of Dispute process. You begin by submitting a “Notice of Dispute” with any supporting documents or other information by U.S. Mail to:


Mountaintop Studios, Inc.
Attention: Notice of Dispute
PO Box 318067
San Francisco, CA 94131


A “Notice of Dispute” is a written form in which you provide your name, address, contact information, email address, the facts regarding your Dispute, and the relief you are requesting from us. Once we receive your Notice of Dispute, you and we will attempt to resolve any Dispute through informal negotiation within forty-five (45) days from the date the Notice of Dispute is received by us. If an agreement cannot be reached within forty-five (45) days of receipt of the Notice of Dispute, you or we may initiate an arbitration proceeding or small claims action as described below.

You agree that the term “Dispute” in these Terms of Use will have the broadest meaning possible. It applies to any dispute, action, or other controversy between you and us relating to theWebsite, the services, or the Terms (or any breach thereof) – whether in contract, warranty, tort, laws or regulation. The term “Dispute” also applies to any dispute over the validity, enforceability, or scope of this arbitration provision.

Step 2: Arbitration

If your Dispute is not resolved to your satisfaction within 45 days from when we received your Notice of Dispute, you and we agree to arbitrate all Disputes between us. As explained below, you and we also may also have the right to bring an individual action before a Small Claims Court for certain claims. You agree that arbitration or a small claims action will be your sole and exclusive remedy to resolve any dispute with us. The Federal Arbitration Act applies to this Agreement.

By agreeing to arbitrate, you are giving up the right to litigate (or participate in as a party or class member) any and all Disputes in a court before a judge or jury (except Small Claims Court). Instead, a neutral arbitrator will resolve all Disputes.

To read more about arbitration, visit www.adr.org. The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) will conduct any arbitration under its Consumer Arbitration Rules in effect at that time.You can review the Consumer Arbitration Rules here: https://www.adr.org/sites/default/files/Consumer%20Rules.pdf. You may begin an arbitration with us by completing a Demand for Arbitration form, available by clicking here: https://www.adr.org/sites/default/files/Commercial%20Demand%20for%20Arbitration.pdf. The completed form(s) should be returned directly to the AAA. The AAA will assign someone to manage your case. You will be contacted with instructions for continuing the arbitration process. Be sure to keep a copy of everything you send to the administrator of your arbitration or us. If, for any reason, the AAA is unavailable, the parties shall mutually select another arbitration forum which will be governed by the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules. The AAA rules will determine whether the arbitration will take place through written submissions by you and us, by telephone, or in person.

Class Action Waiver

Any proceedings to resolve or litigate any Dispute in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, consolidation of your Dispute with other arbitrations, or any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity or as a private attorney general are not permitted and are waived by you, and an arbitrator will have no jurisdiction to hear such claims. If a court or arbitrator finds that the class action waiver in this section is unenforceable as to all or some parts of a Dispute, then the class action waiver will not apply to those parts. Instead, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in arbitration. If any other provision of this Dispute resolution section is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be severed with the remainder of this section remaining in full force and effect.

Costs

If you initiate an arbitration proceeding with the AAA, we will promptly reimburse you for any standard filing fee you may have been required to pay by the AAA, once you have notified us in writing and provided a copy of the arbitration demand. However, if we are the prevailing party inthe arbitration, we will be entitled to seek and recover our attorneys’ fees and costs, subject to the arbitrator’s determination and applicable law.

Small Claims Option

You may also litigate any Dispute in Small Claims Court in the County of Los Angeles, California, if the Dispute meets all requirements to be heard in the small claims court. You can learn more about the Small Claims Court in the County of Los Angeles by clicking here: http://www.lacourt.org/division/smallclaims/smallclaims.aspx. However, if you initiate a Small Claims case, you are responsible for all your court costs.

Choice of Law and Forum Selection

You agree that the laws of the State of California govern this agreement and any claim or Dispute or issues arising from it, without regard to California’s conflict of laws rules. Unless youand we agree otherwise, in the event that the Agreement to arbitrate above is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or Dispute as a result of a decision by the arbitrator or a court order, you agree that any Disputes or claims that you may have against us reside in and will be resolved by a state or federal court located in the County of Los Angeles in the State of California and you agree and submit to the exercise of personal jurisdiction of such courts for thepurpose of litigating any such claim or action.
