Dispute Resolution

This Agreement and any issue or dispute that arises out of or otherwise relates to this Agreement or with your use of the Website, the Privacy Policy, or any matter including AAEE including the purchase of any products or services on this Website (collectively “Disputes”) shall be governed exclusively by the laws of the United States and by the laws of the State of Arizona, excluding its conflict of law provisions. If a Dispute arises under this Agreement, we agree to first contact each other with a written description of the Dispute, all relevant documents and information, and the proposed resolution. You agree to send AAEE a written notice of such dispute to: Arizona Association for Environmental Education, P.O. Box 7661, Goodyear, AZ 85338. AAEE will contact you by letter to the billing address you provided us at the time you order a product or service, or other address that you submit to the Website.

If you and AAEE are not able to resolve such a Dispute, we each agree that any and all Disputes shall be submitted to final and binding arbitration before a single arbitrator of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in a location convenient to you. Either party may commence the arbitration process by submitting a written demand for arbitration with the AAA, and providing a copy to the other party. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the provisions of the AAA’s Commercial Dispute Resolutions Procedures, Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, in effect at the time of submission of the arbitration demand. We will pay the filing costs, including arbitrator fees. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the following shall not be subject to arbitration and may be adjudicated only in the Maricopa County Superior Court or the United States District Court for the District of Arizona: (i) any dispute, controversy, or claim relating to or contesting the validity of the our proprietary rights, including without limitation, trademarks, service marks, copyrights, or trade secrets; or (ii) an action by a party for temporary, preliminary, or permanent injunctive relief, whether prohibitive or mandatory, or other provisional relief. You expressly agree to refrain from bringing or joining any claims in any representative or class-wide capacity, including but not limited to bringing or joining any claims in any class action or any class-wide arbitration.

YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WOULD HAVE HAD A RIGHT TO LITIGATE THROUGH A COURT, TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE YOUR CASE AND TO BE PARTY TO A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. HOWEVER, YOU UNDERSTAND AND CHOOSE TO HAVE ANY CLAIMS DECIDED INDIVIDUALLY AND ONLY THROUGH ARBITRATION.
