Solace Studio + Gallery is committed to resolving all disputes in a fair, effective and cost-efficient manner. We seek to resolve any customer concerns through our Solace Studio + Gallery Support services at 1.888.862.8818. However, if you are dissatisfied with our customer service’s resolution of your matter, these Terms of Service provide that disputes will be resolved in binding arbitration or small claims court. Our arbitration agreement, which is set forth below, has been designed to make arbitration as convenient and inexpensive for our customers as possible. We will abide by the terms of our current arbitration provision in all instances.
(a) We and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us before a single arbitrator. The types of disputes and claims we agree to arbitrate are intended to be broadly interpreted and include:
- Claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory.
- Claims that arose before these or any prior versions of our Terms of Service (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);
- Claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and
- Claims that may arise after termination of these Terms of Service.
For the purposes of this Arbitration Agreement, references to “Solace Studio + Gallery”, “we” and “us” include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or products under these Terms of Service or any prior agreements between us.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. This arbitration agreement does not preclude your bringing issues to the attention of federal, state or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf.
You agree that, by accessing and using this Site, you and we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. These Terms of Service evidence a transaction or website use in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision will survive termination of these Terms of Service.
(b) A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send, by U.S. certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) to the other party. A Notice to Solace Studio + Gallery should be addressed to: Notice of Dispute, Solace Studio + Gallery, 2700 Pennsylvania Ave., Suite 1200 , Santa Monica, CA 90404 (“Notice Address”). The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If you and we do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received by us, you or Solace Studio + Gallery may commence an arbitration proceeding.
During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Solace Studio + Gallery or you prior to selection of an arbitrator shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Solace Studio + Gallery is entitled.
You may download or copy a form Notice from Solace Studio + Gallery General Notice Form (PDF). You may download or copy a form to initiate arbitration from the AAA website (http://adr.org) under the “Forms” tab.
(c) After Solace Studio + Gallery receives a Notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, we will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $75,000. (Currently, the filing fee is $125 for claims under $10,000, but this is subject to change by the arbitration provider. If you are unable to pay this fee, Solace Studio + Gallery will pay it directly after receiving a written request to do so at the Notice Address.) The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, the “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”), as modified by these Terms of Service, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator shall be bound by these Terms of Service. Unless you and we agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your contact address. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, by a telephonic hearing or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If you choose to proceed either in person or by telephone, we may choose to respond only by telephone or submission. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the AAA Rules will determine whether you have a right to a hearing.
Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings of fact and conclusions of law on which the award is based. You and we agree that any awards or findings of fact or conclusions of law made in an arbitration of their dispute or claim are made only for the purposes of that arbitration and may not be used by any other person or entity in any later arbitration of any dispute or claim involving Solace Studio + Gallery You and we agree that in any arbitration of a dispute or claim, neither of us will rely for preclusive effect on any award or finding of fact or conclusion of law made in any other arbitration of any dispute or claim to which we were a party.
Except as otherwise provided for herein, we will pay all AAA filing, administration, and arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated in accordance with the notice requirements above. If, however, the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all such fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse us for all monies previously disbursed by us that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. In addition, if you initiate an arbitration in which you seek more than $75,000 in damages, the payment of these fees will be governed by the AAA rules. An award may be entered against a party who fails to appear at a duly noticed hearing.
(d) If, after finding in your favor in any respect on the merits of your claim, the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of Solace Studio + Gallery’s last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected, then we will:
- pay you either the amount of the award or $2,000 (“the alternative payment”), whichever is greater; and
- pay your attorney, if any, the amount of reasonable attorneys’ fees, and reimburse any expenses (including reasonable expert witness fees and costs), that your attorney reasonably accrues for investigating, preparing and pursuing your claim in arbitration (the “attorneys’ fees”).
If we did not make a written offer to settle the dispute before an arbitrator was selected, you and your attorney will be entitled to receive the alternative payment and reasonable attorneys’ fees, respectively, if the arbitrator awards you any relief on the merits. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees, expenses and the alternative payment and the attorneys’ fees at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within fourteen days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
(e) The right to attorneys’ fees and expenses discussed in paragraph (d) supplements any right to attorneys’ fees and expenses you may have under applicable law. Thus, if you would be entitled to a larger amount under applicable law, this provision does not preclude the arbitrator from awarding you that amount. However, you may not recover duplicative awards of attorneys’ fees or costs. Although we may have a right to recover attorneys’ fees and expenses in certain jurisdictions if we prevail in an arbitration, we will not seek such an award.
(f) The arbitrator may award 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. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS PLAINTIFFS OR CLASS MEMBERS IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OR IN THE CAPACITY OF A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL. The arbitrator shall not have the power to commit errors of law or legal reasoning, and the parties agree that any injunctive award may be vacated or corrected on appeal by either party to a court of competent jurisdiction for any such error. Each party will bear its own costs and fees on any such appeal. Further, unless both you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific proviso is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.
(g) All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential, other than as part of an appeal to a court of competent jurisdiction.
These Terms of Service are applicable to you upon your accessing this Site. The provisions relating to Copyrights, Trademark, Disclaimer, Limitation of Liability, Indemnification, Arbitration and Miscellaneous, shall survive any termination of these Terms of Service.
