ARBITRATION

Except if you opt-out or for disputes relating to your or Poole Shop’s intellectual property (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights and patents) (“Excluded Disputes”), you agree that all disputes between you and Poole Shop (whether or not such dispute involves a third party) with regard to your relationship with Poole Shop, including without limitation disputes related to the Terms of Service, your use of our Services, and/or rights of privacy and/or publicity, will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration under the American Arbitration Association’s rules for arbitration of consumer-related disputes and you and Poole Shop hereby expressly waive trial by jury. As an alternative, you may bring your claim in your local “small claims” court, if permitted by that small claims court's rules. You may bring claims only on your own behalf.

Neither you nor Poole Shop will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by the Terms of Service. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person's account, if Poole Shop is a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. In the event the American Arbitration Association is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within one hundred and sixty (160) days of filing the case, then either Poole Shop or you can elect to have the arbitration administered instead by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms of Use.

You may opt out of this agreement to arbitrate. If you do so, neither you nor Poole Shop can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, you must notify Poole Shop in writing within 30 days of the date that you first became subject to this arbitration provision by sending such written opt-out notice to 4010 Sharon Road Charlotte, NC 28211. You must include your name and residence address, the email address you use for Poole Shop, and a clear statement that you want to opt out of this arbitration agreement. If the prohibition against class actions and other claims brought on behalf of third parties contained above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this Arbitration section will be null and void.
This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Poole Shop. You agree that any claim you may have arising out of or related to your relationship with Poole Shop must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, your claim is permanently barred.

SEVERABILITY

If any provision of the Terms of Service is found by a court or other binding authority to be invalid, you agree that every attempt shall be made to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in that provision, and the remaining provisions contained in the Terms of Service shall continue in full force and effect.


GOVERNING LAW

The Terms of Service and any separate agreements whereby we provide access to our Services shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of North Carolina, without giving effect to principles of conflicts of law.

For any action at law or in equity relating to the arbitration provision of the Terms of Service, the Excluded Disputes or if you opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, you agree any legal action or proceeding between Poole Shop and you relating to the Terms of Service or the Services shall be brought exclusively in a court of competent jurisdiction sitting in Charlotte, North Carolina, United States, and you agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of such courts.
