BestNewPoems.com Disputes

If there is any dispute about or involving the BestNewPoems.com, you agree that the dispute shall be governed by the laws of the State of Illinois, USA, without regard to conflict of law provisions and, without limiting the requirement that all disputes between us are subject the arbitration, you agree to exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts of the United States located in the State of Illinois, Montgomery County. Either BestNewPoems.com or you may demand that any dispute between BestNewPoems.com and you about or involving the BestNewPoems.com must be settled by arbitration utilizing the dispute resolution procedures of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) in Hillsboro, IL, USA, provided that the foregoing shall not prevent BestNewPoems.com from seeking injunctive relief in a court of competent jurisdiction.

You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and James Allen are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to us should be addressed to: BestNewPoems.com(James Allen), 7190 Illinois Rt. 16, Hillsboro, IL ("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 we and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or James Allen may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by us or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which a party is entitled.
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. YOU AND JAMES ALLEN 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 James Allen agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's 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.

If any party files a judicial, administrative or arbitration action asserting a claim that is subsequently rejected, dismissed, lost or otherwise unsuccessful, the party filing that action must pay the other party's costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees.
