You will communicate your Dispute to us by contacting IVS at support@primuspvx.com with “Dispute” in the subject line, or calling +1 (800) 290-2644. You will not bring any suit or initiate arbitration proceedings regarding a Dispute until sixty (60) days after the date on which you communicated your Dispute to User Support.

22.2       Any and all Disputes including bur not limited to, those relating to the arbitrability of these Terms of Use and the enforceability of this arbitration agreement, will be brought for exclusive resolution by binding arbitration before a single arbitrator, rather than in court, except that you and we may bring Disputes on an individual basis in small claims court if they qualify. This includes any Disputes you assert against us, our Relations, or any other companies offering products or services through us (all of which are beneficiaries of this arbitration agreement).

 

22.3       There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including but not limited to, statutory damages, attorneys’ fees and costs).The arbitrator must follow and enforce these Terms of Use.

22.0. We are each responsible for our own legal and filing fees and will split the arbitrator’s fees.

 

22.5       Any and all proceedings EKN to resolve Disputes will be conducted only on an individual basis, and not in a class, consolidated, or representative action. The arbitrator will have authority to decide issues as to the scope of this arbitration agreement and the arbitrability of Disputes. If for any reason a Dispute winds up in court rather than in arbitration, YOU UNDERSTAND AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.

 

22.6       To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send us an email requesting arbitration and describing in detail your Disputes, to support@primusivs.com with “Arbitration” in the subject line. If we request arbitration against you, we will give you notice at the email address or street address you have provided.

22.7       This arbitration agreement is governed by and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law. An arbitration decision may be filed in a court with competent jurisdiction as a final, non-appealable judgement.

 

22.8       Nothing in this Section 22.0 is a waiver of any of our Remedies, or precludes us from either instituting a Claim in any jurisdiction or from joining you in a Claim brought by a Person against us in any jurisdiction, although our failure to join you in any Claim in one instance isn’t a waiver of any of our rights with respect to that Claim, or any subsequent Claim brought by a Person against us.

 

22.9       A printed version of the current version of these Terms of Use is admissible in any proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms of Use, to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
