These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the state of Missouri without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Any disputes arising under or related in any way to these Terms, the Site, any Application or any Services shall be resolved solely through binding mediation in Saint Charles County, Missouri, and judgment upon any award rendered in such mediation will be binding and conclusive on the parties hereto and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND AGREEMENT TO MEDIATE CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
Please read the following carefully. It affects your rights.
Most problems that users encounter can be resolved quickly by contacting us at email@example.com. You and Reliable Resumes each agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Reliable Resumes shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding mediation, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify.
Mediation is more informal than a lawsuit in court. There is no judge or jury, and by agreeing to mediation, you and Reliable Resumes waive the right to a judge or jury. Instead, mediation uses a neutral mediator to decide the dispute, and court review of a mediation award is limited. However, a mediator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. A mediator also must follow these Terms and Conditions as a court would. You have the right to opt-out of this Agreement to Mediate (as explained below), which means that you would retain your right to litigate your disputes in a court, either before a judge or jury.
For the purpose of this provision, "Reliable Resumes” means Reliable Resumes and its parents, subsidiaries and affiliated companies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees and agents. The term "Dispute" means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Reliable Resumes regarding any aspect of your relationship with Reliable Resumes, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability, or scope of this provision (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). "Dispute" is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced, and shall include any claims against other parties relating to services or products provided or billed to you (such as Reliable Resumes licensors, suppliers, dealers, or third party vendors) whenever you also assert claims against us in the same proceeding.
WE AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY MEDIATION.
Pre-Mediation Claim Resolution
If you have a Dispute with Reliable Resumes, you must first give us an opportunity to resolve the Dispute before filing a claim (or any other legal proceeding if you elect to violate the obligation to mediate your Dispute). You do that by sending a notice to: firstname.lastname@example.org. That notice must include (1) your name, (2) your address, telephone number, and e-mail address (if not apparent from the sent email), (3) a description of your claim, and (4) a description of the specific relief you are asking for. If Reliable Resumes does not resolve the Dispute within 15 days after it receives your notice, you may pursue your Dispute through mediation. You may pursue your Dispute in a court only under the circumstances described below.
If this Section applies and the Dispute is not resolved through Pre-Mediation Claim Resolution (above), then either you or Reliable Resumes may initiate formal mediation proceedings.
Mediation will be provided by a certified mediator.
The mediator selected for such proceedings is: Mr. Michael Sherman, Certified Mediator, 3998 Mid Rivers Mall Drive, Saint Peters, Missouri 63376; telephone: 636.939.4343
The mediation shall be commenced as an individual mediation, and shall in no event be commenced on a class basis. All issues shall be for a mediator to decide, including the scope of this Section.
To begin a mediation proceeding, you must send a letter requesting mediation and describing your claim to Reliable Resumes, 1435 Mohican Trail, Saint Charles, MO, 63304. The mediation will be conducted before a single mediator, as indicated above. If the value of the relief sought is $5,000 or less, you or Reliable Resumes may elect to have the mediation conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and Reliable Resumes, subject to the mediator's discretion to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. Attendance at an in-person hearing may be made by telephone by you and/or Reliable Resumes, unless the mediator requires otherwise.
The mediator will not have the power to award relief to, against or for the benefit of any person who is not a party to the proceeding. The mediator will make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. The mediation award will be final and binding on the parties.
Payment of Mediation Fees and Costs
There are no mediation filing fees or costs. You are responsible for all additional fees and costs that you incur in the mediation, including, but not limited to, attorneys' fees or expert witness fees and expenses. In addition to any rights to recover fees and costs under applicable law, if you provide notice to and negotiate in good faith with Reliable Resumes as provided in the section above, and the mediator concludes that you are the prevailing party, you will be entitled to recover reasonable fees.
Class Action Waiver
YOU AND RELIABLE RESUMES AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND RELIABLE RESUMES AGREE OTHERWISE, THE MEDIATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER RELIABLE RESUMES USERS AND SHALL NOT BE ADMISSIBLE IN ANY OTHER MEDIATION OR OTHER LEGAL PROCEEDING.
THE MEDIATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). Neither you, nor any other user of the Site can serve as a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, consolidated, or representative proceeding without having complied with the opt-out requirements above.
You understand and agree that by entering into this Agreement, you and Reliable Resumes are each waiving the right to a jury trial or a trial before a judge in a public court. In the absence of this Agreement to Mediate, you and Reliable Resumes might otherwise have had a right or opportunity to bring Disputes in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including class actions). Except as otherwise provided in this Section, those rights are waived. Other rights that you would have if you went to court, such as the right to appeal and to certain types of discovery, may be more limited or may also be waived.
If any clause within this Agreement to Mediate (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Section, and the remainder of this Section will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be unenforceable, this entire Agreement to Mediate will be unenforceable and the Dispute will be decided by a court.
These Terms, as amended, and the disclosures provided by the Company and the consents provided by you, constitute the entire agreement between you and the Company. If any provision of these Terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. The Company's failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive the Company's right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches.
You agree that the Company may amend or modify these Terms or impose new conditions at any time by updating these Terms on the Site or upon notice from the Company to you as published through the Site or by email. Any use of the Site or order by you after such updating shall be deemed to constitute acceptance of such amendments, modifications, or new conditions. If you do not want to be bound by an amendment, you should refrain from using the Site or using or ordering Services. No other amendments will be valid unless they are in a paper writing signed by the Company and by you.
Except as expressly stated otherwise, any notices required or allowed under these Terms shall be given to the Company by postal mail to: Reliable Resumes, 1435 Mohican Trail, Saint Charles, MO, 63304, or as to a successor address that the Company makes available on the Site or through other reasonable manner. If applicable law requires that Company accepts email notices (but not otherwise), then you may send the Company email notice using the Company's Comments section of the Submit Information form (mailto: email@example.com). With respect to Company's notices to you, Company may provide notice of amendments by posting them in the Site or through email, and you agree to check for changes. Instead or in addition, the Company may give notice by sending email to the email address you provide during registration. Notice shall be deemed given 24 hours after it is posted or an email is sent, unless (as to email) the sending party is notified that the email address is invalid.
