- Class Action Waiver
Any Claim must be brought in the party’s individual capacity, and not as a class member in any purported class, collective, representative, multiple plaintiff, or similar basis (“Class Action”), and the parties expressly waive any ability to maintain any Class Action in any forum whatsoever, including, but not limited to, any action based on the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, California Consumer Privacy Act, other state and federal laws related to privacy of personal information or data security, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or other state and federal laws related to the collection of debts. Any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable shall be determined only by an arbitrator in accordance with the Mandatory Arbitration provision set forth herein. THE PARTIES UNDERSTAND THAT THEY WOULD HAVE HAD A RIGHT TO LITIGATE AS A PARTY TO A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, HOWEVER, THEY UNDERSTAND AND CHOOSE TO HAVE ANY CLAIMS DECIDED INDIVIDUALLY. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THIS PROVISION IS INTENDED TO AND SHALL SURVIVE TERMINATION OF THIS OR ANY OTHER AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PARTIES.
- Mandatory Arbitration
You and TruGreen agree that any claim, dispute or controversy (“Claim”) between us or against the other or the employees, agents or assigns of the other, and any Claim arising from or relating to these Terms or the relationships which result from these Terms including, but not limited to, any tort or statutory Claim shall be resolved by neutral binding arbitration conducted by the American Arbitration Association(“AAA”), under the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (if you are a natural person) or the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules (if you are a business entity) in effect at the time the Claim is filed (“AAA Rules”). Prior to submitting a Claim to arbitration, you or TruGreen must provide written notice to the other party of the Claim and allow at least thirty (30) days for informal resolution.
The demand for arbitration shall be made within a reasonable time after the dispute has arisen, but in no event shall it be made more than one year from when the aggrieved party knew or should have known of the controversy, claim, or facts forming the basis of the dispute. Each party shall be responsible for paying its own attorneys’ fees, costs, and expenses. Arbitration fees and arbitrator compensation shall be payable as provided in the AAA Rules. However, for a Claim of $15,000 or less brought by you in your capacity, if you so request in writing, TruGreen will pay your arbitration fees and arbitrator compensation due to the AAA for such Claim to the extent they exceed any filing fees that you would pay to a court with jurisdiction over the Claim.AAA Rules and forms may be obtained and all claims shall be filed at any AAA office, www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879.
Any arbitration hearing at which the parties appear personally will take place at a location within the United States federal judicial district in which the subject property is located.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, the arbitrator shall not have the power to award special, consequential, punitive, exemplary, or indirect damages against any party. The arbitrator’s power to conduct any arbitration proceeding under this arbitration agreement shall be limited as follows: any arbitration proceeding under this agreement will not be consolidated or joined with any arbitration proceeding under any other agreement, or involving any other property or premises, and will not proceed as a consolidated, class action, multi-claimant, or private attorney general action. The foregoing prohibition on consolidated, class action, multi-claimant, and private attorney general arbitrations is an essential and integral part of this arbitration agreement and is not severable. The decision of the arbitrator shall be a final and binding resolution of the Claim.
This arbitration agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. Judgment upon the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Neither party shall dispute the enforcement of this arbitration agreement or the arbitrator’s award. If either party unsuccessfully disputes the enforcement of this agreement or the arbitrator’s award, then that party shall pay the attorney’s fees and costs of the adverse party. THE PARTIES UNDERSTAND THAT THEY WOULD HAVE HAD A RIGHT OR OPPORTUNITY TO LITIGATE DISPUTES THROUGH A COURT AND TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE THEIR CASE, BUT THEY CHOOSE TO HAVE ANY DISPUTES DECIDED THROUGH ARBITRATION. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THIS PROVISION IS INTENDED TO AND SHALL SURVIVE TERMINATION OF THIS OR ANY OTHER AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PARTIES.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Claim that is within the Claim type and amount limits of the small claims court (or similar judicial process) of the jurisdiction in which the Claim arose will be submitted to the applicable small claims court in lieu of resolution by mandatory arbitration. If the Claim is transferred or appealed from the small claims court, either party may elect to remove the Claim from the judicial process and subject it to mandatory arbitration.
