THESE ELKINGTON ELECTRIC TERMS CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS, AS WELL AS CONDITIONS, LIMITATIONS, AND EXCLUSIONS THAT MIGHT APPLY TO YOU. PLEASE READ THESE ELKINGTON ELECTRIC TERMS CAREFULLY.
THESE ELKINGTON ELECTRIC TERMS REQUIRE THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS (SEE THE SECTION ENTITLED “DISPUTE RESOLUTION – ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER" BELOW).

Dispute Resolution – Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law and except for small claims or if you choose to opt-out as provided below, you and Elkington Electric agree to resolve any claims, demands, disagreements, or disputes between us whether based in contract, tort, statute or otherwise arising from or related to these Elkington Electric Terms or our relationship, including advertising and other communications between you and Elkington Electric, Elkington Electric Products or Services, and as applicable, your credit application, or the purchase or condition of a vehicle (a “Dispute”) by binding arbitration conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules, unless you and we agree otherwise. For more information on arbitration and to access the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules, please visit: www.adr.org. If the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules conflict with this Agreement, then this Agreement shall control. You and we understand that we are both waiving our rights to go to court (other than small claims court, as provided below), to present our claims to a jury and to have claims resolved by a jury trial, and also that judicial appeal rights, if any, are more limited in arbitration than they would be in court.
Unless otherwise prohibited by federal or state law or regulation, any arbitration, and any award issued in an arbitration, shall be kept confidential, except to the extent necessary to seek court intervention (such as to enforce an award).
Initial Dispute Resolution Requirement
Most disputes can be resolved without resort to arbitration or small claims court. For any Dispute, you and we agree that before taking any formal action to initiate arbitration or a small claims suit we will contact the other in an attempt to resolve the Dispute. You will contact us at demands@Elkington Electric.com and provide a brief, written description of the Dispute and your contact information (including your Elkington Electric ID, if you have one). We will contact you at your contact information on file with Elkington Electric. You and Elkington Electric agree to use reasonable efforts to settle any Dispute directly and good faith negotiations shall be a pre-condition to either party initiating a small claims suit or arbitration.
Filing a Demand for Arbitration
If the parties do not reach an agreed-upon solution within a period of 60 days from the time informal dispute resolution is initiated under the Initial Dispute Resolution provision above, then either party may initiate binding arbitration. In order to initiate arbitration, you must file an arbitration demand with AAA. You can find information about AAA and file your arbitration demand at https://www.adr.org/support. You are also required to send a copy of the arbitration demand to us and you should send it by email to: arbitration@Elkington Electric.com.
Fees & Costs
AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules will govern the allocation of arbitration fees and costs between you and Elkington Electric. However, if your arbitration case filing fee exceeds the filing fee you would pay to file the action in a court of law, Elkington Electric will pay the amount of your case filing fee in excess of the filing fee you would pay in a court of law. The amount we pay may be reimbursed in whole or in part by decision of the arbitrator if s/he finds that applicable law allows such reimbursement because your claims were frivolous or brought in bad faith. You are responsible for your own attorneys' fees unless applicable law provides otherwise.
Arbitration Location and Procedure
Arbitration shall be initiated and take place in the city or county of your residence unless you and Elkington Electric agree otherwise, or, if you reside outside of the United States, in Orange County, California. If your claim does not exceed $25,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Elkington Electric submit to the arbitrator. If your claim exceeds $25,000, you and Elkington Electric may agree to conduct arbitration by videoconference or teleconference or conduct a document-only arbitration without any hearing.
This Dispute Resolution – Arbitration and Class Action Waiver, its subject matter, formation and enforceability will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act as interpreted by the federal courts, and not any state law regarding arbitration. The statute of limitations laws of the State in which Elkington Electric is licensed to sell motor vehicles that is nearest to your delivery address, without regard to choice or conflict of law principles, will apply to any claims brought in arbitration.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this Section, including but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Section is void or voidable, whether a claim is subject to arbitration or the question of waiver by litigation conduct. However, the parties agree that any issue concerning the validity of the class action waiver below must be decided by a court, and an arbitrator does not have authority to consider the validity of the waiver. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available to you in your individual capacity in a court under law or in equity, including public injunctive relief. The arbitrator's award shall be written and shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Class Action Waiver
The parties further agree that the arbitration shall be conducted in each party’s respective individual capacity only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND ELKINGTON ELECTRIC AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, NEITHER YOU NOR ELKINGTON ELECTRIC WILL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER CONSUMERS IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. If a court or arbitrator finds this Class Action Waiver provision to be unenforceable as to a particular class or representative action, then this entire Dispute Resolution – Arbitration and Class Action Waiver Section shall be null and void as to that class or representative action, and the action may only be brought in court rather than in arbitration.
Small Claims Court
Subject to the Initial Dispute Resolution Requirement, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court consistent with the jurisdictional limits that apply to that forum.
You may opt-out of this Dispute Resolution – Arbitration and Class Action Waiver Section within 30 days from the date you electronically sign this Agreement (your acceptance of these Elkington Electric Terms provides your electronic signature to this Agreement), by sending an email to optout@Elkington Electric.com from the email associated with your Elkington Electric ID with “Opt-Out of Arbitration” in the subject line and, in the body of the email, your full name and address. You agree that any request will not apply to subsequent agreements between you and Elkington Electric unless the other agreement provides an option to opt out and you follow the requirements outlined in that agreement.
Except as provided in the Class Action Waiver Section above, if any competent legal authority determines any part of this Dispute Resolution – Arbitration and Class Action Waiver Section is illegal or unenforceable, then such part will be eliminated and the remainder of this Dispute Resolution – Arbitration and Class Action Waiver Section will remain in force and effect and the unenforceable part shall be deemed to be modified solely to the extent necessary to make it enforceable.
