ARBITRATION, CLASS – A CTION WAIVER, AND JURY WAIVER
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS CAREFULLY BECAUSE THEY REQUIRE YOU AND PEEL TO AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND PEEL THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION.
You and Peel agree that all claims and disputes (whether contract, tort, or otherwise), including all statutory claims and disputes, arising out of or relating to these Terms or the use of the Services that cannot be resolved in small claims court will be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis, except that you and Peel are not required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents. To be clear: The phrase “all claims and disputes” also includes claims and disputes that arose between us before the effective date of these Terms.
The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this dispute – resolution provision. Arbitration will be initiated through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and will be governed by the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules, available here (link: https://www.adr.org/Active Rules) as of the date of these Terms, or by calling the AAA at 1 – 800 – 778 – 7879. If the AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. The rules of the arbitral forum will govern all aspects of this arbitration, except to the extent those rules conflict with these Terms. The arbitration will be conducted by a single neutral arbitrator. Any claims or disputes where the total amount sought is less than $10,000 .00 USD may be resolved through binding non – appearance – based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief. For claims or disputes where the total amount sought is $10,000 .00 USD or more, the right to a hearing will be determined by the arbitral forum’s rules. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
If non – appearance arbitration is elected, the arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online, written submissions, or any combination of the three; the specific manner will be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration will not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless the parties mutually agree otherwise.
The arbitrator will decide the jurisdiction of the arbitrator and the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Peel. The dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator will have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim or dispute. The arbitrator will have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non – monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and the Terms. The arbitrator will issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and Peel.
YOU AND PEEL WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and Peel are instead electing to have claims and disputes resolved by arbitration. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient, and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In any litigation between you and Peel over whether to vacate or enforce an arbitration award, YOU AND PEEL WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, and elect instead to have the dispute be resolved by a judge.
ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS. CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If, however, this waiver of class or consolidated actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable, neither you nor we are entitled to arbitration; instead all claims and disputes will be resolved in a court as set forth below.
Any rights and limitations set forth in this arbitration agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver will not waive or affect any other portion of this arbitration agreement.
You may opt out of this arbitration agreement. If you do so, neither you nor Peel can force the other to arbitrate. To opt out, you must notify Peel in writing no later than 30 days after first becoming subject to this arbitration agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your Peel username and the email address you used to set up your Peel account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this arbitration agreement.
This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Peel.
To the extent that these Terms allow you or Peel to initiate litigation in a court, both you and Peel agree that all claims and disputes (whether contract, tort, or otherwise), including statutory claims and disputes, arising out of or relating to the Terms or the use of the Services will be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts located in the city of Durham , Durham County, North Carolina , United States , and you consent to personal jurisdiction and waive any objection as to inconvenient forum .
The Terms shall be governed by North Carolina law, without respect to its conflict of laws principles.
The Terms are the entire agreement between you and Peel concerning the Platform, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications between you and Peel with respect to the Platform. If any provision of the Terms is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect. No waiver of any term of the Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Peel’s failure to assert any right or provision under the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to modify, discontinue, or terminate any or all of the Platform at any time, or modify the Terms without notice. All modified terms and conditions will be immediately effective as of the date the modified Term s are posted on the Peel website and will apply to all Accounts and customers enrolled in the Platform. If any modified terms and conditions are not acceptable to you, your sole remedy is to cease using the Services, and if applicable, terminate or cancel your Account. By continuing to access or use the Application and/or the Services after we have posted the new terms and conditions on the site, you agree to be bound by such changes. Customers will be notified by email or in the Application or through other available means if the Platform is suspended or cancelled. Notice of cancellation will also appear on the Peel website.
If you have any questions about the Terms, please contact us at
We hope you will enjoy Peel‘s Platform!
