12.DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION
(a)If a dispute, claim, or controversy of any kind arises out of or relates to the Card, these Terms & Conditions, or the purchase, sale, or use of the Card, you and we agree to resolve any such dispute, claim, or controversy exclusively through binding arbitration.? You should review this provision carefully. This arbitration provision limits your and our ability to litigate claims in court, and you and we each agree to waive your and our respective rights to a jury trial.? Any arbitration under this provision shall take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted.? You will not have the right to participate as a class representative, private attorney general, or member of any class of claimants for any claim subject to arbitration.? A claim by, or on behalf of, other persons will not be considered in, joined with, or consolidated with the arbitration proceedings between you and us.? Any dispute regarding the prohibitions in the prior sentence shall be resolved by the arbitrator in accordance with this arbitration provision.
(b)Arbitration is usually an informal proceeding in which disputes are decided by one or more neutral arbitrators who receive the evidence at a hearing and then issue a binding ruling in the form of an award.? You and we understand that in an arbitration, discovery is more limited than in a court, and review by courts is very limited.
(c)A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (a ?Notice?).? Any Notice to us should be addressed to General Counsel, Bass Pro Group, LLC 2500 E. Kearney Street, Springfield, MO, 65898 (the ?Notice Address?).? Any Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the dispute, claim, or controversy and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought.? If you and we do not reach an agreement to resolve the dispute, claim, or controversy within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding.? During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or we shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or we are entitled.
(d)You and we agree, upon written demand made by you or us, to submit to binding arbitration of any and all disputes, claims, and controversies between you and us, whether based on contract, tort, fraudulent misrepresentation, statute, regulation, constitution, common law, equity, or any other legal basis or theory, and whether pre-existing, present, or future, that arise out of or relate to these Terms & Conditions, the Card, the benefits provided by the Card, any advertisements, promotions, or oral or written statements related to the Card, any relationships that result from the purchase or use of the Card (including, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, relationships with third parties who are not parties to these Terms & Conditions or this arbitration provision), or the scope or enforceability of these Terms & Conditions, including the determination of the applicability of this agreement to arbitrate (collectively, ?Claims?).? All parties retain the right to seek relief in a small claims court for Claims within the jurisdictional limits of the small claims court.? The arbitration of any Claim shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the ?AAA?) or any other arbitrator mutually agreed upon by you and us.? In any event, the arbitration of any Claim shall be conducted in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the ?Rules?).? The Rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling 800.778.7879.? In the event of any inconsistency between this arbitration provision and the Rules, such inconsistency shall be resolved in favor of this arbitration provision.? This arbitration provision is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and the Federal Arbitration Act shall apply to the construction, interpretation, and enforceability of these Terms & Conditions, notwithstanding any other choice of law provision contained in these Terms & Conditions.
(e)After the 30 day period in 12(c) above, either you or we may initiate arbitration by giving written notice of the intention to arbitrate to the other party and by filing notice with the AAA in accordance with the Rules in effect at the time the notice is filed. ?We may be given notice at the Notice Address.?
(f)A single arbitrator shall decide all Claims. The arbitrator shall be an active member in good standing of the bar for any state in the continental United States and shall be either actively engaged in the practice of law for at least five years or a retired judge.????
(g)You and we agree that the arbitrator shall: (i) limit discovery to non-privileged matters directly relevant to the Claim; (ii) grant only relief that is based upon and consistent with substantial evidence and applicable substantive law; (iii) have authority to grant relief only with respect to Claims asserted by or against you individually; and (iv) provide a written statement stating the disposition of each Claim and a concise written explanation of the basis for the award and shall make specific findings of fact and conclusions of law to support any arbitration award.? Unless inconsistent with applicable law, and except as otherwise provided herein, each party shall bear the expense of its respective attorney, expert, and witness fees, regardless of which party prevails in the arbitration.? We will pay to the AAA any portion of the arbitration filing fee that exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit in the federal court where you live.? If you are unable to pay the filing fee, we will pay it directly upon receiving a written request. ?We will pay all of the remaining administration fees and other costs, including the arbitrator?s fees, for any non-frivolous Claim (measured by the standards set forth in Rule 11(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure) that does not exceed $15,000.? For all other Claims, the arbitrator will decide whether we or you will ultimately be responsible for paying any fees or other costs in connection with the arbitration under the Rules.? Any arbitration proceedings shall be conducted in the federal judicial district of your residence, and you will be given the opportunity to attend the proceeding and be heard.? If your Claim is for $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing in accordance with the Rules.? Judgment upon any award rendered in arbitration may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction.
(h)Demand for arbitration under this arbitration provision must be made before the date when any judicial action upon the same Claim would be barred under any applicable statute of limitations; otherwise, the Claim is also barred in arbitration.? Any dispute as to whether any statute of limitations, estoppel, waiver, laches, or other doctrine bars the arbitration of any Claim shall be decided by arbitration in accordance with this arbitration provision.
(i)Nothing in this arbitration provision shall limit the right of you or us, whether before, during, or after the pendency of any arbitration proceeding, to exercise any self-help remedies, such as set-off, or to obtain provisional or ancillary remedies or injunctive or other traditionally equitable relief, such as filing an interpleader action or seeking enforcement of intellectual property rights.? You and we agree that the taking of these actions or any other participation in such litigation by you or us does not waive any right that either you or we have to demand arbitration at any time with respect to any subsequent or amended Claim filed against you or us after commencement of litigation between you and us.
(j)You may choose to opt out of these arbitration procedures within 30 days from the date you accept these Terms (?Opt Out Deadline?).? You may opt out of these arbitration procedures by completing the opt-out form located at www.basspro.com/giftcardarbitrationoptout and sending the opt-out form to the following notice address: ?Arbitration Director, Bass Pro Group, LLC, 2500 E.?Kearney Street, Springfield, Missouri 65898.? Any opt-out received after the Opt Out Deadline will not be valid and you must pursue your Claims in arbitration or small claims court.
(k)If any portion of this arbitration provision is deemed invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portions of this arbitration provision will remain valid and enforceable.
