PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. EXCEPT AS THE TERMS OF USE OTHERWISE PROVIDE, YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHTS TO TRY ANY CLAIM IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY AND TO BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. 

Agreement to Binding Arbitration 

Any dispute, claim or controversy between you and USA Gun Shop, should go to arbitration first.  

The arbitrator also has the sole authority to and shall address all claims or arguments by both parties concerning the formation, legality, and enforceability of this arbitration, the scope of this problem, and the arbitrability of any claim or issue arising between us. 

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Terms of Use as a court would. 

Jury Trial and Class Action Waiver 

Except as the Terms of Use otherwise provide, you and USA Gun Shop acknowledge and agree that you are each waiving the right to a trial by jury and to the litigation of disputes in state or federal courts of general jurisdiction.  

The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action/class arbitration, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis.  

You and USA Gun Shop may not be plaintiffs or class members in any purported class, collective, private attorney general, or representative proceeding, or otherwise make or proceed with any claim on a collective or consolidated basis, and may each bring claims against the other only in your or its individual capacity. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only on an individual basis and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim. Other rights that you would have if you went to court, such as access to discovery, also may be unavailable or limited in arbitration. 

Governing Law 

You and US Gun SHop agree that any claim between us involves commerce under, and is governed exclusively by, the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) and federal law, and not by any state or local laws, or the laws of other countries, Where otherwise applicable, the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts apply. 

Initiating Arbitration and Arbitration Rules 

Prior to initiating any arbitration, the initiating party will give the other party at least 60-days’ advance written notice of its intent to file for arbitration During such 60-day notice period, the parties will endeavor to settle amicably by mutual discussions any Covered Disputes. Failing such amicable settlement and expiration of the notice period, either party may initiate arbitration. 

Any arbitration will be held before a single neutral arbitrator and will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules and the Consumer Due Process Protocol (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) as currently in effect, and as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at https://www.adr.org/consumer, by calling the AAA at 800-778-7879, or by writing to the AAA Notice Address set forth below. To the extent that there is a conflict between this clause and the AAA Rules, the arbitrator shall resolve such conflicts so as to preserve the parties’ mutual obligation to arbitrate claims on an individual basis. 

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to the AAA and to. The AAA’s address is: American Arbitration Association Case Filing Services, 1101 Laurel Oak Road, Suite 100, Voorhees, NJ 08043 (the “AAA Notice Address”). You may also send a copy to the AAA online at https://www.adr.org

You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. 

Arbitration Fees 

Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise,USA Gun Shop will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. 

We are committed to providing for dispute resolution at a reasonable cost to consumers consistent with the AAA Rules, and any matters related to such cost, if not agreed to by you and us, will be decided by the arbitrator. 

Other 

To the extent that any other provision of the Terms of Use is found to be inconsistent with rights, duties, and requirements of this arbitration agreement, or where the application of such a provision would change or render unenforceable any part of this arbitration agreement, such provision shall be null and void and the terms of this arbitration agreement shall control.
