FORM OF DISPUTE RESOLUTION
If a Dispute arises, the parties shall first attempt in good faith to resolve it promptly by negotiation. Any of the parties involved in the Dispute may initiate negotiation by providing notice (the “Dispute Notice”) to each involved party setting forth the subject of the Dispute and the relief sought by the party providing the Dispute Notice, and designating a representative who has full authority to negotiate and settle the Dispute. Within ten (10) business days after the Dispute Notice is provided, each recipient shall respond to all other known recipients of the Dispute Notice with notice of the recipient’s position on and recommended solution to the Dispute, and designating a representative who has full authority to negotiate and settle the Dispute. Within twenty (20) business days after the Dispute Notice is provided, the representatives designated by the parties shall confer either in person at a mutually acceptable time and place or by telephone, and thereafter as often as they reasonably deem necessary to attempt to resolve the Dispute.
At any time twenty (20) business days or more after the Dispute Notice is provided, but prior to the initiation of arbitration, regardless of whether negotiations are continuing, any party may submit the Dispute to JAMS (Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services - http://www.jamsadr.com) for mediation by providing notice of such request to all other concerned parties and providing such notice and a copy of all relevant Dispute Notices and notices responding to JAMS. In such case, the parties shall cooperate with JAMS and with one another in selecting a mediator from the JAMS panel of neutrals and in promptly scheduling the mediation proceedings, and shall participate in good faith in the mediation either in person at a mutually acceptable time and place or by telephone, in accordance with the then-prevailing JAMS’s mediation procedures and this Section, which shall control.
Any Dispute not resolved in writing by negotiation or mediation shall be subject to and shall be settled exclusively by final binding arbitration before a single arbitrator in Los Angeles, California or a mutually agreeable location in accordance with the then-prevailing Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). No party may commence arbitration with respect to any Dispute unless that party has pursued negotiation and, if requested, mediation, provided, however, that no party shall be obligated to continue to participate in negotiation or mediation if the parties have not resolved the Dispute in writing within sixty (60) business days after the Dispute Notice was provided to any party or such longer period as may be agreed by the parties in writing. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the mediator shall be disqualified from serving as arbitrator in the case. Notwithstanding any contrary rules promulgated by the AAA, the following shall apply to all Arbitration actions:
- The Federal Rules of Evidence shall apply in all cases;
- The parties shall be entitled to all discovery rights permitted by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure;
- The parties shall be entitled to bring motions under Rules 12 and/or 56 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure;
- The arbitration shall occur within one hundred-twenty (120) days from the date on which the arbitrator is appointed, and shall last no more than five (5) business days;
- The parties shall be allotted equal time to present their respective cases, including cross-examinations.
All communications, whether verbal, written or electronic, in any negotiation, mediation or arbitration action shall be treated as confidential and those made in the course of negotiation or mediation, including any offer, promise or other statement, whether made by any of the parties, their agents, employees, experts, or attorneys, or by the mediator or any JAMS employee, shall also be treated as compromise and settlement negotiations for purposes of applicable rules of evidence and shall be inadmissible for any purpose, including impeachment, in any arbitration or other proceeding involving the parties, provided that evidence that is otherwise admissible or discoverable shall not be rendered inadmissible or non-discoverable as a result of its use in negotiation or mediation.
The costs of negotiation, mediation, and arbitration, including fees and expenses of any mediator, arbitrator, JAMS, the American Arbitration Association, or other persons independent of all parties acting with the consent of the parties to facilitate settlement, shall be shared in equal measure by the user of the Site, on the one hand, and Naturium and any Related Parties involved, on the other. The parties shall bear their own legal fees and expenses of negotiation, mediation and arbitration.
Any party may seek specific performance of this Section, and any party may seek to compel each other party to comply with the provisions of this Section by petition to a court of competent jurisdiction in the State of California. The pendency of a mediation shall not preclude a party from seeking provisional remedies in aid of the arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction in the State of California, and the parties agree not to defend against any application for provisional relief on the ground that a mediation is pending. The prevailing party in any proceeding enforcing the provisions of this Section shall be entitled to recover from the other party the reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs incurred by the petitioning party in obtaining the requested relief. If any portion of this Section is held to be unenforceable for any reason, the remainder shall remain in full force and effect.
Nothing in this Section shall preclude any party from seeking interim or provisional relief concerning the Dispute, including a temporary restraining order, a temporary or preliminary injunction, or an order of attachment, either prior to or during negotiation, mediation or arbitration.
