By accessing The Website or requesting a return contact from Oasis Community Foundation, you agree to the Website Agreement, including the following Arbitration Provision in connection with your dealings with Oasis Community Foundation:
As an express condition of accessing or using The Website or using the services of Oasis Community Foundation, you and Oasis Community Foundation each agree that any and all claims, disputes, or controversies that have arisen or occurred or may arise or occur between you and Oasis Community Foundation relating in any way to this Agreement, The Website, communications between you and Oasis Community Foundation, or services provided by Oasis Community Foundation, services failed to be provided by Oasis Community Foundation, or any other use by you or access by you to Oasis Community Foundation’s services, or any products or services sold, offered, or purchased through Oasis Community Foundation shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, instead of by a court of law or court of equity. Arbitration under this section concerns a transaction involving interstate commerce and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq.
This Arbitration Agreement replaces and supersedes any prior “Arbitration Agreement,” “Class Action Waiver,” “Dispute Resolution,” “Judicial Reference,” “Jury Waiver,” or similar agreement or provision between you and Oasis Community Foundation.
Prohibition of Class Actions or Other Representative Actions. You and Oasis Community Foundation agree that each may bring claims against the other only on an individual basis. This means that neither party may act or participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding against the other. Unless both parties (you and Oasis Community Foundation) agree in writing, the arbitrator may not join or consolidate the claims of more than a single party and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class action or consolidated proceeding, whether by a group or representative. In addition, the arbitrator may only award individual relief, in whatever form that individual relief may take, such as monetary, injunctive, and/or declaratory relief. Furthermore, such relief may only be awarded to an individual party to the extent necessary to redress that party’s individual claim(s). Any relief awarded cannot affect any other parties, claimants, or non-parties.
Jury Waiver. You and Oasis Community Foundation hereby waive all rights to a trial in connection with all claims, disputes, or controversies that have arisen or occurred or may arise or occur between you and Oasis Community Foundation. If such claims, disputes, or controversies are not submitted to binding arbitration (for whatever reason), then such shall be decided by a judge sitting without a jury.
Arbitration Provision Survival. The Arbitration Provisions of this Agreement shall survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement or any other change of relationship between the parties and shall survive an amended agreement between the parties UNLESS such amended agreement expressly overrides or revokes (in a writing executed by both parties) the Arbitration Provisions of this Agreement.
Additional Terms Governing Arbitration
Unless otherwise agreed between you and Oasis Community Foundation in a writing signed by you and Oasis Community Foundation, Arbitration shall take place before a single arbitrator through either the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service, Inc. (JAMS) or the Forum, as selected by the first party to initiate arbitration under this Agreement. Arbitration, unless otherwise agreed in a writing signed by you and Oasis Community Foundation, shall proceed in accordance with the rules of the arbitration forum selected (either JAMS or the Forum, hereinafter referred to as the Arbitration Administrator). To the extent that you and Oasis Community Foundation can agree in writing, a specific, licensed attorney may be selected in place of the previously identified, potential Arbitration Administrators, to conduct the Arbitration. In the event that JAMS and the Forum refuse to administer the Arbitration and the parties cannot agree on a specific, licensed attorney to conduct the Arbitration, then either party may file a lawsuit in the venue provided for by other sections of this Agreement (or as they may agree upon in writing) and move the Court for an Order requiring Arbitration and that the Court select and arbitrator with substantial experience in the type of dispute at issue. In such an instance, the arbitrator selected shall apply the laws of the United States and the State of Georgia to the Arbitration, regardless of principles on the conflict of laws or where each party resides or is located. Questions relating to the scope of the Arbitration Agreement shall be determined solely by the Arbitrator. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction pursuant to this Agreement except that, if the arbitration award exceeds $100,000, any party shall be entitled to appeal the award before a panel of three arbitrators. To that end, if the award (including the Arbitration Administrator, arbitrator, costs, and attorney’s fees) exceeds $100,000, the arbitrator shall issue a written, reasoned decision supporting the award with facts and legal authority and their application to the dispute arbitrated between the parties sufficient for a fair and reasonable review by the panel of arbitrators. An appeal under this provision must be filed with the arbitrator within thirty (30) days following the date of the arbitration award or the arbitration award shall become final and binding. On appeal, the arbitrators shall make a new or “de novo” review of the award which does not require any deference to the ruling of the original arbitrator as to findings of fact and conclusions of law. Appeal of an arbitration award shall be pursuant to the rules of the Arbitration Administrator. If the Arbitration Administrator has no such rules or a licensed attorney arbitrator is used, then the JAMS arbitration appellate rules shall apply.
Arbitration Costs. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the rules of the Arbitration Administrator selected (or as may otherwise be agreed in writing between the parties) or as otherwise provided for in this Agreement to Arbitrate. If you initiate any Arbitration pursuant to the terms of this Agreement and the relief sought by you is $5,000 or less, Oasis Community Foundation agrees to reimburse you one half of the Arbitration Administrator’s initial filing fee, up to $500. If Oasis Community Foundation Initiates Arbitration pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, Oasis Community Foundation will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration, subject to a claim for reimbursement for the same as part of the Arbitration award. In the event the arbitrator determines any claim(s) asserted by either party in the Arbitration to be frivolous, the other party shall be entitled to a reimbursement for all fees associated with the Arbitration paid by the party which asserted any such frivolous claim(s).
Judicial Forum for Legal Disputes. Unless otherwise agreed between the parties, you and Oasis Community Foundation agree that should the Arbitration Agreement set forth herein be held or determined not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute, it is agreed between the parties that any and all claims, disputes, or controversies that have arisen or occurred or may arise or occur between the parties shall be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in Marietta, Georgia. You and Oasis Community Foundation agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Marietta, Georgia, for the purpose of litigating all such claims, disputes, or controversies.
Severability of the Arbitration Provision. If the arbitrator or a court decides that any part of this Arbitration Agreement is invalid or otherwise unenforceable, the other parts of this Arbitration Agreement shall remain in effect unless the provision entitled “Prohibition of Class Actions or Other Representative Actions” is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable, in which event the entire Arbitration Provisions of this Agreement shall be null and void (with all non-Arbitration related provisions of this Agreement remaining in force).
