- Mandatory Arbitration. Please read this carefully. It affects your rights. YOU AND COMPANY AND EACH OF OUR RESPECTIVE CORPORATE PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, PREDECESSORS IN INTEREST, SUCCESSORS, AND PERMITTED ASSIGNS AGREE TO ARBITRATION (EXCEPT FOR MATTERS THAT MAY BE TAKEN TO SMALL CLAIMS COURT), AS THE EXCLUSIVE FORM OF DISPUTE RESOLUTION EXCEPT AS PROVIDED FOR BELOW, FOR ALL DISPUTES AND CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR YOUR USE OF THE SITE. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Please visit www.adr.org for more information about arbitration.
- Commencing Arbitration. A party seeking arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written notice of intent to arbitrate (a “Notice”), or, in the absence of a mailing address provided by you to Company, to you via any other method available to Company, including via e-mail. The Notice to Company should be addressed to WEHPAH INC., 1550 Biscayne Boulevard, Second Floor, Miami, Florida 33132, Attn: General Counsel (the “Address”). The Notice must (A) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (B) set forth the specific relief sought (the “Demand”). If the claim is not resolved within 30 days after the Notice is received, then you or Company may commence an arbitration proceeding as set forth below or file a claim in small claims court. THE ARBITRATION WILL BE ADMINISTERED BY THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION (“AAA”) IN ACCORDANCE WITH ITS COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION RULES AND THE SUPPLEMENTARY PROCEDURES FOR CONSUMER RELATED DISPUTES (THE “Rules”), AS MODIFIED BY THIS AGREEMENT. The Rules and AAA forms are available at www.adr.org. If you are required to pay a filing fee to commence arbitration against Company, then Company will promptly reimburse you for your confirmed payment of the filing fee upon Company’s receipt of Notice at the Address that you have commenced arbitration along with a receipt for the filing fee, unless your Demand is equal to or greater than $1,000 or was filed in bad faith.
- Arbitration Proceeding. The arbitration will be in English. A single independent and impartial arbitrator with his or her primary place of business in Miami-Dade County, Florida, will be appointed pursuant to the Rules, as modified herein. You and Company agree to comply with the following rules, which are intended to streamline the dispute resolution process and reduce the costs and burdens on the parties: (A) the arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner to be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (B) the arbitration will not require any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing by the parties; and (C) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
iii. No Class Actions. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT YOU AND COMPANY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. FURTHER, YOU AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE PROCEEDINGS OF MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, AND THAT IF THIS SPECIFIC PROVISO IS FOUND TO BE UNENFORCEABLE, THEN THIS ENTIRE MANDATORY ARBITRATION SECTION WILL BE NULL AND VOID.
- Decision of the Arbitrator. Barring extraordinary circumstances, the arbitrator will issue his or her decision within 120 days from the date the arbitrator is appointed. The arbitrator may extend this deadline by 30 days in the interests of justice. Arbitration proceedings will be closed to the public and confidential, and all related records will be permanently sealed, except as necessary to obtain court confirmation of the award. The award will be in writing and will include a statement setting forth the reasons for the claim’s disposition. The arbitrator will apply Florida state law during the arbitration. You agree that these terms and your use of the App evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. The United States Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation, enforcement, and proceedings pursuant to the Mandatory Arbitration clause in this Agreement.
- Equitable Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Section 18 do not apply to any claim in which Company seeks equitable relief of any kind. You acknowledge that, in the event of a breach of this Agreement by Company or any third party, the damage or harm, if any, caused to you will not entitle you to seek injunctive or other equitable relief against Company, and your only remedy will be for monetary damages, subject to the limitations of liability set forth above.
- Claims. You and Company agree that, notwithstanding any other rights the party may have under law or equity, any cause of action arising out of or related to this Agreement or the Site, excluding a claim for indemnification, must commence within one year after the cause of action accrues. Otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.
- Improperly Filed Claims. All claims you bring against Company must be resolved in accordance with this Section 18. All claims filed or brought contrary to this Section 18 will be considered improperly filed. Should you file a claim contrary to this Section 18, Company may recover attorneys’ fees and costs up to $5,000, provided that Company has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.
- Modifications. If Company changes the Mandatory Arbitration provision (other than a change to Company’s Address), then you may reject any such change by sending us written notice to Company’s Address within 30 days of the change, in which case your Account and your right to use the Site will terminate immediately, and this Section 18, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject, will survive termination of this Agreement.
- Enforceability. If only Section 18.a.iii or the entirety of this Section 18 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 18 will be null and void and, in such case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 19 will govern any action arising out of or related to this Agreement.
- Governing Law; Choice of Forum. The laws of the State of Florida, excluding its conflicts of law rules, govern this Agreement and your use of the Site. Your use of the Site may also be subject to other local, state, national, or international laws; provided, however, that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to any provision of this Agreement. To the extent that any action relating to any dispute hereunder is permitted to be brought in a court of law, such action will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Miami-Dade County, Florida and you hereby irrevocably submit to personal jurisdiction in such courts, and waive any defense of inconvenient forum.
- Feedback. While our staff continually works to develop and evaluate our own product ideas and features, we pride ourselves on paying close attention to the interests, feedback, comments, and suggestions we receive from our Customers. If you send us or our employees any ideas or suggestions for products, services, features, modifications, enhancements, content, promotions, strategies, or product/feature names, or any related materials (collectively “Feedback”), then regardless of what your communication may say, the following terms apply, to avoid future misunderstandings.

- Company will not be subject to any obligation of confidentiality and will not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Feedback; and
- Company will be entitled to unrestricted use of the Feedback for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to you or any other person.
- Entire Agreement; Variation. This Agreement and any license contained in Company’s products set forth the entire agreement between Company and you with respect to the Site; provided, however, that: (1) Provider will also be required to enter into the Provider Agreement; (2) Company may enter into additional agreements with you. In the event of a conflict between this Agreement and the Provider Agreement, the terms of the Provider Agreement will govern.
- Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable, such provisions will be modified, or if not possible, severed, to reflect the fullest valid, legal and enforceable expression of the intent of the parties and the remainder of this Agreement will not be affected thereby.
