BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION PURPOSE
a. Purpose. The term Dispute means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Master Pierce or any of its affiliates regarding this website or any service thereon, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Section 23 (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). Dispute is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced. If you have a Dispute with Master Pierce or any affiliate of Master Pierce or any of its or their officers, directors, employees or agents that cannot be resolved through negotiation within the time frame described in the Notice of Dispute clause below, other than those matters listed in the Exclusions from Arbitration clause, you and the Master Pierce entity or individual that you have a Dispute with agree to seek resolution of the Dispute only through arbitration of that Dispute in accordance with the terms of this Section 23, and not litigate any Dispute in court. Arbitration means that the Dispute will be resolved by a neutral arbitrator instead of in a court by a judge or jury.
b. Exclusions from Arbitration. YOU AND MASTER PIERCE AND ITS AFFILIATES AGREE THAT ANY CLAIM FILED BY YOU OR BY MASTER PIERCE OR ITS AFFILIATE IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT ARE NOT SUBJECT TO THE ARBITRATION TERMS CONTAINED IN THIS SECTION 23.
c. RIGHT TO OPT OUT OF BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER WITHIN 30 DAYS. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THE BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER IN THIS SECTION 23, YOU MUST NOTIFY MASTER PIERCE IN WRITING WITHIN 30 DAYS OF THE DATE THAT YOU ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT. YOUR WRITTEN NOTIFICATION MUST BE MAILED TO MASTER PIERCE ., 10300 W Forest Hill Blvd Wellington Florida 33414 AND MUST INCLUDE: (1) YOUR NAME, (2) YOUR ADDRESS, (3) YOUR ACCOUNT NUMBER, IF YOU HAVE ONE, AND (4) A CLEAR STATEMENT THAT YOU DO NOT WISH TO RESOLVE DISPUTES WITH MASTER PIERCE OR ITS AFFILIATES THROUGH ARBITRATION.

f. Class Action Waiver. ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS, WHETHER IN ARBITRATION OR COURT, WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR AS A NAMED OR UNNAMED MEMBER IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL LEGALACTION, UNLESS BOTH YOU AND THE MASTER PIERCE ENTITY WITH WHICH YOU HAVE A DISPUTE SPECIFICALLY AGREE TO DO SO IN WRITING FOLLOWING INITIATION OF THE ARBITRATION.
g. Initiation of Arbitration Proceeding/Selection of Arbitrator. If you or the Master Pierce entity you have a Dispute with elect to resolve your Dispute through arbitration, the party initiating the arbitration proceeding may initiate it with the American Arbitration Association (AAA), www.adr.org, or JAMS www.jamsadr.com. The terms of this Section 13 govern in the event they conflict with the rules of the arbitration organization selected by the parties.
h. Arbitration Procedures. Because this Site and the service provided to you by Master Pierce concern interstate commerce, the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) governs the arbitrability of all Disputes. However, applicable federal or state law may also apply to the substance of any Disputes. For claims of less than $75,000, the AAAs Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (Supplementary Procedures) shall apply including the schedule of arbitration fees set forth in Section C-8 of the Supplementary Procedures; for claims over $75,000, the AAAs Commercial Arbitration Rules and relevant fee schedules for non-class action proceedings shall apply. The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Further, if your claims do not exceed $75,000 and you provided notice to and negotiated in good faith with the Master Pierce entity you had a Dispute with as described above, if the arbitrator finds that you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys fees and costs as determined by the arbitrator, in addition to any rights to recover the same under controlling state or federal law afforded to the Master Pierce entity you have a Dispute with or you. The arbitrator will make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. Such award will be binding and final, excerpt for any right of appeal provided by the FAA, and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement.
i. Location of Arbitration. You or the Master Pierce entity you have a Dispute with may initiate arbitration in either West Palm Beach County, Florida or the county in which you reside. In the event that you select the county of your residence, the Master Pierce entity you have a Dispute with may transfer the arbitration to West Palm Beach County, Florida in the event that it agrees to pay any additional fees or costs you incur as a result of the change in location as determined by the arbitrator.
j. Severability. If any clause within this Section 23 (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Section 23, and the remainder of this Section 23 will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, this entire Section 23 will be unenforceable, and the Dispute will be decided by a court and you and the Master Pierce entity you have a dispute with each agree to waive in that instance, to the fullest extent allowed by law, any trial by jury.
