  11. Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

     

    Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes: Any claim, dispute or controversy (“Claim”) by either you or us against the other arising from, relating to or in any way concerning the Agreement, the Services, or any equipment, products, or software you receive from us (or from any advertising for any such products or services) shall, at the demand of either party, be resolved by confidential binding arbitration.  This agreement to arbitrate also includes claims relating to the enforceability or interpretation of any of these arbitration provisions.  However, we will not demand arbitration pursuant to this Agreement in connection with any individual claim that you properly file and pursue in a small-claims court of your state or municipality, so long as the claim is pending only in that court and the claim is on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis.

     

    This agreement to arbitrate includes all controversies and claims of any kind, regardless of the type of claim or legal theory or remedy (damages, injunctive relief, or declaratory relief).  The disputes subject to this arbitration agreement include not only claims by you, but also made on your behalf or connected with you, such as an employee, representative, agent, predecessor, successor, heir, assignee, or trustee in bankruptcy. Disputes subject to this arbitration agreement include not only claims that relate directly to us, but also to our parent, affiliates, successors, assignees, employees, and agents.  This agreement to arbitrate includes claims asserted as part of a class action, private attorney general or other representative action, it being expressly understood and agreed to that the arbitration of such claims must proceed on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis and the arbitrator may award relief only on an individual (non-class and non-representative) basis.  YOU AND WE AGREE THAT NO CLASS ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE CLAIMS MAY BE PURSUED IN ARBITRATION, NOR MAY SUCH ACTION BE PURSUED IN COURT, IF EITHER YOU OR WE ELECT ARBITRATION, BY ACCEPTING THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, YOU AGREE TO WAIVE THE RIGHT TO INITIATE OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR CONSOLIDATED ARBITRATION IN ANY MATTER ENCOMPASSED BY THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION.

     

    Notice of Dispute: If either party intends to seek arbitration, the party seeking arbitration must first notify the other party of the dispute in writing (“Notice of Dispute”) at least 30 days in advance of initiating arbitration.  Notice should be sent to McAfee, Inc., 5000 Headquarters Drive, Plano, TX 75024, Attention: Legal Department.  The notice must include your name, address, and contact information, the facts giving rise to the dispute, and the relief requested.  The parties will attempt to resolve any dispute through informal negotiation within 60 days from the date of the Notice of Dispute is sent.  After 60 days, either party may commence arbitration.

     

    Administration of Arbitration: If the dispute is not resolved by informal negotiation or in small claims court, any claim, dispute, or controversy will be conducted exclusively by binding arbitration governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), and not state law.  YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE (OR PARTICIPATE IN AS A PARTY OR CLASS MEMBER) ALL DISPUTES IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY.  Instead, all disputes will be resolved on an individual basis before a single, neutral arbitrator and the proceeding shall be confidential.  The arbitrator will be either a lawyer admitted to practice law in his or her jurisdiction and with at least ten (10) years’ experience or a retired or former judge selected in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”).  The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement, and the arbitration shall be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the AAA, as modified by this Agreement (the “Arbitration Rules”).  For more information, see adr.org or call 1-800-778-7879. 

     

    Except with respect to any claims or counterclaims seeking less than $25,000, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned, written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.  All arbitration proceedings shall be conducted in English, and the United States FAA shall apply to the Agreement and the binding arbitration.  The award shall be confidential and only disclosed as is necessary to obtain judgment or as otherwise required by law.

     

    Where authorized by applicable law, the arbitrator’s award may include attorneys’ fees and other expenses.  The arbitration award shall determine the rights and obligations between the named parties only, and only in respect of the claims in arbitration, and shall not have any bearing on the rights and obligations of any other dispute.

     

    Costs: The party initiating the arbitration shall pay the initial filing fee.  If you are an individual consumer and you file the arbitration and an award is rendered in your favor, we will reimburse you for your filing fee.  If there is a hearing, we will pay the fees and costs for the first day of that hearing.  All other fees and costs will be allocated in accordance with the arbitration rules.  However, we will advance or reimburse filing and other fees if you are an individual consumer and the arbitrator rules that you cannot afford to pay them or if you ask us and we determine there is a good reason for doing so.  Each party shall bear the expense of their respective attorneys, experts, and witnesses and other expenses, regardless of who prevails, but a party may recover any or all expenses from another party if the arbitrator, applying applicable law, so determines.

     

    Right to Resort to Provisional Remedies Preserved: Nothing herein shall be deemed to limit or constrain our right to resort to self-help remedies or to comply with legal process, or to obtain provisional remedies such as injunctive relief, attachment, or garnishment by a court having appropriate jurisdiction; provided, however, that you or we may elect to arbitrate any dispute related to such provisional remedies.

     

    Conflicting Terms: In the event of a conflict between the Arbitration Rules and this arbitration agreement, this arbitration agreement shall govern.

     

    If any portion of this arbitration agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable, it shall not invalidate the other provisions of the arbitration agreement; provided, however, that (a) if the prohibition on classwide arbitration is deemed invalid, then this entire arbitration agreement shall be null and void; and (b) if the prohibition on arbitration of representative claims brought in a private attorney general capacity is deemed invalid, then the arbitration agreement shall be null and void as to such claims only.  This arbitration agreement shall survive the termination or cancellation of this Agreement.  In the event of a conflict between this arbitration agreement and any other applicable arbitration provision, this arbitration agreement shall control.

     

    WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL: IF FOR ANY REASON A CLAIM PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN THROUGH ARBITRATION, EACH PARTY AGREES THAT THERE WILL NOT BE A JURY TRIAL.  EACH PARTY UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY DISPUTE THAT IN ANY WAY RELATES TO OR ARISES OUT OF THE AGREEMENT OR FROM ANY EQUIPMENT, PRODUCTS AND SERVICES YOU RECEIVE FROM US (OR FROM ANY ADVERTISING FOR ANY SUCH PRODUCTS OR SERVICES).  IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, THIS PARAGRAPH MAY BE FILED TO SHOW A WRITTEN CONSENT TO A TRIAL BY THE COURT.

     

    Limited Warranties, Commercially Reasonable Effort, and Disclaimer of Other Warranties – We will exercise commercially reasonable efforts to troubleshoot or fix your Personal Computer problem within the scope of the offered Services BUT WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT THE SERVICES WILL SUCCESSFULLY ADDRESS YOUR ISSUE. If we are unable to resolve your Personal Computer problem, you will still be liable for charges for time spent by our Service Agent in an attempt to correct a problem.  IF WE REFER YOU TO A THIRD PARTY, IN THE EVENT WE ARE UNSUCESSFUL IN ADDRESSING YOUR ISSUE, WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY ACTIONS OR OMISSIONS OF THE THIRD PARTY.  THE ABOVE WARRANTIES ARE YOUR EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES. THEY REPLACE ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS, TERMS OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, PERFORMANCE, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED WARRANTY IN THIS SECTION, THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED AS IS.
