- Pre-Dispute, Mandatory Binding Arbitration, and Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION CAREFULLY TO UNDERSTAND YOUR RIGHTS. YOU AGREE THAT ANY CLAIM THAT YOU MAY HAVE IN THE FUTURE MUST BE RESOLVED THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY. THE RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT, SUCH AS DISCOVERY OR THE RIGHT TO APPEAL, MAY BE MORE LIMITED OR MAY NOT EXIST.
YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY ONLY BRING A CLAIM IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF (LEAD OR OTHERWISE) OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE PROCEEDINGS OR CLAIMS OR OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING.
As an exception to binding arbitration, you and GVW Group both retain the right to pursue, in a small claims court, any claim that is within that court’s jurisdiction and proceeds on an individual (non-class) basis, including overdue account matters within the small claims court’s jurisdiction. GVW Group will not demand arbitration in connection with any individual claim that you properly file and pursue in a small claims court, so long as the claim is pending only in that court. Binding arbitration also does not apply to disputes concerning trade secret misappropriation, patent infringement, copyright infringement or misuse, or trademark infringement or dilution.
Required Pre-Dispute Procedures
You acknowledge and agree that before initiating any Claim (subject to the exceptions above) against GVW Group, you will first give us an opportunity to resolve your problem or dispute. This includes sending a written description of the issue to us, including, but not limited to, information or representations related to the product or service upon which you rely. You may send the written description by U.S. Mail to GVW Group, c/o Great VirtualWorks, Inc., 4100 SW 28th Way, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312, Attn: Legal Department. You agree to negotiate with GVW Group or its designated representative in good faith about your problem or dispute. If for some reason your problem or dispute is not resolved to your satisfaction within 60 days after GVW Group’s receipt of your written dispute, you agree to the dispute resolution provisions below.
You and GVW Group agree to commence any arbitration proceeding within 1 year after the Claim arises (the 1 year period includes the required pre-dispute procedures set forth above) and that any arbitration proceeding commenced after 1 year shall be barred.
For your convenience, the arbitration may be conducted in the federal district where you reside. It may be held by telephone or through written submissions if both you and GVW Group agree.
Organization, Rules and the Arbitrator
You agree that any Claims shall be resolved by submitting the dispute to final and binding confidential arbitration before a single arbitrator who is a retired judge or an experienced attorney with experience in the subject(s) of the Claim. The arbitrator shall be chosen from JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and the arbitration rules of the selected tribunal shall apply, which can be obtained by calling the selected tribunal.
The parties shall share equally the arbitrator fees for an arbitration initiated by either party. The parties shall each pay their own additional fees, costs, and expenses, including, but not limited to, those for any attorneys, experts, documents, and witnesses.
The arbitrator shall follow Florida substantive law and may order any relief if permitted by law. The arbitrator may award any form of individual relief, including injunctions and punitive damages, so long as they are in accordance with applicable law. The arbitrator may award costs or fees to a prevailing party, but only if the law expressly allows it. Nothing herein shall be construed to limit the arbitrator’s ability to award remedies provided by applicable law. Any award rendered shall include a written opinion and shall be final, subject to appeal under the FAA.
This provision survives termination of your account or relationship with GVW Group’s, bankruptcy, assignment or transfer. If the class action waiver is deemed unenforceable (i.e., unenforceability would allow arbitration to proceed as a class or representative action), then this entire arbitration provision shall be rendered null and void and shall not apply. If a portion of this arbitration provision (other than the class action waiver) is deemed unenforceable, the remaining portions of this arbitration provision shall remain in full force and effect.
Failure or any delay in enforcing this arbitration provision in connection with any particular Claims will not constitute a waiver of any rights to require arbitration at a later time or in connection with any other Claims except all Claims must be brought within the 1 year limitation period set forth above. This provision is the entire arbitration agreement between you and GVW Group and shall not be modified except in writing by GVW Group.
GVW Group reserves the right to amend this arbitration provision at any time. Your continued use of any GVW Group Website, purchase of a product or service on or through a GVW Group website, or use or attempted use of a GVW Group product or service, is affirmation of your consent to such changes. Should the changes to this arbitration provision be material, GVW Group will provide you notice and an opportunity to opt-out. Your continued use of any GVW Group site, purchase of a product or service through any site, or use or attempted use of a GVW Group product or service, is affirmation of your consent to such material changes.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OPT-OUT OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE OF PURCHASE, USE, OR ATTEMPTED USE OF A PRODUCT OR SERVICE PURCHASED ON OR THROUGH THIS GVW GROUP WEBSITE (WHICHEVER COMES FIRST) BY WRITING TO GVW GROUP, C/O GREAT VIRTUALWORKS, INC., 4100 SW 28TH WAY, FORT LAUDERDALE, FL 33312 ATTN: LEGAL DEPARTMENT.

- Exclusive Venue for all other Controversies
You agree that any controversy excluded from the dispute resolution procedure and class action waiver provisions in this Agreement (other than an individual action filed in small claims court with jurisdiction) shall be filed only in a court of competent jurisdiction located in Broward County, Florida and each party hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consents and submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts for any such controversy.
- GVW Group Remedies
In order to prevent or limit irreparable injury to GVW Group, in the event of any breach or threatened breach by you of the provisions of this Agreement, GVW Group shall be entitled to seek an injunction or other equitable relief restraining such breach.
