FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION

IN NO EVENT WILL Hayti’S TOTAL LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS

Agreement to Arbitrate
You and Hayti agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or
the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services or
Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains
the right: (i) to bring an individual action in small claims court and (ii) to seek injunctive or other
equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement,
misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other
intellectual property rights (the action described in the foregoing clause (ii), an “IP Protection Action”).
The exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any IP Protection Action will be the state and federal courts
located in Wake County of North Carolina and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to
jurisdiction and venue in such courts. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND Hayti ARE EACH
WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY
PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Hayti
otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may
not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph
is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except
as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with
the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes
(the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules
are available at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration
Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for
Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at
http://www.adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_015820) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or
an attorney licensed to practice law and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of
arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the
Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
Arbitration Location and Procedure
Unless you and Hayti otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you
reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis
of the documents that you and Hayti submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the
arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing
will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to
direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the
The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s
decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award.
Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The
arbitrator’s award of damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section
above as to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to
provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be
entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law.
Hayti will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’
fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Changes to Terms or Services” section above, if Hayti changes
this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any
subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice
(including by email to email@example.com) within 30 days of the date such change became
effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that
you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Hayti in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute
Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes
to these Terms).
These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Hayti and you
regarding the Services and Content, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or
written understandings or agreements between Hayti and you regarding the Services and Content. If
for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or
unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other
provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Hayti’s prior
written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be
null. Hayti may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these
Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications provided by Hayti under these Terms, including those regarding
modifications to these Terms, will be given by posting to the Services.
Hayti’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such
right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed
by a duly authorized representative of Hayti. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise
by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies
under these Terms or otherwise.
