Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration.

BY AGREEING TO BINDING ARBITRATION, YOU AND CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY, OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY ALSO BE UNAVAILABLE OR MAY BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION.

ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER PRE-EXISTING, PRESENT OR FUTURE, AND INCLUDING STATUTORY, CONSUMER PROTECTION, COMMON LAW, INTENTIONAL TORT, INJUNCTIVE AND EQUITABLE CLAIMS) BETWEEN YOU AND US ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITES, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION.

YOU AGREE THAT, BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, THE U.S. FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT GOVERNS THE INTERPRETATION AND ENFORCEMENT OF THIS AGREEMENT, AND THAT YOU AND WE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms of Use.

The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules (the "AAA Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this Section. (The AAA Rules are available at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.

The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision, including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or the Agreement is void, voidable or otherwise invalid. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. Any award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.

Each party in an arbitration or small claims procedure will be responsible for their own legal fees.

If permitted by local law, you may elect to pursue your claim in small-claims court rather than arbitration if you provide us with written notice of your intention do so within sixty (60) days of your purchase. The arbitration or small-claims court proceeding will be limited solely to your individual dispute or controversy.

You agree to an arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, NEITHER YOU NOR CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY WILL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER CUSTOMERS IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. The arbitral tribunal may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitral tribunal has no power to consider the enforceability of this class arbitration waiver and any challenge to the class arbitration waiver may only be raised in a court of competent jurisdiction.

Pre-Filing Mediation.  In the event of a dispute, prior to initiating arbitration, the party asserting the claim must first send to the other, by overnight courier, a written Notice of Claim (“Notice”). If You are the claimant, the Notice to Us must be addressed to:  Legal Department, Cards Against Humanity LLC, 1917 N. Elston Ave., Chicago, IL 60642-1219. Legal+Claims@cardsagainsthumanity.com. If We are the claimant, the Notice must be sent to the address We have on file for You in Your Account.  The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought.  Following receipt of the Notice, each party agrees to negotiate with the other in good faith about the claim. If the claim is not resolved to the satisfaction of the claimant within sixty (60) days after Notice is provided, the claimant may pursue the claim in arbitration or file a claim in small claims court, as appropriate.

Settlement Offers:  During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by You or Us shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator.

Initiating A Claim: The form required to initiate an arbitration may be printed or downloaded from www.adr.org.  Alternatively, You may contact the arbitration administrator by calling 1-800-778-7879 or writing to the American Arbitration Association, 150 N. Michigan Ave., Suite 3050, Chicago, Illinois,  60601.

Location of Hearing:  Unless you and we agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in Chicago, Illinois. If your claim is for US$10,000 or less, we agree you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds US$10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.

Class/Private Attorney General Waivers:  YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate the claims of more than one party, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable as applied to any claim asserted by any individual, then the entirety of the arbitration provision set forth herein shall be null and void.

Injunctive Relief Limitation:  The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide the relief warranted by that party’s individual claim.

Small Claims Procedure Alternative:  Notwithstanding the foregoing binding arbitration procedure, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court (provided the claim otherwise qualifies for such a program) as an alternative to proceeding with arbitration.

Opt-Out Provision

You may elect to opt out (exclude yourself) from the final, binding arbitration procedure and the class and private attorney general action waivers specified in these Terms of Use by doing the following. Within 15 days of your first accessing either Website, you must send a letter to us at Cards Against Humanity, LLC, 1917 N. Elston Ave., Chicago, IL 60642-1219, that specifies Your (1) name, (2) IP address(es), (3) mailing address, and (4) request to be excluded from the final, binding arbitration procedure and class/private attorney general action waivers specified in these Terms of Use.  All other Terms of Use shall continue to apply to you, including the requirement to participate in pre-dispute mediation.  You are not required to send the letter by certified mail, return receipt requested or overnight courier, but it is recommended that you do so.  Your request to be excluded will only be effective and enforceable if you can prove the request was postmarked within the applicable 15-day deadline.

Jurisdiction

If any court of competent jurisdiction finds the above arbitration and/or class action waiver provisions invalid or inapplicable, you agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Chicago, Illinois, and the related appellate courts, in any related action or proceeding.  Further, you irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of, and venue in, the state and federal courts in Chicago, Illinois, and the related appellate courts, in any related action or proceeding and agree shall to not raise any claims as to Chicago, Illinois being an inconvenient forum.

Governing Laws

You agree the laws of the United States of America and the laws of the State of Illinois, without regard to any principles of conflicts of laws, will govern these Terms of Use, our Privacy Policy, your use of the Websites, and all matters relating to your access to, and/or use of, the Websites, including all disputes between you and us.  You also agree that: (i) the Websites shall be deemed solely based in Illinois; and (ii) the Websites shall be passive sites that do not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in any jurisdiction other than Illinois.

Waiver and Severability

No waiver by the Company of any term or condition set out in these Terms of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of the Company to assert a right or provision under these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

If any part of these Terms of Use is determined to be invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, including the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations stated elsewhere herein, then the invalid or unenforceable provision(s) will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision, and the remainder of these Terms of Use shall continue in full effect.
