If you elect to seek arbitration or file a small claim court action, you must first send to PCBL, by certified mail, a written Notice of your claim ("Notice"). The Notice to Polaroid Store must be addressed to: General Counsel, PCBL Retail Holdings, LLC., 6411 Burleson Road, Austin, TX 78744("Notice Address"). If PCBL initiates arbitration, it will send a written Notice to the email address used for your account. A Notice, whether sent by you or by PCBL, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If PCBL and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or PCBL may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court. You may download or copy a form Notice and a form to initiate arbitration at www.adr.org. Each party will be responsible for its own fees and expenses including arbitration filing fees.
The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement. Unless PCBL and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in Travis County, TX.
If your claim is for US$10,000 or less, we agree that 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 reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
YOU AND PCBL AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and PCBL agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void. 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 relief warranted by that party's individual claim.
