10.3. DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND ARBITRATION
You and Resort and Travel magazine agree to the following dispute resolution process for any legal controversy or legal claim arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service, ResortandTravel.com, any subscription to Resort and Travel magazine or ResortandTravel.com or any other aspect of our relationship ("Subject Legal Claim").
In an attempt to find the quickest and most efficient resolution of our issues, you and Resort and Travel magazine agree to first discuss any issue informally for at least 30 days. To do that, please send your full name and contact information, your concern and your proposed solution by email to us at: customerservice@ResortandTravel.com. If we should need to discuss an issue with you, we will contact you using the email or mailing address on your account.
If we do not reach an agreed upon solution after our discussions for at least 30 days, you and Resort and Travel magazine agree that any Subject Legal Claim that either of us may have must be resolved through binding individual arbitration before the American Arbitration Association using its Consumer Arbitration Rules. There are two limited exceptions to this Dispute Resolution and Arbitration provision: (i) either party may pursue in small claims court any action that is within that jurisdiction, as long as the case proceeds on an individual basis only; (ii) either party may seek to enforce its patents, trademarks, copyrights or trade secrets in an appropriate state or federal court.
To help resolve any issues between us promptly and directly, you and Resort and Travel magazine agree to begin any arbitration within one year after a Subject Legal Claim arises; otherwise, the Subject Legal Claim is waived. You and Resort and Travel magazine also agree to arbitrate in each of our individual capacities only, not as a representative or member of a class, and each of us expressly waives any right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. All arbitration hearings will be held in West Palm Beach, Florida. The parties agree that this Dispute Resolution and Arbitration provision is subject to, and will be governed and enforced under, the Federal Arbitration Act.
You may download a form Notice to initiate arbitration at www.adr.org. If you initiate the arbitration, your arbitration fees will be limited to the filing fee set forth in the AAA's Consumer Rules. It is important that you understand that the arbitrator's decision will be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. If the arbitrator rules against Resort and Travel magazine, in addition to accepting whatever responsibility is ordered by the arbitrator, we think it's fair that Resort and Travel magazine reimburse your reasonable attorneys' fees and costs, regardless of who initiated the arbitration. In addition, if the arbitrator rules in Resort and Travel magazine's favor, it will not seek reimbursement of our attorneys' fees, regardless of who initiated the arbitration.
If any provision of these Terms of Service shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms of Service and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
