You further agree to waive any objection to such jurisdiction or venue.
(a) Arbitration Agreement
Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the Terms and Conditions shall be finally resolved by binding arbitration following the parties’ best efforts to settle such dispute, claim, question, or disagreement. If a binding arbitration occurs, it shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and its procedures for consumer disputes, except for any rules or procedures permitting class actions or otherwise contradictory to the Terms and Conditions. An arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes, including whether this or any other provision contained in the Terms and Conditions is void or voidable. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction and in accordance with the Governing Law and Jurisdiction clause herein.
The parties understand that absent this Arbitration Agreement provision, they may otherwise have the right to sue in a court of law and may have the right to a trial by jury. While arbitration is intended to be more cost-effective, in some instances, the cost of arbitration may exceed the cost of civil litigation in a court. Moreover, the rules and procedures of arbitration may limit discovery.
(b) Waiver of Class Remedies
The parties agree that any arbitration shall be conducted only in their individual or single entity capacity, and the parties expressly forego the right or option to file or join a class action or other representative action. Should any court or arbitrator determine that the class action waiver set forth in this section is void or otherwise unenforceable or that arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision shall be deemed null and void in its entirety, and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate any dispute.
(c) Exception: Litigation of Small Claims Court Claims
Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, relief may also be sought in a small claims court for disputes or claims within that court’s jurisdiction—subject to the Governing Law and Jurisdiction clause of the Terms and Conditions.
(d) Thirty-Day Right to Opt Out
You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration agreement and class action provisions of this section by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address:
Such notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of the initial use of our Website, or else you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. Any such opt out shall be mutual. We reserve the right to terminate your use of our Website should you opt-out.
These Terms and Conditions may not be modified through oral agreement or statements. Fairbanks and Fairbanks alone have the authority to modify these Terms and Conditions in writing at its sole and absolute discretion.
When you submit contact information to us as part of a request for a quote, you consent to receive telephone calls, emails, text messages, mailers, or other similar communications. In communications arising out of your request for insurance quotes, you agree to these communications even if your phone number is on a “do not call” list.
In the event that any provision contained within these Terms and Conditions is deemed to be ambiguous, invalid, or unenforceable, such finding shall apply only to that provision, and the remaining provisions of the Terms of Conditions remain in full force and effect.
Neither party shall be deemed to have waived, in whole or in part, any of its rights granted herein by its failure to exercise, in whole or in part, any right herein.
The Terms and Conditions and only those Policies or Notices expressly incorporated by reference herein constitute the entire agreement of the parties and supersede any prior or contemporaneous agreements, understandings, warranties, or understandings, whether written or oral, whether express or implied.
At its sole discretion, Fairbanks may amend these Terms and Conditions from time to time. We will post any such material changes to our Website along with a notice indicating that the Terms and Conditions have changed when practicable. However, any amendments to these Terms and Conditions shall be enforceable when posted to the Website, whether separate notice is included or not.
In the event Fairbanks chooses to provide you with notices under or related to these Terms and Conditions, you consent to receive such notices or related communications electronically. You further agree that any such communication as described herein satisfies any legal requirement that the communication must be provided in writing.
