Dispute Resolution

IN THE EVENT OF ANY CLAIM OR DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND WINETRADERSUSA.COM RELATED TO YOUR USE OF THIS WEBSITE, YOUR PURCHASE OF ANY GOODS OR SERVICES FROM WINETRADERSUSA.COM, OR ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR STATEMENTS BY WINETRADERSUSA.COM TO YOU, WHETHER SUCH CLAIM ARISES OUT OF STATUTE, CONTRACT OR TORT, THE CLAIM OR DISPUTE SHALL BE SUBMITTED TO BINDING ARBITRATION UPON THE REQUEST OF EITHER PARTY UPON THE SERVICE OF THAT REQUEST ON THE OTHER PARTY. FURTHER, ALL SUCH CLAIMS MAY BE BROUGHT ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS ONLY, AND NOT BY WAY OF CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. SUCH DISPUTES INCLUDE WITHOUT LIMITATION DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO INTERPRETATION OR APPLICATION OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION, INCLUDING THE ENFORCEABILITY, REVOCABILITY OR VALIDITY OF THE ARBITRATION PROVISION OR ANY PORTION OF THE ARBITRATION PROVISION.

The parties shall agree on a single Arbitrator to resolve the dispute. The matter may be arbitrated either by the Judicial Arbitration Mediation Service or American Arbitration Association as selected by the party filing the claim. The arbitration shall be conducted in New Jersey or in the same city as the U.S. District Court closest to your billing address at the option of the party requesting arbitration. Any decision of the arbitrator shall be final and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. Unless the law requires otherwise, you and WINETRADERSUSA.COM will equally share in the cost of arbitration and each party shall bear its own attorneys’ fees and costs.

This Arbitration Provision is intended to apply to the resolution of disputes that otherwise would be resolved in a court of law or before a forum other than arbitration and constitutes a waiver of your right to have your dispute resolved by a jury or in any other forum. If you do not want to be subject to this Arbitration Provision, you may opt out of this Arbitration Provision by notifying WINETRADERSUSA.COM in writing of your desire to opt out of this Arbitration Provision within thirty (30) days of the date of your agreement to WINETRADERSUSA.COM’s Terms of Service, including this Arbitration Provision.

This Arbitration Provision is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (the ’FAA’) and evidences a transaction involving commerce. If any portion of this Arbitration Provision, or the rules of the Judicial Arbitration Mediation Service or American Arbitration Association, are determined by the Arbitrator or by any court of competent jurisdiction to be unlawful, invalid or unenforceable, such portions shall be severed or modified so that this Arbitration Provision may be enforced to the greatest extent permissible under the law.
