Unless you decide on any litigation related to: (1) your intellectual property (such as trademarks, business information, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights and patents); or (2) in violation of provisions 6, 8 or 14 of the aforementioned “unacceptable behaviour” clause, you agree: that any dispute between you and CARA (whether a third party or not) concerning your relationship with CARA, including disputes related to these terms of use, your use of services and/or privacy and/or advertising rights, will be resolved through an individual and mandatory arbitration procedure in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association for the reconciliation of consumer disputes, and you and CARA expressly waive legal proceedings. You can also apply your claim to your local jurisdiction for “small claims” as long as it is allowed by the Rules of the Small Claims Tribunal. You can only make claims on your behalf. Neither you nor CARA will participate in a class-wide class action or arbitration proceeding for claims covered by this agreement. They also agree not to participate in claims filed with a public prosecutor`s office or private representation or in consolidated claims concerning another person`s account when CARA is involved in the proceedings. This dispute resolution provision is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. In the event that the American Arbitration Association is not or is not able to have a hearing within one hundred and sixty (160) days after filing the case, then cara or you may choose to have the arbitration procedure rather than through the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services. The judgment on the arbitrator`s award of arbitration may be submitted to any competent court. Notwithstanding the provisions of the applicable law, the arbitrator is not entitled to award damages, remedies or arbitration awards that conflict with these Terms of Use. You can opt out of this conciliation agreement. If you do it correctly, neither you nor CARA can require the other person to participate in an arbitration procedure. To opt out, you must notify CARA in writing within 30 days of the date you are first subject to this provision.

You must use this address to opt out: you must provide your name and home address, the email address and username you use for your AFV website account, as well as a clear statement that you want to opt out of this arbitration agreement. If the prohibition on class actions and other third-party actions, as mentioned above, proves unenforceable, the entire previous language is not applicable in this section of arbitration. This arbitration agreement will survive the end of your relationship with the AFV. These terms of use apply on October 14, 2007. We expressly reserve the right to change these terms of use from time to time without notice. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to check this website and these Terms of Use from time to time and to familiarize yourself with any changes.
