    • Mandatory Binding Individual Arbitration. Except as expressly provided below, Behind the Work and I (each a “party” or, together, “us,” “we” or “parties”) agree that any dispute, claim, case, or controversy (whether based in tort, contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, equity or any other legal theory) between us (whether arising out of or relating to past, present or future acts or omissions) (“Claims”) shall be exclusively resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis, rather than in court (“Arbitration Agreement”).
    • Waiver of Class Actions. We each agree that we will assert Claims in arbitration only in our individual capacity, and not as a representative or member of any purported class. We each agree that we will not participate in any class, mass, collective, consolidated, private attorney general or other representative arbitration proceeding. Each party agrees that the arbitrator has no authority to arbitrate Claims on a class-wide basis and shall not consolidate, combine, or jointly arbitrate Claims of more than one person in a single arbitration.
    • Waiver of Jury Trial. We waive our constitutional and statutory rights to go to court and have a trial in front of a judge or a jury, electing instead to resolve by binding arbitration all Claims.
    • Arbitration Procedures. Either party may initiate an arbitration proceeding, which will be conducted by a single neutral arbitrator.
      • Arbitration Providers. Each party has a choice of initiating arbitration before either the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or JAMS, which are both established alternative dispute resolution providers (“ADR Providers”). If neither AAA nor JAMS is available to arbitrate, we will agree to select an alternative ADR Provider to administer the arbitration in this Arbitration Agreement.
      • Arbitration Rules. The arbitration will be conducted under the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules (available at or by calling AAA at (800) 778-7879) or JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (available at or by calling JAMS at (800) 352-5267) (“Arbitration Rules”). The rules of the ADR Provider will govern all aspects of the arbitration, except to the extent such rules conflict with this Arbitration Agreement.
      • Fees. Payment of all filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the Arbitration Rules.

  19. Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect and the invalid or unenforceable provision shall be replaced by a valid or enforceable provision.
  20. Headings. The numbering and captions of the various sections are solely for convenience and reference and shall not affect the scope, meaning, intent or interpretation of the provisions of this Agreement nor shall such headings otherwise be given any legal effect.
  21. Integration. This Agreement comprises the entire understanding of the parties hereto on the subject matter herein contained, and supersedes and merges all prior and contemporaneous agreements, understandings and discussions between the parties relating to the subject matter of this Agreement.
  22. Other.

I agree that Behind the Work’s failure to exercise or enforce a legal right, remedy or benefit which is contained in the Agreement or any applicable law does not constitute waiver of its right to do so later.

I have read, understand and voluntarily agree to all of the terms and conditions of this use agreement.
