DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION WAIVER (“DISPUTE PROVISION”) 


Please read this Dispute Provision carefully. It affects your rights. Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to a customer’s satisfaction by contacting us at info@cannabismd.com. This Dispute Provision facilitates the prompt and efficient resolution of any disputes that may arise between you and CannabisMD. Arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution in which persons with a dispute waive their rights to file a lawsuit, to proceed in court and to a jury trial, and instead submit their disputes to a neutral third person (or arbitrator) for a binding decision. You have the right to opt-out of this Dispute Provision (as explained below), which means you would retain your right to litigate your disputes in a court, either before a judge or jury. It provides that all Disputes between you and CannabisMD will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court. In the absence of this arbitration agreement, you may otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring claims in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate in or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including, but not limited to, class actions). Except as otherwise provided, entering into this agreement constitutes a waiver of your right to litigate claims and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow this agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney’s fees). For the purpose of this Dispute Provision, “CannabisMD” means CannabisMD and its parents, subsidiary, and affiliate companies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents. The term “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and CannabisMD regarding any aspect of your relationship with CannabisMD, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Dispute Provision (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). “Dispute” is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced, and will include any claims against other parties relating to services provided or billed to you (such as CannabisMD’ licensors, suppliers, dealers or third party vendors) whenever you also assert claims against us in the same proceeding.


WE EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS DISPUTE PROVISION.


Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution. For all Disputes, whether pursued in court or arbitration, you must first give CannabisMD an opportunity to resolve the Dispute. You must commence this process by mailing written notification to info@cannabismd.com. That written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, (3) a written description of your Claim, and (4) a description of the specific relief you seek. If CannabisMD does not resolve the Dispute within 60 days after it receives your written notification, you may pursue your Dispute in arbitration. You may pursue your Dispute in a court only under the circumstances described below.


Exclusions from Arbitration; Right to Opt Out. Notwithstanding the above, you or CannabisMD may choose to pursue a Dispute in court and not by arbitration if (a) the Dispute qualifies, it may be initiated in small claims court; or (b) YOU OPT-OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT YOU FIRST CONSENT TO THIS AGREEMENT (the “Opt-Out Deadline”). You may opt out of this Dispute Provision by written notification to CannabisMD via email to, info@cannabismd.com. Your written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, and (3) a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with CannabisMD through arbitration. Your decision to opt-out of this Dispute Provision will have no adverse effect on your relationship with CannabisMD. Any opt-out request received after the Opt-Out Deadline will not be valid and you must pursue your Dispute in arbitration or small claims court. 


Arbitration Procedures. If this Dispute Provision applies and the Dispute is not resolved as provided above (Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution) either you or CannabisMD may initiate arbitration proceedings. The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), www.adr.org, or JAMS, www.jamsadr.com, will arbitrate all Disputes, and the arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator. The arbitration will be commenced as an individual arbitration, and will in no event be commenced as a class arbitration. All issues will be for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this Dispute Provision. For arbitration before the AAA, for Disputes of less than $75,000, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will apply; for Disputes involving $75,000 or more, the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. In either instance, the AAA’s Optional Rules For Emergency Measures Of Protection will apply. The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778- 7879. For arbitration before JAMS, the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures and the JAMS Recommended Arbitration Discovery Protocols For Domestic, Commercial Cases will apply. The JAMS rules are available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-5267. This Dispute Provision governs in the event it conflicts with the applicable arbitration rules. Under no circumstances will class action procedures or rules apply to the arbitration. Because the Site and these Terms concern interstate commerce, the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the arbitration of all Disputes. However, the arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and the applicable statute of limitations or condition precedent to suit.


Arbitration Award. The arbitrator will award on an individual basis any relief that would be available pursuant to applicable law, and will not have the power to award relief to, against or for the benefit of any person who is not a party to the proceeding. The arbitrator will make any award in writing, but does not need to provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. Such award will be final and binding on the parties, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA, and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement.


Location of Arbitration. You or CannabisMD may only initiate arbitration in Washington, District of Columbia.


Payment of Arbitration Fees and Costs. You are responsible for all additional fees and costs that you incur in the arbitration, including, but not limited to, attorneys or expert witnesses. Fees and costs will be awarded as provided pursuant to applicable law. In addition to any rights to recover fees and costs under applicable law, if you provide notice and negotiate in good faith with CannabisMD as provided in the section above titled “Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution” and the arbitrator concludes that you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs as determined by the arbitrator.


Class Action Waiver. Except as otherwise provided in this Dispute Provision, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, consolidated action or private attorney general action) unless both you and CannabisMD specifically agree to do so following initiation of the arbitration. If you choose to pursue your Dispute in court by opting out of the Arbitration Provision, as specified above, this Class Action Waiver will not apply to you. Neither you, nor any other user of the Site, Services, and/or Materials can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, consolidated, or representative proceeding without having complied with the opt-out requirements above.


Jury Waiver. You understand and agree that by entering into this Agreement you and CannabisMD are each waiving the right to a jury trial or a trial before a judge in a public court. In the absence of this Dispute Provision, you and CannabisMD might otherwise have had a right or opportunity to bring Disputes in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including class actions). Except as otherwise provided below, those rights are waived. Other rights that you would have if you went to court, such as the right to appeal and to certain types of discovery, may be more limited or may also be waived.


Severability. If any clause within this Dispute Provision (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Dispute Provision, and the remainder of this Provision will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, this entire Dispute Provision will be unenforceable and the Dispute will be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction.


Continuation. This Dispute Provision will survive the termination of your service with CannabisMD or its affiliates. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if CannabisMD makes any change to this Dispute Provision (other than a change to the Notice Address), you may reject any such change and require CannabisMD to adhere to the language in the applicable Dispute Provision in effect at the time a Dispute between us arises.


TERMINATION 


CannabisMD may discontinue, suspend, or terminate your access to the Site, Services, and/or your account, without notice or liability for any violation of these Terms or for any other use of the Site, Services, and/or Materials that CannabisMD, at its sole discretion, deems improper. CannabisMD may also discontinue offering the Site, Services, or may modify any portion of the Site, Services, and/or Materials at any time with or without notice to you.


VIOLATION OF THE TERMS 


CannabisMD prefers to advise you if we feel you are not complying with these Terms and to recommend any necessary corrective action. However, certain violations of these Terms, as determined by CannabisMD, may result in immediate termination of your access to the Site, Services, and/or Materials without prior notice to you. The FAA, and applicable U.S. federal law, without regard to the choice or conflicts of law provisions, will govern these Terms. Foreign laws do not apply. The United Nations on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and any laws based on the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (UCITA) will not apply to this Agreement. Except for Disputes subject to mandatory arbitration as described above, any disputes relating to these Terms or the Site will be heard in the courts located in Washington, District of Columbia. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which will remain in full force and effect. CannabisMD’ failure to enforce any term of these Terms will not be deemed as a waiver of such term or otherwise affect CannabisMD’ ability to enforce such term at any point in the future. These Terms are the entire agreement between you and CannabisMD and supersede all prior or contemporaneous negotiations, discussions, or agreements between you and CannabisMD about the Site. The proprietary rights, disclaimer of warranties, representations made by you, indemnities, limitations of liability and general provisions will survive any termination of these Terms.
