PLEASE READ CAREFULLY – THIS SECTION CONTAINS A WAIVER OF CERTAIN RIGHTS YOU MAY HAVE. 


YOU AND CASIO ARE AGREEING TO MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION.  THIS MEANS YOU AND WE GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT. YOU AND WE ARE AGREEING TO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.


ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE, OR CONTROVERSY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER PRE-EXISTING, PRESENT, OR FUTURE, AND INCLUDING STATUTORY, CONSUMER PROTECTION, COMMON LAW, INTENTIONAL TORT, INJUNCTIVE AND EQUITABLE CLAIMS) BETWEEN YOU AND US ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR USE OF THE SITE WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION.


Arbitration Process. If you are an individual and the dispute relates to less than $75,000 (USD) amount in controversy, the arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Consumer Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this Section. The AAA Consumer Rules are available at www.adr.org/consumer  or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. If you are either not an individual or the disputes relates to $75,000 (USD) or more in controversy, the arbitration will be administered by AAA in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules then in effect, except as modified by this Section. 


The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.


The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision, including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or the agreement is void, voidable, or otherwise invalid. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. Any award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.


YOU AGREE TO AN ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. IN ANY DISPUTE, NEITHER YOU NOR WE WILL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS OF MULTIPLE PARTIES IN COURT OR ARBITRATION OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. 


Arbitration Costs. For an arbitration administered pursuant to the AAA Consumer Rules, absent a finding that your demand is frivolous, brought for an improper purpose, or malicious as set forth by the standards of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b), we will pay all arbitration filing fees and arbitrator’s fees upon your written request given prior to the commencement of the arbitration. 


For all arbitrations, you are responsible for all additional fees and costs that you incur in the arbitration, including, but not limited to, attorney’s or expert witnesses. Fees and costs may be awarded as provided pursuant to applicable law.


Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may elect to pursue your claim in small claims court rather than arbitration if your claim is within the jurisdiction of the small claims court and you provide us with written notice of your intention to do so before filing. The small claims court proceeding will be limited solely to your individual dispute or controversy.

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Casio, its affiliates, licensors, and service providers, and its and their respective officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, licensors, suppliers, successors, and assigns from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, judgments, awards, losses, costs, expenses, or fees (including reasonable attorney’s fees) arising out of or relating to your violation of these Terms of Use or your use of the Site, including, but not limited to, your Contributions, any use of the Site's content, services, and products other than as expressly authorized in these Terms of Use, or your use of any information obtained from the Site.
