VIII. Governing Law
These Student Terms and any disputes arising under or related to them will be governed by United States federal law and the laws of the State of Washington, without reference to a state’s conflict of law principles.
Please review this Arbitration provision carefully. It provides that any dispute may be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court and the right to have a jury decide a dispute. Under this provision, your rights may be substantially limited in the event of a dispute. You may opt out of this Arbitration provision by following the instructions below.
By accepting these Terms, unless you opt out by following the instructions below, you agree that either you or UV Performing Arts, at UV Performing Arts’s sole discretion, can choose to have any dispute arising out of or relating to these Student Terms, including, without limitation, UV Performing Arts programs, benefits, Activities, these Student Terms, transactions, your UV Performing Arts account(s) or your relationship with UV Performing Arts resolved by confidential, binding arbitration. If arbitration is chosen by any party, neither you nor UV Performing Arts will have the right to litigate that dispute in court or to have a jury trial on that dispute. Pre-arbitration discovery will be permitted only as allowed by the arbitration rules. In addition, you will not have the right to participate as a representative or member of any class of claimants pertaining to any dispute subject to arbitration. The arbitrator's decision will generally be final and binding. Other rights that you would have in court may also not be available in arbitration. It is important that you read the entire Arbitration provision carefully before accepting the terms of this Arbitration provision.
For purposes of this Arbitration provision, “dispute” shall be construed as broadly as possible, and shall include any claim, dispute or controversy (whether in contract, regulatory, tort or otherwise, whether pre-existing, present or future and including constitutional, statutory, common law, intentional tort and equitable claims) arising from or relating to UV Performing Arts programs, benefits, Activities, these Student Terms, transactions, your UV Performing Arts account(s) or your relationship with UV Performing Arts, the actions of yourself, UV Performing Arts, or third parties; or the validity of these Student Terms or this Arbitration provision. It includes disputes brought as counterclaims, cross claims, or third-party claims. A party that has brought a dispute in a court may elect to arbitrate any other dispute that may be raised in that litigation. Disputes brought as part of a class action or other representative basis are subject to arbitration on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. IF YOU DO NOT OPT OUT, THEN YOU WILL HAVE WAIVED YOUR RIGHT TO INITIATE OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT. In this Arbitration provision, the words “we,” “us,” and “our” shall include UV Performing Arts and any assignees of any of UV Performing Arts’s rights, as well as UV Performing Arts’s and its assignees’ respective affiliates, parents, subsidiaries, franchisees, vendors, suppliers, and further assigns.
You have the right to opt out of this Arbitration provision, but you may only do so within thirty (30) days of acceptance of these Student Terms. In order to opt out, you must fill the form here.
You must inform us of your decision to opt out, and sign the notice.
