Arbitration and Class Action Waiver:
Any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to in any way to the mobile text alerts will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. You agree to notify us in writing of the nature of any dispute related to Alaska Communications mobile text alerts at least 45 days before initiating binding arbitration or small claims court action, during which time you and Alaska Communications will attempt to resolve the dispute informally.
BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO MAINTAIN OTHER AVAILABLE RESOLUTION PROCESSES, SUCH AS A COURT ACTION OR ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEEDING, TO SETTLE ANY DISPUTES OR CLAIMS. THE RULES IN ARBITRATION ARE DIFFERENT. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY. ALTHOUGH REVIEW IS LIMITED, AN ARBITRATOR CAN AWARD ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF AS WOULD BE AVAILABLE IN COURT AND MUST ENFORCE THE SAME LIMITATIONS STATED IN THESE CONDITIONS OF USE AS A COURT WOULD.
The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to these Terms and Conditions. You and Alaska Communications agree that the arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules, including the AAA’s supplementary procedures for consumer-related disputes. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. Alaska Communications will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000, unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Alaska Communications agrees not to seek attorney’s fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed upon location. You and Alaska Communications agree that any dispute resolution proceedings of any nature or in any forum will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. This means that you may not purport to act on behalf of a class or any other person. Likewise, an arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial, unless such waiver is unenforceable. This means that any claim would be decided by a judge, not a jury.
You and Alaska Communications agree that this arbitration provision does not apply to either party seeking to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
The Federal Arbitration Act and applicable federal law (or in the absence of applicable federal law, then the laws of the State of Alaska), without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms & Conditions and apply to any disputes or claims against Alaska Communications arising out of or relating in any way to any Alaska Communications text message service.
Limitation of Liability:
Alaska Communications is not responsible and will not be liable for any damages of any nature, including without limitation any incidental, special or consequential damages (such as lost profits or lost business opportunities), punitive damages or attorney’s fees related to use of this service.
Changes to This Agreement:
These Terms and Conditions are subject to change from time to time. We will revise and update these Terms and Conditions if our practices change or to reflect future changes in the law. Your continued use of Alaska Communications services and/or sites following the posting of any changes to this policy constitutes your acceptance of the then-current policy.
