SECTION 16 – DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

Please read this arbitration provision carefully to understand your rights. Except where prohibited by law, you agree that any claim that you may have in the future must be resolved through final and binding confidential arbitration. You acknowledge and agree that you are waiving the right to a trial by jury. The rights that you would have if you went to court, such as discovery or the right to appeal, may be more limited or may not exist. You agree that you may only bring a claim in an individual capacity and not as a plaintiff (lead or otherwise) or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. You further agree that the arbitrator may not consolidate proceedings or claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) and must follow these terms as a court would.

If you have a complaint, dispute, or controversy, you agree to first contact us at write@storiesinsongs.com to attempt to resolve the dispute or controversy informally. Any controversy or claim arising out of or related to the use of the Website, any product, service, or software, these Terms, the Privacy Statement, or your relationship with us that cannot be resolved through such informal process or through negotiation within one hundred and twenty (120) days shall be resolved by binding, confidential arbitration administered by der Deutschen Schlichtungsstelle, and judgment on the award rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. We agree that any claim we may have against you will also be subject to this arbitration provision, except as provided in Sections 17 and 18 below. The arbitration will be conducted by a single neutral arbitrator in the German language in Dresden, Germany unless we both agree to conduct the arbitration by telephone or written submissions. The arbitrator shall be selected by agreement of the parties or if the parties cannot agree, chosen in accordance with Rules of the Deutsche Schlichtungsstelle. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the provisions of the Deutsche Schlichtungsstelle's Commercial Arbitration Rules and Procedures, in effect at the time of submission of the demand for arbitration. The Deutsche Schlichtungsstelle’s Rules are available at https://www.deutsche-schlichtungsstelle.de/ or by calling 49-0911/810 481-8650. The arbitrator shall have the exclusive and sole authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, construction, validity, applicability, or enforceability of these Terms, the Privacy Statement, this arbitration provision, and any other terms incorporated by reference into these Terms. The arbitrator shall have the exclusive and sole authority to determine whether any dispute is arbitrable. The arbitrator shall have the exclusive and sole authority to determine whether this arbitration agreement can be enforced against a non-signatory to this agreement and whether a non-signatory to this agreement can enforce this provision against you or Stories in Songs - Writing The Lyrics.

Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the Deutsche Schlichtungsstelle’s Rules. In all other respects, the parties shall each pay their own additional fees, costs, and expenses, including, but not limited to, those for any attorneys, experts, documents, and witnesses.

The arbitrator shall follow the substantive law of Germany without regard to its conflicts of laws principles. 

You and Stories in Songs - Writing The Lyrics agree that disputes will only be arbitrated on an individual basis and shall not be consolidated, on a class wide, representative basis, or with any other arbitration(s) or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party.  You and Stories in Songs - Writing The Lyrics expressly waive any right to pursue any class or other representative action against each other.

Failure or any delay in enforcing this arbitration provision in connection with any particular claim will not constitute a waiver of any rights to require arbitration at a later time or in connection with any other claims except that all claims must be brought within 1 year after the claim arises (the 1 year period includes the one hundred and twenty (120) day informal resolution procedures described above).

This arbitration provision sets forth the terms and conditions of our agreement to final and binding confidential arbitration and is governed by and enforceable under German law.  

This provision survives termination of your account or relationship with Stories in Songs - Writing The Lyrics, bankruptcy, assignment, or transfer.  If the class action waiver is deemed unenforceable (i.e., unenforceability would allow arbitration to proceed as a class or representative action), then this entire arbitration provision shall be rendered null and void and shall not apply. If a portion of this arbitration provision (other than the class action waiver) is deemed unenforceable, the remaining portions of this arbitration provision shall remain in full force and effect.

YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU  WOULD HAVE HAD A RIGHT TO LITIGATE THROUGH A COURT, TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE YOUR CASE, AND TO BE PARTY TO A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. HOWEVER, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO HAVE ANY CLAIMS DECIDED INDIVIDUALLY AND ONLY THROUGH BINDING, FINAL, AND CONFIDENTIAL ARBITRATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION.
