To begin an arbitration proceeding, you may send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to: DSW Inc., Deputy General Counsel, 810 DSW Drive, Columbus, Ohio 43219. You agree that the arbitration will be conducted by either the American Arbitration Association ('AAA'), adr.org, 1.800.778.7879, or the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services ('JAMS'), jamsadr.com, 1.800.352.5267. You can contact AAA or JAMS to find out more information on how to commence an arbitration proceeding. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's or JAMS' applicable rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000. Likewise, DSW will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration. Unless the arbitrator finds some or all of your claims to be frivolous or to have been brought in bad faith, we will reimburse your reasonable attorney's fees and costs for claims totaling less than $10,000 and agree not to seek attorneys' fees or costs from you. (In determining whether an action is frivolous, the arbitrator may consider whether we have offered full relief to you in relation to your individual claim, including but not limited to a full refund of the sum you paid for items you purchased from us.)
You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the United States in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
We each agree to bring any dispute in arbitration on an individual basis only, and not on a class, consolidated, representative or collective action basis. If this class action waiver is found to be void or unenforceable, the dispute shall be resolved in state or federal court rather than in arbitration. You further agree that you will not be a member of any putative or actual class in a class action brought by anyone else, nor will you seek to become a class representative. In addition, we both agree that we each may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
THIS SECTION LIMITS CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM, THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN AAA OR JAMS RULES, AND THE RIGHT TO CERTAIN REMEDIES AND FORMS OF RELIEF. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU OR DSW WOULD HAVE IN COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.
