RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES

In the event a dispute arises between you and MFC d/b/a SmartGym, our goal is to provide you with a neutral and cost effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. Accordingly, you and MFC agree that any claim or controversy at law or equity that arises out of this Agreement or our services (“Claims”) shall be resolved in accordance with one of the subsections below or as otherwise mutually agreed upon in writing by the parties. Before resorting to these alternatives, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution and we will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation, as an alternative to litigation. For any Claim (excluding Claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000, you or MFC may elect to resolve the dispute through non-binding mediation, then, if unsuccessful, binding arbitration conducted by telephone, on-line and/or based solely upon written submissions where no in-person appearance is required. In such cases, the arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association or JAMS in accordance with their applicable rules, or any other established ADR provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The binding arbitration shall be conducted in Maricopa County, Arizona, or another location mutually agreed upon by the parties. Should either party file an action contrary to this Section, the other party may recover attorneys’ fees and costs up to $3,000, provided that the party seeking the award has notified the other party in writing of the improperly filed Claim, and the other party has failed to withdraw the Claim. You agree that this Agreement and all incorporated agreements may be automatically assigned by MFC in our sole discretion.

OTHER

These Terms and Conditions of Use shall be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Arizona and the federal laws of the United States of America. Users agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state or federal courts located within the State of Arizona for any disputes arising from or related to the Services or these Terms and Conditions of Use. These Terms and Conditions are not intended to alter the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with MFC or its affiliates, parents, service providers or business associates to the extent that those agreements govern issues other than your use of the Services. Should any provision in these Terms and Conditions of Use be found invalid or unenforceable for any reason, that provision shall be deemed severable from the terms and shall not affect validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions. These Terms and Conditions of Use may not be altered by action, inaction or course of dealing between the parties. These Terms and Conditions of Use may only be altered by (a) prior written mutual agreement between MFC and User; or (b) MFC posting revisions on the Services.
