13 | ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES (AS DEFINED BELOW) WITH EQUINOX MEDIA AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
1.1 Informal Dispute Resolution. Our goal is to do our best to ensure that every experience with our business and the Service will exceed your expectations. If that doesn’t happen, we hope you will give us the opportunity to try to address any problem or concern. To do so, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. When contacting us, we ask that you include your name, address, phone number and email address, and a description of your problem or concern and any specific relief you seek.
1.2 Arbitration Agreement. By using the Service, you and Equinox Media agree to submit any and all Disputes (as defined below) to binding arbitration pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act (Title 9 of the United States Code), which shall govern the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration agreement (“Arbitration Agreement”). Arbitration shall be before either (1) JAMS (formerly known as Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services), www.jamsadr.com, or (2) the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), www.adr.org. If you initiate arbitration, you shall have the choice as between these two arbitration forums; if Equinox Media initiates arbitration, it shall have the choice as between these two arbitration forums.
YOU AND EQUINOX MEDIA EACH HEREBY AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THE DEFINITION OF DISPUTES BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, INCLUDING ALL ISSUES RELATING TO THE ENFORCEABILITY, INTERPRETATION, SCOPE, AND APPLICATION OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT (SUCH AS “GATEWAY” ISSUES OF ARBITRABILITY, WHETHER THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT IS UNCONSCIONABLE OR ILLUSORY AND ANY DEFENSE TO ARBITRATION) WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT BY A JUDGE OR JURY, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
1.3 Class Action Waiver. By using the Service, you agree that the arbitration of any Dispute (as defined below) shall be conducted on an individual, not a class-wide basis, and that no such arbitration proceedings may be consolidated with any other arbitration or other legal proceedings involving Equinox Media or any other person. You further agree that you, and anyone asserting a claim through you, will not be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, representative, or consolidated proceeding against Equinox Media. We and you agree that the arbitrator of any Dispute between us may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claim (such as a class action, representative action, consolidated action or private attorney general action). If the foregoing class action waiver (“Class Action Waiver”) or any portion thereof is found to be invalid, illegal, unenforceable, unconscionable, void or voidable, then the Arbitration Agreement will be unenforceable, and the Dispute will be decided by a court. Any claim that all or part of the Class Action Waiver is invalid, illegal, unenforceable, unconscionable, void or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator.
1.4 Definition of Dispute. Except as described in the following paragraph, the term “Dispute” in this Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Equinox Media regarding any aspect of your relationship with Equinox Media, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, negligence, gross negligence or reckless behavior), or any other legal, statutory or equitable theory, whether related to the access to and use of the Service or otherwise, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of these Terms, except for the scope, enforceability and interpretation of the Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver.
However, “Dispute” SHALL NOT include any (1) personal injury claim, claim for lost, stolen or damaged property, or any individual action in small claims court; (2) claim that all or part of the Class Action Waiver is invalid, unenforceable, unconscionable, void or voidable, (3) claim for public injunctive relief, i.e., injunctive relief that has the primary purpose and effect of prohibiting alleged unlawful acts that threaten future injury to the general public and (4) any enforcement action, validity determination or other claim arising from or relating to infringement, misappropriation, theft, piracy or other unauthorized use of intellectual property. Such claims may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator.
1.5 How Will the Arbitration Work? Either you or Equinox Media may initiate arbitration proceedings. The arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator. The arbitration will be an individual arbitration, and shall in no event be commenced as a representative or class arbitration. If you or Equinox Media initiate arbitration, you and we have a choice of doing so before JAMS or the AAA:
For arbitration before JAMS, the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures and the JAMS Recommended Arbitration Discovery Protocols for Domestic, Commercial Cases will apply. The JAMS rules are available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-5267.
Which particular rules apply in AAA arbitration will depend on how much money is at issue. For less than $75,000, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes/Consumer Arbitration Rules will apply; for Disputes involving $75,000 or more, the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879.
If required for the enforceability of the Arbitration Agreement under the Federal Arbitration Act, Equinox Media will pay all arbitrator’s costs and expenses. If not, those costs will be paid as specified in the above-referenced rules.
1.6 Where Will the Arbitration Be Held? You can bring the arbitration in either New York or in the state where you live if there is a JAMS or AAA in that state. In the event that Equinox Media initiates an arbitration, it will only do so in the state where you live before either JAMS or AAA, unless there is no JAMS or AAA in your state, in which case Equinox Media may initiate the arbitration in New York. As set forth in Section 14.1 below, the arbitrator will apply New York law.
2 | GENERAL
2.1 Governing Law. These Terms, as well as your interactions with the Service and with use, will be governed by the laws of the State of New York, without regard to any conflict of law principles. For any Dispute that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court, you and Equinox Media hereby irrevocably consent and submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located within New York City, New York and waive all objections thereto.
2.2 Notice to California Residents. If you are a California resident, under California Civil Code Section 1789.3, you may contact the Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs in writing at 1625 N. Market Blvd., Suite S-202, Sacramento, California 95834, or by telephone at (800) 952-5210 in order to resolve a complaint regarding the Service or to receive further information regarding use of the Service.
2.3 Miscellaneous. These Terms, together with the Additional Terms and any other agreements, policies or documents, referenced in these Terms or otherwise made available to you as part of the Service, constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between you and Equinox Media in connection with the Service. You may not assign or transfer these Terms or your rights under these Terms, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. We may assign or transfer these Terms, or delegate any rights or obligations under these Terms, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise at any time without notice or consent. Our failure to enforce any provision or exercise any right under these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such provision, nor will any written waiver by us of any breach or default of these Terms be a waiver of any subsequent breach or default. Any waiver will be effective only if in writing signed by an authorized representative of Equinox Media. Use of section headers in these Terms is for convenience only and will not have any impact on the interpretation of any provision. If any part of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction, the unenforceable part will be given effect to the greatest extent possible, and the remaining parts will remain in full force and effect.

By using the App you are authorizing Equinox Media to access information associated with your Equinox Membership and to communicate with you about and in regards to your use of the Service. The Service is offered by Equinox Media, and these Terms are between you and Equinox Media, not Equinox. Your use of the Service, including the App, is subject at all times to these Terms.

During the time that your Account is associated with your Equinox Membership, certain portions of these Terms may not apply, or may apply differently, to you, as further described in any additional terms, conditions, policies or rules communicated to you by Equinox Media and/or Equinox. Your access to the Service will be automatically suspended and/or cancelled if your Equinox Membership is cancelled or terminated, or, in Equinox’s sole discretion, if it is frozen, for any reason; or if the terms of your Equinox Membership cease to include access to the Service, complimentary or otherwise; or if the email address on-file for the Service becomes different from the email address associated with your Equinox Membership.

Service Membership Fees are fully earned upon payment and are not subject to any refund, credit or offset, pro-rata or otherwise, upon cancellation. Your Service Membership Fee will be charged to you, using your payment method on-file, each month on your Service Membership Billing Date until you cancel your Service Membership. Your “Service Membership Billing Date” is generally the date you purchase your Service Membership, unless otherwise specifically noted at the time of purchase—for example, if you participate in a free trial where billing starts at a later date specified during checkout. In addition, if your purchase your Service Membership alongside a Bike purchase, your “Service Membership Billing Date” will not be the date of purchase, but instead will be the date you activate the Service by creating and logging into your Account on the Bike. We reserve the right to change the amount of your Service Membership Fee upon at least thirty (30) days’ notice to you. We may also change you Service Membership Billing Date, and will provide you at least thirty (30) days’ notice to you of any permanent change to your Service Membership Billing Date. However, we will not notify you nor be liable if your Service Membership Billing Date occurs on a different day due to circumstances outside our reasonable control, such as bank delays, and we may temporarily adjust your Service Membership Billing Date as a result of such circumstances without notice.

You are required to maintain a payment method on-file in your Account as a condition of having a Service Membership. You are responsible for ensuring that your payment method information remains current, and you can update or change your payment method information at any time by logging into your Account. By updating your payment method on file you are authorizing Equinox Media to continue billing and charge to that payment method your Service Membership Fee, and any other amounts you may owe, on a recurring basis.

Promotional offers are subject to eligibility criteria and additional terms and conditions (including those of applicable third parties), which will be provided to you at the time you sign-up or the offer or in other communications made available to you. We will determine offer eligibility in our sole discretion, and may use information such as device ID, method of payment or contract information to determine offer eligibility. We reserve the right to revoke any offer, and suspend your access to the Service, if we determine you are not or were not eligible for an offer We also reserve the right to, in our sole discretion, modify or terminate any promotional offer, including free trials, at any time, without notice or liability to you.
4.3 Free Trials. Certain promotional offers may involve a free trial where you will receive access to the Service for a specified period of time without payment. Free trial promotions are limited to one (1) offer per household. If your free trial offer does not require you to purchase a Service Membership, your complimentary access to the Service will automatically cease without any further notice or other obligation to you upon expiration of the applicable free trial period. If your free trial offer is in connection with purchasing a Service Membership, you will be required to provide a payment method at the time you sign up for the free trial offer, and you will begin to be billed your Service Membership Fee automatically upon expiration of the free trial period and thereafter on a recurring basis or as long as your Service Membership continues.

You will not receive a notice from us that your free trial is ending or that the paid portion of your service membership has begun. See Section 2 of these Additional Terms for information on cancelling your Service Membership. Additionally, as part of a free trial where you are required to provide a method of payment, you may see a "pending authorization charge" of $1 on your designated payment method statement. This is not an actual charge, and no amount is being collected; this is a temporary authorization hold used to verify that your provided payment method is active and valid for future transactions.
