15. Legal Disputes
15.1
If you reside in the United States or Canada, You and SI Tickets each agree, except where prohibited by law, that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Sports Illustrated Tickets relating in any way to or arising out of this or previous versions of the Terms Of Use (including this Agreement to Arbitrate, as the term is defined below) or the breach or validity thereof, your use of or access to the Site or Services, or any tickets or related passes sold or purchased through the Site or Services shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules (“Rules”), rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis (together with subsections 15(A)-(F), the “Agreement to Arbitrate”). This Agreement to Arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate.

A. Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief

  1. Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions

    EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW, YOU AND Sports Illustrated Tickets AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, OR REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND SPORTS ILLUSTRATED TICKETS AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR SHALL NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS, AND SHALL NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING.

  2. Non-Individualized Relief

    YOU AND SPORTS ILLUSTRATED TICKETS AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER USERS OR THE GENERAL PUBLIC. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph's limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then subject to your and SI Ticket’s right to appeal the court’s decision, that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court. All other claims will be arbitrated.


B. Arbitration Procedures

Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual; and an arbitrator must also follow the terms of the Terms Of Use, as a court would.

All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except those issues relating to arbitrability, the scope or enforceability of this Agreement to Arbitrate, or the interpretation of Section 1 of this Agreement to Arbitrate ("Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief"), shall be for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide.

The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement to Arbitrate, any part of it, or of the Terms Of Use including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of this Agreement to Arbitrate or the Terms Of Use is void or voidable.

The arbitration will be conducted by the AAA under the Rules, as modified by this Agreement to Arbitrate. The Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The language of the arbitration shall be English. The arbitration will take place in New York, NY.

A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a completed form Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). A Notice to Sports Illustrated Tickets should be sent to Sports Illustrated Tickets, 234 10th Avenue, #20273, New York, NY 10011-9993 Attn: General Counsel. Sports Illustrated Tickets will send any Notice to you to the physical address we have on file associated with your Sports Illustrated Tickets account; it is your responsibility to keep your physical address up to date. All information called for in the Notice must be provided, including a description of the nature and basis of the claims the party is asserting and the relief sought.

If you and Sports Illustrated Tickets are unable to resolve the claims described in the Notice within 30 days after the Notice is sent, you or Sports Illustrated Tickets may initiate arbitration proceedings pursuant to the Rules. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA's website at www.adr.org. In addition to filing this form with the AAA in accordance with its rules and procedures, the party initiating the arbitration must mail a copy of the completed form to the opposing party. You may send a copy to Sports Illustrated Tickets at the following address: Sports Illustrated Tickets, 234 10th Avenue, #20273, New York, NY 10011-9993 In the event Sports Illustrated Tickets initiates arbitration against you, it will send a copy of the completed form to the physical address that you provided and we have on file associated with your SI Tickets account. Any settlement offer made by you or SI Tickets shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator. The arbitration shall be held in the county in which you reside or at another mutually-agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or SI Tickets may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, by remote means, or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and SI Tickets subject to the arbitrator's discretion to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. In cases where an in-person hearing is held, you and/or SI Tickets may attend by telephone, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.

The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Sports Illustrated Tickets users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same SI Tickets user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.


C. Costs of Arbitration

Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the Rules, unless otherwise stated in this Agreement to Arbitrate. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, at your request, Sports Illustrated Tickets will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration. Any request for payment of fees by Sports Illustrated Tickets should be submitted by mail to the AAA along with your Demand for Arbitration and Sports Illustrated Tickets will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to the AAA. If the value of the relief sought is more than $10,000 and you are able to demonstrate that the costs of accessing arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of accessing a court for purposes of pursuing litigation on an individual basis, Sports Illustrated Tickets will pay as much of the filing, administration, and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the costs of accessing arbitration from being prohibitive. If (a) you willfully fail to comply with the Notice of Dispute requirement discussed in subsection 22(B) above, or (b) in the event the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration to be frivolous, you agree to reimburse Sports Illustrated Tickets for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by Sports Illustrated Tickets on your behalf that you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the Rules.

D. Severability

With the exception of any of the provisions in subsection A.1 of this Agreement to Arbitrate (“Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions”), if an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this Agreement to Arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall still apply. If an arbitrator or court decides that subsection A.1 of this Agreement to Arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, then if Sports Illustrated Tickets so elects, the entirety of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall be null and void. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of the provisions in subsection A.2 of this Agreement to Arbitrate (“Non-Individualized Relief”) as to a particular claim for relief, then subject to your and Sports Illustrated Tickets’s right to appeal the court’s decision, that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and litigated in in court. All other claims and disputes subject to arbitration under this Agreement to Arbitrate, including any and all claims for monetary damages of any kind, shall be arbitrated.

F. Reservation Amendments to the Agreement to Arbitrate

Notwithstanding any provision in the Terms Of Use to the contrary, you and Sports Illustrated Tickets agree that if we make any amendment to this Agreement to Arbitrate (other than a change to any notice address or website link provided herein) in the Reservation, that amendment shall not apply to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding between you and Sports Illustrated Tickets prior to the effective date of the change.
