18. Governing Law.
These Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of Arizona, without regard to any laws that would direct the choice of another state’s laws and, where applicable, by the federal laws of the United States. You irrevocably and unconditionally consent to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal or state courts, as applicable, located in Maricopa County, Arizona, for any dispute or litigation arising out of or relating to these Terms or the use of the Website unless otherwise determined by Sprouts in its sole discretion. You waive any objection to the laying of venue of any such litigation in Arizona courts and agree not to claim that any litigation has been brought in an inconvenient forum. In other words, if you and Sprouts have a dispute, you agree to resolve it in a Maricopa County, Arizona, court unless otherwise determined by Sprouts in its sole discretion. You agree that the Website will be deemed solely located in Arizona and the Website is and will be deemed a passive website that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over Sprouts, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than Arizona.
19. Arbitration Agreement; Class Waiver; Waiver of Trial by Jury.
Please read the following paragraphs carefully because they require you to arbitrate disputes with Sprouts and limit the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
A. Applicability. You agree that any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of, or relating to, these Terms (including the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity of these Terms) (together, “Disputes”) will be resolved by confidential and binding arbitration on an individual basis as described in these Terms (this “Arbitration Agreement”). The place of arbitration will be Maricopa County, Arizona, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by all parties to the arbitration. But, in the event of any actual, alleged, or threatened violation of confidentiality or violation of Sprouts’ intellectual property or other proprietary rights, Sprouts may immediately resort to court proceedings in a court of competent jurisdiction in order to seek immediate injunctive relief without posting bond, proving damages, or meeting any similar requirement. Any institution of any action for injunctive relief will not constitute a waiver of the right or obligation of either party to submit any claim seeking relief other than injunctive relief to arbitration. This Arbitration Agreement applies to you; Sprouts; Sprouts’ affiliates; Sprouts’ and its affiliates’ respective directors, officers, employees, owners, agents, predecessors in interest, successors in interest, and assigns; authorized and unauthorized users or beneficiaries of the Website; and any third-party beneficiaries. This Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce and the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Sections 1-16, will govern the interpretation, enforcement, and proceedings pursuant to this Arbitration Agreement.
B. Arbitrator. Arbitration proceedings will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and in accordance with the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes then in effect except as stated below. A single arbitrator with knowledge of electronic commerce will conduct the arbitration and that arbitrator may grant injunctions or other relief in such dispute or controversy. The parties will mutually agree upon such arbitrator, but if the parties have not agreed on an arbitrator within thirty (30) days of the date of the notice of intention to arbitrate, the AAA will select the arbitrator from its list of commercial arbitrators. The arbitrator will conduct a single hearing no longer than one (1) day in duration for the purpose of receiving evidence and will render a decision within fifteen (15) days after the conclusion of the hearing. The decision of the arbitrator will be final, conclusive and binding on the parties to the arbitration. Judgment may be entered on the arbitrator’s decision in any State or Federal court of competent jurisdiction. The cost of the arbitrator will be shared equally, and all other expenses of arbitration, including attorneys’ fees, will be paid by the party who incurred them. Any arbitration proceeding may not be consolidated or joined with any other proceeding and will not proceed as a class action. You further agree that you will not participate in any way in any class action in connection with any Dispute, either as a class representative plaintiff or as a member of a putative class. The parties understand that they would have had a right or opportunity to litigate Disputes through a court, to have a judge or jury decide their case, and to participate in a class action or other proceeding involving multiple claimants, but they have instead chosen to have all Disputes decided through individual arbitration.
C. Place; Federal Arbitration Act. The place of arbitration will be Maricopa County, Arizona, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by all parties to the arbitration. This Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce and the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Sections 1-16, will govern the interpretation, enforcement, and proceedings pursuant to this Arbitration Agreement.
D. Confidentiality. Any and all actions taken under this Arbitration Agreement, including all filings, orders, judgments, and awards made in any arbitration proceeding, are confidential and may not be disclosed to any third party.
E. Time Limitation on Claims. Arbitration proceedings must be initiated within one (1) year after any Dispute arises; otherwise, the Dispute is permanently barred.
Neither these Terms, nor any rights hereunder, may be assigned by operation of law or otherwise, in whole or in part, by you without the prior written permission of Sprouts. Any purported assignment without such permission will be void. These Terms may be assigned by Sprouts in whole or in part without notice.
21. Third-Party Beneficiaries.
These Terms do not confer any rights, remedies, or benefits upon any person other than you and Sprouts, except that our affiliates are third-party beneficiaries of these Terms.
22. Entire Agreement; Interpretation.
23. Electronic Communications.
These Terms and any other documentation, agreements, notices, or communications between you and Sprouts may be provided to you electronically to the extent permissible by law.
