Your use of the websites and mobile sites on which this User Agreement resides (collectively, the “Site”) is subject to these Terms & Conditions (the “Agreement”), which we may update from time to time. Please read this agreement carefully before using the Site.

The Site is owned by Route 2 Capital Management, LLC (“we,” “us,” or “R2CP”) and is intended for and applicable only for residents of the United States, age 18 or older. If you are from another jurisdiction or under 18 years of age, you may not use the Site.

By accessing the Site in any way (such as browsing or using the Site and/or information contained on the Site and/or submitting information through the Site), you agree to comply with this and are bound by this Agreement, including but not limited to the following terms: (1) conducting this transaction electronically, (2) disclaimer of warranties, (3) damage and remedy exclusions and limitations, (4) binding arbitration, and (5) choice of South Carolina law. This Agreement constitutes a binding agreement between you and R2CP, and is accepted by you upon your use of the Site or your account. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and R2CP regarding your use of the Site. By using the Site you represent that you are capable of entering into a binding agreement, and that you agree to be bound by this Agreement.

(I) Binding Arbitration, Jury Waiver, Class Waiver

You and R2CP agree that any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the Site, your use of the Site, this Agreement, and/or the Privacy Policy shall be settled by binding arbitration in Greenville, South Carolina, or at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and R2CP, in accordance with the applicable procedural rules set forth in the then prevailing Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS (“JAMS Rules and Procedures”), and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.  The JAMS Rules and Procedures are available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling (800) 352-5267.

The arbitrator(s) shall be selected pursuant to the JAMS Rules and Procedures.

The arbitrator(s) shall apply South Carolina law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law.

If you initiate arbitration against R2CP, you will not be responsible for professional fees for the arbitrator(s)’s services or any other JAMS fees. If R2CP initiates arbitration against you, R2CP will pay for the arbitrator(s)’s services and any other JAMS fees associated with the arbitration.

If any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal (other than that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis), or otherwise conflicts with the rules and procedures established by JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, the portion that is deemed invalid, unenforceable or illegal is that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither claimant nor R2CP shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute.

In addition to the foregoing, and notwithstanding the rules of JAMS, certain procedures will apply depending on the amount in controversy.  For controversies and claims in which the amount in controversy is less than $1,000,000.00 (one million dollars), the following procedures will apply:

  • There will be one (1) arbitrator selected from the panel provided by JAMS, using the JAMS rules for arbitrator selection.
  • The arbitration will occur within 90 days from the date on which the arbitrator is appointed and will last no more than five (5) business days.
  • The arbitrator shall institute discovery consistent with the goals of arbitration.  Discovery and disclosure of information will be conducted under the rules provided by JAMS to achieve the usual goals of arbitration, including cost effective and efficient resolution of disputes between you and R2CP, but in no event shall you or R2CP be entitled to discovery rights greater than provided by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

For controversies and claims in which the amount in controversy is equal to or exceeds $1,000,000.00, the following procedures will apply:

  • There will be three (3) arbitrators selected by the panel provided by JAMS, using the JAMS rules for arbitrator selection.
  • You and R2CP will be entitled to all discovery rights permitted by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
  • You and R2CP will be entitled to appeal any arbitration award to an Appeal Panel under JAMS Optional Arbitration Appeal Procedures.  You and R2CP agree to and request oral argument for any appeal filed under the Optional Arbitration Appeal Procedures.

THE ARBITRATOR(S) HAVE NO AUTHORITY TO AWARD PUNITIVE DAMAGES.  NEITHER YOU NOR R2CP AGREES TO ANY ARBITRATION ON A CLASS BASIS, AND THE ARBITRATOR(S) SHALL HAVE NO AUTHORITY TO PROCEED ON SUCH A BASIS.  YOU AND R2CP MAY ASSERT A CLAIM OR COUNTERCLAIM ONLY IN SUCH PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS PROCEEDING.  NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THE JAMS RULES, THE ARBITRATOR(S) MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF CLASS PROCEEDING.  UNDER THE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES OUTLINED IN THIS SECTION, ARBITRATOR(S) SHALL NOT COMBINE OR CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PARTY’S CLAIMS WITHOUT THE WRITTEN CONSENT OF ALL AFFECTED PARTIES TO AN ARBITRATION PROCEEDING.

 

BY AGREEING TO THE ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES AS SET FORTH HEREIN, YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND LIMITING YOUR RIGHT TO APPEAL AND YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHTS TO OTHER AVAILABLE RESOLUTION PROCESSES, SUCH AS A COURT ACTION.  DO NOT USE THE SITE IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE FOREGOING BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISIONS.
