6. General Terms

A. Disputes

Except for actual or alleged infringements of Pronto’s intellectual property rights, any other dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the Site will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Terms as a court would.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to Puget Sound Bike Share d/b/a Pronto Cycle Share:

 

Pronto Cycle Share
Attention: Legal Department
1750 Occidental Ave. South
Seattle, WA 98135

The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.

Except for actual or alleged infringements of Pronto’s intellectual property rights, we each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial.

B. Governing Law

These Terms shall be governed by and interpreted according to the laws of the State of Washington, without regard to conflict of laws principles.. Use of the Site is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these Terms, including, without limitation, this section.

C. Equitable Relief

You recognize and acknowledge that a breach by you of any of your obligations under these Terms will cause Pronto irreparable damage, which cannot be readily remedied by monetary damages in an action at law. Accordingly, in the event of any default or breach by you, including any action by you that could cause some loss or dilution of Pronto’s goodwill, reputation, or rights in the Site, Pronto shall be entitled to an immediate injunction in addition to any other remedies available, to stop or prevent such irreparable harm, loss or dilution.

D. Changes to these Terms

Pronto reserves the right to change these Terms at any time. When material changes have been made to these Terms, Pronto will indicate this fact on the Site with a link to the revised version of these Terms and may provide notice to members of the revised Terms via email. Please check these Terms regularly to review the changes. Your continued use of the Site following the effective date of the change indicates your consent to the Terms posted at the time of use.
