Dispute Resolution

Governing Law

The Terms are governed by the laws of the State of Massachusetts in the United States, without regard to its conflict of laws principles. These laws will apply no matter where in the world you live. If you live outside of the United States, you may be entitled to the protection of the mandatory consumer protection provisions of your local consumer protection law.

Arbitration

You and MainStroll agree that we will first try to resolve any Claim informally by giving informal written notice prior to initiating any formal proceeding (including litigation or other legal proceeding). If we need to contact you, we will do so at the email address associated with your Account. If MainStroll has not been able to resolve the dispute with you informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute or controversy (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms through binding arbitration or (for qualifying claims) in small claims court.

You and MainStroll agree that any dispute or claim arising from or relating to the Terms shall be finally settled by final and binding arbitration, using the English language, administered by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) under the Consumer Arbitration Rules then in effect for the AAA, unless otherwise required by law. You can find their forms at www.adr.org. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement.

You agree that all issues are for the arbitrator to decide. This includes all issues related to the scope, application, interpretation and enforceability of this Agreement and this arbitration provision. The arbitrator shall also decide whether any claim is subject to arbitration.

You also agree to waive the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. These waivers are mutual as between you and MainStroll, and MainStroll waives its right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action against you. This means that neither you nor MainStroll can seek to assert class or representative claims against each other either in court or in arbitration and no relief can be awarded on a class or representative basis. The arbitrator also may not consolidate or join another person’s claim with your claim or issue an order that would achieve the same result. You and MainStroll further agree that if the provisions of this paragraph are found to be unenforceable, then the entire provision compelling arbitration shall be null and void.

Assignment

These Terms are not assignable, transferable or sublicensable by you, but may be assigned by MainStroll without restriction. MainStroll may transfer or assign this Agreement and its rights and obligations without consent.

Entire Agreement

You and MainStroll agree that these Terms, together with the Privacy Policy and any amendments and additional agreements you may enter into with MainStroll is the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of this Agreement.
