SECTION 7: AGREEMENT TO PRE-ARBITRATION NOTIFICATION OF DISPUTE
This Agreement provides for a final, binding arbitration of all claims. FreeOnlineTools and you agree that it would be advantageous to discuss and resolve any disputes in good faith before arbitration proceedings or any other proceedings authorized herein begin. In the event of a dispute, you shall send an email notice summarizing the claim and the request for relief to . If the dispute cannot be resolved in good faith and within sixty (60) days after the initial notice is sent, you may proceed to initiate the arbitration proceeding or any other proceedings authorized herein.
SECTION 8: ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
Any claim, controversy or dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement based on your use of the Site or Software shall be resolved by binding and final arbitration. The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) shall administer the arbitration, under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, the "Rules"). If the parties and/or the arbitrator do not request a hearing, the parties will submit their arguments and evidence to the arbitrator in writing. The arbitrator will then make an award only based on documents that were provided, known as a Desk Arbitration. If any party makes a written request for a hearing within ten (10) days after AAA acknowledges receipt of a claimant's demand for arbitration, or if it is the arbitrator who requests such hearing, the parties shall participate in a telephone hearing. The parties acknowledge that in no event shall either party be required to travel to participate in the arbitration. This arbitration section is subject to the Federal Arbitration Act. Either party may seek enforcement of this section in any court of competent jurisdiction.
The arbitrator shall determine any challenges to the arbitrability of a claim.
The arbitral award shall judicially be enforceable. Any court of competent jurisdiction may, and upon request shall, enter judgment on the arbitral award. Either party may seek enforcement and/or confirmation (i.e., judgment on the award) in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Notwithstanding anything contrary in the Rules, and with the exception of Desk Arbitrations, the Federal Rules of Evidence shall govern the admissibility of evidence in any such arbitral proceeding.
Both you and FreeOnlineTools waive the right to bring any claim covered by this dispute resolution provision as a class, representative, consolidated, collective, or private attorney general action, or to participate in a representative capacity, class, consolidated, collective, or private attorney general action regarding any claim covered by this dispute resolution provision brought by anyone else.
Notwithstanding anything contrary in the Rules, the arbitrator shall not have the authority to hear the arbitration as a class, representative, consolidated, collective, or private attorney general action or to consolidate, join, or otherwise combine the claims of different persons into a single proceeding.
If a proposed class, representative, consolidated, collective, or private attorney general action arbitration is initiated notwithstanding the above prohibition, and it is finally determined by the arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction that the waiver specified herein is not enforceable, then the arbitration proceedings shall be bifurcated as follows, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Rules. (1) The issue of arbitrability shall be determined by the arbitrator pursuant to the applicable rules and substantive law. (2) Assuming the arbitrator concludes that the arbitration may proceed, said arbitration shall be stayed, and the issue of whether to certify any alleged or putative class for a class action (or other representative) proceeding shall be presented to and decided by a court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall not have authority or jurisdiction to decide class certification (or any similar representative action) issues. The decision to certify or not certify a class action (or to otherwise permit the action to proceed on a representative basis) shall be appealable in the judicial proceedings consistent with the rules and law governing the appeals of interlocutory decisions or class certification (or similar) rulings specifically, if appropriate. (3) Once any issues regarding class certification (and/or similar representative requirements) have been finally decided by the court, the arbitrator will have authority to decide the substantive claims on an individual or a class (or other representative) basis, as may be determined and directed by the court.
SECTION 9: OPTING OUT OF ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
You may choose to opt out and exclude yourself from the final, binding arbitration and the class action waiver specified in this Agreement. In order to do so, you must, within 15 days of installing the Software or visiting the Site, send a written notice by email to and include the following information: (i) your full name, (ii) your email address, and (iii) a request to be excluded from the final, binding arbitration and class action waiver specified in this Agreement. All other terms of this Agreement shall continue to be in full force and effect, including the requirement for pre-dispute notification and mediation. We must receive your notice within the applicable 15-day deadline of installing the Software or visiting the Site in order for the notice to be effective.

In addition, any controversies or disputes brought under Section 8 shall be brought in the courts of the state of California.

The failure of FreeOnlineTools to enforce or exercise any right or provision of this Agreement will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision.
