19. DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION WAIVER
Please read this carefully. It affects your rights.
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to a customer’s satisfaction by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. This Dispute Resolution and Arbitration; Class Action Waiver provision (“Provision”) facilitates the prompt and efficient resolution of any disputes that may arise between you and us as defined below. Arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution in which persons with a dispute waive their rights to file a lawsuit, to proceed in court and to a jury trial, and instead submit their disputes to a neutral third person (or arbitrator) for a binding decision.
Please read this Provision carefully. It provides that all Disputes between you and us shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court. In the absence of this arbitration agreement, you may otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring claims in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate in or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including, but not limited to, class actions). Except as otherwise provided, entering into this agreement constitutes a waiver of your right to litigate claims and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow this agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorneys’ fees).
For the purpose of this Provision, “us”, “we”, “our” and “Dr. Kyrin Dunston” means Dr. Kyrin Dunston/Midlife Metabolism Institute LLC., and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents. The term “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Dr. Kyrin Dunston regarding any aspect of your relationship with Dr. Kyrin Dunston whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Provision (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). “Dispute” is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced, and shall include any claims against other parties relating to services or products provided or billed to you (such as Dr. Kyrin Dunston’s licensors, suppliers, dealers or third-party vendors) whenever you also assert claims against us in the same proceeding.
WE EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PROVISION.
Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution
For all Disputes, whether pursued in court or arbitration, you must first give Dr. Kyrin Dunston an opportunity to resolve the Dispute. You must commence this process by mailing written notification to Dr. Kyrin Dunston at firstname.lastname@example.org. That written notification must include (1) your name, (2) your address, (3) a written description of your Claim, and (4) a description of the specific relief you seek. If any Dr. Kyrin Dunston does not resolve the Dispute within 45 days after it receives your written notification, you may pursue your Dispute in arbitration.
If this Provision applies and the Dispute is not resolved as provided above (Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution) either you or Dr. Kyrin Dunston may initiate arbitration proceedings. The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), www.adr.org, or JAMS, www.jamsadr.com, will arbitrate all Disputes, and the arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator. The arbitration shall be commenced as an individual arbitration, and shall in no event be commenced as a class arbitration. All issues shall be for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this Provision.
For arbitration before AAA, for Disputes of less than $75,000, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will apply; for Disputes involving $75,000 or more, the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. In either instance, the AAA’s Optional Rules For Emergency Measures Of Protection shall apply. The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. For arbitration before JAMS, the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures and the JAMS Recommended Arbitration Discovery Protocols For Domestic, Commercial Cases will apply. The JAMS rules are available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-5267. This Provision governs in the event it conflicts with the applicable arbitration rules. Under no circumstances will class action procedures or rules apply to the arbitration.
Because this website and these Terms concern interstate commerce, the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the arbitrability of all Disputes. However, the arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and the applicable statute of limitations or condition precedent to suit.
Arbitration Award – The arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available pursuant to applicable law, and will not have the power to award relief to, against or for the benefit of any person who is not a party to the proceeding. The arbitrator will make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. Such award will be final and binding on the parties, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA, and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement.
Location of Arbitration – You or Dr. Kyrin Dunston may initiate arbitration in either Georgia or the federal judicial district that includes your billing address. In the event that you select the federal judicial district that includes your billing address, Dr. Kyrin Dunston may transfer the arbitration to Georgia in the event that it agrees to pay any additional fees or costs you incur as a result of the transfer, as determined by the arbitrator.
Payment of Arbitration Fees and Costs – Dr. Kyrin Dunston will pay all arbitration filing fees and arbitrator’s costs and expenses upon your written request given prior to the commencement of the arbitration. You are responsible for all additional fees and costs that you incur in the arbitration, including, but not limited to, attorneys or expert witnesses. Fees and costs may be awarded as provided pursuant to applicable law. In addition to any rights to recover fees and costs under applicable law, if you provide notice and negotiate in good faith with Dr. Kyrin Dunston as provided in the section above titled “Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution” and the arbitrator concludes that you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs as determined by the arbitrator.
Class Action Waiver

scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, such dispute, claim, or
controversy will be, to the fullest extent permitted by law, determined by
arbitration in Sea Island, GA before one arbitrator.

then in effect. Except as otherwise provided herein, the arbitrator shall apply the
substantive laws of the Federal Judicial Circuit in which Golden Isles Medic Inc’s
principle place of business is located, without regard to its conflict of laws rules.
Within ten (10) calendar days after the arbitration demand is served upon a party,
the parties must jointly select an arbitrator with at least five years’ experience in
that capacity and who has knowledge of and experience with the subject matter
of the dispute. If the parties do not agree on an arbitrator within ten (10) calendar

arbitrator shall have the power to order one party to pay all or any portion of such
fees as part of a well-reasoned decision. The parties agree that the arbitrator
shall have the authority to award attorneys’ fees only to the extent expressly
authorized by statute or contract. The arbitrator shall have no authority to award

permit class arbitration or any claims brought as a plaintiff or class member in

law, neither a party nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or
results of any arbitration without the prior written consent of both parties, unless
to protect or pursue a legal right. If any term or provision of this Section is
invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality, or
unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of this Section or
invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other
jurisdiction. If for any reason a dispute proceeds in court rather than in
arbitration, the parties hereby waive any right to a jury trial. This arbitration
provision shall survive any cancellation or termination of your agreement to
participate in any of our Programs.

rights, power, and authority to agree to these Terms and perform your obligations
hereunder, and nothing contained in this Agreement or in the performance of
such obligations will place you in breach of any other contract or obligation. The
failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein will
not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of this
Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or
eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement will
otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. Any new features,
changes, updates or improvements of the Program shall be subject to this
Agreement unless explicitly stated otherwise in writing. We reserve the right to
change this Agreement from time to time. Any updates to this Agreement shall be
communicated to you. You acknowledge your responsibility to review this
