(a) Contact Us First.
 
If you have a question or concern about the Services, please contact us first. Our customer support team will try to answer your question or resolve your concern.
 
(b) Agreement to Arbitrate.
 
In the unlikely event that our customer support team is unable to resolve your concerns, we each hereby agree to resolve any and all disputes or claims under this TOS or with respect to the Services through binding arbitration or in small claims court (to the extent the claim qualifies) instead of in courts of general jurisdiction and only on an individual basis and not as part of any purported class, consolidated or representative proceeding. Arbitration, which is often cheaper, faster and less formal than a lawsuit in court, uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief as a court. Binding arbitration is subject to very limited review. Only the arbitrator appointed pursuant to this Section, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have the authority to resolve any dispute or claim relating to this Section, including, without limitation, the scope, enforceability and arbitrability hereof. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this TOS.
 
(c) Scope of Agreement.
 
This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to:
•all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory;
•all claims that arose before this or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);
•all claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and
•all claims that may arise after the termination of this TOS and/or your use of the Services.
 
(d) No Class Actions.
 
YOU AND EVENTBRITE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, MAY NOT PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTAIVE PROCEEDING ANDMAY ONLY PROVIDE RELIEF IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF WARRANTED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM.
 
(e) Notice of Dispute.
 
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to IHIA must be addressed to the address in Section 15 above (“Notice Address”) and must be sent by certified mail. The Notice to you must be addressed to a mailing, home, or payment address currently on record with IHIA and must be sent by certified mail. If no such physical address exists, such notice may be delivered to your IHIA account email address. The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If IHIA and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or IHIA may commence an arbitration proceeding.
 
(f) Arbitration Proceedings.
 
The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules (and in addition, if the actions giving rise to the dispute or claim relate to your personal or household use of the Services (rather than business use), the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes) (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), and will be administered by the AAA and settled by a single arbitrator. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this TOS. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope and arbitrability of this Section 17. Unless IHIA and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location in the United   States for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, AAA shall determine the location. If your claim is for ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds ten thousand dollars ($10,000), the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. All decisions by the arbitrator shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
 
(g) Costs of Arbitration; Legal Fees.
 
Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator costs and expenses imposed by AAA will be governed by the AAA rules, provided that if (i) you are initiating an arbitration against IHIA, (ii) the value of the relief sought is ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or less, and (iii) you include in the Notice your election to have IHIA pay all filing, administration and arbitrator costs and expenses imposed by AAA, then IHIA will pay such costs and expenses (subject to reimbursement as set forth below). If the circumstances in the preceding sentence apply, but the value of relief sought is more than ten thousand dollars ($10,000) and you demonstrate to the arbitrator that such costs and expenses would be prohibitively more expensive than a court proceeding, then IHIA will pay the amount of any such costs and expenses that the arbitrator determines are necessary to prevent the arbitration from being prohibitively more expensive than a court proceeding (subject to reimbursement as set forth below). In the event that the arbitrator determines that any of the claims you assert in arbitration are frivolous, you agree to reimburse IHIA for all such cost and expenses that IHIA paid and that you would have been obligated to pay under the AAA rules.
 
Just as in any court proceeding, each party will initially bear its own attorneys’ fees and expenses in connection with any arbitration hereunder. Should either party be determined to have substantially prevailed in the arbitration, then upon such party’s request, the arbitrator shall award such prevailing party the reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses that it incurred in connection with the arbitration, provided that to the extent that the dispute or claim relate to your personal or household use of the Services (rather than business use) IHIA will not seek to recover its attorneys’ fees and expenses in an arbitration initiated by you, unless the arbitrator determines that one or more of your claims are frivolous. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the reimbursement of attorneys’ fees and expenses upon request from either party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
 
(h) Future Changes.
 
Notwithstanding any provision in this TOS to the contrary, you and IHIA agree that if IHIA makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Notice Address) IHIA will provide you with written notice of such change to your account email address and you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change to the Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this provision as unmodified by such rejected change.
 
17.3 Waiver; Invalid Provisions.
 
The failure or delay of IHIA to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this TOS shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. No oral waiver, amendment or modification shall be effective under any circumstance whatsoever. If any provision of this TOS is found by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the arbitrator or court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of this TOS shall remain in full force and effect.
 
17.4 Violations.
 
Please report any violations of this TOS by email to admin@ithappensinalabama.com.
 
17.5 Assignment.
 
We may freely assign this TOS, whether to an affiliate or to another entity in connection with a corporate transaction or otherwise. You may not assign your rights or delegate your obligations under this TOS. This TOS will inure to the benefit of and will be binding upon each party’s successors and assigns.
 
17.6 Relationship.
 
No independent contractor, agency, partnership, joint venture, employer-employee or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by this TOS
