- Alternative Dispute Resolution. We hope to never have a dispute with you. In the unlikely event of a dispute with respect to this Program or its validity or enforceability or any other dispute, action or controversy between us that relates to this Program, whether in contract, warranty, tort, statute, regulation, ordinance or any other legal or equitable basis (a “Dispute”), you and we agree that such Dispute shall be resolved according to these alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) provisions.
14.1 Trial by Jury and Class Action Waiver. By participating in the Program you understand and agree that except as provided herein, you have waived your right to have your Dispute with us resolved by either a jury or bench trial. We have waived our right to a jury or bench trial as well. You also understand and agree that you have waived your right to participate in any litigation related to your Dispute on a class basis or as a class member.
14.2 Fundamental Fairness. Sleep Number supports the proposition that all parties to a Dispute that is subject to these ADR provisions are entitled to a fundamentally fair process and hearing. Toward that end, Sleep Number intends these ADR provisions to fully support the Consumer Due Process Protocol as published by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). Each party shall be given adequate notice of hearings and an opportunity to be heard and to present relevant evidence.
14.3 ADR Administrator and Rules. Unless we both otherwise agree in writing, any mediation or arbitration under these ADR provisions of this agreement shall be administered by and pursuant to the non-binding mediation or binding arbitration rules of the AAA concerning consumer-related disputes in effect at the time a case is filed. Information on these rules can be found on the AAA website ( www.adr.org).
14.4 ADR Process. Except in the case of a Small Claim, as defined below, you agree that any and all Disputes between us shall be submitted first to non-binding mediation. If the Dispute is not resolved through mediation, you may then submit the Dispute for binding arbitration. Further information on the ADR process may found on the AAA website ( www.adr.org).
14.5 Restrictions on Arbitration. Disputes shall be arbitrated on an individual basis. You have no right to or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class action basis or in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or other persons or entities similarly situated. The arbitrator’s authority to resolve disputes and to make awards is limited to Disputes between you and us alone. Furthermore, disputes brought by either you or us against the other may not be joined or consolidated in arbitration with disputes brought by or against any third party unless agreed to in writing by all parties. No arbitration award or decision on any Dispute shall be given preclusive effect as to issues or claims in any dispute with anyone who is not a party to the arbitration. Should any portion of this paragraph be stricken from this agreement or deemed otherwise unenforceable, then this entire ADR section shall be stricken.
14.6 Small Claims. If your Dispute is for damages of less than the jurisdictional limit for claims made in small claims court where you live (a “Small Claim”), you may elect to file your Small Claim on a non-class/non-consolidated/non-representative basis in such small claims court instead of submitting your Small Claim to the AAA for mediation or arbitration as required by this agreement. If your Small Claim is unsuccessful in small claims court and you wish to further pursue your Small Claim, you agree to submit Your Small Claim to the AAA as a Dispute for binding arbitration but not mediation under this agreement.
14.7 Costs and Fees Imposed by AAA: You may be required to pay a filing fee when you file your Dispute with the AAA. Generally speaking, there is no fee to file a request to mediate with the AAA. There is generally a filing fee required to file an arbitration request. You should contact the AAA to determine what the filing fee is. The AAA also charges certain administrative costs and expenses related to a mediation or arbitration. For example, the mediators or arbitrators selected by the parties will need to be paid for their time and related travel expenses (if any). Except in cases where the mediator or arbitrator determines that your Dispute is baseless, frivolous or was filed with the principal purpose of being vexatious or to annoy, we will be responsible for paying all other fees or expenses related to the mediation or arbitration as imposed by the AAA above and beyond the filing fees imposed on you by the AAA. You are responsible for paying your own attorney’s fees if you choose to be represented by an attorney.
14.8 Right to Representation. During the ADR process (either mediation or arbitration) you have the right, at your own expense, to be represented by an attorney. The choice of whether to retain an attorney and the costs and expenses of such attorney are entirely yours.
14.9 Initiating the Dispute Resolution Process. Please contact your local small claims court clerk for instructions on submitting your Small Claim to the small claims court. To submit your Dispute to mediation (initial claims) or arbitration (appeals), please contact the AAA.
14.10 Selection of Neutrals. Any mediation or arbitration filed with the AAA will be heard by an independent and neutral third party (a “Neutral”). As part of the ADR process, all parties are entitled to a Neutral who is independent and impartial. Toward that end and pursuant to the AAA rules for the selection of a Neutral, each party will be provided with a list of available Neutrals by the AAA. Each party will be entitled to strike those Neutrals the party deems unacceptable. The parties shall then rank the Neutrals remaining on their list. The AAA will select the Neutral from the names remaining on the list starting with the highest mutually ranked Neutral.
14.11 Location of Mediation or Arbitration. In the case of face-to-face proceedings, such proceedings will be conducted at a locale that is reasonably convenient to each party with due consideration of each party’s ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination will be made by the Neutral.
14.12 Nature of Hearing. In some cases, the Neutral may find it more expeditious and/or less costly to render an opinion based on written submissions only (no hearing) or based on a hearing conducted telephonically. The Neutral shall always have discretionary authority as to whether to require a face-to-face hearing at the request of either party.
14.13 Remedies and Awards. The Neutral shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court or in equity. In the case of arbitration, the decision of the Neutral and any award granted to either party shall be final and binding but subject to review in accordance with applicable statutes governing arbitration awards. In making the award, the Neutral should apply any identified, pertinent contract terms, statutes and legal precedents. The Neutral shall also provide a brief written explanation of the basis for any award at the time it is made.
