20. Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration

The purpose of this Section is to provide a streamlined method for resolution of disputes between us if they arise.  As discussed below in Section 20.e, if we cannot resolve our disputes informally and you are awarded a sum at arbitration greater than Super Shred Bros.’s last settlement offer to you (if any), Super Shred Bros. will pay you 150% of your arbitration award, up to $5000 over and above your arbitration award.

PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.

Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to your satisfaction by logging into our customer support interface with your Super Shred Bros. Account.  In the unlikely event that Super Shred Bros. cannot resolve a concern to your satisfaction (or if Super Shred Bros. cannot resolve a concern it has with you after attempting to do so informally), then you and Super Shred Bros. agree to be bound by the following procedure to resolve any and all disputes between us.  This provision applies to all consumers to the fullest extent allowable by law, but expressly excludes residents of Quebec, Russia, Switzerland and the Member States of the European Union.  By accepting these terms, you and Super Shred Bros. expressly waive the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.  This agreement is intended to be interpreted broadly.  This Section covers any and all disputes between us (“Disputes”), including without limitation:

- 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;

- claims that arose before this Agreement or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);

- claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and

- claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.


The only disputes that are not covered by this Section are the following:

- a claim to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or Super Shred Bros. (or any of Super Shred Bros.’s licensors’) intellectual property rights;

- a claim related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, or unauthorized use;

- In addition, nothing in this Section shall prevent either party from initiating a small claims court action.


References to "Super Shred Bros.," "you," and "us" include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or Software under this or prior Agreements between us.  This arbitration provision evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision.  This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms of Service.

A.    Informal Negotiations/Notice of Dispute.  You and Super Shred Bros. agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute informally for at least 30 days before initiating arbitration.  Such informal negotiations commence upon receipt of written notice from one person to the other (“Notice of Dispute”).  Notices of Dispute must: (a) include the full name and contact information of the complaining party; (b) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (c) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand").  Super Shred Bros. will send its Notice of Dispute to your billing address (if you provided it to us) or to the email address you provided to us.  You will send your Notice of Dispute to: Super Shred Bros., support@supershredbros.com SUBJECT: Legal Department.

B.    Binding Arbitration.  If you and Super Shred Bros. are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations within 30 days after receipt of the Notice of Dispute, either you or Super Shred Bros. may elect to have the Dispute finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration.  Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other.  YOU UNDERSTAND THAT BY THIS PROVISION, YOU AND SUPER SHRED BROS. ARE FOREGOING THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL.  The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (AAA Consumer Rules), both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org.  Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules.  If such costs are determined by the arbitrator to be excessive, or if you send Super Shred Bros. a notice to the Notice of Dispute address above indicating that you are unable to pay the fees required to initiate an arbitration, then Super Shred Bros. will promptly pay all arbitration fees and expenses.  The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online.  The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, and shall provide a statement of reasons if requested by either party.  The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so.  You and Super Shred Bros. may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.

C.    Restrictions.  You and Super Shred Bros. agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between Super Shred Bros. and you individually.  To the full extent permitted by law, (1) no arbitration shall be joined with any other; (2) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class action-basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (3) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons. YOU AND SUPER SHRED BROS. 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 OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Super Shred Bros. agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.  If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.

D.    Location.  If you are a resident of the United States, arbitration will take place at any reasonable location convenient for you.  For residents outside the United States, arbitration shall be initiated in the State of Nevada, United States of America, and you and Super Shred Bros. agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court, in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.

E.    Recovery and Attorneys’ Fees.  If the arbitrator rules in your favor on the merits of any claim you bring against Super Shred Bros. and issues you an award that is greater in monetary value than Super Shred Bros.'s last written settlement offer made before written submissions are made to the arbitrator, then Super Shred Bros. will:

- Pay you 150% of your arbitration award, up to $5,000 over and above your arbitration award; and

- Pay your attorney, if any, the amount of attorneys' fees, and reimburse any expenses (including expert witness fees and costs) that you or your attorney reasonably accrues for investigating, preparing, and pursuing your claim in arbitration ("the attorney premium").


The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees, expenses, and the alternative payment and the attorney premium at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits.

The right to attorneys' fees and expenses discussed above supplements any right to attorneys' fees and expenses you may have under applicable law, although you may not recover duplicative awards of attorneys' fees or costs.  Super Shred Bros. waives any right it may have to seek an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses in connection with any arbitration between us.

F.    Limitation on Arbitrator’s Authority.  The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.

G.    Changes to This Provision.  Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Super Shred Bros. makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Notice Address), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to the Arbitration 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.

In connection with the Beta Test, Super Shred Bros. may provide you, on a temporary basis, a pre-release copy of a game or access to a feature on the Super Shred Bros. site.  You understand and agree that the pre-release copy and all other materials provided to you are confidential or proprietary information of Super Shred Bros..  You agree as a condition of participating in a Beta Test to (i) not copy or reproduce the pre-release copy and confidential or proprietary information, (ii) safeguard the pre-release copy and confidential and proprietary information and prevent unauthorized access to, reproduction of, disclosure of and/or unauthorized use of, the pre-release copy and confidential and proprietary information, and (iii) fully comply with the terms and conditions of the Confidentiality Agreement.

Upon request, you agree to immediately return to Super Shred Bros. all copies of the pre-release copy and confidential or proprietary information Super Shred Bros. provided to you.

As a Tester, you are invited to play beta games for the sole purpose of evaluating the games and identifying errors.  Nothing in these guidelines, or on this site, shall be construed as granting you any rights or privileges of any kind with respect to the beta games or content that you find here.  The beta games are provided for testing on an "as is" and "as available" basis and we make no warranty to you of any kind, express or implied.

When playing some beta games, you may accumulate treasure, experience points, equipment, or other value or status indicators.  This data may be reset at any time during the testing process, and it may be reset when the particular game completes a testing phase.  In this case, all player history and data will be erased and each player will return to novice status.
