The Request must include: (1) the name, telephone number, mailing address, e‐mail address of the party seeking arbitration and the account username (if applicable) as well as the email address associated with any applicable account; (2) a statement of the legal claims being asserted and the factual bases of those claims; (3) a description of the remedy sought and an accurate, good‐faith calculation of the amount in controversy in United States Dollars; (4) a statement certifying completion of the Informal Dispute Resolution process as described in subsection (e) below; and (5) evidence that the requesting party has paid any necessary filing fees in connection with such arbitration.
c. Small Claims Option. As an alternative to arbitration, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court in your county of your business’ principal place of business, so long as the Dispute meets all the jurisdictional qualifications and provided that the matter remains in small claims court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis.
d. Exceptions to Arbitration. You and Slice agree that Disputes based on the following claims are exceptions to the Arbitration Agreement and will be brought in a judicial proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction: (i) any claim related to actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of party’s Intellectual Property Rights; or (ii) any claim seeking emergency injunctive relief or other provisional remedies.
e. Notice of Dispute and Informal Dispute Resolution. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first notify the other party in writing at least 30 days prior to initiating the arbitration (“Notice”). Notice to Slice should be sent either by mail to Slice, 1942 NE 148 ST, Suite MVD 2657, North Miami, FL, 33181, Attn: Legal Department; or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Notice to you will be sent to your email address and/or street address that Slice has on file or associated with your Slice account profile. It is your responsibility to keep your contact information up to date. The Notice must describe the nature and basis of the claim(s) and the relief being sought. As soon as possible after receiving the Notice, we will personally meet and confer telephonically or via videoconference, in a good faith effort to resolve informally any Dispute covered by this Arbitration Agreement (“Informal Dispute Resolution Conference”). If we are unable to resolve the Dispute within 30 days of receipt of the Notice, either party may proceed to file a claim for arbitration with the AAA. The Informal Dispute Resolution Conference shall be individualized such that a separate conference must be held each time either party initiates a Dispute, even if the same law firm or group of law firms represents multiple users in similar cases, unless all parties agree; multiple individuals initiating a Dispute cannot participate in the same Informal Dispute Resolution Conference unless all parties agree. In the time between a party receiving the Notice and the Informal Dispute Resolution Conference, nothing in this Arbitration Agreement shall prohibit the parties from engaging in informal communications to resolve the initiating party’s Dispute. Engaging in the Informal Dispute Resolution Conference is a condition precedent and requirement that must be fulfilled before commencing arbitration. The statute of limitations and any filing fee deadlines shall be tolled while the parties engage in the Informal Dispute Resolution Conference process required by this section.
f. Batch Arbitration. To increase the efficiency of administration and resolution of arbitrations, you and Slice agree that in the event that there are one hundred (100) or more individual Requests of a substantially similar nature filed against Slice by or with the assistance of the same law firm, group of law firms, or organizations, within a thirty (30) day period (or as soon as possible thereafter), the AAA shall (1) administer the arbitration demands in batches of 100 Requests per batch (plus, to the extent there are less than 100 Requests left over after the batching described above, a final batch consisting of the remaining Requests); (2) appoint one arbitrator for each batch; and (3) provide for the resolution of each batch as a single consolidated arbitration with one set of filing and administrative fees due per side per batch, one procedural calendar, one hearing (if any) in a place to be determined by the arbitrator, and one final award (“Batch Arbitration”). All parties agree that Requests are of a “substantially similar nature” if they arise out of or relate to the same event or factual scenario and raise the same or similar legal issues and seek the same or similar relief. To the extent the parties disagree on the application of the Batch Arbitration process, the disagreeing party shall advise the AAA, and the AAA shall appoint a sole standing arbitrator to determine the applicability of the Batch Arbitration process (“Administrative Arbitrator”). In an effort to expedite resolution of any such dispute by the Administrative Arbitrator, the parties agree that the Administrative Arbitrator may set forth such procedures as are necessary to resolve any disputes promptly. You and Slice agree to cooperate in good faith with the AAA to implement the Batch Arbitration process including the payment of single filing and administrative fees for batches of Requests, as well as any steps to minimize the time and costs of arbitration, which may include: (1) the appointment of a discovery special master to assist the arbitrator in the resolution of discovery disputes; and (2) the adoption of an expedited calendar of the arbitration proceedings. This Batch Arbitration provision shall in no way be interpreted as authorizing a class, collective and/or mass arbitration or action of any kind, or arbitration involving joint or consolidated claims under any circumstances, except as expressly set forth in this provision.
g. Arbitration Fees. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules, unless otherwise stated herein. You or Slice may be able to seek an award of attorney fees and expenses if you or we prevail in arbitration, to the extent provided under applicable law and the AAA rules. Unless the arbitrator determines that your claim or Slice’s claim was frivolous or filed for the purpose of harassment (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), Slice will not seek and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law or the AAA rules to recover attorneys’ fee and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
h. Arbitration Location and Attendance. Unless you and Slice otherwise agree, or the Batch Arbitration process discussed in subsection (f) is triggered, the arbitration will be conducted in Wilmington, Delaware. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or Slice may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on both parties subject to the discretion of the arbitrator to require an in-person hearing. In the event that an in-person hearing is held, you or Slice may attend by telephone, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.
i. Arbitrator. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of Delaware. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within thirty-five (35) days of delivery of the Request, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules, provided that if the Batch Arbitration process under subsection (f) is triggered, the AAA will appoint the arbitrator for each batch.
j. Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to resolve any Dispute, including, without limitation, disputes arising out of or related to the interpretation or application of the Arbitration Agreement, including the enforceability, revocability, scope, or validity of the Arbitration Agreement or any portion of the Arbitration Agreement, except for the following: (1) all Disputes arising out of or relating to the subsection (k) Class Action Waiver, including any claim that all or part of that subsection is unenforceable, illegal, void or voidable, or that that subsection has been breached, shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator; (2) except as expressly contemplated in subsection (f), all Disputes about the payment of arbitration fees shall be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator; (3) all Disputes about whether either party has satisfied any condition precedent to arbitration shall be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator; and (4) all Disputes about which version of the Arbitration Agreement applies shall be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any Dispute. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. An arbitrator’s decision or judgment thereon will not have any precedential or collateral estoppel effect.
k. Class Action Waiver. YOU AND SLICE AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS SPECIFIED IN SUBSECTION (F), EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE BASIS, AND THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO HAVE ANY DISPUTE BE BROUGHT, HEARD, ADMINISTERED, RESOLVED, OR ARBITRATED ON A CLASS, COLLECTIVE, REPRESENTATIVE, OR MASS ACTION BASIS. ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND DISPUTES OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. The arbitrator(s) may award relief (including monetary, injunctive and declaratory relief) only in favor of the individual party seeking the relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual party’s claim. Any relief awarded by an arbitrator cannot affect or impact any other Slice customer. Nothing in this paragraph is intended to, nor shall it, affect the terms and conditions under the subsection (f). If this paragraph is held unenforceable with respect to any Dispute, then the entirety of the Arbitration Agreement will be deemed void with respect to such Dispute. This subsection does not prevent you or Slice from participating in a class-wide settlement of claims.
l. Jury Trial Waiver. YOU AND SLICE HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and Slice are instead electing that all Disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in the subsection (a) above. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
m. Settlement Offers. Any settlement offer made by you or Slice shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator, unless and until the arbitrator issues an award on the claim.
n. Choice of Law and Forum. The arbitrator shall apply the substantive law of the State of Delaware, without regard to its conflict or choice of law principles. If for any reason a Dispute proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, all such Disputes arising out of or relating to this Agreement (other than small claims actions pursuant to subsection (c)) will be brought in the state courts located in Delaware, or federal court for Delaware. In such cases, you and Slice hereby consent and submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of such courts.
o. 30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to: 1942 NE 148 ST, Suite MVD 2657, North Miami, FL, 33181, within thirty (30) days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, the email address you used to set up your Slice account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of these Terms will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.
p. Severability, Expiration. With the exception of the provisions concerning Class Action Waiver (subsection (k)), if any other provision of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provision will be severed, and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall be given full force and effect. You and Slice further agree that any Dispute must be initiated via arbitration within the applicable statute of limitation for that claim or controversy, or it will be forever time barred. Likewise, you and Slice agree that all applicable statutes of limitation will apply to such arbitration in the same manner as those statutes of limitation would apply in the applicable court of competent jurisdiction.
q. Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, we agree that if Slice makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, it will notify you. Unless you reject the change within thirty (30) days of such change become effective by writing to Slice at 1942 NE 148 ST, Suite MVD 2657, North Miami, FL, 33181, your continued use of the Slice Platform and/or Services constitutes your acceptance of any such changes. Changes to this Arbitration Agreement do not provide you with a new opportunity to opt out of the Arbitration Agreement if you have previously agreed to a version of these Terms and did not validly opt out of arbitration. If you reject any change or update to this Arbitration Agreement, and you were bound by an existing agreement to arbitrate Disputes arising out of or relating in any way to your access to or use of the Services or of the Slice Platform, the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first accepted the Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms) remain in full force and effect. Slice will continue to honor any valid opt outs of the Arbitration Agreement that you made to a prior version of these Terms.
r. Confidentiality. You and we will keep confidential the existence of the arbitration, the arbitration proceedings, and the arbitrator’s decision, except: (a) as necessary to prepare for and conduct the arbitration hearing; (b) in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy, or confirmation of an arbitrator’s decision or its enforcement; (c) Slice may disclose the arbitrator’s decision in confidential settlement negotiations; (d) each party may disclose as necessary to professional advisors that are subject to a strict duty of confidentiality; and (e) as Law otherwise requires. The parties, witnesses, and arbitrator will treat as confidential and will not disclose to any third person (other than witnesses or experts) any documentary or other evidence produced in any arbitration, except as Law requires or if the evidence was obtained from the public domain or was otherwise obtained independently from the arbitration.

41. General Provisions
This Agreement and all policies and agreements incorporated by reference constitute the entire agreement between you and Slice for the provision of Services.
