21. RESOLVING DISPUTES
PLEASE READ THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. THESE PROVISIONS, KNOWN AS THE “DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROVISIONS” PROVIDE THAT ANY DISPUTE RELATING TO OR ARISING OUT OF THE SITE, YOUR USE OF THE SITE OR PURCHASES MADE FROM THE SITE MAY BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION AS SET FORTH BELOW. THIS PROCESS MAY DIFFER FROM THE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCESS SET FORTH IN THE CUSTOMER AGREEMENT AT WWW.SIRIUSXM.COM/CUSTOMER-AGREEMENT FOR ANY SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE OFFERED BY THE COMPANY THAT YOU MAY HAVE (THE “CUSTOMER AGREEMENT”). THE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCESSES CONTAINED IN THE CUSTOMER AGREEMENT ARE SEPARATE AND DO NOT APPLY TO CLAIMS RELATED TO YOUR USE OF THIS SITE. ANY OPT-OUT OF ARBITRATION REQUESTED UNDER THE CUSTOMER AGREEMENT DOES NOT APPLY TO THIS AGREEMENT. FURTHER, ANY OPT-OUT PURSUANT TO SECTION 21(H) BELOW WILL NOT APPLY TO CLAIMS ARISING OR RELATING TO YOUR CUSTOMER AGREEMENT.
YOU ARE HEREBY WAIVING THE RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO A JURY. IN ARBITRATION, A DISPUTE IS RESOLVED BY AN ARBITRATOR, OR A PANEL OF ARBITRATORS, INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY. THE PARTIES UNDERSTAND THAT THEY WOULD HAVE HAD A RIGHT OR OPPORTUNITY TO LITIGATE DISPUTES THROUGH A COURT AND TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE THEIR CASE, BUT THEY CHOOSE TO HAVE ANY DISPUTES RESOLVED THROUGH ARBITRATION.
THESE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROVISIONS SHALL SURVIVE THE TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT.
Any legal or equitable claim relating to your access to or use of our Site, to any Products sold or distributed through this Site or this Agreement (a "Claim"), will be resolved as follows:
a. Mandatory Pre-Arbitration Notice and Informal Claim Resolution Procedures: To initiate an informal resolution of a Claim, the initiating party must send a written dispute notice to the other party by first class United States mail. If you initiate a Claim, send notice to Sirius XM Radio Inc., 1221 Avenue of the Americas, 35th Floor, New York, NY 10020, Attention: General Counsel. If we initiate a Claim, we will send our notice to the billing address on file with us. Neither of us may start a formal proceeding (except for Claims described in Section 21(e) below) for at least sixty (60) days after one of us notifies the other of a Claim in writing. Any notice must include (i) the claimant’s name, address, email address; (ii) description of the nature and basis of the Claim; (iii) relevant facts regarding the Claim; (iv) a description of the nature and basis of the specific relief sought, including damages sought, if any, and a detailed calculation for them; and (v) a personally signed statement from the claimant (or a corporate representative if claimant is Sirius XM) (and not their counsel, an agent or other representative) verifying the accuracy of the contents of the notice. Such informal resolution request must be made individually and must concern only the initiating party’s dispute and no other person’s dispute.
After receipt of a completed dispute notice, the parties shall engage in a good faith effort to resolve the dispute for a period of sixty (60) days (which can be extended by agreement). If we and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the issues identified in the notice within sixty (60) days after the completed notice is received (or a longer time if agreed to by the parties), you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding or a small claims court proceeding (if permitted by small claims court rules).
Compliance with this Mandatory Pre-Arbitration Notice and Informal Dispute Resolution Procedures section is a condition precedent to initiating arbitration. Any applicable limitations period (including statute of limitations) and any filing fee deadlines shall be tolled while the parties engage in the informal dispute resolution procedures set forth in this Section 21(a). All of the Mandatory Pre-Arbitration Notice and Informal Dispute Resolution Procedures are essential so that you and we have a meaningful opportunity to resolve disputes informally.
If any aspect of these requirements has not been met, a court of competent jurisdiction may enjoin the filing or prosecution of an arbitration. In addition, unless prohibited by law, the arbitration administrator may not accept, administer, assess, or demand fees in connection with an arbitration that has been initiated without completion of the Mandatory Pre-Arbitration Notice and Informal Dispute Resolution Procedures. If the arbitration is already pending, it shall be administratively closed. Nothing in this paragraph limits the right of a party to seek damages for non-compliance with these Mandatory Pre-Arbitration Notice and Informal Dispute Resolution Procedures in arbitration.
b. Formal Resolution: If you and we cannot resolve a Claim informally, including any dispute as to the scope, validity, or applicability of this arbitration clause, then the Claims shall be resolved, upon election by either party, exclusively and finally by binding arbitration.
For the avoidance of doubt, you and Sirius XM are agreeing that any issues concerning: (i) the arbitrability of any Claim; (ii) whether these arbitration provisions are unenforceable, unconscionable, applicable, valid, void or voidable; or (iii) the interpretation of this Agreement, including its arbitration provisions, will, in the first instance, be delegated to the arbitrator.
The party initiating arbitration must follow the applicable rules and procedures of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in effect at the time the Claim is filed, and the parties agree that the arbitration shall be administered by the AAA. You may obtain copies of the current rules, forms and instructions for initiating an arbitration by contacting:
American Arbitration Association
Floor New York, New York 10019
Web site: www.adr.org
This arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), and not by any state law concerning arbitration.
You and we agree that the party initiating arbitration must submit a certification that (i) they have complied with and completed the Mandatory Pre-Arbitration Notice and Informal Dispute Resolution Procedures requirements contained in Section 21(a) and (ii) they are a party to this agreement to arbitrate enclosed with or attached to the demand for arbitration. The demand for arbitration and certification must be personally signed by the party initiating arbitration (and their counsel, if represented).
c. Confidentiality: Upon either party’s request, the arbitrator will issue an order requiring that confidential information of either party disclosed during the arbitration (whether in documents or orally) may not be used or disclosed except in connection with the arbitration or a proceeding to enforce the arbitration award and that any permitted court filing of confidential information must be done under seal to the furthest extent permitted by law.
Arbitration Relief: The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief, including a Claim for public injunctive relief brought in an individual capacity, and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual Claim. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and we agree otherwise or as provided in this arbitration agreement, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s Claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative, class, or private attorney general proceeding. If, after exhaustion of all appeals, any of these prohibitions on non-individualized declaratory or injunctive relief; class, representative, and private attorney general claims; and consolidation are found to be unenforceable with respect to a particular Claim or with respect to a particular request for relief (such as a request for injunctive relief sought with respect to a particular Claim), then the parties agree such a Claim or request for relief shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction, after all other arbitrable Claims and requests for relief are arbitrated.
You agree that any arbitrations between you and Company will be subject to the Dispute Resolution Provisions in this Section 21 and not to any prior arbitration agreement you had with Company.
e. Exceptions: Notwithstanding the foregoing, any dispute involving a violation of the Communications Act of 1934, 47 U.S.C. §605, the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, 18 U.S.C. §§2510-2521, or a violation of our intellectual property rights may be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction.
f. Small Claims: Instead of proceeding to arbitration, either you or we have the option to pursue a Claim in small claims court (or the equivalent) so long as the Claim 1) remains in that court, 2) is made solely on our behalf (if brought by us) or on your behalf, and 3) does not seek damages or other monetary relief in excess of $5,000. However, if that Claim is transferred or appealed to a different court, we reserve our right to elect arbitration.
g. Arbitration Costs: Whoever files the arbitration pays the initial filing fee. If we file, we pay; if you file, you pay. Each party will bear the expense of its own attorneys, experts, witnesses, and other expenses, regardless of which party prevails. If the arbitrator finds that either party’s Claim or the relief sought in the demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), the other party will have the right to recover its attorneys’ fees and expenses.
h. Opt-out of Arbitration: You may elect to exclude yourself from this agreement to arbitrate by sending a letter (an “Opt-Out Notice”) by first class United States mail to Sirius XM Radio Inc., 1221 Avenue of the Americas, 35th Floor, New York, New York 10020; Attention: General Counsel: Arbitration Opt-Out for the SiriusXM Shop. The Opt-Out Notice must include (1) your first and last name; (2) your postal mailing address; (3) your phone number; (4) your email address; (5) your order number and date of such order (as applicable); and (6) a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with us through arbitration (an “Opt-Out Notice.”). You must personally sign the Opt-Out Notice (and not your counsel, an agent or other representative).
The Opt-Out Notice must be received no later than thirty (30) days after you first become subject to this agreement to arbitrate. All other terms of this Agreement will continue to apply to this Site and purchases made through this Site, and this Agreement including the requirement to participate in Informal Dispute Resolution (Section 21(a)), the Class Action Waiver (Section 21(k)), and the Applicable Law provision (Section 22(d)). If you do not timely opt-out of this agreement to arbitrate, such action shall constitute mutual acceptance of these arbitration terms. Opting out of these arbitration terms has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.
i. Special Procedures for Mass Arbitration. If twenty-five (25) or more similar Claims are asserted against us by or through the same or coordinated counsel or are otherwise coordinated, you understand and agree that the resolution of your dispute will be subject to these Special Procedures for Mass Arbitration. These Special Procedures for Mass Arbitration will apply whether or not such Claims are filed simultaneously. You also agree to the following coordinated bellwether process and application of the AAA Multiple Consumer Case Filing Fee Schedule and the AAA Mass Arbitration Supplementary Rules.
Counsel for the claimants and counsel for us shall each select ten (10) cases (per side) to proceed first in individual arbitration proceedings as part of a bellwether process. The parties may, but are not required to, agree in writing to modify the number of cases to be included in the bellwether process. The remaining cases shall not be filed or deemed filed in arbitration nor shall any AAA fees be assessed in connection with those cases until they are selected to proceed to individual arbitration proceedings pursuant to this provision.
In the bellwether process, a single arbitrator shall preside over each case. Only one case may be assigned to each arbitrator during the bellwether process unless the parties agree otherwise. These bellwether Claims will be resolved within one-hundred and twenty (120) days of the initial pre-hearing conference.
After decisions have been rendered in the first twenty (20) cases, we and all claimants shall engage in a global mediation in an attempt to resolve the remaining cases with the benefit of the decisions in the bellwether cases. If the parties are unable to resolve the remaining cases after the mediation, each side shall select another ten (10) cases (per side) to proceed to individual arbitration proceedings as part of a second bellwether process.
After decisions have been rendered in the second group of twenty (20) cases, we and all claimants shall engage in a second global mediation in an attempt to resolve the remaining cases with the benefit of the decisions in the decided bellwether cases; if a global settlement cannot be reached in the second mediation, the parties also may discuss with the mediator the process for resolving the remaining cases with the benefit of the decisions in the first two (2) rounds of bellwether cases; the parties are not required to agree to any modifications to the process set forth herein.
Following the second global mediation, you or we may separately or by agreement, opt-out of arbitration and elect to have your Claim heard in court consistent with this Agreement. You may opt-out of arbitration by providing an Opt-Out Notice in accordance with Section 21(h), except this notice shall be provided within thirty (30) days after the conclusion of the second global mediation. We may opt your Claim out of arbitration by sending an individual notice of our intention to opt-out to your counsel, signed by a corporate representative and sent by first class United States Mail within fourteen (14) days of the expiration of your thirty (30) day period to opt-out.
Absent a settlement or agreement to modify the procedure for arbitrating the remaining cases (to the extent you or we have not opted-out), in order to increase the efficiency of administration and resolution of any remaining arbitrations, the arbitration provider shall: (i) administer the arbitration demands in batches of fifty (50) demands (to be randomly selected unless otherwise agreed by the parties) per batch (to the extent there are fewer than fifty (50) arbitration demands left over after the batching described above, a final batch will consist of the remaining demands); (ii) designate one (1) arbitrator for each batch; (iii) provide for a single filing fee due per side per batch; and (iv) not administer more than five (5) batches at any given time.
You agree to cooperate in good faith with us and the arbitration provider to implement such a “batch approach” or other similar approach to provide for an efficient resolution of Claims, including the payment of single filing and administrative fees for batches of Claims. This “Batch Arbitration” provision shall in no way be interpreted as authorizing class arbitration of any kind. The remaining cases shall not be filed or deemed filed in arbitration nor shall any AAA fees be assessed in connection with those cases until they are selected for inclusion in a batch pursuant to this provision.
We do not agree or consent to class arbitration, private attorney general arbitration, or arbitration involving joint or consolidated Claims under any circumstances, except as set forth in this Section 21(i).
The statute of limitations and any filing fee deadlines shall be tolled for Claims subject to this Section 21(i) from the time these Special Procedures for Mass Arbitration are triggered until the time your Claim is selected to proceed, withdrawn, opted-out of these Special Procedures for Mass Arbitration or otherwise resolved.
A court shall have authority to enforce this Section 21(i) and, if necessary, to enjoin the mass filing or prosecution of arbitration demands against us.
j. Injunctive Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Section 21 will not apply to any legal action taken by us to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with, any loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to our intellectual property rights, our operations, and/or our Products.
k. Class Actions and Severability: You do not have the right to act as a class representative or participate as a member of a class of claimants with respect to any Claim submitted to arbitration or litigation (to the extent you elect to Opt-Out of Arbitration) (“Class Action Waiver”). A “Claim” does not include any challenge to the validity and effect of the Class Action Waiver, which must be decided by a court. There shall be no right or authority for any Claims to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on bases involving Claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public, as a private attorney general, or other customers, or other persons similarly situated. The parties acknowledge and agree that under no circumstances will a class action be arbitrated.
The Class Action Waiver is material and essential to the arbitration of any disputes between the parties and is non-severable from this agreement to arbitrate Claims. If the Class Action Waiver is limited, voided or cannot be enforced, then the parties' agreement to arbitrate (except for this sentence) shall be null and void, subject to the right to appeal any limitation or invalidation of the Class Action Waiver. If this entire agreement to arbitrate is determined to be null and void, then the parties agree that any actions shall be brought in the State or Federal courts of New York, New York.
l. Binding Effect: In any arbitration proceeding, the arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged, as set forth in the FAA. Any court with jurisdiction may enter judgment upon the arbitrator’s award. The arbitrator's decision is final and binding on all parties and may be enforced in any federal or state court with jurisdiction.
a. Notices: Where we require that you provide an email address, you are responsible for providing us with your most current email address. If the last email address you provided to us is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you any notices required or permitted by this Agreement, our dispatch of the email containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice.
