Disputes - Arbitration Agreement & Waiver of Certain Rights:
Individuals who participate in this Sweepstakes (“You”) and The Container Store agree to resolve any disputes related to these Official Rules, and your participation in the Sweepstakes, through binding and final arbitration through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court or seek action through government agencies.
YOU AND THE CONTAINER STORE HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OF ANY DISPUTE YOU HAVE WITH THE CONTAINER STORE. COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION DECISION IS LIMITED AND THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY; HOWEVER, AN ARBITRATOR CAN AWARD ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF AS A COURT AND MUST FOLLOW THESE TERMS AS A COURT WOULD. THIS SECTION LIMITS CERTAIN OTHER RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN AAA RULES AND THE RIGHT TO CERTAIN REMEDIES AND FORMS OF RELIEF. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU OR THE CONTAINER STORE WOULD HAVE IN COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. Both you and The Container Store retain the right to bring suit in court only to enjoin infringement or other misuses of intellectual property rights, and such action shall not be deemed a waiver of the right to have disputes submitted to arbitration as provided in these terms.
To begin a proceeding, you must send a letter describing your claim and requesting arbitration to our registered agent: The Container Store Inc, c/o Cogency Global Inc, 1601 Elm Street, Suite 4360 Dallas, TX 75201. The arbitration will be conducted by a single arbitrator with the AAA under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes available at www.adr.org or 1-800-778-7879. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in-person in the state where you live or at another mutually agreeable location. The arbitration will be kept confidential except as may lawfully be required.
Payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. If you demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of court, we will pay as much of the fees required for the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the cost of the arbitration from being prohibitive. The Container Store will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.
ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDING WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION. NEITHER YOU NOR THE CONTAINER STORE MAY ACT AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL OR CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, NOR PARTICIPATE AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS OF CLAIMANTS, WITH RESPECT TO ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM.
This section of these terms will survive the termination of the relationship with you and The Container Store.
Both you and The Container Store agree these terms evidence a transaction in interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable federal law (or in the absence of applicable federal law, then the laws of the state of Texas, without regard to any conflict of laws principles) apply to these Official Rules and your participation in the Sweepstakes.
If any provision of these terms is found to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these terms and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining provisions.
