Arbitration will be binding and judgment on the award rendered in the arbitration may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
In arbitration, there is no judge and no jury, and review of arbitration decisions in the courts is very limited.
Instead, disputes will be resolved by an arbitrator, whose authority is governed by the terms of this Agreement. You agree that an arbitrator may only award such relief as a court of competent jurisdiction could award, limited to the same extent as a court would limit relief pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. Discovery may be limited in arbitration, and procedures are more streamlined than in court. You agree that all claims or disputes between us will be arbitrated individually, and that there will be no class, representative, or consolidated actions in arbitration.
If you or we bring a claim in small claims court, the class action waiver will apply, and neither of the parties can bring a claim on a class or representative basis. Furthermore, neither you nor we may participate in a class or representative action as a class member if the class action asserts claims that would fall within the scope of this arbitration agreement if they were directly asserted by you or us. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this arbitration agreement shall not prohibit you or us from participating in any judgment or settlement in any litigation brought by a federal, state, or local government on behalf of you or us, excluding litigation brought by any relator or party in its capacity as a private attorney general.
We both agree that this class action waiver is an essential part of our arbitration agreement and that if this class action waiver is found to be unenforceable by any court or arbitrator then the entire arbitration agreement set forth in this section will not apply to any claim or dispute between you and us. This class action waiver may not be severed from our arbitration agreement. You and the Sinclair Affiliate that operates the Service agree to try to resolve disputes informally before resorting to arbitration.
If the dispute cannot be resolved by telephone, you agree to notify us of the dispute by sending a written description of your claim to comments sbgi. If we do not satisfactorily resolve your claim within 30 calendar days of receiving notice of it, then you may pursue the claim in arbitration.
Neither you nor we may initiate arbitration without first providing the other notice of the claim and following the informal dispute resolution procedure provided in this paragraph. You and the Sinclair Affiliate that operates the Service agree that this Agreement affects interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act applies. To initiate arbitration, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claims to comments sbgi.
We will not seek to recover our fees and costs from you in the arbitration unless your claim has been determined to be frivolous.
However, we maintain the right to do so and to use any other forms of information available to us by virtue of your use of our Service including, for example, reverse IP address inquiry in order to comply with the law, to enforce this Agreement, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to our Service, our customers, the public our employees, Service Providers and Affiliates.
We reserve the right to deny access to any Communications Service to anyone who violates this visitor agreement or who, in our judgment, interferes with the ability of others to enjoy our Service or infringes the rights of others. We will comply with the requirements of the law regarding disclosure of any messages to others, including law enforcement agencies.
