SECTION 13 – ARBITRATION AND CLASS WAIVER
WE BOTH AGREE TO ARBITRATE: YOU AND CTS AGREE TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTES THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION, EXCEPT AS SET FORTH UNDER THE EXCEPTIONS TO THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE BELOW.
No Class Actions: You may only resolve Disputes with CTS on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, aggregate, collective, or representative action. Class arbitration, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not permitted under our agreement.
Waiver of Jury Trial: By entering into this arbitration agreement, you and CTS are each agreeing to waive the right to a jury trial.
What is Arbitration: Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) and must follow these Terms as a court would.
Opt-out of Agreement to Arbitrate: You can decline the agreement to arbitrate by contacting email@example.com and stating that you (include your first and last name) decline this arbitration agreement. The Opt-Out Notice must be emailed no later than thirty (30) days after the date you first accept these Terms by using CTS’s website.
Arbitration Procedures: The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Consumer Arbitration Rules. The arbitration will be held in the Franklin County, Ohio United States, unless we mutually agree on another county. Click to view the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules.
Arbitration Fees: The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. You agree to pay initial filing fees (not to exceed that which would be paid in a state or federal court located in Franklin County, Ohio). CTS will pay all other arbitration fees for claims less than $10,000. Unless prohibited by the AAA rules or applicable law, each party will pay their own attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration. Notwithstanding the previous sentence, you agree to pay CTS’s reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration if the arbitrator determines your claim is frivolous. Furthermore, if CTS or you file an action in a court of law or equity in violation of this arbitration agreement, we agree to pay the other’s reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs incurred if successful in moving the action from a court of law or equity to arbitration.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate: Either you or CTS may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of CTS’s products, or infringement of intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute resolution process described below.
Informal Dispute Resolution; Notice and Opportunity to Cure: Prior to filing any action concerning this Agreement, You and CTS agree must first try in good faith to resolve any dispute informally. Neither party may commence any action whether in mediation, arbitration, or in a court for at least sixty (60) calendar days after you or CTS notifies the other of a dispute by sending a written document via certified mail. The document must be titled, “Dispute Resolution Notice.” You must send the “Dispute Resolution Notice” to CTS, LLC, c/o Michael D. Bonasera, Dinsmore & Shohl, LLP, 191 W. Nationwide Blvd., Suite 300, Columbus, OH 43215, and we must send our Dispute Resolution Notice to your billing address then appearing in our records or to any other address that You specifically direct CTS to use. The Dispute Resolution Notice must: (i) contain your full name and contact information; (ii) the nature and basis of the dispute; and (iii) set forth the specific relief sought in connection with the dispute. In the event that you and CTS do not reach an agreement to resolve the dispute within sixty (60) calendar days after the Dispute Resolution Notice is received, then you or CTS may commence an individual action in accordance with this Section.
Severability: If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced.

BECAUSE SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN SUCH STATES OR JURISDICTIONS, OUR LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
SECTION 15 - INDEMNIFICATION
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless CTS and our parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, partners, officers, directors, agents, contractors, licensors, service providers, subcontractors, suppliers, interns and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third-party due to or arising out of your breach of these Terms or the documents they incorporate by reference, or your violation of any law or the rights of a third-party.
SECTION 16 - SEVERABILITY
In the event that any provision of these Terms is determined to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms, such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.
SECTION 17 - TERMINATION
The obligations and liabilities of the parties incurred prior to the termination date shall survive the termination of this agreement for all purposes.
These Terms are effective unless and until terminated by either you or us. You may terminate these Terms at any time by notifying us that you no longer wish to use our Services, or when you cease using our site.

SECTION 18 - ENTIRE AGREEMENT
These Terms and any policies or operating rules posted by us on this site or in respect to The Service constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between you and us and govern your use of the Service, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications and proposals, whether oral or written, between you and us (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms).

SECTION 19 - CHOICE OF LAW AND FORUM

However, in the event you opt-out of arbitration or arbitration does not apply to the dispute as described in Section 13 above, you and CTS agree to litigate any dispute in a state or federal court located in Franklin County, Ohio.
SECTION 20 - NO WAIVER
If we fail to insist that you perform any obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived such rights and will not mean that you do not have to comply with your obligations. If we do waive a failure or breach by you, we will only do so in writing and that will not mean that we automatically waive any future failure of breach by you.
