Governing Law; Dispute Resolution
These Terms shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of Georgia, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
For any dispute with Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. you agree to first contact us by phone at (800-433-4822) or e-mail (CustomerCare@hvac.mea.com) or U.S. Mail at Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc., ATTN: Customer Care, 1340 Satellite Blvd., Suwanee, GA 30024, and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally by providing your name, address, and contact information and describing the nature of the dispute. In the unlikely event that Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. has not been able to resolve a dispute with you within 60 days of your original informal claim (or sooner if, in Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc.’s opinion, a dispute is not likely to be resolved within 60 days), we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy arising out of or in connection with or relating to the Service, or the breach of these Terms (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration before an arbitrator from Judicial Mediation and Arbitration Services (“JAMS”) located in Gwinnett County, Georgia. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com and will require you to pay an initial filing fee set by JAMS (unless you successfully apply for a waiver of this fee from JAMS). All other JAMS costs associated with the arbitration will be borne by Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. The arbitration will be conducted in Gwinnett County, Georgia, unless you request an in-person hearing where you live, or if you and Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. agree otherwise. If the arbitrator decides in your favor, the award may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorneys' fees and your reasonable costs for any expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. If the arbitrator makes an award in your favor greater than MEUS's last written offer, MEUS will pay you the greater of the award or $500, plus your reasonable attorney's fees, if any, and reimburse any reasonable expenses (including reasonable expert witness fees and costs) that are reasonably accrued for investigating, preparing, and pursuing your claim in arbitration, as determined by the arbitrator or as agreed to by you and MEUS. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
All claims must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. This waiver applies to class arbitration unless such arbitration is necessary to effectuate the enforcement of the court class action waiver or in the event that class arbitration is expressly agreed to by Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. You agree that you and Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.
You may opt-out of the foregoing arbitration and class action/jury trial waiver provision by notifying Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. in writing within 30 days of purchase. Such written notification must be sent to Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc., ATTN: Legal, 5900-A Katella Avenue, Cypress, CA 90630, and must include (1) your name, (2) your address, (3) your purchase information, and (4) a clear statement indicating that you do not wish to resolve disputes through arbitration and demonstrating compliance with the 30-day time limit to opt-out. Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us regarding our Service, and supersede and replace any prior agreements we might have had between us regarding the Service.
