Use of this Website is limited to residents of the United States. If you or your use of this Website are subject to the laws of any non-United States jurisdiction, you use this Website at your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws. We make no claims that the Website or any of its content is accessible or appropriate outside of the United States.
13. Electronic Delivery/Notice Policy and Your Consent
You consent to receive from any communications from I-REIT (including notices, agreements, legally required disclosures or other information in connection with the Website; collectively, "Contract Notices") electronically. I-REIT may provide such electronic Contract Notices by posting them on this Website. If you desire to withdraw your consent to receive Contract Notices electronically, you must discontinue your use of the Website.
14. Governing Law
All matters relating to the Website and these Terms and Conditions, and any dispute or claim arising therefrom or related thereto (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Maryland without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule.
15. Integration and Severability
The Terms and Conditions (including provisions incorporated by reference) are the entire agreement between you and I-REIT with respect to the Website and use of the Website, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications, agreements and representations (whether oral, written or electronic) between you and I-REIT with respect to the Website. If any provision of the Terms and Conditions is held in a final non-appealable ruling to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms and Conditions will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
No waiver by us of any term or condition set forth in these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure by us to assert a right or provision under these Terms and Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
If you have any dispute, claim, or controversy against the I-REIT, before proceeding to arbitration or any other means of dispute resolution, you must first provide us with written notice of the nature and basis of your claim and a statement of the specific relief you are seeking. You must send this written notice to us at 345 N Maple Dr, Ste 298, Beverly Hills, CA 90210 or to firstname.lastname@example.org. You and I-REIT agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the issue within 30 days. However, if you and we cannot resolve the matter within 30 days, either you or we may proceed to arbitration.
You and I-REIT agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and I-REIT arising in connection with or relating in any way to these Terms and Conditions or your relationship with I-REIT as a purchaser or user of any product or service offered through the Site (whether based in contract, tort, statute, regulation, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of when any such claim may arise) will be determined by mandatory binding individual (not class) arbitration. You and I-REIT agree that the arbitrator shall have the exclusive power to rule on his or her own jurisdiction, including any objections with respect to the existence, scope or validity of this agreement to arbitrate disputes or to whether any claim or counterclaim is arbitrable.
Arbitration is more informal way of resolving disputes than a lawsuit in court. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. There may be more limited discovery than in court. The arbitrator must follow these Terms and Conditions and (subject to these Terms and Conditions) can award the same damages and relief as a court, except that the arbitrator may not award any relief, including declaratory or injunctive relief, benefiting anyone but the specific parties to the arbitration.
However, this agreement to arbitrate will not apply to the following: (a) disputes that qualify for resolution in small claims court cases; (b) proceedings that involve efforts to obtain user-identifying information; (c) any action sought by federal, state, or local government agencies; or (d) any action requesting provisional or equitable (non-monetary) relief, including pre-arbitral preliminary injunctions (it being agreed that seeking such equitable relief shall not be deemed incompatible with this agreement to arbitrate, nor a waiver of the right to have claims or disputes submitted to arbitration). Any litigation described in clauses (b), (c) or (d) must be brought in a California State or United States Federal court located in Los Angeles, California, and you and we consent to personal jurisdiction of such courts and waive any objection regarding venue or inconvenient forum. EACH PARTY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ANY AND ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms and Conditions, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by requesting them from us. You and I-REIT must mutually agree upon an arbitrator from the AAA’s panel of neutrals who shall be a retired state or federal court judge. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of these Terms and Conditions. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of these Terms and Conditions. Unless I-REIT and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in Los Angeles, California. The payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules; provided, that if you file an arbitration proceeding and you are required to pay a filing fee, I-REIT will reimburse you for that filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than $25,000, in which case you will be responsible for the filing fee. I-REIT will pay any other arbitration fees, including your share of arbitrator compensation, unless otherwise required by AAA rules or court order. Each party shall pay for its own costs and attorneys’ fees, if any. However, if any party prevails on a statutory claim that affords the prevailing party attorneys’ fees, or if there is a written agreement providing for payment or recovery attorneys’ fees, the arbitrator may award reasonable fees to the prevailing party, under the standards for fee shifting provided by law.
YOU AND I-REIT AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and I-REIT agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. If this paragraph regarding class or representative proceedings is found to be unenforceable, then (a) the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, but the remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions shall remain in full force and effect; and (b) exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any claims will be in California State or United States Federal courts in Los Angeles, California. EACH PARTY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ANY AND ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
17. Limitation on Time to File Claims
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OR THE SITE MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES, OTHERWISE SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
I-REIT shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond I-REIT’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation (including "line-noise" interference).
The Terms and Conditions are personal to you, and are not assignable or transferable by you except with our prior written consent. I-REIT may assign, transfer, subcontract, or delegate any of its rights and obligations hereunder without consent.
No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment relationship is created as a result of the Terms and Conditions. Neither you nor I-REIT has any authority of any kind to bind or create liabilities for the other in any respect. I-REIT has no special relationship with or fiduciary duty to you.
