12. DISPUTE RESOLUTION; INFORMAL RESOLUTION AND FORMAL RESOLUTION BY ARBITRATION/CLASS ACTION WAIVER

Except for any disputes, claims or controversies relating to the enforcement of Nikon’s intellectual property rights including without limitation the Trademarks, you and Nikon each agree that any legal or equitable claim, dispute or controversy relating to or arising from your use of any of the Nikon Owned Websites, or any Content contained on or used in connection with any of the Nikon Owned Websites or the interpretation, enforceability or applicability of these Terms and Conditions of Use (collectively  a “Claim”) will be resolved as follows:

A.     INFORMAL RESOLUTION:

You and Nikon will first attempt to resolve any Claim informally. In the event that any Claim arises between you and Nikon, you or Nikon as the case may be, must send to the other a notice of Claim which indicates in writing the name, address and contact information of the party sending the notice of Claim; the facts and any other relevant information pertaining to the Claim; and the party’s proposed resolution as to the Claim. You must send any notice of Claim to Nikon as follows: Nikon Optical Usa Inc.,140 Commerce Way, South Windsor, CT 06074, U.S.A. Nikon will send any notice of Claim to you at the contact information that Nikon has for you.  You and Nikon agree to try to promptly resolve any Claim informally. In the event a Claim is not resolved within 60 days after either you or Nikon as the case may be, receives a notice of Claim from the other, you or Nikon can request arbitration. Notwithstanding the requirement to arbitrate all Claims, you may commence an individual Claim in small claims court in lieu of arbitration.

B.     FORMAL RESOLUTION BY ARBITRATION/CLASS ACTION WAIVER:

READ THE FOLLOWING ARBITRATION PROVISION CAREFULLY, IT LIMITS YOUR RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. In the event that you and Nikon do not resolve a Claim informally or in small claims court, the Claim shall be settled by binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act.

The rules in arbitration are different.  There is no judge or jury, and review is limited, but an arbitrator may award the same damages and relief to you individually as a court could, as it must honor the same limitations stated in these Terms and Conditions of Use as a court would.  Arbitration will be conducted under the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures (referred to as the “JAMS Rules”) and under the rules set forth in these Terms and Conditions of Use. If there is a conflict between JAMS Rules and the rules set forth in these Terms and Conditions of Use, the rules set forth in these Terms and Conditions of Use shall govern. If you decide to initiate arbitration, Nikon agrees to pay the arbitration initiation fee and any additional required deposit required by JAMS to initiate your arbitration. You and Nikon agree to pay the costs of the arbitration proceeding provided however that if you are a consumer you shall not be required to pay more than $250.00 of the fees or such amount as the JAMS Rules may later prescribe. All other fees, such as attorneys’ fees and expenses of travel to the arbitration, will be paid in accordance with JAMS Rules.  Arbitration will be held at a location near your place of residence if possible, unless you and Nikon both agree to another location or to telephonic arbitration. To initiate arbitration, you or Nikon must do the following things:

(1) Write a demand for arbitration. The demand must include a description of the Claim and the amount of damages sought to be recovered. You can find a copy of a Demand for Arbitration at www.jamsadr.com.

(2) Send three copies of the Demand for Arbitration, plus the appropriate filing fee to: JAMS, 620 Eighth Ave., 34th Floor, New York, NY 10018.

(3) Send one copy of the Demand for Arbitration to the other party. You should send the Demand for Arbitration to Nikon as follows: Nikon Optical Usa Inc., 140 Commerce Way, South Windsor, CT 06074, U.S.A., Attention: Arbitration Claim/Legal Department. Nikon will send any Demand for Arbitration to you at the contact information that Nikon has for you.

Special Rules in the arbitration proceeding. (i) The arbitrator has no authority to make errors of law and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator does so. Otherwise, the arbitrator’s decision is final and binding on all parties and may be enforced in any Federal or State court that has jurisdiction. (ii) Neither you nor Nikon shall be entitled to join or consolidate claims in arbitration by or against other individuals or entities, or arbitrate any claim as a representative member of a class or in a private attorney general capacity, or in any other proceeding in which either you or Nikon proposes to act in a representative capacity.  THIS MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO INITIATE OR PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLASS OR CONSOLIDATED ACTION WHATSOEVER.  Accordingly, you and Nikon agree that the JAMS Class Action Procedures do not apply to our arbitration. A court may sever any portion of this dispute resolution provision if it finds such unenforceable, except for the prohibition on class, representative and private attorney general arbitrations.

13. CHOICE OF FORUM

You agree that any disputes, claims or controversies relating to the enforcement of any of Nikon’s intellectual property rights including without limitation the Trademarks, shall be filed, and that venue shall exist only in the state or federal courts located in Suffolk County, New York, and that you consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating any such disputes, claims or controversies.

IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER, HOWEVER, THIS PROVISION SHALL NOT BE CONSTRUED TO LIMIT YOUR RIGHTS UNDER CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS OF YOUR STATE OF RESIDENCE AS SET FORTH IN CONSUMER PROTECTION NOTICE SECTION 16 BELOW.

14. LIMITED TIME TO FILE CLAIMS

You agree that you will assert any Claim within one (1) year after the Claim arises, or such Claim will be barred.

PLEASE SEE CONSUMER PROTECTION NOTICE SECTION 16 BELOW FOR IMPORTANT LIMITATIONS ON THE TERMS OF THIS SECTION 14.

15. ENFORCEABILITY, ENTIRE AGREEMENT, NO WAIVER

A.     Enforceability

You agree that these Terms and Conditions of Use will be enforceable by us and our successors and assigns against you and your heirs, minors, successors, and assigns. You agree that if any provision within these Terms and Conditions of Use is found to be void or unenforceable, it will not affect the validity of the balance of these Terms and Conditions of Use, which shall remain valid and enforceable.

B.     Entire Agreement

These Terms and Conditions of Use and any additions, changes, edits and/or revisions made thereto by Nikon, constitute the entire agreement between you and Nikon and supersede in their entirety any and all written or oral agreements previously existing between you and Nikon.

C.     No Waiver

Neither these Terms and Conditions of Use nor any provisions hereof may be modified, waived, amended, supplemented or discharged except by a document in writing signed by Nikon, or as otherwise permitted herein. The failure to enforce at any time any of the provisions of these Terms and Conditions of Use shall in no way be construed to be a waiver of such provisions, nor in any way affect the validity of these Terms and Conditions of Use or the right thereafter to enforce one or more of the provisions thereof.  No waiver by either you or Nikon, whether expressed or implied, of any provision of these Terms and Conditions of Use and any additions, changes, edits and/or modifications made by Nikon, or any breach thereof, shall constitute a continuing waiver of such provision or a waiver of any other provision of these Terms and Conditions of Use.

16. CONSUMER PROTECTION NOTICE; EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS

IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER, THE PROVISIONS IN THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE ARE INTENDED TO BE ONLY AS BROAD AND INCLUSIVE AS IS PERMITTED BY THE LAWS OF YOUR STATE OF RESIDENCE.  IF YOU ARE A NEW JERSEY CONSUMER, THE TERMS OF SECTIONS 2, 7, 8, 11, 13 AND 14 DO NOT LIMIT OR WAIVE YOUR RIGHTS AS A CONSUMER UNDER NEW JERSEY LAW AND THE PROVISIONS IN THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE ARE INTENDED TO BE ONLY AS BROAD AND INCLUSIVE AS IS PERMITTED BY THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY.
