Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration

You are required to read this carefully. It impacts your rights.

Almost majority of your concerns or issues can be resolved quickly as well as swiftly to your satisfaction by contacting our Customer Service Center through our Contact Us page. In the unlikely event that our Customer Service could not able to resolve your complaint or issue to your satisfaction, or in case if we have not been able to resolve a dispute with you after striving to do so informally, we each agree to resolve those disputes as well as issues through binding arbitration rather than in a court.

Arbitration is less formal comparing to a lawsuit. Arbitration utilizes a neutral arbitrator instead of a jury or judge, facilitates less discovery than courts, and is subject to very limited court review. We understand and agree that any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis. Representative, group, collective or class actions or arbitrations are not allowed or permitted.

As explained and detailed below, if you prevail in arbitration, Global Digital Inc is willing to pay you more than the amount of the arbitrator's award and will pay your reasonable, actual attorney's fees if you are awarded an amount greater than what Global Digital Inc offered you to amicably settle the dispute or issue before arbitration.

You may speak with or get in touch with your own lawyer before utilizing this Website or purchasing any Service, but your usage of this Website as well as the purchase of any Service constitutes your agreement to these Terms.

Arbitration Agreement:

  • (A) Global Digital Inc and you agree to arbitrate all the disputes as well as claims between us before a single arbitrator. The kinds of claims as well as disputes we agree to arbitrate are intended to be broadly interpreted, including but not limited to the:
    • Claims or issues arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship or association between us, whether based in contract, statute, tort, fraud, misrepresentation, advertising, or any other legal theory;
    • Claims that arose before these or any other prior Terms became effective;
    • Claims that are currently the subject of proposed or purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and
    • Claims that may arise after the termination of these given Terms.

For the purposes of this Arbitration Agreement stated here, references to " Global Digital Inc," "you," and "us" include our respective subsidiaries, agents, affiliates, employees, employers, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of Services under these Terms or any prior agreements and/or understanding between us.

Please note that this arbitration agreement does not preclude or prevent your bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law permits, seek relief against us on your behalf. You understand and completely agree that, by entering into these Terms, you and Global Digital Inc are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a group, representative collective or class action or arbitration.

You understand and acknowledge that usage of this Website and/or purchase of Service constitutes a transaction in inter-state commerce. The Federal Arbitration Act (also known as ‘FAA’) governs the interpretation as well as enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement survives termination of these Terms.

  • (B) party seeking or willing for arbitration under these Terms must first send, by the U.S. certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (‘Notice’) to the other party. A Notice to Global Digital Inc should be sent to the address: 13854, Lakeside Circle, 2nd Floor, Sterling Heights, Michigan - 48313
  • (C) Attention: Notice of Dispute (the ‘Notice Address’).

Global Digital Inc. may send a written Notice to the electronic mail (e-mail) address that you have given when you created an account, if any. The Notice of Dispute must (i) describe the nature as well as basis of the dispute or claim and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought (that is, ‘Demand’).

If Global Digital Inc and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim or issue within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, you or Global Digital Inc may commence or initiate an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Global Digital Inc or you shall not be disclosed or intimated to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator decides the amount, if any, to which you or Global Digital Inc is entitled.

  • (D) Once Global Digital Inc receives notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, it will promptly and quickly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your total claim amount is for more than $75,000. If your total claim exceeds $75,000, the payment of all arbitration fees will be governed by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) rules. The filing fee for consumer-initiated arbitrations is currently fixed as $200, but this is subject to change or modification by the arbitration provider.

If you are unable to pay this fee and your total claim is for $75,000 or less, then Global Digital Inc will pay the filing fee directly after getting a written request at the Notice Address. Except as otherwise provided herein, Global Digital Inc will pay all AAA filing, administration as well as arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated in accordance with these Terms. If, however, the arbitrator notices or finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper and/or unlawful purpose (as measured by the standards in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all such fees will be governed and monitored by the AAA Rules. In such an event, you completely agree to reimburse the Global Digital Inc for all monies previously disbursed by Global Digital Inc that are otherwise your obligation to pay as per the AAA Rules.

All arbitration proceeding will be governed and monitored by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively called as the ‘AAA Rules’) of the American Arbitration Association (AAA), as modified or changed by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA.

The AAA Rules can be availed online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator is bound by these Terms. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide and determine except that issues associated with the scope, enforceability, and interpretation of the arbitration provision and the scope, enforceability, and interpretation of paragraph (f) are for the court to take decision(s).

Unless Global Digital Inc and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county or parish of the contact address that you have submitted to Global Digital Inc. If your total claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose or prefer whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, by an in-person hearing or by a telephone hearing governed by the AAA Rules. If you choose or prefer to proceed either by telephone or in person, we may choose to respond only by written or telephone. If your claim exceeds $10,000 value, the AAA Rules will determine whether you have any right to a telephone or in-person hearing. The parties involved agree that in any arbitration under these Terms, neither party will rely as well as depend on any award or finding of fact or conclusion of law made in any other arbitration to which Global Digital Inc was a party. In all cases, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned, written decision sufficient enough to explain the findings of fact as well as conclusions of law on which the award is based.

  • (E) If, the arbitrator finds and decides in your favor in any respect on the merits of your claim, and the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of Global Digital Inc.’s last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was chosen, then Global Digital Inc. will pay you either the amount of the award or $2,000 (known as the ‘Alternative Payment’), whichever is greater, plus the actual amount of reasonable attorney's fees as well as expenses that you incurred in investigating, preparing, arranging and pursuing your claim in arbitration (the "Attorney's Payment").

If we did not make you a written offer to settle the dispute or issue before an arbitrator was selected, you will be entitled to get the Alternative Payment as well as the Attorney's Payment, respectively, if the arbitrator awards you any relief on the merits. The arbitrator may make rulings as well as resolve disputes as to the payment as well as reimbursement of expenses, fees, as well as the Alternative Payment and the Attorney's Payment at any point in time during the proceeding as well as upon request from either party made within the span of 14 days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits.

In assessing and evaluating whether an award that includes attorney’s fees or expenses is greater than the value of Global Digital Inc.’s last written settlement offer, the arbitrator shall take into consideration only the actual attorney’s fees or expenses reasonably incurred before Global Digital Inc.’s settlement offer.

  • (F) The right to attorney's fees as well as expenses discussed in paragraph (d) supplements any right to attorney's fees as well as expenses you may have under applicable law. If you would be entitled to a larger amount under applicable law, this provision does not preclude or prevent the arbitrator from awarding you that amount. Nevertheless, you may not recover duplicative awards of attorney's fees or any costs. Even though under some laws Global Digital Inc may have a right to an award of attorney's fees as well as expenses from you if it prevails in an arbitration, Global Digital Inc will not seek such an award.
  • (G) The arbitrator may award monetary as well as injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent deemed necessary to offer relief warranted by that party's individual claim. YOU AND THE GLOBAL DIGITAL INC UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES AND NOT AS PLAINTIFFS OR CLASS MEMBERS IN ANY PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE, GROUP OR CLASS ACTION OR ARBITRATION, OR IN THE CAPACITY OF A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL.

    Moreover, unless both you as well as Global Digital Inc agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not decide to consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative, group or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award any relief that a court could award that is individualized to the claimant and would not affect or impact other customers.

    Neither you nor we may seek non-individualized relief that would affect or impact other customers. If a court decides that applicable law precludes or prevents enforcement of any of this paragraph's limitations as to a particular or specific claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court. All other claims stay or remain subject to this Arbitration Agreement.

  • (H) In case, if the total amount in dispute exceeds $75,000 or either party seeks any form of injunctive relief, either party may appeal the award to a three-arbitrator panel administered and/or governed by AAA by a written notice of appeal within thirty (30) days from the date of entry of the written arbitration award. An award of injunctive relief shall be stayed and could not be executed during any such appeal. The members of the three-arbitrator panel will be selected or chosen as per AAA rules. The three-arbitrator panel will issue its decision within a period of one hundred and twenty (120) days of the date of the appealing party's notice of appeal. The decision of the three-arbitrator panel shall be final as well as binding, subject to any right of judicial review that exists under the FAA.
  • (I) Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, we understand and agree that if we make any material change or modification to this arbitration provision (other than a change or modification to any notice address, telephone number or website link), that change or modification will not apply to any dispute of which we had written notice on the effective date of the change.

    Moreover, if we seek termination of this arbitration provision, any such termination will not be effective until at least thirty (30) days after written notice of such termination is given to you, and shall not be effective as to disputes which arose prior to the termination date.
