    In arbitration, Disputes are resolved by a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, discovery is more limited than in court, and the arbitrator’s decision is subject to limited review by courts. The arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court, including monetary damages, injunctive relief, and declaratory relief. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. A single arbitrator with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) will conduct the arbitration, and the award may not exceed the relief allowed by applicable law. The arbitration will be conducted in the county of your residence or another mutually agreed location. The AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules will apply. If AAA will not apply those rules, then AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. The AAA’s rules and a form that can be used to initiate arbitration proceedings are available at http://www.adr.org. You and HOFRECO agree that if for any reason AAA will not conduct or becomes unavailable to conduct the arbitration, then a court may appoint a substitute arbitrator, and you and HOFRECO further agree that the choice of AAA as a forum is not integral to the Arbitration Agreement.


    The arbitrator will decide all issues relating to the enforceability, interpretation, scope, and application of this Arbitration Agreement (including “gateway” issues of arbitrability, whether the Arbitration Agreement is unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration), and these Terms, except that a court will resolve any question regarding the validity or enforceability of the class action waiver set forth in Section B of this Arbitration Agreement. The term “Dispute” and the requirement to arbitrate will be broadly interpreted.

    B.Arbitration Class Action Waiver. You and HOFRECO agree that the arbitration will be conducted solely on an individual basis and not on a class, representative, consolidated, or private attorney general basis. A Dispute may not be consolidated with a claim brought or discovery by any person or entity that is not a party to the arbitration proceeding. The arbitrator may not award relief to any person or entity other than a party to the arbitration proceeding and may only award such relief as is necessary to provide relief to a party to the arbitration proceeding. If a court deems any portion of this Section B invalid or unenforceable, then Sections A and C of this Arbitration Agreement will be null and void.

    C.Non-Arbitration Class Action and Jury Waiver; Choice of Venue. You and HOFRECO agree that if for any reason a Dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration: (1) you and HOFRECO waive any right to a jury trial; (2) the Dispute will proceed solely on an individual, non-class, non-representative basis; (3) neither you nor HOFRECO may be a class representative or class member or otherwise participate in any class, representative, consolidated, or private attorney general proceeding; and (4) the Dispute will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts situated within the State of Ohio.

    D.Fees and Costs in Arbitration. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. HOFL will reimburse you for those fees up to $7,500, unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, HOFL will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous

    A. A description of the copyrighted work that you claim is being infringed;

    B.A description of the material you claim is infringing and that you want removed or access to which you want disabled and the URL or other location (with sufficient detail) of that material;

    C.Your name, address, telephone number, and email address;

    D.The following statement: “I have a good faith belief that the use of the copyrighted material I am complaining of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law (e.g., as a fair use)”;

    E.The following statement: “The information in this notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, I am the owner, or authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of the copyright or of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed”; and

    F.An electronic or physical signature of the owner of the copyright or a person authorized to act on the owner’s behalf.

    We may forward the take-down notification to the accused infringer. We may, at our discretion, disable or terminate the accounts of users who may be repeat infringers. This process does not limit our ability to pursue any other remedies we may have to address suspected infringement.
