12.2 If you reside in the United States, you agree to resolve your disputes with AGSLUS as specified in Clause 13.

This means that you as a consumer have the right to bring an action either in the State of New York (United States) or at your place of residence. AGSLUS may only initiate legal proceedings against consumers before the courts in their place of residence.
12.3 If you are a consumer residing in the European Union, please note that we do not (and are not legally obliged to) participate in any alternative dispute resolution (ADR) procedures or services, unless otherwise (i) specified in the country-specific additional provisions below, and/or (ii) provided by law.
13. Legal Disputes
13.1 If you reside in the United States or Canada, You and AGSLUS each agree, except where prohibited by law, that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and AGSLUS relating in any way to or arising out of this or previous versions of the User Agreement (including this Agreement to Arbitrate, as the term is defined below) or the breach or validity thereof, your use of or access to the Site or Services, or related passes sold or purchased through the Site or Services shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules (“Rules”), rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis (together with subsections 22(A)-(F), the “Agreement to Arbitrate”). This Agreement to Arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate.
- Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief
- Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions
EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW, YOU AND AGSLUS AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, OR REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND AGSLUS AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR SHALL NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS, AND SHALL NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING.
2. Non-Individualized Relief
YOU AND AGSLUS AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER USERS OR THE GENERAL PUBLIC. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then subject to your and AGSLUS’s right to appeal the court’s decision, that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court. All other claims will be arbitrated.
B. Arbitration Procedures
Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual; and an arbitrator must also follow the terms of the User Agreement, as a court would.
All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to arbitrability, the scope or enforceability of this Agreement to Arbitrate, or the interpretation of Section 1 of this Agreement to Arbitrate (“Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief”), shall be for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement to Arbitrate, any part of it, or of the User Agreement including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of this Agreement to Arbitrate or the User Agreement is void or voidable.
The arbitration will be conducted by the AAA under the Rules, as modified by this Agreement to Arbitrate. The Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The language of the arbitration shall be English.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a completed form Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). You may download a form Notice. A Notice to AGSLUS should be sent to LIBERTAS 5775 LLC , 188 Grand Street, New York, NY 10013 United States. AGSLUS will send any Notice to you to the physical address we have on file associated with your AGSLUS account; it is your responsibility to keep your physical address up to date. All information called for in the Notice must be provided, including a description of the nature and basis of the claims the party is asserting and the relief sought.
If you and AGSLUS are unable to resolve the claims described in the Notice within 30 days after the Notice is sent, you or AGSLUS may initiate arbitration proceedings pursuant to the Rules. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA’s website at www.adr.org. In addition to filing this form with the AAA in accordance with its rules and procedures, the party initiating the arbitration must mail a copy of the completed form to the opposing party. You may send a copy to AGSLUS at the following address: LIBERTAS 5775 LLC , 188 Grand Street, New York, NY 10013 United States. In the event AGSLUS initiates arbitration against you, it will send a copy of the completed form to the physical address we have on file associated with your AGSLUS account. Any settlement offer made by you or AGSLUS shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator. The arbitration shall be held in the county in which you reside or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or AGSLUS may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and AGSLUS subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. In cases where an in-person hearing is held, you and/or AGSLUS may attend by telephone, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.
The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different AGSLUS users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same AGSLUS user to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
C. Costs of Arbitration
Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the Rules, unless otherwise stated in this Agreement to Arbitrate. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, at your request, AGSLUS will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration. Any request for payment of fees by AGSLUS should be submitted by mail to the AAA along with your Demand for Arbitration and AGSLUS will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to the AAA. If the value of the relief sought is more than $10,000 and you are able to demonstrate that the costs of accessing arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of accessing a court for purposes of pursuing litigation on an individual basis, AGSLUS will pay as much of the filing, administration, and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the costs of accessing arbitration from being prohibitive. If (a) you willfully fail to comply with the Notice of Dispute requirement discussed in subsection 22(B) above, or (b) in the event the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration to be frivolous, you agree to reimburse AGSLUS for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by AGSLUS on your behalf that you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the Rules.
With the exception of any of the provisions in subsection A.1 of this Agreement to Arbitrate (“Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions”), if an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this Agreement to Arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall still apply. If an arbitrator or court decides that subsection A.1 of this Agreement to Arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, then if AGSLUS so elects, the entirety of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall be null and void. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of the provisions in subsection A.2 of this Agreement to Arbitrate (“Non-Individualized Relief”) as to a particular claim for relief, then subject to your and AGSLUS’s right to appeal the court’s decision, that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and litigated in in court. All other claims and disputes subject to arbitration under this Agreement to Arbitrate, including any and all claims for monetary damages of any kind, shall be arbitrated.
E. Opt-Out Procedure
You can choose to reject this Agreement to Arbitrate (‘opt out’) by mailing us a written opt-out notice (‘Opt-Out Notice’). The Opt-Out Notice must be postmarked no later than 30 days after the date you accept the User Agreement for the first time. You must mail the Opt-Out Notice to LIBERTAS 5775 LLC, 188 Grand Street, New York, Unit #384, NY 10013, United States.
For your convenience, we are providing an Opt-Out Notice form you must complete and mail to opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate. You must complete the Opt-Out Notice form by providing the information called for in the form, including your name, address (including street number and address, city, state, and zip code), phone number and the email address(es) used to log in to the AGSLUS account(s) to which the opt-out applies. You must sign the Opt-Out Notice for it to be effective. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate. If you opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate, all other parts of the User Agreement, including all other provisions of Section 9 ‘Disputes with AGSLUS’, will continue to apply. Opting out of this Agreement to Arbitrate has no effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may have with us.
F. Future Amendments to the Agreement to Arbitrate
Notwithstanding any provision in the User Agreement to the contrary, you and AGSLUS agree that if we make any amendment to this Agreement to Arbitrate (other than a change to any notice address or website link provided herein) in the future, that amendment shall not apply to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding between you and AGSLUS prior to the effective date of the change. The amendment shall apply to all other disputes or claims governed by the Agreement to Arbitrate that have arisen or may arise between you and AGSLUS. We will notify you of amendments to this Agreement to Arbitrate by posting the amended terms on https://www.agslrs.com at least thirty (30) days before the effective date of the amendments and by sending notice via email to your email address on file with us.

13.2 If you reside outside of the United States or Canada and a dispute arises between you and AGSLUS, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution by contacting Customer Service. For the avoidance of doubt, if you are a consumer residing in the European Union, please note that we do not (and are not legally obliged to) participate in any ADR procedures or services, unless otherwise (i) specified in the country-specific additional provisions below, and/or (ii) provided by law.
14. Release and Indemnification
