YOU AND WE EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY DISPUTE, CLAIM, OR CONTROVERSY RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE TERMS, YOUR USE OF THE SITE, OR PRODUCTS OR SERVICES SOLD, DISTRIBUTED, ISSUED, OR SERVICED BY OR THROUGH US—IRRESPECTIVE OF WHEN THAT DISPUTE, CLAIM, OR CONTROVERSY AROSE—WILL BE RESOLVED SOLELY BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AS SET FORTH IN THE TERMS, RATHER THAN IN COURT. YOU AND WE THEREBY EACH AGREE TO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, AND AGREE THAT YOU AND WE MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST EACH OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
Exceptions. The arbitration agreement and class action waiver set forth in this section shall be subject to these limited exceptions:
You may assert claims in small claims court if your claims apply.
Informal Dispute Resolution. You and we each recognize and agree that good faith, informal efforts to resolve disputes often result in prompt, low-cost, and mutually beneficial outcomes. Therefore, you and we each agree that, before either of us may commence an arbitration or assert a claim in small claims court, you and we will engage in the following informal dispute resolution process:
Governing Law; Interpretation and Enforcement. The arbitration agreement in the Terms is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq.) (“FAA”), including its procedural provisions, in all respects. This means that the FAA governs, among other things, the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration agreement and all of its provisions, including, without limitation, the class action waiver. State arbitration laws do not govern in any respect. Further, you and we each agree that the Terms evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce, and will be governed by and construed in accordance with federal law to the fullest extent possible.
Arbitration Generally; Relief Available. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited pursuant to the FAA. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the Terms as a court would. For the avoidance of doubt, the arbitrator can award public injunctive relief if authorized by law and warranted by the individual claim(s).
Arbitration Proceedings and Rules. The following rules and procedures shall apply:
In the event that New Era ADR is unable to conduct the arbitration for any reason, the arbitration will be conducted by FairClaims pursuant to its FastTrack Rules & Procedures, and/or any applicable rules for consumer arbitrations, available at www.fairclaims.com. In the event that FairClaims is unable to conduct the arbitration for any reason, you and we will mutually select an alternative arbitration provider, and the arbitration will be conducted pursuant to that provider’s applicable rules. If, pursuant to this paragraph, the arbitration is conducted by an arbitration provider other than New Era ADR, references to New Era ADR and its rules in the Terms shall be construed as references to that arbitration provider and its applicable rules.
Commencing an Arbitration. A party who has complied with the informal dispute resolution provisions described above, and who wishes to start arbitration, must submit a Demand for Arbitration and a copy of the Terms to New Era ADR at app.neweraadr.com, and must also give notice to the other party. If the notice is being sent to us, it must be emailed to Live Nation Entertainment, Inc. at firstname.lastname@example.org. If the notice is being sent to you, it will be sent to the email address associated with your Live Nation or Ticketmaster account.
Arbitration Fees and Costs. If you commence an arbitration in accordance with the Terms, you will be required to pay New Era ADR’s $300 filing fee. You will not be responsible for paying any other fees for the arbitration, other than the filing fee; all other fees or expenses charged by New Era ADR will be paid by us (unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose). Further, if New Era ADR determines that you are unable to pay any part of the filing fee, we will pay that part too.
In the event that the arbitration is conducted by a different arbitration provider in accordance with the Terms, payment of any filing, administration, or arbitrator fees shall be governed by that provider’s rules.
You and we each agree that New Era ADR, FairClaims, JAMS, and any other arbitration provider selected pursuant to the Terms has discretion to modify the amount or timing of any fees due under any applicable rules or fee schedules, and further agree not to oppose any modifications to the timing or amount of any fees due—provided that such modifications do not increase the fees to either you or us.
Attorneys’ Fees. You are responsible for your own attorneys’ fees; we will not pay any attorneys’ fees unless ordered to do so by the arbitrator. For the avoidance of doubt, in cases where a statute gives you the right to recover attorneys’ fees if you prevail, the arbitrator may award attorneys’ fees pursuant to that statute.
Delegation; Interpretation. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to the extent permitted by law to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this Agreement, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable; however, in the event of a dispute about which particular version of this Agreement you agreed to, a court will decide that specific question. This arbitration agreement is intended to be broadly interpreted and will survive termination of the Terms.
Limited Right to Appeal. As explained above, court review of the arbitrator’s decision is limited pursuant to the FAA; however, the Terms provide a limited right to appeal the arbitrator’s decision to a panel of JAMS arbitrators, as set forth in this sub-section. Specifically, in the event that the arbitrator awards injunctive relief against either you or us, the party against whom injunctive relief was awarded may—within 21 days of the arbitrator’s final decision—appeal that decision to JAMS, in accordance with the following procedure:
Special Provision Regarding Resale Tickets for Events Located in Illinois. Solely for the purpose of complying with the Illinois Ticket Sale and Resale Act, 815 ILCS 414/1.5 et seq., if your dispute regards the resale of a ticket for any event located in the State of Illinois, then the following applies: You may submit any complaint you may have to New Era ADR as an arbitration demand, in accordance with the rules and procedures outlined in this section, and any such claims shall be decided by an independent arbitrator in accordance with the Terms. Without waiving the agreement to arbitrate or any other terms in this section, you also agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the State of Illinois for any complaints involving a ticketed event held in Illinois. For the sake of clarity, your agreement to submit to the jurisdiction of the State of Illinois for any complaint involving a ticketed event held in Illinois does not in any way waive your and our agreement to arbitrate, or the scope of arbitration, but simply means that—for any court proceeding that may take place in conjunction with an arbitration (e.g., a motion to enforce an arbitration award), or in the event the arbitration agreement is held unenforceable—you agree to submit to jurisdiction in Illinois. If you have an inquiry regarding a ticket resale transaction made for any event located in Illinois, please contact us at 550 W. Van Buren Street, 13th Floor, Chicago, Illinois 60607 or (877) 446-9450.
