Agreement to Arbitrate


You and Lumanu each agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen, or may arise, between you and Lumanu (including any disputes or claims between you and a third-party agent of Lumanu) that relate in any way to or arise out of this or previous versions of the User Agreement, your use of or access to the Services, the actions of Lumanu or its agents, or any products or services sold, offered, or purchased through the Services shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court. Alternatively, you may assert your 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. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate.

  1. Arbitration Procedures

Arbitration is more informal 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. An arbitrator should apply 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 shall be for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide.

The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its rules and procedures, including the AAA's Consumer Arbitration Rules (as applicable), as modified by this Agreement to Arbitrate. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The use of the word "arbitrator" in this provision shall not be construed to prohibit more than one arbitrator from presiding over an arbitration; rather, the AAA's rules will govern the number of arbitrators that may preside over an arbitration conducted under this Agreement to Arbitrate.

A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a completed Notice of Dispute ("Notice").  The Notice to Lumanu should be sent to Lumanu Inc., Attn: _______, 1528 Webster Street, Oakland, CA 94612. Lumanu will send any Notice to you to the physical address we have on file associated with your Lumanu 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 Lumanu are unable to resolve the claims described in the Notice within 30 days after the Notice is sent, you or Lumanu may initiate arbitration proceedings. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA's site 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.  In the event Lumanu initiates an arbitration against you, it will send a copy of the completed form to the physical address we have on file associated with your Lumanu account. Any settlement offer made by you or Lumanu shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator.

The arbitration hearing shall be held in Oakland California or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or Lumanu may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and Lumanu 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 Lumanu may attend by telephone, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.

The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable law, 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 users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same Lumanu 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.

  1. Costs of Arbitration

Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules, unless otherwise stated in this Agreement to Arbitrate. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, at your request, Lumanu will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration. Any request for payment of fees by Lumanu should be submitted by mail to the AAA along with your Demand for Arbitration and Lumanu will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to the AAA. If (a) you willfully fail to comply with the Notice of Dispute requirement discussed above, or (b) in the event the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration to be frivolous, you agree to reimburse Lumanu for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by Lumanu on your behalf that you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA's rules. 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.

Governing Law

These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to the principles of conflicts of law. You hereby expressly agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts of the State of California for the purpose of resolving any dispute relating to Your access to or use of the Service. Notwithstanding anything herein, if we elect in our sole discretion to resolve any claim through arbitration, you must cooperate fully with and be bound by such arbitration, without further recourse of any kind. 

If you are a California resident, in accordance with Cal. Civ. Code §1789.3, you may report complaints to the Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs by contacting them in writing at 400 R Street, Sacramento, CA 95814, or by telephone at (800) 952-5210.
