6. DISPUTE RESOLUTION; MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION; CLASS ARBITRATION AND COLLECTIVE ARBITRATION WAIVERS.
IF YOU FOLLOW THE PROCEDURES SET FORTH IN SECTION 6(B) BELOW, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OPT OUT OF THIS DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROVISION (EXCEPT JURY TRIAL WAIVER) WITHIN 30 DAYS OF THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THESE TERMS; PROVIDED HOWEVER IF YOU ACCESS OR USE THE SITES AFTER THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THESE TERMS, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OPT OUT OF THIS DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROVISION (EXCEPT JURY TRIAL WAIVER) WITHIN 30 DAYS OF YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS (THE “OPT-OUT PERIOD”). OTHERWISE, YOU WILL BE BOUND TO SETTLE ANY DISPUTES YOU MAY HAVE WITH COX FIRST MEDIA NETWORK THROUGH THE FOLLOWING DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEDURES.
A. YOU AND COX FIRST MEDIA NETWORK AGREE TO ARBITRATE — RATHER THAN LITIGATE IN COURT
— any and all claims, disputes, or controversies between you and Cox First Media Network, including any parents, subsidiaries, officers, directors, employees, or agents of Cox First Media Network, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, negligence, or any other intentional tort) or other legal or equitable theory (“Dispute”) that arise out of or in any way relate to these Terms, any of the Sites provided under these Terms or any other services or products that Cox First Media Network provides to you in connection with these Terms (including but not limited to amounts that Cox First Media Network charges you for services or products provided, any alleged breach related to the collection, retention or disclosure of your personal information, and any alleged violation of our Privacy Notice [LINK to main Cox First Media Network Privacy Notice]). The term “Dispute” means any and all past, present or future disputes, claims or controversies between you and Cox First Media Network, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, without limitation, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, negligence or any other intentional tort) or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes, without limitation, any such disputes, claims or controversies arising out of or relating to the validity, enforceability, interpretation and/or scope of this Dispute Resolution Section, provided, however, that the term “Dispute” does not include any such disputes, claims or controversies arising out of or relating to the validity, enforceability, interpretation and/or scope of the Class Action, Class Action Arbitration and Collective Arbitration Waivers set forth in Section 6(C) below, or whether claims to resolve any Disputes must proceed solely on an individual basis, all of which shall be decided by a Court of competent jurisdiction, and not by an arbitrator. With that sole exception which shall be broadly construed, the term “Dispute” shall be given the broadest possible meaning. You and Cox First Media Network also agree to arbitrate any and all Disputes that arise out of or relate in any way to any services or products provided to you by Cox First Media Network under any other agreement. Notwithstanding this agreement to arbitrate, you and Cox First Media Network may bring appropriate Disputes against each other in small claims court, if the Dispute falls within the small claims court’s jurisdiction.
B. Opt-Out: You may opt out of this dispute resolution provision (except for the jury trial waiver contained in Section 6(G) or the survival terms in Section 6(H)) by notifying Cox First Media Network of that intent during the Opt-Out Period by sending an email to Cox First Media Network at firstname.lastname@example.org or a letter via U.S. mail to Cox First Media Network Legal Department, Attn: Litigation Counsel, 6205-A Peachtree Dunwoody Road NE Atlanta, GA 30328 stating that you are opting out of this dispute resolution provision. Exercising this right, should you choose to do so, will not affect any of the other terms of these Terms with Cox First Media Network, and you may remain a Cox First Media Network customer. If you opt out of the dispute resolution provision, that opt out will remain in effect if Cox First Media Network modifies this section in the future or you agree to a new term of service under these Terms. If you enter into new terms with Cox First Media Network that includes a dispute resolution provision and you want to opt out of that provision, you will need to follow the instructions in that agreement for opting out.
C. “Class Action Waiver”; “Class Action Arbitration”; and “Collective Arbitration Waiver”: You and Cox First Media Network agree that all Disputes between you and Cox First Media Network will be arbitrated individually, and that there will be no class, collective, coordinated representative, or consolidated actions in arbitration (a “Class or Collective Arbitration”). You and Cox First Media Network agree that any action or agreement by you to bring claims or to participate in any claims related to a Dispute in a Class or Collective Arbitration is contrary to these Terms. A Collective Arbitration shall include, but is not limited to, any claim (i) to resolve a Dispute involving two (2) or more similar claims for arbitration filed by or on behalf of one or more claimants; (ii) which involves common questions of law or fact; (iii) which involves an agreement to cooperate or coordinate the arbitration demands being asserted against the same defendant(s); and (iv) is initiated at or near the same time. You and Cox First Media Network agree that this class action waiver and Collective Arbitration waiver shall be binding in any arbitral proceeding. No arbitrator shall have the authority to consolidate, join, or allow the coordination of more than one (1) person’s claims or to preside over a class, collective, mass, or representative proceeding in any form. No arbitrator shall have the authority to determine the enforceability of this Section 6(C). If you or Cox First Media Network brings a claim in small claims court, the class action waiver will apply, and neither of us can bring a claim on a class or representative basis. Furthermore, neither you nor Cox First Media Network may participate in a class or representative action as a class member if the class action asserts Disputes that would fall within the scope of this arbitration agreement if they were directly asserted by you or Cox First Media Network. We both agree that this class action waiver is an essential part of our arbitration agreement and that if this class action waiver is found to be unenforceable by any court then the entire arbitration agreement set forth in this Section 6 will not apply to any Dispute between you and Cox First Media Network, except for the provisions of Section 6(G) waiving the right to jury trial. This class action and collective arbitration waiver may not be severed from our arbitration agreement.
D. Arbitrator Authority: The arbitration between you and Cox First Media Network will be binding. In arbitration, there is no judge and no jury. Instead, our disputes will be resolved by an arbitrator, whose authority is governed by these Terms. You and Cox First Media Network agree that an arbitrator may only award such relief as a court of competent jurisdiction could award, limited to the same extent as a court would limit relief pursuant to these Terms. An arbitrator may award attorneys’ fees and costs if a court would be authorized to do so and may issue injunctive or declaratory relief if that relief is required or authorized by the Applicable Law (defined in Section 10(H)), but that injunctive or declaratory relief may not extend beyond you and your dealings with Cox First Media Network. Review of arbitration decisions in the courts is very limited.
E. Informal Dispute Resolution: You and Cox First Media Network agree that you will try to resolve disputes informally before resorting to arbitration. If you have a dispute, first call Cox First Media Network Customer Care at 1-888-802-6964. If a Cox First Media Network representative is unable to resolve your dispute in a timely manner, you agree to then notify Cox First Media Network of the dispute by sending a written description of your claim to Cox First Media Network Legal Department, Attn: Corporate Escalation Team, 6205-A Peachtree Dunwoody Road, Atlanta, GA 30328 so that Cox First Media Network can attempt to resolve it with you. If Cox First Media Network does not satisfactorily resolve your claim within 30 calendar days of receiving written notice to Cox First Media Network Customer Care of your claim, then you may pursue the claim in arbitration. Neither you nor Cox First Media Network may initiate arbitration without first following the informal dispute resolution procedure provided in this paragraph and thereafter, if the dispute is still not resolved, the party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other written notice of the intent to file for arbitration. If you are sending a written notice of your intent to file for arbitration to Cox First Media Network, please send such notice via U.S. mail to the Cox First Media Network Legal Department, Attn: Litigation Counsel, 6205-B Peachtree Dunwoody Road, Atlanta, GA 30328. If Cox First Media Network is sending you a written notice of our intent to file for arbitration, we will send it to the last known address of record we have on file for you.
F. Arbitration Procedures: You and Cox First Media Network agree that these Terms and the services Cox First Media Network provides to you affect interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act and not state arbitration laws applies for all Disputes. All arbitrations shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The AAA’s rules are available on its website at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. If the claim asserted in arbitration is for less than $75,000, the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules will apply. If the claim asserted is for $75,000 or more, the Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. If there is a conflict between the AAA’s rules and this dispute resolution agreement, this dispute resolution agreement shall control. To initiate arbitration, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claims to Cox First Media Network at email@example.com or via U.S. mail to Cox First Media Network Legal Department, Attn: Litigation Counsel, 6205-A Peachtree Dunwoody Road, Atlanta, GA 30328. You must also comply with the AAA’s rules regarding initiation of arbitration. Cox First Media Network will pay all filing fees and costs for commencement of arbitration, but you will be responsible for your own attorneys’ fees and costs unless otherwise determined by the arbitrator pursuant to these Terms or Applicable Law. Cox First Media Network will not seek to recover its fees and costs from you in the arbitration, even if allowed under the law, unless your claim has been determined to be frivolous. If you are successful in the arbitration, Cox First Media Network will pay your reasonable attorney’s fees and costs. If you obtain an award from the arbitrator greater than Cox First Media Network’s last written settlement offer, Cox First Media Network will pay you $5,000 in addition to what you have been awarded in the arbitration. The arbitration will be held in the county of Atlanta, Georgia and either party may appear either in person or by telephone.
G. Jury Trial Waiver: If for any reason this arbitration agreement is found to be unenforceable, or if you opt out of this dispute resolution agreement, you and Cox First Media Network expressly and knowingly WAIVE THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY. This means that a Judge rather than a Jury will decide disputes between you and Cox First Media Network if, for any reason, the arbitration agreement is not enforced.
H. Survival: This dispute resolution provision survives the termination of your use of the Sites. If you bring a claim against Cox First Media Network after termination of your use of the Sites that is based in whole or in part on events or omissions that occurred while you were using the Sites, this dispute resolution provision shall apply.

A. AS PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SITES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK AND THE SITES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS,” “AS AVAILABLE,” AND “WITH ALL FAULTS” BASIS.

8. LIMITATIONS OF OUR LIABILITY.
A. AS PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL ANY COX FIRST MEDIA NETWORK PARTIES BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, including personal injury or death or for any direct, indirect, economic, exemplary, special, punitive, incidental, or consequential losses or damages of any kind, including without limitation loss of profits, in connection with, or otherwise directly or indirectly related to, without limitation, the Sites, Content, the Cox First Media Network Licensed Elements, UGC or other Cox First Media Network products or services, except, to the extent not waivable under applicable law, for direct damages for personal injury caused by a physical product manufactured, sold or provided by Cox First Media Network.
B. The foregoing limitations of liability will apply even if any of the events or circumstances were foreseeable and even if the Cox First Media Network Parties were advised of or should have known of the possibility of such losses or damages, regardless of whether you bring an action based in contract, negligence, strict liability, or tort (including whether caused, in whole or in part, by negligence, acts of god, telecommunications failure, or destruction of the Sites).
C. AS PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL THE COX FIRST MEDIA NETWORK PARTIES’ TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU, FOR ALL POSSIBLE DAMAGES, LOSSES, AND CAUSES OF ACTION IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SITES AND YOUR RIGHTS UNDER THESE TERMS, EXCEED AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO THE AMOUNT YOU HAVE PAID COX FIRST MEDIA NETWORK IN CONNECTION WITH THE TRANSACTION(S) THAT UNDERLIE THE CLAIM(S).
D. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, THIS SECTION DOES NOT EXPAND OR LIMIT (I) ANY EXPRESS, WRITTEN PRODUCT WARRANTY OR RELATED DISCLAIMERS THAT ARE PROVIDED BY THE COX FIRST MEDIA NETWORK PARTIES OR THEIR SUPPLIERS WITH REGARD TO A PHYSICAL PRODUCT SOLD BY THE COX FIRST MEDIA NETWORK PARTIES TO YOU, OR ANY WARRANTY ON A PHYSICAL PRODUCT TO THE EXTENT REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW; (II) THE COX FIRST MEDIA NETWORK PARTIES’ LIABILITY FOR PERSONAL INJURY TO YOU CAUSED BY THE COX FIRST MEDIA NETWORK PARTIES TO THE EXTENT NOT WAIVABLE OR CANNOT BE LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW; OR (III) ANY CAUSE OF ACTION YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST THE COX FIRST MEDIA NETWORK PARTIES THAT IS NOT WAIVABLE OR CANNOT BE LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
