These changes will be effective immediately for new users of our Site. Continued use of our Site following notice of such changes shall indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such changes.
11.2 Dispute Resolution. Please read this Arbitration Agreement carefully. It is part of your contract with HealthCare.com and affects your rights. It contains procedures for MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
(a) If, for some reason, a Dispute (defined below) arises (i) between you and HealthCare.com; and/or (ii) between you and any of our Network Partners in connection with your use of the Site, you, HealthCare.com and each of HealthCare.com’s Network Partners agree to try and resolve such Dispute in good faith. If the Dispute cannot be resolved, you, HealthCare.com and/or each of HealthCare.com’s Network Partners (who have provided their separate agreement to arbitrate any Disputes) agree that we will resolve the Dispute through individual binding arbitration in a non-representative capacity.
(b) Mandatory Arbitration and Waiver of Class Action
(i) Instead of suing in court, you, HealthCare.com and each of HealthCare.com’s Network Partners are waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action or representative action. You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you, HealthCare.com and each of HealthCare.com’s Network Partners are waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action or representative action. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted and expressly includes any claims brought under or in connection with the TCPA.
(ii) In arbitration, there is no judge or jury. Instead, a neutral third-party arbitrator resolves disputes in a less formal process than in court. In arbitration, there is limited discovery and a court review of the arbitrator’s decision is limited. However, just as a court would, the arbitrator must follow the terms of the Agreement, and can award damages and relief, including attorney’s fees authorized by law.
(c) Disputes include but are not limited to any claims or controversies against each other or in any way arising out of your use of the Site or our services or the agreement between us, including our or our Network Partners use of Information provided by you, attempts made to contact you by us or our Network Partners or calls, emails, text messages or faxes you actually receive from us or our Network Partners, our policies, and contract practices and service, privacy or advertising claims, even if the claim arises after your use of the Site or the services offered on the Site has terminated. Disputes also include, but are not limited to, claims that: (a) you or an authorized or unauthorized user of the services or Site bring against our employees, agents, affiliates, or other representatives; (b) you bring against a third party, such as a Network Partner, that are based on, relate to, or arise out of in any way our services or the agreement between us, but only to the extent we are or become a named party in such dispute; or (c) that we or our Network Partners bring against you, but only to the extent we are or become a named party in such dispute. Disputes also include, but are not limited to, (i) claims in any way related to or arising out of the foregoing matters whether based in contract, tort, statute (expressly including any claims under or in connection with the TCPA), fraud, misrepresentation, advertising claims or any other legal theory; (ii) claims that arose before this Agreement or out of a prior agreement with HealthCare.com; (iii) claims that are subject to ongoing litigation where you are not a party or class member; and/or (iv) claims that arise after the termination of this agreement.
(d) Before a you, HealthCare.com or a Network Partner may seek arbitration, the party must first send the others a written notice of Dispute (a “Notice”) describing the nature and basis of the claim or Dispute and the requested relief. Any Notice to HealthCare.com should be sent to the address set forth in Section 11.7, below. You agree that HealthCare.com may forward the Notice to the relevant Network Partner. After the Notice is received, the parties may attempt to resolve the Dispute informally. If the Dispute is not resolved within thirty (30) days of the Notice, any party may initiate an arbitration.
(e) Unless you, HealthCare.com and, where relevant, any Network Partner, agree otherwise, the arbitration will be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator and will take place in the capital city of the state in which you resided at the time you used accessed the Site and/or used the services offered on the Site. The arbitration will be governed by either: (a) rules that we mutually agree upon; or (b) the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures (the “JAMS Rules”), as modified by this agreement to arbitrate, including the rules about the filing, administration, discovery and arbitrator fees. The JAMS rules are available on its website at www.jamsadr.com. Notwithstanding any JAMS Rule to the contrary or any other provision in arbitration rules chosen, by agreement, to govern the arbitration, we each agree that all issues regarding the Dispute are delegated to the arbitrator to decide, except that only a court (and not the arbitrator) shall decide any disagreements regarding the scope and enforceability of this agreement to arbitrate.
(f) The Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) applies to this agreement and this arbitration provision. We each agree that the FAA’s provisions—not state law—govern all questions of whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration. To the extent that this agreement to arbitrate conflicts with the JAMS Policy on Consumer Arbitrations Pursuant to Pre-Dispute Clauses Minimum Standards for Procedural Fairness (the “Minimum Standards”), the Minimum Standards in that regard will apply. However, nothing in this paragraph will require or allow you, HealthCare.com or a Network Partner to arbitrate on a class-wide, representative or consolidated basis.
(g) The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. YOU, HEALTHCARE.COM AND EACH NETWORK PARTNER AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PUTATIVE CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you, HealthCare.com and any applicable Network Partner expressly agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If any portion of this provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.
(h) You, HealthCare.com and any applicable Network Partner are each responsible for their respective costs, including counsel, experts, and witnesses. HealthCare.com or the applicable Network Partner will pay for any filing or case management fees associated with the arbitration and the professional fees for the arbitrator’s services.
(i) An arbitrator’s award will be a written statement of the disposition of each claim and will also provide a concise written statement of the essential findings and conclusions which form the basis of the award. The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with some limited court review under the FAA, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction.
(j) As an alternative to arbitration, we may resolve Disputes in small claims court in the county where you resided at the time you accessed the Site and/or used the services offered on the Site. In addition, this arbitration agreement does not prevent you from bringing your Dispute to the attention of any federal, state, or local government agency. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against HealthCare.com on your behalf.
(k) IF FOR ANY REASON A CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT IN ANY WAY PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN IN ARBITRATION, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE CLAIM IS AN ACTION, COUTERCLAIM OR ANY OTHER COURT PROCEEDING, WE EACH AGREE THAT TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, THERE WILL NOT BE A JURY TRIAL OR CLASS ACTION AND WE EACH UNCONDITIONALLY (1) WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY AND (2) WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE DISPUTES ON A CLASSWIDE BASIS, INCLUDING JOINING A CLAIM WITH THE CLAIM OF ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY OR ASSERTING A CLAIM IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACTITY ON BEHALF OF ANYONE ELSE IN ANY OTHER PROCEEDING.
11.3 Export. The Site may be subject to U.S. export control laws and may be subject to export or import regulations in other countries. You agree not to export, reexport, or transfer, directly or indirectly, any U.S. technical data acquired from HealthCare.com, or any products utilizing such data, in violation of the United States export laws or regulations.
11.4 Electronic Communications.

For contractual purposes, you (a) consent to receive communications from HealthCare.com in an electronic form; and (b) agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that HealthCare.com provides to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications would satisfy if they were a hardcopy in writing. The foregoing does not affect your non-waivable rights.
11.5 Entire Terms. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us regarding the use of the Site. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. The word “including” means “including without limitation”. Except as otherwise expressly set forth herein, if any provision of these Terms is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of these Terms will be unimpaired and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law. Your relationship to HealthCare.com is that of an independent contractor, and neither party is an agent or partner of the other. These Terms, and your rights and obligations herein, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated, or otherwise transferred by you without HealthCare.com’s prior written consent, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. HealthCare.com may freely assign these Terms. The terms and conditions set forth in these Terms shall be binding upon assignees.
