16. Legal Disputes
Most disputes can be easily resolved by communication, so before bringing a formal legal case, please first follow the Support matrix mentioned in the above section. If that doesn’t work and you live in the United States or Canada, your options are to go to small claims court or bring a claim in binding arbitration; you may not bring that claim in another court or participate in a non-individual class action claim against us.
This Dispute Resolution section applies only if you live in the United States or Canada.
a. Small Claims
Either of us can bring a claim in small claims court in (a) San Francisco, California, (b) the county where you live, or (c) another place we both agree on, as long as it qualifies to be brought in that court.
b. Going to Arbitration
If we can’t resolve our dispute amicably, you and PL agree to resolve any claims related to these Terms through final and binding arbitration, regardless of the type of claim or legal theory. If one of us brings a claim in court that should be arbitrated and the other party refuses to arbitrate it, the other party can ask a court to force us both to go to arbitration (compel arbitration). Either of us can also ask a court to halt a court proceeding while an arbitration proceeding is ongoing.
c. The Arbitration Process
Any disputes that involve a claim of less than $10,000 USD must be resolved exclusively through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. A party electing arbitration must initiate proceedings by filing an arbitration demand with the American Arbitration Association (AAA). The arbitration proceedings shall be governed by the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules, Consumer Due Process Protocol, and Supplementary Procedures for Resolution of Consumer-Related Disputes. You and we agree that the following rules will apply to the proceedings: (a) the arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online, or based solely on written submissions (at the choice of the party seeking relief); (b) the arbitration must not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses (unless we and you agree otherwise); and (c) any judgment on the arbitrator’s rendered award may be entered in any court with competent jurisdiction. Disputes that involve a claim of more than $10,000 USD must be resolved per the AAA’s rules about whether the arbitration hearing has to be in-person.
d. No Class Actions
We both agree that we can each only bring claims against the other on an individual basis. This means: (a) neither of us can bring a claim as a plaintiff or class member in a class action, consolidated action, or representative action; (b) an arbitrator can’t combine multiple people’s claims into a single case (or preside over any consolidated, class, or representative action); and (c) an arbitrator’s decision or award in one person’s case can only impact that user, not other users, and can’t be used to decide other users’ disputes. If a court decides that this “No class actions” clause isn’t enforceable or valid, then this “Dispute Resolution” section will be null and void, but the rest of the Terms will still apply.
17. Electronic Communication Policy
PL is required to provide you with certain information in writing. This Electronic Communications Policy describes how we’ll provide that information to you.
Information PL Will Send You
PL will sometimes need to send you important messages about your use of PL’s website, mobile apps, or other services (collectively, our “Services”). This policy covers all of those messages, including the terms, policies and user agreements applicable to your use of the Services, billing statements, transaction information, privacy disclosures, tax statements, and other legal documents that will be provided to you electronically (collectively, the “Electronic Communications”).
Communications Will Be Sent Electronically
Under this policy, you give your consent for PL to provide you with the Electronic Communications (including all legal terms and legally-required disclosures) electronically. You also agree that your agreement with electronic terms and disclosures has the same legal effect as if you had signed an agreement on paper. For example, if language appearing next to a button on PL’s website informs you that you will agree to certain terms by clicking the button, then your click of the button will have the same legal effect as signing an agreement on paper.
Delivery of Information
PL may provide you with Electronic Communications by (a) emailing them to you at the email address listed in your PL account, (b) posting them on the PL website or mobile applications, or (c) making them available via a website designated in an email notice to you.
Withdrawing Consent for Electronic Communications
You may withdraw your consent to receive Electronic Communications at any time by submitting a request to us at [email protected]
Note that if you withdraw your consent to receive Electronic Communications, such withdrawal will only be effective after PL has had a reasonable period of time to process your withdrawal (usually 3 months). Additionally, if you withdraw your consent to receive Electronic Communications, and PL is required to send you paper copies of communications, PL may cancel your access to the Services.
In order for PL to send you paper copies, you must have a current mailing address on file in your PL account. PL reserves the right to charge you reasonable fees to cover the costs of sending you paper copies of Electronic Communications.
Updating Your Contact Information: To ensure that you receive Electronic Communications, you should make sure that the contact information in your PL account is accurate. PL is not responsible for your failure to receive Electronic Communications if you failed to update your contact information.
18. Changes to the Terms
We may amend or update these Terms from time to time. If we believe that the changes are material, we’ll let you know by doing one (or more) of the following: (i) posting the changes on or through the Services, (ii) sending you an email or message about the changes, or (iii) posting an update in the version notes on the Apps’ platform. We encourage you to check back regularly and review any updates. Changes will be effective upon the posting of the changes unless otherwise specified. You are responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any changes. Your use of the Services following the changes constitutes your acceptance of the updated Terms.
