This Site is controlled by bypg.com from its corporate offices in Leander, Texas, United States of America. It can be accessed from all 50 states, as well as from other countries around the world. As each of these jurisdictions have laws that may differ from the laws of the State of Texas, by accessing Site both you and bypg.com agree that the statutes and laws of Texas, without regard to the conflicts of laws principles thereof, will apply to all matters relating to use of this Site. bypg.com and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between you and bypg.com except for (i) claims seeking injunctive relief in connection with the intellectual property of bypg.com, and (ii) claims for amounts less than $10,000. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to:

  • claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between you and bypg.com, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory; 
  • claims that arose before this or any prior Agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising); 
  • claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and 
  • claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.

You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and bypg.com are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement.

A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If bypg.com and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or bypg.com may commence arbitration proceedings. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by bypg.com or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or bypg.com is entitled. 

The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration provision are for the court to decide. Unless bypg.com and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in Austin, Texas. The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. The payment of arbitration fees will be governed by the AAA rules.

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 AND BYPG.COM AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and bypg.com agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of representative or class proceedings. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.

If your claim is for $10,000 or less, you agree that any such disputes will be resolved through the courts located in Austin, Texas.
