b. Trademarks. “CNH Industrial”, “AFS CONNECT”, as well as related product and service names, design marks and slogans, are registered trademarks of CNH or its affiliates.
c. ARBITRATION. PLEASE READ THIS PROVISION OF THE AGREEMENT CAREFULLY. UNLESS YOU SEND US THE REJECTION NOTICE DESCRIBED IN THIS PROVISION, OR OTHERWISE FALL UNDER AN EXCEPTION AS DESCRIBED BELOW, THIS PROVISION WILL APPLY TO YOU. THIS SECTION PROVIDES THAT DISPUTES UNDER THESE TERMS MAY BE RESOLVED BY EITHER YOU OR CNH THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION. ARBITRATION REPLACES THE RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, HAVE A JURY TRIAL OR INITIATE OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. IN ARBITRATION, DISPUTES ARE RESOLVED BY AN ARBITRATOR, NOT A JUDGE OR JURY. ARBITRATION PROCEDURES CAN BE SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN IN COURT. THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION IS GOVERNED BY THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT (FAA) AND SHALL BE INTERPRETED IN THE BROADEST WAY THE LAW WILL ALLOW.
As used in this arbitration provision, a "Dispute" means any claim or controversy between us that in any way arises from or relates to your participation in the Program, including, without limitation, the receipt of any offer or other Program benefit(s). Disputes will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. In addition, CNH and you each retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights.
The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement to arbitrate Disputes. There is no judge or jury in arbitration and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. The scope of discovery is usually more limited in arbitration than in court. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) and must follow these Terms.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to the CNH Legal Department, located at: Legal Department, 700 State Street, Racine WI 53404 or we must send a written notice to you at the most current address we have on file for you. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules, including the AAA's Consumer Arbitration Rules. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
CNH and you each agree that any Dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. CNH and you each hereby waive the right to participate in any class action, whether in court or arbitration. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, CNH and you each waive any right to a jury trial.
This arbitration provision shall survive changes to these Terms and termination of the Program, MyCaseIH account, AFS CONNECT account, and/or the relationship between you and us, including the bankruptcy of any party and any sale of your account, or amounts owed on your account, to another person or entity. If any part of this arbitration provision is deemed invalid or unenforceable, the other terms shall remain in force, except that there can be no arbitration of a class or representative claim. This arbitration provision may not be amended, severed or waived, except as provided in these Terms or in a written agreement between you and us.
