5.2. Mandatory Arbitration.
THIS SECTION AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS, PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE AGREEING TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE BY USING THE FLEX SERVICE OR THE WEBSITE. Except as explicitly provided in this Agreement, any dispute or claim relating in any way to your visit to the Website, your use of the Flex Services, a product offered or provided by or through the Website or Service, or otherwise arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the Services that cannot be resolved directly between you and Flex shall be resolved by non-appearance based binding arbitration, rather than in court. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, this includes any claims based in contract, statute, tort, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this Agreement. There is no judge or jury in arbitration and court review of an arbitration award is limited, but an arbitrator can award an individual the same damages and relief as a court and must apply and follow the terms of this Agreement as a court would. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL.
Either you or we can initiate arbitration through the alternative dispute resolution provider the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) pursuant to the then-current Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (the “Consumer Rules”), both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. If such costs are determined by the arbitrator to be excessive, Flex will pay all arbitration fees and expenses.
The arbitration shall be conducted by telephone or electronic means and/or shall be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner of which shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless the arbitrator determines that an in-person hearing is necessary based on the request of one of the parties and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator shall be final and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. You and Flex each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial and agree to proceed only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, or representative action. The parties hereby appoint the arbitrator the exclusive power to rule on any challenges to the requirement for the use of alternative dispute resolution process in these terms.
We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to obtain interim or preliminary injunctive relief necessary to protect the rights or property of you or Flex and all of its partners, affiliates, shareholders, employees, and agents of any kind (together, our “Affiliates”).
Except as explicitly provided elsewhere in this Agreement, all claims you bring against Flex must be resolved in accordance with this Section. Any claim filed or brought contrary to this Section shall be considered improperly filed. Should you file a claim contrary to this Section, Flex may recover from you attorneys’ fees and costs up to $1,500 per claim, provided that Flex first has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.
You and Flex agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the dispute between Flex and you individually. To the fullest extent permitted by law, (1) no arbitration shall be joined with any other; (2) there is no right or authority for any dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (3) there is no right or authority for any dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.
5.4. Exceptions to Informal Negotiations and Arbitration.
You and Flex agree that the following disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (1) any disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or Flex’s intellectual property rights; and (2) any claim for injunctive relief.

These Terms of Service cannot be changed or modified by you except as posted on the Services by Flex. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable, the unenforceable term or provision shall be replaced by an enforceable term or provision that comes closest to the intention underlying the unenforceable term or provision and the remaining provisions shall be enforced. To the extent that anything in or associated with the Services is in conflict or inconsistent with this Agreement, this Agreement shall take precedence. The laws of the State of Delaware govern your access to, and use of, the Services and the terms of this Agreement.

- Definitions: Electronic Fund Transfer: Any transfer of funds, other than a transaction originated by check, draft or similar paper instrument, that is initiated through an electronic device or computer to instruct us to debit or credit an account. Electronic Fund Transfers include such electronic transactions as direct deposits or withdrawals of funds, transfers initiated via telephone, website or mobile application. Preauthorized Electronic Fund Transfer: An Electronic Fund Transfer that you have authorized in advance to recur at substantially regular intervals; for example, direct deposits into or withdrawal of funds out of your account.

- Legal Effect.
Your consent to this E-Sign Consent means that Disclosures Flex provide to you electronically shall have the same meaning and effect as if provided in paper form. A text message or email alerting you that Disclosures are available electronically, provided that the Disclosures are made available online shall have the same meaning and effect as if Flex had provided those Disclosures to you in paper form, regardless of whether you actually view those Disclosures, unless you have withdrawn your consent pursuant to Section 3, above, prior to receiving such Disclosures.
You agree that Flex may modify or change the methods of disclosure described herein, and that Flex may send you Disclosures in paper form at its option. You can obtain a paper copy of an electronic Disclosure at no charge, provided that such request is made within a reasonable time after we first provided the electronic Disclosure to you. To request a paper copy of a Disclosure, email email@example.com.
You also agree that Flex is not responsible for any delay or failure in your receipt of any text message or email notice that is not caused by Flex’s failure to send such a notice to the phone number or email address you have provided for that purpose.
