AGREEMENT TO MEDIATE/ARBITRATE
This Agreement to Mediate/Arbitrate affects your legal rights. Please read carefully. Unless you opt out
by sending written notification to MMTP, Attention: Kevin Grams at 444 Hartland Oak Drive, Rapidan, VA
22733. This Agreement to Mediate and Arbitrate will eliminate your right to go to court (except for a
small claims court having jurisdiction), the right to bring class or collective actions, and the right to have
a jury decide a dispute.
Our Agreement: You and MMTP each agree that any and all disputes or claims that arise out of or in
any way relate to this User Agreement, your account with MMTP, your use of MMTP, or the
corresponding relationship between you, on the one hand, and MMTP, its agents, employees, officers,
directors, predecessors in interest, successors and assigns, on the other hand, including federal and
state statutory claims, common law claims, and those based in contract, tort, fraud, misrepresentation
or any other legal theory, shall be resolved exclusively by mediation and, if necessary, legally binding
arbitration, in accordance with the Rules of Procedure for Christian Conciliation of the Institute for
Christian Conciliation TM ; any settlement agreement or arbitration judgment may be entered in any court
otherwise having jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, MMTP may bring any claim relating to
infringement of our intellectual property rights in U.S. federal court. This Agreement to
Mediate/Arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. You acknowledge that your breach of these
terms may cause irreparable harm to MMTP, the extent of which would be difficult to ascertain.
Accordingly, you agree that, in addition to any other remedies to which MMTP may be legally entitled,
MMTP will have the right to seek immediate injunctive relief in the event of a breach of these terms by
you or any of your officers, employees, consultants, or other agents.
Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief: You and MMTP agree
that each of us may bring claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or
class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding. Unless both you and MMTP
agree otherwise, the arbitrator(s) may not consolidate or join more than one person’s or party’s claims
and may not otherwise preside over any form of a consolidated, representative or class proceeding.
Also, the arbitrator(s) may award relief (including monetary, injunctive and declaratory relief) only in
favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated
by that party’s individual claim(s). Any relief awarded cannot affect other MMTP users.
All parties agree that mediation set forth based on Rules of Procedure for Christian Conciliation of the
Institute for Christian Conciliation is required to resolve any dispute but if mediation is not able to
resolve the conflict and it is referred to arbitration, the arbitrator(s) will decide the substance of all
claims in accordance with applicable law, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all
claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator(s) shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations
involving different MMTP users (whether Individuals, Organizations or Developers), but is/are bound by
rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same MMTP user to the extent required by applicable law. The
award of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the
arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Any arbitration shall be
confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, contents or results of any arbitration,
except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award.
Severability: With the exception of any of the provisions in the Prohibition of Class and Representative
Actions and Non-Individualized Relief section above, if a court decides that any part of this Agreement
to Mediate/Arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Agreement to Mediate/Arbitrate
shall still apply. If a court decides that any of the provisions in the Prohibition of Class and
Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief section above is invalid or unenforceable, then the
entirety of this Agreement to Mediate/Arbitrate shall be null and void, but the remainder of this user
agreement will continue to apply.
