13.1.    Governing Law and Arbitration. This Agreement is governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to the conflicts of laws principles thereof.

13.2.    Scope of Arbitration Agreement. Any Dispute shall be finally resolved by binding arbitration except claims: (a) in small claims court, so long as the matter advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis; and (b) for injunctive relief arising out of the infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as a Party’s Marks or BUTLER DELIVERY IP). BUTLER DELIVERY and Merchant agree that, because both are business entities that mutually benefit from streamlined and confidential resolution, this Arbitration Agreement shall apply to all Disputes and shall be binding upon and enforceable by not only the parties, but also their affiliates, subsidiaries, and their respective owners, officers, directors, managers and employees. This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all claims that arose or were asserted before the Effective Date of this Agreement. CASES HAVE BEEN FILED AGAINST BUTLER DELIVERY—AND OTHERS MAY BE FILED IN THE FUTURE—THAT ATTEMPT TO ASSERT CLASS ACTION CLAIMS, AND BY ACCEPTING THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT YOU ELECT NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN SUCH CASES. IF YOU AGREE TO ARBITRATION WITH BUTLER DELIVERY, YOU ARE AGREEING IN ADVANCE THAT YOU WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN OR SEEK TO RECOVER MONETARY OR OTHER RELIEF IN ANY SUCH CLASS, COLLECTIVE, AND/OR REPRESENTATIVE LAWSUIT. INSTEAD, BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU MAY BRING YOUR CLAIMS AGAINST BUTLER DELIVERY IN AN INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION PROCEEDING. IF SUCCESSFUL ON SUCH CLAIMS, YOU COULD BE AWARDED MONEY OR OTHER RELIEF BY AN ARBITRATOR.

13.3.   Informal Resolution. You and BUTLER DELIVERY agree that good-faith informal efforts to resolve disputes often can result in a prompt, low-cost and mutually beneficial outcome. You and BUTLER DELIVERY therefore agree that, before either you or BUTLER DELIVERY demands arbitration against the other, we will personally meet and confer, via telephone or videoconference, in a good-faith effort to resolve informally any claim covered by this mutual Arbitration Agreement. If you are represented by counsel, your counsel may participate in the conference, but you shall also fully participate in the conference. The party initiating the claim must give notice to the other party in writing of its, his, or her intent to initiate an informal dispute resolution conference, which shall occur within 60 days after the other party receives such notice, unless an extension is mutually agreed upon by the parties. To notify BUTLER DELIVERY that you intend to initiate an informal dispute resolution conference, email Merchant.Informal.Resolution@BUTLERDELIVERYUSA.com, providing your name, telephone number associated with your BUTLER DELIVERY account (if any), the email address associated with your BUTLER DELIVERY account, and a description of your claim. In the interval between the party receiving such notice and the informal dispute resolution conference, the parties shall be free to attempt to resolve the initiating party’s claims. Engaging in an informal dispute resolution conference is a requirement that must be fulfilled before commencing arbitration. The statute of limitations and any filing fee deadlines shall be tolled while the parties engage in the informal dispute resolution process required by this paragraph.

13.4.   Arbitration Rules and Forum. This arbitration agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act in all respects. If the rules and procedures of the Federal Arbitration Act cannot apply, the state law governing arbitration agreements in the state of the Merchant Location most closely associated with the Dispute shall apply. Before a party may begin an arbitration proceeding, that party must send notice of an intent to initiate arbitration and certifying completion of the informal dispute resolution conference pursuant to paragraph 19(b). If this notice is being sent to BUTLER DELIVERY, it must be sent by email to the counsel who represented BUTLER DELIVERY in the informal dispute resolution process, or if there was no such counsel then by mail to General Counsel, at 303 2nd Street, South Tower, Suite 800, San Francisco, CA 94107. The arbitration will be conducted by ADR Services, Inc. pursuant to the most current version of its rules available at https://www.adrservices.com/services/arbitration-rules/ and pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. In the event of a conflict between the two, the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement shall supersede any and all conflicting arbitration administrator’s rules or procedures. Arbitration demands filed with ADR Services, Inc. must include (1) the name, telephone number, mailing address, and e-mail address of the party seeking arbitration; (2) a statement of the legal claims being asserted and the factual bases of those claims; (3) a description of the remedy sought and an accurate, good-faith calculation of the amount in controversy, enumerated in United States Dollars (any request for injunctive relief or attorneys’ fees shall not count toward the calculation of the amount in controversy unless such injunctive relief seeks the payment of money); and (4) the signature of the party seeking arbitration. The fees that shall apply to arbitrations administered by ADR Services, Inc. are set forth on ADR Services, Inc.’s website, available as of June 23, 2022 at https://www.adrservices.com/rate-fee-schedule/. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitration fees will be governed by ADR Services, Inc.’s General Fee Schedule and ADR Services, Inc.’s rules. However, if required by law, BUTLER DELIVERY will pay the portion of the initial case opening fees (if any) that exceeds the filing fee to file the case in a court of competent jurisdiction embracing the location of the arbitration. If ADR Services, Inc. is not available to arbitrate, the parties will mutually select an alternative arbitral forum. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, video conference, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location. To the extent there is a dispute over which arbitration provider shall administer the arbitration, only a court (and not an arbitrator or arbitration administrator) can resolve that dispute, and the arbitration shall be stayed until the court resolves that dispute. The parties agree that all of the arbitration proceedings, including any discovery, hearings, and rulings, shall be confidential to the fullest extent permitted by law. If at any time the arbitrator or arbitration administrator fails to enforce the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, either party may seek to enjoin the arbitration proceeding in court, and the arbitration shall automatically be stayed pending the outcome of that proceeding.

13.5.   Arbitration Appeal. If the arbitration award includes any injunction or a monetary award that exceeds $100,000, then either party shall have the right to appeal that award to an arbitration appellate panel. The notice of appeal must be served, in writing, on the opposing party within fourteen (14) days after the award has become final. ADR Services shall administer the appeal consistent with the JAMS Optional Arbitration Appeal Procedures, available as of June 23, 2022 at https://www.jamsadr.com/appeal/.

13.6.   Arbitrator Powers. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable, except with respect to the Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions, the enforceability of which can only be determined by a court. All disputes regarding the payment of arbitrator or arbitration-organization fees including the timing of such payments and remedies for nonpayment, shall be determined exclusively by an arbitrator, and not by any court or arbitration administrator. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and BUTLER DELIVERY. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other proceedings or parties. The arbitrator will have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim or dispute. The arbitrator will have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and this Agreement (including this Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator will issue a written statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which any award (or decision not to render an award) is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator shall follow the applicable law. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The arbitrator’s decision is final and binding on you and BUTLER DELIVERY subject to Section 13.5.

13.7.   Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND BUTLER DELIVERY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND RECEIVE A JUDGE OR JURY TRIAL. You and BUTLER DELIVERY are instead electing to have all Disputes resolved by arbitration, except as specified in Section 13.2 above. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited.

13.8.   Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions; Severability. YOU AND BUTLER DELIVERY AGREE TO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO RESOLVE CLAIMS WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT ON A CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR REPRESENTATIVE BASIS. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS. CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE MERCHANT CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If, however, this waiver of class, consolidated, and representative actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable with respect to a particular claim or dispute, neither you nor BUTLER DELIVERY is entitled to arbitration of such claim or dispute. Instead, all such claims and disputes will then be resolved in a court as set forth in Section 14.1, after the conclusion of the arbitration of any arbitrable claims, and all other provisions of this Section 13 (Dispute Resolution) shall remain in force. The parties also waive the right to bring any claims for public injunctive relief. If, however, this waiver of public injunctive relief claims is deemed invalid or unenforceable with respect to a particular claim or dispute, then all such claims and disputes will then be resolved in arbitration. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement, any claim that all or part of this Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions is unenforceable, unconscionable, void or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. If any provision of this Section 13 is adjudged to be void or otherwise unenforceable, in whole or in part, the void or unenforceable provision shall be severed and such adjudication shall not affect the validity of the remainder of this Section 13. Nothing in this provision shall prevent you or BUTLER DELIVERY from participating in a class-wide, collective, or representative settlement of claims.

13.9.   Opt Out. BUTLER DELIVERY’s updates to these Terms of Service do not provide a new opportunity to opt out of the Arbitration Agreement if you had previously agreed to a version of BUTLER DELIVERY’s Terms of Service and did not validly opt out of arbitration. BUTLER DELIVERY will continue to honor the valid opt outs of merchants who validly opted out of the Arbitration Agreement in a prior version of the Terms of Service. If you create a BUTLER DELIVERY account for the first time on or after June 23, 2022, you may opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you do so, neither you nor BUTLER DELIVERY can force the other to arbitrate as a result of this Agreement. To opt out, you must notify BUTLER DELIVERY in writing of your intention to opt out by sending a letter, by First Class Mail, to BUTLER DELIVERY, Inc., 303 2nd Street, South Tower, Suite 800, San Francisco, CA 94107. Any attempt to opt out by email will be ineffective. To be effective, your opt-out notice must be postmarked by the later of 30 days after this Terms of Service update or 30 days after your first order on the Platform. Your notice must include your name and address, your BUTLER DELIVERY username (if any), the email address you used to set up your BUTLER DELIVERY account (if you have one), and a CLEAR statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. The letter may opt out, at most, only one merchant, and letters that purport to opt out multiple merchants will not be effective as to any. No merchant (or his or her agent or representative) may effectuate an opt out on behalf of other persons. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may have entered into with us or may enter into in the future with us. 

13.10.   Survival. This Arbitration Agreement will survive any termination of your relationship with BUTLER DELIVERY.

13.11.  Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in the Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if BUTLER DELIVERY makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, it will not apply to any individual claim(s) that you had already provided notice of to BUTLER DELIVERY.

 

14.     MISCELLANEOUS.

14.1.    Litigation Class Action Waiver. To the extent allowed by Law, separate and apart from the Arbitration Agreement found in Section 13, Merchant agrees that any proceeding to litigate in court any Dispute, whether because Merchant opted out of the Arbitration Agreement or any other reason, will be conducted solely on an individual basis, and Merchant agrees not to seek to have any controversy, claim or Dispute heard as a class action, a representative action, a collective action, a private attorney-general action, or in any proceeding in which Merchant acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity (“Litigation Class Action Waiver”) . Merchant further agrees that no proceeding will be joined, consolidated, or combined with another proceeding, without the prior written consent of all Parties to any such proceeding. The enforceability of this Litigation Class Action Waiver shall only be determined by a court of competent jurisdiction. If a court of competent jurisdiction determines that all or part of this Litigation Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable with respect to a particular claim or Dispute, then all such claims or Disputes will be resolved in court, after the conclusion of the arbitration of any arbitrable claims or Disputes, and the remainder of this Arbitration Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.

14.2.    Relationship of the Parties. Notwithstanding any provision herein to the contrary, each Party is an independent contractor with respect to its performance of its obligations hereunder.

Neither Party has any right or authority to incur obligations of any kind in the name of, or for the account of, the other Party nor to commit or bind the other Party to any contract or other obligation. Under no circumstances is either Party considered to be, nor will either Party hold itself out as, an employee, agent, franchisee, or joint venturer of the other Party.

14.7.    No Waiver. No amendment to, or waiver of, any provision of this Agreement will be effective unless in writing and signed by both Parties. The waiver by any Party of any breach or default will not constitute a waiver of any different or subsequent breach or default.

14.8.    Assignment. Neither Party may assign this Agreement, or any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement, without the prior written consent of the other Party, which consent may not be unreasonably withheld, and any attempted assignment without such consent will be void; provided that either Party may assign this Agreement without such consent, to an Affiliate, or in connection with any merger, consolidation, sale of all or substantially all of the assigning Party’s assets, or any other similar transaction. Subject to the foregoing in this Section 14.8, this Agreement will be binding upon, and inure to the benefit of, the permitted successors and assigns of each Party. This Agreement will not confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than the Parties, their respective successors, and permitted assigns.

14.9.    Enforcement. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability will not affect any other provisions of this Agreement, and this Agreement will be construed as if such invalid, illegal, or unenforceable provision had never been contained herein.
