MOST CUSTOMER CONCERNS CAN BE RESOLVEDQUICKLY AND TO THE CUSTOMER'S SATISFACTION BY CONTACTING HYUNDAI’S CUSTOMERSERVICE DEPARTMENT AT consumeraffairs@hmausa.com ORCALLING 800-633-5151. IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT THAT HYUNDAI'S CUSTOMER SERVICEDEPARTMENT IS UNABLE TO RESOLVE YOUR CONCERNS, WE EACH AGREE TO RESOLVE THOSEDISPUTES THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION OR SMALL CLAIMS COURT INSTEAD OF IN COURTSOF GENERAL JURISDICTION TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, AND SUBJECT TOTHE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. ARBITRATION IS MORE INFORMAL THAN A LAWSUIT INCOURT. ARBITRATION USES A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY, ALLOWSFOR MORE LIMITED DISCOVERY THAN IN COURT, AND IS SUBJECT TO VERY LIMITED REVIEWBY COURTS. ARBITRATORS CAN AWARD THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF THAT A COURT CANAWARD. ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUALBASIS TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW; CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONSOR REPRESENTATIVE ARBITRATIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED. HYUNDAI WILL PAY ALL ADMINISTRATIVECOSTS OF THE ARBITRATOR, NO MATTER WHO WINS, SO LONG AS YOUR CLAIM IS NOTFRIVOLOUS OR BROUGHT IN BAD FAITH. HOWEVER, IN ARBITRATION, BOTH YOU ANDHYUNDAI WILL BE ENTITLED TO RECOVER ATTORNEYS´ FEES FROM THE OTHER PARTY TO THESAME EXTENT AS YOU WOULD BE IN COURT.

 

Arbitration Agreement:

 

(a) Hyundai and you agree to arbitrateany and all disputes and claims between us arising out of or relating to thisAgreement, use of the sites, or products, services, or programs you purchase,enroll in or seek product/service support for, whether you are a Visitor orCustomer, via the sites or through mobile application, except any disputes orclaims which under governing law are not subject to arbitration, to the maximumextent permitted by applicable law. This agreement to arbitrate is intended tobe broadly interpreted and to make all disputes and claims between us subjectto arbitration to the fullest extent permitted by law. However, any dispute youor we may have relating to copyrights or other intellectual property (as setforth in Section 5 below) shall not be governed by this agreement to arbitrate.For the avoidance of doubt, this means that any claims you or we may haverelating to intellectual property rights against the other, including injunctiveand other relief sought, may be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction.The agreement to arbitrate otherwise includes, but is not limited to: 

 

claims based in contract, tort, warranty,statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; claims that arosebefore this or any prior Agreement (including, but not limited to, claimsrelating to advertising); claims that are currently the subject of purportedclass action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class;claims relating to your vehicle for which you seek product or service supportvia the sites; claims arising out of or relating to the Telephone ConsumerProtection Act; claims relating to your data privacy or information security;and claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.

 

For purposes of this arbitrationprovision, references to "Hyundai," "you," and"us" shall include our respective parent entities, subsidiaries,affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors and assigns,websites of the foregoing, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users orbeneficiaries of services, products or information provided or made availableunder this or prior Agreements between us relating to or arising from anyaspect of your use or access of the sites. Notwithstanding the foregoing,either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. You agreethat, by entering into this Agreement, you and Hyundai are each waiving theright to a trial by jury or to participate in a class or representative actionto the maximum extent permitted by law. This Agreement evidences a transactionin interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs theinterpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision. This arbitration provisionshall survive termination of this Agreement or your relationship with Hyundaifor any reason.

(b) A party who intends to seekarbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Noticeof Dispute ("Notice''). The Notice to Hyundai should be addressed to:Consumer Affairs, Hyundai Motor America, Legal Department, 10550 TalbertAvenue, Fountain Valley, CA 92728-0850. ("Notice Address''). The Noticemust describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and set forth the specificrelief you seek from Hyundai ("Demand''). If Hyundai and you do not reachan agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received,you or Hyundai may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration,the amount of any settlement offer made by Hyundai or you shall not bedisclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount,if any, to which you or Hyundai is entitled. In arbitration, and to the extentotherwise permitted by law, the parties may exchange “offers of compromise” orstipulate to judgments or awards in the same way the parties could in court,including for example, under California Code of Civil Procedure Section 998 forarbitrations taking place in California. Such offers of compromise shall havethe same force and effect as they would in a court proceeding. The arbitrationproceedings shall otherwise remain confidential, except for purposes of seekingcourt intervention (if necessary).

You may obtain more information aboutarbitration from www.adr.org

(c) After Hyundai receives notice at theNotice Address that you have commenced arbitration, it will promptly reimburseyou for your payment of the filing fee. The filing fee currently is $200, butis subject to change by the arbitration provider. The arbitration will begoverned by the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the "AAA Rules") of theAmerican Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by thisAgreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are availableonline at www.adr.org, bycalling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The AAARules may change from time to time, and you should review them periodically.

All issues are for the arbitrator todecide, including the scope and enforceability of this arbitration provision aswell as the Agreement´s other terms and conditions, and the arbitrator shallhave exclusive authority to resolve any such dispute relating to the scope andenforceability of this arbitration provision or any other term of thisAgreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of thisarbitration provision or Agreement is void or voidable. However if putativeclass or representative claims are initially brought by either party in a courtof law, and a motion to compel arbitration is brought by any party, then thecourt shall decide whether this agreement permits class proceedings. For theavoidance of doubt, the court and arbitrator shall be bound by the terms ofthis Agreement, including with regard to the class and representative waiverprovision. In any arbitration, the arbitrator shall be bound by the terms ofthis Agreement and shall follow the applicable law. The arbitrator shall nothave the power to commit manifest errors of law or legal reasoning, and anyaward rendered by the arbitrator that employs a manifest error of law or legalreasoning may be vacated or corrected by a court of competent jurisdiction forany such error. Unless Hyundai and you agree otherwise, any arbitration will begoverned by the substantive laws of your state, and hearings will take place inthe county (or parish) of your billing or registered address. Case managementand other hearings shall be heard via telephone unless otherwise agreed to.Except as otherwise provided for herein, Hyundai will pay all AAA filing,administration and arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated in accordancewith the notice requirements above. If, however, the arbitrator finds thateither the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand isfrivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards setforth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all suchfees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburseHyundai for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise yourobligation to pay under the AAA Rules.

(d) Discovery and/or the exchange ofnon-privileged information relevant to the dispute will be governed by the AAARules.

(e) YOU AND HYUNDAI AGREE THAT EACH MAYBRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOTAS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDINGTO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. If this specific subparagraph (e) isfound to be unenforceable in its entirety, then the entirety of thisarbitration provision shall be null and void. However, if only a portion ofthis subparagraph (e) is found to be unenforceable, then the unenforceableportion of the provision shall be stricken, and the remainder of subparagraph(e) enforced. Any claims or causes of action seeking relief not subject toindividual arbitration under applicable law shall be stayed in a court ofcompetent jurisdiction pending completion of individual arbitration to themaximum extent permitted by law.

(f) Notwithstanding any provision in thisAgreement to the contrary, we agree that if Hyundai makes any change to thisarbitration provision (other than a change to the Notice Address) after yourenrollment in a service or program or your use of the sites, you may reject anysuch change and require Hyundai to adhere to the language in this arbitrationprovision as written at the time of your enrollment or purchase if a disputebetween us arises, by providing Notice to Hyundai at the Notice Address insubsection (b) above.
