12. ARBITRATION OF CLAIMS
PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. WE WANT YOU TO KNOW IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
At Tubi, we expect that our world-class customer service team will be able to resolve most issues you may have using the Tubi Services. In the unlikely event that we do not meet your satisfaction, we prefer to specify now what each of us should expect in order to avoid any confusion later. Accordingly, you and Tubi agree to the following resolution process.
Because we prefer to resolve our issues with you directly, you agree to arbitrate with Tubi only in your individual capacity, not as a representative or member of a class. As such, your claims may not be joined with any other claims and there shall be no authority for any dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or brought by a purported class representative.
Rather than force everyone to visit us in California, if you can demonstrate that arbitration in California would create an undue burden to you, you are free to initiate the arbitration in your home state. Otherwise, the arbitration hearings will be held in San Francisco County, California.
It is important that you understand that the arbitrator's decision will be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. If the arbitrator rules against Tubi, in addition to accepting whatever responsibility is ordered by the arbitrator, we think it's fair that Tubi reimburse your reasonable attorneys' fees and costs.
If you're not sure what all of this means, of course please feel free to ask an attorney.
Since we always prefer to find ways to satisfy you as quickly and efficiently as possible, before initiating any arbitration proceeding, you agree to first discuss the matter informally with Tubi for at least 30 days. To do that, please send your full name and contact information, your concern and your proposed solution by mail to us at: Tubi, 560 Mission Street, Suite 1301, San Francisco, CA 94105 - Attn: Legal Department.
Specifying what happens if an issue arises with one of our users is never a fun topic. But we pride ourselves on transparency and we thank you in advance for understanding why it’s important that you and Tubi agree on the process described in this Section.
