16. Disputes; Mandatory Arbitration.
Most disagreements can be resolved informally and efficiently by contacting our Member Services & Support at norton.com/support. If you are a U.S. visitor of the Website:
a. You and NortonLifeLock agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to your access to and use of the Website (a “Claim”) will be determined by binding arbitration or small claims court, instead of in courts of general jurisdiction.
b. Small Claims Court. Either of us can seek to have a Claim resolved in small claims court if all the requirements of the small claims court are satisfied, including any limitations on jurisdiction and the amount at issue in the dispute. Either of us may seek to have a Claim resolved in small claims court in your county of residence or in the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara.
d. Notice of Claim. If you elect to seek arbitration, you must first send to NortonLifeLock, by certified mail, a written Notice of Your Claim ("Notice of Claim"). The Notice of Claim to NortonLifeLock should be addressed to: General Counsel, NortonLifeLock Inc., 60 Rio Salado Pkwy #1000, Tempe AZ 85281, and should be prominently captioned “NOTICE OF CLAIM.” The Notice of Claim should include both the mailing address and email address You would like NortonLifeLock to use to contact you. If NortonLifeLock elects to seek arbitration, it will send, by certified mail, a written Notice of Claim to the address you provide to us in your Notice of Claim. A Notice of Claim, whether sent by you or by NortonLifeLock, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; (b) set forth the specific amount of damages or other relief sought ("Demand"); and (c) whether you reject any subsequent modification of this Section by NortonLifeLock.
f. Injunctive and Declaratory Relief. Except as provided in Section 16(b) above, the arbitrator shall determine all issues of liability on the merits of any claim asserted by you or NortonLifeLock and may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. To the extent that you or NortonLifeLock prevail on a claim and seek public injunctive relief (that is, injunctive relief that has the primary purpose and effect of prohibiting unlawful acts that threaten future injury to the public), the entitlement to and extent of such relief must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration. The parties agree that litigation of any issues of public injunctive relief shall be stayed pending the outcome of the merits of any individual claims in arbitration.
h. Class Action Waiver. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT WE EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. If you have elected arbitration, unless both you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 16 (Disputes; Mandatory Arbitration) shall be null and void.
i. Changes. If we change this Section 16 after the date you first accepted these Terms, and you have not otherwise affirmatively agreed to such changes, you may reject any such change by so stating within Your Notice of Claim. By failing to reject any changes to this Section 16 in Your Notice of Claim, you agree to resolve any Claim between you and us in accordance with the terms of the dispute resolution section in effect as of the date of Your Notice of Claim.
