Binding Individual Arbitration and Class Action Waiver. Any disputes arising out of or relating to this Agreement or your participation in any of the Club Facilities, including any such dispute with Club Operator (collectively defined as “Disputes”), shall be governed by Utah law regardless of your country or state of origin or the location of any and notwithstanding any conflicts of law principles. Any Disputes shall be resolved by final and binding individual arbitration, rather than in court, and without a jury. To begin an arbitration proceeding, Member must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing its claim to the Club Operator. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules. Jurisdictional and arbitrability disputes, including disputes over the formation, existence, validity, interpretation, or scope of this Agreement, and who are proper parties to the Arbitration, shall be submitted to and ruled on by the Arbitrator. Arbitration costs and reasonable documented attorneys’ fees and costs of both parties shall be borne by the Party that ultimately loses. Member agrees that Club Operator may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where Member lives or at another location in the State of Utah that Club Operator chooses. Either Party may obtain injunctive relief (preliminary or permanent) and orders to compel arbitration or enforce arbitral awards in any court of competent jurisdiction. Each Party agrees that any dispute resolution proceeding shall be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Neither Member, Club Operator, nor any other person may pursue a Dispute in arbitration as a class action, private attorney general action, or other representative action, nor may any Dispute be pursued on Member’s behalf in any litigation in any court except as provided above. If for any reason a Dispute proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, each Party waives any right to a jury trial.
Severability. If any part of this Agreement shall be held invalid (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above), that part shall be deem excluded from this Agreement and the remainder of the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver is held invalid, the parties agree that any Dispute will be decided by arbitration and the parties agree to waive any right to a jury trial.
Entire Agreement. Member acknowledges and agrees that this Agreement and the incorporated Member Guidebook as amended and modified from time to time, constitute the entire agreement between the parties.
MEMBER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT MEMBER IS ACQUIRING A MEMBERSHIP FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF OBTAINING SOCIAL BENEFITS AND RECREATIONAL USE OF THE CLUB FACILITIES AND NOT AS AN INVESTMENT OR WITH ANY EXPECTATION OF MAKING A PROFIT FROM THE OWNERSHIP OR FUTURE TRANSFER OF THE MEMBERSHIP.
This Agreement shall not be binding unless and until the Member’s Application is approved and accepted on behalf of Club Operator as provided therein.
