Dispute Resolution & Arbitration Agreement

This is a binding legal agreement (“Agreement”) between you (either an individual or entity) and Company. Use of the Site or Application or retention of the Site or Application constitutes acceptance of this Agreement, regardless of whether you are the original purchaser, user, or other recipient of the Site or Application.

You and Company each agree that, subject to Company’s right to apply for injunctive remedies, all disputes between you and Company relating in any way to or arising in any way from the use, sale, condition or performance of the Site or Application shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, and not by a court or jury. Any such dispute shall not be combined or consolidated with a dispute involving any other person’s or entity’s claim, and specifically, without limitation of the foregoing, shall not under any circumstances proceed as part of a class action. The arbitration shall be conducted before a single arbitrator, whose award may not exceed, in form or amount, the relief allowed by the applicable law.

The arbitration shall be conducted according to the American Arbitration Association (AAA) Commercial Arbitration Rules applicable to consumer disputes. The AAA Rules are available online at or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. This Agreement is entered into pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. The laws of the State of New York, without reference to its choice of law principles, shall govern the interpretation of the Agreement and all disputes that are subject to this Agreement. The arbitrator shall decide all issues of interpretation and application of this Agreement.

For any arbitration in which your total damage claims, exclusive of attorney fees and expert witness fees, are $5,000.00 or less (“Small Claim”), the arbitrator may, if you prevail, award your reasonable attorney fees, expert witness fees and costs as part of any award, but may not grant Company its attorney fees, expert witness fees or costs unless it is determined that the claim was brought in bad faith. In a Small Claim case, you shall be required to pay no more than half of the total administrative, facility and arbitrator fees, or $50.00 of such fees, whichever is less, and Company shall pay the remainder of such fees. Administrative, facility and arbitrator fees for arbitrations in which your total damage claims, exclusive of attorney fees and expert witness fees, exceed $5,000.00 (“Large Claim”) shall be determined according to AAA rules. In a Large Claim case, the arbitrator may grant to the prevailing party, or apportion among the parties, reasonable attorney fees, expert witness fees and costs to the extent allowed by the applicable law. Judgment may be entered on the arbitrator’s award in any court of competent jurisdiction.

This Agreement also applies to claims against Company’s employees, representatives, parents, and other affiliates if any such claim relates to or arises from the Site or Application’s use, sale, condition or performance.

You may opt out of this Agreement by providing notice to Company no later than 30 calendar days from the date of the first consumer purchaser’s purchase or use of the Site or Application. To opt out, you must send notice by e-mail to, with the subject line: “Arbitration Opt Out.” You must include in the opt out e-mail (a) your name and address; (b) the date on which the Site or Application was first used or purchased; (c) the device model name or model number; and (d) the IMEI or MEID or Serial Number, as applicable, if you have it.

Alternatively, you may opt out by calling 1-800-SAMSUNG (726-7864) no later than 30 calendar days from the date of the first consumer purchaser’s purchase or use of the Site or Application and providing the same information. These are the only two forms of notice that will be effective to opt out of this Agreement. Opting out of this Agreement will not affect in any way the benefits to which you would otherwise be entitled, including the benefits of use of the Site or Application.

Submission Policy

Company is pleased to hear from its users and welcomes your comments regarding its services and products, and may from time to time request certain feedback or material from you, such as on message boards or in connection with Materials (“Solicited Submissions”). Nevertheless, Company's long-standing policy does not allow it to accept or consider creative ideas, designs, photographs, drawings, or original artwork, suggestions for new products or product improvements, suggestions for technologies, methods, techniques, processes, inventions, marketing plans, or any materials other than those it has specifically requested (see below) (“Unsolicited Submissions”).

We hope you will understand that it is the intent of this policy to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings when projects developed by Company’s or its affiliates' professional staff might seem to others to be similar to their own creative work. Accordingly, we ask that you do not send us any Unsolicited Submissions. Both Solicited and Unsolicited Submissions (collectively “Submissions”) will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary in each instance.

None of the Submissions shall be subject to any obligation of confidence on the part of Company, and Company shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Submissions. Any Submission may be used by Company without restriction for any purpose whatsoever, including, without limitation, reproduction, disclosure, transmission, publication, broadcast or posting, and you hereby irrevocably waive, release and give up any claim that any use of such Submission violates any of your rights, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, patents, moral rights, privacy rights, proprietary or other property rights, publicity rights, or right to credit for the material or ideas.

By making a Submission, you represent that such Submission is original with you and does not violate or infringe upon the rights of any third parties, including, without limitation, any intellectual property rights and rights of publicity and/or privacy.

All Submissions shall be the sole property of Company or its affiliates and will not be acknowledged or returned. You agree and understand that Company is not obligated to use any Submission you make and you have no right to compel such use. You hereby acknowledge and agree that your relationship with Company is not a confidential, fiduciary, or other special relationship, and that your decision to submit any material to Company does not place Company in a position that is any different from the position held by members of the general public with regard to your Submission. You understand and acknowledge that Company has wide access to ideas, stories, designs, and other literary materials, and that new ideas are constantly being submitted to it or being developed by Company's own employees. Many ideas or stories may be competitive with, similar or identical to your Submission in theme, idea, plot, format or other respects.

Finally, you acknowledge that, with respect to any claim you may have relating to or arising out of a Company's actual or alleged exploitation or use of any material you submit, the damage, if any, thereby caused will not be irreparable or otherwise sufficient to entitle you to injunctive or other equitable relief or to in any way enjoin the production, distribution, exhibition or other exploitation of any production based on or allegedly based on the material, and your rights and remedies in any such event shall be strictly limited to the right to recover damages, if any, in an action at law.
