2. Text messaging
MAI may send you recurring, automatic “Text Messages” about an event you are registered for on behalf of the relevant campaign or organization messages. You will receive these text messages if provided your consent in one of two ways: (1) you provide MAI with your phone number when signing up for an event (2) if you provide your consent to the organization running the event and it registers you and provides MAI with your phone number. Once your consent is provided, MAI will send these informational text messages to you for all of your subsequent events until you opt out. See below for details on how to opt out.
In addition, if you provide further consent (for example, by checking the opt-in checkbox), you will receive Text Messages from MAI on behalf of other campaigns and organizations that MAI believes share similar political viewpoints, principles, objectives, or goals as you do.
a. SMS Text Program:If you subscribe to MAI’s SMS Text Program, the following terms apply:
You may receive messages even if your phone number is on a corporate, state, or national Do Not Call list or registry. Text Messages may be sent to you by Mobilize America on behalf of the campaign or organization for which you signed up to volunteer, and if you provide further consent (for example, by checking a consent box on a signup form), on behalf of other campaigns or organizations that we believe share similar political viewpoints, principles, objectives, or goals as you do. As such, if you provide further consent (for example, by checking a consent box on a signup form), then in addition to information about the event for which you signed up to volunteer, Text Messages may also include information about other volunteer opportunities that Mobilize America believes may be of interest to you. You understand that you are not required to provide such further consent to receive Text Messages as a condition of using the Site, and you can opt-out of receiving Text Messages at any time. Text STOP to stop receiving messages. For Help, text HELP or contact us at email@example.com.
Message and data rates may apply. Neither Mobilize America nor the participating carriers guarantee that Text Messages will be delivered. MAI may discontinue the program at any time without notice.
b. Short Code Program:
These Short Code Terms apply to automated Text Messages sent to you by MAI via short code 30837. Message and data rates may apply. Message frequency varies. Text "HELP" for help. Text "STOP" to cancel.
Your consent to receive Text Messages is not a condition of using the Site, and you can cancel this service at any time. Just text "STOP" to 30837. After you send the message "STOP" to us, we will send you a reply message to confirm that you have been unsubscribed. After this, you will no longer receive Text Messages from us.
If you want to join again, just sign up as you did the first time and we will start sending Text Messages to you again. If at any time you forget what keywords are supported, just text "HELP" to 30837. After you send the message "HELP" to us, we will respond with instructions on how to use our Text Messaging service as well as how to unsubscribe.

13. Binding ArbitrationWithout limiting Sections 11 or 12 above, you agree to the following:
a. Purpose. Any and all Disputes (as defined below) involving you and MAI will be resolved through individual arbitration. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and there is less discovery and appellate review than in court. This Section 13 (the "Arbitration Provision") shall be broadly interpreted. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Site Terms, this Section 13 does not apply to an action by either party to enjoin the infringement or misuse of its intellectual property rights, including copyright, trademark, patent or trade secret rights.
b. Definitions. The term "Dispute" means any claim or controversy related to the Site or the Services, including but not limited to any and all: (1) claims for relief and theories of liability, whether based in contract, tort, fraud, negligence, statute, regulation, ordinance, or otherwise; (2) claims that arose before these Site Terms or any prior agreement; (3) claims that arise after the expiration or termination of these Site Terms; and (4) claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class. As used in this Arbitration Provision, "MAI" means MAI, Inc. and any of its predecessors, successors, assigns, parents, subsidiaries and affiliated companies and each of their respective officers, directors, employees and agents, and “you” means you and any users or beneficiaries of your access to the Site or the Services.
c. Initiation of Arbitration Proceeding/Selection of Arbitrator. The party initiating the arbitration proceeding may open a case with JAMS, formerly Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc., (“JAMS”) by visiting its website (www.jamsadr.com) or calling its toll-free number (1-800-352-5267). You may deliver any required or desired notice to MAI by mail to 87-89 Fifth Avenue, Suite 701, New York, New York, 10003.
d. Right to Sue in Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding anything in this Arbitration Provision to the contrary, either you or MAI may bring an individual action in a small claims court in the area where you access the Site and the Services if the claim is not aggregated with the claim of any other person and if the amount in controversy is properly within the jurisdiction of the small claims court.
e. Arbitration Procedures. This Arbitration Provision shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. Arbitrations shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “JAMS Rules”) as modified by the version of this Arbitration Provision that is in effect when you notify MAI about your Dispute. You can obtain the JAMS Rules from JAMS by visiting its website (www.jamsadr.com) or calling its toll-free number (1-800-352-5267). If there is a conflict between this Arbitration Provision and the rest of these Site Terms, this Arbitration Provision shall govern. If there is a conflict between this Arbitration Provision and the JAMS Rules, this Arbitration Provision shall govern. If JAMS will not administer a proceeding under this Arbitration Provision as written, the parties shall agree on a substitute arbitration organization. If the parties cannot agree, the parties shall mutually petition a court of appropriate jurisdiction to appoint an arbitration organization that will administer a proceeding under this Arbitration Provision as written applying the JAMS Rules. A single arbitrator will resolve the Dispute. Unless you and MAI agree otherwise, any arbitration hearing will take place in New York, New York. The arbitrator will honor claims of privilege recognized by law and will take reasonable steps to protect customer account information and other confidential or proprietary information. The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision that explains the arbitrator’s essential findings and conclusions. The arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties only if necessary for purposes of enforcing the arbitrator’s award. An arbitrator’s award that has been fully satisfied shall not be entered in any court.
f. Waiver of Class Actions and Collective Relief. THERE SHALL BE NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY CLAIMS TO BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON A CLASS ACTION, JOINT OR CONSOLIDATED BASIS OR ON BASES INVOLVING CLAIMS BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC (SUCH AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL), OTHER SUBSCRIBERS, OR OTHER PERSONS. THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF WARRANTED BY THAT INDIVIDUAL PARTY’S CLAIM. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING.
g. Arbitration Fees and Costs. If your claim seeks more than $75,000 in the aggregate, the payment of JAMS’s fees and costs will be governed by the JAMS Rules. If your claims seek less than $75,000 in the aggregate, the payment of JAMS’s fees and costs will be MAI’s responsibility. However, if the arbitrator finds that your Dispute was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), the payment of JAMS’s fees and costs shall be governed by the JAMS Rules and you shall reimburse MAI for all fees and costs that were your obligation to pay under the JAMS Rules. You may hire an attorney to represent you in arbitration. You are responsible for your attorneys’ fees and additional costs and may only recover your attorneys’ fees and costs in the arbitration to the extent that you could in court if the arbitration is decided in your favor. Notwithstanding anything in this Arbitration Provision to the contrary, MAI will pay all fees and costs that it is required by law to pay.
h. Severability and Waiver of Jury Trial. If any part of subsection (f) of this Arbitration Provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, the entire Arbitration provision will be unenforceable and the Dispute will be decided by a court. WHETHER IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION, YOU AND MAI AGREE TO WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW. If any other clause in this Arbitration Provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Arbitration Provision and the remainder of this Arbitration Provision will be given full force and effect.
i. Continuation. This Arbitration Provision will survive the termination or expiration of these Site Terms.
Notwithstanding any of these Site Terms, MAI reserves the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, to terminate your license to use the Site, and to block or prevent future your access to and use of the Site.
If any provision of these Site Terms shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Site Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
