Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration: PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS
Most user concerns can be resolved quickly and to the user's satisfaction by emailing Sportingindia support at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the unlikely event that our user support team is unable to resolve a complaint you may have (or if sportingindia has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally), we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration, mediation, or small claims court instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. Arbitration, which is often cheaper, faster and less formal than a lawsuit in court, uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Also, in any arbitration under this arbitration provision in which you seek less than Rs. 20,000 in damages, Sportingindia will pay reasonable attorneys' fees should you prevail. Sportingindia will not seek attorneys' fees from you. However, if you initiate an arbitration in which you seek more than Rs. 20,000 in damages, the payment of attorneys' fees will be governed by the applicable rules (as defined below). Any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted
