This Portal (including the Online Services and all other pages under such second level domain name, collectively, the "Portal") is provided by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") subject to these terms of use, the [Privacy Policy] and all modifications of either of the foregoing (collectively, the "Terms of Use"). By using this Portal, you ("You") and other users and visitors (together with You, the "Visitors"), including parties to arbitrations and arbitrators, are deemed to have agreed to these Terms of Use. 

Your access to some areas of the Portal ("Online Services") may be subject to certain membership and/or registration requirements in AAA's discretion. The Portal's Online Services includes an Internet-based alternative dispute resolution system through which You may have Your arbitration or mediation proceedings conducted online, as administered by AAA via AAA WebFile® ("WebFile"). Your use of Web File is subject to AAA's acceptance of Your online registration and Your agreement to these Terms of Use and the applicable AAA rules and dispute resolution procedures (including but not limited to the Supplementary Procedures for On-Line Arbitration, collectively, the "AAA Rules"), which are incorporated herein by reference. You shall pay to AAA all fees owing to AAA for Your use of the Online Services (including without limitation WebFile) in accordance with the AAA Rules. Such fees are nonrefundable.

You acknowledge and agree that in connection with Your use of the Portal, You must: (a) provide for Your own access to the World Wide Web and pay any service fees associated with such access, and (b) provide all equipment necessary for You to make such access and connection to the World Wide Web, including a computer, software and a means of connecting to or accessing the Internet. AAA shall not be responsible for any malfunctions, errors, crashes or other adverse events that may occur from Your use of the Portal.

This Portal contains content, including but not limited to that which is protected by trademarks, service marks, trade names, copyrights and other intellectual property rights owned by AAA and others ("Portal Content"). As between You and AAA, AAA is the sole owner of all rights, title and interest in and to Portal Content. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, Your use of the Portal does not grant to You a license to any Portal Content. You may not download, archive or save a copy of the Portal for any purpose, except You may download, print or make copies of individual screens and documents appearing as part of the Portal solely for Your own internal business purposes, provided that any marks, logos or other legends that appear on such screens and documents remain on, and are not removed from the downloaded, printed or stored screens or documents. Except as expressly permitted in these Terms of Use, You may not modify, copy, publish, translate, display, transmit, distribute, transfer, frame, adapt, create derivative works from or in any way exploit the Portal Content.

Any commercial exploitation of the Portal is strictly prohibited. 

Peer Groups, Visitor Content 
AAA may make available certain public and/or private forums such as bulletin boards, email lists or chat rooms (collectively, "Peer Groups") on the Portal. Use of any Peer Group is subject to these Terms of Use and any other notice or policy applicable to a particular Peer Group or Peer Groups in general. Information, data, text, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages and other content and materials that You may post to the Portal via e-mail, uploading, posting, chat room, bulletin board or otherwise, or that You otherwise supply to AAA shall be referred to herein as "Visitor Content." Visitors should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personal information (e.g., user name, e-mail address, phone number) on or through Peer Groups, that such information is generally accessible to and may be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other people. Visitors of the Portal are encouraged to exercise caution when providing personal information about themselves. You agree that AAA takes no responsibility and that You are solely responsible for the origination, accuracy, completeness, ownership, publication and dissemination of, and that You, and not AAA, are entirely responsible for, Your Visitor Content. By submitting or sending Visitor Content to the Portal or AAA You represent and warrant that such Visitor Content is original to You, that no other party has any rights to such Visitor Content and that such Visitor Content does not violate, infringe or misappropriate any third party right or applicable law. 

Subject to any confidentiality obligations of AAA with respect to Your use of the Online Services (including WebFile), by submitting or sending Visitor Content to AAA or otherwise making Visitor Content available for display on or through the Portal, You grant AAA the royalty-free, unrestricted, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive and fully sub-licensable right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform and display such Visitor Content (in whole or part) worldwide and/or to incorporate it in other works in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed, in connection with the Portal. You also warrant that any "moral rights" in posted materials have been waived. 

Other than under dispute resolution proceeding(s) and in connection with our e-voting Online Services, AAA does not solicit nor does it wish to receive any confidential, secret or proprietary information or other material from You through the Portal, any of its services, by e-mail, or in any other way, and any information or material submitted or sent to AAA will be deemed not to be confidential or secret. You agree and acknowledge that any ideas, concepts, methods, systems, designs, plans, techniques or other similar materials that You submit or otherwise communicate to the Portal, other than under Your arbitral proceeding(s), may be used by AAA in any manner. 
AAA does not pre-screen, monitor, review or otherwise edit Visitor Content posted, or otherwise made available, on or through the Portal. However, AAA (or a designee) reserves the right (but assumes no obligation) to, at its sole discretion, refuse, edit or remove any Visitor Content, in whole or part, that, in AAA's sole judgment, does not comply with these Terms of Use, is illegal, or is otherwise undesirable, inappropriate or inaccurate. AAA is not responsible for any failure, non-failure or delay in refusing, editing or removing such Visitor Content.

Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy ("Policy") sets forth the American Arbitration Association's ("AAA") policies regarding the collection and use of information via this Portal located at adr.org (including all pages under such second level domain name, collectively, the "Portal"). The Portal is generally accessible by all visitors ("Visitors"); however, portions of the Portal are only accessible by certain Visitors who register to use the AAA's online services ("Online Services"). Certain Visitors registered to use the Online Services include persons who use the AAA's Internet-based alternative dispute resolution facility, AAA WebFile SM ("WebFile") to submit a dispute for online arbitration or mediation (such Visitors or their representatives, the "Parties"). Only Parties may access the Web File area of the Online Services. Certain Visitors registered as arbitrators, mediators, or other neutrals with the AAA ("Neutrals") or registered voters may also access portions of the Online Services. Parties, Neutrals and all other Visitors registered to use the Online Services are referred to collectively herein as "Registered Visitors." Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the AAA Portal Terms of Use. 

INFORMATION: COLLECTION AND USE 

GENERAL 
Visitors (including without limitation Registered Visitors) understand and agree that AAA may collect, maintain, and process information provided by them to AAA, and information otherwise collected by AAA concerning such Visitors on and through the Portal and the Online Services (including but not limited to Web File). 

PUBLIC AREAS OF THE PORTAL 
All Visitors may visit the public areas of the Portal without disclosing any personal information about themselves. However, Visitors will have the opportunity to request to receive information from AAA, or to otherwise interact on or with the Portal, in which case an e-mail or other address or contact information or other personalized information may be collected in order to allow AAA to comply with the request, and for other purposes as may be disclosed at the time the request is made or otherwise as set forth in this Policy. Visitors may elect to opt-out from receiving marketing communications by (a) following the instructions in OPT-OUT CHOICES , below, (b) checking appropriate opt-in or opt-out boxes which may be provided on the collection form or (c) as set forth in the communication sent from AAA. 

ONLINE SERVICES REGISTRATION INFORMATION 
In order to participate in the Online Services, AAA requires Registered Visitors to have registered with the Online Services by, among other things, providing contact information such as (for illustration purposes only) user ID, password, name, title, department, business address, business telephone number, business e-mail address and other contact information ( "Registration Information" ) . From time to time Registered Visitors to AAAWebFile may review their Registration Information by visiting the AAAWebFile area of the Online Services and revise their Registration Information by contacting their case manager. Neutrals may review and revise their Registration Information by visiting the Neutrals eCenter area of the Online Services. Certain portions of the Registration Information concerning a Party will be used for evaluating qualifications for participation in online arbitration under Web File. AAA may also use Registration Information to communicate with all Registered Visitors regarding AAAWebFile proceedings, changes in Online Services functionality, features, billing, help desk and other activities relating to the operation of the Online Services. AAA may disclose the Registration Information of a Party to administrators, Neutrals and/or other Parties who are designated by such Party (through such Party's use of the AAAWebFile proceedings or otherwise) to be provided access to such information. At Your option, some portions of Your Registration Information may be made available to other Visitors of the Portal in online directories, search features and/or Peer Groups. AAA may also use Registration Information to send Registered Visitors information about products or services available on or through the Online Services and offers made available by AAA's partners, which may be sent by AAA. Instructions on how to request that AAA not send such future communications (not including communications necessary for the operation of the Online Services) or that AAA not share Registration Information with third parties for marketing purposes, are set forth in OPT-OUT CHOICES, below and, for AAA transmitted material which is unrelated to the operation of the Online Services, in each communication. 

CASE MANAGEMENT INFORMATION AND MATERIALS 
Privacy terms relating to confidential information and materials Parties and Arbitrators submit to WebFile (not including the rest of the Portal or any public areas of the Portal) in the course of an arbitral proceeding may be set forth in the AAA Rules and/or any other agreement between the Parties and Neutral(s). 

USAGE DATA 
AAA will record and collect information about how all Visitors use the Portal, including the Online Services. This data may include a Visitor's domain name, language, type of browser and operating system, Internet service provider, Internet protocol (IP) address, the Web site from which they arrived at the Portal, the amount of time spent on the Portal or using the Online Services and the ways in which they use the Portal or the Online Services (collectively, "Usage Data" ). AAA will monitor and use Usage Data in aggregated form to measure the Portal's performance and Online Services activity and improve the Portal's design and functionality. AAA may also use Usage Data in aggregated form to develop and distribute to third parties statistical and other information about how the Portal and Online Services are used and for other marketing purposes. AAA may also disclose aggregate Usage Data to other Visitors, Parties and Neutrals. AAA may also use Usage Data in un-aggregated form to investigate and prosecute security violations or to identify a particular Visitor or Registered Visitor who engaged in particular transactions. 

COOKIES 
"Cookies" are pieces of information that are placed on a Visitor's computer hard drive to enable the individual to more easily communicate and interact with the Portal, including but not limited to the Online Services and WebFile. AAA uses cookies to customize Your experience on the Portal. AAA also uses Cookies to record how many times a Visitor has visited our Portal and what pages the Visitor has accessed. You may, however, disallow receiving Cookies at any time through Your web browser, although this may affect the usability of the Portal. It is not AAA's intention to use Cookies to retrieve information that is unrelated to the Portal or Your interaction with the Portal. 

PEER GROUPS 
AAA may make available certain public and/or private forums such as bulletin boards, e-mail lists and chat rooms (collectively, "Peer Groups" ) on the Portal or the Online Services. Any and all information posted on or through a Peer Group will be generally accessible for viewing by others. Accordingly, participants are encouraged to exercise discretion when using Peer Groups. For more information regarding Peer Groups, see our Terms of Use

OPT-OUT CHOICES 
To "opt-out" of (1) receiving communications from AAA (except for communications necessary for the operation of the Portal, the Online Services, or as otherwise permitted under this Policy), (2) having contact information disclosed to third parties for marketing purposes (except as necessary for AAA to operate the Portal, Online Services, or as otherwise permitted under this Policy), or (3) any other consent previously granted for a specific purpose concerning Your personal information, send an email to the AAA Data Controller at websitemail@adr.org.

REVIEW/CHANGE CONTACT INFORMATION 
Requests to review or change Registration Information previously provided on or through certain portions of the Online Services may be made to the AAA by sending an email to the AAA Data Controller at websitemail@adr.org

LINKED SITES 
AAA may provide links to third parties' Web sites ("Linked Sites") from the Portal or the Online Services. Linked Sites are not necessarily reviewed, controlled or examined by AAA in any way and AAA is not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of any such Linked Sites, or any additional links contained therein. These links do not imply AAA's endorsement of or association with the Linked Sites. 

DISCLOSURE PURSUANT TO LAW 
AAA may make information concerning Visitors, the Portal, the Online Services (including AAA WebFile), and the uses thereof, available to law enforcement personnel and agencies as required by law or in order to enforce the Terms of Use, and may disclose such information if required by law or a judicial or governmental order or subpoena. Where permitted by law, AAA may also disclose such information to law enforcement personnel and agencies, or use such information as part of legal process, in order to protect its property or in furtherance of an investigation regarding a breach of the Online Services rules and policies or any unauthorized access to or use of the Portal or the Online Services (including AAA WebFile), or any illegal activities concerning a particular visitor or registered visitor. 

CONSENT TO PROCESSING 
By using or providing information to the Portal or the Online Services, all Visitors understand and unambiguously consent to the collection, processing and use of such information in the United States and other countries and territories, for the purposes of providing the Portal, the Online Services and related services and as otherwise set forth herein or in the AAA Rules. 

SERVICE PROVIDERS 
AAA may utilize third parties to provide or perform certain services and functions on the Portal and the Online Services (including AAA WebFile). For example, AAA may use a Web site tracking evaluation firm to analyze use of the Portal and the Online Services (including AAAWebFile) by all visitors and AAA may use third-party suppliers to provide certain functionality and services provided on the Online Services (including AAA WebFile). AAA will make information concerning Visitors and their use of the Portal and Online Services (including AAA WebFile) available to these service providers and business partners, as necessary, to perform these functions and services. The service providers may be located throughout the world; therefore information relating to Visitors may be sent worldwide to countries which have a level of privacy protection different to that of the U.S. or the country of residence of such visitor. 

TRANSFER OF INFORMATION 
In the event of a sale, merger, consolidation, reorganization, liquidation, dissolution, change of control or sale or transfer of the substantial assets of AAA, information collected via or stored on the Portal or the Online Services (including AAAWebFile) may be sold, assigned or transferred to a party acquiring all or substantially all of the equity and/or assets of AAA related to the Portal. AAA may also transfer such information to its subsidiaries and affiliates involved in the operation of the Portal or the Online Services. 

SECURITY 
AAA takes seriously the security of your personal information. AAA has therefore implemented technology and security policies and procedures intended to reduce the risk of accidental destruction or loss, or the unauthorized disclosure of or access to, such information, reasonably appropriate to the level of the data concerned. For example, the Portal implements 128 bit SSL technology to protect certain sensitive data that is transmitted via the Portal. However, due to the open communication nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that communications between You and the Portal, and the Portal and You, or data stored on AAA's systems, will be free from unauthorized access by third parties. 

In the unlikely event that AAA believes that the security of your personal information in AAA's possession or control may have been compromised, AAA may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, AAA would endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and, to the extent AAA has your email address, AAA may notify you by email. In the event that you use the online services for e-voting purposes, you assume the risk of breach of security that occurs despite AAA's efforts to maintain the security of such transactions. 

UPDATES TO THE PRIVACY POLICY 
AAA may, in its sole discretion, update this Policy at any time and from time to time, by posting the amended Policy on the Portal. The revised or amended Policy shall be effective upon posting. Any access to or use of the Portal or Online Services (including AAA WebFile) following such update shall be deemed consent to such update. All visitors are therefore encouraged to refer back to this page regularly. This Policy may not be otherwise amended without the written consent of AAA. 

CONTACT, QUESTIONS, & COMMENTS
If you would like to communicate with AAA regarding privacy issues or have questions or comments about this Policy, please forward such communication to websitemail@adr.org.
